Not me though, Iโ€™ve made worse decisions before breakfast.

Marrying baseball phenom Cooper Lexington for his health insuranceโ€ฆ doesnโ€™t even rank Top 5.

But I canโ€™t afford to lose this marriage by falling in love.

You see, I made a promise to myselfโ€”one I plan on keepingโ€ฆ even if it ruins us.

โ€œDo you have the rings?โ€ 

โ€œOh.โ€ Mac looks back at her purse sitting in the chair. โ€œI do.โ€ She holds up a finger. โ€œGive me just a minute. Iโ€™m sorry.โ€ 

She drops my hand and sprints over to her bag, bringing outโ€ฆ Youโ€™ve got to be joking. 

My eyes widen, and I look at the judge, afraid he might actually ask me what the world is in her hand. But he has a better sense of humor than me, fighting off a grin as McKinley steps up and faces me, two black pieces of plastic clutched in her fingers. 

โ€œAre those zip ties?โ€ I try to appear like this level of crazy doesnโ€™t scare me. 

โ€œUh-huh.โ€ She smiles tightly. โ€œIf they can hold Luโ€™s bumper, they can hold this marriage together.โ€ 

Tomorrow, I will appreciate the thought, but today, Iโ€™m just shocked as the judge resumes, instructing each of us to recite vows and zip tie our โ€œringsโ€ on each otherโ€™s fingers.

โ€œI now pronounce you husband and wife. Mr. Lexington, you may kiss your bride.โ€ 

Hesitation should not be in my wheelhouse. Iโ€™m a closer, the best reliever in the bull pen. Being put in stressful situations is my Kool-Aid. But right here, in the middle of the judgeโ€™s chambers, my palms start sweating as I reach for my bride, slipping my arms around her hips and pulling them flush with mine. โ€œIโ€™mโ€”โ€

McKinleyโ€™s arms loop around my neck, her lips pressing gently against mine. Her warmthโ€ฆ well, I just react. Gripping her hips, I waste no time taking advantage of her silenceโ€ฆand compliance. Maybe it was zipping that dress, watching as my own hands hid the body my eyes lusted after. She wasnโ€™t mine, not in the sense a normal wife is to her husband, but tell that to my body. A mouth that will one day marry another man after we divorce. A mouth that canโ€™t help but pop off with outlandish comments and argumentative retorts. Yeah, my mind might know this marriage is a sham, but my bodyโ€”my tongue, using her surprise to slip in, claiming her intimately in front of witnessesโ€”knows weโ€™re in deep. This isnโ€™t a kiss meant for a first date or a deal between friends. The feel of her hands tangling in my hair as she

moans deep in her chest is intimateโ€”primal. This is a kiss shared only between a husband and a wife. 

And Iโ€™mโ€ฆ Iโ€™m screwed. 

A throat clears. โ€œCongratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Lexington. You may pick up your certificate at the front desk.โ€ 

We finally pull back, McKinley dabbing at her lips, her eyes widening as she stares at me. โ€œYes, thank you, Your Honor.โ€ 

With zip ties on our fingers, we grab our certificate, walk out of the courthouse to the car and shut ourselves inside, both of us silent on the way home.

Cover: RBA Designs

Photographer: Michelle Lancaster

From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes a single-dad, enemies-to-lovers stand-alone romance about a jaded club owner and his sonโ€™s teacherโ€ฆ

Eden Murphy came into my club looking to make some extra cash.

A girl like her didn’t belong in a place like this. 

She’d get ripped to shreds.

Most likely by me.

There’s nothing but sweetness dripping from her sexy little body, and I’m the monster who’s salivating to get a taste.

Trent Lawson is the last man I should want.

Dark.

Dangerous.

So wickedly gorgeous he makes my knees weak. 

He’s also an arrogant jerk who happens to be my new boss. 

When I discover his adorable son is also in my kindergarten class, I know I have to keep my distance. 

But neither of us can ignore the attraction that flames.

One glance, and our hearts race. 

One touch, and weโ€™re aching for what we canโ€™t have. 

One night, and weโ€™re falling fast.

Dragging her into my sordid world is wrong. 

It doesnโ€™t matter. 

Eden Murphy is mine.

New Release: The Spark by Vi Keeland

Title: The Spark
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 12, 2021
BLURB
Before I even met Donovan Decker, I knew his shoe size.

You see, Iโ€™d gone away for a few days, and in my haste to get out of the airport, Iโ€™d grabbed the wrong suitcase.
After checking out the expensive footwear and tailored clothes, I dialed the number on the luggage tag hoping maybe Mister Big Spender might have my bag.
A deep, velvety voice answered, and as luck would have it, he had my suitcase, too.
Donovan and I met at a coffee shop to do the exchange.
Turned out, it wasnโ€™t just his voice that was sexy. The man holding my luggage was absolutely gorgeous, and we had an immediate spark.
He got me to admit that Iโ€™d snooped in his bag and then convinced me to make it up to him by letting him buy me coffee.
Coffee led to dinner, dinner led to dessert, and dessert led to spending an entire weekend together. Donovan wasnโ€™t just handsome with a panty-dropping voice. He was also funny, smart, and surprisingly down to earth for a man who wore seven-hundred-dollar shoes.
Did I mention he also did my laundry while I slept?
Definitely too good to be true.
So what did I do to repay him for his kindness?
I waited until he was in the shower, then ghosted him.
My life was too complicated for such a great guy.
In the months that passed, I thought about Donovan often. But New York City had eight-million people, so what were the chances Iโ€™d run into him?
Then again, what were the chances Iโ€™d run into him a year laterโ€ฆwhen Iโ€™d just started dating his boss?

Excerpt Reveal: The Crush by Penelope Ward

Title: The Crush
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2021
BLURB

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone, second-chance story of forbidden loveโ€ฆ 

Itโ€™s natural to want the one you canโ€™t have. And for as long as I could remember, Iโ€™d secretly wanted my brotherโ€™s best friend, Jace. 
He was six years older and always treated me like the sister he never had. 
Fast forward a decade. 
We were all in our twenties now. Jace had moved in with my brother, Nathan, and me to help us make ends meet after our parents died. 
It was just the three of usโ€”an odd family dynamic. 
Living under our roof, Jace was as bossy and protective as ever. 
But he certainly didnโ€™t look at me like a sister anymore. That was what made things so complicated. 
I was pretty much hot and bothered twenty-four-seven. 
And he was torn. 
The signs were subtle, at first. Like on movie night, Iโ€™d casually rest my leg against his, and he wouldnโ€™t exactly shift away. 
Still, I assumed he would neverโ€ฆgo there. 
Nathan would kill us. 
The knowledge of that wasnโ€™t enough to stop the inevitable, though. 
Eventually our slow burn exploded. 
But more than the physical attraction, weโ€™d developed a strong connection. 
We just couldnโ€™t get caught, right? 
That sounded simple. 
Until it wasnโ€™t. 
This is a story of forbidden love, broken trust, and an unexpected second chance.

โ€œIโ€™m gonna grab a beer,โ€ he said. โ€œYou want something?โ€
โ€œIโ€™ll take a beer, too.โ€
He chuckled. โ€œIs it bad that I had to think for a second whether youโ€™re legal to drink? It feels wrong giving you alcohol, for some reason.โ€
โ€œYouโ€™ve dropped me off at the damn bar! How could you think that?โ€
โ€œI know. Itโ€™s fucked-up.โ€ He laughed as he walked backwards into the house. โ€œBe right back.โ€
A minute later, Jace returned with two chilled bottles of Miller Lite. He popped one open and handed it to me.
โ€œThanks.โ€ I took a long sip that felt great going down.
We polished off the rest of the food, and by the time I finished the beer, I felt pretty tipsy. Between the soft breeze blowing Jaceโ€™s scent my way and the buzz, I was on cloud nine.
Jace took it upon himself to clear our wrappers and napkins, stuffing everything into the paper bag. As he went back into the kitchen, he asked, โ€œWant another beer?โ€
โ€œIโ€™d love one.โ€
When he returned, he set the bottle in front of me and sat back down. He put his feet up on an empty chair and leaned his head back, closing his eyes.
He sighed. โ€œThis is exactly what I neededโ€ฆto chill at home.โ€
That made me happy. โ€œGive your head a break tonight. You can always worry about work tomorrow.โ€
โ€œYeah. I think Iโ€™m gonna take your advice on that.โ€
While his eyes were closed, I was able to enjoy staring at his profileโ€”his strong, angular jaw and slightly cleft chin, his perfect nose and kissable lips, the way the sun brought out a reddish tone in his otherwise black hair. Jace was even more beautiful with the sun shining on him.
I eventually closed my eyes as well, enjoying the breeze that offset a little of the heat. My eyes opened suddenly when I heard his chair skid against the cement.
โ€œFuck it.โ€ He got up. โ€œIโ€™ll be right back.โ€
My heart raced a little. What is he doing?
A few minutes later, Jace returned in his swim trunks. They were blue with tiny anchors, a nautical pattern. Not that I was looking closely at his lower half or anything. Iโ€™d just started to make my way up to his chest when he dove into the pool, his gorgeous, hard body disappearing under the sky blue water.
He emerged and shook his head to clear the water from his hair. โ€œYou cominโ€™ in or what?โ€
I got goose bumps. I hadnโ€™t planned to, but I couldnโ€™t resist the invitation.
โ€œSure.โ€ I got up from my seat and unwrapped the towel.
Jace watched as I entered the pool. But what was he thinking?
I dove in and swam toward him, feeling more comfortable in my bathing suit now that I was submerged in the water.
He flashed a mischievous grin. โ€œWanna race?โ€
I splashed him. โ€œWhy? You think you can beat me just cuz your legs are longer?โ€
He cocked a brow. โ€œThereโ€™s only one way to find out, right?โ€
Over the next several minutes, Jace and I swam in tandem from one end of the pool to the other. Sometimes heโ€™d beat me to the other side, and a few times, I beat him.
Eventually, we got into a water fight. The next thing I knew, he was chasing me, then lifting me up and tossing me in the water. He did that several times. It was the most fun Iโ€™d had in a long time. I hadnโ€™t a care in the world.
Then he lifted me up again, and I was certain he was going to toss me into the water, just like all of the other times. Instead, though, he just held me. Our eyes locked as my legs wrapped around his waist. He was going to have to drop me, because I sure as hell wasnโ€™t climbing off him willingly. As he continued to hold me, the world seemed to stop. I could see the reflection of the palm trees in his gorgeous eyes, made luminescent by the sun. Those eyes then dropped to my lips. I could see his chest rising and falling. He swallowed hard. Holy shit. Something was happening. My heart was going a mile a minute.
And thenโ€ฆ
โ€œWhat are you doing?โ€
Jace dropped me like a hot potato at the sound of Nathanโ€™s voice. My body hit the water with a loud splash.
What the hell is he doing here? My voice was shaky as I wiped the water from my eyes. โ€œWhaโ€ฆwhy are you home? I thought you were driving to meet that girl.โ€
โ€œShe canceled on me, so I came back after the job interview.โ€ Nathanโ€™s eyes traveled between Jace and me. He seemed suspicious.
โ€œOh.โ€ I exhaled, moving a strand of hair out of my mouth. โ€œHowโ€ฆhow did the interview go?โ€
โ€œIt was okay. Too hard to tell if theyโ€™re gonna call me back, though.โ€ He looked straight at Jace. โ€œYou guys seemed to be having fun. Didnโ€™t realize I was missing out on aโ€ฆpool party.โ€
Jace was silent.
I felt the need to chime in. โ€œJace decided to take his debut dip in the pool. We were just playing around.โ€
Nathan looked between us again. โ€œI see.โ€
Jace finally spoke. โ€œWell, itโ€™s hot as all hell today. Soโ€ฆโ€
โ€œYou guys down if I make some dinner?โ€ Nathan finally asked.
โ€œWe actually already ate,โ€ I told him. โ€œJace went to Checkers.โ€
Nathan turned to his friend. โ€œSince when do you eat dinner this early?โ€
Jace cleared his throat. โ€œI was starving.โ€
โ€œWe didnโ€™t think you were going to be home,โ€ I said. โ€œOtherwise, we wouldโ€™ve waited.โ€
โ€œI guess Iโ€™ll give you that.โ€
Jace got out of the water and dried himself off. He then laid out on one of the loungers, displaying his gorgeous, tanned body in all of its glistening glory. His feet dangled off the end of the chair.
Nathan snapped his fingers in front of my face. โ€œI asked if I got anything in the mail. Earth to Farrah.โ€
Jesus. I hadnโ€™t even heard him the first time.

What happens when you make a pact with your boys to stay single and never fall in love? 

 

Well, you get the Playboy Pact.

New Release: The Invitation by Vi Keeland

Title: The Invitation
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 18, 2021
BLURB
The first time I met Hudson Rothschild was at a wedding. Iโ€™d received an unexpected invitation to one of the swankiest venues in the city. 

Hudson was a groomsman and quite possibly the most gorgeous man Iโ€™d ever laid eyes on. He asked me to dance, and our chemistry was off the charts. 
I knew it wasnโ€™t a good idea to get involved with him, considering the wedding I was at. But our connection was intense, and I was having a great time. 
Though the fun came to a screeching halt when Hudson figured out I wasnโ€™t who Iโ€™d said I was. You see, that unexpected invitation I received? Well, it hadnโ€™t actually been addressed to meโ€”it was sent to my ex-roommate whoโ€™d bounced a check for two monthsโ€™ rent and moved out in the middle of the night. I figured she owed me an expensive night out, but I guess, technically, I was crashing the wedding. 
Once caught, I couldnโ€™t get out of there fast enough. As I bolted for the door, I mightโ€™ve plucked a few bottles of expensive champagne off the tables I passed, all while the gorgeous, angry groomsman was hot on my tail. 
Outside, I jumped into a taxi. My heart ricocheted against my ribs as we drove down the blockโ€”but at least Iโ€™d escaped unscathed. 
Or so I thought. 
Until I realized Iโ€™d left my cell phone behind at the table. 
Take one guess who found it? 
This is the crazy story of how Hudson Rothschild and I met. But trust me, itโ€™s only the tip of the iceberg.
