Rule #1: Teammate’s siblings are off-limits.
Haley has had enough hockey to last her for the rest of her life. The last thing she wants when she arrives at college is to live in her brother’s shadow but that’s nearly impossible when his face is everywhere she turns. Reid’s only focus has been one thing, make it to the NHL, until he meets the one woman that has the power to distract him. The only problem, she’s his best friend’s sister.
As much as she hates to admit it, Haley can’t stop thinking about the one person on campus she should avoid. Reid doesn’t seem to care about the reasons why they shouldn’t be together, and the longer she looks into his sapphire eyes the harder it is to resist him.
Are they willing to risk the wrath of the team or lose each other?
Rule #1: Teammate’s siblings are off-limits.
Her willingness to blackmail me into her bed is shocking. But I can’t help myself.
I’ve worked my face off to make a name for myself in the architect world, and finally it’s landed me the perfect job—teaching at my local university. Not a day goes by when a student doesn’t flirt and try their hand at winning my heart, if only for a night. But I know the rules, and I follow them closely. No way in hell I’m giving up this sweet gig. My newest student has stolen my attention and has me thinking things I should never think. And her flirting goes to a new level. She’s defiant, dark, and not afraid of a little blackmail to get what she wants.
The young woman is beyond beautiful and everything I fantasize about, but I have a secret I want to keep hidden. Unfortunately for me, she knows it and is more than happy to use it to get what she wants most—me. What started out as a one-time payment turns into a burning need neither of us can ignore. I just hope this girl is the type that doesn’t kiss and tell. Otherwise, I’m ruined.
Jason King is the worst. Cocky. Frat boy. And the biggest bully around.
But he’s not the only player on the board…We’ve got our Knight-in-shining-leather, Donovan. My best friend and a loner with a heart of gold.
And then there’s me…the Queen, obviously. Checkmate.
My sister’s death was ruled an accident, but it was all a lie…
They’re the kings of Welhurst University, heirs to the most powerful, corrupt, and ruthless families in Ascendence Bay. Each of them is stunningly gorgeous, rich, and talented.
Nobody is that perfect. All of them hide dark, dangerous secrets. And I’m going to expose them. I’m going to make everyone see exactly who they are.
Hate me all you want, ’cause loving me might just be harder.
No one is standing in my way of being the first to graduate from an Ivy League school. Especially not my flaming-hot first love. With his golden blond hair, tanned skin, sparkling blue eyes, and surfer’s body, every girl wants him and every guy wants to be him. It doesn’t hurt that he has a boatload of money backing him up or that his family name is on the gym at our college.
When we meet again, there’s nothing left of the boy I used to know in the man he’s become. He looks at me like I’m the enemy and I know I am because, once upon a time, I broke his heart. Now, he’s out for revenge and he won’t stop until he gets it.
Bring it, wicked rich bad boy. Bring it.
I grew up in a small beach town. I was expected to marry my high school sweetheart, have babies, and live happily ever after. That’s not how my story went.
We should have never crossed paths. He’s rich, sexy and arrogant. I’m a tomboy who’s a little crazy and a lot sassy. The only way to jump off the bridges I’ve burned is to sail around with him. I needed to clear my head, he needed to distance himself from his family. We were friends with a common goal of running away from our problems. In any other place, our friendship was an unlikely pairing. On the solitude of the water, we find ourselves fighting off an attraction that’s quickly turning more.
What happens once we dock? Can our budding relationship last the reality of returning home?
Marrying Megan was the best thing I ever did.
My childhood sweetheart. My best friend. My wife.
She doesn’t remember me.
Maybe my kisses will remind her of what she means to me, and the passion that once blazed between us.
What’s a girl to do when her best friend is making a huge mistake?
College sophomore Emily Dilbert has been best friends with Dylan Chamberlain since the second grade. When she finds an engagement ring in Dylan’s backpack, she panics and vows to do whatever it takes to stop him from marrying a girl he barely knows.
Dylan Chamberlain has been in love with his brother’s girlfriend, Emily, since they were kids. When his brother asks for help planning a surprise proposal, Dylan knows it’s time to bury his feelings and finally let Emily go. If only his heart would cooperate.
After her roommates fail to lure Dylan away from his girlfriend, Emily is forced to confront him directly. When she accidentally puts them in a compromising position, will Dylan reveal his long-buried feelings, or will Emily realize she’s dating the wrong brother?
I never should have agreed to becoming his fake wife…
Sinclair Amadeus Sterling aka Mr. Superior Jackass with a God complex. Who also happens to be my blackmailer… gulp. Tall, dark, gazzilionaire growly pants. The first time I met him, I kneed him in his very well endowed balls, don’t ask! He had that tightly leashed, controlling air and a smoldering glare that made me damp in seconds. The only thing that sucks worse than his attitude is his (lack of) sense of humor! Honest. Sadly, he’s also the one who could save my business from going bust. Hell! So when he offers me the chance to work with him, I can hardly refuse, right? Only catch? I need to be his pretend wife for hold-your-breath, thirty days.
I should have turned and run right then, but…He has the connections to help my sister’s failing health, not to mention the money to wipe away my debt. And yeah that… sneaky video recording of him getting me off. OMG! Besides, it’s only thirty days, right? It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with London’s most notorious bachelor.
Then he tells me the real reason for the charade. And everything changes…
They’d called it betrayal.
He was gone, and he hadn’t deserved her yet I was labeled a traitor. I had loved her long before I should have but this thing between us was fragile. She was everything that was right in my world—but maybe we just weren’t meant to be.
Jack ‘Bronx’ Devlin is the toughest of the tough. He grew up breaking colts and parachutes into wildfires as a smokejumper for a living, but Layla Rafferty, the elusive woman he loves but can’t have, might be the one to finally break him.
