Fearless Rebel by Eden Butler
Ed Mescal had been all those things.
None of them fit.
That one did.
To the people who loved him, he’d been a brother. A grandson. A friend.
To Piper Warren, he thought, he’d been much more.
But lies that get buried are old and ugly once they’re unearthed, something Ed’s enemies are about to discover.
Now he’s back, freed from the past and ready to reclaim the life and love stolen from him.
If he can prove that even a rebel deserves a second chance.
Careful research into the Native American culture and the powwow circuit was conducted prior to the writing of this novel.
Please forgive any discrepancies that may be present. They come from my own mistakes and not from the kind educators, friends, and content editors who helped me.
Cocky Comedian by Shaw Hart
He was someone who didn’t fit into my world. He belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of some run-down comedy club in Los Angeles.
A clever, arrogant comedian named Anthony was the last person I expected to be stuck driving with on my cross-country drive.
I need the help with gas and expenses though, so we made a deal. Now I’m stuck stopping in every major city, sitting through open mics, and wrestling my fair share of the hotel covers away from him each night.
My road trip was supposed to be boring, but it’s turning into something else entirely. Could I be falling for the cocky comedian?
It was just supposed to be a ride, but then things changed. Will we be able to keep it together when the road trip is over?
They say all good things must come to an end.
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Cocky Comedian is a forced proximity/opposites attract romance inspired by Cocky Bastard.
Doctor Arrogance by Alandra Knight
I don’t need a man in my life to be happy…
What I need? A vacation.
Vitamin Sea? Yes, please!
The charming, handsome stranger sitting next to me on the plane talking all the way to paradise? Perfect start to this trip. I can resist him and his smoldering looks, killer smile and confident attitude.
Until I figure out that he’s my neighbor at the resort. His washboard abs and that perfect V…I don’t think I can resist him for a whole week.
Giving in to temptation is easy. The souvenir he leaves me with? Not so much.
What happens when the thrill of paradise is washed away?
Will he go, or can I convince him to stay?
Persistent Protector by Barbra Campbell
With little more going for me than a lenient judge who assigned community service hours instead of jail, I had to get my life under control.
That meant distancing myself from friends who weren’t ready to come clean.
Fulfilling the mandated service hours at the animal shelter occupied my spare time and gave me a sense of purpose—a belief that I could do good in the world. And while the pseudo-friendship I’d developed with the shelter Director helped, it didn’t fill my loneliness.
Because my life options rarely presented themselves in a timely or convenient manner, I found myself torn between two dating prospects. One had pulled himself up from a sordid past, just as I was trying to do. He offered comfort and understanding, and didn’t balk at being my first ever committed, exclusive relationship.
The other guy made my heart happy, my legs weak, and elicited a flurry of sexual thoughts, but came along one commitment too late. Or were those the reactions of my usual non-committal self, believing the grass was always greener on the other side?
The more I learned about the new people in my life, the more I learned that first impressions shouldn’t always be trusted.
Everyone had a past.
Everyone had a mission.
And like usual, luck wasn’t on my side.
Untangling the good from the bad could mean risking everything.
But for once, I wasn’t only worried about myself. The result of my actions could bring harm to the closest person I had to a friend, the Director of the animal shelter, and her ridiculous pet goat.
Could my past prove useful for unraveling the deceit and lies crafted by the man I’d let into my heart? And would my actions ruin the best chance I’d ever had at finding true love?
Doing the right thing wasn’t my forte, but there was no time left to sort out my options.
Bossy Burglar by A.J. Norris
One job. I had one job.
All I had to do was steal a diamond necklace, and I’d be brought into the Hermosa Beach Crime Syndicate’s inner circle. My brother’s murder would not go unpunished. Pull off one heist, and I would be one step closer to bringing down his killers.
The problem is someone else wants my spot on the crew. This dangerously sexy and infuriating man is in my way, threatening my chance to avenge my family. And he’s also a distraction I don’t need. Lincoln is smug and cocksure of himself, and I’m falling for him.
Maybe quitting college and my job as a barista in Temecula to move north was a spectacularly bad idea, but what choice did I have, the police were no help at all in solving my brother’s slaying. He was all I had in the world, and nobody seems to care but me.
I don’t know why I’m letting this woman get to me. Sure, Melanie’s feisty and stunningly gorgeous, but she’s on the wrong side of the law. Except, I can’t stop myself from wanting her despite the law I’ve been sworn to uphold.
She’s naïvely playing a game she can’t possibly win. I need to protect her at all costs, even if it means turning her in and losing her forever.
Cocky Duke by Annabelle Anders
Mrs. Ambrosia Bloomington, now a widow, is ready to start a new life amongst Mayfair elites without the overarching reach of her late husband, Mr. Harrison Bloomington. With her trunks loaded safely onto her own private carriage, she’s ready to face the world as an independent woman in Regency London.
She does not, however, bargain for cocksure Frenchman, Mr. Charles Cochran Bateman coming along and turning her very ordinary journey into the adventure of a lifetime.
She does not bargain for his laughter, his enthusiasm, nor his Joie de vie.
And blast and fiddlesticks, she certainly is not expecting to experience the sparks that charge the air between them.
And, it seems, apparently, neither is he…
Sexy Scoundrel by Raisa Greywood
Carlina Perez is in way over her head. Unexpectedly jobless and fostering an exotic pet with an insatiable appetite, this pastry chef needs a new gig faster than she can whip up a batch of scones. But when she’s tapped to serve as the personal chef to a haughty tabloid regular, she only considers the job out of sheer desperation. After all, Giorgio Acardi may be filthy rich and intoxicatingly handsome, but he’s also a first class scoundrel.
Giorgio Acardi has it all: money, fame, an endless string of beautiful companions, and the respect of his colleagues and rivals. From the outside looking in, his life is perfect. So perfect, in fact, that he’s even got his eye on a new personal chef. She’s talented and gorgeous, and it shouldn’t make a difference whether she hates him or not as long as she does the job. But there’s something about Carlina that Giorgio just can’t resist, and he hasn’t enjoyed success by backing down from a challenge.
Mother Clucker by Cat Johnson
They say opposites attract, but in this case, they might just combust . . .
Hermosa Beach seems to be the place for throwing together unlikely opposites.
My rooster Rowdy and his new crush, Pixie the goat.
The obnoxiously cocky cowboy from Texas and me . . .
But unlike Rowdy and Pixie, there’s no way I’m going to fall for David Strickland.
Nope. Never gonna happen. I could never be with a man so diametrically opposed to everything I believe . . . no matter how hot he is.
There couldn’t be two people more different than me and the beautiful little tree hugger and rooster rescuer Heather.
We can’t agree on anything, except to disagree. Sometimes more heatedly than other times. And believe me, things are starting to get hot between us, in more ways than one.
She’s the last thing I expected to find at an animal shelter in California. But now that I found her, I have no intention of letting her go.
Now I just have to convince her of that plan.
Cruel Beloved by T.L. Smith
Sign on the dotted line…
You, Delylah Andrews, agree to marry Korton Whiskey, on the date supplied in the attached contract. In doing so, you will NOT, by any means, try to break this contract. If you do, the envelope held in escrow will be released to all involved, and you will forfeit your right to the privacy Mr. Whiskey has granted you.
Lawyer acting on behalf of Mr. Whiskey
I stare at the letter I received attached to the contract in disbelief.
A one night stand who’s now blackmailing me—the daughter of a senator!
If he thinks he can extort anything from me with his perversions, he can think again.
Lucky Bastard by Kaylee Ryan
When my best friend Aubrey asked me to tag along to an event with her, I never could have imagined that it would be the day that my life changed forever.
He’s arrogant and demanding and doesn’t take a hint. Landon Barker, the quarterback for the Hermosa Beach Trojans, is a player on and off of the field. He’s got his sights set on me as his next play, but I see right through him. Aubrey says I’m overreacting, that I should give him a chance. What she doesn’t realize is men like Landon don’t fall for the girl next door. That’s not reality. She got her fairytale, although it was a long road. Not all of us are that lucky.
She’s a friend of our new kicking coach’s wife. When I ask Chance for her number, he tells me I have to find a way to get it myself.
Nothing when it comes to Emma has been easy. She’s the first woman ever to turn me down, and that won’t do. However, as time passes, it’s about more than that. It’s about her smile, her laugh, and just spending time with her. She thinks I’m a player, and she’s right. What she doesn’t know is that I play to win, and her heart is the ultimate trophy.
Cocky Notes by Leesa Bow
Who thought writing ‘LOSERS’ on a menu could lead to an affair of love notes?
It didn’t start out as love. How could it when I vowed never to fall in love…
Reef Burton, the sexy blue-eyed football player, and his mates are definitely not ‘Losers’ yet writing it on a menu gave me reason to smile. Only it didn’t make it to the trash.
He returns to the restaurant where I work wearing his killer smile. I wasn’t to know those squiggly lines and arrows meant something. An offensive play his football team learned at an earlier training session. Coming here discussing the team plays over coffee helps… so he says.
He’ll see what I wrote. Apart from it being awkward the next time I serve him he could also report me to my boss.
I can’t lose my job when in hindsight I need two to pay all the bills rolling in, and to care for my invalid father.
I’m thankful he kept it as our secret.
Until he left me a note.
Responding will only lead to more trouble.
So when Mr Blue Eyes-Blond Surfy-Hair gives me one of his spine tingling looks, how can I resist?
*COCKY NOTES is set in Australia, and takes place before Cocky Bastard.
Filthy Firefighter by Emma Louise
He looks like he belongs on stage, stripping out of his firefighter uniform, not running into a burning building to save me. But thank God he did.
When the smoke clears and my eyes focus on my savior, one look at his gorgeous face and tattoo-covered muscles, I know he’ll be too much for me to handle. It’s a good thing I never have to see him again, right?
Except, losing my home to a fire means finding somewhere new to live, and guess who just happens to be my new roommate? Hayden Flynn. The filthy-talking firefighter who’s been front and center of all of my dreams lately.
Our attraction is undeniable, but it’s the adventures he takes me on that has me falling for him, each new experience chipping away at the wall I’ve been hiding behind.
He wasn’t supposed to see past my scars.
He wasn’t supposed to break me apart piece by piece, then put me back together again.
He was just supposed to be a firefighter. I didn’t expect him to end up saving my life, in more ways than one.
Master Manipulator by Nicole S. Goodin
He was infuriating, arrogant and conceited. He was also my new seatmate.
Fifteen hours stuck next to the definition of tall, dark and handsome, and the only thing on his mind on our trip from California to Sydney… was me.
Ky Bateman made no secret of the fact he wanted me, and I made it clear he drove me crazy.
When my resolve finally wavered, we made a bet. I lost, he won, and I found myself on the back of his motorcycle, on the adventure of a lifetime.
I never intended to fall for the master manipulator, especially when I knew I was keeping secrets that could destroy everything between us.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Author note – Master Manipulator is a full-length standalone novel.
Arrogant Aussie by Kat T. Masen
It was supposed to be simple—drink tequila, forget about the life I’m running away from and have one wild night. That’s exactly what my next-door neighbor, Aubrey, told me to do.
That’s when I met him—the arrogant Aussie.
It’s easy to forget a night with a stranger until that stranger is living next door.
If it wasn’t for my horrific motorbike accident, I’d still be playing soccer. Instead, I’m crashing at my mate Chance’s place with no clue where my life is heading.
I needed an escape while I got my head together.
But it was never supposed to be with her—the girl next door. The rich heiress arranged to be married to some wealthy snob, and I was the arrogant Aussie who didn’t care about anyone but myself.
She couldn’t have been more wrong.
Gabriella Carmichael is a heartbreaker—the worst kind.
And I’m selfish, cocky, and won’t settle for second best.
I have to make her all mine.
There is no other choice.
Bossy Bastard by J.L. Perry
ASHTON BARCLAY, or as I like to call him, Mr. B. for Bossy, is fast becoming the bane of my existence.
After running into him, literally, he’s now popping up everywhere, and somehow managing to weave his way into my life.
He’s egotistical, smug, and so ridiculously good-looking it should be illegal—he’s way too hot to handle. I don’t do hot, those type of guys are more trouble than they’re worth.
Although, I’d secretly love to do him.
We’ve kissed once—it was smokin’, and led to me dry humping his leg in front of the entire club like a shameless hussy. Oh, and did I mention I deep throated his thumb within seconds of meeting him? I didn’t even know his name yet.
I have issues, big ones.
He makes me do things I never imagined myself doing.
He makes me feel things I’m not comfortable feeling.
It just wouldn’t work, even if I wanted it to. Between us we have more baggage than a carousel at LAX airport.
He’s everything I want, but can never have.
Or so I thought.
Hotshot Deceiver by K E Osborn
We all have secrets.
Like the fact that I portray myself as a simple florist, living a mundane life.
Which is a far stretch from reality.
My family is rock god royalty. My father an ‘80s icon, my siblings all celebrities in their own right. Then there’s me, Lyric Griffin, hiding in plain sight trying to be everything I’m not.
Along comes Eddie, someone I find myself completely attracted to. I’m simply Lyric to him, not a princess of rock. He’s gorgeous, a little cocky, and knows what he wants — me.
But I made a mistake.
I trusted him, and he betrayed me.
Is Eddie nothing but a hotshot deceiver?
Fateful Fighter by Kathy Coopmans
“I want a divorce.”
No woman wants to say those words. No woman who is still in love with her husband anyway.
Our marriage has been tested, repeatedly.
It’s been dragged through tabloids and rumors and fans that just won’t let us be.
Through it all, we’ve remained unbreakable.
We didn’t have the perfect marriage because perfection doesn’t exist.
But we had love. We had trust. We had chemistry that to this day sets everything inside me on fire.
Then one life-threatening statement creates a chain of lies that leaves me no choice but to say those horrible words.
I never thought I’d say them.
I never thought my husband would ignore me when I did.
I never thought the man I love would sever the vows we took.
I never thought I’d pack my bags and move from our home in L.A. to our getaway cottage in Hermosa Beach.
Then again, I never thought he’d choose the fate of his life over his fate with me.

There was someone… once. But she was looking for a white picket fence and I was headed for war.
Now, my years of service to my country are catching up with me and I’m ready for a change.
I just never expected that change to be Shannon, or that she would be in trouble.

She might not want my help, but I’m not walking away this time.
Even if it won’t have the ending either of us were looking for…
Dirty Dealer by Kacey Shea
On paper I have it all. Wealth, security, and a collection of vehicles that spark envy, even amongst LA’s rich and famous. Money is all I ever wanted, but now that I have it in spades, I’m restless.
For the first time in my life, I want things cash can’t procure. I want a real relationship. Beauty and brains. A salacious little minx who isn’t afraid to call me out. My equal, in and out of the bedroom.
The problem is I have no clue where to find a woman like that.
Imagine my luck when I come upon a curvy, gorgeous maiden in distress, stranded on the side of I-10 like a mirage fashioned from my deepest desires. It’s fate. Kismet.
Only she isn’t impressed. Not by my money, my power, or my ability to make all her dreams come true. Hell, she won’t even accept my ride without an argument. But I’m not giving up. She doesn’t know who she’s dealing with, and I’m not afraid to play dirty.
Jilted Jock by Rebecca Jenshak
He was someone who belonged on the cover of Sports Illustrated instead of in my small beach town.
A sexy, cocky Australian soccer star named Finn was the last person I expected to be living with for two weeks.
He showed up at my brother’s house on his wedding night, hot, drunk, and very much not married. Next thing I knew, we were roommates, spending nights watching TV and getting to know one another.
Those two weeks turned into more than either of us bargained for.
He was fresh off a broken heart and I had a boyfriend.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for the jilted jock, especially when I knew we’d be going our separate ways.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except he’s not letting me go without a fight.
Smug Bastard by Stacey Marie Brown
It was my time, a cross country drive heading home for my brother’s wedding to figure out my life after college. Me, my dog named Goat, and the open road. That’s all I wanted.
He wasn’t supposed to be part of it. My older brother’s high school friend and my sister’s ex. The cocky boy my eleven-year-old-self hated.
The infamous Smith Blackburn.
AKA Smug Bastard.
The guy every girl wanted to be with and every guy wanted to be.
The day after graduation, he left town and disappeared, losing contact with my family. But nine years later, he resurfaces and becomes a thorn in my side once again.
After his motorcycle breaks down, my older siblings convince me to let him ride home with me. Kyle wants his old buddy at his wedding, and Kasey, still carrying a torch for him, wants nothing more than to see him again, convinced they are meant to be. It’s the last thing in the world I want, but I learned long ago going up against the powerhouse twins is futile.
After nine years, we’ve both grown up, but our mutual dislike lingers. Though I can’t deny he is the sexiest man I have ever seen in my life. His piercing blue eyes, gorgeous rugged face, and muscular, tall figure belong on magazine covers. But he’s still a smug bastard, and I’m still the annoying little “Baby K.”
Spending every minute together in a tiny camper van starts to twist the lines of hate, igniting feelings and passions I’ve never felt before, shoving me out of my safety bubble. Tension grows, and nights are filled with strain and forbidden desire.
But I can feel him holding back. Cagey and cryptic, Smith’s dark past hints at the surface.
When it finds us, nothing could have prepared me for the truth—the secrets that flip everything upside down.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.
He was never meant to be mine.
Cocky Striker by Evan Grace
Some say I’m cocky — I say I’m confident.
Things have always come easy for me; sports, academics…girls. And I’ve used all of that to my advantage the past three years of college.
I’ve got it all, or at least I thought I did until Laken walks into my life.
I’ve never desired a relationship like my parents have, but there is some mysterious pull I feel toward this brunette I’ve noticed around campus.
And with each interaction we have, I long to know her more. Yet the closer we get, the harder she resists and the higher the walls go up.
I sense there’s something more – a secret she’s hiding – one she doesn’t trust to share with me yet.
But she will, if I have my way, and I’ll do anything if she’ll take a chance on me. On us. I grew up hearing the story of how my parents met, their separation, how my dad fought for them, and their happily ever after. I just never expected or wanted to find that for myself.
Now that I have I don’t want to ever let them go.
But when I’m given the opportunity of a lifetime after graduation, will the offer of my heart be enough for her to accept? Or will I lose her forever?
Vengeful Bastard by Nicole Dykes

The things he does to me, I can’t keep my mind off of him.
But God, I need to keep my distance, yet I’m so drawn to him.

But I know this can never last.
It’s not in him to settle down, and he surely won’t with his best friend’s sister.
Filthy Forward by Kelsey Cheyenne
Cocky. Filthy. Player.
Tatum Trevino waltzed into my life like he owned it. The renowned soccer star showed up as my new coach and changed everything.
Until rumors started flying about the bad boy prodigy kicked off his team. I thought he was nothing but another cocky playboy, but there was another side to him under the facade.
Late training sessions, secret getaways, and a delicious sleeve of tattoos led to temptation. We kept our relationship private, but I wasn’t the only secret he was keeping.
And it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out.
Bitter Edge by Ariana Rose
He was sent to put my body and dreams back together. Were they things I even wanted anymore?
Spencer Broten was a pain in my backside from the moment we met.
I was conned into going on a road trip with him. Within hours, I was realizing he wasn’t just my trainer. He was much more.
This unnamed, unplanned winding road turned into us getting to know each other as we truly were.
Two broken bodies, two broken souls finding out we were more the same than different.
The line between hate and love is a bitter edge.
Outside or Inside.
Where will we land?
Reckless Rock Star by Victoria Ashley
I was never supposed to want to keep her.
She was meant to be borrowed.
Mine for six days and not a day longer.
She doesn’t belong to me.
She belongs to someone else.
The closest person I have outside of the screaming fans and paparazzi—a constant in my new life— other than the whiskey I drown myself in to numb the pain left by someone else.
But a secluded cabin in the woods and my ex who decided she’s not over me forces me to go to the extreme in order to take control of my world again before I lose it completely.
Unfortunately for me, my brother’s girlfriend is the only girl I haven’t slept with and made fall for me, resulting in hating me in the end.
She’s my only option.
Sharing a room in a cabin with me is most girls’ dream come true, but for Natalie, she claims it’s her worst nightmare. She thinks I’m a cocky bastard and has always been good at destroying my ego.
I never realized when I asked to borrow her for the trip, that I’d feel something I haven’t felt in a long time, or that I’d like the way she pretends she doesn’t enjoy being around me.
Have you ever borrowed something and didn’t want to give it back?
Yeah, well, me too. And I’m starting to think she should have been mine to begin with…

Vicious Vet by Ashley Munoz
I never imagined that I’d be adding Manager of Operations for Park Street Animal Shelter to my resume. Not until my firm closed up, my boss moved away, and I was asked, nearly begged to step in and help. I’d do about anything for my old boss and friend, and since I wasn’t offered a spot with the firm when they moved, I needed something to keep me surviving here in Temecula, California.
Once I found a decent allergy medication and adjusted to the smell that accompanied the shelter, I was oddly excited to start my new venture.
That is until I met our on-call Veterinarian.
Local animal doctor, famously rich, unfathomably gorgeous and my worst nightmare.
I can put up a good fight, always have, but against Greyson; I’ve always been flustered, irritated…weak.

Four years I’ve managed to avoid him. I’ve stayed on my side of town with my head down and now he’s here…and I can’t escape him.
Some men are cordial, kind, professional…but Greyson Knox is nothing but a vicious vet looking to score.
My first order of business was to strip him of his job, get him out of my clinic. But like everything between us, it turned into a war.
Except for this time, losing would strip me of something I never expected to have. Something I’ve been too afraid to want and when Greyson plays dirty by revealing a secret he’s been harboring; my battle lines grow weak, leaving me vulnerable for attack.

I’m probably not the first runaway bride to get discovered hiding in the back of a stranger’s pickup truck. And Maverick should probably dump me on the side of the road and be on his way. Instead, he agrees to give me a ride across the country.
I quickly learn that Maverick isn’t just a sexy football star. He’s also bossy as hell with a surprising sweet side.
We’re supposed to stay in separate hotel rooms, not share nights fraught with sexual chemistry. We’re supposed to drive straight to Chicago, not veer off on romantic side trips.
So when absolutely nothing goes according to plan, I tell myself that whatever happens on this temporary road trip will be just that—temporary.
Nothing lasts forever.
The last thing I need is to get attached to a bossy baller whose priority will always be football.
But just when I think I’ve got everything under control…
Maverick changes the play at the line.

British Big-Shot by J.H. Croix
Next level opposites attract.
If there’s a contest for two people who don’t belong together, Jasper and I would definitely win.
Jasper’s tall, dark, and waaaay too handsome to be on my farm. He’s an uptight British big-shot, and my goat got mud all over him only minutes after he showed up. It’s safe to say we didn’t get off to the best start.
To make matters complicated, Jasper owns half of my farm. I’m broke, he’s dripping with money, and I hate him on sight.
Inconveniently, hating him only seems to make me want him more. Even worse, he’s staying here. On the farm. With me. Because of some ridiculous clause in his grandfather’s will.
Life didn’t prepare me to resist a man as devastatingly charming as Jasper. We’re next level opposites, and my hormones aren’t getting the memo that we do not belong together.
Except, maybe we do. Maybe Jasper is about to prove me wrong.
Cocky Cruiser by Nikki Sparxx
I never expected to meet a handsome stranger on a family vacation with my brother, Chance and his wife and son. And I sure as hell didn’t expect to hop on a nineteen day cruise with said handsome stranger across the Pacific.
Hey, you only live once, right?
I didn’t have the best track record. I’d made some bad decisions in my life and hurt people in the process. For some reason, this trip felt like a new beginning for me; a fresh start to finally get my life back on track.
I just didn’t plan to fall in love in the process.
I wasn’t sure what made me invite the beautiful bombshell on the cruise with me; maybe I just didn’t want to be alone and be reminded of what I’d lost the entire time.
I didn’t expect anything in return from her. I didn’t want to complicate things. But somehow one thing led to another and I kept telling myself that she was just a fling. I didn’t do love or relationships and I wanted to keep it that way. Once the cruise was over, we’d go our separate ways and would have some unforgettable memories to last a lifetime.
At least that’s what my plan was. But sometimes, life doesn’t always go according to plan.
Brazen Biker by Jessica Ames
The last thing Carla wants is to go on a road trip across country with a loud-mouthed, bossy biker. Rooster lives up to his name as the cockiest member of her father’s motorcycle club and it’s pretty much hate at first sight. After growing up in the MC life, she’s used to dealing with men like him, but there’s something about him she can’t shake. Beneath the cocky veneer, there’s something more there, something sincere, and that has her interested.
Rooster didn’t want to travel thousands of miles with a stuck-up woman who is completely immune to his charms—or so it seems. He’s sure he can see a crack in the walls she’s pulled up and he’s determined to get through it. Too bad this trip isn’t one for pleasure, but a protection detail, because he really wants to get to know her better, but with their enemies moving against them they might have to put love on hold long enough to stay alive.

Filthy Friend by Gwyn MCNAMEE
Only one word can describe the man who performs online as HRD4U…
He really knows how to work that massive asset on camera.
Couple that with the dirty talk he uses to describe his fantasies while he does it…
It’s enough to drive me mad while I watch.
Because just like my screenname says, INEEDSOMED.
Too bad men like HRD4U don’t exist in real life.
Apparently, finding a nice guy with a nasty mouth and a mammoth gift between the legs is asking too much.
Instead, I just get snooze-inducing lovers and dates with no chemistry.
Having my BFF Flynn McAllister right next door helps ease some of the pain of breakup after breakup.
But he can’t know what I really want or why my relationships always fail.
I just want to be dirty.
But now, all my dreams might be coming true…
All because of my filthy friend.
Filthy Friend by Gwyn MCNAMEE is a best friends to lovers romance

One night. That’s all he wanted. But after just one night with Sam, he knew once would never be enough!
Tempers and fists fly when a misunderstanding occurs that causes friendships to be tested and hearts to be broken.

Cocky Delight by Maria Macdonald
Nola Lewis needs to find a job, lose her boyfriend and train her cat, and not necessarily in that order.
My life is a complete mess. I have a sister who’s threatening to sue me, my boyfriend’s a douche who I should have dumped years ago. My neighbor’s goat is a freak and my cat is really Satan in a fur coat.
On top of all that I also desperately need a job.
When my best friend’s husband offers me a position in his company, I snap it up. What I don’t expect is to be working with the rude – and unfortunately completely gorgeous – man who sat laughing at me through a coffee shop window.
While I tried to pull my heel from a grate in the sidewalk, as it poured with rain.
I flipped him the bird while I stood glaring, but that didn’t keep him away.
Kato Black is not what I need right now, but I’m not sure my body agrees with me.
Good Cop, Bad Boy by K.L. Clare
From award-winning author K.L. Clare comes a sexy,
new standalone Cocky Bastard crossover novel.
As one of the most sought-after realtors in Hermosa Beach, I knew the market better than anyone. When a potential client’s car was struck on his way to California, I volunteered to go get him, as I would do for any other client.
But this time, I knew it was different as soon as he stepped out of the repair garage.
I was captivated by the strength in his eyes. By the confidence in his walk. The sensual curve of his mouth.
Falling for that cocky cop was never part of the plan. Still, as our road trip detoured through the San Bernardino Mountains, his brazen charm wore down my defenses and shattered my one vow—no cops.
I didn’t want to become like my mother. She would forever be the police chief’s wife who had cut and run.
I loathed Josh Mendes because I wanted him. His arrogance infuriated me. His unexpected soft touch and his sweet pillow talk soothed me. I resisted him until I couldn’t.
Then, he threw me into a cold jail cell.
All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one that I hadn’t seen coming.
Conceited Concierge by Renea Porter
A fresh start in Temecula, CA was exactly what I needed to get over my breakup. I was looking forward to Palm Trees, fine wine, the beaches and killer sunsets. But I never expected to run into handsome Levi Bateman while still on my way to California. The last thing I needed was a conceited passenger. I had a job to focus on.
I knew Levi would be a distraction because we would be working in close proximity. He was so sure of himself, resisting him was even harder. Not only did I have a job to focus on, I had a broken heart to mend and I was ten years older than Levi. There was too much baggage between the both of us.
Besides I didn’t know if I’d be staying in Temecula after the job was complete.
All good things must come to end.
Maybe before it even started.
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
Tough Guy by Jamie K. Schmidt
My sister lives to ruin my life.
That isn’t fair. It’s not her fault our dance instructor called me fat and awkward, and our parents funded Lisa’s training because I had a better head for business.
So when Lisa went off the rails after her injury, it naturally came to me to track her down. The trail starts at the Spearmint Rhino —an upscale gentlemen’s club five minutes off the Las Vegas strip, where a group of hot Aussie soccer players are having a bachelor party. Hello, Chance Bateman ! My sister still wears his jersey as a nightgown . However, Lisa’s trail goes cold at Dalton’s, which is owned by a world-famous bouncer, Miles Carvello—six feet four inches of muscle, tattoos, and swagger. Combined with his intense green-eyed gaze, Miles makes my insides sizzle. I’m just not sure if Miles Carvello is the reason she’s hiding out or not. Danger seems to surround him.
How does a former Broadway hoofer wind up in Vegas as a stripper? I’m about to find out, since no one will talk to me because I’m an outsider. And besides, Miles thinks I’m too much of a prude to do it.
I need to find my sister. She’s in trouble. I can feel it. I keep running into the bachelor party as well as Miles while I’m out searching for her. And while both of them are a good time, they’re not getting me any closer to finding Lisa. And I’ve got a terrible feeling that her time is running out.
I don’t remember Jackie Mitchell’s sister. Just another stripper with baggage in a long line of them. But Jackie? Damn, she’s the real deal. I don’t want to get distracted. I need to shoot this club into the stratosphere. I owe it to my uncle’s memory not to let the gangsters win. But she oozes sensuality that reminds me that I should take time to enjoy the finer things in life – like her long, toned legs wrapped around my shoulders.
However, the demons of my past are pushing into my future. If they’re going after my employees, as a way to get to me —they picked the wrong guy to mess with. And if they touch Jackie, all bets are off and I’ll put them in the ground—and to hell with the consequences.
Tough Guy takes place a year before the events of Cocky Bastard and features a few appearances by our favorite Aussie soccer player, Chance Bateman before he meets the love of his life, Aubrey.
