WANT ME FOREVER September 21st
Getting stuck with a small town grump wasn’t the promotion I was hoping for. He thinks I’m a soft city girl he can chase away with harsh words, rude behavior, and mood swings that give me whiplash.
Except this city girl is made of tougher stuff. Mostly. I do have a weakness for rough hands and cowboy boots. But I’m keeping that to myself.
The fact is his winery needs my marketing firm’s help to survive. So I stick to him like glue, never letting him scare me away, determined to get him to make some much-needed changes.
Except when I learn why he resists changing things, my heart softens. It seems I’m not the only one with a painful past.
Before long I’m even sharing my secrets, telling him things I’ve never told anyone before. And as he comforts me, it becomes harder and harder not to give in and kiss him.
Until I do. And soon he even uses my weakness against me—fulfilling a certain fantasy that involves cowboy boots and tying me up with a lasso.
But a series of questionable accidents around his vineyards has me worried that my past has caught up with me. Worse, it’s putting him in danger.
Soon I have no choice but to leave.
Except Beck is determined to stand by me and make me his girl.
But if I give in? It might destroy not only him, but his family as well.

He spent twenty years in prison.
She spent twenty years living a lie.
At 2:00 a.m. Sylvia Stone awakens to a letter on her doorstep suggesting the handsome carpenter who was convicted of murdering her mother twenty years earlier is innocent. The anonymous letters continue, each one revealing details only the true killer would know, making Sylvia question her testimony so many years ago.
Newly released from prison, Rhett Cohen has spent the last two decades with only one thing on his mind: Find the man who framed him for killing Marjorie Stone, and kill him. Rhett will do anything to get his revenge, including manipulating the late woman’s daughter.
But suddenly, Sylvia disappears.
Public interest in the twenty-year-old case reignites around Sylvia’s disappearance. The suspect? The man she accused of murder—the reticent former inmate, Rhett Cohen.
Under mounting pressure from the police and media, Rhett must find Sylvia, convince the angry small-town mob that he is innocent, and prove he was framed—or risk going back to prison for life.
In this twisted tale of revenge, deception, and forbidden love, there are two sides to every story, and two faces with every crime.
THE STONE SECRET is perfect for readers of Verity by Colleen Hoover, Gillian Flynn, Jeneva Rose, Karin Slaughter, and Lisa Jewell

THE ROYAL STREET WITCH August 28th
Aster Wildes is the last true witch of New Orleans.
Behind the walls of a French Quarter speakeasy, Aster sells magic potions to a family of vampires. It’s not a glamorous job and barely pays her mortgage, but Aster knows what her coven expects of her…
Create elixirs that allow vampires to survive, don’t fraternize with said vampires, and never, ever conduct business on the side.
Despising vampires makes these rules easy to follow until Bastian Delacroix reappears. And after years of being absent, does he really have to smile at Aster the way he does? Doesn’t he know he’s supposed to act like the other vampires—exude doom and gloom rather than rakish charm?
With the nerve to propose a secret deal, Bastian requests that Aster concoct a potion that allows vampires to walk in the sun, and in return, she’ll be handsomely rewarded for her crime.
Although Aster knows better than to trust vampires, she finds herself giving in to the allure of financial freedom . . . and to him.
The two embark on an illicit journey, allowing Aster to see a new side of Bastian, one that’s charismatic and tender. When business inevitably mixes with pleasure, they find themselves carried away by a romance as forbidden as the potion they’ve created.
But there are stakes in the bayou where witches have burned for treason, and when Aster is in danger of being exposed, she knows she will have to make a choice—Bastian or the coven her blood is tied to.
It’s a predicament no amount of magic can solve.

PERFECT FOR YOU October 5th
I’m a small-town cop with absolutely no game.
She’s a pro poker player who doesn’t like to lose.
Lucky for me, the girl next door is an excellent teacher.
I’m a twenty-something bachelor looking for love, but when another woman dumps me square in the friend zone, it’s time to admit I’ve got no idea what I’m doing.
I need help, and I’ve got two options.
One: Join the Bay’s super-secret senior citizens’ romance readers book club and hope a bunch of randy octogenarians can give me some tips. Or two: Risk total humiliation and let the sexy, sassy gambler next door, Birdie Maxwell, rate my moves.
Like the idiot I am, I do both.
In no time at all, I’m the book club’s most enthusiastic member and Birdie’s my willing and very able test subject. As our sessions get hotter, so does the draw between us until we’re breaking all the rules, and not only in the bedroom.
As the walls around Birdie’s heart tumble faster than a house of cards, I can’t shake the feeling this is more than just a game. But Birdie’s poker face rarely slips. She insists our relationship is just one friend helping another, yet I know what we’ve got is too perfect to leave on the table. I’m not the kind of guy who makes or takes a bet, but what choice do I have when this woman holds my heart in her hands?
The stakes are set, the cards are dealt, and this time I’m all in. Birdie Maxwell, I’m about to call your bluff.
