Iris Johansen Synopses: The Lady and the Unicorn by Iris Johansen is the first book in the Clanad series. The doctor has given Rafe Santine his orders: He must recuperate for two months in his coastal California mansion from the pneumonia that nearly killed him. Rafe struggles against boredom despite a retinue of mistresses to keep him occupied—until a stunning woman literally drops onto his estate. She expects a lot from him, but Rafe expects even more from her. He immediately realizes that he must have every aspect of the mysterious Janna. However, she will only provide him with her body, and for the first time in his life, Rafe finds that insufficient.

In order to save the threatened animals at the game warden’s wild animal reserve, Janna Cannon is willing to put everything on the line. Janna must use a ploy to persuade billionaire Santine to give the reserve the land it needs to keep the animals free now that the land they rely on has been taken away from them. In addition, in order for her to do so, she will need to sneak onto the man’s vast, highly guarded property. Santine, to Janna’s surprise, agrees to give her the land if she agrees to give him the land herself. And what starts out as a luxurious captivity quickly turns into an unexpected emotional awakening.

Stormy Vows is the first book in the Donovan Enterprises series by Iris Johansen. A private audition with a young Hollywood turk like Michael Donovan was the break of a lifetime for a struggling actress. Even though it cost her the role of a lifetime, Brenna Sloan refused to be intimidated by the temperamental and sensually overpowering filmmaker. Michael had no idea that Brenna was far stronger and more vulnerable than he did. What’s more, the secret she was concealing from him threatened to permanently separate them, but it would also bring them closer together with each encounter.

York, the Renegade by Iris Johansen is the first book in her Delaneys series. Sierra Smith doesn’t like to wake up in the middle of the night and in the middle of a storm to knock on someone’s door. But all she needs is the opportunity for her traveling troupe to perform in York Delaney’s town. then they’ll continue. So where did the stunning alpha rancher find out that Sierra needs protection? Sierra has always longed for a place to call home. That place can’t be Hell’s Bluff, no matter what emotions York brings back to her.

York has returned to the land to which he is connected beyond blood after seven years of wandering. Instead of following a child with big eyes, he ought to be calming his agitated spirit. However, Sierra awakens a long-forgotten hunger. He must devise a strategy to maintain her presence in his life. There will be retribution if she flees, taking his tightly guarded heart with her.
