There’s only one bright spot Jasmine Hayes can see when she’s suckered into helping plan her high school reunion. At least she’ll be able to reconnect with old friends Chase Randolph and Alex Landry. There’s nothing she regrets more than losing touch with those two handsome guys.

Chase and Alex hadn’t planned to attend the reunion, but the chance to see Jasmine again has Chase intrigued. Alex is his best friend and love of his life, but Jasmine will always be the girl who got away.

One instant message is all it takes to center Alex’s thoughts on a lusty reunion with Jasmine. He’s extremely happy with Chase, but she’s always been the girl of his dreams. He can’t help but wonder if the chemistry the three of them had in high school is still there.

Renewing old ties, however, puts triple the strain on some old ones. The choice they face is which ones to risk severing—and which ones are worth keeping.

Once in Sin City, Maureen’s Aunt Lottie shows her that the fastest way out of a financial hell doesn’t lie in Maureen’s luck at a blackjack table, but in the auction of a much more controversial commodity: Maureen’s virginity. Vegas is the perfect place to cash in. What they decide to do will not only make headlines in the Nevada city, but around the world.

The last thing Maureen needs right now is to fall for sexy Nicholas Webster, who’s used to getting everything he wants. Because when the time comes, she’d have to betray the man she’s come to love in order to fulfill her contract. Will she be able to sell herself? And at what price?

According to her Spirit Guide, Halle’s presence in the past will bring about justice for a missing woman to whom Halle bears an uncanny resemblance. Soon after arriving, Halle is kidnapped by the notorious outlaw, Antonio Whitehorse.

Before abducting the beautiful, yet oddball woman whose likeness appears on a reward poster, half-Navajo Antonio Whitehorse had only two concerns: saving The People from starvation and incarceration, and avenging the death of his family. Now he has a third–the captive who’s stolen his heart. She claims she’s from the future–and that she knows the chilling fate awaiting them all.

With the U.S. Calvary in pursuit of a fugitive Whitehorse, and a murderer poised to take revenge on Halle, passions and cultures collide in this fast-paced, sweeping tale of love and survival.

Who will survive and will love find a way to keep them together forever?

Price: $4.50

Description: Sometimes what you’re looking for is closer than you think.

Jessie’s life is a mess. In the eight hellish months since her husband died in a freak accident, she’s been mugged, her house has been trashed, and now she’s receiving frightening pranks calls. She resists a friend’s offer of a weekend getaway—her grief is still too fresh to consider meeting anyone new.

Then again, since it’s a party for gay men, there won’t be any pressure, right?

ER doctor Caleb James feels perfectly at ease among his gay brother’s friends, but one look at Jessie sparks a sexual tension that’s impossible to ignore. A few drinks and a few hours of conversation later, things move a lot faster than either of them expect. Jessie is left confused and Caleb aches with regret—and love for a woman who is still guarding her heart.

Pressure is the last thing she needs. But as it becomes apparent that her string of misfortunes trace back to her husband’s death, help is what she’s going to get. Caleb’s help…ready or not.

Alien super soldier Grady Prime’s missions routinely lead him in unexpected directions, but his latest assignment—to kill a rogue warrior—is far beyond routine. This time he meets a woman who embroils him in an adventure of the highest order. Love.

Gina has lived among aliens so long, she’s lost her fear of them. She is undeniably attracted to Grady, even though their respective duties force them apart. Then, on a mission to a far-flung outpost, an encounter with a man from her past leaves her torn between her flaming desire for Grady, and her still-simmering love for an old flame.

Jim and his group of human dissidents live in secret, away from alien patrols. He has responsibilities, and covert operations to manage. But when Gina re-enters his life, only one thing matters—being with her.

Brought together by chance, the three form an alliance that pushes the boundaries of desire and make unexpected connections that could save the human race from alien conquerors…

Description: Big girls don’t cry over a spilled chocolate milkshake—they run like crazy.

Alex Barrett’s all too “real life” sentence is almost over. She’s spent years being a parent to her siblings—and her flaky mother. What was her reward, other than an empty bed? Nothing. And now that she’s almost free, nothing’s exactly what she plans to do. Except have fun.

One minute she’s one of thousands of panting female fans at hotter-than-hot Drew Hartford’s concert. The next, she’s all wet—and so is he. Okay, so it’s only because she dumped a milkshake all over him.

Drew’s meteoric rise to the top of the country charts is fueled by the swooning women who throw themselves at his feet. Alex? She’s different. When their icy paths cross, she doesn’t throw her panties, she beats a hasty retreat. There’s only one way to keep this intriguing lady around long enough to charm her out of those panties: offer her a job she can’t refuse.

Drew may be every female’s definition of a fantasy man, but a paycheck and a roll in the hay do not a relationship make. Besides, Alex is tired of living 24/7 for someone else. Even a someone who’s offering her dreams of happily ever after…

If you do not see your favorite retailer or publisher listed here, it’s possible the site does not offer a bestseller list or even a method to retrieve one, or may only update on an occasional basis. Many sites make “harvesting” and formatting a list a lengthy, tedious job (ex. this post required almost four hours). I will do my best to include at least two publisher-only sites each Wednesday, and rotate them from week to week whenever possible. This week Lyrical Press (Once Upon a Book Store) has been rotated in, while The Wild Rose Press has been rotated out. Never fear, TWRP will cycle back in, in future weeks.

Lists are retrieved from the individual retailers’ or publishers’ own websites, and are not official reports. At this time, I can find no mainstream news media, such as Publishers Weekly or The New York Times, tracking bestsellers in eBook format. Lists are gathered on Wednesday and reflect the rankings at the time they were retrieved. Please be aware that each site uses its own methods to arrive at or update a bestseller list (i.e. daily, hourly, etc.) and that no Internet server is infallible. Sometimes glitches happen.

For sites that list print and ebooks in the same list, every effort is made to separate out and/or note ebook-only romances. As with Internet servers, human glitches have also been known to occur.
