Every small town has its secrets…

Chief of police Tristan Church likes Marsville just the way it is. He has his job and his police dog, Fuzz, for company. He could have Sheriff Skylar Morgan, too, but she’s determined to keep him at arm’s length, even if the one night they shared was unforgettable.

When a kooky Marsville matriarch decides to reopen the town’s old UFO museum, everyone laughs—except Tristan. Inviting cranks and conspiracy theorists to Marsville is bound to be trouble. But he’s on the museum planning committee with Skylar, and he won’t say no to spending time with her…even if he thinks this is a bad idea.

But when their sleepy little town is suddenly full of dangers, Tristan and Fuzz are the only ones who can protect Skylar. And as the threat against her grows, so does the intimacy between Skylar and Tristan. With their lives on the line, can they trust their hearts not to break?

Danger and desire go hand in hand…

When her little sister Robyn is kidnapped, Rhianne Carlson promises herself she’ll do anything to bring her home safely. Even if it means reluctantly teaming up with private security agent and former Navy SEAL Eric Cruz.

Despite his smoldering good looks and undeniable talents, Rhianne has never trusted this sinfully sexy agent. And she definitely doesn’t like his plan to pretend to be a decadent couple, in order to lure out the organized crime syndicate who’s taken Robyn. Eric’s taking his role way too seriously. All that touching and kissing. It’s enough to drive a girl mad…with lust.

Eric has always admired Rhianne. And now that they’re working together, he finds his admiration turning into something more. They’re getting way too good at pretending to be a couple. Their kisses seem all too real. But the danger they’re in is real too. And even though he knows Rhianne can handle herself, he can’t help feeling protective of her.

Can they fight for their lives, while also fighting off their mutual attraction? And if they manage to survive, does their growing love have a chance?

A one-night stand leaves this Navy SEAL with a surprise…

It was just supposed to be one night of no-strings-attached fun, but now Sofia Popov has become the center of former Navy SEAL Ian Campbell’s life. Sofia turns out to be the teacher of Ian’s teen son, Gavin—the same teacher who meets him in the hospital when Gavin suffers a seizure at school.

And he’s not the only teen who’s landed in the hospital. Ian is already formulating a plan to make those responsible pay when Sofia drops a bombshell: she’s pregnant.

Sofia’s in way over her head—not only with Ian but also with a dangerous cartel that wants her silenced. While the police don’t take her concerns seriously, Ian’s private investigation firm does. And that’s a good thing because this cartel wants to shut her up. Permanently.

She doesn’t think twice when Ian offers her a safe place to stay. Now it’s up to Ian’s private investigation firm to get to the bottom of things to protect the teens of San Diego—and the woman who’s winning Ian’s heart.
