*Mature subject matter and not intended for those under the age of 17.
**Teaser** "Nothing lasts forever, Ryland."
"Then, damn it, let me be your nothing, Araya." (The Edge of Darkness)
**Teaser** "I never thought I needed anything in this life until I met you. Everything you give me is exactly what I have always needed, and you do it perfectly." (Falling)
**Teaser** “She’s spread out beneath me, hair fanned out beautifully on her pillow, and she reaches up to wrap her hands around my neck. Pulling me close to her, she kisses me. Our tongues stroke together as our bodies connect.” (Let Love In)
**Teaser** He pushed deeper, completely filling me then stilled. The only sound in the room was our breath coming faster and louder. Feeling overcome, I closed my eyes.
“Eli, here.” He said, breathlessly. “Don’t look away, don’t lose me.” (A Blue Tale)
**Teaser** “Do you want it hard or slow tonight?”
Moaning, I lifted my head and arched my back. “I want it hard, Brett, and I want it now.”
Pinning me to the bed with his weight, he leaned down and bit my bottom lip, making me gasp. “Then that’s exactly what you’ll get.” (Trusting You)
**Teaser** The clumsy lovemaking of my high school boyfriend did not prepare me mentally and physically to comprehend what it is to be worshipped intimately by a man.
"You should always be able to remember a kiss." (Better)
**Teaser** "He leaned forward and forcefully pushed his lips against mine, forcing my lips to part. He kissed me as if he wanted to devour me. Our tongues tangled as the alluring scent of him engulfed my senses. I felt helpless. I couldn't move, and my heart was racing. Suddenly, he broke our kiss and stared at me." (Love In Between)
**Teaser** I pull her close and move her so she’s sitting in front of me. She wraps her legs around my waist, playing into my fantasy. God, what I wouldn’t give to be buried deep inside her while we’re sitting on my bike. (My Unexpected Forever)
“If I have to choose, I’ll choose you. I can live wihtout them, but I can’t live without you." (Remembering Joy)
**Teaser** "Make me feel again, please."
"Are you sure?" I nod my head and soon our clothes are coming off. His chest connects with mine as he slowly enters me. I want more. I need more. (Next to Forever)
**Teaser** "He pushed me against the wall and kissed me-forcing my lips apart, trying to control my tongue with his." (Mid Life Love)
Melissa Andrea: I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I'll try.
Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn't be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter's will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado -but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don't have a big family, but I'm close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I'm very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5)

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it's been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn't start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn't long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa's brain and The Love Series was born.
Sarah Dosher was born and raised in rural Oklahoma where she currently resides with her cowboy husband and twins (one cowboy and one cowgirl).

USA Today Bestselling author, L.P. Dover, is a southern belle residing in North Carolina along with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she even began her literary journey she worked in Periodontics enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.

Aside from being a wife and mother, L.P. Dover has written over nine novels including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, and her standalone novel, Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read is romantic suspense and she also loves writing it. However, if she had to choose a setting to live in it would have to be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
Carey Heywood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with six books out and many more to come. She was born and raised in Alexandria, Virginia.
