Undone By You by Kate Meader
USA TODAY bestselling author Kate Meader brings her signature “steamy sex scenes, colorful characters, and riveting dialogue” (RT Book Reviews) to this novella in the Chicago Rebels series, following the general manager of the Rebels as he scores with one of his players off the ice.
Dante Moretti has just landed his dream job: GM of the Chicago Rebels. And screw the haters who think there should be an asterisk next to his name because he’s the first out managing executive in pro hockey. He’s earned the right to be here and nothing will topple him off that perch—especially not an incredibly inconvenient attraction to his star defenseman, Cade “Alamo” Burnett. Cade has always been careful to keep his own desires on the down low, but his hot Italian boss proves to be a temptation he can’t resist. Sure, they both have so much to lose, but no one will ever know…
As Dante and Cade’s taboo affair heats up off the ice and their relationship gets more and more intense, they’ll have to decide: is love worth risking their careers? Or is this romance destined to be forever benched?
Note: this is a long-ish novella of approximately 40,000 words set in the Chicago Rebels world.

Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid
There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson):
1) She’s determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.
Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece.
Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought?

Take A Chance (Be A Doll spin-off novella) by Stephanie Witter
Ever since my brother brought Chance Atwood home during their freshman year in college, I’ve been in love with him. I couldn’t explain it or find a way to silence my stupid heart.
I’ve ignored those feelings for years, but watching Chance pick up a woman at my brother’s very unconventional wedding told me that I couldn’t keep on inflicting this kind of heartbreak on myself.
When a date with another man failed to make me forget the searing blue eyes I daydreamed of on a daily basis, I realized I had to take matters into my own hands by putting an end to this and see if my hopes were as ridiculous as I feared.
It was time to either give wings to my little heart or shatter the damn thing.
When Megan Grimes, my best friend’s little sister, told me she loved me it was the single most insane moment of my life. It beat the day her brother announced his plan to “purchase” a wife.
Like any self-absorbed man who had never noticed a friend’s sister before, I handled it poorly.
But the trouble was, I couldn’t forget Megan’s soft eyes, the pain I inflicted her and more than everything, her beauty stunned me.
When she came back after fleeing the city, I had to see her, talk to her… and kiss her.
As she consumed me more and more, I should have come clean to her brother, but he wasn’t the most sympathetic man there was, and I owed him everything.
Conflicted like never before, I risked losing my very heart, the one thing that had no price tag, for a lifestyle I had thought was everything.
Megan took a chance; it was time Chance did the same.

To the Fall by Prescott Lane
You know the story.
Boy meets girl, they fall in love, two kids, white picket fence.
This isn’t that story.
This is more like…
Man meets woman. Man sleeps with woman.
Man meets another woman, sleeps with her.
And so on. You get the idea.
I own a small boutique hotel in New Orleans, the Kingston. I’ve seen men do some stupid stuff in the name of the woman they love, or at least the woman they love for the night.
That’s not me. I’m always in control. You’d be surprised how much you can get away with on just good manners and a smile. It’s the only way to keep my secrets safely locked away.
And my smile hides a lot. Until her.
She turns me down flat. Playing hard to get is my favorite game. It’s the thrill of the chase.
Only problem is, I think it’s me that’s getting caught.
Only You by Melanie Harlow
Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I’ve seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall—a different one every time—and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I’m looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after.
As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there’s no such thing.
As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.
We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we’re watching 007 flicks together, and I’ll admit—he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says “I’ll come back for her” and he begs me for help, I can’t turn him down.
But it’s a mistake.
Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there’s a chance for us.
I don’t want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.
I want to be the one he asks to stay.

Limelight (NSB, #4) by Alyson Santos
A genius, an underachiever.
I’m the song, the voice, the passion, the pain.
I am failure.
I do music because it’s what I am, but sometimes that’s not enough.
A slave to my nature, I wait for it to show mercy and drop a gift in my lap.
Because the music chose me.
I’m its victim not its gift.
She destroyed my career.
Ruined my life.
Pushed me from the shadows and exposed my lies.
She’s the fire that destroys lesser men,
and now her flames are aimed at me.
She loves to watch me burn, but the part we never saw coming?
Sometimes it takes a fire to ignite a spark
And slay the darkness.
The Sinner by Heather C. Leigh
Unlike my last name, St. Clair, no one would ever call me a saint. In fact, fans of my NHL team, the Atlanta Comets, call me “The Sinner.” According to my sealed juvenile records and the various women I’ve used and discarded, it’s not far off the mark. Doesn’t bother me what they think. I’ve never had a reason to change.
Until the day I spotted the hot blonde in the stands, pounding her hand on the plexi, loudly cursing me out. I didn’t know anything about her, not even her name, but I did know one thing… she was going to end up in my bed, preferably tied to it.
I like danger. Love the rush I get when I do something I shouldn’t. Mostly to get under my overprotective brother, Rocco’s skin. So when Rocco’s biggest NHL rival and new teammate, Sebastien St. Clair, approached me with a proposition, how could I say no?
My plan was flawed from the beginning, but I couldn’t have ever predicted I’d develop feelings for the man they call The Sinner. It’s not like I could act on them. Rocco would kill us both if he ever found out what we did.
But when an unexpected surprise spins my world off its axis, I have to make the most difficult decision of my life.

The Swedish Prince by Karina Halle
**A standalone romance inspired by the classic film, Roman Holiday**
I never believed in fairy-tales.
Never held out for Prince Charming.
Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-three.
Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep.
At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich.
But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade.
Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill.
He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.
Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.
I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.
I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.
When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle?
Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?
– The Swedish Prince will be available on iBooks/Nook/Kobo on March 19th and 20th ONLY
– The Swedish Prince will have a live release on Amazon KU on March 22nd
