THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US
by Kiera Marks

Also available in Kindle Unlimited
Romance

Stuck in the friend zone, Madison’s used to Lacey keeping her at arm’s length, but as the summer draws to a close, Madison struggles with the kiss her best friend’s determined to forget. Of course, Lacey dragging her into a lingerie shop and holding her hand doesn’t help. If anything, Lacey’s unusual behavior ever since that night at the lake house confuses things even more.

Madison promised to keep their kiss to herself. She promised to never bring it up again.

But the funny thing about trying to hold back the truth is that it always has a way of coming out.

Of course, having a romantic outburst for your best friend right before she goes off to college probably isn’t the best idea.

Especially not when that friend’s moving halfway across the state to pursue their dream.

The Distance Between Us is a new adult lesbian romance with a HEA and no cliffhangers.

 

LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
by Becky Harmon

Romance

Attorney Jemini Rivers never planned to return to her childhood home in Riverview, the town that bears her family name. Being called back to deal with the house and property left to her after the death of her grandmother brings all the feelings of hurt and betrayal she had spent years pushing aside. She stopped caring about the people and the town long before she even became an adult.

Deputy Steph Williams grew up in Riverview and has given her heart and soul to the people and the town. She wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else. She also gave up on the hope that Jemini would return many, many years ago…or did she?

 

THE SWEET SPOT
by Jessica Pots

Also available in Kindle Unlimited
Romance

After travelling across state, Temperance finds herself in a new town and with a little girl to feed by her side, she needs a job. When she wanders into a small, locally-owned bakery to inquire about an opening advertised in the window, she meets Gwen.

Gwen is a thirty-something divorcee who decided to give up her lucrative career and start her own business. But little do people know, her business is failing and she has no clue how to revive it, until Temperance comes along.

Temperance tries her best to hide the real reason she’s put down roots in a place far different than where she’d ever choose to live and far away from home, where she left everything she loves behind for the little girl who holds her heart. Sooner rather than later, Temperance knows that with decisions come consequences, ones she may not be willing or ready to accept.

Two women. One tiny bakery. One precocious little girl. Will cupcakes keep them together?

WARNING: This novel contains strong language and strong sexual content. Intended for 18+ years and above.

 

COLETTE
by R.D. DeLisle

Romance

In this sequel to Miranda, we follow Colette to Paris, France, leaving behind the comforts of her closest friends and the secluded world she created for herself. She and her estranged sister, Claire, have inherited an apartment that Colette promises to help refurbish. She has the option to buy it herself and stay in Paris, or sell it and split the money with her sister.

A series of unforeseen events help Colette make that decision as she is confronted by ghosts of the past (including a history of abuse at the hands of her sister’s husband), distractions of the present (embodied in the very alluring Lissa), and possibilities for the future. Follow her as she determines which direction to take, what she’s really made of in her quest to find her authentic self, and where she belongs in the world.

The Inquisitio opposes these mages, who have organized themselves within the Society for Psychical Defense. The world of magic is shaken by the awakening of a wild mage, a woman capable of manipulating the Veil itself. She has the power to either eradicate the Inquisitio or rob the mages of their abilities. Only one side can win and it will be the side that gets to the wild mage first.

She’s stuck in London while she shares her body with the spirit of the long-deceased medium Madame Petrovna Stravinsky. The only support she has in her new life is Alena Senna, her attendant, whose job it is to keep Claire’s body and mind in one piece during the course of her servitude.

FORE PLAY
by Julie Cannon

That’s the exact situation high-profile executive Leigh Marshall finds herself in when she falls hard for her golf pro, who also happens to be an ex-con. Her board of directors haven’t gotten the memo regarding workplace equality and who she sleeps with is still more important than her stellar qualifications.

Peyton Broader has no interest in anything other than keeping her head down, reporting to her parole officer, and getting her life back. Oh yeah, and making up for nine years of celibacy. The last thing she needs is to lose her job or get sucked into other people’s drama, no matter how hot and tempting the woman is. So why can’t she stay away from Leigh?
