A Montanan rancher and a flamboyant figure skater find lust, then love, but can they find a life together? Unquestionably talented figure skater Matty Marcus is willing to sacrifice everything for his Olympic dream, but his lack of discipline cost him the gold once before. Now the pressure´s on. He needs a coach who can keep him in line, but top coaches don´t come cheap, and Matty can´t afford to stay in the game no matter how badly he wants to win. When a lucrative house-sitting gig brings him to rural Montana, Matty does his best to maintain his training regimen. Local residents turn out to be surprisingly tolerant of his flamboyant style, especially handsome young rancher Rob Lovely, who proves to be much more than a cowboy stereotype. Just as Matty requires a firm hand to perform his best on the ice, Rob shows him how strong he can be when he relinquishes control in the bedroom. With new-found self-assurance, he drives himself harder to go straight to the top. But competition has a timetable, and to achieve his Olympic dream, Matty will have to join his new coach in New York City, leaving Rob behind. Now he must face the ultimate test. Has he truly learned how to win - on and off the ice - during his training season? This book contains BDSM elements. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Ferraiuolo.

Susan Callisto is pushing 30 and taking stock. The man in her life, Massachusetts Police Lieutenant Michael Benedict, has unaccountably left her without a word of goodbye. Wounded but full of pride, Susan at first wonders why and then shrugs and decides to forget about him. Who needs a moody piece of work like Michael, anyway? Certainly not Susan who, transitioning from lawyer to political consultant, is far too busy to think about love - except on lonely summer nights. Her consulting firm caters to entry-level candidates, and late in the season, political novice Charles Renfrow begs Susan to help him run for mayor of Telford. But Renfrow is a scientist, not a politician, and his pockets are far too deep. Susan is tempted - Renfrow knows how to seduce - but her suspicions, if not her libido, are aroused. When a friend insists that Renfrow´s biotech company is dumping deadly toxic waste, Susan decides to find out the truth before committing herself. But instead of the truth, she finds a corpse, Renfrow´s gorgeous assistant, Torie Moran. The murder weapon is a microtome blade, razor sharp and accessible to anyone at Renfrow´s lab. After Torie´s murder, violence shadows Susan and people close to her. She is attacked in her driveway. An elderly client is beaten and left for dead. The young daughter of a client is abducted on her way to camp. All are the sticky strands of a web with her name on it, Susan fears. Then Renfrow himself turns up dead. Could he have been the master of all of this?The murders bring Michael Benedict back into Susan´s life, and when another of her clients is charged, she elbows her way into Michael´s investigation. Working on parallel tracks, Michael explores mountains while Susan unearths a truth about little Delia Baird. In the nick of time, Susan rescues Delia from the person she now reckons has killed Renfrow and his assistant. But she´s only half right. Susan must confront the real killer - and try to... 1.

Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason; he´s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won´t be unrealistic, either - which means romantic commitments are off the table. Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He´s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he´s facing yet another holiday season alone.
