What would you do to improve your life?

Twenty-one-year-old Serena Thomas is faced with a tough decision. Unable to get ahead of debt and loneliness since her grandmother’s death she finds a new job, placing the sheltered virgin in an underground escort business. She tells herself it’s just a temporary life choice, but destiny has a different plan. She meets a mysterious and gorgeous man, who happens to be her new boss. Will Serena fit in or will she be left all alone again?

Lincoln (aka: Linc) Jefferson has an unusual life. He established The Lounge, an exclusive escort club for very personal reasons. A place where the women say who, when, and what type of sex they’re willing to have. The escorts possess all the power and the money. It’s a business Linc guards at all costs. Trying to maintain the secrecy is a constant challenge and one that’s tested when he enters into a relationship with Serena. She tempts him unlike any woman, even though he’s surrounded by beauty on a daily basis. The more time they spend together the harder it is for him to keep his secrets. Will Serena stand by his side or will she abandon him?

Sparks and passion fly, taking these two on a journey neither could have expected.

*** Excerpt ***


What did I have that could get me the job?

My green eyes, and favorite feature since they were like Gram's, might be appealing. Coppery, pin-straight hair that came down to my hips could be a plus. Men liked long hair, right?

At five foot eleven, the six-inch red stilettos made my legs look amazing. But the extra height made me an Amazon, and ranked as my least favorite feature. Normally, I wouldn't choose shoes this high, but I figured women in this profession wore them. At least the erotic books I read claimed so.

If you placed me next to Mylaynee, her exotic beauty with cocoa cream complexion and curvaceous figure would win a man's attention every time, hands down. Last week at the fundraiser, the hunk that accompanied her with blond, spiked-hair in an Armani suit would be just the type to seek her out. No way I'd end up with a gorgeous man like him. With my luck, I'd get stuck with eighty, paunchy, and bald.

The elevator doors slid open to reveal a mirrored interior. Once again all my physical imperfections were on display, combined with gigantic insecurities, and played on my already twisted mind. Before I could move, a panic attack hit me. Not now.

by
Jay Crownover





*** Synopsis ***

There's a difference between a bad boy and a boy who is bad... Welcome to the Point.

In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has be fearless to control the streets and the ruthless people who run them. Race Hartman is just bold enough, just smart enough, and just lost enough to wear the crown. Places like The Point will always have bad things and bad people, but the man in control of all that badness can minimize the devastation. Race has a plan, but can he prevent total annihilation without destroying himself?

Brysen Carter has always seen the real Race — a guy too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous. Basking in his golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she'll eventually get burned. She has enough problems without the risky danger and mayhem that comes with a guy like Race. Too bad Brysen faces a threat close to home that might be more dangerous than anything The Point has ever produced... And the only person interested in keeping her safe is the one man she can’t allow herself to have.

Sometimes being bold is the only way to stay alive. But can she let Race save her life... if it means losing herself to him?

*** Excerpt ***


I wheeled the Mustang into the compound and watched to make sure the gates swung closed behind us. The security lights flickered on overhead, casting her in an ethereal, bluish glow. Everything about her was refined and pure looking. God, I wanted to mess her up. I wanted my hands in her hair, my marks on her skin, and my taste in her mouth. I wanted her to look as rough as she made me feel on the inside. No one had ever riled me up like that before. Maybe because I was so used to just getting without having to ask, and Brysen never offered that to me. I always had to ask her what the next move was going to be, and her answers often surprised me. She was not a sure bet, and I think the challenge of that made her even more desirable.

"The lengths we go to in order to keep our family safe, to do right by those we love, is often a weighty burden to bear." I got out of the car and went around to let her out of the passenger side. When I pulled her up, I pressed her back into the side of the car with the full length of my body and bent down so that my mouth hovered enticingly over the plump ridge of hers.

"I would do anything for Dovie, anything. I have done things for her that made me hate the man I had to be in order to do them, but it was in her best interest. I admire you being able to put your own life down and pick up a different one out of loyalty to your sister, but somewhere in there, you need to remember she's going to have to learn to take care of herself. She'll eventually have to admit that your parents are fucked and move on with her own life. Dovie found the one person in the world to love who has the ability to insulate her from anything the Point wants to throw at her. Your sister will eventually have to find her stability as well. She won't need you forever."

I saw something flare deep in those cerulean eyes, a spark of pain, maybe of realization that I was right, but then it was gone and she was pressing up on her tiptoes and sealing her mouth over mine. I let my hands glide down her sides and fall under her backside. She had the nicest butt on any girl I had ever seen, the nicest body really. There was no end to all her curves and dips, and anywhere my hands decided to land, they were filled with firm and sexy flesh. The brief glimpse I had had of her out of her towel the last time we were this close together had been enough to burn out the image of any other female I might’ve seen naked in the last few years. All I could see was Brysen and her pretty, pale skin, her high breasts with perfectly pink nipples, and her most private of places that were just at elegant and alluring as the rest of her. She was a blond bombshell and I could feel my body urging me to stop playing around and finally seal the deal with her.

*** Synopsis ***


New York Times bestselling author Claudia Connor follows up her heartfelt debut, Worth the Fall, with a novel about Matt's brother, Stephen — and when a McKinney brother falls in love, powerful emotion and overwhelming desire are never far behind.

Two hearts locked away... Hannah Walker spends her days coaching children through injury and trauma, one therapeutic horseback ride at a time. She knows all too well how violence can change a child and leave scars that never heal. It's easy for her to relate to the kids; what isn't easy is the thought of facing her own harrowing past.

Millionaire playboy Stephen McKinney could use a little coaching himself. Five years ago he encountered his most horrible nightmare — and the nightmare won. No matter what he achieves, nothing can make up for that awful night... or so he believes.

Both desperate for a second chance... Stephen is used to getting what he wants. And he wants Hannah. So when she turns him down, he's intrigued. What he doesn't know is that her secrets will lead him to a place he never wanted to go again... to a side of himself he's tried to forget... a side that would scare Hannah away from ever loving him. Now his only chance to win her trust is to bare his soul, risking everything he tried so hard to protect.
