It begins with some seriously sexy action in the elevator. And it doesn't stop there. Julie Thompson is living out her naughtiest fantasies…at work. Who knew she'd find a secret fling right in her own office building?

Sam Finn can't believe his good fortune. The undercover multimillionaire has been watching Julie via the security monitors…and now he has her in his arms anytime he wants! And he wants her there…a lot!

In fact, he's quickly becoming addicted to the great sex they share. Unfortunately, he's just learned that Julie's company is failing and she'll be leaving for good in three weeks.

Under His Spell

Harlequin Blaze. 2010

Nicky Taylor is a driven executive. A total control freak. And magician Jimmy Ray has loved her forever. When he spots her in the audience, he realizes he finally has a chance to fulfill his own lifelong fantasy. With a little help from Dr. Mesmer, that is…

Who'd have guessed that a little hypnotism would unleash Nicky's wildly sexual nature? Or that Jimmy's powers of persuasion would encourage her to burn up the bedsheets with him that night…and the nights after. She's the perfect woman.

Unfortunately Jimmy's pretty sure Nicky's still under his spell. And he has to change that. Because he's quickly falling under hers…

In Good Hands
ISBN: 037379603X

Harlequin Blaze. 2011

Amber Smithson just had mind-blowing sex with a totally hot stranger. In an elevator! Ditching her high-powered medical career to become a homeopathic doctor sure didn't prep her for this kind of hands-on therapy.

Corporate lawyer Roger Martell leads a high-pressure lifestyle that's given him money and power…and, unfortunately, high blood pressure. His solution? Ask the deliciously soothing doc to help him out with a few alternative treatments…and plenty more steam-up-the-yoga-studio sex!

The results leave them both healthy and very, very happy.

Still, a few nights of great sex won't bring down Roger's blood pressure indefinitely. Amber's in his bed now, but that doesn't mean she'll stay there.

Unless, of course, Roger can talk Amber into making those house calls a permanent thing….

PR representative Alicia Flores is fed up. Her job is a dead end, her love life is nonexistent and life is pretty much…well, boring. So when she's unexpectedly offered a chance to play a character from a video game—the warm and sensuous Queen Guinevere—for a promotional tour, Alicia decides to toss her shy-gal persona…and play her new part to perfection!

What she's not expecting is sinfully delicious video-game guru Ken Johnson—a rare breed of nerd who is hot, successful and damn sexy. And he knows just how to coax the sexy vixen in her out to play! As late-night pleasures take center stage, Alicia finds herself pulled further into Ken's sinful world of make-believe. But can she give up the fantasy when it's time to return to the real world?

ISBN: 1468067982

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 2001

WAR! It was pity that made Sophia accept the offer of marriage. True, Major Anthony Wyclyff was wildly handsome, but that could never overcome her happiness at being off the marriage market! She was "shelved" and revelled in her new freedom as a spinster. But then the blasted man recovered! Not that she wished anyone ill, but Sophia had expected to bury the man along with all her childish hopes and dreams. Instead, they ended up tumbling about in the dirt! Anthony was determined to claim his bride, so he forced her into a strategic retreat, to act in ways she never dreamed. His flanking attack brought him closer than ever--into her manor, her parlor, her bedroom. He was so sure of his success that he wagered he'd have terms of surrender within the month! Yet while his fiery kiss sapped her defenses, Sophia swore the only terms she'd hear were those of love.

Miss Woodley's Experiment

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 2002

MISS WOODLEY’S EXPERIMENT Miss Caroline Woodley had climbed the tree to get away from Harry. Her friend Alvina had claimed a woman should tingle when she kissed her beloved, and since Caroline and Harry were destined to wed, it seemed only right that she should try a little test. But it had gone terribly wrong. Instead of tingle-inducing, Harry’s kiss had been. . . wet. And so she’d punched him. Then she’d climbed up the tree. THE EARL’S DISCOVERY Geoffry Ratherburn had climbed the stairs to get away. It was true that he needed a match to get the family fortune back, but the dowagers and daughters downstairs were only after his title–just as he was after their money. Then a young woman climbed in off a tree branch wanting something entirely different. Of course, he was certain he could assist he could make her tingle with a kiss–and do more with the rest of his body. The real question was if he could win her heart as she had his.

No Place for a Lady

PERFECT ANYWHERE The rookeries were slums, shunned by London’s upper crust, but an assassination was being planned there and Marcus Kane, Lord Chadwick, was told he would not be able to navigate the labyrinthine underworld alone. His time spying in France was not experience enough he would require a partner. Fantine Delarive was the one. She knew the street better than he, had survived it for years and knew its every criminal. And though those things made her entirely unsuitable to one of his acquaintance he began to see that Miss Fanny fit in everywhere the
