Because You Are Mine: Part I
Because You Tempt Me
NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestselling Author Beth Kery, presents a red-hot romance like no otherâ€”where the rules of attraction are broken with that first electrifying touch. Meet Francesca and Ian. The fantasies of whatâ€™s to come beginâ€¦
It starts with that first look, when you know you have to have himâ€¦
Francesca Arno has been commissioned to create a grand centerpiece painting for the lobby of Ian Nobleâ€™s new skyscraper. Itâ€™s at a cocktail party in her honor that she first meets himâ€”and the attraction is immediate for Francesca. Itâ€™s also bewildering. Sheâ€™s not used to such a wholesale sexual response to a stranger. Enigmatic, darkly intense, with a commanding presence, Ian completely unnerves her. And she likes it.
For Ian, sheâ€™s the kind of woman he canâ€™t resistâ€”one that comes all too rarely: a true innocent. But he can sense in her a desire to open up, to experiment, to give herself to the fantasies of a man in control. The first kiss, the first caress, the first challenge for a woman who craves what sheâ€™s never hadâ€”a man who gets what he wants.

Because You Are Mine: Part II
Because I Could Not Resist
The red-hot romance between Ian and Francesca was ignited in Because You Are Mine Part Iâ€”that which comes with the first look, the first caress. Now comes the first act of defiance that takes them one step further into forbidden desire.
A heated argument between Francesca and Ian leaves the impetuous young woman alone again, and free to do whatever she chooses, and with whomever she desires. Sheâ€™s not about to answer to any one manâ€”especially Ian. Until he catches her. As he takes her to his penthouse, the tension is incendiary. One thing is clear for both of them. Francesca must be punished.
Outraged and unbearably excited, the naĂŻve Francesca loses whatever control she had. After all, Ian is too dominant a man to fight off. She did disobey him. She does deserve it. Francesca just never realized how much she wanted it. But when Ian discovers how naĂŻve Francesca really is, he wonders if taking advantage of such innocence is going too far, even for him.

Sheâ€™s willing to submit to desire, but having every move controlled is something she can never accept. Then Francesca begins to discover what it is that makes a man like Ian do the things he doesâ€¦

Because I Said So
How much can a woman endure? How much can a man get away with? Tantalizing questions. NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestselling author Beth Keryâ€™s Because You Are Mine dares to answer themâ€¦
An outing in Paris, a luxury car, a dangerous rain-slicked streetâ€”and Francesca eagerly takes the wheel sending her and Ian spinning deliriously out of control. The risk would frighten most women. Not Francesca. Itâ€™s arousing. A moment of le petit morte that steers her relationship with Ian into a daring new direction.
Scorched by the depths of Francescaâ€™s fresh, generous response to him, Ian begins to question his ability to keep his distance from the vibrant beauty. Sheâ€™s like fire in his blood, striking a cord in him unlike any other woman, and every time he touches her, his need for total possession only mountsâ€¦

Because You Torment Me

As far as Ianâ€™s concerned, Francescaâ€™s gone too far. Itâ€™s not just her flirtation with disaster, but her flagrant defiance and an agenda to torment him until heâ€™s seeing red with need and desire. He will see the willful young woman submit, but when she does, Ian finds himself losing all of his carefully guarded control and leaping into the consuming flames with the woman he canâ€™t live without.

And for a while, they do let goâ€¦
Itâ€™s intoxicating and itâ€™s exhilarating as they indulge themselves in the sweet, addictive fruit of passion.

Because I Am Yours
Secrets are exposed, love is challenged, and the future is compromised, when Francesca and Ian face an inevitable decision that will change their lives forever as NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestselling author Beth Keryâ€™s Because You Are Mine comes to a spellbinding conclusionâ€¦
From the moment Ian and Francesca first met, the attraction was mutualâ€”a purely, exquisitely physical charge that ignited between them. It couldnâ€™t be ignoredâ€”only indulged, evolving into a bond of pleasurable subjugation. But Francescaâ€™s open sensuality left her wanting more. Getting it from a man as mysterious and resolute as Ian was a challenge she never anticipated.
Francesca knows there’s only one way for them to move forward–to follow Ian to London and show him that she doesn’t want him to suffer alone. But when Ian’s past and inner torment is revealed, he experiences a nearly unbearable volcanic mix of emotions for the woman who has dared to love him, despite his inner demons. After exposing Francesca to the limits of his anguish, he wonders if he’s lost her forever. Can he bend enough to compromise to true intimacy…and something called love?
