Haunted by my past, I came close to ruining my best friend’s life.
To atone for my sins, I had to return to the place where it all began.
Unexpectedly, solace arrived as a crying girl with purple hair, a haunting link to my history that rendered her untouchable.
Her plea for help compelled me to answer.
Perhaps by aiding her, I could find redemption for myself.
Amid my brother’s disappearance, I longed for a savior.
Little did I expect to find one in a cemetery.
Jiro Saito, my late sister’s ex-boyfriend and my childhood crush, emerged as that unexpected hero.
He’s a complex blend of danger, scars, and haunting memories.
Strangely, I still long for him, despite knowing he views me only as a way to soothe his guilt.
Perhaps he can help my brother.
And maybe, just maybe, I can rescue Jiro too.
A few years ago, when his sister went missing, Haggard Crow turned into something he never wanted to be. A killer.
Even after his sister is rescued a year after she was kidnapped and sold, Haggard ‘Thief’ Crow doesn’t have any plans on changing. He sort of likes the zero fucks given guy that he is now.
Bonus points, he saves women and children from extreme situations, along with his club and real life brothers by his side.
After a horrible marriage, Haggard has zero plans of ever finding a woman again. One-night stands not counting, he adores his life as a single man. There are no expectations. No ‘where are yous’ and ‘are you coming homes.’
The life he chooses to live is a simple one. Until he makes a huge mistake, and he steps over that line between ‘daughter’s best friend’ and ‘a woman he desperately wants.’
Before long, he can’t stop thinking about her. Can’t stop wanting her. Can’t stop feeling things for her that a man twenty years her senior should never feel for a girl he watched grow up.
After one lapse in judgment, he decides she needs to go. But the funny thing is, he never expected Sophia Madden to fight back. And dirty at that.
She’s a spoiled heiress. He’s a hardened police detective. Their marriage is fake … but it doesn’t have to stay that way, does it?
Lucinda Astor has always been a bit of a spoiled brat. At least that’s the way it appears from the outside looking in. She’s the baby of the family, the only girl, and has always had her dad wrapped around her finger.
She’s had a hard couple of years. During that time, she’s become obsessed with someone who helped her. He saved her. He can continue to save her … if only she can figure out how to get him all to herself.
He’s been married, divorced, and is now focused on work and only work. Savage Chenault is a detective and nothing else. He wants the second half of his life to be nothing but cruising down easy street. Then his world becomes a bit more complicated when he meets a twenty-six-year-old princess.
Lucinda Astor is sexy as sin. She’s also thirty years his junior. She’s everything he shouldn’t want. She’s spoiled. She’s young. She’s going to want a family. But more importantly, she’s going to have expectations.
The marriage may begin fake, but can it stay that way?

Maggie Emerson has known Colin Rhett since meeting him in her friend’s swimming pool her freshman year of college. Everyone knows the playboy with the movie star looks. They also know he goes through women with barely a second thought. So what does she do when he appeals to the literature teacher in her? She gives him a book, of course. What about when he doesn’t stop at one? Maybe the Colin everyone thinks they know is really much deeper than anybody gives him credit for.

Colin is a successful attorney with a different woman every week, but what he really wants is the one woman he can’t have. All he has wanted since that fateful day in the swimming pool six years ago is to be her hero, but there was always a reason holding him back. Will this finally be his chance to prove to her that he can be the man she needs? If he has to read every damn book in the bookstore, he’s going to fight this time for that right.
The first time I saw her was across the room at a bar. I had no idea at the time that she was only sixteen. All I knew was that she was beautiful, she was sending me do-me vibes from across the room, and I was fresh off a deployment where there’d been nobody but men for nine of the longest months of my life.
The second time that I saw her was at a court hearing that would decide how long I’d be sent to prison for. She was a cute little curly-haired blonde with wide, expressive eyes, a banging body, and the reason that I’d gone to prison in the first place.
The third time I saw her was through a glass divider of the prison visitation room as she waited for her stepfather, my lawyer, to tell me how sorry he was that he lost my case. Especially when I’d been the one to kill the man that was about to kill his daughter.
The last time, the time that I decided enough was enough, was when I saw her at my bar eight weeks after I’d been set free.
Unlucky for her, I’d stopped being a good guy about two seconds after those bars closed behind me twelve years ago. Now all that was left was a shell of a man that didn’t see the good in anything. Anything except for her.
