From New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE romance novel.
I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman. I’m especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh.
However, that’s exactly where I find myself.
What’s a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can. His gorgeous green eyes, rock-hard body, and cocky smile have no place in my world. My life is complicated enough.
Someone forgot to tell him that.
Eli is relentless. Pushing his way into my heart, wearing me down, proving he’s nothing like I assumed, and everything I need. But when my world shatters to pieces, he holds the broken bits together. Unwillingly, I fall desperately in love with him.
He made me think we’d have forever . . . I should’ve listened when he said we could only own tonight.

SUGAR, SEA SALT, AND SHOW BIZ
Jen Reid’s life after walking off a reality show has been great–she’s gone from being a broke twenty-four-year-old Seattleite with no love life and no job to the twenty-five-year-old who got the guy, moved to Miami, and is starting a bakery with her best friend. She thinks her showmance love might be about to propose. And with mouthwatering goodies based on everyone’s favorite shows, her business, Sweet Reality, is destined for success.
That is, until a killer competitor opens right across the street. If she’s going to save Sweet Reality, Jen has to come up with a secret ingredient–like the recipe that won Totally 80s Bake-Off. Jen can get it–if she steps back into the spotlight. Soon she and her boyfriend are out to sea on a cruise ship full of reality stars, including her nemesis, Ariana; her lying, cheating ex; and some wicked producers looking to bring the drama. Separate cabins, “surprises” from her past, and scenarios tailor-made to spark fights are just the beginning. But with her self-respect, her business, and her future on the line, the fallout from this made-for-TV plotline will be all too real . . .

It’s all supposed to be fake. Until it turns real.
Bella: My car broke down. Now I’m getting tattooed by the guy who saved me… and I’m sort of engaged to him. Don’t worry, it’s all fake. Well, it’s supposed to be…
Zayne: I’ve been staring at the wedding invitation for months. She sent it to me as one last jab to my heart. All I want is that one chance to get back at her. And that’s the moment I see the car on the side of the road… and a woman sitting on the hood… crying…

ST. SKIN NOVEL (IN ORDER OF PUBLICATION):
In Her Words
A Boy I Used to Love
Lost, Found, Loved
I’m seriously loving my new trilogy. The first book is done and waiting its release… the date will be announced soon. I’m in the heart of the second book and some of it is just so powerful I have to walk away. I’m digging deep here, everyone. I always leave myself in the books for you all to enjoy. That’s what keeps me so connected to them.
I’m going to be introducing you to my new friends… the characters in the series. Just wait until you meet AJ and Bryan. Their connection is so intense and trust me, it’s not some kind of romance thing either. I do believe in love at first sight but I’m not so sure it’s happening in this series. It’s more or less… something like… oh, look, someone is hurting as much as me. And they have a place for me to stay. And arms to wrap around me to keep me warm while I’m scared.
Does that make sense? lol

The youngest Harris brother’s story: Booker Harris
**Reads great as a standalone**
**Releasing September 7**
They were best friends until they became roommates.
Booker Harris has spent the last several years pushing himself to become the best goalkeeper in the Championship League. Tired of living in the shadows of his headline-splashing brothers, he has finally carved a path of his own.
As a child, Poppy McAdams was content in her own little make-believe world, until the boy next door with dimples and pained eyes came barreling into her makeshift fort demanding all her attention.
Best friends for most of their lives, everything changes when Poppy abruptly leaves London for University.
Now she is back, and gone is the awkward girl from Booker’s youth. She has been replaced by a stunning woman with secrets. Secrets that Booker is desperate to know.
Sharing a bedroom wall with your best friend from childhood quickly turns to anything but sweet and innocent.
I’m a big goof most days. I love making dumb videos and releasing a rap video with all my new releases. I think I should have tried my hand at improv theater but I decided to learn how life looks behind the lens of a camera first.
I make TV ads by day and write books by night. My family is my whole world. My husband, Kevin is the ultimate “nice guy” and my curly-haired daughter, Lorelei is the happily ever after we never thought we’d get. Lorelei is named after Gilmore Girls. If you don’t know what Gilmore Girls is, you have not yet lived.
We enjoy dance parties in our living room and jam-fests in the car with the windows down.
My contemporary romance novels are mostly based in London. My infatuation with all things British inspired my American Girls in London idea. Reading a book set overseas is another level of fantasy that I crave in a romance novel. What could be better than London Bloody England?
My writing style takes emotional and comical and makes them have a really cute batch of ugly-crying/snort-laughing octuplet babies. I want to make you cry. And I want to make you laugh. If I can do both in one chapter, I’ve accomplished my goal.
My inspiration for writing is and always will be my six precious angel babies and my daughter, Lorelei. They inspired my memoir, Chasing Hope and my passion for writing.
Everything I do…is for them.
Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances.
Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.
Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened.
For what she let happen.
With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when her and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed?
