Grand Lies by JC Hawke

They say love makes the world go around.
Mason Lowell set mine spinning.

One night.

Three kisses.

And the promise of more when morning came.

While the city of London slept, he made good on our promise. Only to cut me with his words as the sun broke.

I ran from him—I always ran. But Mason Lowell was different, and he wouldn’t let me go without a fight, finding my flaws and embedding himself into them.

My push was strong. I spent my whole life perfecting it. But his pull was unashamedly stronger, and the rope he bound around my heart was his to pull at will.

Love was shared—so much love. Promises were made—he broke every one. And then just when I think we are playing in the same key...

The music stops.

Working with a man as irresistible and charming as Vaughn, Sydney soon finds herself falling for him.

But when vengeance comes knocking, she wonders if remaining a silent target was a wise idea. Maybe some secrets are better off revealed at the start. Because now, Sydney may never get the chance to tell Vaughn the truth.

She’s my friend’s sister.
Warm. Light. Innocent.
That’s what I need to remember.
All I want is to fuel my angel’s desire.

Ellie
He calls me angel.
But I’m no one’s saving grace.
I hate what I am.
A victim.
I lost so much before Devil found me.
And I’m afraid of losing what’s left.

He saved me then. Now he’s teaching me to save myself.

Doin’ A Dime by Lani Lynn Vale

Live-in property & pet caretaker needed. Six-year minimum. Background check required. Generous compensation. Marriage of convenience required.

The moment that Wyett Villin read the ad on her local community’s page, she knew that it would be perfect. It didn’t matter how big the house was, what kinds of animals she had to take care of, or what the compensation was. She didn’t give a flip as long as it got her out of her childhood home and away from the person that she despised the most.

Only, she had no clue that by accepting the position, she would be agreeing to watch over the mini-mansion and two large dogs of Hunt McJimpsey, computer hacker extraordinaire, sexy nerd, and convicted felon of Souls Chapel, Texas.

She’d meant to make her life easier, not complicate it more.

***

Hunt McJimpsey was careful. He knew exactly what he was doing and practically planned every single step that he took to make sure that he always had his tracks covered.

But one single mistake costs him five years of his life, and if he’s going to go down for the crime, he might as well make it spectacular.

Three years into his prison sentence, he’s a changed man, and definitely not for the better.

He’s harder, angrier, and even more brilliant and conniving than before he went in.

He thinks that by keeping up with his dogs’ babysitter, his property caretaker, and reluctant wife, that he’s only doing his due diligence as a responsible person. Only, what starts out as curiosity for his property turns into genuine like for the woman that is caring for what means the most to him.

When an opportunity to get out of the hellhole known as prison arises and the only thing he has to do is join a motorcycle club and sign some of his free time away to help those less fortunate, he jumps at the chance.

Not only because he’s ready to get the hell out of prison, but because he’s ready to meet the woman that he’s been falling for, one visit a week, for the last three years.

Henry Gauthier: Bassist. Gorgeous. My brother’s best friend. And the man who destroyed my heart.

He’s also the man I grew to hate after a one-night stand went horribly wrong. I’ve spent the last three years successfully dodging him like a bullet.

Now, fresh out of a bad relationship and living in a new city, I finally feel like I’m starting to get myself together. And when an opportunity to produce Wild Minds’ newest album presents itself, I can’t help but jump at the chance of a lifetime.

Even if it comes with a caveat.

Three weeks in Hawaii, an impossible to meet deadline, and Henry Gauthier.

Eden Dawson: Spitfire. Stunning. My best friend’s sister. And the bane of my existence.

I’ll be the first to admit three years ago I messed up. I shouldn’t have touched her.

Sort of like now. Because my best friend, my bandmate, made me promise that when it comes to his baby sister, I keep my hands to myself.

Only a woman like her is impossible to resist. And before I know it, despite my best efforts, we’re doing all manner of dirty things to each other.

We vow this only a temporary fling. Promising that no matter what, love is off the table.

Now, I have to make sure two things don’t happen. One, I don’t break my promise to her. Two, her brother doesn’t find out I already broke the one I made to him.

But what happens when reality comes crashing toward my fantasy? Will Aria understand or will I lose her forever?

 

Hooking Up with Mr. Wrong by Ellouise Liston

College was supposed to be the start of something new ... and boy, was it!

I saw my college experience in my head: studying for my dream job in one of the big 5 publishing houses, hanging out with my friends, being there for my sister and enjoying my new dorm room ... but nothing would’ve prepared me for my new dorm neighbor.
Blue eyed, six foot pain in my butt!

You think I’m kidding? Ha!

2. He steals my favorite booth at the local diner
3. He purposefully chases away my dates
And what’s worse?
4. One drunken night of weakness leads me to getting knocked up by him.

Try having a baby with someone you hate, I dare you.

And now he’s found out the truth.

The dark secret I’ve been hiding, the one that’s been slowly poisoning me from the inside out.

The pain of the words falling from my lips, is nothing compared to the look of devastation in his eyes. Or the rage that follows.

Olivier by Brenda Rothert

Daphne

I knew who I was before Olivier Durand came along. Despite growing up among the privileged elite, I never cared about corporate ladders or dream weddings. I proudly wear the label of social justice warrior. Until a car accident changes everything overnight. A video goes viral: Chicago’s Hottest Bachelor, billionaire Olivier Durand pulling me from my burning car. When he sets his sights on me, the whole world is watching. He can chase after me all he wants, but my answer will be the same: I loathe the ultra-wealthy. Even when they’re handsome, persuasive and...I have to admit, charming. It’s a hell no from me, though. Until suddenly, I’m not sure I’m the woman I thought I was.

Olivier

Now I know how the players on the NHL team I own must feel. Relentlessly hounded. Once the video of me pulling a woman from her burning car goes viral, privacy becomes a thing of the past. For whatever reason, Twitter has collectively decided this woman and I should become a romantic thing. A hashtag combining my name with hers is trending daily. Absolute nonsense. But then I meet her, and realize Twitter got it right. Daphne Barrington is beautiful, funny, brilliant and sweet. Now I just have to convince her to date me. Easier said than done. She’s maddeningly stubborn, and my deep desire to be with her soon has me writing massive checks. Not for jewelry or cars, but to charities. Winning Daphne’s heart is going to cost me, and I’m not sure even I have enough money to do it.

 

Line of Fire by A.K. Evans

Protected.

That’s how Kaia Banks spent the better part of her childhood. Raised by an abusive father, Kaia relied on her older sister to keep her safe.

Unfortunately, no amount of training will prepare him for Kaia.

And he’ll stop at nothing to protect the woman who has stolen his heart.

Bride of the Emperor by Hayley Faiman

Drucilla Collins knows something is very wrong. All three of her sisters are missing. As the baby of the family, her sisters are always there for her—except now.

Where could they be? Three sisters who live across the country from one another don’t just disappear into thin air—do they? She doesn’t think that they could until it happens. They’re gone.

Landing on a strange beach, a warrior appears on a horse in what appears to be some foreign countryside. He is enormous, his body is gorgeous, but his face is hidden behind a metal helmet.

When he scoops her up from the ground, she is sure that all of this means that she will be seeing her sisters soon. They must be wherever this strange beast of a man is taking her.

Tiberius Quirinus is the newly crowned Emperor of Savona. Trained to be a warrior, he never wanted to take over the empire. His father was a tyrant. A man that he had to put down himself to save his people.

An ancient prophecy is well on its way to becoming fulfilled. Tiberius knows that he is the last piece of the puzzle, but there is a problem, he cannot love. The emotion does not exist inside of him, at least not romantically.

Two people who never imagined settling down. Marriage was nothing that either of them desired. Two people who take what they want, when they want.

Magic, witches, gods, and goddesses fill their new relationship and their world. Can they destroy their walls and fall in love, or will their world crumble before them?

Now everything around me is changing, dancing to music that’s not my own. My world is slowly falling apart because my friends are changing the rules.

Playing bodyguard to a star shouldn’t be too hard… unless that star has little respect for his life and demons in every closet. It doesn’t help that he’s focused on getting rid of me. Little does he know, he’s not getting rid of me until after I’ve made sure the people after him are gone.

Neither of us were prepared for the instant attractions that stirred between us. Yet we have two problems. One of us isn't who we say we are and we're both trying to run away from their past. Will we come together in harmony or fall apart in dissonance?

Quit Bein’ Ugly by Lani Lynn Vale

There’s a crush, and then there are the type of feelings that Croft Cruisie evokes from a person.

He’s everything that any straight woman would want: tall, handsome, charismatic, muscular, and sweet.

At least, Carmichael thought he was sweet, until he brings another woman to the gym she owns with her brother, on the night that’s to be their first date, and lets her know in a quick and painful, non-verbal way that her feelings are not reciprocated.

Fast forward six months, and she’s still trying to move on from the rejection.

It doesn’t help that the jerk moves in next door to her, and that she has to see him workout shirtless every single day.
How can a woman get over a silly crush when that silly crush won’t so much as give her room to breathe?

***

Croft doesn’t know what happened.

One day he was supposed to go on a date with the girl that wouldn’t leave his thoughts for even a second, and the next she’s avoiding him like the plague.

No matter how hard he tries—and admittedly, it isn’t all that hard due to the biggest case of his career taking over his life—he can’t get her to tell him what he did wrong. She refuses to give him a second chance.

At least, not until he’s nearly killed in front of the courthouse, that is.

The moment he sees his chance, he pounces. Or, more literally, he limps.

But the limping is what draws Carmichael in. The Southern charm that was instilled in him since birth will be what gets her to stay.

That’s his plan, anyway.

Funny thing about plans… they never seem to work out how you expect them to.

 

All the Ugly Things by Stacey Lynn

One moment. A single decision... an accident.

All of my hopes and dreams vanished.

Until I was given back my freedom and the opportunity to start over... doing whatever I could to survive in a world much different than the one I knew before.

I was working on my degree and waiting tables when my fate changed.
An older man with silver hair and a fancy suit walked in, looking like he wanted to save me.
He came for pie. But he offered me a job.

When I turned him down, he sent his son, Hudson.
The arrogant, sex on a stick wore me down.
I took the job.
I accepted his friendship.
And slowly, over time, I began to feel things for this man I knew I shouldn’t.

They gave me a home.
A family.
And then it was all ripped away.

Now nothing can erase all the ugly things.

The Gargoyle and the Gypsy by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a sexy, suspenseful contemporary romance with a dark fairy tale twist...

Deformed. Dangerous. Damned.
One night ripped my life away and left me a monster—the scarred gargoyle of a man who lived in the stained-glass shadows of a crumbling cathedral, selling my soul in order to seek vengeance on those who destroyed my life.
Until one day, the chimes I heard weren’t from the bell tower of Notre Dame, but from the bejeweled gypsy invading my space.

Though she swears her research is legitimate, her beauty shimmers with secrets. I can’t trust glittering eyes that aren’t repulsed by me, nor the tempting smile that is laden with lust. I can’t trust her.
So, I’ll watch and wait… and ignore how her sharp wit and bewitching charm scorch the shackles of my restraint and enchant me into her fire.

I’ll uncover the truth before she gets too close. Before she sees the broken man beneath the scarred beast. And before I give into her temptation.
She’s a threat to everything I’ve worked for—a threat to my cathedral and a threat to my revenge. And, most dangerous of all, a threat to my stone cold heart.

 

Forbidden C.E.O. by S.A. Clayton

It was only supposed to be one night.

I never expected to fall into bed with him and I never expected to crave his touch, his lips, or his voice.

He was everything I swore I never wanted; Filthy-rich, cocky, sexy as hell, and way too demanding. But after one night I knew if I didn’t leave I’d want more.

So much more.

So I left.

Leaving a note on his kitchen counter knowing that I would never see him again.

That is until I walked into my new job and met Luke Masters, my new boss, and CEO of Masters Publishing.

His eyes tell me he knows exactly who I am, and he wants to be more than just my boss.

Regret and Redemption by Sabrina Wagner

It was a one-night stand…sort of.

I’d never done the one-night stand thing before, but for once I broke my own rules. I threw caution to the wind and followed him home from the bar like a lost puppy. The two martinis I drank didn’t hurt either. I wanted to forget for one night. Forget my responsibilities as a single mom. I wanted to live life on the edge and explore the little bit of wild that existed inside me.
Chase made me feel beautiful and desired. The words he whispered in my ear were downright filthy and the way he touched me was exquisite.
Chase was sweet and funny and good-looking. There were possibilities.
But when our tryst ended abruptly in disappointment, I tucked my tail between my legs, and returned to my carefully planned life.
Women like me didn’t get to have men like him.
I thought I’d never see the sexy tattoo artist again, so when I found him talking to my six-year-old daughter, my heart dropped to the floor.

***

I’d never been able to say no to gorgeous women. No strings and no commitments. Casual sex kept me happy. My heart had nothing to do with it.
Once upon a time, I was in a serious, committed relationship. Until I messed it up. Since then, I continued with the revolving door of God’s most beautiful creatures.
And I’d been satisfied until an almost one-night stand had me wanting more.
Maggie was witty and smart and unbelievably sexy. We hadn’t even gotten down to the dirty deed before she ran off in a flurry.
She had a kid and there was no way I was ready for that. I barely functioned as an adult as it was and had no business being with a woman who had a daughter.
But Maggie was completely unforgettable. I couldn’t get the fiery redhead out of my mind.
So, when a chance encounter brought us back together, I knew I needed another taste. Maybe it was just the Thrill of the Chase or maybe it was more.
One thing was for sure… we had unfinished business.

This book contains mature themes, strong language, and sexual situations. It is intended for adult readers 18+.

 

His Royal Plan by Jodie Larson

What was meant to be the trip of a lifetime has devolved into utter heartbreak.

The man I thought I was falling in love with believes the worst of me, thanks in part to his scheming mother—the evil queen.

It seems as though her sole mission is to tear us apart, and she’s using every dirty trick in the book.

Lies, deceit, subterfuge…this isn’t what I signed up for. I don’t care about the title or the prestige.

All I want is Luke.

How fitting that another lie is what I’m told will save us. My prince says he has a plan in place. To be patient. To wait.

But I’m not sure my heart can take much more.

Sierra’s realm might have erased her existence, but that doesn’t mean she’s been forgotten by those who want to use her for their own means. Demons have found her, and sticking around puts Boone at risk, the one man who makes her think she might deserve more than shame.

Badly Behaved by Meagan Brandy

I’m a Monet.
A chameleon.

I’m whatever I must be.

And what I must be is a flawless daughter, a skilled socialite, and the perfect prize to the man who signed along the dotted line.

Not that I’m complaining.

I’m all for a contractual agreement, a quick and clean catapult into the next phase of rich girl life. One that takes little thought, less effort, and zero devotion.

It’s exactly what I want.
An impassive life.
A calculated future.

Or, it was until the lights went out, darkness took over, and I learned what it meant to live.
To feel.
To fall.

But everyone knows what thrives in the night burns in the light and flames were among us.
There is no escape.
No turning back.

No ending within my control.

My mother always says our choices determine our consequences.

Jailbait by Lani Lynn Vale

The first time I saw her was across the room at a bar. I had no idea at the time that she was only sixteen. All I knew was that she was beautiful, she was sending me do-me vibes from across the room, and I was fresh off a deployment where there’d been nobody but men for nine of the longest months of my life.

The second time that I saw her was at a court hearing that would decide how long I’d be sent to prison for. She was a cute little curly-haired blonde with wide, expressive eyes, a banging body, and the reason that I’d gone to prison in the first place.

The third time I saw her was through a glass divider of the prison visitation room as she waited for her stepfather, my lawyer, to tell me how sorry he was that he lost my case. Especially when I’d been the one to kill the man that was about to kill his daughter.

The last time, the time that I decided enough was enough, was when I saw her at my bar eight weeks after I’d been set free.

Unlucky for her, I’d stopped being a good guy about two seconds after those bars closed behind me twelve years ago. Now all that was left was a shell of a man that didn’t see the good in anything. Anything except for her.

 

My Almost Ex by Piper Rayne

In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.

Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.

She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.

My Almost Ex is a second chance romance between two childhood friends-to-lovers in Piper Rayne’s brand-new, small-town family series, The Greene Family.

Avah only wants self-sufficiency and security. She doesn’t know love, has never been in a relationship, and she’s okay with that. After all, it’s hard to give your heart to someone when your body is for sale to the highest bidder.

She knows herself, or at least she thought that she did until a man walks into her life that turns her entire world upside down.

When he sees Avah, he knows that she is not part of his plan, but you know what they say about best-laid plans...

He cannot have her.
She should not want him.
They know what they deserve and what they clearly do not.
They were wrecked by life a long time ago.

Two people who should not be drawn to one another. One is a murderer. The other an escort. They can’t stay away from one another. They know they shouldn't, but nothing can stop them.

The Touch of a Villain by Holly Renee

Young. Wealthy. Elite. Ruthless. The boys of Clermont Bay ruled over this town as if it was their kingdom.

And Beck Clermont controlled them all.

He was arrogant and conceited, and from the moment I met him, he had made up his mind about me.

Dangerously handsome and wickedly cruel, he had no intention of letting me spend my senior year under the radar.

The secrets of old money ran deep, and even though I barely knew them, the sins of my family had put a target on my back.

He was a hurricane, and I was unprepared for the storm.

His touch fatal. His impact irreparable.

There was no negotiation.

He stole my heart. Without warning, without permission.

He was the enemy, but that didn’t stop me from falling for The Touch of a Villain.

The last time I put myself in the spotlight, I was left in shambles.

Unfortunately, my carefully laid plans go to hell when I grab the attention of dark, forbidding, and brutally hot Sebastian Vega. He looks at me like he wants to kill my puppy or eat me alive. Quite possibly both.

The question is...what will I have to lose in order to win?

We were for keeps.
Until we blurred the line of love and friendship.

Temptation at the Lake by Erin Swann

It was to be two months of recuperation. My massage therapist was supposed to be a woman.

Jordan
Being a woman on the force was tough enough. Then, I caught a bullet in the leg while taking down the bad guy. The Captain pulled my badge. Internal Affairs will be fair, he said. Fat chance of that. To avoid the media, I packed up to recuperate in the place I remembered being the happiest: the small town of Clear Lake.

My doctor’s orders were two months of physical therapy before my next checkup. The stretching, massage, and exercise would be tough if I was going to get in shape to be back on the force by then.

I expected the sunshine and clean air away from the city to make it all bearable. What I didn’t count on was him. Casey Benson became the devil driving my therapy. I alternated between hating the man and being seduced by him.

His pull was magnetic, but I didn’t understand the danger of a fling with this devil.

When I get pulled into his orbit and the town feud, everything changes.

Casey
Life had settled down. People in town had mostly forgotten about my past. I was the go-to guy when they needed help with fitness goals or injuries. Even the feud between our family and the Pollocks had cooled off.

Jordan’s arrival however upset the balance in my life. It was my job to help her recover from her injuries. She needed the right therapy, including daily massages, and I was the man for the job. Was it my fault that she thought Casey was a woman’s name when she booked me?

She had a job to get back to, but until then we could forget our past problems in each other’s company. Every minute with her, every word, and every touch became a drug I couldn’t get enough of.

When my little sister re-ignited the feud between our families by dating Lee Pollock. The fights between my brother Waylon and young Pollock escalated from words to bruises, to blood. Then Lee went missing, and my family all became prime suspects.

Events soon force an impossible choice, but I have to find a way to save Jordan.

Check out Temptation at the Lake today and see if love can find a way.

The Clear Lake Series follows the backcountry Bensons of Clear Lake as they deal with a disappearance in town which shatters the tranquility of their community and puts them in the cross-hairs of the local police chief.

 

Private Property by Skye Warren

When I signed up for the nanny agency, I didn't expect a remote mansion on a windswept isle. Or a brooding billionaire who resents his new role.

His brother's death means he's now in charge of a moody seven year old girl. She's lashing out at the world, but I can handle her. I have to. I need the money to finish my college degree.

As long as I can avoid the boss who alternately mocks me and coaxes me to reveal my darkest secrets.

 

The Masks We Wear by Lee Jacquot

My mother tells me you can’t run from your past. You need to face it in order to appreciate the present and plan for the future. But I’d sell my soul not to deal with mine. It’s five foot four, has fake green eyes, and is the cause of all my torment.

When I knew her-when I loved her, she was just Liliana.

But now they call her Lily. The Queen of Emerald Falls.

She thinks she can bully me into silence. Make my life a living hell while keeping her prestigious status intact.

But a lot has changed in three years.

It’s time the Queen met her match.

The Masks We Wear is a full-length, interconnected standalone featuring strong language, explicit sexual scenes, abuse from a parental figure, and mature situations that may be considered triggers for some. Reader discretion is advised.

 

On His Six by Rachel Robinson

A continuation of Flash Bang (book 1) in the Summit Seduction SEAL Duet. Not a standalone.

Maeve Ahern

No one ever really starts over. They drag their overweight suitcase filled with a haunting, dead fiancé and unzip it in a new location. That’s just facts of life. At least, it’s my life. Sure, I moved to Colorado for a fresh start, but my past with Rexy looms in every corner light doesn’t touch.

My career as a pediatric physical therapist is the only thing I have left, and I pride myself on being the best in the field. It’s why I moved to Colorado to open my own practice. Men aren’t even on my radar, but then again, Turner isn’t a man, he’s my adorable, six-year-old patient. His father, though? He’s everything I swore off. A swaggering, muscle filled, creation similar to the one I lost.

He’s a Navy SEAL. A military man. A heartbreaking blunder I can’t make twice.

Unfortunately, whenever he steps into the room, all I see is light.

Lincoln Wilds

Single parenting isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s constant chaos, and the maddening sense of abandonment always lurks in the background. Turner’s mother left us a month after he was born—vanished into a dark, drug-fueled existence. My military career suffered during his infancy stage, but I’m finally working my way back to some semblance of normalcy.

I just got my own squad at the SEAL Team, when Turner falls off the monkey bars and shatters his leg. Just another hiccup in our complicated life. He needs a skilled physical therapist to help him walk again, but when I meet Maeve, something about her disorients me completely.

Maeve Ahern is a walking, talking flash bang.

 

Impassioned by Lea Coll

Mia
All I ever wanted was a family of my own.

Getting involved with Mason Arrington is a bad idea. Navy pilot, with a swagger, unlike any guy I’ve ever been attracted to before. He’s confident and aloof, but underneath that rough exterior, is someone who is struggling with so much more than meets the eye.

No matter how hard I try, I cannot seem to avoid him, or his family.

When he’s back from his deployment, the need to resist him grows even stronger than ever.

Even though Mason and his son look like everything I’ve ever wanted, I need to remember a family isn’t in the cards for me.

Mason
I need Mia Hatton.

I can’t ignore how beautiful she is, how outgoing, and caring. She’s the opposite of any woman I’ve been with. And there are half a dozen reasons why we probably shouldn’t be together.

Even when I’m flying fighter jets half a world away, I can forget about everything except Mia, who keeps inserting herself into my life with her messages, kind words, and updates from home. I need to detach but she won’t let me.

Can I convince her that she is worthy of love and this whole time she’s just been looking for that love in all the wrong places?

Impassioned is part of the Salvation Series World by Corinne Michaels. It's a cross-over between that series and Lea Coll's Annapolis Harbor Series.

 

When the Storm Breaks by Emery Rose

Our worlds never should have collided, but it seemed our paths were always destined to cross.

Brody McCallister was only supposed to be a means to an end. My golden ticket to get me closer to what I really needed—a way to make peace with what I’d done when I was eighteen, dirt poor, and left to fend for myself.

I only had six weeks in the middle of a hectic world tour to do it.
So the last thing I needed was to fall for a cocky cowboy. A walking contradiction with a charming grin, a dirty mouth, and a gift for healing wild and broken things.

His life was in Texas.
Mine was on the road.
He guarded his privacy fiercely.
I was constantly hounded by paparazzi.

Everyone warned me it could never work, that ultimately I’d be forced to choose—my music career or him.
I didn’t listen. I fell for him anyway.
Hook, line, and proverbial sinker.

But Brody was hiding secrets.
And when the storm finally broke, it destroyed everything in its wake ... including us.

 

Pit by Blue Saffire

Pit
If you’ve never called me one, you’ve never met me. I’m a bonafide member of the A**hole Club. Oh, we’ve earned the name. Which is why for the life of me I can’t understand why I’m putting everything on the line for this chick. She drives me crazy, she’s not mine, and she’s a little a**hole herself.
However, from the first night I saw her she’s been like a flashing light beckoning me to chase down danger. Yeah, I have a thing for Mayven “Skittles” Jennings. That’s probably why she knows to keep her tail away from me and I’ve kept my distance from her. That is until she needs my help.

Skittles
William “Pit” Pitman. Gah!
Pit is the last person I want to go to for help, but I need a savage for this task—a savage that’s as good behind a wheel as I am. Pit’s a jerk, but he’s my best option. I have three goals here. 1. Get to my cousin, Shawna, and save her life. 2. Make sure no one finds out what Shawna and I have gotten ourselves into. Especially not our parents—the good old mayor and my aunt that could be the next senator. 3. Don’t fall for the a**hole who storms in and takes control like he always does.

We’ve been seeing things all wrong. The truth changes everything. We can race against the clock or burn the mother*cker down and take what’s ours, including each other.

Love to Tempt You by J. Saman

Our band's stunning, untouched new assistant was completely off-limits. But that didn't stop me.
A car crash. A fake story at the hospital.
She warned me when I dragged her from the nightmare that was her life that she could very well destroy mine.
I didn't listen. I didn't care.
I brought her into my home. Into my life. Gave her a job.
My Pandora. A goddess amongst mortals who opened a jar and obliterated my world with her beautiful evils. But from the moment I saw her, I knew she had to be mine.
Consequences be damned.

In a life where getting by is barely a thing, I didn’t expect much.
Until I crashed into him. Literally.
Keith Dawson is a god amongst mortals. A Rockstar I’ve drooled over for longer than I can remember.
And now the hero of my darkest tales when a hero was the last thing I was looking for.
But a god this powerful always has a fatal flaw. Turns out, she died a long time ago. And there is no living up to the ghosts of his past, right?
So where does that leave us? Well, that’s where this story gets interesting.

 

Her Royal Fling by Jodie Larson

It was only supposed to be for a few days.

When Mr. Tall, Dark, and Sexy asks me to play tour guide to him and his friends for their bachelor getaway weekend, I’m helpless to resist. Then again, I’ve always been a sucker for an accent, piercing blue eyes, and a panty-melting grin.

Luke and I shared an immediate attraction. From the moment our eyes met, I was a goner. I would have done practically anything for a little more time with him.

Even wanting to be his three-day vacation fling.

Reckless? Maybe. Do I regret it? Not a chance – even if I can’t get him out of my head.

When a wedding invitation shows up at my door, it takes all of half a second to make up my mind to see the man I can’t stop thinking about.

Only I may be in over my head.

Royally.

Two twin souls share one dark power. The end of the world is around the corner. And there's only one heart to love and to save them.

Valya and Vadim have been owned by the Circus of Nightmares since their parents died as twins. They were days from breaking that contract when tragedy struck and both fell to their death. That should have been the end. A freedom they hadn't counted on.

They were wrong. Chaos needed a new host.
It found two.

 

North Star by Aria Wyatt

Lena

Alaska was a brutal hostess.

I spent three weeks lost in the wilderness with celebrity heartthrob, Wes Emerson. Sharing a tent with the Australian actor was one thing. Opening my heart? That was a totally different ballgame—and you guessed it—he won.

Wes is the embodiment of warmth, strength, and shelter. We forged a soul-deep connection in the face of peril and uncertainty.

Too bad our rescue was only the beginning.

When reality comes knocking, it hits hard. I’m an ordinary nurse from upstate New York. He’s a Hollywood A-lister who lives on a different continent. Our lifestyles are worlds apart.

What happens without Mother Nature to level the playing field?

Can our love withstand the noise, chaos, and media attention?

Wes and I conquered the Far North, but we discover wilderness can take on many forms . . .

Wes

Alaska changed me.

Irrevocably.

But it was Lena Hamilton who saved my life and transformed me into a better man.

Equal parts vulnerable and fierce, the snarky spitfire stole my heart within days of us meeting. She loves me for who I am—not what I can offer—and that’s something I’ve never had before. Lena is my true north, the woman I’ve been searching my whole life for. Now I need to prove my commitment across an ocean of differences.

The North Star shines brighter in darkness, but city lights and camera flashes have a way of drowning out the night sky. Sure, we were destined to spark and catch fire, but do we have what it takes to keep burning?

We survived the first leg of our journey, but it looks like Lena and I aren’t out of the woods yet.

 

Sweet Sacrifice by Sav R. Miller

Fiona

I learned long ago that not all heroes wear capes.

Some don masks and armor to hide their battle scars.

Others are irreparably broken.

Princes without kingdoms.

Kings without crowns.

I tried to fix the hero of my story.

But I’m afraid I’ve only made things worse.

Boyd

I learned long ago that all people bleed evil.

Some don harsh wit and beauty to hide their truths.

Others are inescapably lost.

Princesses without castles.

Queens without subjects.

I tried to slay the evil in my story.

But I’m afraid some demons are permanent.

He can’t help feeling grateful to spend time with someone who remembers who he was during their glory days, long before his life fell apart. So, when Elias offers to rent out his spare bedroom, it seems like the answer to all Wes’s problems. Wes takes his old friend up on the offer without hesitation.

Living with someone you barely know is better than living with a stranger… Isn’t it?

But soon, Wes realizes moving in with Elias may have been a mistake.
Between the wild mood swings, strange occurrences, and total disregard for his new roommate’s privacy, Wes begins to wonder if Elias will be his savior or his worst nightmare.

When his wife reveals devastating news that destroys the final bit of shaky ground Wes was standing on, his new roommate may be all he has left.

Maybe that’s what Elias wanted in the first place…
Or maybe it’s all in Wes’s head.

Elias invited him in…
Will Wes ever be able to leave?

 

Concede by Kathy Coopmans

For years, I pretended to be something I’m not. Drowning the beast living inside of me in copious amounts of alcohol and women. Not that I complained.

And then Victoria Hughes walks back into my life, and took me by surprise.

The woman stunning me clear out of my mind the minute my mouth touched hers.

After tragedy strikes and knocks her off her feet, I expected her to come to me, yet she didn’t. She pretended we’re nothing. But I see her. I’ve watched her, and she’s fighting grief while battling an all-consuming need for vengeance.

If anyone understands that, it’s me.

Deep down, she knows the only way to ease the pain is to give in to me and let justice bleed from her enemy’s veins.

And she will. I’m the type of man to make sure of it.

But there’s a problem. We have no idea who the enemy is. All we know is they want to destroy The Diamond Empire.

 

Got Your Six by J.S. Wood

Going home was definitely the last thing on my to-do list. I left my hometown with too many ends untied and now, years later, I had no idea how to fix any of it.

Leaving gave me the chance to breathe and gain perspective on my past. It gave me a chance to make a better life where I dedicated myself to helping others. But I hadn’t helped the ones that truly mattered, the ones I’d left behind.

It was time to start.

Back home, in the town I fought so hard to leave, I find myself scraping together apologies, mending mistakes, and attempting to move forward in the best way I know how.

It isn’t until I’m home that I find a piece of myself I didn’t even know was missing. A piece that had been so integral to my existence before I up and abandoned her.

It was time I made it right. It was time to make Delaney Torrez mine.

 

Conjugal Visits by Lani Lynn Vale

Don’t ever, ever, ever go near that boy. Not unless you want to be a single mother at seventeen. That boy is Bad with a capital B.

The words that my father spoke to me when it came to Trouper Aoki didn’t scare me like they probably should.

In fact, they only made me intrigued all the more.

When it came to Troup, there was just no resisting fate when it came to the two of us.

Even at eighteen, when we went our separate ways with the promise to come back to each other once we were done pursuing our careers, I knew he would always be it for me.

And color me surprised when eight years after making that pact with Trouper, we were once again reunited. Only this time in an undercover FBI investigation—me, the FBI officer, and Troup call sign ‘State’ as a military liaison.

Trouble always finds him. You’d do better to run far, far away.

Truer words had never been spoken.

From the time Troup was a young boy, he’d been in some kind of trouble.

So it only goes to show when he winds up in the FBI investigation with none other than Beckham Spurlock, his high school sweetheart, things are bound to go wrong.

Only, he has no idea how wrong until things go bad. Really, really bad.

All it takes is saving her by hurting another for him to see the wrong side of a jail cell.

To make matters worse, he has to live the next fifteen years in prison knowing that his son will grow up without him. And the woman he loves will likely move on to a man that isn’t so much trouble.

 

One Night Pact by J.S. Cooper

“One night. No strings attached. We do the kinkiest things we can think of and we never talk about them again.”

What do you say when your half-naked best friend approaches you with the craziest suggestion you’ve ever heard in your life? You certainly don’t entertain the idea. And you certainly don’t come up with a list of dos and don’ts for the night that is never going to happen.

My best friend, Harry Parker Huntington, wants us to make a one-night pact. He’s a playboy, hellbent on never settling down and I’m a tomboy ready to change my image. All of our lives, he’s been able to convince me to join in on disastrous schemes and plans that always seem to blow up in my face. But he says this one is foolproof.

We’ll be at his parents’ house for Christmas and as Harry says, “what happens at my parents’ house stays at my parents’ house.” I’m not sure it’s the best idea he’s ever had, but he always did have a way of making me say yes, to just about everything.

 

My Beautiful Neighbor by Piper Rayne

Who’s the mystery woman who just walked into my brewery?

I’m not the only one from my Alaskan small town asking themselves that question. But I’m positive, I’m the only one in Sunrise Bay undressing the pretty blonde in my head. Everything about her, from her make-up to her high heels says she’s a fish out of water.

Whispers and speculations run rampant until the secret of who she is gets uncovered. Then the rumor mill goes into overdrive when she announces she’s staying to open a bookstore in the building next to mine—throwing a big wrench into my plans to buy that empty building.

I quickly find myself in a tug-of-war since my business partner/brother is upset she’s ruined the opportunity to expand our business. I try to keep my distance, but I’ve got one sister with a gossip column on the local radio station and two meddling grandmas setting me up as a tour director.

And now I kind of like the idea of our new neighbor staying. But small-town life isn’t for the weak—time will tell if she has what it takes to be one of us.

 

Forever by Blue Saffire

Brick
I’m so much more than meets the eye. One world sees me as a successful businessman. Owen Mason, an upstanding pillar of the community. My brothers back home know the real me. Brick, a member of the Lost Souls MC. One of the last people you want to see come through your door.
I’m no good for her and nine years too old, but I’ve had a thing for Eva Kennedy for way longer than I’ll admit. One night is all it takes for me to lose focus and take what I’ve always wanted. I know I owe my pound of flesh for what I’ve done, but it’s done now and she’s mine. I don’t care about what anyone thinks and there isn’t a soul who’s going to stand in the way of what’s mine. I’ll put you to ground for coming between me and my woman.

Eva
I’ve been in love with Brick since I was a little girl, but he doesn’t know it. I didn’t think he knew I existed in the first place. However, I find out a lot during one of my epic Eva situations. Brick is sent to get me out. However, he does more than save me from a bathroom, he bursts the little bubble I live in. Now I don’t know which way is up from down.
Lost Souls are a different breed. We get elbows deep for ours, Eva’s about to learn how deep that is.

 

Bride of the Frontier by Hayley Faiman

Birdie Collins is on a mission to find her two missing sisters. They are, however, the most responsible of the Collins girls, and they’ve vanished. It isn’t like them to disappear, not answer phone calls, not call their mother regularly.

Her worries vanish just as instantly as her sisters did when one minute she’s driving in Arizona and the next she’s in the middle of the hot desert—alone, without her car anywhere in sight.

A mysterious man on a horse scoops her up and takes her to a house, where she promptly passes out.

When she awakens, she’s met with a man. A beautiful man. He looks like he’s been ripped from the pages of an Old West history book. He’s tall and lean, his hair is a bit too long, but those green eyes render her speechless.

Colton James has known love. He was married once, and his wife was cruelly taken from him as a spoil of war. Even as the King of the Frontier, he vows never to marry again, no matter how badly his country officials beg for him to.

An ancient prophecy that her sisters have already set into motion is only solidified as Birdie joins them in their world. Magic fills the skies as they resist and fall deeply for one another, fighting the eclectic pull that the gods have created inside of them.

Will love be enough for the couple? Can it forgive hurts from the past? Is what they share even real or merely a mirage from the gods? If they cannot find their way together, the entire country will assuredly be in peril.

 

Michigan for the Winter by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a heartwarming and hilarious standalone romantic comedy...

Ryan Finan needed a change of scene.
No more warmth. No more wooing. No more women.
Needing to get over what the last woman did to him, he’s fled to Michigan for the winter.

A secluded cabin, a wood stove, a bottle of scotch, and guaranteed solitude are all he needs… until Winna Madden recklessly collides into his path—and other parts of him. With her fresh beauty, captivating awkwardness, and far too much talk of freshly jerked meat, Ryan struggles to give his temporary neighbor a necessary cold shoulder.

Having lived in this neck of the woods all her life, Winna knows the gorgeous recluse isn’t prepared for a Michigan winter—nor for the kinds of harsh truths it brings. She’s determined to be a good neighbor—no matter how much he grouses.

As temperatures plunge, their walls tumble down faster than the snow. Soon, the only thing left is a wild desire burning between them.
But Ryan’s stay always had an expiration date. When it arrives, will he walk away? Or will the warmth he found with Winna tempt him to stay?
