  • When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting is now live!! — “Avery Spark is living her best life. Between her friends, her sisters, and Spark House, the event hotel her family owns, she doesn’t have much time for anything else, especially relationships. She’d rather hang out with her best friend and roommate, Declan McCormick, than deal with the dating scene. But everything changes when she is in a car accident and needs someone to care for her as she heals. Declan avoids relationships, giving him a playboy reputation that he lives up to when he puts a one-night stand ahead of a promise he made to Avery. While he may not have been the one driving the car, he feels responsible for Avery’s injuries and is determined to make it up to her by stepping into the role of caretaker. Little did they know that the more time they spend in compromising positions, the attraction they’ve been refusing to acknowledge becomes impossible to ignore…”
  • One Day Like This by Scarlett Cole is now live!! — Matt: “Loving Izabel Bryson should be the easiest thing in the world. Heck, she’s been the inspiration for at least half a dozen of the songs he’s written for his rock band, Sad Fridays. He’s loved her for a decade. But she’s his best friend and fellow-band mate’s little sister, and he promised a decade ago that he’d never put his hands on her. She can never be his, no matter how much he craves her.” Izabel: “Loving Matt Palmer is the most hopeless thing in the world. The hours she spends working at the homeless shelter only go so far in distracting her from the painful truth. He doesn’t want her. Because she screwed up that awful night two years before when she slept with his brother. He will never be hers, no matter how much she yearns for him. When a good deed leads to one bed, and one night of ruthless honesty, everything is laid bare. They belong together, but acting on it will cost them everything.”
  • For Love or Honey by Staci Hart is now live!! — “When the devil comes to town, you have to meet him head-on. Which is exactly what I did when Grant Stone rolled into our small Texas town, driving a sports car I could fit in the bed of my truck, wearing a suit as black as his soul. He’s here to acquire mineral rights to half a dozen farms in town. And there’s no way he’s getting mine. I don’t make deals with the devil. So when he challenges me to show him the small town ropes, my motivation is the prospect of seeing him make a fool of himself. He might have an angle, but if he thinks he can finagle me into endangering my bee farm, he’s got another thing coming. Until the line in the sand is washed away. My farm in danger. A town in upheaval. A man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. And me in the middle. When the devil comes to town, you have to meet him head-on. And when he sneaks into your heart, he’ll only break it.”
