by Bethany Lopez


USA Today Bestselling Author Bethany Lopez brings you an all-new trilogy about getting a second chance at love later in life. Follow Whitney, Summer, and Margo as they experience the good, bad, and ugly of dating again in your thirties and forties. Join them in The Jilted Wives Club.

When at first you fail at love, medicate with Dirty Martinis…

Summer has always tried to look on the bright side of things. Sure, her ex-husband was a liar and a cheater, but that didn’t mean all men were untrustworthy, right? Maybe the problem wasn’t her, but the type of man she’s always going for.

Noah would rather spend his nights at home with a good book than out navigating the dating scene. Women like Summer have always terrified him and there’s no denying she’s way out of his league. But when she keeps popping up everywhere it becomes harder and harder to deny their chemistry.

Summer wants to prove she’s more than a Trophy Wife. Sure, she’s sexy, sweet, and has a body that won’t quit, but she’s so much more, and she’ll do whatever it takes to prove it to Noah.

Has Summer finally met her match, or will Noah leave her crying in her Dirty Martini?

Runaway Alex (Alex and Alexander Book 1)

by Natalie Keller Reinert


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?

The Devil You Know

by Monique Singleton


When Heaven becomes the door to Hell, the only one you can turn to is the Devil.

My father is the self-proclaimed God.
I guess that makes me the Devil.

For hundreds of years my family has hijacked the souls of believers from your world to reincarnate them in my dimension, where they face endless torture in abject slavery.
And that’s just the ones that were promised Heaven.

The worst thing is, they’re helped by your own people. A syndicate of high placed humans, your leaders, sell you out for a cozy second life in our world once they pass over.
I’m committed to bring them down. To expose the biggest scam in human history and to defeat my megalomaniac father.

Helped by a disillusioned priest with a violent tendency and a computer wizard who is much, much more, we are taking on the most powerful organisation known to mankind.
Oh yeah, and my family.

Woman EX: The Death of Patriarchy

by Real Laplaine


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.

The Marquess of Alastair is trying to be a gentleman for a change, but this Regency miss won't take 'no' for an answer!

 

Mildred Abbott is a proper Regency miss, but she cannot deny the dark desires that torment her body in the quiet of night. Engaged to an uninspiring sycophant, she asks the influential nephew of her patroness in debauchery to interfere and break her engagement.

The Survivors (Life After War Book 1)

by Angela White


A Dangerous Destiny

 

Some of the survivors are different, powerful. Their bloodlines have been brought together in this time and place to create safety for the remnants of all societies. Fated to lead and rebuild, these magnetic women and men are now the most valuable commodity in the apocalyptic wastelands.

 

Nuclear war devastated the world just days before Christmas. All governments went underground, leaving their citizens to fend for themselves. The desperate normals who barely managed to stay alive must now make a choice. Do they join the strange, dangerous survivors in forming a more perfect union or do they kill every last one of them? One choice will save the world. The other will finish burying it under the nuclear ashes.

 

Book One centers around the first group of chosen people who find each other amid the relics of America. Brought together by a man with many secrets, they struggle to adapt to an ever-changing new world while trying to build the first post-war safe haven for humanity.

 

This is Safe Haven

“We offer food, shelter, and protection to all survivors. Does anyone copy? …hello? Is anyone alive out there?”

 

The end of the world has given humanity a harsh, merciless existence, where nature tries hard to push us to the very brink of extinction. Everything is against us, between us. Untold miles of lawless, apocalyptic roads wait for our feet, and the future, cold and dark, offers little comfort. Without change, there can be no peace—only survivors.
