Eighteen year old Rosalind, a German Catholic descendant, left South Africa for Israel with her doctor boyfriend, Foxy, so they could pursue their dream of helping the wounded soldiers together. But when his jealous temper again gets the better of him, she decides to end their relationship, but still continue her nursing studies. When she’s assigned to Ward 21, Rosalind finds herself inexplicably drawn to Eyal, the bearded soldier with the sparkling brown eyes who, even laid up in a full-body cast, asks her out—and teaches her about passion and sex. Though Rosalind struggles to understand her confusing emotions toward Eyal, who arouses her physically but whose interests and upbringing are so different from her own, she eventually accepts his marriage proposal. 'Together They Overcame' offers a surprisingly honest and explicit depiction of a newlywed couple’s first two years of sexual gratification in marriage as they face family drama, a mother-in-law's hostilities towards the wife because her mother is both German and Catholic, cultural prejudice, and the hardships in a young country in the process of establishing itself.

He’s never witnessed love in its finer form, for his youth was crippled by a difficult upbringing. But no one knows that. When he encounters Penelope Green at an art exhibition selling her work, he’s not only spellbound by her beauty, but by her art which speaks to his soul. It’s not just smoldering attraction that they share, but also difficult pasts. While her upbringing took place in a rundown estate caring for her troubled mother, Blake’s, although brought up in a picturesque village, was just as dark. He grew up around the windswept moors in a gothic castle with walls stained in secrets, and where his mother worked as a maid. Leading her into a world of opulence, taste, and raw lust, Blake Sinclair with eyes that flit from moody to stormy blue, manages to seduce Penelope. Her entry into his bedroom, other than eliciting steamy passion, opens up a part of him hidden even from himself. He soon finds himself swimming in uncharted waters. Although he’s not new to addiction, this time it’s not just sex that’s got Sinclair in its tantalizing grip, but something deeper and more powerful. Penelope’s not only a hot temptress, bu ...

But to get to know the big, built stonemason better, she’ll have to overcome his vengeful ex and her own inhibitions—and pray that the walls she’s built around her guarded heart and dark secret remain safe from a man who has a way with stone.
Krystina Cole was a girl on a mission. She had big dreams and aspirations, none of which included a man by her side. She knew better than that - at least until she met Alexander Stone, the New York billionaire real estate tycoon. She saw the way that he looked at her, and the dark promises in his eyes. She was curious about his world and all that it entailed. But the shadows of her past haunted her, making her afraid to explore possibilities that she could never before have imagined.... Alexander Stone was a man who knew how to get what he wanted. He understood the value of finesse, and the importance of patience and diligence to achieve the desired result. He was successful and wealthy, relying on his naturally sharp instincts to guide him through life. But a chance run-in with Krystina Cole quickly turned his world upside down. Her quick wit and firecracker attitude was the complete opposite of what he wanted in a woman, and his instincts failed him at every turn.... However, both Krystina and Alexander are clinging to the secrets of their past, and neither of them are willing to compromise. Krystina's hardened heart makes emotional surrender a hard limit. But for Alexander, revealing his past could have devastating results. Visit www.dakotawillink.com.
The second novel in the Suburbia Trilogy. One summer afternoon, Jolene Briggs, along with four other wives are discussing their mundane sex life in Gail Cavanaugh’s backyard, when Gail, their matron, makes this declaration: “I’m talking about us coming together like a horny wives’ soccer team and having fun as only horny housewives can. About us pooling together our resources of handsome black men around and sharing them amongst ourselves. What I’m talking about here is for us to start a sort of suburban wives club.” For the five wives, only one rule exists: Once you get involved, your sexual life can never be the same to want to go back again. For Jolene, the summer is about to get heated up in more ways she nor her friends can imagine. Just when you thought suburbia can’t get any erotic, you can never believe what the wives can do, especially with their husband’s support. If you enjoyed ‘Mary’s Addiction’, you’re going to loved ‘The Suburban Wives Club’.
The world that they live in is always dark, hideous, and mute. The outside is as dangerous as the inside, because for all he knows, Ghost always found the worst things not inside a suitcase full of dead body parts, but inside the human soul. The most destrctive weapon of all times.
Bambi is urged to get into bed, but Ghost, her most desirable man alive, is not the only one there. He gets Nykki, his babymama, to join the two of them in a night full of passion, adventurous sex and drugs.
That’s where the problems start. While Nykki would do anything for her lover and would not hesitate to kill for their relationship, Bambi’s implication into the duo’s perfect “staged marriage” is taking them apart, while keeping them together for a single purpose: to rule the streets they once ruled with a bag full of money, alcohol and pot.
While Bambi feels like an outsider every second the three of them get in bed, Nykki has one dream, and one dream only, to get rid of Ghost’s new human toy so that she can have him for herself. Will she get rid of Bambi? Will she have the family she always dreamt of

He’s Harrison Thornton, the oldest son of the illustrious Thornton family. His family would never accept a woman like Sara, a woman who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. She tries to ignore the whispers of her past, but she soon realizes secrets can never stay hidden for long.
Especially from the man claiming her wounded heart.
Her brother told me to stay away from her. Her brother can go f**k himself!
I'm a firefighter. When it comes to doing my job, I'm the best around.
Am I cocky? You're damn right.
Wild? I was. I've tried to clean up my act. Was doing a pretty damn good job of it too until I ran into Stephanie Frost after all these years. The heat from fires don't compare to what I feel when she's near me.
Her brother's a troublemaker who's been in and out of prison. He's even told me that he'll kill me if I don't stay away from his sister. He'd be pissed if he knew she's been squirming underneath me every single night.
Now that I've got a second chance, I'm not giving her up this time.
Her brother stole from my family. For members of La Cosa Nostra, the Sicilian Mob here in The Big Easy, that’s a death sentence.
It’s not just about the money.
It’s about the respect.
The deal is practically done, when his sister stumbles into my office, pleading for her brother's life. Sarah. Sweet, trembling, innocent Sarah. A damned kindergarten teacher.
She promises to pay her brother's debt. How? With her savings and her teacher's pension. I find her loyalty touching. But her meager savings aren't nearly enough. And now, there's something I want more than money, more than revenge…
I want Sarah. She'll be my plaything for one month, catering to my whims. All of them. When I make the offer –with very clear detail of how she will pay the debt– she's frightened, but heat sparks in her beautiful eyes.
She wants it too.
I will debase her. And she will beg me for it.
There was only one label for what we had. This was fate. ★Maddie McComber★ The one rule I lived by since I started tending bar was a rule I devised to protect myself from jerks who liked to hit on me, as if serving them drinks with a smile made me the easiest target for their pleasure. My rule was firm: I did not, under any circumstances, sleep with the regulars. The last thing I needed was a man derailing my career trajectory in law, especially since I had one year to go until graduation day from Harvard. I worked my you know what off, and the rule served me well to start, until fate put someone in my path who I was attracted to like a magnet. It figured that it was only a matter of time until this happened, when a man charmed me and possessed a magnetic field that was unavoidable. ★Daniel Jones★ I didn't do relationships thanks to plenty of experience I had with the painful side of love. The way my dad cheated on Ma. The way my ex cheated on me. All reminders of why I couldn’t pursue the gorgeous woman behind the bar. Maybe I was a good catch on paper, but my heart sheltered in place and life was simpler that way. Besides, a woman like Maddie deserved better than me. She deserved the romantic guy who would bend the earth in half for her just so she could walk across it. I knew I didn’t have that in me. Did I? When trouble struck at the pub and Maddie needed someone, I was there for her. I couldn’t ignore how she looked at me like I was her savior—and how much I lived for th ...
I had the perfect life. Then an accident took everything I loved.
After two years of barely getting by, I need to get away from here.
My plan? Drive across the country until I find a new place to live. There is just one problem with that. I have to take an old family friend along for the ride.
At first, I don't know what to make of Ryan Grant or the way it feels like he can see through me with those gorgeous green eyes of his. He's got secrets. And he's definitely holding a lot back.
But wow, there's so much more to him than I expected.
Not that it matters really, my heart and mind are trapped in the past.
I've never had the perfect life. And lately work seems to be my only focus.
Probably because I've been betrayed a time or two by people I thought I could trust. By people who were only after me for one thing. So I'm moving west from Philly to Seattle.
There is just one problem with that. I don't fly. Ever.
So when Katie Taylor offers to drive me across the country, how can I say no? She is my dream girl after all. Always has been.
But is her tragic past too much for her to overcome?
