I thought I
had it all until he came back.
Julian
Caine, my childhood friend, was a short, scrawny thirteen-year-old boy with
thick glasses and a mouthful of braces the last time I saw him.
Fourteen
years later, he’s no longer an awkward teen.
He’s all man.
A.  Beautiful.
Staggering.  Drop-dead.  Gorgeous.
Man.
This is
more than a fleeting attraction.  I’ve
spent too many sleepless nights obsessing
over him while my fiancé sleeps next to me.
Then Julian
makes a proposal I can’t ignore.
One night.
That’s all he’s offering.
If I say
yes, will I finally have it all?  Or will
it be a prelude to disaster?

Game Warden Matthias Hawking is a
decorated ex-SEAL engaged in a grueling fight against ruthless poachers in
Africa. He’s short on resources and long on enemies. There’s a price on his
head. The last thing he needs is the unexpected arrival of a beautiful but
stubborn journalist threatening to uncover his secrets, an alpha female
challenging his alpha male and getting into trouble, a hurricane wearing boots.
Jade Romo is a veteran of several
different kinds of war. She’s survived her heroin-addicted mother, the foster
care system, and the conflict in Afghanistan. Jade’s tough, confident, cynical,
and self-reliant, a woman who doesn’t believe in forevers. But when she defies
the poachers and lands at the top of the warlord’s kill list, she’s forced to
rely on the skilled, attractive but supremely infuriating game warden who has
captivated her body’s undivided attention.
Haunted by his past but driven by
his courage, her mysterious guardian will do anything in his power to protect
the woman who has captured his heart.

Blurb:  A gripping novel of romantic suspense from USA Today bestselling author Karen Fenech.

FBI Special Agent Paige Carson hoped she’d be able to start a new life in small-town South Carolina. But when a senator’s sister is murdered and a blank postcard is left next to the body, Paige realizes that a killer from her past has found her–and is sending her a very personal message.

From the moment he hired her, FBI Special Agent in Charge Sam McKade knew Paige was hiding something. Prompted by this recent threat, she finally opens up: one year ago, she caught the eye of suspected serial killer Todd Thames. Now he’s come back to pull her into his game, whether she wants to play or not.

As the danger increases, Paige and Sam give in to their growing attraction, and he vows to protect her no matter the cost. But the murderer will stop at nothing to get to his intended prey, and the strong arm of the law–and the shelter of her new love–may not be enough to save her.

Hard. Painful. Tragic.

This is what my life has become – purgatory. Floating in the middle of what could’ve been and what’s never going to happen.

My past dictates my future. Every step forward, guarantees ten steps back. Regret entwined with an addiction to bad decisions, living in the moment and neglecting the consequences has become a way of life.

Ignoring all the warning signs, I didn’t see him coming. He was supposed to be a distraction, a bit of fun amidst all my chaos. But Elliot Ramzy turned out to be all that, and so much more.

Keira Weston is screwed. Her art is flopping. Her teaching job dries up. And now she’s losing her apartment. A girl should be allowed to have a night of fun to forget her troubles, right?

But she doesn’t expect to come face to face with Eric Newcastle, the panty-melting guitarist she’s always crushed on. And she doesn’t expect him to ask her to join him and a rowdy headlining band as a tour photographer. Eric will even offers wild and tender nights in his bed as a perk. But she’s determined to keep things professional. She’s had her heart broken by an passionate artist before and she’s not getting burned again.

She certainly doesn’t expect to be tempted by the dirty talking guitarist with magic fingers while trying to prove herself.

Eric makes it clear. He’s interested in more than her skill with a camera. He wants Keira to himself so he can prove what they have is real.

So long she doesn’t uncover any of his family secrets…

THERE’S MORE THAN ONE WAY TO RUIN A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP.

Tech entrepreneur Sly has a portfolio of lucrative San Francisco Bay Area start-ups, but while his financial options are unlimited, his romantic options are anything but. Bored with the same old, same old, he finds himself spending more and more time with Cleo, his former piano teacher and current pizza-eating, binge-TV-watching partner.

Already divorced at only twenty-nine, Cleo’s not looking for love. Certainly not with a gorgeous workaholic who usually dates high-powered, MBA-toting supermodels. Although, come to think of it, Sly hasn’t dated anyone in a long time. And Cleo isn’t the only one to notice he seems lonely…

An unexpected weekend in Las Vegas forces Cleo to confront her past while Sly slams into his own demons and realizes he’s his own worst enemy. What happens when they cross the line? And then move it, jump over it, trample it, zigzag across it, and forget where the line was in the first place?

Hearts Unleashed was a clash of two broken people. John and Katie have first hand knowledge of trauma and heartbreak. Unwilling to share their pasts, they both rely on Koda. The dog that loves them both. Koda knows and they will learn that their hearts are bigger than they thought.

A heartfelt and wonderfully emotive story line and true depth to the characters made this a book a wonderful read. Tears fell and chuckles erupted while I read. Sometimes I just wanted to shake a little sense into each of them! I’m definitely glad I took the chance to read Hearts Unleashed.

 

The French Duchess by Rue Allyn 

In this rollicking Regency novel, a breathless chase through England and France to stop an assassination attempt on Napoleon leads to love.

Like the Englishmen who faced down the French army, the men who love Marielle Petersham, Duchess of Stonegreave, usually die. Hence, the ton has dubbed her the French Duchess. After a particularly notorious indiscretion, Marielle retired from society, determined to immerse herself in good works to wash the stain from her family name for the next generations.

Captain Sir Richard Campion despises his childhood friend for the mess she made of her life, especially since it led to his best friend’s death. But now Richard has been tasked by the Crown to stop a plot to assassinate Napoleon Bonaparte that could plunge Europe back into war. Marielle is the one person who holds a clue to the plotters, and so he must seek her out and discover where her loyalties lie, even if it involves a bit of subterfuge.

As they dash through France, determined to head off disaster, old affections begin to reignite. But can they truly trust one another long enough to save the continent?

Do you ever stop loving someone just because they’re gone?

Five years ago, Ryan Pierce disappeared from Alana Remington’s life without a trace. He was the one she gave her heart to, her soul to — and her virginity to. So, imagine her surprise when she finds him dancing at one of NYC’s hottest male revues as ‘Jack the Stripper.’

Ryan never stopped loving Alana, and now that she has serendipitously dropped back into his life, he’s vowed never to lose her again. But being together has its costs, and challenges Alana isn’t sure she can handle. She finally has Ryan back. But how in the world is she supposed to share the love of her life with half of the women in New York City?

Strip Me Bare is a second chance, standalone romance. It contains angst, heat, humor, heartbreak, and one seductive male stripper who will not only have you handing over your panties, but also your heart.
You’ve been warned.
