When all else fails, find love.
Eight brand new romances for fans of the West Wing, fired-up #resistance fighters, and everyone who ever had a crush on that guy at a protest...
by Adriana Anders
Veronica Cruz is in the fight of her life for a seat on the city council. Meeting reclusive finance genius Zach Hubler should be a stroke of good luck—he has the power to sway public opinion. But when Election Day comes around and things don’t go as expected, Veronica has to know: just how shady is the man of her dreams?
by Dakota Gray
He’s an escort, but that’s not his biggest secret. She’s a maid at the hotel he uses “for business.” When their worlds collide, everything is put on the line. But indulging every secret desire comes at a cost, and the sins of the past won’t be forgotten.
by Amy Jo Cousins
All Kaz Shamsi wanted to do was get his college students to and from the DC protest without losing any of them. Getting caught up in the fringes of anarchist violence was not on the agenda. Neither was a motorcycle escape, messing around with a bandanna-masked antifa protestor, or figuring out that guy was one of the students he was supposed to be chaperoning. Now he’s got a ten-hour bus ride back to campus ahead of him, with a stupidly cute student who makes terrible decisions trying to talk Kaz into making one more.
KISSING AND OTHER FORMS OF SEDITION
by Emma Barry
When a global crisis threatens to go nuclear, the world tips upside down and spills out Graham Wilcox’s unspoken feelings for Cadence Martel. Cadence is equal parts shocked and delighted by his confession, but one night of passion isn’t enough. So the new lovers set out on a road trip to save the world.
TRUTH, LOVE AND SUSHI
by Stacey Agdern
When First Daughter Caroline Crosby finds herself in possession of the one document that can bring her father and his administration down, she turns to a real life social justice warrior for help. Max Wilcox isn’t sure what to make of Caroline: is this an elaborate hookup or a political conspiracy? But he has to make up his mind fast because the information and their chemistry could change the world—or break their hearts.
MY DELIGHT IS IN HER
by Jane Lee Blair
When Leonard West chose the pastorate, his college girlfriend chose a life without him. But not wanting to be a pastor’s wife didn’t mean Kim Jones didn’t want to work for the greater good. Now, her resistance work has led her back to Leonard, and they must grapple with their old pain. Can they trust God and each other enough to try again?
by Ainsley Booth
Marcus Dane left the tech world and joined the National Park Service a decade ago. Now an intrepid reporter has tracked down the park ranger-who-could-have-been-a-billionaire and, even worse, she has a theory that could blow his quiet life to smithereens. He needs to send her packing. But he’s already tumbled head-over-heels in insta-lust with her flippy ponytail and smart mouth, and he just can’t seem to let her go.
LIFE, LIBERTY, AND WORSHIP
by Tamsen Parker
Paige Robinson has been working out her angst about the new administration in spin class, until a handsome stranger with maddening politics harshes her mellow. Now she’s determined to get even…in the bedroom. Always awkward Carter Cox is shocked when his crush propositions him, but there’s no way he’s turning her down. Will their filthy assignation provide the catharsis Paige has in mind, or can they truly cross the aisle to find more?

Grassroots by Adriana Anders - 5 stars
I adored this unique story. Zach was such a sweet and caring man. I loved watching him evolve from being reclusive and shy. I also enjoyed witnessing the connection and passion he had with Veronica. I've never truly imagined what it must be like for a blind man to form an intimate relationship. I liked how Veronica took the time to understand him and how the author formed their connection.
Deep Throat by Dakota Gray - 5 stars
Dakota always delivers the hot and dirty. I've been addicted to her stories since I first read Perv. Her heroes are alpha males with soft hearts and dirty mouths, and the ladies are strong, sexy, and never hesitate to put their man in their place. I loved Hailey and Davis's story. There was a little mystery and lots of passion. It made me want to grab my hubby. 😉
Resistance by Amy Jo Cousins - 3.5 stars
Good but tedious story. I felt lost the entire first chapter and felt like there was too much politically charge discussions. Once we moved on to the motorcycle escape, I was wrapped up in it. I was anxious to see where Kaz and Will's connection would lead. I only wish we would have gotten a little more.
Kissing and Other Forms of Sedition by Emma Barry - 4 Stars
This was a short but enjoyable story. It was only four chapters, but the author was able to clearly develop or rather enhance the existing relationship between Garrett and Cadence. The focus was on the moment that these characters finally come together. They've been working with one another for over a year without expressing their feelings. I loved witnessing the moment of acquiescence and their passion.
Truth, Love, and Sushi by Stacey Agdern - 4.5 stars
Political intrigue and forbidden lovers, what more could you ask for? I was sucked into this story. Caroline and Max were great characters and the perfect, yet unlikely, pair. I only wish we would have gotten to witness more intimacy between the two. This would make a great full-length novel.
My Delight Is In Her by Jane Lee Blair - 4 star
This was a surprisingly spiritual and lovely story. I liked the characters and their cause. I was happy with their eventual acceptance of each others feelings/opinions and reconciliation. However, I struggled with the reason for Kim and Leonard's break-up all those years ago and Kim's reasoning. She appeared selfish and too angry in my opinion. And it was difficult for me to see her as the wounded woman she portrayed. I also had a hard time believing that her friend wouldn't call her out on her selfishness and unreasonable expectations of Leonard.
Personal Disaster by Ainsley Booth - 5 stars
Ugh!!! Why do you do this to me, Ainsley?! I need the rest of their story! Let me back up for you readers... Marcus and Poppy's story was perfect. I wouldn't really say this is a cliffhanger since we get a full account of their falling for each other and expectations for the future. But Ainsley certainly leaves it open and hints at more when she says, "The End (For Now)." I can't wait to see what's in store for this pair.
Life, Liberty, and Worship by Tamsyn Parker - 4 stars
Intense and hot but a bit off putting. I was immediately drawn to the tension that was palpable between Carter and Paige. My anticipation was at an all time high for these two to finally connect. I also loved the fact that Carter was nerdy and awkward. Paige conversely was strong, out spoken, and passionate about everything. I'll say that I enjoyed their first intimate experience; however, I wanted to cry and yell for Carter once it was over. Paige kinda lost her appeal at that point. I understand being strong in your convictions, but I thought she unfairly judged Carter and expected respect even when she wasn't willing to try to understand or except his differences.
