Nate Mathews is a murderer. Alfie doesn’t know the details of his crime, and he doesn’t want to. All he knows is Nate Mathews is evil, and his colleagues at Larkwood prison shudder at his name.
But Alfie has caught Nate’s eyes, and they start flirting in the early hours. It’s forbidden, terrifying, but arousing too. One whisper of ‘Freshman’ from Nate, and Alfie’s stomach flutters, and his pulse increases. Alfie knows if he reads Nate’s file his attraction to the criminal will turn to disgust, but he can’t bring himself to do it. He likes Nate. Nate makes him feel wanted, and that’s a first for Alfie.
When Nate escapes and Alfie is left behind as the fall guy, Alfie questions all that happened between them. Did Nate ever really care for him? Or was he just setting Alfie up for his escape?
No two criminals are alike, and Quinn knows this more than most. After months of stress and pleading, his study has been approved. His participants all reside under one roof: Greenwood Prison.
The men sitting opposite him have done awful things, but Quinn’s not there to judge; he’s there to work through a psychopath checklist.
He needs psychopaths for his study, and one participant fills him with more unease than the others.
Zane Black wears many faces, and Quinn has a hard time finding the real man behind the masks. He flirts, he manipulates, and boasts. He’s clever and takes control of their sessions. With all Quinn knows about psychopaths, he can’t stop his heart being seduced by this one.
When the study finishes, will Zane let Quinn go and move on, or will he leave Quinn with more questions?

Rory doesn’t like the Sebastian of the past—the murderer, or the Sebastian of the future—the plotter. He does like the Sebastian of the present. The one he shares his cell, his body, and possibly his heart with.
The line between what’s right and wrong, what’s good and bad, start to blur. But if Sebastian finds out who Rory is, he’s a dead man…
