Rook is homeless, jobless, and down to her last ten dollars when she stumbles into a once in a lifetime opportunity–a chance to model for the internationally famous photographer, Antoine Chaput, in a campaign called TRAGIC.

After years of struggling and abuse, Rook is wary of making new friends and she keeps her past life close. But sexy and seductive supermodel, Ronin, latches onto her heart and never lets go. Soon she’s drawn into a world of beautiful people, deep dark secrets, and more exposure than she can handle.

She’s on a wild ride–life is exciting, sex is selling, and the money is flowing. But there might be more to this world than she ever imagined. There might be more to these people than she ever imagined. Because no one, and nothing, is exactly what it seems.

Marked (Eternal Guardians Series #1) by Elisabeth NaughtonMarked by Elisabeth Naughton. $ Free | .99

From the Jacket Copy:

THERON – Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He’s the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld.

From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn’t exist in real life—silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something. Her.

She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron’s duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn’t strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes, to tear himself away from the heat of her body.

As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

It was free before – back in 2012. A few of the reviews suggest the hero uses his power to control sex and finds his “soul mate” in a waitress who is somewhat resistant to his mind control ways.

Whitman University Boxed Set by Lyla PayneWhitman University Boxed Set by Lyla Payne. $ .99

From the Jacket Copy:

Now you can own all FOUR Whitman University books for one low price! The boxed set includes the USAToday Bestselling BROKEN AT LOVE, sexy Scot Cole in BY REFERRAL ONLY, the broken and hurting Kennedy in BE MY DOWNFALL, and the worldwide romp alongside tennis pro Sam in STAYING ON TOP.

Join your favorite rich kids as they navigate the murky waters of living up to their families expectations, falling in love, finding themselves, and have a little (too much) fun along the way.

When a knee injury ends twenty-year-old Quinn Rowland’s pro tennis career, he’s not only dumped by his hot Russian girlfriend but ordered to attend college by his disinterested billionaire father. A rich kid who’s not used to being disappointed by life, Quinn and his sociopathic half-brother Sebastian create a frat house game intended to treat girls how they see them—as simple game pieces to be manipulated for their pleasure.

College sophomore Emilie Swanson knows Quinn’s reputation—after all, he did send one of her sorority sisters into therapy earlier in the semester—but the game and his charm bring them closer together and soon she starts to believe there’s more to Quinn than people think.

But what if the more is something darker than a game of toying with emotions and breaking hearts?

Quinn and Emilie might be falling for each other, but there are secrets he’s not ready to tell—and lifestyle changes he’s reluctant to make. She willingly stepped on the court, but if Emilie finds out she started out as nothing as a pawn in Quinn and Sebastian’s twisted game, she might never forgive him.

To his surprise, Quinn finds that he might finally care about someone more than he cares about himself…even if that means letting Emilie walk away for good.

The one author collections are my favorite kinds of box sets.

The Agreement by S.E. Lund

Kate McDermott is a Journalism graduate student writing an article about BDSM in popular culture. It’s just research & nothing personal. Really.

Drake Morgan, MD, is a Neurosurgeon, bass player, philanthropist & Dominant. He doesn’t do girlfriends, sleepovers, & he certainly doesn’t do breakfast in bed the morning after. Ever.

When the two meet for an interview, Kate hopes the carefully worded agreement she draws up will keep their relationship strictly professional. Big mistake…

Belong to You by Vi Keeland

My honeymoon was almost everything I dreamed it would be, a tropical paradise, turquoise water, romantic walks on the beach, and loads and loads of mind shattering sex. The only thing missing was the groom.

After seven years of coasting through a relationship with Michael, my senses were numb. A week of passion with a stranger was just what I needed to clear my head and take back control of my life. But how do you move on when the man that was only supposed to be a fling somehow seeps into your soul and steals your heart?

Gemini by Penelope Ward

Allison didn’t know her life was about to change the day she serves a mysterious blue-eyed customer. Cedric wasn’t expecting love at first sight with the pretty waitress he’d set out to find. She was the last woman for whom he should have been having feelings. Compelled to know her before identifying himself, he makes her believe their meetings are coincidental.

After a passionate romance, Cedric’s secrets are revealed in a shocking twist you won’t see coming.

Wreck Me by J.L. Mac

A self-described “nobody with nothing,” orphan Josephine Geroux is happy to remain invisible until she meets a strangely familiar man whose face haunts her for reasons she can’t understand,

Making it her mission to discover what parts of her tragic puzzle she is missing, Josephine becomes entangled with the enigmatic stranger & has unknowingly given herself to the one person who is close enough to wreck her.

Searching for Moore by Julie Richman

Sexy entrepreneur Schooner Moore receives the birthday bombshell of a lifetime – his true love, college girlfriend Mia Silver, the girl who broke his heart when she fled without even a goodbye at the end of their freshman year, has been seen on Facebook.

Now 24 years later, Schooner discovers the truth behind what drove Mia from him as he tries to once again win her love.

The Future of Our Past by Kahlen Aymes

Julia Abbot and Ryan Matthews have been inseparable best friends since the moment they met. Unwilling to risk their incredible friendship, they each unsuccessfully attempt to quell their immeasurable longing for the other.

On the verge of Ryan’s departure to Harvard Medical School and Julia’s for her new job on the opposite coast, they are forced to face the undeniable truth of their deeper feelings.

Is their love strong enough to stand the test of a long distance relationship & the people that try to keep them apart?

I’ve actually bought (but not read) a couple of these full length novels. The Penelope Ward was in the top 100 of Kindle for a while and I paid $2.99 so this is a pretty good deal.

    I read and enjoyed the Eternal Guardian series by Elizabeth Naughton. It’s based on Greek Mythology, which I found interesting. Lots of action, twisty plot lines and sexual tension. The first book wasn’t my fav, the series gets stronger as it goes along. In fact Orpheus’ story (several books in) was my fav. I was on pins and needles when he went to the underworld to rescue his brother! This is definitely a series to take a chance on.

    @Michele Mills: Me again. Just wanted to add – I liked Orpheus’ book so much, while reading it, I thought it had a touch of that paranormal Kresley Cole magic. (My highest compliment). :)

    Cynthia Wright’s historical Silver Storm (The Raveneau Novels Book 1) is also free at and gets an average rating of four stars. Apparently the hero is a French pirate during the American Revolutionary War, and there’s a review/ blurb from SEP which indicates this may be a reissue of an old series.

    Can I skip straight to Orpheus?

    @Jane: Good question! I really think you can. The author introduces a heroine new to the series in this book and each book usually has a good summary of what happened before. If you’re interested it’s Enraptured #4.
