Man of Few Words
Marine Pilot John ‘Duff’ Duffy was always good at following orders, even when it meant having to leave the woman he loved. Her father, then his superior, dictated it was the best thing for Kirsten’s future and Duff’s career. Good soldiers followed orders, no matter what the heart felt. It had been for the best…back then. But when he sees her years later across a crowded bar, he has one burning desire—to have her back in his life and bed again.
With a new job and her father’s estate to settle, Professor Kirsten Tanner wants a peaceful existence. The return of the handsome flight instructor who broke her heart and lit a fire to her desires challenges that. She’s determined not to fall victim to his quiet charm again, but the need to show him she too can love him and leave him is much too tempting. But one touch from Duff and Kirsten begins to wonder if maybe they can have more than one night of ecstasy.
Socialite Jackie spends her evenings as Delilah, a sex toy saleswoman, but her boyfriend Vince has grown tired of her reliance on battery-powered toys to have an orgasm. Under the ruse of a special weekend away, he lures her to his primitive fish camp on Lake Maurepas, Louisiana where he plans to delight her without vibrators. To Jackie, the camp is another world compared to her comfortable Uptown New Orleans home, and she’s afraid that she’ll lose this man due to her toy use like she lost her ex-husband. She doesn’t know if she can do without the toys or without the man.

Yoga instructor Diana Courbet wants to celebrate the end of a messy divorce in the best way possible, starting with a one night stand with the sexy, tousle-haired artist in her yoga class. He’s been the object of her desire for close to a year, and while he might be worth more than one sexy evening, that’s all her heart is willing to risk.
Mathias Kuning wants two things–to be a successful artist and Diana. Over the past year, he’s painted Diana in a series of nudes that show how much he’s grown to care for his beautiful muse. But to become a successful artist he has to show the sensual pieces, and to show them, she has to agree.
Will the risque poses of Mathias’ creation be the very thing that keeps Diana in his arms…or drives her out of his life forever?
Sexy nightclub entertainer Jessica Oldham has a secret. She’s prim church secretary by day, but when the lights go down she becomes a siren on New Orleans’ stages. Handsome security expert, Drew Favreau ignites the flames of lust she’s held at bay for so long, trapped in her boring world by commitment. She feels free in Drew’s arms, so free she entertains the idea of letting the naughty side of her come out to play until she can find a way to weave the dream into reality.
Drew has a problem–he’s not into security, he’s an investigator working undercover–and sexy siren Jessica is on his list of embezzlement suspects. Jessica is all sweet and innocence at her job, but when she leaves that world she becomes bold and wanton in his arms, and he wants nothing more than to forget the job at hand. Yet there’s a crook to catch, and unfortunately, Jessica’s name isn’t so easy to clear. Will Drew be able to resist the Jessica’s lure and solve the crime? Or will she convince him she’s innocent…except while Behaving Badly?

Summer brings more than just heat for Dani when Guy comes to play.
When Dani dances into a former classmate at a festival, romance blossoms, but the sex flops. When a friend suggests she attend an adult toy party to help her discover her G-spot, she grabs the closest box to avoid embarrassment.
She had no way of knowing that her new love, Guy, has an aversion to the type of toy she has from clerking in a lingerie and sex shop on Bourbon Street. Faced with losing Dani, Guy does all he can to work his way back into her heart and her bed with a toy of his own.
