6. Wife Me Bad Boy by Chance Carter: “Lacey thinks she wants a husband, she thinks she wants a nice man to settle down with. She has no idea. The guy she has in mind is all wrong. He doesn’t have the balls. He doesn’t even come close to being man enough for a girl like her.”

In A Shade of Blood, Bella Forrest transports you deeper into a unique, enthralling and beautifully sensitive story. Prepare to be lost in its pages…”
8. RIDE: The Complete Delancey Brother Trilogy by Joanna Blake: “I do whatever I want, when I want to. Chasing women doesn’t interest me. Not with the responsibility of running the famed Delancey Stables falling squarely on my shoulders. Until I meet her. Or rather, until she slams into me hollering about some tree that’s on the border between our property lines. Oh yeah, my new next door neighbor is hell on wheels.”
9. Ghost at Work by Carolyn Hart: “Bailey Ruth Raeburn has always been great at solving mysteries. Why should a little thing like her death change anything? In fact, being dead gives her more of an opportunity to be on top of events. Bailey Ruth is delighted that her unique position as a ghost makes it possible for her to lend a helping hand, sometimes seen and sometimes not.”
10. F*ck Love by Tarry Fisher: “Kit Isley is everything she’s not unstructured, untethered, and not even a little bit careful. It could all be so beautiful … if he wasn’t dating her best friend. Helena must defy her heart, do the right thing, and think of others.”
