It Happened on a Lie
"Are you always this offensive?"
"My apologies. I was merely surprised that a representative of such an esteemed society would stoop to trespassing."
Zoe Lawrence believes that the end justifies the means when it comes to preserving historically valuable buildings, especially such a rare shipyard as Wakefield was. So a little trespassing doesnít much weigh on her, until she gets caught by the owner. Who happens to be an extremely attractive man, who absolutely refuses to listen to her.
The lifelong dream of Aiden Rowe has been to build a luxury estate on a prime location. Now that he has found what he wants, he isnít about to change his plans just because the historical preservation society says so. Not even if their representative happens to be a beautiful woman who captures his interest from the start.
But Aiden isnít above asking Zoe for a favour: if she pretends to be his girlfriend for just one night, he will give her a fair chance to convince him to preserve the shipyard. One lie leads to another, and things soon get out of their hands. They hardly know whatís real themselves.
But they know the truth in their hearts. If only they could make their heads listen.
At her boss's command
"Turn around, slowly," she commanded in her most assertive voice.
"Why? Are you armed?" To Emily's annoyance, the question was more amused than frightened, and asked with a nicely-cultured, rich tenor unlike any criminal should have.
"Yes, I am."
It is a battle of wills between Emily Parr and Conor Peters from their first encounter. Emily's job depends on Conor and she needs to convince him that she is worth employing, and Conor is not above finding out just how far she is willing to go. Little by little, their power game moves to a different level where she realises that obeying his every command is exhilarating.
Until her heart gets involved.
However, everything is not well in the firm. Someone has been embezzling funds and the evidence points to Emily. Conor needs to find the real perpetrator or see the woman who has become essential to his well-being go to jail.
And then the threatening notes begin to arrive.
Which way to love? News agency love affairs.

The life of a junior correspondent for a large news agency is more eventful than she had expected and people there are more interesting than she had dared to hope for. There is Henrietta who needs a friend, and then there is Andrew who suddenly seems very enticing. And Marcus? Well, he seems more interested in her life than he has in ages.
But a war photographer's life is hazardous, as Audrey discovers to her horror. Will she be too late to save their marriage?
The Wolf's call. Two-natured London 1.
"Are you trying to intimidate me, Mr Green?" she asked calmly, refusing to lean back.
"Call me Rafe." But she just stared at him quietly, her arched brow challenging him to answer her question. It agitated his wolf, but he was so aroused he could barely breathe. He had never met a woman like her. "Yes, I am," he answered, his every word deliberate. He pressed his hands on the armrests of her chair and leaned closer to her face, never breaking the eye contact. "Is it working?" Closing in the short distance, he kissed her.
Having been raised by humans-first parents, Charlotte Thornton is completely unprepared for a man like Raphael Green, a wolf-shifter. After a lifetime of controlling herself, the onslaught of emotions he causes in her, both lust and aggravation, seem like too much to handle. Unlike human men around her, Rafe is not weak. But neither is she, and Rafe is about to learn it. She finds herself drawn to him unlike any man before, only to learn that he won't date humans. But what if she weren't a human?
Rafe never thought he would pursue a human, let alone a woman as dominant as Charly, but his wolf side has other ideas. For a shifter, ignoring their beast's choice is practically impossible, but he will try; his brother's marriage is enough of a warning. But as he is drawn to her with a maddening lust, it becomes difficult to prevent his wolf from putting out its call for her. Then her life is threatened and everything changes.
From the high-end neighbourhood of London to peaceful countryside, their enemies hunt them. Time for making up their minds is running out.
Warrior's heart. Two-Natured London 2.
"Who the bloody hell are you, and why are you here?"
When an apparent human-on-human shooting turns out to have non-human origins, vampire DI Philippa Audley is ordered to investigate. It would be easier, however, if she hadn't been ordered to work with Jasper Grayson, one of the legendary vampire warriors of the Crimson Circle. An old-fashioned relic of a bygone era with very peculiar notions of what a woman can and can't do is not an ideal partner for Philppa who has made a life's career of being the first vampire woman in everything. It doesn't help either that her late father, a Circle warrior himself, was Jasper's last partner.
Jasper Grayson isn't very accustomed to vampire women, let alone a woman as unique as Philippa who is used to giving orders and being obeyed. His Hunger compells him to protect her, but how is he to protect someone who refuses to listen to very reasonable commands to stay safe? And how is he to gain her trust when he is keeping a secret from her?
Black magic is afoot and a deadly enemy to vampires forces the pair to find a way to work together. But will they be able to put aside the demons of the past for a shared future?
