Saint Paul, Minnesota, is a quiet and comfortable city rich with history. Little known are the days when prostitution was a thriving business hidden in storefront saunas and health clubs. For decades, madams and business owners made hundreds of thousands of dollars selling sex. But as the twenty-first century drew near, Saint Paul officials were desperate to shut down the trade and rid its city of the stigma surrounding the sex-for-money industry. Special investigation units were formed, sting operations commenced, and lawsuits were filed. Caught in the crosshairs of a city determined to stop her, Linda May Spencer fought for twenty years against an institution set on taking her down. A traumatic birth, a painful childhood, and persistent drug addiction are the foundations on which Linda May Spencer built her life. A promise to provide a better future for her own children fueled a fire within that pushed Linda to the edge of morality, sobriety, and life, time and time again. But Linda's fall was more than just her crimes. Living a double life, constantly reminded of her pain, Linda turned to drugs to conceal her struggle. Ultimately, Linda had nothing left-no business, no money, and no family. She'd fallen as far as a person could go. Until one day she decided to get up.Show more
Tessa Bailey is back with a Schitt’s Creek-inspired rom-com about a Hollywood “It Girl” who’s cut off from her wealthy family and exiled to a small Pacific Northwest beach town... where she butts heads with a surly, sexy local who thinks she doesn’t belong. As seen on E!Online, PopSugar, CNN, EliteDaily, Vulture, Buzzfeed, Bustle, the Nerd Daily, PARADE, LA Magazine, Country Living, USA Today, and more! Piper Bellinger is fashionable, influential, and her reputation as a wild child means the paparazzi are constantly on her heels. When too much champagne and an out-of-control rooftop party lands Piper in the slammer, her stepfather decides enough is enough. So he cuts her off, and sends Piper and her sister to learn some responsibility running their late father’s dive bar... in Washington. Piper hasn’t even been in Westport for five minutes when she meets big, bearded sea captain Brendan, who thinks she won’t last a week outside of Beverly Hills. So what if Piper can’t do math, and the idea of sleeping in a shabby apartment with bunk beds gives her hives. How bad could it really be? She’s determined to show her stepfather—and the hot, grumpy local—that she’s more than a pretty face. Except it’s a small town and everywhere she turns, she bumps into Brendan. The fun-loving socialite and the gruff fisherman are polar opposites, but there’s an undeniable attraction simmering between them. Piper doesn’t want any distractions, especially feelings for a man who sails off into the sunset for weeks at a time. Yet as she reconnects with her past and begins to feel at home in Westport, Piper starts to wonder if the cold, glamorous life she knew is what she truly wants. LA is calling her name, but Brendan—and this town full of memories—may have already caught her heart.Show more

Worse, she's a mom who's beautiful, intelligent, and makes him feel more alive than he's ever known. A self-confirmed bachelor, he finds himself uneasily contemplating a very different partnership.

I'm not saying he's wrong, but there's more to me than a few youthful misdemeanors. I'm going to prove just that to the town and the sexy, surly man who thinks there's nothing to me but fluff-all without surrendering to the undeniable attraction to Mateo that makes me catch my breath every time him looks my way.

My passion in life? Saving animals. I'm the person they call when a cat has kittens under their shed or a stray dog shows up with no collar and tags. Be it dark or rain or foggy night, I'm there for friends of fur, scale, and feather alike. I just never expected one of my rescue calls to be a werewolf pup. Not like I knew it when I showed up, but something was definitely different about him. His snout was too round, his ears too pointed, and I'd thought he was a coydog; one of those dog-coyote mixes that showed up now and then. That was before he bit me. And even an alpha pup can change an innocent mortal like me into a shapeshifting powerhouse. Flung into a new world where submission might mean death and pack politics rule the secret supernatural society, I'm lost but not alone. With the pup's father, Hudson, and his packmates leading me through this strange environment, I feel as though I could take on the world. They have everything I need; confidence, power, money. And I'm everything they could ever want. I haven't been on a date in years, and now I have four gorgeous, rich werewolves chasing me. What's a girl to do? Contains mature themes.Show more

SHE'S A CITY GIRL WITH NO IDEA WHAT SHE'S IN FOR . . . All Sarah MacFarland wants is to escape her fearful life in Boston and start fresh with a new identity. Answering an advertisement for a mail order bride seems like the perfect solution, until she meets her soon-to-be husband-a ruggedly handsome, strapping farmer who leaves her breathless on their wedding night. But is it possible that two tormented souls can find happiness, when all they know is betrayal, and when trust is the only way out of a tumultuous past that simply won't stay buried?

Magic ruined my life once. I can't let it happen again. I grew up chasing the fae through the garden, pretending I saw ghosts in the house, and dreaming of dragons. That's all long behind me now. Mother's spells didn't save her and, in turn, I dedicated myself to science. Work as a paleontologist is everything I dreamed it could be. You find solid facts buried thousands of years ago. You can quantify those facts. It's real. You can touch it, prove it, and most of all; you know it works. My team never meant to find a nest of dragon eggs at a dig site. And I'm the only one who recognizes what they are. Now, I have a fire-breathing freak chasing me out of the sane world and into his. Worse, he has a whole bunch of friends with him. Why? Because I'm the only one who can help them retrieve the nest. They're dragging me back into the supernatural, a place I never wanted to see again and one I didn't truly believe in. Drowning in debt like so many others, I need the money the dragons are offering-but not if it burns me down in the process. Contains mature themes.Show more
It started off as a battle of wits. Me: the ordinary girl with a big mouth against him: the sexy bastard with a big . . . ego. I thought I'd hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London. That is, until he sat next to me. Gabriel Scott: handsome as sin, cold as ice. Nothing and no one gets to him. Ever. He's a legend in his own right, the manager of the biggest rock band in the world, and an arrogant ass who looks down his nose at me. I thought I'd give him hell for one, long flight. I didn't expect to like him. I didn't expect to want him. But the biggest surprise? He wants me too. Only in a way I didn't see coming. If I accept his proposal, I leave myself open to falling for the one man I can't manage. But I'm tempted to say yes. Because the real man beneath those perfect suits and that cool façade just might be the best thing that's ever happened to me. And I just might be the only one who can melt the ice around his heart. Let the battle begin . . . Contains mature themes.Show more
