Short-Term Shag: A Hot Nerd/Curvy Girl Romance
(The Rental Rendezvous Series)
This single mom just might be royally screwed…
I’m a single mom who works hard to provide for her kid. When my son is away for a week of camp and a friend offers me his condo with a view of the beach for the week, of course I take him up on it! I’m single, not stupid. It’s all fun and games until I get trapped in an elevator with my particular brand of catnip: the hot nerd….
One thing leads to another which leads to shenanigans in his luxury condo. After a long weekend together, he says he wants more. And, oh, I could fall so hard for this guy. Too bad he doesn’t know the real me or just how complicated my life is. When he whisks me away for a weekend abroad, I realize I’m not the only one keeping secrets. And his just might be bigger than mine…
Princess And The Player
A masquerade ball brings together an NFL player and a penniless princess in this smart and sexy romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills.
Levelheaded Francesca Lane never thought she’d miss her own wedding. But when her fiancé betrays her, she puts on her wedding dress and ditches the altar for a masquerade ball—at an exclusive lifestyle club.
There, she meets unknown-to-her NFL star Tuck Avery, dressed as a prince and hiding behind a mask—he’s there to celebrate his birthday. For one night, Francesca and Tuck indulge in a wickedly incognito affair. No names. No strings. And the masks don’t come off.
Unfortunately, Francesca realizes quickly that her masked prince is the wealthy jock who lives in the penthouse of her apartment building. His hobbies include parties and supermodels—or so the tabloids say. Getting tangled up with a shallow jerk is the last thing Francesca needs right now, so she vows to keep Tuck from recognizing her (not that she’s his type anyway).
But fate has a teeny-tiny trick up her sleeve…a plus sign on a pregnancy test. Can this tormented prince accept love, or will he push his princess away forever?
I shouldn’t be here.
Let me rephrase that…
I never wanted to be here.
I didn’t ask for any of this.
Not the society I was born into.
Definitely not the academy I’m supposed to attend.
And sure as hell not the group I’m forced to play nice with.
Unfortunately, one too many school suspensions has catapulted me into the world I swore I’d never live in.
Boulder Cove Academy: Where The Lawless reign and those beneath them are ash between their fingertips.
The three leaders of this place—Crew, Jagger, and Neo—have always been an aching thorn in my side.
When things get ugly, I have no choice but to turn to the boys I loathe.
Acceptance means I become a slave to their darkest desires.
Bones to rattle.
A mind to shake.
In the thick of it all, I begin to see the truth. They never intended to help me.
They only want to destroy me.
One game at a time.
