I’ve never been in love. Never felt that fire or been so desperate for a man’s touch that he’s all I can think about.

Then Bronson Lockhart walks into the party I’m at with my boyfriend, Justin. Everyone notices him. How could they not? He’s ridiculously good looking with that dark brooding masculinity that inspires dirty thoughts of the sweetest kind…Too bad he’s also Justin’s adopted brother. And they clearly hate each other.

But I can’t help but notice the way Bronson looks at me that sets my pulse thrumming. I can’t help wondering how his lips would feel on mine…

My new boss: a wealthy, eccentric old woman hidden away in her opulent penthouse with only her secrets and me to keep her company, tells me to follow my heart by surrendering to my deepest desires rather than act sensibly. But I barely know Bronson even though he seems determined to change that.

As I submit to desire and fall into his buff arms, a battle brews between my head and heart: are those hungry kisses and caresses a con?


Locked up for a crime I didn’t commit, I vowed to do two things when I got out–find my birth parents and make my brother pay for setting me up.

Now I’m out of jail and ready to set my plan for revenge in motion, starting with seducing his girlfriend. Not that it will be a chore. Ava’s beauty stole my breath the moment I laid eyes on her. Sassy, intelligent, and sexy as hell, she’s got curves that fuel my darkest desires. But what starts as revenge soon turns into something more.

I want her…crave the sweet taste of her. Hell, who am I kidding? I’m falling for her.

But as secrets about my adoption start to unravel, I discover a startling connection to Ava’s boss. Was my meeting Ava a setup… or destiny?
