Tides of Desire: A Christmas Romance (Garrett Brothers: Caleb Book 3)

by Tracy Sumner


An irresistible affair that started with a kiss. TIDES OF DESIRE, the steamy Christmas sequel to TIDES OF PASSION!

The feisty beauty who imagined a solitary life…

Spirited physician Macy Dallas is fervently committed to medicine, but a troubled past has kept her from committing to love. She’s never experienced ardent yearning for a man until she kisses Caleb Garrett…and her awakening passion is impossible to resist.

The jaded man who vowed to protect his heart…

A gifted boatbuilder who is dedicated only to the sea, Caleb doesn’t believe in the power of love. A wretched childhood has governed his life until he doesn’t believe he has anything to offer. A beguiling puzzle, Macy challenges his fears, and he considers giving in to their explosive passion. Even though he knows he’s not the man she deserves.

An irresistible affair that started with a kiss…

As they match wits in a tempestuous dance, their fortifications begin to crumble, revealing not only a fiery attraction but a deepening love. Soon, what should have been a simple seduction becomes deliciously complicated…as they must open their hearts or lose the one person they are desperate to possess.

The Toughest Mission of His Career... Her

The Christmas season isn’t looking great for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live.

This is the last assignment Hunter would pick. Determination and grit have moved him beyond his past in Bariavak. Yet, here it is standing in front of him again, refusing to be ignored. … Just like his reactions to April. How can he fight what he’s feeling when they’re together all the time.
King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. Now, comes this lovely young woman bringing joy to his holidays. How can he resist dabbling in some royal matchmaking. Wouldn’t it be delightful if he could give April a Christmas gift she will never forget… Her Prince for a Lifetime

Teach Me New Tricks

by Ali Parker


He’s going to make me break my number one rule.

And possibly lose my job.

How dare he?

It’s pretty simple, though. Don’t date students.

Which is normally easy to stick to. Who wants to date an eighteen-year-old boy?

Not me. I much prefer an older man with rough hands that knows what he’s doing.

Enter Mr. Evans.

A single father billionaire with more time on his plate than he knows what to do with.

And the man is brilliant and wickedly delicious.

Much to my surprise, he’s quickly becoming my star pupil, which means he gets more of my time than necessary.

But I can’t help myself.

He’s exactly what I need in my life, in my bed, kissing me at the stroke of midnight…

And the best is even though he’s older than me, he’s more than willing to let me teach him a few new tricks.

Let's just hope we don't get caught.

Tasting Her Christmas Cookies: A Holiday Romantic Comedy

by Alina Jacobs

 

Winter is coming—and unfortunately it's bringing Christmas with it.

I loathe the holiday. I hate holiday parties, fragrant decorations, and hokey movies. If I had my way it would be winter all year round and never Christmas.

Nothing burns like the cold—except a hot oven.

That's right; against my better judgment I agreed to let The Great Christmas Bake-Off film in my tower.

And St. Nick help me but I even agreed to be a judge.

 

Holly

Christmas is like the perfect sugar cookie—it slowly melts in your mouth, sweetening every taste bud, making you wish it could last forever.

I love Christmas. I love the cheerful music, the fun sweaters, and the holiday lights. Most of all I love Christmas Cookies.

A begrudging bake-off judge, I refuse to let grouchy billionaire Owen Frost hate Christmas. The man is overworked, his employees are uninspired, and his life is seriously lacking in Yuletide cheer. I want to stuff his stocking with sugary goodness to put him in a very festive mood.

So I dressed up as a sexy elf and gave Owen a taste of something extra special. You should have seen his eyes roll back in his head when he bit into the perfect sugar cookie!

I can't let Owen Frost be a distraction. Things are insane enough without a sexy billionaire.

My baking subscription service is in the death throes.

My Christmas-ruining step sister is trying to sabotage me in the bake-off.

I'm being stalked by elves on the shelf come to life.

Ok that last one is a little weird, but welcome to my disaster of a life.

I need to win The Great Christmas Bake-Off to pay of my debts and launch my baking career. Sleeping with one of the judges is going to ruin my chance for a merry Christmas. Owen with his washboard abs and big Christmas package is a bad idea. It's best to keep that all wrapped under the tree.

But when he said in that deep, sexy voice, "Can I have another taste of your Christmas cookies?" Well, let's just say I'm unwrapping one particular Christmas present early!

Tasting Her Christmas Cookies is a standalone holiday romantic comedy. If you love Christmas desserts, like to laugh out loud at holiday innuendoes, and want Santa to put a tall, good-looking guy under your tree, then pick up this full-length, steamy romance novel! There are no cliffhangers but there is a very happy (Christmas!) ever after!

Tempting A Marquess (A Steamy Regency Romance Book 4)

by Georgette Brown

 

How far will this Regency miss go to tempt a marquess?


On the surface, Mildred Abbott is a proper Regency miss. But secretly compromised, she longs to explore the pleasures of the flesh. Engaged to an uninspiring sycophant, she asks the influential nephew of her patroness in debauchery to interfere and break her engagement. When her appeals to him fail, she decides to take a singular opportunity—a visit to the Château Debauchery—to experience one night of pleasure before she submits herself to a life of wedded dullness.


The Marquess of Alastair concerns himself with no one, but to appease his aunt on her birthday, he agrees to select one person whose interests he will look after. It was not his intention to choose the plain and simple Miss Abbott, but when she unexpectedly shows up at the Château Debauchery, his hand is forced. Knowing his aunt to be partial to the miss, he grudgingly decides to act the part of a gentleman and preserve Miss Abbott's honor by removing her from the Château.


But Mildred refuses to go until she has had her night of debauchery…

Magic In The Storm: A Paranormal Regency Romance

by Meredith Bond


From the winner of the Golden Leaf Award for Best Regency, a Regency romance with a twist of magic.

Adriana Hayden paints with a tumultuous passion that her guardian considers unseemly in a proper Regency miss. But when she meets the most handsome, fascinating man she’s ever encountered, the emotions she had only expressed through her art spill over into real life. And when he then unexpectedly joins her in London at the height of the season, puts her life in danger and starts telling her fantastical stories of magical people, she doesn’t know what to think. But she does know that she wants to do everything she can to help him.

Morgan Valentine should have been the most powerful Vallen in England. Instead, he was thrown out of the family’s house when he was a teenager and imprisoned in the forest on their estate. Determined to hone magical powers that should be his, he is only able to shatter his bonds when a beautiful woman appears – to steal his heart and to give him the strength to escape to London.

From a deep forest of magic to the glittering ballrooms of Regency society, will Morgan and Adriana be able to join forces and attain their deepest desires… before time runs out?

"…A character-driven romance with a good dose of magic and adventure thrown into the mix …[with] a genuinely involving romance between two charismatic characters. Magic in the Storm is highly recommended for its inventive plot, strong characterization and excellent writing style. … If you’re a fan of paranormal or historical romances, Magic in the Storm is definitely worth checking out; and if you’re not a fan of these genres, it might be worth giving the book a try anyway. It might just convert you…" David Wendt, IndieBookSpot.com

"This book should be put on people's to be read list. It's a fantastic paranormal read and if you aren’t fan of historical, ignore it for this book please. It was pleasure to read this book, it's a true paranormal romance book... this book is perfect example of what a paranormal romance should [be]." Booked Up

by Diane Holiday


Running from danger, caught by love.

With her life at risk, Sarah Cooper hangs up her ballet shoes and flees her glamorous career in San Diego. She assumes a new identity and takes refuge at a horse ranch in rural Maryland.

Unfortunately, he's also suspicious. Of her.

Bruce Murphy trusts his horses, and since the new ranch hand showed up, they’ve been skittish. Sarah's trouble, and Bruce wants her gone before he loses anyone else he cares about. She challenges him until he can’t decide if he should kiss or shake her. But the more time they spend together, the more he sees the truth: Sarah isn’t trouble, she’s in trouble.

Bruce protects his heart as tightly as Sarah guards her secrets, but they each have something the other needs—Sarah needs Bruce to help her stay alive and Bruce needs Sarah to help him learn to live again.

Escape to Osprey Cove: Book 1 of The Osprey Cove Lodge Series

by Luisa Marietta Gold


What Doug finds in the secret compartment of his new red Corvette will forever change his life. It will also change Catherine’s. Doug and Catherine come from two different worlds. Catherine’s world is one of privilege and wealth. Doug grew up dirt poor and full of envy of others who had the things that he wanted but could not have. His goal was to one day have all the things he coveted. Their worlds collide when Catherine, VP of a large New York City marketing firm, hires Doug. As soon as Doug learns of Catherine’s wealth, he sees Catherine as his ticket to all the things he covets. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married.

Poor boy meets rich girl should have resulted in “happily ever after” — not exactly. Doug quickly learns he also covets independence. Events begin to unfold in each of their lives. For Doug, it is his mysterious discovery in the secret compartment of the Corvette. For Catherine, it is a business meeting with Alex Droxell at the Osprey Cove Lodge. When Catherine enters the beautiful and serene lodge, it’s as though she is entering another place and time. The lodge is an escape from the nightmare she is living back home. Follow the twists and turns of Book 1 of the Osprey Cove Lodge Series. Follow Doug and Catherine’s story to see if there is a “happily ever after” and with whom.

EXCERPT:

It appeared to Catherine as though she had just approached Mr. Darcy’s Pemberly in all its magnificence. Now she knew how Elizabeth felt at her first sighting of Pemberly. But unlike Elizabeth, Catherine thought, there would be no happy ending. This would not become her home one day, as Pemberly had become Elizabeth’s, and live happily ever after. Catherine did not covet the house that lay before her. In fact, Catherine was wealthy enough to buy a home like it, if she so desired. What Catherine did long for was what Pemberly represented to all Jane Austen lovers — the culmination of a beautiful love affair. Catherine was not naive enough to expect her life to be storybook in nature. But she did not expect her life with Doug to disintegrate into shambles just two years after marrying him. She did not understand why it was happening. She did not know how to fix it.

Broken Hero

by London James


Someone please save me.

I was pregnant, afraid, and running for my life.
But then a hero, unlike any other, found me...

Unconscious and on the brink of death.
He picked me up and carried me to his cabin.

My hulk like hero's a reclusive billionaire that's tormented by his past.
He came to this mountain with one desire. To be alone.
But that all changed...
When we crashed into his life.
We became his new obsession.
Taking care of us became his purpose.
But the danger from my past is determined to ruin our future.

The cartel has no idea what Baker is capable of.
There's a reason they call him a Broken Hero.
He's beyond a beast and to protect us he will destroy them.

Forbidden Protector

by Natasha L. Black

I left my badge behind and tried to forget.

When I took a job as bouncer at a biker club, I was just an ex-cop looking for a paycheck and a chance to beat up the drunks who start bar fights.
I never thought I’d be caught in a gang war.Or that my boss’s little sister Connie would be so delicious, so hard to resist.

She’s a tough single mom, a feisty little thing who can take care of herself.
A rival gang makes a threat, and we all go on lock-down in the Twisted Souls compound while a gang war rages.
It’s my job to keep her safe.

Taking a bullet for her would be the easy part.

Letting her anywhere near my broken heart is way more dangerous.
From the first moment I tasted her lips, to our secret trysts inside the compound, where we could be caught at any second, I knew this wildcat of a woman had gotten to me.

Our blazing hot affair grinds to a halt when the enemy kidnaps Connie’s little girl.
I’ll do anything to save her, to bring her back home.
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for Connie.
Even if it means telling her how I really feel...

If I can save her daughter... If I live through the night.

Finding Kate (Shakespeare's Women Speak Book 1)

by Maryanne Fantalis

 

Not even a generous dowry can tempt any man to court Kathryn...

...until Sir William rides into town. Will she give in to becoming his Kate?

Kathryn’s strong will and sharp tongue have branded her a shrew in her small town. And even the temptation of her father’s wealth cannot sway the men in her direction.

Astride his warhorse, William is the pinnacle of manhood and a burr in Kathryn’s side. His impish “Kate” calls raise her hackles, yet she can’t keep from being lulled by his voice.

Though he claims he is the only man for her, she is certain he only desires her rich dowry. When he proposes marriage, she accepts as a way out of her miserable home but expects nothing.

Freed from her cruel family and judgmental town, Kathryn must decide if she will continue her battle of wills with the sometimes charming, often maddening Sir William. Does she remain the shrewish Kathryn or find a way to be Will’s Kate?

This delightful re-imagining of “The Taming of the Shrew” is sure to enchant longtime Shakespeare fans and newcomers alike.

Saving Savannah - A Reverse Harem Romance

by Krista Wolf


Three ripped, 'college hunk' moving men. One sizzling hot game of Truth or Dare. Who would've thought setting up my new apartment could be this much fun?

Just weeks before Halloween, Savannah is starting an all-new life in Salem, Massachusetts. So when her three absolutely gorgeous movers offer to come back later and help break in her new place? Pizza isn't the only thing on the menu.

But her new shop is plagued by trouble, both local and beyond. And when Savannah drags the ghosts of her own haunted past into her shiny new world? It'll take all three of her strapping new boyfriends to keep her safe from harm.

Erik is the wild-eyed tattooed alpha, as fiercely protective as he is strong. Zane the lithe, boyish blond, with a swimmer's abdominals and loyal to a fault. They're rounded out by Roman, olive-skinned and gorgeous - a true Italian Stallion, with shoulders that could carry the world. Together they share the burden of Savannah's protection every bit as much as they share her love, her heart... and her body as well.

Can past mistakes actually be buried, once and for all? Or will Savannah's darkest, forbidden secrets - and her unwillingness to trust - spell out the foursome's ultimate undoing?

SAVING SAVANNAH is a sizzling, stand-alone reverse harem love story filled with humor, suspense, and molten hot action, in single and multiple partner scenes, hot enough to melt your kindle. HEA guaranteed!
