Romancing His Rival by Poppy St. James

Two enemies. One wedding.

The plan was simple . . . until they started to fall for each other.

Noah and Olivia are total opposites. She’s buttoned up and proper, focused entirely on her career, and has no time for messy, inconvenient feelings. He’s a big-hearted bachelor who loves pushing her buttons and has always secretly pined for the feisty heroine. The fact that she’s vowed to never fall for him? Doesn’t deter him in the slightest.

A NYC playboy turned business mogul has ninety days to win over the woman he’s always desired in order to save his father’s company. One tiny problem: she hates his guts.

Note: This book was previously published under an alternate pseudonym.

Own Her (The Warriors of Hades #3) by Jenika Snow

Mekenna’s life started off on the wrong foot as soon as she was born.

As the daughter of a servant, her path was already carved out. And because she was only half human, she was looked down upon due to her bi-species genetics.

But Mekenna kept her strength, not letting the awful hand she was dealt control or shape who she was.

Vicktor, Savastian, and Fillip were brothers from the planet of Hades, and known as fierce male alien warriors. Their species was known for their brutal and violent nature. They fought to survive, victorious in all they challenged.

And now it was time for them to find a female to share not only their life with, but also their bed.

The first time they saw Mekenna, they knew instantly she was the one.

They’d move heaven and hell to claim her. They’d level anything and anyone who thought to hurt her. And they’d make her see that no matter what, she’d be the most important thing in their world.

They just had to convince her of that.

*If you’re looking for straight-up sci-fi sm*t, where one woman gets to keep 3 sexy alpha aliens all to herself, look no further! *

Mate Her (The Warriors of Hades #2) by Jenika Snow

Minka was a human, a dying species that was both weaker and more vulnerable than any other being in the galaxy. Because of this, humans were hunted down and taken to the intergalactic auctions to be sold.

Brawn, Thorque, and Lukin were warrior brothers from the planet Hades. Because their need for finding a female and procreating with her had come upon them, they were in search of one to share.

But when they were forced to land on a planet infested with dangerous beasts, the last thing they thought they’d find was their human mate.

When demon-looking warriors rescued Minka from certain death, she knew there would be a price to pay. She just didn’t know that price was to mate all three of them, or to be the mother of their alien babies.

*If you’re looking for straight-up sci-fi sm*t, where one human woman gets to keep 3 sexy alpha aliens all to herself, look no further! *

READER NOTE: This story was previously published under the same title in 2014. It has since been recovered, reedited, and minor plot points tweaked throughout. If you read this book before, nothing significant has changed.

Claim Her (The Warriors of Hades #1) by Jenika Snow

Rylan, Zarek, and Soran came from a planet of fire and stone.

One known as hell itself.

They were powerful warriors, feared by all in their galaxy, and born and trained to be killers.

But the time had come for them to settle down. To take a mate. Grow a family.

Share a woman between the three of them.

With no females on their planet, they must purchase one at the intergalactic auction—not something they were proud of, but necessary, nonetheless.

And once they had her, they’d be bound forever, dedicated only to her, and would protect her with their lives.

Tessa was a human—an almost extinct race.

After she was captured by slave traders, she was thrust upon an open market. A savage and barbaric auction.

And when she was purchased it wasn’t by just one buyer… but three.

She certainly isn’t on Earth anymore, not when she’s now claimed by three giants with fire-colored skin, eyes as black as the galaxy surrounding her, and massive onyx-tipped wings.

Can Tessa accept her fate and the fact that the three alien males are intent on not only making her theirs… but ensuring she gets pregnant with their babies?

*If you’re looking for straight-up sci-fi sm*t, where one human woman gets to keep 3 sexy alpha aliens all to herself, look no further! *

WRONG FOR ME by Meagan Brandy

They say to keep your enemies close, but they never had to deal with the likes of Alec Daniels, the broody bad boy next door who loved to make my life a living nightmare…up until the day he disappeared.
See, Alec was a thief.
He stole my happy.
My sanity.
My first kiss.
I told myself I was glad the day he went away, and I’m reminded of why not five minutes after his sudden and unexpected return.
Now he stands before me with a heavy glare and hard body.
But those greedy green eyes, they’re darker than I remember, and brimming with a secret…
A secret I didn’t discover until it was far too late.
Because this time, he didn’t steal a simple kiss.
This time… Alec Daniels stole my all.
*Wrong for Me is a full-length standalone with no cliffhanger and an HEA. Previously titled The Wrong Blaze, this is the same epic love story with a fresh new look and title!

This is one of the books I have kept for me to read when I couldn’t find anything to catch my eye. I knew I would enjoy it so this was my main reason to delay.

Of course I loved it. Meagan Brandy writes books I love and enjoy with characters so powerful that resonates to me. Her heroes love so deeply that you can’t help but share their emotions. You feel deep in your bones the desperation of a man that can’t leave with the love of his life.

This book was previously known as The Wrong Blaze so only the name and the cover has changed.

Wrong For Me is a standalone and will make you fall in love but cut you deep when secrets come out. Typically to Meagan Brandy if you’ve read her before.

Alec Daniels has been in love with Oakley since they were kids, but she had her eyes on his brother. The fact that Alec knew with his whole being that she was meant for him, he waited and watched her every move. Oakley is now grown up and Alec comes back. But he is older too and with more secrets she is ready to face.

There is a scene people might say it’s not for them.. I won’t give spoilers but from my point of view there is no cheating… just circumstances that might seem so.

If you have questions, hit me up a message and I ll reply in detail.

Takedown (A Tapped Out Novella #1.5) by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

I’m not giving up until she’s mine, forever.
Walking away from being a SEAL—and the injury that led to my discharge—didn’t scar me nearly as much as knocking on my estranged baby brother’s door and finding my ex, Abby, on the other side. And naturally, she’s every bit as beautiful as she was when we broke up a couple of years ago. I’d never wanted to let her go, and now that she’s standing in front of me with the wreckage of my former life behind me, I’m ready to fight for my woman.

No matter what it takes.

But Abby is understandably gun-shy, though she claims she’s only platonically living with my brother. Turns out I only have one weekend to prove that I’m the man she needs. Forever.

Good thing I’m up for the job. In every way.

Author’s note: Takedown is book 1.5 in the Tapped Out MMA series and is a novella with a happily ever after ending and no cliffhanger. Previously released by Cari Quinn in the Hot Ink anthology in 2014.

Knockout (Tapped Out Book 4) by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

She’s forbidden to me…and so is he. Too bad I want them both.
MMA fighters are supposed to leave it all in the ring. But I have a secret. Two secrets, actually.

Secret #1: I can’t deny the simmering attraction I feel toward Lily, the sweetly innocent daughter of an overprotective cop who is like a second father to me. And Lily’s friend JC? Freaking A, he’s hot. He also just happens to be renovating the gym I train at and is always walking around shirtless and sweaty.

Secret #2: I love women. I love men just as much. Once I get an unforgettable taste of both Lily and JC, I’m addicted. One night turns into more, and soon I’m ready to walk away from everything just so I don’t have to give up either of them.

Now with all of my secrets coming to a head, the only question left is how much I’m willing to lose.

Author’s note: Lots of boy-on-boy—and boy-on-girl—touching ahead. Knockout is book 4 in the Tapped Out MMA series and is a short novel with a happily ever after ending and no cliffhanger. Previously released by Cari Quinn in the Hunks, Hammers and HEAs anthology in 2015.

On the Ropes (Tapped Out Book 3) by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

I’m willing to die for vengeance. Until she gives me a reason to live…
I’m a rising star in New York City’s underground MMA scene. I’m winning all my matches, and I can have any woman I choose.

Except the one who was lost to me, and now, the one I want but can never allow myself to have.

Carly Anderson is gorgeous and funny and seductive. She isn’t shy about letting me know she’s interested. But she’s far too innocent for me to taint with the sins of my past—and my present.

In the circles I run in, a bullet can take you out at any time. My father and older brother embraced the dark, dangerous world of the mafia that I turned away from, until the person I loved most was caught in the crossfire between our warring families.

I made a choice to avenge her death, fully aware I likely won’t come out alive. I’ve embraced the life I now live. And if it ends me, so be it.

But I never expected Carly would have to pay my debts—and her sister’s.

Author’s note: On The Ropes is a full-length MMA romantic suspense novel with a happily ever after ending and no cliffhanger, though it contains violent material that may be triggering. It was previously published by Cari Quinn in 2015 and has been lightly re-edited.

Not long ago, I was known as “Fox” Knox, king of the fighters in New York City’s underground MMA scene. MMA was my life, until Mia came into it with her bravado and her fists raised, ready to fight me.

Then our clothes came off, and the real fight begun. To build a life out of the ashes of our pasts, together.

We both walked away from MMA, but I know it still calls to her. And now something—or someone—else is as well, and she won’t talk to me about what’s going on. I’m ready to slay any demon she has, except the one she refuses to share.

And that might be the one who takes us down. For good.

This or That by Hope Irving

Sometimes, a kiss can knock you out faster than a blow to the head, rendering you unable to think straight.

When drunken Michael Clayton stole a sloppy kiss in a Parisian club, he didn’t know that this would mean war. War, as in being taught a lesson by a shameless cowboy. War, as in being given a taste of his own medicine. War, as in being left dumbfounded and yearning for more. Blame it on the alcohol, right? Damn, Mike hated the guy for muddling his assumed straight orientation and raising unwelcome questions.

When noble Troy Hunter stole a revenge kiss from a despicable hot playboy, he didn’t know that it would be all but forgotten months later. Landing a gig on a Rio-bound cruise ship, the rising DJ is dazed when Mike strikes back with a vengeance during their second encounter, fueling his appetite for dominance. Blame it on the blazing sun, right? Damn, Troy hates the guy for pushing all of his buttons and rubbing salt in old wounds.

It shouldn’t have happened, but now all bets are off. Their feelings quickly escalate into something that they aren’t willing to label. It’s easier this way, until it isn’t… because life’s no cruise and some experiences are life-altering. Between Troy’s painful past and Mike’s unsettling present, their future together might be short-lived, unless their insane chemistry compels them to push their limits and each other. So, which is it? This or that?

This or That was previously part of a charity anthology entitled Anyone But You; it was originally published in early 2021.
Since then, I’ve added new content, including a bonus epilogue!
Same enemies-to-lovers storyline. Same hot and sweet characters. More focus on certain scenes.
Discover or rediscover Mike and Troy’s story… Most of all, enjoy this new version that will soon be available for preorder!

If you’ve read Omega Artist (A Cocky Hero Club novel), this is your chance to see how it all started for two familiar faces that you only briefly met since This or That is a standalone prequel.

Born into an underworld that has been at war for centuries, Caia is used to feeling different from the humans she was raised among. However, she never expected to feel like an outcast among wolves. Many of the pack treat her with wary suspicion, the Elders keep secrets from her, and her young Alpha, Lucien, is distracting her with a dangerous attraction from her determination to uncover the truth. Why was she removed from the pack all of those years ago? And why has she been returned to them now?

The truth will eventually come out and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war pounds on their door, threatening to destroy the safe, hidden lives of the wolves… and the young woman they protect.

Saving Ren by Lesley Jones

LAUREN

I met him on the most devastating night of my life.

After twenty-four years, I discovered there’s more than one way to break your marriage vows. The life I thought would always be mine was over, and I’m now facing it as a single woman in her forties.

I need to get my life back on track—a job, somewhere to live, and time to get to know this new version of me.

What I don’t need is to be saved by Gabe, the gorgeous, thirty-five-year-old, blue-eyed god I met on a drunken girls’ night out.

Do I?

GABE

The night I met her, something shifted inside me.

Burned and scarred in the past by a short-lived marriage, I like my relationships with women drama free and strictly confined to the bedroom. My focus and priority are on being a single parent to my daughter.

But I’m weary of the one and done life. I want something more, something real, with someone who sees past the way I look, beyond my reputation and doesn’t care about the worth of my family’s business.

What I don’t need is to be fighting to prove to Lauren it’s not me, her ex, or her past she needs saving from…it’s herself.

But I just can’t stay away.

His Everything (Not Just Friends Book 2) by Jenika Snow

Ace Renaldo and Lauren Dunn have known each other since high school, and she’s loved him for longer than she’d ever admit. But the darkness that Ace has in his life has changed the boy she once knew.

He’s harder, damaged. Scarred. And she doesn’t know if any amount of love could penetrate the thick wall he’s built around himself and his heart.

To block the pain in his life, Ace fought. He needed the violence as an outlet for the agony he harbored inside.

Before Lauren had come into his world, Ace knew all too well what being alone felt like. She became everything to him, a light in his darkness. But he feared he’s far too scarred to ever be what she deserved.

But she’s everything to him, his entire world, and he wanted to be a good man for her, to love her in the way he always wanted to.

But will giving in to their mutual feelings ruin their lifelong friendship?

Reader note: This was previously published as His Greatest Pain. Although it has been re-edited and parts of the plot tweaked, the story itself is the same. There may be material that is sensitive to some readers. This is not a safe read.

The Best Mistake (Not Just Friends Book 1) by Jenika Snow

One drunken night, Shoshanna Clarke let her inhibitions go and said yes to Toby Mason.

But it wasn’t just one night of fun because sleeping with the town bad boy ended up completely changing her life.

Everything changed for Toby after the night he shared with Shoshanna. He knew he’d never want anyone else, but fear of scaring her away with his need to keep her close left Toby not saying anything.

She’s a good girl, and he’d been known for being the bad boy. But before Toby could tell Shoshanna he wanted her for more than that one encounter, he was forced to leave town due to a family emergency.

Finding out she was pregnant after a one-night-stand wasn’t ideal, especially not when the father left town and she had no way of contacting him. It wasn’t until Toby’s return that she had to finally face her new reality and tell him everything.

But was Toby ready to be a father? Was he ready to start a family with her? Or was their one night all he wanted?
