A second chance at first love

Years before, Wade Rycroft fell in love with Geneva Harris, the smartest girl in his class. The rodeo star and the shy academic made for an odd pair but their chemistry was undeniable. They made plans to get married after high school but when Genny left him standing in the rain, he joined the Army and vowed to leave that life behind. Genny married the town’s golden boy, and Wade knew that he couldn’t go home again.

Could become the promise of a lifetime

Fifteen years later, Wade returns to his Texas hometown for his brother’s wedding and walks into a storm of scandal. Genny’s marriage has dissolved and the town has turned against her. But when someone tries to kill his old love, Wade can’t refuse to help her. In his years after the Army, he’s found his place in the world. His job at McKay-Taggart keeps him happy and busy but something is missing. When he takes the job watching over Genny, he realizes what it is.

As danger presses in, Wade must decide if he can forgive past sins or let the woman of his dreams walk into a nightmare….

Re-released in a second edition with new content.

 

The town of Bliss, Colorado, offered Hope McLean a second chance at life, a gift she cherishes every day. Her past was dominated by dark secrets and regret, most of which centered on a man named Christian Grady. All of that was behind her now, years of horror distilled down into the occasional nightmare or a random feeling of being watched. Surrounded by new friends, she tried hard to leave the past where it belonged—in the rearview mirror.

 

Raised together, James Glen and Noah Bennett were the best of friends. They dreamed of growing up in Bliss, finding love, and settling down to share their lives on the Circle G ranch. James would manage the day-to-day operations of the ranch while Noah served the town as the resident veterinarian. Everything was perfectly planned out, until a woman came between them and their future shattered. Noah left Bliss for New York City and James was left to struggle to keep the Circle G alive on his own.

 

Noah returns to Bliss on a mission to rebuild his life. When he sees Hope, he knows his return home was meant to be. Hope’s kindness shines like a beacon calling him to her. Unfortunately, he isn’t the only man interested in Hope. James is also interested in the beautiful girl with a mysterious past. He can’t be forced to choose between the woman of his dreams and his best friend again.

 

As romance begins to bloom, a dark specter from Hope’s past returns to claim her. To save Hope, and themselves, James and Noah will have to rebuild the relationship they lost and fight for their future with Hope together.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake comes a new story in her Masters and Mercenaries series…  

A woman’s work 

Amy Slaten has devoted her life to Slaten Industries. After ousting her corrupt father and taking over the CEO role, she thought she could relax and enjoy taking her company to the next level. But an old business rivalry rears its ugly head. The only thing that can possibly take her mind off business is the training class at Sanctum…and her training partner, the gorgeous and funny Flynn Adler. If she can just manage to best her mysterious business rival, life might be perfect. 

A man’s commitment 

Flynn Adler never thought he would fall for the enemy. Business is war, or so his father always claimed. He was raised to be ruthless when it came to the family company, and now he’s raising his brother to one day work with him. The first order of business? The hostile takeover of Slaten Industries. It’s a stressful job so when his brother offers him a spot in Sanctum’s training program, Flynn jumps at the chance. 

A lifetime of devotion…. 

When Flynn realizes the woman he’s falling for is none other than the CEO of the firm he needs to take down, he has to make a choice. Does he take care of the woman he’s falling in love with or the business he’s worked a lifetime to build? And when Amy finally understands the man she’s come to trust is none other than the enemy, will she walk away from him or fight for the love she’s come to depend on? 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world.  And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Welcome to the Texas Hotzone! A box set of three superbly sexy full-length romances featuring a trio of daredevil heroes from acclaimed author Lisa Renee Jones!

TEXAS HOTZONE is the skydiving business propelling the citizens of Austin, Texas, into a whole new realm of adventure. At the helm of the operation are three wild jumpmasters, Bobby, Ray and Caleb—ex Army Rangers called the "Crazy Aces" for their willingness to take on the most daring of missions. Unstoppable. Untamable. But that's all about to change. These men are going to learn that no man, not even one of the Crazy Aces, is without a weakness—you just have to know her name.

In Jump Start Jennifer Jones appears to have it all. But secretly, she carries a torch for the former love of her life Bobby Evans. When Bobby shows up for a friend's wedding, she hopes to avoid him; he hurt her once he'll do it again, but Bobby's changed and he not only knows what he wants, he knows what she likes, too!

In High Octane Ray Walker and Sabrina Cameron are breaking all the rules. Their hot, sensual fling thrills and excites them, and forces them to reach beyond their inhibitions, beyond fear. Soon, Sabrina, threatened by a blackmailer, feels her world spinning out of control, until Ray insists he'll protect her, even though it'll force him to be more daring than either of them ever imagined he could be…

In Breathless Descent, a forbidden kiss ten years ago is recreated when Caleb Martin meets the gorgeous, now grown-up daughter of the foster family that had cared for and raised him. He's willing to risk it all for Shay White, but once their steaming-hot affair is discovered, will they have to go their separate ways after all?

Get all three books in this series in a value-priced box set, and don't forget—there's no looking back or down!
