Luke Berringer used to have everything--money, status. And just like that, he lost it all. Now a bodyguard for Berringer Security, he's determined to track down the woman responsible for ruining his life. But when he finally catches up with Vanessa Grant, he's in for one heck of a surprise....
Vanessa is no con artist. It's a case of mistaken identity, and worse for Luke, the woman has a hidden sensuality that he can't resist. With her life in jeopardy, Luke must protect an innocent woman, track down a guilty one...and determine if maybe the "wrong woman" isn't really the right one, after all!

He'll be any man she wants...except himself.
His touch was stronger than memory...
She should have died.
Instead, firefighter Erin Riley fought her way back, losing nearly a decade of memories--her much-loved career, her friends and her lost love. Now she's starting over. But the dark, intense gaze of Fire Marshal Bo Myers haunts her days...and her erotically charged nights.
With one kiss, Bo knows he's already in way too deep with his ex. The sheer force of their chemistry is stunning. But it's that connection that triggers Erin's lost memories. Each touch threatens to undo their past. It's only when Bo learns there's a serial arsonist targeting firefighters that he realizes what's really at stake. And the only way to save lives is by risking both of their hearts.
She's been there, done that--but never with the sexy hockey player next door.
Dating, marriage, divorce... Audra Leone has been there, done that. These days she's focused on her antiques business and doesn't need a man complicating her life.
Still, she can't help but notice the flirty ex-hockey player who owns the sports bar next door, but he's got two strikes against him. He's her landlord, and he's almost ten years younger--which puts Audra way outside the flock of twenty-somethings vying for his attention.
When Scott Beckett sees Audra hasn't closed shop during a major snowstorm, he checks in on her--to find her shackled to a post. He's more than happy to help and close the distance she keeps firmly between them. He's well over his playboy days and hungering for something stronger, something lasting.
One spontaneous, bone-melting kiss leads to an explosive night of passion, and Scott realizes the quiet antiques lady is everything he craves. But it'll take some doing--and maybe a disaster or two--to convince her to give forever a chance.
