Liv Chandler is running for her life, and the cops haven’t been able to do a thing to help. But there’s one man who makes her feel safe, no matter what…rugged charter boat captain Rafe Brodie.

"I am a huge fan of second chance romances and the way this story sets up does not disappoint."
"I was never really into the bad-boy. I’ve always preferred the nice guy. The one I could bring home to meet my parents. The one who is mature and stable and sweet and puts me first. That’s the kind of man I not only found for myself more than thirteen years ago, but he’s also the kind of guy I want to read about when I pick up a nice romance..."
"As a fan of Cecy Robson’s Weird Girls series, I was excited to sample something different from her and also read my first fighter romance novel. Sure, I like my vampires and shifters a tad violent, but this was a complete turnaround for me. I like to live on the wild side and I dove right in to the romantic arena..."

"Kat Latham returns to the world of rugby football in her London Legends series, this time with a second chance at love story between an man who has sacrificed everything including love for his career, and the one woman who might be more important than rugby TAMING THE LEGEND. I admit it, I’m a sucker for a story about two people rekindling their passion for each other and this book delivers. TAMING THE LEGEND is one of the most mature and emotionally satisfying romances that I have read in a long time."
Julia Tagan talks to bestselling author Sharon Sala about her new novella, COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS: "Yes, writers are a tad strange and I make no apologies for it."
"Fans of Emma Chase's Tangled series will enjoy this new series about three attorneys living, working, and playing in Washington D.C.

"Tawny Weber has a gift when it comes to writing about hot SEALs and the woman they fall for. A SEAL's PLEASURE picks up where A SEAL's Secret ends and boy does Weber not disappoint. I loved the banter and the amazing journey Weber takes them on to finding their happily ever after together."
"When I think of the Beautiful Bastard series, I think of funny, sometimes irritating, but always extremely hot and sexual heroes. But with BEAUTIFUL SECRET, Christina Lauren give us a somewhat reluctant hero who doesn’t know what he wants, doesn’t know how to say what he wants, and is somewhat afraid to do anything. Niall Stella was so not what I was expecting (especially given he was Max’s little brother), but his quirky English charm won me over just the same..."
"I am a big fan of the Copper Ridge series by Maisey Yates. The small-town community, the richly drawn characters, and the absolutely wonderful dialogue all come together to make these books immensely readable."

STILL THE ONE is the sixth book in Jill Shalvis’ Animal Magnetism series. This time around we get the story of Darcy and AJ...
"My core story is a simple one: Love Conquers All. I still believe that’s essentially what I’m trying to convey, but I often use redemption themes in order to do it. I love flawed characters, those who are challenged by more than just forces beyond their control, because they are far more real to me. I don’t know anyone who has lived a perfect life; regret is something we all face, which is why characters that are pitted against themselves are often the most complex and interesting..."
"This is my first non-paranormal by Gena Showalter and now I can not wait to get my hands on the rest of this series.

For a woman who loves to read about the terribly broken man who needs fixin’ THE CLOSER YOU COME is like manna from the heavens..."
