Giving in to her attraction for a human could change everything


Humans are beneath her kind.


But Fae princess Theodora Rainer must escape the Fae realm, or marry a man she despises.


California farmer Alex Rosales stays out of the trouble his older brother gets into—someone has to hang onto the farm. But when Alex finds Theodora hiding on his property, caution is nowhere in sight. She has the beauty of an angel, with deep secrets he can’t penetrate.


Alex breaks his own rules and invites Theodora to stay. But the proximity puts them both in danger, because Alex glimpses her heart—only to discover something powerful seeks to tear them apart.

After my last cheating ex, I’ve sworn off men. Until Lewis comes along and steals my breath and my good sense.

 

I’ve never been one to lust after guys. My mother’s revolving door of relationships doused any propensity I might have had long ago. But Lewis is six and a half feet of rugged mountain man, and he’s…eye-catching. Sexy. Silently brooding in all the best ways.

 

The more time I spend with him, the more naughty thoughts I have of us together, and he’s not helping put a stop to it. It’s infuriating.

 

I’m fantasizing and lusting, and I can’t remember why I wanted to stay away to begin with.

 

But Lewis carries his own relationship baggage. Baggage that could break me in ways no ex-boyfriend ever did.

 

Despite the safe, logical reasons I shouldn’t get involved, Lewis might be the one man I can’t resist.

 

This hot, romantic comedy will have you intermittently fanning yourself and laughing at Lewis’s sexy approach at convincing Gen they’re right for each other. Grab Mountain Man now!

 

EXCERPT:

 

He tugs down his shorts—and goes completely naked.

 

“Um?”

 

He glances up. “You can stay in your panties. I’m getting clean… What? I trust you not to grope me.” He grins.

 

“Hot, funny, infuriating and omg where can I get one please…” ~ Reviewer

I’m stuck in the friend zone with the hottest guy I’ve ever known. Oh, and he’s my best friend.


Zach pushes me away the moment sparks fly, and sparks have been flying since the day we met. Either I have a serious case of body odor I’m not aware of, or he’s intentionally keeping me at a distance. 


The way I see it, I have two options. I can leave town and make a fresh start, or I can show Zach how right we are for each other.


Only one of those options has the potential to ruin the best friendship I’ve ever had. But I’m considering risking it all for love.


A RITA-nominated, sexy, friends-to-lovers romance that will pull your emotional heartstrings. Grab it now!


EXCERPT: 


“Nessa.” His voice is a strangled growl. 


“This shouldn’t be a big deal. You said you’re not attracted to me,” I remind him.


“I didn’t say that.”


“You said there’s nothing to worry about, and that I should make myself comfortable.”

“I didn’t think you were gonna skinny-dip.”

Elena must save the very beings who would kill her if given the chance…


Though tall and insanely beautiful, Fae are not the angels they appear.


Suddenly susceptible to a deadly disease, the Fae believe Elena--a mere half-breed--can cure them. And they'll harm the last of Elena's loved ones unless she helps them by using the magical ability she inherited from a mother she never knew.

 

Her only shot at creating a cure? Enlisting the help of her brooding, though brilliant, chemist neighbor Derek, who rivals the Fae in masculine beauty.


Derek has seen the Viking-looking man following his neighbor's every move. When Elena comes to him for help, he hesitates. Derek has secrets of his own, and this business Elena’s involved in could ruin everything. 


But when Elena and Derek get together, more than chemicals spark fire. They soon discover how complicated physical attraction can get when they find themselves on the other side of the portal, enemies by birthright, and fighting for survival.

 

Fates Divided by Jules Barnard is a captivating twist on forbidden love with unique world building, seductive romance, and a deadly noble race for dominance that will make your heart pound. Grab it today!

He must make a choice. Betray his people, or lose her forever…


Humans are inferior. A scourge on the Fae and on the magic passed down to them by angels millennia ago. Keen won’t add to the half-breed problem that threatens his people’s existence by giving in to his attraction to Reese.


Reese can’t stand Keen. He criticizes her clothing, won’t answer a straight question, and is too handsome for her peace of mind. Her entire life, Reese has been pegged for a shallow, ditzy blond. She won’t take the stereotype from the arrogant Fae too. 


But when her life is threatened, Reese sees a side of Keen that is protective and dangerously seductive. And she wonders what else lies beneath the soldier’s hard exterior.


The Fae realm’s battle for power forces Keen to make a choice: betray his people, or lose Reese forever.

Perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings, the New York Times bestselling Inheritance Cycle about the dragon rider Eragon has sold over 35 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation.


Darkness falls…despair abounds…evil reigns…

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire.

Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn’t know whom he can trust.
