A Duke but No Gentleman (Masters of Seduction, Book 1) by Alexandra Hawkins
In the last opulent days of the eighteenth century, a friendly wager turns into a heated feud that spans decades…and a love affair like none other.
What does it take to tempt a lady…
London, 1792. The Duke of Blackbern and the Marquess of Norgrave are boyhood friends who will still compete at anything. Racing, drinking, gambling, even seduction—until Lady Imogen Sunter crosses their path. Achingly beautiful, and innocent, she has no understanding of the jaded gentlemen who are courting her for favors—of how far they are willing to go to get what they want…
In this game of seduce and destroy?
Fighting for Imogen’s affection should have been no more than their usual spirited rivalry. But when Blackbern discovers his feelings for Imogen have deepened, all bets are off. Norgrave, driven by his own demons, won’t forsake his pride—and with one shocking act of betrayal that threatens Imogen and Blackbern’s newfound desire, Norgrave will set the course for a generation of Regency bad boys who will go down in history as the Masters of Seduction...

The Devil Wears Spurs (Texas Kings, Book 1) by Soraya Lane
Introducing the King brothers—three red-hot Texas billionaire cowboys who are wildly devoted to their family ranch…and the women who can tame them.
SHE KNOWS WHEN TO HOLD’EM.
As a newcomer to the great Lone State, Chloe thinks she’s immune to the charms of cowboys—until Ryder King comes along. A gorgeous rodeo star with a gambling problem should spell trouble for Chloe, who’s as quick-witted as she is stunning. But there’s something gentle in Ryder’s otherwise wild nature that gives her pause. And she can only fight her attraction for so long…
IS HE READY TO SHOW HIS HAND?
Texas born, bred, and proud, Ryder has always had a way with the ladies—though not so much with poker. He’s just bet, and lost, a third of his family’s ranch in a game. Can Chloe, the daughter of a card sharp who knows how to play to win, team up with Ryder in Vegas to help him win it back? The closer Ryder comes to getting back the ranch, the greater he risks losing his heart to Chloe. Is he ready to lay it all on the line for her? And can she trust that Ryder is for real—or is one of Texas’s most notorious playboys too good to be true?

Trust the Focus by Megan Erickson
With his college graduation gown expertly pitched into the trash, Justin Akron is ready for the road trip he planned with his best friend Landry— and ready for one last summer of escape from his mother’s controlling grip. Climbing into the Winnebago his father left him, they set out across America in search of the sites his father had captured through the lens of his Nikon.
As an aspiring photographer, Justin can think of no better way to honor his father’s memory than to scatter his father’s ashes at the sites he held sacred. And there’s no one he’d rather share the experience with more than Landry.
But Justin knows he can’t escape forever. Eventually he’ll have to return home and join his mother’s Senate campaign. Nor can he escape the truth of who he is, and fact that he’s in love with his out-and-proud travel companion.
Admitting what he wants could hurt his mother’s conservative political career. But with every click of his shutter and every sprinkle of ash, Justin can’t resist Landry’s pull. And when the truth comes into focus, neither is prepared for the secrets the other is hiding.
