So why does Larenz find himself risking his cool and dropping his guard to spend the night with her?
The undoing of the playboy…
Just one night…but for Larenz it doesn't turn out to be enough. Is his unworldly housekeeper going to be his undoing?
The huge imposing castle and the barren terrain of Merkazad are a far cry from the modest farm and the emerald fields that horsewoman Iseult calls home. Or used to, until Sheikh Nadim bought her family's stud farm. As part of the deal, she must work at his royal stables….
Nadim enrages Iseult…but he also inspires a more unwelcome, unfamiliar feeling: desire. Drawn into Nadim's sensual world, Iseult feels like a beautiful, confident woman for the first time.
But she must remember the sheikh's cast-iron rule….

Years later, Francesca, no longer so youthfully naive, is determined to reclaim the precious gem! But she's forgotten that Marcos lives up to the treasure's name—and dealing with the devil is always dangerous

With the exception of one—shy vet Jessica Martin, who refuses to become his weekend plaything. But when Jess's flaky relatives steal from Halston Hall, Cesario's country retreat, he has all the ammunition he needs! For now he'll enjoy her creamy-skinned beauty, but in the future he'll need an heir….
Lucas Vieira needs a translator to seal a high-profile business deal, and a woman to pose as his girlfriend to fend off a colleague's overeager wife—so why not kill two birds with one stone?
Linguist Caroline Hamilton jumps at the chance to earn some decent money. However, when she meets her client, she realizes she may be out of her league. The powerful Brazilian seems to be interested in more than just her brains….
Is the price of this passion too high?
