A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there's not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.

Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can't afford to turn down Stella's offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan--from foreplay to more-than-missionary position...
Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but crave all of the other things he's making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic...

Was the interview a lie? Was Kallie telling the truth? Would she take me back? Will I ever feel her skin beneath my fingertips again? Will I ever get the chance to tell her how I feel?
Only one thing is for certain. Someone is lying.

Now that her best friend has found happiness, Annika Bashir is bursting in anticipation for her own happily ever after. Just one problem: Spoiled and utterly vain Annika is engaged to a boorish, “family-approved” lawyer who wouldn’t know how to please a woman with an illustrated set of detailed instructions in hand. He’s perfect on paper, but a real letdown in reality. But as long as everyone else in Annika’s life gives him the thumbs-up, she’ll settle. Mad love is just a Hollywood fiction, after all, and she hasn’t allowed herself to dream that it could as wonderful as it seems to be for others. Marriage, at its essence, is an exercise in practicality.
Enter Dr. Kiran Patil, a handsome, stoic surgeon at a charity hospital who rocks Annika’s world—and entire worldview—when she breaks her ankle during a short trip to India. But this doctor doesn’t do shallow, and scorns vapid women with an affinity for Gucci handbags and extravagant shopping trips.
Will he scorn Annika also? Or will he become seduced by the woman she has become during her trip to exotic and mystical India, a place that seems to have the power to peel back her shallow layers and reveal intense passions buried deep down inside?

Secrets are diseases, and my life is full of them.
But she isn't innocent either. And encounters in my hometown after a brawl in a bar make me wonder if my money is all she's after. Will she forgive the things I said? Can she look past the rumors and see the man I am now? Or are my assumptions of her true?

Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.
Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?
