ROMANCE

 

THE LOVE PROJECT

by TB Markinson & Miranda MacLeod

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Can a long shot bring love to a couple of lonely hearts?

Joni Fisher is facing economic ruin. The once successful advice column she runs with her mother is on the brink of cancellation, and it’ll take a miracle to turn things around. Joni’s last-ditch effort to save her job and preserve her mother’s legacy is The Love Project, a web series she’s developing to bring the Help Me Henrietta franchise alive for a new generation. All she needs is a willing victim…er, star.

Hope Alvarez dreams of falling in love, but she’s always suspected she’s different. Physical attraction is a foreign language to her. After her only prospect for a meaningful relationship falls through, Hope has to face the fact that she’s completely hopeless when it comes to love. Can her favorite advice columnist, Henrietta, save her from a lonely future?

As the series gets underway, fans swoon for the lovable yet unlucky Hope, and they’re not the only ones. Joni is smitten, too. But she’s been down that road before, vowing never again to fall for a straight woman who will keep her forever in the friend zone. Except, what if she’s been reading the situation all wrong? Helping Hope make sense of her identity might save Joni’s job, but will it also bring her love?

Best-selling lesbian fiction authors TB Markinson & Miranda MacLeod have written a touching slow-burn romance about love striking when least expected. Read it today!

 

THE LAST TIME WE MET

What if you’re a nerdy med student and a womanizing rock star wants you as her next conquest—then leaves you totally humiliated.

Now fast-forward eleven years.

Sexy and magnetic, Australian rock star Austen Farleigh is at the height of her spectacular career. Her penchant for one-night stands is as famous as her many songs.

American Dr. Merritt Harrington now works for Doctors Without Borders and is at a crossroads in her life. Her last assignment in the Andes Mountains was harrowing, and her love life at a dead end. No one has been able to ignite even a tiny spark since Austen—damn her.

When they meet again in Australia, Merritt is desperate to keep Austen at arm’s length. But temptation whispers in her ear.

From the US to Peru to Australia and the highlands of Papua New Guinea, their desire for one another is on an uncontrollable collision course—with a force they may no longer be able to ignore.

 

HER PREGNANT RIVAL

Kapow: Book 4

by Renee Dahlia

Society expects them to be rivals, but what if the best revenge is love?

Fashion blogger JAMIE CLEVELAND only gets access to her trust fund when her father is happy with her actions. If it was just money, she’d walk away, but she desperately wants to keep her mother safe too. Obedience matters to him. When she gets pregnant, she learns that her lover Craig is married and she freaks out. Her family, especially her father, cannot find out. Desperate, she confronts Craig’s wife, and they argue. All is lost until she turns up at the hospital for an appointment and Craig’s ex-wife is her doctor.

When DR AMANDA AITKEN discovers her ex-husband, Craig, has been screwing a fashion blogger, she’s reminded why she filed for divorce. It’s one thing to believe that women shouldn’t be pitted against each other when a terrible man is to blame, but it’s another thing all together to see one of her husband’s fuck-buddies in person. But when Jamie arrives at the hospital for an appointment, she realises she can’t let her children’s half-sibling grow up alone. She invites Jamie to live with her and raise the baby along with her own two children.

Society expects them to be rivals, and neither of them expect that the best revenge on Craig is to love each other.

TODAY’S ANGEL by Kim Pritekel

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Kim Pritekel is here to share a story. Also, Kim is giving away 1 ecopy of Finding Faith. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Kim.

TODAY’S ANGEL

About six years ago, I was walking to the store, which was in a small strip mall. At one end was a used bookstore, and I saw an older woman, easily in her seventies or eighties, trying to pull about four tied grocery sacks full of books out of the backseat of her car.

I was about to walk by her, figured best to mind my own business, when something told me to stop. So, I doubled back and walked up to this woman, who was fairly skittish, and asked if I could help her. She said yes, so I grabbed all four bags of books and loaded myself up.

She led the way to the used bookstore, pulling the door open for me. I unloaded the bags on the counter inside and was about to leave when the old woman stopped me. She said words to me that I never forgot, and use, myself now:

“Everyday I look for an angel in my day. Today you were that angel.”

We can all be somebody’s angel every single day.

FINDING FAITH

by Kim Pritekel

Faith Fitzgerald thought that if she got an education and became a high-powered attorney in Manhattan, maybe—just maybe—she’d gain the attention and respect of her absentee father. Considering he was the only parent she had left after her mother’s suicide when Faith was just a child, she thought that’s what it would take.

She was wrong.

What she dreamed would be glamorous and satisfying turned out to be grueling and thankless. Since she wasn’t willing to play the game between the sheets, she was forced to stay in the cubicle jungle doing all the heavy lifting while the men got the credit and the rewards.

Deciding she is done, Faith packs up and, with the flip of the bird to the rearview mirror, leaves New York and heads home to Colorado. She has nothing there: no job, nowhere to live, no relationship with her father. Truth is, she barely has a relationship with herself.

On the drive home, she finds herself in Wynter, a tiny mountain town at the foot of the Rockies. Looking more like it belongs in a made-for-TV Christmas movie than on the map, Faith is utterly enchanted. When she tries her luck and buys a raffle ticket at Pop’s, Wynter’s charming café, her prize is far more than meets the eye—or the heart.

Enter Wyatt, a feisty, sexy southerner and waitress at Pop’s, who just happens to be married to a local sheriff’s deputy. All is not as it appears with the All-American boy and his Georgia peach.

A colorful cast of unforgettable and charming characters will teach the jaded attorney that sometimes to find yourself all you have to do is go back to the basics…and have a little Faith.

Katya Kovach, a refugee to Britain, knows all about death and grief. She saw her family shot in front of her and has never recovered from those dark memories. Now trained at London’s most prestigious childcare school, she’s happy as the nanny to Queen Georgina and Queen Bea’s children.

Clay is usually good-natured, but the rule-oriented Katya is not only a pain, but annoyingly beautiful, and they find themselves facing the awkward reality that everyone else is a couple except them while their every move is being filmed. Loss has defined both their lives, but guarding their hearts may prove to be the biggest heartbreak of all.

EROTIC ROMANCE

 

BODY LANGUAGE

by Renee Roman

Mika James is handsome, so what’s the problem if she uses her attributes to seduce rich women? There are worse ways to keep a roof over her head. After her latest lover calls it quits for a better offer and shows her the door by telling her she’ll never do anything of importance with her life anyway, Mika has a choice to make: keep searching for validation between the sheets or go back to college and prove she’s capable of more.

Professor Jennifer Long loves her job and she’s really good at it. Unfortunately, it’s the only thing she has under control. Her unrewarding yo-yo dieting and her mom’s unending suggestion that she lose weight because no one will want her the way she is has killed not only her confidence, but any belief she’s sexy.

Mika’s struggling with her coursework, but she isn’t keen on admitting she needs help, even if it’s from the beautiful Professor Long. When Mika realizes Jennifer could also use some tutoring—of the hands-on erotic variety—they strike a deal to help each other. If only their perfect sexy arrangement wasn’t so dangerous for their hearts.

Being stuck on a fifty-acre vineyard for over a century can be a bit mind-numbing, especially for Ruth, the resident ghost, who never wanted to be there in the first place. Fortunately, as time has passed, so has the ownership of the property, and if the three friends who now live in the old Victorian house are any indication, things are about to get much more interesting.

A NEAR-COMICAL RATIO OF CARS TO DRIVERS by Thea Landen

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Thea Landen is here to share a story. Also, Thea is giving away 1 ecopy of Hunting Astrid. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Thea.

A NEAR-COMICAL RATIO OF CARS TO DRIVERS

2020 was a tough year for so many people and, like many others, my family did not escape it without a great loss. Shortly before lockdowns started, my mother was diagnosed with brain cancer. After a brief, brutal fight, she passed away less than three months after the shocking diagnosis.

I won’t go into all the particulars here since, as I said, far too many people are familiar with not just the grieving process, but all the little details that sneak up on you. On the very long list of “stuff that needed to be dealt with,” there was one item I hadn’t given much consideration to beforehand: her car.

I have a car. My husband has a car. We have my old pre-kids car as a backup. My father had his car, a backup car, and wanted to replace his primary car with a new one. (An SUV, whereas my mother’s car was a small sedan.) We were approaching a near-comical ratio of cars to drivers. Seriously, that’s a lot of cars. We are also fortunate enough that any money made from potentially selling any of these cars wouldn’t really have an impact on our lives.

About a month after my mother died, a close friend of mine got into a car accident. No one was hurt, thankfully, but her car was totaled. She and her husband were hoping to buy a house soon; not only was money tight, they didn’t want to take on a new car loan at the exact same time as dealing with mortgage paperwork.

My parents had always known and liked this friend. I called my father and explained everything that had happened, ending with, “Do you think it would be possible for us to give her one of our extra cars that we’re not using?” My father has always been a notoriously kind and generous person, and didn’t even hesitate before giving his answer: “Sure!”

Finally, amidst all the terrible things happening in 2020, both on personal and global levels, I could give someone some good news. I called my friend, confirmed she still needed a car, and made my offer. She was thrilled, and after she asked a couple of obligatory questions, we had the following conversation:

“So, how much do you want for it?”

“Nothing. It’s an older car that nobody’s using.”

“…You can’t just give me a car.”

“Sure I can. Watch me.”

Getting all the paperwork in order took some time due to so much being shut down in our area, but I eventually got to hand over the keys and watch her drive away in her new-to-her car. I know my mother would have approved. Now that it’s 2021 and we’re rapidly approaching the one-year anniversary of her diagnosis, I hope I can continue spreading kindness and setting a good example for my own children, the way she would have wanted me to.

GOING BANANAS by Anna Ferrara

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Anna Ferrara is here to share a story. Also, Anna is giving away 1 ecopy of Snow White and Her Queen 2. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Anna.

GOING BANANAS

My partner’s parents come across as strict, no-nonsense and conservative so in the early weeks of our relationship, I was perpetually stressed when in their presence, ever worried they would one day catch wind of what was really going on between their daughter and I and break all hell loose. That, until one time at dinner, in passing, while sitting stiffly while on my absolute best behaviour, I told her mother I ate a single banana for breakfast every morning (it was minimalism and healthy-eating thing).

That night, my partner’s father handed her a bunch of bananas to take home with us. It wasn’t unusual because her parents were always giving her food and things to bring home with her but the next time she went over, she got another bunch of bananas. And the time after that, we got more bananas. Soon, it was like bananas every week. Then, a full year of free bananas. And another year after that. Even after my partner declared she never wanted to eat another banana ever again, we got bananas. In the almost decade since that first bunch of bananas, we have received over 400 bunches of bananas. Free. Weekly. All because I mentioned, once, that I ate bananas.

I still eat one banana every breakfast (because there seems to be no getting rid of them these days). But I’m no longer petrified of my partner’s parents. Nowadays when I think of them, the first thing that comes to mind is bananas. The next thing is kindness. And sometimes when I catch sight of my partner at home in pyjamas, I tell her she looks like a banana. Without fail, she will tell me I look like a banana too. We now call ourselves B1 and B2.

SNOW WHITE AND HER QUEEN 2

Before there was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, there were two other stories some preferred not to tell… One year after leaving the North behind, Queen Katherine and Princess Eirwen struggle with new troubles—a cinder dust covered apprentice who brings to Eirwen something Katherine can never give and an old acquaintance of Katherine who has taken to calling them “beasts”. When desire brings out the worst in all of them, Eirwen and Katherine have to seek creative ways to get to that happily ever after they once thought possible, before it slips out of their reach forever and always.

She was not one to believe the stories about magic returned and creatures from the tales people told were real. When werewolves harmed Cassidy and threatened David, she hunted them. Working with those she despised, loved, and were acquaintances, Isabella made sure the beasts understood it was better to leave the citizens of the town alone. Along the way, she realized her rage for Cassidy changed, turning into feelings she never expected. Learning to love her rival was a shock.

Cassidy’s life changed when she was attacked and left for dead in the forest near Isabella’s home. Spying on her rival never turned out how it did when a beast tore into her, leaving her in a clearing. Learning she was infected and had transformed into a werewolf, Cassidy found her place with Isabella, once she shared her love with her.

Being best friends with Isabella and Cassidy wasn’t easy. David was the peacekeeper between the two rivals. His need to heal drove him to become a nurse at the clinic in the town of Unknown. This didn’t change after Cassidy attacked him, turning him into a werewolf. He was the pack member who would make sure the two powerful women did not kill each other.

 

THRILLER / ROMANCE

 

OUTSIDE IN

by Breanna Hughes

Cali Evans is a survivor. Her life hasn’t been easy, but her late father raised her to be smart, tough, and dependent only on herself and her wits. On the eve of her 21st birthday she meets Owen Bray – a beautiful and intriguing young doctor who equally frustrates and captivates Cali. That fateful meeting inspires Cali to make a better life for herself.

The next day, hoping to make positive change, Cali hops a bus for the West Coast but never reaches her destination. Instead, she wakes up in an underground bunker with no recollection of how she got there. Upon her arrival, she learns that she’s one of just forty survivors of a fast-spreading environmental toxin and that human life outside of the bunker has ceased to exist.

Tired of the vague explanations and half-answers coming from the people in charge, Cali takes it upon herself to investigate the real reason why she’s there and begins to uncover the sinister truth.

Trigger Warning: Some violence.

Kindness

I grew up in a small town in Texas. There are benefits to a small town because you know everyone, but there are also detriments because you know everyone. Like maybe when your teenage antics could be considered questionable, but that’s another story.

As a teenager, getting your driver’s license was a big deal! But living in a small town at that time meant we didn’t have a full time driver’s license office. They were open three days a week in my town and then two days a week in a town thirty miles away.

My sixteenth birthday fell on a day the driver’s license office was closed in my town. My mom got me out of school that morning and drove me thirty miles so I could get my driver’s license on my birthday.

Then when we got back home, she let me take the car back to school. I remember being so thankful she’d do that for me and feeling so bad ass driving my car to school!

It isn’t such a big thing now, but it was everything back then to a small town girl trying to find her way. Trust me when I say there were times when she wasn’t my biggest fan and they were well deserved, but on that day she couldn’t have made my birthday happier.

Tess, a dedicated teacher and single mother focused on creating a stable life for her daughter, is immediately attracted to the handsome, cavalier Garet for all the wrong reasons. Everything about Garet says short-term, and Tess refuses to consider anything less than forever. She’s not about to give her heart away to someone she can’t count on.

Can Garet and Tess survive three months sharing the same classroom without killing each other…or falling in love?
