Perfect Pleasures (Bad Boys of Boulder) by Deborah Fletcher Mello
World famous MMA champion Zachary Barrett has returned to his home in Phuket, Thailand, and his elite training camp, Revolution. Thanks to his twin brother, a renowned pro trainer in Colorado, Zachary is primed and ready for his next title bout—but his toughest match may be with the sports journalist assigned to write an exposé on him. Not only is she gorgeous, she’s after a well-guarded secret that Zach soon realizes makes her off limits in every way…
It’s true that Kenzie Monroe has an ulterior motive for pursuing Zachary. The half-Asian beauty believes he’s connected to her estranged father, a former MMA fighter who disappeared years ago. And the more Zachary avoids her, the more determined she is—and the hotter their game of cat and mouse becomes…until they both surrender. But as lust, love, and friendship combine, Zachary knows he has to answer all of Kenzie’s questions—because outside of the ring, the heart makes the rules…
Being Fale: A Center City Story by Angelia Vernon Menchan
A STANDALONE CENTER CITY NOVELLA
Fale, what are you going to do now?” Melanie, Fale’s mom asked. Turning to face Melanie, Fale smiled, slightly.
“What every college educated woman does who just spent eighteen months in prison does…”
Melanie’s brow rose at her daughter’s words.
“Find a man?”
“Mom, that’s way down the list, right now, considering how I got there. No, my plan is to rebuild the life I lost. I went to prison for something I didn’t do and because of someone I cared about. I could have been there for fifteen years but thank God the truth came out and I’m free. I have my home, some money saved and soon an expunged record. I’ll be okay.”
Melanie stared at her daughter, trying not to allow her fear or worry to show. Everything had always come easy to Fale but she could see the experiences of the past two years on her. There was wariness about her that wasn’t there before. At the same time there was something stronger and more resilient.
Fale had never really lived in Center City, but that was where her grandparents were from and she had been left a home there. Her first intention was to sell it but when she drove down to see it she decided to keep and refurbish it. The home was moderately sized but in a great area filled with fruit and pecan trees, and surrounded by streams of water filled with bream and other fish. It was the perfect place to go after two horrendous years. She had grown up in Mobile, Alabama, attended Penn State in New Jersey and worked there for a few years before returning to Mobile three years earlier at thirty-five to run Reboot the Future, a huge fortune five hundred company, as the first African American woman president and the youngest ever before her life unraveled and imploded. Now, at thirty-eight and recently released from prison for a crime she didn’t commit, it was time to move on and away.

Then there’s the other Best, the one who has chosen to recast herself as an only child rather than confront the truth.
Ten years ago, on Christmas Eve, Best and her two older brothers took a shortcut over a frozen lake. When the ice cracked, all three went in. Only Best came out.
