Once upon a time a sinner, a priest and a madman played a dangerous game…
She is a sinner.
He is a serial killer.
She demanded vengeance.
He demanded her.
She vowed to avenge.
He vowed to destroy.
She created a web of lies.
He wore a mask of deceit.
She wanted to escape.
He captured her instead.
There are no rules in this twisted game of theirs.
But there is a winner who claims the sinner.

About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

I fell in love with her. Then she died. But
that’s not the end of our story.
I met Sylvie Cranston when I was ten years old. Back then, she was the
annoying, weird girl who had moved next door and got me in trouble. But by
twelve, we became friends when I taught her how to bait a fishing line and she
showed me the value of a selfless act. At fourteen, she owned my heart.
At seventeen, she died.
Or so I was told. But I don’t believe it. Sylvie is part of my soul. I would
know if she was no more. I searched and prayed for her to come back to me.
Finally, I just waited for her.
Ten years later, she strolled into the English lit course I taught. Only this
girl claimed her name was Sophie Becker and she had no idea who I was. But I’m
not giving up. I’m going to get the girl I love back and protect her from the
danger that took her away all those years ago.
My name is Caleb Tanner and this is our story.

and cry, MK Schiller has penned more than a dozen books, each one filled with
misfit characters overcoming obstacles and finding true love.

Beauty and the Bayou, an all-new sexy, small town, opposites attract rom com from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!
Sawyer Landry knows he’s been beastly to be around for the past few months. But he can’t seem to remember how to be fun-loving and friendly. Until he sees Juliet Dawson on his boat dock… and realizes that hip waders are, apparently, one of his turn-ons. But despite the beauty in the boots, the last thing he needs right now is a city girl in his way for the next two weeks.
But he’s not really getting a vote. Juliet is determined that her little brother rebuild the dock he and his idiot friends smashed. She’s quirky, klutzy, independent…and possibly an even bigger pessimist than Sawyer is. He’s incredibly drawn to the cynical fish-out-of-water, who seems to be the one person who isn’t intimidated by his growling.
The big, gruff boat captain is the first person in a long time to want to watch out for her and Juliet finds that hotter than his grandma’s jambalaya. Well, that and his sexy scar, his emotional baggage, and the sense of humor and fun that is buried deep.
But Sawyer doesn’t need any more people to worry about long-term and the things that make him feel protective of Juliet aren’t going to go away. So, this two-week adventure can’t be anything more than a fling. With Juliet down on the bayou, there’s an even bigger threat than alligators and hurricanes. There’s the very good chance of someone ending up with a broken heart.
“I guess when we need relief from the heat, we go, you know, into the actual shade.” He looked amused. “Among other things.”“Other things?” It wasn’t so much that she needed to know other ways to keep cool. But she really liked the way he looked when he was mildly amused. It was a very good look on him. “Lots of water and sweet tea,” he said. She gave an involuntary shudder. His amused smile grew. “No to sweet tea?”“Not my favorite,” she admitted. “But don’t tell Ellie,” she added quickly.He chuckled at that. “I would never.”Yeah, the chuckling was nice, too. “I’ve got the water covered though,” she said. “Good.”“Anything else?”“Well, when we get hot there area couple of other things we do,” he said.Had he moved closer?Juliet swallowed. “Like what?”“We take clothes off,” he said. Yeah, his voice was definitely deeper now.“I gue—” She cleared her throat. “I guess that makes sense, but there are bugs and sunburn to consider.”He gave her a nod. “Sunscreen and bug repellent are important. Cora makes bug repellent that’s amazing.”Huh. Homemade bug repellent. She might have to give that a try. These people intrigued her, she had to admit. “What about the flying debris?”Sawyer glanced at the boards behind her. “Yeah, well, I guess we do take some risks down here.”Ah, ha. “I’d rather be a little hot than dealing with an infection from a piece of wood imbedding itself in my skin and muscle tissue.”Sawyer paused, then shook his head, almost disbelievingly. “Okay, girl. Then that only leaves one other thing to do when you get too hot.”“What’s that?”“Swimming.”For a moment, looking into Sawyer Landry’s eyes, for the first time since she’d been ten years old, Juliet wanted to take her clothes off and jump into a body of water. That lasted about twelve seconds. But that was twelve seconds longer than she’d considered doing it to that point. “I don’t have a swimming suit.”“You don’t need one. The fewer clothes the cooler you get.”“Skinny-dipping?” she asked. “Skinny-dipping,” he confirmed.“You actually skinny-dip?” she asked. “Of course.”Sawyer Landry naked.She just took a few seconds to relish that thought…and the images that went with it. Skinny-dipping with Sawyer might be the one way she would ever even possibly consider any of that. “Do you have a private pool with lots of chlorine and a maximum depth of three feet?” she asked. She wondered if being naked but with a life jacket on still counted as skinny-dipping. “Don’t need a pool when I’ve got a whole bayou in my backyard.”She shuddered. “There is no way I’m jumping in there. Clothes or not.”“So, the naked part of skinny-dipping isn’t the problem?” Sawyer asked. “It’s the water?”“It’s absolutely the water,” she said. It was actually all water, but water where she could see the bottom, touchthe bottom, and that was pumped through a filtration system was tolerable. Maybe. For a short period. With plenty of floatation devices within reach. “I mean, other than just the dirt, there are snakes and alligators and fish…and fish and alligator poopin there.” She frowned. “Do snakes poop? I mean, they probably do, right?”Sawyer blinked at her. “I’ve never really thought about it.”She nodded. “They almost have to. And they probably do it in that water, too.” She shuddered again. “No, thank you. There are just places I do notneed dirty bayou water.”“It’s the poop that’s keeping you from skinny-dippin’?” Sawyer asked, clearly trying not to laugh. “You are really thinking about the wrong thing when it comes to bein’ wet and naked, darlin’.”
About Erin Nicholas
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erin Nicholas has been writing romances almost as long as she’s been reading them. To date, she’s written over thirty sexy, contemporary novels that have been described as “toe-curling,” “enchanting,” “steamy,” and “fun.” She adores reluctant heroes, imperfect heroines, and happily ever afters.
Erin lives in the Midwest, where she enjoys spending time with her husband (who only wants to read the sex scenes in her books), her kids (who will never read the sex scenes in her books), and her family and friends (who claim to be “shocked” by the sex scenes in her books).
I love Sawyer and Juliet. These two could be more different than night and day, but these two are more alike than they seem. Juliet is always on top of things. She’s a planner. She is quirky. She thinks everything out ahead of time. Sawyer has lost. He’s lost his best friend. Juliet allows Sawyer to let his guard down. Sawyer and Juliet are a combination that might not work, but opposites do attract. These two have that attraction and then some.
I loved this story from start to finish. I love this series. I can’t wait to see what’s to come from Erin Nicholas. I can’t want to see what hot man she brings our way next.

Title: CALL HER MINE
Author: Melissa Foster
Genre: Contemporary Romance
About CALL HER MINE:
Fall in love in Harmony Pointe, where hearts are lost, found, and sometimes misplaced…and everyone get a happy ever after.
If a woman can’t find love in the quaint town of Harmony Pointe, it’s sure to find them—whether they’re looking for it or not. Here, the remaining single Dalton siblings are about to discover that they’re next in line to get swept away by love. A sweet and sexy spin-off of Melissa’s beloved Sugar Lake series.
Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.
Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.
But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after . . . just not one either of them expects.
The Harmony Pointe series is published by Montlake Romance and will be available in paperback and audio formats, and exclusively in digital format for Kindle and Kindle apps. Download a free Kindle reading app here: http://bit.ly/FreeKindle_App
