Summary

When the invitation arrived, it detailed the rules of the masquerade - no names, no identities. I set one more - find a most wicked man for one night. The kind who'll bring me deliciously naughty pleasure in dark corners. But as the clock ticks to midnight, he finds me, whisks me away to a secret alcove, and delivers all that dirty bliss and then some. We make arrangements for another secret rendezvous before I rush out of the ball. But fate has other plans, since I see my most wicked man the next morning. Because that man is the billionaire owner of the hotel across the Strip from mine. My rival. My enemy. We vie for business every second of every day, so the last thing I can do is let him in my bed at night. I give in one final time, in a daring, risqué game of chance, and then I vow to resist. And that's what I do every time I see him, every time I get to know the brilliant, mercurial man who wants a piece of my business. Until the night he ups the stakes. And I have no choice but to see his bet and raise it. Performed by Joe Arden, Emma Wilder, and Shane East, One Exquisite Touch is a sexy rivals-to-lovers stand-alone, rich with masquerades, billionaires, and forbidden trysts!

Vivienne is one of “those” people, the kind who believes in love at all costs. Broken hearts are a natural product of that, and Viv is used to dealing with it by simply ignoring the ache and moving on to a new love.

He has a penchant for saying just the right things at just the right times, being just the kind of friend that’s needed in the midst of sorrow. But as he and Viv embark on what was only ever intended to be a friendship, the idea of Carter as the “perfect” guy is challenged, and the real person could very well just be the next guy to break Viv’s heart.   Old hurts are unraveled, familial bonds are tested, and hearts are put on the line in this story of two people who didn’t mean to fall in love.   Please note that this is a spin-off of A Crazy Little Thing Called Love and does contain major spoilers for that title.

Ante Up

Summary

I know exactly why it turns you on...because you're messed up too. Asha's life is no fairytale, by any stretch of the imagination. There was no kind, generous father to care for and protect her from the Vegas that exists beyond the glitz and glamour of The Strip. No wise, doting mother to look over and guide her, passing down essential lessons and leading her to the right path. And certainly, no Prince Charming just around the corner, ready to rescue her from working late nights to cover steadily mounting bills. You're not born to sharks without becoming one yourself. In Vegas, King is exactly what his name implies. Born into money and influence, but respected - and feared - in his own right. The privileges of wealth have afforded him many things, freedom, power, massive eligibility - while simultaneously leaving him exposed to others: betrayal, exploitation, and manipulation. Like attracts like... Her poker face has kept her alive all this time, and he keeps his cards close to his chest. Neither is interested in gambling their hearts, but when they can't stay away from each other, there's only one choice...ante up. Contains mature themes.

My Muted Love

Summary

Never judge a book by its cover. One of the world’s most common clichés. Though sage advice, the age-old aphorism is rarely followed. Take Tori McNabb and Ashton Spencer for instance, who, based on appearances, believe they have no reason to breathe the same air. But when startling circumstances align their paths on the campus of Blakewood State University, the two have no choice but to look beyond their exteriors.  McNabb is a fighter in life as well as in the ring. She knows what she’s capable of...and she doesn’t want to be tested. Her only goal is to never return to Millville, New Jersey; she just wants to fly under the radar on the BSU campus.  Spencer, the most popular athlete on campus, is well on his way to success as a professional athlete. He is confident that the stars are aligned in his favor. But being tested by the underdog is something he though he'd never fail at.  Join this unlikely pair on a journey inside the pages of their ugly covers.  This book contains some profanity and sexually explicit content. It is intended for mature listeners.

Summary

Eddie is arrogant, quite vain, and slick at the mouth - or simply confident, discerning, and unafraid to speak his mind, if you ask him. Astrid is annoyingly perky, unpolished, and a little delusional about Eddie’s attraction to her - or, according to her, energetic, authentic, and absolutely spot-on about the driving factor of a certain local tattoo artist’s “hatred” of her.  Undeniable attraction.  They may think they’re opposite but have more in common than they think. For both of them, finding a connection that is deeper than surface-level is rare. Someone they can learn from, grow with, someone who can show them things they haven’t seen before and feel things they’ve never felt, with anyone. No labels, no boxes. Just...maybe...something like love.

Summary

When the Side N*gga Catch Feelings is the story of two women who are unfaithful for two totally different reasons, yet wind up with the same catastrophic outcome.   Meet Heaven: a young girl who is loving, submissive, and beyond appreciative of her husband, Ross. As a teenager, Heaven lived solely for her sister, Divine, and her daughter, Sunshine. Because her mother is mentally ill and her father ran off, Heaven had to do some unimaginable things just to feed the family. Then came Ross, and everything changed. He wasn't some filthy rich, dope boy that some young girls dream of, but Heaven felt like Ross was her blessing. Yet, Ross turned out to be a wolf wrapped decadently in sheep's clothing. Still, Heaven was willing to take the bad just to keep the good. The drama was all worth it for the luxuries of food, clothes, and shelter, not just for herself, but, more so, for Divine and Sunshine.   And then there's Treasure. How is it that a woman can have a good man and still not be satisfied? Treasure is far from as submissive as her best friend, Heaven. As a teenager, Treasure had always been the type of girl to juggle two or three boys. Once she was older and met a real man, Vegas, she tried to commit. All of that went out of the window, though, when she met the one that allowed her to be the ride or die chick that she had always fantasized about being.   Treasure isn't the only promiscuous woman in this story, however, because Heaven eventually succumbs to the wooing of a man that wants to treat her far better than her ain't-sh*t-husband. She knows that Ross deserves her infidelity. He had never been loyal or faithful to her. However, one thing he had never done was cheat on Heaven with someone in their circle.   In this tale of lust, lies, and mayhem, Heaven fights with the feelings that she has for her side dude while Treasure basks in hers. That is, until all hell breaks loose. These two side dudes that Heaven and Treasure have fallen for pretended as if they could play second to another man...until their feelings got in the way. Then egos clash, bonds are broken, and, with two beasts like Vegas and Ross, a life is lost in this group's tight-knit circle...all because these ladies chose wrong.

His Side, Her Side, and the Truth About Falling in Love

Summary

There’s no such thing as a right time to fall in love. It happens, or it doesn’t. Possible to fake, but not force. Impossible to simply wish away. This is the path that Rob and Iris find themselves on.  He’s adjusting to cross-country move, a new job, and an existence that doesn’t include the woman he thought he’d spend his life with. She’s overburdened by her family, learning the beauty of loneliness, and just trying to...breathe. Neither of them quite ready to entertain the idea of dating, let alone love, but they can’t seem to avoid each other. He calls it “fate”. She calls it “crazy”. Maybe, neither of them is wrong.   When pretense is stripped away, and feelings - good, bad, and ugly - are laid bare, all they’re left with is their truth. It’s up to them to figure out what to do with it.

Summary

The chemistry between Stephen Foster and Nubia Perry is an undeniable fact. The handsome, dynamic former rugby star is used to getting who he wants with minimal effort, but Nubia's steadfast refusal to acquiesce - while also making it clear that she's equally interested in him - is compelling enough to keep his attention firmly planted on her. Even once it's clear that Nubia's polished façade is something she puts on for the public, to hide the scarred, vulnerable woman underneath, Stephen persists. He isn't intimated by the model-turned-mogul's aggressive personality - it only draws him in further. Relationships aren't even on Nubia's radar. She has friends, family, and her steadily growing brand. After a failed engagement to the man she thought she'd build her life with - an athlete, at that - she's not interested in anything beyond having her physical needs met. Unavoidable chemistry and close proximity work in tandem to bring these two onto the same wavelength. With the eyes of the world watching, will they deny the obvious or give in to the inevitable seductions of passion, companionship, and love? Contains mature themes.

Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Shanora Williams comes a deliciously sinful stand-alone Motorcycle Club romance with twists you won't see coming.... There’s a myth that floats around in my city. They say the president of the local biker gang is ruthless, heartless, and that once you cross him, you’ll spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder. There are whispers that he was once lost in a forest, and when he was found, he was surrounded by a pack of wolves that were protecting him. Many will tell you he’d never let his guard down for a woman, and that if he ever did, it would be bad for her. The one thing this city doesn’t know about me is that I’m not your average woman. I’m a fighter, and when someone messes with my family, I will fight, and when my freedom is stolen, I will do whatever it takes to get it back. When I’m done with him, the rumors will come to an end because I’ll be the woman who tamed this infamous biker president. I’ll be the woman who, in the end, was bad for him.

Summary

Love and hip-hop.... The two mix together smoothly, like Hennessy and Coke.  Harmony used to love love. She loved the idea of being in love. As a result, Valentine’s Day was her favorite holiday...was. Now, she hated the very thought of it. Cody had ruined it for her and any chance of her ever falling in love again. He ruined it so much that when she met Dallas, she didn’t trust him to lead her to fall in love with love again.  On Valentine's Day, Dallas experienced the biggest loss of his life. He ignorantly assumed that life couldn’t get any worse. Yet, as they say, if you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans. God must have been cracking up at Dallas’ plans because Dallas soon found himself completely lost for a year...until he met Harmony. She was perfect, yet Dallas was beyond flawed and at the lowest part of his life. He should have been honest with her when he’d first met her. Instead, he only proved to her that men couldn’t be trusted.
