ON ANY GIVEN SUNDAE by USA Today Bestselling Author Marilyn Brant — A shy dessert cookbook writer reconnects with her longtime crush–an ex-football star turned businessman–when they run an ice cream shop together.
FINDING THE RIGHT GIRL by NY Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Violet Duke — Tessa Daniels has no idea why she told her friend’s brother she was some sort of fling expert. She’s never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn’t know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian Sullivan. The man’s got the body of a football god straight off a billboard, as many skeletons in the closet as she does, and worst of all, he’s got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself hope for years ago. A happily-ever-after.
SWEET TO YOU by iTunes & Barnes and Noble Bestselling Author Jessie Evans — Where there’s smoke, there’s fire… When s’mores and whiskey shots lead to skinny-dipping at a singles’ camping retreat, Maddie Whitehouse knows she won’t be able to resist another steamy encounter with the sexy firefighter her childhood friend, Jamison, has become…even if he is off limits.

UNAFRAID by USA Today Bestselling Author Melody Grace — Brittany Ray’s learned the hard way that some dreams aren’t meant for girls like her. Handsome, charming Hunter Covington is one of those dreams. Years ago, they shared one life-changing night together, but Brit walked away before he could break her heart. Now Hunter’s back in Beachwood Bay, their reckless passion can’t be ignored. But will dark secrets tear apart their new beginning?

LOVE LOVE by Amazon Bestselling Author Beth Michele — Gabrielle Willis is smart. She’s funny. And oh yes, she’s a bit klutzy.  But she’s also running.  When she meets Brad Dixon, the sweet guy with the crooked smile, can he make her see that the very thing she is trying to run from is the very thing that just may push her to see the light?

GETTING OUT OF HAND, the brand new novel by Samhain Bestselling Author Erin Nicholas — Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the media and piss off the Vice President of the United States all before breakfast. But he’s not sure he can get through his high school class reunion.  Then he meets the new girl in town.  Adrianne Scott loves the sleepy little town of Sapphire Falls–the perfect place to open her candy shop and live a quiet, drama-free life. Until Mason Riley bids four hundred dollars just to dance with her.
TEMPTING LOVE by Amazon Bestselling Author Melanie Shawn — Haley Sloan knows exactly what she wants out of life. With her designer lingerie business booming, her career is moving forward, but her heart is still in the same place it had been for four long years…hopelessly in love with the former wild boy turned responsible adoring father, Eddie Thomas. Will this self-sacrificing single father finally realize that accepting his love for Haley may be just what his little girl needs to get the family they both deserve?

NOT OVER YOU by NY Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Marquita Valentine — Summer Holland is set on one thing–convincing her childhood sweetheart *and* local preacher’s son, Gabriel Edwards, to marry her so she can get back the daughter she gave up for adoption. She’s always been able to count on him rescuing her when she needed it most, but this time is different… there’s a new woman in Gabriel’s life. Only, Summer’s not going to let that get in her way.
