One irresistible night, and I'm f*cked.

Damon



As a professional football player, I have it all.

Money. Fame. Women.

But I still think about Emilia, my best friend's sister, the one I spent a crazy fun night with five years ago. But then she's out of my life as quickly as she entered it.

When I run into her again, I can't take my eyes off her. She looks more beautiful than ever.

She slipped through my fingers before.

This time, I'm not willing to let her go.

Emilia



I haven't seen Damon, my brother's best friend for five years.

After that sinful night, things got out of control.

So I ran away.

I need something else in my life.

I need a man; Jeremy needs a father.

That's when Damon walks back into my life.

He's sexier now, more mature, and more ripped than ever.

The intial spark will engulf them...

Desmond Russell. Arson investigator. The best Australia has. Cool, calm, collected and utterly poised. Nothing intimidates him. He knows fire like he knows his own body and soul. Sent to the small Outback town of Wallaby Ridge to investigate the complete destruction by fire of the Australian Deputy Prime Minister's cattle station homestead, he clashes with Jess Montgomery, captain of the local fire brigade, a feisty woman no taller than his chin, with wild red hair and a mouth like a drunken sailor.

Jess has a major dislike of arson investigators, especially ones from the big smoke. Two years ago her brother died in a fire she knew wasn't an accident, but the investigator who arrived from the city--a smug bastard who looked down on the people of Wallaby Ridge even as he reeked of scotch--said it was. She doesn't trust Desmond Russell to investigate his own arse, let alone a fire that destroyed the Deputy PM's Outback homestead. And when she learns Desmond is the son of the drunken investigator who dismissed her claims of arson in her brother's case...well, she's not going to let him waltz in and take over.

The initial spark will engulf them both...but will their hearts survive the inferno?

This contemporary erotic romance contains sexy Australian firefighters, mystery and suspense, and is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Bury the Hatchet: Volume 1 (Tulsa Thunderbirds)

He was poised to be an elite goalie for a contending team. Hunter Fielding has long since proven himself to be one of the best goaltenders in the NHL. The problem? His former team had another (slightly better) backstop. They left Hunter out to dry, the upstart Tulsa Thunderbirds claimed him in the expansion draft, and he made a few stupid comments about backasswards Oklahomans. Now the T-Birds say the only way he can redeem himself is to make nice for the media with some local goody two shoes who's made some mistakes of her own. Oklahoma's sweetheart could do no wrong until she could do no right. Tallulah Belle Roth was the reigning Miss Oklahoma USA until a night of out-of-control drinking, a naked foray in a hot tub with very bad boy, and a bunch of lowlights on TMZ. Now she's been stripped of her crown and is facing the censure of the same people who made her out to be Little Miss Perfect. Tallie won't ever get her title back, but her life is another matter-and the only way the public will allow her to do that is if she presents herself as happily settled with someone else under Oklahoma's eye. The marriage is to be in name only-one year of sickeningly-sweet lovey-dovey PDA, all to get their detractors to bury the hatchet. Those kisses and tender moments for the cameras take an emotional toll, though. Can in name only be enough?
