Tori Carrington An innocent proposal. A friendship betrayed. One-night-only anonymous sex with a stranger? Seems too wanton, even for Nina Leonard. Until it's insinuated that the mystery man might be one of her business partners - two guys she adores who also happen to be complete hotties.
Out comes the blindfold, and Nina has the steamiest night of her life. Now she's got to have more - only, no one's fessing up.
One of her two best friends rocked her world that night. But which one was it?
Tori Carrington Sofie's getting her feet under her as a PI and business is booming. So much so that she's hired her layabout cousin and a one-time petty criminal as "boys of all work". Okay, so her reputation's become, well, complicated - everyone in Astoria, Queens, knows that from time to time she shoots one of her own clients - but on the whole, she's getting a lot more respect than when she was best known for leaving her groom at the altar. In fact, Sofie's just landed her first big criminal case - one so big that it's on the news nearly every night. A young man from the wrong side of the tracks has been accused of murdering his beautiful, wealthy girlfriend. His alibi's a mess and his attitude's worse. But his sister believes he's innocent, and soon, so does Sofie. Now she just has to prove it - or find the real killer.
If only she didn't have a host of distractions: a body disappears from her aunt Sotiria's funeral home, Sofie sees her Dino keeping company with her sister Efi, and Jake Porter returns, somehow connected to the missing body and, as always, making Sofie go weak in the knees. And since Dino's otherwise occupied...
Meanwhile, young Johnny is facing a life sentence. And Sofie Metropolis, budding PI, is his only hope.
Tori Carrington He wants her caught. She just wants him.
Ex-army ranger Jonathon Reece needs to prove himself with his new job at Lazarus Security. And his first big assignment is to hunt down a fugitive wanted for murder. But his cut-and-dried case suddenly gets a lot juicier - and way more complicated - when the fugitive in question is a scorchin'-hot gal who won't take "you're under arrest" for an answer!
Normally, Mara Findlay would be delighted to have a nice piece of man like Jon hot on her tail - on the road and in bed! But having been framed for murder and eluding authorities (even sexy ones!) is taking its toll. Worse still, it looks like the only way out of this mess is by teaming up with the one man determined to haul her in. Unless she can exploit his one weakness...her!
1) Caleb Payne. Calculating entrepreneur. Avowed bachelor. He takes what he wants--in the boardroom and the bedroom!
2) Bryna Metaxas. Emotionally invested in her family's business. About to enter into a business deal with Caleb that will shock her on every level...And she'll love every minute of it.
Dangerously hot, filled with steamy sexual tension and cold business machinations.
The Turning Point:
Caleb makes a critical error. And in the fallout, he realizes that he's lost far more than he gained--he's given up his one chance at happiness. He'd have to pull off the coup of a lifetime to earn Bryna's trust--and love--again.
Tori Carrington After shooting one of her own clients and accidentally getting involved with the mob, Sofie Metropolis is finally starting to get the hang of the PI business. She's just landed her first high-profile case. A local Astoria girl has made good by marrying an up-and-coming South American pitcher who has just been signed by the New York Mets. Reni Venezuela's good looks and charm, not to mention his fastball and his slider, are bringing hordes of fans to Shea Stadium. But despite his stellar record, Reni's wife insists something's wrong with her husband. Can Sofie find out what?
Meanwhile, romance and all its complications are heating up for Sofie. But while the Mets steamroll toward the pennant race, Sofie must tail Reni and hope that whatever she discovers (steroids or an affair?) won't cost her beloved Mets the Series.
Tori Carrington Sofie's a young Greek American woman living in Queens. If you'd asked her a few months ago what she'd be doing now, she'd have replied, "I'm going to be married to a wonderful guy and working at my father's, or maybe my grandfather's, Greek restaurant."
That was before Sofie caught the groom in a compromising position with her maid of honor just before the wedding. Before she punched the priest who tried to get her to marry the cad anyway. Before she chucked her engagement ring into the garbage disposal. Before she became a junior detective for her uncle's detective agency.
Now Sofie's searching for a runaway wife possibly wanted by the FBI and for a vicious neighborhood mutt. And she's got the hots for Jake Porter, an Australian mystery man that Sofie suspects is either a bounty hunter or a federal agent.
Tori Carrington A Sofie Metropolis Paranormal Mystery - Sofie Metropolis is back and in the deep end of the coffee pot when she's retained by the neighborhood vampire to prove he isn’t responsible for a recent string of grisly murders, and her mother talks her into looking for a missing woman neither of them knows, but Thalia has adopted in absentia nonetheless. And if her plate isn’t full enough, things heat up on the romantic front when ‘bounty hunter’ Jake Porter and yummy Greek baker Dino both decide to vie for her undivided attention. What’s a good Greek girl with a gun to do?
Tori Carrington Some girls just won't take no for an answer…
Security expert Jason Savage lives for his job. Nobody gets past him. No one. So why is he so hot under the collar (and then some) about his latest case? Jordan Cosby is just an assignment—albeit a sexy, damn near irresistible one…
In two weeks, Jordan takes the witness stand. Until then, she's confined to her apartment for her safety. Fortunately, Jason is a substantial distraction. And since Jordan's a woman who always gets her own way, she knows it's just a matter of time before Jason comes to her bed—and finds out just how good her way really is…
Tori Carrington Sofie Metropolis is the newest PI on the mean streets of Astoria, Queens. She's known for her trademark frappes and her itchy trigger finger.
Uncle Tolly was acting odd right before he disappeared. The proof? The brand-new Mercedes Tolly just bought. And the business' books, which show that Uncle Tolly was laundering more than just clothes. Which is where the mob comes in, in the darkly handsome figure of Tony DiPiazza.
Tony's very taken with Sofie. Too bad she won't back off the money-laundering and kidnapping (or is it murder?) investigation. Too bad she's too busy to notice the men in her life because she's being attacked by a malevolent dry-cleaning bag, bailing Aglaia out of jail, and spying on her own father. Sofie's quest for the truth gets her into hot water - and a pair of cement overshoes. It's not her best look.
