Penelope Ward - Neighbor ​Dearest
A ​STANDALONE NOVEL that does *not* need to be read in conjunction with any other book. From New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a friends to lovers story with sexy new characters. After getting dumped, the last thing I needed was to move next door to someone who reminded me of my ex-boyfriend, Elec. Damien was a hotter version of my ex. The neighbor I’d dubbed “Angry Artist” also had two massive dogs that kept me up with their barking. He wanted nothing to do with me. Or so I thought until one night I heard laughter coming through an apparent hole in my bedroom wall. Damien had been listening to all of my phone sessions with my therapist. The sexy artist next door now knew all of my deepest secrets and insecurities. We got to talking. He set me straight with tips to get over my breakup. He became a good friend, but Damien made it clear that he couldn’t be anything more. Problem was, I was falling hard for him anyway. And as much as he pushed me away, I knew he felt the same…because his heartbeat didn’t lie. I thought my heart had been broken by Elec, but it was alive and beating harder than ever for Damien. I just hoped he wouldn’t shatter it for good. Author's note – Neighbor Dearest is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Penelope Ward - The ​Anti-Boyfriend
At ​first, my neighbor Deacon frustrated me. Sure, he was great-looking and friendly. But our walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me awake while he “entertained” them. As a single mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it. So, finally it was my turn. When my daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my door. Miraculously, at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she eventually fell asleep in his arms. Deacon was rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr. Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer. After that night, we became friends. He’d go for coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff. But over time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer. Until one night we crossed the line. Our friendship turned into a complicated mess. I’d gone and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids. I knew Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into any plan he’d ever imagined for himself. He was wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.” Then why did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him?

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

Penelope Ward - Jake ​Understood (angol)
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.

Penelope Ward - The ​Aristocrat
The ​one that got away. Every girl has one, right? Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer. From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit. Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo. That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them. Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town. Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious. Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away. It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love. We both had one wish: more time together. But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back. A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away. I believed our story was over. Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core. I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer? Well, I knew nothing yet.

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.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Well ​Played
From ​New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes a new, sexy standalone novel. It all started with a bet. When my young son inherited half of his great grandfather’s historic inn, I decided to move us both to the place where I grew up. Notice I said half of the Inn. The other half now belonged to Levi Miller, the famous quarterback who had other ideas about what we should do with the property. We won’t mention that I accidentally injured him during our first meeting, causing him to get eight stitches. You could say we got off on the wrong foot. We bickered a lot as we both moved into the property while we figured things out. He wanted to unload the rundown place which, admittedly, needed a lot of work. I wanted to restore The Palm Inn to its original beauty and re-open it as a bed and breakfast. We couldn’t agree on anything. So Levi made me a proposal. One he thought I would surely lose. If I could sell out the place by the time he had to leave for training at the end of summer, he would back off and let me run it. But in the weeks that followed, we got more than we bargained for while we were living under the same roof. Levi and I got closer, and before I knew it, my nightly fantasies about the brawny Adonis became a reality. Not to mention, he was so great with my son. We were in over our heads in more ways than one. Because not only was he the last man on Earth I should be falling for because of our deal, but Levi was also my ex’s older brother. And now the inn was the least of my problems.

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.

Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person. Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Park ​Avenue Player - Szerelem a Park Avenue-n
Átlagos ​napnak indult, aztán megtörtént a baleset. A férfi, akivel összekoccantam, drága autót vezetett, és lélegzetelállítóan jóképű volt. Nagy kár, hogy egyben egy igazi seggfej is. Összevesztünk, hogy melyikünk hibázott, és azon is, hogy milyen lekezelő mondatok hagyták el száját. Végül megérkezett a rendőrség, mi pedig mentünk az utunkra, a biztosítótársaságokra hagyva a helyzet tisztázását. Nekem amúgy is oda kellett érnem arra az állásinterjúra, ami miatt annyira izgatott voltam. Ám az izgalom abban a pillanatban vált csalódottsággá, amikor megláttam, kihez is mentem interjúra. A koccanásos pasashoz. Upsz! Persze hogy nem kaptam meg az állást. A gond csak az volt, hogy nagyon meg akartam. Pontosabban, szükségem volt rá. Ezért, bár Hollis LaCroix pont annyira volt ijesztő, mint sármos, visszamentem hozzá, hátha ki tudom könyörögni, hogy adjon még egy esélyt. Gondolod, hogy lesz egy része a történetnek, amikor szerelmesek leszünk, majd boldogan élünk, amíg meg nem halunk, ugye? Hát, az élet szép kis csavart labdákat tud dobni. És amit mi kaptunk, arra egyáltalán nem számítottam. Merülj el a történetünkben!

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Hate ​Notes - Adok-kapok
Ez ​volt a leggyönyörűbb szerelmes levél, amit valaha olvasott. Bárcsak neki írták volna! Minden egy esküvői ruhába varrt titokzatos kék üzenettel kezdődött. Valami kék. A sosem viselt menyasszonyi ruhámat mentem eladni egy használtruhaboltba. Ekkor találtam meg egy másik menyasszony „valami régijét”. Egy lélegzetelállító, tollas, egyedi tervezésű ruha bélésébe volt tűzve a legszebb üzenet, amit valaha olvastam: „Köszönöm, hogy valóra váltottad minden álmom.” A kék levélpapíron dombornyomással a Reed Eastwood név szerepelt, aki nyilvánvalóan a földkerekség legromantikusabb férfija lehetett. És mint kiderítettem, a legvonzóbb is. Bárcsak itt véget értek volna az igaz szerelemmel kapcsolatos képzelgéseim! Mert azóta megtudtam egyet s mást Mr. Romantikáról. Arrogáns, cinikus és lekezelő. Én aztán tudom! A sors fintorának köszönhetően ráadásul még az új főnököm is. De ez nem fog megakadályozni abban, hogy kiderítsem, mi a története az utolsó szerelmes levelének. Annak a szerelmes levélnek, aminek nem a „boldogan éltek, amíg meg nem haltak” lett a vége. Az a történet azonban semmi ahhoz képest, ami köztünk van kibontakozóban. Egyre forróbb, csábítóbb és meglepőbb – őrjítőbb, mint bármi, amit el tudtam volna képzelni. Valami új. De fogalmam sincs, hogyan fog végződni… Hagyd, hogy magával ragadjon!

Penelope Ward - Vi Keeland - Dear ​Bridget, I Want You
From ​the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Penelope Ward - Jake ​Understood – Jake kitárulkozik
Csak ​annyit mondtak, hogy új lakótársunk lesz. Ennyiben is maradtunk… míg be nem lépett az ajtón. A keze remegett a markomban, és rettegő szemmel végigmért. Az egész világom a feje tetejére állt. Nina… Az ellentétek vonzzák egymást: a külvárosi lány beköltözik egy tetovált, piercinges, semmirekellő mérnökhöz. Fogadást ajánlottam: felzárkóztatom matekból, és kikúrálom a fóbiáiból. De azzal nem számoltam, hogy ráfüggök. Ám hétvégenként kettős életet éltem, és amint rájött, faképnél hagyott. Meg kellett védenem magam, aminek megvolt az egyetlen feltétele: nem eshettem szerelembe. Szerzői megjegyzés: Ez NEM a Jake megadja magát teljes újramesélése. Noha bizonyos kulcsjeleneteit újraélhetjük Jake szemszögéből, a Jake kitárulkozik önálló történet, benne VADONATÚJ részekkel a múltból és a Jake megadja magát utáni időkből. ÖNÁLLÓAN is olvasható, de a két könyv együttes elolvasása adja a teljes élményt. Kendőzetlen szexuális jelenetek és szókimondó nyelvezet. Csak tizennyolc éven felülieknek!

From ​the New York Times bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, comes a new forbidden STANDALONE romance. What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have? My name is Sevin. Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin. Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me. After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding. Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage. I’d accepted those rules and my fate. Until I met the one I wanted to sin with. That was when restraint became a problem…especially since "the one" wasn’t Elle. It was her sister, Evangeline. You know what they say about best laid plans. My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

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 - 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 - 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!

Penelope Ward - When ​August Ends
What ​do you do when a sexy, older man moves into your family’s summer rental? Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself—over and over. Things didn’t exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least. But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound energy. Nothing exciting ever happened on the lake—not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on our property. He’d booked it for the entire summer…and I was still trying to figure out why. When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of. I should have been in college. Instead, I was living my best life…as a maid. Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbidden. I knew he was just passing through town for the summer. I knew he was probably too old for me. Yet, I was drawn to him. Not to mention, he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning. I wanted him and made no secret of it. His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into something I might not recover from. Because he’s leaving at the end of the summer. And I have no idea what I’ll do when August ends.

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.
