    Synopsis:

    From New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, comes the first book in a new, sexy duet.

    How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

    Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

    Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

    How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

    Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

    Check. Check. Check.

    I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

    Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

    Especially when he’s mean to you.

    Or so I thought.

    Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

    That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

    And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

    I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

    I wasn't supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

    As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

    All good things must come to an end, right?

    Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

    Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22, 2018.

    You lie.”

    REN

    Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth.

    For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend.

    But by the end…he loved me.

    The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him.

    And slowly, my secret drove us apart.

    Absinthe of the Heart (Sins of Yesterday #1) by Monica James

    Release Date: May 14

    Synopsis:

    Two households, unlike in dignity, in the City of Angels is where we lay our scene...

    London Sinclair was the boy my mother warned me about for as long as I can remember. His name alone has brought my family nothing but shame and suffering, so it’s no surprise we’ve been sworn enemies since the first moment we met.

    With his bedroom eyes and cocky smile, he has all the girls under his spell. I have one more year of school left, and then I’m home free because I’m guarding a secret, one I’m ashamed to keep.

    The boy who is completely off-limits is the one who drives me, Holland Brooks, wild. I want London, and I think…he wants me, too.

    Some may compare it to a Shakespearian tragedy, as our surnames have fated our future, but when a single night changes my life forever, I can’t leave the City of Angels fast enough.

    Ten years later, I have atoned for my sins and return to Los Angeles a changed woman. I’ve come home to get married. But the moment London walks back into my life, one thing is clear. Ten years can’t undo that night—that single, sinful night when I gave into temptation—because I want to do it again.

    Release Date: May 15

    Synopsis:

    From New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a new, sexy standalone about taking chances and finding love when it’s least expected. Or wanted.

    This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.

    It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.

    But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?

    Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen.

    But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles.

    But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life.

    And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

    Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

    Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

    Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

    Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

    Jesse Carter

    Hot as hell, cold as ice.

    I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

    New York Times Bestseller CD Reiss goes back to her roots with a dark, intense tale that breaks boundaries and shatters expectations.

    Will he sacrifice his sanity to protect you from the exquisite torture of his cruel hands?

    This is more than a marriage.

    Craving Mr. Kinky by A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm

    A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm / Via goodreads.com

    Craving Mr. Kinky by A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm

    Release Date: June 20

    Synopsis:

    Here’s a tip: When you least expect it, expect it.

    I’d been known to have my share of beautiful women. Usually, I met them in a bar, through a mutual acquaintance, or even when photographing them. Imagine my surprise when a gorgeous blonde drove her car into mine on the way to a party. 

    No more than a minute after our run-in, a string of colorful words flew from her mouth in rapid fire. Unexplainably, the angrier she became the harder I got. All sorts of scenarios played in my head of how I could get her to shut up. I was all for feisty women, but I preferred leaving that for the bedroom—not on the streets of New York. 

    When I learned she was a school teacher, that worsened my disposition. What man didn’t have a dirty teacher fantasy at one point in his life? I decided it was my turn to teach her a thing or two… or so I thought. Little did I know, Miss Prim-and-Proper would turn the tables on me.

    She called me Mr. Kinky, and that was fine with me.

    Lesson learned: Desire always trumps logic.

    Synopsis:

    She is The Controversial Princess.

    Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors - lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.

    That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defenses overwhelms her - his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.

    But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.

    And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.

But when they start competing for the same pieces of prime real estate, the early sparks turn into full-blown fireworks.

    Synopsis:

    
From New York Times Bestselling author Penelope Douglas comes a new forbidden love story…

    JORDAN

    He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.

    He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe. 

    He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work. 

    I have to stop this. It can’t happen. 

    My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable. 

    Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one. 

    I am. 

    PIKE

    I took her in, because I thought I was helping.

    She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement. 

    As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to. 

    The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me. 

    But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight. 

    And her boyfriend’s father. 

    Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house. 

    *BIRTHDAY GIRL is a stand-alone, contemporary romance suitable for ages 18+

    Synopsis:

    I couldn’t have scripted a more perfect night.

    For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I’m not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine—multimillionaire. But who’s counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met, who happens to like dancing, witty banter, and hot, passionate up-against-the-wall sex as much as I do.

    There's no need for names or business cards. And that’s why I’m eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge…bank account.

    Everything’s coming up aces. Until the next day when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash — a lot complicated.)

    ***

    He's charming, brilliant, an incredible lover, and right now I want to stab fate in the eyeballs.

    I've had one goal I've been working toward, and lo and behold, my mystery man is the very person who stands between me and my dream job. A job I desperately need since my hard-knock life has nothing in common with his star-kissed one.

    But it’s time to put that fairytale night behind me, and focus on learning what makes him tick. Too bad it turns out his quirks are my quirks, and his love affair with New York matches mine.

    And as we spend our days together, I discover something else that feels like a cruel twist of fate — I’m falling for this naughty prince charming, and that’s not an ending I can write to our story.

    Speakeasy by Sarina Bowen 

    Release Date: May 29th

    Synopsis:

    May

    Did you hear the one about the girl who walks into a bar and catches her live-in lover kissing someone else? No? You’re the only one in town who missed it.

    Luckily Alec is there to wrap me up in strong arms and carry me out the door before things get too ugly. And that’s not all Alec is good at. Our unexpected chemistry makes him the perfect rebound guy.

    Alec

    I should know better than to hook up with my rival’s little sister, but the fiery look in May’s eyes really turns my crank. She needs cheering up, and I’m just the guy for the job.

    It’s not like I’ll fall in love. Not even after a string of scorching hot trysts, and the realization that we’re good at the same things: wild nights and familial disappointment. I don’t do love, never have, never will. So this is the perfect arrangement, for both of us. 

    Nobody would approve, but nobody has to know…

    Only Him by Melanie Harlow

    Release Date: June 4

    Sometimes your first love deserves a second chance.

    He was my first crush, my first kiss, my first everything.

    But I’m not a lovesick teenager anymore, and I’d never let that cocky troublemaker break my heart again.

    So when he shows up out of the blue asking me to have dinner with him “for old time’s sake,” I say I will. After all, it’s been twelve years, and I’m stronger and smarter than I was back then.

    Except…he still does something to me. He’s got those eyes that make me weak, those hands that drive me wild, and a body I can’t resist—especially once I see the tattoos. It doesn’t take long for our trip down memory lane to go from sweet to sizzling.

    We’re just as good together as we were back then—better, even—and I’m willing to give the only man I’ve ever loved another chance.

    But he’s got to tell me the truth.

    * * *

    All I wanted was to see her again. Tell her I’m sorry. Make her smile.

    Okay, that’s a lie. I wanted to do more than that—a lot more. But I know she’s better off without me, and I promised myself I’d behave.

    Except I’ve never been much good at keeping promises…or my hands to myself when I’m around her.

    I can make her laugh, I can make her cry, I can make her body surrender to mine in ways that neither of us could have imagined back then. I can—and I do—love her more than she’ll ever know.

    But I can’t tell her the real reason why I’m here.

    And I can’t stay.
