"A dark and emotional tale that will make your spine tingle as well as your heart."—SARINA BOWEN, USA Today bestselling author of Bittersweet

This gentle giant's scarred hands may be the warmest touch she'll ever know.
...if only life were a fairy tale where Beauty got to keep her Beast

A darkly possessive relationship has left Uma alone and on the run. Beneath her drab clothing, she hides a terrible secret—proof of her abuse, tattooed on her skin in a lurid reminder of everything she's survived. Caught between a brutal past and an uncertain future, Uma's relucant to bare herself to anyone, much less a rough ex-con whose rage drives him in ways she'll never understand.

Ivan thought the world was through giving him second chances. Until Uma came into his life. Until she changed everything. Until he realized he would do anything, fight anyone, and tear the world apart if it only meant saving her.

This dark romance is an emotional tale of survival and contains strong themes of past domestic/sexual abuse. Please see reviews for details.

"Anders has created wonderful variations on the beauty and the beast theme and the damsel-in-distress trope, a greatly tormented hero, and a powerful mix of menace and romance." —Booklist

He thought he was beyond saving. A cop turned undercover gang member turned...whatever he is now.
He thought no one would ever see him as anything but a beast.
Until he found her. Until she changed everything.

Undercover cop Clay Navarro left the Sultans biker gang a changed man. Its ringleaders may be awaiting trial, but he wears the memory of his time in that hell tattooed across his skin. He figures he doesn't have space in his messed-up life for anything gentle?not now, maybe not ever.

Besides, what woman could possibly want the man he's become?

Dr. Georgette Hadley is drawn to the damaged stranger's pain, intimidated but intrigued by the warmth that lies beneath Clay's frightening exterior. She thrills at the way he gentles at her touch...and under his rough hands, she burns with a passion she never thought she'd know.

But when the Sultans return looking for revenge, Georgette finds herself drawn into the dirty underbelly of a life forged in violence...that not even her touch may be able to heal.

"Anders excels at creating sympathetic characters who will win the reader's heart."—Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

The rules are simple: Never speak to outsiders.Never yearn for something more.
And never, ever seek the pleasure of a stolen kiss...or a whispered promise that with him, she can finally be free.

Abby Merkley has been a member of the Church of the Apocalyptic Faith since she was a child, and there's no way out...until her darkly handsome, brooding neighbor defies the rules and takes her into the safety of his arms.

He should frighten her, but everything inside Abby thrills at Luc Stanek's rough manners and shockingly gentle touch. He excites her, ignites her, leaves her shaken and wanting more. But evil men follow in her footsteps, and it may take more than one fierce beauty to defend her loving beast.

New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff delivers the final installment in her thrillingly romantic Art of Pleasure series.

Seven days, seven nights…

One week of passion.

One week of submission.

One week where anything—and everything—goes.

Destiny Bridges has always been driven by the images in her head. For most of her life, her art has been everything to her, with people and life and even sex coming in very distant seconds.

Until journalist Heath Lewis comes to town to interview her for one of the top art magazines in the world. Suddenly he’s asking all kinds of questions she doesn’t know how to answer…and pushing her in ways she never imagined possible.

Ways that have her craving him and the pleasure he so effortlessly gives her.

With Heath, Destiny lets her body take control for the first time in her life. For one week, she gives herself over to all the wicked, wonderful things Heath demands of her, and in doing so learns more about herself—and her art—than she ever dreamed possible.

But when the week is over and Heath is still pushing for more—pushing for everything—she must decide if the changes he’s brought to her life, and her art, are changes she can live with for the rest of her life.

Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling author Ryan Michele brings a forbidden romance with a man so alpha, he invented the word.



Age is but a number...

With no other choice, Tanner must seek out the one person she's never met, but gave her half of his DNA. In going to him, her world opens wide to a life she'd never experienced, the Ravage MC.

Whether she realizes it or not, she just gained an extended family.

Danger lurks in a tall, tatted, older, scary as hell man that could crush her with one hand. Except, looks can be deceiving. Wolf in sheep's clothing they say.

Rhys knows what he wants the instant his eyes land on Tanner and will stop at nothing to have her.

Even if that means going up against his best friend and brother, her father. Nothing and no one holds him back. Except maybe himself.

When push comes to shove, Rhys always shoves back harder, faster, and fiercely.

Survival of the fittest doesn't apply to Rhys. He will survive with his woman at his side, or die trying.
