Sweet Heat at Bayside (Sweet with Heat: Bayside Summers #3)

 

 

SWEET WITH HEAT AT BAYSIDE (SWEET WITH HEAT: BAYSIDE SUMMERS) BY ADDISON COLE

 

 

 

Release Date: August 8, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod. Bayside Summers is a series of standalone romance novels featuring fiercely loyal heroes and sassy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, and easy to relate to.

Drake Savage has always done the right thing, especially where beautiful and fiercely determined Serena Mallery is concerned—even when it means keeping his feelings for her to himself. Serena has always wanted more than what their small town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts has to offer, and Drake’s roots are so deeply entrenched in the Cape, it’s all he can do to watch her pack up her life and move away.

Serena has always had big dreams. As a teenager she dreamed of becoming an interior designer and marrying smart, musically inclined, sexy-as-sin Drake Savage. Now she’s finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he’s never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on.

A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they’ve both been aching to walk. But Serena’s determined not to give up her shot at the career she’s always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily ever after?

Sweet with Heat books are the sweet editions of the Love in Bloom steamy romance novels by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster, written under her sweet-romance pen name, Addison Cole. Sweet with Heat books are significantly the same story as the steamy editions and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

Fall in LOVE IN THE VINEYARDS where happily-ever-afters are guaranteed.

Firefighter extraordinaire Shae Hayes is determined to evacuate Santino Winery. 
Strong and proud, from a long line of heroes, she’s not taking no for answer—even if it is from Napa Valley’s own Mr. Charming. The devastatingly handsome sweet- talker is the only man who turns her insides to jelly. 
When the wind changes and Engine 6 is stationed at Santino Winery, Shae and Michael begin to melt in close quarters, and their chemistry ignites. 
Is it the firestorm outside or the flames smoldering in their hearts going up in flames? 
They’ll soon have to decide if their LOVE IS A WILDFIRE

DOWN WITH LOVE (LAWS OF ATTRACTION) BY KATE MEADER

 

 

 

Release Date: August 7, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Sparks fly when the hot-shot divorce lawyer meets the high-powered wedding planner. The only question is, what kind?

If you ever get married, remember my name: Max Henderson. In my line of work, you acquire a certain perspective on supposedly everlasting unions. . . .

1. Pre-nups are your friend. 
2. The person you married is not the person you’re divorcing. 
3. And I hope you didn’t spend much on the wedding because that was one helluva waste of hard-earned cash, wasn’t it? 

But some guys are willing to take a chance. Like my brother, who thinks he’s going to ride off into the sunset with the woman of his dreams in a haze of glitter on unicorns. And the wedding planner—the green-eyed beauty who makes a living convincing suckers to shell out thousands of dollars on centerpieces—is raking it in on this matrimonial monstrosity. 

The thing is, Charlie Love is not unlike me. We’re both cogs in the wedding-industrial complex. As the best man, I know her game—and I can play it better than her. But after one scorching, unexpected kiss, I’m thinking I might just want to get played.

SYNOPSIS

 

Hunter

When my business partner asked me to do him a favor, I had no idea he was sending me on a blind date his mother arranged for him. I walked in the bar, saw the woman drinking her third martini, and knew I was in for an eventful night.

 

After the unexpected second date, she didn't know my real name or who I really was. By that time, the lie was too far gone, and I wanted her too much to admit the truth.

 

 

Laney

 

It's not every day you find out your ex-boyfriend is engaged.

 

I shouldn't have agreed to the blind date. My mother insisted, and I wasn’t in any position to turn down a night out.

 

I will admit, I definitely shouldn't have ordered that fourth martini before said blind date even arrived.

 

The man turned out to be swoon worthy, handsome, condescending—a perfect distraction. Then I found out he was a liar.

 

I've never been in over my head to this degree.

Then again, I've never been in love.

Bedded Under the Christmastide MoonBedded Under the Christmastide Moon by Christina McKnight

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


One word has the power to upset the course of everything we hold dear. The fact that so much emotion resides with a four letter word is hard to believe, but so very true. Love is a word we all know, and emotion we all feel, but still find hard to understand. Bedded Under the Christmastide Moon is a steamy tale of misunderstandings, broken hearts and second chances. Brigham and Mellie are at the precipice of happiness and heartache, but too afraid to tumble into the abyss. Will they open their eyes and listen to their hearts or will they give up before it gets too real? At the core of a Christina McKnight tale are feelings. Whether we love, hurt, fall down or get back up, we have a reaction to the experience. McKnight knows how to get a reaction.

SYNOPSIS

 

Finding a worthy husband should be simple for three beautiful debutantes in Regency London. But the Somerset sisters have a way of making it delightfully complicated . . .

 

Violet Somerset has always preferred a library to a ballroom, but to please her grandmother she agreed to one London season. With nothing to show for it but heartbreak, she’s reconciled to spinsterhood. Until a notorious rogue known as the Devil of Dare requests an introduction to her timid, gentle youngest sister, Hyacinth. Violet will do anything to stop the match—even if it means posing as Hyacinth herself . . .

 

Nicholas Balfour, the Earl of Dare, is enjoying the life of a rake far too much to take a wife. But he must keep his promise to his grandmother. He’ll simply choose the meekest bride he can find, install her at his estate, then carry on as before. Hyacinth sounds perfect—until he discovers that her sweet demeanor hides the tongue of a viper and the mind of a bluestocking . . .

 

As Violet’s ruse threatens to unravel, however, she may find the tables turned. Soon she may have no choice but to tolerate her handsome fiancée—or fall in love with him . . .

Release Date: August 7, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell pits a fiercely independent beauty against a devilish investigator.

Set apart by her ethereal beauty and fearless demeanor, Ophelia Killoran has always been a mystery to those around her—and a woman they underestimated. No one would guess that she spends her nights protecting the street urchins of St. Giles. Ophelia knows what horrors these children face. As a young girl, she faced those horrors herself, and she would have died…if not for the orphan boy who saved her life.

A notorious investigator, Connor Steele never expected to encounter Ophelia Killoran on his latest case. It has been years since he sacrificed himself for her. Now, she hires orphans from the street to work in her brother's gaming hell. But where does she find the children…and what are her intentions?

Ophelia and Connor are at odds. After all, Connor now serves the nobility, and that is a class of people Ophelia knows firsthand not to trust. But if they can set aside their misgivings and work together, they may discover that their purposes—and their hearts—are perfectly aligned.
