The final book in Cherise Sinclair’s electrifying Sons of the Survivalist series does not disappoint one bit. It’s the story of a young woman who, after escaping the grips of her abusive husband and his fanatical militia group, finds herself building a new life for her and her son in a small town in Alaska, with the help of a scarred, tattooed ex-mercenary and his family. Both main characters are survivors of physical and sexual abuse, and as they slowly fall in love, they help each other overcome and heal their emotional wounds, too. As always, Sinclair approaches difficult topics with sensitivity and thoughtfulness, sweeping us off our feet with a deeply romantic, gripping, richly atmospheric tale that keeps us on our toes until the very end.

Kicking off a brand new small town series, this is the story of Winslow Covington—Quincy, Montana’s new chief of police—who is determined to prove herself to the community and show them she didn’t earn her position because her grandfather is the mayor. And apparently, all she has to do is earn favour with the town’s founding family, the Edens. Unfortunately, her one-night stand with their eldest son could throw a wrench in her plans. Griffin Eden is insufferable, arrogant, keeps reminding her that she’s an outsider, and Winslow does her best to avoid him, but when a woman is found dead on Eden property, the two of them have no choice but to cross paths again and again. Devney Perry is a consistent powerhouse in the small-town romance subgenre, delivering well-layered, emotionally charged stories that grip you from the start, and this series promises to be Perry at her best. We are kept guessing until the very end, and I’ll be honest with you, I never saw the twist coming. A must-read.

Karen Booth returns to the beauty circles of Manhattan with another ‘over-40 romance’ showing us it’s never too late to find true love in life. 42-year-old Brooklyn Monroe’s professional life continues to flourish, but her love life is a complete fail. With no man in her life, she knows that her dreams of motherhood will remain just that unless she is willing to do it on her own, but then an in-office joke gets accidentally sent to thousands of men all across the country asking them to get her pregnant, and the only way to make her PR nightmare go away is by doing a soul-baring interview on national TV. Enter talk show host Alec Trakas, the silver fox fantasy of millions of women and Brooklyn’s ex-boyfriend. Fate has thrown them back together. Sparks are flying. But is the timing finally right? As my own years begin to add up, I find myself gravitating more and more towards stories like these, and this book gave me ALL the feels.

After falling in love with her beautiful writing in The Widow of Rose House, I knew that I would read any book that Diana Biller ever wrote, especially one set in that same world. In her new novel, she takes us to 1870s Paris, France with a story of first loves and second chances. Amelie St. James, prima ballerina of the Paris Opera Ballet, has turned herself into a living saint in the eyes of the public in order to protect the life she has struggled to build for her and her younger sister. But when ghosts of women she once knew come back to haunt her, and then her first love reappears in her life looking as devastatingly handsome as ever, Amelie has no other choice but to let him help her. Soon, old feelings reignite, dark memories from their shared past are brought to the surface, and the young lovers must decide once and for all whether there is a future for them, even with their lives an ocean apart. Biller brings a familiar gothic feel to a thrilling new setting, and I loved every second of it.

DARK ROMANCE

A fatal bond that was never meant to be.

Marcella gave Maddox the impossible choice, and he chose her.
Still, she wonders if Maddox is ready to commit to a relationship, or if he’s scared of losing the uninhibited freedom his biker lifestyle offered him.

All his life Maddox knew who his enemies were, but suddenly he’s at a loss whom to trust. Will he ever find a place in Marcella’s life and family, or will old companions give him a new home and purpose?

Can enemies ever truly become lovers if the odds are against them?

This is the second part of Maddox and Marcella’s love story and it is not a standalone.

CLOSE PROXIMITY + SMALL TOWN

Remi Carter has survived her fifteen minutes of fame and is putting LA in her rearview mirror. As a former reality show contestant, she’s trading staged expeditions and faked wilderness tours for real adventures. Only one fluke storm in Glacier National Park has her stranded with a handsome man, and adventure takes on a whole new meaning.

Seth King is as rugged and sexy as he is annoyed to be trapped with Remi. Probably because she ghosted him at the local bar not three days ago. But she’s got her reasons for ditching him, and twenty-four hours in an abandoned Montana cabin with the wildlife biologist isn’t nearly enough time to explain.

As tempting as he is by firelight, she’s been burned too many times.

Except one day together and suddenly her travel van doesn’t hold as much appeal. The open road feels lonely. Remi’s about to learn that shelter is more than a safe place to weather a storm.

Shelter might just be the man himself. If he can give her a reason to stay.

This is the second full-length story in the Heroes of Big Sky series of standalone novels with interconnected characters, part of the Big Sky world and all about the men in uniform in Cunningham Falls.

ROMANTIC SUSPENSE

Life works in mysterious ways. Jameson Force Security has just received notice of a disavowed CIA agent in need of rescue in Central America. My blood runs cold when I learn that agent is none other than Greer Hathaway—my former fiancée.

Having gone our separate ways more than a decade ago, I still have bitter feelings toward Greer and the demise of our relationship. Those feelings don’t change the fact that I loved her more than anything, so I’m on the next flight out to embark on a rescue mission. Besides, Greer once saved my life, so now it’s time to return the favor and put her firmly in my past.

Face-to-face for the first time since ending our engagement, Greer and I are left with not only anger, unanswered questions and regrets, but also the undeniable chemistry we apparently still have. Will the promise of a new future together be enough, or will the same obstacles tear us apart again?

This is the eighth book in the Jameson Force Security series of standalone novels with interconnected characters.

UNEXPECTED PREGNANCY

I never thought of myself as dad material.
Until my one-night stand showed up in my small Alaskan town five months pregnant.

But I don’t shy away from responsibility. First, because I’m a Greene and not to boast but we’re kind of a big deal in Sunrise Bay. Second, I’m the Sheriff.

I couldn’t have predicted how protective I’d become for the safety of her and my unborn baby to the point of asking her to move in with me and be my roommate.

Just when I think I have the situation under control, another surprise knocks me over, but it only spurs me to double down.

I’ll be the first to admit, I didn’t think it through. Somewhere between the dinners, the TV show binging, the doctor appointments, and me walking in on her naked, lines blurred.

In what feels like warp speed, my bachelor for life status is in jeopardy and I’m fighting for the most important thing of all—my family.

This is a standalone novel in The Greene Family series.

SPORTS ROMANCE

Rex “TW” McMurtry’s perpetual single-hood wouldn’t bother him so much if all his ex-girlfriends didn’t keep marrying the very next person they dated, especially when so many of those grooms are his closest friends. He may be a pro-football defensive end for the Chicago Squalls, but the press only wants to talk about how he’s always a groomsman and never a groom. Rex is sick of being the guy before the husband, and he’s most definitely sick of being the best man at all their weddings.

Bartender Abigail McNerny is the gal-pal, the wing-woman, the she-BFF. She’s dated. Once. And once was more than enough. Privy to all the sad stories of her customers, ‘contentment over commitment’ is her motto, and Abby is convinced no one on earth could ever entice her into a romantic relationship . . . except that one guy she’s loved since preschool.

The guy who just walked into her bar.

The guy who doesn’t recognize her.

The guy who is drunk and needs a ride home.

The guy who has a proposition she should definitely refuse.

This is the first book in the all-new Three Kings series of standalone novels with interconnected characters.

That’s right. She’s stunning and the worst bartender I’ve ever seen.

I have never felt more alive or wanted anyone more than I want her.
When it’s time for me to head on my annual pre-season boys trip, I barely let her go.
It’s been a week and I can’t stop thinking about her.

Except it isn’t home, and the drama surrounding the biggest K-pop group in the world, SWT, is consuming my every moment.

Everything I do is wrong: wrong clothes, wrong honorifics, wrong manners.
Till the leader of SWT takes pity on me.
But pity is dangerous when it comes from someone as beautiful as him.

Every SWT member is gorgeous, perfect, and cultivated to be an idol… lethal to a girl’s heart.
And sanity.
But fame plus a perfect face and voice don’t equal an easy life. As their comeback nears, the stakes rise higher.
Suicide watch…
Angry fans…
Threats…

All I want to do is survive.
But the price for survival might mean losing my heart.
And like a character in a K-drama, I’m not sure if there will be an actual happily ever after…
Or simply a lesson learned.

BEST FRIEND’S BROTHER + SMALL TOWN

How can Ava resist her best friend’s brother when she’s crushed on him since childhood?

I didn’t think Alex could get any hotter, but his time at med school was good to him.
Dirty blond hair. A bit of scruff across his chiseled jawline. And a body beneath those scrubs that makes me think all sorts of naughty things.

Alex seems to be utter perfection… and he barely notices I exist.

Or so I thought. Lately, everywhere I look he’s there. Renting a room in my bed and breakfast. Devouring my pastries. Wanting to talk every morning over coffee. Is it possible my lifelong crush finally sees me as more than his little sister’s best friend?

This is a standalone novel in the Annapolis Harbor series.

BILLIONAIRE ROMANCE

I swore no one would ever have that kind of power over me again…

Elijah Banks is a textbook playboy. On the outside, he was cut from the perfect mold—stunning good looks, beachside mansion, secretive job, sexual notoriety. On the inside, he’s bitter and hurt and has sworn to never be the victim of a lying, cheating, using woman again.

Hannah Farsey is the family good girl. Not but choice, but by fate’s design. When she becomes Elijah’s houseguest and obvious object of his desire, she’s determined to not let a childhood nightmare be the narrative of at least one relationship in her life. But when your secret is this big…your burden this heavy…fate doesn’t hand over control so easily. A lesson Hannah’s about to learn the hard way.

Will this too-good-to-be-true man’s overwhelming and all-consuming feelings for her go the distance while she endures more upheaval in her life? Or will he cut bait and run and prove Hannah was just another one of Elijah’s Whims?

This is the seventh book in the Shark’s Edge series.
