Chicago businesswoman Cynthia Courtland is completely focused on her career when a sensual, reoccurring dream disrupts her orderly life. Then a threat against her workplace forces her to take time off. She is lost with nowhere to go–only her empty apartment.

Work is Gabe’s life too; he takes it very seriously and will do whatever it takes to succeed. He’s been watching over Cynthia for a long time and he has her best interests at heart, but can he protect her from the danger she is blind to? When Cynthia insists on investigating the threat so she can get back to work, it makes Gabe’s job all the more difficult. 

When things settle, will there be more for them than a life filled with work? Will she give her dreams a chance to come true?

Go ahead, hate me.
We all have secrets.
I have them as well—dark, terrible secrets.
The only time I can breathe is when I forget.
I need to be numb. You don't want to know how.
But as long as I can breathe, the past cannot smother me.


Chasing Bristol by Shane Morgan

It started with a rose.
Then notes and gifts to show his affection.
It seemed so harmless at first
Until he breaks into my apartment...
...and a murder occurs.
Trust. Privacy. Control.
The courage to love.
He's taken it all from me.

But I will fight to take it back.

Bristol is trying to move on from a cheating ex. The last thing she wants are roses, gifts, and suggestive notes popping up at her apartment and at work.

When Bristol meets Mason—a charming and sweet guy who wants a chance with her—she’s convinced that he is the mystery guy trying to capture her heart. The thought fizzles when what appeared to be harmless turns into something much more terrifying, and Bristol realizes that Mason isn’t capable of such things—not in his position.

Bristol’s secret admirer is determined to have her for himself, no matter what. Will she have the courage to fight?
