*** LATEST NEW RELEASES ***
Landslide by Jenn Cooksley — New Release!!
WOAH!!! The last line of this blurb made my heart skip a beat!!
“For Erica and Cole, the bond of friendship was forged in childhood. Now, torn and broken by grief, that bond will become paramount as two friends look to one another for comfort, strength, and hope in the aftermath of loss. On a journey taken both together and alone, they search for healing and life… Because, for some people…love is friendship caught on fire.” <---- LOVE!!!
Past Heaven by Laura Ward — New Release!!
WOAH!! This new standalone sounds AMAZING!! It’s such a unique story!! — The heroine’s world comes crashing down when her husband is murdered, leaving her to raise their three young children alone. The hero is a famous Hollywood actor who takes on a role playing her husband in a movie. His life then naturally collides with hers. But it turns into more. They never expected their professional relationship to evolve into friendship, or love, but that’s exactly what happens.
Beautiful Redemption by Jamie McGuire — New Release!!
This is the second book in the Maddox Brothers series!!
Be sure to read Beautiful Oblivion first.

Wings Over Poppies by JA DeRouen — New Release!!
I love the sound of this second chance romance standalone!!
“Years have passed, and I’ve tried to move on with my life. But I still dream of him. I still miss him everyday. The memories haunt me… The time has come to find the boy who stole my heart and ran away without a word. But not everyone who is lost wants to be found… This is my story of unfinished love.”
Sever by JM Miller — New Release!!
Oh, this standalone sounds really different!! It seems to be a second chance romance with a unique set up. — The heroine and hero were once childhood friends. They were separated when her family moved away. They meet up several years later, but now she’s in jail and he’s off to college. And the next time they meet (years later again), its when she’s taken a job to break into a house he’s bought… — I’m SUPER intrigued!! *click*
Risking It All by Tessa Bailey — New Release!!
This sounds GOOD!! — She’s gone rogue. He’ll live to keep her safe.
“To track down the evidence she needs to take down her brother’s killer, the heroine joins the NYPD, and goes undercover. Unsanctioned. Alone. Meanwhile the hero has been given a job to extricate her. But when they meet, he knows there’s only one way to keep her safe without blowing either of their covers… by claiming her as his own.”
Contractual by Alice Montalvo-Tribue — New Release!!
Here’s another new standalone!! — “They told me I’d be an escort; they made it sound so easy. Really I’m just a high priced call girl. Desperation brought me to this and it led me to him, my one and only client. Hating him is easy, he reminds me of my shame. Wanting him is wrong it fills me with guilt. Loving him is a losing battle yet it’s become everything. He consumes my every thought and I’d rather play my part in his bed than to spend one day without him.”
Throb by Vi Keeland — New Release!!
This steamy standalone romance has quite the blurb!!
“The rules: No dating. No sex outside of the game. No disclosing the terms of the contract. Rules were made to be broken, right? …. Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations… It wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.”
Falling for Jillian by Kristen Proby — New Release!!
This is the latest standalone in this series featuring a veteran struggling with PTSD and the one woman who can help him recover — and learn to love again.
Jillian thought she was a city girl through and through… Zack is a veteran of the Iraq War who came back to the family ranch to raise his preteen son after the boy’s mother took off. He’s struggling to re-establish a relationship with his son, and warding off the demons of PTSD, which still haunt him. The last thing he needs is bold, brassy Jillian…but why can’t he keep his hands off her?
A Father’s Fight by JB Salsbury — New Release!!
This novella is the continuation of the story of the couple from the second standalone in this popular fighter romance series. The main novel should be read first. Both are linked below.
“Life changes in the span of a heartbeat—one tiny heartbeat.”
Kaleidoscope Hearts by Claire Contreras — New Release!!
Oooh, this new standalone sounds so good!!!
“He was my older brother’s best friend. He was never supposed to be mine. I thought we would get it out of our system and move on. One of us did. One of us left. Now he’s back, looking at me like he wants to devour me. And all those feelings I’d turned into anger are brewing into something else… He broke my heart last time. This time he’ll obliterate it.”
The Traveling Man by Jane Harvey Berrick — New Release!!
This sounds so intriguing and it’s only $0.99!!

Bound by Flamed by Jeaniene Frost — New Release!!
This is the third book in the PNR Night Price series (a spin-off of the Night Huntress series) following Vlad and Leila.
These are paranormal (vampire) romance books and they are not standalones and should be read in order. All the books are about the same couple.
The Vigilante’s Lover #2 by Annie Winters — New Release!!
This the sequel to The Vigilante’s Lover and continues the story. — She trembles as she reads the letter that arrives from Ridley Prison. Seduction. Rope ties. Things she’s never experienced.

Going The Distance by Julianna Keyes — New Release!!
Wow, this sounds DIFFERENT!! — The heroine impulsively accepts a job in China after her life falls apart. Three months in, she’s miserable. She doesn’t speak Mandarin and she’s all alone. The hero, Jarek McLean is a loner. He’s used to be in the army and he’s not looking for friends, and he’s definitely not looking for love.

SQUEE!!!! I finished reading this in one sitting and I absolutely LOVED it!!!! Gorgeous emotions with the perfect balance between heart-wrenching and heart-melting… Sexy hotness that had me fanning myself for pages on end… And a story that kept me glued to the book!! This can be read as a standalone and I HIGHLY recommend it!!! It’s been on my TBR since the day it came out and I’m kicking myself for not having read it sooner. I was in the mood for something emotional and so far this is EXACTLY what I wanted!!! It had ALL THE FEELS!!
I finished this brand new standalone romance while wiping away tears just because of how BEAUTIFUL the epilogue was!! The story is about a woman who is on her way to her wedding when her private jet crashes in the rainforest. With no communication to the outside world and barely any supplies, she and her pilot have to work together to survive. And the more time they spend together, they slowly begin to fall in love… If you’re looking for a “different” love story, give this one a try!! I really enjoyed it!! — And, it’s ONLY $0.99 for a limited time!!!
This was really beautiful love story — a second chance romance standalone with a heart-wrenching back story. — After a car accident shatters his girlfriend’s spine, Jack McKenna disappeared. Desperate to escape the guilt, he spent four years hiding in the shadows, punishing himself for not having the courage to go back to her. Then, out of the blue, a phone call forces him to face up to everything and everyone he left behind… especially her.
This was fast-paced, thrilling, mysterious, exciting, romantic, and kept me guessing the whole way though. I literally could not put it down!!
Best friends since they could walk. In love since they were fourteen.
Complete strangers since this morning.
He’ll do anything to remember.
She’ll do anything to forget.
If you’re looking for a standalone to fall in love with, this friend-to-lovers romance was fun, hot, a little angsty, and kept me glued to the page!!
The hero is a ruggedly handsome helicopter pilot. The heroine is an ambitious businesswoman. They’ve been best friends forever. Back in their 20’s, they made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them are in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty… And as they get closer, their pact is put to the test!!
SQUEE!! I absolutely LOOOOVED this book!!! It’s a second chance romance with a moody, brooding, tortured bad boy hero and this INTENSE “hate-to-love-each-other”, dysfunctional-but-can’t-stay-away, love-you-forever-no-matter-how-painful type of love story. It just had this SPARK that made my heart RACE!! 5 STARS!!
“If you want me to apologize, I’ll do it until I lose my fucking voice. I just want things to be right between us. Talk to me. Help me fix this.”
I recently finished this and loved it! It’s a contemporary romance (not paranormal) about two broken people falling in love. The hero is tall, dark, mysterious, and tattooed. He runs a tattoo parlor and is intrigued when the girl from across the street comes in and shows him the hauntingly beautiful, intricate tattoo she wants him to ink onto her. It’s kind of funny, sweet, but also edgy and a little angsty.
