He wasn’t looking for romance. But love had other plans…

Slade only cares about two things…his job and his team. He’s never been interested in settling down or starting a family. Those are attachments he doesn’t need. But when he goes to check on the boy left behind by the death of his business partner’s ex-wife, Slade meets Bethany Simmons. This computer programmer is smart as a whip and beautiful as well. And Slade can’t help but take notice.

When Bethany contacted Slade Security to let them know of her sister’s death, she never thought it would be Slade who would show up. With his tanned skin, salt-and-pepper hair, and ripped body, one look at Slade makes her go weak in the knees. But despite her attraction, Bethany’s not going to let anyone take her nephew away from her. Not even a silver fox like Slade.

Bethany’s determined to find a way to adopt her nephew. But as the simmering attraction between her and Slade grows, a dark secret is revealed. And it just might change both their lives forever.

Keira Mantz just scored the job of a lifetime. She’s been working for a high-end security company for years, and finally, she has a mission all her own: to protect Erin, the Sheikh of Jawhara’s wife. But what she thought would be a solo operation suddenly becomes a two-person job. And her partner is none other than Brock Wells, the man who recruited her. The last thing Keira wants is Brock stealing her thunder. But she’ll do whatever it takes to succeed.

Brock has been avoiding Kiera since the night he found her fighting some very dangerous men in a bar parking lot. The Slade Security “no fraternization” rule is serious business, and with her mile-long legs, fierce determination, and unwavering focus, Keira is a temptation he can’t afford. But with the threat to the sheikha closer than they realized, Brock and Kiera have to go deep undercover, posing as a couple. And suddenly that temptation becomes impossible to ignore…

The day Dakota Callahan left their small town, Sarah was glad. He was the man she had secretly loved for years. He saved her from the horrible man who tried to kidnap her as a teenager. But the last time she saw him, Dakota had been facing so much grief, loss, and pain that he had overstepped his boundaries with her. It had shaken Sarah to her core.

Now two years later, Dakota was back. To her, this man was larger than life and twice as dangerous. Sarah was worried that she would fall for him a second time. This time, she feared that the heartache would be more than she could bear.

Dakota couldn’t believe he was back in their small town. Worse, that he found himself on the mountain, hurt and in pain. As a former FBI agent, he was used to tracking criminals and finding missing persons. Being weak and vulnerable was something he hated. So, when the beautiful Sarah MacDonald finds him limping and in pain, trying to walk down the mountain, he chafes at having to depend on her for help. Sarah insisted Dakota come to stay with her grandfather Angus MacDonald and her in their small cabin until he was fully healed.

When an angry man — a neighbor on the mountain — tries to force Sarah to marry him, Dakota steps in and offers the unthinkable… a marriage of convenience. Trouble comes their way and Dakota has to use all his skills to keep Sarah close to protect her, while still protecting his heart.

From the moment he meets her, Bryce finds himself annoyed by her constantly upbeat attitude.

They were supposed to remain strictly professional. But he can’t get enough of her fire…

Now that Shane Pickett’s horse trainer has retired, there are plenty of ranch hands knocking at his door to fill the available position. But one woman stands out above the rest, and it’s not just because she knows her way around a horse. She’s a gorgeous spitfire and Shane would be a fool to let her slip through his fingers just because of his damn pride.
