Summary

After a devastating stillbirth and longing for a second child, English professor Joy explores Granada, Spain, hoping to ease her heartbreak and rekindle her relationship with her husband, Richard. Instead, their trip leads to an erotic interlude between Joy and a handsome stranger—and Richard, filled with disappointment at his disintegrating marriage, embarks on an affair with vivacious Belinda, their tryst unfolding in a series of cheap hotel rooms.

After learning of Richard’s affair, Joy divorces him and moves to Virginia. Despite her lingering bitterness over his infidelity, Joy is inspired by the centuries-old love story between Sultan Suleyman and his Russian concubine, Roxelana, and in traveling to Istanbul with Richard finds herself attracted to him anew. However, Richard has a confession: Belinda, although out of his life for several years, has had his daughter—a now-three-year-old named Karma—and, critically ill, has asked that Richard and Joy take Karma. Joy agrees to travel to Tunisia with Richard—and when they arrive, Belinda divulges the shocking truth about her daughter to Joy.

    Harper King is like most humans—she works hard at her job and does her best not to think too much about the Krinar. The mysterious aliens took over her planet five years ago, and since then, rumors have surrounded them… whispers of super strength and speed, incredible beauty, and advanced technology. Harper should hate them, since her parents died the day they invaded, but something about the infamous Krinar fascinates her. Little does she know that the sinfully gorgeous drifter who rescues her from a bar fight will give her the close encounter she’s always dreamed of.
     
     
     
    Sef is supposed to be infiltrating a human resistance group, not seducing sweet little human females. But from the moment he sets eyes on Harper, he knows he must have her and will do anything to possess her. Using his human disguise, he lures Harper into his arms and his bed. When it’s far too late for her to escape him, he reveals that he’s a Krinar, one of the powerful and terrifying aliens she’s always wanted to meet. He gives her a choice: to save her brothers, she must give herself to him—heart, body, and soul.
     
     
     
    Will she choose her dark, seductive alien lover to save her family? Or will she resist the secret desires of her own heart in order to be free?

    No one keeps the Clan Gunn motto closer to his heart than its war chief, Jamie Gunn.

So when word arrives that his aunt Ailis has been kidnapped for hiding a woman in her abbey, he takes to his steed at once. 
    Lady Gilliane de Verrill came to the abbey seeking refuge from Guy de Orbrec, the cruel Norman despot who stole her hand in marriage on her father’s deathbed. When her only source of protection turns away Orbrec’s men and is kidnapped, Lady Gilliane knows there is only one thing she can do. Bearing responsibility for Ailis’ life on her shoulders, she rides off to seek help, with Orbrec’s men hot on her heels. 
    When the two meet by chance in the woods, they encounter in each others eyes more danger than even Guy de Orbrec could provide.
