Down to Fall (A Love Happens Novel #5) by Jodi Watters

A lust story. Only meant to be temporary.
A love story. Always meant to be permanent.
A hate story. Never meant to be.
This… is all three.

Nicole
It started in an elevator in California. Our lust story.
You know, the kind you know going in is a bad idea, but… the nagging desire and all. A few drinks in the hotel bar across from our workplace. A few nights in a luxury suite twenty floors above. What could it hurt?
Innocent fun would be had by all, and I’d walk away a well-satisfied woman. Ready to continue my life of brokenhearted loneliness.

Grady
It started on a ridge in Afghanistan. Our love story. You know, the kind you felt in your soul at first sight, but… the tragic circumstances and all. Intentionally casual conversation over Irish whiskey. Intentionally casual sex over the course of two weeks. How could I refuse?
Guilt-ridden bonds would be built, and I’d confess my darkest sin. Beg for forgiveness five years overdue and clean my conscience along with it.

It started with the cold hard truth. Our hate story.
You know, the kind that could end a surprisingly beautiful beginning.

All books in the LOVE HAPPENS SERIES are standalones. They can be read on their own, or as a companion to the other books in the series:

Excerpt Down to Fall by Jodi Watters

Ten minutes after he agreed, Nicole found herself standing inside a deluxe suite at the Hyatt, their tryst beginning in the lap of luxury.
It would end here too, but only after she’d had her fill of him and/or thirteen days had passed, whichever came first. Based on the way that gray t-shirt stretched across his broad shoulders, and if there were tattoos and tan lines under it, she’d run out of time before she ran out of desire.
Backing her up against the hotel room door, Grady leaned in but didn’t touch her, only locking the deadbolt and flipping the security bar, the sound loud in the hushed darkness of the room.
“You sure about this?” His masculinity surrounded her, warm and wicked. His height dwarfed her, tall and tantalizing.
“Yes,” she whispered. “Are you?”
“No,” he choked out, his voice gravelly. “No, I’m not sure. But there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”
They’d never been this close before, but if she’d known his strength was so powerful, his scent so heady, his size so commanding, she’d have cornered him weeks ago. Probably humped his camo-panted leg like a dog in heat.
Well, he’d better be ready. She was about to be unleashed. Which was to say, he’d be on the receiving end of her largely limited—and significantly rusty—sexual repertoire.
Comparing herself to the animalistic dynamo that was a female canine in heat was her ego talking. Oh, she could get the job done, no doubt about it, but Grady might not be so impressed he’d hire her again, if you caught her drift.
Thirteen days might turn into a one-and-done situation.
But luckily, she’d made that quick drugstore run during her lunch break yesterday, so she was fully prepared. Condoms, a Lady Bic razor and shaving gel, and a king-sized Kit Kat bar completed her purchase. The condoms were a necessity—safety first, ’cause that’s how ole Nicole rolled. The razor because, between the two of them, he should be the only one with stubble. The chocolate was simply because she hadn’t had sex in a longer timespan than your average bad-credit car loan, and that fact would make any girl self-medicate.
Thankfully she’d had the foresight to buy a half dozen candy bars and wasn’t ashamed to admit she’d powered one down just prior to stalking him via the elevator tonight.
Chocolate might give her cellulite, but it also gave her courage. Courage she desperately needed, because right about now, she was feeling like a born-again virgin.
Unsure. Unsteady. And unprepared for the sight he was about to bestow upon her.
Bare, muscled skin.
Their suite was several stories high, the only glow in the room from the small lamp on the nightstand and that of a thousand twinkling lights from the surrounding downtown buildings. The panoramic floor to ceiling windows offered an amazing view, day or night, and though the drapes were drawn open to the outside world, they were cocooned inside by the soft radiance of a single bulb.
The only people on earth.
Moving deeper into the room, his eyes barely left hers as he tugged his t-shirt off, lazily dropping it to the floor.
My god.
There were tattoos. Plural. And in nearly the exact location of her fantasies.
The letter F was inked over his left pec muscle, a single initial monogrammed in an Old English decorative script. F for Foster. Underneath that same glorious pec muscle was a short verse, in a cleaner, simpler font, that wrapped horizontally around his torso toward his back.
It was too dark in the room for her to read the words, but that task was now on the tippy top of her To-Do list.
What she could read was the larger quote tattooed along the right side of his collar bone. De oppresso liber. To liberate the oppressed. The motto of the United States Army Special Forces.
Don’t ask her how she knew that. It wasn’t a fun tale to tell.
“What’s going through that pretty head of yours?”
Swallowing, she regained the use of language. “That I wanna lick your tattoos.”
A smartass grin graced his beautifully sculpted mouth. “Damn. Should’ve tattooed my dick.”
The button on his pants popped, the slide of his zipper letting loose a hoard of butterflies in her stomach when he opened the placket. Dark shadows hid his best asset, his intention only to relieve the pressure, not release the beast.
He needn’t worry. She wanted to lick that too.

The Best Man by Winter Renshaw

I didn’t know her name, but I heard her laugh, tasted her lips, felt her warm skin as I held her in my arms. Together we watched our young children playing in the sand, the warm ocean lapping at the shore behind them as the setting sun painted the sky. She was my soulmate and this was our life, our beautiful forever …

Then I woke up—alone in a hospital room, connected to wires and machines.

There was no wife. No kids. Not a single soul waiting for me. That life I dreamt of—never existed.

The woman I loved, the woman I knew better than I knew myself—wasn’t real.

Until she walked into my life six months later …

And it was both the best and worst day of my life because the woman of my dreams—was the one woman I could never have.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This angsty contemporary romance contains NO cheating or love triangles.

Haven by Montana Ash

The Human-Shifter wars – HUSH – almost three centuries ago, decimated the land, the oceans – and the human population. In Avium, Wolf shifters now rule with teeth and claws, leaving humans as little more than slaves.

As mercenaries who don’t give a shit about traditional hierarchies, Wulfric and his pack move from place to place, taking on jobs to give their lives some meaning. But Wulf is luckier than most. He has Quill. A fellow wolf shifter and Wulfric’s long-time lover, Quill may not be Wulf’s true mate but that doesn’t change the way the pair feel about each other. They have spent years fighting side by side, securing their pack – and their love. Their world is turned upside down when a chance encounter reveals the impossible. Can the two men really be destined to share the same soulmate? And a human soulmate at that?

Naturally suspicious, Haven doesn’t believe the two gorgeous shifters when they claim to be her mates. She is more than just your average human, with secrets that could change the future of the world, as well as an ability that could get her killed. But as a common enemy threatens the safety of all they hold dear, Haven realises that denying Wulf and Quill could be just as dangerous as denying herself – a hard lesson she learned long ago. Haven will have to set old insecurities aside and trust in her alpha wolves if they are going to get the happy ending they all yearn for – and create a future free of their tortured pasts.

Haven was previously published in the Apocalypse anthology. There is no new content. It is a shorter novel, just under 50k words, and is MMF – with MM as well as MF scenes. Enjoy!

Love Game by Emma Scott

Sikai Solomon is a tennis prodigy.

A mega-talent.

A legend in the making.

Kai is also the official, undisputed, bad boy of the “gentleman’s” sport with more smashed rackets than trophies; more penalty fines than prize money. The temperamental Australian sells out every match and the crowd loves his unconventional style of play, but when his fuse gets lit? Game. Over.

With the Australian Open only a few weeks away, a Grand Slam win should be a no-brainer. Instead, Kai’s self-sabotage has him on the verge of being banned from professional tennis for life. As a last-ditch effort to help save his career, his agent hires Daisy Watson to spend two weeks with the hotheaded superstar.

Daisy is a specialist in the healing arts. Or she will be, someday. Right now, she’s a broke receptionist at a Reiki Wellness Center in Maui, Hawaii, trying to make ends meet and heal her own emotional wounds from a dark episode in her past she’d rather forget.

Kai and Daisy are fire and water, but her compassion could be the perfect balm for his hot-blooded temper. His fearless, take-no-prisoners approach to life could be just what she needs to rediscover her own power…or they might end up with nothing.

Because in the sport of tennis, love means zero.

*Love Game was previously published in the Team Player 2 romance anthology

Weakened Mountains (Artemis University Book 4) by Erin R Flynn

My name is Tamsin Vale, and I survived my first semester at Artemis University… And several Biblical plagues. Of all the things I’d been expecting, plagues weren’t one of them. We still don’t know who the culprit was or if it was simply a prank, so there’s possibly another threat out there against me.

Add it to the list.

Unfortunately, that damn list is getting long.

But despite all of that, I think I’m getting the hang of this college thing. I like my classes, I’m doing well in them, and I’m making progress on also finishing high school. I have some normal in my completely crazy life with friends, a boyfriend, and typical worries someone my age should have.

Granted, I’m still sleeping with my professor and a dragon prince, while trying to save all fairies, fair folk, and Faerie, but also help my friends and women in an extremely sexist society that treats them like property and fight the corruption of the councils. That should be enough to keep a woman busy for the rest of her life.

It should have been… Except there’s a serious problem the dragons are facing, and they need my help. The lives of millions are at stake, so as much as I want to only focus on my people and my problems, they might have to wait a little bit longer.
This will definitely end with more threats against me.

Artemis University is an ongoing hot burning reverse harem, university-age paranormal academy series with darker elements, strong language, violence, and a heroine who follows her own moral compass of what is right… And who she ends up giving her heart to.

Excerpt All The Lies by Rina Kent

“Why do you hate me so much?” If you do, why the hell are you engaged to me?⁣

“Might have to do with how much of a bitch you are.”⁣

“Oh, I’m sorry.” I smile. “Did I steal your title, asshole?”⁣

He pauses, head tilting to the side. “What did you just call me?”⁣

“A-S-S-H-O-L-E.” I continue smiling, taunting him. “Do you want me to spell it for you again—”⁣

My words cut off when he’s at my face, kneeling on the bed in front of me. His hand wraps around my throat like a shackle. He’s not squeezing, but the firm grip is enough to restrict my air supply and my thoughts.⁣
A frightening chill forms goose bumps along my skin as I stare at his darkened, merciless eyes.⁣

The sense of bravery I gained a few seconds ago evaporates into thin air. My shoulder blades snap together as if telling me I should be scared.⁣

This is a scary person.⁣

He’s fucking terrifying.⁣

The need to run away from him hits me again, clawing under my skin and pumping in my blood.⁣

“You seem to be taking your amnesia game way too seriously, so let me remind you of how it goes.” His thumb rubs my jaw like a lover’s caress when in fact it’s a Grim Reaper’s kiss.⁣

It’s cold.⁣

Everything about him is freezing.⁣

My pulse roars in my ears like a distant thunderstorm.⁣

He’s invading my space like a natural disaster, impossible to stop or prevent.⁣

Still, I manage to choke words out. “You think this is a game? What type of person pretends to have lost their memories?”⁣

“The type who doesn’t want people to know what they’ve done.”⁣

“What I’ve done?”⁣

“Shhh. Don’t talk.” He presses his thumb to my lips, and I can’t help the pulses taking flight under my skin. “When I speak, you listen.”⁣

Phoenix Burning (Phoenix Series, Book 2) by Melody Anne

Phoenix Light has come to terms with the truth that the world isn’t what she’d always believed it to be. There weren’t such simple terms as good and bad, dark and light, heaven and hell. But what did that mean for all of mankind? What did that mean for her group of survivors?

Phoenix has fallen in love with a man, who’s not really a man. Yes, he breathes, his heart beats, and his skin is warm to the touch. But light shoots from his hands, and a bullet can’t touch him. What does that mean? Is she not only fighting for her survival, but fighting against a force she has no chance of beating? Is there truly evil in the world that wants to destroy them all?

Phoenix, Sadie, John, Jayden, and Cassidy will have to step up and fight the enemy, along with their friends and family. They won’t continue to hide in the recesses of the earth. They’ll free their neighbors, and take back their country. It just won’t be the battle Phoenix had once thought it was going to be.

They’ll leave the cave that’s been home to them for over three years, and they’ll pray to not be thrust into everlasting darkness. Because now they aren’t just fighting men and women who’ve invaded their land, but their battling true evil with a leader willing to do whatever it takes to bring them back to the dark ages.

This is a story of love, laughter, suspense and the truest form of friendship. This is a story of survival and hope. Will they find themselves as they save their neighbors? Or will they face loss too great to handle?

** This was previously released in 2012 as Midnight Moon; Rise of the Dark Angel. Significant changes were made in deleting and adding material and changing the storyline. **

Dangerous Betrayals by L.P. Dover (An Armed & Dangerous/Circle of Justice Crossover Novel)

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L.P. Dover comes the crossover fans having been waiting for! Beloved characters from her Armed & Dangerous and Circle of Justice novels come together in this tantalizing new series!

A stranger waiting in the dark.

A ritualistic attack.

A wrongful arrest.

After surviving an attempt on her life, Kennedy moved to Vermont in hopes of putting the nightmare behind her. The police assured her the assailant was behind bars. They were dead wrong. The truth revealed itself in a rash of grisly murders. Each victim bore a striking resemblance to Kennedy. Each killed in the same fashion as her attack.

Launching a full-fledged manhunt, the police called me in. My name is Reed Chandler, and I’m an expert on tracking the behavior of the deranged. It doesn’t take long for me to realize it all traces back to Kennedy. The killings are carving a path across the country, leading straight to her.

Determined to keep her safe, I refuse to leave her side. Am I getting too close? Losing myself in the alluring charms of the school teacher? I don’t care. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. Let the killer come. The tables have turned, I know his plan.

What he doesn’t know is that I’m a trained killer… and now I’m on the hunt.

Excerpt Dangerous Betrayals by L.P. Dover

Her eyes blazed with anger. “Why didn’t John tell me this could be done?”
“Because he doesn’t know,” I answered. “Not many people do. We use special government technology. With only a handful of people knowing how to access the satellites. Even so, we can’t figure out every single murder case. There’s just not enough time in the world. It’s important we keep this knowledge contained otherwise it could be used against us.”
She scoffed. “So what you’re saying is that in order to get the special treatment, I have to be someone high up? Like the president or someone with a butt ton of money?” Her hand shook and I could see the rage behind those hazel eyes of hers.
All in all, she was right, but I couldn’t tell her that. But mostly it was because of the safety issues of this type of technology getting into the wrong hands. “That’s not what I’m saying, Kennedy,” I said, hoping to deflect her anger and not sounding like I’m appeasing her. “I’m sorry this happened to you, but I’m here to help. Even looking at the satellites doesn’t guarantee we’ll find the killer. It takes a lot of calculated guesses and that’s where I come in. I go with my gut.”
She blew out a frustrated breath and her eyes softened. “I’m sorry. I wish you knew how hard this was for me.” I understood what she was going through as I’d seen it time and time again. Being a victim, and trying hard not to be one is exhausting and I could see it was taking its toll on her.
I placed a hand over hers, and something about it felt right. “We’re going to find that piece of shit, I promise. Once my package gets delivered today, I’ll set up the cameras around your property so we can keep an eye on everything while we’re gone. And as soon as we get to Wyoming, I’ll use every single resource I have to figure this all out.”
Standing up straighter, she lifted her chin and nodded. “Good. And I want to be right there to help you.”
She looked at me expectantly and I narrowed my gaze, wondering what she had on her mind. I already knew it was something she wanted to keep from John. Didn’t know if that was a good or bad thing, but I had a feeling it was the latter. “Yeah, about that. What do you want exactly?” I asked.
Her eyes darkened. “I’m not waiting for that psycho to hunt me down again. I want you to teach me how to kill. That way, the next time I see him, he’ll be on the receiving end and not the other way around.” She looked down at the river, her body tense. “I want to look him in the eyes when I kill him. You’re the only one who can help me get away with it.”
Yep, it was definitely the latter. I stared at her in disbelief, but also in complete awe. I could get into some serious trouble for helping her. Was it good to give in to revenge? No, but in her case, I’d be the same way if someone killed my mother. She deserved to get her revenge and the killer deserved everything she could dish out and then some.
If it was anyone but Kennedy, I wouldn’t do it. But for her, it would mean closure — I could see that now.
The decision was made.

Spark of Fire (The Academy of Elements Book 1) by Kat Adams

I draw kickass superheroes. I never thought I was one.

To me, the stories that unfolded on the pages of my webcomic have always been way more awesome than real life—right up until the day an evil bad Assassin’s Creed cosplay dude showed up and tried to erase my existence.

I fought back—and caught on fire. Like, legit fire that turned purple and not only scared off the creepy evil bad, but brought a hot, OMG hawt fire elemental to my door to whisk me off to some mysterious academy. Did I mention hot? Did I mention he brought hawt friends?

Did I mention a mysterious academy?

Turns out I’m an elemental with the power to control elements with my mind, and there’s an Academy of Elements that can teach me how to hone my craft. Crazy, right? Even crazier, a secret academy of elemental wizards known as the Council handpicked me to save our kind from some seriously dark sorcerers determined to destroy our world. No pressure.

Excerpt Sweet Temptation by Cora Reilly

Acting on impulse, I leaned forward and brushed my lips across his then darted my tongue out, tasting the liquor clinging to his mouth. Smoky and sweet.

Cassio stiffened, but the look on his face became even more intense than before. “What was that?” His voice was a low rasp that I could feel everywhere.

“A kiss?” I didn’t have much experience, but I doubted anyone could mess up a simple kiss.

“Are you trying to influence me with your body?”

My eyes grew wide. “No. I could smell the liquor on your breath, and I was curious how it tastes.”

Cassio chuckled. “You are a strange girl.” His mouth twisted. “Woman.”

He looked down at the dog in my arms. It was snuggled against me peacefully. Without a word, Cassio turned around and returned to his glass of whisky on the table. I stepped inside and closed the door. Stroking the dog, I followed my husband.

“What’s its name?”

“Loulou,” Cassio said, a strange note to his voice. I stopped beside him.

“Can I have a sip of your whisky?”

Cassio’s eyes bored into me. “You’ve never had whisky before?”

“No. My father didn’t allow me to drink alcohol. I had my first glass at our wedding.”

“Many firsts for one day.” A small shiver passed down my spine at the contemplative growl. “You aren’t old enough for hard liquor.”

My lips parted in indignation. Was he serious?

He downed the remains of his drink, and before I could say something snarky, he cupped the back of my head and pressed his lips to mine. Gently at first, his eyes searching mine. I grasped his bicep and stood on my tiptoes—his permission. Then he really kissed me, his tongue stroking mine, discovering my mouth. The taste of whisky swirled in my mouth, intoxicating—not as much as the kiss though. God, his kiss set me aflame.
