When Charles Morton brings his very sick niece in right at closing time, Dustin’s care starts trouble with his boss, but touches Charles’s bruised heart.

Charles is nearly frantic when his niece becomes ill. He’s had custody of Anna for only six months, following her parents’ sudden death, and he might be in over his head.

Dealing with a new job and town, along with becoming a parent, is almost more than he can handle.

Charles and Dustin meet again at a friend’s party, with heated attraction drawing them closer. One dinner leads to a date, with chemistry building by the second. But Charles’s mother, who feels Anna should be left in her care, and Dustin’s boss, who decides their relationship isn’t up to the family image of the practice, form an unlikely alliance that threatens to pull their budding relationship apart. While alone, they are vulnerable, together they might just get everything they desire.

A heart can only take so much.

Delilah Reily was a broken soul. The only person keeping her pushing forward is her daughter, Olive. She returned to her family home. A place that holds so many memories, some good and some bad. It was now time to mend fences while also trying to fix a beyond repairable heart.

Sebastian King, Formula One racer, was a single father. He met Delilah on the worst day of his life. A day he’d never forget. A day that left him raising a five-year-old and a newborn—it seemed things had gotten a whole lot more complicated. After a year of healing and being unable to continue with his career as a race driver, he decided it was best to be with his girls. Without any plans in place, he booked a holiday at Rose Ridge Ranch and left the following day.

Sebastian never thought he’d see Delilah again. But fate had other plans. Sometimes love needs a kickstart with a horseback ride.

Rose Ridge Ranch is a place for the broken to be mended. The special to blend in. Love to be found in the most unlikely places. The heart to find a home.

Can Sebastian and Delilah help each other overcome the things that hold them back?

Title: WET
Series: Westbrook Elite #1
Author: Cambria Hebert
Genre: College Sports Romance
Release Date: July 12, 2022


BLURB

Making decisions I regret is basically a hobby.
So I guess it really wasn’t that surprising when I went out on a date with an Elite.
And then he tried to assault me.
I might be small, but I’m not meek. I fought him off… then went straight to the dean.
He didn’t believe me. No one does.
And now my date from hell is in revenge mode, and I somehow end up in the campus pool.
Did I mention I can’t swim?
Lucky for me, a knight in shining armor saves me from drowning.
Except he’s not wearing shining armor. He’s naked.
And he’s also Elite.
Seriously, what is up with these Elite swimmers?
Of course, I have no intention of ever seeing his very good-looking, naked highness again.
Elite obviously can’t be trusted.
Until he wraps me in his hoodie and promises to believe me.
Now I’m drowning again—but this time in his enigmatic cobalt eyes and addictive touch.
My only oxygen is him. I think I maybe could fall in love.
But will he keep his promise when I tell him the truth about his teammate?
Or will trusting Ryan with my heart and my life be just another decision to regret?

EXCERPT

“Aurora Coin, who goes by Rory but hates it when I call her that, so I call her Carrot, which she says she also hates but really secretly loves.”
I rolled my eyes. Why is he so charming?
“Who is also really good with a camera, grew up in Chicago, acts like a rottweiler even though she’s a chihuahua, uses all my shampoo, and insults my Jeep and my clothes.”
“Are you trying to ask me out or make a bullet point presentation?” I wondered.
He mock-gasped, pressing a hand to his chest. “I’m being romantic.”
“Some of these things sound like insults,” I pointed out.
He chuckled, and damn, if it didn’t make my stomach flutter. Shuffling forward, he reached for my hand, entwining our fingers. “But they’re not. They’re just some of the reasons I want you. You and only you. Be my girlfriend. My only.”

Collins Attwood

My parents are dead.
My brother, Lucas, has been shot.
Our world has crumbled down around us, and we have nowhere to go.
For the last year, my brother and I have been on the run hiding from whoever killed our parents. The details are spotty, but Lucas thinks our father stole money from the mob and the day our parents were killed is the same day they came to collect.
I don't want to believe him, but I don't have a choice. We're running out of time and money. If I don't find us a place to lie low for longer than a month or two, we're as good as dead, too. Or we would be if I hadn't stumbled upon a want ad: TUTOR NEEDED.
I didn't do too bad in college. How hard could it be?

Miceli Daidone

Being the head of the Daidone Family comes with its inherent risks and there are certain aspects of my life I won't chance.
Ever again.
My daughter, Rocca, is the spitting image of her mother. Every day I am reminded of how, in a single instant, I failed my family.
When Collins Attwood enters my life, I know she's carrying a burden someone so young shouldn't be. I also know her real identity. There's a bounty on her and her brother's head.
Why? The syndicate of families won't say—which is troubling.
Asking Collins is a non-starter as well.
Each day she's in my home, the attraction between us grows harder to ignore. The need to protect her overrules my rationale, making me vulnerable. In order to defend her, I have to earn her trust. Unfortunately, faith doesn't come easy for someone like me.
For all I know, this could be a trap.
I've been given a second chance at love, but in order to open my heart again, I have to know the truth.
They say love is blind.
I suspect it might also be stupid.

Mafia Manipulator is a dark mafia/age gap/enemies to lovers romance inspired by Park Avenue Player.
