And…he’d decided she was his.
She loved being a doctor.
She didn’t love Connor Jackson.
Picking. Poking. Prodding. The man had never met a button he didn’t like to push. And since Raven had never met a fight that she didn’t see through to the end, when she and Connor were together…
Then she got hurt—really hurt—and Connor decided that she needed looking after.
And that was when she discovered that maybe what she felt for Connor wasn’t hate at all.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Faber breaks the heart wide open. Her "Life Sucks" series features flawed characters, emotional scenarios and inspiring stories. Free Fall is no exception. Raven and Connor are determined to be human. Their foray into matters of the heart means facing the uncertainty of learning to be vulnerable and never losing sight of dreams despite the odds.

Mara Westbrook knows precisely what it's like to have no one to rely on. It's one of the many life experiences that makes her such a wonderful nurse. Tending to the wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Medical Center gives her purpose, and one very irresistible patient constantly reminds her that someday, when she's finally made peace with her past, she wants nothing more than to experience real love.
The only light in Master Sergeant Sean O'Brien's dark days is his night nurse, Mara. Her humor, tender smiles, and endless kindness ease the pain of his wounds, and the sight of her shapely form in scrubs helps him appreciate that he survived the gruesome realities of combat.
As they begin to let each other in, the sparks between them quickly ignite. But the past is never far behind, and evil men are intent on catching up with Mara. Hopelessly caught in a wicked web of deceit with her happiness on the line, she makes an unthinkable choice. Yet no matter how far she runs, there is no escape from her shameful secrets or the danger bearing down on her.
Fate intervenes and forces Mara to trust Sean and the Rossi Security team for protection if she intends to survive. As Sean learns the shocking truth about Mara's past and discovers she is the key to bringing down the Mendoza cartel once and for all, he's faced with a choice of his own. Can he forgive Mara's betrayal and give their once-in-a-lifetime love the second chance it deserves?
A USA Today and #1 international bestselling author, Maddie is a lifelong reader who became a romance junkie as a teen with her first romance novel, The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. From then on, she was hooked, and gobbled up everything she could get her hands on, whether contemporary, historical, paranormal or sci-fi. If there was romance to be found between a strong alpha male, and a sassy, adventurous and ofttimes defiant yet loving woman, Maddie was all over it. As an author, she stays true to those themes writing steamy erotic romance, with a side of kink, and adding elements of intrigue, danger and suspense to her plots.
Maddie started writing as a hobby. Her stories stayed private while she raised a family and worked full time as a registered nurse. It wasn't until 2012 that she decided to take the plunge and submit her first book for publication: Captain My Captain. She went on to publish eleven novels the first year.
Successful model Bliss Gault is known for her smile and her sunshiny attitude. The youngest child of rock legend Steven Gault, everyone sees her as the flaky, flighty member of the family. And why wouldn’t they, when she has a habit of getting in and out of messes by the skin of her teeth? But when she returns to Lake Bittersweet for her sister’s wedding with an international mess in tow…this time, she might be in over her head.
FBI Agent Earl Granger is in Minnesota to help an old Army buddy, using “head of security” for Bliss Gault as his cover. Within seconds of meeting her, the stunning blond is making him crazy with her whimsy and her sage-burning. He’s a gruff, fact-focused professional. There’s no way he’s letting her distract him from his real purpose—discovering the identity of his father. She can save the smiles and seduction act for someone else.
But fate has something very different in store for these two total opposites. From international mayhem to a passion they never saw coming…some seductions are impossible to resist.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Unforgettable. Unpredictable. Irresistible. The Seduction turns instant attraction into breathtaking romance. Bernard pulls the soul into the twists and turns of the heart. Bliss and Earl take emotions on a topsy-tury adventure that seems larger than life and grounded in love.

I should have listened to my brother and kept her out of it. But now it’s too late. Because whoever is coming after my family is coming after her, too. They think she knows more than she does. They think she’s more important than she is to my family. And they’re willing to kill her to prove it.
But only if they can get through me and my men.
Do I know what she was doing? No. Do I think I can trust her? Honestly, I’m not sure. Do I have any intention of letting anyone else get their hands on her?
Because somewhere between hiring her to protect her and dancing through the night at a museum benefit, I fell for the girl I was never supposed to fall for. And now that I’ve got her, I’m not going to give her back.
Even if keeping her costs me my life.
Her Keeper is a swoonworthy romantic adventure that features enemies to lovers, a girl who’s in over her head and the guy who’s going to do whatever it takes to save her, spying, intrigue, hijinks, kidnapping, guns, and plenty of sexual tension, and is the second in the Penny and Michael duology of New York Rogues.
Quinn Marlowe is the bestselling author of the Rossi and Southern Heroes series and a certified California girl. After studying English and film at UCLA, she decided to pursue storytelling full time. She loves red wine, cheesecake, perfect hash browns, really good punk rock, fast cars, autumn, and cooking, but she is most likely to be found spending time with her horses, snuggling her dogs, or taking orders from her small army of cats. She is a professional eye roller with a penchant for swearing like a sailor, and some of her favorite people (her nephews) are convinced she is a spy. She makes her home in San Diego with her loving husband and her prized collections of books and lipstick, neither of which ever fail to lift her spirits when she's feeling down.

History books may tell about the fall of the Qing Dynasty. But they haven't told my story...
Born to a family of wealth and privilege, Zhenxiu was trained from a young age to become the wife of a very powerful man, though she prayed it would not be Prince Yizhu, the future Xianfeng Emperor, a man with cruel and salacious appetites. The sudden death of the prince's consort, however, thrusts fifteen-year-old Zhenxiu into the prince's bed and the center of the Qing Court, a court still reeling from the aftershocks of the Opium War.
Zhenxiu finds solace in the friendship of a girl named Lanhua, and she does her best to help her friend rise in the emperor's estimation. When the emperor dies and leaves only Lanhua's five-year-old son as his heir, Zhenxiu finds herself as the de facto ruler of China, a position she was never trained to occupy. As she leans more and more on Lanhua for help, she slowly comes to realize that Lanhua's ambition has no bounds. An ambition that could get them both killed.
The Other Empress is a riveting historical drama that brings to light the story of an empress who stood at the helm of the Qing Dynasty for more than twenty years. An empress overshadowed by the strong presence of the woman who would prove to be her dearest friend—and her most dangerous rival.
