Summary

 

The last thing I want is to share my beautiful office with an uptight, unfriendly new English professor. I don't care if he's incredibly hot. He's still the worst office mate in the world.

 

We're stuck together for a year, and that might be too long for me to resist discovering what's hiding beneath his buttoned-up appearance.

 

Office Mate is the second book in the Milford College series, novellas about the faculty and staff of a small liberal arts college

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy a fragment

“Hey,” I say as I come in, dropping my keys onto my desk and turning to face him.

 

He looks up from his computer. His expression is unsmiling but not angry. “Hi.”

 

“I’m sorry about before. I’m not sure what got into me. I’m not usually so… irritable. I’m really sorry.”

 

His mouth turns up just a little. His eyes soften palpably. “Evidently I’m an irritating kind of person, so that probably explains it.”

 

“No, you’re not!” I lower my tone as I continue. “You’re really not that irritating. I should never have implied that about you. It’s just that I’m usually really good at getting to know people, and I’ve been frustrated that I can’t seem to get to know you.”

 

He frowns. “You don’t know me?”

 

“Of course not.” My eyes are wide in surprise. “You think I’ve gotten to know you?”

 

“I thought we were making progress.” He seems bothered by that piece of information, and he looks down at his desk as if he’s thinking. “I’m afraid I’m never going to be the life of the party, if that’s what you’re hoping for.”

 

“I know that. I mean, I don’t care about that. I like all kinds of people. I just feel like you’ve got so many walls up I can’t seem to get around them.”

 

“Maybe if you wouldn’t run away every time things start to get better between us.”

 

Shit. He has no idea. I have to run away occasionally, but it’s not because I don’t want to get to know him.

 

It’s because I want to tear his clothes off.

 

No way I can admit that to him.

 

I clear my throat and think fast. “I haven’t run away that much. You just confuse me.”

 

“What can I do to be less confusing?” Leave it to Evan to go about getting to know someone with the same sober determination he uses to tackle everything else.

 

“I don’t know. Don’t you ever just hang out and relax?”

 

“You want to hang out with me?”

 

Yes. Of course I do. In particular, I want to hang out in bed with him. “I just meant to get to know each other a little more. So we can get along better and be more comfortable sharing the office.” There. That didn’t sound too bad. That didn’t give away my irrational lust for him.

 

He nods. “I like to bike, but that’s obviously not your thing. I can go with you when you walk, if you’d like. Or…”

 

“Or what?”

 

“I was thinking about watching the Lord of the Rings movies since you like them so much.”

 

My heart clenches. Ridiculously. “You were?”

 

“Yes.”

 

“Maybe you can watch them with me. I would enjoy that.”

 

“You would?”

 

“Yes. Would… would you?”

 

“Of course I would.” His eyes never leave my face.

 

“What if you don’t like them?”

 

“I’m sure if you like them, then they can’t be that bad.”

 

We smile at each other, and I let out a long breath.

 

I still have way too many papers to grade today, but things are definitely looking up.

These men never back away from danger—and always fall hard for love in Cover Six Security, an explosive new series from USA Today Bestselling Author Lisa B. Kamps.

 

Derrick "Chaos" Biggs lives mostly in the shadows, tethered by nothing more than a deep-seated code of honor and the knowledge that his actions are for the greater good. A failed mission forces him to walk away from his former life and he finds a new purpose working with Cover Six Security. The rules aren't quite as loose, the work is just as satisfying--and there's no chance of his soul being swallowed by the darkness of his past. Or so he thinks...

 

Lidiya Stephenson is caught between two worlds: one of her own making, and one born of the sins of her grandfather. When she's threatened by the secrets of his past, she turns to the only person she dares to trust, an online colleague she knows only as Chaos.

 

Trust is a valuable commodity, one in short supply as the couple navigates a confusing maze of secrets and deceit while fighting their searing attraction for each other. But time is running out and when someone decides that the secrets must die with Lidiya, Chaos is thrust back into the shadow world he's come to hate. Only this time, he won't be able to walk away--not without risking his sanity, his heart...and their lives.

TEASER WEDNESDAY: BREAKAWAY BY ELISE FABER

 

 

 

 

It was hate at first sight...
Breakaway by Elise Faber releases on September 15th!
 
 
 
It was hate at first sight.

Just not for Blue. He’d loved what he’d seen. Tall and thin with long blond hair and gorgeous blue eyes, Anna Hayes was absolutely beautiful.

She also wanted absolutely nothing to do with him.

As a professional hockey player, that was a rare thing for Blue Anderson. He was young, rich, good looking, and in the best shape of his life. He wouldn’t say he had to beat women off with a stick, but . . . maybe he had to brush them off with a broom. Still, bad puns aside, the truth was Blue didn’t have any trouble finding someone—or someones—to share his bed.

Except Anna.

Never beautiful Anna with the razor-sharp wit and seriously dirty mouth.

Despite his appreciation for her model good looks, Blue knew when to stay away. And his plan was to remain far far away from the woman who never failed to roast him within an inch of his life.

He wanted someone nice, not a woman who’d barbecue his balls off.

But then Blue did something stupid—something that felt incredible, but was also incredibly stupid.

He kissed prickly, gorgeous Anna Hayes.

And every one of his carefully laid plans went right out the window.

 

COVER REVEAL: TESTAROOSA (A JOHN TESTAROOSA NOVEL) BY JD CARY

Things are never what they seem; especially in police work.

 

John Testarossa is an LAPD cop with an NYPD attitude who has seen it all. The dead, the dying and the decomposing are all in a day’s work for the red-headed Italian from Brooklyn.

 

After an arm rolls up on a Santa Monica beach, and the dead body to which the arm was once attached is discovered, John and his partner, Alex Ortiz, enter the world of college sports, athletes, and the illegal drugs that enhance their performance.

 

Rage and revenge come together in a toxic cocktail John is all too familiar with. It defined him as a young boy, and ultimately still does as a man. He carries a dark secret.

 

It is in the beautiful Dr. Karen Gennaro—who has a few secrets of her own— that John finds a soft place to land. Even as he knows all too well what falling in love with a cop can do to a woman.

 

What sustains this hard-boiled detective is the bond he shares with his brave and dedicated partners. When that bond is destroyed in a senseless act of violence, will his past, and a desire for vengeance, destroy him?

 

From Los Angeles, where Venice Beach, Marina del Rey, and the dream of Abbot Kinney’s Venice Canals paint a picture of bliss, Testarossa will take you on a deeper, darker journey.

Phillip (7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes Book 4) by Cristin Harber

Phillip (7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes #4) - Cristin Harber

 

 

They loved. They lost. They moved on. Or so they thought. For Phillip Blackthorne and Ashley Cartwright, the damage of their not so distant past is about to wreak havoc on their all too recent, future. Harber brings out the big guns when it comes to romance. Phillip revisits a past gone wrong to help make another sad love song right. Phillip and Ashley are my favorite Blackthorne couple to date. With a dash of sentiment and a smidge of humor, Harber delves deep into heartbreak and finds heartwarming instead.

Enamored (Accidental Billionaires Book 3) by: J.S. Scott

Enamored (Accidental Billionaires Book 3) - J.S. Scott

 

 

Enamored made every page count. Scott takes the term heartbreaker seriously. Seth and Riley went from raw to inspiring. Riley could be the poster child for bad luck. From childhood to adulthood painful secrets continue to shape the woman she's come to be. She's a fighter that doesn't know how to quit. Even if that means breaking her own heart. Seth Sinclair is the firestorm she never saw coming. Brought together by a difference of opinion, they push each other at ever turn. With battle lines drawn, it quickly becomes obvious that more is going on. Battle scarred and world weary, can these fierce enemies survive the heartache of falling in love? Out of a tarnished life comes a captivating romance that will forever haunt your heart.

Audio Review: Temporary Groom: Left at the Altar by: J.S. Scott (author) Elizabeth Powers (narrator)

Temporary Groom: Left at the Altar - Elizabeth Powers, J.S. Scott

 

 

Love and friendship collide amidst a comedy of errors. Zeke and Lia have a history. Will they let that shared history ruin their chance at a future as so much more? Temporary Groom takes a look into the eyes of love and walked away with this romantic's heart. From top to bottom Scott can do no less than perfect.

Audio Review: Well Played by: Ruth Cardello (author) J.S. Scott (author) Elizabeth Powers (narrator)

Well Played  - Elizabeth Powers, Ruth Cardello, J.S. Scott

 

 

When is a mistake not a mistake?  When it's meant to be?  Well Played is the ultimate double team.  J.S. Scott brings the heated complications of romance and Ruth Cardello brings the humor and heart.   Betrayal sets the stage for an emotional roller coaster ride.  Lauren is caught up in the storm of love, secrets and loss.  Graham is her heart's desire, but the event that brings them together is rapidly tearing their friendship apart.  What once was precious is on the verge of becoming a battlefield. Will these soul mates survive the war?  No one does love like J.S. Scott and Ruth Cardello.  Separately, they make their mark, together they are a force to be reckoned with. Grab hold of your heart because, this love story is going to be a bumpy ride.

Wait For Me (Swoon Series Book 2) by: J.H. Croix

Wait For Me (Swoon Series Book 2) - J.H. Croix

 

 

I love J.H. Croix. Her characters appeal to that little voice in your head that forces your heart to take notice. Wait for Me is the start of something new. Lucas and Valentina are friends fighting an attraction that quickly spirals out of control. She's more than a little naive. He's more than a little jaded. With a wary heart and a growing desire, can lust become more than either hoped to find? From emotional to tempting, Wait For Me delivers swoons and so much more.

In this evocative and poignant novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of Blind Kiss and Wish You Were Here, a young widow in the midst of grieving her late husband through Facebook posts learns to heal and fall in love again.

“See you on the other side.”

Laya Marston’s husband, Cameron, a daredevil enthusiast, always said this before heading off on his next adventure. He was the complete opposite of her, ready and willing to dive off a cliff-face, or parachute across a canyon—and Laya loved him for it. But she was different: pragmatic, regimented, devoted to her career and to supporting Cameron from the sidelines of his death-defying feats.

Opposites attract, right?

But when Cameron dies suddenly and tragically, all the stages of grief go out the window. Laya becomes lost in denial, living in the delusion that Cameron will come back to her. She begins posting on his Facebook page, reminiscing about their life together, and imagining new adventures for the two of them.

Micah Evans, a young and handsome architect at Laya’s father’s firm, is also stuck––paralyzed by the banal details of his career, his friendships, and his love life. He doesn’t know what he’s looking for, only that there is someone out there who can bring energy and spirit to the humdrum of his life.

When Micah discovers Laya’s tragic and bizarre Facebook posts, he’s determined to show Laya her life is still worth living. Leaving her anonymous gifts and notes, trying to recreate the sense of adventure she once shared with her late husband, Micah finds a new passion watching Laya come out of the darkness. And Laya finds a new joy in the experiences Micah has created for her.

But for Laya, letting another man in still feels like a betrayal to her late husband. Even though Micah may be everything she could wish for, she wonders if she deserves to find happiness again.

Written with Renée Carlino’s signature “tender and satisfying” (Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Maybe in Another Life) prose, this warm and compassionate novel shows us how powerful the courage to love and live again truly is.

NEW RELEASE: THE CANDLE PALACE (JAMISON VALLEY) BY DEVNEY PERRY

 

 



 







 




 











 


Sometimes a single flame can
ignite a love that lasts a lifetime. 




Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through
the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to
bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted
and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life
and leaving an empty hole in its place.


But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital
room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain
isn’t all he feels.




The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just
hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun
beating again just for her.
