Glenna Sinclair - 2016
    No cliffhangers. BOOK 1 I went to his sister because that’s what he told me to do. But when his brother, Cole, accused me of being a gold digger, I knew I couldn’t trust them. I didn’t realize she would send Cole to watch over me. Or that he would carry me out of my trailer when he saw how bad it really was. Who was he to tell me where I could live or how I managed my own business? I mean, he might be my kid’s uncle, but I’d been on my own for a long time. I didn’t need his help. And I really didn’t need the confusion that rushed through me whenever he stood too close. BOOK 2 I do the best I can. I have to make a living, right? And this industry…it pays very well. And when you’re on the streets with a kid to take care of, you do what you have to do. But I took pains to hide my face in the movies I acted in. For seven years, I’d kept my identity anonymous. But someone figured it out and now I have this big, silent man following me around, demanding I do everything he says. BOOK 3 I didn’t want him in my life, didn’t want him anywhere near me, but on the worst day of my life he comes walking down the street, a gun in his hand, and throws me over his shoulder like some sort of Neanderthal taking possession of what was his. But I wasn’t his anymore. That ended when I caught him kissing my sister in one of the most romantic cities in the world. My sister, who’d just been killed saying his name. How did I know he didn’t kill her? How did I know that he didn’t intend to kill me? BOOK 4 I’m a nurse. I help people. I’ve done it all my life, even before I embraced my profession. So when I heard Blake Zimmerman explaining how he and his wife were desperate to have a baby, I couldn’t help but offer myself. I’d never thought about being a surrogate before, but I wanted to help and it wasn’t like I had any romantic prospects at that moment. Hell, I hadn’t had romantic prospects in a long time. And Blake…he was over the moon at the suggestion. So was his wife, Annie. But then, almost the moment we signed the contract, someone tried to run me down. BOOK 5 We fought like cats and dogs. He made fun of my mode of dress and I…well, I usually just blushed and hit his arm, telling him to shut up. But I hated it, hated feeling like I was in high school again. So when Megan, my best friend and my boss, told me that we were to go on an undercover operation together, pretend to be a young, married couple, I thought she was insane. Or trying to play match maker. BOOK 6 Megan's story. That's all I'm saying ;)

KID I fell in love with an underaged girl. The day we met she downed a bottle of pills and tried to jump off a bridge. Not exactly the love story you want to tell your grandchildren, is it? I could go into detail. Give you the nitty gritty, but I’m worried the details won’t matter when you find out just how badly I messed everything up… SHADOW I'm no stranger to a woman warming my bed. Just like riding my bike, the freedom I get from deciding if one night should turn into two, or if a number should be deleted altogether, is thrilling. I've never been dishonest about what my expectations are. What's new for me is being the one ghosted. So imagine my surprise when the girl who decided I wasn't enough shows up on my doorstep burdened with the consequences of her own lies and deceit. SINDICATE (EXCLUSIVE TO THIS BOX SET) The civilian world is supposed to be easy after fighting in a war. Taking acting classes while also working as a personal trainer, I keep myself pretty busy. I’m focused, homed in on my goals, but there’s no way not to be distracted by Aviana Maguire. There’s something about her standoffish demeanor that makes curious. When she disappears, like she never even existed, I’m forced into action. With the help of long-time friends in the Cerberus MC, I end up in the seedy underbelly of Vegas. I’m here to rescue the girl, but getting involved in SIN while I’m here is impossible to avoid.

Kick, Push, Coast


Jay McLean - 2016
     ★SYNOPSIS for Kick, Push There’s a single defining moment within every skater. It lasts only a second. Two if you're good. Three if you’re really good. It’s the moment you’re in the air, your board somewhere beneath you and nothing but wind surrounds you. It’s the feeling of being airborne. The sixteen-year-old version of me would’ve said it was the greatest feeling in the world. Then at seventeen, I had my son. And every single second became a defining moment. Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us. Seventeen. Single. Dad. That’s what my life became. Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being airborne. Or at least I convinced myself I did. But I lied—to myself and to everyone around me. Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds. You know what sucks about being in the air? Coming down from the high. Sometimes you land on the board and nail the trick. Then kick, push, and coast away. Other times you fall. You fall hard. And those are the times when it’s not as easy to get back up, dust off your pads and try again. Especially when the girl with the emerald eyes becomes your drug... And you become her poison.

★SYNOPSIS for Coast
One life-changing summer.  One boy. The boy. The boy who offered me safe touches and heart-stopping smiles - smiles he shared with his son. We filled our days with porch-step kisses,  filled our ears with laughter,  filled our hearts with love.  Deep, soul-aching, desperate love. But love is misleading. It’s an invisible, fleeting moment. Somewhere between false adoration and pure hatred comes an emotion, a vulnerable need, a single desire. It lives within the ones who miss it, who crave it,  who know better than to expect it. Love is relentless. Even when that love turns to hate, turns to loathing,  turns to pain.  Love should heal you.  But it can also break you.  Believe me, I know… Because I'm Becca Owens - a broken girl… …And he's Josh Warden - the boy who broke me.
