Determined to have her children and grandchildren present for what may be her last Christmas, the eccentric and fiery Libby Westbrook, Dowager Duchess of Latham, takes matters into her own hands. Proclaiming a top-secret crisis, the elderly dame sends urgent missives far and wide, summoning her kinfolk home. Putting aside bitter rivalries, pressing obligations, and perilous liaisons, the duke’s eight children journey to their ancestral home—some curious, others with excited anticipation, and at least one, grudgingly reluctant. Days filled with holiday traditions and activities bring forgiveness, laughter, and love as the Christmas season works its magic. Or is Grandmama, descended from Roma gypsies and claiming to possess a supernatural gift, responsible for the transformation? Hearts are healed, relationships rekindled, souls rejuvenated, and the Westbrooks realize that at any time of year, family is the greatest gift of all.
Being a space pirate doesn’t make a being rich, which was why Rhilax was dealing with the biggest crime lord in the ten quadrants against his better judgment. He doesn’t know much about the job on offer, but he knows it’ll pay for food and supplies for himself and his brothers. Maybe enough to find a nice, quiet planet somewhere, forget about a life of smuggling and finally settle down. He’s certainly not prepared when a female slave, none the likes he’d seen before, is led naked, chained and helpless to be his fated mate.

The Earl of Goldthwaite had spent his entire adult life accumulating wealth. It was his life’s goal to never end up as his father had, penniless and rotting in some debtor’s prison. He has no time for such silly notions as love or romance. When he eventually marries, he’ll find a nice heiress to increase his holdings. But when Miss Penny Walters waltzes into his life, he knows she’s all wrong for him. As poor as her name implies, she’s nothing that he wanted. Just another woman attempting to part him from his gold. So why can’t he look away?
She’s a human. Forbidden. My brother’s widow. But deep down, my wolf believes she’s mine. Before my brother died, he made me swear to stand by his human mate and their son. It’s been 10 years since his death, and I’ve done my best. I joined the military, got my sh*& straight. I sent money but stayed away from Julia and my nephew. Stayed out of their life. She didn’t need a screw-up like me hanging around. That was the lie I told myself. The truth was, I couldn’t resolve my attraction to her. And I can’t dishonor my brother’s memory by claiming his wife. But now her pup has entered puberty. He’s become a wolf. He needs me there to guide and protect him. Julia hasn’t forgiven me for the years I stayed away, but this time I’ll do right by her. I’d do anything for the two of them. But she’s the one I want to guide. Protect. Command. She’s the one I crave and will until my last breath.
She’s the one girl this player can’t have. A human. I’m dying to claim the redhead who lights up the club every Saturday night. I want to pull her into the storeroom and make her scream, but it wouldn’t be right. She’s too pure. Too fresh. Too passionate. Too human. When she learns my secret, my alpha orders me to wipe her memories. But I won’t do it. Still, I’m not mate material—I can’t mark her and bring her into the pack. What in the hell am I going to do with her?

I met Axel, a mysterious, beautiful young artist in Vienna. As he led me to discover the city: a beautiful European capital with rich culture and art, this incredible encounter changed my life forever. As an artist, he portrayed human weaknesses and frailties. What is art? How does one become an artist? But when his veiled childhood suffering prevented him from getting close to me, I found myself in turmoil and desperation. Would he ever open himself up to me? In the midst of unanswered questions, I discovered the thief who stole Axel’s painting was right under my nose, and I decided to take justice into my own hands. But even so, would Axel ever accept my heart?
No one takes what’s mine. The lovely attorney kept a secret from me. A baby she’s been carrying since Valentine’s night. The night we were thrown together by the roulette wheel. She never contacted me. Meant to keep me in the dark. She’s about to find out what happens when you cross a bratva boss. Punishment is in order. Sequestering until the birth. And I’ll use that time to win her surrender. Because I don’t just plan to keep the baby—I plan to make his mother my bride. And it would be much better for both of us if she were willing.
