Lion by Carolyn Faulkner
All Cecelia Franklin wanted out of this encounter was enough information to keep working on the novel she was writing, but she ended up getting a lot more than she bargained for.
She'd managed an incredible coup - she got a meeting with Nicolo Antonelli. They called him the lion, for his long, shoulder length hair - and his ruthless reputation.
Nico didn't have much use for reporters or journalists, but a fiction writer? And a beautiful one at that, who seemed to show signs that she might have some of the same...interests he had? How could he not take advantage of that?
Publisher's Disclaimer: A love story, completed by passion and discipline.
Centurion by Pasha Baker
Saxa, a sacred priestess of an old god in the forests of Europe, is unwittingly caught by a rugged centurion when the Roman army invades. Forced by the centurion, Gaius, to make a choice, she must find a way to either submit to the brutal reality of being his slave, or be sold to another.Gaius, a notorious centurion rising in rank in the Roman army, finds his match in the beautiful woman he saves during a siege of her temple. While having to keep the respect of his fearsome troops, he must figure out how to make the innocent and feisty woman obedient to his desires without destroying her trust. Saxa will need to decide which is more important: returning to the land, the people, and the sacred temple she knows, or relinquishing her will and heart to the man who would make her his slave. Can the pair of willful lovers find a common bond to unite them in their lust and hunger for each other?
