BURN by Maya Banks
Ash, Jace, and Gabe: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They’re accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all. For Ash, it’s the woman who changes everything he’s ever known about dominance and desire…
When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side—extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Even the women he’s shared with his best friend, Jace.
But Jace is involved with a woman he has no intention of sharing. And now even Gabe has settled into a relationship with a woman who gives him everything he needs, leaving Ash feeling restless and unfulfilled.
Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

THE BILLIONAIRE’S OBSESSION by J.S. Scott
Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she’s never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity?
Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants…until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he’s never experienced and definitely doesn’t like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul.
CAPTURED HEARTS by Sandra Deighan (IRDA Award Winner)
Deana Harrington is just an everyday virgin with a job and a life until she is spotted by a very extraordinary fellow.
Fryar—an incarnation of the Norse pagan fertility god Freyr—has a penchant for women of all types but Deana is different; a “Hater,” she literally can‘t tolerate Fryar’s attentions and will lose her mind if he presses her too far. Nevertheless, Fryar kidnaps his reluctant prey and spirits her away on a cruise; as long as she remains his companion and doesn’t try to escape he promises to release her at the end of the journey.
Oddly enough, this unlikely duo has much to learn from one another as their relationship evolves; Fryar examines both his limitations and the depth of his desires, while Deana probes the boundaries of her courage and ability to trust. And Fryar is not without humor; for an immortal, supernatural, sexual predator he has a fascinating way of meting out justice.
Readers will be intrigued by Fryar’s mesmerizing sexual powers, as well as surprised by his sense of compassion, and though there are a few rough moments (including another kidnapping), readers will be rewarded by the ultimately uplifting turn of events. Deighan’s unusual tale is not for the sexually squeamish, though her uniquely gifted main character may very well work his magic even upon those who resist!
BEAUTY FROM PAIN by Georgia Cates
Jack Henry McLachlan is a rich man, the owner of multiple vineyards stretching across Australia, and he is tired of women who only want him for his money. So he has an arrangement – he selects a woman he’s attracted to, and offers her a no-strings attached relationship for three months, without the use of their real names.
His latest choice is Laurelyn Prescott, an American woman visiting a friend in Australia, attempting to get over the fact that Blake Philips, the boyfriend she thought she’d loved, who is also the record producer who owns half her songs, turned out to be married with children. Since Laurelyn herself was the product of an affair with a married man, who never acknowledged his daughter, this is a touchy issue for her. So she’s ready for a sexy, pampered three-month romp with Jack that will help her push Blake far, far out of her mind and heart.
It isn’t long, though, before they each realize that the other does things for them no one else can, and their feelings start growing past the limits they’ve set. But can they admit that to each other before the time is up? And can they deal with their past histories, their stalker exes, and family crises in a way that brings them closer together?
SURRENDER by Melody Anne
Raffaello Palazzo is a wealthy businessman scarred by bitterness after his ex-wife cheated on him and tried to take him for everything he was worth.
He has decided to keep his sex life impersonal and businesslike, hiring a series of mistresses for healthy sums of money until he tires of them and leaves them with a generous severance package and a nondisclosure contract.
Arianna Harlow is a young woman in desperate need of a job – her mother was badly injured in a car accident coming to pick her up from a party where she’d gotten drunk, and she has dropped out of college to care for her. She sees Palazzo’s ad in the paper, and applies for the job, not knowing what she’s getting into. When she finds out, however, she refuses – but Rafe is intrigued and will not take no for an answer. The erotic tension between them is intense, but she isn’t willing to be a servant, a toy, or a piece of property. Can she hold out against his passionate advances? Can he keep his feelings clear, cold and professional despite a treacherous heart which can’t give up entirely on love?
