THE NOTE by Natalie Wrye


The Note by Natalie Wrye is HERE!! Don’t miss it. #OneClick today!!

BLURB   Whoever said "Revenge is sweet" is a liar.   There's nothing "sweet" about the vengeance I want against Sophia Somerset. Because when this quick-tongued waitress with more curves than the real estate market makes off with my most prized possession—and the only item saving my company from collapse, payback is the only goal I have planned…at first. My only saving grace?   The note she left behind. And my proof.   Problem is: I can’t stop thinking about the adorably haphazard thief.   Taking my revenge against Sophia may not be sweet. But it sure is sexy.   If only I can save my company—and my traitorous heart—before it’s too late…   PURCHASE LINKS AMAZON US: AMAZON UK: AMAZON AU: AMAZON CA:   EXCERPT   She closes her eyes for a second. “It was sudden. But that’s no excuse. I stole from you.” Her amber-green eyes gloss. “And I am sorry. Sorry about it all.” But I’m not interested in her excuses. Or apologies. What Sophia Somerset did to me three nights ago was just another reminder that people aren’t to be trusted. Not your friends, most of the time. Definitely not your family. (My own father had clearly shown that.) And certainly not strangers. On a desperate night, I forgot that. Forgot myself. I won’t again. “It’s fine.” I cluck out with a nod. “Then you can get it when they open up shop today, yes?” “I should be able to.” She pulls that delicate neck of hers pin straight, clearing her throat. “That was first. And secondly, I…” My brain goes into overdrive, my patience snapped. I’m sitting there, somehow letting Sophia control the conversation and whatever reticence was left in me, whatever restraint that kept the bear in my body on hold is let out of its cage—ready for destruction. I hold up my hand. “I have to be honest with you, Miss Somerset. I’m not interested in your ‘seconds.’” I allow my eyes to burn into hers, my words never stopping. “You’re a criminal, Little Bear,” I throw the days-old nickname at her. “And no amount of little apology, no amount of tiny retribution you think will be worth it can even the score of what you did to me. What you’ve allowed to be done…” I trail off, finally sinking the nail home, the temptation to touch her stronger than ever. I resist, sitting even straighter. I fold my hands over the table. “Now, you want to tell me what this condition is, so I can say ‘no’ to it?”   TEASERS ABOUT THE AUTHOR Natalie Wrye is a reader, writer and tequila lover best known for writing suspenseful big city romance and characters whose HEA's you'll love rooting for.

Heroes & Gods by Aly Zigada

Title: Heroes & Gods
Author: Aly Zigada
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 12, 2020


I was raised on fairy tales.
But no one warned me that a princess could fall for the villain of her story.
My heart beat for a hockey hero who was not mine. My soul burned for his rival—a god of infamy who shattered my morality and exploited my dirtiest desires.
Two athletes who made war on ice had the power to ravage my career, shred my reputation, and twist my reality. Yet I risked it all for the kind of love that's forbidden in tales and banished from myths.
My love was reckless and true.
My love was equal parts good and evil.
My love was promised to a hero...but stolen by a god.

Release Date: December 10, 2019


Professional bridesmaid, Cora Daniels, has one rule. Play the part, but never assume the role. Unfortunately, with less than twenty-four hours before her latest clients’ nuptials begin and the bridal party down by one, Cora has no choice but to step in.

Worse yet, she ends up paired with one of New York’s most wealthy and eligible bachelors.

Benjamin Mason’s reputation precedes him. He’s ruthless, cunning, driven, and exceedingly wealthy. Word has it that he’s also great in bed. So, it’s no surprise most women fall over their own feet for a shot at a night with him. But Ben’s tired of the meaningless hookups.

If only it weren’t so hard to find a woman to settle down with who wants him for more than just his money.

When Ben meets Cora, he thinks she’s precisely what he’s been searching for. But she’s not interested in being another notch on his bedpost. So, when Ben sees Cora in a compromising position, he steps in to play the part of her successful, handsome boyfriend.

But the lines begin to blur, leaving Cora wondering how much is real and if her heart is safe in his hands.
