Trick and Treat

Written by Cara Lockwood

Chapter Fourteen

Lizzie felt flustered and overwhelmed. Her head spun: she’d had one of the best climaxes of her life and then she’d seen that Maverick might not be as free and clear of his ex as she’d first thought. She’d only seen I need youpop up on the screen. It didn’t sound like an ex, exactly. Of course the man she broke all her rules for wasn’t single. That made perfect sense, and was just her luck. But why was she making a big deal of it? Halloween wasn’t for serious romance. It was for…quickies in the back seat of a Ryde car. So, why did she feel so disappointed?

She felt the sudden urge to flee. She needed to get away, get into the safety of Vance and Tanner’s party.

“Wait!” Maverick called behind her. “Wait!”

She hesitated on the sidewalk just long enough to see a pained look on Maverick’s face as his phone came to life in his hands. Tamara calling, no doubt. He answered the call, and that was all Lizzie needed. He’s not interested in you, Lizzie told herself. Get a move on. She turned away from Maverick and trotted up to Vance and Tanner’s front door, resisting the urge to turn around.

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?
