âWeâve never kissed.â
Oh God. My stomach plummeted with the minor chords. âNo.â
âAnd physically we donât know if we are even compatible.â His gaze swept over me. âI mean, youâre a wee lass.â
âWee lass! Donât youâ¦â
âBut.â His gaze intensified. Heaven crashed to earth and obliterated us.
âBut?â Shaky and wanton, I warmed on the inside like a chocolate fondue.
âSince Iâve known you, itâs been the most natural thing to hold your hand. From the earliest days even when I knew I shouldnât, I still did it. It felt like nothing and everything all at once.â
I breathed in slow. Lest I might pass out.
âSo I think if holding your hand feels like everything, then what happens if I do this?â
I forced myself to maintain eye contact as, with his free hand, he used a finger to trail up my throat and along the edge of my coat collar. I held in my breath as he then ran it along my cheekbone, around my ear, slipping into my hair.
âYou almost kissed me once.â I stuttered the words, each syllable gushed with the pound of my heart.
âI know.â I could taste his breath, feel the warmth of his mouth hovering just above mine. Sweet Sake and Matthew combined. I wanted to inhale him.

She loves karaoke, makeup, and of course a good glass of wine. She mixes her love of words with her love of music and hopes to transport you into a world you don’t want to leave.
What She Didn’t See
He set off across the street, and she followed, not wanting to be alone in this city of death. Her heel crunched in glass fragments. He held up the tape that designated this a crime scene, and she ducked under it. It was all pretend. She saw herself doing everything, looking like an actor on a cop show.
The car riddled with bullet holes belonged to the movie too. The prop crew had put that tire there for her to cower behind for safety from the gunfire. She peered down at the space where she’d taken shelter from the danger, the place where Lena had pushed her to protect her when the shooting started.
She gulped down the lump in her throat. The last thing Lena did in this life was save her. She didn’t save herself. She was too thoughtful for that. While Grace was thinking about dragging Lena back home to start their lives as adults, Lena was saving her from that … that …
She looked up to find Luke inspecting her. Could he see what a terrible friend she had been? Had Lena’s sacrifice left visible scars on her skin?
“What do you know about the shooter?” she asked to distract them both.

I'd been fighting all my life.
Making it my career choice seemed...logical.
Sticking to what I was good at seemed...illogical as often as I ended up in the ER.
Then my occupational hazard began to feel like more of a perk when I met, Katy. She was a night nurse at the ER I frequented. She could barely hide her contempt for me, which naturally made the curvy brunette with long wavy hair all the more irresistible.
??? ? ???? ?????? ?? ???????? ??? ? ??? ? ?????? ????? ???? ? ???????.
They called him Dagger, for the looks he gave.
He knew I hated him on sight, but still, he teased me and tried to sway me.
There's no way it would work. I was on the run and still healing from a relationship with a 'roid-raging powerlifter. No way was I going to give it a go with someone trained to cause pain for a living.
Then my ex tracked me down. And suddenly, having a fighter in my corner didn't seem like such a bad idea.

JUST ONE YEAR IS LIVE!
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone 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 men’s room. Don’t 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 men’s 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 I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.
He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.
That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.
Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.
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.

4.5 Heart Review by Lorena
My god, I F.L.O.V.E. college romances. Something about them always gives me these wonderful goosebumps that I can't seem to shake off.
Caleb and Teagan surely gave me goosebumps with their banter. They were so freaking cute and just imagine in my head how he spoke with his British accent (I love foreign accents) for some reason that's such a major attraction and when Caleb and Teagan have such a strange first encounter I couldn't stop laughing at the antics.
They may have started on the wrong foot but they certainly made up for it.
I swoon with every Penelope Ward book and I always know that she will break my heart one way or another each and every book but she always manages to stitch it back together.
Penelope Ward is a New York Times, USA Today and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of contemporary romance.
She grew up in Boston with five older brothers and spent most of her twenties as a television news anchor. Penelope resides in Rhode Island with her husband, son, and beautiful daughter with autism.

AFTER THE FALL (The Fallen Men #4) by Giana Darling
Release Date: March 13th
Add to Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/42667374-after-the-fall
I was settin’ up to live a good life, the kinda life I’d fought hard to deserve.
With a good woman––the best woman––at my side, a degree under my belt, and the whole world at my feet, I was livin’ the kinda happily ever after usually denied the rebellious and the criminal. I’d turned my back on that kinda life, thinkin’ I needed that clean, wholesome kinda happy.
Then the devil came dressed in the wings of an angel and took someone from me.
And I realized I was wrong.
There was no clean and wholesome for a man like me with poetry in his heart and outlaw in his blood. The life I’d been livin’ was only purgatory, holding me over until the time came for me to descend into Hell and pick up the tarnished crown that awaited me.
I was condemning my woman to a life of violence, blood, and heartache, but I had to hope she’d step up and finally be the rough and tumble queen to my Fallen MC king.
After the Fall can be read as a stand-alone romance, but you first meet the couple in Lessons in Corruption (The Fallen Men, #1)
