If someone had told me a year ago that I was about to fall in love, go on an epic road trip, ride a Triceratops, sing on a bar, and lose my virginity, I would have assumed they were on drugs. 

Well, that is, until I met Beckham. 

Beck was mostly to blame for my recklessness. Gorgeous, clever, undeniably charming Beck barreled into my life as if it were his mission to make sure I never took living for granted. He showed me that there were no boundaries, rules were for the spineless, and a kiss was supposed to happen when I least expected.

We set out on a road trip with nothing to lose and no guarantees of tomorrow. 

Our road trip was about young, reckless love. The kind of love that burns bright. 

The kind of love that no road-map could bring me back from.

For Willow, bartending on Anchor Island is just the right refuge for hiding from her past. She certainly wasn’t looking for the complications of a relationship with Randy, the local fitness-club owner, to keep her there. But soon Randy becomes the anchor that holds Willow down (in a good way), and we get caught up in their sexy blossoming romance. I was also drawn to the tight island community that bands together and is willing to embrace an outsider as their own.

Terri was advised early in her career that romance books about everyday, ordinary people don’t sell. I’m glad she didn’t listen and instead stayed true to her path and her passion. A stroll on the beaches of Anchor Island is an escape I’d happily take. For your next break, immerse yourself in Terri’s charming small-town world, filled with characters who will walk straight into your heart.






Angel Whittaker earned his scars the hard way, but the scars that can't be seen are the ones that haunt him the most. Since he moved to Fool's Gold, California, he's cobbled together a life for himself as a bodyguard trainer. If he's not exactly happy, at least his heart is safe. 
Working with pro-football superstars taught tough-talking PR woman Taryn Crawford one thing—she can go toe-to-toe with any man. But then dark, dangerous former Special Ops Angel targets her for seduction…and challenges her to resist his tempting kisses. 
Even in four-inch heels, Taryn never backs down. Unless, somehow, Angel can convince her that surrender might feel even better than victory.





The first time it happened, it seemed like an impossible miracle. Bills were piling up, adding up to more money than I could ever make. Mom's hospital bills. My baby brother's tuition. My tuition. Rent. Electricity. All of it on my shoulders. And I had just lost my job. There was no hope, no money in my account, no work to be found. And then, just when I thought all hope was lost, I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of ten thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.," and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing…except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

If you receive a mysterious check, for enough money to erase all your worries, would you cash it?

I did.

The next month, I received another check, again from VRI Incorporated. It too contained a single word: "belong."

A third check, the next month. This time, two words. Four letters. "To me."

The checks kept coming. The notes stopped. Ten thousand dollars, every month. A girl gets used to that, real quick. It let me pay the bills without going into debt. Let me keep my baby brother in school and Mom's hospice care paid for. How do you turn down what seems like free money, when you're desperate? You don't. I didn't.

And then, after a year, there was a knock on my door. A sleek black limousine sat on the curb in front of my house. A driver stood in front of me, and he spoke six words: "It's time to pay your debt."

Would you have gotten in?

I did.

It turns out $120,000 doesn't come free.





Stephanie Plum has her sights set on catching a notorious mob boss. If she doesn’t take him down, he may take her out.
 
New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore “Uncle Sunny” Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it’s up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in—not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because—just Stephanie’s luck—the godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.

It’s not just Uncle Sunny giving Stephanie the run-around. Security specialist Ranger needs her help to solve the bizarre death of a top client’s mother, a woman who happened to play bingo with Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur. Before Stephanie knows it, she’s working side by side with Ranger and Grandma at the senior center, trying to catch a killer on the loose—and the bingo balls are not rolling in their favor.

With bullet holes in her car, henchmen on her tail, and a giraffe named Kevin running wild in the streets of Trenton, Stephanie will have to up her game for the ultimate takedown.





The wickedly handsome Grayson brothers are all grown up—but will they ever give up their bad-boy ways? Set in the picturesque Cape Cod town of Star Harbor, Elisabeth Barrett’s contemporary romance novels weave sensual stories of desire and redemption. Now, with the entire series collected in one sizzling eBook bundle, there’s a Grayson—or four—for all seasons.

DEEP AUTUMN HEAT

Worldly, famous, and notorious with the ladies, celebrity chef Sebastian Grayson had planned a weekend of fishing and relaxation with his brothers. But Lexie Meyers, a local café owner with kissable lips and a “get lost” attitude, makes him want to forget his culinary empire and create some magic with her. Sebastian fires up his charm and even dares her to join him in a televised cook-off. Lexie’s been burned in the past and flings just aren’t her thing. Too bad Sebastian can’t resist a challenge.
 
BLAZE OF WINTER
 
Frustrated with her life in Boston, social worker Avery Newbridge welcomes the opportunity to help manage the Star Harbor Inn—but she doesn’t count on distraction in the form of Theo Grayson. Not only does the gorgeous, green-eyed author have a talent for writing swashbuckling adventures, Theo also has a soft spot for bighearted damsels in distress. With every kiss and heated whisper Theo promises her his heart . . . if only Avery is willing to open up and accept it.
 
LONG SIMMERING SPRING

Dr. Julie Kensington remembers when the Grayson brothers were nothing but trouble. Back in high school, Cole’s rugged sex appeal set her heart ablaze. Now Julie’s finally ready to embrace her wild side, and Sheriff Cole Grayson—ex-military, tormented, and sexier than ever—is just the man to show her the way, unleashing years of pent-up cravings. Neither of them counted on falling in love, but together, they can overcome the past . . . and build a future.
 
SLOW SUMMER BURN

Cameron Stahl is the last sort of woman DEA agent Val Grayson ever dreamed he’d fall for. A beautiful socialite and successful entrepreneur, she’s just opened her second boutique in Star Harbor. But one searing look from Val shows her exactly what’s missing from her life. When Cam realizes she has the insider connections to help Val take down a major drug player, he can’t stop her from putting herself in danger. But all Val cares about is saving the woman he loves before it’s too late.
