Then they stole her from me.
When I woke up, all her color was gone.

My Unexpected Surprise by Piper Rayne
I never thought of myself as dad material.
Until my one-night stand showed up in my small Alaskan town five months pregnant.
But I don’t shy away from responsibility. First, because I’m a Greene and not to boast but we’re kind of a big deal in Sunrise Bay. Second, I’m the Sheriff.
I couldn’t have predicted how protective I’d become for the safety of her and my unborn baby to the point of asking her to move in with me and be my roommate.
Just when I think I have the situation under control, another surprise knocks me over, but it only spurs me to double down.
I’ll be the first to admit, I didn’t think it through. Somewhere between the dinners, the TV show binging, the doctor appointments, and me walking in on her naked, lines blurred.
In what feels like warp speed, my bachelor for life status is in jeopardy and I’m fighting for the most important thing of all—my family.
Waiting for You by Lea Coll
How can Ava resist her best friend’s brother when she's crushed on him since childhood?

Dirty blond hair. A bit of scruff across his chiseled jawline. And a body beneath those scrubs that makes me think all sorts of naughty things.
Alex seems to be utter perfection… and he barely notices I exist.
Or so I thought. Lately, everywhere I look he’s there. Renting a room in my bed and breakfast. Devouring my pastries. Wanting to talk every morning over coffee. Is it possible my lifelong crush finally sees me as more than his little sister’s best friend?

That is, until one night, he sees me in another man’s arms, and decides to claim me. Then there is nothing cold about him.
Callum becomes a man on fire for me, introverted, awkward, chubby Wren Anderson. He’s obsessive, possessive, and kind of stalker-y—and I like it...a little too much. The problem is, he still doesn’t know I’m the girl who walked away from him or the reason behind it, and I’m afraid when he finds out, I’ll be right back in the cold again.

Shakedown by Lani Lynn Vale
Wanted: someone to hand feed me Doritos so my hands don’t get orange. No weirdos.

When her brothers challenge her to create a dating profile, she makes up the most random biography she can think of. She never, not ever, thought she’d find anybody to respond. But she was sorely mistaken.

But only one profile catches her eye.

They are my girls. Always.

Each passing day, my chest tightens at the loss of them.
I never imagined I would discover the love of my life, only to lose her.

Until this ends, I must let go of my newfound selfishness and focus solely on Clementine.
Until this ends, I must forget about love. Temporarily.

In Silence She Screams by Amo Jones
Love will never die if it exists on the lips of death. I often thought about this while I was locked inside my Doll House in Patience. Groomed every second of every day, they made sure to cover all of the darkness lurking in my soul with the false guise of perfection. The soul is fickle. Naked to the public eye and only visible to the owner, a soul bleeds every time it’s put through pain. But when that’s hidden, it spreads. The trick is to protect it from reaching your brain.
It was too late for me.
Until I met them.
One was an Elite King.
One was a Brother of Kiznitch.
Both were liars.
I’m Lilith Patience, The Sorcerer of Death and daughter of one of the most feared organizations known to man. After being thrust into the notorious world of Midnight Mayhem, I found myself coiled around a past that I want to forget and a future that could destroy me. I love two men, and they love me as much as they love each other, but when the demons of my past tighten their grip around my throat, will I finally let them strip away the layers of perfection to get to my rotten, withered soul? Maybe.
Or maybe they’ll die trying.
My Sister’s Flirty Friend by Piper Rayne
I broke the cardinal rule and slept with my sister’s best friend.
Granted, I’d just found out that I was now a single father to a three-year-old little girl and was low on willpower.
It should also be noted that there’s been sexual tension between us for years. There’s no way it would be a surprise if anyone in our small town found out. That is if we were telling people, which we’re not.
We’re in agreement to keep our affair a secret, especially since neither one of us do relationships.
You’ve probably figured it out already, but things didn’t go as planned.
The Calamity by Jennifer Millikin
I’ve made a mess of things again. Not that anybody is surprised.
After I’m politely asked to withdraw from college for my antics, I return home to my family’s cattle ranch.
The sweeping views, the towering pine trees, and the whisper of the wind remind me I belong on this land. My heart is in the alpine air, my soul mixed into the soil.
All I’ve ever wanted is to run the ranch alongside my oldest brother, but my family refuses to see me as anything but a walking disaster.
If I’m going to show them what I’m capable of, I have to prove myself.
Lucky for me, I’m a Hayden through and through. I’ll dirty my hands in more ways than one.
That includes the man who showed up in town again after all these years. Sawyer Bennett. I’ve heard the stories about his family, and they don’t scare me. Our attraction is undeniable, and the best part? Sawyer looks at me with fresh eyes. When I’m with him, I get to be the woman I’m fighting to become.
And I’m learning just how much I want to be that woman.
But then I make the ultimate mistake: I utter the word perfect. I should've known better. There’s nowhere to go but down after that.
And down we go, until we hit rock bottom.
Sawyer unearths a long-buried secret, and challenges everything my brothers and I grew up believing.
Nobody is surprised I’ve brought disaster to our doorstep again, but it’s not over.
Because when it rains out on the ranch? It pours.

Falling in Reverse by Julia Wolf
Delicious Irish accent. Built like a slab of marble. Infuriatingly controlling.
My new bodyguard...
All I want is to rock hard with my band, The Seasons Change, and finally live my life exactly how I please. No one telling me what to do, no constraints, total freedom.
Too bad I’ve managed to piss someone off.
Crazed fan or bitter ex, it doesn’t really matter, since the result is the same. My wings are clipped and I’m strapped to a bodyguard with steamrolling tendencies and a disdain for celebrities.
Everyday I spend with Ronan is a battle. For control. For independence. And most unexpectedly, with my own willpower.
Because Ronan doesn’t just want to protect me. He wants me in his bed too, and ceding my control to Ronan is more tempting than I ever imagined.
But I’m Iris Adler, a fierce-to-my-bones rocker. If Ronan Walsh really wants all of me, he’d better be prepared for the fall.
Bad Decisions by Sonia Esperanza
Are bad decisions anything other than exactly what they proclaim to be?
For Lacey Johnson, a bad decision is not even in the realm of possibility in her world. There's no room for it. Not with her living her dream as a full-time nurse and not with her mind already controlling so much of her on a daily basis.
For Samuel Rivera, the bad decisions have come to a halt. Returning home from college to take over the family business for his dad, there is no room for anything but clearheaded choices.
Lacey and Samuel, two people who would have never met under different circumstances, meet a second time and once out of their city and into the one claiming itself to be made of sin, one dares the other to make a bad decision and surprising both of them, the other goes through with it.
The thing about decisions, though, no matter how small or big, no matter how good or bad, they change your life forever.

It turns out I might have a shot at getting drafted to play in the NFL, and nothing will distract me from that goal.
I didn’t count on Sadie Clarkson wrecking my plans. Our first meeting was explosive, to say the least. Now I can’t stop thinking about her sassy attitude or sexy mouth.
On top of being a distraction I don’t need, she’s also the coach’s daughter and off-limits.
But forbidden fruit always tastes better. She might cost me everything I’ve worked for, and yet, I’m willing to risk it all. My sanity. My heart. My soul.
