A cold case leads to blazing-hot temptation in this novel of romantic suspense from bestselling author Kathy Clark. For readers of Nora Roberts and Karen Robards, Almost Forever pairs a rugged lawman with a woman who may just be a murderer. Justin Archer is a Texas Ranger through and through, a loyal man devoted to the dangerous job he loves. But when the grisly discovery of a skeleton in a local vineyard turns an old missing-persons case into a vicious homicide, Justin finds that the toughest challenge of his professional career will be keeping his hands off his chief suspect: the dead man’s beautiful, young trophy wife. Did Lori Roberts kill for vast material gain? The only thing Justin knows for sure is that their chemistry is instantaneous—and overpowering. Lori worked hard to build a new life for herself and her daughter. She turned her husband’s struggling vineyard into a thriving enterprise, and now she stands to lose it all over something that happened eight years ago. Justin could lock her up and throw away the key, but Lori desperately wants to trust him. More than that, she wants to let him into her wounded heart. Because Lori’s been running from the past for a long time . . . and she’s ready to start living for the future.

For romantic-suspense junkies and fans of Nora Roberts and Karen Robards, bestselling author Kathy Clark kicks off her Austin Heroes series with a pulse-pounding tale of two wounded souls tempted by a dangerous proposition: new love. DEA agent Nick Archer puts his life on the line every day. A former Marine, he fears nothing . . . except commitment. Nick has no trouble finding women eager to warm his bed, and no problem sending them on their way the morning after. Relationships don’t mix with risky careers, a fact Nick learned the hard way after his marriage fell apart. He’d go it alone if it weren’t for his new K-9 partner—and the stunning trainer who makes Nick sit up and take notice. Just like her service dogs, Jamie Chambers knows how to sniff out trouble. From the moment Nick swaggers into her kennel, she knows he’s heartbreak waiting to happen, and he wastes no time getting under her skin. Hell, he doesn’t even like dogs. As a cop’s widow, Jamie has felt the sting of loss in the line of duty, yet she recognizes something of her own pain in Nick’s smoldering gaze. Jamie knows there are no guarantees in life. But a moment of pleasure, however fleeting, holds the promise of forever—and for that, Jamie’s willing to take the plunge. Praise for After Love “Fast-paced, riveting . . . Playful dialogue between Nick and Jamie certainly kept me entertained, and I loved every moment they were together as their banter increased the sexual tension between them. . . . [The author] did justice to their instant and intense chemistry. . . . I would recommend After Love by Kathy Clark if you love romantic suspense, or are a fan of Nora Roberts or Karen Robards.”—Harlequin Junkie “A sexy adventure between two damaged hearts . . . Nick and Jamie’s attraction was instantly palpable.”—TJ Loves to Read “A fresh approach to . . . romantic suspense.”—Books and Spoons Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Lifetime comic book geek Truman Thompson knows that his future as a shifter depends upon him finding a mate. Without one, he can’t unlock his supernatural powers and rise to his full potential. But finding the missing half of his heart won’t be easy. His Asperger’s syndrome prevents him from easily understanding the feelings of others, and threatens to condemn him to a lifetime of loneliness and wasted possibilities. Unless Luke Lancaster has his way. Ex football star Luke had everything a young man could want. Athleticism, money, and even a career that fulfilled his heart’s passion for competition. His world is shattered when an injury left him with a mangled foot and knee, and he’s forced to earn money to care for his ailing mother by attending conventions as a washed-up has-been. When he arrives in “Whispering Hills,” the mysterious town known for uniting soulmates, finding true love is the last thing on his mind. But there’s something about Truman that he can’t ignore… Could this lonely, comic-book obsessed omega be the love of his life, the man with whom he is destined to live happily ever after? If only it were that easy. Note: “My Shifter Hero” is a steamy shifter Mpreg 65,000-word novel set in a paranormal Omegaverse.

Author: Tracy Wolff
Do nice guys always finish last? In the new Extreme Risk novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tracy Wolff, a burnt-out underdog and a vulnerable tomboy defy the pressure to be perfect and go after what they really want. Bighearted and easygoing, Luc Jennings is falling behind in a family of serious overachievers. While he may be decent enough at snowboarding to turn pro and rack up some sponsors, he’s never topped any podiums—unlike his friends Z, Ash, and Cam. Luc’s always been head over heels for Cam Bradley, but she’s never seen him as anything more than a friend. Now, after years of coming in second, Luc can’t take it anymore—especially if it means watching Cam chase another guy. Cam hangs out almost exclusively with dudes, and that’s fine by her. She’d much rather be shredding at the Olympics than primping in the mirror. Cam’s wildest dreams have a way of coming true—except when it comes to getting her longtime crush and best friend, Z Michaels, to notice her. Then her mother suddenly shows up after being gone for, like, ever, and Cam’s whole world comes crashing down. Desperate for a place to lay low, she turns to the one person who’s always had her back. Try as he might to move on, Luc could never leave Cam hanging. He lets her crash at his place—and it isn’t long before she winds up in his bed. With Cam running scared and her icy facade starting to melt at last, Luc’s determined to finally win the only prize that matters. Praise for Slashed “Nothing is hotter than best friends who become lovers, and Tracy Wolff nailed it with Slashed. The story is sexy, emotional, and impossible to put down.”—Stina Lindenblatt, author of the Pushing Limits series “Tracy Wolff does it again. Slashed is a sexy, emotional, and touching ride with a huge splash of girl power! I loved getting to know this group of friends over the first two Extreme Risk books, and was thrilled to finally see Luc and Cam get their moment. I read it twice in four days!”—Sophia Henry, author of Delayed Penalty “This fast-paced, friends to lovers, new adult sports romance was so entertaining I couldn’t put it down.”—Unquietly Me “Slashed looks at fated lovers who fell into the gaping hole of disillusionment and doubt only to come away with the possibility of a promise of forever and a happily ever after.”—The Reading Cafe “Once again I enjoyed this story by Tracy Wolff. . . . If you enjoy sporting reads, you should jump into this series and try it for yourself.”—Nomi’s Paranormal Palace “My first book by Tracy Wolff—and I really liked it! . . . You don’t have to know or even like snowboarding to enjoy this book, nor do you have to have read the first two books in the series.”—Becky on Books and Quilts “Slashed was a fine story. Both Cam and Luc were likable, and with their faults they felt real. There is enough drama and steamy scenes to make this an excellent fun and fast read.”—Total Book Geek “Did I mention it’s also a second chance romance!? Just slay me now. I didn’t put the book down even once.”—Wild Heart Reviews

Five-hundred years ago, sorcery began to fade from the world. As technology prevailed, combustion engines and computers replaced enchanted plows and spell books. Real magicians were hunted almost to extinction. Science became the primary system of belief, and the secrets of spell-casting were forgotten. That is ... until now. Sorcery for Beginners is no fantasy or fairy tale. Written by arcane arts preservationist and elite mage Euphemia Whitmore (along with her ordinary civilian aide Matt Harry), this book is a how-to manual for returning magic to an uninspired world. It's also the story of Owen Macready, a seemingly average 13-year-old who finds himself drawn into a centuries-long war when he uses sorcery to take on a school bully. Owen's spell casting attracts the attention of a ruthless millionaire and a secret society of anti-magic mercenaries, all of whom wish to use Sorcery for Beginners to alter the course of world history forever.
