Here’s what’s new in February:

High Stick: Jarrett, the third installment in USA Today bestselling author Alicia Hunter Pace’s popular Nashville Sound series, is here! Ambitious, smart, and straight-laced, Nashville Sound forward Jarrett MacPherson is determined to walk in the footsteps of his All-American hockey-playing grandfather. Hard-working Merry Sweet toils by day in a paper shop and coffee bar in Sound Town and at night at the arena, cleaning, selling concessions, and taking tickets. Jarrett notices and admires Merry’s determination. But when the public catches wind of their budding relationship, some bold photos from Merry’s past come to light. Now, Jarrett must decide if he’ll let his image take precedence over his heart and cost him the chance at something perfectly real.

The steamy Sin City Gigolos romance series continues with Stiff Competition, the breathtaking, pulse-pounding second instalment. As a gigolo, Gage Adams has the perfect life: he gets all the sex he needs without caring about or committing to anyone or anything. When he meets his condo neighbour, Cassidy Hastings, and they instantly spark, he soon realises she may be the perfect woman for him: wanting no commitment and offering no judgments.

Marie Patrick concludes her evocative and poignant MacDermott Brothers western trilogy with A Kiss in the Sunlight. In order to win a coveted position on her father’s newspaper, Ryleigh Steele plans to write an in-depth story about Sheriff MacDermott and how he stopped the most notorious gang in Colorado. There’s just one problem—the enigmatic sheriff won’t talk about it. Sheriff Teague MacDermott’s life has been on hold since the Logan Gang rode through Paradise Falls, killing and wounding many in an attempt to break one of their own out of jail. So when a pushy journalist arrives and wants him to relive the most horrendous day of his life, he isn’t exactly happy at first. But as their feelings grow, Ryleigh will have to make a choice―the story or the Sheriff. She can’t have both. Or can she?
