Hey Girl! Check out these new releases from September 26th-October 2nd!
It’s Love She’s After by Bettye Griffin
From author Bettye Griffin comes a new “Romance in the Real World” love story about redemption and second chances…
After a scandal of her own making nearly blew up her career, TV reporter Wendy Ward’s career is back on track, albeit in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a much lower ranked market than her previous Chicago. Her love life has picked up as well, with a promising new romance with Jermaine Thomas, whose success at writing, producing, and directing has made him a hot Hollywood property. Wendy is determined not to repeat the mistakes she’s made in the past, and when Jermaine asks her to be at his side during a difficult time in his personal life she feels she’s getting closer to the lasting relationship she craves…
Her notoriety has boosted the ratings, and she is assigned to work closely with news producer Terone Copeland on a series of special reports. What Wendy doesn’t know is that Terone has had a crush on her for years…and when, suddenly and without warning her relationship with Jermaine cools, she finds herself wondering if there’s still a chance for her to find the love she’s been chasing for so long…
Note that readers are given the option of stopping at the happily-ever-after ending, or continuing on to read a bonus scene that contains a cliffhanger that sets the stage for the next book (and read the first chapter from that book).

He’s angry at the world—and butting heads with family friend Dr. Tarah Boudreaux. Yet the ambitious neurosurgeon’s unwavering encouragement sparks an intimacy that blindsides them both.
The Nicholas that Tarah met before the accident had wealth, fame and charm. All of that pales in comparison to the driven, determined man she’s falling for now.

But with a jealous rival in the mix, Nicholas must be willing to make the ultimate play, or lose a love he had never dreamed of finding…
Places in My Heart (The Grays of Los Angeles) by Sheryl Lister
He’s got all the right moves
Omar Drummond is a pro football superstar with a body that’s a pure work of art. But Morgan Gray is forbidden to act on their chemistry, or repeat their impulsive kiss. Proving her worth as a sports agent means securing the notorious celebrity as a client, not a lover. Yet between flowers, sweet notes and heady hotel interludes, Omar is shamelessly seducing her…
Other agents—and exes—have tried using Omar as a meal ticket, and he’s closed himself off from emotional entanglements. With Morgan, it’s a whole new playbook. Smart and tough, she can negotiate a contract and turn him on all in one go, and he craves more. But in matters of trust, he’s just fumbled badly. To win her, he has to show her the man he can be away from the pitch and the limelight, and hope that this time they’re both playing for keeps.
