The Moments

by Nicole Pyland

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Bailey Sayers has a decision to make. That decision will impact her entire life. If she says something, she risks embarrassment and her heart. If she doesn’t say something, she may never know if Jenna Cabot feels the same way about her.

In Path I, Bailey risks it all and asks Jenna out on a date on their high school graduation day.

In Path II, Bailey does not ask Jenna out on a date on their high school graduation day.

What follows in both paths is Bailey and Jenna’s story. It’s the most important moments that make up their lives together and apart. It’s the story of how they were always drawn together and always would be. It’s the ups and the downs, the perfect moments and the difficult ones. It’s the tears and the laughter. And it’s the drive to make forever possible with the love of your life no matter the circumstances.


Enthralled in Her Design

by Jolie Dvorak

Their attraction is instant, their connection undeniable.

Syrene Harkman likes to be in control. She heads an award-winning global architectural firm, she designs things of beauty, she pays for the finest pleasures. When she loses one of the biggest jobs in her company’s history and turns forty-five on the same day, she does not appreciate the cheap, tacky, dive of a strip club her friends drag her to. With a half-decent whiskey in her hand, she decides to stay. What’s the worst that could happen?

Burlesque dancer and stripper Beatriz Rose has bills to pay, her grandmother to support and dreams of one day doing something more with that art-school degree than just repaying the student debt. She never expects true love to strike when she’s at work, but when it does, it hits her hard in the form of a steely, demanding and outright gorgeous woman. Bea breaks her own rules and finds herself in a client’s bed.

They’re perfect for each other but their worlds are a million miles apart. In the aftermath of a one night stand that flares hotter than either expected, the two women decide they’re meant for each other—but real life has other ideas.

Society tells them one night to forever is a fairy tale.

What are they prepared to surrender to prove that fairy tales can come true?


Oh My Stars

by S-Jay Hart

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Can you ever find something you never knew you’d lost?

You can outgrow a place, it’s common knowledge. You can even outgrow people. Honey Rosenberg has spent her entire life in the small town of Verity Vale and it still fits her perfectly. She lives her life in certainties. She goes to work every day with her sisters at their family deli. She bakes sweet treats that the town clamor for and she spends her nights drinking cider and playing chess, under the moonlight, with her elderly neighbor and best friend.

Everything is idyllic.

But life can turn on a dime and when it does, she wonders if things will ever feel the same.

Liv Henderson thought she had it all, beautiful girlfriend, a luxury seventh-floor apartment with a city view and job she always wanted. But then she is handed something she never asked for. The deed to a place she barely remembers. Suddenly nothing is what it seems and Liv starts to question everything she’s ever known, including herself. As Liv’s life starts to unfurl around her she soon comes to learn that in order to find ourselves we have to be ourselves.

Sometimes all you have to do is look up.

Here are five random facts about Chelsea M. Cameron.

1. When I was a kid, my career aspirations ranged from marine biologist to actress (I even went to Marine Biology Camp!).

2. I worked for the parks department as my summer job, but it wasn’t as chaotic as the TV show!

3. The first romance book I ever read was Kushiel’s Dart and it was given to me by one of my best friends in high school. I now have a tattoo of a quote from that book.

4. I am absolute TRASH for reality TV. The Bachelor, Project Runway, Love Is Blind, Real Housewives. I love it all.

5. One of my favorite snacks is potato chips dipped in ketchup.

Stay Here Tonight

by Cynthia Dane & Hildred Billings

Lonely Lydia has little to look forward to during her long days working at the local LGBT resource center. Except greeting multimillionaire heiress Maxine Woodward, who drops by every week. But Maxine could barely care who Lydia is. Maxine’s a faraway dream, the ultimate fantasy for young lesbian Lydia. When she attends a high-class fundraiser at Maxine’s country manor, the last thing Lydia expects is for her dreams to come true!

Dancing. Flirting. And a one-night stand that leaves more than her heart racing and her body shaking. But the fantasy comes to a halt when Maxine tells her young lover to leave. Now. Because Maxine Woodward does not let girls spend the night.
