She was hired to rebuild his reputation…

But will this doc be too hot to handle?

After successfully fighting a year-long lawsuit, handsome, rebellious surgeon Rex Maxwell is ready to get back on top of his game! So when buttoned-up but beautiful PR exec Tiffani Romano insists on making him the center of his hospital’s campaign, he reluctantly agrees. And though she tries hard not to let him, Rex is determined to get under her skin…


Susan Carlisle’s Harlequin Medical Romance’s are always a joy to read! She brings a character to life in the midst of medical situations that feel real and add a flair of drama to the plot that captures our attention and has us feeling like we’ve known the characters forever before we know it. With this particular book, we meet a pair of unlikely suitors who each have their own past that they are trying to come, while getting to know the other opens their eyes more than they ever expected to not only the other person, but also to some wrong thinking they’ve had about themselves over the years.

Rough around the edges doctor, Rex Maxwell hates coming across as anything other than the authentic person that he is, so when the hospital board brings in a PR firm to sugar-coat his image after he overcomes a year-long lawsuit, he feels like it’s forced. He’ll grin and bear it for awhile, but he doesn’t have to like it!

Public relations guru Tiffani Romano has her own reasons for being less than thrilled about her current assignment at Metropolitan Hospital, but as time passes and she lets her guard down, she comes to realize Rex isn’t quite the pompous guy she was expecting. The old saying about opposites attracting just might be true, because the air around them is practically sparking from the chemistry they have between them!

Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more…

Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth—he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used—hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted—in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.

Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea—the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires.

Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything—and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees...


Explosively hot! When Laura Kaye sets out to give sadist Alex McGarry his happy ending, she goes all in! Such a great read! There’s an endearing quality to Jamie that draws our (and Alex’s) attention right from the start. He’s honestly humble with how little he knows about the lifestyle, but his eagerness to find the piece of himself that has always been missing shines through to everyone that meets him. I would have loved to have had a longer story for them with more day to day living because they were just that good of a couple together. Really enjoyed!

Jamie Fielding is facing yet another failed attempt at a relationship with a woman who should have been all he had ever dreamed of … but once again, it just fell flat. When a friend calls his attention to the fact that he sort of gets a rush from pain and introduces him to Club Blasphemy, his entire world changes. Could this be what he’s been yearning for all along?

Master Alex has been feeling burned out for awhile now. Scene after scene with any sub who wants to feel the pain of his wrath is no longer holding the appeal that it used to. He still goes home to an empty bed. He’s not one to work with newbies to the scene, and he’s pissed off at being asked to show Jamie around on his first night at the club … but a few minutes with him, seeing the passion and awe show in every move of his face takes him back to how it used to feel. The excitement, the rush, the tingling awareness … the burning attraction between them is hard to resist, but could a novice ever be able to handle the pain he burns to give?







Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

Breathing hard and shaking with arousal, Alex eased the two of them down to the floor so that he could hold Jamie in his arms. “Come here, Jamie. Rest on me.”

Jamie’s sluggish movements revealed that he was still riding the physical and emotional waves of the scene, so Alex helped turn him until he was cradled against his chest. And then Jamie released a breath that resounded with such utter contentment that it reached inside Alex’s chest.

Christ. Christ. The way Jamie had taken his beating. The way he’d reveled in the pain of it. Alex’s twisted sadist heart was flying, because what they’d just shared had been perfection.

“Talk to me. Are you okay?” Alex asked, his gaze raking over the relaxed lines of the sub’s handsome face and the almost sleepy appearance of his gray eyes. Before, he’d thought Jamie hot. Now, seeing him totally sated because of the pain Alex had given him, he thought him beautiful.

“I—I have never felt better in my whole life.” His voice was little more than a raw scrape, but the emotion behind the words came through crystal fucking clear. “All this time…all this time I thought something was wrong with me. When I just needed this.” Those gray eyes slanted up at him. “And you.”

Damn if the guy wasn’t riding pretty damn close to subspace, a euphoric altered state of mind that some submissives achieved due to the overwhelming rush of endorphins and adrenaline that spiked and receded during intense BDSM scenes. So Alex wasn’t going to take the adoration in that steel gaze too much to heart.

“You handled that so perfectly,” Alex said, wiping away the wetness of tears or sweat—or both—from Jamie’s face. Doing so emphasized the warm heat still filling Alex’s palm. He freaking relished it and the quiet, calm peace in his mind that he hadn’t felt in far too long.

“I did?” When Alex nodded, Jamie smiled. “Thank you.” His lids sagged, then snapped back open. “Thank you, Sir.”

Alex chuckled. “How was the intensity of that for you, Jamie? Did you feel you were nearing your limit?”

He shook his head. “Even though it hurt and I started to feel…shattered, I was green. I was green the whole time.”

Jesus. Master Alex brought Jamie’s cuffed hand to his mouth and kissed his knuckles. “I think you can switch out the light blue ribbon for the dark.”

Jamie’s eyes went wide, like Alex had just surprised him with a gift. “Really, Sir?”

See? There was just no questioning the sincerity of Jamie’s pleasure, the intensity of his satisfaction, nor how profoundly experiencing his first sadomasochistic scene had affected him. Still affected him. And, in turn, Alex, too. Because when had he last seen such unadulterated elation? When had he last witnessed such a pure example of the freeing power of this lifestyle? When had anyone he’d played with recently found so much of themselves in a scene?

After years in the city Kate Randolph has come home to take care of her ailing father, only to find local cowboy Jace Carpenter in charge of her father’s ranch. Jace isn’t sure what to make of Kate, but he’s dealing with big changes in his own life since his family ranch was sold. Can a prodigal daughter and a restless cowboy turn the bad hand life has dealt them into a winning combination?


Short, sweet and satisfying! With the first novella in the COWBOY KISSES anthology, Cindi Myers brings us a story of finding love when you least expect it! The characters are easy to connect with, the story line is fast paced and complete. The ending was abrupt, and I would have enjoyed more time with them, but that’s generally the case with a novella length story. A fun read!

When Kate Randolph returns home to take care of her ailing father, she never expects to find all that she’s been looking for right in front of her. She gets to spend time with her dad, she gets to get her foot in the door to a new business idea, and best of all, she gets to reconnect with an old acquaintance who makes her pulse race every time he’s near!

Rancher Jace Carpenter is going through a bit of adjustment himself since his parents sold the ranch he always thought would be in the family forever, but being on the Rocking R when Kate arrives back home turns out to be a blessing in disguise! Now if only he can convince her that this small town living with a cowboy all her own is all that she needs in life!

In the new Play-by-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Final Score, opposites attract when a figure skater and hockey player lace up their skates--and go for the gold...

Will "Mad Dog" Madigan is making his second trip to the Winter Games, and he couldn't be happier. Hockey is his life and playing for the U.S. team is a privilege. Then he meets U.S. figure skater Amber Sloane. She's beautiful, ambitious and driven--everything Will desires in a woman. He would love to show Amber how hot life off the ice can be.

Amber has skated her entire life, sacrificing everything in the hopes of one day winning gold. Now she's competing for the third and final time. She intends to win, and nothing's going to get in her way--until she meets Will. He's an irresistible charmer, and before long Amber is wondering if this sexy hockey player is the perfect guy to show her some moves outside the rink.

But after all the medals have been awarded, Will and Amber will have to decide if what they have together is just a fling or a real shot at true love.


What a great book to read RIGHT NOW! I had such a blast reading this book while watching the Olympic’s on TV and imagining such things happening there. The characters hook you quickly and the story line is sweet, sassy and competitive!

Hockey extraordinaire Will “Mad Dog” Madigan is extremely proud to represent the US in the Vancouver Winter Games and plans to have the time of his life while he’s there. He’s a friendly guy and the life of the party so it’s not a surprise that everyone wants to party with Will!

Figure skater Amber Sloane is back for her final attempt at bringing home the gold. She’s decided to make this third trip to the Games her very best, and meeting Will early on puts her on the right track. Their attraction to each other proves to be a bit of a distraction, but their early devotion to supporting each other’s journey helps keep them focused on what they’re really there for!

She ran away from her own wedding…

Now she’s falling for the man who must bring her home!

When heiress Morgan Monroe realizes nothing about her wedding is her own choice—including the groom!—she runs. But her father’s associate, Spanish millionaire Riccardo Ochoa, is hot on her heels, under orders to bring her home! Morgan knows it’s wrong to imagine a romance with this stranger, but why does being with Riccardo feel so right?


The runaway bride hits the jackpot! A really fun take on finding love when you least expect it. I didn’t quite connect with Riccardo quite as much as I did his cousin Mitch in the first book, but I did grow to like him as the story went on. It was fun to see some of the family from previously in the series again as well. Good characters and a satisfying plot!

Heiress Morgan Monroe has lived her life making the fewest amount of waves as possible. She loves her controlling father, and typically doesn’t mind doing things the way he prefers, but this time … she has to do it her way! She’s on the verge of marrying a man she doesn’t even care to spend her life with because it’s her father’s wish … but this good girl just went rogue and became a runaway bride!

Riccardo Ochoa doesn’t even know Morgan, but her father is one of the biggest customers for his cousin’s business, and there’s no way he can let that relationship fall apart while Mitch is away on his honeymoon! So he has to chase after a spoiled debutante and take her home to daddy … it’s not the end of the world … but when he sets eyes on her and starts to see that she’s not the airhead he was expecting, he’s not so sure he’s willing to strong-arm her back under daddy’s thumb!

I’m determined to get back to where I was. For you to hear my name again. I’ve finally convinced the owner of Team Domination to take a chance and get me back in fighting—and winning—shape.

A killer stole her voice. Now she's ready to take it back. Don't miss the chilling Shades of Death series from USA TODAY bestselling author Debra Webb.

Joanna Guthrie was free. She had been for eighteen years--or so she needed everyone to believe. What really happened during the longest fourteen days of her life, when she and two other women were held captive by a dangerous serial killer, wasn't something she could talk about. Not after what they had to do to survive.

But when more women go missing in an eerily similar manner, Jo knows her prolonged silence will only seal their fates. She's finally ready to talk; she just needs someone to listen. FBI special agent Tony LeDoux can't deny he finds Jo compelling--he's just not sure he believes her story. But with the clock ticking, Jo will do anything to convince him, even if it means unearthing long-buried secrets that will land them squarely in the crosshairs of the killer...


Heart-wrenching terror! Explosive fear brings a whole new aspect to Debra Webb’s Shades of Death series as we delve into a case that hits way too close to home for a familiar face. A totally different type of case than the first part of the series revolved around, but no less intriguing! Well-developed characters lead us through an intricate plot purposely laid out in a way to keep us guessing about who was is involved, what the reasoning is, and whether it will all end with this case or not. Really enjoyed the cameo and update from previous characters!

For eighteen years, Joanna Guthrie has remained silent about the nightmare she lived through in college. Being one of two girls that walked away from a horrible situation after doing anything they had to in order to survive basically ended life as she knew it and began a new one where she never spoke of what happened, and never again thought of the bright future she once basked in. Now she has no other choice than to finally speak up … because it’s happening again … teenagers have gone missing … exactly the way she did!

FBI Special Agent Anthony LeDoux isn’t sure what to make of Jo’s story when she first approaches him, but he can’t risk not believing her and things ending badly. Together they set out to follow leads based on what she knows from her captivity and what the current case is pointing to .. when too many similarities to ignore start occurring, they realize that they are truly onto something and power through to find the answers they all need … will they find the girls in time, or will history re-write itself in a way no one ever expected?
