Young love ignites more than just romance
Dillon Walker's life is all about the plan. Finish high school with honors, stay out of trouble, and make his dad proud of him by following in his footsteps. A boyfriend doesn't figure into it—can't figure into it. Not with a homophobic dad, and a group of friends ready to discipline every queer they come across.
But a chance encounter while snowboarding ignites a long-standing infatuation, turning all of Dillon's plans upside down.
What readers are saying:
"Admittedly, this is not original, but I adored it to bits. The style and romance and characters were lovely. Great writing and a great romance."
I've found a woman I can't live without.
It's not just about the things we do in the bedroom.
But the way she looks at me.
The way she touches me.
The way she loves me.
Maybe I can have what Titan has.
Maybe I can have even more.

As sparks fly, their genuine affection for each other grows, and Gavin begins to break down Blake’s defenses. But can Blake open up to reveal the damage she’s worked so hard to conceal?

USA Today bestselling author Gayle Callen creates an unforgettable story of mistaken identity and irresistible attraction in this first in a wonderfully engaging series set in the Scottish Highlands.
Shaken from sleep during the night and bundled off to the Highlands by a burly Scot, Riona is at first terrified, then livid. Hugh McCallum insists they were promised to each other as children to ensure peace between their clans. The stubborn laird refuses to believe he's kidnapped the wrong Catriona Duff. Instead, he embarks on a campaign of slow-burning seduction.
At first, Hugh cares only what their marriage can do for his people. Now he's starting to crave Riona for her own sake, but her true identity jeopardizes his clan's contract. And unless she chooses to risk all to be his bride, he'll lose the only thing he prizes more than the lands he's fought so hard to save—the passionate marriage they could have together.
