ROMANTIC PICKS #FALLINLOVE #READAROMANCE

Sometimes, love happens when we least expect it…

NHL defenseman Roy Donaldson lives for the game. When an ex-girlfriend/stalker causes trouble for the team, Roy gets benched.
And the only way he can return to the rotation…? Accept help from sassy, sexy PA Patience Kennedy.

Patience is one step away from a junior partnership as a personal assistant– all she needs to do is restore a sullen, annoying, attractive hockey player’s image.

Shouldn’t be too hard, right?

A delightful mixture of women’s fiction, suspense, romantic comedy, and mystery, The Player has something for every reader.

Waking up each day is a gift….

On her 21st birthday, someone slipped a potent drug combination into socialite Aurora Brightwell’s champagne putting her in a coma for the next ten years. It’s been a long road back, and it’s time to reclaim the life she lost and find out exactly what happened on that fateful night.

Financier Kincade Enright has his own reason for helping Aurora discover who poisoned her, but for the time being he’s keeping that – and his true identity – to himself. What he can’t keep hidden though, are his growing feelings for the one-time paparazzi darling and party-girl.

When this prince of finance joins forces with the former sleeping beauty, nothing can stop them from finding the answers they seek…or prevent the powerful emotions developing between them as they search for the truth.

As the wild child of the family, Bellani Maxwell isn’t interested in settling down. Between a fledgling party crashing business, teaching self-defense at a martial arts studio, and hitting the bar every night, she has her hands full. She doesn’t need the added responsibility or commitment of a relationship.

Hockey star Cedric Pederson has all the puck bunnies he could ever want, but a chance encounter eighteen months ago leaves him with eyes only for the gorgeous, free-spirited Bella. Too bad she isn’t interested in what Cedric has to offer beyond frequent hookups, and he’s grown tired of their on-again, off-again non-relationship. He wants to be all-in or all-out.

When a brutal attack leaves Bella in need of comfort, protection, and healing, the only person she wants is Cedric. But once she’s living in his condo, Bella is confronted with a decision she’s been avoiding—can she finally commit to Cedric, or will she let him go one last time?

CONTENT WARNING: Contain graphic and potentially disturbing descriptions of an assault.

Clearing the Ice includes three best-selling hockey romance novels: This Piece of My Heart, This Piece of My Soul, and This Piece of Our Being.

“This story will grab you and will not let you go. It was emotionally charged and oh, so good. Caryn and Andrew’s second chance romance will hold you captive and make you believe in love again. The writing was great, the characters were great, and the plot was very enjoyable. This was one of the best books I have read in a while. This story embodied everything that is second chance, and the way the characters are makes this even more of a great love story. The trials they go through, the beauty of this story, the beauty. It is so worth reading.” Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty review.

This Piece of My Heart
She wasn’t looking for love. But, love came looking for her.

This Piece of My Soul
They believe love conquers all. Until it doesn’t.

This Piece of Our Being
She no longer believes that love conquers all. He questions his convictions. Alone, each faces an uncertain future. Fate, however, has other ideas.

The Clearing the Ice Trilogy follows the journey of pro hockey player Andrew Chadwick and coed Caryn Stevens as their very different worlds collide one beautiful summer day. From sweet first love to the realities of married life, Caryn grows from an innocent, sheltered coed to an independent, strong woman. Together, the couple faces every obstacle thrown their way…until a sudden and senseless accident threatens Andrew’s life and inexplicably drives a wedge between them. Shattered by the incident, paralyzed by fear, Caryn can’t provide the support Andrew needs. Distrust, fears, and secrets construct walls, while each makes choices that take them further apart. The path to reconciliation proves rocky and missteps costly.

Meet Nick–an ice cream peddling undercover-cop, Pete–a war correspondent trying to fulfill his Aunt’s last wishes, Crown Prince Eric who’s in a bind, and the feisty gals who grab their attention and capture their hearts. Three complete Contemporary Romance Novels in one Boxed Set.

THE ICE CREAM MAN: Divorcee Jenny Lake suspects the new ice cream man, Nick Barnett, is selling more than bompops off his truck. Nick suspects Jenny is more than the frazzled mom she portrays, as all evidence makes her suspect number one in his check-kiting case. Nick also knows a cop should never fall in love with his suspect.

ISN’T IT ROMANTIC: Childhood friends, Pete Cooper and Brooke Ferguson spent their evenings watching TV with Pete’s Aunt Mamie. Now Pete is a famous cable news anchor who earned his stripes in war zones, and Brooke watches Pete on the same old TV in the same small town. Then Aunt Mamie passes away, and Pete and Brooke must set out on a road trip to fulfill Mamie’s last wishes.

A PRINCE OF A GUY: When New Yorker Casey Phillips visits the tiny country of Moritania to see where her ancestors came from, she’s mistaken for a princess, and Crown Prince Eric von Lieberhaven insists that Casey—a dead ringer for the missing royal—step into the princess’s shoes until she can be freed.

BethWhen three best friends come together for their sorority sister’s tony wedding on New Year’s Eve, they make a vow at the stroke of midnight to get married within one year. As the three women embark on their search to find their soul mates, they navigate the full-contact sport known as being a SSBFDLA (successful, single, black, female dating in L.A.) and negotiate the shark-infested waters of making a name for themselves in Hollywood.

Can Trista, the hyper-driven celebrity agent, find the time to schedule a meaningful romance? Will Amaya, the sexy starlet, convince the married hip hop–label exec she has been seeing to leave his wife and slip a ring on her finger or will the NBA star steal her heart in the final seconds? After undergoing a complete makeover, will Vivian, the jaded gossip columnist, win back the father of her child?

Set against the seductive backdrop of money, power, and sex, The Vow follows these women as they discover that their desire to find a husband isn’t as important as finding themselves.

A fierce bounty hunter. An outlaw on the run. A love that transcends it all.
After three years on the run, the notorious bounty hunter Tyler Calhoun catches up with the elusive lady outlaw, Nicky Malloy. The intensity of their dislike for each other is only matched by the burgeoning passion they can’t control.
A loner by nature, a cold hard hunter by choice, Tyler fights his feelings for his prisoner the only way he knows how — by ignoring them. He’s not prepared for the depth of his feelings, or how hard it will be to hold her prisoner–so close and so far away. Pursued and hunted themselves, Nicky and Tyler are forced to turn to each other for aid, trust, and comfort as their journey progresses to an inevitable end.
Caught in a murky world of lies, they hold on to each other as they travel to Wyoming to confront the man that brought them together. Tyler has to decide if his love for Nicky is worth more than the bounty he was sent to find.

The Carrigans of Circle C Series- Book 3

Dani Carrigan has always relied on logic when making important life decisions, but when she discovers she’s pregnant – and that there’s a chance her baby may be born “not perfect”— logic lets her down.

It would help if the baby’s father would pop the question, but widowed father Adrian seems more interested in protecting his six-year-old daughter than committing to his new relationship with Dani.

The last time she felt this alone and scared was when she was 16 and her mother died, leaving Dani to raise her younger sisters with precious little help from her distant and disapproving rancher father. She felt so inadequate then, but is she any more prepared to be a mother now?

Support comes from an unlikely source. Dani always saw her next-door neighbour and friend, divorce attorney Elliot Gilmore, as a charming, handsome, playboy-type. But with each challenge she faces, from pregnancy, to delivery and beyond—Elliot reveals himself a better man than she ever guessed.

Is it possible that Elliot hasn’t been playing the field—but waiting for her?

Book 3 of Rose Pearson’s series of Standalone Regency Romance Stories, The Duke’s Daughters.

Jacintha Seaworth is wise, complex and watchful. A beautiful woman, she nevertheless prefers to sit out from the dances, preferring to watch people and their interactions.

She really couldn’t have chosen a childhood friend more different from her than Henry Musgrave, brother to family friend Claudia, and quite a social ladies’ man.

Now that Jacintha is the next daughter in line to fulfill her father’s wishes of seeing all of his daughters married before his illness takes him, it’s time for her to grow up and actually evaluate her feelings for Henry.

It’s true that Alexander Slate, naval captain and Earl of Highbury, is a much more suitable match, but Jacintha will never be able to deny that there is something there inside of her for Henry. For all his shortcomings, maybe, just maybe, he could become a changed man.

If only the path to love for at least one of the Seaworth daughters could be free of doubt or worry.
Somehow, it doesn’t even look like sweet and kind hearted Jacintha will be spared a dramatic and harrowing road to love.

A story of unexpected love against all odds in the world of Regency era England. “Rescued by an Earl” is the third book of the Duke’s Daughters Series by Rose Pearson. Each book can be treated as its own standalone romance story, and cliffhanger endings are always strictly avoided.
