She betrayed her kind and was exiled from her realm. When Sierra is dumped in a snowy forest before an impending blizzard, that should be the end of the newly fallen angel.
Boone wanted isolation. He wanted peace. He wanted to be left the hell alone. But a last-minute trip before he’s stormed in for days turns up more than spare wood and a rabbit in his snare. He finds an unconscious and bloody woman.
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.
Boone’s not going to let his fallen angel go. But going on the run with Sierra means discovering a terrifying new world, one with monsters who aren’t much different than the ones who killed his family. He barely survived then. Will this time end up killing them both?

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.

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.

We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.
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.

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

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.
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 . . .
Alaska changed me.
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.
Wesley Gates is down on his luck. He’s drowning in debt. His demanding career isn’t letting up. And, to top it all off, after years of ignoring their failing marriage, his wife has had enough.
Heartbroken and in desperate need of a place to stay while he gives his wife the space she’s asked for, Wes is shocked when he runs into a familiar face from his past. As they catch up, Wes quickly learns his old classmate has an extra room and a non-existent social life. 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?
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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
I once met a man on a cold Halloween night. He dressed as a superhero, and I dressed in red. For one night, I was his break from reality, and he was the temporary fix for my broken heart.
Two years later, I was given the opportunity of a lifetime to become a senior editor at one of the biggest magazine companies in the world. The only catch? Nail an exclusive interview with New York’s finest bachelor: Connor Roe.
To the rest of the world he was becoming one of the wealthiest men in New York City. To me, he was simply my once upon a time superhero.

Broke, jobless, and stranded in Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day, I am forced to call my parents for a bailout. Again. A pampered princess and wannabe environmentalist, I know I’m a cliché and would do anything to change it. So when I meet Xander, a struggling photojournalist with absolutely nothing in common with my domineering, millionaire parents, I know just where to go next:
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. I didn’t mean to hide my identity, and I thought a desire to get out from under the weight of familial baggage was something we had in common. 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.
Wildman learned a long time ago that trust in others wasn’t healthy and might not lend itself to a long life. Blind trust gave a man false confidence and could get a man dead. His first experience in a club told him only a twist of fate would determine if that ending came quick—or slow. It took being brought into the Incoherent MC to overcome his beliefs, and he came to learn that his patch brothers of the IMC were his only allies. Then, in an instant, everything changed. A flash of lightning, shadows on a wall, blood on his fists—and a beautiful woman on her knees. His life would never be the same.
Justine LaPorte had been born MC royalty. Daughter of Justice Morgan, sister of Davis Mason, she thought she’d fought free long ago. Justine had focused on carving her own path, becoming the antithesis of everything any MC stood for—including her brother’s beloved Rebel Wayfarers—carrying her federal badge with pride. Then a federal investigation puts her in harm’s way, and she finds herself deeply embroiled in club politics when she’s rescued by an officer from Incoherent. The IMC is a southern club at odds with all of the organizations in her past. Just her luck, that man who did the rescuing? He has the potential to fulfill all her desires, in and out of bed.
The saying goes, you can never fully put your past behind you.
But that’s exactly what I’ve been trying to do. One night of chaos nine years ago changed everything for me. I lost my family. I lost my home. And I vowed never to let a man be the guiding force in my life again. That is until Kellin Shaw walks back into it. A sexy and intriguing stranger I barely knew; he has no idea how closely tied he is to my past all going wrong. A man so impossible to resist I don’t even know how to begin trying. But he’s got secrets of his own. A dangerous air about him that both thrills and terrifies me. If I were smart, I’d run from it all instead of allowing myself to be lured in deeper. What happens when you surrender yourself to someone who has the power to destroy you?
A second chance at love romantic suspense from the Salvation Society world.
It’s a common story. I’m sure you can guess how it goes.
Girl winds up in the wrong place at the wrong time. She witnesses four gods of beauty and brutality murder some poor sap, and she’s stupid enough to get caught.
Come on. You know what happens next.
You know they tracked her… me… down. I don’t need to tell you that they claimed me. Ripped me from my safe, perfect world and bound me in chains to their throne. All of that is obvious.
It’s the part where they corrupted me, dragged me into their world of death and destruction, made me theirs in every way I didn’t know was possible, and I became a soldier in a war that will bring all of Cinco City to its knees…
…that’s when it gets interesting.

She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud.
Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal.
At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him!
Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.
When life hits, it holds nothing back. Renzo Pagano knows just how hard life’s punch can slam against you and just how deep the wounds can embed themselves inside of your soul.
Ten years ago all Siobahn Doyle was normal. Then she wasn’t or at least her life wasn’t. Everything changed in an instant. Her beloved sister disappeared without a trace.
A stranger’s touch. A kiss. A sensation she’s never felt before. Siobahn takes a chance one night with a handsome American—a possibly too handsome American. Their actions, their attraction, it changes the course of their lives completely.
This hitman who hasn’t felt kindness’ touch since he was a boy falls for the innocent Siobahn. She is everything he knows he doesn’t deserve, and yet, he’s going to bind her to him and keep her for himself. That is… if he can keep her safe.
JACK I’m always down for a good time. I’m that guy. I love women. I love sex. And I love my life. Go big or go home, right? My father’s death is a constant reminder of why I like to keep it simple. Life is short. Emotional attachments make you weak. Grieving sucks. And I have no interest in caring deeply for anyone outside of my family. I’m not looking for complications. Monroe Buckley is a complication. She’s driven. She’s focused. And she’s my best friend’s little sister. 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.
