“All The Ugly Things was an emotional, riveting ride that clutched my heart from the very first page.” – Marni Mann, USA Today Bestselling Author
All the Ugly Things, an all-new emotional, soul-gripping romance in the Love & Lies duet from Stacey Lynn is available now!
One moment. A single decision… an accident. Cost me six years of my life. All of my hopes and dreams vanished.
Until I was given back my freedom and the opportunity to start over… doing whatever I could to survive in a world much different than the one I knew before.
I was working on my degree and waiting tables when my fate changed. An older man with silver hair and a fancy suit walked in, looking like he wanted to save me. He came for pie. But he offered me a job.
When I turned him down, he sent his son, Hudson. The arrogant, sex on a stick wore me down. I took the job. I accepted his friendship. And slowly, over time, I began to feel things for this man I knew I shouldn’t.
They gave me a home. A family. And then it was all ripped away.

Focused on sports romance and emotional, small-town romance, she also loves stretching herself in different genres.
Born in Texas and raised in the Midwest, she now makes her home in North Carolina and loves all things Southern. Together with her ultimate tall, dark, and handsome hero, she has four children. Her life is a chaotic mess that fights with her Type-A, list-making, neurotically organized preferences and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Betraying the most powerful man in New York wasn’t something I ever envisioned when I first started playing games with Winston Constantine. But he’s engaged in far more dangerous games than ours, and his enemies are out for blood.
Winston has my heart, the Morellis have incriminating photos, and I’m left with nothing except three stepbrothers who want to hurt me and a future in doubt. I knew Winston wouldn’t be my prince charming, but that didn’t stop me from falling for him. After all, the slippers fit, and I let myself believe I’d be dancing with Winston forever. Until too much truth comes to light.
Until I realize instead of ruling the board, I was just a pawn.
In the end, I have only one question. When his game with me is over, will I be able to pretend as if the glass slipper wasn’t a perfect fit?
I love my bird. Shrimp is the best little birdie on the planet. But, the one single sound he makes isn’t a pleased one. It’s angry. Hurt. Scared. This, above anything else that’s happened tonight, is the most upsetting. I’ve let Winston down. And, I’ve let my damn bird down.
Stupidly, I got swept up in the little fairy tale I’d imagined where I was a maid turned princess who perfectly fit into her filthy prince’s story. Winston, billionaire CEO and world’s hottest bachelor, gave me a fantasy not a reality. He offered me a world made of glass. I stepped into those new shoes, blinded by the shininess, eager to be his little plaything.
But the cracking has begun.
At the first sign of trouble, everything feels as though it’s going to shatter at my feet.
No charming prince will be sweeping me in his arms this time.
I bite down on my lip to keep from crying. I’m tired of crying. Emotionally exhausted. Sick of it. Swallowing down the tight ache in my throat, I lock the apartment door and then swivel around to greet my bird.
“Shrimp,” I say in a raspy, wobbly voice as I toss my purse onto the love seat and kick off my heels. “Welcome home.” To the whore apartment.
He flaps his wings angrily from inside his cage. I’m unnerved wondering how he even got here. Winston obviously handled this during all the chaos that was dinner when he’d been texting someone.
It’s not just my bird.
Sitting on my bed is my bag of toiletries, my backpack, and a garment bag that most definitely doesn’t belong to me. I don’t have to unzip it to know it’ll be filled with outfits that were once hanging in my room at Winston’s place.
“Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry,” I chant, even as fresh, hot tears roll out.
I unlatch Shrimp’s cage door so he can get some space. Rather than hopping into my waiting hand, he flutters past me, swooping around the small area. He chirps in sharp, high-pitched noises that indicate he’s not pleased about his surroundings. The poor bird misses his chandelier playground, high ceilings, and huge windows.
“I fucked it up,” I explain to him with a wave of my hand. “I can’t even begin to imagine what the fallout for all of this will be.”

The one he can’t risk screwing up their relationship by sleeping with her.
Linc Kingston doesn’t accept anything less than perfection. Not in his billion-dollar business or in his personal life. He has it all. Except one thing. His personal assistant and best friend in his bed, moaning his name. No matter how much Linc wants her, she’s completely off-limits.
Jordan Greene grew up the daughter of the housekeeper at the Kingston estate, where she met and bonded with Linc at a young age, despite their economic differences. But no matter how close they are now or how much their attraction simmers beneath the surface, they’re still from two different worlds. Besides, Jordan isn’t about to risk losing her best friend for one sensual night.
Jordan might be the only woman who can handle Linc and his domineering, bossy attitude, but beneath that gruff exterior is a vulnerable man who, despite his wealth, has had a less-than-charmed life. And when Linc’s father dies, she’s there for him—unwavering in her friendship.
Until one night of passion and a positive pregnancy test changes everything.
Just One Night follows the story of Jordan and Linc. Jordan and Linc are the best of friends and always have each other’s back. But underneath that friendship is a fire just waiting to be explored……So, when Linc has to go out of town to take care of a family matter, he of course, brings Jordan along for the ride. Linc and Jordan are from two different worlds, yet somehow make it work. They get each other and would do anything for each other. Until one night when the lines between friendship and more get blurred. Will Linc and Jordan take a chance on love or will they be destined to remain friends? There’s only one way to find out….
Just One Night was a quick and easy read. I easily finished it in just a few short hours. I fell in love with Linc and Jordan right away. Their chemistry was off the charts and left me begging for more. I loved the ease of the two of them together. Their banter and the way they anticipated each others needs…GAH! I loved it. I lived for the will they/won’t they moments. Jordan is just what the doctor ordered for Linc. She can handle him and doesn’t let him get away with anything. I loved Linc’s kind heart, alpha attitude, and his ability to make up for the mistakes he makes.
Overall, I thought this book was a really enjoyable read and I look forward to checking out more in this series.

One night of pleasure, one night of sin, one night that changes everything.
For private investigator Elise Fanning, hacking into the ultra-exclusive sex club, Phoenix, is a piece of cake.

Jobless and forced home to Wisconsin, journalist Sabrina Monroe can tolerate reunions with frenemies and kisses from old boyfriends, but not the literal ghosts that greet her in this heartwarming tale of the power of love and connection from acclaimed author Amy E. Reichert.
For Sabrina Monroe, moving back home to the Wisconsin Dells–the self-described Waterpark Capital of the World–means returning to the Monroe family curse: the women in her family can see spirits who come to them for help with unfinished business. But Sabrina’s always redirected the needy spirits to her mom, who’s much better suited for the job. The one exception has always been Molly, a bubbly rom-com loving ghost, who stuck by Sabrina’s side all through her lonely childhood.
Her personal life starts looking up when Ray, the new local restaurateur, invites Sabrina to his supper club, where he flirts with her over his famous Brandy Old-Fashioneds. He’s charming and handsome, but Sabrina tells herself she doesn’t have time for romance–she needs to focus on finding a job. Except the longer she’s in the Dells, the harder it is to resist her feelings for Ray. Who can turn down a cute guy with a fondness for rescue dogs and an obsession with perfecting his fried cheese curds recipe?
When the Dells starts to feel like home for the first time and with Ray in her corner, Sabrina begins to realize that she can make a difference and help others wherever she is.
I fell in love with this author’s writing a few years ago when I read The Coincidence of Coconut Cake. So when I heard about The Kindred Spirits Supper Club, I just knew I had to get my hands on this book. And let me tell you, this book did not disappoint. It was fun, unique, and undeniably sweet.
The Kindred Spirits Supper Club follows the story of Sabrina and Ray. Sabrina’s life is anything but ordinary. You see, the woman in her family can see and talk to spirits. They’re tasked with helping those who have unfinished business. Sabrina has always seen her ability as a hindrance and wants nothing more than to be normal. The last thing Sabrina planned on was Ray. Sabrina knows she should focus on getting her life together, but staying away from Ray just isn’t an option….
Overall, I thought this book was a really cute read. This story was well written and paced just right. I thought the plot of the story was really unique and I really enjoyed all of the supernatural elements. The characters were genuine and easy to connect with. I thought the author did a really great job handling Sabrina’s past and her anxiety. I absolutely adored Ray. He accepted Sabrina for who she was and made Sabrina see herself in a more comfortable light. Ray had a genuine heart and I couldn’t wait to see how his and Sabrina’s story would play out.
The Kindred Spirits Supper Club is a fabulous read, from beginning to end. If you’re like me, you’re going to devour this book in just a single sitting and you’re going to love every single moment of it. This book was an absolute joy to read and I can’t wait to see what this author will have in store for us readers next!

She’s been the victim and the survivor…
Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers.

But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head.
A lover and heartmate…
But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other.
“No risk is too great, no is anything too sacred. Because she is my everything. There is nothing grater than her, and I do mean nothing.”
“The heart doesn’t care how long you may have been with someone.” “It just cares that you have the person for as long as you can.”
