1. Claiming Atlas, by Jessalyn Jameson
Erotic contemporary romance, with a high heat level
Atlas Reynolds has it made. The bassist for a thriving rock band, complete with a world tour under their belts, Atlas has everything he’s ever dreamed of. Who knew getting everything you wanted would become… boring? After a chance encounter on a last minute solo trip to Las Vegas, he finds himself one of a select few men invited to dine in the dark with the hottest playmates of the past decade. Seeking a new diversion, he heads out for a mind-blowing night of debauchery in the city that invented the word.
After years in the Vegas spotlight, Kayla Sanders is ready to hang up her sequins and stilettos, until she receives an invitation to one last epic gig. Unable to resist the opportunity to let her persona ‘Kincaid Summers’ go out with a bang, Kayla accepts the invitation, landing her in the lap of Atlas Reynolds--bassist of famous rock band, Banging Cade. When one last hurrah turns into a night of unbridled passion, Kay thinks she just might be the one to tame Atlas’ wild heart.
But when the lights turn on, will Atlas want the real woman behind the facade?
2. Saved, by H.L. Anderson
"Clean" adult contemporary romance. Kissing etc. but no sex shown
Theresa Kent is a wife, mom, and hardworking nurse living in rural Colorado. Life is good until her increasingly despondent, unemployed husband suddenly snaps—his vicious attack leaves Theresa fighting for her life as she tries to escape the insane version of the man she loves.
Ryan Tucker appears to have it all, except he’s been merely existing, not living, for the the last three years. His emotions get a much needed jump start when he rescues Theresa from the torment her life has become in just a matter of days. Ryan feels an instant and fierce desire to protect this stranger that fell into his life.
Hanging over their heads is the knowledge that Theresa’s husband is still out there, hunting for her.
Can two broken souls be repaired, or will the demons of the past and present come between the repressed love that grows between them?
