New Releases (week of Nov. 19th) JAXSON'S ANGEL

Jaxson's Angel by Serena Pettus
Only 99 cents
Jaxson Sterling loves his life. He has a booming charter boat business that he runs with his twin brother, who also happens to be a very popular romance writer. Add to that a spacious home right on the beach, and it just didn’t seem like things could get much better.

 When his brother invites his agent down to stay in their rental house, Jaxson is hopeful that this will snap his brother out of his current writing funk, but imagine his surprise when the agent ends up being a very attractive woman. And not just any woman, but his destined mate.
Angel is ready to relax and work on a plan for her future since she has just left her job at the literary agency. A beach vacation sounds perfect, and she is excited to visit with one of her favorite clients in the process, but instead of the serious writer she is used to, Angel encounters a much more playful and flirtatious man.

 Much to her surprise, Jaxson is his twin, and a very sweet distraction from her current worries. They spend a lot of time together, seeing the sites, dining, walking the sugar-white beaches . . . but Jaxson has a secret that could bring their budding relationship to a dead halt.

 He’s a werewolf.

 Jaxson claims that his brother’s writings are true, and that he can offer her the type of everlasting love that has been described in the bestsellers she represents
It all sounds wonderful, but can she accept his furry tendencies and bind her soul to him for all time?

Last week, we had 3 new releases: Dark One's Mistress, Molly's Folly, and Podium Finish.

Dark One's Mistress by Aldrea Alien
For centuries, the people have lived under the protection of their so-called Dark Lord. Now, with news of his death reaching the quiet village of Everdark, rumour whispers that his son, Lucias, is hunting for a mistress to beget him an heir.

Clara doesn't put much stock in village gossip, until she finds herself forcibly taken to the Lord's fortress. Escape is not easy. She has no way out and, against a man with magic, little chance of fighting back. But the Lords are still men and the death of Lucias' father is proof that they die just the same. And yet, if Lucias dies heirless, his army will be free to terrorise the land.

Such is the goal of Lenora of Ne'ermore, an old enemy and ex-prisoner of the kingdom. She is sending a man to slaughter Lucias and, to ensure there's no chance of an heir, his mistress must die as well.

Caught between regaining her freedom or losing it for the good of the kingdom, Clara struggles to decide her path before certain death breaches the gates.

Contemporary Romance
Molly's Folly by Denise Gwen
A high-powered Washington insider, Molly Brandenburg has been sent back to Bellefleur, a sleepy river-town on the banks of the Ohio, to set up a headquarters for her senator boss.  But when she runs back into the guy who took her to the senior prom, Michael Carson, her one true love, she begins to wonder if perhaps she didn’t make a mistake when she kicked the dust of Bellefleur off her heels sixteen years earlier?

Because, on the fateful night when Mike told her he loved her, something happened be-tween them that would change their lives forever after.
Olympic Games
Podium Finish by Beth Pond
With six months until the Olympic Games, seventeen-year-old Harper's life is pretty much per-fect. She's fighting for the starting spot on Team USA Women's Hockey, and for the first time ever, she has a crush on a guy who likes her back. She feels like the luckiest girl in the world, until she runs a risky play at practice and breaks her knee, thereby sentencing herself to six weeks in a cast and possibly ending her Olympic dream before it even starts.

For seventeen-year-old Alex, being anything less than the best is unacceptable. That's why, after a miserable debut season at the senior level, the former junior national singles champion switches to ice dance. Her skating partner, Ace, is an "all skating all the time" type of guy, which would be fine, if he'd stop keeping secrets about the real reason he and his former partner broke up. Now is not the time for second thoughts, but how can Alex skate her best if she can’t trust her partner…or herself?

As the pressure to make the Olympic team builds, the girls must rely on each other, because if there’s one thing they both know, it's that the only thing harder than skating to the top is staying there.

Fighting for the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux
Two friends. Two dreams. One night that changes everything…

Ice dancer Aubrey London scoffs at romance. She’s focused on winning a medal at the upcoming Olympics and uses that as her excuse to avoid serious relationships. But when she and longtime friend Chris Grayden are thrown together by unforeseen circumstances, Aubrey finds herself questioning everything she’s ever known about love, complicating her life both on and off the ice.
Pairs skater Emily Petrov embraces romance. She and her husband Sergei still act like honeymooners two years after their wedding. As Emily’s coach, Sergei provides constant support while she prepares to challenge for gold at the Olympics. But Sergei’s support might not be enough to help Emily overcome the one challenge she never saw coming.

With the Games only weeks away, Emily and Aubrey are on the verge of realizing their dreams. But one snowy, stormy night sets in motion a series of events that will test them in ways they never imagined, giving them more to fight for than Olympic medals.
