    I also hadn't got laid in three years. Hadn't been on a date in two. Had stopped counting calories and wearing makeup... a while ago.

    24. A Lover's Lament by KL Grayson & BT Urruela (Military Romance)

    Model BT Urruela / Via Instagram

    In a matter of seconds my entire world changed, and it was in that moment that I stopped living and simply began to exist.

    In my grief, I sent a letter to the first boy I ever loved. I hoped in writing it I’d find some peace from the nightmare I was living, some solace in my anger.

    I didn’t expect him to write back. I wasn’t prepared for his words, and I certainly wasn’t ready for the impact this soldier would have on my life. A deep-rooted hate transformed into friendship, and then molded into a love like I’d never known before.

    Sergeant Devin Ulysses Clay did what I couldn’t: he put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, restoring my faith in humanity and teaching me how to live again.

    But now that I’m whole, I have a decision to make. Do I return to my life as I knew it and the fiancé I left behind, or do I walk away from it all for the only man to ever break my heart?

    ***

    I’ve been living in hell, but you won’t hear me complain.

    These men depend on me, as I do them, and this brotherhood is the only family I’ve ever known.

    The Army saved me from a callous mother and a life on the wrong side of the tracks that was quickly spiraling out of control. So unlike most of the men in my platoon, going home wasn’t something I longed for.

    I was content overseas, spending my days defending this country that gave me my life back. Fighting became my new normal … until her.

    A letter from Katie Devora—a letter that I almost didn’t open. Her words put a fire back inside of me that I didn’t know I’d lost. She gave me hope during a time when I was fighting every day just to stay alive, and now it’s time I fight for her.

    They became my addiction, each a needle to my next hit, my high.

    Brock Cunningham’s appeal is dizzying, a potent force Amber can’t deny. A green-eyed smooth talker, he instantly attracts Amber. It doesn’t take long for him to consume her every thought, her every breath.

    Ryder Ashcroft, a blue-eyed, tattooed, and pierced bad boy, turns Amber off immediately—that is, until he kisses her, stealing a piece of her heart, her soul.

    They were as opposite as fire and ice, yet I ached for them equally.

    Never knowing she could be broken down in so many unexpectedly beautiful yet petrifying ways, Amber finds herself falling for both men.

    Immoral? Maybe. I say undeniable. Uncontained.

    But one event changes everything, shattering each of their lives…and Amber isn’t sure she can come back from it.

    There are many rules a priest can't break.

    A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God.

    I've always been good at following rules.

    Until she came.

    My name is Tyler Anselm Bell. I'm twenty-nine years old. Six months ago, I broke my vow of celibacy on the altar of my own church, and God help me, I would do it again.

    I am a priest and this is my confession.

    Mia Sheridan / Via MiaSheridan.com

    A full-length, standalone romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice.

    Kira Dallaire is desperate.

    Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.

    Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.

    Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.

    What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.

    As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.
