As the writer of a soap opera, Debra Barry had no trouble controlling the lives of her characters, bringing them grief or happiness with the stroke of her pen. But finding happiness for herself . . . that was a different matter.
Graham Reid was the carpenter hired to redesign her newly purchased country house, but he soon began to redesign her life as well. The magic his hands could work with wood was wonderful, but the magic they created against her silken skin was something more--it was a miracle of love.

SHE WOULD ALWAYS BE HIS AURORA!
As beautiful and uncontrollable as nature's wonder that bore her name. As naive and reckless as that first sensual awakening that drew them together, leaving them powerless .... Aurora Matthews accepted the challenge of the Yukon, but could she handle the passion that she had unleashed in Eric Clarkson, a man as fierce and unyielding as the wilderness that surrounded them?

They were enemies--adversaries who would soon face each other across the courtroom in a taut murder trial... one arguing for the prosecution; the other for the defense.
Yet Laura Grandine found this commanding giant of a man irresistible. And he lived up to his reputation--he could have his way with any woman... even Laura, who stood at the crossroads of her career. She had to remember that she was, above all things, a lawyer, or Maxwell Kraig would make her forget everything she had worked so hard to achieve. Each day he presented her with new evidence of her passionate response.
Was he building a case for seduction, or love?

Three weeks on sequestered jury duty looked like heaven to Abby Barnes, who had problems she was only too eager to leave behind. Then she met fellow juror Ben Wyeth and suddenly she had a new problem--one she was forced to confront.
Love didn't come easy to Ben, but never before had he met a woman as giving, as loving--as right for him--as Abby. He was afraid to commit himself and unable to let go. It was up to Abby to teach him how very much it meant to give in to emotion and hold on--forever.

Independent and always in control, Riley Taylor makes no apologies for choosing men carefully. Relationships have never been a priority and she believes herself hardened to domineering men - until she meets charismatic Ian Dare.

Delilah Marvelle - Night of Pleasure (School of Gallantry #4) (2014)
An arranged marriage is daunting, but not as daunting as seducing a spouse whose passions you do not understand...
Derek Charles Holbrook, Viscount Banfield, knew his fate since he was seventeen when his father announced his union to the beautiful but mysterious American girl by the name of Miss Grey. To protect the troubled estate, Derek submits to his father's wishes, not realizing he's about to entangle himself in a hell of a lot more than marriage.
Miss Clementine Henrietta Grey may be worth millions, but not a single coin has ever bought her a smidge of happiness. When she marries the charismatic and dashing Viscount Banfield, whose only strife in life appears to be the uneven seams in his coat, she finds that siring the heir he wants requires far more than her heart is prepared to give.
Unable to seduce his overly-serious and reluctant wife, Derek realizes his dreams of creating a loving family has turned into a nightmare. But with the unexpected assistance of a retired courtesan and her outrageous school, Derek and Clementine discover that passion is a language spoken not just from the body, but from the mind, heart and soul.
