Made to Last (Where Love Begins Book #1)

Miranda Woodruff has it all. At least, that’s how it looks when she’s starring in her homebuilding television show, From the Ground Up. So when her network begins to talk about making cuts, she’ll do anything to boost ratings and save her show–even if it means pretending to be married to a man who’s definitely not the fiance who ran out on her three years ago.

When a handsome reporter starts shadowing Miranda’s every move, all his digging into her personal life brings him a little too close to the truth–and to her. Can the girl whose entire identity is wrapped up in her on-screen persona finally find the nerve to set the record straight? And if she does, will the life she’s built come crashing down just as she’s found a love to last?

Speak Easy

The 1920s are roaring, and twenty-year-old Tiny O’Mara wants to be a part of it all. By day she works for her father’s smalltime bootlegging operation, and by night she craves the sexy roll-your-stockings-down lifestyle of a flapper–until her father is kidnapped by a mobster in Detroit’s exploding organized crime scene, and it’s Tiny who has to come up with the ten thousand dollar ransom…in one week.

Suddenly she’s thrust into an intoxicating underworld of greed, lust, lies, and betrayal.

Enzo DiFiore is the son of the mobster holding her father hostage, but his sexy screen idol looks and dangerous charm leave her breathless. When the forbidden spark between them refuses to burn out, she tried to use their powerful chemistry to buy more time. Irritatingly handsome childhood pal Joey Lupo has the street smarts she needs to make a quick ten grand, but he’s got his own agenda where gang rivalries are concerned. And deciding whom to trust isn’t easy in a world where everyone wants something–be it booze, money, power, or sex–and no one cares what it takes to get it.

Say When (Something More)

By Tara West / Genre: Coming of Age / Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars (42 reviews)

Say When (Something More)

He told me to say when, but I can’t. Not with Andrés. It’s so hard to say anything when he’s trailing feather soft kisses down my neck, or when his touch sends hot currents of lust rippling across my skin.

Then there’s the way he smiles and offers soft words of encouragement when I’m creating art, almost like he believes I have talent.

He’s not like any guy I’ve ever met. Not like my ex-fiancé. Not like my father. He’s got me thinking that maybe we can have something more. More than just lust, degradation, and abuse.

And now I’m scared, because that means I’ll have to trust him with more than just my body, but with my heart, too.

There is a time when history begins; a time when those who live feel the need to write their story, for those who come after them to read. When recollection of events of importance cannot be left to one’s offspring alone, but must be shared with all.

This is that world; this is truly their beginning. What they thought was knowledge, was only a foundation. They will delve into a depth theyhave never known, discover things they never thought imaginable, and struggle to uphold the truth rather than be consumed by it. With magic in its infancy, and a world in turmoil, an endless chain of possibilities lie dormant. Rousing them has the potential for paragon or chaos, and only time will tell.
