For Morgan, he hopes the goodbye he says to Chris won’t be forever.
In The Shadows by Hailey Turner
Take a chance.
Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin doesn’t trust easily, and he most certainly doesn’t trust spies. He’ll work with them if ordered to, but that doesn’t mean he has to like it. Except Agent Sean Delaney is proving to be the exception to the rule. There’s something about Sean that gets under Alexei’s skin and won’t let go. Alexei would be lying if he said he wasn’t interested in what lay beneath the agent’s mask. When they’re assigned together for a mission, Alexei vows to keep Sean safe all while trying to coax the hot agent into his bed.
Hold onto hope.
Agent Sean Delaney has spent his entire adult life living a lie for his country. When the MDF tasks him with finding evidence of criminal wrong-doing against the owner of a private military company, Sean knows exactly how to play the game to get what he wants. He just doesn’t know how to handle Alexei’s advances, nor his own attraction to the younger soldier. Being a spy is lonely work, and Sean knows he should keep his distance, but saying no to Alexei is impossible from the moment they first kiss.
In a world of lies, the truth can be deadly.
When the mission takes a turn for the worse, the only thing left to do is run. In the wake of betrayal, and in the path of danger, can their fragile trust survive the battle?

Written Stars by Magnolia Robbins
“The stars don’t hold our destiny, our destiny is what holds the stars.”
Megan Riley has always been all work and no play, a mindset that helped her become a successful defense attorney in Portland. With a recognizable name, more money than she knew what to do with and an adoring sister, her life looked like the picture of perfection. Yet all the money in the world couldn’t rid Megan of the idea that she was destined for something more. And it wouldn’t solve the nagging feelings she grappled with about her sexuality.
Eccentric Olivia Ellis was an insecure and struggling author trying to make ends meet. A big believer in destiny, she knew something waited just around the corner for her.
When Megan and Olivia meet by chance at a historic book store, they find themselves eyeing the same unique book – and each other. Neither could deny the instant attraction they felt. After a magical night together, Megan finds herself a lot less confused about her sexuality. Olivia, who struggled with her fears of commitment, decided if their meeting was “written in the stars”, they’d run into each other once more.
Will fate bring Olivia and Megan together again?
