Until a cunning killer—and the secret Lexie's been harboring for over a decade—puts everything at risk.

Written by Barbara J. Hancock

Released from hospital into the care of the man whose eyes have haunted her for a year, a troubled artist returns to Belle Aimée. The antebellum New Orleans mansion is the site of a tragedy Chloe's mind will not disclose. It's also home to an unseen presence that traces her steps, visits her studio and lingers near her bedroom.

Waking and sleeping, Chloe grasps at scraps of memory that flutter about her, alighting eventually on her countless canvases. Only under the stormy eyes—and electrifying touch—of Jonathan La Croix does Chloe begin to remember what they once were to each other. What they could be again. Such a man cannot be forgotten forever….

Written by Regan Black

While waiting on a blind date, Helen Rocco crosses paths with Alex Gadsden.

But Alex is determined to win over the woman he can’t forget.

If You Dare...

Written by Isabel Sharpe

She takes hers tall, dark—and extra hot!

Barista Megan Katowsky is unnerved to find Ethan Roberts standing at the counter in NYEspresso. The last time she'd seen the sexy professor—three years ago—she was minus a few essential clothing items. Worse he doesn't seem to recall their little, uh, awkward near-naked encounter…

But he looks interested in far more than ordering a steamy latte this morning!

Megan is cautious—she's from small-town Jersey after all. Should she let things percolate slowly with Ethan or go for something grande-sized…and risk it all?

Enjoy a short coffee break with If You Dare…which links to both SOME LIKE IT HOTTER and THE PERFECT INDULGENCE by Isabel Sharpe, where you'll meet the twin sisters who switch lives—and coffee shops!
