Bruno diCesare lives alone by necessity, not choice. An experiment performed by Leonardo da Vinci, who believed having a dual DNA would grant a person immortality, used magic to render Bruno a chimera—the head of a lion, body of a dragon. The only time he can mingle with people is during Carnevale, ten glorious days of masked anonymity, frivolity, and intimacy.
Melina Weaver learned fire dancing to enliven her dull existence. Her long hours at the lab leave no time for a social life. For ten days at Carnevale, she can pretend to be someone else. Someone sexy and daring, who lives on the edge.
Once she meets Bruno, her wish comes true, but everything goes terribly wrong. Beneath Bruno’s costume lurks an alpha male, but is he dangerous? Worse, can she return to an employer who sells her research to the military to make an army of efficient killers? Her only hope may lie with the man she’s just met but has never seen.
Keeping an eye on his charge isn’t easy. Keeping his hands off? Impossible…
It took attending his own funeral to force Logan to accept a new life as an undercover MI6 agent. That doesn’t make his latest assignment any less aggravating. Babysitting a Russian pop star with delusions that someone’s trying to kill him.
Other than an inexplicable attraction Logan ruthlessly suppresses, he couldn’t have less in common with the irritating, arrogant rich kid. He’s even prepared to walk away—until very real bullets start flying.
After his mother’s death, Zak Kochenkov’s life unravels in an impenetrable haze of grief, drugs and alcohol—until one bodyguard candidate stands out. Except his hopes of having some fun with that guard’s body evaporate when he realizes Logan is buttoned up tighter than a clam.
The first thing Logan learns is that his charge won’t do as he’s told. And there’s some secret behind his haunted eyes that shakes Logan’s resolve to keep him at arm’s length. Because he knows if he lets passion close his eyes, that’s when danger will find them both…

Finn’s revelation has placed Ella between a rock and a hard place.
Unsure how to reconcile herself to his true nature, she struggles with trust
issues and her feelings for him. Add to the mix her discovery that her dead
ex-partner harbored more secrets than a library book can contain, and Ella has
just about more than she can handle. With the snow wolves and dragons loose, the
out-of-season heavy winter and a return of the mysterious Guardians, Ella’s week
is looking sucky at best — if the world doesn’t end first.
And more thanks to Marion Sipe, cover and graphic artist extrodinaire for fixing the typo in Temujin with a smile. When a character picks a name in honor of a guy in the top ten of the most evil males in history, leaving the i out isnt a good thing. Good news, it only took me once to do a search replace and correct 109 spots in the novel, and 6 times to reload and re-publish so the picture of the chart was line up correctly (I hope).
