Christina Stilton has waited all her life to become a wolf’s bride. Becoming mate to a stranger in a faraway pack is the only chance she has to escape her Appalachian life of poverty and abuse. She wants safety, but trusts The Fates to steer her toward love, too.

Love is the last thing on Anton Denis’s mind. He doesn’t want to saddle some hopeful woman to him. A brutal fight left him scarred and half blind. He’s a mercenary who can’t drive, can’t shoot straight, and on most days, can’t even crack a smile. He fully intends to send his mate away—to give her a chance at being matched to some stronger wolf—but stubborn Christina is intent on staying.

She might have been treated as a useless female back in Virginia, but her role in Anton’s small pack is clear. He needs to be loved and loved hard, and she’s just the woman for the job. She just needs to convince him to get out of her way and let her do it.

Heath’s Hope: Ambitious and career-minded Hope MacKenzie left Heath Beckett with a bleeding heart years ago. Now she’s back in town because her family’s bank needs her desperately. When she gives a personal loan to the women who own the local knitting shop without consulting Heath, who has helped them with their finances for years, the two must work together to ensure the ladies’ business plan is in tip-top shape. But will sharing their time awaken deeper feelings?

An Angel Fallen: Mark Mayer gives up being an angel to chase after his would-be beloved, a werewolf who’s gone feral because she won’t settle with a mate. He’s certain that trading his halo and wings for a mortal life with Sweetie is worth it—but convincing this stubborn werewolf that together they can find heaven on earth just might take a Christmas miracle.

Stuart Perrault needs the highway plans to restore his father’s faith in him and get him back on the CEO track. Falling for each other would mean disloyalty with a capital D. Are their feelings strong enough to warrant challenging their family ties?

Sweet Tooth: Artist Micah Taylor has returned home to tiny Fiesta, Florida, to pick up the pieces after the death of the father who disowned him. Cash Callahan, a born entrepreneur, bought a town icon and turned it into the Sweet Tooth. When Micah decides to buy his father’s favorite candy to lay on his grave, it leads to a scorching-hot relationship. Micah wants to publicly celebrate their rekindled feelings, but Cash fears the backlash from small-town minds intolerant of both gay and interracial romance. It’s up to Micah to convince him that life is sweeter when you’re true to yourself.

The Professor’s Secret: English professor Claudia Manchester secretly writes spicy romances under a pen name to keep her side job under wraps till she’s secured tenure.

Just My Type: Janiyah Henderson enjoys her stress-free post-college life, but when her dad insists she can’t handle a “real job,” she’s determined to prove him wrong.
