Rebecca Jenshak is a self-proclaimed margarita addict, college basketball fanatic, and Hallmark channel devotee. A Midwest native transplanted to the desert, she likes being outdoors (drinking on patios) and singing (in the shower) when she isn’t writing books about hot guys and the girls who love them.
Can he overcome his pain and heartbreak in time to save the woman he loves?
Life had always come easy to Navy SEAL, Asher Thorne, until an overwhelming loss made him doubt his ability to protect the ones he loved. Devastated, he has no choice but to push on and do his duty.
Eden York’s job as a translator took a dangerous turn when she was asked to work on a highly confidential project in Venezuela. She thought she knew the risks, but with the fate of a nation at stake, they didn’t matter—she had to help.
Eden’s international team of experts is targeted by terrorists, trapping her in an unimaginable situation. When Asher’s team is sent in to rescue them, he wants to believe that this time will be different, this time he can protect someone worth saving, even if he has to sacrifice his own life to do it.
Asher took over the kiss, brushing his lips over hers in a tantalizing slow rhythm that coaxed her into following. Slowly his lips parted hers, and his tongue stole into her mouth, seducing hers into a dance. She felt the sensations flow down her neck, into her chest, and tighten her nipples. She rubbed her breasts against his chest, trying to find relief.
Is that me whining?
Ash’s fingers tangled in her hair, tipping her head in a way that allowed for a deeper kiss. She felt his heartbeat against her chest and beneath her fingers at his neck. He nipped at her lips, forcing her to open wider so that their breaths could mingle, and he could tempt her with a thrusting tempo, one that would be even more satisfying if it wasn’t just his tongue and a kiss.
She moved her hands and scrabbled for the hem of his t-shirt.
“Shhhh, slow down,” he soothed.
“No.” She thrust her palms under his shirt and sighed with pleasure when she met with the hot hard planes of his stomach. It was like touching hot velvet steel, only better, because it was Asher. She needed more. She pushed up higher and then groaned as her fingers delved into his chest hair.
“Eden, you don’t mean this, Honey.”
She tugged at his chest hair to punish him for denying her. “I do.”
“Eden,” he protested.
“I need to get close. Just let me get closer to you.” She heard the need in her voice and winced. “Please, Asher?”
As if he knew exactly how much it took for her to ask, he whipped the shirt over his head. It ended up somewhere, she didn’t care where. Then she was lifted and gently lowered down onto the carpet, her head resting onto the makeshift pillow.
“I need to be close to you too, Eden. You, Eden York. No other woman would ever do.”
How does he know the right words to say?
Asher looked her right in the eyes, then slowly, ever so slowly, unbuttoned the first button of her blouse. He placed a kiss on the upper swell of her breast. “So beautiful.”
He trailed kisses upwards, until soon their lips met again, and she was lost in a maelstrom of heat, hunger, and passion. She tried to spread her legs wide so she could wrap them around Asher, but the skirt was too tight, so she had to suffice herself with squeezing his thigh. She pushed up against him, trying to ease her ache.
“Eden—” he started.
“I need more,” she sobbed. After hearing his story. After seeing this man’s soul, she needed him. It felt like the world was crashing in around them, and she wanted him! Was he going to make her beg?
“Shhhhh, I’m here.” He cupped her head tightly to his chest. She started to relax. It was like she could breathe. “It’s okay, Baby, I’ve got you. I won’t let you down.”

New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Heidi McLaughlin and L.P. Dover come together for a sexy new series that delivers romance for every season!
Hoist the main sail and ready the bow thruster, this ship is going to be rocking.
London Bauer hates her job. Working with the New England elite, she’s used to yacht club snobs glaring down their noses at her as she serves them dinner and caters to their extravagant whims. Thankfully, they tip well and London needs every cent she can get.
One shift goes from bad to worse when Max Richmond saunters in. As if she needed another reminder why she should never mingle with the sailors, he has the audacity to ignore her. London wasn’t looking to sail off into the sunset with him after the night they spent together, but acknowledging her would have been common decency. She follows Max into the bathroom, fully intending to give him a piece of her mind. Instead, she finds herself getting wonderfully reacquainted with his drive shaft.
Now, Max is insistent that London join him at the Kingstown Regatta. Surrounded by his uppity friends and family, London fears the divide between their lives is too deep for any vessel to sail. While she’s ready to weigh anchor and move on, Max is manning his helm and prepared to show her they can weather the roughest of seas… together.
Climb aboard and wax the deck, the motion of this ocean will leave you weak in the knees.
The sound of his voice lingers in my mind. I can still feel the way he touched me and the way he kissed me. When I close my eyes, the vivid memories of our night together flash through my mind. I’ve never had a one night stand before, and I should’ve known better than to give in to him. Max Richmond. I don’t know how or why he noticed me, but he did. Someone like Max is only after one thing, but he sure does have a way with words…and he knows how to treat a woman in bed. He has a way of making you feel like you’re the only thing he could ever want.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L. P. Dover is a southern belle living in North Carolina with her husband and two beautiful girls. Everything’s sweeter in the South has always been her mantra and she lives by it, whether it’s with her writing or in her everyday life. Maybe that’s why she’s seriously addicted to chocolate.
Dover has written countless novels in several different genres, including a children’s book with her daughter. Her favorite to write is romantic suspense, but she’s also found a passion in romantic comedy. She loves to make people laugh which is why you’ll never see her without a smile on her face.
She’s got two strikes against her. Her name is Erickson and her parents own The Bagel Place. It wasn’t always that way. When we were nine, we were best friends. But then a feud between our dads ripped their successful business apart—and my best friend was ripped away too. Our paths were bound to cross again. When both our families vie for the same spot on a Food Channel’s reality show, the producers decide to change the format, aligning us as allies. In order to get our parents to agree to work together, Evan asks me to pretend to be her boyfriend, but I dare her to up the ante—be my fiancée. Fake fiancée… obviously. As usual, I didn’t think things through. Turns out our parents have a lot of demands neither one of us expected. And all those demands lead to things feeling more real than fake.

I was supposed to show Cole the city, as a favor to a friend. I was aware of his reputation, a seductive charmer hellbent on bachelorhood, but I hadn’t prepared for him to get past my defenses. Cole was nothing like the serious businessman I imagined. He was sinfully hot, funny and way too flirty for my broken heart. But, it was just vacation after all. I thought I’d never see him again.
Only I do.
Cole calls me the very day I return to New York. My residency has been my sole focus for the past few years—my passion and my refuge.
I’ve loved and lost and I don’t know how to open up again. But Cole is melting my fears with every kiss and touch, willing to move mountains to make me happy and help me heal.
And what scares me the most? I might just let him.
Welcome! My name is Layla Hagen and I am a Contemporary Romance author.
I fell in love with books when I was nine years old, and my love affair with stories continues even now, many years later. I write romantic stories and can’t wait to share them with the world. And I drink coffee. Lots of it 😀
This book is about learning to love again. Laney has a tragic past. One that makes her question if she can love again. This book was sweet. This book was love. This book was about overcoming. I loved falling in love with Laney and Cole. Cole was so patient. Cole’s love for Laney was heartfelt.
Watching the love grow between these two is so special. I love holding on to hope for more for these two. This was more than a story for me. It was about healing. It was about moving on. This book was everything I needed and waited.
I love Layla Hagen. When I ventured into the world of romance books, Layla was one of the first authors I read. I read every book I could get my hands on. My love for her and her books has continued to grow. I can’t wait to see what’s to come in the future.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep. –Robert Frost
I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I’d be the very monster I was protecting her from.
She didn’t know it was me.
She didn’t know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.
I may as well have given her the mark on her finger.
The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.
Because we don’t sin in silence.
And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.
My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.
And when she found out–I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.
Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.
The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled.
We both carry scars.
But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.
I’ll take it.
Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato’s perfect angel would pick me–over her perfect life.
“I broke you,” I confessed.
“The worst part… is that you liked it,” she snapped right back.
Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.

I just want to stand up and give this amazing author a hand. RVD seriously kept me wanting more with this book. It’s full of twists and turns I never saw coming. Just when I thought I had this story figured out…boom…RVD blows my mind all over again.
This is Violet and Breaker’s story. I love the girl Violet was. She’s such a relatable girl. She’s quiet…the book nerd, but don’t let that fool you. She has a fiercely protective side as well. Breaker is loyal and ruthless. He’s been charged with keeping Violet safe. While their love is forbidden, that doesn’t mean that feelings and a relationship can’t develop. These two have the odds stacked against them. They broke my heart, but as this book went on RVD put me back together and made me whole again.
I love RVD and how she can make me fall in love with the scary mafia world. I’m very picky when it comes to my mafia books, but RVD is one of my go-to reads. She makes these characters relatable and witty. I love that about her. I can’t wait for more in this series.
Solitude and motor oil meets soul food and wariness
I’m a grease-stained enigma.
A watcher, a protector, an ex-con, and a mechanic.
My name is Brick.
I’m old enough to know good things come to those who wait, and hungry enough to go after what I want.
I am a proud independent.
A nurturer, a cook, a casualty, and a grandparent.
My name is Lisa.
I’m cautious enough to keep my distance, and too wise to let a chance at love pass me by.
We seem unmatched—in race, in history, in lifestyle—but when tragedy leaves a baby in our care and a target on our backs, we discover the strength of family.
USA Today bestselling author Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; she creates characters who are perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills in their lives.
Recipient of the ReadFREE.ly 2019 Best Book We’ve Read All Year Award for “Covering Ollie, the 2015 RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for Best First Book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the 2017 Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
You all know how much I love Freya Barker and all of her books. I love getting lost in her world. This book was suspenseful, gut-wrenching, and perfect. It’s everything I’ve come to expect from Freya and so much more. As with all of Freya’s books, I couldn’t put this down. I wanted more with each page turn.
This is Brick and Lisa’s story. I feel like I waited a lifetime for these two. These two have put off letting their feelings free for what seems like forever. When tragedy strikes, Brick and Lisa find their way to each other. While I never would ask for tragedy to hurt characters, I fall in love with these two, they kind of needed it to make them realize they were missing out on something great.
I loved everything about this book. I know I say it with each book, but I think this was my favorite. I loved getting lost in Brick and Lisa. I loved watching them overcome. I can’t wait to see what Freya has in store for us next. I can’t wait to fall in love with more of her writing and characters.

It has the perfect balance of suspense, chemistry, and sexy. I love Wren and Whitney together. Talk about a match made in gaming heaven. I loved the nerd component to this book. That being said I loved Wren’s alpha side. I kind of didn’t expect it, which I think made this book.

J. Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and #1 International bestselling author of over one hundred novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A six time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy) and in 2017 for Wicked Dirty in the same category. Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development as a television show.
Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.
