The South Pacific Archipelago is home to a tiny island community of around three hundred scientists… and twenty thousand dinosaurs. As a paleogeneticist, Kit Sterling leads a team studying the dinosaurs to unlock the unanswered questions of evolution.

But there is something more dangerous than dinosaurs on the islands.

Head ranger Logan Beck discovers evidence of poachers, while rumors of a black market for dinosaur leather swirl around the community. Kit and Logan haven’t always gotten along professionally, though that has nothing to do with their attraction to each other. So when they’re thrown together to save an injured infant dinosaur, their professional disdain turns into a clandestine romance.

With not just the injured dinosaur at risk, but all of the precious dinosaurs on the islands too, Kit and Logan have to figure out how to balance their budding romance without letting their careers go extinct.

Tucker Springs

A Tucker Springs Novel

The trails around Tucker Springs, Colorado, are perfect for horseback riding, and Nathan finally has the horse he’s been saving to buy for years. So it just figures that the first day he takes Tsarina out for a ride, some guy on a motorcycle spooks her and she throws him, leaving him with two broken limbs and no chance of enjoying the trails for the rest of the summer.

Mechanic and nomadic motorcycle enthusiast Ryan feels awful that his wrong turn resulted in injury and inconvenience. To atone, he offers to exercise Tsarina for Nathan, with one caveat: Nathan will have to teach him how to ride. 

Lessons turn to friendship and then to mutual attraction, but Nathan is determined that attraction is where it ends. He’s been hurt before, and he knows Ryan will never settle down. He might just be too skittish to give them a chance—unless Ryan can convince him to get back in the saddle.

Essere amati da un drago significa essere trattati come un tesoro inestimabile.

Cento anni fa, l’Alfa Montgomery, spinto dalla disperazione, ha scelto di correre un rischio: ha preso in prestito dei soldi dall’antico drago Warwick Ehecatl, lasciando come garanzia le terre del branco. Ora è arrivato il momento di pagare il debito, e i draghi non dimenticano… né perdonano. Warwick esige come risarcimento il figlio di Montgomery, Avery, e tre delle sue attività commerciali. Avery è un Omega e sa di essere praticamente inutile al branco, quindi potrebbe anche accettare, ma ha dei ripensamenti: il suo futuro compagno è terrificante, e sarebbe libero di fare di lui ciò che vuole.

Warwick è consapevole della reputazione della sua razza, ed è persino disposto ad ammettere che in parte sia meritata, ma preferirebbe tagliarsi la coda piuttosto che smorzare la luce negli occhi innocenti del compagno. Non sarà semplice, ma c’è qualcosa tra loro che ribolle sotto la superficie e che vale la pena di proteggere.
