COUNTERFEIT BOYFRIEND BY CINDI MADSEN

 

 

Release DateJune 25, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

My twin brother’s talked me into a lot of crazy things, but taking his place on a road trip with his girlfriend so he can party with his friends is a whole new level of insanity. What’s even more insane is I somehow find myself agreeing to it—thanks, alcohol, guilt, and bribery. I’m determined to undo the arrangement, but then I meet Gwen, this sexy redheaded hurricane of energy and brains.

 

And then she kisses me. Just like that, I’m driving her up the coast, on our way to a wedding with a mess of complications. With each hour and each stop, I’m falling harder and harder for a woman who doesn’t know my actual name.

 

I’m trying to do the right thing. Or the lesser of the wrong things. All my life I’ve had to clean up my brother’s messes, but for the first time ever, I’ve landed the upper hand in one of our switcheroo schemes. Now I’ve just got to come clean and convince Gwen that I’m the brother she should be with.

Release DateJune 25, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

If Mary Babington-Smith knows nothing else, it's that Lord Edwin Sutton kissed her. Regardless of who-kissed-whom, with the deed witnessed, they have no choice but to carry on with a temporary, fake, engagement. When Edwin sweetens the deal, offering Mary the money she needs to pursue her independence if she can play the lovesick fiancée for two weeks, Mary rises to the challenge. In two weeks, she'll have everything she wants, and this time she'll be the one to walk out of his life.

Despite Sutton's argumentative, self-assured nature, when Mary glimpses a sliver of the boy he used to be, she vows to peel away every layer of armor he uses to shield his emotions. Somewhere underneath that worldly exterior is the kind-hearted man she once loved, but in order to find him, she'll have to give him the power to hurt her...and he's already broken her trust once...

How to Fall for the Wrong Man (Ladies of Passion, #3)How to Fall for the Wrong Man by Harmony Williams

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Harmony Williams pulled me into the masquerade. How to Fall for the Wrong Man should be called Mistakes Made when you Land The Right One. Edwin and Mary have gotten so used to playing their parts, their heart's have gotten lost in the shuffle. In her quest for independence, Mary ignores her feelings. Edwin wears his on his sleeve, yet doesn't fully understand them. Williams makes historical a modern treat with her lovable, clueless characters and her stories of enchanting love.

Andrew may have survived a shipwreck to find fame and fortune at sea, but he never fully healed after Lavinia’s abandonment. Instead, he dedicated himself to the navy—and secret missions for the foreign office. Nearing retirement and back on British soil, he’s given a new assignment—infiltrate the home of a wealthy banker who’s suspected of being behind a plan to assassinate the Prince of Wales. But to do that, Andrew must recruit and turn the woman the banker once wooed: Lavinia Parkem.

Unable to shirk his duties, Andrew begrudgingly uses the influence of successful matchmaker of Edinburgh to convince the now-widowed Lavinia to help him take down his mark. She relents, telling herself that Andrew’s no longer the warm, loving young man she once knew. But the more time she spends with him, the harder it is to pretend there’s no longer any attraction there. And it’s tormenting Andrew that he must ask her to put herself in more and more danger and now, he must decide whether his duty to queen and country is worth risking the life of the woman he never stopped loving.

New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s novel of dangerous secrets, dark pasts, and sizzling heat.

 

No one would guess that dedicated teacher Arden Forbes is a billionaire. His profession gives him a purpose that wealth alone can’t provide.

And Arden is eager to supply it. But what he wants most is to unearth the mysteries that surround her.

As the threats escalate, Keera fears that everything she’s been running from is closing in, and there’s only one man to trust. But will the truth drive Arden away…or will it bring the two closer than ever before?

DRIFTWOOD CREEK (SUNSET BAY) BY ROXANNE SNOPEK

 

 

 

Release DateJune 26, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Nestled among the forests and coves that dot the Oregon coast, Sanctuary Ranch is a home for strays--both human and animal--and the starting off point for second chances . . .
 
After aging out of the California foster care system, Jamie Vaughn found her place in the world at Sanctuary Ranch in Sunset Bay. But other lost souls are not so lucky, so she's made it her mission to rescue those that cross her path--like the injured pup she just found. The man he belongs to is obviously an unfit owner, so she's just going to ignore the address on the dog's tag. She has more important things on her mind, like roping her handsome coworker, Gideon, out of the friend zone and into helping her . . .
 
Head wrangler Gideon Low knows that Jamie's bark is worse than her bite, despite her rough exterior. In fact, he's determined to protect her from her too-tender heart, even if it means returning the not-so-homeless puppy--and putting some distance between them. But sooner or later, Gideon's best intentions will turn on him. And he'll learn that he's not the only one with secrets--and that the love of your life can be right under your nose . . .

REVIEWDRIFTWOOD CREEK (SUNSET BAY) BY ROXANNE SNOPEK

 

Driftwood Creek (Sunset Bay #2)Driftwood Creek by Roxanne Snopek

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Driftwood Creek can be described in many ways. I choose to look at it as a tale of inspiration trapped in a world that is not always kind. Jamie and Gideon are dreamers learning how to dream. Their pain runs deep inside of battered and bruised souls. Despite the heartache, each needs someone to help heal all their broken parts. The tragedy will be, if they never try. Snopek taps into the still waters of a heart and bleeds them dry, before replenishing the human spirit with her emotional reads.

ANYTHING FOR LOVE (THE BRADENS & THE MONTGOMERYS; PLEASANT HILL - OAK FALLS) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 

 

Release DateJune 27, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 
Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens.

Fall in love with Beau Braden and Charlotte Sterling in ANYTHING FOR LOVE. 

After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue—even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates—until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.

Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible. 

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa's Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

REVIEWANYTHING FOR LOVE (THE BRADENS & THE MONTGOMERYS; PLEASANT HILL - OAK FALLS) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

Anything for Love (The Bradens & Montgomerys [Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls], #2)Anything for Love by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Love is an art. It begins with a blank canvas and emotions are the colors that create the pictures. Anything But Love is like a photo album. Memories are abundant, but at times become askew. What the mind leads us to believe is not always rooted in truth, but built up by pain. Sometimes it takes a pair of fresh eyes to point us in the right direction. Charlotte and Beau are that new beginning. That fresh perspective. He's a fixer upper, waiting to be restored. She's that lonely heart, waiting to be healed. The heartache is just a stepping stone to point them in the right direction. The depth of a Melissa Foster story never ceases to amaze me. There's always a lesson waiting to be discovered.
