365 days, 7 fights, 4 Kos, 3 decisions, 2 scandals, 1 missing ear, 1 wild yearChris Jones did not know what he was getting himself into. He looked for a sport to call his own when he was hired as a rookie reporter. He found boxing. Over the course of the year that followed, the dark trade would creep deeply inside him, set his heart pumping one minute and break it the next. Make him stare at violence and dare him not to flinch. In Falling Hard, Jones proves himself to the latest in a line of lyricists to be drawn into boxing's storied corruption plagued world. He gets dressed down by Don King, meets the troubled guy who found Evander Holyfield's ear, goes to Muhammed Ali's birthday party, and witnesses Naseem Hamed explode while Mike Tyson implodes. Falling Hard is in equal measure victory and defeat - an intoxicating mix that leaves Jones addicted to boxing's special brand of pain. Humorous, infuriating and suspenseful, this is boxing distilled to its essence by sports writing's brightest star.

In bestselling author Tina Wainscott’s gritty, emotional small-town romance—perfect for fans of Jasinda Wilder and Colleen Hoover—passions run high as a reformed bad boy reconnects with an old enemy . . . and gets her engine revving. There’s no one Pax Sullivan wants to run into less than Gemma Thornton. Back in high school, she revved his heart more than street racing. But she picked his clean-cut brother over him—only to accuse Blake of an unforgivable crime. Eventually the charges were dropped and Gemma left town, but the hard feelings lingered . . . along with Pax’s gnawing “what-ifs.” Seven years later, just as he quits the police force to open a racetrack, Gemma’s back—and their chemistry is more combustible than ever. If it were up to her, Gemma would never lay eyes on another Sullivan. She hates them, and they hate her—even Pax, who just so happens to be fixing up her father’s B&B. But the more time she spends with the lean, hard-bodied ex-cop at the inn and on the track, the more Gemma sees that Pax is nothing like his brother. Despite their anguished history, she’s tempted to take their relationship into high gear . . . if she can face the past and risk her heart. Praise for Falling Hard “An addicting read! Falling Hard is the perfect example of going back home to find yourself, and maybe love, in a world full of second chances.”—New York Times bestselling author Jen McLaughlin “An easy and engaging read, Falling Hard is so much more than a sexy second-chance-at-love story. It’s about being brave enough to take that chance and strong enough to fight for it.”—Wendy S. Marcus, award-winning author of All I Need Is You “Remember that bad boy you told yourself to stay away from—the one who could only lead to no good? Tina Wainscott has a way of luring you back to him and making you wish you’d never let him go.”—Cecy Robson award-winning author of Once Kissed “Tina Wainscott has mastered the second chances trope in the tender and heartwarming Falling Hard. Add a dash of suspense and you get a five-star recipe that kept me nibbling on the pages all day!”—Violetta Rand, author of Loving Lucas “Falling Hard has a powerful message and will absolutely be a book I pick up to read again.”—Carlene Inspired “I love second-chance romance, and when it mixes with a good story line and some good messages . . . Well, I love this book.”—Abby’s Dirty Little Secret “Bottom line, the magnetic chemistry between Pax and Gemma is visceral, making Falling Hard a great romantic read.”—Tome Tender Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

"Former actress Emma Rothschild is partying in Vegas in disguise. But I'm not fooled. Five years ago, I knew that body better than my own, and I haven't forgotten a single detail--not the curve of her hip beneath my hand or the hitch in her breath when I kiss her neck. When Emma's unexpectedly left alone in Sin City, I agree to spend the weekend with her. As friends. Why not? If I can knock down the toughest guys in the NFL, I'm strong enough to keep my hands to myself, even if she is the sexiest woman I've ever met. Emma is part of my past--years so shrouded in secrets that not even my best friends know the truth about who I am. I'm a single dad now and not interested in revisiting my old ways or trying to win back the only woman I ever let close enough to break my heart. But this is Vegas, where all bets are off, and with Emma, nothing ever goes as planned ..."--Back cover.

**Currently 33% off retail price! (Price as marked in basket.)** Nine of Dale Cameron Lowry’s best short romance stories are available for the first time in one book. Meet a sign language interpreter who finds unexpected love at middle-age, college students in their first relationships, a vampire who would rather be a vegan, and a proudly gay ex-Mormon who sells Bibles. From sweet to sensual, this collection exhibits the quirkiness, fun, and diversity Dale’s writing is known for. Part 1: Falling Fast • Mi Alma — Ex-Mormon Alma doesn’t know the first thing about alcohol, so he hires bartender Damian to help out at his office party. Their friendship simmers with sexual tension—and possibly something much deeper. • Loggerhead — Soon after falling in love, Jake makes Eric a promise inspired by an old track shirt. But demanding work schedules prevent them from following through. Six years later, they take the honeymoon they never had, heading to the Florida coast in search of sea turtles—and rekindling their passion for each other in the process. • Reading the Signs — The only thing Theo De Jong expects from his summer linguistics academy is more inspiration for his master’s thesis. Then he meets the American sign language expert Alfonso Grossman, and sparks fly. Part 2: Falling Fantastically • Born of Fire — The fairies on Ireland’s north coast are notorious for kidnapping, and Aodhán has the scars to prove it. When the fairies abduct the handsome youth Cainnech, Aodhán seeks to free him—but risks losing his health in the process. • Ghost of a Chance — When shy Jeremy meets mysterious Frank at a spooky old library, their connection is instant. Their romance waxes with the full moon—but just as quickly, Frank’s interest seems to wane. He insists he loves being with Jeremy. So why does he keep Jeremy at arm’s length? • Far From Home — Rajiv met his husband, Mateo, while working to transform Mars into a suitable home for humans. Years into their shared mission, Rajiv is ordered back to Earth to restore the barren lands of the American Midwest. With a little help from technology, the two men find innovative ways to nurture their long-distance relationship. • Sweeter Than Blood — Keith was a vegan before a hot encounter with a stranger turned him into a vampire. Though his sire tries to help him rein in his impulses, temptation is strong in the form of Andres, one of Keith’s regular barbershop customers. When Andres finally asks Keith on a date, the real danger begins. Part 3: Falling Deep • Rough Love — Blake thinks new boyfriend Michael doesn’t like French kissing. Michael thinks Blake doesn’t like rough sex. Neither are virgins, except in the art of conversation. Can they set things straight before the honeymoon’s over? • Pacific Rimming — For Mike’s 40th birthday, husband Ken encourages him to bed a gorgeous 20-something man they encounter in Pacific Rim National Park. A night of no-holds-barred passion among the three men reveals a sizzling chemistry. Can what started as a one-night stand transform into a threesome that lasts?
