Emery St. James never dreamed of being a contestant in one of those dramatic baking contests. But then her life turned into a reality show of epic proportions.
Owning a bakery was her childhood dream – and the pompous rich boy who opens a French pastry café right down the street, her worst nightmare. The last thing she needs as she struggles to make ends meet is competition. Even more annoyingly, competition by the name of Marshall Bartlett, who has the nerve to steal her parking spot and insult her bakery. But putting Marshall out of her mind isn’t a piece of cake. Not when both families attempt to broker peace by blackmailing them into five “get to know you” dates, and especially not when Emery’s sex-starved grandmother is chaperoning from afar.
Will their dates go down as easily as Emery’s cherry cobbler, or will they be a recipe for disaster?

She becomes successful with the purchase of her second business, a bar that is named The Bar where she meets its cocky neighbor, Tanner. Tanner owns a vehicle and motorcycle repair and restoration business right next to the bar.
Tanner is pretty much your typical playboy, though he is upfront with his one-night stands and never leads anyone on. He has no desire to settle down after going through his own traumatic childhood. He doesn’t really trust women, but for some reason, Skylar gets under his skin. They butt heads, yet deep down, neither can deny the chemistry that is there.
Skylar is not ready for a relationship, and she’d never even think about dating someone like Tanner, who she sees as someone who could never be faithful or loyal and doesn’t deserve someone like her, someone who when she gives her heart, she gives it completely.
Will Skylar be able to finally move on and let anyone in again?
Will Tanner be able to trust a woman, settle down, and be faithful?

As the memory fades and I come back to the present, I set the cologne bottle down and feel like I’m dying inside at the thought of never having another Christmas with the man I’ve loved since the moment I laid eyes on him in the vocational school lunchroom. I suddenly feel like someone is crushing my heart in a vice, making it hard to breathe. I open his top drawer, looking for a t-shirt I can put on my cold, shivering, naked body. I sift through his drawer, looking for his favorite Pink Floyd t-shirt he wore often. As I rifle through his shirts, my hand touches something hard. I move shirts aside and look down to see a small, black, velvet box. For a long moment, all I can do is stare at it. When I finally pick it up, I back up until my knees hit the bed. I sit down hard, unable to take my eyes from the box, scared to open it. I finally get the courage to lift the lid and my hand moves up over my mouth as I whisper, “Oh my God. “Inside is a breathtaking princess cut diamond engagement ring on a simple, white gold band. My breath catches in my throat, and my chin and lips start quivering as fresh tears pour down my face. My sight blurs so badly that I can hardly make it out anymore. I snap the lid and scream out, “No! You can’t be gone! We had plans! I love you so much!” I clutch the ring box to my chest, grab his other pillow, hugging it as I lay down, pulling his comforter up to my chin. It still smells of him. As his scent surrounds me, I fall into bone-shattering sobs until I pass out sometime in the early morning hours.

My name is Ava Mendoza, and I am a species traitor.
They came hoping to find a new home after their own planet was destroyed, but Earth was dying as well, and most humans saw their arrival as an invasion. Now, two decades later, the Veilorians have been banished to the District, a fenced-in area on the outskirts of the last known livable land on Earth. Most people do their best to pretend they don’t exist, but not everyone. There are humans, like my cousin, who see them for what they are. Despite the threat of disownment, she married a Veilorian, and now she, too, lives in the District.
Even before I met Finn, I was determined to stand up for what was right, but from the moment I laid eyes on him, we had a connection I’ve never experienced before. But with the election of a new and radical mayor on the horizon, tensions are high, and people are calling for change. They want to make my cousin’s marriage illegal and punish any human who goes into the District, but I refuse to back down from this fight. No matter the cost.

Do you know what happens when you sleep with your best friend’s little sister?
 
Yeah, me either.
But I’m about to find out.

But then we ended up trapped in a blizzard together. One thing led to another, and well…
 
The rest is pretty self-explanatory.
 
She told me that I was just a fling. I forgot to tell her that I had already fallen in love.
 
At the same time that I realized how much she meant to me, someone else did as well.
 
Now, she’s got a rock the size of a skating rink on her finger and is about to take the wrong last name.
 
I’m down to the last minute in the fourth quarter, but I’m not sweating it. That’s always when I shine the most, anyways. This time, my touchdown is going to come in the form of scoring forever with Willow.
 
First things first, though.
 
I’ve got to stop Willow from walking down the aisle and marrying the wrong dude.

They say opposites attract and Avery Evans and Doctor Flynn Kelly are polar opposites in every way. 
Avery is quiet, reserved, and ohh so shy. There’s something about the gorgeous schoolteacher Flynn can’t stay away from.

They are drawn together like magnets.

“Flynn, Flynn Kelly.”
“Avery Evans,” I reply. “Nice to meet you, Mr. Kelly.”
“Doctor,” he huskily replies.
“My mistake.” I swallow and add, “It’s nice to meet you, Dr. Flynn Kelly.” Placing my hand in his, an electrical current zaps between us. It’s just like those romantic moments I read about in my romance books.
“Tis a pleasure to meet you too, Avery Evans.” My name sounds so sexy come from his lips, my eyes drop to his mouth, and I watch as his tongue darts out, sliding across his bottom lip.
We each hold each other’s hand longer than appropriate and once again the barman interrupts us, delivering Flynn his beer. Fucking cockblocker, I think to myself, as I hand over a ten dollar bill to cover his drink.
“Thanks for the beer, Avery Evans.” The way he says my name sets my body alight. Combine that with the intensity of his gaze and my body is a burning inferno. I love hearing his accented, deep husky voice wrap around each vowel and consonant within my name; hell, he could read the phone book to me and I’d be mesmerized. He takes a sip of beer, and my eyes watch as he swallows, it’s sexy as all fuck. Yes, him drinking a beer is sexy. He places the beer on the bar top, his gaze once again boring into me. My body temperate is nearing catastrophic heat levels.
“My pleasure,” I quietly offer in reply, brushing my hair over my shoulder as I stare at the gorgeous Irishman before me.
“It can be,” he seductively says; as he continues to unabashedly fuck me with his eyes…again. My panties dampen. My tongue darts out and I lick my bottom lip. His eyes trace my tongue before I can register what’s happening. He threads his fingers into my hair, pulls me toward him, and slams his lips against mine. My mouth opens in shock and he takes the opportunity to slide his tongue inside. My eyes close and I lose myself to the kiss. Our tongues seductively slide against one another. Our lips press together tightly. This kiss is not suitable for public, but I can’t stop kissing him. My lips and tongue are moving on their own, I have no control. Sliding my hands into his hair, I pull him closer to me, deepening the kiss and our connection.
He pulls away, breaking the contact between us much sooner than I would have liked, but considering we’re in a bar; it’s probably for the best. He starts to lean forward and I think he’s going to kiss me again. He leans in farther, his warm breath ghosting over my ear, my body buzzing from the brief contact. “Thanks for the beer,” he whispers before placing a gentle kiss on that sweet spot just below my earlobe, my skin tingling where his lips caressed my heated skin. He pulls back, winks at me, picks up the pint glass, turns around, and walks away. Leaving me a panting, breathless, wet, turned on mess.
“Holy fucking hotness, Batman,” Cress says from beside to me, I totally forgot she was here. “I think I need a cold shower after that.”
“You and me both,” I stammer, as I watch him walk away. And I can say, his ass is just as fine as the rest of him.
“You going to go after that hot piece of ass?”
I shake my head. “Nope, if he wants me, he can chase me.”
“That’s my girl!” Cress shouts.

Wicked As Sin


He’s ruthless. She’s off-limits. But he’s just met his one weakness… Now nothing will stop him from making her his.

Pierce “One-Mile” Walker has always kept his heart under wraps and his head behind his sniper’s scope. Nothing about buttoned-up Brea Bell should appeal to him. But after a single glance at the pretty preacher’s daughter, he doesn’t care that his past is less than shiny, that he gets paid to end lives…or that she’s his teammate’s woman. He’ll do whatever it takes to steal her heart.

Brea has always been a dutiful daughter and a good girl…until she meets the dangerous warrior. He’s everything she shouldn’t want, especially after her best friend introduces her to his fellow operative as his girlfriend—to protect her from Pierce. But he’s a forbidden temptation she’s finding impossible to resist.

Then fate strikes, forcing Brea to beg Pierce to help solve a crisis. But his skills come at a price. When her innocent flirtations run headlong into his obsession, they cross the line into a passion so fiery she can’t say no. Soon, his past rears its head and a vendetta calls his name in a mission gone horribly wrong. Will he survive to fight his way back to the woman who claimed his soul?
