A Night of No Return

A Rogue By Any Other Name
by Sarah MacLean Details
A decade ago, the Marquess of Bourne was cast from society with nothing but his title. Now a partner in London's most exclusive gaming hall, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever it takes to regain his inheritance--including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury. A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to an unexplored world of pleasures. Bourne may be a prince of London's illicit underworld, but he vows to keep Penelope untouched by its wickedness, a challenge indeed as the lady discovers her own desires and her willingness to wager anything for them...even her heart.

The Way Back Home
by Barbara Freethy Details
Ex-Marine Gabe Ryder has lost a lot in his life. His mother died when he was a toddler. His father succumbed to alcoholism. And a week before their last day of service, a horrific firefight took the life of his best friend and brother-in-arms, Rob Hayden. Now Gabe must fulfill his friend's dying wish by helping Rob's twin sister, Alicia. Alicia has been reeling since her brother's death. She's lost a part of herself that she isn't sure she can get back. On top of that, her 8-year-old son is longing for a father, who she thinks she's found in her boyfriend Keith. When Gabe arrives--moving into Rob's California house, helping with the family's river rafting business, and looking into her love life--Alicia is resentful. But when Alicia's son and his best friend run away, Alicia and Gabe realize they must face their deepest fears and work together to bring them back, before the river rises.
