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.

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.

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

North Star by Aria Wyatt

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

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.

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.

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.

True North by Aria Wyatt

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

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.

I’ll Be Your Santa Tonight by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a hot holiday romcom that's the perfect blend of naughty and nice...

Holly Jolly hates Christmas - ironic, she knows.

But she can’t turn down the opportunity to create San Francisco’s legendary, life-size gingerbread house. Surrounded by tinsled trees and merry mistletoe, Holly steps into her own nightmare before Christmas. Especially when her boss turns out to be a very sexy Saint Nick.

Saint Nicholsen never expected his new pastry chef to hate his favorite holiday—or to be so alluring. And when one conversation makes it clear there’s more to her story than the gorgeous grinch is letting on, Saint decides to grant her every missed Christmas wish.

Unfortunately for him, Holly doesn’t trust the holiday that’s only proved disastrous. She’s already taken out Santa, overdosed on eggnog, and almost toppled the tree—and that’s only this year.

But somewhere between presents and tree trimming, the magic of their attraction begins to melt her candy-coated confidence and open her hurt-wrapped heart.

When Christmas Eve rolls around with more than a kiss from her Christmas list, Saint will be her Santa tonight, but come tomorrow, will Holly take the leap and hold onto the magic?

Author's Note: This grumpy grinch romcom is complete with an attempt on Santa’s life, an ornament that’s shaped very inappropriately, and some very steamy scenes of festive frolicking. Proceed with caution.

At her welcome home party her sister and best friend warn her to stay away, that he’s a player and commitmentphobic. That was the plan except she saw him everywhere — sometimes with other women. That only solidified that Gwen needed to avoid him.

To Maverick, Gwen was untouchable. Yes, she was gorgeous, he was very interested, but she was his boss’s daughter and he wasn’t going to go there no matter how much he wanted to.

A simple favor for her dad and she was in a van with him driving along the coast. When an accident traps them together things get real, quick. When they’re finally rescued they can’t seem to stay apart, no matter how hard they try.

Things can change in an instant — will they both give in to what they really want? Or deny their true feelings, losing the other forever.

Gravity (Wide Open, #2) by Sundae Leighton

💗 AVAILABLE NOW 💗

London

I had been broken into so many pieces that I didn’t think that anyone could put me back together again. When Mason Pelletier tried he only left me wanting more. To kiss him, have him spank me…all those bad things a man like him could do to a woman behind closed doors. What was supposed to be a one-night stand left us both yearning for something more.
I know that he isn’t going to like me when he finds out who I really am behind all the black eyeliner. That’s okay because I don’t like me either.
Mason claimed to love me so why did he hurt me so badly I can’t even breathe? How can I forgive someone for something so terrible?

Mason

I was no one’s knight in shining whatever. I enjoy my ladies fun, not clingy, but always a little crazy in the sack. I knew exactly who London Sullivan was when she came to me for a little wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am. She was persistent when I tried to turn her down so we had our fun, but when it doesn’t end there I felt the need to get her out from beneath my skin. She’s so much more than I bargained for. The plan was to keep her safe from harm. To save her from the ghost that continued to haunt her. Everything I did was to protect her until it’s too late. How can I make London realize that she rescued me?

Follow Me Darkly by Helen Hardt

💗 AVAILABLE NOW 💗

I’ve always been a control freak. But he makes me crave submission…

Working for a hotel heiress and social media influencer may not be my dream job, but at least it allows me time to do what I really love—take photographs. Pretty good for a wholesome farm girl from Kansas trying to make it in Boston. Life may not be easy working for a diva, but at least I know what to expect.

Until blue-collar billionaire Braden Black strides into the office. He’s beyond handsome and sexy, but also domineering with a definite hard edge. I’m not sure why he’s interested in me, but within a few weeks, he’s showing me a world I never knew existed.

He’s opened up a side of me I can only face in the dark, and it’s quickly becoming an obsession. How can I give up something this addictive—even if his secrets could ultimately destroy me?

Dirty Vegas Nights (The Trifecta, #2) by Logan Chance

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

My body’s made of iron.

My muscles are sculpted by God himself.

And my green eyes have been described as ‘lady magnets’ by the Vegas Tribune.

The Trifecta sensation is only the dirtiest male revue show Vegas has ever seen. We’ve been blazing the stage for a while and have gained quite the fan base. Women travel from across the country just to catch a glimpse of us.

I’ll let you in on a little secret...I hate every second of it.

It’s just not me.

I despise being viewed as a piece of meat.

When my new neighbor, Emma moves in next door, I hate that she sees me the same way.

But, when her and her daughter are in danger, a possessive need to protect her takes over.

The more I get to know Emma, the more I realize she’s more like me than I realize. And I won’t let her past stand in the way of our future.

James and Tricia should never have met… but they did.

For decades wealthy heir, James Wild, lived a magnificently messy playboy lifestyle — until he learned the legacy and reputation that goes with it could never be fully erased.

This was especially true for him when a forbidden encounter caused a betrayal which nearly lost him his family.
It was a hard lesson learned when James had to live with the harsh consequences because, although incidents may be forgiven, they were rarely completely forgotten.

Years later, James, Vice CEO of his family firm, has been primed to take over the business. With his past behind him, James is all grown up, and with his natural ability in business, he has proven his worth.

With his career on the up, all that was missing was a hot romance and the love of his life. The problem with this was there had only ever one woman who had truly lit the spark within him, sadly for James, that affair was over before it began. James had been falling in love, unfortunately for him, the gorgeous woman in question wasn’t.

Tricia Mattison was fiercely independent, a party girl, and not at all interested in settling down, but when James and Tricia’s paths kept crossing was this fate lending a hand?
