In the Dark

"Please let me get pregnant!" Cat Seabright's biological clock is hollering at her to get on with it already. She has a profound desire for a baby, and a limited window of opportunity in which to make one. What she doesn't have is a significant other. That's where her pal's cousin comes in. Agreeable guy that he is, he promises to fly to New York from Alaska, do the deed, then promptly fly back out of her life.

All goes according to plan... except for the part about the agreeable guy from Alaska. Oh, there's a man in her bed, all right, a sexy, virile man who's more than up to the task. The thing is, a full-fledged New York City blackout has plunged their baby-making date into darkness, obscuring her view of the energetic stud. The next day Cat finds out Mr. Alaska never made it to New York!

So who the heck did she have sex with?

When she discovers the man's identity, and that she has to work closely with this particular bad boy for the next several weeks, all she can think is, "Please let me not be pregnant!"

A feel-good romantic comedy!

Golden Heart Finalist

Dedicated burn surgeon Kate Sinclair shields her tender heart behind a white coat and a coolly professional manner. But something about the little patient the nurses dub "Iron Man" and his vital flyboy father challenges her as a doctor and a woman.

Since the car crash that killed his wife and almost took his son, pilot Patrick MacNeill's life has revolved around his little boy. No one--no woman and certainly no interfering doctor--can intrude on their bond, forged in love and pain.

When little Jack's care brings these two together, it ignites a passion they can't ignore. But their growing involvement threatens Patrick's emotional barriers and Kate's professional future. With so much at stake, will she trust her judgment...or her heart?

***

He rested one hand on the wall above her, close enough for her to feel the warmth emanating from his body, close enough for his breath to touch her face. She saw his eyes, with their thick, short lashes, his pupils nearly swallowing the blazing blue. Her stomach squeezed into her chest, crowding her lungs. She couldn't breathe. She felt the warmth of his arm, close by her head. She heard her blood thundering in her ears, and the rasp of his quickly indrawn breath.

He kissed her.

It was over before she could say if she liked it, before she had time to react. He lifted his head, and she felt the absence of his mouth more keenly than she had felt its pressure a moment before.

"Well?"

She lifted her chin. She had to, to meet his gaze. "Well, what?"

His firm, well-shaped lips curved at the corners. "Are you going to object?"

She dug deep for a cool response, her hands pressed flat to the wall behind her. He was probably the most vital, potent man she'd ever met, and she was merely unattractive Katie Sue Sinclair, too smart for her own good and stupid with men. She couldn't let him see how he got to her, how she was affected by his nearness. He would eat her alive.

Maybe she wanted him to.

Owned by the Playboy: Billionaire Alpha Romance (Owned Series Book 1)

One Man. One Night. One dark fantasy that could change her life forever.

The wheels came off my life slowly at first. This is saying something, because it turns out they weren't screwed on all that tight to begin with. I thought I made all the right choices. But, life has a funny way of coming along and flattening you every so often no matter how smart or ambitious you are. All of a sudden, I found myself out of a job, out of a husband and out of time. Then a shocking encounter with a powerful billionaire gave me a second chance to turn it all around.

I told myself all these things as I sat in the back of a stretch limousine. Just outside the car door was an unassuming bungalow painted yellow. I was here for work. A probationary assignment of sorts. Once the car door opened, the rest of my life would start.

A man and my future waited for me somewhere inside that house, beyond the front door painted in festive red. Scarlet. A fitting color for what he wanted. For twelve hours and $100,000 he would own me. Just how much was I willing to give to this sexy, dangerous, perfect stranger? The answer might shock even me.

Just one night for a small fortune that could change everything, if I had the courage to walk through that red door.

This is my story. Don't try this at home.

Owned by the Playboy is the first book in the sexy, sensual, often humorous adventures of call girl, Nina Sharpe. Nina's stories go places you won't expect. This is not your typical romance.

Note: This book was previously published as "The Offer", Book One in the Call Girl, Inc. Series.
