Guess who's having the craziest week EVER?

That would be me.

Sunday: I get dumped by my boyfriend—right before a couple's bungee jump.

Monday: My little sister informs me that she’s invited our evil, estranged mom to the wedding I’ve spent months helping her plan.

Wednesday: In an effort to escape Massimo Igno, this creepy friend of my future brother-in-law, I somehow end up making out with a tall, dark stranger who looks like Superman’s twin.

Thursday: Tall-dark-and Superman’s-Twin turns out to be my new high-profile client, and my now totally off-limits thinks-he’s-the-boss-of-me client is demanding I drop everything to come with him to Rome. Seriously, did I hunt baby polar bears in a past life or something? What did I do to deserve this? Of course, with my sister’s wedding to plan, I tell him no.

Friday: As it turns out, no isn’t an option. My sexy new “client” is actually a ruthless, dangerous criminal. Apparently, he and the creepy guy I was trying to dodge are arch-enemies. He’s been watching me for weeks, and he wants to use me to get to Massimo.

Unfortunately, I don’t discover any of this until after he steals me from my hotel room in the dead of night and deposits me at his remote British countryside estate.

Saturday: I decide to fight like hell to escape my gorgeous British country estate prison.

Now, the question going into next week is, will I be able to get away from stupid-hot-villain a-holewhose stare makes my tummy do things it shouldn’t, considering he’s kidnapped me?

And what will he do to me if he catches me?



We are thrilled to reveal this gorgeous cover for FORGOT TO SAY GOODBYE
by S.L. Scott coming August 17!  

Noah Westcott should come with a warning: Too Hot to Handle! 

The man is stunningly handsome with his embracing brown eyes and lips that make me want to kiss that smirk right off his face. 

How could I resist? 

Spoiler: I didn’t. 

That was my first mistake. 

I blame him for the second. It should have been easy and fun. No strings attached. No feelings. As if he commanded it like he did me in the bedroom, I did exactly what I said I wouldn’t. I fell for him. 

Two years later, the same man walks into my life. Again. A lot has changed. Not his devastating good looks, or that smug grin, but for me everything. 

Now that Noah’s back—in my office and hanging around after hours—I can’t get distracted. I must protect my secret—the one who calls me Mommy.

A new sizzling romance from USA Today Bestselling author Layla Hagen. This is Kimberly Maxwell's

 Office Romance
 Only One Bed
 Steamy hot scenes


 Two enemies. One bed. What could possibly go wrong?

Our new general manager is the most difficult man on the planet. The night before Drake begins working at my family’s hotel, he finds me in the bar, trying to get rid of a boring date. But the guy won’t take even a not-so-subtle hint.

Then Drake surprises me and comes to our table, but only to reprimand ME about dating in our workplace.
The asshat! I swear he thinks he can get away with it only because of those smoldering green eyes. Well, they don’t affect me. Nope, not at all.

He may be Mr. McDreamy, but he doesn’t know who he’s dealing with. I give as good as I get.

As we scout a location for a new hotel in Aspen, things really come to a head—just not in the way I imagined.
When our reservations get mixed up and we end up in the same room—sharing one bed—Drake confesses that he crashed my date because he couldn’t stand seeing me with another man. He wants me all for himself.

I don’t want to want him. Besides, the hotel needs him, and so does my family. But as I give in to the temptation that is Drake DuGray, things get deliciously complicated… in more ways than one.

Acacia Ashley has one love: the written word. Specifically the rich, earthy, prose of Mr. Ernest Hemingway. Her love for Hemingway goes so deep that she opened a bar in his honor. Every year in July she plays host to Hemingway Days in Candy Cane Key, and every year she has to stay on guard in case Edwin Wheeler decides once again to find a way to ruin the solemnity of the occasion.

Edwin Wheeler doesn't care about books or old men, but the sea? The sea is where he spends his days in search of the almighty dollar. But when he grows bored of plying tourists with fruity drinks, he’s often found needling the resident bookworm, Acacia. She's hated him ever since the incident four years ago. Why does getting a rise out of her give him a bit of a rise as well?

When the bell tolls signaling approaching stormy weather that threatens both of their businesses, the pair realizes a farewell to arms may be the best way to avoid a dangerous summer.

Copyright 2023 Willow Sanders

It was much easier to ruminate over one’s nemesis when he wasn’t ten feet away. The other problem? The way he doted on and cared for his mother was literally catnip. Lady Kitty catnip, not like, for Six- toed Joe. The second his mom shivered, he was there with her cardigan. She coughed, he had her water at the ready. He repeated what MariJo’s nephew and niece said, but louder and in the direction of her good ear, without making it obvious he did it for her benefit. How could someone who was such an asshole be so sweetly attentive to his mother? It didn’t compute.

“What if we served a buffet of Hemingway-inspired appetizers?” Asher asked, his bushy eyebrows the only thing I could make out over the clipboard he referenced.

“Now wouldn’t that be a hoot?” Edwin flipped a fifty onto the counter. “I’m sure no one in the history of Hemingway-inspired bars, restaurants, parties, or events has ever thought to offer a little canape dipped in literary puns.”

Asher lifted an eyebrow in his direction as if to ask me is he for real? Unfortunately, yes, he was. The two of us had a War and Peace length conversation in silent eye rolls and quirks of lip before Asher heaved a dramatic sigh and placed his clipboard on the counter.

“I believe it was the great Oscar Wilde who said sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.”

Edwin nabbed a cherry from my garnish center, shrugging in Asher’s direction. God, he was ridiculous. He never took his eyes off me, even though the shrug was directed at Asher. Did he want me to chastise him for stealing a cherry? Because of the list of things I could chastise the man over, being a cherry stealer was low on the list.

“What can I do for you Edwin?”

I tried to be as subtle as I could, affixing the plastic top to the tray of garnish. It was a place of business after all. Sanitation was important. Certainly, no one wanted his grubby, work-roughened fingers anywhere near their drinks.

“Now there’s a statement heavy with possibility.”

Edwin Wheeler did not get to do funny things to my nervous system. No ma’am. The way his voice went soft and gravely did not affect the steady, reliable thrum of my pulse. And his tipped lip or the mischievous glint in his eyes did not make my face feel hot. I’d rather succumb to food poisoning from bad fish than have him be the reason I felt flushed and a little woozy.

“Did your mom call up your cousin and ask him to come for a playdate? That was so considerate of her. This way you have someone who is obligated to tolerate your company every day while your boat’s boo-boos get all patched up.”

At that moment, the sexy version of Santa Claus, also known as Edwin’s cousin, took a seat next to him at the bar and regarded me.

“How’s that champagne coming along?” he asked his cousin.

“This here’s Klaus.” Edwin cocked his head.

“Bottle or glasses?” I asked, ignoring the flirty challenge in Edwin’s eyes. “The bottle is probably the better choice as you’ll get four glasses out of it for thirty dollars versus four glasses of champagne at nine fifty a piece which would be thirty-eight, before tax.”

Edwin’s eyes flit to the fifty he had sitting in front of him and back up to look at me. Though that didn’t really answer the question. Regardless of which he chose, the fifty covered it and then some.

He didn’t get to win. It was my bar. If I were a petty person, I’d pour four glasses and charge him the per-glass rate. If he wanted to play Mr. Unaffected, James Dean cool, and answer me in smirks and eyebrow lifts instead of words, fine. I’d show him.

In a moment of panic, I turn to Victoria first.

It’s what Harper would want, but it’s becoming what I need.

As our connection deepens, I'm working hard to prove my past no longer defines me. My priorities have changed now that I have a child and I'm falling in love for the first time.

And then I discover Victoria told her family she's bringing me as her date to her sister’s destination wedding. With her ex as the best man and her as the maid of honor, I agree to go. After all, attending a wedding and pretending I’m in love with her won’t really be much of an act for me.

Just before we leave for the tropics, an altercation threatens to destroy everything I've worked so hard for over the last couple months.

And now I have a proposition of my own...a fair catch that could change our lives forever.

FAIR CATCH is the third book in the VEGAS THE PLAYBOOK series. This series must be read in order.





Fair Catch (Vegas Aces: The Playbook Book 3)Fair Catch by Lisa Suzanne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An ever evolving, unpredictable, irresistible, heartaching romance. Suzanne had me at hello with Travis and Victoria and Harper was just the icing on the cake. Fair Catch brings the drama of fame while exploring the heart of family. Travis is a beautiful contradiction. His depth of emotion is refreshing. From bachelor playboy to insecure celebrity to loving father, he has many layers. A sweet temptation that keeps getting better.
