Title: Emancipating Andie
Author: Priscilla Glenn
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Group: Adult
Release Date: April 2013
Ever since the one time Andie Weber threw caution to the wind – and paid the price for it – she’s learned that it’s safer and smarter to live life playing by the rules. Now she’s got a great apartment, a steady job, and a wonderful boyfriend in Colin; he’s sweet, stable, and essentially perfect – except maybe for the fact that his best friend is Chase.
Chase McGuire lives his carefree, unstructured life strictly for himself. Dripping sarcasm and oozing wit, he refuses to censor his feelings or opinions for anyone, making no apologies for either and wearing his abrasiveness like a badge of honor. No one has ever gotten under Andie’s skin the way Chase does – and vice versa.
So when Andie and Chase find themselves forced to take a two-day road trip together, they are already dreading an inevitable all-out war. But as the trip progresses, and the undeniable friction that has always defined their relationship slowly begins to wear away their preconceived notions of each other, Andie and Chase discover they both have a lot to learn about life, courage, happiness, and the age-old battle between logic and love.
Eight Random Facts About Emancipating Andie
By Priscilla Glenn
- This is not a love triangle book! Nor is there any cheating. I’ve gotten lots of questions about that, so I felt compelled to let you know right off the bat.
- The original title of EA was With Your Heart. My friend Brett, who’s an author and screenwriter, teased me mercilessly about it. And I mean mercilessly. To the point that I’d be at work and get a random text from him saying something like, “It really might be the worst title ever” or “My friend’s kid has a Winnie the Pooh book called “Pooh Gets Stuck” – still a better title than “With Your Heart.” (yes, I LOL’ed) Eventually I caved and changed the title, although I do miss getting those texts.
- I can actually play “Colorblind” by Counting Crows on the piano; the chords and notes mentioned are all accurate. I’m obsessed with the song and taught myself how to play it a couple of years ago. To be fair though, Andie’s story of learning how to play it is way better than mine. Read More…

Title: Beautifully Twisted
Author: Jennifer Domenico
Genre: Erotic Romance
Publish Date: May 8, 2013
~ Synopsis ~
Alexa Drake is at the top of her game. Heading up the London office for Patrick Collins Media, she’s done what it takes to get to the top and have the career and independence she’s always wanted. Her life in London is everything she’s worked hard to achieve, and she revels in her newfound control. If only she could forget the one man who brings her to her knees. Literally.
Scott Patrick is successful, commanding, and the kind of man women dream about. He’s also responsible for Alexa’s career success and her twisted view of love. Scott is a master at avoiding commitment and emotions and always thought of himself as the kind of guy who would never settle down. So why can’t he get Alexa out of his head?
When Scott suddenly turns up in London, Alexa has to decide if she can open herself up to the same man that broke her heart or if she’s ready to give someone new a chance.
Beautifully Twisted is an intense power struggle between two people who have a hard time being together but an even harder time staying apart.
~ Excerpt/Teaser ~
“I’m not like that anymore.”
“Yes you are. Remember, your office today. You let me touch you like that because you need me to touch you like that. No one else knows how. No one else can do to you what I do.”
“I know,” she whispers. She’s certainly tried to find someone who could. “I don’t want to be submissive anymore.” Read More…
Title: Jet (A Marked Men Novel)
Author: Jay Crownover
Release Date: May 28, 2013
Below is the deleted synopsis from Jet (sequel to Rule) that wasn’t used because it was too long and in first person. But Jay wanted to share it with all of her fans. So here it is.
Jet Keller was all kinds of temptation, wrapped up in too-tight pants and too many personal demons hidden in those dark eyes, rimmed with golden halos. He was every girl’s rock and roll fantasy, with an edge that made him just sharp enough to be hard to handle. And boy, oh boy, did I want to handle him in every way possible.
The trouble was that I was supposed to be making better decisions and walking a clean and much narrower path now. There could be no stops for the kind of things Jet inspired along the way, and no detours for the spontaneous combustion he brought with him. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on who was looking at the situation, it was a two-against-one battle, with my brain coming up short and my body and heart repeatedly overruling my better judgment.
