A phantom lover might be just what Marie needs. After a year and a half of widowhood, she’s ready to move on with her life. She’s also looking for ways to increase the profits of her struggling bed-and-breakfast.

Gordon MacBain, the lusty ghost of a Revolutionary War smuggler turned gentleman landowner, atones for his youthful transgressions by lavishing erotic pleasure on women who sleep in the room he haunts. But his night of passion with Marie surpasses all others, leaving them both yearning for more…

One problem — Gordon is trapped with his wife’s ghost in the room where she killed him.

Diera invades a mysterious sorcerer’s garden, searching for her brother. She plans to offer herself in exchange for her brother’s life and a healing potion to cure his sick child. When she meets the sorcerer, she is shocked to discover that he is half man, half beast and she expects him to kill her. Instead, he seduces her and demands that she become his mate.

Inflamed by the magical berries he uses to brew love potions and lulled by his sensual aura, Diera finds deep sexual pleasure and unexpected joy in her new life. But when she awakens from the trance of desire, doubt and fear creep in. She realizes that she must choose—her home and family, or the sexy beast.

Erin’s father abandoned the family when she was a baby, leaving her his heritage of lycanthropy. As a werewolf, she tries to live as much like an ordinary woman as possible. One night Raoul, her father’s foster brother, now estranged from the pack just as her father was, confronts her with shocking news—her father has been murdered by the new alpha male of the pack.

Raoul urges Erin to help him find an amulet whose power awakens only for wolves of the alpha bloodline. The welfare of the pack demands that Erin activate the amulet to drive out the usurper who killed her father. She wants nothing to do with werewolf society, but Raoul offers an incentive—the pack leader has a secret hoard of a potion that can suppress the change from human to beast. But the only safe way to infiltrate the pack is for Erin to pose as Raoul’s bonded mate.

The fiery attraction between them threatens to lure Erin into a life she never wanted. Her craving for Raoul forces her to reassess her deep-seated feelings about her beast nature. If she wants Raoul for her true mate, must she embrace her role as her father’s heir, too?
