Amazon Self-Published Bestsellers for the Week of August 12, 2015

1. Luke: A West Bend Saints Romance by Sabrina Paige: “There are three things in life I’m damn good at: f**king, jumping out of planes, and chasing forest fires. Settle down? With someone like Autumn Mayburn? Forget it. She’s uptight, smart-mouthed, and hell, she has a kid. She’s ten years older than me.”

2. Arrogant Bastard by Winter Renshaw: “The last time my father beat me to a bloody pulp was the night he walked in on me banging my step-mother in his bed. To be fair, she seduced me. And to be honest, I liked it. But to CPS, I was a victim.”

3. Three Simple Rules by Nikki Sloane: “In order to save my skin at the office, I’m forced to sell it at an exclusive and illegal blindfold club. He paid thousands of dollars for one night to own me, but when my blindfold comes off, I want more. More nights, more rules, and more from this unavailable and uncompromising man.”

4.Yours by Aubrey Dark: “t was supposed to be fun. A spring break trip to Tijuana with my friends. A margarita in each hand while we danced the night away. Then I saw him in the club. He was too perfect to be true—an impeccably tailored suit, a sculpted body. Ice-blue eyes that seared with desire. I thought everything about him was right. But I was dead wrong.”

5. Souls Unfractured by Tillie Cole: “Labeled a ‘Cursed’ woman of Eve from birth, Maddie has endured nothing but pain and repression at the hands of The Order’s most abusive elder, Moses. Now living with her sister in The Hangmen’s secluded compound, finally, Maddie, is free. Free from the suffocating faith she no longer believes in.”

6. Harte Series Boxed Set by Brooke Harris: “Arrogant, Irish billionaire Julian Harte is used to getting what he wants. He wants Evangeline Andrews.”

7. Gray Back Bad Bear by T.S. Joyce: “Matt Barns is on a mission. The goal of this mission? Find a mate before his broken bear drives him into madness. He knows exactly what he’s looking for, but when his bear finally settles for a mate, she dumps his world upside down. She’s funny, sure, but other than that, she’s not his type in any way.”

8. Big Bad Bear by Terry Bolryder: “His name is Zeus, and for years he brought the thunder as an elite special forces squad leader and undercover bear shifter. Now that he’s out of the service and living quietly in the woods above a remote mountain town, he has just one mission left.”

9. Indulge by Georgia Cates: “Beau Emerson is no gentleman. Those hazel eyes. That filthy mouth. That greedy, hard body. It all equates to one thing. Irresistible.”

10. Fourth Debt by Pepper Winters: “Nila Weaver fell in love. She gifted her entire soul to a man she believed was worthy. And in the process, she destroyed herself. Three debts paid, the fourth only days away. The Debt Inheritance has almost claimed another victim.”
