Can’t wait to dive into this one!
I never knew when he’d come to me. Only that he would.
I’d never even kissed a boy the night I met Stone. The night I saw him kill. The night he spared my life. That was only the beginning.
He turns up in my car again and again, dangerous and full of raw power. “Drive,” he tells me, and I have no choice. He’s a criminal with burning green eyes, invading my life and my dreams.
The police say he’s dangerously obsessed with me, but I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about him. Maybe it’s wrong to let him touch me. Maybe it’s wrong to touch him back. Maybe these twisted dates need to stop. Except he feels like the only real thing in my world of designer labels and mansions.
So I drive us under threat, until it’s hard to remember I don’t want to be there.
Until it’s too late to turn back.
HOSTAGE is a dangerous standalone romance by New York Times bestselling authors Skye Warren and Annika Martin. It’s set in the same world as PRISONER, but can read separately!

Max sets me down gently, and brushes a strand of wet hair from my face. His eyes are stormy blue in the darkness, and his fingertips hot against my face.
My breath catches. My eyes drift to his mouth, and then just like that, he’s pulling me close again, into a hot, reckless kiss.
God, I’ve been dying to taste him again. His mouth is hard and possessive, claiming mine, and a shudder of lust rolls through me at the feel of him. His hands are all over me, molding me against him as the fire between us blazes hotter, and I forget everything. Like my rules, and our arrangement, and the fact I’ve sworn off men like him . . . None of it matters, not with Max’s tongue doing wicked things to mine, and his body so hard against me.
About the Author
Combining her passions for books, sex, and well-fitted suits, Lila Monroe wrote her first romantic comedy, The Billionaire Bargain, in 2015 and hasn’t stopped since. She loves writing about smart alpha men, and the strong and sassy women who try to tame them.
Very Irresistible Playboy – Billionaire Bachelors: Book 1
This is my first book by this author, but won’t be the last!
This story of Max and Hallie is fantastic! Everything needed for a great romantic comedy! You have the alpha swagger with a touch of sweetness that is Max and you have the feisty, take no prisoners Hallie to compliment him! The chemistry of these two are on fire! The naughty times were so steamy, I thought my Kindle was gonna fog up! I loved how we got to see both sides of the story with both Hallie and Max’s POVs. The secondary characters were fabulous and want me to know more! There is a bit of angst that makes you want to cheer harder for their happily ever after.
I really enjoyed reading this book, it was refreshing, fun and oh so naughty in the best of ways! I can’t wait to see what happens in the next installment of this series!

Midnight Blue, an all-new sexy standalone from LJ Shen is available NOW!
Author: LJ Shen
Release Date: January 18th
It should have been easy.
I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.
I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.
The worst part is that I should have known better.
Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.
“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”
Sounds familiar? That’s because it was a headline in a tabloid the second time he got arrested.
Guess what? I didn’t listen.
I signed the contract.
World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.
My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.
Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.
Then he took my heart.
Then he took my all.
Nat’s words came back and haunted me like a bad haircut from the eighties. An irrational need to check the goods took over me. It wasn’t like he minded. According to the rumors, his dick had seen more cameras than Kendall Jenner. Slowly—so painfully slowly—my eyes drifted down his sinewy body. I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Whatever I had in mind, though, didn’t come close to the real thing. Thick, long but not atrocious. With thin veins running through its length.
“Nice view?” he groaned, tucking his junk back into his briefs. His profile was glorious. Strong jaw, pouty lips, eyes like sex…
My eyes snapped up when I realized he was talking to me. “I wasn’t…”
“Looking? Yes, you were. Next time take a picture. It lasts longer.” He rolled his zipper upward and flushed the toilet with the toe of his boot. He turned around and squirted soap into his palm, washing his hands almost violently—rubbing between each finger and scratching his knuckles like he wanted to shed his own skin. When he was done, he looked around for a towel.
I cleared my throat, scrambling to regain my wits. “Longer than the glimpse or longer than your performance?”
Casually—so unbearably casually—he wiped his wet hands over my purple dress. I gasped, moving sideways. It looked like he was about to open the door and get out, but before I had the chance to yell at him for using me as a human towel, he slammed me against the wall, bracing both his arms above my head and pinning me to my spot. I let out a shriek of surprise at the sudden proximity.
Alex Winslow is touching me. Willingly, my surprisingly pitiful brain squealed.
Heat rolled off his body, making my back arch and my breath catch in my throat.
“Let’s make one thing clear—I could fuck you to a point of numbness without even breaking a sweat if I wanted to. Now, careful, New Girl. If you don’t keep your distance from me, I think I just might.”

How is your soul feeling today?
That’s the start of this book and let me tell you, L.J. puts your soul through the wringer with this one!
This story of Indigo and Alex is amazing!
Alex is the epitome of a tortured musician. LJ never sugarcoats her characters, she makes them real, she makes them dark, she makes them gritty and swoony with a capital “S”! Alex is no exception, add to that the British element and wowza, what a hero (or anti-hero for some of the book, which is amazing).
Indigo develops a lot of nicknames in this story and they are all poignant. She is strong, she is fierce and she doesn’t take any crap from anyone! The best of the best heroine! Her back story is so moving and really shapes her to the person she becomes.
Alex and Indigo’s love story is rocky, and it’s hard, and again, LJ doesn’t sugarcoat it. That’s what makes this story so good, you have to get through the ugly to get to the beautiful and it was so worth it.
This story is gonna stick with me for a while, I hope when you read it, it will stick to you too!
Thank you for your words L.J.! And thank you for bring us into your world of characters and stories!

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.
In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!
Wow, this story was so gripping! When you are reading it you know something happened, it hovers in the shadows. You get small glimpses of it when while you are reading. But you never truly see it until the end, which then becomes clear.
This story is more than just about Dean and Allison, it’s about so much more. Yes there is some sexual moments, and while they are smoking hot, it’s so much more about the feelings and the guilt and judgement that is so poignant. Dean and Allison’s chemistry is off the charts and I loved their interaction. I liked the alternate POV’s to see just how damaged and alike they both were.
Something that Allison thinks, really struck home with me “It’s why I like to read thrillers and dark romances. No matter how bad it gets, when it end, usually there is a happily ever after…” That’s what this story is a dark romance with not necessarily a happily ever after but definitely and ever after with the hope and happiness a work in progress. That to me makes a story really stand out!
Thank you for your story and thank you for giving me a new meaning to She Asked For It…..
The first time we met was at a party.
Your ex arrived to show off the person he’d left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.
I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty–and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.
The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.
The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.
I know I’m crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that’s the only reaction I can get out of you, I’ll gladly take it.
You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.
I think I’m falling for you, and I know it’s wrong. I know that I’m only supposed to be your adviser and nothing more, but here’s the thing. I think you’re falling for me too.

“This is serious, Poppy. Will you promise?”
“What am I promising?” This man had a way of getting me to say things, to feel things, to admit things that I might not have otherwise. I wasn’t sure if it was because he was older and wiser and that much more cunning at these types of discussions, or if it was just because being near him seemed to physically lower my inhibitions. He was like a walking shot of tequila.
“I need you to promise me that if anything physical happens between us—that it will be very consensual, and very sex-positive. I need you to understand that I will worship you and make you come So. Many. Fucking Times.”
He annunciated those words so clearly and slowly, I felt them with every beat of my heart, every pulse of heat between my legs.
Oblivious to my hammering heart, Zach continued. “But I also need you to know that if I do or say anything you don’t like, all you have to do is say so and everything will stop. Just the word no, Poppy. Use it and I promise to leave you alone.”
“Leave me alone as in stop mentoring me, stop helping me in the program?”
His face was serious and he shook his head without even considering it. “I will never stop mentoring you, as long as you want it. Giving in to our attraction—or not—will never be a condition for my help. I want you to succeed, and it has nothing to do with how much I want you in my bed. Do you understand that?”
I felt myself nodding my head.
I knew what he was saying. Despite how aggressively Zach put his feelings on the subject of us out there—I knew he’d never betray my wishes.
“Okay,” I murmured.
He considered me for a long moment, neither of us blinking.
“Why did you approach me that night at the party, Poppy. Did you find me attractive?”
Was he fucking serious?
Of course I find him attractive. Actually, attractive was too weak a word. I found him mesmerizing. Addictive. Enchanting. Impossible.
“I’m not saying I do, but if I wanted something to happen …” I swallowed a wave of nerves and took a shallow breath as Zach’s mouth curved into a grin.
“Something as in finding out how many times in a row I can make you come using my mouth, my hands, and my …”
I held up one hand. “Yes. That. How would it work, isn’t it, like, forbidden?”
God, why did the word forbidden make me feel even hotter?

Landish is a WALL STREET JOURNAL & USA TODAY bestselling author and her
books have garnered a legion of praise from her readers.
When she’s not plotting about how she will introduce you to your next sexy as

Lauren warmly invites you to her worlds of rock hard abs, chiseled smiles, and
men with deep, fat pockets…but beware! These stories are guaranteed to have you
addicted and needing your next fix!
Woooweee! What a novel! This is the first book by Lauren I have read, but I will be reading more, I guarantee it!
This story of Derrick and Katrina goes down smooth like satin pajamas on silk sheets!
I believe we women tend to be more audio whereas men are more visual in the romance and sexiness area, I could be wrong but I know it applies to me and mine. So this book, reading what Derrick says to Kat is Hawt! (Yes with a capital H!) And I love how Derrick draws Kat out of her shell so she gives it as good as she gets!
This book is also so funny, definitely some laugh out loud moments and general happiness abound. I say general, because with every good romantic comedy you have to have a bit of angst, and you get it with this book!
I am so glad that I was introduced to this author (with help of some great PR companies that I am working with)! I will be following her everywhere! Well done Lauren, well done!
