This may be my toughest mission yet. None of my SEAL training or my time in the CIA has prepared me for this; a prickly five foot nothing hellcat, Jasmin Smith.

She was MINE. She can fight it all she wanted, but in the end I would have her, every way a man can have his woman. She was a sassy little thing, making me work to bend her to my demands. But I will! I will bend her and tie her to me so tight she would never be able to get free. Only problem is I had to break her first. I had secrets that she needed to know.

For the last two years I have tried to remember the details of my capture and torture. Two years willing my brain to remember. Then he walked into my life, actually he pushed his way in. It was hard not to notice him, tall, bossy, and sexy as hell. He had no respect of personal space, he used every opportunity to get close and breathe me in. He demanded my attention, whispering the filthiest words in my ear and that was all it took to have me yielding to his every demand. One secret after another is revealed, lies are exposed and the missing pieces of the puzzle are finally put together.

by Emma Nichols

One secret baby. One single dad. One shot at redemption.

Tradd

They called me a rock god, but from where I stood, I looked like a huge loser. My career had always meant everything to me. Music was my life, until I met Lauryn. Though I never planned to get serious, I fell hard, and for no good reason, she suddenly disappeared. Somehow, she had become the music in my life and without her, everything was meaningless. Then I spotted Lauryn at a wedding, and three things happened. I sang her our song to show I loved her still, I learned we had a son, and through some terrible divine intervention, I had one more chance to make everything right.

Lauryn

On the rare occasion Tradd shared his thoughts and feelings, it came in the form of a song. Through music, I’d learned he might claim to love me, but he wasn’t ready to settle down. Obviously, I never planned to get pregnant, but when I found out I was, I ran before he could disappoint me. Despite how much I missed him, I’ve done okay being alone, raising our baby, even building a life on the other side of the country. Then when I saw him again, three things happened: we had sex on my desk, I told him about our son, and then I ran again.

Everything happens in threes, but he only needed a second chance to make his first love last forever.

Taking Turns (The Turning Series Book 1)

by JA Huss

I’ve never been afraid of the dark…but that doesn’t mean I wanted to live in it. And maybe everyone wants what they can’t have, but I should’ve thought it over before I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world.

Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes.

Number Two is mostly gentle. But it’s the other side of him I like best. The wild side.

Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg.

It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That’s it. That’s all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden.

I just didn’t expect to like them.

*****

I heard the door open and close and said nothing. And the footsteps coming down the hallway towards the bedroom. I even heard him say, “Hey.” So softly. “You awake?” Like he didn’t want to wake me.

I listened as he stepped into the closet. There was that slick sound a man makes when he pulls his tie through his shirt collar. I heard the unclasping of his watch. The jingle of his belt buckle and the shuffle of his pants as they dropped to the floor.

I even heard his moan as he stood over me. I could feel his shadow from the streetlamp outside like it was heat.

Then the bed creaked, the mattress sank. And his warm, hard body straddled me.
Still, I said nothing.

I just buried my face in the sweet scent of the pillow and closed my eyes, feigning sleep.

“Rochelle,” he whispered, leaning over me. His fingertips gently brushed the hair away from my shoulder. His mouth pressed against my skin. “Did you miss me? God, I’ve missed you. Two weeks is too long. We need to renegotiate.”

He nipped my neck. Kissed it. Licked my ear as he positioned himself to begin.

And I saidâ?¦ nothing.

Even though my name is not Rochelle.
That’s why I’m here. Tied up and gagged inside the closet. Sitting in the dark as three men on the other side of the door argue about where Rochelle went, why I was in her bed, and what they should do next.

I should be scared but I’m not.

I should be screaming, but I won’t.

Because this just feels very, very right.

And the only thing on my mind isâ?¦ what will happen next?

Laws of Engagement for dealing with an Ex:
Rule #1: Don’t give into temptation for a kiss just to see if they taste the same.
Rule #2: No clothing removal. Seriously, don’t take them off.

Twelve years and too many pairs of stilettos later, Shaelyn Lawrence is back where she started: New Orleans. She’s returned only to take care of her grandmother, and after that? She’s out, hopefully long before she sees irresistible Brady Taylor, the boy who stomped all over her heart. But when a family member approaches her for help, there’s only one person she can to turn to…and he’s just as infuriatingly sexy as she remembers. Oh boy.

New Orleans Detective Brady Taylor has his sights on the finish line: getting promoted to sergeant. Nothing, and no one, is getting in his way–except that he didn’t prepare for her return, the girl who left him without a word. Resisting Shaelyn has never been his strong suit, and now all he can think about is stripping her out of her f*ck-me heels and kissing the lipstick off her sassy mouth. And when she asks him for help, he’s forced to decide between his career and the woman he’s never stopped loving.

Rule #3: Don’t even think about falling in love again…
