I look up to see the front door swing open, and Caden Taylor steps inside with more swagger than should be allowed for one man. Tall, with light brown hair and dark eyes that are impossible to look away from. His gaze locks with mine and he smiles. He has a smile that reaches his eyes, and my breath catches at the sight of him.
“Hello? Earth to Cosette. Why are you staring at him? Is he the guy? Isn’t he a construction worker from the Bronx?” Jeremy says with such disdain, I can’t help but roll my eyes.
The man is so snobby I can barely stand to be in his presence any longer. If it weren’t for the love I have for his family, I’d have walked away and never looked back.
“Yes. We’re together. And he’s an incredible developer, so I’d appreciate it if you’d show him the respect that he deserves.” I raise a brow at both Jeremy and my mother. She’s busy shoving Louie back down in the plush silk lining that he’s grown accustomed to.
“Caden Taylor? You’re dating him?” my mother finally says, as she glances over at him and back to me. “He’s so … American.”
“He sure is.” I curtsy with a fake smile plastered on my face. “Now if you’ll excuse me. I’d like to greet him properly.”
My hands are shaking when I storm away, and Caden’s gaze doesn’t leave mine as I close the space between us, ignoring all the people waving and smiling at me as I do so. I know my mother and Jeremy are watching and I need to make a point, once and for all. This madness needs to stop. I’m just hoping Caden is willing to play along.
“Hey,” I say as a wide grin spreads across his face. His brother Gus is beside him but I don’t have time to greet him just yet. “I need a favor. Will you play along with something?”
“You don’t even have to ask,” his voice is smooth and confident.
I glance over my shoulder to see my mother and Jeremy watching me. Jeremy smirks, as if he doesn’t believe anything about this.
It’s time to up my game.
I push up on my tiptoes and wrap my hands around Caden’s neck and pull his mouth down to mine. I only intend to peck his perfect lips, just enough to get my point across. But when his mouth covers mine and his hands reach up to hold either side of my face, everything changes. I step in closer, enjoying the hard heat of his body, and his tongue slips in, deepening our kiss.

New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a heartfelt, enemies to lovers romance and a hero who redeems himself to steal your heart . . .
He was the one-night stand that didn’t exactly go as planned. Now he’s standing before me as if he’s never seen me naked, telling my manager he’ll take the job. Reluctantly.
Sports agent extraordinaire. Handsome as hell. The man who just signed on to control my every move.
Sure, I’m to blame for my recent bad press, but when your whole life has been so regimented, isn’t it normal to want to live it up a little?
But when the partying stops and the grief I’m running from has nowhere else to hide, reality sets in. Turns out, Finn’s the only person I have left to help pick up the pieces. The only person to call.
Staying with him is a temporary thing. But when our fighting turns into laughter and our friendship turns into something more, will I fight for a man who swears he’s hard to love? Or is it wiser to walk away? To follow the plan?
* * * Offering to help with a client is a way to repay a long overdue IOU to my mentor. Little did I know she was the woman who left my hotel room at four in the morning.
Top-seeded US tennis player. Good girl gone bad. The woman currently about to throw her career away. And now my problem.
The compensation to “babysit” her is great, but she isn’t worth my trouble.
But when her world falls apart and she has no one else to turn to, I try to be a good guy by gathering her up and hiding her from the media’s eye.
Now she’s in my house, in my space, and even though I’m enjoying the side benefits of this unexpected arrangement, surely she’s better to leave when the time comes and follow her destiny. Because I’m not the man she needs. Not the man she could love. Right?

I am SO glad that I wised up enough to jump back on the K. Bromberg train, because I am in love with every single one of her books. Case in point, HARD TO LOVE, the final book in Kristy’s Play Hard series.
Now, while I’d said that if anyone could redeem Finn Sanderson, the arrogant, sneaky, sort of slimy bad guy in the series, it would be Kristy, I was still eager to see how it would be done, and she did not disappoint.
Finn and Stevie are perfect for each other. It was so satisfying to finally get a look inside Finn, to see what shaped him and made him, well, him. It was really hard to find anything redemptive at all in his appearances in prior books, but getting his backstory, and seeing a side of him in his interactions with Stevie that showed his vulnerability and his commitment to her and her well-being had my heart pitter-pattering.
Stevie Lancaster may have been a tennis phenom, but losing her touchstone and anchor when her father died left her reeling. Once she realized that she could count on Finn, and that he wasn’t going to leave, was exactly what she needed to do some growing of her own, and I really think that she is as responsible for Finn’s actualization and healing as he is for her.
HARD TO LOVE was the perfect ending to this series, and I am so glad that Kristy saved this story for last. I can happily say that I adore Finn now. Like all of Kristy’s books, it left me with a smile on my face, and looking forward to whatever’s coming next, and that, to me, is the mark of a really good book, and a wonderful author. 4.5 stars, and a place as one of my favorite reads of 2021. Make time to read these books, and see what you’ve been missing. You’ll be glad that you did. ❤️

I have been waiting to read Emmett Stone’s book since the first book in this series, and I’m pretty sure that I am not alone. Emmett has always come across as all swagger and sex, the guy who, along with Leo Winter, his partner in crime, is the quintessential good time guy. And at first glance, the Emmett of TIN QUEEN, the sixth and final book (*cries*) in the Tin Gypsy series by Devney Perry, there’s no reason to think much differently. Or is there?
Because, along the way, throughout the course of these books, there’ve been hints, nuances of change, and of a depth to Emmett, as well as the rest of the Gypsies, that wasn’t obvious at first. Life is moving along, with his brothers finding love and making the changes in their lives that come along with that. And Emmett is evolving, too, as the things that used to be important become less so.
Enter June “Nova” Johnson. She knows who Emmett is, and she has her own agenda, one that is certain to shake things up in Emmett’s world, and that of his friends. Driven by vengeance, the last thing that Nova is looking for is a happily ever after, and she’s determined that the Gypsies won’t have one, either. If only life worked out the way that we expected…
Devney’s flawless storytelling makes TIN QUEEN a book that I could absolutely not put down. The characters, their personal stories, the love that they have for their families that make them who they are, has ensured that the Tin Gypsies series is an all-time favorite, and one that I could visit again and again. I have said with each of these books that it was my “new favorite,” and it has always been true. But, I’m going to have to say that Emmett, well, Emmett has my heart. The obstacles that he and Nova overcome in their journey had me loving him more with each page. I wasn’t quite sure that things were going to be resolved the way that I was hoping, and, in all honesty, I was prepared for the worst. Suffice to say that I was crying happy tears by the end, and bless Devney for epilogues and bonus stories, because they rounded everything out perfectly. A 5+ star read for me in every way, TIN QUEEN is an easy recommendation, and one that I will keep on making. If you haven’t read this series, you are definitely missing out. Do yourself a favor and dive in. You will absolutely fall in love. ❤️

In this steamy tale by USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn, an American searching for her purpose escapes to a Scottish town but finds more questions than answers when she meets a brooding yet handsome handyman.
Freshly fired from her third job in a row, Bonnie St. James has lost her way. So when she and her best friend stumble upon a “help wanted” post to run a coffee shop in the Scottish Highlands, they apply on a whim. Who knows? Maybe traveling to a new place is just what she needs to figure out her next move.
When the friends arrive in the tiny idyllic town of Corsekelly, they instantly fall for the gorgeous Highland landscape and friendly townspeople. But Bonnie finds a less-than-warm welcome in Rowan MacGregor, the rugged local handyman. Busy wrestling his own demons, Rowan’s in no mood to deal with the quirky American—even if she is a bonny lass.
As Bonnie and Rowan’s paths inevitably cross, insults—and sparks—fly. Can the pair build on their similarities to help each other find purpose and direction…and maybe romance too? Or will their passionate tempers fling them apart?
“I know you would have done the same for me.” I move my hands slowly across his chest. “Rowan?”
“Does this mean . . . we’re starting something?”
“Are you fishing for a date, lass?”
“Wouldn’t hurt you to ask, you know.”
And I wait . . . and wait . . . and wait.
“Uh, are you going to ask?”
“On my terms, Bonnie. Now just go to sleep.”
“On your terms—what does that even mean?”
“Means I’ll ask when I ask.”
“Well, I can’t wait around forever, you know. I’m fresh meat in a Scottish meat market. I might be asked out tomorrow, and because you never asked me out, I would take that date.”
“Then take it,” he says casually.
I pinch his side, and he barely flinches. “You’re not supposed to say that.”
“I know you wouldn’t take it. You’re too infatuated with me.”
“Oh, now you did it,” I exclaim. “Now I’m going to go ask Lieth out just to spite you.”
He chuckles. “Good luck. I heard he likes to lick necks on first dates.”
“Well, then he’s the perfect man for me.”

In order to outsmart them, Ben and Tenzin will need to walk a literal and figurative edge through a maze of vampire loyalties, shadowy motivations, and ancient secrets. If Saba wanted them gone, she could command the earth to swallow them whole. But the mother of vampires is playing her own game, and both Ben and Tenzin are no more than pawns. Can they outsmart and outmaneuver the most primeval beings in their race to find the Bone Scroll before it lands in the possession of those who care only for their own selfish gain?

Bond of Destiny, an all new fast paced paranormal stand-alone novella in the Demonica series from New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione and 1,001 Dark Nights, is available now!
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione returns with a new story in her Demonica series…
Sold into slavery mere hours after his birth to werewolf parents, Tracker spent decades in service to cruel underworlders. Then the fallen angel Harvester transferred his ownership to a human woman who gave him as much freedom as the unbreakable bond would allow. Still, thanks to his traumatic past, he’s afraid to trust, let alone feel love. But when an acquaintance shows up at his door, injured and in need of help, he finds himself longing for a connection. For someone to touch. For someone to care.
Stacey Orr has had it bad for Tracker since the day her best friend, Jillian, was forced to hold his unbreakable slave bond. At first, the fact that he’s a werewolf seemed weird to Stacey, but hey, her best friend was married to one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, so weird is definitely a matter of perspective. Stacey knows the depths of Tracker’s trauma, and she longs to help him even as he helps her, but breaking through his walls isn’t easy.
And it only gets harder when the only blood family he has, the pack that gave him away, lays claim to him…and everything he loves.

The only one who could save me, was the one man I tried so desperately to push away.
Wild Spirit, the all-new moving and beautifully written standalone romance and newest book in the Soul Sister series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan is available now!
When I was born, I was beloved by my parents. I felt their warmth from the tips of my toes to the untamable curls in my hair—until tragedy hit and I lost them both. With no extended family, I ended up in Kerrighan House, a home for girls just like me—girls who’d lost everything. Mama Kerri took me in and treated me with nothing but love, as did the rest of my sisters of the soul. In that house, we formed a bond that could never be broken. Now danger seems to follow all of us. But what danger could come to me: a petite, high-school Spanish teacher who’d never hurt a fly? The only one on my tail is Omar Alvarado, the bodyguard hired to protect me from the danger lurking around my sisters. The more I shun his advances though, the harder he tries to earn my favor. Omar seems to like my brand of sass and doesn’t hide the fact he wants me for his own. I’m determined to not get caught up in his beautiful smile, the sexy suggestions he whispers in my ear, or that incredible body that would make any woman swoon with desire. Even with the tension rising between us, all seemed to be kept in check—until I found myself in the middle of a high stakes bank robbery. And the only one who could save me, was the one man I tried so desperately to push away.
