2021 Audie Award Nominee for Best Romance Audiobook An Amazon Charts and Washington Post bestseller. From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story that started with a boy and girl and heats up when the man and woman reconnect. Id never forgotten him - a man Id yet to meet. Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldnt have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break. Until one day it did. Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one - one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing. Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person. Only Griff didnt want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more - more Griff, in the flesh - so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love. But what I found could change everything.

From New York Times best-selling authors, Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, comes a new standalone novel. It started out like any normal day. Then the fender bender happened. The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth. Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway - one I was excited about. Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident. Whoops! Yeah, so I didnt get the position. The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids. So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance. To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece. At least my attraction to him wouldnt be able to go anywhere. I wasnt about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed. But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasnt that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game - dont ask.) We continued to flirt without crossing the line - until it finally happened. This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right? Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs. Ours was one I didnt see coming.

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel. It was the summer of my life. Id met the guy of my dreams. Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer - and very much off-limits. But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful. He never treated me as his mother did - like hired help. Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than Id ever been loved in my life. What a summer it was. Until it all ended - badly. I was never supposed to see Gavin again. That didnt stop me from thinking about him every day for 10 years. I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away. When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again. But I wasnt prepared. What if he hated me? What if he loved someone else now? I wasnt prepared for all the unknowns. And most of all, I wasnt prepared for today to be the day he came back.

Ive got a big....ego and an even bigger bank account. Thats pretty much where my bio ends. Honestly, I dont need to say anything else. Ive just sold 99 percent of women on going home with me.
Do I sound like a jerk to you? Thats because I am.
And guess what? It works for me just fine.
Or at least it did. Until I met her.
Books talk about sparks flying. Screw that. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm.
Only one problem. She wouldnt tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest night of my life.
Now Ive had a taste of the perfect woman - and I need it again.
So whats a jerk to do?
I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.
And when I find her? Im keeping her.

Please note: This book was previously published as Dear Bridget I Want You. Only the title and cover have been changed. All other content remains the same. From The New York Times best-selling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags comes a new, sexy stand-alone novel. Dear Bridget, Im writing this letter because its highly doubtful Ill ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. Were totally wrong for each other. Youre the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. Im just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But heres the thing...for some bloody reason, I cant stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. I want you. The only reason Im even admitting all of this to you right now is because I dont believe its one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when were joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. So, whats the purpose of this note? I guess its a reminder that were adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, its to let you know that Im leaving said door cracked open from now on in case youd fancy a British bedmate in the middle of the night sometime. No questions asked. Think about it. Or dont. Whatever you choose. Its doubtful Ill even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway. -Simon

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy stand-alone novel. We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was ScreenGod, and she was Montana, but of course those werent our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind. Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape - my sanctuary. Her real name was Eden, Id soon come to find out. From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed. She was an addiction. At first, we knew nothing about each others real identities...and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise. Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous - everything Id ever wanted in a woman. But I couldnt really have her. I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were - until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her. So I took a chance. And that was when our love story really began.

Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself - over and over. Things didnt exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least.

Hed booked it for the entire summer...and I was still trying to figure out why. When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of. I should have been in college. Instead, I was living my best life...as a maid. Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbidden.

Not to mention he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning. I wanted him and made no secret of it. His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into something I might not recover from. Because hes leaving at the end of the summer. And I have no idea what Ill do when August ends.

It started out like any other morning on the train - until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle. He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world. Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God? Actually, he looked like a god. That was about it. When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out. I might have picked it up. I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers. I might have held on to the mystery man's phone for days, until I finally conjured up the courage to return it. When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me. So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office. I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first, though. I didn't expect him to text back. I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell. I didn't expect to fall for him - all before we even met.

New York Times best-seller and number one in romance. You're not supposed to want the one who torments you. When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn't prepared for how much of a jerk he'd be. I hated that he took it out on me because he didn't want to be here. I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.

Then, just as quickly as he'd come into my life, he went back to California. It had been years since I'd seen Elec. When tragedy struck our family, I'd have to face him again.

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward comes a new stand-alone novel. The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start. On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom. (The ladies room was out of order. So, I used the mens room. Dont judge.) I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents house was allergic to our cat. So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb - the British guy from the mens room. And so it began...my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order? The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons. Sometimes Id email him to express my aggravation and disdain. Hed actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me. That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was. So frustrating. And... Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet. And hot. He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year. Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us - for so many reasons. I definitely couldn't fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward comes a new stand-alone, second-chance story of forbidden love.... Its natural to want the one you cant have. And for as long as I could remember, Id secretly wanted my brothers best friend, Jace. He was six years older and always treated me like the sister he never had. Fast forward a decade. We were all in our 20s now. Jace had moved in with my brother, Nathan, and me to help us make ends meet after our parents died. It was just the three of us - an odd family dynamic. Living under our roof, Jace was as bossy and protective as ever. But he certainly didnt look at me like a sister anymore. That was what made things so complicated. I was pretty much hot and bothered 24/7. And he was torn. The signs were subtle at first. Like on movie night, Id casually rest my leg against his, and he wouldnt exactly shift away. Still, I assumed he would never...go there. Nathan would kill us. The knowledge of that wasnt enough to stop the inevitable, though. Eventually our slow burn exploded. But more than the physical attraction, wed developed a strong connection. We just couldnt get caught, right? That sounded simple. Until it wasnt. This is a story of forbidden love, broken trust, and an unexpected second chance.

Why do some lengthy sentences flow effortlessly while others stumble along? Why are you captivated by the writing of particular authors? How can you craft sentences that reflect your unique outlook on the world? This lively, 24-lecture course introduces you to the myriad ways in which we think about, talk about, and write sentences. Reviving the sentence-oriented approach to studying writing, Professor Landon provides a greater context for what makes sentences great - and how you can apply these methods to your own writing. You'll look at the kernels from which sentences grow - minimal base clauses - and how adding words or phrases creates larger, cumulative sentences that lead toward great writing. You'll explore sentence constructions that make writing more complex and add exciting levels of suspense, and see tactics that create balance and rhythm.Recognizing and appreciating these and other eye-opening aspects of sentences helps you understand the work that goes into creating an effective, pleasurable sentence, which can make you more aware of why particular lines, passages, or phrases in the poems, novels, or articles you read so enchant you. Professor Landon draws abundantly on examples from the work of brilliant writers, including Don DeLillo, Virginia Woolf, Samuel Johnson, and more. With its passionate approach to writing and reading and its indulgence in the sheer joy of language, this journey gives you unique insights into the nature of great writing-and also teaches you how you can achieve some of this greatness yourself.

Single dad. Second chances. Meet Mack in the newest standalone novel from New York Times best-selling author, Penelope Ward. They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right? So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen. At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women. Everyone wanted a piece of the hot, single father of the sweet little boy. I became a woman I didn't recognize, someone riddled with jealousy, because they didn't know that - to me - he was much more. They didn't know about our past. He'd chosen my school for his son on purpose, because Mack and I, we had unfinished business. As my friend, Lorelai, so eloquently put it: "Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls." And I was suffering in pain from my case. I was still intensely attracted to Mack. I tried to resist him, immersing myself further into a relationship with someone else just to protect my heart. Not to mention, getting involved with a parent was strictly against school rules. But seeing Mack day in and day out was breaking me down. And soon I might be breaking all the rules. Author's note: Told in alternating points of view, Mack Daddy is a full-length standalone novel.

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward comes a new, sexy stand-alone novel. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I'd never been able to forget - even though he so easily forgot about me - and call him. Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you've had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless prank call. Instead I went off on him - unloading 13 years of pent-up emotions. I didn't think he'd call me back. I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he'd become. Turned out Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn't know. And he had his own secrets. Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night I did something impulsive again. Only this time I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake. A complete stand-alone.

A stand-alone novel that does not need to be heard in conjunction with any other book. From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward comes a friends-to-lovers story with sexy new characters. After getting dumped, the last thing I needed was to move next door to someone who reminded me of my ex-boyfriend, Elec. Damien was a hotter version of my ex. The neighbor I dubbed "Angry Artist" also had two massive dogs that kept me up with their barking. He wanted nothing to do with me. Or so I thought until one night I heard laughter coming through an apparent hole in my bedroom wall. Damien had been listening to all of my phone sessions with my therapist. The sexy artist next door now knew all of my deepest secrets and insecurities. We got to talking. He set me straight with tips to get over my breakup. He became a good friend, but Damien made it clear that he couldn't be anything more. Problem was, I was falling hard for him anyway. And as much as he pushed me away, I knew he felt the same, because his heartbeat didn't lie. I thought my heart had been broken by Elec, but it was alive and beating harder than ever for Damien. I just hoped he wouldn't shatter it for good. Author's note: Neighbor Dearest is a full-length stand-alone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

From New York Times best-selling author, Penelope Ward, comes a new novelette. The first time I met Jade Jameson, I lost my words and accidentally dropped a beer bottle, smashing it to the ground. The Broadway star sister of my brother's wife had paid us a surprise visit on Christmas. Quite simply, she was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen; I was mesmerized. I'd made a fool of myself, though, and to make matters worse, my girlfriend was standing right there when it all happened. Jade went back to New York, and we didn't cross paths again for a year - until one night when a Facebook notification lit up my screen, setting off a chain of events that would change my life forever. Jaded and Tyed is a 16,000 word novelette. (The length is shorter than a novella.)

My name is Sevin. Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin. Elle was the girl who'd been carefully chosen for me. After a long-distance courtship, I'd be moving into her family's guest house so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding. Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage. I'd accepted those rules and my fate - until I met the one I wanted to sin with. That was when restraint became a problem, especially since "the one" wasn't Elle; it was her sister, Evangeline. Contains mature themes.
