Nightfall (Heart of the Alpha – A Paranormal Werewolf Shifter Romance Book 1) by Evelyn Glass

Roxanne Howell’s life in Sweetwater is about to change in ways she can’t imagine.
An E.R. nurse to this quaint little corner of paradise tucked away in East Texas, Roxanne knows just about everything and everyone in Sweetwater, a town without equal in the South. But her knowledge of everyone in town has left her with a profoundly boring love life. Aching for a spark to kindle a fire deep inside, Roxanne’s world is about to be turend upside down when a mysterious stranger makes his way into town.

Julian Greer is a stranger with no business in Sweetwater.
At least, that’s what it seems like when Julian Greer shows up in the E.R. with wounds all over him and no good explanation for any of them. Determined to get to the bottom of this, Roxanne stays by his side as he recovers. But there’s something different about Julian and the extent of his injuries, something wild. And as Roxanne helps him towards recovery, she’ll discover that the wildness in Julian is more than what meets the eye–it’s a wildness that she can’t quite put her finger on.

A wildness that she can’t quite enough of.

Something foul and terrible is about to fall upon the innocent town of Sweetwater
When an unforseen series of events leaves Roxanne with more questions than answers, when her curiosity for the handsome stranger transforms into a feral passionate desire, when stories meant to frighten children start bleeding into the real world, Roxanne will find herself caught in the midst of a struggle that she has no hopes of understanding, no hopes of winning–a struggle where her only chance of getting to the bottom of it all is to put her trust in the handsome and mysterious Julian Greer.

EXCERPT

“Do you love me?”

She sighed, rubbing at her temples with her free hand. “I don’t even know. That’s the part I hate. I don’t know what I feel about you. I don’t think I’ve had a chance to decide. To really figure it out. It’s been a handful of days since I met you? It feels like a lifetime, and it also feels like five minutes. I want to spend the rest of my life with you, and I want to run for the hills.”

He smiled, but the expression didn’t light his eyes. “What can I do for you, Roxanne? How can I help to make this easier?”

“Kiss me,” she said, pushing the hesitation out of her mind. “I want to be yours tonight. The rest— I don’t know. I can’t promise you anything.”

“I don’t need you to.”

Bound (Forbidden Series – Book 1) by Melody Anne

Relinquish Control has just opened its doors in Seattle, and already we are not shy for customers. Relinquish Control is an exclusive escort service catering to the most distinguished customers, from business magnates to foreign royalty. This proven and well-established international business offers an elite selection of women who are ready and willing to attend to your every need with no questions asked. Confidentiality is our special obligation.

Jewell Weston is homeless and desperate at age twenty-four. Two years ago, she quit her job to care for her ailing mother and her young brother; the medical bills incurred because of the cancer that killed her mother two months ago took everything the family had, and the state then took away her brother, now age fourteen. The only way for her to get the boy back is by finding a job and securing a home.

When she’s approached by a woman in cashmere and pearls who tells her she can change her life, and is handed a card with the business name Relinquish Control on it, she thinks she has nothing to lose by calling the phone number. Maybe this will be the answer to her prayers, a way to save her little brother from the nightmarish foster home he’s been placed in.

Blake Knight, known to the world as cold and without a heart, is given an exclusive membership to Relinquish Control by his devilish younger brother, who thinks it would be amusing to make his staid brother squirm. Little does this brother realize that Blake does indeed have unusual desires that Relinquish Control can cater to perfectly. What started as a joke turns out to be just what Blake needs. Though the world sees this man as deliberate and emotionless, it’s nothing but a façade. What lies underneath would shock all those who know him.

When he and his two brothers were six, eight and ten, they were tied up and forced to watch while their parents were murdered. The image has been burned into their minds, though they’ve tried to forget, leaving each of them guarded and unwilling to give their trust to anyone other than each other. No one is allowed to have their hearts. The brothers would never think of letting down their guard with anyone else, certainly not with a woman.

Follow Blake and Jewell’s journey and see if they can find a happily ever after…

HERO OF HER HEART by Lindsey Brookes

Now, ten years later, she’s coming back to Ruby Creek and his mother is up to her old tricks again.

Growing up, Bethany idolized Tanner. He was the HERO OF HER HEART. But to him she’d been nothing more than a tag-a-long little kid. Too tall, too thin, with unruly curls and teeth she could whistle through.

That was then. Now she’s coming back to Ruby Creek, a successful, confident businesswoman, and no longer the ugly duckling she had once been. Can Bethany convince Tanner to give love a chance? And if she does, will it be everything she had always dreamt it would be?

Showdown (Aspen Eyes Book 3) by Amy Elizabeth

* This is the third and final book in the Aspen Eyes Series. It’s recommended to read the books in sequence (Cut and Run, Indian Summer, and Showdown) to best understand the characters and story line. *

Alec’s life is at a stand-still. In the wake of his father’s death, he has withdrawn from everything and everyone around him.

He’s also struggling to make a weighty decision…undoubtedly the most difficult decision he’s ever faced.

Rebecca thought she was doing the right thing by giving Alec his space. She’d hoped that once he worked through the pain of his loss, their marriage would be stronger than ever. But the more she tries to reestablish their connection, the more he seems to pull away from her. When he finally reveals what’s on his mind–a vision of their future that couldn’t be more different than hers–Rebecca realizes that she has her own choice to make.

The only thing that’s certain is that everything on the Flying W is about to change. Especially since the greatest test of their relationship is still to come, from a source neither of them would have ever imagined…

Her Father’s Last Request by C. P. Stringham and B. Mingos

She walked away from her family’s world until…Her Father’s Last Request.Forty year-old Charlotte Hawthorne wasn’t your typical silver spoon heiress. While growing up the daughter of a prominent Connecticut family, she decided the trappings of the rich and famous lifestyle weren’t for her. Charlotte’s independent nature and liberal views were all too often an area of contention with her parents, Harrison and Regina Hawthorne. Family gatherings brought on raised tempers and ended in heated arguments. Attempts to remind their defiant daughter of her family obligations only proved to push Charlotte further away from them. Unlike her publicity-loving family, who were always ready for the perfect photo op or interview to promote their latest corporate victories or charitable good deeds, the introverted Charlotte avoided the public eye at all costs. She was happy with her simple life, working for a non-profit organization, and making a comfortable home for herself in her Upper Eastside Manhattan apartment. She’d even found a way to work around her marital status to start a family. And then, one morning, everything changed.While dealing with her own personal heartache, Charlotte suddenly finds herself immersed in the middle of an unprecedented scandal that leaves the entire Hawthorne family reeling and scrambling for containment.

Left with choosing one of three possible options, she knows that, no matter what she decides, she won’t be able to make everyone happy. Will she choose family or the most unlikely ally or refuse to get involved at all? As Charlotte enters into the unknown, an opportunity presents itself; will she take a chance on love again?
