Logan King can't stand back and watch his best friend's twin sister continue to spiral out of control. With random hookups, drunken nights, and reckless decisions, she is on the path to self-destruction. He sets out to slow her down and prove that she isn't happy with her one-night stands.

*** Excerpt ***

"He hurt you?" I asked as I took her hands to look at them.

"Not really," she said in a weak voice.

"You okay?" I asked, leaning down to try to glance at her face. The meek voice and timid body language were unlike her.

"Fine. What are you doing here? Have you been here all night?"

"Long enough," I explained.

The doors burst open and Kevin was pushing Cody and his friends out the door. They complained and resisted until they were stumbling down the steps. After some cursing, they disappeared into the darkness of the parking lot. I waited until their cars pulled out before unclenching my jaw.

"What the hell were you thinking coming out here alone with him?" I snapped.

"I didn't want to come out here with him. He followed me!"

"You shouldn't have been flirting with him the first place! Fuck, what did you think would happen being alone with him?"

"Were you watching me? If you were so concerned, why didn't you to come to me earlier?” she asked, lowering her voice when she realized we started shouting.

I shook my head at her, unwilling to admit that once I saw her and Ruby at the back table with the guys, I didn't take my eyes of them. I wanted to rip his hands off of her body, but I didn't have a reason yet. I couldn't figure out why Scarlett wasn't telling him off herself since she didn't look interested.

"The rules," I reminded her.

"Screw the rules, Logan. I didn't go home with him and I wasn't going to. You know why? Because all I could think about was that he probably didn't kiss better than you!"

I bit my lip through her tempter tantrum to keep from laughing. Scarlett stood there, fuming and looking up at me with fire in her eyes. She was angry, breathing in quick bursts, and clenching her fists at her sides. Her cheeks were pink and her lips parted to continue her rant.

She let out a harsh laugh before continuing. “For a second, I actually thought of trying kissing him in hopes he could top yours. So I hope you're happy because not only have you forced me into chastity, but also you have destroyed future kisses. Which the rules say nothing about. You-"

I covered her mouth with mine, killing the words about to spill out. Scarlett inhaled quickly in surprise before returning the kiss. Her mouth opened and I dipped my tongue in, tasting the warm sweetness. I could feel her muscles relax as I gripped her arms and pulled her closer. Her fingers unclenched and linked around the belt loops of my jeans.

I kissed her hard, as if to leave an imprint on her like she claims I already did. When her tongue entered my mouth, I sucked on it, slowly pulling away as I looked down at her closed eyes. Scarlett's eyelids slowly fluttered open as she exhaled on my lips.

"That what you were trying to top?" I whispered. She nodded, eyes still glossy and unfocused.

Love Survives
Love's Suicide #2
Jennifer Foor

Release Date: March 7th, 2015

*** Synopsis ***

Imagine being in love with the same girl since you were ten years old, only to have her fall for your twin instead. This story is rocky.

It will rip you apart and possibly put you back together again.

I know this because it's my story.

The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we'd find each other again. I won't sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into her life.

Sometimes love isn't enough.

Sometimes it takes a little fate.

*** Excerpt ***

I can't help but wonder about my own broken heart. Why am I holding onto some hope that I'll have her in my arms again? It makes no sense, and that's the reason I won't share my feelings about it with anyone. They'll just laugh at me for loving her so much. When I close my eyes we're together. She's running through a field of tall grasses, while beams of sun are shining down, highlighting her brown wavy hair. The smile on her face makes me beam, and I stand there, arms open, waiting to catch her when she comes into my reach. I want to lay there in that field with her until the sun sets, and even after. It's no longer about making love. In that moment I know she's mine, and nothing can tear us apart again.

I just wish I could talk to her. I want to tell her that I miss her. I need to know she's okay.

I need to know she's still alive.

Love's Suicide #1

*** Synopsis ***

My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too naïve to know what that even meant. We didn't understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I'd made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.

Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I'd ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I'd ever known.

That’s where my story should have ended.

Two years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.

The only question was...

Would I give it to him

I'm Katy Michaels and this is my story.

"I have read well over 125 books since I received my kindle last February (2013). That being said, this first book in this series is the BEST book I have read. I am so sorry to say but it has to be said that E L James, Sylvia Day, etc. have nothing on Julie Richman."

"Did I mention how insanely HOT these two are together? Scorching, fanning myself, hot!!"

"I think this is one of the best series out there, Hookers! It is an amazing story, it is full of emotion, and it is real. The relationships are complex and the characters are unpredictable. Julie will wring you out emotionally and leave you craving Moore!"

"I just finished this book and my heart is pounding! I too am a Facebook friend request away from a past love. This book has you hooked from the first pages! I cried, I laughed and I cheered! Such real characters and a love story that every girl dreams of having."

"OMG need "moore" Schooner now!!!!!! ... I cannot get enough of this story. Every once in a while a book or series comes out that has me salivating at every word and this fits that bill to the tee!"

"This is just writing at its best. It's so witty and the characters are so well written. I could not put this book down!"


I lost the love of my life when she disappeared without even a goodbye.

It was the 80's - there was no internet, no Google, no cell phones.

If you wanted to disappear, you could.

And she did.

She crushed my soul.

A friend just told me he saw her on Facebook.

And now I'm a keystroke away from asking her the question that's haunted me for two decades.

"Why did you leave me?"

Two decades after she broke his heart, sexy entrepreneur Schooner Moore uncovers the truth and betrayal his life has been built on when he Facebook friend requests college love, Mia Silver. Determined to win Mia's love once again, Schooner embarks on a life-altering journey that could cost him everything.


Continuing the fight for their happily ever after that began in Searching for Moore, Schooner Moore and Mia Silver struggle to overcome the ghosts and baggage they accumulated during their time apart.

Exploring the missing 24 years when they were separated, Moore to Lose follows Mia's journey from heartbroken teen to kickass businesswoman to her emotional reunion with Schooner and the exploration of the love that was ripped from them.

But is their love really strong enough to overcome the damage of those missing 24 years or will they continue to be ripped apart by pasts that can't be changed?


Is the love they always dreamed of enough?

Continuing the emotional journey of love and betrayal that began on a college campus in Searching for Moore and turned their worlds upside down in Moore to Lose, handsome, California entrepreneur Schooner Moore and sharp and sassy, New York advertising agency owner Mia Silver continue to be confronted with the harsh reality of the remnants from the lives they lived apart for 24 years.

Now, Schooner Moore and Mia Silver face the ultimate challenge - were they really meant to be together or will their pasts continue to tear them apart?

On the heels of the birth of their newborn son, Nathaniel, Schooner and Mia must decide if their love and loyalty to one another is strong enough to learn to grow together as a couple or if the life they always dreamed of sharing was better left as a teenage fantasy.

PRG Investigations #1
Ashley Stoyanoff

Release Date: February 28th 2015

Genres: New Adult, Romance

*** Synopsis ***

One year ago, I became a missing person. I left everything behind — family, friends, school. It seemed like a good idea at the time. My only option, really, until I realized running from a police officer isn't as easy as I thought it would be.

It's been exactly three-hundred and sixty-five days since I left home, but I'm finally ready to take the step I should have taken a year ago. I'm done hiding. I'm done running. I'm going to take my life back.

It was supposed to be easy. A meeting with Jason Pierce, a private investigator, was set up for me. All I had to do was go to him, let him do his thing, and then I could go home, or so I thought.

That is, until I met Jason and things got... complicated.

*** Excerpt ***

Oh my God.

Oh my God.

I didn't. I couldn't have. No. No, no, no.

Holy crap, I did. I just shot Jason Pierce in the chest with a Taser.

My eyes bug wide open as I watch Jason fall. "Oh my God," I say out loud, dropping the incriminating device. It tumbles to the carpet, the thump sounding louder in my ears than possible.

Wes is laughing. Not the small, amused chuckle from before, but a loud howl of a laugh. He laughs as though it's the funniest thing he's ever seen.

My cheeks flame, my heart races. Clicking fills the air, each one sending another shock into Jason. A small grunt of pain escapes from his lips, but he doesn't move, frozen in place as the shocks keep coming.

I can't look away. I want to. I want to get up and go to him, but I can't. All I can do is watch.

Thirty seconds. Thirty excruciatingly long seconds tick by before the awful clicking stops.

Jason lets out a loud breath, and slowly pushes himself back to his feet. He glowers, first at me, and then at Wes.

Wes doesn't seem bothered by the furious glint in Jason's eyes. He only laughs some more and says, "Told you to wait in the car."

"You didn't tell me you were giving her a fuckin' Taser," Jason grumbles.

Glancing down at his chest, his jaw clenches as he looks at the barbs and wires. He takes hold of one of the barbs, wincing as he yanks it out, and then does the same with the other.

I want to say something, anything, but I'm mute. Stunned silent. Good God, I can't believe I did that. Why the hell did Wes give me a Taser?

Minutes pass. Long drawn out minutes of Wes chuckling and Jason scowling down at the barbs and wires clutched in his hand.

Finally letting the wires fall to the floor, Jason asks, "You two about done in here?"

He doesn't look up as he speaks. I think I should probably be thankful for that. His tone carries an undercurrent of hostility and the sound is more than enough to freak me out, without seeing it mirrored in his eyes, but still, I wish he would look at me.

"I'm sorry," I blurt, ignoring his question. "I'm really, really so sorry. You startled me and I..."

Jason's gaze snaps to mine, freezing me mid-sentence. He lowers his chin, glaring at me. His hands open and close by his thighs. "It's fine. Forget it ever happened."

It's not fine, though. I can see the annoyance lurking in his eyes. I can feel his tension radiating through the room.

"Don't think I'll forget that," Wes says, grinning wide. "Shit, I wish I took a picture. Fuckin' priceless."
