Simon has a mission of his own.

Saints and Sinners by T.S. Sharp
For the longest time, I thought I was a saint. I did everything by the book. I lived only for and by the rules. I lived my life the exact way people thought I should. There was no way to tell the difference between what I wanted and what everyone else did. I did not realize the shell I was until he came along.
He was everything I was not. The very thing I was taught from the beginning of my existence to run from. The first time I saw him, I knew I should stay far away because he was a sinner. You could see it written all over him that he was the exact opposite of the kind of person I should be seen with.
I could sense it from miles away. You know that thing about seeing the aura surrounding people? I did not exactly believe in seeing auras as colors until I walked in and saw him. A sort of red halo surrounded his whole existence.
Red. I should have known.
This man had an air of danger about him that should have warned me off. He did not live by any rules; instead, he made his own. I tried my best not to get caught up in his orbit, but no matter how hard I tried, I was hooked from the moment he looked my way.
She was heaven personified and from the instant I saw her I could think of nothing but dirtying her up. I opened up my world to her hoping she would recognize her true self. I thought I would change her so she could rule by my side. Somehow, though, she ended up changing me just as much. Our story isn't squeaky clean; it’s a story of a saint and a sinner realizing they are just two sides of the same coin. We complete each other, but will that be enough for the outside world?
The Bride, the Baby and the Best Man by Liz Fielding
What do you when, three weeks from your wedding, a blackmailing aunt leaves you holding the baby?
Faith Bridges should be wedding dress shopping with her bridesmaids, finalising the menu for the reception, house hunting. Instead she's up close and personal with Harry March - the last man on earth she’d trust with her heart - a fractious baby and a four year old diva.
She and Julian may not have had the most conventional of courtships but he’s wise, responsible and utterly dependable. The exact opposite of Harry, who thinks that all he has to do to get her to stay and take care of his sister's children is to tease her, charm her and, when that doesn’t work, make love to her.
It won't work; Faith knows that love is like meringue—all sugar and air, and about as substantial. And she has made a promise that she isn’t about to break. So why does she find it so hard to walk away?
