Over the course of hundreds of years the past lives of the three reincarnates have proven time and time again that their love is beyond tragic. It’s fatal.

SpeedSpeed of My Heart by Erika Trevathan

After clawing her way out of an abusive relationship, the last thing Mara Campbell is looking for is love. Even after a year, dating seems like a laughable prospect at best. She has no interest in getting wrapped up in another emotionally draining relationship; and that’s all Mara ever seems to find when it comes to guys — losers, who seem to suck the life right out of her. No, Mara is much more interested in training relentlessly to pursue a career in dance — and she’ll let nothing stand in her way.

Cole Davenport is a drop-dead gorgeous professional racecar driver; who’s an ace on the track and even better when it comes to driving Mara’s heart rate up to top speeds. But, while Mara tries to juggle between advancing her dance career and not losing her heart to a guy who’s use to winning; someone else has an entirely different agenda where she’s concerned. One that could test the boundaries of her trust and change everything…

sweetSweet Contradiction by Peggy Martinez

When Beth Michaels high tailed it out of the hole-in-the-road town she grew up in, she only had two goals. One-get as far away as quickly as possible, and two-never set foot in her parent’s home again. But when she receives a heart breaking call from her childhood best friend, Jen, she has no choice but to turn her ’56 Ford pickup back in the direction of Salem, Missouri to attend a funeral.

There’s a new local in town when Beth arrives, and suddenly, it ain’t all that easy for her to remember her rules for dating. #1. Cookie-cutter-perfect guys ain’t her type. #2. Tie wearin’ and church frequentin’ is an automatic dismissal. #3. Most importantly, never date anyone from small minded, conservative, Bible-thumping towns like Salem. Unfortunately, Matthew Wright breaks all her rules and then some.

Matt might be from a small town and have small town values, but that doesn’t mean he fits into a little slot of Beth’s preconceived notions. After all, ever so often good guys are good. Now if he could just convince Beth to let go of her past and give him a chance, he’s pretty sure there’s a whole lotta sweet under that prickly exterior. His own … Sweet Contradiction.

alwaysAlways by Ellery Rhodes

A new university, a fresh start, and no falling in love.

After a freshman year from hell, Juliet Stowe’s heart is in a million pieces. She transfers to a new school, determined to leave the past behind.
But when she’s paired up with Lucas McNamara, the ‘boy next door’ all deliciously grown up, she knows she’s in trouble. Back then she didn’t understand why her mother, who used to work for Lucas’ family, told her not to get attached. But they were inseparable -until her mother was fired because the McNamaras don’t mix with the help.

He never thought he’d see her again…

Lucas McNamara knew there was something familiar about his biology partner and is floored when it hits him. She’s ‘Julie’–the barefoot beauty who was unlike any girl he’d ever met then or since.

While years have passed and he’s far from the carefree kid that Juliet once knew, one thing remains the same. He wants her. He’s always wanted her–but he’s the heir to the McNamara multi-million dollar empire and his family is hell bent on keeping them apart.

18113187Demanding Ransom by Megan Squires

Sometimes life takes things away from you.

In nineteen-year-old Maggie Carson’s case, it’s taken more than its fair share.

Determined to move forward, Maggie embarks on her first year of college, hoping to finally put her past behind her, exactly where it belongs.

But that’s hard to do when the present is just as difficult. And even harder when someone like Ran, the gorgeous paramedic that keeps crossing Maggie’s path, challenges her to face things head on, rather than bury them like she always does.

Ran hasn’t had a perfect life either. But there’s something different about him, and something different about the way he makes Maggie feel. Maybe meeting Ran is life’s little gift for Maggie—a sort of consolation prize for enduring everything she’s had to go through.

But things don’t come easy for Maggie. Why should love be the exception? And just when everything starts to settle, it’s all turned on its head once again.

If there is one thing Ran has taught Maggie, it’s that you can’t sit on the sidelines of your own existence. When life takes something that’s yours, you have every right to demand it back.

Only for Maggie, that is easier said than done.

forbiddenForbidden by Amy Miles

Roseline Enescue didn’t ask to become an Immortal, to have all of the guests at her wedding slaughtered, or be forced into marriage with a man whose lust for blood would one day ignite the vampire legend. Willing to risk everything for a chance at a normal life, Roseline escapes to America. Terrified her husband Vladimir will find her, Roseline enrolls as a senior in Chicago’s elite Rosewood Prep school. Mingling with humans is the last place he would look for her.But her transition into the human world isn’t easy. Mortal men flock after her while cutthroat girls plot her demise. Yet Roseline remains relatively unfazed by the petty hysteria until she falters into the arms of Gabriel Marston, reluctant MVP quarterback, unwilling ladies man, sensitive artist in hiding, and blah, blah, blah. Troubled by the bond that pulls her towards the mortal boy, Roseline tries to ignore him, but Gabriel is persistent. As their lives entwine, Roseline begins to realize that Gabriel is much more than he appears. His ability to toss a football the entire length of the field and grind concrete into dust pales in comparison to the glowing blue cross tattoo that mysteriously appears on his forearms. Despite the forbidden bond between them, Roseline can’t help wondering what Gabriel is: He’s not human. He’s not Immortal. So just what is he?
