Game Time #1 (a single dad romance)
He was supposed to look out for her, not kiss her senseless... ~ ~ ~ Au pair Uma is all kinds of wrong for single dad Zach. She is his son's nanny, a twenty-three-year-old virgin, and a guileless ingenue to boot. Zach knows all of that.
Then why can't he rein in his lust for her? If there is one man Uma should not be attracted to, it's the father of the adorable five-year-old in her charge. Once burned twice shy, Zach is the captain of a Paris water polo team and a wealthy entrepreneur who can have any woman he wants. No strings attached.
Small wonder he goes all out to shun Uma!
But when, with the help of a bottle of fine wine, Zach confesses all the dirty things he'd like to do to her, Uma astounds him by saying she wants that, too.
What's a man to do but oblige?
Besides, it's not like it's the end of the world. They're both sensible, level-headed adults. They'll just have a bit of fun and then go back to normal, as if nothing happened.
He remembers everything... except the first thirty years of his life. ~ ~ ~ Sports star-turned-coach Lucas Delaunay has no recollection of his past. Now the founder of a Paris water polo club, Lucas's ambition is to take his team to the European and World arenas.
Enter Isabelle Ferrand, a young publicist hired to land sponsors for the club. She used to be a friend. Just a friend, until she fell out with Lucas. But everyone--Isabelle included--insists he regarded her as a sister.
Not anymore, he doesn't.
Every night, he dreams of her naked and panting beneath him. Her taste, her smell, the way her breasts fill his palms... Every morning he wakes up rock hard, groping for her in his empty bed.
With desire spinning out of control, Lucas struggles with his own non-fraternizing policy. But he must know if he hungers for Isabelle because amnesia has changed his taste in women, or if there is something she isn't telling him.
And if she might be the key to unlocking his past.
What happens when the one you hate is the one you love? ~ ~ ~ In his acne-blighted teens, gullible Julien was led on, played, and publicly humiliated by callous Noemi. But time has been kind to Julien. Now he’s a heartthrob and formidable water polo defender who has no trouble with the ladies. That means, when they meet again, he can finally get revenge—by crushing her feelings.
Except… he hadn’t expected her to have any. Nor had he expected the bitter aftertaste of his sweet vengeance. As regret sinks in, Julien has to wonder if Noemi’s icy heart has melted since high school, and if his own armor-plated ticker is still vulnerable to her… While Julien questions the certainties he once held, Noemi sets out on her own quest for payback. Can these two battered souls find a way past their history and into each other’s future?
