But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw… Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she's so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right? Brokedown Cowboy Since losing his wife Connor Garrett has concentrated exclusively on his family's ranch.

Now here he is, giving flirting tips to the one woman who needs zero help turning him on. Love's a game he's never wanted to play. But he'll have to hurry up and learn how before the best thing that ever entered his life rides right back out again…

A master of driving pace, exotic setting, and complex plotting, Harold Lamb was one of Robert E. Howard's favorite writers. Here at last is every pulse-pounding, action-packed story of Lamb's greatest hero, Khlit the Cossack, the “wolf of the steppes.” Journey with the unsung grandfather of sword and sorcery in search of ancient tombs, gleaming treasure, and thrilling landscapes. Match wits with deadly swordsmen, scheming priests, and evil cults. Rescue lovely damsels, ride with bold comrades, and hazard everything on your brains, skill, and a little luck. This four-volume set collects for the first time the complete Cossack stories of Harold Lamb: every adventure of Khlit the Cossack and those of his friends, allies, and fellow Cossacks, many of which have never appeared between book covers. Compiled and edited by the Harold Lamb scholar Howard Andrew Jones, each volume features essays Lamb wrote about his stories, an informative introduction by a popular author, and a wealth of rare, exciting swashbuckling fiction. In the concluding volume, gallop into adventure with Khlit and Kirdy for their final challenge in The Wolf Master, out of print since 1933. Then, delve into a treasure trove of stories gleaned from rare magazines: an account of a desperate mission for Khlit’s old friend Ayub; three tales of the valorous Koum and the champion swordsman Gurka; two daring ventures by Stenka Razin, the Robin Hood of the steppes; five short stories of Uncle Yarak, a Cossack fighting in World War II; and more than a half dozen other swashbuckling tales from the steppes.

Three prolific authors bring truth to the title of this heart-wrenching book, Love Is Never Painless, with a collection of novellas that explores the deeper side of love -- the side rarely explored in love stories. In Eileen M. Johnson's "How the Other Half Lives," longtime friends Jamellah and Fernecia are having trouble with the men in their lives. And as their worlds seem to crumble, they must count on their friendship to keep it together. In "Love Is 2 Blame," by V. Anthony Rivers, Malcolm is devastated after his two-year relationship with Shaylisa ends. And trying to move on will not be easy -- but the lovely Zahara may be the perfect woman to show Malcolm what true love is all about. In Zane's "Staring Evil in the Face," Robier has everything: a successful career, beautiful children, and the woman of his dreams. Having loved Tiphanie since college, he is determined to keep his marital vows -- until Tiphanie is involved in a horrible car accident that changes the entire course of their lives. From nervous breakdowns to drug addiction, in Love Is Never Painless, Zane, Johnson, and Rivers have penned powerful stories that not only will have readers talking, but will bring a new perspective to their own relationships.

The three novellas presented here -- The Ditress'd Orphan, The City Jilt,and The Double Marriage-- were published separately in 1726, but were originally intended for a single volume. Haywood was a dangerous entity in the eighteenth century: a writing woman, writing for women. Like many female authors before her, Haywood was labeled and condemned by men as unfeminine, licentious, immodest and usurping. She dared to wield that masculine instrument, the pen, and speak her mind in public like a man.

Three young, wealthy titled women decide to spend the social Season admiring the bucolic splendor of the Yorkshire Dales rather than dodging fortune hunters and scandalmongers in London. A fine plan–until the ladies’ traveling coach lands in a muddy ditch, and foul weather strands them at the estate of former officer Nathanial Stratton. As luck (or Cupid?) would have it, Nathaniel and his two friends, Kit Stirling and Greyville Trent, also have no patience with matchmaking and romance…. or so they insist.

From the author of The Earl of Hearts, three Classic Regency Romance novellas celebrating the witty and romantic world made popular by Georgette Heyer. The Viscount’s Valentine Notorious rogue Viscount Blackthorne has fled London and escaped to the wilds of Yorkshire to avoid scandal. What he never expected to find there was the widow Honey Hockley, the one woman who captured his heart twelve years earlier. Upon meeting, attraction flares and tensions mount as the two confront their old feelings and fears and discover that it’s never too late for love. “Original. I liked the story . . . Worth it.” —Goodreads A Rogue’s Rescue A delightful story in which the con gets conned when the plain and aging spinster Miss Ariadne Lambert turns the tables on the unscrupulous “Dapper” Dorsey, who’s out to steal her fortune. With the help of Viscount Ingram, Ariadne creates a devilish scheme to bring about the final undoing of Dorsey—and in the process discovers that Ingram has stolen her heart. “Although this is clean (just kisses), the air between them fairly sizzles. A Rogue’s Rescue is an excellent example of storytelling that is succinct without sacrificing plot or character and one I don’t hesitate to recommend.” —Goodreads A Scandalous Plan Headstrong Lady Theresa was never good at sitting around and doing nothing, so it’s no surprise when she takes it upon herself to call on the widowed Mr. Martindale to see for herself if the strange rumors about his family are true. As she works her way into the lives and hearts of Martindale and his two young children, she realizes too late that her plans to help could backfire horribly—both for the family and for her own chance at love. “Perfection. This love story is everything you could want in a traditional Regency romance between a merchant gentleman and an earl’s managing spinster daughter set in the country.” —Goodreads
