Tainted love and paybacks...in a black satin tux?
Author Ashley Vaughn deserves nothing less, according to Vic, the unwilling star of Ashley's latest erotic best seller. Ashley spends her life writing erotic romance and her nights alone. When a sexy butch sweeps her off her feet following a book signing, she's too afraid to believe in the miracle of love at first sight to take a chance. Instead, she writes about it.
Victoria Hadley, chef and restaurateur, believes she's found the woman of her dreams. Until she discovers Ms. Right has used their night of passion to further her career. Bent on revenge, she lures Ashley into a trap. But is the trap about to snare her too?
Ryann is thrilled when her friend Stuart asks her to help him plan his last-minute wedding. He moved across the country over a year ago, and she misses him like crazy. As an executive with event planning experience, Ryann’s the best person to help him fulfill his wildest wedding dreams.
However, things in Colorado are not what she expects, especially Maddie, the maid of honor for the other groom. Maddie is attractive, and while she’s certainly Ryann’s type, she has some different ideas about the wedding. Also, flirting with her is incredibly distracting, especially when Ryann just wants to keep things professional. With just two weeks to the big event on Valentine’s Day, can Ryann help Stuart to wedded bliss, and avoid his well-intentioned attempts to set her up with Maddie?

For golf pro Piper Holthaus, a not-so-secret romance with wealthy socialite Vanessa Devereaux in exchange for a life of privilege and promotion of her art seems like a small price to pay.
Brook Myers is determined not to let her wife Meg’s substance abuse ruin her life or her new catering business, but Meg really needs her and leaving the woman she once loved seems unfathomable.
When Piper and Brook meet on a secluded fairway, neither can deny the intense connection that just might be love, but the entanglements of their past may destroy any possibility of a future.

Marion Hargreaves is a Hollywood legend and the finest actress of her generation. She’s navigated her career with aplomb for nearly thirty years by being intensely private about her personal life and her sexuality. But a year on from her third Oscar, nothing seems interesting anymore until she becomes a voice actor for Petunia’s Potion, an animated movie based on her favorite children’s book. That role becomes the challenge of a lifetime when she discovers her co-star is the out and proud global pop icon Jessica Carmichael—the woman Marion fell in love with and whose heart she abruptly broke without explanation.
The last thing Marion wants is to work in such close proximity to Jessica. She can’t forgive herself for the way she left twenty ago but can’t resist the attraction that has only gotten stronger with time. Being true to herself and her passions isn’t going to be easy and may set the stage for love in the limelight.

Taylor Braxton needs to get married, then divorced, with no strings attached.
Taylor, a physical trainer, has just inherited her grandfather’s B&B on Maui, but there’s a catch. She can’t have the deed until the day after her one-year wedding anniversary. She’d rather stick a fork in her eye than get hitched, but the B&B is a dream come true. So all she has to do is find a woman who will agree to fake a marriage. How hard can it be?
Jayden Wheaton could use a year in paradise to help her recovery. After a crippling accident, she hires Taylor in the hope of gaining back some mobility. When Taylor casually mentions her dilemma, Jayden jumps at the chance, hoping the warm island temperatures will help with her chronic pain. A marriage masquerade in exchange for a year in Paradise? Yes, please. After all, it’s not like either of them are looking for romance, so there’s zero chance of their feelings complicating the arrangement. Right?
Adella del Amanecer is from a noble family whose pride comes from dedication to the kingdom of Sarras. She works long hours as a diplomat and barely has time for her sisters, let alone romance, a fact that makes her nights feel longer than her days, especially when she thinks about the lovely bard on the corner.
As an ex-spy for the Firellian Empire, Bridget Leir has fled from crises and corruption until settling in Sarras, where she can hide as a bard. When a chance meeting with a beautiful diplomat leads to romance, Bridget’s new life feels filled with promise, until Sarras investigates Firellian rumblings of war. If the truth comes out, the Sarrasians—and Adella—will never believe Bridget’s spying days are done, and worse—Adella will be accused of sleeping with the enemy. It’ll be the gallows for them both.
Praise from Publishers Weekly: "Wright sets up the Sisters of Sarras lesbian fantasy romance trilogy with solid worldbuilding, a delightfully awkward couple who bridge social realms, and an entertaining adventure that leaves plenty of room to grow....By the end, Wright has established strong personalities for Adella’s two sisters and taken the suspense plotline to the brink of war between Sarras and the Firellians, setting up strongly for the next volumes. Readers will be pleased."
