  • Alaska Night by Daisy Sweeney

    0 out of 5

    An arrogant stranger with a mysterious past. An innocent girl desperate to heal her broken family. Thrown together by fate, they find themselves fighting a harsh Alaskan winter. Will they ignore their blistering sexual chemistry or will they give in under the skies of an Alaska Night?

    Jules Harper knows that no one comes to Bright Bay in the middle of winter. But one January morning, Night Calloway proves her wrong, riding into the wild woods, ready to break hearts with his chiseled body and grass green eyes. He’s there to make fast money and get away from the dark past that’s been chasing him in the lower 48. If he warms the bed of every pretty girl in town while he does it, all the better. He’s scored logging work with the help of the town’s golden boy and he plans on sweating hard, pocketing the cash and moving on.

    Then he sees her.

    A sweet-faced local girl raising her little sister, begging her alcoholic father to pick life over death, forced to grow up before her time—the first real emotion Night has felt in years is to protect Jules. But she’s heard the rumors. He’s in town to steal the jobs, and the women. Yet somehow, as soon as he locks his tattooed arms around her, she’s ready to stay in them forever. She doesn’t care that she has no idea who he was before he roared into Alaska.

    Just as she falls hard, her world is consumed with dangerous accusations, breathless calls and nightly disappearances. Jules wants to jump to Night’s defense, but when he’s accused of terrible crimes, she doesn’t know if Bright Bay is plotting to bring an outsider down or if she’s really in bed with the enemy. Tangled in a web of lust and law-breaking, Jules knows what her real fear is: When winter ends, will Night disappear with it?

  • The Moments We Share by Barbara C. Doyle

    0 out of 5

    We were a walking contradiction that couldn’t be understood. Leather and cowboy boots. Rock and country. And the longer we spent together, the more truths we uncovered with nothing but destruction in our wake.

    Following the breakup of country music’s hottest couple, Ashton King signs to work on a collaboration with America’s number one rock band Relentless in hopes of bringing good publicity following damaging reputations in the media.

    Bass guitarist Dylan Hilton’s constant partying and strained relationships in the press causes scrutiny for the whole band and could cost them their contract with the label. But Ashton can see the truth hidden behind the arrogant facade, a kindred spirit that mirrors her own broken soul masked with a fake smile for the press.

    Maybe the collaboration is exactly what the pair needs, sharing moments that will allow them to rise from the ashes they’re buried under. Or maybe the moments they share will only cause more damage that neither can come back from.

  • Pushing Arlo by MV Ellis

    0 out of 5

    He thought he had it all, until he met her.

    They say you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone, but for notorious womanizer Arlo Jones, it’s a case of not knowing what you want ’til it’s standing in front of you. The moment he meets London, he realizes she’s the piece of the puzzle he never knew was missing, but can’t live without. He does everything he can to get her, but just as he thinks she’s finally ready to give in to her feelings, he’s reminded how empty his life was without her in it.

    She thought she had a plan, until she met him.

    They say the best-laid plans often go awry, and for aspiring photographer London Llwellyn, that’s definitely the case when she falls for Arlo. That was never part of her plan. She tries her best to avoid being pulled into his vortex, but he manages to turn her head upside down and her heart inside out. Just as she thinks she’s ready to commit to forever, she’s reminded of the reasons she resisted him for so long.

    He’s pulling her closer. How long can she keep pushing him away?

  • Red (A Brett MacLean Duet) by J.M. Walker

    0 out of 5

    Just when you thought you had it all…… It can be ripped from you in the most devastating way. Will you be prepared to fight?

    It started without trust. Passion. Lust. An all-consuming need; that was all we had in the beginning.

    Lies. Betrayal. Deceit. We moved past it all and fell in love anyway.
    Over ten years later, with a family of our own, our little world was perfect. Happy.

    But then that happiness faded away when she came into our lives.
    No control. No power. Just heartbreak and unwanted submission.

    We were forced to our knees at the sight of her. The words falling from her lips were like nails digging at our soul because we knew.

    We would have to go through hell to get out of this.

    And even then, I wasn’t sure if it would be enough.
