Miles Warren, Lord Garrison, comes from a family of libertines, and he’s the worst of them allâ??or so society believes. When Miles helps a friend to run away with an heiress, it’s an entertaining way to revenge himself on one of the gossips who slandered him.

Except that he drives off with the wrong woman . . . and as if that wasn’t scandalous enough, he can’t resist stealing a kiss.

Love Is Everything (Maya & Hudson)

by Abby Brooks

Hudson Knox is hot as hell and has a reputation that comes with a WARNING label. I should be scared of getting caught in his cross-fire, but I am tired of being the good girl. The shoulds and cants that rule my life need an exit strategy. When Hudson offers me a no-strings attached night of fun, I find the escape I’ve been dreaming about. But what should be a one-night stand is quickly becoming a full-on relationshipâ??with all the feels. Even the scary ones. Especially the scary ones. The ones that could leave me with a broken heart. Because Hudson is a bad boy at his core and I am a good girl at mine.

I think together we might implode.

With such loyal characters, friendship, and badassery… just don’t wait to start reading these. So just, just wow.”

Low Carb: The Beginner’s Guide For Low Carb Diet: 100 Low Carb Dessert Recipes

by Clarence Wright


Losing Weight Effortlessly on Low Carb

Some people lose weight fantastically well on low carb, immediately on the first try. Perhaps the weight even stays off forever.

For others it can be a more of a challenge. Do you want to lose more weight or lose weight faster? There are many things you can do to improve your chances.

A Low-Carb Diet for Beginners

Do you want effortless weight loss? Or type 2 diabetes reversal and other health benefits? Then a low-carb diet could be right for you.

You can eat all you need to feel satisfied – there’s no calorie counting required, ever. No products. No pills. No surgery. Just real food.

A low-carb diet restricts sugary foods, and starches like pasta or bread. Instead you’ll eat delicious real foods, including protein, natural fats and vegetables.

Low-carb diets just work, they’ve been used for over 150 years and there are tons of success stories. Dozens of scientific studies prove that compared to other diets, low carb is more effective.

The basics

Eat: Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables growing above ground and natural fats (like butter).

Avoid: Sugar and starchy foods (like bread, pasta, rice, beans and potatoes).

Skaldeman’s fish soup

Eat when you’re hungry, until you’re satisfied. It’s that simple.

You do not need to count calories or weigh your food. And just forget about industrially produced low-fat products.

There are solid scientific reasons why low-carb diets works. When you avoid sugar and starches your blood sugar stabilizes and the levels of insulin, the fat-storing hormone, drop. This increases fat burning and makes you feel more satiated.

This guide contains everything you need – what to eat, what to avoid, and exactly how to do it.

by Danny Iny

Leave Your Soul-Sucking Job Once and for All!

But be smart about it. We’ll show you how.

A few years back, a disgruntled flight attendant got on the plane’s public address system, shouted some profanities, and exclaimed “I Quit!” He then grabbed 2 beers from the beverage cart, deployed the emergency evacuation slide, and dramatically exited the plane in style.

While it likely felt good in the moment and made a splash on social media, he faced a host of negative consequences, including arrest and a $10,000 fine.

This was certainly a memorable way to quit, but if you’re looking for a more fulfilling career and life, it’s not the right way to do it.

This third book in Mirasee’s Business Reimagined series will teach you how to intelligently get out of a job you hate (or just don’t love) and transition smoothly into a life with more freedom, money, and fulfillment.

With a simple-but-powerful five-step plan and a collection of real-life stories of people who sought their dream jobs by leaving unsatisfying careers, How To Quit Your Job provides everything you need to prepare for your grand exit.

We’ll get you out of the rut you’re in, help you focus on what you want to do, and lead you right up to quitting day. From there, you’ll be ready to fly.

Halfway through her first year on the job, Melissa Montclair decides the best part of teaching is winter break.

And the best part of break is the Perfect Ten she meets in a bar on New Year’s Eve. Why not celebrate a semester under her belt with a Perfect Ten in her pants? The one night affair is all she hoped for, until she walks into school a week later and sees Mr. Ten is Student Twenty-nine on her roll call.

She should be mortifiedâ??and she isâ??but that doesn’t stop her from banging him again. And again.

And again.

So much for job security.

Posing as an exchange student at Hamilton High is finally the assignment Officer Spence Vega has been hoping for. Now he has a shot at getting to the bottom of the town’s recent molly epidemic. There’s only a couple of problems: first, history is taught by the curvy bombshell he banged on New Year’s. Second, his growing suspicion is that she’s the dealer he’s looking for.

The job was supposed to be an easy in-and-out, not the teacher.

If only they could stop getting under the covers, staying undercover would be so much easier.

BONUS! This edition now includes a preview of my next book, “Topped,” coming to a Kindle near you on May 4th.
