  • Forever and One Week by Caroline Cairn

    0 out of 5

    The Spirits of Saoradh, who carry the guilt of a crime they committed when they were alive, now spend their ghostly days in the Void, dark nothingness where time and space are distorted. Until they get bound to a human. As often as needed, that human can call them to the real world, ask them to grant a wish, then send them back to the Void. The Spirits also have to follow strict rules or be punished, unaware that they can earn their redemption through a selfless sacrifice.

    Spirit Logan despises the obedience he has to show to his humans, and prefers the enjoyable solitude of the Void. For three years, he has managed to threaten them into severing their bond, thus having his memory wiped of their existence. Except his latest human, an emotionless woman with a secret past, isn’t scared of him. Worse, she doesn’t care about his ability to make wishes come true.

    Tessa, a twenty-six-year-old nursery teacher in Fort William, Scotland, doesn’t expect a sullen ghost only she can see and touch to burst through her solid defences. Both dismayed and intrigued, she offers Logan a deal he can’t refuse: to live with her in the human world for one week, at the end of which she will agree to release him.

    Slowly, Tessa braves through the safety of her detachment towards people to show Logan some kindness. But the more her feelings deepen, the more Logan increases his distance…

  • Roar: A Soldiers of Fortune Romance by Aubrey Irons

    I don’t give a f*ck if I die tomorrow, as long as I get her tonight.

    Bryce

    I’ve been to war. I’ve lived in the streets. I’ve beaten the needle, and I’ve looked death in the face and laughed.

    So what the f*ck do I want with a sassy, smart-mouthed spitfire like Peyton Rivers?

    There are a thousand reasons I should stay away, beyond the fact that she’s my best friend’s sister. She’s just as broken as me. She’s seen the face of the devil and taken the time to spit in it, and she’s got scars like mine to prove it.

    Oh, and we’ve been down that road before, and it ended in blood and rain.

    But like I said, I’m a fighter. You gotta fight for what you want. And Peyton — the sassy, hard-knocks girl from my past with a body made for sin — is gonna be mine.

    The sins of the past never quite stay where you put them, do they?

    Peyton

    I worked hard to get to where I am. Stable, healed, and somewhat normal — with a family to call my own.

    I shut the door on Bryce Connors a long time ago. What we had was wrong then and the ghost of that memory is worse now.

    It’s just that there are people who tie us together, blood bonds that can’t be broken. But when our family is shattered, our friend stolen from us, the two of us are thrown together all over again until we get him back.

    Great; high stakes, high tensions, and halfway across the world with the one man I can’t seem to resist, even when everything about him makes my heart scream NO.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    …Or right?

    Tempting and volatile; he’s the hottest thing that never should have happened to me.

    It was supposed to be a one-time thing; my one one-night stand. He’s the tattooed, bareknuckle fighter with a body built for sin who I found beaten and bloodied in my elevator that night. He’s the one I patched up, the one I took care of, and the one I apparently couldn’t say no to when his mouth touched mine…

    A one night stand. Just one night, right?

    Yeah, wrong, because I just found out my “mysterious stranger” is actually going to be my brother-in-law in half an hour.

    Logan f**king Dempsey. The arrogant, panty-melting, rude and crude Marine-turned-billionaire who runs my late father’s company. He’s my new boss. He’s the best man in this wedding. He’s everywhere, and I can’t escape him.

    No matter how wrong it might be…

    *****

    Holy f*ck. Of all the girls in all the world, she has to be the random chick who found me that night and saved my f*cking life?

    She looked strangely familiar that night. Now that I know who she is, it’s like original sin staring me in the face.

    Good-girl doctor, totally off-limits Quinn Archer is literally the last girl on the whole damn planet a screwed-up guy like me should have anything to do with. I know this, I swear I do.

    There’s playing with fire, and then there’s sticking your hand in the flames. If I keep ignoring the rules, we’re both going to get burned. It’s just…

    Yeah, f*ck the rules; she’s gonna be mine.

    Five years ago, that cocky, egotistical a**hole played me like a fool and broke my heart.

    Hudson Banks; the dominant, tattooed, womanizing, ex-Marine-turned-billionaire who runs God-knows-what at my late father’s company.

    Oh, and he’s sexy as all f**k, and he damn well knows it.

    He’s like a gasoline fire; a scorchingly hot disaster, and if I’m not careful, I’m going to get burned.

    I’m on track to be the youngest New York State Senator ever elected; the bright, gutsy, good-girl media darling. Except my campaign funding just went dry, and it looks like the only solution is coming from the last person on Earth I’d ever want to take anything from. Oh, and it turns out bad-boy, tough-guy Hudson will be shadowing me 24/7 after he makes it clear that he’s in charge of “protecting the investment”.

    Yeah, just perfect; a reckless, irresistible d*ck like Hudson Banks is the last person I need being “in charge” of anything to do with me.

    Especially when I still can’t forget the taste of his lips or the feeling of that massive hardness I know he’s packing between his legs. It’s not fair that he’s even hotter now than he was back then. It’s not fair that those smoldering, arrogant eyes and that cocky, panty-melting grin still make me warm in places they shouldn’t. And it’s definitely not fair that five years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.

    So it looks like I’ve got two races on my hands: the one for election, and the one against the burning heat threatening to tear us both apart. But on the sprint to the finish line, what happens when the man who has everything comes up against the one thing he can’t have?
