In the glamorous world of ballroom, love and dancing do not always mix.
Professional dancer Anita Goodman has learned that lesson the hard way. With her studio and her reputation on the line, she has to take a chance on the last person she ever wanted to partner with: her best friend.
Patrick O'Leary has loved Anita since high school, but he has languished in the Friend Zone for long enough. He will take this last chance to prove to her that love is greater than winning.
Neither of them realize that conquering their rising attraction won't be their biggest obstacle. Someone does not want them to be together, and will stop at nothing to get their way.
Love, dance, and danger. It's a Ballroom Blitz.
It takes a village, or in the case of this jaded silver fox, he needs a wife to save one.
“I need you to marry me.”
My boss cannot be serious. The ridiculously handsome man I hate-to-crush on has just proposed I pretend to be his wife for a funeral. A funeral! Only, when he dangles a much-coveted position in exchange for my time, I can’t refuse. Who am I kidding, though? I seem to have a habit of not saying no to Mr. Wright.
Things spiral out of control the second we reach my small town. A place I swore I’d never return has suddenly become my inheritance. As in, I’ve inherited an entire town! Only, there’s one condition: my hot, top executive pretending to be my wife must marry me for real. What could possibly go wrong? (insert sarcasm)
Join Jane and Mach as they road trip to a lovely mountain town where memories haunt and relationships build. And it takes (the restoration of) a village for this marriage of convenience to question the past and change the future.
L.B. Dunbar brings you a second standalone in Road Trips & Romance.

In life, my only pleasure is collecting rare, beautiful things.
Nothing, and no one, is more exquisitely beautiful than her.
When she plays the violin, I can feel her fingers along my skin.
I ache to hear her sweet pleas as I show her what it means to be owned by me.
And I will own her… body and soul.
I have savored watching her from afar, knowing that soon, she would be mine.
Bound. Breathless. Vulnerable.
She will be under my complete control.
Tonight, I will emerge from the shadows to finally claim her.
My soul is already damned, I want to taste heaven before I descend to hell.
Can you love what you can't touch?
It's the only rule in this business, and trust me, with my money and power, "hands off" is not a problem.
I don't need the women I employ to satisfy my needs...
She's different than the other girls, innocent, intoxicating, impossibly seductive.
I can't take my eyes off her, and it's not long before hot looks turn to hotter touches.
I'm the boss, after all, I call the shots.
And nothing's more fun than breaking the rules.
I came to this country to pursue my dream... but it was a lie, a scam that quickly fell apart.
Desperate, I took the only job I could with no work visa.
They promised no one would know.
They promised no touching.
Until I saw him.
Dark scruff shading an arrogant grin, lean muscles stretching expensive fabric, eyes like twilight sending electricity from my stomach to my toes.
He's my boss, but the way he watches makes me do dirty things.
For his eyes only, I'm uninhibited, experienced, a seductress.
Only, our game turns dangerous when a watcher threatens everything, and my hands-on hero vows to save me.
5 Star Review
Bethany Winters blew my mind with Nightmare. This book was everything I expected AND MORE!
Atticus and Violet have had such a toxic relationship and they only know each other in an intimate way. Neither one has ever been with anyone else and it's not like Violet could ever have that chance because Atticus is so damn obsessed with her and refuses to let her go. The last thing he wants is for her to move on from him after not being near her for 7 months. He's determined to win her back one way or another and nothing or no one is going to get in the way of it.
Atticus is reckless, determined, obsessed and downright a nightmare!
Violet may think she's okay to move forward without Atticus but she knows damn well as he does that that's not going to happen. They are both so darn obsessed with each other and damn there soooooo many hot scenes in this novella that I all hot and bothered (phew!)
I can't wait to read more on this series because this short novella was not enough!
Teagan Mercer is mine to possess and mine to break.
She has everything—she’s sexy, smart, and has doe eyes that could melt the hardest of hearts.
But I will ruin her for what she did to my family.
It’s my life’s mission to humiliate and torment her.
Bully her to submission, then …
I’ll make her pay, and I’ll enjoy every second of watching her suffer.
But the moment I touch her, the memories come rushing back, and
I’m falling into the darkness that nearly destroyed me.
Now, I’m in too deep. There’s no redemption for Teagan or myself.
They call me The Black Widow, but my real name is …
This full-length novel is a dark, secret society, enemies-to-lovers standalone featuring a vicious, damaged hero and a strong, calculating heroine. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a happily ever after guaranteed!
TRIGGER WARNING: This book is a DARK romance. It contains graphic content of abuse and assault that some readers may be sensitive to. If you have triggers or think you might, please heed this advice.
I had it all.
A wealthy family.
All the accolades and attention being the star wide receiver.
A far cry from the poor little boy who had to fight and survive the streets of Moscow.
No one needed to know my humble beginnings.
My life was uncomplicated and private and I meant to keep it that way.
No one would ever know that I harbored feelings for my father’s legal ward who lived with us throughout high school.
I was supposed to be like her protective older brother.
Not the one she needed protection from.
So I left and started fresh at Hillside University.
Determined to never let those feelings for her resurface.
For a few years, I kept those feelings in check.
However, she decided to transfer to my school out of the blue.
Older, more beautiful than ever before and was now back in my life like an unwanted sickness I couldn’t get rid of.
They say temptation is the devil looking through a key hole…
And I was one step away from opening the door.
Darling Dmitri is a standalone book in the Boys on the Hill series.
From USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen comes a passion- and angst-charged story about a woman caught between a secure relationship and a once-in-a-lifetime spark with her muse.
They say first loves are oftentimes the end of one’s innocence.
Those words couldn’t ring truer for Everlynne Lawson, whose first brush with romance came with a heartbreak … and the thing that seems to follow her everywhere she goes. Death.
After a great tragedy, Everlynne loses all she cares about—her dreams, her family, and her soulmate, Joe.
Guilt-ridden, Everlynne decides to isolate herself in Salem, Massachusetts. A shell of the woman she once was, she takes her days one at a time, careful not to allow herself the joy she believes others in her life were robbed of. But when the mysterious, handsome Dominic storms into her life, it becomes more difficult to stay in solitude. Dominic is different: adventurous, joyous, with lust for life and a passion to make her his.
Everlynne is on the cusp of reinventing herself once again when the old wounds of her past are resurrected, rawer than ever. There is nothing worse than being in love with two men.
Especially when one of them hates you.
Days missing: 1,345 days.
