She has been hurt. She has a past of lies, cheating, and pain. She has severe panic attacks when she’s in enclosed spaces, a side effect of a horrible accident caused by a man she thought she loved. Quinn Carpenter has a distinct type: bad boys with dark hair, dark eyes, and tattoos. Tyler, her friend with benefits, fits the bill perfectly. They have fun together and they both know that fun is where their relationship begins and ends.
Quinn’s life is exactly how she wants it until she meets Reed Porter, the typical pretty boy with blue eyes, blonde hair, and zero tattoos. He is the exact opposite of everything Quinn likes.
So why can’t she get the frustrating, preppy, blue-eyed Reed out of her head?
She isn’t interested in commitment. She doesn’t want a relationship. But Reed challenges her, he puts her in her place, and he makes her nervous. The confident Quinn is never nervous around men, so what is it about Reed that has her questioning everything? And what will be the side effects of attempting to juggle two men at the same time?

Love, Honor, & Hope - A Benefit for the United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation
Eight authors are joining forces to support one fantastic cause. Beginning June 24, 2014, Love, Honor, & Hope, an anthology of eight full-length novels, will be available for 30 days at the low price of $0.99. That’s right, just 99 pennies. The best part is that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation.
PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, affects approximately 19% of the military men and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq—and that’s just those who have been diagnosed. The percentage is expected to grow as more of our military members seek treatment. It’s a heartbreaking trend for the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, especially with benefits being cut and promotions being threatened.
The United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation is a non-profit charity that focuses on providing FREE care to combat military members, both active and veterans. They can’t do it alone, which is why we’ve made the decision to step up and do something. All eight of the authors have their personal reasons for supporting this cause.
Cherime MacFarlane, author of Heart of the Hunter said, “For me, it’s the way a very quiet man, my uncle, receded into the background whenever a family function took place. I did understand he came back from WWII that way. A young man, easy going and quick to laugh became a recluse. My father also served in WWI, as did a second uncle who returned far from the mischievous young man he was before the war claimed his youth. I was a young mother during the Vietnam era. I had friends who did not come back from Vietnam. I had other friends who did come home but were permanently damaged by the things they saw. For me, this is an opportunity to give back something to the men who served their country when the call came. My uncles and father are gone now, but I do hope, in some small way, to pay it forward for them. This is a tiny step, but as the man once said, every journey begins with that first step.”
It’s easy to sit back and talk about helping our veterans and active military members. To step up and help is something all together different. We are answering the call for help.
Will you answer? All it takes is for you to log on to Amazon or Barnes & Noble and spend 99 cents, and then hopefully share the great news on our labor of love. Not only will you receive eight full-length novels for your enjoyment, you will also tell our men and women who suffer from this terrible and debilitating illness that we’ve got their backs.
Love, Honor, & Hope is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble from June 24 to July 23. It includes the following full-length novels:

This is such a powerful story. A young girl runs away from a mother who had never been an actual mother to her. She has been on her own all her life so leaving the place she shared with her mother didn't seem like much of a difference. We follow her while she navigates her life on the streets. The story is so realistic that I wonder if Klass was inspired by someones actual life. I can't wait to read the next installment of baby girl!
Stefan and Kannak MacGreagor's story continues. It's time for the eldest daughter Catrina to choose a husband.

Karr Olney and his brothers wash up on shore and is threatening to steal all their hearts. I know they took mine! I just love Talbott's books. Her vikings are incredible and I can read them over and over. Best of all I have no problem allowing my daughter to read it. They are all wonderful love stories for girls of any age. Her books aren't only romance. For me these books easily keep my attention and I always looks forward to the next one. Talbott is one of my one click authors.

This is the first book by Helmer I have read and I loved it. I don't usually read contemporary romance and I just loved this story. Erich Sloan is an author that lives off the grid in the wilds of Alaska. He no longer wants to be a part of the world. Until her. This story got my attention right from the start and I couldn't put it down until it was over. Some books I read have unnecessary information and I get bored or doesn't give me enough and leaves me wanting more. This book was perfect! From beginning to end it was just a perfectly written love story. I can't wait to read more Wild Woman of Alaska from Helmer.
This was action packed start to finish and what I can tell is going to be an amazing series. This book has mystery, intrigue, comedy, and a steamy romance. Let's not forget the butt kicking!! Micah and Ella are two unlikely partners who just happen to have a natural attraction for each other. They both have a past that they don't fully know yet, but discover it together. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. The world Pryce created is so interesting and I can't wait to find out more about it.
Elle is such an amazing character. She knows who she is and what she is meant to do. Things seem to get in her way and her path definitely isn't a straight line, but of course if it did then we wouldn't have Elle. I loved Elle's world and I think you will too. If you're looking for an amazing paranormal romance this one can't be missed!
Hanna had a rough time in Dark Cravings. This book gives you her after story. She is trying to deal and make sense of what she went through and how it has affected her. Making bad choices and trying to numb her emotions didn't seem to be working. She finds help and discovers who she really is. Hanna doesn't seem to be able to catch a break, but in the end I think she finds what she really needs. If you loved the first book you can't miss this one. It's all told from Hanna's point of view and it's wonderful. I loved getting to know Hannah in this story. I hope to see more stories from the other characters in the series. Another amazingly sexy paranormal romance from Pryce. Can't wait for the next.
This was such an entertaining book!! It's cute and whimsical. It had comedy and mystery. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. It's an amazing start to what I hope is going to be a series! Of course my favorite character was Ginger. Ginger is so funny and cheeky I couldn't get enough of her. I borrowed this book from amazon prime. After reading it I bought it. I had to have this book in my personal library. If you're looking for a whimsical paranormal romance this is the one you can't miss. I can't wait to read more from Lutz.
