BROKEN LITTLE MELODIES
Music was his first love.
Hers was the lanky boy from summer camp with a beautiful voice and starlit green eyes.
Isabelle and Roman thought they’d be together until the end of time. Then fate proved an orphan from the West Coast couldn’t have a future with a wealthy New Yorker hiding the scars of an abusive home.
Five years after their hearts are broken, fate strikes again when they’re reunited as a waitress headlining a bar-band, and a successful rockstar kicking off his first tour.
Even though the past nearly destroyed them both, the attraction is stronger than ever, and Roman refuses to let the girl he promised to love forever slip away a second time.
But picking at old wounds proves to be dangerous when the reasons they were driven apart as kids won’t stay buried forever.
DISASTER AT ROOSEVELT RANCH
I slept with the wrong twin.
And all I got for it in return was a broken heart.
Oh yeah, and a baby on the way—there’s that too.
But I’m determined to make it on my own. I don’t need a man, thank you very much. Not rich, charismatic, and decidedly flighty Rex Roosevelt, and especially not his twin brother, Justin.
No matter that the gorgeous former military doctor makes my heart beat a little faster . . . and all spots lower than that pay careful, careful attention.
None of that matters. The Roosevelt men are dangerous and I’m steering clear.
The trouble is, Justin refuses to leave me be.
And deep down, I don’t want to avoid him.
Deep down, I want to be even closer.
MORE THAN MEMORIES
A heartbreaking second chance contemporary romance that'll leave you reeling with emotion overload.
Memories are never forgotten. Or so it’s said, but she did. She forgot herself, me—us. She forgot everything. One day I woke up and there was only pain. This pain so fierce that I can’t overcome it alone. My heart was ripped out of my chest. I’m surviving, but barely. Not even the physical outlet I seek, to purge the torment of remembering the one I can’t let go, helps anymore.
In all of his agony, what if the worst of his pain has yet to be expelled? A secret that could have changed everything . . . had he known.

I was infatuated with Asher Kelley the moment he came tumbling through my brother’s window five years ago.
Even bruised and bloodied, he was the most beautiful boy I'd ever seen.
We couldn't ever be together.
I was too young, and he was too untouchable.
He was too troubled, and I was too naive.
But the heart is rebellious, and mine decided it didn’t care about any of those things.
As I got older, harmless flirting turned to stolen moments in dark corners.
Until one day, he was gone without a trace.
Now, three years later, he’s back.
Callous and cruel.
He’s my brother’s best friend. My parents’ worst nightmare.
I should hate him.
But like a Bad Habit, I can’t quit him.
I was drawn to Briar Vale from the first time she looked up at me with stars in her big, blue eyes.
She was just a kid, nothing but elbows and knees, but she was the most beautiful creature I'd ever seen.
We could never be together.
I was too old and she was too off limits.
She was too good and I was too fucked up.
Eventually, the temptation became too much to resist.
I risked everything for a kiss and she betrayed me.
Three years have passed and I’m forced to see her again, but now she's all grown up.
She’s my best friend’s baby sister. My downfall.
I hate her for what she did.
But she's always been my drug of choice
He's my best friend's older brother, off limits and incredibly tempting.
I shouldn't peek into Brendon's sketchbook, even if the tattoo artist is as brooding and stoic as the day is long. I can't help myself. I peel it open, run my fingers along the paper, soak up every ounce of him.
His drawings are as beautiful and bold as his dark eyes and his cocky smile. Only, there, on the third page--that's no tattoo mockup. That's me.
Waiting in his bed.
There's no denying it--those are my blue glasses, my green eyes, my flushed cheeks.
Brendon wants me.
The smoking hot, ten thousand miles out of my league bad boy wants me-- a good girl v*rgin with thick glasses and no game.
Only it's not.
He's my best friend's older brother. He's off limits.
But damn is he tempting.

SHOPPING FOR A BILLIONAIRE
When mystery shopper Shannon Jacoby meets billionaire Declan McCormick with her hand down a toilet in the men’s room of one of his stores, it’s love at first flush in this hilarious new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent.
Sarah has always been torn between two worlds—the carefree, easygoing world of her hippie mom, where life is all about helping others and building good karma, and the real world, with real responsibilities, like paying bills, and getting to work on time, values obviously gleaned from dad’s side of the family.
She has nothing but fond memories of her father. He was always there for her, and clearly loved her mother more than she thought possible, despite mom’s overtly eccentric behavior. Losing dad was tough, but Sarah’s been reduced to being the girl with the crazy mom, a reputation that’s not likely to increase her chances of landing her dream promotion at the resort across the bay. Especially with the new competition.
Ben is an attractive, sophisticated, and savvy businessman, clearly there to destroy her chances of getting the job. Her luck couldn’t be worse.
With an obvious attraction and closeness forming between the two, Sarah discovers that Ben’s motives may not be as clear as she first thought. What’s he really doing there? Is she being played?
Benjamin Rothschild has come to the popular upscale resort strictly for business. There to evaluate Sarah for a new position, he can’t help being drawn in by her sensual charm and free-spirited nature. But for some reason, this passionate beauty has it out for him. What has he ever done to her?
With so much confusion and something obviously lost in the translation, he’ll have to do everything in his power to convince her that his intentions for her are true.
LOVE, DIAMONDS AND SPADES
-- A USA TODAY Bestseller --
Fiercely independent single mom Quinn Christiansen likes already being known in town for having a heart too hard for any man to break, courtesy of her deadbeat ex who left her with a mountain of his gambling debts to pay off, on top of the pediatric hospital bills her son had required from birth. So when she finally meets the lone man in Cactus Creek inexplicably undaunted by her ball-busting tendencies, Quinn has absolutely no idea what to do with him. Not only is he ridiculously handsome, and surprisingly sweet under his gruff and gritty exterior, he's also clearly determined to invade her life.
Rylan Grey isn't used to getting a woman so worked up. Well, not in a bad way, at least.
And yet somehow, his mere existence seems to annoy the guarded and gorgeous Quinn to no end. Sure, he's made some gambles to get to where he's at, but they were all of the life variety, with risks as important as the rewards, fate betting as the house, and most importantly, not a single dollar in play. Though Rylan has never wagered anything he's not willing to lose--namely his heart--once he sees past Quinn's icy defenses, he's more than ready to ante up...for what's bound to be his riskiest gamble yet.
