I've never been one to lust after guys. But Lewis is six and a half feet of rugged man, and he's...eye-catching. Sexy. And silently brooding in all the best ways.
The more time I spend with him, the naughtier my thoughts are of us together, and he's not helping put a stop to it. It's infuriating. I'm fantasizing, and lusting, and I can't remember why I wanted to stay away.
But Lewis carries his own relationship baggage. Baggage that could break me in ways no ex-boyfriend ever did.
Despite all the reasons I shouldn't get involved, Lewis might be the one man I can't resist.
He tugs down his shorts--and goes completely naked.
He glances up. "You can stay in your panties. I'm getting clean... What? I trust you not to grope me." He grins.
"Hot, funny, infuriating and omg where can I get one please..." ~ Amazon Reviewer

Wes was born with a competitive streak. Ever since he could walk, he's made it a point to never lose.
And he never did, until his girlfriend left him senior year of college and his professional sports career tanked.
Four years later, the last thing Wes needs as he prepares for the game of his life is his ex-girlfriend sauntering into his resort on the arm of her new fiancé. Then again, this might be Wes's opportunity to win back what he's lost.
Because if there's a chance Wes was wrong about Kaylee and she really had loved him, maybe he can break his mental block and win back his game--and the girl.
“This book was laugh-out-loud funny, but also tender and touchingly romantic.” ~ Amazon Reviewer
Oh God. “You seemed to have… acquired new skills.”
“Shhh, Kaylee,” he said low. Seductive. His breaths passing over her tender flesh. “We don’t want anyone to find us here.”
Until I saw Jaeger for the first time in years, and sparks flew in the wrong direction.
Jaeger has grown up and bulked up. But that shouldn't matter, because I have the perfect life. Really.
Only my plans are beginning to unravel and now visions of Jaeger's hard abs, broad shoulders, and intense green eyes fill my head.

“Yes. We might want to do it again.”
His gaze was on her chest and moving lower. “I’m willing to take a chance if you are.”
Zach pushes me away the moment sparks fly, and sparks have been flying since the day we met. For some aggravating reason, he's intentionally keeping me at a distance.
The way I see it, I have two options. I can leave town and make a fresh start, or I can show Zach how right we are for each other. The problem is, one of those options has the potential to ruin the best friendship I've ever had.
But I'm considering risking it all for love.
"Nessa." His voice is a strangled growl.
"This shouldn't be a big deal. You said you're not attracted to me," I remind him.
"I didn't say that."

Ireland needs a fresh start, and her cousin convinces her to take a chance on a charismatic bad-boy with a wicked boat and a killer body. But when Ireland shows up for the popular Lake Tahoe booze cruise he runs, she finds his handsome older brother at the helm instead.
Bran likes things structured and predictable. Especially after the mistakes he made ten years ago. But his father's recent passing threw his calm life into chaos, and now Bran is in charge of the family's five-star restaurants. He's been grasping to get things back to status-quo ever since.
He has no idea how much more complicated life will get.
Flame-haired Ireland is exactly the type of beautiful woman Bran has programed himself to avoid. But when she falls into his lap on a booze cruise his brother asked him to cover, the boat isn't the only thing tossed by the water. Bran's heart goes overboard as well.
Headstrong Ireland is nothing Bran wants, and everything he needs.
"These Cade brothers don't fall easily, but they do fall hard." ~ Knightly Reading
Bran stretched his neck and let out a sigh. “I’m sorry… About the boat incident.”
“You mean the kiss?”
“I meant the hands. The kiss had been coming.” The corner of his mouth quirked.
“I liked the hands,” she said, her blood boiling with annoyance. “It was the words out of your mouth I could have done without.”
Bran’s eyes darkened. “Good to know. Next time, less talking and more touching.” Ireland’s jaw dropped.“Who says there will be a next time?”
“You didn’t say there wouldn’t.”
There's nothing Fae despise more than the half-breed called Halven, a race of lesser beings produced by the mating of a Fae and a human.
Only now those Halven are looking more useful each day, because a deadly virus unleashed in Faery is killing immortal Fae, and the one person capable of healing them is a Halven living on Earth.
A mere slip of a girl named Elena Rosales descended from a royal Fae line known for their powerful magic, and she'll come into her ability soon. An ability that could destroy the virus--if she can master it.
Her only shot at learning to control her magic and creating a cure? Enlisting the help of her brooding, though brilliant, chemist neighbor, Derek, who rivals the Fae in masculine beauty.
But when Elena and Derek get together, more than chemicals spark fire. They soon discover how complicated attraction can get when they find themselves on the other side of the portal, enemies by birthright, and fighting for survival.

Humans are inferior.
A scourge on the Fae and on the magic passed down to them by angels millennia ago.
Keen won’t add to the half-breed problem that threatens his people’s existence by giving in to his attraction to Reese.
Reese can’t stand Keen. He criticizes her clothing, won’t answer a straight question, and is too handsome for her peace of mind. Her entire life, Reese has been pegged for a shallow, ditzy blond. She won’t take the stereotype from the arrogant Fae too.
But when her life is threatened, Reese sees a side of Keen that is protective and dangerously seductive. And she wonders what else lies beneath the soldier’s hard exterior.
The Fae realm’s battle for power forces Keen to make a choice: betray his people, or lose Reese forever.
