Blackstone's Bride:  Moore, Kate

When the scandalous Lord Blackstone returns to London, fashionable ladies cast inviting glances his way and his friends celebrate his infamous exploits.

Only one woman remains unmoved by Blackstone's seductive ways. Banking heiress Violet Hammersley believes she has firm control over her passions and her life. That is, until her brother goes missing with a report vital to the British government - and the government puts Blackstone on the case. Now, if Violet wants to find her brother, she must work closely with the man who once broke her heart - without succumbing to the powerful impulse to fall for him again.

That Thing Called Love:  Susan Andersen

For a guy she's fantasized about throttling, Jake Bradshaw sure is easy on the eyes. In fact, he seriously tempts inn manager Jenny Salazar to put her hands to better use. Except this is the guy who left Razor Bay - and his young son, Austin, whom Jenny adores like her own - to become a globe-trotting photojournalist. He can't just waltz back and claim Austin now. Jake was little more than a kid himself when he became a dad. Sure, he'd dreamed of escaping the resort town, but he'd also truly believed that Austin was better off with his grandparents. Now he wants - no, needs - to make up for his mistake. He intends to stay in Razor Bay only until he can convince Austin to return with him to New York. Trouble is, with sexy, protective, utterly irresistible Jenny in his life, and his bed, he may never want to leave.

Lone Wolf:  Shelley Munro 

R.J. Blake begins a new session tutoring young werewolves in the old ways - before the introduction of the shift-suppressing drugs that allow their kind to live secretly among humans. He expects nothing out of the ordinary. Until sexy, smart, aggravating-as-hell Corey Wilson arrives. Older than the others, son of a powerful Los Angeles pack leader, Corey is an instant temptation he cannot afford. The last thing Corey wants is three months stuck in the Yellowstone wilderness, followed by the stifling life his father has all mapped out for him. One glimpse of R.J., though, sparks a determination to seduce the older man before he leaves. Yet as R.J. guides him through the sometimes terrifying process of rediscovering his heritage, a deepening respect calls to his artistic soul and fuels a burst of creativity.

Three Way: Erotic Adventures:  Alison Tyler and Shanna Germain 

In Three-Way, 21 of the very best erotica writers offer steamy and surprising variations on the ménage à trois, erotica readers' most often named favorite sexual fantasy. Editor Alison Tyler has gathered a thrilling variety of scenarios that are playful, sensuous, and dangerously explicit. Stories include "The Scarless" by Marcelle Perks, an edgy story about an X-rated movie shoot starring multiple men and a lone woman, and "Third Party" by Dawn M. Pares, where a couple pick up a third at a bar, as they do every so often, only this time their new friend is not quite what he seems. Three is definitely a charm in this adventurous anthology that begins with Tyler's own true confession of her own first three way at a naughty nineteen years old. In her own words, "Three means more of everything. Maybe I am greedy but, when it comes to sex, I like more of everything. More fingers. More tongues. More limbs. More tangling and wrestling on the mattress."

Sure, you may have sent his new girlfriend a bunch of dead roses, but did you spend a grand on psychic hot-lines and a voodoo curse?
