An Art To It
By Billy London
Patricia Nelson has the most important interview of her life coming up. It’s a world away from the girl she used to be. Her future relies on her being accepted into university, so no distractions. That means not getting turnt up, no drinks and definitely no boys. Not even Art. Beautiful, smart, convenient Art. She ain’t got time for that. Truly. None.
Arthur McWorth has never been thought of as a distraction. A nuisance. A terrible influence. The bane of his parents’ life, yes. But to a girl like Patricia, he’ll take distraction any day. Beautiful, smart and single Patricia. Since they’re practically family, he’ll help her get through her university interview. In exchange, he’s allowed to be someone altogether different. A boyfriend.
His Pretend Baby
By Theodora Taylor
So I was pretty sure my dead ex-boyfriend’s brother hated me…until he asked me to marry him.
And pretend his brother’s baby—which I’m carrying, BTW—is really his.
So now I’m suddenly the wife of a quirky tech billionaire, and falling in like with him so fast, it’s beginning to feel an awful lot like love. But we both have issues, and there are shadows creeping around the edges of our fledgling relationship. Can two people as different as we are make a pretend relationship real?

She’s his best friend’s baby sister, and he’s too broken to deserve her.
Victor Yang spent six years in the Army as a bomb tech, and when he came back from war, he was half out of his mind and completely dangerous to anyone who got too close to him. His friend saved his life, and now he’s repaying that debt in the worst way possible.
He shouldn’t fantasize about Ashley’s touch, her taste. Definitely shouldn’t act on those urges. But he doesn’t half-ass mistakes. One explosive night later, he’s learned how sweet her forbidden fruit tastes, and is coming back for seconds. And if his friend finds out Victor knows exactly how Ash’s skin feels beneath his tongue, his best friend will kill him.

The chemistry between Stephen Foster and Nubia Perry is an undeniable fact.
The handsome, dynamic former rugby star is used to getting who he wants with minimal effort, but Nubia’s steadfast refusal to acquiesce – while also making it clear that she’s equally interested in him – is compelling enough to keep his attention firmly planted on her.
Even once it’s clear that Nubia’s polished façade is something she puts on for the public, to hide the scarred, vulnerable woman underneath, Stephen persists. He isn’t intimated by the model-turned-mogul’s aggressive personality – it only draws him in further.
Relationships aren’t even on Nubia’s radar. She has friends, family, and her steadily growing brand. After a failed engagement to the man she thought she’d build her life with – an athlete, at that – she’s not interested in anything beyond having her physical needs met.
Unavoidable chemistry and close proximity work in tandem to bring these two onto the same wavelength. With the eyes of the world watching, will they deny the obvious, or give in to the inevitable seductions of passion, companionship, and love?

Faye Bostic knows that not everyone approves of her position as editor-in-chief of Missy Magazine. She has to stay strong, even if it makes people think she’s hard-hearted…but when she hires Dalton Cartwright, her sexy young intern makes her feel anything but cold.
Dalton admires his take-charge, independent boss. Like her, he wants to earn his own success. But her beauty makes him want impossible, forbidden things that fire his fantasies.
Temptation is a constant battle, until the night they finally give in to their desires. Their forbidden relationship quickly becomes a target for everyone who’d like to pull Faye down. She and Dalton are up against jealous rivals, a press hungry for scandal—and their own secrets.
Laurel Cremant is an opinionated author and reader of romance with a wicked sense of humor. RNIC was smart (or crazy) to bring her on as a blogger. In 2016 she took over the management of this site and relishes her new title of “Overlord of Awesome”
