He was a single dad.When Rome Hutchins found out he had a son, his life changed for the better.
He didn’t have time for love.
His kid was great.
His heart, though, was not. It had been trampled, kicked around, and shredded just for good measure. Obviously, after all that, he wasn’t looking for love.
But then…came Maddie.
She was his brother’s assistant and an integral part of his brother’s company—it would be bad business to start something with her.
Only, she was smart and funny and capable and…his heart didn’t feel like it was in pieces when he was with her.
It felt whole.
It felt…like it had always been hers.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Easy on the eyes, hard on the heart. Faber has dreamed up the ultimate heartbreaker. Bad Business is every emotion rolled into a compelling story. Rome and Maddie are a match made in heartache. Attraction draws them together but uncertainty keeps them apart. From sensory overload to soulful romance, love has a lot to offer.

Something like Hate by Piper Rayne is #NowLive!
I love him.
I loathe him.
It’s like plucking daisy petals in my head, but he’ll never know.
When Miles Cavanaugh, the best safety in the league, was traded to the Chicago Grizzlies football team last year, I could finally breathe. Temptation was miles away.
How naïve to think it would end there because when the opportunity to write for a national magazine based in Chicago lands in my lap months later, I can’t turn it down. Sure, it’s a big city, but the sexual energy feels like a beacon between us the minute my plane lands.
To make matters worse, I end up having to take over the job of reporting exclusively on the Chicago Grizzlies. Which means traveling with the team, interviewing players, and pretty much having an all-access pass to their lives during the season.
Miles and I put up a great front, quickly hating on one another, but we both know it’s a lie. We also know the rules are simple. For me, don’t sleep with the subject of your articles. For him, don’t sleep with the journalist who can make or break your career.
I thought straight-laced Miles Cavanaugh followed all the rules… oh how wrong I was.

Though her loneliness only adds to her anguish, she can't seem to find her strength or passion anywhere. Even on her best nights at Decadence LA, Esme simply watches from the sidelines, unable to walk away from the lifestyle she once thrived in.
Running the LA branch of Rossi Security leaves Kieran Finnegan no time for a social life, but he’s a man who knows what he wants. After one electrifying evening with Esme at the club, he’s convinced she's everything he’s been longing for.

But he must break through the protective walls she has erected around her heart and dare her to love again.
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.
Rafe by Tasha Black is #availablenow!
She’s determined never to be with another man. Can this gorgeous dragon-shifting guard change her mind?After being tricked into indentured servitude on the pleasure ships, Jade Gatlin is determined to avoid male attention for the rest of her days. The opportunity to adopt a little one and start a new life on a frontier moon, where she can heal the wounds of her tortured soul, sounds almost too good to be true. But the baby shows up in the arms of a rakish dragon guard, who holds Jade’s eyes too long and gives her unwanted shivers at every accidental touch.
Rafe has spent his career as a hotshot pilot for the Invicta dragon army. Handsome, fun-loving, and an ace with the ladies, Rafe is stunned when he realizes the serious Terran girl with the golden hair is his fated mate. And even more stunned when she tells him she’s not interested.
But before Rafe can change her mind, a murder takes place on the cross-moon train they are riding. And the two are set up to take the blame.
If Rafe wants to convince Jade to seal their mate bond and start their new life together with baby Gus, they’ll have to clear their names. And that means spending a lot of time together, and restraining his passion long enough to help her crack the mystery of Rothbart village.
If you like strong women, sexy aliens, wild adventures, steamy sensual scenes, and happily-ever-afters, then you’ll love the world of the Alien Adoption Agency!

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.

Master Asad is a perennial playboy with a serious problem. Years of no-strings-attached fun has left him without a suitable date for his younger brother's wedding. Since going alone would put him in his meddling mother's crosshairs for an entire week, he needs somebody -- literally anybody -- by his side.
Enter Morgan. She's gorgeous, fun, and not interested in anything serious. In fact, Asad can't wait to get his hands on her again. And though she's grateful to her newfound friends for rescuing her from years of abuse, she's beginning to bristle at all the rules they want her to follow. Eager to escape the overprotective Marquis Doms, she jumps at the chance to get away from it all and play Asad's fake girlfriend for the week.
The catch? The other Masters want Asad to keep his hands to himself. For the entire trip.
But Morgan has her own plans and Master Asad has never been one to play by the rules. After all, who will know?
She is happily married, old enough to know better but still too young to care, and a big fan of happily-ever-afters, strong heroes and heroines, and sizzling chemistry.
When she's not writing, she can often be found on the couch reading, in front of her sewing machine making a new cosplay, hanging out with her friends, or wandering the Maryland Renaissance Fair.
