    Bridesmaid for Hire: A Valentine’s Day Romance

    by Chance Carter

    I swear I wasn’t looking for a man for Valentine’s Day.
    I sure as hell wasn’t looking for a groom of my own.
    You know the phrase, always a bridesmaid?
    Well, that’s me to a tee.
    In fact, I’ve made a career out of being a bridesmaid.
    And not just any bridesmaid. I’ll be your best friend through the entire wedding process.

    You need a BFF to throw your baby shower? Boom, I’m on it.
    You need a girl you can trust to arrange the stripper for your bachelorette? I’m all over it.
    You need a wedding planner, soul sister, loyal woman warrior who’s got your back, no matter what?
    The one bridesmaid who will never, ever let you down on your special day?
    I’m your girl.

    Do I ever get tired of being the bridesmaid?
    Do I ever wish it was me waltzing down the aisle, the man of my dreams waiting lovingly at the altar?

    Ehh, hell-to-the-no. Been there, done that, got the heartbreak.
    After the way I got burned, I’d rather die than go through that torture ever again.

    Until this one.
    The wedding that changed everything.
    A Valentine’s Day Wedding.
    And one brother of the groom who will not take his fierce, sexy eyes off me.

    The Valentine: The Wedding Pact #4

    by Denise Grover Swank

    Blair Hansen-Lowry never thought that marriage would be enough to ensure a happily ever after—her career as a divorce attorney made sure of that. But she never expected her old insecurities to resurface only a few short months after she and Garrett said “I do.” When Garrett receives an irresistible offer that could pull them apart, Blair becomes convinced it’s only a matter of time before Garrett realizes he’s made a terrible mistake.

    Garrett Lowry knew what he was getting into when he married a strong, stubborn woman with a tendency to keep people at arm’s length—even him. He’s fully committed to her nonetheless, and will do what it takes to build a life together. But the harder Garrett tries to prove himself, the more distant Blair seems to grow. When, in the midst of an argument, she issues a particularly deep-stinging barb, he begins to wonder if Blair might actually be happier without him.

I’ve sensed the same struggle within Julia, but we never talk about it, but now we have to. Finally, I have no choice but take the risk of coming clean. I don’t want to lose my best friend… but if we don’t try, we might miss out on the love of a lifetime.

    When you need someone more than breathing, and love is this consuming, no sacrifice is too great for the one person you can’t live without.

    The Future of Our Past is the first book in The Remembrance Trilogy, an epic, transcendent love story about the type of powerful and passionate connection we all dream of.

    For Lovers of Alien and Ménage Romantic Erotica, Werewolves & Shifters, and Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance, DREAMER AWAKENED is an exotic, novella-length adventure where reality really frickin’ sucks, but dreams just might come true…

    Forty human survivors of an alien massacre, over half of them pregnant, crash-land on an ‘uninhabited’ planet. By day, they’re just trying to stay warm. But when they fall asleep, they discover a race of sexy alien dreamwalkers.

    Quinn: A cosmically yummy doctor scarred by the death of his wife, laboring to keep two dozen pregnant women alive, and desperate for an escape.
    Marah: A passionate woman captured by aliens who will stop at nothing to help her people, and dearly wants to believe in magic.

    Here, the humans are the aliens, and the resident species must decide whether they want to share their planet—or erase the problem entirely. As the pesky—but strangely attractive—humans start to uncover long-buried secrets, they threaten to unearth the greatest Dreamer ever to live, locked away in an ancient prison for almost a millennium.

    In a strange land divided by caste wars… In a sensual alien culture where disputes are settled by challenge… In a bid for survival, because they really don’t want to die… Can Quinn and Marah join with alien shapeshifters as they defy upper management? Or will they be found in a snowbank come spring, consumed by spiders the size of houses, or drowned, crushed, and beaten by pleasure the likes of which neither of them could have ever dreamed?

    Crash into an alien world, where dreams are real. And wet dreams are really wet.
