Relentless
Renegades #4
by Skye Jordan


Blurb:

Bad boy Troy Jacobs is all about taking risks. As a stunt double for Hollywood’s A-listers, there’s no fall he won’t attempt. With one exception—women. Troy fell hard once, and it nearly broke him. Since then, he’s vowed never to trust like that again and he’s got everything under control. Until the woman who shattered his heart years before shows up on his movie-set.

Country music star Giselle “Ellie” Diamond learned long ago that sometimes love isn’t enough. When love got in the way of her goals, she made the tough choice to let go of happily ever after and chased the glitz and glamour of the stage. It may not be all she expected, but now it’s all she has. And with a worldwide tour on the line, Ellie needs one last gig to rocket her toward stardom: a high-profile role in a blockbuster film.

Passion sparks, and old feelings return. But while Troy and Ellie grow closer their problems from the past simmer in the background. And this time around, there’s more tearing them apart than just one star-studded career.

Mistress Of Purity
by Faye Hall 

Release date 08/01/2015

Blurb: 

Prue had seen something the night her father was murdered, something that would forever change her life...
She had seen something that would continue to haunt her and follow her wherever she went.

When she had married the Earl of Malloy, Prue had hoped to be able to hide under his name and at his out of town estate.
What she had not thought was to become his son's MISTRESS OF PURITY.
Gareth had sworn never to return to his father's estate, not to the life he had once thought to have there.

He had hoped that the man he had grown in to was no longer hoping to find the love of a woman he knew could not possibly exist.
What Gareth had not wanted was to find his comfort in the arms of his father's young wife... a woman he knew was hiding far more than just one secret from him...

Profile of Retribution
 Profile Series book #3
by Alexa Grace

From USA Today bestselling author of Deadly Offerings, Alexa Grace, comes the third book in her Profile Series: Profile of Retribution, a spine-tingling story of guilt, vengeance and regret.


Blurb:

The Dream
Bradley and Tisha Lucas had a mini-mansion in the country, a thriving architectural business, and two handsome, intelligent and athletic teenage sons. They were living the dream, until the day their world imploded and they were thrust into a parent’s worst nightmare.

The Nightmare
Before they had a chance to grieve the untimely deaths of their seventeen-year-old twin boys, they learned the horrific truth. Like a headline ripped from the tabloids, their sons had systematically abducted, tortured, and murdered seven innocent young women.

The Retribution
For their parents, the nightmare didn’t stop after Evan and Devan Lucas snuffed out the lives of seven victims for fun. It was just beginning. At a support group, the families of the women murdered by the Lucas twins gather to tell their stories, share their anger and grief, as they move toward a new normal.
For one member of the group, an obsession for payback drove his days and nights. He pledged to make Bradley and Tisha Lucas pay for the crimes of their sons. It was a pledge he was determined to keep. He’d make them suffer, just as their sons’ victims had. Those who spawn monsters shall be judged, shall be condemned. Retribution would be his.

Racing Against the Clock
It wasn't that Sgt. Cameron Chase didn’t have a suspect, he had too many of them.
There were seven families who might want to harm the Lucas couple. But which of them wanted the ultimate in retribution — to see them dead?

Don’t miss this fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat crime fiction thriller. Profile of
Retribution will have your attention in its grips from page one until the end.

by Cassandra Stangle


Blurb:

There are many dangers in our world, some seen some unseen. You’ve felt them haven’t you? The eyes on your back as you make your way to your car late at night, but when you turn around there’s nothing there, or is there? In the shadows they are watching you, creatures of nothing but shadows and malice. They are the shadow. They are theSaloku. But don’t worry, they will only eat those that can see them, such as the creatures of magic and legend. (Fairies, elves, and dwarfs). You’ve probably seen a member of the western fairy clan. They look just like you and me for the most part, but they are extremely attractive and mysterious. That is the lure of the Fay.

Dark has spent the last four thousand years fighting those monsters of darkness, His clan has lost many during this war and his parents were among them. The only family he has left is his twin brother Krad. Now he is desperately trying to keep his quickly dwindling clan safe when a sudden vision changes his life forever. The woman in his vision makes his heart flutter. Who is she? He has to find out.

Thanks to his gift, Krad practically lived in his brothers’ shadow which was perfectly fine with him. He never truly wanted the attention their status gave them. His gift, of course, made things difficult. But when he met Victoria he wanted to truly know her. What he found was that she also had a special gift, and found that he wasn’t the only one interested in her. Echo covets her “unique” talents. Now they have to keep her safe from the Saloku and that pointed-eared bastard or Echo may actually accomplish his goals.

But the chemistry between them won’t be denied, and one kind of complication turns into another as she awakens a possessive need inside him he’s unable to deny.

Racing royalty PJ Colman knew from the first moment she laid eyes on Asa that he would rock her world. But what started out as a fun romp in the bedroom soon becomes an all consuming passion. Soon he’s introducing her to a whole new world in the bedroom, pushing her far beyond anything she’s ever experienced.And he’s her sounding board, her refuge and her biggest annoyance as she has to learn how to manage an alpha male with protective instincts like the one she’s fallen for.

Hopeless romantic Rosalie Millan is fresh out of college and ready to start a new life in the baseball-obsessed town of Kingston, Rhode Island. Her sister has found her forever love with the Kingston Crushers’ second baseman, and now Rosalie wants the same thing. But the man she has her sights set on is far from boyfriend material. He’s wild, sex-crazed, and hell-bent on staying single. Still, Rosalie can’t seem to give up on the bad boy.

Up-and-coming baseball pitcher Holt Clemson is on fire, both on and off the field. His career has taken him to the top, and with that success comes women, and lots of them. After spending years watching his father cheat and lie to his mother, he’s become jaded when it comes to relationships. He can have any girl he chooses, but the last one he thought he’d ever want is the only one making her way into his heart.

Tough Love 
Ultimate Series
by Lori Foster
Release date 08/25/2015

Blurb:

She’s playing hard to get…

Vanity Baker loves a good clean match, but she’s not above playing a little dirty. She’s wanted Stack “The Wolf” Hannigan from day one. Seems like the best way to corral the famously commitment-phobic fighter is to insist on keeping it casual. And her plan works—deliciously well—until Stack’s past steps out of the shadows.

Stack learned early to stay free of attachments. But with sexy, forthright Vanity, he’s the one always left wanting more. Then his troublemaking family comes back into the picture, threatening everything Stack cares about—Vanity included. Suddenly he realizes they’re much more than friends with benefits. He’s ready to go to the mat for her…but will it be in time to protect the woman who’s tamed him for good?

Zack Hunter never thought his job as an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent would lead him back to his small hometown, and he never thought he'd set eyes on Sky again. Leaving her behind had been the stupidest thing he'd ever done, but this time he isn't going to let her go. And as soon as Zack lays eyes on Sky, he makes it clear that he intends to make her his all over again.
When Sky becomes entangled in the case he's investigating, Zack can't help but take the threat personally. As the danger mounts, their passion burns even hotter.
