Strong, sexual edge — the perfect combination of fantasy and playfulness.
Navy SEAL Chad Hunter never dreamed he could be bought — until he gets to Eden. His assignment — to rescue a fellow SEAL from the hedonistic resort that caters to the most powerful women in North America. Only, once Chad finds his services "purchased" by sexy, serious Brittany Barrington, he discovers just how dangerous his mission really is....
Brittany Barrington isn't thrilled when she learns her mother has bought her a man. Even a sinfully delicious man like Chad... But when the sexy SEAL uses his special training to seduce her, launching a sensual attack on her, body and soul, Brittany can't hold out. Chad is her every fantasy in the flesh — and he's all hers! Only, the more time Brittany spends in Chad's arms, the more she realizes that she's the one who's become enslaved....
Susan Kearney used to light herself on fire four times a day. Now she does something really hot — she writes romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue.
While she hasn't performed her signature "fire" dive from a 10-meter platform in years, she started diving at age 10. By age 12, she'd won the New Jersey State Championship, and by college, she was a three-time All-American Diver.
While attending the University of Michigan, she earned a business degree that led to her diverse careers as, variously, a partner in a barter business, a real estate appraiser, a mover and renovator of houses, and a once- owner of three hair salons. Finally, in 1995, she sold her first book and became a full-time writer. She's currently plotting her way through her 30th novel.
Of all her careers, her favorite is wife and mother. She married her teenage sweetheart and lives with her husband, two children, and Boston terrier in sunny Florida. She now beats the heat not by diving into cold water, but with her new hobby — figure skating. Susan also enjoys writing science fiction, screenwriting, boating, and traveling to foreign countries.
