But when an outing with her book club leads her to a brewery taproom, the dark-haired beauty realizes that trouble in the form of sexy Jamie Donovan may be too tempting to avoid.

Too much of a good thing…

With her long ponytail and sparkling green eyes, Tessa Donovan looks more like the girl next door than a businesswoman;or a heart-breaker. Which may explain why Detective Luke Asher barely notices her when he arrives to investigate a break in at her family's brewery. He's got his own problems; starting with the fact that his partner, Simone, is pregnant and everyone thinks he's the father.

Tessa has her hands full, too. Her brother's playboy ways may be threatening the business, and the tension could tear her tight knit family apart. In fact, the only thing that could unite the Donovan boys is seeing a man come after their baby sister. Especially a man like Luke Asher. But Tessa sees past the rumors to the man beneath. He's not who people think he is and neither is she.

Nadia Conrad has big dreams, and she's determined to make them come true—for her parents' sake as well as her own. But between maintaining her college scholarship and working at the local day care to support herself, she barely has time to think, let alone date. Then she moves into a new apartment and meets the taciturn yet irresistible guy in 1B….

Daniel Tyler has grown up too fast. Becoming a single dad at twenty turned his life upside down—and brought him heartache he can't risk again. Now, as he raises his four-year-old son while balancing a full-time construction management job and night classes, a social life is out of the question. The last thing he wants is for four noisy students to move into the apartment upstairs. But one night, Nadia's and Ty's paths cross, and soon they can't stay away from each other.

The timing is all wrong—but love happens when it happens. And you can't know what you truly need until you stand to lose it.

The only woman Nigel wants is the one woman he can’t have.

Claire has entered the Mating Run at the urging of her coven, but it’s not yet Nigel’s turn to participate. Despite the pain it causes, leaving town is the only way to ensure he keeps his hands off the sultry witch. When his brother dies months later, Nigel is summoned home. Pack law dictates he must protect Taylor’s widow—Claire.

The only wolf Claire wants is the one who broke her heart two years earlier.

Instead of fighting for her, Nigel let pack law run him out of town. Now the sexy shifter’s back and their sexual chemistry is as combustible as ever. But Nigel is in line to be alpha, and Claire won’t be ruled by pack law ever again—it’s already destroyed more lives than Nigel knows.

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously published elsewhere as Hungry Like the Wolf.
