Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day I’d find him again. When my wish came true, it was nothing like I imagined. I couldn’t have known when I took the nanny position that it would be his children I looked after, that my new boss would be that boy I used to know, that boy who was now a man—a cold, lonely, detached man. The smile and laugh I had loved so much were gone, now distant memories. Every part of him was covered in a fresh pain. When he realized who I was, he made me promise to do my job and my job only. He made me promise not to try to get to know him, not to recall the memories I’d treasured all this time. But, sometimes, I saw the boy I’d once known in his stormy eyes. I saw the Greyson who smiled and laughed, who had stolen a young girl’s heart, and there was no doubt in my mind that this boy was worth fighting for. I was given a second chance with the one who’d left his mark on me. All I hoped was that somehow I’d leave a mark on his soul, too.

The Billionaire's Forbidden Little Sister
Max Monroe - 2019
Chief counsel for the prosecution, Caplin Hawkins, spoke candidly about the accusation. “Once thought of as a best friend to many—including myself—Theo Cruz has officially turned his back on human decency. He’s conniving and dishonest, and a habitual offender of Bro-Code Law 676. He’ll rue the day he forgot that you never—under any circumstances—get involved with your best friend’s little sister.” Fact: I haven’t actually been arrested or indicted. More important fact: I inadvertently messed up—big-time. Two strangers in a foreign country, we said hello. Hello turned into a kiss. A kiss turned into a rendezvous. And a rendezvous turned into more than I’d ever imagined. But her unruly golden curls and beautiful body hid an important detail—She’s my mouthiest billionaire best friend’s forbidden little sister. Fact: I knew not of my crimes. More important fact: I know now, but even though I know I’m playing with fire, there’s no way I’m stopping. I can’t leave her alone. Question: What do you do when you fall for your best friend’s little sister? More important question: How long can you keep it a secret before it all goes up in flames? Disclaimer: The Billionaire’s Forbidden Little Sister is a romantic comedy, NOT a taboo romance. We repeat: It is NOT about a billionaire canoodling with his own sister. However, if you find yourself wishing it were, we suggest switching around some names to make it so. We can’t guarantee it won’t be confusing at times, but who knows? It could be just what your doctor ordered.

Sex. Love. Marriage.
Shey Stahl - 2019
I’ll start with the first one. 1. Sex. For Kelly and me, that part was easy. Shhh. Don’t tell her dad. He’s always hated me. No need to give him further evidence. 2. Love. I knew the moment Kelly punched me in the ear for stealing her car that I loved her. Which also leads back to her dad hating me, but whatever. There’s a good reason behind the car stealing. If you ask her, probably not. If the sex and love work out, it usually ends in… drum roll, please…. You guessed it. 3. Marriage. Being married is ridiculously hard. Staying married, even harder. I can give you some advice, but you probably shouldn’t listen to me. I took advice from a porn star, took a tiny blue pill, and fell through a shower door. I’d like to never remember that night again. Somewhere along this terrifying journey of marriage and parenthood—my swimmers made five of the little sh*ts angels—our relationship as husband and wife fell apart. I can pinpoint the exact moment, as you’ll soon see, but that’s what leads me to this. Sex. Love. Marriage. And all the chaos in between. I’m not proud of what I resorted to at times and completely own my dumbass moments, but we’re friends, right? Proceed with caution.

Hitta's Tea Maker
Edwina Fort - 2019
It wasn’t hard enough to hurt, but it was hard enough to get my attention, not to mention the fact that he was crowding my space in a very threatening way.He was so strong, his hand still flat against my stomach was holding me against the wall while his other arm rested on the wall just above my head. He leaned in close, trapping me with his big stout body.Tears filled my eyes when his raged filled face got close to mine. I wanted to scream for help, but I was so terrified the only thing I could do was stand there shivering.“Where yo’ f***ing brother?” He growled.And…Oh, my goodness!The force of his words had my knees knocking, if his hand was not there on my stomach holding me in place, I would have slid to the ground.“I—I don’t know,” I cried. “Please don’t hurt me!”“He’s not here, boss,” someone said behind us.“It’s cool, go downstairs and wait for me.”Although I couldn't see anything past Hitta’s big body, I heard the other men as they filed out, leaving me alone with this…this…Force of nature!“Please don't hurt me…” I repeated through trembling lips as his gaze raked over my face. He moved back a few inches so that he could look down my body and I saw somethingchange in his eyes.I bit my lip wanting to cry out again when I realized I was standing there in nothing but my black thigh-high stockings, black panties, and my black halter sweater…his big warm palm was still pressed against my naked stomach.“Damn…” I heard him whisper as he took in my body.“What do you want?!” I yelled, not able to take it anymore.His heated gaze came back up to mine. “Yo’ crackhead a** brotha stole money from me yesterday.”I closed my eyes…No, Westly! No!Oh God! No!Out of all the people in the world to steal from.Please, God,…don't let this be true!When I opened my eyes again, he was biting his lip looking at me with that hungry gaze of his. I’ve never had a man look at me like that before. His gaze took its time taking in my body as his thumb rubbed against my soft stomach.“Please tell me that wasn’t your money?” I whined.“Where the f***is it?”My shoulders slumped. I give up… this was just too much.“I—I spent it.”I don’t know why I told him the truth. Maybe because I didn’t want him to kill my brother and I knew he wouldn’t kill me. As if to confirm my words, a deadly grin slowly spread across his face.“You spent my money, Teacup?”Although it was the last thing in the world that I wanted to do…I nodded. The look that came into his hard gaze as it once again took its time raking over my barely clad body was that of a conqueror. When his eyes settled on my trembling lips, there seemed to be some kind of hidden pull between us, his head came closer to mine and it looked for a moment as if he was going to kiss me.I held my breath, terrified, yet…and I really hate to admit this…excited.“Well now…” he muttered, his lips only inches from mine. “It looks like you… belong to me.From the Inside FlapWelcome warriors.

The only problem is, the woman whose touch he’s enjoying isn’t his wife as they’ve told everyone, but his partner. He’s undercover, trying to unmask a criminal, using this beautiful woman he considers a friend as bait. She’s beautiful and if she puts on one more bikini, he might just forget the lines they drew in the sand years before, and step into new territory. Why not? OX Cheryl O’Donnell has had a phone flirtation with this guy for years, one of those things that seems innocent enough on the surface, but can carry the weight of a true romance if given the right light. But things have changed, and she’s beginning to think this man isn’t who she’d always believed him to be. Ox Winn and his security firm, Caballo, have been hunting a serial killer for a year. He’s gotten close enough that the killer has hacked the firm’s computer system and has begun sabotaging their cases. Is it someone working in the firm? Is it someone they trust, someone they work side by side with each day? As Ox hunts his killer, he finds himself struggling with the guilt of placing the people he cares about most, his employees and his live in girlfriend, Kinsley, at risk. Has he finally found the one case that will be too much for him? Or will he once again outsmart the criminals and triumph over darkness? NOTE: This is the 2nd volume of Caballo Security and can be read as a standalone. However, to enjoy the series better, I highly recommend reading Volume 1 too :)

Maybe if I had been more focused on her case, I would have seen what was coming, could have prevented it before it was too late…

Park Avenue Player
Penelope Ward - 2019
Then the fender bender happened. The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth. Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about. Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident. Whoops! Yeah, so I didn’t get the position. The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids. So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance. To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece. At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed. But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.) We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened. This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right? Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs. Ours was one I didn’t see coming.

All Stars Fall
Rachel Van Dyken - 2019
Two words I can't really get out of my head. She left us. Three more words that make it that much worse. Three being another word I can't seem to wrap my mind around. Three kids under the age of six, and she left because she missed it. Because her dream had never been to have a family, no her dream had been to marry a rockstar and live the high life. Moving my recording studio to Seaside Oregon seems like the best idea in the world right now especially since Seaside Oregon has turned into the place for celebrities to stay and raise families in between touring and producing. It would be lucrative to make the move, but I'm doing it for my kids because they need normal, they deserve normal. And me? Well, I just need a break and help, that too. I need a sitter and fast. Someone who won't flip me off when I ask them to sign an Iron Clad NDA, someone who won't sell our pictures to the press, and most of all? Someone who looks absolutely nothing like my ex-wife. He's tall. That was my first instinct when I saw the notorious Trevor Wood, drummer for the rock band Adrenaline, in the local coffee shop. He ordered a tall black coffee which made me smirk, and five minutes later I somehow agreed to interview for a nanny position. I couldn't help it; the smaller one had gum stuck in her hair while the eldest was standing on his feet and asking where babies came from. He looked so pathetic, so damn sexy and pathetic that rather than be star-struck, I took pity. I knew though; I knew the minute I signed that NDA, the minute our fingers brushed and my body became insanely aware of how close he was—I was in dangerous territory, I just didn't know how dangerous until it was too late. Until I fell for the star and realized that no matter how high they are in the sky—they're still human and fall just as hard. The Kristen Proby Crossover Collection features a new novel by Kristen Proby and six by some of her favorite writers: Kristen Proby – Soaring with Fallon Sawyer Bennett – Wicked Force K.L.

The Elements Series Complete Box Set
Brittainy C. Cherry - 2019
“Stay away from him,” people said. “He’s cruel.” “He’s cold.” “He’s damaged.” It’s easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn’t do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him because it also lived inside of me. We were both empty. We were both looking for something else. Something more. We both wanted to put together the shattered pieces of our yesterdays. Then perhaps we could finally remember how to breathe. ___ THE FIRE BETWEEN HIGH & LO There once was a boy, and I loved him. Logan Francis Silverstone and I were complete opposites. I danced, and he stood still. He was quiet, while I ran my mouth. He struggled to find a smile, and I refused to frown. The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn't look away. We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong together, but always right. We were the stars that burned across the night sky, searching for a wish, praying for better tomorrows. Until the day I lost him. He threw us away with one hasty decision--a decision that changed us forever. There once was a boy, and I loved him. And for a few breaths, a few whispers, a few moments, I think he loved me, too. ___ THE SILENT WATERS Moments. Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday's hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow's promises. I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him. I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories. This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises. Of moments. ___ THE GRAVITY OF US Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another. I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed. Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another. Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend. Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever. Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.
