Please note - This is a Chicklit Novel in the style of Marian Keyes and Sophie Kinsella. 
Tara Babcock awakes the morning after her 30th birthday with a hangover that could kill an elephant - and the knowledge she is still no closer to achieving closure on her marriage breakup. Things go from bad to worse when she discovers that, not only is her ex-husband engaged to her cousin - Tash, the woman he left her for - but that Jake is also running for Lord Mayor of Sydney. 
Desperate to leave the destructive relationship behind and with nothing to lose, she decides - with encouragement from her three best friends - to follow the dubious advice from a magazine article, Closure in Seven Easy Steps. 
The Seven Steps to Closure follows Tara on her sometimes disastrous - always hilarious - path to achieve the seemingly impossible. 
A credible and amazingly touching debut novel from Donna Joy Usher, this is a solid, light-hearted and honest read with plenty of laughs. 
“The Seven Steps to Closure’s heroine, Tara, is an endearing character and her entertaining journey to closure is packed with laughs and plenty of heart.” Tonya Plank, Shirley You Jest! Book Awards judge and author of 'Swallow'.

    From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day comes a story of the ultimate seduction. . . . 
    Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. He was a primitive creature. Just like her. 
    He held her hand a little too long, his gaze, under thick lashes, clearly stating his intention to have her. To tame her. . . . 
    "Victoria." 
    Her name, just one word, but spoken with such possession she could almost feel the collar around her neck. 
    "It's in your nature," he murmured. "The desire to be taken." 
    In this game of cat and mouse, everything is an illusion, but the passion is as real as it gets. . . .

    Tempting Zander (Knight Security 4) is the 5th story in USA Today Bestselling author, Carole Mortimer’s, Amazon #1 Knight Security series. This is a spin-off series to the #1 Bestselling Alpha Series, so come and say hi to old friends and meet a lot of new ones! 
     
    Author’s Note: The stories in the Knight Security, Alpha, and Regency Unlaced Series have stronger sexual content and language than my other books. 
     
    When singer/songwriter superstar Kate Stewart’s ex-boyfriend starts issuing threats on her life, her manager hires Knight Security as extra protection during her world tour. As soon as Kate sets eyes on Zander Buchanan, six and a half feet of tattooed muscle and attitude, she realizes the man now in charge of protecting her is more of danger to her, and her heart, than her ex could ever be.  
     
    Being head of megastar Kate Stewart’s protection detail should have been just another job to Zander, instead it’s become his own living hell. Kate is beautiful, wilful, sexy as hell—and Zander wants her more than he has ever wanted any other woman. 
     
    Zander soon realizes he’s the one in need of protection. From Kate, and the desire that burns out of control whenever the two of them are alone together. 
    But her ex is still out there, biding his time, and Zander can’t afford the distraction of wanting Kate if he’s going to keep her safe. 
     
    Is Zander strong enough to resist her? Will Kate let him? Or will her ex-boyfriend make that decision for them both by killing Kate, as he’s threatened to do if she ever starts seeing another man?

    Taylor Southerland is about to quit. Again. Architectural restoration is the most recent in a long line of careers that don’t fit. She wants something to feel passionate about and worries her inevitable job description might begin and end as someone’s trophy wife. Before she can figure out her next move, she has to finish the job she was hired for, which means finding a way to work with the fast talking Yankee responsible for the metal work, who seems intent on planting his sexy broad shoulders and tattooed biceps in her path. 
    Welder and Jersey native, Matthew Thorne has enough on his plate completing the restoration work on his latest project. The last thing he needs is a spoiled Southern belle sticking her nose in his business.  He just wants to finish the work he was hired to do, so he can get back on his bike and move on to the next job, especially when she’s a complication he doesn’t need. She might be smart, funny and sexy, but she’s also a major distraction – and distractions and blowtorches are a bad combination. 
    Taylor thinks he’s dangerous and Matthew’s sure she’s trouble, but it doesn’t stop things from heating up between them. With sparks flying, can they see past their misconceptions to find the truth buried under the rubble or are the biker and the belle destined to stay lost to each other?
