With membership comes power as doors open to the United States’ most intelligent, wealthy and influential leaders. The only caveat? Members must agree to be placed in an arranged ménage marriage by the Grand Master. These unions are formed between three people the Grand Master believes can make a difference in the world. Join the society…
Trinity Masters, book 1
A dangerous Marine. A tech genius. A brilliant scientist.
When Carly Kenan joined the secretive Trinity Masters in college, she received entree to an exclusive club that gave her access to wealth and power. But there’s a price all members must pay–they accept an arranged marriage, between not two, but three people.
Ordered to return to the Trinity Master’s headquarters in Boston, Carly meets Marine Lance Glassco, a mathematician for DARPA, and Preston Kim, a dangerously intelligent chemist. Though on the surface they have nothing in common, it’s clear the Grand Master thinks that together the three of them can do something amazing. And that’s why he’s declared that Carly, Lance and Preston must marry.
Though the physical attraction is instantaneous and incendiary, Carly is unprepared for the emotional intensity of the menage relationship. Pushed beyond her limits, Carly runs from Lance and Preston. What she doesn’t understand is that she now belongs to them, body and soul…and they belong to her.
When Lance uncovers a dangerous crime at Preston’s company, Carly is caught in the crossfire and the struggling lovers are forced to move beyond desire to trust.
For the Trinity Masters, there is passion and power in three.
For the first time in their lives, they want the same thing. Each other.
Kellan James is unwinding at Score when he spots the last person he’d ever expect to find in his favorite bar. Sara Connelly—ER nurse, do-gooder, charitable crusader, and frequent pain in his ass. Both grew up privileged in swanky Southampton, but that’s where the similarities end. Kellan’s made it his mission to seek out life’s pleasures; Sara gains pleasure from lecturing him on his lifestyle. Kellan would never date someone like her. Ever.
But when Kellan discovers Sara’s been stood-up by an online date, something fierce and protective awakens inside of him. Typically, Kellan would enjoy teasing the jilted Sara, but something in her face sends him over to her table with a plan. He encourages her to take a walk on the wild side, one weekend of sin, no holds barred.
She accepts, but it quickly becomes apparent that one night isn’t enough. As the pull between them grows stronger, Kellan discovers it’s a very dangerous thing to say never.
“What the hell are you doing?”
He didn’t bother to reply. Instead, he shifted, twisting them until she was pushed against the door and caged between his arms. It was a dominant, I dare you to say no move. Something right out of an erotic romance novel.
It’s hot as shit.
She opened her mouth to repeat her question, but Kellan cut her off, his lips landing on hers in a hard kiss.
Sara was stunned, shocked…aroused.
“Say yes, Sara. Tell me you want this.” She’d never heard that tone in Kellan’s voice, determination laced with just a touch of desperation. It spoke to her.
She nodded, unable to reply. She was having trouble breathing.
Her acquiescence set him free. He pushed his knee between her legs, pressing against her heat as his lips took hers once more. His hands were tangled in her hair, his grip tight, sexy.
No man had ever taken such thorough and complete control of her. Yet Kellan had done it within seconds.
Sara reached for his shoulders, and for one brief moment, she considered shoving him away.
This is wrong? Right?
Then—fortunately—her brain engaged. Or maybe it disengaged. This was the single hottest kiss of her life. Why on earth would she stop?
Her tongue found his, and he groaned into her mouth, a hungry, almost feral sound. Passionate. The idea that she could make Kellan feel this way was heady, dizzying. Wonderful.
“Kellan,” she whispered when he pulled away briefly, granting them only a few seconds to suck in some much-needed air. She didn’t have a clue what she meant to say next, but he didn’t give her the chance to finish.
“You’re so fucking gorgeous, Sara.” Kellan bent his head and resumed the body-trembling, soul-shattering, earth-shaking kiss.
Before she could consider her actions, she began gyrating against his knee, thrusting almost subconsciously. She needed—wanted—so much more.
His fingers drifted from her hair to her face as his palms cupped her cheeks. He drew back a few inches until they were looking at each other. Neither of them spoke, yet Sara felt liked they said volumes. His expression mirrored her own feelings, and she took comfort in the knowledge that he was as blown away as she was.
“I…” Once again, she faltered.
What the hell am I supposed to say now?
She wanted him desperately, almost painfully. But this was Kellan, her cocky boss, her infuriating friend. She wasn’t supposed to want him. It was stupid to want him.
“Sara.” It was clear he didn’t intend to say more. He didn’t have to. Her name sounded like a prayer on his lips, and it sparked something inside of her, something animalistic and feral.
Oh, God. This is bad.
She grabbed his face and pulled him toward her, initiating the kiss as she thrust against his leg harder. Kellan was right. Two years was too fucking long.

As Kellan pulled out of the parking lot, she turned to face him.
He glanced over. “Second thoughts already?”
“Can you blame me?”
“No. That’s why I’m driving you to my house instead of having you follow me in your car. Less opportunity for escape.”
“So I’m going to be your captive for the weekend?”
Kellan winked. “I’m not going to pretend I don’t like the sound of that.”
“I suppose that falls under that bondage thing you’ve requested.”
He nodded, his eyes darkening, his expression growing serious. “Could also work as part of that role-playing you’re interested in. So, how far are you willing to go this weekend?”
Sara wasn’t sure how to respond. “That’s a loaded question.”
“You used the words wild and kinky. In my mind, that sounded a lot like carte blanche.”
She snickered. “Of course it did.”
A smart woman would put some sort of limitations on what they did, would attempt to rein Kellan in a little bit, but Sara didn’t want to do that. Now that she’d scaled the wall of should we or shouldn’t we, she was ready to take the grand tour.
Kellan took the ramp onto the highway. “You know, given what happened in the ladies’ room, I don’t think there’s much distance between us when it comes to sexual appetites.”
She considered her response to his touches. Part of her was afraid she’d never have another chance to experience everything Kellan was offering her as part of this deal. The safe, practical, boring men she seemed to attract didn’t bring the same level of excitement sexually that Kellan did.
But did she have the courage to put herself completely in his hands?
As she looked at his familiar, friendly face, she realized she did.
“I’ll go as far as you’re willing to take me.”

“When you joined the Trinity Masters, you made a vow. You pledged your lives to our cause and our way. The time has come for you to meet your partners, your lovers, your spouses.”
Silence settled over them. The medallion seemed to glow with extra light, a heavy symbol of exactly what he’d given up when he joined—there would be no traditional white picket fence in his future. He wouldn’t be one half of a pair, but one third of a trinity.
“When I call your name, stand and remove your robe. Eli Wexler.”
Eli was slow to rise. He was a big guy, and liked to take his time with everything. He needed those stolen moments as his legs straightened, lifting him to his full height. With the kind of single-minded focus that made him a good scholar, he compartmentalized everything they’d just learned, put it away so he could focus on this moment.
His hands were steady as he undid the hook-and-eye closures of the robe. Once it was open down the front from neck to ankle, Eli threw the hood back and shrugged out of the robe.
He’d elected to leave on a pair of black boxer briefs, but wore nothing else. The ambient cold of the stone room crept across his skin, wicked up his legs from where his bare feet touched the floor.
The figure in white stood and threw back her hood. Eli released the breath he’d been holding. She was beautiful. It was shallow of him to care about that, but some primal part of him was pleased. Her skin was creamy-pale, a lovely contrast to her dark hair and eyes. There was a sharpness to her gaze that made him think of a bird of prey—smart and dangerous. She shed her robe.
She was completely naked underneath. Eli turned his gaze back to the Grand Master. A bit ridiculous, considering that she was going to be his wife, but it felt rude to stare at her naked body. He’d seen enough to get an impression of trim, muscular limbs and pink-tipped breasts.
The last member of their trinity stood. The name was vaguely familiar to Eli, so he wondered if he’d met Jasper at one of the few events he’d bothered to attend, but when the man shed his robe, Eli didn’t recognize him.
Jasper was a hair over average height for a man, but at least three inches shorter than Eli’s own six feet two. He had even, regular features, brown hair and blue eyes. He looked like the archetype of a lawyer or businessman. Or he would have, if not for the scars that marred his chest and one arm.
Jasper was wearing boxers, but his were printed with bacon.
“You now belong to one another. Stand together.”
In measured steps, they came forward until they stood on the medallion.
“Hold out your right hands.”
The Grand Master removed the chain from her shoulders. She brought their hands together, Eli’s on the bottom, Jasper’s on top, with Irina’s in the middle.
The Grand Master wrapped the chain around and around their hands, binding them to one another.
“A trinity marriage isn’t easy, but if you love and trust one another, you will never be alone.”

No Other Way is releasing Oct. 4. It’s the next book in the Sparks in Texas series and in this story, Dr. Tyson Sparks, finds his happy ending with not just one best friend, but two! I’m putting an author warning on this. This is an unedited snippet. Manuscript is currently with my editor, so I haven’t polished it up yet.
When they stepped onto the dock, Harley stood and turned to face them. “Finally. I was starting to think you guys were going to chicken out.”
She didn’t move to take her clothes off and Tyson realized that while she’d thrown out the dare to go skinny-dipping, she was just as hesitant as they were. They were teetering of the edge of a cliff and it appeared they all cognizant of that fact and were hoping to come out of this unscathed.
“Leave your bra and panties on,” Caleb said.
She tilted her head curiously, but didn’t refuse.
Tyson decided to take the bull by the horns, stripping off his shirt and then dropping his lounge pants. He stood in front of her in just his boxers and there was no hiding his erection.
He groaned softly when her gaze lingered south and she licked her lips. “Wow,” she whispered, not bothering to pretend she wasn’t enjoying the view.
“Great,” Caleb muttered. “You’re as bad as Tyson.”
She laughed. “Is that what took you so long? Debating the wisdom of this?”
“And what was the verdict?”
“Apart from the fact we’re all screwed?” Caleb asked.
Harley’s grin grew. Tyson had to hand it to the woman. Despite the awkwardness of the situation, she still found the humor in it. “Yeah. Apart from that.”
“We both want to kiss you again. Just kiss you,” Caleb added, stressing that was all.
She appeared to ponder that and then she reached for the hem of her T-shirt. “Okay, but I should tell you now,” she added as she lifted her shirt. “I’m not wearing a bra. Or panties.”
Harley turned just as she was getting to the good part, glancing over her shoulder at them with a grin that half mischievous and half sexy-as-hell, so that they could only see her bare back. Walking toward the end of the dock, she dropped the boxers, giving them a too-brief view of her perfect ass before she dove into the water.
He and Caleb stood there gaping like a couple fish out of water. Then Tyson shrugged, dropped his own boxers, and walked to the edge.
“Look on the bright side, Cal. That water’s going to be frigid. Might help.”
Tyson heard Caleb mutter, “it’s not going to help,” just before he dove in next to Harley.
