Fate shows girl who’s boss and turns her world and plans upside down without breaking a sweat.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J. Kenner comes a new story in her Stark Ever After series…

Each day with Damien is a miracle, each moment with our children a gift. And yet I cannot escape the growing sense that a storm is gathering, threatening to pull me away, to rip us apart. To drag me down, once again, into a darkness to which I swore never to return.

I have to fight it—I know that. And I am waging the battle with of all my heart. But it is Damien who is my strength, and we both know that the only way to push away the darkness is for him to fold me in his arms and claim me completely. And for me to surrender myself, once again, to the fire that burns between us.





Caine McKannon is all about rules. As the Raven Riders Sergeant-at-Arms, he prizes loyalty to his brothers and protection of his club. As a man, he takes pleasure wherever he can get it but allows no one close—because distance is the only way to ensure people can’t hurt you. And he’s had enough pain for a lifetime.

And then he rescues a beautiful woman from an attack.

Kids and school are kindergarten teacher Emma Kerry’s whole life, so she’s stunned to realize she has an enemy—and even more surprised to find a protector in the intimidating man who saved her. Tall, dark, and tattooed, Caine is unlike any man Emma’s ever known, and she’s as uncertain of him as she is attracted. As the danger escalates, Caine is in her house more and more – until one night of passion lands him in her bed.

But breaking the rules comes at a price, forcing Caine to fight dirty to earn a chance at love.

Combust by K. Bromberg ~ Review




From New York Times Bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new standalone book. Just how hot will firefighter Grady Malone turn up the heat?

Songwriter Dylan McCoy has been burned.

By her boyfriend she found in her bed... with someone else.

By the contract she signed that obligates her to work with him until the songs for his new album are complete.

By her agent when she asked Dylan to keep their breakup on the down-low.

When she finds herself in Sunnyville, she refuses to let her new roommate burn her too. Still... a rebound has never looked so good.

That’s her first thought when she sees firefighter Grady Malone. Sexy. Charismatic. Unapologetic. He’s a man who carries his own scars — the ones on his back, the survivor’s guilt on his soul, and the fear in his heart.

When an unexpected visitor puts their roommate status to the test, will their undeniable attraction burn out, or will they both take a chance and play with fire?










 I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Cuffed,  and was excited to read this one.   But I found that I enjoyed this one MORE than the first.

Okay, lets get this out of the way.  There is this scene pretty early on that had me stunned.  That did not just happen.  Grady?  Really?  You did not just encourage her to do that.  I was sure he would stop her.  He didn't.  And I wasn't sure I could read on.  BUT WAIT.  I won't spoil it but I will say that it wasn't what I thought.  It moved the story in a way nothing else would have.  AND I ended up loving this one more that the first book.

Grady.  Oh Grady.  He's a broken man that puts on a great face.  A sexy face, actually.  Just meeting him, you'd never know the pain inside him.  But Dylan doesn't just meet him.  She's staying at his house trying to get over the dumb jerk of a rock star boyfriend while writing said rock star new songs.  Yeah, she's not pleased about it either.  But that's why she's not in LA, why she's retreated to a friend of her brothers for some much needed time away.  And let the house party begin.

I love Dylan.  She's so real to me.  Broken from a betrayal and with lots of self-image issues, she just wants to finish these songs and move on with her life.  Away from Jet the jerk.  But the studio knows she's the Jet whisperer.  She's the only way the album will happen.  So she's stuck.  And she needs the money.  So.  But the thing about Dylan is that she sees Brokie.  She gets him.  Weeks of living in the same house creates a contention between them.  A little faking it (I love that part) brings the sexy into the picture and then the growth begins.

These two heal each other.  As they see each others pain, they try to help the other see who they really are.  It's a great healing experience for the reader as well.  People are way too hard on themselves.  They accept the petty comments/actions of others and magnify that a 100% to become their own negative self-image.  But when you clear the lens and see what's real, surprise is there.  That's the best part of this story.

Yes, there are amazing sexy times.  Yes, there are ups and downs.  Yes, there are great characters that I connected to.  Yes, those characters make some much needed growth.  Yes, there is an amazing story that I loved.  But the most important thing about this book is the self-image overhaul that happens.  Such a nice, refreshing change from the average romance stories.  A step above, that's what this one is.

Can definitely be read stand alone, this one is by far my favorite.

SIGNED copy Lady Alexandra's Lover by Helen Hardt
A Duke Changes Everything by Christy Carlyle





Lady Alexandra MacIntyre has made up her mind. Having grown up in near poverty, she's marrying for money—a lot of money—and she’ll do anything to achieve her goal...even get herself caught in a compromising situation by her overprotective and smugly conventional—although achingly handsome—new stepbrother, Lord Evan Xavier.

Evan, the second son of the Earl of Brighton, considers Alexandra a genuine pain in his arse. She's beautiful, yes, but also headstrong and lacking in social graces and respect for authority. Unfortunately, while his father and her mother are away on their wedding trip, she is his responsibility. When she announces her plan to travel to London, he has no choice but to go along as her protector.

When the two are stranded after a carriage accident, circumstances spiral out of control, and the heat between them can’t be denied. Rescue is on its way, but Alexandra still has her own agenda…



 



In the first novel in Christy Carlyle’s sizzling Duke’s Den series, three men, intent on making a fortune, discover irresistible opportunities . . .

Nicholas Lyon gambled his way into a fortune and ownership of the most opulent, notorious gentlemen’s club in England. But when Nick’s cruel brother dies, he inherits a title he never wanted. The sooner Nick is rid of the estate that has always haunted him, the sooner he can return to the life he’s built in London. But there’s one obstacle—the exquisite Thomasina Thorne.

When the new heir to the Tremayne dukedom suddenly appears in Mina Thorne’s life, she’s flustered. Not only is he breathtakingly handsome, but he’s also determined to take away her home and position as steward of the Enderley estate. If Mina learns what makes the enigmatic duke tick, perhaps she can change his mind—as long as she doesn’t get too close to him.

With each day Nick spends with Mina, his resolve weakens as their colliding wills lead to explosive desire. Could she be the one woman who can help him finally bury the ghosts of his past?
