Definition of the "Romantic Suspense Genre": The Romantic Suspense genre is oftentimes the bestselling subgenre of Romance, though that can vascillate with historical romance. The elements of a romance need to be there--a budding relationship between two people that overcomes obstacles and succeeds in the end. But, the critical elements of suspense in that romance setting also need to be interwoven expertly. Those include action, adventure, and oftentimes, a heroine that has been wronged and a hero who attempts to help right that wrong. Through their work to right the wrong, they are brought closer together and what would you know? They fall in love. Honestly, you can think of many, many Disney movie scripts for this storyline (start with Frozen).
Some examples of the top ebooks in the Romantic Suspense genre are Mary Stewart (Nine Coaches Waiting), Tiffany Snow (No Turning Back), Colleen Hoover (Never, Never), and Melinda Leigh (She Can Run).
After six years of focusing on her career, Natalie Armstrong craves the peace and tranquility that only Sapphire Bay can give her. But returning to her grandparents' cottage isn't as easy as she imagined. No one told her about her houseguest or the unexpected changes in the small town she calls home.
Gabe Lanigan is a former NYPD detective. His new career as a bestselling crime writer has brought him everything he didn't want--fame, fortune, and a deep distrust of strangers. When Natalie arrives in Sapphire Bay, their unlikely friendship sparks into something he never expected. But he needs to be careful. The real reason he left New York City is closing in fast and Natalie is standing in his way.
FALLING FOR YOU is the first book in the Sapphire Bay series and can easily be read as a standalone. Each of Leeanna's series are linked so you can find out what happens to your favorite characters in other books. Happy reading!

With her hunger.
Ella knows she should run, even if this deadly enemy was once a friend. Even if his scent drags up a dark, forbidden longing. Even if his kisses are the sweetest, filthiest thing she’s ever tasted in her life…
But will Ella truly risk her perfect future, for an orc? Will she face the bitter truths of the past, and brave the terrifying Orc Mountain, before more war rises to destroy them all?

Faking it never felt so real in this falling-for-his-best-friend's-sister romance...
Nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me at the charity auction.
Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.
She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend.
Then my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he's negotiating my contract.
What happens next when faking it starts to feel all too real?

A taste of the first book in this collection:
I’m not always proud of the man I am, but when you grow up in a crime family, there aren’t a lot of options.
I do what I have to do, and more than often, I crave it.
Everything about her was tempting. Her beautiful eyes that pierced into me, her body that was made for sin.
She came to pay off a debt, but I wanted more.
She’s a good girl who never should have walked through that door.
I never should have touched her, but now that I have, I can’t stop.
I’ll push her boundaries, she’ll cave to temptation.
We’ll both forget about the danger.
And that’s a mistake I can’t afford…
She’s texting him her heart. But she’s got the wrong number…
When Isabel “El” Watson applied for a sales job with her company, she had no idea a jelly donut would explode on her blouse, or that her grumpy boss would practically laugh her out of the interview. Accountants could be salespeople, she was sure of it, even if that jerkface didn’t think so.
So when a lady at the local wine festival offers her a sales job on the spot at a new boutique winery, El jumps at the chance. She also jumps at the chance to text with the guy who danced with her at the festival. Life was finally looking up.
Boston’s friend, Chad, never should have given Boston’s number to the girl at the wine festival as a joke, but the damage was done. When El sends Boston a text later that night, believing he is Chad, he’s too nice to hurt her feelings by telling her the truth. But there are a few other truths Boston might have thought about:
Truth #1: He’s her boss
Truth #2: She just accepted a job at his mother’s new winery
Truth #3: He’s always had a crush on her
Even though Boston is no longer El’s grumpy boss, they still work together at his mom’s winery. And while sparks are flying as they get to know each other for real, El’s kind of sweet on the guy who always seems to know just what to say via text too.
Obviously, things will come to a head.
Will Boston come clean about the flirty texts being from him? Or will El figure out on her own that she’s been Texting With the Enemy?
From two USA Today bestselling authors, a RomCom so sweet you'll want to hug your kindle and never look at texting the same way.

Authors Mara White and Suanne Laqueur challenged a diverse and eclectic group, from international best-sellers to debut authors, to titillate on their own terms, but in 1,500 words or less. The result is a sizzling collection of flash fiction stories, dedicated to both the writers and readers who struggled with creativity in the last year.
It comes as no surprise that readers everywhere are eager to have their senses teased by erotic fiction, as imagined by people whose experiences, identities and persuasions may—or may not—mirror their own. Such stories arouse, satisfy and offer intimate glimpses into different relationships and provocative couplings. The twist of Flesh Fiction is to do it in under three pages.
Whether you’re reading on the run, or settled in for hours, Flesh Fiction has plenty of time. Anything goes in this eclectic, inclusive compendium, and it’s the wish of White and Laqueur that the small love bites will bring joy, whet appetites and inspire new visions.

So when the mystery driver rescues Maya with the suggestion that she cheers herself up at a nearby beach town, she jumps at the chance to get things back on track. She wasn't expecting a personalised itinerary or the easy companionship that comes from opening up to a stranger via text, let alone the possibility it might grow into something more...
