Clandestine Lovers (Friendship Chronicles Book 3)

Think finding the perfect lover is difficult?

Ask Susan Webb--she knows it is. Lonely, tired of dull routine and dud men who only think with their lower brains, she takes a calculated risk to shake up her lackluster life.

Now she's set to take part in a reality dating show. Her objective: to find a good, honest man who's up for enjoying lots of sexy fun on the road to love. Failure is not an option.

One look at his older brother's Farmer Seeks a Wife candidate, and Tyler Penrith is intrigued. Prim and proper on the surface, she has a secret smile in her eyes and an exotic dancer sway to her step. And calamity follows her around like a tame dragon.

Susan might be in his brother's age group, but Tyler's not about to let Nolan waltz off with the first woman to snare his attention in ages.

As the show's ratings go through the roof, Susan finds herself falling for the wrong man--and her simple plan for happiness on the brink of falling apart.

Warning: Contains sibling rivalry, lots of sneaking around, sexy times in the great outdoors, a bright blue vibrator, and a reality show that's giving everyone something to talk about.

FAKE IT TILL I MAKE IT: A laugh out loud romantic comedy!

Alex Hunter was getting on just fine, blagging her way through life and enjoying her London lifestyle... perhaps a little too much.

But when she loses her job, gets dumped and is made homeless within the space of a fortnight, Alex reluctantly returns to her home town - a place she thought she'd left for good 10 years earlier. With barely a penny to her name...

Alex is surprised to find there are some advantages to moving back: reconnecting with old friends who had been such a big part of her teenage years. Although being back brings up old feelings Alex thought she had buried for good, feelings that should be well and truly left in the past - especially when it came to her old high school boyfriend, Lewis Ashworth.

Desperate to return to her London lifestyle, Alex takes advice from her old school friend Cody McKenzie, who suggests she only has to "fake it till she makes it" How hard can that be? After all, hadn't she been doing that for years?

Whether reluctantly trying to drive her nan's mobility scooter, putting bullying bosses in their place or looking for creative ways to avoid her mum's increasingly weird cooking, follow Alex's laugh-out-loud journey to "making it"

Running from Love

Aiden was what she was missing. The way her body responded to his touch, his kisses, it was exactly what she wanted. It helped that he was attractive, a hard-worker, and trustworthy too. Or so she thought.

Aiden is willing to give Jennifer whatever she wants, and everything she needs. Except, he has one secret he's keeping to himself.

Does Aiden's secret betray Jennifer's trust? Or protect his heart?

This book is intended for mature audiences.

Love Handles (A Romantic Comedy) (Oakland Hills)

The world of fitness apparel isn't ready for Beverly Lewis. She hates the gym, is nice to everybody, and shops at Ross Dress for Less. When she's not teaching preschool, she's wearing yoga pants . . . to nap in. So when she inherits her estranged grandfather's fitnesswear company in San Francisco, nobody expects her to keep it.

A former Olympic swimmer, Liam is Fite's executive vice president. Unlike Bev, he's devoted his life to Fite's success. Managing one little preschool teacher--and his attraction to her--shouldn't be an issue. Right? But Bev's tired of being underpaid and underrated, and refuses to step aside as an obedient figurehead. To everyone's shock and horror, she moves up to San Francisco, sets up an office, and dives into the business. Nothing--not mockery, not exercise, not sabotage, not a disastrously hot night with her aggravating VP--is going to scare her away. As Liam realizes she's tougher than she looks, he discovers that losing Fite might not be nearly as bad as losing her . . .

If You Say So, Professor!: The Adventures of Dr. Delphine Dupont 1

The gym session went well. Dressed in her black sports bra and tight black shorts, Dr. Dupont was actually conscious of several pairs of eyes on her as she began her 20-minute workout on the exercise bicycle. She didn't really mind the attention; in fact, she would not be wearing that rather skimpy sports bra if she had really objected. But quite a lot depended, naturally enough, on who was paying the attention. Today she was conscious that a young female student - not one of her own, incidentally - was glancing in her direction rather frequently. The girl was quite tall with an attractive figure, short fair hair, and smiling blue eyes. She was dressed as if for tennis - a white T-shirt with a collar, short sleeves, and a pleated short white skirt. And she was pulling some weights on a pulley just to the right of where Dr. Dupont was cycling.



The girl had such a ready smile that Dr. Dupont found herself smiling back from time to time. After her cycle ride, she walked over to the drinks fountain, which was a fair distance from the various exercise machines, and she sensed that someone had moved to stand behind her. Sure enough, it was that same girl, and Dr. Dupont was the first to speak: "You looked like you were pulling some pretty heavy stuff there!"



"Oh no, not really. I don't want to bulk up my arms too much."



"I know what you mean! But you look in really great shape," said Dr. Dupont in genuine admiration.



"Why thank you, I'm sure!" The girl looked genuinely delighted. "And so do you!"



Dr. Dupont smiled inwardly at the compliment but tried to appear unmoved.



"What's your major?" the girl asked.



Dr. Dupont smiled inwardly again. That sounded like a nice compliment! I guess this girl must think I'm a student - maybe a mature student!
