“The New Recruit” by Elise Abram

When sixteen-year-old Judith meets Cain, she has no idea what she's getting herself into. Cain is the most beautiful human being Judith has ever seen, but he hides a dangerous secret. When Jo-Jo, Cain's surrogate father, offers her a job, she accepts, unaware she's been recruited as a pawn in Jo-Jo's ecoterrorist plot.

“Tempted by Ecstasy” by Dakota Trace

Calypso’s agenda continues when a lovely widow contacts her… 

Michelle Cross, or Shelli as her friends call her, is stuck in a rut. With all her kids off at college, this widowed mother splits her time between her charities, and lusting after men – well two men specifically: her late husband’s best friend, James, and her much younger gardener, Doyle. Desperate to resist temptation, she turns to an online dating, but fails horribly. It’s not until James suggests Club Ecstasy, that she decides to try one more time to exorcise the sexy pair from her every fantasy. Besides what could be better than Christmas in West Caicos? 

After making his fortune in the dot-com era, reclusive boy-genuis, Doyle Garcia took up gardening and found his new calling. He loves to get his hands dirty, and the icing on his Tia Roselina’s cake? It also allows him to tempt the luscious Widow Cross into his bed. Unfortunately, he’s not the only one with eyes for her. While he’d been known to share fishing holes with James Redding, could he also share the luscious widow with his friend? Only time will tell when James approaches him with a plan to seduce Shelli – all it will take is a couple first class trips to Club Ecstasy, and keeping his hands off James. The first will be easy? But the second, not so much – because if he finds Shelli attractive, James is temptation incarnate. Too bad he doesn’t realize he’s about to get a little help from a goddess who swears that there are no lines when it comes to no holds barred sex and love.

“Maggie” by Violet Howe

I’ve fallen in love twice in my life. 

The first time, I was nineteen. Naïve. Passionate. Willing to believe that fairy tales existed.

The choices I made for love back then ruined my ballet career, destroyed my dreams, and left my heart shattered. I survived by closing myself off to avoid repeating the same mistakes. 

This time, I'm forty-nine. Older. Wiser. Unwilling to give up my independence and risk losing myself again. 
But this city girl has never danced with a cowboy before, and his rugged good looks and gentle charm are threatening to tumble the walls I’ve built around my fragile heart. 

The past has a way of coming back around, though, and sometimes we can’t escape the mistakes we’ve made.

Then the hunters come, assassins determined to exterminate the loup-garou. Her pack insists Katey stay hidden. Safe. But that’s not in her nature. Isn’t this what she was born for? To protect and aid the loups-garous? On the run and in a battle for their lives, Katey’s new world begins to crumble around her. With werewolves, vampires, and human hunters at war, and Logan distracted by his own battles, how can Katey activate her full potential and fulfill her ancient destiny?

With nothing to eat but Frosted Flakes and no knowledge how she got there, she better find a way home before she gets her head stomped in by the bulls she must ride. Or her brother will take the throne and reduce her people to slavery. Remember, he isn’t nice.

“WAR: the 6th instalment in the Chloe Daniels Mysteries” by Deidra D. S. Green

Thunderous applause and cheers rose up from the dense crowd, enough to drown out the snipers silenced rifle. The first scream was heard as a loud cheer, as was the second and the third and the fourth. The sniper lined them up and mowed them down without anyone being the wiser, well, until the bodies began dropping. And even then, the realization that they were under attack eluded the fair goers. It would be a while before full-fledged panic set in. By that time, she would have done what she came to do. Lining the next target up in the scope of her long range “Twilight” sniper rifle, she blinked once, leveled her breathing, and when she opened her eyes, Dalia pulled the trigger again. They were still none the wiser. They were too busy celebrating…

Coming July 18th to Amazon.

“Mine to Break” by Joely Sue Burkhart

The Mistress of Dallas doesn’t date vanilla men. Mal doesn’t need to—not with all the submissives she meets at the club she sponsors or her job as Executive Producer of the most risque adult television station in Texas. But then she meets Detective Colby Wade and decides to make an exception. As a former soldier now working the narcotics task force, Colby is lean, tough, and cocky. Certainly not a submissive bone in his body. But her Mistress instincts insist that there’s more to Detective Wade beneath the surface. A silent challenge that she can’t refuse. 

It’ll be a fun night. Have a few drinks and a nice dinner. See if she can make the confident man blush or sweat a little. She’ll enjoy him while it lasts, but she fully expects him to walk away after a little taste of what a powerful, dominant woman expects in her bed. If he’s even brave enough to make it that far. 

Colby’s never met a battle that he couldn’t face with the supreme confidence of a combat Marine. After two tours in Afghanistan and years working the streets as a cop until he made detective, he’s feeling… ragged. On edge. And yeah, desperate. So far, he’s managed to hold his shit together well enough that he hopes his partner doesn’t know how close he is to exploding. He needs an outlet, a safe way to release the pent-up emotions that he keeps buried. It’s bad enough that he’s actually considered re-enlisting. 

He needs a new battle, but he doesn’t want to bring a war to the streets of Dallas. 

Instead, maybe he’ll bring that war to the Mistress of Dallas’s bed.

Coming July 25th to all sites, available for pre-order only at Amazon currently.
