CARDS OF LOVE- NINE OF SWORDS by Bella Love-Wins

They hired me to keep her safe. I never planned to give her a baby.

My job was to do what I do best.
Watch my target. Protect them at all costs. Kill anyone who gets in my way.
My weapon of choice? Anything with a sharp edge.
But the second I see my newest client, I know I’m in trouble.
The pain in her eyes, her sinful body, those sky-high, take-me-hard, spiked heels I can’t ignore.
In one night, we share more than I thought possible.
Our secrets.
Our torments.
Her bed.
I never expected she’d give me so much more.
Until I find out she’s having my baby.
Then out of nowhere, the threat of danger becomes real.
But I’m ready.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, even if it means laying down my own life.

Warning. This dark and dirty romance is steamy, dangerous, and swoon-worthy. If you like slightly over the top romance stories with a dominant alpha male, this is for you! Standalone romance with no cliffhanger and a naughty happily ever after to give you all the feels.


THE POPE by LP Lovell

***THE POPE is a full length standalone, completely unrelated to either LP Lovell’s previous titles, or the other Cards of Love stories***

I’m a priest, a messenger of God, a good man. At least that’s what I would have them all believe.

She’s a lost lamb, cast adrift from her flock and seeking shelter from the wolves snapping at her heels.

She’s looking for salvation, protection, forgiveness for her sins. I’m not the man to give it to her.

But for the first time in my life, I want to be.

Little does she know…

For even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.


SAINT by JB Salsbury 

Milo sold his soul to the devil to save an angel.

Now he’s after revenge.

There are worse prisons than the lush estate of a notorious drug smuggler in Mexico.

Mercy lives out her days alone and hidden from the world, but her sleep is riddled with nightmares of the muti and all the boys and girls just like her who weren’t lucky enough to get away.

If the people who kept her as a child are in Mexico, is it possible she could find them?

What starts as vigilante justice unravels a web of human trafficking deeper and darker than Milo and Mercy could’ve imagined.

When she comes face-to-face with the people she once considered family, she proves she is far from the Angel they raised her to be.

BEAU by Nicole Edwards

THEIR LOVE IS UNDENIABLE…
Happily married for four and a half years, Beau and Ethan Walker are ready for the next phase in their lives. They want what so many people dream of: A baby.

THEIR COMMITMENT IS UNWAVERING…
Expanding their family with a tiny bundle of joy isn’t as easy for them as it is for the rest of the Walker clan. However, they have options and they’re willing to do what it takes because they’ve learned that the things worth fighting for aren’t always easy, but they are definitely worth it.

THEIR STRENGTH WILL BE TESTED…
Despite their deep desire and their endless efforts to start a family, there are outside forces working against them. Some they can see, others they can’t. Every step forward seems to take them two steps back.

Only during their darkest moments do Beau and Ethan realize their true strength comes from the most important things they have: love, family, and each other.

BEAU is the sequel to ETHAN (Alluring Indulgence, 5). While it can be read as a standalone since it occurs nearly five years after Beau and Ethan are married, it is recommended that you read ETHAN to understand the true strength of these two men and the infallible bond of the Walker family.

SO WILD by Eve Dangerfield

As a teenager, Samantha DaSilva had two interests: running wild and messing with her posh neighbour. The neighbour moved away–the coward–but the wild kept right on going. At least it did until her hippie father vanished, leaving her in charge of the family tattoo studio. As Sam struggles to keep the business afloat her childhood nemesis returns, taller, blonder and more offensively gorgeous than ever.
As a teenager, the wildest thing Scott Sanderson did was get a crush on Sam DaSilva. When that blew up in his face he moved to London to pursue realistic goals and girls who didn’t set fire to his underwear. When unexpected circumstances pull Scott back into Sam’s orbit,  he’s shocked to discover he’s still in love with a woman who doesn’t own a phone. And who hasn’t forgiven a thing.
As Sam and Scott struggle to make sense of their mutual attraction, they confront some of life’s biggest questions–can you ever really get over the past? Is it better to be safe or sorry? Is a spanking adequate punishment for putting someone’s virginity on eBay?

LOST WITH ME by J. Kenner

His touch takes my breath away. Our passion feeds my soul…

My love for Damien fills me, and the intensity of our bond brings me to my knees. For him, there is no burden I wouldn’t bear, no decadent punishment to which I won’t submit.

The dark days seemingly behind us, we have carved a life out of adversity, chiseling away pain to reveal strength and beauty. Now, all I want is to laugh with our children in the sunlight, then surrender myself to Damien’s embrace in the dark.

But lingering secrets and hidden menace threaten our family. Now, Damien and I must forge a new strength from our shared passion and hope the fire between will burn away the darkness and protect everything we hold most dear.


BREAK ME DOWN by M. Mabie

BREAK ME DOWN is the continuation of Abraham and Myra’s story and the second novel in the Breaking Trilogy.

“I wasn’t the woman I once was, sheltered from reality. Through it all, one thing remained the same—I wanted Abraham.”

A life outside the gates of Lancaster was never a choice I would have made on my own. Groomed into obedience, I was blind to their manipulation, their neglect, and their abuse.

They are a cult.

Abraham saved me.

Then the ugliest truths came out, and I ran.

Regardless of how hard I push him away, there is no denying the security and comfort I found in his arms. No ignoring the pull he has on me or how his affection gives me strength.

Hope.

The will to fight.

But I’ll have to find myself before I can ever be truly his.

The real world broke my heart, but it wouldn’t break me down.

when the past is revealed, the truth shocks the hell out of him.

Being emotionally crushed ten years ago, Easton Ravel hoped he would never have to see the man who broke him again. Hope is a fickle b*itch. And now he’s not sure how to handle being face-to-face with the man he once loved. Add in the mix the annoying, testy Parker, and Easton finds his limits are pushed.

What happens next sure does come out of the blue.

CONQUERED by Angel Payne

Can one turn of fate be their conquering destiny?

Jen Thorne is the resident book geek at Nellis Air Force Base, though she’s strict about keeping her fictional men separate from her real-life expectations. It’s safer, for her heart and soul, to maintain her personal life as a no-fly zone.

Until she stumbles onto Sam Mackenna’s radar.

It’s clear the Scottish RAF pilot-on loan to the Air Force for a month of cross-training-is more than Jen’s fantasy Highlander come to life. His commanding aura is as intoxicating as his golden gorgeousness, and she’s unable to resist the desire to let him dominate her in every way possible.

Never has a man unlocked more of Jen’s darkest desires and erotic yearnings-but being the man’s perfect submissive in the sheets doesn’t mean she’s his life’s destiny. Why would an alluring hunk like Sam choose a wallflower like her for anything more than his kinky booty call? Once he returns to Scotland, forgetting him will be easy-if she can prevent him from completely conquering her heart.

But that may be easier said than done.


TRAILER PARK HEART by Rachel Higginson

Trailer park born and raised. It’s my legacy. That’s how my mama lived. And that’s how her mama lived. It’s the life I was born into and it’s the life I swore I would leave the second I was old enough to make it out.

Only legacies have a funny way of sneaking up on you. An innocent decision the night of high school graduation led to a series of complications in my plans to escape.

Seven years later, I’ve resigned myself to this small town and the roots I’m tied to. Nothing could make me leave. And nothing could make me spill the secrets that keep me here.

Until he walks back into town with a chip on his shoulder and a stupid hunch nobody else in town has been smart enough to follow.

Levi Cole is my opposite. Born on the right side of the tracks with family money to spare, he’s the kind of black sheep that can afford to be rebellious—because his family will always pay for his mistakes. He’s also the only living heir to Cole Family Farms, after his brother Logan was killed in duty seven years ago.

He sees something in my life that he thinks he has a right to. But he’s wrong. And obnoxious. And he needs to take his stubborn good looks and that intense way he looks at me and go back to wherever it was he came from.

I know better than to trust men like him. I was born and raised in a trailer park, I know nothing good happens to girls like me—girls with trailer park lives and trailer park hearts. Especially from gorgeous, kind, pigheaded men like him.


A BRAND NEW ENDING by Jennifer Probst

FALL by Kristen Callihan

The first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways.

In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip.

Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands.

Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor.

An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room.

Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun.

Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything.

All we have to do is trust enough to fall.

CRUSHING ON THE COP by Piper Rayne – Buy Link TBA

Cristian Bianco has two things against him—he’s a police officer and he’s a police officer in the 18th District…meaning my dad is his boss.

Growing up as the Commander’s daughter and having his magnifying glass focused on everything I did was more than I could handle.

Now, I’m out on my own, living by my own rules. Well, mostly. The ‘job’ I created for myself has me in some hot water and my exit strategy isn’t exactly working out how I’d hoped.

Which is why when my best friend bids on Cristian for me at a charity bachelor auction, I’m not having it. A man in blue is only going to be one thing for me—a problem.

Except after his brother starts dating my best friend he becomes harder to ignore. The eight-pack abs. The sense of style only a girl like me can appreciate. The way he puts his family first. It all adds up to make him one irresistible prospect and has me wondering if he knows how to use those handcuffs the right way—by locking my wrists to his headboard.


THE DAY THE JERK STARTED FALLING by Max Monroe 

My name is Oliver Arsen, but my mates call me Ollie.

I live hard and love harder, and it’s love that usually gets me in the most trouble.

According to the greater population, I’m the ultimate jerk.

My affection tends to be short-lived—a quality I’ve been assured multiple times by the fairer sex isn’t becoming—and the leaving part of loving and leaving has always come natural.

At least, it used to.

Until her.

Luciana Wright.

She’s an American bombshell and my sister’s best friend—a woman so wrong for
me, it’s written in the waves.

And she’s the reason we’re all here.
The reason I have to go back to explain how it all went wrong.

To the day the jerk started falling.


ACE OF SWORDS by Nora Flite – buy link TBA

Smart men don’t sleep with their boss’s daughter.

It’s one of the easiest rules.

There are no late hours spent pouring over data or carefully gathered notes to decide if, for sure, you shouldn’t grab hold of that forbidden woman.

That you shouldn’t ache to kiss her.

To make her scream your name.

I’m a smart man.

So why didn’t I follow the rules?
