Hey Girl! Check out these new releases from April 26th-May 2nd.
An Unexpected Love (Heart of a Jameson Book 5) by Danielle Burton
It was an unwritten rule.
One that should’ve been easy to follow.
· Don’t mess around with your best friend’s little sister.
Especially not if your best friend happens to be your business partner.
Definitely not if his little sister is your employee.
But when it comes to Arizona Broussard, Xander is breaking all the rules.
Even those he set for himself.
It was supposed to be a summer job.
A favor to her brother.
What Arizona didn’t expect was the sparks that flew the moment she laid eyes on Xander Jameson.
Getting involved with him is a bad idea.
If her brother ever found out it would be a disaster.
Not to mention her sorta, kinda, maybe ex-boyfriend.
But resisting her boss isn’t an easy task.
What starts out as an innocent night quickly spirals into something neither of them expected.
Something About You by Reese Ryan
There is just something about sexy, confident Lita Woods that commands Trey Hampton’s attention the moment he encounters her. Until he discovers his son plans to marry her daughter and they’re both about to become grandparents.
Lita’s knee-jerk reaction to the news drives her daughter away. She’s left with no choice but to team up with the charming, handsome grandfather-to-be on their common goal of stopping this wedding.
When Trey invites Lita to join him and the kids at his beach house for the summer, their connection is too powerful to deny. And as they conspire to prevent their college-age children from derailing their futures-the way they once did-they find themselves falling in love.

When the new Lyric falls in love again, her past trickles in with an agenda.
Elijah Grant is a youth pastor for his father’s church. He loves working with the kids but being their pastor was not his calling.

Promise Kept by J. Nichole
Parker met Bailey Monroe in Hawaii, and he wanted her to fly out to London, Bali, and Dubai too.
There was just one problem, he was a traveling artist, a nomad of sorts. And she was not.
She had a business to run, a life to maintain.
He couldn’t stay, and she couldn’t go. Is their love strong enough to cross seas, and time zones?
Promise Kept is book three of The Dupree Boys series.
The Other Side of The Game: Diamond Lake Rattlers, Book 2 by Tiye Love
ALL HE KNOWS IS THE GAME, SHE TAUGHT HIM THERE’S MORE.
Zeke Powers, the best catcher in the Major Leagues, has been reckless too many times and is in danger of losing his baseball contract without the help of his sexy publicist, Jade Maxwell.
The woman he can’t (and doesn’t try to) resist.
Jade believes she has what it takes to change Zeke’s bad-boy reputation if she can just get him to be more open and believe that his personal triumphs are bigger than the game.
Recently divorced from an unfaithful husband, Jade is also wary of their alluring, soulful chemistry that Zeke is temptingly insistent on exploring. Always straightforward, Jade makes it clear to Zeke she doesn’t mix business and pleasure, especially with a handsome and charismatic athlete who has never been seen with the same woman twice. Undeterred by Jade’s reticence, he knows it’s only a matter of time before she succumbs to their magnetic attraction. After all, Zeke didn’t beat all odds to have a dream career as a professional ballplayer without persistence and patience.
And Jade Maxwell is so worth the wait.
