Hey Girl! Check out these new releases from November 20th-26th.
A Lifetime With You (Falling for a Rose Book 5) by Stephanie Nicole Norris
It was the season that brought families together, for trick or treating, and Thanksgiving dinners. But for Octavia Davenport, this season symbolized an era in her life when she lost everything. For years, Octavia was alone living a moderately single life, but then she met the owner of Rose Security Group, and suddenly things began to change. A blossoming friendship evolved and with it came an unrestrained indulgence to connect with him on every level. Desire had never stirred her until him, and Octavia didn’t want to deny herself what she so hungrily craved.
As the head honcho of the Midwest’s preeminent security firm, Jonathon Alexander Rose is known for his commanding persona. Although his reputation precedes him, Jonathon would rather live his days absent from the limelight, with his sexy audacious best friend, Octavia. His fiery passion for her has been Jonathon’s secret until he can no longer stand to be on the sidelines. When he decides to go after what he wants, nothing will stand in his way.
The Falling for a Rose series follows each member of the Rose family as they explore this thing called love. However, each book is just as enjoyable if read as a standalone as it is if read in the series order.

To Take (Crimson Trails Book 4) by B. Love
Zen Mitchell was in absolutely no rush to get married. It didn’t matter how frantically her parents searched for her husband, Zen found contentment and peace in her life of singleness. That may have had a lot to do with how fulfilling her friendship was with Cason.

It isn’t until Cason is prepared to fully commit himself to Shantae that his parents bless him with his betrothal box. His promised wife? Zen Mitchell – Cason’s best friend.
