There are some things you just don’t do, and falling for a man like Wyatt James is one of them.
The man is obviously too old for me, far too experienced, and as unattainable as the stars in the sky. Yet, I can’t stop the fluttering of excitement low in my belly every time he looks my way, or this incessant need I have to be near him.
Falling for Wyatt is easy. It’s everything that comes after that’s hard. Sometimes, the choice to stay with the man you love is out of your hands. Sometimes, the past mistakes of other people can leave an impact, even generations later. Sometimes, trying to be with the man you love can only end in heartbreak.
Sometimes, I don’t care.
There are very few things in my life I can’t control. Loving Emery is one of them. What started as a chance meeting turned into a defining moment I can never turn back from. There’s no denying that this tiny girl got to me in ways no one else has ever done before. Falling for her is easy. It’s trying to convince her to stay that’s hard. Sometimes, love isn’t enough. Sometimes, the past mistakes of other people can take away the one thing you cherish most. Sometimes, stories are written down to end in tragedy.
Sometimes, I don’t care.
Notorious for his stern demeanor and inflexible honor, former soldier Ian Hamilton, the Viscount Warrick journeys to London for one purpose–the permanent and irreversible downfall of the siren who caused his brother’s death.

A spirited gypsy lady…
The granddaughter of a Romani princess, Evangeline Caruthers endures the bon ton’s disdain and numerous indecent propositions with grace and poise. But when the dastardly Lord Warrick plots her ruination, she’s finished with propriety and politeness. To make matters worse, the handsome lord becomes caught in his own snare which forces them into a marriage neither wants…or do they?
A love that transcends betrayal…
When their lives are suddenly in danger, they must trust each other and their love. But can Vangie forgive Ian? Or will Ian’s regrets keep them from finding the happiness they both crave?
She’s the woman of his dreams. If only she didn’t despise him…
Everything has always come easily to Caleb James. Everything, that is, but Mary Walker. Her stunning beauty and independent nature enticed him from the start—and yet every romantic overture he made went so horribly awry that she can now barely tolerate him. But that’s all about to change. He has the perfect plan to redeem himself. When she arrives at his family estate, he’ll finally be able to win her heart. Too bad he’s not the only one there with the very same idea…
The last thing Mary wants is time alone with the insufferable Caleb. But since he’s one of her twin’s best friends, declining his invitation is out of the question. She’ll just have to do her best to ignore the charismatic, overly confident rogue. Only…he’s not acting like a rogue this time. Surely the little glimpses she catches of his softer, kinder side are an act…right?
Can Caleb and Mary overcome years’ worth of misunderstandings and missteps—not to mention a persistent rival for Mary’s affections—to find their very own happily ever after? Or, when all is said and done, will The Charming Rogue be left alone once again?

Did you hear the one about the rich parents who sent their kid to conversion therapy? You didn’t? Well, that’s because it’s not funny. And it didn’t work.
I’m a trust fund baby. The boy with the summer trips to France, the Mercedes for his sixteenth birthday, and the fancy degree from Georgetown. I have everything. But my family didn’t believe me when I came out. I’ve lived my truth for years, but they just don’t get it.
The moment I see Jesse Boatwright, though, I start forming a plan. Jesse needs cash, and I need a date for my sister’s debutante ball. But Jesse dislikes everything about me. He says I’m rich and spoiled, and I was born with a silver spoon shoved straight down my throat. That’s fine. He’s just my date.
But when Jesse kisses me, his lips tell a different tale. I can feel the depth of his need, the desire in his veins. I wish I could block out the world and hold him forever, but he keeps pushing me away. He tells me he’s a freak, a screw-up, a liar, that we could never be together. There are secrets Jesse is keeping; I just don’t know what they are yet.
When I finally discover the terrors that lie in his past, Jesse is already part of my story. I’m head over heels, falling hard, and ready to show Jesse that he’s exactly the man I need.
I lied to get a job. Well, it’s bigger than that. I lied copiously to get a job, and my boss is the hottest guy I’ve ever seen.
Will Marshall is everything I never wanted. His blood is Confederate blue, and his parents own the Country Club of Virginia. His money dates back to Queen Victoria, and I’d rather not imagine his family’s history when it comes to civil rights.
But Will is kind and strong, and those bedroom eyes make me want to drop out of my office chair. He’s beautiful, and not just physically. Every inch of him is good and pure, and I’m filled with lies.
I haven’t been with a guy since my ex gave me a black eye, burned all my stuff, and stole my cat. I don’t have money to pay rent, and I don’t have a degree from anywhere, let alone a doctorate in physical therapy. I’m not half the person Will thinks I am.
But I’m falling in love with him. I can’t let him know that. After the deb ball, I need to quit this job and leave town before he finds out what I really am.
When he holds me, though, I feel real again, like a person worth loving. When danger is on the horizon, I just have to decide if Will Marshall is worth the risk.
