A new dark, taboo series from Celia Aaron.
What do you get when you cross a klutz with a GQ model lookalike?
Sounds like a bad joke, right? Only it’s my reality. And reality comes in the form of arm veins, dimples, and THE sexiest voice I’ve ever heard.
But there’s a slight issue. You see, I have a confession: I’m a klutz.
I’m used to it now and everything’s going fine— if you don’t count the monthly trips to ER and the twenty-three jobs in the last four years—that is until I’m sent to New York.
The city of dreams… a klutz’s worst nightmare.
Three weeks. Twenty-one days.
I can control it right?
Let the fun begin.
I’ve always treated life like a balancing act, standing on a thin line between order and chaos.
One wrong move and I’ll fall, losing all sense of control.
Then she happens.
One night of unadulterated sex blurs the line and sends me running toward a release, but I know I can’t stop there.
After a lifetime of chasing highs, she’s my newest addiction.
And I need a hit, no matter the cost.
“You will learn to love the pain. I’ll make you.”
Stolen. Kidnapped. Taken.
He snatched me off the street, ending my dream of becoming a dancer.
Now, I’m locked away in a mansion with girls who’ve met the same fate.
My captor is always rough, rarely kind.
He punishes me for every little mistake.
He’s training me. Preparing me. Getting me ready.
Slowly, my body is starting to break. Obey. Bend to his will.
Time’s ticking. My body is learning to submit.
I’ve almost stopped fighting. Almost given in.
Still, the promise of something darker hangs in the air.
The real monster is lurking.
And soon, he will come for me.
Pierce Lane is dark, dangerous, and desirable – all with a capital D.
He’s an asshole – the devil in the dark suit – and that’s exactly how he prefers it. Perceptive and smart, Pierce has always prided himself on being one step ahead of the game. Except for that one time, six years ago.
One night. One mistake. One priceless painting lost.
It should be simple – find the thief, recover the painting, get revenge. But, it’s not. Why? Because nothing with a woman is ever simple.
And it isn’t just any gorgeous, infuriating, strong, stubborn woman who’s butting in and refusing to let him fix his mistake.
No, this one also happens to be his best friend’s twin sister.
The painting was his one mistake. And if he isn’t careful, his desire is about to have him make an even bigger one.
Morgana ‘Ana’ Wells isn’t looking for love or passion because those things aren’t possible for her. What she is looking for is an art thief because it’s her job. She never expected that her brother would know about her latest White Collar case, let alone know the man responsible. And Pierce is exactly the kind of man they warn you about – the serial heartbreaker. But soon Ana begins to see all of the broken pieces he’s tried to hide, because hiding scars is her skill, too. It’s not that she doesn’t want his help finding the thief – it’s that she shouldn’t want him. Can she recover the priceless artwork before the most protected piece of her heart is lost, too?
The Painter’s Passion is a standalone novel and the third book in the Gentlemen’s Guild series.
They might make a great team … if they don’t kill each other first.
Cree Manning loves everything about being an attorney … except her colleague, Aaron. He may be an actual prince, but he’s also used to coasting through life on his good looks and status. Aaron’s hot enough to melt ice, but his arrogance and more than questionable work ethic drive her up a wall.
His Royal Highness, Aaron Sarda, is third in line to the throne…which means his role in the Kingdom of Medina is mostly ornamental. He hates feeling useless, and working with Cree has taught him that he hates being looked down on even more. Sure, she’s gorgeous, but she’s also rigid, overbearing, and utterly immune to his charm.
The tension between them only gets stronger when Cree and Aaron are partnered on an important case. There’s a big promotion riding on the outcome, so Cree has to keep it together and stay professional. But what is she supposed to do when the temptation to smack Aaron becomes the urgent need to kiss him?

Fresh out of prison after serving a three-year sentence, Johnathan Marcello wants to get back to normal business as a mafia capo.

A chance encounter with a blue-eyed woman might just change his whole world.
Siena Calabrese’s life revolves around cooking numbers, and scrubbing books clean. After all, a girl is only useful to men in the mafia, if she isn’t totally useless. As long as she does what they want, then she can maintain the illusion of freedom. But illusions are only delusions in the grand scheme of her life, and reality is far more dangerous.
A man with secrets might just be the one thing she didn’t know she needed.
In this life, family is everything. Or, that’s how it should be.
Mix it all together, and it makes for a volatile city.
A war is coming.

There were only three things I cared about: women, money and booze. That is, until saw Selena Jacobson, a goddess in the flesh if I’ve ever seen one.
I wanted her from the very first second that I laid my eyes on her. Something carnal inside me flipped a switch, and I knew she would be mine. When life threw us both a big curveball, I made her mine, in every way possible.
Every dark desire inside me came to life, and I’ll be damned if anyone takes her away from me.
Christian Steele was nothing but an arrogant prick; one that I tried to stay away from.
Tried and failed.
Dammit to hell, I liked a lot of things about Christian that I would never admit.
When we lost my parents, one to death and another to abandonment, I became the bread-winner, and, for a time, I just want to feel irresponsible. Christian makes me feel in ways I never thought possible and not just between the sheets.
