CURATING LOVE by Cara Marsi (sensuous contemporary romance)

When a young American woman receives a letter from Ravello, Italy inviting her to curate a
private art collection, she begins to picture a new life for herself after a tragic loss. But
she’d never included her employer’s sexy grandson in that portrait. She’s not ready for a
relationship, even with a fine Italian masterpiece of a man. Can he convince her to paint a
new life that includes him?


JUST TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT by Tina Donahue (erotic PNR, romcom)

Her wishes will leave him breathless…

Things couldn’t be worse for Ranson, an out-of-work genie. Once coveted for his ability to
grant wishes, he and his kind are reduced to commodities and subsist on gig jobs through
an employment agency catering to elite clients.

Ranson’s recent masters and mistresses worked him to the bone before tossing him aside
for newer, more advanced genies with specialized knowledge in rigging the stock market,
getting candidates elected to office, changing the weather… Damn. He sucks at that stuff.
His sole talent is granting wishes for women to retain their youth.

Alexandra Prescott, billionaire CEO of a film and TV conglomerate, is only twenty-nine but
figures a genie can keep her looking good without surgery, a necessity in beauty-
obsessed Los Angeles. Not sure what to expect when he arrives, she’s surprised how tall,
virile, and luscious he is. A real hottie and no pushover. Tired of the crap he’s put up with,
he insists she treat him with respect, not merely as a service she’s rented.

She’s game and wants to get to know this bad boy. Up close and personal, they explore
what they both crave: heated days, wicked nights, learning their strengths and
weaknesses, touching each other’s souls. Wow.

They fall hard and fast, but in order to secure their future, there’s one last, nearly
impossible hurdle they must face….

To get out in one piece, she has to prove she’s no prude.

An easy matter under Hunter’s sinfully sexy guidance that sparks delight she’s never
known.

FIRECRACKER by Desiree Holt (erotic menage)

Dani DeLuca is known as Firecracker, as much for her hot rides as a barrel racer as for her
long, luxurious red hair. When she takes first place in the Fourth of July Golden Spur
Rodeo she decides it’s time to celebrate with some real fireworks. And who better to create
those sparks than Chad Bailey, bull breeder, and Brody Hunters, champion bull rider.
Dani’s never experienced a ménage but she’s sure if she did Chad and Brody would be
the ideal candidates.

Chad and Brody have been rodeo friends with Firecracker for a long time but they’ve
never taken it beyond that. For one thing they didn’t want to ruin a great relationship. For
another, they were all too aware that she didn’t play on the circuit. But over some time
sparks have been simmering between them, sparks that are just waiting to be ignited.

The two men take Dani to a classy hotel for an elegant dinner and night of celebration. But
all through dinner the air around them crackles with sexual electricity and when they give
in to the desires gripping them all, the Fourth of July fireworks have nothing on the sparks
between Dani, Chad and Brody.

NAILED by Cindy Spencer Pape (hot, sensual contemporary)

sparks fly, but she knows the handsome contractor would never fall for a plain nerd like
her. Warner, though, has other ideas. Smart, voluptuous Karen is everything he's ever
wanted in a woman, and this time around, he's enough of a grown up to appreciate it. Now
all he has to do is convince the lady he really does want her--in every way possible.


BUILDING UP TO LOVE by Joanne Jaytanie (sweet romance, a little suspense,
contemporary)

For something to last a lifetime it must start with a strong foundation and build up from
there.
A small town can be a friendly place to call home, but an impossible place to find a date. A
group of Laura’s friends tries to change their fates and place the names of male friends
into a basket. Each woman draws a name, with the promise to invite the man they chose
on a date. Laura believes the basket is cursed as her dates go from bad to worse. She
resigns herself to the belief that her new business, a Bed and Breakfast is the only love
she’ll ever possess.

Travis Jerome is new to town. He jumps at the opportunity to work on a one-hundred-year-
old Victorian House. A challenging transformation that will become Laura’s Bed &
Breakfast. He yearns for the chance to have the familiar weight of a hammer in his hand.

RIPPED AT THE SEAMS by Deelylah Mullin

It may sound cliche, but I had a summer fling at the beach with a guy named Danny. I’m
Sandy. Don’t think our story is a mirror image of the musical, though.

With all the chaos in the world, I wanted a break from everyday life. I booked two weeks on
Tybee Island and hoped for the best-the best weather, the best food, and the best solitude.
Little did I know, the girl in the next condo over would break down the walls I’d built-
around myself and around my heart.

When you feel each stitch in your life unraveling, sometimes it’s better to give in than to be
ripped at the seams.


DARE TO FEEL by Nicole Morgan

Tracy Beaumont isn’t having a good night. Every patron in her section at Platinum was
filled with drunk men and women who had absolutely no boundaries when it came to
grabbing her behind or attempting to feel her up. The last thing she needs is a blast from
the past who left her with more bad memories than good.

Brett Hanson is doing his best to settle into his new city. The quiet retirement city of Sun
City, Arizona that he used to work in was nothing compared to the Las Vegas and the strip
but, his new job as Customer Relations Manager at Caesar’s Palace was one that he
couldn’t pass up. 

Tracy hasn’t seen Brett for 15 years, since the night of their senior prom and she walked in
on him and her best friend having sex. She never forgave her friend for that betrayal. And
she never forgot the heartbreak that Brett had created. Now when he walks into her
section at Platinum, she is faced with the one love that she was never able to forget or get
over.
