Four best friends embrace their fantasies and make a pact of seduction to live out their deepest and darkest desires. The women place their lives in the hands of fate and one short straw declares Marley will be the first to awaken her secret wishes.
Reed, a Dom at sex club Castle Dolce Vita, has lived the BDSM lifestyle for awhile, but has yet to find a submissive that suits him. That is until he meets Marley, a woman seeking to indulge her fantasies.
As Reed guides her through a night of pleasure, Marley brings more to him than a perfect submissive--she stirs emotions in him long ago lost. By binding Marley, he runs up against his own limits, and now he has to choose between his self-protective barriers or surrendering to the wildfire Marley has reignited in his heart.
Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and elements, including spanking.

Shayla, ballerina professionista, vive per la danza. Quando parenti e amici le voltano le spalle, lei non si lascia scoraggiare, anzi continua ad inseguire i propri sogni più determinata che mai. Quando, in seguito ad un incidente stradale, riporta gravissime ferite alle gambe e rischia di non poter più ballare, le sue speranze cominciano però a vacillare.
Amir entra nella vita di Shayla con l’intenzione di curarla, ma quando la vede, costretta in un letto d’ospedale, lottare con le unghie e con i denti per sopravvivere, nel suo cuore si accendono sentimenti mai provati. Lui, che non conosce amore e desiderio, si ritrova attratto da Shayla come una falena dalla luce; eppure le regole del Paradiso proibiscono agli angeli di innamorarsi degli esseri umani… Se dovesse cedere alla tentazione diventerebbe un Rinnegato, un angelo caduto, condannato a passare l’eternità fra i demoni infernali.
Quando il suo desiderio per Shayla diventerà incontrollabile, Amir dovrà scegliere tra amore e dannazione, tra solitudine e beatitudine. Un angelo che ha vagato da solo sulla Terra per secoli sceglierà di rimanere sulla retta via o cadrà vittima del suo cocente desiderio e sarà condannato per sempre?

It’s all-out war (and no-holds-barred romance) in the climactic conclusion to Carrie Jones’s bestselling series.
Zara is at the center of an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Evil pixies are ravaging Bedford, and they need much more than one great warrior; they need an army. Zara isn’t sure what her role is anymore. She’s not just fighting for her friends; she’s also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves will be one of her greatest battles yet. Especially since she can’t even reconcile her growing feelings for her pixie king . . .
Unexpected turns, surprising revelations, and one utterly satisfying romantic finale make Endure a thrilling end to this series of bestsellers.

The steamy outtake that takes readers even further into Laurell K. Hamilton’s bestselling novel, Kiss the Dead.
You’d think I’d get used to seeing such a beautiful man and knowing he was mine, but it never grew old, as if his beauty and the fact that he was mine, and I was his, would forever surprise me.
With a vampire like Jean Claude around, it’s far too easy for Anita Blake to doubt her own appearance—and the hold it has on those who love her. But one hot tub and two incredibly sexy men—Jean Claude and Asher—will make her feel like the most lusted-after woman alive…or undead. Not bad for a mere human…
Includes an excerpt of Kiss the Dead, the new Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter novel.
