Rejected by a geek who wanted to “trade up,” Mirjam Linna would rather immerse herself in work than be the girlfriend-of-the-moment. Stranded in a Vegas hotel, she makes a wish—a night of hot sex with the man of her dreams. It's granted. She agrees to dinner, but afterward, she’ll say thanks, but no thanks, and see what’s on the SyFy channel. But when they meet, they're surprised to find they had a shared connection in their past. Sparks fly as these two learn to be in the moment, be themselves and find love.
Fans of Star Trek, Star Wars, Monty Python, Firefly and Marvin the Martian will enjoy this romantic comedy.

One blind date. One case of mistaken identity. One Navy SEAL faced with his high school crush. What could go wrong?
And her hookup? A gorgeous lawyer.
It should've been simple. A hot, sweaty afternoon quickie and never the two should boink, er, meet again.
But it wasn't simple when she learns the next day that her hookup is not only her patient but also her old high school nemesis Luke Haas, or Haashole as she called him. All grown-up and a Navy SEAL and…and…brawny and maddening and omg-so-hot.
EARNING IT is a steamy second chance, enemies-to-lovers standalone romantic comedy from RITA Winning and USA Today bestselling author Angela Quarles with a happy-ever-after and no cheating or cliffhangers.

I’ve always been a one-night stand kind of girl, and sometimes I wouldn’t even stick around for a full night. Brock was supposed to be a one-night stand—that’s how it started out, at least. Only, what was supposed to be a fun one-time-only hookup with a hot local guy ended up with me discovering Brock’s potency six different ways by breakfast.
That was all it took. One night with Brock, and I was hooked. But hooked doesn’t mean ready for a relationship.
That’s what he wants. And deep down, I’m starting to fear that’s what I want too.
I’m just not sure I’m ready for it.
I mean, he’s the literal epitome of tall, dark, and handsome, plus he’s a pilot…with a six-pack and perfect hair and a smile to melt me from the inside out. How’s a girl supposed to resist that? I couldn’t. I can’t. I’ve tried, but I keep going back for more.
I’ve got it bad, real BADD.
Then John Carter Quinn crashes into my life. He's an older, gorgeous billionaire in a thousand dollar suit. He keeps coming to see me, night after night. I'm not sure what he wants -- but one night at my club he takes down a bad guy, and I find out what type of business he's actually in. Hint: he doesn't sit at a desk, he employs a bunch of ex-military operatives, and it's lethal to be on his bad side.
Like me, John has his share of secrets. Dark secrets, dark pain. One of his secrets involves my past. These secrets will bring us together...and then tear us apart.

500-mile road trip! Mission? Get over the guy you kinda-sorta hooked up with. Problem? He's your new road-trip companion.
Bribed by her bestie to go on a stupid soul-searching road trip to get over The Turd, Jane is sooo not into spending four days visiting tacky Florida stops and, ugh, journaling it. A librarian hiding behind the stereotype, she'd rather veg and read, thank you very much.
What could make it worse? Oh yeah. A hunky, charming playboy, begging for a ride. You might wonder why that would be worse, because, c'mon--hot guy? Except this hot guy is The Turd, the player this whole trip is meant to help her forget.
RISKING IT is a steamy, standalone romantic comedy from RITA Winning and USA Today bestselling author Angela Quarles with a happy-ever-after and no cheating or cliffhangers, with some bonus stops at wacky Florida tourist traps.
