    For years Celina Storton had been in love with Robin, the Earl of Torrington, but he spent his time in Paris, pursuing beautiful women and the more the merrier. Then his mother’s illness forced him to return to England, where she demanded that he marry quickly, as she had not long to live. She had chosen his bride for him – Celina. He was horrified by this threat to his liberty, but since Celina was an old friend and as he loved his mother, he agreed. Only when the wedding was over did his mother reveal that she was not as ill as she had seemed. Furious at the way he had been tricked into marriage, Robin turned on his wife, certain that she must have been party to the deception. But Celina was innocent and became angry at his accusations. She was ready to walk out on him, but then she discovered that his tenants had been ill-treated during his long absences in Paris. She set out to improve their lives, and became so determined to achieve this end that she almost forgot her husband. Robin was not used to women who stood up to him or ignored him. But his wife did both and he found himself intrigued. But neither of them had reckoned with a man who sought revenge on Robin for putting him in prison, and who had finally tracked him down. What happened when he broke into their home and tried to kill Celina, is all told in this exciting, romantic novel by BARBARA CARTLAND.

    Once, Abrielle was a privileged daughter coveted for her bearing, her breeding, her wit, and her beauty. But when her stepfather is denied his rightful title and the wealth that accompanies it, Abrielle finds herself suddenly disgraced. Only one man would still have her: the oafish and grotesque Desmond de Marlé. To rescue her once-proud family's honor, Abrielle must sacrifice her virtue to this scoundrel she fears and detests . . . even as she yearns for another lover. 
    Dashing, handsome, tall, and kind, Raven Seabern is quite unlike any man Abrielle has ever encountered. But their love can never be, for Abrielle is betrothed to a monster. And the well-being of everyone she cares for demands that she honor her promise. Still, Raven knows he has found the true one and must never let her go—though secrets, deceptions, dishonor, and unimaginable peril will surely be their fate if they follow the dictates of their hearts.

    Jennifer L. Armentrout (also known as J. Lynn), New York Times bestselling author of the Wait for You saga, delivers a new novel of first love, second chances, and scorching chemistry. 
    Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She's been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She's sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice. 
    Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She's not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already. 
    But Reece isn't convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn't believe him, he's not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He's already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he's not going to let history repeat itself.

    The first installment of a sexy series about a modern-day heroine writing historical novels based on her romantic misadventures with the Bad Boy Billionaire.  
    Jane Sparks has accidentally announced her engagement on Facebook—to the infamous Bad Boy Billionaire, Duke Austen. As soon as it's discovered that Jane and Duke barely know each other (one hot kiss at a party does not a relationship make), she'll be completely humiliated. And then Duke does something Jane never expected: He plays along with her charade.  
    With his hard-partying playboy reputation jeopardizing a 150-million-dollar investment deal, Duke realizes an engagement with the sexy but oh-so-proper librarian could be just the thing to repair his reputation. This good girl tempts him to be very wicked … but only with her. It's unprecedented. Inconceivable. Totally alluring.  
    As the unlikely match of librarian and tech entrepreneur set out to convince the world—and the internet—that their love is real, something unexpected happens: They start falling for each other. But Jane is secretly writing a historical romance novel that could expose their carefully constructed romance … unless two perfect strangers are content to be perfectly scandalous together.

    He’s hotter than hot 
    Bad boy Mitch Thompson finally convinced straight-laced Constable Anna Coleman to take him for a ride. It only took a few—okay, a lot of speeding tickets and some smooth talking—but now that Anna’s loosened off her stiff RCMP uniform, it’s not nearly enough for Mitch. Their secret escapades are steamy and mind-blowing, but he wants more than her body—he wants her heart. 
    She’s afraid of getting burned 
    Anna doesn’t know how far she can safely go before she crosses the line. Sinfully sexy Mitch may have lured her wild side out to play, but giving in to more and more illicit desires could endanger her very civilized career on the police force. There has to be a point between yearning and obsession. Or is there? 
    Will giving in mean giving up everything she’s worked for, or will they gain everything they’ve ever wanted?
