After Reenie bumps into her friend’s very sexy, very naked brother, she decides to keep her distance, but he shows up at her door the next morning asking she doesn’t let first impressions ruin what could be a whole lot of fun.
Matt quickly realizes none of his usual lines will work on Reenie, which only adds to his desire to get her to lower her defenses around him.


Buck Naked
When a cowboy stops to help Amy change a flat, she’s convinced her run of luck isn’t going to change any time soon. Buck is far too confident and cocky for her. Buck made his mark on the rodeo circuit, but the lifestyle left its on marks on him. He knows he should tell Amy about his past before she hears it elsewhere, but every time he opens his mouth, all he can do is kiss her…

Stripped Naked
Jinx thought moving from New York to Rowan Country would mean an end to reporting on murders and dealing with grumpy police who see her as a nuisance. After only a few weeks on the job, someone finds a dead body in a ditch, and Sheriff Dillon Cross is butting heads with the sexy local reporter. They get on like two angry hornets trapped in an upturned glass, but soon it’s more than heated barbs they’re exchanging.

Bare Naked
Georgie invests everything she owns in a dilapidated B&B in Saddle Wells, Texas, so when a rough-around-the-edges cowboy offers his handyman services, she accepts his help in exchange for room and board.
Cade’s a down-on-his-luck cowboy with a reputation so bad no one will hire him. Luckily for Cade, newcomer Georgie doesn’t know anything about the man he used to be. But not everyone is ready to give Cade a second chance, and their newfound happiness could disappear like smoke.

Naked Desire
All Cynthia has left after her divorce is her grandfather’s secret barbecue-spice-rub recipe. She’s determined to start over in Saddle Wells, but she’s totally unprepared for her reaction to the carpenter her new friends recommend.
Jesse is more than happy to renovate Cyn’s storefront, but what he’d really love to do is tackle that self-doubt he sees lurking in her eyes, but first he has to convince her to give them a chance despite their age difference.

Naked Flame
On a night out, former cop Charity notices the brooding bar owner needs help, so she steps in and ends up right in his arms.
After two tours in Afghanistan, Liam now runs his dad’s bar. Having Charity around is a distraction, but he can’t seem to deny whatever there is between them.
When a criminal comes looking for revenge, Charity knows it will be better for everyone if she leaves town, but leaving Liam is more difficult than she thought.

Naked Heat
Andrew “Mac” McDaniel is on a mission to find the drunk driver who killed his twin sister, and his latest lead has brought him to Saddle Wells. When realtor Nida hands over the keys, something sparks between them. But even as undeniable interest turns to hot nights together, Nida is not sure she can stand by and watch him destroy himself when his investigation sends him on a path toward a potentially disastrous act of revenge.

Naked Hunger
Raising livestock in Saddle Wells isn’t as exciting as the pro circuit for local rancher Ryan, but the sweet new vet in town certainly livens things up. Sable claims she has no time for a relationship, so Ryan suggests they have some friends-with-benefits fun while he convinces her she doesn’t have to choose between career and love. But when a costly mistake puts her career in jeopardy, Sable could lose everything.

I never expected forever when I married Lucas all those years ago. It was a dare, encouraged by one too many vodka shots. It’s surprising neither of us annulled the marriage. But the truth is, I can’t be a wife, not to any man, not even to sweet, wonderful Lucas, thanks to the monsters of my past that still haunt me to this day.

By some miracle, when I was desperate to save my brother, Lucas reappeared in my life. Lucas, who’d helped me so many times in the six months I’d shared his home as a sixteen-year-old foster kid. I had little choice but to take his offer – move to his Wyoming ranch and be his wife, for real this time. He doesn’t know the reason why I need the money, and it’s a secret I can’t tell.


Running into Melody in an Iowa bar seemed like fate. And when I heard she was in trouble, I had to help her, because I’ve always felt protective over her. In my heart, she’s always been mine.

Now that she’s with me at Devil Creek Ranch, I find it impossible to ignore the feelings I’ve carried for her since I was seventeen. I want a wife, a partner in life as well as in my bed, but I know she is hiding something from me. Something I fear may drive us apart in the end.

Publisher’s Note: This sweet romance contains elements of power exchange, adult language and sensual scenes.

“You’re my wife, Melody. I have a right to know what’s going on in your life.”

His angry tone added fuel to her rising temper. She needed an outlet for the mess of emotions she was feeling—guilt, pain, sadness, confusion. But she had no place to put them except deep inside. She jumped to her feet, and tried to brush past Lucas to get to her bedroom. She didn’t want to argue.

“Wait,” he said, grabbing her arm, “we’re not done here.”

She tried to jerk her arm away but he held fast.

“Let me go,” she hissed.

“Not until you tell me what’s going on, Melody.”

“Let me go,” she repeated.

“You will obey me in my own home.”

Obey? She hadn’t agreed to obey anyone.

“I’m not one of your employees, Lucas.”

When she tried to jerk her arm away again, and he didn’t release her, her temper snapped. She slapped him hard across the face, the sound of the blow echoing loudly in the room. Lucas’ face turned a frightening shade of red, and it took Melody several moments to realize what she’d done.

“So, that’s how it is, is it?” Lucas said through his teeth.

Fear swept through Melody. He’d kick her out now. She’d lost any hope of saving her brother’s life.

Lucas bent down, picked her up, and flung her over his shoulder. Shocked, she squealed as he marched down the hallway and into her bedroom. He deposited her on her bed, but kept hold of her as he sat down next to her. The next thing she knew she was draped across his lap, face down, and bottom up. She sputtered, and tried to wriggle away, but the palm of his hand came down on her backside in a stinging smack!

Good Morning everyone! Michele and I are so excited to share with you all, Kalkin. We have been working on this book for 6 years! Stuart being our model for Kalkin was just the icing on top.

Due to his status, we never in a million years thought we would be able to afford his professional prices, but when we found figured out we could...holy crap. It was on.

With the help of Golden, Stu, and Fiona, our cover is literally MAGIC! We are so proud of it. We are so anxious to share Kalkin and Keeley's story with you. We hope you enjoy it!

Life As An Island by Anya Summers

One of the challenging, frustrating, and rewarding aspects of creating my very own island getaway in my latest series was how I could add all the amenities and features I would want to have on that once in a lifetime vacation. That’s sort of how I devised it. I researched brochures and online travel websites for these fabulous tours to exotic locales. It helps too, that I have begun making preparations for my first trips abroad in the coming years to Ireland and Scotland and have lists of things to see, do, and explore. I absolutely plan on hugging a few standing stones a la Outlander. I’ll let you know how that turns out. 

As I have created the ins and outs on Pleasure Island, a tiny strip of land I created in the Bahamas about an hour south via boat from Nassau, there were a few things that became startlingly clear. One of the interesting things I realized that I was also imagining a reflection of the life I have fashioned for myself. Not the intense love scenes between my characters, mind you, but developing the type of life that is so worth living that at your end of days you skid into the grave sideways saying what a ride. It’s something I’ve worked hard to cultivate in my private life. 

In my Pleasure Island Series, the island was founded and is being run by Jared McTavish whom we met in the first book of the series, Her Master & Commander. In it, Jared had a vision, a dream that he chose to bring to life, an exclusive getaway for those that are part of the kinky, BDSM lifestyle. A safe space for people within the BDSM community to come together and freely be who they are instead of having to hide that part of themselves away without fear of recrimination or condemnation.

Now, all the heroes and heroines in subsequent books who have met and fallen in love on the island, did so because Jared brought the life he wanted into fruition and is continuing to expand on that dream throughout the series. And not to get maudlin or too introspective here, but that is what I, personally, have been working to establish and make within my own life, my life under my terms. So this entire series at its heart has been art imitating life and vice versa on that deeper level of consciousness. 

As I’m nearing the completion of this series, I can say that I’m living my best life yet. Don’t be afraid to go seek out yours. 

I hope you enjoy my latest installment, Duets & Dominance, where we meet Lizzie and Solomon, two long time best friends who shared a scorching kiss at another engagement that neither have been able to forget. We’ll see if they take a risk to chase after the love they hold for each other. 

A Pleasure Island Novel

Elizabeth “Lizzie” von Klepper has a problem of epic proportions—she’s the oldest virgin in the world. Invited to perform on Pleasure Island with her best friend Solomon, she devises a plan to seduce him, and rid herself of that infernal status. After all, they shared a mind-blowing kiss a year ago and that has to count for something, right? 

Solomon Ventura adores Lizzie. She’s been his best friend since their humble beginnings at Julliard, but deep down he’s yearned for her. For more. And ever since he tasted her, a stolen kiss he hasn’t been able to forget, he cannot seem to stop his mind from conjuring up myriad fantasies with Lizzie in the starring role. But he’s not the man for her. She’s light where he is dark, and his brand of love would shatter the only woman he’s ever cared about. 

Will the best friends move their relationship out of the friendzone? Or will a week spent on Pleasure Island destroy them both?
