New from Ana Leigh - The Frasers are back!

One Night With a Sweet-Talking Man by Ana LeighBriefly ashore in San Francisco to visit his family, Jed meets Caroline Collins and her eight-year-old son. Beautiful Caroline doesn't have a husband in sight and she seems surprisingly hostile toward Jed, who is used to being thought of as quite a catch. But there's something intriguing about her and the boy, something that convinces Jed he should stay awhile.

Caroline has never revealed the identity of her son's father, not even to her own family. As independent in spirit as she is beautiful, all she wants is to continue running the family's lumber mill and raising her son herself. But if handsome, devil-may-care Jed Fraser ever takes a good hard look at her son, everything she's struggled for could be ruined. She's convinced that the best thing she could do is stay far, far away from the sexy Jed — but her body is singing a different song...

He's talked his way into her heart. Can he do the same with her bed?

Look for at your favorite bookseller starting February 26th! Also available at and .

New Book Today: PREY by Lurlene McDaniel

PREY by Lurlene McDanielPredator or prey?
Things aren't always what they seem.

A teacher is supposed to impart a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge. It’s a bit different with Ms. Lori Settles. All the kids are talking about how hot she is—and she is especially interested in Ryan Piccoli. When she starts giving Ryan extra attention, he’s feeling more than happy—at first. He’s used to being the class clown, but really he’s a loner. One day after school, the friendship with Lori Settles goes farther than he ever expected. She’s his teacher. She’s at least twice his age. Intimacy with a teacher is wrong, yet it feels so good in every way. Soon, Lori is making demands and Ryan begins to feel overwhelmed, but Ryan refuses to even admit anything is going on. Something immoral is going on and before too long the choices made will change lives forever.

New from , #1 author of inspirational fiction for young adults, is available today from your favorite bookseller!

New Book + Signings (Robin Wells)

Between the Sheets by Robin Wells - available now!Dirty laundry can really put your life through the wringer.

The Most Notorious Woman in America ... There are probably worse things than having the entire country think that you're the girl whose "services" gave the president-elect a fatal heart attack in the sack—but at the moment, Emma Jamison can't think of any. A terrible mistake has made her the face of a national scandal, leaving her with no choice but to retreat to the small town where her grandmother lives to get a fresh start.

The Straight-Arrow D.A. ... Max Duval is up for election in Chartreuse, Louisiana, and he can't afford a scandal. But Emma, with her disarming smile and razor wit, is impossible to ignore—especially since his grandfather and her grandmother are starting a romantic romp of their own, and a Geraldo-wannabe is chronicling everyone's every move for the tabloids. Is Emma really as innocent as she claims? Can Max follow his heart and still win the election? Sometimes the only way to sort out the dirty laundry is to dive in… .
