Elizabeth was trapped in a tangle of postpartum depression and grief after the death of her beloved parents and she couldn’t quite see the way back to her husband and their two beautiful kids…until a car accident stole away her memories and changed her life.

51BIJD0MKDLCHRISTMAS NIGHTS ~ FREE

A holiday romance with a guaranteed HEA from USA Today Bestselling Author J.H. Croix! If you like smoking hot romance with alpha men and strong women, you’ll love this series!

Janie almost drowned when she met Travis. Way to impress a man.

When Janie Stevens gets fished out of the icy ocean, she doesn’t expect to fall for the man who saves her. Travis Wilkes is all kinds of man—firefighter, emergency responder and pure, raw masculinity. She’s completely unprepared for the fierce craving he kindles.

Travis is much too busy for love. He’s been honed by a life on the edge in Alaska. After he yanks Janie out of the freezing ocean waters, he can’t stop thinking about her. A man who doesn’t blink in the face of danger finds himself nearly brought to his knees by a feisty, stubborn woman.

Janie has zero interest in romance. The past taught her it isn’t worth it. But Travis makes it hard to remember the past.

The sparks flying between Janie and Travis are burning too fast for them to ignore. Hot nights, snowy days and Christmas just might convince Travis and Janie that love is possible.

51N+xOwyxaLFAIRYTALE ROMANCE

Debbie Macomber dazzles with delightful twists on three classic fairy tales in this enchanting ebook bundle: Beauty and the Beast in Some Kind of Wonderful, Snow White in Almost Paradise, and Cinderella in Cindy and the Prince.

SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL

Preschool teacher Judy Lovin doesn’t want anything to do with the family fortune. But with her father’s empire on the verge of collapse, Judy suddenly finds herself negotiating with John McFarland, a smart, rugged man who takes what he wants, and what he wants is Judy. Surprised by her attraction to him, Judy agrees to his terms: alone time with him at his island getaway, where she discovers that his rough edges soften in the magic of the moonlight—and John comes to believe in the one thing he convinced himself he could never have: love.

ALMOST PARADISE

A mountain cabin. A moonlit night. And not a stepmother around to spoil the moment. For Sherry White, this camp is almost paradise. With seven mischievous girls in her cabin, she barely has time to ogle the camp director, who may be the most gorgeous man Sherry’s ever met—and the most serious, too. When Jeff Roarke founded his camp for gifted children, he had a vision of rigorous self-improvement. But Sherry’s insistence that kids need to let loose and play—not to mention have a perfect kiss under the stars—is messing with his agenda, his head . . . and his heart.

CINDY AND THE PRINCE

Cindy Territo indulges in the occasional fantasy as she cleans offices to put herself through school. When she finds a discarded ticket to a company holiday party in the office of sexy corporate VP Thorne Prince, Cindy decides that every girl deserves to be treated like a princess at least once in her life. At the party, Thorne hadn’t planned to stay long, but he’s blown away by a dazzling mystery woman. As the clock strikes midnight, Thorne goes along with the charade, biding his time until the passion they share reveals the truth he knows deep down: He’s met the woman of his dreams.
