My best friend’s little sister.
That’s all I’m supposed to see when I look at Olivia.
I may be wealthy, but I’m not good enough for her. Her brother and I have been best friends for years, and he doesn’t want me so much as glancing in her direction. I can’t blame him — not when I’ve screwed every girl in a fifty-mile radius.
But she’s another matter. I’ve caught the little glances she’s been sending my way for years, but now?
This kid sister is all grown up… and she’s in the bedroom next to mine. We’re both on the Morgan estate for our own reasons; she’s got ambitions, I’ve got secrets in my past.
She’s my full-blown obsession. I wonder how she’d moan if I took her roughly, how her innocent passion would make me feel alive. I think about how she’d sound when she breathlessly whispered my name.
There’s a past between us. I may not care about my past or hers…
But with so much history, can we make it work?
He’s handsome, rich, and renowned for his raw, erotic paintings that command millions of dollars and praise from critics around the world. He has everything he could possibly want . . . but it wasn’t always that way.
Some old wounds heal with time. Some don’t. Some demand payback–no matter the price. And when beautiful, innocent Melanie Laurent steps into his sights, nothing will stop Jared from having the revenge he’s craved for years.
The only problem is, what if the cost of his vengeance turns out to be more than he can bear to lose?
A classic fairy tale gets a sexy, edgy twist.
Jackson “The Beast” Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick’s New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fund-raiser, Bianca can’t refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother’s medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum—money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract—and a stunning ring.
The heir to a family bourbon dynasty, Jackson knows the rumors swirling around him. The truth is even darker. Still, he needs a wife to secure his inheritance, and free-spirited, sassy Bianca would play the part beautifully. Soon, though, their simple business deal evolves into an emotional intimacy he’s built walls to avoid.
As the passion heats up between them, Bianca and Jackson struggle to define which feelings are real and which are for show. Is falling for your fake fiancé the best happy ending…or a recipe for disaster?
