Stark International Trilogy by J. Kenner
Start With: Say My Name
New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner kicks off a smoking hot, emotionally compelling new trilogy that returns to the world of her beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me. Say My Name features Jackson Steele, a strong-willed man who goes after what he wants, and Sylvia Brooks, a disciplined woman who’s hard to get — and exactly who Jackson needs.
Why you’ll love it: Revenge, passion, and secrets make Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks’s romance unforgettable, as they meet five years after a brief affair that changed both their worlds.
Start With: Fixed on You
Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out–move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan.
But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away, except Hudson’s fixed his sights on her.
Why you’ll love it: Alayna’s very aware she shouldn’t get mixed up with the man who just bought the club she bartends at— so of course we love it when she does.
Start With: This Man
Young interior designer Ava O’Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward — a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn’t want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can’t control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.
Why you’ll love it: A British billionaire, a beautiful mansion, and hot games of cat-and-mouse will keep you glued to the page.
