51RmoDQAWFLTHIS PIECE OF MY HEART

She wasn’t looking for love.

Struggling to live up to the high expectations of overprotective parents and a hefty family name, Caryn Stevens only wants one summer of fun before she focuses on finishing her college degree. She knows her destiny—to lead her dad’s multi-million dollar business. But that plan changes forever the day she runs into—literally—sexy and single professional hockey player, Andrew Chadwick.

But love came looking for her.

Sparks instantly fly between the two, and Caryn can’t resist his charms as she discovers that Andrew has a reputation of winning – both on and off the ice. One of the most eligible singles in Toronto, Andrew could have any woman he wants, and he’s got Caryn in sights. But, when Caryn’s parents disapprove of the match and threaten to disinherit her and his hockey team trades him to a new city, it may take more than love for the couple to survive this penalty play.

When you’re at the top, there’s nowhere to go but down.

Two talented skaters. Two bright futures. Two shining stars. One ruined by a career-ending scandal and another by a father’s ruthless ambition.

Marina Sanders was the darling of the winter games, winning a bronze in figure skating one week after losing both parents in a car accident. Four years later, she was the most hated woman in America.

Drew Delacorte was the future of the Sockeyes hockey team, crowned the best young player in the league and heir-apparent to the hockey throne once occupied by his father. Only Drew doesn’t want that throne. Despite being in the prime of his career, he’s considering hanging up his skates.

Together they’re fire and ice, and when things get that hot, they melt. Can these two broken souls find comfort and courage in each other’s arms or will they find only pain and regret?

pro_pbid_3656571 (1)A FAMILY AFFAIR: THE RETURN

#BARGAIN 

Home of memories long buried, steamy nights, and one regrettable summer…

Grace Romano had been seventeen, impressionable, innocent to the power of attraction and desire.
Max Ruhland taught her about both. He loved Grace and thought they had a future together, until she crushed his heart and told him he wasn’t part of her life plan.

Twenty-two years later, Grace Romano Clarke is a widow with two children and a pile of broken dreams. When her aunt dies, she must return to Magdalena, the town she’d rather forget, to honor the woman’s last wishes: stay in her house for thirty days, and complete a list that, according to her aunt, will reveal a bit about life and maybe reveal something about herself, too. What Grace doesn’t know but will find out soon enough is that Max Ruhland must stay in the house with her and help complete the list!

Max Ruhland isn’t the same lovesick puppy from the wrong side of the tracks who had his heart broken all those years ago. He’s a wealthy, successful businessman who owes his good fortune to Grace’s aunt, the woman who never gave up on him. Max can have any woman he wants, but he’s never forgotten Grace, or how she hurt him. Now he’ll have to spend the next thirty days with her—in close quarters—to honor her aunt’s last wishes, and he’s not looking forward to it.

It’s going to get very interesting as the town watches and wonders what’s going on between those two. Of course, Pop Benito understands exactly what’s happening in the house on Bayberry Street, even if Max and Grace don’t. He’s the one who helped Grace’s aunt create the thirty-day list, which he insists will finally get this couple their happily-ever-after!

Are you wondering how Pete Finnegan and Elissa Cerdi’s Christmas wedding plans are progressing? Well, they aren’t progressing. Seems some people in town can’t forgive Elissa for partnering with Gloria Blacksworth, and they’re determined to shred her reputation. Plus, Elissa is suffering from a case of mistrust every time a woman talks to her fiancé, and that’s driving Pete crazy. They better figure things out quick, or Elissa won’t be walking down the aisle…

See you in Magdalena!

A crippled boy, an unhappy girl, a cuddly puppy and a Christmas romance!

Being a single mom who has to work, his request would certainly solve the problem of where her son could be educated until the New Year. But can she let her boy spend weeks with this dysfunctional family?

Chris finally gets custody of his daughter to find out that she hates the very sight of him. How can a man break through those barriers? Could the boy help – him and his new puppy… and the smart, beautiful woman he calls Mom?

DARE THE DEVIL

SAVE A HORSE – RIDE THIS DEVIL OF A COWBOY!

Welcome to Glacier Country! Luthor Devlin and his ranch hands were out tracking 20th century rustlers when they stepped into a time warp!

There on the jagged cliffs was a woolly mammoth, a sabre-toothed tiger and her – a tawny, near-naked savage. She was a primal fantasy come true – that left him stunned!

His gaze was locked onto hers. “I’d really appreciate an explanation of all this. You, the hairy elephant, and the cat with the overbite are not the norm in Montana. And I know you can understand my every word. So anytime you’d like to begin.”

Her relaxed appraisal hadn’t gone unnoticed by either the man or the large tiger. The latter proved her undoing. His mouth opened not to snarl again but to emit a long, loud, kittenish yawn. The tiger rolled over, rubbed his back and shoulders into the ground, his hind legs spread-eagle, yawned again, and pawed sleepily at his face. To the amazement of everyone, his sword-like teeth fell out.

“Damn it, Pumpkin, why couldn’t you have just growled!” She extended her hand. “Cam Stirling, action technician.” At his confused expression, she sighed. “Stunt woman.”

She was wild, irresistible – and he was the man to tame her. She dared the devil every day – why not Luthor Devlin!
