Penelope Ward - The ​Day He Came Back
It ​was the summer of my life. I’d met the guy of my dreams. Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off-limits. But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful. He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help. Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life. What a summer it was. Until it all ended—badly. I was never supposed to see Gavin again. That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years. I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away. When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again. But I wasn’t prepared. What if he hated me? What if he loved someone else now? I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns. And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.

Penelope Ward - Jaded ​and Tyed
The ​first time I met Jade Jameson, I lost my words and accidentally dropped a beer bottle, smashing it to the ground. The Broadway star sister of my brother’s wife had paid us a surprise visit on Christmas. Quite simply, she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen; I was mesmerized. I’d made a fool of myself, though, and to make matters worse, my girlfriend was standing right there when it all happened. Jade went back to New York, and we didn’t cross paths again for a year—until one night when a Facebook notification lit up my screen, setting off a chain of events that would change my life forever.

Penelope Ward - Love ​Online
From ​New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel. We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind. Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary. Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out. From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed. She was an addiction. At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise. Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman. But I couldn’t really have her. I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her. So I took a chance. And that was when our love story really began.

Penelope Ward - Gentleman ​Nine
From ​New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty. Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years—before he broke her heart. Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room. Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men. One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.) Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Penelope Ward - Querido ​hermanastro
La ​vida de Greta se pondrá patas arriba cuando Elec, hijo de su padrastro, se muda a vivir con ellos. Elec es un inadaptado, un engreído dispuesto a atormentarla… Greta no lo soporta. Le fastidia que la tome con ella porque no quiere estar allí, le fastidia que traiga chicas a su habitación, pero lo que más le fastidia es cómo reacciona su cuerpo cuando lo tiene delante… Al principio pensó que lo único bueno que tenía eran sus abdominales perfectos y sus tatuajes; que no había nada más que un físico, pero se engañaba, había más, mucho más, y se le escapaba de las manos… Una noche, las cosas empezaron a cambiar entre ellos y llegaron a un punto crítico. ¿Cómo hacer frente a estos sentimientos? ¿Podría Elec romperle el corazón?

Penelope Ward - Mack ​Daddy
From ​New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a sexy, STANDALONE second-chance romance. They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right? So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen. At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women. Everyone wanted a piece of the hot single father of the sweet little boy. I was riddled with jealousy, because they didn’t know that—to me—he was much more. They didn’t know about our past. He’d chosen my school for his son on purpose, because Mack and I, we had unfinished business. As my friend Lorelai so eloquently put it: “Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls.” And I was suffering in pain from my case. I was still intensely attracted to Mack. I tried to resist him, immersing myself further into a relationship with another man just to protect my heart. Not to mention, getting involved with a parent was strictly against school rules. But seeing Mack day in and day out was breaking me down. And soon I might be breaking all the rules. Author's note – Told in alternating points of view, Mack Daddy is a full-length standalone novel.

Penelope Ward - Jake ​Understood
A ​different side to the story: Jake's side. "We're getting a new roommate," they said. I thought nothing of it...until she walked in the door. Her hand trembled in mine as she looked at me with fearful eyes. My entire world spun on its axis. Nina... It was a mismatch made in heaven: innocent girl from the boonies moves in with tattooed, pierced, badboy engineer. I came up with a bet, a plan to tutor her in math and coach her through her phobias. What I wasn't betting on was becoming addicted to her. But I was living a double life on weekends, and once she found out about it, she'd be gone. I had to protect myself and that meant one thing: I couldn't fall in love. Author's note: This is NOT an exact retelling of Jake Undone. While pivotal scenes from Jake Undone are retold from Jake's point of view, Jake Understood is its own story that includes ALL-NEW material from both the past and present time where Jake Undone left off. It can STAND ALONE, but if both books are read, should follow Jake Undone for the best reading experience. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

Penelope Ward - Drunk ​Dial
From ​New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. I didn’t think he’d call me back. I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets. Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake. A complete STANDALONE.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - British ​Bedmate
Dear ​Bridget, I'm writing this letter because it's highly doubtful I'll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. We're totally wrong for each other. You're the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I'm just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But here's the thing... for some bloody reason, I can't stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. I want you. The only reason I'm even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don't believe it's one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we're joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. So, what's the purpose of this note? I guess it's a reminder that we're adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it's to let you know that I'm leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you'd like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. No questions asked. Think about it. Or don't. Whatever you choose. It's doubtful I'll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway. --Simon

You’re ​not supposed to want the one who torments you. When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be. I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here. I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him. At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night. Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California. It had been years since I’d seen Elec. When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again. And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane. I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken.

Penelope Ward - Neighbor ​Dearest - A legkedvesebb szomszéd
Tényleg ​lehet barátság férfi és nő között? A váratlan szakításom után arra vágytam a legkevésbé, hogy az új szomszédom az exemre, Elecre hasonlítson – pláne, hogy még nála is szexibb legyen. Viszont a modora és a viselkedése már egyáltalán nem volt olyan megnyerő, mint a megjelenése. El is neveztem magamban Mérges Művésznek. A két kutyája ugatásától pedig képtelen voltam aludni. Így nem is bántam, hogy látványosan kerül, mint aki tudni sem akar a létezésemről. Aztán egy este kiderült, hogy Damien mindent tud rólam. A hálószobám falán lévő lyukon keresztül ugyanis fültanúja volt a terapeutámmal folytatott összes telefonbeszélgetésnek, így az én sármos festő szomszédom jól ismerte a legféltettebb titkaimat. És bár nagyon próbált távol tartani magától, tudtam, hogy ugyanúgy érez irántam, hiszen a szívdobogása nem csal. Azt hittem, Elec már összetörte a szívemet, pedig nagyon is egyben volt, és még hevesebben kalapált Damienért. Csak reménykedhettem, hogy nem ő fogja végleg megsemmisíteni. Vesd bele magad a sodró történetbe!

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Hate ​Notes
It ​all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed. He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after. But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined. Something new. But I have no idea how this one is going to end . . .

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Szívtipró ​pilóta
Pénz ​vagy szerelem? Melyiket válasszuk? Az olvasó fejben talán azonnal megválaszolja a kérdést, gondolván: ez pofonegyszerű. Számomra viszont nem az. Említettem, hogy egy csomó pénzről van szó? Rengeteg pénzről! El kell utaznom valahová, hogy ezt átgondoljam. Hirtelen ötlettől vezérelve útnak indultam, de amikor a repülőtér várótermében összefutottam a szexi Carterrel, a dolgok más irányt vettek. Túlfűtött beszélgetésbe elegyedtünk, aztán ő elhúzott. Azt hittem, többé nem találkozunk. A sors azonban másként rendelte. Meglepetés! Carter veszélyes pasi, és folyton ide-oda repül. Mágnesként vonzottuk egymást, de tudtam, hogy a dolog csak átmeneti lehet. Főleg, amikor meghallottam az előéletéről szóló pletykákat. De rákattantam a pasira, és semmi más nem számított. Tartottam tőle, hogy ebből óriási pofára esés lesz, mert valahogy a lelkem mélyén mégis arra vágytam, hogy én legyek az, aki megzabolázza ezt a szívtipró pilótát. A legkevesebb, amit elmondhatok, hogy valóban a hetedik mennyországba repített. De egyszer minden jó dolog véget ér, nem igaz? Csakhogy a mi kalandunk olyan véget ért, amire egyáltalán nem számítottam.

Penelope Ward - Stepbrother ​Dearest - Legdrágább mostohabátyám
Nem ​kellene akarnod őt. Amikor a mostohabátyám, Elec a gimi utolsó évében hozzánk költözött, nem voltam felkészülve arra, hogy mekkora szemét. Utáltam, hogy bunkón viselkedik velem csak azért, mert nem akar ott lenni. Utáltam, hogy lányokat hoz haza a suliból és visz fel a szobájába. De amit a legjobban utáltam, az az volt, ahogy a testem akaratom ellenére reagált rá. Először azt hittem, csupán kőkemény, tetovált izmai és markáns arca lehet vonzó benne. De a dolgok új irányt vettek köztünk, mígnem egy éjjel minden fenekestül felfordult. Aztán épp olyan gyorsan, ahogy betoppant az életembe, már vissza is ment Kaliforniába. Évek teltek el, mire újra láttam Elec-et. Amikor a tragédia lesújtott a családunkra, újra szembe kellett néznem vele. És szent ég, a kamasz, akiért egykor megőrültem, most férfivá érett, aki egyenesen az eszemet vette! Volt egy olyan érzésem, hogy megint darabokra törik majd a szívem. Perzselő vágy és nyers erő. Láss a mélyére!

Penelope Ward - Mack ​Daddy
From ​New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a sexy, STANDALONE second-chance romance. They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right? So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen. At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women. Everyone wanted a piece of the hot single father of the sweet little boy. I was riddled with jealousy, because they didn’t know that—to me—he was much more. They didn’t know about our past. He’d chosen my school for his son on purpose, because Mack and I, we had unfinished business. As my friend Lorelai so eloquently put it: “Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls.” And I was suffering in pain from my case. I was still intensely attracted to Mack. I tried to resist him, immersing myself further into a relationship with another man just to protect my heart. Not to mention, getting involved with a parent was strictly against school rules. But seeing Mack day in and day out was breaking me down. And soon I might be breaking all the rules. Author's note – Told in alternating points of view, Mack Daddy is a full-length standalone novel.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Mister ​Moneybags
A ​new standalone from New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I met Bianca in an elevator. She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck. The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed. She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment. Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn't appreciate the simple things in life. So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn't want it to end. I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email. I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot. I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into. I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her. And she was falling for two men. Only, both men were me. And when she found out, we were both going to lose her. Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn't prepared for what came after. All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
