Actions have consequences—a lesson Scarlett Bernard is learning the hard way. As a “null,” Scarlett has always been able to negate the powers of the supernatural beings that surround her. But now her reckless decision to permanently change Eli from a werewolf to a human has left the Los Angeles werewolf pack in shambles, and upset the balance of power among the city’s supernatural factions. To make matters worse, Scarlett’s employers discover that a newly changed werewolf is running amok in the city. To catch the rogue werewolf, Scarlett will need help from both Eli and Detective Jesse Cruz of the LAPD…a situation that will force her to finally choose between them. However, Scarlett and her friends aren’t the only ones on the hunt—someone else is chasing the wolf. Someone with no reservations about collateral damage.

He's an Irishman with a wild past and a sexy grin.... Conor O'Neill, middle child of five Irish brothers, is resisting the lure of adventure by opening a surf shop near Green Valley, California. But when a beyond-gorgeous wedding planner interrupts his surf lesson with a swish of her skirt and barely-there "please", he can't help being drawn to a new escapade: landing the sexy hellcat in his bed. She's a single mom fighting to control her own sizzle and heat.... Madlyn Sanchez needs a change, and a fling with a guy who seems like he won't stick around for long could be the short-term distraction to her buttoned-up life. She's surprised, though, when the one-night-stand shows no signs of stopping. The man is addictive, and not just because of his sexy accent and ability to heat up the kitchen and the sheets. Whatever could go wrong when two opposites jump into bed? In no time at all, Madlyn and her son have Conor's heart. But can an Irish rogue who once cherished his freedom convince Madlyn to take a chance on love? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charles Lawrence.

A rogue nobleman, a rescued lady, and revenge undone by romance all play a part in this irresistible novel of best-laid plots, delicious deception, and unexpected passion. Two years have passed since Josie Wentworth was bought from the Sioux for a gold watch and whisked back to England by Marcus Wharton, the Duke of Blackthorne. When Marcus breaks his promise to return Josie to America, she ends up as a maid in the home of his charming but neglected nephews. Once Josie's long-lost family finds her, however, the suddenly wealthy heiress sets out to save the two boys from their indifferent uncle - and teach the duke a lesson in honor. Learning that Marcus is seeking a rich American bride to save his estate, Josie plots to catch his eye - certain he'll never recognize the beauty she's become as the ragged captive he rescued. But Josie doesn't wager on her marital charade taking a tender turn as the nobleman she's despised for years proves to be a very different man than she's imagined. And there's no denying his passionate caresses as she falls deeper under the spell of a husband determined to claim her heart. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Julia Gibson.

Courting Poppy Tidemore : Lords of Honor, Book ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Her name preceded her.... Lady Poppy Tidemore’s notorious family scandals assure her place in not-so-polite society. Of course, she didn’t help matters...with an infamous art lesson that left her name ruined. Now, Poppy’s only hope is to accept her sister’s invitation to live at the Paradise, the illustrious hotel owned by her brother-in-law. There she’ll be able to pursue her artistic studies without judgment. Except someone else at the Paradise knows Poppy, someone who used to occupy her girlish dreams: Lord Tristan. Thankfully, Poppy's no longer that naïve little girl, moonstruck by the charming rogue. In fact, over the years, she and Tristan have become unlikely friends. So, there should be no problem living under the same roof...or at least, that’s what she keeps telling herself....His reputation precluded him.... Scoundrel. Scapegrace. Soldier. That’s how he’s known...and not in that order. Tristan Poplar, now Baron Bolingbroke, has lost everything. Upon learning of his father’s dubious role in the disappearance of the rightful Maxwell heir he’s lost not only his title and wealth, but also his respectability. He’s determined to restore his honor at all costs. However, honor proves a tricky thing - as does self-restraint - the more time he spends with alluring Poppy Tidemore. His best course of action is to avoid her, but when Poppy presents Tristan with a legitimate offer he can’t refuse, both enter with clear heads and uninvolved hearts. Except, the more time they spend together, their arrangement blossoms into something more. And when an unexpected opportunity comes along for Tristan to restore his name, he’ll have to decide which matters most: fighting for honor or fighting for Poppy’s love. 1. Language: English.
