The don elle raven aimie jennison

blurb

Warning: This book contains violence, excessive language, and strong sexual content. It’s intended to be read by mature audiences.

Power. Greed. Revenge. Submission.
Sierra Winters never planned on falling for the most powerful man in Sydney.
One minute, she’s an everyday twenty-eight-year-old, working class office girl. The next, she’s being blackmailed by Sebastiano Morassi, Sydney’s influential crime family boss, to settle her brother’s debts.
Sierra knows she should never have gone to him to ‘save’ her brother but she is captivated by him. His monstrous size, his malicious evil glare and more frightening is the scar, which marks his left cheek. Never has she met or seen anyone like him. The more time she spends with this frightening yet captivating man, the harder it becomes to want to escape.
Sebastiano Morassi is pure danger. So why does she crave him? He can make her tremble with fear and make her hairs stand on end, but he also has a sweetness to him, which tugs at her heart. Sierra soon finds herself merged into his world full of murder, revenge, and deceit.

Pucked (The Pucked Series Book 1) – Helena Hunting

pucked Helena hunting

blurb

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn’t interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. When Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

Suffering from a complete lapse in judgment, Violet discovers just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. Violet believes her night of orgasmic magic with Alex is just that: one night. But Alex starts to call. And text. And email and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts. Suddenly, he’s too difficult to ignore, and nearly impossible not to like.

The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.

Love Hacked (Knitting in the City Book 3) – Penny Reid

love hacked penny reid

blurb

There are three things you need to know about Sandra Fielding: 1) She makes all her first dates cry, 2) She hasn’t been kissed in over two years, and 3) She knows how to knit.

Sandra has difficulty removing her psychotherapist hat. Of her last 30 dates, 29 have ended the same way: the man sobbing uncontrollably. After one such disaster, Sandra–near desperation and maybe a little tipsy–gives in to a seemingly harmless encounter with her hot waiter, Alex. Argumentative, secretive, and hostile Alex may be the opposite of everything Sandra knows is right for her. But now, the girl who has spent all her life helping others change for the better, must find a way to cope with falling for someone who refuses to change at all.

This is a full-length, 110k word novel and is the third book in the Knitting in the City series. All books in the series can be read as a standalone.

Stormking Road (Firefly Hollow Series Book 6) – T.L. Haddix

stormking road haddix

blurb

This book is a romance. It’s a man + woman = love story. Insta-love? No. Impertinence? Yes. Sex within the first few chapters? Um, no (that comes later). Steamy tension building? Oh, yeah. And lots of interfering family members with good intentions.

Sydney Campbell Gibson is all grown up now. Divorced and mostly over it, she returns home to Hazard, Kentucky, ready to get on with her life. She wants a husband, a family. What she has is a new job with a man who didn’t want to hire her. As if that weren’t mortifying enough, she has a crush on her boss, has had for years. She even kissed him when she was nineteen, but then she ran away.

As for Sawyer Evans? He’s divorced, as well. Retired from the state police, he’s set up shop as a private investigator, and he’s up to his eyeballs in paperwork with no one to turn to for help. Sawyer’s way too old for Sydney–his opinion, not hers–regardless of the fact that she’s a fully grown woman whose attractiveness he can’t deny. She’s definitely no longer the surly teenager he nearly arrested twice, as much as he almost wished she was. Besides, her family would never approve, even if he and Sydney could move past his inability to have children.

But then there’s this chemistry that starts burning between them. And suddenly neither of them is sure of anything anymore except their growing need for one another.

*This book also contains the bonus 25-page short story “Archer’s Cat.”

Cricket Cover (Firefly Hollow Series Book 5) – T.L. Haddix

cricket cover haddix

blurb

The baby of the family, a shapeshifter, Daddy’s little girl… a lonely woman who deeply, desperately longed to be loved. Amelia Campbell was all that and so much more. A natural Cupid, she’d paired up several couples through the years. The only person she couldn’t seem to find a mate for was herself. Until Logan Gibson came along… the last person in the world she should fall for.

Logan was as far from Amelia in life experiences as he could be. Battle-scarred and life-hardened, he was having trouble reconciling himself to life as a civilian. He’d seen too much of the dark side of people to believe in what she represented, and he just wanted to be left alone. Instead, he found himself returning to her time and again.

Amelia was well aware he’d never choose someone like her. Logan knew she was too young, too innocent for him. But despite that knowledge, they were drawn to each other. When danger rears its ugly head, it takes both of them to figure out a way to protect her, and when the inevitable happens, all they can do is hold on to each other and hope to survive.

Cattail Ridge (Firefly Hollow Series Book 4) – T.L. Haddix

cattail ridge haddix

blurb

After a cutting betrayal by the father of her child, Emma Campbell swore off men. Convinced she’d never find the kind of love her parents had, Emma devoted her life to raising her daughter and building her business. Surrounded by a close-knit family who loved her, she ignored her loneliness. Until the day family friend Archer Gibson kissed her.

Archer had been in love with Emma since the first day he’d laid eyes on her five years ago. He’d never acted on that love, not feeling worthy of Emma’s attention, but now that he’d made some changes in his life, he was ready to go after what he wanted most–a place in her life and in her heart. His biggest obstacle? Convincing Emma they both deserved a chance at happiness.
