The Dragon’s Promise by Marie Johnston

The only female I ever wanted was promised to my brother. But he found a woman, fell in love, and Venus is back on the market. Only she doesn’t want someone like me. A self-professed nerd, but worse, a male ten years younger than her. She’s stubborn, but I’m determined to win her over. Until she leaves.

The cost is high for a dragon shifter who’s single after a certain age. For a girl who grew up the laughingstock of her clan, mating Penn is the best way for history to repeat itself. So I flee to live my last days in peace. Only the persistent and devastatingly handsome male finds me. And when I start to melt, another female stakes her claim. And I have to decide if shifter politics are worth losing my life and my guy over.

 

Make Me Your Villain by Lani Lynn Vale

Book 2 of the Battle Crows MC with Shine and Iris.

Flaws—he has them.

Laws? He breaks them.

Dues? He’s paid them.

Scars? He bares them proudly.

Problems? He has one.

Soft Like Thunder by J. Wolf

Helen. What a sweet name for a girl who is anything but.

The first time I laid eyes on Theo Whitlock, I chased him and his frat boy friends with a bat.

I’m no white knight.

I’m broke. He’s rich. I destroyed his car. He chooses not to rat me out.

I was never supposed to go to college, but especially not one like Savage U, where only the wealthiest need apply. One might call this a lucky break, only I don’t feel so lucky with a drug dealer breathing down my neck, and a gangster threatening to burn my house down.

You have a face that could launch a thousand ships.

Theo and I don’t make sense, but being with him feels good, and I need more than my books and classes to distract me from the chaos and violence in my life.

I know you’re my good girl. Aren’t you, Helen? Tell me.

We’re casual. No complications. We have to be. I’m keeping secrets, and I have a feeling behind Theo Whitlock’s twinkly blue eyes is a whole world of darkness.

Do you think about me?

Too much…

Did I hurt you?

He will…if the other savages don’t get to me first.

 (Author’s note: This is a dark college romance that explores mature themes and dubious situations. Guaranteed: a badass heroine, bad guys, and a satisfying happily ever after.)

Silent Target by A.K. Evans

Shielded.

That’s what Sydney Ryan has done with the secrets of her past. Never wanting anyone to know the truth, Sydney has kept everything bottled inside.

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

And they’re out for revenge.

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.

 

Kickstart by J.S. Wood

I am a man destined to be in love.

I’ve got a whole lot of it to give and yet, no one to give it to.

That is, until I set eyes on a green-eyed beauty, sipping a beer in a bar named Dick’s.

Her entire being says don’t come near me with her wild sexy hair, her dirt splattered riding gear and her invisible middle finger.

But as I said, I am a man destined to be in love.

And I just set my sights on her.

Collateral Damage by A.K. Evans

Claimed.

That’s what Camille Bennett becomes when she crashes into the arms of Deacon Archer.

Camille didn’t have a plan when she attempted to fight off a random attacker, but responding well under pressure has never been her strong suit either. She was merely grateful someone who could handle the heat happened to be nearby.

Deacon doesn’t hesitate to spring into action when a frantic woman begs for his help. No sooner does he get her to safety when Deacon decides that Camille is the perfect woman for him.

If only she felt the same.

When Camille is attacked again, she has no choice but to turn to Deacon for help. He entertains her request, knowing full well he intends to make sure this never happens again.

Just as things start to heat up between them, Deacon’s temper begins to flare. But it’s hard to remain composed when it becomes evident that Camille’s attacks weren’t so random after all, and the woman Deacon is falling for could end up as collateral damage.
