Chase Me (The Holmes Brothers Book 4) by Farrah Rochon
The Holmes Brothers has always been, by far, my most popular series. I am thrilled to return the my beloved New Orleans and this family of sexy brothers.
What was she thinking?
The last thing Indina Holmes needs in her life is three days on the open seas with her loving but nosy family. But that’s exactly what she’s in store for her when her brother guilts her into joining the Holmes family reunion cruise. When she needs a cabin mate at the last minute, her only option is the co-worker she’s been sleeping with for the past year. Now, she just has to keep her family from trying to play matchmaker.
What was he thinking?
For the past eight months, Griffin Sims has pretended to be okay with the co-worker-with-benefits arrangement he’s had going with Indina, but he wants more than just her body. He wants a real relationship. Indina’s invitation to join her on a cruise is exactly the opportunity Griffin has been looking for to prove to the woman who has been sharing his bed that it’s time for her to share her heart.
Ante Up by Christina C. Jones
I know exactly why it turns you on…because you’re messed up too.
Asha’s life is no fairytale, by any stretch of the imagination. There was no kind, generous father to care for and protect her from the Vegas that exists beyond the glitz and glamour of The Strip. No wise, doting mother to look over and guide her, passing down essential lessons and leading her to the right path. And certainly no Prince Charming just around the corner, ready to rescue her from working late nights to cover steadily mounting bills.
But she’s alive. Overwhelmed with responsibility she never asked for, carrying secrets and scars that haunt her, and singularly focused on an uncertain path to escape, but… alive.
You’re not born to sharks without becoming one yourself.
In Vegas, King is exactly what his name implies. Born into money and influence, but respected – and feared – in his own right. The privileges of wealth have afforded him many things: freedom, power, massive eligibility – while simultaneously leaving him exposed to others: betrayal, exploitation, and manipulation.
But he learned. The tolls of duplicity, wrath, and vengeance have taught him to be more mindful, more shrewd, to keep himself clear of the vulnerability of certain situations, certain business deals, certain places, and certain women.
Women like Asha.
Like attracts like…
Her poker face has kept her alive all this time, and he keeps his cards close to his chest. Neither is interested in gambling their hearts, but when they can’t stay away from each other, there’s only one choice… ante up.

Butterflies In A Mason Jar by Sabrina E L B Scales
Hi, I’m Sydney, respectfully known as ‘The Curly Headed Cupid’ thanks to my inherited ability to connect drifting souls to their soulmates. It seemed like a far reach at first, but with the love and support of my family and very best friend, and the bleeding hearts of quite a few strangers, I’ve built an empire guiding people to the one thing they can’t live without–love. Granted, it’s an amazing gift to possess, it’s ten times harder than it looks on the surface, and one hundred times as challenging when it comes to finding my own forever love.
Given the basis of my profession, it would appear to be as simple as matching the guy who loves sports with the girl who played ball in college. But contrary to popular belief, there is more to finding your soulmate than having extra-curricular activities and favorite music genres in common. There’s a magical element involved when finding your match, one that can’t be checked off on a list or discovered through mere appearances. There’s a feeling, one comparable to static electricity, that must be present in order to validate the connection. And if it’s not there, there’s nothing either of you can do to create it. But if it is there, even in the presence of the person you least desire to share it with, there’s nothing you can do to make it go away.
Most people settle for something close to that magic, but in the end, at the very center of your soul, it will never be enough. I’ve experienced that “something close”, and I’ve also experienced the “magic”. And there was something about the “magic” that overrode every rule I’d ever set in place… with Dashmarion.
Wassup? I’m Dash, known by many as the arrogant TV lawyer who despises love in every form. And I’d agree with most of that. It’s basically my job as a divorce attorney to be the devil’s advocate while couples sever a promise they made to God and whoever else stood witness, to stay together forever no matter what. But that’s not realistic. Sometimes things get rough–irreconcilable if you wanna use legal jargon. And when it does, I’m there to neatly arrange the division.
For a long time, after watching the ending of so many unions, I was convinced that romantic relationships were nothing more than the beginning of the end, and it wasn’t until someone called me on my sinister demeanor that I looked in the mirror and realized who I’d become. Spite was my initial reaction to being shunned all over social media by a woman who flaunted love around like a trophy, and used me as an example of what love was not. But quickly, and through an experience that could only be described as magical, I came to realize that I might have been going about this “love” thing all wrong. Stranger things have happened, but never to me… until Sydney.
