Imposing Saint - Jess Bryant

Aaron Laughlin is young, rich, and a star among the Nashville political elite. That’s why nobody is more surprised than him when he ends up abandoned at the altar. But here he is, dumped on the most important day of his life, embarrassed in front of his entire city, and left with a bruised ego in place of a broken heart.

My Irresistible Enemy - Spencer Spears

Aiden: In my defense, I didn’t expect to be cast on a reality baking show when I started my cam boy account. I’m just crossing my fingers no one from A Piece of Cake discovers my salacious side hustle—but I never counted on Nolan McAllister…

Quiet, self-possessed, and infuriatingly attractive, Nolan would be perfect—if he weren’t also aloof, stuck-up, and judgemental. The worst part? He accidentally walked in on me filming a very compromising video for my fans, and now he holds my future in his hands.

But when Nolan and I find out we were only cast on the show for diversity points, everything changes. We’ll both be sent packing, unless we can come up with a reason for the producers to keep us around.

My solution? We pretend to fall for each other. There’s nothing America loves more than a co-star romance. The only problem is that the more time I spend with Nolan, the more I realize he’s not what he seems. And as things heat up, it gets harder and harder to keep my hands—and other body parts—off of him.

Xander Romano maintains control at all times – no distractions allowed. No fooling around with straight guys, and *definitely* no vanilla guys. Been there, done that, got his heart broken. All Xander wants now is to focus on his career, and keep his darker desires under wraps. So what is it about Ben Ballard that makes him want to break all his own rules?

Join Ben and Xander in their continuing odyssey of self-discovery, experimentation, and sexy fun as they work out the kinks together...and fall for each other along the way.

Got Me Hoping - Casey Cox

It's just a one-night stand, they said. It'll be simple, no-strings fun, they said. They. Lied.

I'm done with love and being broken-hearted. The only dogs I want to deal with are the ones I treat in the veterinary clinic I work at. But at thirty-four, having my first one-night stand can't hurt. Right? The rules are pretty simple.

1. Don't spend the night.
2. Don't see him again.
3. Don't share anything personal.
4. Don't fall in love with him.

But when Haze, the guy I spent a blazing hot night with and haven't been able to forget about, shows up as our new receptionist, the rules fly out the window. There's no way one night could lead to anything more. So why has Haze got me hoping this might just last?


Not So Nice - Emma Lyon

Being in unrequited love sucks. Especially when he’s a jerk. And a billionaire. And your boss.

For the last year and a half, Nathan Graham has been the bane of my existence. Demanding. Unpredictable. Stupidly handsome. I’m not sure how much more I can take. Especially when he involves me in his convoluted plans. Fake dating? Worst idea ever. I only wish I didn’t secretly like it so much.

My reputation is keeping me from closing the deal of the year, and to get what I want I have to show how committed I can be. Putting my personal assistant Ryan forward as my boyfriend at an upcoming tech summit should do the trick, even if it’s fake. The only problem is Ryan. Because lately I can’t stop thinking about him....


Odd Man Out - Colbie Dunbar & Trisha Linde

They say beauty only runs skin deep… but what if no one bothers to look beneath the surface?

Omega Joel has always been a bit of an odd duck. A square peg, an eccentric… a misfit. He doesn’t fit into his mother’s perfect new family, he doesn’t fit in with the rich kids at school, and as he gets older and heads off for college, he knows he doesn’t fit into anyone’s idea of a love interest. Not that it matters, because no alpha will ever compare to his best friend, Toban.

Alpha Toban is a good friend and he reminds himself of this daily. Friends watch out for each other, and they most certainly do not fall in love. Toban has been in love with Joel pretty much since the first moment he laid eyes on him, but he knows that he’ll never be good enough for the omega.


The Manticore Manny - Hawke Oakley

A human omega can't be soulmates with a venomous, man-eating beast, right?

Chris can't catch a break. After his daughter's alpha father abandoned them, he's been struggling to keep them afloat and make sure Zoey has the life she deserves. When Chris scores his dream job at a local bakery, there's one big problem. He can't bring Zoey to work, and he can't afford a babysitter—and Chris refuses to let his daughter feel abandoned again.

Salvation walks through the front door in the form of a smoking-hot alpha. Roshan is a manny unlike any other. He's qualified and highly affordable, but there's a catch: he won't work for just anyone. He's notoriously picky, having turned down every client so far—until he meets Chris.

Roshan knows Chris is the one. But can a manticore shifter truly be fated to a human omega? And how many cupcakes must die before they finally confess their love?
