 So much could change in a moment; a lot can change in five years. 

“Five years. That’s how long it’s been since I’ve seen Jared. Five years to the day since I was dragged from his arms kicking and screaming. Now, after years of putting my life back together, I must face my abusers. But having a chance to see Jared again makes it all worthwhile.”

After the Fire 

By Will Hill

The things I've seen are burned into me, like scars that refuse to fade.

Before, she lived inside the fence. Before, she was never allowed to leave the property, never allowed to talk to Outsiders, never allowed to speak her mind. Because Father John controlled everything—and Father John liked rules. Disobeying Father John came with terrible consequences.

But there are lies behind Father John's words. Outside, there are different truths.

Then came the fire.

Bunt
(Minnesota Moose #1)
 

By JC Thompson

Zoe Parks learned the hard way that nothing sticks the first time. Everybody is always looking for the next best thing. That's how Zoe knew minutes before she was supposed to be married that the first engagement was all wrong. If the first engagement isn't right, how can the first marriage, especially if it happens when you're on what was supposed to be your honeymoon?

Alex Pedroza knows that being the new guy on the team means putting up with whatever the guys dish out. That's why Alex can't go home without the wife he thought he was going to have when he returns from the offseason. Can he convince the woman he married while trying to forget the one he didn't to come home and play the part just until the divorce is final, of course?
