The year a mutual friend introduces Julian West to Claire Fitzpatrick it's the start of an enduring friendship.
A friendship where both comfortably forget the sizzling attraction that flared between them when they first met. Now, six years on, that attraction has re-emerged and Julian and Claire discover that the compatibility they share as best friends is echoed in their romantic preferences.
As their romance blossoms, neither of them is prepared for the deep love they each come to feel, but are unsure the other shares. When they are finally faced with the release of overwhelming emotions Julian has spent years repressing, the couple must decide if they will go their separate ways or if theirs will be a love designed to last.
His By Design features a hot alpha male, an independent woman and a determined ex-lover, all wrapped up in an exploration of grief, fear and the ultimate power of a love that has been brewing for years!
The feud between Detective Rick Andrews and Sara Michaels is legendary and no one ever wants to stand in the line of fire when they go at it. Despite the feud, everyone knows Rick and Sara fell in love the day they met - only they just keep making war not love.
I've never forgiven Rick for humiliating me during my freshman week in college. Ever since I returned to my sleepy hometown of Lake Andrews, he insists on constantly watching over me. Maybe if he didn't frame his advice in 'do as I say' commands, I might be inclined to listen now and then, but his dominant decrees make me go for the knee-jerk response every time.
So why is just the thought of him such a turn on?
Can't deny the chemistry between me and Sara. Her intelligence and her spirit intrigue me and, for some unfathomable reason, the need to protect her consumes much of my waking hours and a few of my dreams as well. But she's too high maintenance. Especially as she holds a long time grudge and knows just how to push my buttons. Thing is our ongoing feud's about to reach combustion level. Sara's crossed the line and I'm determined to use the power her transgression grants me to lay down the law in a way she can't escape.
Her Keeper has mature content that features a hot cop (two actually), a crazy, hot proposition and two people who are stubbornly in love.
This is the complete book with a HFN ending consisting of all four episodes. No cliffhanger.
