Four sci-fi romance stories that women meeting the man/alien of their dreams.
When Rachel breaks the news to her boyfriend that she's pregnant with his child, the last thing she expects is for him to break up with her. He doesn't get the opportunity to leave her, though, before the invasion of earth by Vendi -- large, muscular aliens bent on rounding up women and taking them to their spaceships.
On board one of the ships, Rachel lies and tells the Vendi in charge of medicine, Argo, that she isn't pregnant. Too soon, though, she realizes that the women kept on board will be systematically raped to become breeders. She'll do anything it takes to avoid that fate and save her unborn child, but she certainly doesn't plan on falling in love.

A delicious and all new reimagining of Lauren Blakely's original fake fiancé romance!
I don't mean to just blurt it out. "Why, yes I'm engaged!"
But once I say it to a potential client, there's only one logical thing to do -- cast the role of my fake fiancé.
Easy enough. As a casting director, my job is to find the most talented players for every part, so I choose dreamy, edgy, sexy, sarcastic Reeve.And I sign him up for one week in the role of mine.
It's not as if I'll fall for him in five nights even if we get a little cozy one night at theater. It's not as if I'll want more even after a scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York Public Library.
??I can't let myself fall because on Friday at midnight the curtain drops on our fake romance... ?

Note : The books in the Jason Green series are stand alone novels and can be read in any order.
The azure waters of a serene tropical paradise hide a sinister and murderous criminal undercurrent. A dark secret exposed leads to appalling bloodshed and chaos. How did it all go so dreadfully wrong?
Ex soldier Jason Green was depressed and had been drinking far too much. The endless London winter had been bitterly cold. The freelance insurance fraud work was mundane, but this changes early on a frozen February morning.
The wealthy client was desperate.
Just how was his high flying young son making so much money?
It sounded like a dream assignment. An escape from the city and a bit of travel.
And for a while it was.
But on an idyllic island utopia, someone is watching, and a dangerous criminal cartel operates quietly in the shadows.
As Green digs deeper he uncovers the truth, but a series of unfortunate events occur. Events far beyond his control. Events that result in unspeakable ...
A penguin that is convinced he is human. A cheerful yet neurotic square sponge, and a pathologically depressed tortoise, who spends most of his time hunched up under his shell. These characters are outrageous, mischievous, naughty and very lovable. They will shock and offend with their wacky and hilarious behavior. Comedy is woven together with a sinister and unsettling plot. A goofy, ridiculously funny fantasy full of adventure, mystery and suspense. This book is for adults only, and definitely not for children.

When Dmitri is abducted at his own engagement party to Lucie, his star-crossed brother and fiancée must set aside their woes and differences to rescue him from the impenetrable Wintersea fortress. A precocious castle ward, a fascinating love-quadrangle, a plot to murder the king, and a hit-woman harlot complete this action-packed romantic comedy in another wickedly fast-paced fantasy adventure from C.K. Brooke, prolific fantasy author.
