  • Hell’s Kitchen by Lili St. Germain & Callie Hart ($.99) – mafia romance and their collaborative work!
  • Easy Love by Kristen Proby
  • Conviction by Lesley Jones – from the author of Carnage comes another angst-filled read! “[Him] She was mine. Our love, unquestioned. Our futures planned. But she didn’t show. All that we had, all that we meant, and after all that was said, she just didn’t show…[Her] I thought he loved me, I believed everything he said, every promise that he made but then, when I needed him more than I’d needed anyone in my life, and when I was at my most vulnerable, he let me down.”

  • Sweet Sound of Silence by Melanie Dawn – sweet, touching NA romance! (here’s my review)
  • Levitate by Kaylee Ryan
  • Boy Toy Chronicles 1 by Jay McLean ($.99) – sounds wild & crazy! “So…I came up with a plan. I sat the brothers down and gave them my speech; we’d become male escorts. The house was split. The single dudes thought it was great. The guys with the steady girlfriends told the single dudes they were insane. I promised them all we could make it work without hurting anybody. But we had to be smart about it. We had to keep it off campus. We had to keep it a secret. And in order to do so, we had to target those who wanted it kept a secret as much as we did. Our target: Filthy rich, unsatisfied, horny housewives. Keep it high class, so to speak. And thus began BTC, or Boy Toy Corporation. Crazy, right? Crazy genius.”
  • Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy
  • Rock by Kendall Grey
  • Return to Me by Kelly Moran – Aww, this newly released second chance romance sounds heartwrenchingly good! Years ago, the hero and heroine were happy together but “one night everything changed, and two hearts were shattered.” The hero enlisted in the military and buried his guilt there and now he’s back with the heroine as his private nurse. “She’ll discover a secret [he’s] held for years, one that will force them to confront the past and give new meaning to letting go, forgiveness, and a future worth fighting for.”
  • Changing Everything by Molly McAdams
  • Need by K.I. Lynn & N. Isabelle Blanco – stepsibling romance!! The hero and heroine are best friends who grew up together and then fell in love with each other. But they get a reality check when their parents get remarried to each other. “It was just a crush. They were only kids, after all. But what happens when that feeling never goes away?”
  • Unraveled by Lorelei James
  • Ice Steam by S. Ann Cole
  • Sidelined by Emma Hart – This is a sports romance standalone within her By His Game series and seems to have a love triangle of sorts. Will she “be [with] the guy she lived with and loved for three years, or will the winner be the guy who understands her and makes her body come alive? In this game, someone will be sidelined, and calling the play isn’t always as easy as it seems.”
  • Twisted Souls by LL Collins
  • The Trouble with Love by Lauren Layne – I 1-clicked this!! It sounds fun & steamy with a nice love/hate dynamic. 5 years ago, the heroine was ditched at the altar by the hero who went on to pursue his soccer career. But after being sidelined by a physical injury he decides to give journalism a shot….and runs smack dab into the heroine who’s in the same field. “[He] can’t help wondering what might have been. Unlike the innocent girl he remembers, [the heroine is] chic, sophisticated, and assertive—and she wants absolutely nothing to do with him. The trouble is, [he] has never wanted her more.”
  • Something Real by Lexi Ryan
  • The List by Anne Calhoun
  • The Submission series by CD Reiss ($.99) – all 8 books in her erotic romance series in 1!
  • Sawyer by Nicole Edwards – This is the 7th book in her Alluring Indulgence series & an erotic romance. “Sawyer Walker has never run into problems with women. The female population tends to swarm toward him, in fact, and he’s never had a complaint. But there’s one woman Sawyer has always had his eye on. A woman who won’t give him the time of day.”
  • The Perception by Adriana Locke
  • Sustain by Tijan – rockstar romance!
  • Fire Down Below by Debra Anastasia
  • Sorority of Three by Melissa Brown ($.99) – This is a NA romance following the lives of three friends during their first year of college. “They’ve decided to go against the grain and, rather than pledge the Greek system at the University of Illinois, create an unofficial sorority of their own. This is their story. The ups and downs, the trials and tribulations, the romance and heartbreak. Welcome to freshman year.”

I’m done hiding. I’m done running. I’m going to take my life back. It was supposed to be easy. A meeting with Jason Pierce, a private investigator, was set up for me. All I had to do was go to him, let him do his thing, and then I could go home, or so I thought. That is, until I met Jason and things got…complicated.”
  • The Design by RS Grey – fun office romance! I liked it (here’s my review)
  • Losing Control by Riley Hart
  • Untamed by Jessica Sorensen
  • Genie by Kitty French – I really want to read this! The heroine is determined to save her family theatre while the hero is a mogul equally determined to buy it out from underneath her. “On paper they have nothing in common, and when they meet, they have even less. The only thing they DO have is chemistry. Undeniable, rip-my-clothes-off-and-do-me-now-against-the-wall chemistry. He wants her theatre. She wants him dead. The stage is set for an explosive summer…”
  • Broken Chords by Carrie Elks – realistic romance about an already married couple and their struggles (the hero’s fame as a rockstar, the heroine’s responsibilities as a new mother, etc…) Even though it’s the 2nd book in this series, it’s also a standalone! (here’s my review)
  • The Hidden Library by Heather Lyons – fantasy romance I really enjoyed! (here’s my review) It’s about Alice from Wonderland and her exciting adventures + romance. Be sure to read book 1 first as this isn’t a standalone.
  • The Masterpiece by Ruth Clampett
  • Dangerous Temptations by Brooke Cumberland – I want to read this one! “I was the party-goer who managed to seduce a man twice my age to have the lifestyle some could only dream of. I was every magazine’s cliché of what a gold-digging whore was. I wanted to prove them wrong—that our love was real and that I wasn’t that girl. But then everything changed. One wrong decision. One unfaithful night. One haunting reality. Perhaps they were right. The media didn’t see it coming…and neither did I.”
  • Bared to You by Sylvia Day ($3) – haven’t met Gideon and Eva yet but want to? Grab this first book for $3 (regular $7+)!!

  • Lifers by Jane Harvey Berrick ($.99)
  • Six of Hearts by LH Cosway ($.99) – This one’s a standalone romance with a trickster illusionist hero out to get revenge. “I think in triangles. You think in straight lines. I show you a table and make you believe it’s a chair. Smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand, misdirection. I trick and deceive. But most of all, I put on a good show. The world thinks I killed a man, but I didn’t. Bear with me. It’s all a part of the plan. Revenge is what I want. I want it for me and I want it for her. I want it for all six of us…You’ll never see me coming until it’s too late.”
  • Strings by Kendall Grey ($.99)
  • Fight for You by Charisse Spiers ($.99) – MMA fighter romance!! “To fight and win means the control is his and only his. The last man standing proves it all. Never again will he be on the losing end of the blow, the one lying broken and bloody wanting to die…Then there’s [the heroine], the girl that could cause his control to evanesce. Will she be his downfall or his reparation? Can the girl that won’t submit and the man that requires control find paradise in each other?”
  • Idle Bloom by Jewel E. Ann ($.99)
  • Conviction by Nicole Edwards ($.99) – first book in her Club Destiny series! If you’re looking for a super steamy erotic romance this looks like a good one! “When Logan and Sam get together, sparks fly and they bring out each other’s deepest, darkest desires. He will push Sam past her sexual boundaries, and she will bring out his need to possess her in every way. But, can they find love within the inferno that burns between them?”

  • Trouble by Samantha Towle ($.99)
  • Drops of Rain by Kathryn Andrews ($.99) – emotional YA romance. The heroine is a dancer and after losing her mother goes to live with her aloof father. The hero is the popular swimmer at her high school fighting demons of his own. “I’m not as perfect as they think, most days I am drowning in guilt. I’m not sure I will ever be able to escape the feelings of shame, worthlessness, and just being unwanted…that is until I meet her.”
