    Some things are sexier the second time around 
    Cal Payton has gruff and grumbly down to an art...all the better for keeping people away. And it usually works. Until Jenna Macmillan—his biggest mistake—walks into Payton and Sons mechanic shop all grown up, looking like sunshine, and inspiring more than a few dirty thoughts. 
    Jenna was sure she was long over the boy she'd once loved with reckless abandon, but one look at the steel-eyed Cal Payton has her falling apart all over again. Ten years may have passed, but the pull is stronger than ever...and this Cal is all man. 
    Cal may have no intention of letting Jenna in, but she's always been his light, and it's getting harder to stay all alone in the dark. When a surprise from the past changes everything, Cal and Jenna must decide if their connection should be left alone, or if it's exactly what they need for the future of their dreams.

    Billionaire Brothers Kent, Book 3 
    (Ridge's Story) 
    As a research scientist it is Lani Donatelli's dream to make a difference in the lives of people suffering from neurodegenerative diseases.  There;s only one problem, and it's a huge one - she's lost her funding from the big pharmaceutical companies and her research lab is in danger of closing down.  Without funding her experiments are at a standstill. On top of that, she has one month to come up with the money to clear months of arrears with the leasing company before she and her team are evicted.  In desperation, she turns to the one man she knows can save her skin. But is she willing to pay the price he demands? 
    As a co-member of a Houston school board, Ridge Kent has admired Lani Donatelli for months.  She, however, can't stand him.  According to her, he's nothing but a joker and an annoying one at that. Their disagreements at board meetings don't help since the constant conflict builds a brick wall between them. He wants to get to know her better but how can he, when all their interactions have been the polar opposite of positive? And then, like a heaven-sent miracle, lovely little Lani falls right into his hands. She has nowhere to turn but to him. He is willing to help on one condition - Lani Donatelli must become his wife. 
    Bride by blackmail - a recipe for disaster or an unexpected chance for love?

    The Fix: Carolina Connections, Book 1 
    How do you take a chance on love when every other decision you've ever made has been the wrong one? 
    Laney Monroe's life looks nothing like she'd planned. She certainly hadn't pictured herself as a twenty-five-year-old single mom with a boring job, a freeloading brother, and an exhibitionist son who worries more than Shaggy and Scooby Doo put together. When her brother finally steps up and applies for a job, Laney never imagines it might lead to an opportunity for her as well - an opportunity at love. 
    Nate Murphy has always been about family. When you come from an Irish family, it's hard not to be. But when a family emergency brings him home to North Carolina, Nate is faced with some difficult choices. Can you choose what you want over what your family needs? Then sexy, curvy Laney Monroe walks onto his construction site and Nate decides that she just might make those choices a hell of a lot easier - or maybe this girl will make life more complicated than ever.

    Charlie Cross is the reigning queen of dirty talk. As a phone sex operator, she’s fielded every kink and fetish in the book. Nothing fazes her. Okay, not entirely true. There’s one client who’s gotten under her skin. Grady. He’s dangerously close to peeling back the layers she’s worked so hard to keep hidden. And the last thing she needs is for him to discover the truth—how completely imperfect she is. 
    Grady The Grinder Montana. With a name like that he must be a stripper, right? Guilty as charged. He’s damn good at it, too. Forget moves like Jagger, his make the Benjamins rain. Women scream his name every night. On stage or in bed, the result’s the same. Not one damn bit of it matters, though. The only real thing in his life is Charlie. With her, he’s only Grady. The Grinder doesn’t exist. Their relationship is uncomplicated, liberating, and...perfect. 
    Until the day their worlds crash together. No illusions. No safety nets. Just two damaged, dirty, perfectly imperfect people about to fall hard. Love isn’t always pretty. Sometimes it’s messy and real. And exactly what you need.
