For A Roman's Heart For A Roman's Heart by Denise A. Agnew
Genre: Historical
Length: 280 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-344-5
Price: $16.00 Limited time sale-priced for $11.20

His scarred soul knows no vulnerability–except her touch.

Trapped between cruel parents and the need to hide her gift of second sight from suspicious villagers, Adrenia Tertia Brigomalla walks a line as thin as the threads she weaves. The need for independence burns fierce in her heart, but not as hot as her unexpected attraction to a Roman soldier who comes to the village in search of a deserter.

Though hardened by war, Centurion Terentius Marius Atellus defies any man to harm an innocent. Nothing shakes his relentless determination to track down a murderous legionnaire with a taste for young women. Yet Adrenia's spirit and vulnerability spark a protective instinct stronger than duty…and temptation that could be his downfall.

Fragile trust built on stolen kisses and a premonition saves his life and drives his offer of the ultimate protection–marriage. While she revels in the feral passion he awakens within her, Adrenia would sooner brave the fires of Hades than trade one yoke for another.

It's a decision that could leave them both dangling above a precipice they may not survive…

Product Warnings: Searing passion meets gritty reality of Roman life. Trespass only if you dare…

Breathe Breathe by Donna Alward
Genre: Contemporary
Length: 200 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-289-9
Price: $14.00 Limited time sale-priced for $9.80

The first time they broke each other's hearts. Now they have a second chance…

Doing what was expected didn't get Anna Morelli anything but a bad marriage. Now that her life has fallen apart there's only one place she can think of to regroup and figure out what comes next. Two Willows, the winery owned by the only man she could ever rely on. Her oldest friend. And her worst mistake.

Growing up as the poor boy didn't stop Jace Willow from falling for Anna one hot, sultry summer. Back then, his best efforts to prove himself worthy of the Morelli standard fell just short. While it killed him to see her marry someone else, he made beating the Morellis at their own game his life's work. And he's excelled at it.

When Anna shows up on his doorstep, their painful history pales in the face of her need for a roof over her children's heads–and some peace. The heat of their renewed passion is healing, but it burns away layers of hard-won emotional distance, reopening old wounds. Threatening their one last chance to rebuild their love on the shattered pieces of their broken hearts…

Product Warnings: Full-bodied, rich bouquet with sexy overtones. Decant, breathe, and enjoy.

Half Pass Half Pass by Astrid Amara
Genre: Contemporary, GLBT
Length: 208 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-341-4
Price: $14.00 Limited time sale-priced for $9.80

He looks good on a horse, but it's hard to love a man with a big ego and a small alibi.

Paul King's inheritance is named Serenity Stables, but for him it's far from serene. He has one plan for the crumbling facility: unload it as fast as possible. But two months on the market, and he's still mucking stalls and dreaming of his old life back in San Francisco.

It doesn't help that he seems to have misplaced a horse. Not just any horse–Tux, a million-dollar Warmblood who, despite lacking opposable thumbs, has an Olympic medal to its name. So does its Brazilian trainer, Estevan Souza, a man whose darkly sexual, smoldering glances almost make Paul forget his horse phobia.

Intriguing as Paul finds Estevan, distractions are piling up. The boarders are picky. The arena roof is leaking. His drunken cousin is wreaking havoc. Tux's owners are threatening to sue. On top of that, a bucket of blood points to possible murder.

Suddenly, Estevan's glances are looking more suspicious than sinful. And, if Paul can't come up with a plan to save Tux, he could lose not only his chance with Estevan, but his life.

Product Warnings: Includes beautiful horses, men in tight breeches, murderers, horse thieves, Olympic champions, cowboy hats, anal sex, broken dreams, and the conquering of traumatic childhood fears.

Suddenly, "resistance is futile" has a whole new meaning.

Lusting after the wrong woman can be pure torture, especially when the sexy siren falls into the do-not-touch-ever category. The smart move is to resist, unless the heart has other plans…

Ready or Not – When Brianna agreed to fill in as the stripper at a bachelor party, she didn't expect to see the man she's wanted for years. Suddenly, baring all isn't such a hot idea. Quinn is certain Brianna's the last person he should be lusting after. But lust he does–with a vengeance.

Batteries Not Required – In Dana's experience, boring sex and long-term relationships go hand-in-hand. She's on a mission to find bedroom excitement and she knows just the man to give it to her. Dana's proposal to have a fling is right up Reese's alley. But once Reese has Dana in his arms, he decides to tempt her into turning their fling into something more.

Brazen or Bust – Determined to make Logan see her as more than his honorary kid sister, Nica undergoes a sexy makeover and adopts a feisty new attitude. Logan's not sure what
happened to the tomboy he's known for years, but this brazen sex kitten is an enticing treat he shouldn't touch…

Product Warnings: This book contains seductive stripping, a teensy bit of handcuff play, the inappropriate use of furniture, feisty women determined to seduce and sexy hunks bowled over by temptation. All of which leads to some smokin' hot graphic sex

Genre: Paranormal, Vampires

Price: $15.00 Limited time sale-priced for $10.50

Magick made him human. Only love can keep him that way.

After a century of living la vida muerta, Julian Devlin's closest ally casts a de-vamping spell that leaves him defanged and demoted from his hard-won place in Baltimore's vampire hierarchy. Disoriented by his transformation, he can't even find his way home.

The indignities don't end there. Before he can explain to the quirky consignment shop owner why he's hiding in her basement, she's punched the newly re-acquired breath out of him and smacked him upside the head with her knock-off purse.

Zoe Boyd's scream could have peeled paint from the walls–if she could get her heart out of her throat. Common thugs aren't supposed to have a smile so panty-melting that she finds herself apologizing for scaring him.

She's also too busy managing her friends' love lives to take on an ex-vampire with revamping and revenge on his mind. Until she guides him home and ends up neck deep in his world of trouble.

As Zoe risks her life to give him back his death, she warms the soul Julian never thought he'd own again. And when he tracks down a devilish witch who can reverse the spell, immortality without Zoe suddenly seems like cold comfort…

Product Warnings: This novel contains sensual love scenes between a fashion-forward hero and a fashion-unconscious heroine, abuse of Italian loafers, and a few love bites. Don't worry, freshly sharpened fangs don't hurt. Much…

Length: 272 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-343-8
Price: $15.00 Limited time sale-priced for $10.50

The man on his arm isn't nearly as scary as the man in the mirror.

Hunter Willis's "Guy Town" passport was stamped and in as good working order as his Harley. Like a good Midwestern jock, he'd ride that manly machine to his construction job every day, even throw back a few beers with the boys. Hockey and baseball filled out his single-dude weekends.

Then, summer heat worked its magic, and he fell in love with his best friend, sexy stockbroker Maxwell Daniels. The Harley is still in the garage, but the man is definitely–and lustily–out of the closet. As in tearing the door off its hinges.

Now that Hunter's in love, he's in all the way. Even proposed–and Max has accepted. But before their dream wedding in Vermont next spring, they must face the greatest danger to their perfect love.

Meeting the family.

It's not just enduring the Daniels clan's magnifying glass. It's facing the deep, dark fears and secrets that are suddenly brought into sharp focus. Forcing them to decide if theirs is only a summer fling…or a love that can flourish even in the chill of winter.

Product Warnings: This novel contains one hero's deep love for a bread machine, wedding day jitters, erotic cross-dressing–and absolutely zero bridezillas.

Miss Minnie and the Brass Pluggit Miss Minnie and the Brass Pluggit by Sahara Kelly
Genre: Historical
Length: 232 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-342-1
Price: $14.00 Limited time sale-priced for $9.80

He isn't made of brass…but that won't stop him from steaming up her nights.

Flouting convention and raising eyebrows from aristocratic drawing rooms to Whitehall, Lady Minnie Dalrymple takes men to her bed as she pleases. She doesn't do favors outside the boudoir, particularly for politically powerful men whose motives are rarely pure. Yet when her lover asks her to visit the mysterious Dr. Pierce Lowell, she's intrigued. Why should she be asked to essentially spy on the reclusive scientist?

Pierce has several projects under development, none of which he cares to share with the public. The arrival of any unexpected guest rouses suspicion, but the wealthier-than-God, eccentric young widow certainly isn't threatening…not to his experiments, anyway. To his heart? That's another matter entirely.

Their lighthearted, mutual exploration is interrupted by the discovery of a woman's body found strangled just offshore. When Minnie learns this is the fourth such crime, it isn't difficult to convince Pierce that working at his side to uncover the plot is the safest place to be. Until she is kidnapped. To save the woman he has come to love, Pierce must call on every ounce of ingenuity and brilliance–and reveal his most closely guarded secret.

Product Warnings: Contains scientific references, unlaced Victorian desire and some really nasty villains at war with fascinating machines. Author is not responsible for any consequent urge to dismantle a vacuum cleaner and build a mechanical man.

Genre: Contemporary, GLBT
Length: 272 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-347-6
Price: $15.00 Limited time sale-priced for $10.50

Beauty is only skin deep…until love reveals what lies beneath.

As mob boss Yvgeny Mosko's open secret, Dylan Anderson is happy enough with a passionate, if loveless, arrangement that affords him a life of luxury. But at thirty-six, he wonders how committed Mosko will be to an aging lover.

He finds out when a rival gang kidnaps him in a turf war everyone's sure to lose. Mosko unleashes deadly force, leaving no one alive except for a young man whose dark eyes tug at Dylan's heart–and the conscience he thought he'd excised long ago.

 
Though he tried to stop the kidnapping, William "Memo" Escobar knows Mosko will use what's left of him to send a powerful message to his rivals. When Mosko's pampered pretty boy risks everything to help him escape, he can't believe his luck.

William figures he's better suited to life off the grid, but as the days go by he begins to realize Dylan's beauty is more than skin deep. And as Dylan coaxes more and more beguiling smiles from William, he yearns for things–like family ties–he'd thought were best forgotten.

Yet behind their newfound happiness lurks the certain knowledge that no matter how careful they are, Mosko will come for what's his.

Product Warnings: This book contains a mob boss, a kept man, and a reluctant kidnapper who will never have to hear the words, "Size doesn't matter."

He's no one's hero. She's no one's pawn. And now they're caught in the crossfire…

Southern Arcana, Book 3

Abandoned by her wolf shifter father and raised by her human psychic mother, Carmen Mendoza can't deny she's different. She craves things most women shy away from–and she has a trail of shapeshifting ex-boyfriends to prove it.

Working at a clinic for supernatural creatures, she's escaped the notice of her father's legacy-obsessed family. Until they need a pawn in their bid for power. Snared by a vicious spell designed to wake her inner wolf, Carmen's only hope is to trust the one man strong enough to soothe her darkest instincts.

Alec Jacobson was once the heir apparent to the wolves' ruling elite, until he walked away to marry the woman he loved. She paid with her life. Now he lives as a rebel, a black-sheep alpha who protects the supernatural residents of New Orleans from the wolves' barbaric class system. Too bad he can't protect himself from his need for Carmen.

Yet staking his claim on his enemy's niece will turn his city into a battleground. Unless he can find a way to stop breaking the rules–and start making them.

Product Warnings: This book contains a renegade alpha wolf, a smart empathic doctor, very dirty sex with psychic safe-words, the occasional dominance game in and out of the bedroom, and a group of supernatural citizens ready to take on the corrupt leaders of their world.
