Strictly Business by Lisa Renee Jones


Damion West was the boy who stole my young heart and then broke it. That was a long time ago though and I’m not a girl susceptible to hot boys with big egos who just happen to kiss well anymore. Nor have I kept up with Damion West. Okay, I have. Everyone has. He's the CEO of West Enterprises, the one responsible for the landmark shift in the company after his father stepped down a few years back. But I only know this because he's notoriously loud on social media. Everyone knows Damion West. Just not like I do. But that's another story better left untold. It’s hard sometimes to remember that I’m no slouch myself. Confidence isn't exactly my forte but I fake it well. I’ve worked with my parents’ real estate firm catering to the rich and famous for years and I'm now one of the top agents in the country. I'm proud of this achievement, because I do work for my highly successful parents, and I could have just ridden the name. Instead, I earned respect. Respect matters to me for reasons I don't really discuss. Blue Enterprises is the company, which is also my name. Blue. Alana Blue. My mother, now retired, is Ellen Blue. My father is Richard Blue. It's a cool name. Kind of like West. Everything was going well in my life, even if there was this sense of predictability many might think my job doesn't allow. But it does. Everyone around me but my parents put on a show. It's all fake. Nothing is real. Then one day I get a call from a female claiming to be the assistant to a powerful man who wants to work with me, and only me. It's all so mysterious and considering the people I work with, and my reputation for discretion, a little odd. Until I arrive at the luxurious villa and come face to face with you know who. That's right. Damion West. And Lord help me he's now sexier, and more arrogant than ever. Also it turns out that what Damion wants from me isn't as simple as a real estate contract.



Only You by Samantha Young


Once upon a time, Monroe Sinclair was Brodan Adair’s best friend, but now he’s a stranger and one of Hollywood’s leading men… It took Monroe Sinclair eighteen years to return home to Ardnoch after a fateful night that devastated her friendship with Brodan Adair. She fled her unrequited love for him, as well as her difficult family life, and tried not to look behind her. Only a daughter’s guilt could lure her back to the Highlands and the assumption that Brodan Adair rarely ever sets foot in their hometown. She can handle seeing the rest of the Adairs so long as she can avoid her ex-best friend and the only man she’s ever loved. Nothing is more important to Brodan than family, and only his demons have the power to keep him from them. For years, acting was something he was lucky enough to be good at, yet it wasn’t his priority—Ardnoch and his siblings were. But when a ghost from his past returned out of the blue, Brodan tried to outrun its haunting, taking him further and further from home. When exhaustion finally forces him back to the family fold, the last thing he wants is to encounter another ghost. But that’s exactly what Monroe Sinclair has been to him. When a promise to his nephew obliges Brodan to work with Monroe, it forces them to face their past. The explosive connection that has always existed between them resurrects truths long buried. Yet, just when they might be on the brink of a second chance, the ghost from Brodan’s past finally catches up to him and threatens not just their happiness, but their very lives.



Teach Me by L. L. Ash


Mia - I've been trying to get that TA job ever since my senior year at college. I'm in my last semester of my Master's degree and finally got the job. Only problem is our new professor is a sexy, middle aged, brilliant writer and an even better teacher. He runs the English department and now he's my boss, my professor, and the center of every last one of my fantasies. There's no way I should want him this much, but it's those dang glasses and that smile and that little dimple in his chin. I was swooning the moment I met Professor Harlo, but the moment he opened his mouth, I fell in love. Owen - This is the last thing I wanted. I'm fresh off a divorce and with two kids and two demanding careers, I don't have the time or energy for this. Except, this girl sticks inside my brain like ABC gum and I can't shake her. Doesn't help that we're crammed in my office grading papers several days a week for hours at a time. The whole innocent thing she has going on kept me away, but she's a writer too, and I made the mistake of reading her half finished romance book. Unfortunately for me, the things I love about this girl are her mind and spirit, and those are the two things I can't say no to.



Hearthstone Alpha by A.C. Melody


It's the one thing they told her never to be, but can she keep that vow when it's more than just her heart at stake? Returning to Pine Grove should've been a golden opportunity, but things have changed in Reyna's absence. Her childhood home is full of gorgeous men led by the magnetizing and infuriating Corbyn Bruschard. He threatens to unravel everything she believes is right, triggering her defenses. She's determined to uphold the promises made to her parents. But the connection she feels to Corbyn makes her yearn for things they warned were too dangerous. Corbyn walks a precarious line between animal instincts and human sensibilities. He knew Reyna was his the moment he scented her, luring him into a battle he hadn't foreseen. His beautiful mate is a Valkyrie in Úlfr clothing, her proverbial shield deflecting him at every turn. But Corbyn knows the dangers that lurk in her denial. Their enemies are circling, rising from every direction, and there's no bigger target than an Alpha's Mate. Corbyn will have to use every means necessary to keep Reyna safe, even those she fears the most.



Deep Gap by Jody Kaye


What does an almost middle-aged guy like me have in common with a young woman who was never allowed to grow up? Not much… Other than death. Greer accepts responsibility for taking life for granted. But the weight of others’ expectations leaves her existing in the past. She stands on one side of a deep chasm, tied down by regrets that highlight a bleak future. When Greer needs a lift, I recognize our histories are strikingly similar, and I’m struggling as much with being left behind by the people I held dear. But can two lonely hearts bridge the gap together and find a promise for tomorrow?
