There’s a new Prince in town. And he thinks he’s my happily ever after. If only I believed in those.
Lance Jacobs. Roseboro’s new Most Eligible Bachelor.
He’s the stuff fairy tales are made of. Tall, handsome, strong. A dyed in the wool American hero . . . And if my scheming stepmother has anything to do with it, he’ll be married to my stepsister before he can tap out S-O-S.
But he only has eyes for me.
And though my attention is tied up in my new bakery, I know he wants me. I’ll admit that he makes my heart race, my body pulse, and my mind think of things that are definitely not as sweet as my famous cupcakes. I can’t help but think Lance would make a great Mr. Right . . . Now.
I don’t trust him to be more than that. Don’t trust any man after having my heart broken one too many times.
Even if he does make me want to break all my rules. Makes me want to take a chance. To believe again.
I do. Two simple words that mean so much. I do want to be your duchess. I do want to live in your castle. I do want to stop who’s trying to kill me.

“I’ve had his address and phone number all this time. I kept track of him.”
Those were the words my mother had said as she handed me the piece of paper that would change my life forever. The one that held my father’s name and address–the same father I’d always been told had died when I was a baby.
Even though my entire life until now, I’ve survived by being tightly-focused and in control, as soon as I learned my father was alive, I made a snap decision. I knew there was only one thing I could do: climb in the car and drive to meet him. The world’s most high-stakes road trip!
What I didn’t know at the time was that things wouldn’t go as planned. My car would break down. Then, the sexiest man I’d ever seen would pull his motorcycle over to rescue me, and I’d be captivated by his eyes and his shoulders, by his strength and calm capability…and that’s when the real adventure would begin.
I’ve survived up until now by insisting on stability, but surviving’s not enough for me anymore. With everything on the line, can I learn to truly live by Embracing Reckless?

Growing up mostly human in a Lycan pack has been hard for Shay. Shunned and distrusted by most, she wouldn’t have survived without the support of her foster family and alpha. She’s had a longtime secret crush on Trayis, her alpha’s VampLycan half-brother. Shay thinks he’s hot and finds the courage to approach Trayis during one of his infrequent visits. She’s hoping for just one night of ecstasy before she spends her life alone, unwanted.
Trayis is stunned when he realizes the sweet, timid Shay is interested in bedding him. He’s also furious when some pack women attempt to humiliate her in front of him. He’s more than happy to pick her over one of them. She might not be his type but it’s just sex. He’s up for that. What he doesn’t plan on is how she makes him feel.
So much for a simple vacation and a one-night stand.

My story started out with a guy who liked a girl. She looked like an angel to him. I was the guy, Ava the angel.

My enemies used my weaknesses against me, and killed my wife. Ava could have died too so I stayed away. The universe, however, had other ideas and threw her right back in my path. An angel like her didn’t belong in the dark world of a Mafia boss. I know that, except, I’m selfish. I should leave her alone, but I can’t. The problem is …history is repeating itself, and there’s an enemy in my circle. It’s the same game as before and this time losing could get her killed.
Avoid him… That was the most sensible thing to do. Ten years ago, when I first met Claudius, I knew he was trouble.
