“FIRST TIME LUCKY?”
By Natalie Anderson ~ buy now
Forced to grow up too quickly, Roxie skipped too many all-important ‘firsts’. Now, armed with a six-point checklist, she’s ready to get experiencing – starting with the big one – losing her ‘V’ plates!
A hunky doctor, Gabe Hollingworth, has moved in next door. He’s a one-night-only pro – and smoking hot! Perhaps he could help her out…?
Only Gabe wants to be more than just another tick on her ‘to-try’ list! He sets Roxie a challenge he’s sure she can’t accept: walking away from their insane chemistry…
“SAY IT WITH DIAMONDS”
By Lucy King ~ buy now
All that sparkles…
At thirty-five, Bella might be an expert on diamonds – but she’s still missing a big fat one on the third finger of her left hand. However, at least she has her successful jewellery business – with very interesting new client William Cameron, AKA the Duke of Hawksley, no less!
She’s expecting portly and chinless – but actually Will’s tall, dark and so distractingly good-looking it’s hard to concentrate on his jewels! More of a surprise: this weird chemistry between them is actually mutual.
Urgent… And it catches them completely unawares in a black London taxi…
All that glitters is not gold. All that sparkles isn’t diamond. All men who turn you on aren’t the real thing. But being cynical gets boring… Maybe it’s time for Bella to throw caution to the wind?

“WORKING WITH THE ENEMY”
By Susan Stephens ~ buy now
Heath Stamp was a very bad boy growing up. If there was a fight, he fought. If there was a woman, he took her to bed. If there was a sweet, innocent girl with big doe eyes—he ran a mile.
Bronte Foster-Jenkins sure isn't looking at him with big doe eyes anymore. Instead, she's shooting daggers in his direction. All grown up, Heath is rich, arrogant and ready to raze his family estate to the ground — even if Bronte will do anything to stop him. He'll do it with a glint in his eye and happily take her down with him. For, make no mistake, Heath Stamp has gone from bad…to irresistible!
