A tale of redemption, adventure, secrets, desire, and love in Regency London.
Four years ago, Ethan is nothing but a preacher’s kid, broke as a church mouse with a staggering IQ and a one-way ticket to hell. Scarlett is the heavily guarded State Attorney General’s daughter and a beautiful ballet dancer who took Ethan’s breath away. Bold, intense, and all-consuming, their love defies forbidden boundaries.
Then one night, everything changes. She loses her mind, destroys his life, and disappears, and Ethan’s world comes crashing down.
Now the most respected tech entrepreneur of his time, Ethan has the world at his feet– 27 billion at 27, as they say. Scarlett, now twenty-one, has returned to the U.S to dance and–if she can muster the courage–to make things right with Ethan. But instead of the boy she left behind, she comes face to face with a gorgeous, fiercely controlled man with the lethal power to command any woman’s attention. Could he still have time for the sheltered ballerina he once loved so deeply?
Torn between revenge and desire, Ethan can’t deny their chemistry. The lust between them is inescapable. While their passion soars, deception and lies unfold to reveal the truth behind Scarlett’s disappearance. Together, they will face the dirty truth that has kept them apart, and in a stunning exchange of power, Ethan must decide if revenge could ever be sweeter than her.

How far would you go to save someone you love? Would you give up your body? Your mind? Your heart?
I did and it cost me everything.
He says he owns me. And it’s true.
I’ve signed over complete control of my body and life for six months to a man I don’t know. Five years he’s been planning this. They say revenge is a dish best served cold. But my blackmailer serves it up white hot. He’s addicted to my innocence, and I’m addicted to him.
He likes to hurt me. I love to let him. He brings me to life. He sets me free. He makes my heart feel things it shouldn’t.
But he also scares me. He holds the fate of my brother’s life in his hands. A life behind bars for crimes I know he didn’t commit. My blackmailer can’t give up his revenge on my family, and I can’t be with him if he doesn’t. But I’m nothing more than a butterfly caught in his net. Do I really have a choice?
I’m cursed. There’s no cure for what ails me. I’m part man, part draugar; a Viking warrior shifter who protects the dead. I’m a selfish bastard, numb to the world around me, surviving only to avenge my wife and mother’s murder. One emotion —anger—keeps me alive. At least, it did until I met TJ Knight and my icy heart began to beat once more.
I was all wrong for her yet I craved her in ways I never imagined. So making a deal with her to save that cute ass from a death mark probably wasn’t the smartest thing I’d ever done. If I could manage to keep my hands off her, I might just stay in one piece.
The other thing? It turns out we have a mutual enemy. If we can work together, we might be able to find and destroy him. Trouble is, now it seems I have to kill TJ to give her a chance at living. Killing was my favourite thing but bringing her back to life? Now that might prove a problem…

His prime suspect is Cindy Chase, the paranormal fire starter who captured his heart, and then set his house ablaze before vanishing.
…and the woman he used to love as his prime suspect…
When he finally catches her, Jack faces his biggest challenge yet. To not believe her when she claims to be innocent, or fall for her tempting seduction.
A chance to live again, love, and fight back–if Caroline Brecher's spirit can survive… A man who loves her, but knows the battle is not only for justice but for the woman she had been…
“Caroline Brecher is every woman–and human being–whose courage and will to live and love again are tested when the unimaginable–and unendurable–strikes out of nowhere.”
To Caroline Brecher, her weekend house in fashionable East Hampton is a symbol of success and the reward of hard work. Arriving on a perfect August afternoon, she doesn't care that she has no social plans, no date, no visitors. But suddenly she does have visitors–terrifying visitors, and her life becomes a surreal torment, “the perfect torture of a woman…”
Will the soul-destroying ordeal ever end? Is there escape? Can what has been done to her and her very concept of herself as a woman ever be avenged? Can the love of a tough ex-Marine who conceives a passion for Caroline save her–even from herself–as their affair blazes into life in the presence of deadly danger?
