Release Day (giveaway plus excerpt):He's So Fine by Jill Shalvis

For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It's the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she's rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she's ever laid hands on.

Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to "save" him. In fact, he'd like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He's just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole's heart, or will it be the end of Olivia's days in little Lucky Harbor?
Review: I absolutely love reading about the Lucky Harbor series! The series always have so much passion and comedy that it makes the read so much enjoyable. We get to re…

Forever Starts Tonight by Roni Loren

The wait is over. They fell in love in Melt Into You, but that was only the beginning. Now New York Times bestselling author Roni Loren dials up the passion as three lovers reinvent the meaning of togetherness and find out if love is truly enough…

Two dominant men, one beautiful woman. Jace Austin knows he doesn’t have what you’d call a conventional relationship with Evan and Andre, but it works. Boy, does it work—until Evan starts acting strangely and Andre’s ex-fiancĂ©e pops back into his life, unbalancing a perfectly happy threesome.

So Jace plans a surprise getaway to a secluded mountain cabin for the three of them. And he knows exactly what he needs to do: give both his lovers a fantasy week they’ll never forget. And the possibilities for pleasure are endless. But when they get snowed in and the heat between them reaches a fever pitch, secrets come o…

What If by Rebecca Donovan

WHAT IF follows Cal Logan from childhood to college and is told through a series of flashbacks and memories from his core group of lifelong friends.  Including shy Nicole Bentley, Cal’s childhood crush who mysteriously moved away without any explanation right after their high school graduation.   Now away at college, Cal is shocked to see Nicole in the local coffee shop—except she’s not Nicole.

Nyelle Preston introduces herself to Cal and despite looking similar enough to Nicole to be twins; their personalities are nothing alike.  Where Nicole was reserved and shy, Nyelle is impulsive and outgoing.  Call is instantly attracted to her and feels a connection that he knows can’t be real.  Who is this young woman who looks so much like his lost friend but claims to be someone else?  And more importantly, what is she hiding?

WHAT IF is a story of first love, and loss but also these strong, enduring friendships that are such an integral part of growing up.

Once Upon A Dream by Kate Perry

Summer Welles wants the fairy tale.

The illegitimate daughter of Reginald Summerhill, the Earl of Amberlin, she listened to her mother's stories about the Summerhill girls all her life. In her mind, Summer was part of the stories too—living in the castle, wearing fancy dresses, and falling in love with Prince Charming.
Her wish came true. Mostly. She lives in the Summerhill mansion. She has stepsisters—nice ones who don't make her clean the chimney. She even has a magical wedding dress waiting for her special day. The only thing missing is the perfect man.
She knows exactly who he is, and she's going to confront him at the annual Midnight Masquerade Ball. What Summer didn't count on was mistaking a masked frog for her prince.
Once she kisses the mysterious man, he won't go away. And he's not sweet or charming or princely. He seems more interested in ravishing her rather than riding off into the sunset with her, and—worse—she's tempted to let him. Her fairy…
