Lori King’s Newest Book * Frost -Bitten Oct 17th
Aubrey Celine is in a bad spot. Pregnant and on the run, she’s out of options until she wakes up in the hospital under the care of a delicious-looking Doctor. Can she trust another man after what her ex has put her through? Or has her heart frozen solid?
In the midst of an epic blizzard, these two strangers must rely on each other to stay alive, but every time they’re alone, the heat between them could melt the ice caps. How far will they go to avoid getting frost bite?
“All set. Your friend is currently searching the neighborhood for his runaway fiancée; he believes you went AWOL, against medical advice,” he explained as he started the ignition. “Stay down a little longer if you don’t want to be spotted.”
Aubrey did as she was told, hunching down on the buttery-soft bench seat with only the car’s luxurious interior and one delicious-smelling man to look at. Trapped in this enclosed space with Dr. Jameson, she became keenly aware of her body’s attraction to him. Damn hormones.
“It’s normal,” he murmured.
“The arousal. It’s normal during pregnancy. Your hormones are a bit chaotic.” He glanced over at her, and Aubrey felt her face heat up. “I just didn’t want you to be embarrassed about it.”
“Well, you majorly failed at that, Doc,” she grumbled.
“My name is Quinn. Considering I just helped you escape a dastardly villain, I think we should be on first name terms.” Several more minutes passed before he spoke again.
“We just crossed the river, so you should be okay to sit up now,” he instructed, turning the car off the main road.
“Where are we going?” Aubrey struggled to get her bearings in an unfamiliar part of the city.
“My house.” He looked her way again and shifted the gears flawlessly. “Unless you have another destination in mind?”
“I didn’t have any destination in mind. I just had to get out. Honestly, I didn’t even pause to consider the risk of leaving when I saw my opening. I just ran,” her voice cracked, and she swallowed the lump in her throat. She had no idea where the out of character streak of fearlessness had come from. Alex had been threatening her the entire time he’d held her captive, and until the moment she’d noticed the lock wasn’t secured, she’d never even seriously considered making an escape attempt.
“I know who you’re running from, but what I don’t understand is why? What did this guy, Alex, do to you?”
“He kidnapped me.”

JUST ONE CHANCE by CA Harms
Oh Tequila #1, Standalone
Releasing August 15th from Limitless Publishing!
You left me in a terrible haze, and I can’t find my god damn wallet.
Or my left shoe.
How the hell does one lose their shoe?
I have no f*cking clue.
All I know is that my night started out with one thing in mind…to have a little fun.
The problem with that? I can’t remember a damn thing, except one.
Morgan’s soft and needy moans. It’s a sound I will never forget, just thinking about it makes my heart race and my pulse quicken. And I want to hear it over and over again…I craved it.
But Morgan’s a mystery. The harder I try the more she resists. There’s one thing she doesn’t know about me though…I’m not one to give up.
I’ll play her game, I’ll let her think she’s won. But in the end, I will have her.
Because all I need is Just One Chance to prove she’s meant for me…
“It’s okay,” I assured him and his features hardened. “I understand.”
“Are you done?” he asked.
“It doesn’t have to be a problem.” I was just glad I figured it out now prior to my heart
getting in the way of things. It was a good thing to know now before things went any further than they already had between us.
“A problem,” he repeated, closing his eyes for a minute. “The only problem we have here is you.” I flinched at his words.
“Me?” I asked feeling slightly irritated.
“Yeah,” he said opening his eyes, looking directly into mine. “You keep looking for a way to prove this thing between us won’t work out. You’re just waiting for the moment you can say ‘I fucking told you so.’ But I got news for you, Morgan.” He lifted his hands and curled his fingers with mine. “That moment isn’t coming.”
He closed the last amount of distance between us, pressing his lips to mine, as he slowly lifted my hands above my head. Pinning me to the door, using his body to press tightly to mine, he conquered my mouth leaving me breathless.
“I’m in this with you because I want to be, not because I feel like I have to be,” he whispered as he kissed along my jaw. “Stop pushing me away, stop fighting it.”
In a slow torturous pace, he kissed along my jaw and down the side of my neck.
There was really no point in fighting for control because at that moment Xavier had it. He knew just how to manipulate my body to react to his touch, to his kiss. Within seconds I was ready to let go of all my reservations and let him do whatever he wanted.
He was right, why fight it? Challenging the connection between us was exhausting.
I bit at his lower lip as he began to pull away, triggering a moan from between his lips.
“I think it’s time you accept it,” he said, skimming the side of my nose with his own. “You
want me, I want you, there’s really nothing more that matters than that.”
He was a cocky asshole who was completely right.
“Show me how much you want me,” I challenged him and I could see his eyes fill with lust.
The way he pushed his hips forward, grinding his erection against me. “No,” I whispered, “show me.”
His secrets brought them together. Her secrets will tear them apart.

We are excited to bring you the upcoming standalone from New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Penelope Ward.
DRUNK DIAL will release on AUGUST 21!
Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Vadim Ivanov
Cover Photography: Kevin Roldan
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.
It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.
Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.
I didn’t think he’d call me back.
I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.
Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.
Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.
A complete STANDALONE.
(No Amazon e-book preorder. Will go live on/around release day.)
Penelope Ward is a New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author of thirteen novels. With over a million books sold, her titles have placed on the New York Times Bestseller list sixteen times.
