Stay by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy — New Release!!
Can standalone: She has a hunch that her favorite client is actually a hockey star. Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, she is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting… until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.
He’s no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage… He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.
But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. She can’t resist the offer. He can’t resist her. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!
Salvaged by Jay Crownover — New Release!!
Can standalone: “He’s a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way.

He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets her, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. He can see her pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes…
The only thing she is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with him, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.”
Tycoon by Katy Evans — New Release!!
Standalone: “He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult. He was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone. In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city. He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman. The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin. It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help. I didn’t expect him to offer it easily. And he doesn’t. Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone… I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me. Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself. Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.”

When Nina realizes the man she planned to grow old with doesn’t know her at all, it’s time to rethink her idea of perfect. And what better place to get her life in order than a remote Colorado mountain town halfway around the world?
Gnaw Bone, Colorado, may not be flashy or cosmopolitan, but it’s got a brand of hospitality all its own.

For five years, Ty was imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. Now he wants revenge on the people who framed him.

Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with me. At all. Adorable.
