Whether in downtown Manhattan or the deep Ontario forest, shape-shifters answer to Darien Hawkmoor, and rely on him to keep the peace. He acts in the name of the long-missing Lady Hawkmoor, their hereditary ruler, to whom he was bonded as a child. When Lady Hawkmoor unexpectedly surfaces, the myths evaporate. Darien must deal with a stubborn, scrappy individual whose wary eyes hold the other half of his soul, but who has the power to destroy his world
To My Readers: What’s a good man to do when his options narrow down to the possible destruction of his entire society or the certain destruction of his true heart?
Darien Hawkmoor’s world is under control—his control—and he likes it that way. Then his long-lost child-bride surfaces, a lusciously curved adult with no memory of the shape-shifters’ Hidden World and no understanding of the precarious balance of power among the Families. Darien’s carefully built peace shatters as the various Families vie for power and position. With people dying, and the moon swelling toward full, he faces the most painful of decisions. He must bring Lady Hawkmoor under control, or he must sacrifice her to rebuild the peace.

Rachelle Chase - Out of Control
Astrid Thomas’s world revolves around her business, Ventures, which is why she’s hoping to pick up wealthy Erik Santos as a new client. Only Erik is hoping to pick up something entirely different: A weekend trophy wife. Will Astrid give in to seductive pull of Erik’s proposition and do something she’s never done before — be Out of Control for 48 hours?
To My Readers: I find the concept of control—giving it up, taking it—intriguing. Which made me wonder… what if a woman who thrived on being in control met a man who challenged her to give it up?
To my family, who has always stood by me, loved me, encouraged me, and supported me, I love you.
Charlotte Featherstone - Lessons In Pleasure
A wicked bargain has Lily Farrington vowing never to yield to the demands of the rake she once loved and lost. Unfortunately, Damian Westerham, the Earl of St. Croix, or Saint as he is infamously known, will not take ‘no’ for an answer. Vow or no, he means to have Lily, and he plans on getting exactly what he wants with his Lessons In Pleasure.
To My Readers: What could be sexier than an immoral Regency rake that uses his extensive skills to draw the one woman he could never have into his bed and his heart?
I give you Saint, a deliciously wicked bad boy who will stop at nothing to claim the woman he loves. Enjoy the fantasy…
This book is dedicated to my hero of a husband and my daughter. Without them I wouldn’t be living my fantasy—publication. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and willingness to exist on take out and Kraft dinners.
And to the three best writing friends an author could ever have. Kristina, for always being the voice of reason, the perpetual cheerleader and my Fairy Punctuation Mother. Thank you for encouraging me to take this path and for having faith in my abilities when I couldn’t see them. Kathi, for her continued support, her belief in my talent, and for encouraging me to keep Saint as wicked as he wanted to be. Thank you for helping me believe in myself. I love having you as a fan. And Amy, who has struggled through all my ‘bad’ writing attempts to get me here. Who is an indispensable font of wisdom, knowledge and advice—thank you so much.
