Thrill ride by Julie Ann Walker — Ex-navy SEAL Rock Babineaux is as Cajun as they come---spicy, sexy, and more than a bit wicked. But would he actually betray his country? Even his friends on the special-ops Black Knights team aren't sure they can trust him. Now the target of a massive manhunt, Rock knows the only way to protect the team---especially his partner, Vanessa---is to run...
Coming undone by Lauren Dane — More than friends, Brody and Elise discover in each other what they need--wild, physical passion without commitment. But it’ll take a shadow from Elise’s past to make them look beyond what they need to what they truly desire.
