In Lora Leigh''s FOR MAGGIE''S SAKE, Maggie Chavez from Leigh''s sexy Navy SEALs series is in protective custody with a member of her former lover''s SEALs team.  Joe, her ex-lover, thinks Maggie is hiding information from him about a powerful drug lord and the deaths of some SEALs.  He intends to seduce her and get the information before she can sell it back to the drug cartel.  But when a member of the notorious crime family captures Maggie and holds her hostage at gunpoint, Joe realizes how wrong he is, and only he can save her life.
 
In Susan Donovan''s BED AND BREAKFAST, a stressed-out corporate dynamo with designer boots and a bad attitude is sent to the New Mexico mountains to "get centered" or not come back to Los Angeles. She arrives at the rustic Windwalker Lodge north of Santa Fe, only to find the place in the middle of a renovation and the hunky owner in a pair of lounge pants with no shirt and no idea she was coming. She plans to leave on the first available shuttle the next morning, but one of the area''s notorious rains washes out the bridge, and she''s stuck. Though resistant at first, she eventually lets the beautiful setting and the extraordinary man give her a new perspective on life, love, and especially sex.
 
In Lori Wilde''s SIREN''S CALL, Annie Grave is back in her hometown, St. Augustine, looking after her grandfather''s dive shop as he lies bedridden with a broken hip.  Though she is a Harvard MBA with a high-powered finance job in Manhattan and a boyfriend on the brink of proposing marriage, she''s never forgotten her first love, sun-bronzed dive instructor Duncan Stewart--or the day years earlier when she lost her virginity to him and he told her it was just a fling.  But what she doesn''t know is that Duncan has regretted that decision every day since.  Afraid of not being able to hold onto a smart, sexy, beautiful woman like Annie, he pushed her away and ran away from St. Augustine.  But now she''s back, and so is he, and he''s cooked up a plan to win her back.  After all, what girl could resist the lure of buried treasure, and a hot, handsome Scotsman to guide her on the hunt?
 
In Carrie Alexander''s HIS BODY ELECTRIC, an aloof stranger arrives at Karen Jaffe''s farmhouse seeking shelter at the height of a violent lightning storm. Strange events follow--the power goes out, every clock stops, sparks fly from the visitor''s fingertips. Alone in the dark with him, Karen uses her skills as a phone sex operator to seduce the mystery man, uncovering the secrets and erotic pleasures of HIS BODY ELECTRIC.
