From USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters comes a heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat gripping, romantic suspense. I should’ve known she would ruin me the moment I saw her. Women like her are made to destroy men like me. I couldn’t resist her though. Given to me to start a war; I was too eager to accept. But I didn’t know what she’d do to me. That she would change everything. She sees through me in a way no one else ever has. Her innocence and vulnerability make me weak for her and I hate it. I know better than to give in to temptation. A ruthless man doesn’t let a soul close to him. A cold-hearted man doesn’t risk anything for anyone. A powerful man with a beautiful woman at his mercy … he doesn’t fall for her. *** Topics: new adult romance, women's fiction, women's romance, grey, buttons, dark mafia romance, romantic suspense, bad-boy romance, bad boy, dark, sexy, intense, alpha male, second chance romance, new york times, USA today, USA today bestseller, ebook, romance ebook, contemporary romance, romance series, best new ebook, emotional book, angsty ebook, angsty book, angsty books, forget me not, merciless, valetti, best free romance, romantic suspense, books like movies, wealthy, billionaire, romance for adults, award winning, obsession, possession, surrender, burn, pain, top romance reads, fifty shades, 50 shades, steel brothers, steel brothers saga, possessive, new release romance.

A STAND ALONE story in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend ------------- Nothing comes easy. You’ve gotta work for it. Matt Coleman always figured at this point in his life, he’d be settled down with a family. Since his ex split for the big city, though, no way will he give anyone else the chance to drop-kick his heart. Physical pleasure? Hell, yeah, he’ll take—and give—with gusto, but nothing more. Hope Meridan is working long hours to hold on to her new quilt shop, going it alone since her sister/business partner ran off. Sex? Right, like she’s got the time. Not that she doesn’t have the occasional dirty fantasy about Matt. Fat chance he’d dream of knocking boots with her—the younger sister of the woman who dumped him. Nope, she’ll just have to settle for friendship. Friends would be far easier if there wasn’t something combustible going on between them. And when casual interest starts to grow into something more, their tenuous bond strengthens in the heat of desire. But it may not survive the hurricane-force arrival of the last person either of them ever wanted to see again… Warning: Small-town rivals, men in pursuit and family meddling—in good and bad ways. Look for a cowboy who knows how to rope, ride and rein in a hell of a lot more than eight seconds of sheer bliss. Previously published in 2012

From the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series comes a moving and thought-provoking novel about a college team facing hard knocks on the ice and off. The Bayard College hockey team isn’t where Jacob Flass thought he’d be a season ago. He was a rising star in the Canadian major junior league, cruising toward a spot on an NHL roster—until a single disastrous night on the town brought it all crashing down. Now he’s out of options, except for playing well, studying hard, and staying away from the opposite sex. He’s not supposed to be flirting with the most intriguing woman he’s ever met. But how could he possibly stay away? Skylar Lynwood’s freshman year of college was a disaster. This semester she’s working hard to get back to the grades her parents want to see, and she’s dealing with her painful memories by doing volunteer work. There’s no place in Skylar’s life for parties, fun, and arrogant jocks—until Jacob melts her resistance with his easy charm and rugged smile. The deal he’s offering could be a win-win: a fake relationship that will keep him out of trouble and her secrets safe . . . if they can keep their hands off each other.

Ο γάµος της Τζόντι και του Τοντ βρίσκεται σε κρίσιµη στιγµή. Πολλά διακυβεύονται, συµπεριλαµβανοµένης της άνετης ζωής τους στο πανέµορφο διαµέρισµα στο Σικάγο δίπλα στο νερό, καθώς εκείνη και εκείνος προχωρούν µε ιλιγγιώδη ταχύτητα προς το κεντρικό γεγονός. Εκείνος ζει διπλή ζωή. Εκείνη ζει και αναπνέει την άρνηση. Εκείνος αποφασίζει να φύγει. Εκείνη δεν έχει τίποτα πια να χάσει.Μέσα από την εναλλαγή των φωνών, η Σιωπηλή σύζυγος µιλάει για έναν γάµο που διαλύεται, για ένα ζευγάρι που οδεύει προς την καταστροφή, για παραχωρήσεις που είναι αδύνατον να γίνουν, για υποσχέσεις που δεν πρόκειται να εκπληρωθούν... «Με την κοµψή και επιδέξια πένα της σκιαγραφεί τα αντιµαχόµενα ψυχολογικά πορτρέτα δύο εραστών που µετατρέπονται σε υποτιθέµενο δολοφόνο και άτυχο θύµα, σε µια ιστορία που κανείς δεν πρόκειται να ξεχάσει σύντοµα. Δεν µπορούσα να αφήσω το βιβλίο από τα χέρια µου». Elizabeth George «Το ανατριχιαστικό πορτρέτο µιας σχέσης που πήγε τροµερά λάθος. Μια ιστορία που κόβει την ανάσα και που θα σας κρατήσει πάνω από το βιβλίο µέχρι πολύ αργά τη νύχτα, ξάγρυπνους για πολλή ώρα ακόµα κι όταν φτάσετε στην τελευταία σελίδα». New York Times «Η ανάγνωση της Σιωπηλής συζύγου είναι µια αµαρτωλή απόλαυση!» Kate Atkinson «Σαν µικροσκοπική ρωγµή στο γυαλί του πεπρωµένου, η Σιωπηλή σύζυγος εξετάζει την έσχατη συντριβή ενός απολύτως πολιτισµένου γάµου. Έντονη, σαγηνευτική και απολύτως συναρπαστική, η πένα της Harrison προκαλεί τους χαρακτήρες της να ξεπεράσουν τα όριά τους και να βγουν σε έναν κόσµο όπου τα πάντα είναι πιθανά, ακόµη και ο φόνος». Elizabeth Brundage «ΥΠΕΡΟΧΟ… Καλύτερο από το Gone Girl της Gillian Flynn». Sophie Hannah
