Summary

In one family, generation after generation relied on the magic of one Norse ring to lead them to their destined match. For those who heed its advice, only joy and health follow. But the ring has also been known to foreshadow impending doom. Ignore its truth at your peril…. 
For former boxing contender, Q’orian “Storm” Jones, running a gym might not have been his first choice, but with a partial vision loss, his career options are limited. His new goal is to train professional boxers and get kids off the streets. Bonus: focusing long hours training clients in his men-only gym means that any chance of getting involved with another back-stabber like his conniving ex-girlfriend are nil. 
Until the day Celeste Warner walks into his gym. She claims she needs his help. But he doesn’t turn her away because she’s a dark-haired version of the woman he once loved. No. He turns her away because she’s a woman. 
A woman messed up his past; he certainly isn’t going to let another one ruin his future. 
Growing up with the story of a magic ring, Celeste rebuffs the signs when her late mother’s ring appears before her. She doesn’t want a mate; she’s known nothing but pain from her last boyfriend. But that stupid ring leads her to Storm’s Corner, a gym where Celeste decides that maybe learning how to punch certain ex-boyfriends might be beneficial. But the self-righteous owner, Storm, wants nothing to do with her. 
When Celeste’s ex gets released from prison, she knows she must follow the ring back to Storm’s Corner and plead her case. But the bruise on her arm is all the proof Storm needs to realize he must help Celeste, regardless of his mixed emotions. 
His bottom line is failing, even though he’s succeeding in getting kids off the streets. And with a felon breaking Celeste’s restraining order, Storm doesn’t know if she will even survive until her court date. 
Storm knows he can’t let anything happen to Celeste. 
But protecting someone who feels no self-worth is probably the hardest battle he’s ever fought.

    When Caroline Trent is kidnapped by Blake Ravenscroft, she doesn't even try to elude this dangerously handsome agent of the crown. After all, she's been running from unwanted marriage proposals. Yes, Blake believes she's a notorious spy named Carlotta De Leon, but for six weeks until her twenty-first birthday, when she'll gain control of her fortune, hiding out in the titillating company of a mysterious captor is awfully convenient -- and maybe just a little romantic, too. 
    Blake Ravenscroft's mission is to bring "Carlotta" to justice, not to fall in love. His heart has been hardened by years of intrigue, but this little temptress proves oddly disarming and thoroughly kissable. And suddenly the unthinkable becomes possible -- that this mismatched Couple might be destined for love.

    They call her Lady Unlucky… 
    With three dead fiancés, Lady Eva Hyde has positively no luck when it comes to love. She sets sail for New York City, determined that nothing will deter her dream of becoming an architect, certainly not an unexpected passionate shipboard encounter with a mysterious stranger. But Eva’s misfortune strikes once more when she discovers the stranger who swept her off her feet is none other than her new employer. 
    Or is it Lady Irresistible? 
    Phillip Mansfield reluctantly agrees to let the fiery Lady Eva oversee his luxury hotel project while vowing to keep their relationship strictly professional. Yet Eva is more capable—and more alluring—than Phillip first thought, and he cannot keep from drawing up a plan of his own to seduce her. 
    When a series of onsite “accidents” make it clear someone wants Lady Unlucky to earn her nickname, Phillip discovers he’s willing to do anything to protect her—even if it requires a scandalous deal…
