The Man in the Black Suit by Sylvain Reynard

Acacia Santos excels at her job as concierge at the prestigious Hotel Victoire in Paris. When her superior, Marcel, is attacked in a supposed random mugging, she is tasked with serving one of the hotel’s most mysterious and attractive guests.

Nicholas Cassirer checks into the hotel under an assumed name every three months. Usually, he stays in the penthouse suite with a beautiful female companion but on this occasion, he arrives alone and is displeased in having to deal with someone new. A match of wits ensues as he tests Acacia’s expertise with a series of almost impossible demands. Her intelligence and creativity rise to the challenge, earning his respect.

They strike a tenuous accord until Acacia discovers a famous stolen painting in his suite, she contacts a former boyfriend who works for the elite BRB, a unit of French law enforcement that deals with art thefts.

Nicholas is questioned by police and released when it is revealed the painting is a reproduction. Irked with her behavior, Acacia’s supervisor demotes her threatening dismissal and the cancellation of her work permit.

But Acacia has already attracted Nicholas’s attention. Remorseful that she may lose her job on his account, he offers her a choice – she can wait until her supervisor dismisses her, or she can leave the city of lights behind and become his personal assistant.

Acacia initially refuses his offer, but Nicholas is persistent. He reveals himself as a man who quietly acquires stolen art in order to restore it to its rightful owners. Faced with mounting familial debts and the possibility of dismissal and deportation, she agrees to work for him.

Nicholas opens up a whole new world of beauty and intrigue to Acacia as they travel the globe. Soon the line between employer and assistant is blurred, and the two lonely people embark on a passionate relationship.

I'm a fan of this author's work. He did give us Professor Emerson! And now, we have the mysterious Nicholas Cassirer to love!

The Man in the Black Suit is sexy and full of mystery. It will keep you turning the pages to figure who are the bad guys and who's telling the truth. 

Acacia Santos prides herself as a professional concierge at the prestigious Hotel Victoire in Paris. And when a mysterious "man in the black suit" causes her trouble at to work, it coincides with mysterious and dangerous events that starts to happen to her. 

Nicholas Cassirer isn't happy to find that the concierge he usually deals with is not around, and when he has to deal with Acacia--he not only finds her beautiful and smart, but feels to protect her. 

Acacia is close to losing her job and immigration status in Paris, because of secrets beyond her control. And the only person she seems (thinks) she can trust is Nicholas. He offers her a deal that she's resistant to take.

Cowboy Up (Coming Home #3) by Harper Sloan

New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan returns with the third in her sultry, Western-set Coming Home series, in which the eldest Davis sibling Clay may have finally met his match—but will he be able to give up the solitary, quiet life he’s built in the name of love?

As the eldest of the Davis clan, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. Along with taking his job as head of the family business seriously, he is also determined to keep his brother and sister in line. Clay is known for being serious, silent, and stoic—completely in control of his life. And with the way he grew up, coupled with a disastrous end to the last relationship he was in, he’s just fine with his quiet, solitary life.

What he hadn’t counted on was Caroline Michaels. She’s the proverbial woman next door—the town next door, that is. Caroline hasn’t lived an easy life, but after escaping from an abusive relationship, she’s finally living for herself and no one else. The last thing the quirky, shy bookstore owner expected was a steamy one-night stand with Clay Davis.

When Caroline and Clay meet, the connection is instant, both falling into one heated night of passion before parting ways—both driven by their own reasons to deny what they clearly wish didn’t have to end. It isn’t until Caroline falls on hard times and Clay comes back into the picture that they realize just how impossible it will be to stay away from each other.

Will Clay be able to give up his rootless existence in favor of finally settling down? And, more important, will Caroline want him to?

Sweet Life (Sugar Rush, #5) by Nina Lane

He knows if she's been bad or good.

Amidst the sugarplums and mistletoe, fashion stylist Julia Bennett is every inch a scrooge. Known for her ice-queen ways, she's having a meltdown over a botched business deal and an upcoming milestone birthday. Add the pressure of forced holiday cheer, and she's ready to dive into the spiked eggnog and not come out until summer. 

Warren Stone, president and owner of the Sugar Rush Candy Company, is determined to make Julia slow down and enjoy the holidays. As her friend and confidante for thirteen years, he knows her better than anyone. But when decking the halls leads them to an explosive, sexy night, everything suddenly changes.

When Warren decides Julia is all he wants for Christmas, will she risk their longtime friendship for the gift of love?

            “Now step into my office.”
            Julia blinked at his hard tone, her gaze shifting to his closed office door. “I beg your pardon?”
            Warren opened the door. “In. Now.”
            Her features tightened with resistance just as the elevator doors opened and several employees emerged, their voices rising in chatter. Julia crossed the hallway in front of them, her shoulders rigid. He caught a whiff of Chanel No. 5 as she passed him.
            He entered the office behind her and closed the door, flicking the lock shut.
            “You are not to take out personal crap on my employees,” he said. “That’s not how I run this company.”
            Julia’s lips compressed. “Odd that you’ve never before questioned my treatment of your employees. And it wasn’t personal. She needed to know she’d screwed up.”
            “Announcing the holiday party early is not screwing up,” Warren replied evenly. “You’re pissed off because you’ve had a shitty week, you have too much on your plate, an old bucket list has thrown you off your game, and you don’t know what to do with the fact that we fucked the other night.”
            Two spots of color appeared on her cheeks. “I seem to recall that what I did with that fact was tell you it wasn’t going to happen again. After which you informed me in excellent caveman style that I was wrong. You seem to forget I’m never wrong.”
            About this, you are.
            He bit back the words. He hadn’t become the president of Sugar Rush by throwing his weight around. He knew how to bide his time, work his way into getting what he wanted. And damned if he didn’t want her more with every passing second.
            “Well?” Julia put her hands on her hips and glared at him. “Are we done here?”
            Under her make-up, purplish smudges shadowed her eyes. Brackets of tension lined her mouth. His jaw tightened.
            “You had a migraine yesterday,” he said.
            “What the fuck do you care?” Julia snapped.
            Warren’s hands flexed. He was used to her quick-fire cursing, all the more effective when delivered by a woman who looked like royalty, but he didn’t like being the recipient of her wrath.
            “I’m putting Mia Donovan in charge of the Sugar Rush holiday party,” he said.
            “You’re firing me?” Julia stared at him, her eyes widening. “Are you serious?”
            “Yes.” He steeled himself against her shock and the knowledge that he was hurting her. “You’ve planned it for the past ten years, and it’s time to hand it over to someone else.”
            “You don’t get to decide that.”
            “Yes, I do. Sugar Rush is my company. This is also the event where I’ll be announcing my retirement. You’re not going to plan it.”
            “Because I have too much on my plate?” Julia stopped in front of the windows, her arms crossed and her fiery gaze fixed on him. “Thanks for your concern, Daddy, but I assure you I can handle everything I take on.”
            “That’s why you’re such a success. It’s also why your headaches are getting worse.”
            “You are not my fucking doctor.”
            “Stop swearing.”
            She barked out a laugh. “You need to rethink this retirement thing, Warren. It’s making you soft.”
            Given the state of his dick, he was anything but soft.
            “If you won’t delegate your projects, I will,” he said.
            “Because you can’t stop being the boss, even if you think otherwise.” Julia paced angrily to the desk, her eyes flaring with blue ice. “Why are you retiring, Warren? Everyone knows you’re the power behind the throne, much as you’ve let the boys take all the glory. Three months—hell, one month from now when you have nothing to do and no one to order around, you’re going to wonder why you made such a bad decision.”
            Warren’s jaw clenched. He was sick of getting pushback from all sides. “I’ve been in business my entire life. I know what I’m doing.”
            “So do I, dammit,” Julia retorted. “I don’t need you looking out for me.”
            “I will always look out for you.”
            She came to a halt, her whole body stilling. By contrast, Warren’s heartbeat kicked up, sudden heat flooding his veins. Their gazes met across the room, a crackling electric current firing through the air.
            Julia took a breath, her breasts heaving beneath her jacket.
            “Goddamn you, Warren Stone,” she whispered.
            “I told you to stop swearing.” He advanced, his own breath increasing, his hands fisting and unfisting at his sides.
            Rebellion tightened her features. “And if I don’t?”
            “You sure you want to find out?”
            He closed the distance between them, his lust flaring like a match to dry leaves.
            What the fuck was going on with them?
            The question flared like a comet through his mind and died just as fast—because he didn’t care about the answer. His mind was consumed with the thought of tasting her red lips again, sweet like cherries, spicy like peppers. Her mouth could deliver an insult as sharp and searing as a blade, but he knew—had always known, even if he’d smothered the knowledge—that the sounds issuing from Julia Bennett’s mouth could also be smooth, hot murmurs of lust that rushed straight to his blood. Weakening him of all thought, all control, inciting him with the urge to—
            He grabbed her shoulders, hauling her soft, slender body against him. He’d always loved the contrast of Julia, the sharp-tongued, acidic queen and the relentlessly devoted aunt. The rigorous boss who shot orders like arrows, and the loyal friend who bought Hailey’s favorite peanut butter, sent care packages to Gavin Knight when he was deployed in Iraq, spent hours on end with Evan at the hospital.
            He stared down at her fine features, pale skin, and wide blue eyes that he’d seen almost every day of his life for the past thirteen years—and suddenly now it felt as if he were looking at her for the first time. Had he never noticed that tiny birthmark right beneath her left eye? Or the silver flecks in her irises, like falling snow? Or the perfect curve in her upper lip, tempting him to put his tongue there and—
            Oh, he’d noticed all right. He’d just tried to pretend he hadn’t.
            “What the hell am I going to do with you, Julia?” he muttered.
            “Fire me, apparently.” Her tone was bitter, her eyes blue fire.
            Her gaze flickered involuntarily to his mouth, her lips parting. He slipped his hand beneath her chin, lifting her face to his. His heart jackhammered. Her breath brushed against his mouth, the familiar scent of her—Chanel No. 5, lavender soap, pure Julia—suddenly exotic and tantalizing.
            “I’m going to let you go,” he said slowly, “and take two steps back. I want you to reach under your skirt and take your underwear off… if you’re wearing any.”


4 Sweet Stars

Who says the older you get, the less fun you are? Not Warren Stone and Julia Bennett. When these two weren't arguing, they were steamy up the pages! Yowza!

We've always known Julia Bennett as the cold, bitter aunt of the Stone family. But getting to know her and understanding where she is coming from in Sweet Life, made me love her. She's not that frigid woman who snaps at people. 

Warren Stone is ready for retirement. He wants his sons to finish taking over Sugar Rush.
