I am so excited that Bethany and Derek can finally make it onto your e-readers!

I hope you enjoy spending time with this couple, as much as I enjoyed writing them. They have a special spark and place in my heart. Grab Derek, I mean them, today from your favorite e-retailer.

The investigation draws them together, will office politics tear them apart?


For the past two years, my assistant Bethany Colombo has unknowingly been tormenting me.

Hiring Bethany to keep my private security company, Pride Security, running smoothly was both the best and worst thing I ever did. There is no question she’s the most reliable and hardworking employee I have. If only she wasn’t wrapped up in such a sweet-smelling, amazing assed, too young for me package.

I hate and crave, in equal measure, each morning when she bounces through the door.

Bethany is exactly what I need to grow my fledgling company and continue to provide for my employees. There’s no way I want to fuck that up…


My attraction to Derek Lion has only grown over the years. There’s just one problem... he’s my boss.

Part of Derek’s attraction is that he respects me as a person. Which means he will never act on his feelings.

As Derek and I work together, to find a missing jeweled mask, I am determined to prove to him that we are a perfect team inside and outside of the office.

I am hell bent on getting him to finally act on our mutual feelings…

Uncover the origins of Pride Security, as mentioned in the MacKay International series!
