Two strangers on vacation. One intense attraction. No expectations, other than a night of mind-blowing passion.
Five years later, broke and desperate, Cora finds herself living a double life as she works at a kinky gentlemen’s club by night and as a PR specialist by day. A chance encounter at the club throws Cora into her mystery vacation man’s path once again. But the only problem is… he doesn’t remember her. And to top that, her man is none other than the CEO of Hayes & Meyer Media, James Hayes. Arrogant. Dominant. Mega rich. And, her new boss.
But Cora isn’t a quitter. And she will do anything to keep her job. She has to. She has people depending on her. All she has to do is stay away from James. Easy, right? If only she could ignore the tempting world of submission James has opened her eyes to…
Mina I don’t come from a happy place. My brother, Leon, and I were raised amongst criminals, our lives tainted with blood our father spilled. I never wanted that life, one filled with darkness and evil, but my brother was a different story. When I got pregnant, I made a promise that my child would never see that life. Five years ago, my worst nightmare came true, and Leon stepped in to save my baby. When it was all over, my baby safe in my arms, I knew what I had to do. I made him leave Houston, promising me to stay away. He kept his promise until two days ago. My brother showed up on my doorstep with his best friend, a man I hadn’t been able to get out of my head since meeting him three years ago by chance, and uprooted my life. Now, my daughter and I are in St. Louis, surrounded by Oasis, the street racing empire my brother and his friends built, unable to leave until the threat on Oasis is neutralized. Unfortunately for me, I’m nowhere near safe, and it has everything to do with my brother’s dangerous best friend. A man I shouldn’t want, but God help me, I do.
Dontell St. Louis was my home-always has been, always will be-and street racing was my life. Growing up, my life wasn’t perfect. My father was a member of the Crew, a street organization that protected St. Louis from outsiders, threats the law couldn’t get involved in. When I turned eighteen, I became a member. Six years ago, the Italian Mafia tried to take what was ours. Five years ago, Jeremy Jones needed an outlet, so we started a street racing circuit. Four years ago, Leon Torrance rolled into town, looking to race. Together, the three of us built Oasis, the street racing headquarters of St. Louis. Three years ago, Leon and I were on a run for the Crew when I saw her: the most beautiful woman I’d ever laid eyes on. Mina Torrance. Now she’s here, in St. Louis with her daughter, under our protection. The problem? Leon doesn’t know his sister is the woman haunting my dreams. And I can’t stay away from her.

I made a mistake. Hearts are the most fragile part of the body, and I trusted mine with Jude Carlisle.
My villain. My weakness. My stepbrother. Fairytales have a way of turning the most innocent things wicked.
Jude lied through his teeth, and I fell for every word. Then he burned both our families to the ground in a sick game of revenge and never looked back.
When I see him again years later—tattooed, pierced, as vicious and lethal as ever—I should know better. Except this time, I’m not the girl looking for a hero. And I’m tempted to let Jude eat me alive if it means I’ll finally be his.
I thought I knew the truth. I thought I unmasked all the monsters. I thought I understood how our story would end. But the trouble with wolves is they’re always lying. And what big lies mine told.
Growing up in a house full of brothers, it’s not a surprise that Alana Ashton is the princess of Hope Crest.
Being the only female of the small town’s founding family means that while she usually gets her way, she has to work doubly hard to earn and keep respect. Veering from her expected path to follow crazy dreams, like opening her own shop, not only isn’t in the cards, it’s also not taken seriously. So when her best friend, the ex-high school quarterback with a smile of gold and a traumatic past, proposes marriage out of the blue after years of Alana not-so-secretly pining after him, the answer isn’t an automatic no.
Marrying him, and the fortune they’ll both inherit if she specifically says I do, could be just the thing to set her vision in motion. But can she keep their decades-long relationship strictly business, or will those long unrequited feelings fool her into thinking this union will be for life?
Warren Teal is the orphan no one wanted but everyone speculated about.
After his father tragically took his mother from him, Warren’s story has been broadcast in the media for years. Cue the Ashtons, who took him under their wings the first time Alana brought him home in middle school. Years later, Hope Crest’s royal family offered him a job at their renowned restaurant, and Warren thought he’d found the quiet, under-the-radar life he’d always been searching for.
Until the day he received a letter leaving him a fortune. There was just one catch; he must marry to receive it. And not just anyone, but the gorgeous, stubborn woman he’d always loved in secret but never felt worthy of. Knowing he could return the favor and grant her wildest dreams, he popped the question.
But when his past comes for the future they’re building, she gets caught in the crossfires of the danger and darkness meant for him. Divorce, and breaking his own heart, seem like the only options to keep her safe.
Even if doing so means he may never get to confess that their fake marriage is the realest love he’s ever experienced.
