Definition of the "Women's Fiction Genre": The central goal of ebooks in the Women's Fiction genre is to focus on the experience of a woman or group of women. And, those experiences oftentimes relate to adverse experiences the woman goes through, and ultimately prevails over. The story can involve romance, but does not need to and does not necessarily involve romance the majority of the time. The most important part of ebooks in the Women's Fiction genre is that the woman playing the main character experiences personal growth, and oftentimes goes through life-changing events.
Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Women's Fiction Genre are Tracy Brogan (Crazy Little Thing), Lisa Genova (Still Alice), Christina Baker Kline (Orphan Train), and Liane Moriarty (The Husband's Secret).

If you could escape the life your parents chose for you, would you do it?
Horse racing isn’t for nice girls like Alex. She’s been told again and again: stick to horse shows, stick to riding lessons, stick to the relative safety of the suburban equestrian center where she has been a working student since grade school.
But Alex can’t shake the conviction that the Thoroughbred life is her destiny.
When her unstable trainer cuts her off from horses, Alex finally has to obey her instinct to run away from the safe version of life. She heads to Ocala, where horse racing is king, with no plan and no leads on jobs. When she meets handsome, successful racehorse trainer Alexander White, she feels an instant connection with him. Could this be her dream come true?
Falling for Alexander and learning to stay on young racehorses all at once: that’s risky business. But it’s a risk Alex is willing to take — until a storm of emotion threatens to founder her new life. Nothing at Alexander’s gorgeous Thoroughbred farm is as simple as it seems, and she’s not the only one lining up for Alexander’s affection — or his horses.
How many times will Alex obey her urge to run away when things get too real? And what happens to her dreams if she can’t stay the course?

Story contains mature themes and language, and is intended for 18+ readers only.
Two back to back apocalyptic incidents change the world; the first, a nuclear war between America and North Korea, and then, as the world is still reeling from the consequences of that debacle, two pieces of space rock the size of Manhattan slam into the Earth, wiping out billions of people in just minutes, one of them unleashing a deadly pathogen that scatters into the atmosphere. Within months, men are dying off by the millions, and within a year, they are an endangered species. Women, their physiology unaffected by the virus, are forced to take over. They not only save what little remains of the male species, they start to rebuild a new world, a new paradigm, one entirely dominated by women. New international laws are established forbidding men from ever gaining positions of power again, for it is men who are seen as the toxic element, who failed to prevent a nuclear war, who built the war machines, who waged war against one another, and who subjugated women in their patriarchal society. Sixteen years have passed since the first bombs were dropped and the asteroids fell from the sky, when Tanner McNeal, and his intrepid team of space voyagers, return from their mission to Europa, one of Jupiter's moons. When they step back on Earth, they are shocked to find a different world. Tanner and the men of his crew are promptly arrested under the new mandates, and the women of his crew are taken away to be indoctrinated on their roles in the new Utopia. With so few men left alive, most of them in work camps or farm collectives, relegated to laborers for the most part, Tanner discovers who he is up against, Lady V, the President of New America, a woman who hates men so deeply that she has developed an entirely new gender, Woman Ex, and her goal is to eliminate all men forever. Tanner is racing against the clock, as he organizes a grassroots rebellion, a seemingly impossible uprising against Lady V's army, but he soon discovers that many women are on his side, and the battle ensues to save the race of humanity.
Real Laplaine takes you on another rollercoaster ride into a dystopian world of the near-future in this high-concept thriller.

Russell Warnberg, author of 2064
Here is another fascinating book from an author I came to enjoy so much. You know you are reading a great book when it sounds less like fiction and more like hypothetical truth.
A.G. Mogan, author of The Secret Journals of Adolf Hitler
If you want to read a book that is so close to the reality and full of action and also makes you think of what could happen in our lifetime, you won't want to miss this one.
Marina Osipova, author of The Cruel Romance
An utterly captivating and quickly-paced thriller with a clear message behind.
Victoria Ichizli-Bartels - author of Cheerleading for Writers
Despite spilled blood and broken bones, from the ashes Blood Fury will once again rise.
Trip, son of the former president of the Blood Fury MC, is determined to resurrect his dead father's destroyed club. It’ll be a long, difficult road as the new president attempts to rebuild the club from the cold ashes left behind.
Bad blood and bitter memories are only some of the obstacles Trip has to overcome. The local police department, Manning Grove PD, is another, since they don’t want to see their small town once again overrun by outlaw bikers.
Then there’s Stella, a local bar owner and a major distraction Trip doesn’t need, but can’t resist, even though she gives him every reason to. She’s tough, she’s broken, and the last thing she wants in her life is a man like him.
In the end, Trip has to decide if the war is worth fighting. And if Stella is the warrior he needs battling by his side.
Blood & Bones: Trip is the first book in the Blood Fury MC series. As always, this book has no cheating, no cliffhanger and has an HEA. While it’s recommended to read my Brothers in Blue series first, it’s not necessary.
West Golden—so easy to hate, yet so hard to resist.
Don’t let that pretty face of his fool you. He isn’t the boy next door, or the kind you trust with your heart. He’s the devil in designer jeans, with all the charm of a bona fide psycho.
He swears I did something to cross him before I even stepped foot inside Cypress Prep, but it’s a lie. No one knows better than me that I’m all out of chances. One more misstep and I can kiss my future goodbye, which means I can’t possibly be guilty of whatever he thinks I’ve done.
West marks me with a target anyway, and as this town’s football star, no one dares to go against him. His money, status, and the loyalty of his equally entitled brothers makes him seem untouchable. Only, I know better than that.
This false god isn’t infallible like he wants the world to believe. Whenever I stare into those devilish green eyes, I see it plain as day. The chink in his armor. His one and only weakness.
The King of Cypress Prep has finally met his match, and taking him down just became an inside job.
The Golden Boys are all smokin’ hot, but there’s only one guy for Blue Riley, which means this romance isn’t a reverse harem. Also, full disclosure, this saga does contain strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (well … eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the book for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.
This series is sure to give you GOSSIP GIRL and ONE TREE HILL vibes, and the angst will keep you burning through the pages to find out what happens next. One-click and get lost in this series today!
RJ & NT
Billionaire Preston Clarke conquered my bed and stole my heart.
If only he hadn't broken it and walked into the office a year later… as my new boss.
I know, I know. It's my fault for falling for a filthy rich and obscenely handsome Manhattan type.
Silly of me to think Preston had something more beneath his immaculate suit than just a chiseled body.
But what a body. I still wake up sweating from dreams about the night we shared.
I thought knowing I'll never experience one again was torture enough. I was wrong.
Because working with him every single day is definitely worse.
I hate that he thinks he can order me around or that he still thinks I belong to him.
And I really hate that he stays late in the office when I try to bury myself in work to stop thinking about him.
Most of all though, I hate seeing glimpses of the man I once believed he was.
Hints of true passion and charm beneath Mr. Billionaire's stone-cold demeanor.
But it doesn't matter how many evenings we spend together in the office.
There is absolutely no way I'm falling for him again.
No cheating, no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed!
A heartbroken American writer. A shy English lord. Can they plot a new destiny in each other’s arms?
Merle Walker is still stinging from betrayal. After her treacherous boyfriend steals the credit for her award-winning screenplay, she flees LA to her friend’s remote English cottage to lick her wounds. But when her BFF’s brother turns out to be a devilishly handsome and polite English noble, she can’t ignore the instant attraction.
Lord Robert Chissholm worries his ex-wife is right: he’s as dull as dry toast. He’s sure he has no chance with a gorgeous and glamorous Hollywood screenwriter. But along with her charm, he’s quite taken by her latest work delving into one of Britain’s finest wartime moments.
Though she lands a deal for her new project, Merle fears she’s too common for her old-fashioned gentleman. And pressure mounts for Lord Robert to return to Parliament—and abandon his sweet American beauty in favor of a politically savvy reunion with his cruel ex-wife.
Is this the final scene for their love, or will they pen their own happily-ever-after?
The Courtship of Merle Walker is a delightful standalone contemporary romance. If you like picturesque English countryside’s, shy British noblemen, and hearts determined to heal, you’ll adore Annette Drake’s transatlantic tale.
Snowball--an aptly named bundle of feline fluff--is thankful to be spending her first Christmas in the comfort of Weber Haus, the Victorian B&B run by Miss Tilly. Emily Diemer, who cooks for the guests, dotes on Snowball, but she's not thrilled about another new arrival at the B&B: Miss Tilly's nephew, Lukas. Which is odd, because Snowball's animal instincts tell her that Lukas and Emily should definitely be friends.
Everything Emily needs is in this quaint community--including, she hopes, the chance to open her own bakery one day. She doesn't think much of Lukas for leaving his aging aunt to struggle while he jets around the world taking photographs. But now that he's here, helping to spruce up the property and getting mixed up in Snowball's antics, she begins to soften a little. Until she learns what he has planned . . .
Lukas is going to sell Weber Haus so that Miss Tilly can retire. But Snowball is certain that this B&B, and these people, are supposed to be her forever home. Somehow she has to get these stubborn humans to see things through the wisdom of a cat's eye and a kitten's loyal, loving heart . . .
"Expertly crafted...the perfect Christmas treat."

An epic saga from New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Dray based on the true story of an extraordinary castle in the heart of France and the remarkable women bound by its legacy.
Most castles are protected by men. This one by women.
A founding mother...
1774. Gently-bred noblewoman Adrienne Lafayette becomes her husband, the Marquis de Lafayette’s political partner in the fight for American independence. But when their idealism sparks revolution in France and the guillotine threatens everything she holds dear, Adrienne must renounce the complicated man she loves, or risk her life for a legacy that will inspire generations to come.
A daring visionary...
1914. Glittering New York socialite Beatrice Chanler is a force of nature, daunted by nothing—not her humble beginnings, her crumbling marriage, or the outbreak of war. But after witnessing the devastation in France firsthand, Beatrice takes on the challenge of a lifetime: convincing America to fight for what's right.
A reluctant resistor...
1940. French school-teacher and aspiring artist Marthe Simone has an orphan's self-reliance and wants nothing to do with war. But as the realities of Nazi occupation transform her life in the isolated castle where she came of age, she makes a discovery that calls into question who she is, and more importantly, who she is willing to become.
Intricately woven and powerfully told, The Women of Chateau Lafayette is a sweeping novel about duty and hope, love and courage, and the strength we take from those who came before us.
A widower with two adorable boys and a Bohemian beauty who owns the local café are brought together in this emotional, heartwarming novel in Donna Alward’s Darling, VT series.
Widower Ethan Gallagher’s biggest challenge is just making it day to day. A single father to two adorable boys and a firefighter, he juggles work and parenthood with the help of his family. But life without his wife is even harder to navigate. When he’s injured on a call and put off work until he’s healed, he finds himself at loose ends. And that leads him to volunteering at the temporary food bank site and puts him face to face with Willow Dunaway, owner of the Purple Pig Café and the woman in charge of the project.
After a particularly rough childhood followed by years away from Darling, Willow has come home and started a business she’s passionate about. She’s worked hard at finding inner peace and serenity, but Ethan challenges that at every turn, making her realize there are still things she hasn’t dealt with. The passion between them is incendiary, and she also finds herself falling for his little boys, which resurrects all sorts of memories she thought she’d put behind her.
But when Willow’s deepest secret is finally revealed, their fragile happiness is threatened. You can’t have love without trust, and how can you trust when falling in love is the most frightening thing of all?

Reluctantly, they agree to go on the date, which ends up being a train wreck largely because Nick was an arrogant jerk. However, despite a rough start, Kate and Nick are drawn to each other. Their relationship is getting serious until Nick finds out that Kate may not be dating him for love, but just for the money.
