All I Want for Christmas (The McKinnon Brothers Book 1)

Cassandra Baines almost has it all: a flourishing career as one of the youngest English Lit assistant professors at NYU, an apartment in a city she adores, and a close circle of lifelong girlfriends that are like sisters. The only thing she doesn't have is someone special to share it with. She's been married to her work since Sean McKinnon broke her heart seven years ago.

Musician and bar owner Sean McKinnon keeps busy - too busy for a love life. He blew it with Cassie all those years ago, and no one has held a candle to her since.

But then one fateful night, of all the people in New York City, Cassandra walks into his bar, and he's drawn to her as strongly as ever. She wants nothing to do with him, but he's not going to give up so easily.

Get Lucky (Lucky in Love Book 1)

What happens when you wake up in a hotel suite next to a gorgeous naked man with absolutely no memory of the past twelve hours?

I guess it's true what they say. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Or at least I hope it stays here. The Romantic Style convention was meant to be a weekend of raucous fun with friends, sun, and enough poolside margaritas to forget about my ex. But now, instead of meeting my fans and signing books, I'm stuck with cocky divorce lawyer Nate Wexler. He's arrogant, infuriating, and I can't keep my hands off of him. Judging by the state of our hotel room, last night was wild. I just wish I could remember it.

A pair of matching tattoos. A cheap wedding veil. A half empty box of glow in the dark condoms.

What the hell just happened?

This Christmas (Holly Point Book 1)

Jake Killen's career in professional hockey has brought him many rewards on and off the ice, but returning to New York brings back a flood of memories. When he sees Sabrina again, he discovers that he didn't just run away from her ten years ago, but also from their unborn child.

Christmas in New York

Book 1: This Christmas by Jeannie Moon

Book 2: All I Want for Christmas by Jennifer Gracen

Book 3: A Light in the Window by Jolyse Barnett

Book 4: Goodness and Light by Patty Blount

Yuri: Greek. Biker. Billionaire.

His name was Yuri Athanas.

They called him the golden boy of the Afxisi, a college org during the day and an underground racing club at night.

Like his brothers, Yuri was rich, powerful, gorgeous, and devastatingly sexy.

Unlike his brothers, Yuri did not leave a trail of broken hearts behind him.

Yuri was the angel amidst all the other Greek devils, they said.

I liked hearing that about him. It gave me hope that when we do meet again, he would remember his promise, and he would keep it.

He would take one look at me and he wouldn't mind that I wasn't...okay.

He wouldn't mind I wasn't...normal.

If he was everything I prayed he would be, he'd take one look at me and love me, like he had promised.

Royal Mistake

Some princes are charming. Others are assholes.

I've spent most of my career writing tabloid articles about the royals of Montovia, and Prince Andrew, the heir to the throne, was always the one that intrigued me most. He's so guarded, so mysterious...so ridiculously attractive.

And then I met him. And I found out he's the most arrogant, smug, infuriating man to ever live.

He also desperately needs my help.

There are three things I know for sure. First, Prince Andrew has a secret. Second, he'll do anything to keep it a secret. And third, in spite of how infuriating I find him, I can't help being incredibly attracted to him.

This is Part One of a six-part contemporary romance serial by bestselling authors Renna Peak and Ember Casey. This episode ends with a cliffhanger.

The Rules (A Fun and Games Story)

Rule #1: Never discuss our arrangement with anyone.



When you make a deal with a stripper, there are bound to be some rules. I get that. But this first one made me chuckle. It was like Fight Club (you know, "the first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.") Except in our version, there was sex...and a few other things that I'd never heard of.

Truthfully, I never intended to befriend a stripper named Tash, or agree to her crazy plan. But when you're batting zero-for-a-million and there's no relief in sight, the situation becomes pretty damn desperate. See, I was in a terrible dry spell--no, scratch that. I was in a freaking drought.

Tash said she could help...if I gave her seven days and followed her rules

.

So what exactly did she have in mind, you ask? Read on, I'm getting to that part...

*The Rules, a stand-alone prequel, can be read as an introduction to the bestselling Fun and Games Series, or to learn more about this alpha hero at any time during the series.*
