Forced to make a bargain…
One drunken night in Cuba lands Captain Valeryn Barone in a life or death situation. To escape the gallows, Valeryn must agree to a bargain only a fool would make: Escort the tempting and tenacious niece of his captor across the Caribbean or lose his ship, his crew and his life! The caveat? The beautiful Spanish woman must remain untouched for the entire voyage.
Determined to get what she wants…
Catalina Montoya will stop at nothing to get what she wants—even when trouble is certain. Sent to live with her uncle after a scandalous affair, Catalina intends to concentrate on her dream to become a renowned naturalist. She never expected her uncle would send her with a notorious pirate to further her studies. Worse, she never expected to want the devilishly handsome pirate more than anything else.
It’s a battle of wills…
Now Catalina only has 8 weeks to seduce Valeryn and collect her specimens before he returns her to her uncle. And Valeryn has 8 weeks to secure his redemption. Except neither would be that lucky. Not when ruthless enemies threaten to destroy them at every turn. Can Valeryn save those that foolishly depend on him? Can he resist Catalina’s heart? Does a dead man walking even have a chance?
For Dr. Calista Montgomery, losing her soldier husband was like diving into a cold dark sea, and the events at his funeral swept her farther from
shore. Crushed by the lies, Cali crawls into a bottle and flees all she knows. Inebriated and drifting aimlessly, she winds up in Esterloch, New York, where she’s arrested and hits bottom. Offered a chance to expunge her record, she accepts the conditions…but the real challenge is keeping herself safe from the arrogant, gorgeous and commanding sheriff.
FOR THE LAST TIME
Sheriff Jack Benfield hates drunks. They’re selfish, manipulative, and they break hearts, and his is no exception. He saw the damage inflicted upon his family, so he has no patience for any of them, not even the beautiful Dr. Montgomery. His body, however, has different ideas, and soon two desperate souls will discover that some breaks make us stronger—and sometimes we must drown before we learn how to breathe.
Sloan Ricker will bow before no man—not ever again. That it’s a redheaded, female captain who buys him off the auction block makes no difference; he’ll do whatever he must to steal away. But when she offers him his freedom in exchange for decoding an old map, it’s an opportunity to begin again. No matter how intensely he despises his luscious new keeper.
Navigating the high seas means always being on your guard—especially when one takes a temptingly handsome captive on board. Captain Joelle Quint believes Ricker when he claims to be a cartographer and, perhaps foolishly, hopes he’ll be the key to unlocking her dark family secrets. She’s spent years on that infernal map.
To get the answers, independence and love that they both long for, Joelle and Ricker must relinquish control to each other…or die trying. Amid a battle with the Royal Navy and a first mate’s seething jealousy, Joelle also fights her growing lust. For Ricker, what begins as a chance at freedom becomes a struggle to make the beautiful, intriguing Captain Joelle Quint his mistress in more ways than one.
Reilly Shay has built a reputation as a highly successful cat burglar. Her current contract—to steal a one-of-a-kind
diamond bracelet—puts her one step closer to freedom from her employer. But she suspects her days are numbered. She’s a target for cops and crooks, and no one has her back since her ex-partner, and ex-lover, Grant Aubrey turned on her.
Grant gladly takes the job to capture Reilly at her latest heist. He loved her and she betrayed him. Case closed. But as he waits in the shadows of a Greek villa and watches her crack the safe, old desires emerge. And, suddenly, taking her in isn’t nearly as enticing as just taking her.
Will one night of dangerous passion be the death of them both?
