We find her on a grey November day on Dartmoor, England.
I’m excavating a Bronze-Age cairn, expecting to find a burial urn and maybe some bronze tools if I’m really lucky. And then I see her fingers poking through the soil as if she’s trying to claw her way out of her grave. I’m an osteoarchaeologist, used to dealing with bones, and I know immediately she’s been in the ground for months rather than thousands of years.
Then I find a message in the grave that’s clearly meant for me.
It turns out the girl is the eighth victim of a serial killer, and now I’m convinced that the murderer knows me. It’s making me look at everyone in a different light – colleagues, family, and friends. My life is disintegrating around me, and I want to run. But if I do, I know I’ll never stop. It’s time to make a stand.
On my thirtieth birthday, I decide it’s time to make some changes.
Okay, it’s really only one change.
No more men.
Gone is the boyfriend who cheated on me with my best friend.
Gone are all the disastrous relationships that have left me dispirited and jaded.
I’m tired of giving my fragile heart to a man, only to have him trample all over it.
Instead, I’m going to concentrate on my career, which I love.
As a valuer of art, antiques, and jewelry, I’m passionate about people’s prized possessions.
My family owns a chain of toy stores that originated from one toy shop in London’s Regent Street, and I decide it’s time I saw where it all began.
It’s the trip of a lifetime, one a man can’t spoil, because there’s no way I’d get involved with a guy who lives on the other side of the world.
And then Callum walks into the London store.
Twelve years ago, we spent one sensational night together at a New Year’s Eve beach party in New Zealand.
I thought I’d never see him again. But here he is.
In the very muscular, very hot, and very British flesh.
He’s changed a lot since that night. He’s more serious, more ambitious, and a whole lot richer.
He wants one more night with me.
I can give him that without falling for him.
Without my life collapsing again around my ears.
Faith Hillman is in trouble. She’s writing an article on ways to spice up your love life for her popular blog, but she’s hit a major snag—she hasn’t experienced any of the Seven Sexy Sins on her list. Luckily, her brother’s best friend, Rusty Thorne, offers to help with her research.
Having had a crush on him since the age of twelve, Faith agrees, on the proviso that he signs a contract keeping their short-term relationship a secret. Her brother once decked him for kissing her on her eighteenth birthday, so Rusty’s happy to concur.
While they work their way through the wicked list, Rusty enjoys showing Faith all the sexual delights he can think of. But it’s only as the sins draw to a close that he understands that, where love is concerned, he’s the student and Faith’s the teacher.
He’s determined to keep to the terms of the contract, but when it comes to the crunch, will he be able to let her go?
Warning: Includes rebellious hero who enjoys inserting Tab A into Slots B, C, and even occasionally D. Also includes highly inappropriate use of a Mars Bar.
Previously published by Samhain Publishing under the title Seven Sexy Sins. This is the Director’s Cut edition – featuring previously unseen excerpts from Faith’s blog!

Even though he can’t step foot out of his house, Noah King’s sole purpose in life is to help people.
He created the Ark as a sanctuary for animals and people alike, and it’s not surprising that when I’m at my lowest ebb, he’s the one who rides in on his white horse and rescues me.
But now I’m in a terrible dilemma.
Since his wife died giving birth to their baby – who also died – Noah’s been a recluse.
The last thing he needs in his life is a woman who’s eight months pregnant, alone, and homeless.
Of course he’s going to want to help me.
I know I mustn’t mistake kindness and friendship for real love.
And I really don’t want to be one of life’s victims.
I want to get myself back on my feet and create a good life for the baby.
I don’t want to cause Noah pain by stirring up old memories. And I don’t want him to feel pity for me.
I know I should walk away.
But it’s strange how it’s only when someone shows you kindness that you realize how empty your life has been.
Oh God. I’m desperately in love with him. And now the baby is days away from coming, and I’ve literally nowhere to go.
