<p><b>In a city as corrupt as it was luxurious, those who dared to dream were bound to pay the price.</b></p><p>Havana, Cuba, 1947. Young Patricio flees impoverished Spain and steps into the sultry island paradise of Havana with only the clothes on his back and half-baked dreams of a better life. Blessed with good looks and natural charm, he lands a job as a runner at El Encanto—one of the most luxurious department stores in the world.</p><p>Famous for its exquisite offerings from French haute couture to Arabian silks, El Encanto indulges the senses in opulent extravagance. It caters to visiting Hollywood stars, rising politicos, and prerevolutionary Cuba’s wealthiest power players, including the notorious mobster César Valdés.</p><p>Falling in love with the mobster’s young wife, Gloria, is suicide. But Patricio is irresistibly drawn to the beautiful girl with sad eyes, a razor-sharp intellect, and a penchant for both Christian Dior’s clothes and Einstein’s theories. Within the walls of El Encanto, anything seems possible, even a love that promises to heal them and a desire that thrums with the mambo beat of the city itself.</p><p>In a reckless love affair that spans half a century, Patricio’s and Gloria’s lives entwine time and again, challenged by every twist of fate—for in a world of murder, betrayal, and revolution, those who dare to reach for paradise seldom survive unscathed.</p>

Unfortunately, her father intends to marry her off to the first wealthy man who will have her in order to pay his gambling debts. When his plan takes a murderous turn, Tennessee finds herself alone and penniless on the streets.<br /><br />Best friends James Carr and Jonah Wells have watched, and wanted Tennessee for two years.

<b>Never kiss the devil. Not even if he’s sinfully gorgeous.

But that’s before I’m <i>taken</i> by the most fearsome, vicious, alpha Viking to sail the seas.<br /><br />Tor Odinson is a <i>beast</i> of a man. A savage. A bloodthirsty warrior and ravager. <i>Huge</i>, growly, dominant…and completely and utterly beautiful. I’m supposed to fear him, not <i>want</i> him. I’m supposed to resist him, not <i>crave</i> him.<br /><br />…Yeah, <i>whoops</i>.<br /><br />Because once he throws me over his shoulder, and lays his hands on me, and ties me to bed, and makes me feel things I’ve never even dreamed of, I know “what I’m <i>supposed</i> to do” is the last thing I’ll be doing when it comes to Tor.<br /><br />I know it’s wrong to desire a man like him. But if this is a sin, I’m already damned.<br /><br />I fell for the devil, and now, I want it <i>all</i>.<br /><br /><br /><i>Completely over the top, growly af, tropes for DAYS, and wildly historically inaccurate.

<p><em><strong>The only hope to keep her newborn baby alive is to reach the safety of her Indian people… This mountain man is the last person she should trust to get her there.</strong></em><br /></p><p>As a half-Indian raised among her Peigan tribe, Moriah Clark knows better than to trust white people. The tragedy that resulted in her birth is proof enough. But when her trusted grandfather marries her to a white man, she has no choice but to obey and hope this new life isn’t her downfall. Her white husband turns out to be a decent sort, but his unexpected death left her to birth a newborn baby among hostile mountain men. She wants nothing more than to retreat to the safe haven of her tribal upbringing. When a mysterious frontiersman arrives on her doorstep seeking her deceased husband, his offer to escort her and the babe to her people seems like the opportunity she’s been praying to find. But can she trust him?</p><p>Samuel Grant has been sent to retrieve Henry Clark for his sister’s wedding, but the sight that greets him at the little cabin in the woods is not what he expected. Not only has the man died, but Henry’s wife is fighting off an aggressive gang of men at gunpoint—while trying to conceal a newborn. He can’t leave the pair unattended, so helping her travel into the mountain country to reach her family seems like the only option. If he can win her trust, that is.</p><p>Such a grueling journey with a three-week-old baby will be risky, but the challenges that arise test them far more than either expected. When a devastating surprise increases the danger ten-fold, Moriah focuses all her efforts on keeping her newborn daughter alive. Maybe that’s why she doesn’t realize how much of her heart belongs to the mountain man—until it’s too late.</p>

<i>A brand-new <b>prequel novel</b> in Elisa Braden’s beloved Rescued from Ruin series, this is the romantic, sensual tale of how the first Huxley sister fell in love … and how the boy she loved became the man she couldn’t resist.</i><br /><br /><b>She’s not one for half measures</b><br />Lady Annabelle Huxley believes anything worth doing is worth doing boldly, and that includes adoring Robert Conrad. As a girl, she chased him with reckless abandon, and he always rescued her when she pushed too far … until the day rescuing her cost him everything—and lost her the boy she loved as no other.<br /><br /><b>He’s not the boy she remembers</b><br />The accident that shattered his body and his future left Robert Conrad fighting a battle only the hardest men win. After seven hellish years, even his tough soldier of a grandfather thinks he needs a wife to “civilize” him. But the season’s sole temptation is Annabelle, no longer a worshipful girl, now a siren with a womanly laugh, sarcastic mouth, and curves to make an uncivilized man sweat.<br /><br /><b>Love this powerful is not so easily broken</b><br />Her habit of chasing trouble hasn’t changed. Neither has his driving need to protect her. So, when a scandalous secret draws danger too close, he’ll wield his weapons ruthlessly—blackmail, betrothal, seduction—to keep her safe once more. And when his strength is all that stands between her and a perilous abyss, she’s reminded why loving Robert Conrad has always been the hardest habit to break.

Aliya prepares to travel with only one thought in the back of her mind: will she be able to persuade King Edward with her gifts and obtain his permission to continue to develop her business empire as a woman? She has to become an integral part of Edward’s kingdom, so much so that removing her would cause great damage to the rest of the structure. No guts, no glory.

A fight which will decide her destiny in a world she’s sacrificed so much for.<br />The royals and noblemen are far more sophisticated in matters of intrigue, gossip, and slander than anyone she has dealt with before. Lilian steps up to another level of negotiation and intricacy in her relationships: much deeper and more dangerous than in her native Earton Castle. Everyone in the capital of Ativerna has sharp teeth and are not afraid to use them to their own advantage… and they all have heard contradictory gossip about Lilian Earton.<br />New land, new friends, and new rivals mean new opportunities. She could push medicine and industry forward, could bring lots of inventions to this world, new guilds and so on… the only thing in her way now: King Edward. Meeting him might ruin everything or it could save and protect all. Still, he is not the only ruler who has his sights set on Lilian. The situation is nearing an international crisis. <br />She has to win the hearts and minds of the members of the Royal Family and of her own family.
