I love Penelope Douglas’s writing, from her new adult to her angsty contemporary, her words are gold. So when she published Birthday Girl, a taboo romance I was all in. It’s a beautifully executed story with layers and depth, and it packs an emotional, angsty punch. Pike Lawson is the ultimate dirty talking hero. Fiercely protective, ultra-alpha and almost twice the age of the heroine, Penelope balanced the fine line of dominant older man with chemistry that explodes off the pages.
“You don’t have a clue what to do with me, do you?”
“Oh, I may be out of practice, little girl,” he bites out in a threatening tone, “but I think I’ll figure it out.”

From New York Times Bestselling author Penelope Douglas comes a new forbidden love story…
He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.
He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe.
He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work.
I have to stop this. It can’t happen.
My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable.
Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one.
I took her in, because I thought I was helping.
She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement.
As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to.
The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me.
But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight.
And her boyfriend’s father.
Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house.
*BIRTHDAY GIRL is a stand-alone, contemporary romance suitable for ages 18+.

Selecting a favorite dirty talker is like picking a favorite dessert. There are so many delicious and tantalizing ones to choose from! But I’m currently obsessed with the tattooed dirty-talking drummer Landon Cox from Tara Leigh’s Rock Legend. His words to Pippa are the perfect combination of romantic and sexy. Tortured dirty-talking heroes are my kryptonite and Landon Cox managed to hit all the right buttons for me!

Series: Nothing But Trouble #2
Published by Forever Yours
Fans of Kristen Callihan, L.J. Shen, and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!
I'm no Prince Charming.
Most people know me as the drummer for Nothing but Trouble. Depending who you ask, I'm also a playboy, a loner, the life of the party, a screw-up, or according to my fans, "The Sexiest Rock Star on the Planet." Apparently, I'm a legend.
Am I surprised? Hell, no. It's a reputation I've earned behind my drum kit and behind closed doors. No one thought foster kid Landon Cox would become famous. Infamous, maybe. Notorious, probably. But successful? Never. No one except Piper Hastings. But I had to make a choice: my woman or my career. I picked fame and fortune... and spent every damn day since pretending I don't regret it.
Now fate's dropped Piper back into my life. I want to believe it's a second chance for me - for us. But while I can give her a few great nights, I can't give Piper a future.
Because there's a difference between a legend and a fairy tale...
Only one of them ends happily ever after.

In Maxen “Ash” Colchester, Sierra Simone has written a hero that is so elegantly, deliciously filthy, I have two words for anyone who hasn’t met him yet: I’m sorry. He is strong and seductive, powerful and predatory. I dare you to read this book (the entire series, actually) and not fall under Ash’s spell.

It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.
My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.
This is the story of an American Queen.
