To Devlin McCain she was a fool chasing moonbeams, a spoiled rich girl who fancied herself an archaeologist and believed her money could buy anything. But beneath her spinsterish façade burned a blistering sensuality he was powerless to resist, and he would journey through hell to claim her.
To Kate Whitmore, he was an overbearing brute who treated women like chattel, an unscrupulous scoundrel who valued gold above all else. Yet try as she might, she couldn’t deny the irresistible allure of this dangerous man.

After the devastating scandal her mother had caused years ago, Sarah Van Horne avoided the slightest whiff of impropriety, along with any chance for marriage. She froze eligible gentlemen where they stood. Fortune hunters retreated in defeat. But the dangerously handsome burglar she caught in her New York City mansion stole every trace of her composure. Although she ought to send the suave rogue to prison, she had reasons not to involve the authorities. And the idea of this captivating scoundrel behind bars disturbed her far more than she wanted to admit.
Confident, ingenious, and devilishly charming, Lord Austin Sinclair knew how to get what he wanted. A locked door would not prevent him from retrieving a dangerous stolen artifact, nor the pistol Sarah aimed at his head. Still, he had never expected the icy beauty would tempt him. An entanglement with Sarah could prove a disaster. He must deceive her to get what he wanted. Unfortunately, the beguiling lady threatened his heart as well as his mission.

After Dominic forced Jane into marriage, Jane vowed to thwart his attempts at seduction, and earn her freedom. She steeled herself against the blackguard, aware he would go to any lengths to win their bargain and seal her fate. Yet nothing could have prepared her for her husband’s abrupt change the day after their wedding. How was it possible the detestable scoundrel could suddenly send her pulse racing with a single touch?

Although she could not deny an irresistible attraction to the infuriating brute, he was hardly the proper blue blood her father expected her to marry.
A powerful sorcerer, Connor had traveled through the ages to reach his soul mate, the bewitching beauty who had captured his heart in dreams.
