Burned Burned by Nikki Duncan
Genre: Contemporary, Red Hots!!!
Length: Novella, ISBN: 978-1-61921-145-2, Series: Whispering Cove
Price: $3.50 Limited time sale-priced for $2.45

Behind every stubborn man's downfall (into love) is a determined woman.

Whispering Cove, Book 4

Vic Hayes is content with life in Whispering Cove. She owns a successful salon, has great friends and her perfectly manicured nail is on the pulse of the town's gossip. For real happiness, she's only missing one thing–a man. Settling for less than the perfect man, though, isn't in her nature. He just has to see her as more than his best friend.

Widower Hauk Michaelsen always dreamed of escaping Whispering Cove, until single fatherhood, too young, made it impossible. He enjoys his life as owner of the small town pub. Friends, gossip, and his young daughter keep things jumping. He would do anything for his little girl, but he can't give her the one thing she desires most–a mother.

When Vic and Hauk are teamed up for a Fall Festival project, sparks ignite suppressed flames. Testing boundaries they've never crossed, they find themselves eager to risk more–if Vic can convince Hauk that history won't be repeated if he takes another chance on love.

Product Warnings: To all the lonely guys out there: beware best (girl)friends and invites for coffee at the crack of dawn. It's possibly not your double shot mocha latte she's looking to wrap her hands or her lips around.

Genre: Contemporary, Red Hots!!!
Length: Novella, ISBN: 978-1-61921-146-9, Series: Whispering Cove
Price: $3.50 Limited time sale-priced for $2.45

A woman on fire with desire. A man with the right equipment to fan the flames.

Whispering Cove, Book 6

Josie Wells's libido is in an uproar. Her psychic promised she'd meet Mr. Right–two months ago. Her good-girl image is wearing thin, and when she gets the chance to have a little fun with town bad boy Adam Collins, she decides to go for it. The notorious playboy will be perfect for some no-strings play time until the real thing comes along.

Knowing he goes for the brazen type, Josie pours on the heat to seduce him at the town's Festival. The kiss they share touches off an explosion of passion she never saw coming.

Adam's always been crazy about Josie, but he's never been willing to expose such a nice girl to the Collins Curse. She deserves the big house with the white picket fence–with a man who doesn't have failed relationships written all over his family tree.

As their brief affair starts to become something more–and the town psychic predicts that Josie is destined to be his–Adam dares to hope there's a chance. But then he learns a secret that makes him question what's real…and what isn't.

Product Warnings: Contains hot sex against a fire truck, a sexy firefighter who's willing to do what it takes, and enough orgasmic explosions to rock your world!

Bold Bold by Mackenzie McKade
Genre: Contemporary, Red Hots!!!
Length: Novella, ISBN: 978-1-61921-147-6, Series: Whispering Cove
Price: $3.50 Limited time sale-priced for $2.45

She's more spice than sugar…and he has a taste for heat.

Whispering Cove, Book 5

Tabatha Taylor has mooned over her brother's best friend since childhood. For years she's been chipping away at his cool façade, using the generous, all-grown-up assets God gave her to her advantage.

Finally she has a chance to work close to him on a project for the Fall Festival. Going nose to nose with him will prove her ideas have merit, even if she doesn't have a degree. But she learns the cost to her heart could be bigger than she anticipated.

Tabby's dark beauty definitely sets architect Reece McGrath's pulse racing, but she's an itch better left unscratched. The attraction that flares between them is hot and undeniable, but getting close means risking a friendship he values and a lifestyle he cherishes. Crossing that boundary isn't worth the price he'd have to pay.

With one of the grandfathers of Whispering Cove pinpointing them in another matchmaking scheme, though, they find themselves inching closer to that line. And closer…

Product Warnings: This book gives new meaning to getting nailed. Nothing beats a man with a variety of tools at his disposal and a woman who is bold enough to take him on.

Just Right Just Right by Erin Nicholas
Genre: Contemporary
Length: Novel, ISBN: 978-1-60504-947-2, Series: The Bradfords
Price: $5.50 Limited time sale-priced for $3.85

If only he wasn't so good at being bad…

The Bradfords, Book 1

Dr. Ben Torres, better-than-a-Boy-Scout, surgeon extraordinaire, has been interested in ER nurse Jessica Bradford–and her bright red peek-a-boo thong–for a long time now. But punching a patient in the nose–and the subsequent suspension–is probably not the best way to get on her good side.

Or is it?

Jessica is one step away from the big promotion she's worked for all her professional life, and now everything rides on her ability to keep Dr. Perfect–aka handsome, heroic Ben–on a short leash until the potential lawsuit blows over. And to keep her raging crush on him under wraps.

First order of business is to pry her knight in shining scrubs' perfect ass off a bar stool. Except he refuses to move until she agrees to–and then loses–a bet for 48 hours of her undivided attention.

It's all downhill from there. And despite herself, Jessica can't help but give in to the temptation to go down with him…

Product Warnings: Contains hot love in a store dressing room and in the front seat of a car–at the expense of a very nice strawberry patch, unfortunately–oh, and hooker boots.  Can't forget the hooker boots.

Just Like That Just Like That by Erin Nicholas
Genre: Contemporary
Length: Novel, ISBN: 978-1-60928-057-4, Series: The Bradfords
Price: $5.50 Limited time sale-priced for $3.85

Some rules just beg to be broken.

The Bradfords, Book 2

Sam Bradford knows a lot about women and a lot about sex. Considering how much time he's spent on both, it's no wonder he's regarded as something of an expert. So, when two women set him up with their sister for one purpose only–show her what great sex can really be like–he's definitely willing and able.

With the right tools Danika Steffen can fix anything–even her needs in the bedroom. But her sisters know that if they want her to have a happily ever after, they need to show her that there are very good reasons to let a guy closer than arm's length.

This should all be a piece of cake for the notorious playboy. It won't even violate his one-night-only rule. Until a date with Danika Steffen ends not in her bed, but with a trip to the ER.

Danika may have a broken wrist, but Sam's the one suffering…an intense case of guilt. And instead of doing things to her, he only wants to do things for her. Which would drive her crazy if not for the sneaking suspicion that Sam needs a little TLC too. And damned if she doesn't want to be the one to give it…

Product Warnings: Contains an I'll-do-it-myself girl who can fix anything, a commitment-phobic guy who can't fix anything, and a whole new way to look at butter. Yes, butter.

Just My Type Just My Type by Erin Nicholas
Genre: Contemporary
Length: Novel, ISBN: 978-1-60928-189-2, Series: The Bradfords
Price: $5.50 Limited time sale-priced for $3.85

Secretly wanting her–no problem. Her not-so-secretly wanting him–big trouble.

The Bradfords, Book 3

There's only one problem with the woman Jason "Mac" Gordon wants: his best friend's little sister is off limits. Way off limits, and too young and innocent for the likes of him. From past experience, he's learned to hide his not-so-nice preferences from the nice girls he seems to attract. That definitely includes the woman he's always thought of as a sister. At least until recently.

Sara Bradford always gets what she wants–which is partly Mac's fault. After all, he helped spoil her. So she has no intention of taking his no for an answer on anything–least of all his refusal to sleep with her. He thinks she's too innocent? Fine. She'll simply get un-innocent and show Mac that she wants him–the good, the bad and the nipple clamps.

When Mac's plan to drive her away works too well, he's forced to follow her to a tropical paradise, determined to make sure she doesn't find her wild side with anyone but him. Once she gets a real taste of what he likes, he's sure everything will go back to normal.

That's until he discovers a slight kink, er, flaw in his logic…

Product Warnings: Contains hot sex at the beach, kinky online shopping–and yes, cotton-candy-flavored body powder does exist.

Price: FREE

With friends like these…they may never date again!

A Bradfords series short story.

Out of their entire group of friends, Kevin Campbell and Doug "Dooley" Miller are the last bachelors standing. And if their friends' wives have anything to say about it, they're both going down–the sooner the better.

Sure, sometimes it's torture to stand by and watch their friends enjoy true love. But all that touching, teasing, and goo-goo eyes? It gets old. Plus, Kevin and Dooley have their reasons for staying single, and a trio of meddling women can't change that.

Or can they?

That's the question that's making them nervous. Very nervous…

Product Warnings: This Bradfords series epilogue contains six meddling friends, two sworn bachelors and a bunch of crazy set-ups. It's also a sneak peek at the next two books where Kevin and Dooley do find true love…without any help from their friends.

Fox's Folly Fox's Folly by Teresa Noelle Roberts
Genre: Red Hots!!!, Shape-shifters, Gay Alternate Worlds
Length: Novella, ISBN: 978-1-61921-104-9, Series: Duals and Donovans: The Different
Price: $3.50 Limited time sale-priced for $2.45

What happens in Vegas lasts forever…if you're lucky.

A Duals and Donovans Story

Las Vegas is the wrong place for an inexperienced witch like Paul Donovan. But he has no choice; his family owes a debt of honor to a half-fae casino owner, whose guests have been dying under mysterious circumstances. The normy police haven't connected the dots between the deaths, and the owner has called in his marker.

When Paul literally runs into fox dual Taggart Ross, the instant, powerful attraction between them bristles with red flags. Not only should there be no sparks between him and this "hillbilly with a tail", the fact is a dual couldn't have committed murder-by-magic. But until he's got proof, caution rules.

Tag's own suspicions are on high alert. Magic killed his favorite uncle, and Paul, who senses Tag's dual nature way too easily, should be a prime suspect. Except Tag's libido responds to the witch in a way that shouldn't happen.

Whatever this thing is between them, the raw sexual energy feeds a power that becomes their best hope of drawing out the killer before he, she, or it strikes again. Until love gets involved, and things get real complicated, real fast…

Product Warnings: Sly foxes, smoky Southern drawls, sex magic, dangerous demons, tacky Las Vegas glitz, and did we mention the hot guy-on-guy sex?

The Healing & the Dying The Healing & the Dying by L.A. Witt
Genre: Red Hots!!!, Ménage & More, Shape-shifters, Vampires, Gay Alternate Worlds
Length: Novel, ISBN: 978-1-61921-120-9, Series: Tooth and Claw
Price: $5.50 Limited time sale-priced for $3.85

Doing the right thing could destroy everything…

Tooth & Claw, Book 2

Levi, Ian, and Darius escaped death-by-wolf-pack by the skin of their teeth, but they're not out of the woods. The wolves are relentless. Help from humans? Not likely. Their only hope is a vampire commune in remote western Canada–if they make it in one piece. Even then, there's no guarantee they'll be offered sanctuary.

First challenge is to get there. Sunlight is deadly. Money is dwindling. Police and wolves alike are on the hunt.

Worse, Levi hasn't recovered physically or emotionally from the accident that broke several of his bones and killed his best friend. He desperately wants Ian or Darius to turn him, which would heal his wounds, speed their escape, and sever his last tie to the wolves that made his life hell.

Yet Darius hesitates, caught between his desire to help his lover, and fear that once this is all over, Levi and Ian will have no use–or desire–to keep him in the picture. And that's assuming they all make it to the end of this alive…

Product Warnings: Contains two vampires and a werewolf who would really like to just sit down somewhere and lick their wounds, but are too damned busy stealing cars, avoiding sunlight, eluding police, arguing, jumping off roofs, and plotting new and innovative ways to weasel past customs. Oh, and plenty of scorching hot sex between three very, very dirty boys.

Price: $4.99 Limited time sale-priced for $3.49

Her will to succeed is unbreakable. But to find love, she must learn to bend.

Her father's unjust execution drove Honor Elliott to practice law in a world that believes she belongs in the background. She hopes things will be different in Manhattan with her new husband and fellow attorney, Robert. While he quickly finds work, she winds up writing contracts for second-rate actors.

An actress's lawsuit against a former lover sends Honor marching into Nevada LaRouche's office to give him a chance to settle out of court. When she comes face-to-face with the unconventional businessman, though, flying sparks warm their confrontation to grudging respect.

Another opportunity to represent a socialite in a high-society divorce ends far differently–with Honor left beaten and bleeding. Nevada comes to her rescue, but Robert shows his true colors by insisting she violate her principles to save his career.

But for Honor, retreat has never been an option. She has a chance to defend a controversial woman doctor, and she will boldly follow her dreams…even if it means daring to walk out of her safe marriage and into Nevada's arms. No matter what the cost.

This book has been previously published.

The Legendary Warriors, Book 3

Ten years after she survived a cholera epidemic that wiped out her entire wagon train, Carolyn White is on a quest to shake off the bad luck that follows her everywhere and which now threatens her adopted family. The unending string of mishaps can have only one source: the gold piece that she, in childish innocence and wonder, once took from a stolen cache.

She tells herself her journey to Crow Country is merely to put the piece back in the cave where she found it. Yet in her heart, she knows it's the memory of Lone Arrow, the boy who sheltered her there. The boy whose face, now that of a man's, inhabits her dreams.

Lone Arrow's anger knows no bounds. Anger with the white woman he suspects isn't being truthful to him. Anger with himself that he cannot ignore the beauty who captured his heart even as a boy. Though trust is in short supply, he can't deny his burning need for her. Whatever else she may be, she is his destiny.

This book has been previously published.
