One night connected them.
One decision separated them.
One craving tempted them.

Ashlyn Hart was done with men, or at least those outside of her books. After stupidly falling for the charms of her cheating ex and having her heart broken yet again, she decided to create a new life. One that involved a career change, a new wardrobe, and the possibility of moving abroad. There was just one hurdle: the confident, stubborn and insanely-tempting Josh Crawford.

Josh Crawford hid behind the cliché bachelor lifestyle and a never-ending parade of women. He knew the game and played it well, but the night he tasted perfection four years ago never left him. Back then, he made a spur of the moment decision, one that he has battled with ever since. But beneath the playboy façade was a yearning that wouldn't dissapear. A craving for the only woman who could bring him to his knees: Ashlyn Hart.

Two weeks changes everything.
One night unravels the deepest of desires.
A simple taste unleashes memories that can't be tamed.

When the girl who dreams of a happily ever after collides with the guy who lives the ultimate cliffhanger, what ending awaits them? Will fear overshadow love? Will the past play hindrance to the future, or will temptation conquer it all?

I knew the exact moment I had become a 'yes' girl. December 16th, a cold winter's night, four years ago. The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no--a mistake I'd never make again. The dream of a 'happily ever after' was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I'd never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I'd never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I'd meet someone like him. The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.

I had no plans to become someones Prince Charming. I couldn't be. I refused to be. My plan was simple--do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life. I was back on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her--the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn't say no. The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.

A girl who cant say no.
A guy who craves redemption.
A chance encounter?

It all comes down to this.
One question.
One month.

Be My December?

First crush, first love, first kiss--Chloe must choose between her virtual almost-boyfriend and her best guy friend in this addition to the sweet and clean Flirt series.

Chloe has the best almost-boyfriend ever. Trevor is smart, talented, witty, and good-looking. Basically, he's the perfect guy for her--except for one tiny detail. He lives hundreds of miles away. Chloe met Trevor at music camp when they were kids and was so excited when they reconnected in an online music forum a few months ago. And they've been flirting non-stop ever since.

Chloe's boy-crazy best friend Vanessa thinks it's the most romantic thing she's ever heard, though her other best friend, Kazuo, isn't so sure. Turns out Kaz actually has a crush on her! Chloe can't imagine her life without him, but she's never thought of him that way. Still, Kaz talks Chloe into giving him a chance and going to the big school dance together. Chloe is almost ready to agree when she gets the most amazing news--Trevor is coming for a visit!

But when Trevor shows up, things don't quite go as well as Chloe was expecting, and by the time she realizes her old camp buddy has changed--and that he might not be Mr. Perfect (for her) after all--Kaz has already asked Vanessa to the dance. Did Chloe just miss her chance at true love?

"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you..."

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neil can't believe this is his job now--reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be :internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers--not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say...?
