Pack your carry-on, buckle in and put those tray tables up. Flying is a soaring ride of desire and determination, of the relentlessness of grief and the power of love to heal – when it’s allowed to.
Love is not supposed to be the destination.
Stella flies standby every other weekend, finding the airport bar wherever she arrives and waiting for the right guy to come along. From businessmen to baggage handlers, each conquest brings a whole new meaning to the term layover. Every departure is the sweetest possible distraction from the life and memories she’s trying to forget.
When she meets the mysterious Matthew in Chicago, something about him tells Stella she’s not the only one running from the past. Their connection is instant, electric, volcanic – and for the first time, Stella wants a layover to turn into a roundtrip ticket.
Matthew and Stella have no trouble burning up the sheets, each passionate exchange leading the way to the next – but while their takeoff was perfect, turbulence constantly threatens their landing. With every step forward, Matthew seems to take two steps back. What began as a one-night stand has become so much more…and also so, so much less.
What secrets is Matthew hiding? How can Stella love a man who claims he wants her, but will not, in the end, actually take what she’s prepared to give? How long can one person love the other without being loved in return?
Love, lust, loss and rediscovery between two people who should never have fallen in love…or out of it.
HURT THE ONE YOU LOVE
She likes to watch.
Simone’s been spying on Elliott through her office window for a few months, delighting in vicariously dating the handsome businessman who likes it a little rough. Simone is a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to ask for it, and when she and Elliott end up in the same elevator, she makes sure to let him know she’s up…or down…for a little mutual fun.
Elliott, however, has always struggled with what he thinks of as his harsher desires. Rough hands don’t equal love, in his mind, and even though Simone tries to convince him otherwise, he’s resistant to giving in to what they both really want.
Will Elliott move beyond the past haunting him? Can Simone teach him the truth — that sometimes, it’s okay to hurt the one you love?
There is nothing crueler than the person who doesn’t want you enough to keep you, but who doesn’t love you enough to let you go.
Alice and Mick, hot young lovers with the whole world ahead of them…until it all went catastrophically awry.
It takes so little to lose so much.
When a not-so-chance meeting at an old friend’s party brings them back together, Alice must decide if the pleasure is worth the pain that will surely follow. After all, people, and relationships, can’t ever really change.
But if Alice does decide to let him back into her heart—and into her bed—will Mick be ready to show her the man that he’s become…and take a chance on love? Can Alice ever trust him again?
Is it possible to forgive the unforgivable?
Joe Wilder has never had a long-term romantic relationship. He’s a cheater, a rogue, a flirt, a womanizer. He ruins everything.
Until he meets Sadie.
They fall into an unorthodox friendship, meeting once a month on a park bench to share a lunch and stories of Joe’s sexual conquests, but soon Joe discovers that once a month is not enough. Relentless bachelorhood is not enough. All those women…not enough.
Yet Sadie has troubles of her own, and no matter what Joe wants, he can’t make himself what she needs. It will take personal tragedy for both of them to find their way to each other, but can a love that grew from such rocky soil ever be expected to bloom?
Or will he once again ruin it all, and leave it not only broken, but shattered?
