AVAILABLE NOW


LOCK by Debra Anastasia

I met her among the chaos of a gang fight – one that I inadvertently started.

Ember.

Beautiful, feisty, and passionate. And the sister of Mercy, an infamous assassin. We fell for each other, hard. Until forces outside of our control intervened.

Now, she’s a prisoner, doing everything she can to keep her family safe. And I’m her guard, doing everything I can to set her free.

I’d take a bullet for her. Hell, I’d take a few.

In this dark, twisted world, we only have each other. But I have to wonder, is that enough?

From the author of MERCY and HAVOC comes a new standalone about love, family, loyalty and sacrifice.


PRETTY LITTLE PLAYER by J. Kenner

Bedroom games are fine … but I need a woman who won’t play with my heart.

After years in the military, I’ve faced down a lot of things, and there’s not much I shy away from. Except relationships. Because when you catch your wife in bed with another man, that tends to sour even the most hardened man against women.

When I was hired to keep surveillance on a woman with a checkered past, I went into the job anticipating the worst. But what I found was a woman who turned my head. Who made my blood heat and my body burn. A woman who made me feel alive again.

A woman who was nothing like what I expected, but everything I wanted. A woman who, it turned out, needed my protection. And wanted my touch.

And as the world fell out from under us, and everything I thought I knew shifted, there was only one reality I could hold onto—that the more I got to know her, the more I wanted her.

But if I’m going to make her mine, I’ll have to not only keep her safe, I’ll have to prove to her that I’ve conquered my own fears and doubts. That I’m done looking into the past, and that all I want is a future—with her.


ROOM MATE by Katie Ashley

From the time I was a kid, I knew I wanted a job helping people. After serving in the Rifles regiment of the British Army, I focused my civilian career on becoming a bodyguard to the rich and famous. For a Cockney Brit, I never imagined a twist of fate landing me a position in the United States Secret Service and protecting the President’s son. But then my boss made an unexpected request: leave my current placement to move in with his only daughter to give an added layer of protection against the threats she had been receiving. I’d never lived with a woman who was off-limits to me. It wasn’t just that Caroline had a boyfriend. She was my best friend’s sister, and my boss’s daughter. But the longer we’re in such close quarters together, the greater the temptation grows, but I know I’ll lose everything if I pursue her.

Growing up as the only girl with two overbearing older brothers, I’m no stranger to being overprotected. Just as I finished up college and prepared to truly dip my toes into the adult world, my father was elected President of the United States, which added a whole new level of protection with the Secret Service team attached to me. Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly be more smothered, I began receiving threats, and my family decided it wasn’t enough to just have an agent living down the hall from me. Nope, I was to have one move in with me, and not just any agent, but Ty Frasier—my brother, Barrett’s best friend, and my brother, Ty’s, head agent. While most women would enjoy living with a sexy, buff Brit, having a roommate threw a wrench into all my plans. Especially when I began noticing Ty was so much more than a hot guy—he was someone I could fall for.

**Stand-alone set in the world of Running Mate and Office Mate**

Wanted: hot nerd seeks dating coach.
Picture this – I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I’m good and ready this time around. After all, if you’re going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops.

There’s only one little problem.

My college girlfriend isn’t the one who shows up when I play my “I’ll do anything to win you back” tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore. But she’ll help me win her back. Anything for romance, anything for a guy so willing to go big for love. And that’s what I want at first. Until I get to know my new “romance coach” and discover she’s funny, clever, and keeps me on my toes. Now I don’t want to win anyone else’s heart. I want the woman who’s been helping me all along. Trouble is – she thinks I’m in love with someone else, and when we take off on a road trip, everything I think I know about women is about to be unzipped and turned inside out.

***
He’s the last person I ever expected to pop into my life, but he might be exactly what I need to save the thing that matters most to me. All I have to do is not fall for him.
Unzipped is a standalone romance!

LET’S TRY LOVE by Paula Leoni

Sometimes opening yourself to love is worth the risk.

Nick Rossi believes in living life to its fullest, whether he’s scaling a mountainside, riding cross-country on his custom Harley, or donning a super hero outfit to entertain kids at his restaurant. However, when it comes to relationships, love is one danger zone he won’t revisit. Been there, done that, got the burn marks. These days his motto is “keep it casual.” So, no way a prickly, uptight woman like Beth Chaney is going to change his mind. Especially when she thinks he has a Peter Pan complex and would be a bad influence on her eight year-old boy.

Sure, Beth has a darker outlook on life, but with good reason. Since a drunk driver shattered her family three years ago, she can barely remember what happiness feels like. Her friends encourage her to start dating again, but why bother? What man wants to take on a worn out single mom and her special needs son? Though her life is boring, at least Robbie’s safe, and that’s enough. Until a footloose pizzeria owner with twinkling brown eyes has the nerve to suggest she needs to step out of her comfort zone.

But it’s hard to ignore someone’s opinion when a small voice in the back of your mind is telling you they’re right. Soon, Beth and Nick each realize that first impressions can be deceiving, and what you thought you wanted is entirely different than what you need….
