His Little Star

BWWM Romance Novella

Traveling to Italy for business sounded like a dream. Three glorious weeks of sightseeing and sampling the local nightlife.

Matteo Russo caught my attention from the start.

We met at a crowded nightclub. The gorgeous older man sauntered over, plied me with liquor, and whispered illicit invitations in my ear. It’s no surprise we ended up naked and horizontal in his bed.

The next morning, I made my graceful exit with a kiss, convinced it would be the last time we saw each other.

Imagine my shock when he popped up at the office. Turns out he’s the guy that’s trying to ruin my family’s business.

My job was to use whatever tools in my arsenal to force him to capitulate.

A Roman conquered my heart.

But secrets threatened to destroy us forever.

It’s a Work Thing

I shouldn’t be attracted to Dynex’s wonderboy, Garrett Hamilton. He’s a client, and clients are off limits. But something about him makes me want to ignore the rules and roll the dice. I should have remembered corporate games never end well—especially when you gamble with your heart.


 One Tiny Kiss

After a three-year delay, Natasha is serious about finishing college. She can’t afford distractions, especially the big man on campus who happens to be her best friend’s little brother.

Natasha still sets Bradford’s soul on fire. But Bradford has his work cut out for him if he will overcome her doubts.

Kandi’s Crush

This summer, I was supposed to catch up on all the fun I missed while my nose was to the college academic grindstone. Instead, I’ve been guilted into helping out with the family’s cleaning business. My client is the fabulously successful, insanely rich Chadwick St. Clair. As a kid, I lived to torment him. Then I grew up and crushed on him. Hard. He still makes my mouth water, my hands shake. But his playboy rep isn’t the only thing standing between us. Breathless kisses and addictive encounters may not be enough to build on for a lasting love.
