Trick and Treat

Written by Cara Lockwood

Chapter Thirteen

His ex had rotten timing. I need you. Help! I’m in trouble.

With Tamara, that could mean anything from she’s out of cash at a bar to… something far more serious. Hunter knew she’d been running with a bad crowd lately. A bad crowd that included Vin Baker. He’d tried to warn her, but had she listened? No.

It’s Vin.

Of course it was.

He won’t let me leave. I’m scared.

That didn’t sound good.

“Who’s that?” she asked.

“It’s…my ex.” He let out a long sigh. His ex who was never interested in him unless she was drunk or in trouble. She cheated on you with your once-friend, he reminded himself. Yet he still didn’t like the idea of a girl in trouble. Any girl.

“Oh.” Material Girl sounded a bit uncertain as the Lincoln rolled to a stop.

“Here you are,” Paul said, glancing at the woman in the rearview. “This is your address, right?”

Hunter blinked and realized that Paul had pulled to the curb. The ride was over and Material Girl was getting out of the car. She was about to walk out of his life, and he didn’t even know her name. He could not let this happen.

The Lieutenant's Lost and Found Family

Written by Christy Jeffries

Lieutenant Nolan Murphy returns from overseas deployment expecting to find his home and canine companion just as he left them. Instead, an emergency storm evacuation has gotten his dog caught up in the chaos! Tracing the AWOL pup to Idaho, Nolan quickly falls for his new owners, little Harper Jordan…and her stepsister, Abby! Abby and Nolan struggle to come to terms with their “peternity” situation, and with the attraction that sparks between them. Harper’s shy personality blossoms as she urges Nolan to plan games for “their” dog, and even the puppy seems to be playing matchmaker! Will the once-lonely soldier find a new home—and his forever family—in Sugar Falls?

His Manhattan Midnight Cinderella

Written by Carol Marinelli

Shop assistant Felicia doesn’t let anyone get too close—her difficult upbringing has made sure of that. The closest she’s ever come to opening her heart was with billionaire Leander Carmichael. But even the rapturous pleasure she found in his arms couldn’t tempt wary Felicia to tell him the truth about her family.

Now, a year later, when Felicia sees Leander again at a glamorous ball, she realizes she’s been lying to herself. She didn’t just open her heart to Leander—she gave it to him. And what’s more, he still has it! As their irresistible chemistry reignites, can Felicia find the courage to tell this brooding billionaire everything…including how much she still loves him?
