Once before, Lady Alice Winterbourne trusted her heart to an honorable, respectable man… only to be jilted in the scandal of the Season.

In the country, she hopes to find some peace from the embarrassment left in London… Unfortunately, she finds her former betrothed and his new bride in attendance.

Never love a lady…
Lord Rhys Brookfield has no interest in marriage. Ever. He’s worked quite hard at building both his fortune and his reputation as a rogue—and intends to enjoy all that they can offer him. That is if his match-making mother will stop pairing him with prospective brides. When Rhys and Alice meet, sparks flare. But with every new encounter, their first impressions of one another are challenged and an unlikely friendship is forged.

Desperate, Rhys proposes a pretend courtship, one meant to spite Alice’s former betrothed and prevent any matchmaking attempts toward Rhys. What neither expects is that a pretense can become so much more. Or that a burning passion can heal… and hurt.

They are together in a foreign country for a month and she can’t fight her attraction to him though she knows marriage can end devastatingly badly. After all, the only example she’s ever had is the abusive father who raised her and the weak mother who allowed it.

When they return home and Lance asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend for the holidays so his family will lay off trying to get him married, she can’t resist the temptation. She doesn’t want to spend another holiday alone.

But will Lexie forget that it’s all pretend as she is welcomed with open arms into the Anderson and Storm clan? Or will she manage to hold onto her convictions and walk away when the fantasy of being a part of a family and falling in love with a man is supposed to be over?

A FAMILY AFFAIR: THE RETURN

Magdalena, New York.

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…

She invented him!
At least she thought she had!

Kit told everyone about her fabulous five day cruise. Her days of fun in the sun and moonlit nights with the man of her dreams – Rafe Morgan – tall, handsome, incredibly sexy and successful. And well – now they were engaged!

There was just one 6’2″, 230 lb. problem –
Rafe Morgan did exist and he wanted answers.

Retired Navy SEAL and Texas business tycoon, Rafe Morgan was sure he was being set up by his suddenly acquired fiancee.

He had spent 20 years in the Navy and was trained to handle anything – until he came up against one volatile New York redhead with wicked curves and the world’s hardest ass!

Then he saw her sex lair and was more than willing to be Caught in a Trap. And to set one of his own!

She believes in love, second chances, and happily ever after. He believes in keeping a safe distance from anything that resembles an emotion. Indeed, they have nothing in common but an undeniable desire for one another they can’t ignore, and an ailing “father” who will employ any means to bring them together.
Unfortunately, not everyone wishes to see a union between Francie and Alexander, and they will stop at nothing to keep this couple apart.
