Blurry by Michelle Hercules

A Student Teacher, Age Gap Romance

Chiara Moretti. Angel or devil? When she rescued me from the side of the road, I thought she was the former. A gorgeous young woman with a difficult family, she had me wrapped around her finger in an instant.

We both agreed to share a no-strings-attached sexy weekend in Tuscany. I didn’t expect being unable to erase her from my mind.

Now she’s back in my life in the most complicated way. Chiara is here, within reach, watching me with her fiery eyes and devious mouth. Tempting me, torturing me.

But I can’t have her. I can’t even be near her, not when she’s one of my students, and all I want to do is fuck her until she forgets her own name.

 

The Rivals by Erin Swann

We all have a boy who was our first crush. I never expected to meet mine again.

Danielle:
Our families vacationed together for years. The summer I turned sixteen, hormones raged, and I developed a huge crush on Charlie Blakewell. It ended badly when my dad and his had a huge argument. Even talking to anyone in the rival family became a crime.

I grew up, and like a good girl, I joined the family firm and waited for my turn at an important assignment. As usual, my brother, John got tapped for the latest acquisition, but my turn would come.

When John got in an auto accident, my turn came earlier than expected. The surprise was when Dad declared we were doing a joint deal with the Blakewells. I would be working side by side with Charlie after all these years.

When things started going wrong, I had to question everything I thought I knew, and all the decisions I'd made. Was he the cause of all our problems, or the answer to my prayers?

Our time together would soon come to an end. If only the clock could be turned back.

Charlie:

I'd been spied on during the negotiations, and when Dad said we were changing our offer to a joint deal with the Wentworths I couldn't believe it. They were likely the ones behind the surveillance.

At first, when Danielle replaced her older brother John in the deal, I considered it good luck. Then things started going haywire. When busy days turned into heated nights, I had to decide if she'd been sent to distract me with her curves and that smile. Were we working toward the same goal, or were my hormones coloring my judgment?

Events soon forced a choice. But, how could I choose between her and my family?

Check out The Rivals today and see if love can find a way.

But when I find her elbow deep in a tub of ice cream with tears running down her face how can I turn down her proposition?

Suddenly a fake relationship becomes a fake marriage that we have to keep up all summer. Which is all fine and good except for the part where we both agreed not to let anything ‘real’ creep into our arrangement.

But then certain parts of me start to crave certain parts of her and things become even more complicated because we both have our own reasons for wanting what we have to remain make-believe only.

 

Beneath the Surface by Emily McIntire

Lily

We all have scars.
Mine are hidden beneath ink and smiles,
hard to see and easy to feel.
But the most painful ones are deeper.
Branded on my soul, reminding me of what I've lost.
I'm broken.
Sick.
Disturbed.
Then he shows up, and loves my jagged pieces.
But monsters linger long after they're gone,
and sometimes you can't outrun their shadows.
No matter how much you ache to forget.

Mason

We all have secrets.
Mine are hidden beneath ink and lies,
hard to find and easy to fake.
But the most painful ones are bigger.
Branded on my soul, reminding me of what I've lost.
I'm an enigma.
A mirage.
A liar.
Then I find her, and she loves my hidden pieces.
But history lingers long after you've gone,
and sometimes you can't outrun your past.
No matter how much you want to give her forever.

Kitty Kitty by Lani Lynn Vale

This is the story of a man falling in love with a woman.

A man that was supposed to be a role model, and a woman that was just barely twenty-one.

A man who should’ve known better, and a woman that didn’t know that she was destroying his career word by word, innocent touch by innocent touch, smile by smile, until it had already imploded.

The world collapses around Absinthe ‘Sin’ Solomon, and the only thing he can do is try not to take her down with him.

The moment the inevitable happens, and the gavel bangs signaling that he will spend the next nine years in prison for attempted murder, Sin tries to let go. But Blaise Mackenzie has never, not ever, been one to give up without a fight.

Her military career might be over, but her career as a prison guard is just about to get started.

And her favorite prisoner? A pissed-off older man, a drill sergeant dishonorably discharged from the Army that tells himself daily that the new ‘Kitty Kitty’ female prison guard is not for him.

After following him around for years, watching over him from afar in any way she can, Sin is released early. And the first person that he’s going to see? A stubborn little blonde-headed female that should’ve known better than to trust a man like him.

 

My Lucky #13 by Piper Rayne

Lucky.

The one adjective used to describe my entire hockey career. I prefer to call it hard work, at least I did until my game went to complete crap. I haven’t scored in eight games and my team owner is talking about trading me.

I’ve never believed in superstitions. Never needed one. I suppose I was “lucky” in that way. But now the best way to refer to me is desperate. I’d wear the same socks for an entire year just to be the high-scoring center I used to be.

Imagine my surprise when after spending New Year’s Eve with a woman, I score a hat trick in the next game—that’s three goals in one game for you non-hockey lovers. Now, I have to track her down and bribe her to do it again before every game. Get your mind out of the gutter, I’m not talking about it.

I find her and when I get to know her better, I end up spending more time thinking about her than my game, but she’s made it clear she wants no part of me. She’s going to learn that I didn’t become a professional hockey player without having to fight for what I want.

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.

All she can do now is conceal her secret and carry her guilt. Unfortunately, someone else knows exactly what she did.

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.

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.

I was only supposed to watch her. I was never supposed to talk to her, get to know her and crave her the way I did. I knew getting involved would causes problems, I knew falling for her was a mistake but I did it anyway. Damn the consequences.

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!
Well let me tell you:
1. He plays his music too loud and turns it up when I try to study
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.

Let them call me what they want, I know the truth. It all begins with the music, it follows me everywhere I go. Living as if every day is my last, I stand on the edge of life and death. 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.

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.

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+.

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

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?

A wedding chapel.

But when I wake up the next day, my matrimonial rebellion comes with an unpleasant surprise. My husband is no penniless globetrotter—Xander King is the son of a billionaire oil tycoon, and my parents couldn’t approve of the match more. Now the only thing that could shock them would be a quickie divorce…except my new husband has a proposition for me.

***

I take one look at Savvy and know I could spend the rest of my life with her. The feeling is mutual…until she figures out who I am.

But with Savvy just moments from proposing divorce, I offer her the one thing I’d been ready to walk away from:

A trust fund worth millions.

All Savvy has to do is stay married to me for a year and then she’ll get half—except I have no intention of letting her go after 365 days. I’ve spent a decade running from my father’s disapproval and my brothers’ successes. Now I’m willing to spend a lifetime convincing the woman I love to stay put by my side.

A man so impossible to resist I don’t even know how to begin trying.

True North by Aria Wyatt

Lena

I’m a woman in exile.

Well . . . okay, maybe that’s a little extreme. My boss called it a temporary leave of absence, right before he offered me a promotion on my way out the door.

What does one do with two weeks to kill and big life decisions to make? If you’re me, you hop a plane to Alaska for a solitary retreat.

I wanted silence and tranquility. The time and space to think. I wasn’t prepared for what I got: THE Wes Emerson.

The Australian actor is too gorgeous—and too irresistible—for his own good. An infuriating mix of cocky and charismatic, he’s made it his mission to antagonize me.

But no matter how much I want to believe his flirting is genuine, I’m not stupid. Let’s be real, Wes is way out of my league, and I’ll be an afterthought as soon as this vacation is over.

Wes

It was supposed to be a guys’ trip.

Just me and my best mates at a remote lodge in Alaska’s Far North. They promised a breather from the stifling attention. Nature. Seclusion. Two weeks with no cameras, no autographs, and definitely no women.

Tell that to the snarky New York nurse who snagged the resort’s last vacancy.
Lena Hamilton is the wildcard I never expected to be dealt.

She’s got a dirty mind and a smart mouth. She doesn’t just rattle my cage, she bites back, pushing buttons I didn’t know I had. Her soft heart and fiery spirit make me ache for things I’ve sworn off for years. Something more. Something deeper.

Lena doesn’t believe I truly want her, but when we find ourselves at the mercy of the Alaskan wilderness, she has no choice but to trust me.

 

Built to Fall by Julia Wolf

“You’re perfect for this job, Claire. He won’t want to sleep with you. You’re not his...type.”

Dominic Cantrell has been famous almost as long as I’ve been alive, but he remains a dark, volatile mystery.

I know why I was hired to handle Dominic’s PR while he’s on tour. It’s not because of my experience—I have next to none. It’s because I’m safe. Plain, quiet, shy, with more-than-ample curves, I won’t distract him.

What I didn’t count on was Dominic distracting me instead. I shouldn’t be so drawn to him. He’s too old for me, too closed-off, and definitely too angry, but I’ve been a good girl for far too long.

Why can’t I be just a little bit bad, especially when my rock star fantasy is so willing to corrupt me?

Our fling has an expiration date at the end of the tour. No strings, no feelings, no heartbreak when it’s over.

I tell myself I won’t fall. But I don’t know if I’m built that way.

FURY by Tracy Lorraine

I’m infuriated by my feelings for her...

They’ve held me captive all this time.

I might have been the one that walked away, but that doesn’t mean I’m not still haunted by her—by what I did to her.

But that’s the thing about ghosts… they always return when you least expect it.

My stepsister was an outlet for my pain, but everything has changed.

Now I’ve got nothing to lose.

If she thought I hated her the first time we met, then she’s about to get a shock.

The rage I felt didn’t compare to the fury that now consumes me.

I might be empty, but I’m going to show her how it feels by taking away everything she has... one painful piece at a time.

 

A Co-Worker’s Crush (The Rooftop Crew, #6) by Piper Rayne

Three tattoo guns.
Five motorcycle tires.
Countless T-shirts.

That’s what I lost before I realized nothing good comes from dating my co-workers.

Usually, I don’t have much self-control. So, the fact that Frankie Grant is a hot, talented tattoo artist means it’s a damn miracle she hasn’t already been in my bed. But nothing can happen between us because Frankie comes with Jolie, her young daughter, and a crap load of baggage from her ex. And those are two things I never entertain.

Anyone who knows me—the screwed up foster kid from the wrong side of the tracks—knows I’m not the guy you take home to meet your parents, let alone your kid. But I also know what it’s like not to have parents, so things get complicated when Jolie asks me to be her daddy.

I might as well just slash my own tires now.

Not happening.
But once we’re forced to spend time together…I only want more.
Too bad she’s the one woman who is off-limits.

MONROE
I don’t trust most people, and I have my reasons.
I’m passionate about my work, and I came here to do a job.
Not date the boss.
Getting hired at the top media company in the city is the break of my life.
But it means working for Jack Montgomery.
My one-time crush.
My brother’s best friend.
And the current thorn in my side.
He’s exactly what I want to avoid.
Yet he’s everywhere I turn. Even when he’s not there—he’s in my head.
He’s a magnet for attention.
A heartbreak just waiting to happen.
And my heart is something I fiercely protect. At all costs.
They say the heart wants what the heart wants...
But my heart isn’t allowed to make that decision anymore.
There’s too much to lose. 

 

Far Beyond Repair (Hearts & Horsepower, #3) by A.K. Evans

Scarlet Morgan knows all about happy endings. As a best-selling romance author, it’s her job to be an expert on the subject. It’s just too bad her own story doesn’t write so well.

Ryker Holt can build a car from the ground up. While there isn’t much the highly-skilled mechanic can’t fix when it comes to his profession, it’s Ryker’s personal life that’s still in pieces.

Scarlet thought she found forever in Ryker until, one day, he broke her heart and walked away.

Years later, filled with regret, Ryker wants Scarlet back. But he’s worried the damage is already done, and what they had between them is far beyond repair.

 

It’s Complicated by J.S. Cooper

A steamy and hilarious holiday treat from New York Times Bestseller J. S. Cooper

Santa baby, I’ve really been an awful bad girl...

If the city ever decides to put a sign on my front door, it will say, “Good Girl Gone Bad.” This year I am definitely on Santa’s naughty list and it’s not even my own fault. How was I supposed to know that when I asked for a boyfriend for Christmas, that my wish would be granted; with not one, but two suitors vying for my heart?

When one problem becomes two...
My two suitors are exact opposites. Lucas, the corporate hottie, wants me to spend Christmas Eve at his penthouse and Connor, the bad boy rockstar wants to take me to an isolated cabin on Christmas Day. I’ve agreed to both invitations. Hey, a girl has to explore her options.

The Christmas surprise I didn’t see coming...
And then everything went wrong. Because who couldn’t see this trainwreck coming; asides from me? Both guys wanted to see me on New Year's Eve: each one sliding a naughty note under my door promising copious amounts of spiced eggnog and an even spicier night. The only problem was they’d both invited me to the same party. Turns out they were connected in a way I never saw coming.

It’s complicated doesn’t even begin to express my dilemma. The only thing I know is that at midnight, the fireworks going off aren’t just going to be in the sky.

This isn’t a fairy tale. No. It’s a tale of woe as old as time. But even the tragic deserve a happily ever after, and I’m here to give it to you.

Charlotte

Sticking out like a preacher’s pregnant teenage daughter, I lift myself off the floor and fluff my unconventionally long black hair--a silent f*ck you to the sea of blond that surrounds me.

I live in a world of fraud. Everything is fake, plastic, and superficial. Nothing is what it seems and your worth is measured in dollar signs and social status.

Who am I?

Nothing but a prized possession.

A dress-up doll for one of the most powerful men in the country.

He may beat me, break me, and make me bleed. But he will never win.

Aiden

Tasked with protecting that which I despise, I struggle against turning into the monster I vowed I’d never become.

How can I do right by her when being near her sets my very soul on fire?

She’s a saint and temptress all in one.

Unable to separate one from the other, I begin to fall into her, letting her consume my every desire.

Will I survive this torture or will her love be my demise?
