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?

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.
Eternal love is worth waiting for.
Since Lacey Robinson trekked off to college four years ago, Kade Maxwell has worried non-stop that her blackouts and panic attacks would destroy her independence. But with her graduation on the horizon, he begins to relax, knowing she’ll soon be back in his arms. He’s excited to do the one thing he’s been longing to do—propose. But when he surprises her the day before graduation, he may be walking away instead.
Lacey was practically born with a baseball in one hand and a mitt on the other. The only time she hasn’t played was after the death of her mom and sister. The uphill climb to get back to pitching was painful, and if it weren’t for Kade, she might not have made it.
