I own my own dance studio, have a thriving competitive ballroom dance career, and am married to a successful financier. Life should be good, but I also have a stalker, and I’m divorcing my cold, ruthless husband. The day I walk out of my Bel Air mansion, leaving only divorce papers behind, my stalker ups his game.
With no resources, thanks to an iron-clad prenup, I have no one to turn to but an aloof and irreverent friend of a friend. Cannon dresses like he shops in a dirty laundry pile. He acts like he doesn’t have time for my frivolous career. And he looks at me like he can’t believe someone hasn’t knocked me off my high horse already.
But it’s not long before I realize Cannon isn’t all he seems. Just like he sees right through my polish to the insecure, naive girl inside, I see him. He’s intense, he’s restrained, and he has something to hide. Those secrets might not just end what’s growing between us…they might get us killed.
Devastated is the first book in the Devastated and Devoted duet. Cannon and Penni’s story continues in Devoted.
He was older. Impossibly gorgeous. And had no clue I existed.
Luca Fritz was the worst sort of playboy, constantly falling in and out of love with every woman he met. I used to spend hours of my life staring at the huge Fritz mansion from the window of the staff house dreaming of him. By eighteen I’d all but given up my fantasy, set to go off to The Conservatory in London to follow my dreams when fate stepped in with other ideas.
That summer I was young. Innocent. And forbidden to him.
I knew when we succumbed to the explosive passion between us that he would inevitably ruin me.
I wasn’t wrong.
Four years later, fate decides to step in again. I’m offered my dream job as a first chair cellist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Only I know what comes with it.
On opening night, he comes barreling back into my life. Desperate for a shot at his second chance. A second chance I have no intention of giving. Now a brilliant neurosurgeon he thinks he knows exactly the right way to crawl back not only into my bed but into my heart.
I don’t care how persistent, unexpected, or clever he is. I am not that love-sick teenage girl anymore. It’ll take a hell of a lot more than panty-melting smiles and heart-stopping encounters to win me back over.
This cocky playboy is about to learn that all’s fair in love and war. And this is the latter.
DOCTOR PLAYBOY is a 120k word STEAMY and EMOTIONAL second chance, age-gap romance. It is a standalone in the bestselling Boston’s Billionaire Bachelors series featuring Boston’s hottest billionaire doctors and the women they fall head over heels for!
“It was as if my life had been marked by her absence…” Sensual, dangerous, provocative — step into a daring new world of dark magic, primal attraction, and breathtaking romance.
Julian Rousseaux has a problem. He’s single, and for the world’s wealthiest vampires, the social season is about to begin. Julian would rather stake himself than participate in the marriage market. But as the eldest, eligible Rousseaux he’s expected to find a wife before the season ends—whether he likes it or not.
When cellist Thea literally stumbles into his life at a gala, he knows she’s the last person he could ever fall in love with. She’s too innocent, too kind, and way too human. But now that she knows about his world, she’s also a walking target. She needs protection. He needs a fake girlfriend to discourage overzealous vampire matchmaking.
So, Julian makes Thea an irresistible offer: pretend to be his lover and he’ll change her life. For one year, they’ll attend the season’s social events together in exchange for his protection and a way out of her mother’s crippling medical debt.
She can’t say no. But the vampire world is impossibly decadent and darker than Thea ever imagined, and Julian’s filthy rich vampire family wants her out of the way. But with each moment they share, new dangers emerge: a desire as forbidden as their stolen touches, an awakening of a long-dead heart, and secrets that could tear them both apart.
Have you ever gotten married without telling anyone? I did. Not saying anything was the easy part. I had moved to a big city, had no friends, and I wasn’t speaking to my family.
I tried the whole “fake it until you make it” thing. I was the fake part and my husband Archer was only concerned with making it. When I got a call about a family emergency, I walked out on my hot but overly ambitious husband and my superficial life and ran back home to the family ranch. And I stayed, ignoring my husband’s attempts to reach me—and I still didn’t tell anyone I was married.
Then a year and a half later, I find Archer standing in on my property, looking like a titanium rod in a pile of rusty nails. He came to end things between us but ends up staying to learn who he really married—the shy corporate woman with a perfect blowout or the sarcastic country girl with mud on her boots.
The longer he’s around, the more I see that I wasn’t the only one who was disingenuous. The suit is gone and my city slicker spouse is fixing fence, diving into muddy stock ponds to save calves, and calling in favors to get the cattle enough hay for the winter.
Yet none of that changes that my family needs me and I’m not abandoning them again. It doesn’t change that the career he worked so hard to build is over a thousand miles away in Texas. Or that the life I want is exactly what he’s run from. The only thing we’re doing is making it harder to sign the divorce papers.
I had two plans after graduation:
Get the hell out of this shit town and find my missing father.
Until then, comfortably invisible is how I preferred to spend my time.
That was, until I turned the corner, smacking into the chest of a jade-eyed stranger.
He makes me question my sanity.
The secrets he’s keeping make me question my safety.
The way he looks at me makes me question everything.
One thing is for sure, Dominic Pope will change my life.
Good or bad…
I’m just not sure which yet.
Revenge is a promise you make to yourself;
A pact to repay someone who has wronged you.
My sole focus for the past year has been to infiltrate and extinguish.
Get close, gain the Devil’s trust, then knock him off his shiny pedestal.
I didn’t plan on her, though.
My Night Sky.
The girl with a sharp tongue, flickering stars in her eyes, and cinnamon-brown hair.
I didn’t prepare for my need for her outweighing my plan.
Straying from the blueprints of my revenge is getting easier and easier,
but is it possible to keep her safe and call her mine?
Because one thing is for sure:
I’m not letting her go.
We all have a dream.
But I think I preferred holding mine at arm’s length…
It’s not that I don’t want to go to New York.
It’s that it’s all I’ve ever wanted.
So when a dream internship lands in my lap, the last thing I should be doing is hesitating.
Elliot thinks I should take it — he’s always believed in me.
Smirking, smouldering Elliot Montgomery.
It was Elliot’s arms I’d innocently fallen asleep between on lonely nights.
And those same arms that promised all kinds of unspeakable things when I found myself writhing between them…
But even as he threw me out of my comfort zone, Elliot promised me something immeasurable.
So now I’m here, living my fashion design dreams in the trustiest outfit I own — indecision. But the longer I stay in New York, the further I feel myself drift from everything I thought I wanted.
And somehow, absence is making the heat grow stronger…
If Elliot Montgomery is no Prince Charming, why does he feel like happily ever after?
The Partners are back with a vengeance…
Everyone thinks I died three years ago.
I sacrificed my life for my friends.
To redeem myself for all my wrong doings.
I don’t exist. Not in the real sense of the word.
I’m just a man fulfilling my destiny that was laid out for me from the day I was born.
A man put in position to take over the largest criminal organization.
I’m just a pawn in a game with nothing to lose.
Until my past hits me like a freight train. The only woman I ever fell for reappears in my life.
But she isn’t just anyone. Her family is one of the most powerful mafia families in Italy.
And it’s the family I’m after for trying to take down The Partners.
We never should have been together. We never should have met.
Our story could start a war. Especially when she drops a bomb I never saw coming.
And now the stakes are so high even my own life is forfeit.
I may not exist.
But that won’t stop me from taking what’s mine.
And risking everything for a family I didn’t know I had.

When Aiden King asked me out years ago, I couldn’t believe it. Six months later, I went from mousy librarian to wife of the most wanted bachelor in town. Heck, in the state, probably the country. I moved from a trailer house to a mansion by the river.
Turns out, I shouldn’t have believed it. After years of being alone while Aiden put in long hours at the office, I learned his secret. He needed to marry for a year to fulfill his trust requirements, and the nerdy girl from the wrong side of the tracks was an easy target.
I never thought I’d be the girl asking a handsome millionaire for a divorce. Now, I just want to limp my pride back to my family and find myself again. I want to forget the question that’s eating at me. If he only needed to be married for a year, why has it been five years since we said I do?
Work has become my identity. I went into the family business and the responsibility is staggering. One mess up and people can die. I know that all too well and I’ve dedicated myself to doing better. I’m exceptional at my job. Meticulous. Dedicated.
But for a guy who’s such a perfectionist, I really messed up my marriage. It took Kate walking out to get me to wake up and realize what an empty existence I’ve built.
So what does a workaholic do when he realizes his work, and especially the money, means nothing to him? That there’s only one obsession he’s ever had, and she’s staying with her rowdy, overprotective family? Kate’s always been the only one for me. It’s time for this King to loosen his tie and win back his queen.
He unleashed the darkness in her…but it might cost them both.
Billionaire Braden Black has one hard limit in the bedroom. He doesn’t talk about it, and he doesn’t engage in it.

Though he loves her desperately, he’s starting to worry their relationship can’t continue.
Skye Manning has fallen down the rabbit hole and become captive to her needs. When Braden asks her why she desires something so dark, and she finds she can’t respond, she knows she’ll have to come up with those answers on her own. She’s willing, but she wants something in return—Braden’s complete honesty about his past.
Because Skye is convinced her needs, his limits…everything is tied to this one secret.

Our time together would soon come to an end. If only the clock could be turned back.
I’d been spied on during the negotiations, and when Dad said we were changing our offer to a joint deal with the Wentworths I couldn’t believe it. They were likely the ones behind the surveillance.

When busy days turned into heated nights, I had to decide if she’d been sent to distract me with her curves and that smile. Were we working toward the same goal, or were my hormones coloring my judgment?
Events soon forced a choice. But, how could I choose between her and my family?

I knew who I was before Olivier Durand came along. Despite growing up among the privileged elite, I never cared about corporate ladders or dream weddings. I proudly wear the label of social justice warrior. Until a car accident changes everything overnight. A video goes viral: Chicago’s Hottest Bachelor, billionaire Olivier Durand pulling me from my burning car. When he sets his sights on me, the whole world is watching. He can chase after me all he wants, but my answer will be the same: I loathe the ultra-wealthy. Even when they’re handsome, persuasive and…I have to admit, charming. It’s a hell no from me, though. Until suddenly, I’m not sure I’m the woman I thought I was.
Now I know how the players on the NHL team I own must feel. Relentlessly hounded. Once the video of me pulling a woman from her burning car goes viral, privacy becomes a thing of the past. For whatever reason, Twitter has collectively decided this woman and I should become a romantic thing. A hashtag combining my name with hers is trending daily. Absolute nonsense. But then I meet her, and realize Twitter got it right. Daphne Barrington is beautiful, funny, brilliant and sweet. Now I just have to convince her to date me. Easier said than done. She’s maddeningly stubborn, and my deep desire to be with her soon has me writing massive checks. Not for jewelry or cars, but to charities. Winning Daphne’s heart is going to cost me, and I’m not sure even I have enough money to do it.
When I signed up for the nanny agency, I didn’t expect a remote mansion on a windswept isle. Or a brooding billionaire who resents his new role.
His brother’s death means he’s now in charge of a moody seven year old girl. She’s lashing out at the world, but I can handle her. I have to. I need the money to finish my college degree.
As long as I can avoid the boss who alternately mocks me and coaxes me to reveal my darkest secrets.
“One night. No strings attached. We do the kinkiest things we can think of and we never talk about them again.”
What do you say when your half-naked best friend approaches you with the craziest suggestion you’ve ever heard in your life? You certainly don’t entertain the idea. And you certainly don’t come up with a list of dos and don’ts for the night that is never going to happen.
My best friend, Harry Parker Huntington, wants us to make a one-night pact. He’s a playboy, hellbent on never settling down and I’m a tomboy ready to change my image. All of our lives, he’s been able to convince me to join in on disastrous schemes and plans that always seem to blow up in my face. But he says this one is foolproof.
We’ll be at his parents’ house for Christmas and as Harry says, “what happens at my parents’ house stays at my parents’ house.” I’m not sure it’s the best idea he’s ever had, but he always did have a way of making me say yes, to just about everything.
Broke, jobless, and stranded in Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day, I am forced to call my parents for a bailout. Again. A pampered princess and wannabe environmentalist, I know I’m a cliché and would do anything to change it. So when I meet Xander, a struggling photojournalist with absolutely nothing in common with my domineering, millionaire parents, I know just where to go next:
A wedding chapel.
But when I wake up the next day, my matrimonial rebellion comes with an unpleasant surprise. My husband is no penniless globetrotter—Xander King is the son of a billionaire oil tycoon, and my parents couldn’t approve of the match more. Now the only thing that could shock them would be a quickie divorce…except my new husband has a proposition for me.
I take one look at Savvy and know I could spend the rest of my life with her. The feeling is mutual…until she figures out who I am. I didn’t mean to hide my identity, and I thought a desire to get out from under the weight of familial baggage was something we had in common. But with Savvy just moments from proposing divorce, I offer her the one thing I’d been ready to walk away from:
A trust fund worth millions.
All Savvy has to do is stay married to me for a year and then she’ll get half—except I have no intention of letting her go after 365 days. I’ve spent a decade running from my father’s disapproval and my brothers’ successes. Now I’m willing to spend a lifetime convincing the woman I love to stay put by my side.
She gave him control in the bedroom. But is she losing control of her identity?
Dating Boston’s billionaire bachelor has opened up a new world for Skye Manning. Opportunities are suddenly everywhere, her new career is flourishing, and she experiences luxury she’s only seen in the pages of magazines. So why does she feel like she’s losing herself?
Braden Black never meant to fall for Skye, and he still tries to resist a relationship he knows he’s not wired for. But not only has Skye awoken something inside him—he’s stirring something dark and forbidden inside his Cinderella. Something even he can’t control…
