P.S. I Dare You (PS Series Book 3)

by Winter Renshaw

Dear Ms. Keane,

Before this ridiculous little arrangement commences, I’d like to make myself indubitably clear: I know who you are, I know that my father hired you, I know why my father hired you, and last but not least: your services aren’t needed.

In fact, I want no part of my father’s billion-dollar empire, and him “gifting” me with one of the “best concierges in the county” won’t change that. He’s wasting his money. You’re wasting your time.

However, seeing as how you foolishly signed an ironclad contract with an Act of God clause and my father has strong-armed me into taking this position, it appears as though we’re stuck togetherâ??at least until your contract is up next month.

That said, our time together at WellesTech should be relatively painless but please don’t fool yourself into thinking I don’t notice when that pretty little stare lingers a little too long or the way your breath catches when our hands graze. You’re fascinated by me and it kills you because you can hardly stand to be in the same room as me.

Think I’m a problem worth solving? An impossible riddle worth figuring out? By all means, go ahead and try. Solve for X. Crack the code. It might even be fun (but only for me, not you).

V/r,

Calder Welles, II

P.S. I dare you.

Get Christmas all year longâ?¦

And so this year, I was spending Christmas with the Christmases. When I arrived at the mansion, Bryn, the one who invited me, was nowhere to be found. It was her older brother, Jasper who welcomed me with un-opened arms.

Jasper Christmas was a beautiful but dark angel. He was intense, brooding and the epitome of sexy; danger dripped from his pores. Bryn’s proposition would put me at odds with this mysterious being, who guarded their family’s secrets with his flaming sword.

So soon I found myself passionately entangled with Jasper Walker Christmas. I’m now worried that our encounters will make me betray the reason Bryn invited me here in the first place.

by Laurelin Paige

From the NYT bestselling author of the Fixed Trilogy…

I wasn’t supposed to be working the night I met JC.

Before him, I’d been content with the daily grind, managing one of NYC’s top nightclubs. So what if my life didn’t have a happily ever after? I didn’t believe in that anyway.

Then JC showed up.

Sexy, rich and smooth-talking, JC is nothing more than a distraction. I’m not interested in a night-in-shining latex so it’s easy to push the playboy away. Or it is until my life spins unexpectedly out-of-control. Then he’s there for me, offering a new method of survival, one based on following primal urges and desires that requires me to abandon my constant need for control.

His no-strings-attached lessons obliterate my carefully built walls. And as I discover freedom, I start to feel things for him that I shouldn’t. Things that make me fear for my newly vulnerable heart. Because JC has secrets of his own, and his secrets don’t want to set him free.

BOOK ONE OF TWO. This series can be read alone or with the Fixed Trilogy.

Crime and Punishment

by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Through the story of the brilliant but conflicted young Raskolnikov and the murder he commits, Fyodor Dostoyevsky explores the theme of redemption through suffering. “Crime and Punishment” put Dostoyevsky at the forefront of Russian writers when it appeared in 1866 and is now one of the most famous and influential novels in world literature.
The poverty-stricken Raskolnikov, a talented student, devises a theory about extraordinary men being above the law, since in their brilliance they think “new thoughts” and so contribute to society. He then sets out to prove his theory by murdering a vile, cynical old pawnbroker and her sister. The act brings Raskolnikov into contact with his own buried conscience and with two characters â?? the deeply religious Sonia, who has endured great suffering, and Porfiry, the intelligent and discerning official who is charged with investigating the murder â?? both of whom compel Raskolnikov to feel the split in his nature. Dostoyevsky provides readers with a suspenseful, penetrating psychological analysis that goes beyond the crime â?? which in the course of the novel demands drastic punishment â?? to reveal something about the human condition: The more we intellectualize, the more imprisoned we become.



Canvas: The Program Book 1

by N.M. Catalano

4 inked men.
1 is very, very bad.
He made me an offer.
One I accepted.
His friends made me another.
One I shouldn’t.
I really, really shouldn’t.

But I’m not that girl anymore. The one I left behind, the one who does what’s expected, the one who has no choice. The one with secrets. I ran away from that life, and hope it never finds me.
I can choose to do what I want, with who I want. Now. Finally.
I’ve heard the talk, the whispers, and all of the innuendos. I know what they do. All of them. Together.
Then I accepted his offer. He did things to me, he awakened things inside of me. He’s made me into something I never, ever thought I’d be. He’s the filthiest man I know, but he worships me with his lust.
How can I say no?

I was going to stay away from her.
Then they made me claim her.
If I didn’t, then they all would.
Together.
At the same time.
She’s mine.
I’ve got a past, secrets of my own. I’m not a man who does commitment, my life doesn’t allow it.
But then she appeared out of nowhere. She’s a mystery, a beautiful, innocent enigma, one I want to mark. Literally.
The problem is, I’m not sure I’ll be able to stop.
*18+ strong language and sexual content. A bit of a RomCom, a bit of suspense, it’s a bit dark, and, yeah, maybe a hint twisted.
The boys have got it all.*

by E. Pluribus Van Slyke

In April 1924, airship pirates descend on the luxury liner S.S. Paris and make off with a bounty of young female captives. When the various authorities appear powerless to act, one man steps forward, pledging himself to recover said booty and thereby render American womanhood secure.

Unfortunately for all concerned, that man is E. Pluribus Van Slykeâ?¦.

But this voyage into the unknown is doubly so, for it soon becomes obvious the pirates who raided the Paris descended from fictional skies.

Not to mention the anachronistic Jean Lafitte and his diabolical manicure of torture? Or outlive the perilous meal of passion served by a demonstrative Tortuga innkeeper?

Barely. But most dangerous of all is yet to come: Captain Bonnet, the mad pirate of Barbados. For on departing his company, Van Slyke finds himself betrothed to not one, not two, not three, but five of the Mortal Sins!

Coco Pinchard always dreamed of being a successful writer, but then life got in the way. She married young, had a son, and put her dreams on hold… But now she’s forty, and her first novel is about to be published! Her husband Daniel has greyed nicely into a silver fox, and her son Rosencrantz is all grown up. Shouldn’t it be time to enjoy life?

That is, until the annual family Christmas when her hideous in-laws come to stay, and Coco opens her gift from Daniel. It’s not the jewellery she chose, but an iPhone. This marks the start of Daniel’s mid-life crisis and Coco catches him in bed with a younger woman.

The iPhone becomes a confessional, and as Coco’s life unravels, she documents her seemingly endless (and often entertaining) run of bad luck through emails to loyal friends Christopher, an ageing trustafarian, and Marika, a slightly alcoholic schoolteacher.

Then Coco meets the hunky Adam and she’s back in the world of dating as a single forty-something. Read the emails that tell the heart warming and often hilarious tale of Coco picking up the pieces, in this fun, feel-good Romantic Comedy.

What people are saying about The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard:

‘I truly enjoyed every minute of my foray into Rom-Com, and the wacky world of Coco Pinchard!’ Lorraine Rugman- The Book Review Café

‘I couldn’t put it down. I literally laughed out loud several times… and who wouldn’t want to read through a stranger’s correspondence? Fabulous book.’ Noel, Amazon Reader

‘Fast moving, clips along with never a dull moment providing plenty of smiles, chuckles, and outright guffaws to a satisfyingly happy ending!’ RavenWoman, Amazon Reader

‘So refreshing not to have a cliché rom-com where you know exactly how everything is going to pan out! If you want a great British comedy give this a read!’ LL Colmer, Amazon Reader

‘I have a new favourite author! Bryndza tells the story as if you are sitting with your girlfriends exchanging bits of “wisdom”. The write up was correct. I do not often laugh-out-loud at books, but I sure did while reading this one!’ Gail Joramo, Amazon Reader

‘You think you’ve got problems? Trust me, they are nothing compared to what Coco Pinchard has! And how the author of this marvel manages to achieve such a level of hilarity while Coco goes from one disaster to another is the mark of true creative genius. The first of a three book series, this novel, told totally in entertaining emails, is laugh-out-loud funny.’ Mayda, Amazon Reader

‘What an outstanding read!! I laughed, cried and cringed alongside Coco, the main character in this pacy story. I loved the way the tale unfolded through a succession of emails…a format that worked brilliantly!‘ Amy, Amazon Reader

This book is just fab! Had me giggling out loud so many times. The sarcastic, subtle and genius sense of humour is just up my street. I think I know somebody just like all of the characters in the book, and/or have even been them at some point in my life, so could definitely relate!’ Mel, Amazon Reader

‘Loved this so much, funny and enjoyable. If you are going on holiday buy all three before you get to the beach or you will go nuts not being able to get the others before you get home. It is amazingly written by a man, who knew? Bryndza seems to be able to get into the head of women better than most other women. He has zeroed in on us and done it well!‘ FeatherOnAWire, Amazon top 100 reviewer



Battlefield Love: A Mythological Romance (Operation Cupid Book 1)

by Skyler Andra

When a sassy and disillusioned phone operator gets a hold of the power of Cupid, watch out!

A mysterious callerâ?¦

Locke Casey is nothing special. Sure, her job as a phone operator job is a little unusual, but it pays the bills, and as a broke, twenty something college student, she doesn’t have much room to be picky. She is used to odd calls from strange men thanks to her job, but when one begins quizzing her about love, she finds her life turned upside down.

An unbelievable turn of eventsâ?¦

Turns out the creepy caller might actually be Cupid. For some unknown reason, the god of love passed on his powers to Locke, which makes no sense considering she’s never been in love and considers the whole concept overrated. Talk about an unlikely candidate!

A mission to save the godsâ?¦

Having Cupid’s powers alone might be more than she can handle, but with her godly benefactor doing a disappearing act, all the gods are in a flurry, and it’s up to Locke to save Olympus. All in a day’s work, right?

Battlefield Love is the first in a series, a slow burn reverse harem romance with sexy, godly avatars and steamy scenes.
