Cora Carmack - Szakítópróba
Szüzesség. Bliss Edwards hamarosan végez a főiskolán, de még nem veszítette el. Mivel megelégelte, hogy már csak ő szűz a barátai közül, elhatározza, hogy a lehető leggyorsabb és legegyszerűbb módon fogja orvosolni a problémát: egy egyéjszakás kalanddal. A dolog azonban nem úgy sül el, ahogy tervezte. Pánikba esik, és faképnél hagy egy elképesztően helyes srácot meztelenül az ágyában, ráadásul olyan indokkal, amit senki sem venne be. És ha ez még nem lenne elég kínos, amikor megérkezik az utolsó félévének első órájára, döbbenten ismeri fel az új tanárát. Őt hagyta ott nyolc órával korábban meztelenül az ágyban... Cora Carmack egy huszonegynehány éves író, aki huszonegynehány évesekről ír. Sok mindennel foglalkozott már életében. Volt unalmas munkája (pl. egy hipermarketben), izgalmas munkája (pl. színházban), stresszes állása (pl. tanárként) és álommunkája (pl. az írás). Imádja a színházat, az utazást és bármit, ami megnevetteti. Szereti a szereplőit a lehető legképtelenebb helyzetekbe hozni, és miközben segít rajtuk, megpróbálja őket összeboronálni valakivel. Hiszen a kétbalkezes embereknek is szükségük van szerelemre…
Tammara Webber - Easy - Egyszeregy
Egy lány, aki úgy gondolja, a bizalmat megtörik, az ígéreteket megszegik és a hűség csak illúzió. Egy fiú, aki úgy hiszi, az igazság relatív, a hazugság elkendőzi a kibírhatatlan fájdalmat és a bűntudat örök. A fiú figyelte a lányt, de nem ismerte őt. Aztán egy váratlan összecsapás jóvoltából a megmentőjévé vált… Tagadhatatlan vonzerő hatott közöttük. Ám a múlt, amelyen a fiú kemény munkával igyekezett felülkerekedni, és a jövő, amelybe a lány őszinte hitét vetette, azzal fenyegetett, hogy elszakítja őket egymástól. Csak együtt vehették föl a harcot a fájdalom és a bűntudat ellen; csak együtt nézhettek szembe az igazsággal, és találhattak rá a szerelem nem várt erejére. Vajon a találkozásuk megerősíti őket hitükben, vagy megcáfol mindent?
Jennifer L. Armentrout - White Hot Kiss
One kiss could be the last. Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses. Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever. Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul. But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.
