She was an independent woman-with only one weakness… an irresistible downtown man…
An immovable uptown lady… rich suffragette Beatrice Von Furstenberg was tough enough to trade stocks on Wall Street and smart enough to resist the temptation of passion. Adamant about women being independent-and without a romantic bone in her lovely body-she had sternly refused to give her moonstruck sixteen-year-old ward permission to wed an eighteen-year-old suitor. Now the desperate teens have dreamed up a mock robbery and a daring rescue to change Beatrice’s mind.
Attorney Connor Barrow, a rogue of an Irishman with a silver tongue, remembers all too well the burning desires of youth. So he agrees to help in a crazy plan that will land him in a world of trouble. Suddenly he is responsible for the most influential lady in the city being locked up in a brothel, furious and threatening his ruin. Neither of them expects that first breathless kiss-a deal that would make the devil himself blush-and, most of all, the ways love can change a man’s mind and open a woman’s heart….
My entire life I have been in love with one man. Ryker Stone.
It doesn’t matter that he is more than double my age. I don’t care about the whispers that say he’s too wild to ever be tamed.
I like that he’s reckless. He makes me feel like I can be uninhibited.
Truth is I saved myself for him. I belong to him.
I’ve had my eye on Lola for more years than I should admit. Her beauty drew me in, but it was her innocence that trapped me.
I shouldn’t want to claim her, but she’s all I desire. So I stay close and make damn sure no one else touches her. I’m all wrong for her, but too damn stupid and hard-up to stay away.
She can run, but I’ll follow. By the time it’s all said and done she’ll be riding my beard.
Moon Called is the novel that introduced Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson to the world and launched a #1 bestselling phenomenon…
Mercy Thompson is a shapeshifter, and while she was raised by werewolves, she can never be one of them, especially after the pack ran her off for having a forbidden love affair. So she’s turned her talent for fixing cars into a business and now runs a one-woman mechanic shop in the Tri-Cities area of Washington State.
But Mercy’s two worlds are colliding. A half-starved teenage boy arrives at her shop looking for work, only to reveal that he’s a newly changed werewolf—on the run and desperately trying to control his animal instincts. Mercy asks her neighbor Adam Hauptman, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, for assistance.
But Mercy’s act of kindness has unexpected consequences that leave her no choice but to seek help from those she once considered family—the werewolves who abandoned her…
