Dark Rings by Lainey Delaroque
Hana, Mathias and Connor meet in a BDSM club to do one thing – play. But when a twisted organization buries its claws into each of them, how far are they willing to go to protect their dynamic?
Sedated women. Missing organs. Disappearing clients.
My job as a social worked was never supposed to be about that.
Now I can’t sit still. I need to know what’s going on.
Luckily, I got gangster friends.
I only have to make sure to keep the trouble away from Mathias and Connor.
I crossed the wrong person and lost my license. Now I’m back working in a hospital, but not as a doctor—as a spy.
And I’m a terrible spy.
But patients are going missing and my doctor’s senses are tingling – something’s horribly wrong here. Time to bring out the big brains.
Trickiest part of the plan – keep Hana and Connor safe.
What’s the worst that can happen to the IT guy? Your boss gives you the shadiest client in the universe—a hospital that wants to erase patients’ records.
I ain’t doing that.
All I want is to play with Hana and Mathias, and stay out of trouble.
But life never goes that way, does it?

When a mysterious girl shows up to his party, he feels drawn to her and makes her his…for one night.
Former beauty queen Nova Morgan is on a mission. Scantily clad as a princess from a galaxy far, far away, she sneaks into a high-profile party to capture the attention of her favorite quarterback. But her hopes crash after an awful one-night stand.
Fast-forward two years. Broke and desperate, Nova returns home to Blue Belle, Texas, where, by a cosmic twist of fate, her broody neighbor is none other than Ronan, the shiny new football coach everyone adores. But he has no idea who she is.
The booster club keeps shoving women at Ronan to keep him in town. His solution? He proposes fake dating to Nova. But things heat up for real under these Friday-night lights when he realizes she’s the one who slipped away.
Has this jaded beauty found her forever baller, or will his past keep them apart?
Last Resort by K. Bromberg
I was never supposed to see him again. Him being the man wearing the perfectly tailored suit who oozed an intoxicating mixture of wealth, rebellion, and sex appeal.
Still riding the high from last night, I walk in to meet my new client, and he’s wearing that same dangerous smirk that reeled me in hours ago.
Yes, I’m consulting for Callahan Sharpe. And yes, he’s that Callahan Sharpe.
Billionaire heir apparent who abides by no rules, bucks convention, and is determined to complete one final project to honor his late father’s legacy before walking away from the family business for good. Luckily and unluckily for me, I’ve been tasked to go to the Virgin Islands to help accomplish his goal. Callahan has no problem breaking his company’s no fraternization rule, but not me. There’s too much at stake.
What could possibly go wrong when you’re forced to work--and live—side by side with a man you can’t resist?
Are you ready to fall for the Sharpe brothers in K. Bromberg's sexy, contemporary, billionaire romance series? These books can all be read as standalones, but can be enjoyed as a series as well . . .

The Wrong Road Home by C.E. Johnson
When I moved to this small town, I was not prepared for Samantha Graves.
Not only is she my new neighbor, I unknowingly just became her landlord.
Buying thirty acres of woods and a small house sight unseen isn’t what most would call a smart decision.
But I needed to get out of New York as soon as possible and this place looked serene and private.
No one was supposed to be anywhere near me.
Especially not a gorgeous bartender who doesn’t listen, refuses to leave, and pushes all of my buttons.
She’s the most infuriating woman I’ve ever met.
She’s also the most intriguing.
I never expected feelings for her to crash into me like a head-on collision.
She's gotten under my skin and with every minute I spend with her, I fall deeper under her spell.
So when the danger from my past follows me to Calico Ridge, I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
Because protecting her is the only thing that matters anymore.
Say It's Forever by A.L. Jackson
From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes a close proximity, single-parent stand-alone romance about a woman on the run and the man who will do anything to save her…
Jud Lawson found me stranded in the rain.
Broken down on the side of the road in a deserted neighborhood with my piece of crap car.
I wasn’t looking for a hero, and definitely not one who looks like him.
An obscenely hot, mountain-of-a-man who screams danger.
But I have little choice other than climbing onto the back of his bike.
One look at Salem Aguilar, and I’m hooked.
The girl is devastation wrapped in a black, seductive bow.
Turns out, she needs a job, and I need the help.
Now I have a vixen strutting around my shop, and I’m the fool who’s itching to reach out and take what he can’t have.
But neither of us can ignore the burning attraction.
The fire that leads to a kiss.
A kiss that has us falling into my bed.
The connection that has me wanting the one thing I’d never thought I could have again.
Because monsters like me don’t deserve love.
Only Salem has a secret, too.
She’s been running for years, and her past just caught up to us…
The world took everything from us.
As survivors of not only a plane crash, but two other impossible tragedies, we’d more than earned a life of peace. But time and time again, we were shown that fate had no intention of giving that to us.
Remi and I were soulmates. Plain and simple. Our love should have died in the depths of our darkness, but the sun still exists even when it’s not shining.
The secrets of our past threatened to destroy us at every turn, but for Remi, I would never stop fighting for our future.
The world took everything from us.And we would stop at nothing until we took it all back—forever.
Traitor by Hattie Jude

Now I’ve moved back to where it all began…
With the guys I thought I’d never see again.

The only girl they would let into their inner circle.
Now they hate me.
They think I’m a traitor.
And I don’t know why.
But I am bound and determined to find out.
The problem is, there is a super fine line between hate and lust.
What happens when we all cross it?

Sabotage by Shantel Tessier
An all-new dark standalone romance from the USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Shantel Tessier.
Raylee Lexington Adams is my stepsister and the one woman in the world who can make my blood boil.
She’s vindictive, a lot of crazy, and absolutely stunning.
I hate everything about her except for when she’s on her knees begging me to use her as my own personal toy.
We’ve been playing a game of cat and mouse for far too long. We have used each other for our own sick pleasure.
I’ve ruined every relationship my little princess has ever had. A sure way that she’ll come crawling back to me, begging me for what only I can give her when another man fails her.
But I’m tired of watching others get a piece of what is mine. So, I did what any rational man would do—I staked my claim, showed the world that she belonged to me, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to make her believe it too.
Colton Remington Knox is a man I despise but can’t say no to.
He’s what any girl would call a walking red flag. But I’ve never claimed to be a smart woman when it comes to men. Why should he be any different?
I’ve always managed to hold my own against him. But this time, he’s gone too far. Posting a video of me on my knees for him, for what? To brag? Embarrass me? He’s acting like he doesn’t know me very well.
Colt wants to play a game? I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure I win. No matter what it costs me.
People already think I have no dignity, so why let them down now?

The Secret by Kristen Proby
Vaughn is everything I'm supposed to stay away from. Sexy. Cocky. And famous.
I grew up in a family full of wealthy celebrities. My father, Luke Williams, is the celebrity of them all. A superstar actor and producer, my father knows the downside of living in the spotlight. And because of that, he sheltered my siblings and me from everything Hollywood entailed. We didn't attend premieres. We weren't photographed. There were no friendships with other celebrities' children.
The limelight couldn't touch us.
But now, at twenty-five, I'm ready to start my life, working for my father's production company in downtown Seattle--until Vaughn Barrymore walks through the door.
He can't keep his hands off me. He's completely forbidden, but I can't help falling for the sweet, complicated man.
When--and it's when not if--my family finds out that I've been keeping this secret, will I have to choose between the man I love and those who mean the most to me? Or, by some miracle, can I have both?

He calls me perfect.
His flawless pet.
His good girl.

I’m worthy of his praise.

I’m a good girl, but I’m falling for the wrong man.
Emerson Grant knows what he wants--
And he wants me.
So how far will I go to hear his approval?
