The Billionaire’s Proposal (Book 2) (Erotic Romance)

by Melody Sanders

Vicki stood in the center of her apartment, trembling slightly and as nervously excited as she could ever remember being. The stunned Pavel, seldom lost for words but now simply dumbstruck by Vicki’s lurid suggestion, was still kneeling by the armchair, a position he had only taken as a gesture of respect to gain Vicki’s trust. It would be merely the first such gesture; the others would take them both into entirely new, and deliciously intoxicating territory.

“Do you think you can do that?” asked Vicki, her voice catching slightly with the raw exhilaration of taking control and directing her own future.

Charlie and Pearl

by Tammy Robinson

Charlie is slightly chubby and the occasional reader of women’s lifestyle magazines, not that he’d ever admit that down at the pub to the guys. Lover of an occasional takeaway and a more frequent beer, he lives with his mum in the same small coastal town where he was born and works in the local bookshop, with a boss who thinks the country is at war and wears a pot on
his head for a helmet.

Pearl has fled to her grandmother’s beach house for some time out and to heal after the end of a relationship left her with a life altering revelation.

Their paths collide and Charlie falls instantly in love, although Pearl takes some convincing. She has a secret; one she knows may prevent them from living their happy ever after. 

Charlie and Pearl is a quirky love story. It’s a story of unconventional love; of finding that spare part you never knew you were missing, and of what happens when love is simply not enough.

“This is an incredible story. As long as you don’t mind getting kicked in the gut, shedding a few tears, and having your heart squeezed at the pain the characters go through, you’ll love this book. It’s simple, yet elegant. Painful, yet heartwarming. It is put simply, an incredible story told well.”

After putting her life on the line to protect classified intelligence, military psychologist Mia Kensington is on a cross-country road trip from hell with an intrusive save-the-day hero. Uninterested in his white knight act, she’d rather take her chances without the ruggedly handsome, cold-blooded operative who boasts an alpha complex and too many guns.

Colby Winters, an elite member of The Titan Group, has a single objective on his black ops mission: recover a document important to national security. It was supposed to be an easy in-and-out operation. But now, by any means necessary becomes a survival mantra when he faces off with a stunning woman he can’t leave behind.

When Titan’s safe houses are compromised, Colby stashes Mia at his home, exposing his secretâ??he’s the adoptive father of an orphaned baby girl. Too soon, danger arrives and Mia lands in the hands of a sadistic cartel king with a taste for torture. As hours bleed into fear-drenched days, Colby races across the globe and through a firestorm of bullets to save the woman he can’t live without.


Nicola is an injured CIA agent on the run from a failed undercover operation. Her escape plan shatters when she slams into the man who buried her a decade ago. Cash Garrison. Her first and only love. Now, sexier than her best memory and cradling a sniper’s rifle, he has questions she can’t answer. Why was she alive? And armed?

Cash is an elite member of a black ops organization, The Titan Group. He thought Nicola died his senior year of college and swore off love to focus on a decade of military missions. But when she shows up behind enemy lines, bleeding out and wielding a weapon, his heart and mind are unsure how to proceed.

Titan and the CIA join forces to uncover a mole hidden in a network of international terrorists and homegrown mobsters, teaming Cash and Nicola again. They fight old wounds and re-ignite sparks while closing in on a double agent. When disaster strikes, Nicola’s hidden past makes her the hunted target and Cash’s best kill shot may not be enough to save them.


Jared Westin knows his reputation and likes it. He gets the job done. No emotion. No baggage. That’s why his elite ops company, The Titan Group, is better than the best. They complete projects classified as mission impossible.

And then, in walks a woman as tough as she is sexy. His counterpart in every way, should he choose to admit it.

Ousted undercover ATF agent Lilly Chase only answers to “Sugar.” Jared is the only man who can see past her leather-and-lipstick demeanor, and that revelation is terrifying. She was fired for helping Titan on a questionable arrest she should’ve ignored, then partnered with Jared’s rival on an assignment in Afghanistan.

Distance and danger do nothing to change her feelings. When she’s left on the side of a mountain to die, an unexpected ally comes forward, and might open her heart.

Saving Sugar isn’t a normal rescue operation. It pits Titan against its rival, Jared against his nemesis. Chasing Sugar’s heart isn’t a simple task, either. She fights him, fights them, always ready to run. When she becomes a pawn in a game of collateral damage, Jared must risk his life to save herâ??the woman whose bravado and surprising sweetness has given him the one thing he never had. Love.


Brock Gamble’s epic fall from the Titan Group labeled him a traitor, then his wife walks out the door. Can the couple survive if the only chance of redemption is a fall further into a world of guns and kidnappings?

Victor Standish, son of the Angel of Death, returns to find only his great love, Alice, still alive. The others he loved are gone. When they needed him, he was not there.

His rage against the darkness has begun. His friends will be saved. Though his efforts endanger all reality, Victor fights on. The End of All Things billows into being.

Foes from past and present, even the future encircle Victor and Alice. From the last day of Troy to the mysterious Off-Reality Betting Parlor to the dreaded Citadel of Tyme herself, the battle rages across the face of existence.

The hooded figure of Destiny watches from the sidelines. And the most dreaded, loathsome being in the memory of Man, SHE WHO BREEDS, slithers to end all hope for the one she hates most:

The THREE SPIRIT KNIGHT â?¦ the latest name for the French Quarter gypsy, Victor Standish.

Excerpt from 1964: Chasing A Dream

Bobby stepped out of the bathroom, hurling me out my day-dreams. I watched him dress in his white, short-sleeved shirt and tan pants. I still wondered what there was about him that had attracted me. He was quite ordinary looking, much too thin, and certainly not handsome. He turned and pierced me with his blue eyes. Then I knew. The attraction had started with his scorching eye contact and how he could hold me with his gaze. I turned away. He couldn’t hold me now, and he knew that. At breakfast he confronted me.

“Did you know I made love to you last night?” His granite-cold eyes glowered. “Too bad you couldn’t have been there.”

I fumbled with my eggs. “I couldn’t help it. I’m feeling numb.”

“Were you numb when he kissed you yesterday, sitting on that park bench?” He frowned his furious eyes at me.

“Drop it.” I glared at him, stabbing my eggs.

He glared back at me. “I can’t drop it. Are we over?”

My trembling hands folded around the thick, coffee cup. “I don’t know, maybe.”

“You don’t know, maybe,” he mocked, furiously. “What am I supposed to derive from that? You left him, and you’re here with me. Now, it’s maybe? Maybe what? Maybe you care? Maybe you’ll drop me? What in hell is maybe?”

“Maybe I’ll be back. Maybe I won’t,” I hissed. “Jesus, Bobby, leave me alone. I need space and time to think. Joe understands that, why can’t you?”

“Is that what you told him?”

“Yes.” I nodded.

Hunching his shoulders, he sighed. “Then I’ll have to accept your decision. I just wish to hell you’d hurry up and make it.”

He lit a Camel and held his lighter toward my cigarette. I accepted his light and dragged the smoke deep into my lungs.The questions stopped, and we had a peaceful journey to Memphis. It was like old times as he sang along with the car radio, winking at me occasionally. It was a beautiful day, and I relaxed enough to take a nap.

— Description in english —

Human civilization is on a dangerous edge. One more step and we may reach a point of no return where everything could fall into the abyss. The fault is the unlimited desire for enrichment. The Earth’s resources are being barbarously used: forests are being destroyed, oil extraction is increasing, water bodies are being polluted, our small planet is filling up with trash, and the atmosphere around us is blackening with the soot of smoking pipes. Less and less space is left on the Earth for animals and birds.

What will the future look like? Who will protect the Earth from total destruction? Who are they? How soon can we meet them?

Soon! Very soon! Messengers from another world are already among us. And this is not fiction, this is reality!

On our planet, alongside us, lives another civilization. They are descendants of the Atlanteans, who live in an underwater country named Psatlan. It is their ultrafast submarines and mysterious airships which people sometimes see. They appear every time that human activities could destroy the Earth. This fantasy novel is about them and those who help to save our planet.

Beautiful Mess

by Jennifer Preston

Ambria Donnelly thought she had everything all figured out. A senior in high school, she knows exactly what she wants out of life and where she is going. After her last boyfriend broke her heart, Bri swore off boys and dating, instead focusing on school, and dance, and getting into Stanford like she’d always dreamed. Until a chance meeting at the beach pushes her resolve, and threatens to unravel all her carefully made plans.

Cole Marra had never really thought much about the future. He’d always had his dad, or his friends, there to make those kinds of decisions for him. He isn’t even sure who he is, let alone what he wants. Until the day Bri walks into his life and changes everything. Suddenly his future, which was uncertain at best, begins to take shape as he finally decides what he wants out of life. And now that he’s found it, he won’t let her go.

But when Bri finds out that Cole isn’t exactly who she thought he was, everything between them falls apart. Now, Cole has to decide how hard he’s willing to fight for what he wants. Bri has to decide if she’s willing to open herself up and risk her heart again. They both must work to overcome their own issues, and decide if it’s worth taking a chance on love.

Or, will the walls and defenses keeping them apart be too much to overcome?
