She wants one night, he wants forever.

Waking up naked next to a good looking man is not a bad way to start the day. The problem? This hottie is Hank, her best friend's older brother, who she's known her entire life. Stopping after one night is the right thing to do. Being with him clearly breaks the best friend code. From his career as a Naval officer to his Boy Scout reputation, everything about him screams monogamy and commitment. . .two things Paisley has had enough of.

When Hank presents a "no strings attached" offer, it's too good to be true. But, poor choices force her to confront old fears of love and loss, and Paisley has to decide if Hank is worth the risk. The alternative is never experiencing the real deal. Or far worse, settling for less.

Flames of Love – USAT Bestselling Author Erin Wright

Jaxson’s not interested in love, or the perils that come with it. His priority is caring for his two small boys, and being fire chief of Sawyer. Everything changes the day he catches sight of Sugar, the pretty girl with the fragile smile. He wants her all to himself, and preferably in his bed – a no-strings arrangement that won’t break what’s left of his heart. But love’s as unpredictable as fire…

Forever a Maverick – USAT Bestselling Author Genevieve Turner

When farmer Ash Warner offers a marriage of convenience to single mom Juniper Gries, she can’t tell who’s crazier—him for proposing or her for accepting. He’ll get her water rights, she’ll get security for her young son, and neither of them will get intimate. But when their crazy attraction flares out of control, this plot hatched in desperation might just become the marriage of their dreams.

Stuck under the domineering thumb of a tyrant father, Meredith is suffocating.  Her only ticket out is a marriage of convenience. Jace and Meredith strike a bargain, they’ll play house for as long as they need to get what they want. The plan is foolproof...but falling in love could change everything.

Last Surrender – USAT Bestselling Author Suzie O’Connell

Heather has a bad habit of walking away from good men. According to her family, Jeremiah isn’t in that category.

Playing at Love – USAT Bestselling Author Christine Kingsley

Kate Reynolds has two loves in her life—her daughter and her coffee shop. She's learned the hard way you can't rely on a man and she's determined to do it all on her own. But when rugged country crooner Mac Winters helps out with the grand opening, the last thing she expects is long-denied feelings to surface. The more time they spend together, the harder it is to fight it. They both know they can't give the other what they need. But the longer they keep playing at love, the more they wonder…could this be the real deal?

Prairie Fire- USAT Bestselling Author Tessa Layne

Firefighter Parker Hansen didn’t act on his feelings for Cassidy Grace until it was too late – the night before she left for basic training. But now that she’s back, and the newest member of Prairie’s fire brigade, he wants to pick up where they left off. But Cassidy’s fighting more than just fires, her tour in Afghanistan haunts her. It all comes to a head in the battlefield of a wildfire when the tables are turned and rescuer becomes the rescued. Will Parker’s love be enough to help Cassidy snuff the fires raging within?

She’s not meant to be a bride…

At least not to the man her parents picked out. Ellie Greene wants a quiet life with Grams on the Wyoming farm, and quiet could happen if someone would stop sabotaging them. Each week something more dangerous happens and Ellie doesn't know how much more she can stand. Forced to seek help, Ellie would prefer anyone else other than the tall, dark, sexy-as-sin cowboy with the knight-in-shining-armor complex she gets stuck with. While the chemistry between them flares brighter than fireworks, Ellie knows they want different things from life. She wants an easy-going farm boy, and nothing about Shane is easy. Besides, soon he’ll be moving on. 


He’s not meant to be a civilian…

Shane Hannigan doesn’t know how to be anything but a Marine sniper.  Honestly, he’s not sure he’s good at anything else. Since the IED explosion took his leg—and most likely his career—he’s not sure where he belongs. As a man whose job is to protect others, coming across the blonde-curly haired beauty with a flat tire is a nice distraction, that is until he finds out the flat was no accident. Someone is out to get Ellie, and even though she’s the most stubbornly competent woman he’s ever met—and damn if that’s not a sexy trait—he knows she's in danger and he’s going to help her, despite her obstinate objections. 

Can they work together to find who is determined to destroy Ellie before it’s too late?  Or will Ellie lose her heart and her farm?
