FOR EMERY by J. Nathan

Emery
I’ve loved Jordan Grady since I was eight.
Since he became my protector.
Since he became my safe haven each night.
But I was younger.
Off limits…
Until high school when he finally kissed me.
And for a few fleeting moments, everything was right in the
world.
Then I was forced to do the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do…
Disappear from his life without a trace.

Grady
I’m Alabama’s star right tackle–and a real prick.
I live my life by a few solid truths.
Life isn’t fair.
Don’t let anyone get too close.
And those who claim to care about you can up and leave.
But you know what they say about things that disappear….
But Emery Pruitt had never been mine.
Even if she had returned after four years.
Older.
Confident.
And more beautiful than the night she vanished.
But it didn’t erase the fact that she’d left me.
So, why find me now?

Each book in the For You series is a complete standalone following a different couple.

A SINGLE GLANCE by W. Winters

From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes a heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat gripping, romantic suspense.

I saw her from across the bar.

My bar. My city. Everything in that world belonged to me.

She stood out from the crowd like she was looking for someone to blame for her pain.

That night, I felt the depths of my mistakes.

I felt my scars.

With a single glance, I knew her touch would take it all away.

I craved it more than anything.

I knew she would be a tempting, beautiful mistake.

One I would make again and again… even if it cost me everything.


DIRTY HALO by Julie Johnson

Emilia Lancaster is the royal family’s dirty little secret.

Born the illegitimate daughter of a duke, for twenty years she’s lived as a commoner… despite the regal blood running through her veins. But when the entire royal family is killed in a deadly attack, the line of succession swiftly changes course. With her ailing father appointed king and no legitimate heirs in sight, Emilia is pulled from the shadows and thrust into a destiny she never wanted.

If this were a fairy tale, the palace would be paradise. In reality, with a father she barely knows on the throne, a deadly assassin still on the loose, and enemies around every gilded corridor corner — the callous, captivating Lord Carter Thorne chief among them — it feels more like a prison to Emilia. One filled with unattainable expectations, unfamiliar customs, and undesirable suitors.

They want her to behave like a good little girl.
They want her to put on her glittering crown and keep her mouth shut.

They’re about to be disappointed.

She may have agreed to be their princess…
But she’s no one’s puppet.

DIRTY HALO is a royal romance about an ordinary girl who inherits an extraordinary legacy. Filled with forbidden love, murderous plots, and machiavellian intrigue, it is recommended for mature readers only. It is the first book in the FORBIDDEN ROYALS TRILOGY.


SEXY LITTLE SINNER by J. Kenner

It was wrong to stay together … but we couldn’t stay apart.

I’ve been with my share of women, but none touched my heart and fired my senses the way she did.

Her smile enticed me.

Her caresses teased me.

Her body aroused me.

And yet, it couldn’t last.

There were too many years between us.

A gap we couldn’t breach, and we broke it off.

No. I broke it off. And I’ve regretted that decision ever since.

Now she’s in danger, and there’s no one else I trust to protect her. But the more time we spend together, the more I want her back. And all I know now is I have to keep her safe—and despite both of us knowing better, somehow, someway, she will be mine again.


CAPTURED by  KL Myers

Life is a series of moments.

Like making my first million—it was amazing, but nothing compared to the moment I saw Emery.

She was the one…the game changer.

The long-time, self-pronounced bachelor was ready to give it all away with one look, and luckily, she felt the same.

We fell in love despite the haters and laughed at the nay-sayers who swore we would never work.

It didn’t matter to us that we were from different worlds.

We loved each other and the life we had planned. It was perfect.

Until they took her away from me.

The moment I saw her life leave her eyes, I became something she would never recognize.

Revenge colored my world, and nothing would make me happy until I filled the hole Emery left behind.

Years of searching, of fighting against those who wronged me and punishing others who never deserved my wrath led me to Willow Summer’s door.

Something shifted, leaving me to wonder if I’d release her from her pain, or if she’d release me from mine.

Love created a monster, and maybe now, love can set him free.


LIES THAT BIND US by K.L. Clare

He is dangerous, and I am captivated.

I see him on the street, encounter him at the pier. He’s there when my family is murdered, and I must decide: is this man someone I can trust, a killer—or both? Falling for him is easy because I have nothing more to lose. But she does, so I take her and run to England with him.

Power … he is power. I want to breathe it in. I need to feel it inside me.

His stately country house is my refuge, but it’s his sensual and commanding presence that becomes my home and strengthens me. A rising dark threat closes in, and we vow to defy the course of fatal events before us. We promise to live. The obsession—this intense love story of ours—is the one thing we can’t survive.

HEA. Mature content 18+.

When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can’t help thinking she’s been saved from one threat and exposed to another.

They are meant to be enemies, and Nash’s sizzling, dominant touch might not be enough to keep them together.

“A kiss was all I needed.”
“Looks like you got what you wished for.”

When my ex shows up at the bar, Tanner notices my panic and kisses me just so the prick can see. Then he takes off, leaving me breathless.

So, I do what any rational person would. I chase after him onto the subway, and embark on a wild night in New York City with a complete stranger.

No matter how much I fight it, this mysterious artist painted his soul onto my skin, and I haven’t been able to forget him. Our romance is one for the ages, but age isn’t the only thing standing in our way.


LESSONS FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND by Piper Rayne

If you’re a guy like me, and you find yourself having banged your sexy new boss—the school principal—in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, here’s a few takeaways based on my experience…

Lesson One: Always get her FULL name.

Lesson Two: Consider asking what she does for a living.

Lesson Three: Find out why she’s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial.

Lesson Four: Don’t alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing.

Lesson Five: If you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when you’re sent to the principal’s office.

Lesson Six: NEVER sleep with her again.

Lesson Seven: Pay attention to this one—it’s the most important of them all.
Don’t fall for your one-night stand.

Class dismissed.


THE PICKUP by Nikki Ash

Somebody once said we don’t decide who we love. The world decides for us. But I disagree.

I believe love is a decision.
Who we love, how we love.
It’s in our control–in our hands.

I grew up having no clue about the true meaning of love. Money. Cars. Houses. Status. Fame. That’s what love means to the people around me.

It wasn’t until the woman I picked up in a bar came back into my life and showed me love can be so much more.

So, what’s the problem?
The woman I’m falling in love with believes in fairytales. She compares everything to a storybook and wants the happily-ever-after.

So while she’s stuck on recreating stories that have already been told, page by page, I’m showing her it’s time we write our own book.

Nobody ever said the journey of falling in love would be easy, just that it would be worth it.

*The Pickup is a standalone sports romance*


CAR CRASH by T Gephart

Kitty was not only beautiful but also incredibly intelligent—except when it came to relationships. It seemed if a guy was a loser, corrupt, deadbeat or unavailable, she was completely and utterly attracted to him. She definitely had a “type,” and all of them had been one bad decision after another.

Dallas had trouble of his own. Finding women wasn’t a problem—he could charm the pants off almost anyone—but most of those “pantless” women ended up being a few bananas short of a fruit basket. Not always the best candidates for his sex-without-strings philosophy. He was one date away from ending up a 60 Minutes special.

While both of them were at the top of their game professionally—she a high-powered executive assistant, and he one of the best tattooists in the city—their personal lives had become a dumpster fire.

No one in their right mind would have suggested they join forces to help each other wade through the crazy. Surely that was a recipe for disaster? But without reason, logic or even sanity on their side, they decided to do it anyway.

It was a hot mess primed for a head-on collision.
