Sins or Secrets by Khardine Gray

The residue of my sins and secrets arise demanding repayment.

And they might destroy us all over again.

Sins or Secrets, an all-new standalone second-chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Khardine Gray, is coming March 4th and we have the smoking hot cover!

Synopsis

There’s a lot to know about me.

I could start with my sins or my secrets.

But they are one and the same: I’m a liar.

Ten years ago, I left Logan.

My lies destroyed us.

But… what he didn’t know was I lied because I had to.

It was the only way to protect him from my father’s cruel hand.

That last goodbye was supposed to be forever.

I left town and never expected to see him again.

Then Aunt Lily died, and I returned home.

Not knowing her will would open Pandora’s box.

Her will threw me right back in Logan’s path, and back in his bed.

But he’s not the boy I left behind.

He’s the irresistible, tempting ex-marine women put on their wish list.

And our attraction is incinerating.

All consuming.

Undeniable.

And, unlike the past, there’s no one standing in our way.

There’s nothing to stop us.

Except me.

The residue of my sins and secrets arise demanding repayment.

And they might destroy us all over again.

Twisted Cravings by Cora Reilly

“What they crave the most comes with a brutal price.”

Twisted Cravings, an all-new dark romance standalone in the Camorra Chronicles from USA Today bestselling author Cora Reilly, is coming March 16th and we have the stunning cover!

Synopsis

As the youngest brother of the notorious Falcone clan, Adamo grew up surrounded by blood and violence. Drugs soon became his way of coping.

Becoming a Made Man like his brothers was his destiny but never his passion. When he becomes the organizer of his family’s successful illegal street races and one of their thrill-seeking drivers, he finally asserts his own path in the harsh mafia world.

His purpose isn’t the only thing Adamo discovers on the fuel-soaked roads he calls home…

Dinara Mikhailov is one of the few female race drivers and hard to ignore. Not only because of her flaming red hair and ruthless driving style, but also because the Bratva princess is allowed to drive in enemy territory.

Soon Adamo and she find themselves entangled in a passionate game that goes beyond the race track. Yet, both haunted by events of the past, their dark cravings put everything on the line.

As what they crave the most comes with a brutal price.

Eye Candy by Jiffy Kate
Release Date: February 16, 2021

**BLURB**


Vali Erickson is the classic middle child—misunderstood, underestimated, and overlooked. He’s fine with it. Really. The overlooked part is actually serving him well during this phase of life.

He’s in Green Valley in an effort to fly under the radar and regroup after a life-altering blow to his heart and ego. The last thing he’s looking for is a woman to warm his bed until one throws him to the mat and rocks his world.

Margaret O’Neal is an only child who has lead a sheltered life. She’s used to being a wallflower. Her ability to blend into the background is what allows her to maintain her anonymity as a gossip columnist for the Green Valley Ledger.

Since the Ericksons moved to town, she’s never felt more inspired, especially with the newest addition. Vali Erickson is the definition of eye candy—devastatingly handsome with muscles for days—giving her plenty to report about.

The more Maggie observes, the more she finds herself wanting things she’s only read about in romance novels.

Admiring Vali from afar is good enough for her until their paths cross and she finds herself trying to stay afloat in uncharted territory—no labels, no promises, and WAY out of her comfort zone.

Will this arrangement be what finally breaks her out of her shell, or will her heart be a casualty of the Viking Invasion?

‘Eye Candy’ is a full-length contemporary romance, and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Fighting For Love series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Librarian Maxine Peters lives her life behind the scenes. By day, she’s
a buttoned-up cataloguing whiz in the basement of the Green Valley

are revealed that make love hard and hatred even harder. Jonathan
quickly learns fighting his own demons will take more than one elite

a way to make it work? Or will it be game over for this player versus

Synopsis

 

 

Hate, at first sight, couldn’t possibly exist, right?

That’s what Grace Buchanan thought before her useless car stranded her on the side of a deserted road just inside the Green Valley city limits.

When Tucker Haywood—tall and handsome and full of southern charm— shows up to help, her reaction to him is the strongest thing she’s ever felt in her life, and it makes no freaking sense.

It doesn’t make much sense to Tucker either. Not why she hates him, or why he finds her so intriguing. He knows well enough that Grace is moving to Green Valley for a fresh start, not to distract him when he’s got no room for something like her in his life.

The complications between them are endless, but that doesn’t stop her definitely not love-at-first-sight feelings from changing into something else entirely.

Grace and Tucker are about to learn the hard way that in Green Valley, hating someone has never tasted so sweet.

Synopsis

 

 

Living with her mother seemed like a good idea at the time. But Elliott Donovan’s living arrangements are not working for her anymore. Desperate to get back on her financial feet after a divorce and out from under her mother’s thumb, Elliott takes a job in the child care center at Weight Expectations, a local gym.

It has everything she needs – family-friendly hours, more pay than she expected, and a super cute trainer who just happens to have part of his house for rent.

Abel DiSoto was living the good life until his wife walked out taking half of the family income with her. The blow to his ego was bad enough, but after a fire at the gym scattered Abel’s clients, and consequently his commissions, he’s stuck figuring out how to make ends meet, too. Renting out the master suite of his house to his new co-worker seems like an easy solution. They’re both mature adults, they both have eight-year-old daughters, and their work schedules coordinate so they can lend each other a helping hand to ease the burden of single parenthood.

The only downside? Living like a blended family when you’re not actually a family can present some challenges.

Welcome back to Weight Expectations, where the unexpected is likely to happen.

5- It takes a Village to Raise a Child, Stars!

 

This was a wonderfully written contemporary romance about two single parents who are from totally different backgrounds. They would not have met under normal circumstances but as “fate” would have it, they are introduced to one another by a co-worker and come to a decision that they might be able to help one another out.

These characters Able (Beast) and Elliott (Cutie) are doing their best to raise their daughters while trying to deal with all the challenges that come with being a single parent.

Elliott needs a new place to stay, and Able needs a roommate to help with his mortgage since he lost a lot of his clients because of a fire.
What makes this decision even sweeter is that both their daughters go to the same school, are the same age, and are in the same class.

Able thought that when Elliott moved in that they simply would be roommates and cross paths every once in a while. It never occurred to him that their lives would quickly be intertwined because they soon both realized they needed one another because parenting is hard.

What started out as Able and Elliott loving and respecting each other as friends, gradually turns into them falling in love with one another.

This book was a beautiful story to read not only for the slow-burn romance but because the author did a wonderful job of showing the complexity of navigating the situations of a blended family.

 

Kudos M.E. Carter!

Wonderful story!
Wonderful characters!
