But she reads the lonesome cowboy like a book.
Brody Webb has earned a reputation as a pretty boy, and also someone who would gladly give you the shirt off his back. But in spite of his good looks and big heart, Brody’s devotion to the family farm lost him his ambitious wife.
When the city girl who bought his uncle’s bookshop forms an instant connection with his kids, Brody is smitten in spite of himself. But he fights tooth and nail not to show it. After all, what would an interesting young woman like Sarah want with a small-town farmer so boring he couldn’t even hang onto the mother of his two beloved children?
Sarah Robinson has dreamed of owning the bookshop in Trinity Falls since she lived in town briefly as a little girl. When the owner is finally willing to sell, she happily buys it, sight-unseen. But she arrives to find that the old place has a junky basement, a leaky roof, and some uninvited occupants. But the biggest problem for her is Mr. Webb’s nephew, a man so handsome he looks like he stepped directly off a billboard and into the bookshop with the sole purpose of making her heart pound out of her chest and her cheeks burn off her face. To make matters worse, he has an adorable son and a brilliant, book-loving twelve-year old daughter that Sarah takes to right away. And to top it all off, Brody makes her feel safe and protected, in a way she hasn’t in a long, long time.
But Sarah is determined not to make a fool of herself over the achingly handsome single dad. A man as beautiful as Brody Webb would never fall for a plain jane like her.
When circumstances throw them all together to solve a local mystery and get the bookshop ready in time for the Christmas rush, it becomes harder for Brody and Sarah to deny their helpless attraction. Will the big cowboy manage to keep his burgeoning feelings on ice? Or will the holiday magic of Trinity Falls ensure that Christmas comes early for them both?

When I moved from Italy to play for the Vegas Venom, it was a dream come true. My parents died when I was young, and I thought that being part of the team would be like being a part of a family.
I was wrong.
It turns out that I’m on thin ice. With everyone, really, but especially with Madison McKay.
Madison has lived rent free in my head since I met her at a photo shoot and I accidentally insulted her. She’s a curvy goddess, but when I fumbled over my words she didn’t let me dig myself out of the hole I created.
It doesn’t help that my so-called friends like to tease me, purposely leading me down the wrong road. Or that my roommate is a grumpy veteran player who only speaks in three word sentences.
Now that Madison is in Las Vegas full time, I figure it’s my second chance.
When I look at her, I already see our future together. She’s mine. I just have to convince her that I’m worth another look.
But I’m about to have to convince her of a whole lot more.
When the Venom release me from the team I’m faced with a decision. I either have to return to Italy or figure out a way to stay in the states…legally.
Will Madison take a chance on forever with me or will I be heading back to my homeland alone?

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.

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.

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.

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.

After escaping marriage to a man who made me feel like I was never enough, I plan to focus entirely on completing my dissertation.

But when I’m powerfully drawn to a man who is warm and, okay, I’ll admit it—also hard—all bets are off. Mr. Right Now is exactly what I need, until both of us find ourselves wanting the one thing we can’t have—more.

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she's called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She's never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she'd probably choose the west coast.
A typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max), Kat can usually be found scrapbooking or indulging in her second
love (after writing) - traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.
Kat's been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article--a review of a rock concert--for $10 in 1985. Since then she's been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her Las Vegas Sidewinders series, Kat loves hockey and occasionally writes articles about her favorite team, the Florida Panthers. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There's something enticing about hockey players and romance...

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.

Familiar Magic and a Dead Wolf by @authorliadavis is brand new and #free to read with #KindleUnlimited!!
Temporarily, of course.
Fortunately for Lexie, her day job doesn't require much supernatural skill. Working at The Ancients Agency doing forest patrol means she just has to watch for signs that the resident shifters are misbehaving. Keeping the wolf packs and leopard pride under control is well above her pay grade.
Which is honestly for the best considering that one of the wolf shifters just turned up dead.
When Lexie's supervisor tasks her with leading in the murder investigation, this would-be-witch finds herself face-to-face with Kellen Rich. As the Alpha of the Howlers Wolf Pack, he wants vengeance for his fallen pack member, and the crime is jeopardizing his attempts to forge a peace treaty with the rival wolf pack, the Dark Fangs.
Irresistibly handsome but extremely aloof, Kellen gives Lexie a few leads and a lot of interesting feelings. But she can't afford to worry about a crush when she's working to get her magic back all while hunting a killer. As the most cursed member of the coven, does she have what it takes to administer justice and keep the wolves from going to war?
