Twin of Fire
While dreaming of practicing medicine, Blair falls in love with her placid sister's fianceé, himself a doctor. Blair's impetuous spirit has won her a medical degree in a man's world -- and captured Lee Westfield's heart. But even as the couple's ardor grows, there are nights when Lee disappears only to return exhausted, haunted. His silence imperils their love, but the truth would imperil her life.
Twin of Ice
Happily betrothed to Dr. Lee Westfield, Houston is every bit the good girl she was raised to be. So when faced with Kane Taggert's brash marriage proposal, Houston is outwardly shocked. But beneath her gracious demeanor lies a woman of hidden longings -- and her defenses begin to melt the second this rugged stranger touches his hungry lips to hers.
Sweet Liar tells the story of Samantha Elliot and Michael Taggart, whose first encounter in the courtyard of Mike's New York City townhouse is the sexiest kiss either of them has ever experienced, and whose relationship from that moment on is just as stormy and exciting.
The plot of this Yuletide confection revolves around a passionate fling that erupts by chance between wealthy young Hollander "Holly" Latham and mysterious Nick Taggert when they meet at the site of an old plantation. Holly, who inherited a passion for restoring old homes as a teenager -- the same year she fell in love with Lorrie Beaumont -- has persuaded her parents to buy the Spring Hill Plantation, a property that has seen better days. But Holly's interest in restoring the plantation is surpassed by her desire to rekindle a relationship with her new neighbor, Lorrie. Nick Taggert, a handsome doctor masquerading as a trucker, is hiding out from the aftermath of a bad breakup by riding a motorcycle and staying in a friend's garage in the area. The two first meet when Holly falls into an old cistern, and Nick comes to her rescue. But nothing is what it seems to be in this romance with a dash of mystery and threat. Are the money and status that Lorrie offers enough to make Holly turn her back on the powerful attraction she feels to Nick? The love triangle comes to a peak on a tumultuous Christmas Eve.

01 - An Arabian Marriage
Nanny Frederica Sutton was living happily with toddler Ben, the son of her deceased cousin. But the minute that Jaspar Al Hasayn stalks into her apartment--all smoldering gorgeousness and arrogance--her happy little world is blown apart when she discovers that Ben is part of the Quamar royal lineage and a prince's son--and she could lose him forever.
When Jaspar's family decides to take matters into their own hands and kidnaps Ben, Freddy is both heartbroken and furious. If getting little Ben back means blackmailing Jaspar into marrying her, then so be it!
As much as Freddy hates her cool-mannered new husband, there's something about his feral golden eyes--and she finds herself returning to his bed, night after ravenous night. Freddy's not just sleeping with the enemy--she's married to him.
02 - The Disobedient Mistress
Caterer Misty Carlton is in serious trouble. Her business is on the rocks and the only man who can save her butt is Leone Andracchi-- an arrogant, infuriating and temptingly hot Sicilian tycoon. Leone knows exactly how precarious Misty's situation is--and he's about to take advantage of it. He offers her a deal that seems deceptively easy. Misty plays obedient mistress to Leone--strictly hands off, of course, and only for the sake of the public eye. In return for keeping up the charade, Misty gets a sizable chunk of cash and gets to keep her business. What Misty doesn't know is that she's part of a revenge scheme, aimed at discrediting her biological father.
The hands-off factor is becoming a problem because every time Misty and Leone begin arguing heatedly, their bodies and lips take over. Sure, it makes for great press--but how can Misty lust for someone she so thoroughly despises?

Unbeknownst to anyone outside of the Gakis family, Ione was adopted and has been fostered in an abusive and neglectful environment--a desperate prisoner on her tyrannical father's luxurious island. Marriage to Alexio can mean only one thing: escape. And if that means marrying a complete stranger and fleeing to England to find her real family, then the sooner Ione can get that wedding ring on her finger, the better.
But despite his compassion for Ione, Alexio won't tolerate a runaway wife. And he's going to make damn sure Ione never leaves his side--or his bed!
