Model Behavior

by Chloe Morgan


I’m soon to become a plus-sized model entrepreneur.

It’ll be my business to know curves, but this new model we brought on is going to be the end of me.

Money was the name of the game when I started this venture, but now, I’m tied up in knots.

This woman has my mind in places it doesn’t belong, at least not in the office.

Her curves. Her passion. The fire behind her eyes.

I can’t get her out of my mind, and I sure as hell don’t want her out of my bed.

But life doesn’t always play fair.

A few bad decisions later, I’m losing my grip on the one thing I want most.

Her and our secret baby she's carrying.

Sons Of Wrath Box Set: Books 1-3

by Keri Lake


Get ready for a steamy paranormal romance series like no other.

Seven brothers, all sons of the demon prince, Wrath.
Strong.
Powerful.
Deadly.
Each has a brand of pain to exact vengeance, and an insatiable desire to find his mate.

An ancient enemy has awakened, threatening both the demon and human realms. Bonds will be broken, love tested, and loyalties destroyed.

SOUL AVENGED (Book 1):

Passion is blind in vengeance and love …

Ayden’s suburban home was invaded by a pack of Lycans.
The brutal attack is the only memory she carries of her former life.
Now, one motive burns in her soul:

KILL THEM ALL.

The Sons of Wrath—a brood of vengeance-dealing warrior demons—band with Ayden to hunt the Lycans on Detroit’s most deadly feeding grounds.
Kane Walker should’ve been her easiest kill.
Unfortunately, the newly bitten Lycan has something she wants—clues that may finally lay her past to rest. To reach them, she must be willing to submit to the sensual pleasures awakened by his touch.

Time is running out.

In seven days, Kane will become what Ayden despises most. She can halt his transformation but the antidote requires the ultimate sacrifice. As the beast takes hold, Kane becomes more of a threat.
Ayden must choose between her lust for revenge, or surrender to her enemy and discover a horrible truth.



SOUL RESURRECTED (Book 2):

As Wrath’s fiercest son, Logan carries the scars of fifty years spent in the most dreaded prison of the underworld, for a sin he’d kill to keep secret. Enduring decades of gruesome torture has left Logan feared by and detached from others, until a female Alexi’s blood resurrects his soul from death and, with it, the pleasures he’s been denied for so long.

Plagued by shame of her own, Calla is drawn to the ruthless demon, Logan, whose insatiable craving for her touch rouses buried passions and, for once, leaves her feeling desired.

A dark and dangerous evil has been reawakened, however, and when Calla is drawn too close to its breeding grounds, Logan vows to summon the violence of Wrath in order to keep her safe. First, though, Calla must save him from a past riddled with deceit and corruption … but only if she can accept the chilling consequences of unearthing his vilest skeleton.


SOUL ENSLAVED (Book 3):

Imprisonment in Obsidius. Enslavement to a soul-sucking succubus. A reproductive cycle that’d send a sex fiend running into the arms of celibacy. Given the choice, most demons would opt for death.
Gavin, eldest son of Wrath, has been sentenced to all three.
When the succubus decides its time to collect, though, he fears his nightmares have only just begun.

And Sabelle’s timing couldn’t be worse.
With a bad case of uncontrollable lust, thanks to his Savidon, the last thing Gavin wants is a vengeful succubus stoking his darkest desires, but debts must be paid—he just didn’t bank on enjoying his punishment so much.
Because the swinging bachelor may have found his perfect mate in the sexy seductress.
However, just as things seem to be looking up, past sins resurface, plunging the two into a deadly game of power and deception. As their worst fears merge into one unexpected threat, Gavin is determined to protect Sabelle and win her freedom.

At any cost.

One night was all we had.
He’s a gorgeous doctor on a mission to save the world.
I’m a secretary that’s just trying to make ends meet…

Accidental Love

by Mia Ford

He was like my brother. I never meant to fall for him.
But you can't choose who you love. Even when everyone's against it.
 
Remy was my protector. At least, that's how I always saw him. The brother I never had.
Till we got drunk one night and things took a very un-brotherly turn.
His sharp blue eyes went from sweet to mesmerizing, and his lips suddenly turned very, very kissable.
I still don't know what I was thinking.
All I know is that it was the best night of my life.
But Remy was so messed up. No way would he ever remember what happened. 
So I pretended like it hadn't changed my life.
But pretending and forgetting are two different things.
Now I'm back. And I still want him. 
I just have one question... does he still want me?

Saved by a Cowboy: A Western Romance

by Julia Daniels

 

Can a city girl on the run find safety in the arms of a rancher?


Chicago restaurant owner Sabrina Marconi needs to hide. And fast. She just sent a mob boss to prison. A competition to become the cook on a cattle ranch in Nebraska might just be the safe haven this city girl is looking for. With a new name, Laura Marshall, and a new life, everything is going according to plan. Until she meets the ranch owner.

Ranch owner Caleb Kirkpatrick is a single dad with too much on his plate. The latest ranch expansion means he needs someone to cook for his men.

The drama among the competing women is almost more than Caleb can handle. He’s got his hands full with missing equipment and dead cattle. But Laura isn’t like the others, and despite his best intentions, his feelings for her are growing. What is the secret she’s hiding? Will she ever trust him enough to allow them to have a future together? And will her Chicago past chase her down in rural Nebraska?

Sorry Not Sorry: The perfect laugh out loud romantic comedy

by Sophie Ranald


OMG THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ROMANCE BOOKS I’VE EVER READI literally laughed out loud because it is just too relatable and too funnyReminds me of Sophie Kinsella… CANNOT wait to read more books from this author!!’ Bookish Bibliophile, 5 stars

Is this all there is? I scraped the last dregs of Caramel Chew Chew ice cream out of the bottom of the tub with my finger and licked it. It left a sticky smear on my phone’s screen when I typed into Google, “How to find love, sex and happiness.”

Charlotte has always been a good girl. But being good is getting boring…

She’s not just stuck in a rut – she’s buried in it up to her chin. The only company she has in bed is the back catalogue of Netflix and falling in love feels like the stuff of fairy tales. So when she stumbles across a popular podcast, ‘Sorry Not Sorry’, which challenges women to embrace their inner bad girl, she jumps at the chance to shake things up.

Old Charlotte would never ask for a stranger’s number, go on a blind date or buy lacy lingerie… But New Charlotte is waving goodbye to her comfort zone (with a side order of margaritas). And it turns out that good things happen to bad girls…

A fabulously feel-good novel that will make you laugh till you cry and leave you living life to the full, margarita in hand! If you’re a fan of romantic comedies by Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk or Matt Dunn, and love TV shows like Girls, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin, you won’t be able to put down this hilarious read.

The Billionaire's Unexpected Wife #1

by Ali Parker


As soon as I saw her, I knew I had to have her.

I thought this Vegas fundraiser was going to be boring—another obligation to keep the family business alive.

Boy, was I wrong.

Only problem is, I don’t believe in true love. And she doesn’t seem to, either.

But this could work out for both of us.

I need someone to stop my traditional Greek family from nagging me about settling down, and she could use some cash for reasons she doesn’t care to disclose.

I know a good deal when I see one.

This is book 1 of a trilogy. You will have to purchase book 2 and 3 to finish the story.

I always get what I want. Every time.

But not with her.

The beautiful woman my father forced on me through our billion-dollar firm has curves that make me ache.

There’s no way in hell she’s giving in. No matter what I try.

Not even when Valentine’s rolls around. And I pull out all the stops.

Her denial has me needing her like I’ve never needed anyone else.

Where this girl is concerned, I’m not asking for a friend.

I’m asking for me. For today. Tomorrow. Forever.
