Confined Spaces

by Renee MacKenzie

Andie Waters spends her days pulling waste samples for environmental testing and at night, she tends bar at The Cave, a popular hangout for straights in a small Georgia town. Serial monogamy has grown stale for her, so she’s content working to pay off her debts and hanging out with her old hound dog. Or so she thinks, until a beautiful lesbian drops by The Cave.Andie suspects her involvement with the woman will be only temporary. Little does she know no part of her life will be left untouched.

Kara Travis likewise anticipates nothing more than a brief fling upon meeting Andie, especially given her reputation as both a personal ice princess and a corporate hatchet wielder for Royal Environmental. What luck to find a hot lesbian bartender in nowhere rural Georgia.

Andie and Kara spend a passionate weekend together and find that their notions of no strings attached are far from accurate. Their supposed short-term ideal diversion of a commitment-free romp hits a major complication when they come face-to-face with one another at Royal Environmental’s offices Monday morning.

While carrying out her duties, Kara discovers crimes being committed by and against Royal Environmental employees. Will Kara be forced to shut down the Georgia Division of the company? If she does, Andie will lose her job. Worse yet, Kara may lose Andie before she’s really even sure she’s got her.


London Holiday

by Miranda MacLeod

Available in Kindle Unlimited

When a struggling journalist meets a runaway princess, will it be the story of the century or the love of a lifetime?

Jordan is an American journalist living in London, but when her newspaper is sold to an infamous tabloid king, she has one week to produce a sensational tell-all article, or she’s out of a job—and out of the country. When a runaway princess nearly falls into her lap, it seems like the answer to her prayers.

Abby was a typical California girl until a twist of fate turned her into Princess Abigail, the heir to the throne of her father’s kingdom. When presented with an opportunity to escape her royal duties for a night out on the town while on an official state visit to London, she seizes the chance. But when she’s rescued by the woman of her dreams, she begins to doubt that she can ever return to royal life again.

As their madcap adventure carries them through the streets of London, both Jordan and Abby suspect they’ve found their perfect match, but if the secrets they are hiding are exposed, will their relationship survive?


Symphony in Blue

by MJ Duncan

Available in Kindle Unlimited

It was just supposed to be a working weekend in Maui and not anything remotely life-altering, but all that changes the moment Gwen Harrison holds a hotel elevator for Dana Ryan. Beautiful and charming, Dana is a breath of fresh air that Gwen is helpless to resist—something she dearly regrets when their whirlwind weekend is over and reality sets back in. The course of true love is notorious for being anything but smooth, but the truths and consequences of an inauspicious beginning such as theirs are enough to put that old adage to the ultimate test.
