Synopsis

"A don't-miss treat!" -- Rendezvous

ALMOST A BRIDE

Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she's returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family's ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.

Matty's up to something - Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he'll provide it, just as he has all her life. Doing what's best for Matty is second nature, and part of the cowboy code. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can't resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos.

Maybe - just maybe - his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.


Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.

View full details

Synopsis

** Voted Runner-Up in Family Drama 2013 in the SpaSpa Awards **



Prepare to be swept away by a heart-warming tale of family relationships and love

Three women. Three generations. Sacrifices for love…

Who is she really? Nicole is about to find out as she searches for her real mother; the woman who gave her away at birth. With her marriage in tatters, she sets out from England: travelling to Spain, Jersey and Guernsey before the extraordinary story of her real family is finally revealed.

Nicole becomes an unwitting catalyst for change in the family. Two women are forced to reveal long-buried secrets. One going back as far as the Second World War. Lives are transformed as choices have to be made and the past laid to rest…

This contemporary romantic drama is the second of The Guernsey Novels, a series of stand-alone books by the award-winning author Anne Allen. It is likely to appeal to lovers of the works of Joanna Trollope and Maeve Binchy.

"A sensitive, heart-felt novel about family relationships, identity, adoption, second chances at love… With romance, weddings, boat trips, lovely gardens and more, Finding Mother is a dazzle of a book, a perfect holiday read." Lindsay Townsend, author of The Snow Bride



"I first encountered Anne Allen when I read Dangerous Waters: Mystery, Loss and Love on the Island of Guernsey and if you've read that book you'll notice a glancing reference to Jeanne, the heroine, in Finding Mother. I felt nicely grounded! In much the same way that Allen wormed Jeanne into my heart I really found that I cared for Nicole and willing her on to make the right decisions and a success of her life. Allen has a real talent for her female characters. The men don't come off the page quite as well, but that's a minor quibble.

Tracing a birth parent when you've been adopted is a sensitive subject and Allen handles it well, recognising the insecurities of the adopting parents who wonder if they're going to be supplanted and the worries of the mother who gave up the child soon after her birth. Will she be judged for her relationship with the child's father and for the fact that she made no attempt to bring the child up herself? There's an added complication here in that Nicole will also find out about her birth father - giving her more parents than any girl should decently want! It's neatly, elegantly done and the story is a real page turner." The Bookbag ****

The Wedding Series

Book 1 - Prelude to a Wedding
Book 2 - Wedding Party
Book 3 - Grady's Wedding
Book 4 - The Runaway Bride
Book 5 - The Christmas Princess
Book 6 - The Surprise Princess
Book 7 - The Forgotten Prince

In the romantic comedy Prelude to a Wedding, charming Paul Monroe has the Peter Pan thing down pat. As an antique toy appraiser, even his work involves play. Which is fine, unless your job is to keep his Chicago business running smoothly and all that charm - and sexiness - is aimed at you.

Organization and reliability are Bette Wharton's hallmarks. She handles the toughest clients with aplomb, until Paul provides a challenge that goes way beyond the office. She has a plan and a timetable and office romance -- especially with this man who even makes the workplace fun -- is definitely not part of it. How can she let herself fall for Mr. Live-for-the-Moment if all he offers is Love-for-the-Moment?

... Paul is the first of the grooms to watch his bride walk down the aisle toward him, but he won't be the last! Find their stories in WEDDING PARTY and GRADY'S WEDDING ... and the newest release, THE FORGOTTEN PRINCE, a new sequel to the Wedding Series.

Synopsis

Growing up in a mentally abusive household was never fun, but then I married a Walter Mitty character who took me to Africa and into some ridiculous and dangerous situations! To survive, I worked 24/7. I taught children, ran the worst riding school in the world, bred pet animals, announced on radio, lived on a boat and brought up two children of my own. On the lighter side, I hosted a royal occasion, met heads of state, interviewed Nelson Mandela and shook hands with Prince Charles. Much to my amazement I 'fell' into the media, first writing for radio and television, then directing, and eventually I ran my own video production company and won several awards. However, throughout all this, my mother lurked in the background, always there to remind me what a failure I was. The only thing that saved me from admittance to the nearest mental home was an unfailing sense of humour.

The reader will enjoy the vivid descriptions as well as a window into the plight of those struggling to survive where basic necessities may not be available. The adventure includes meeting a future Prime Minister, a missing baby, and many other surprises.


The medical mystery in Children of Dreams was featured on Animal Planet's "Monsters Inside Me," in the episode of "Shapeshifters."

Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she’s returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family’s ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.

Matty’s up to something – Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he’ll provide it. Doing what’s best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can’t resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos -- a kiss as fiery as the flame-red Indian Paintbrush that's always reminded him of Matty.

Maybe – just maybe – his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.

MATCH MADE IN WYOMING
When fire ravages Wyoming land, fireweed is among the first plants to return, brightening the blighted area with the joy of its blooms. Can Taylor Anne Larsen pull off a similar miracle for the pain-ravaged heart and disbelieving soul of ranch foreman Cal Ruskoff? Armed with the same grace and grit as the wildflower fireweed, Taylor also has allies – a matchmaking friend, the Wyoming winter, high-octane mutual attraction, and a rescued puppy who slips past Cal's defenses.

Cal might give in to passion temporarily, but from behind the wall he's built around his past and his secrets, he's certain Taylor is all that he can't let himself have. And he'll use all his weapons to keep her out.

"Melt your heart romance" -- Old Book Barn Gazette

Wyoming Wildflowers -- Book 2 -- Fireweed

When fire ravages Wyoming land, fireweed is among the first plants to return, brightening the blighted area with the joy of its blooms. Small-town lawyer Taylor Anne Larsen faces the challenge of doing the same for the pain-ravaged heart and disbelieving soul of ranch foreman Cal Ruskoff. Armed with the same grace and grit as the wildflower fireweed, Taylor also has allies – a matchmaking friend, a harsh western blizzard, high-octane mutual attraction, and a rescued puppy who slips past the defenses of this tough cowboy.

While they're snowbound together, Cal might give in to passion temporarily, but from behind the wall he's built around his past and his secrets, he's certain Taylor is all that he can't let himself have. And he'll use all his weapons to keep her out.

"These characters -- their dialogue, their fears, their complex personalities -- are very real. As a reader, I couldn't help fall under Cal's spell -- a good, troubled, mixed-up man who forces Taylor to confront some of her own demons, even as he refuses to face his own . . . There's a lot of subtle -- and not so subtle -- humor here, the love scenes are at once tender and sizzling, and the emotions and fears of both characters wrap themselves around the reader's heart and don't let go." – Karen Templeton

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.


Author's note: The collie puppy in Match Made in Wyoming is the alter ego of my much-loved rescue collie Riley ... right down to the inconvenient penchant for opening doors at the wrong moment. Although for Taylor and Cal, it turns out to be the right moment. :-)

PLEASE NOTE: The Paperback, printed edition of this book is available ONLY from the author's personal website: www.vigaboland.com

"NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER" won a GOLD MEDAL in the 2014 Readers Favorite Book Awards.

Trapped in a web of deceit & confusion spun by her father from the age of 11, the author shares her true story of incest in the hopes that by coming out from under years of sexual abuse, other victims will be encouraged to do the same. This is an important, no-holds-barred book complete with graphic scenes and language because "that’s the way it happened and that’s how it must be told. Victims’own voices are the best weapons against child sexual abuse." This 291-page story comes with a "trigger warning advisory" as it details the mental, physical and sexual abuse inflicted on the author by her biological father. Victims of similar abuse need to realize this story could cause flashbacks of their own as they identify with scenes and language that mirror their own experiences. Those who have never suffered sexual abuse may be shocked by what the author's father put her through and the utter control he had of all areas of her life until she finally got away.



This book will frighten and enlighten readers as to what goes on behind the closed doors of too many homes and is rarely talked about or acknowledged, or worse yet, is even denied by family members who know it is going on.



WHO SHOULD READ THIS BOOK?



1) Those who truly care about children’s welfare and wants to know the truth about what can and does go on in thousands of families worldwide. These readers want to understand how incest affects children as they grow into adulthood and what the long-lasting effects of incest can be like.

2) Those who are in denial and refuse to believe this kind of child sexual abuse actually occurs at the hands of fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles and other close family relatives



WHO SHOULDN’T READ THIS BOOK?



1) Those who think incest is an acceptable and enjoyable activity between family members

2) Those who think this is another “Fifty Shades of Gray” and are looking for sexual stimulation via books

3) Those who are still very raw in their own healing and recovery from incest and could be easily triggered by the graphic scenes and language

4) Those victims looking for a book on healing or how to recover from childhood sexual abuse. This is a story only. Those seeking help in healing should consult a therapist, join a self-help group or purchase one of the many excellent books available for healing purposes, such as THE COURAGE TO HEAL



NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER contains actual photos from the family archives and is enhanced with poems by the author set against beautiful colour graphics. Reviewers have called this book "honestly unforgettable", and more than one reader has said "I couldn't put the book down!" Read NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER and find out why one reviewer said "Viga makes me believe survival is possible for any injustice that we experience in our life. What a great read!"

Synopsis

From Karolina Robinson, Winner of the Centre of Excellence Awards 2017 - Creative Writing...

On one of those magically white winters nights, my mother took me in her arms and shut the doors behind her.
We left my drunken father in the name of a better life. And the name of that better life was Tom, a local gangster with the face of the devil himself.
The next thing I saw was my mother’s bloody face bashed into the ground and teeth scattered around her lifeless body.
I looked at him and thought to myself - PLEASE, DON'T KILL ME.

"The intensity, the drama and harsh reality will leave you gasping."


This story has haunted me all of my life, through the daily flashbacks and nightmares.
It has taken me some time to build up the courage to let this story out of my heart.
And now, with every single word I can live free.
Finally.
- Karolina -

Lizzie falls in love with Michael, a poor aspiring actor whom she helps become a superstar. Lizzie passes the diary to their daughter, Lisette, who is influenced by Queen Margaret’s manipulative, vengeful, granddaughter, sparking dangerous passions and betrayals. Can Lizzie outwit the paparazzi or will the scandal of adultery and incest end in tragedy for them all?

Amazon reviewers have compared Sarah Stuart's writing to that of Nicholas Sparks, Jackie Collins and Jacqueline Susann. Faridah Nassozi a Readers’ Favorite reviewer, described Dangerous Liaisons as a captivating novel depicting a family story that spans centuries, with each part of the story rich in detail, drama and intrigue. She went on to say; it is really impressive how the story navigates through hundreds of years ago to the present and back again without either part taking the focus away from the other. The two angles instead complement each other perfectly to bring to life a gripping and most intricate family drama. Love at first sight, fame, betrayal, forbidden passion and everything in between, this story has it all, and Sarah Stuart blended it flawlessly to produce a well-detailed and compelling read.

FALLEN HERO is about a man who seems to spend his life building bridges. Bridges between his unknown origins and his aspirations in life. Once he finds a tenuous link to his biological father Chris Squires cannot help but follow its path. Despite his misgivings he seeks out his roots.

Chris Squires is a confused man, constantly seeking his hero father-figure. The British baby boomer is surprised to find he has a connection with Fritz. Chris discovers the link through Jimmy Lucas, a GI veteran, who he believes could be his father. But his surprise turns to horror when he learns that Jimmy was involved in the death of both Patton and the boy.

Synopsis

“Are you sure, baby?”

The father of the bride-to-be noted the concern and confusion on his daughter’s face. Just before her walk down the aisle, Judi Monroe overheard a conversation that indicated marrying Sterling Carroll might be a big mistake. Escaping her socialite wedding in Lake Forest, Illinois, she headed west, covering her tracks as she went. In an isolated corner of Wyoming, she swerved her car to avoid hitting a horse and rider on the road, crashing into a tree. She’s rescued by that lone rider – or Ranger, as she fleetingly recalls -- a rugged rancher named Thomas Vance.

Judi just needed some time, to puzzle out the predicament she’d left behind in Illinois. But here she was in the arms of a doubting Thomas, a man with a strong jaw, deep-green eyes and a commanding presence. When Judi dodges his personal questions, not to mention his penetrating gaze, Thomas’ teenage half-sister Becky suggests amnesia as an explanation. Judi seizes on this foot in the Diamond V door, and stays on as a caretaker for Thomas’ beloved grandmother, who is recovering from hip surgery. Judi finds a family on the Diamond V, even as her masquerade as the home health aide Helga slowly unravels. But as she falls hard for her horse whisperer, she fears her secret will only cause him to bolt from her life. As for Thomas, he knows this impostor is lying, and it wouldn’t be the first time an outsider betrayed his family. Yet he can’t help but trust this sexy, independent, smart woman who has lassoed his heart.

She is a very ‘lively’ writer who seems to enjoy giving her readers a wonderful set of characters in a soft, almost velvety setting. Her books also offer a strong historical element, most often World War Two when the Germans invaded the island.
In the sixth novel in the set, Fiona and her twin brother, Nigel, discover hidden artwork in the walls of an antique shop. They attempt to discover whom it belonged to but, when Nigel ‘supposedly’ kills himself, Fiona attempts to discover the truth.

I must say that The Betrayal has a very different feel to it than the other novels in the set. The island is still lovingly described, the characters just as interesting and well developed, but the underlying mystery is so prominent in this story; in fact, in parts, it is almost a thriller. The pacing is faster right from the opening chapter with Teresa and Leo deciding whether to run from the invading Germans or not. And the ending is just as exciting. All in all, totally unputdownable!

To sum up, this is a wonderful novel, with tons of pace where pace is needed, and a setting so lovingly described, it is almost a character in the book. I am happy to recommend this story, in fact, all of them, to anybody who enjoys a well-plotted mystery populated with convincing and always credible characters.

Book cover image for No Tears for my Father: Part 2: LEARNING to LOVE MYSELF: A memoir of healing after child sexual abuse (incest)
View full details

Synopsis

Viga Boland, author of the Gold Medal winning book, "No Tears for my Father" was a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of her biological father for 14 years. She told no-one, including her husband, about the abuse until she was 65.



When true love afforded her a chance to escape her father, despite flashbacks and insecurities, she relied on the strengths born of her struggles and pain to embrace her new life. However, in keeping silent about the abuse for over 40 years of marriage, Viga indirectly also made her husband a victim of her narcissistic father. Yet, her husband stood strong beside her all the way: that's true love.





"Learning to Love Myself" is a memoir of rebirth and recovery from abuse. The reader will see how abuse continues to interfere with everyday living, decision-making, and healing. But at the same time, the reader will confirm the oft-spoken adage: through love, all things are possible and that without loving oneself, we cannot love others, making full healing impossible.

Synopsis

After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs wild in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such heinous acts? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? The action takes place in Jersey, Cornwall, Manchester, London and other places not of this world. Set in 2015, Random Bullets is a crime thriller with a paranormal twist.

If I tell you that I was disinherited by my crazy father, you might understand why I feel a degree of sympathy for Edward. I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on the subject of Inheritance. They’d heard that my book, Random Bullets, deals with the subject of disinheritance and its aftermath.

"Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn't put it down," "crime with a twist," "An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder," "Kinetic... really zips along at a pace, I was really drawn in" are just a few of the reader reviews that Random Bullets has received.

Random Bullets is available on Amazon in paperback, Kindle, and audiobook editions.

Synopsis

"An extraordinary narrative"
"Beautifully told - stays with you long after the last page is sadly turned."
"Carefully pieced together from personal and official documents, oral testimony and material objects"

A true story of love and reconciliation in the aftermath of the Second World War

Minny leaves Germany on a bitterly cold morning in December 1946 and travels to England to marry Jim, a British Intelligence Corps soldier in the Allied armies that defeated the Nazi regime in 1945 and occupied the devastated nation. She has survived British and American bombs and witnessed the destruction of Aachen, her ancient and beautiful city. How will a German woman cope in austere post-war Britain, where she is still regarded as the enemy? Illustrated with almost 100 images and original documents, The Bride's Trunk describes the adventures of an unremarkable piece of luggage and three generations of its owners, whose journeys across Europe are determined by the turbulent events of twentieth century history.

Some comments on 'The Bride's Trunk'

“An extraordinary narrative, pieced together from original documents, about a couple who were determined not to let war defeat them. 70 years ago the British government passed a law allowing British men to marry German women, but little thought was given to the life that those German women would find, in the aftermath of the second world war. This heart-warming tale brings alive childhood and adolescence in pre-war Germany, followed by a new life in the old enemy country."
Jackie Ashley, President of Lucy Cavendish College, University of Cambridge, and journalist

“Scant attention has been paid to the 10,000 or so German women who married British soldiers at the end of the Second World War. In this often moving account, Ingrid Dixon traces the story of her own parents, one a former secretary for the German police, the other a British soldier from the Intelligence Corps, both of whom were caught up in the chaotic last months of the Third Reich and its immediate aftermath. Their story is carefully pieced together from personal and official documents, oral testimony and material objects, including the old trunk which survived the vicissitudes of war to carry the bride’s worldly possessions to her new home in Liverpool.”
Professor Peter Wilson, Chichele Professor of the History of War, University of Oxford 

“A gripping and moving story, with excellent illustrations, which really evokes time and place and is a sensitive treatment of the conflicting feelings associated with war.”
Dr Philip Towle, Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge

Luke has his own reasons for wanting to steer clear of anything like commitment. But the secrets behind Rebecca's dark eyes keep luring him on ... even if it means baring his own heart.

Synopsis

A Princess for a few weeks …

The coming Christmas season isn’t looking great for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Certainly her family would take her in, especially Leslie and Grady Roberts and their circle of friends who have become her extended family. But it’s time she stops relying on them.

Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington, D.C., with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce.

This is the last assignment Hunter would pick. Determination and grit have moved him beyond his past in Bariavak. Yet, here it is standing in front of him again, refusing to be ignored. … Just like his reactions to April. How can he fight what he’s feeling when they’re together all the time.

King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. Now, comes this lovely young woman bringing joy to his holidays. How can he resist dabbling in some royal matchmaking. Wouldn’t it be delightful if he could give April a Christmas gift she will never forget …

Synopsis

He sees what she's long hidden ... especially from herself.

Meet Josh Kincannon, high school principal, single father of three, and thus, as he reminds himself ruefully, essentially celibate back into misty memory and forward into the foreseeable future.

After three months of trying to work with Vanessa Irish via phone and e-mails on a project to help tiny Drago, Illinois, Josh believes he has an accurate picture of Zeke-Tech's CFO:

Conscientious? Oh, yeah.
Intelligent? Absolutely.
Agreeable? Not so much.

Then he catches sight of her wild, vibrant robe and begins to wonder what other elements might form a portrait of Vanessa Irish. Every time she goes into her I'm-so-boring-I-disappear-against-white-walls act, he remembers that vibrant, wild fabric hanging on the corner of a door and he gets curious.

And the more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity. Things that shake up life as single parent to his three kids, scrape against his career as high school principal and -- oh, yes -- definitely threaten his stretch of celibacy.

Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh Kincannon. Why does he insist on drawing her into his small town, his life, his children? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?

... or is it?

Synopsis

Her demonic Angel and other short stories, published in 2016, is a collection of all of my short stories written thus far. This baker's dozen of short stories have been written in a variety of genres so hopefully there should be something for everyone. Some tales are stranger than others, but all could be said to be different shades of dark. Despite its somewhat suggestive title, Her demonic Angel is not erotica.

To whet your appetite, here are the titles of some of the short stories: ‘The boy they called Dragon’, ‘The day nobody gave a damn’, ‘An email from Jane’, ‘Stuff’, ‘Getting rid of the enemy’, ‘Skin’, ‘Too beautiful’, ‘Philately will get you nowhere’, ‘Mirror, mirror’, ‘In memoriam'.

Synopsis

When a father physically, mentally and sexually abuses his daughter from ages 11-23, why does her mother do nothing?



Has the mother enabled this situation? Did she want this to happen? Why didn't she step in and help her daughter? What kind of mother does nothing"

View full details

Synopsis

The award-winning creator and screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, Spirit Warriors starring Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Games of Thrones) brings you an action packed thrill-ride in her debut novel which will engage and excite fans of Maximum Ride, Dean Koontz's Watchers and The Last of Us.

It's so easy to take things for granted. Take, for example, trees.

Oaks provide shade and plenty of foliage to protect against sudden showers and prying eyes, but there was also the added bonus of load-bearing lower branches that someone nimble could scramble onto should trouble come calling... and you should know, trouble had me on speed-dial.

Living on the streets wasn't a walk in the park, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home, and after some eight months of being on my own, I'd gotten my routine down to a fine art - a morning dumpster dive followed by a dip in the Central Park pond - when one day I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.

We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn. The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would've been the end of our story if we hadn't been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully's clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.

So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a seemingly all-powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?

Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe - even if it meant risking my own life.


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"The story masterfully combined various threads and powered along through to an explosive finale. This is sure to be a classic once more people hear of it. Amazed this is the author's first book." - Amazon Customer.

"I was loving it so much... Before I was even half way through this book I went back to this site to see if it listed a sequel... can hardly wait!" - Sheila LS, Amazon Reviewer

"It is a fast-paced and action-packed book with three very different but very sympathetic main characters who will in turn make you laugh, cry and really, really want a dog!" - AlbaR, Amazon Reviewer

"Bandit, Chase and Sully keep this amazing story moving at a fast and furious pace. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this hard to put down book." - JMP, Amazon Reviewer.

"Jo Ho’s screenwriting background is clearly evident in the pacing, which takes all of the time necessary to tell the story and describe the setting and characters but wastes no words doing so... I highly recommend it to anybody who’s a fan of YA or even just a fan of reading in general." - Amazon Customer.

Synopsis

Prince Karl longs to once more be plain Karl Wethers, Wyoming rancher. Instead, his sense of responsibility, nurtured as a cowboy and honed in the U.S. Army, won’t let him turn his back on King Jozef of Bariavak. But he has a plan. If he can pull it off

Then international media consultant Harmon Reed re-enters his life. The Army brat who liked to juggle lit sticks of dynamite is now a woman who could explode that dynamite in his face. He’s fully occupied with trying to keep her from knowing anything about the complications of his royal life, because he will never trust her again, despite the pull of a love long gone.

For Harmon, what started as a youthful summer fling ignited into a love that shook her to her core. Equally smitten, Karl saw something beyond her beauty and rebellious streak. Then Harmon broke it off – and broke Karl’s heart. They went their separate ways, but no matter how far apart they traveled, the embers of first love remained. And the slim hope of a second chance floated in the periphery.

Oh, yes, these two have a history. A history neither has forgotten … but can they forgive?

Synopsis

You think you know all about monsters? You don't!

Say 'How d'you do' to an aging ogre; a willful monster who doesn't do what it's told; a ghost who came to tea and put 'swashbuckling' into mealtimes; tricky Kleptomania who can't stop disappearing things (will she take the school?); a dragon; a gorgon with a conscience; a wheeling-dealing zombie and a hydra that wished it didn't come for dinner. These are only some of the monsters you'll meet, but watch out, there are others... you know the sort - disgusting, rude or emitting dangerous screams. A few are captured in here... but most of them are out there... living around you. You may even know one or two.

These funny and pacey monster rhymes will make you splutter and guffaw. They'll have you checking behind you, or wondering what it was you saw out of the corner of your eye or pondering the fate of poor old Quantum Querulous.

*For Kids age 8 to 80

*Monsters ancient and modern, myths and legends come to life
*Includes at least one riddle, limerick and sonnet

*Beware
*Short reads with good rhythm and rhyme make for growing enjoyment of the English language
*What have you got to lose but a laugh (or in the case of Justin the Giant... don't get in the way of what he loses!)
*26 rhymes for 26 letters. Just because they are alphabetical doesn't mean they're only for children. Deeper messages are afoot.

Synopsis

The words in this loosely autobiographical second book in the Mug Trilogy were triggered by the entanglement between Mug, a recently divorced, disinherited, temporarily sex-obsessed woman and Michael. Her Gordian knot was a complex, mendacious, Scottish baggage handler who destiny threw her way late one night in early 2004. She was an honest, too trusting, troubled woman in her late forties. He was an enigma eleven years her junior who was hiding many shocking secrets. Mug's original plan was to write about their unusual story as a present to give to him for Christmas. Little did she know that her gift would almost kill him. She had wanted the opportunity to describe in her book her life prior to their meeting, because it shaped how she felt about him, why she tolerated what others might deem unacceptable. The purpose of Mug's book was to drastically change into a desperate effort to make sense of unfolding bizarre events and to help them both deal with the aftermath.

“I couldn't put it down!” -- Amazon Review

The Kiss Was a Rehearsal, Did She Forget to Say ‘Cut’?

Filmmaker Kay Aaronson left New York for small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, to jumpstart her career. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan.
When Kay’s leading man stalks off the set of the music video she’s shooting at the historic Bliss House, the town’s wise and beloved Miss Trudi invites recent divorcee Rob Dalton to take the part.
Kay sets the scene, increasingly distracted by this businessman who’s far more handsome than her missing star. When her hands-on direction leads to a fiery kiss, the sparks are visible for all to see.
Everyone thinks they’re right for each other, but nobody knows the secrets they’re harboring. Or what it might mean if those secrets became public.
Will Rob and Kay let fear determine their fate, or risk allowing themselves to explore where that first kiss might lead?

Synopsis

“How often do you find yourself unhappily committed to a book?” asked Pollens. “I believe that “HAUNTED” would not fall into this category, but I want readers to have a special option… the “IN THE BEGINNING” version… FREE on Sunday, Oct. 23 and again on Oct 24.”

Here’s a bit of what the story is about…

In spite of years of successful academic achievement, Dr. Harold Treadwell, a PHD psychologist at Philadelphia’s Jess Hawkins University (JHU), has extremely low self-esteem. Memories of a year’s earlier incident plague him and he loses himself in the complexities of a sleep-study research project.

Harold’s proposed research focuses on sufferers of undiagnosed and untreated mysterious pain… mental and physical difficulties that appear without warning and ruin lives. Harold spends five-years designing a sleep-stasis chamber… a necessary apparatus in the proposed study. Finally, he submits a grant application to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Its approval is in doubt until an unexpected source of support with NIH influence surfaces.

“That much is all in the “IN THE BEGINNING” intro,” explained Pollens, “and I believe is enough to excite readers who will want to get the full tale.” The intro runs more than 35 pages and more than 7000 words. The Kindle eBook version is normally available for $2.99 at Amazon.com but will be free during Oct. 23 and 24.

A Stranger in His Own Town, to His Own Daughter

When the bad boy of Tobias, Wisconsin, returns home, the repercussions reach far and deep.
Handsome and charming Zach Corbett left the small town eight years ago to make his own way... and never looked back.
Not at the pregnant ex-girlfriend he left behind. Or at what his departure might mean for his brother Steve, whose wedding was put on hold to raise a baby.
Tensions are high, and there’s only one person who might be able to redeem the Corbetts’ troubled family reunion, a woman who has truly seen Zach since they were kids.
Fran Dalton has always seen beyond the bravado to the pain in those beautiful baby blues of Zach’s. Now, she can see he’s different. And, unlike when they were kids, now she’s grabbed his attention.
If only she can draw Zach into a loving relationship, and prove how much he’s changed, his fractured family might just find it in their hearts to forgive. And heal.

Can Zach and Fran escape the past’s hold to make a future?

“Ordinary, and yet unforgettable, characters in an endearing story readers will treasure.” – 5-Star Amazon Review

Close Friends, a Secret Crush

It was his sister’s wedding, but Max Trevetti’s eyes weren’t focused on the bride.

Growing up in small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, Max helped raise his little sister Annette, and was a surrogate big brother to her best friend, Suzanna Grant. Suz always had a secret crush on her best friend's brother, but she would never have thought Max actually saw her as more than a friend.

Except now Max can’t keep his eyes off of her. That stunning red dress. Her smile.

When the wedding celebration leads to unexpected passion, neither knows what happens next … especially when they’re constantly thrown together trying to save historic Bliss House for eccentric, meddling Miss Trudi.

Was it just a fling, or will this wedding plant the seed for their own?

Synopsis

Seasons in a Small Town – Spring

In rural Drago, Illinois, Zeke came by his “the Geek” nickname honest, more comfortable in the world of algebra and algorithms than high school’s social hallways. Though that didn’t keep him from longing for the unattainable prom queen, Jennifer.

The one person who did understand his out-of-the-box brain was Darcie, his best friend. After their high school graduation, Zeke and Darcie for one night jolted from friends to lovers. And then he left town, and she knew he couldn’t look back. What he didn’t know was the depth of Darcie’s feelings for him.

Now it’s 17 years later, and Zeke’s a self-made billionaire founder of a tech security firm, Darcie’s a local cop and Jennifer’s a divorced mom of a tween girl. And their little town is flagging.

At Darcie’s urging, Zeke returns to Drago to boost its economy. Will his new wealth attract the still-beautiful Jennifer? Or will Darcie, the one girl who always made him feel at ease, show him that true love knows no boundaries?

Synopsis

We all lie once in a while…
Let’s just be honest here for a second. We lie about our past relationships, weight, age, partners, I mean sometimes we lie for no reason whatsoever. It’s just our way to “posh” things up, ’cos let’s agree, nobody ever lied to make it worse for themselves. We always try to get something out of it.
Edward Lee made up a lie to save his relationship with his wife. A story which grabbed the attention of the whole of the United Kingdom back in the noughties.
Now, where are the boundaries of lying? And how can one measure the lie? ’Cos when it came to Edward, his was a massive pile of bullshit that, surprisingly, saved his marriage.

Synopsis

CEO Suzette LeBlec has a problem. Well, actually two. She needs a top-notch temporary replacement for her administrative assistant’s maternity leave, and she needs to find a way to outmaneuver a hostile takeover attempt by Mark Adams. To make things worse, it’s almost Christmas, the time when Suzette most feels alone in the world. She loves the wheeling and dealing, but she wouldn’t mind meeting someone like the handsome stranger she’d recently seen at one of the many parties she attended this year. But when the same stranger applies for the temp job, his almost-too-good-to-be-true credentials set off Suzette’s alarms.

Dirk Harvey worked hard for years to remain anonymous while he rebuilt his father’s floundering company back up to its glory days. But when he discovers the stunning woman he’d spotted at a party is hiring, he decides to go undercover as “Dirk Mulligan”, administrative assistant extraordinaire. Besides, he and Suzette have a common problem: takeover King Mark Adams. Maybe they can find a solution, and give each other an unexpected holiday bonus.

Synopsis

Seasons in a Small Town: Winter

The past might be cold, but it’s familiar for Anne. And the future? That might be as gray as a mid-winter Illinois sky. She’s desperately trying to hold on to the family farm owned by her late husband’s great uncle. With Uncle Everett disabled and her new to farming, loans are impossible to get.

Between the farm and the bookkeeping she does for businesses in town, she’s working to exhaustion. And she’s not good at asking for help. Never has been.

Then here comes Quince.

As an executive of the high-tech company bringing operations to Drago, Illinois – and driving up land prices and taxes – he represents part of the problem. But that doesn’t mean Anne can afford to turn down his rent money when Uncle Everett lines him up as a boarder. And – just what she needs -- the two of them hit it off like an old-fashioned comedy team.

Quince is a warm front moving fast through her home and her life, promising spring even when all around is frozen. His quick humor and easygoing ways reach deep into the coldest part of Anne’s troubled heart.

But she realizes that behind that front, Quince, too, has icy demons.

Can Anne save not only this farm she loves, but also herself … and Quince?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Christmas Romance: Three Complete Holiday Love Stories is USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's collection of moving, passionate, charming contemporary romances that will captivate fans of RaeAnne Thayne, Barbara Freethy and Debbie Macomber.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

1 -- Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning (Book 1, Wyoming Wildflowers)

Before the bestselling and award-winning Wyoming Wildflowers series, there was another love story, one that laid the foundation for all those that came after.
Ed Currick’s and Donna Roberts’ worlds couldn’t have been any more different – a rancher from Wyoming and an up-and-coming Broadway musical actress on a national tour. What could have been a momentary encounter sparks desire . . . and more. But can there be anything but heartbreak ahead when they have only days before their dreams pull them apart?

2 -- The Christmas Princess (Book 5, The Wedding Series)

The coming Christmas season isn’t looking great for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce, a stoic State Department agent with secrets of his own.
King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. As this lovely young woman brings joy to his holidays, he can't resist some royal matchmaking.

3 -- Falling for Her (Book 3, Seasons in a Small Town)

High school principal Josh Kincannon has his hands full as a single father of three, and dating is mostly a misty memory. Then he meets tech executive Vanessa Irish, finding her conscientious and intelligent, but distant and distracted. The more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity.
Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh. Why does he insist on drawing her into his small town, his life, his children? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?

Readers Love Wyoming Wildflowers:

"If you love to laugh; love to cry; or love to laugh and cry at the same time, then you'll definitely want to read Almost a Bride."

"Smart, stubborn and irresistible."

”Nothing short of heart consuming and thrilling."

Praise for The Wedding Series:

“McLinn writes a delightful, romantic tale with The Christmas Princess, which holds all the coziness of the holiday spirit. … McLinn is an expert at revealing the layers enveloping her characters. With each reveal, sometimes exquisitely subtle, we are pulled in deeper to be active participants in the emotionally charged, yet heart-melting romance. This is Happy Holidays with a grateful sigh.” – USA Today

“A wonderful series that will make you laugh and cry. Each page is filled with love that will eventually come to the people who so need it. A must read!” – 5-star review

Synopsis

“If you’ve been feeling burned out and let down by category romance, the Wyoming Wildflowers series will remind you how much there is to love in the genre.” — Writers Club Romance Group
- - - - -
Revisit the characters you’ve come to love in The Beginning, Almost a Bride, Match Made in Wyoming and My Heart Remembers in this bundled duo that continues the Wyoming Wildflowers series with JACK'S HEART (Book 5) and its prequel, A NEW WORLD. Wyoming Wildflowers: Box Set 2 contains moving, passionate contemporary Western romances with a touch of humor that will captivate fans of RaeAnne Thayne, Barbara Freethy and Debbie Macomber. The stories revolve around the loves and lives of the good people of Knighton, Wyoming, including those who own the ranches and those in the little town who keep the health clinic, law office, diner, school and flower shop running.

Book 5, Jack’s Heart
Valerie is very pregnant and very lost. Her car is jammed in a snowy Wyoming ditch when a white knight in a cowboy hat shows up. Ranch foreman Jack handles anything that needs handling with cool, quiet competence, including a baby who’s decided it’s time to come into the world.
A few years later, Valerie returns to Knighton to thank the hero who delivered her baby. Okay, maybe she’s wondered about him over the years. How could she not?
Yes, Jack can handle anything. Except this open, energetic, talkative woman and her short-stuff kid who gets under his guard. Because they demand the one thing from him that he can’t handle – love.

A New World
Affaire de Coeur contemporary author of the year finalist
Before Valerie tried to heal a cowboy in Jack’s Heart, she pushed her cousin Eleanor into the arms of Cahill in A New World.
Eleanor refuses to be charmed by the Irish balladeer she hires to strum up business for her Gloucester, Massachusetts, beach restaurant. She's far too practical for a workplace romance ... or to fall for a fantasy-spinner like Cahill. An immigrant with temporary status, Cahill wants to share his future with the strong-minded, too-serious-for-her-own-good Eleanor. But he must convince her of his staying power. And his time is running out

Readers rave about JACK'S HEART (from 5-star reviews):
“Very sweet and sad all at the same time. The gatherings, the glimpses in the Curricks’ life, the way Jack heals the horses, the connection he has with Val and Addie, are all the elements that make this book so lovable. … This is a very distinct book -- like all [the Wyoming Wildflowers books] were. ... The location is amazing, the story of ‘you and me’ is heart-warming, and the grand gesture is the icing on the cake.”
“McLinn is the real deal writer. So satisfying.”
“Exceptionally well crafted … Attention to detail and precise use of the language highlight quality storytelling.”

Praise for the Wyoming Wildflowers stories:
”Nothing short of heart consuming and thrilling. I've loved every one and feel like I know the people personally. I can't wait for the next installment. … Amazing and touching story. … Smart, stubborn and irresistible. … So enjoyable I couldn’t put it down. … Delightful! … Love, love, loved them. Well written, wonderful characters with the most realistic, flowing dialog I've read in a long time.”

Synopsis

Coaches, and a Matchmaking King
In The Surprise Princess, Book 6 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s acclaimed The Wedding Series, King Jozef of Bariavak continues his search for his long-missing granddaughter, and State Department security official Hunter Pierce is on the case again. This time the clues lead to Ashton, Wisconsin, and the athletic offices of Ashton University. There, young Katie Davis works as an administrative assistant and Brad Spencer as a basketball coach, and both soon will be caught up in international intrigue and some royal matchmaking. You are introduced to Brad and the Ashton campus in Hoops, the prequel to The Surprise Princess. Flash back a few years and Brad is a star on the basketball team, coached by C.J. Draper and tutored by Carolyn Trent. The latter two return in The Surprise Princess as mentors to Katie, and, okay, they might take part in a little matchmaking themselves.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Book 6, The Surprise Princess
A Princess? No Way
Katie is a perfectly ordinary young woman living a perfectly ordinary life in small-town Wisconsin … isn’t she?
The most interesting thing about her is that she works for the men’s basketball office at Ashton. If she considers the biggest perk of the job being around Brad, the assistant basketball coach, that also makes her ordinary, because what woman wouldn’t feel that way? So these people coming around saying she could be the long-lost granddaughter of the King of Bariavak have to be wrong … don’t they?
Brad has a real soft spot for Katie. She stirs his protectiveness, his penchant for the underdog, and, possibly, certain other reactions he’s not about to indulge. So he’s going to do his damnedest to make sure Katie gets all that she deserves, including the crown that might be her right … even though it means Her Royal Highness will never again look at a basketball coach from Wisconsin like he’s the king of her heart.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Hoops (an RITA Finalist)
Before Brad volunteers to be Katie's protector, he played on a college basketball team that had a very special season.

The Coach and the Professor
Carolyn Trent's logically mapped journey to becoming the perfect professor of English was hijacked the day she became academic adviser to the Ashton University men's basketball team. The hijacker was C.J. Draper, the team's infuriating, irreverent and sexy new coach.
C.J. has never let adversity stop him - if he had he'd never have gotten this far. He's not about to start by letting Professor Trent derail him. If he chose to rattle her ivory tower it was just for the fun of seeing the fiery woman beneath the marble-cool exterior . . . wasn't it?
When logic clashes with ambition in the game of love, will anyone win?
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The Surprise Princess and its prequel, Hoops, are moving, passionate small-town romances that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Susan Mallery and Sarah Wilson.

Synopsis

Jack and Valerie invite you to share the big day with them and other characters you’ve come to love. Actually, it will be more like their big week, with lots of goings-on at the Slash-C Ranch and in Knighton, Wyoming. Plus visits from characters from the Bardville, Wyoming and A Place Called Home series.
It’s going to be a huge party, with new romantic intrigue and the intrusion of some unfinished business.
If you missed Jack and Val’s story, read it now in Jack’s Heart. And for more background on the Massachusetts side of the wedding party, check out A New World, the prequel to Jack's Heart.
A note from author Patricia McLinn: Each of my Wyoming Wildflowers books is a stand-alone story, with no cliff-hangers. However, if you are new to Wyoming Wildflowers, this latest installment, A Cowboy Wedding, is best read with a little introduction to the many friends and family attending Jack and Val's ceremony. Almost a Bride, my first book in the series, is a good starting point. Or the prequel, Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning, provides some back story. I've also included a wedding party and guest list in A Cowboy Wedding to help sort out all the characters. I hope you will join in the fun.

Synopsis

Unexpected Holiday Bonus by Merry Holly

CEO Suzette LeBlec has a problem. Well, two actually. She needs a top-notch temporary replacement for her administrative assistant’s maternity leave, and she needs to find a way to outmaneuver a hostile takeover attempt by Mark Adams. To make things worse, it’s almost Christmas, the time when Suzette most feels alone in the world. Too bad that handsome man at the party got away. But when the same stranger applies for the temp job, his almost-too-good-to-be-true credentials set off Suzette’s alarms.



Dirk Harvey worked hard for years to remain anonymous while he built his father’s floundering company back up to its glory days. But when he discovers the stunning woman he’d spotted at a party is hiring, he decides to go undercover as “Dirk Mulligan”, administrative assistant extraordinaire. Besides, he and Suzette have a common problem: takeover King Mark Adams. Maybe they can find a solution together plus a little holiday bonus as well.



The Littlest Angel by Vicki Batman

Lauren MacDonald has always coveted her mother’s ornament, The Littlest Angel. When her mother gave it to another, Lauren embarks on a lengthy search and finds a replacement only to have it snatched from her hands.



Smith Hancock’s grandmother had a little angel which has gone missing. Finding another at a flea market would make her holiday the best ever. Only a feisty girl is claiming it for herself.

Can the twosome find common ground and discover the true meaning of Christmas?



A Promise of Forever by Gerri Brousseau

Her virtue is lost, and her reputation in tatters when a twist of fate sends Lady Roxanne Rothchild from London to the vibrant city of Venice, and into the arms of the handsome and intriguing Danté.

Synopsis

“A great read. The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart.” -- Vine Voice

Seasons in a Small Town – Summer

Pretty, popular Jennifer was prom queen in small-town Drago, Illinois, the girl who had it made.

That is, until her no-good ex-husband left her with a child to raise and a household deep in debt. And the family seemed somehow to blame the breakup on her. But Jennifer steeled herself to the challenge and vowed to show them all, especially her vulnerable young daughter. Who knew that a dusty old car dealership might turn out to be her saving grace.

That and Trent Stenner, her ex’s brother and a former NFL football star turned successful executive. He, too, sees value in the car lot that once had been a thriving family business. Jennifer’s goal is to sell the dealership, but Trent has another strategy. He can see the whipsmart Jennifer at the helm of the town’s vital enterprise, but he knows she’ll resist any move seen as charity. And he admires that same independent streak he sees in her athletic daughter.

Can Trent and Jennifer save the family business without losing their wallets – and hearts?

The Right Brother, Book 2 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Seasons in a Small Town series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Roxanne St. Clair and Jill Shalvis.


Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series:

“You laugh, you angst, you maybe shed a couple tears or two, and at the end of it you move immediately onto the next book because -- unlike teenage Zeke -- you don't want to get away, all you want to do is go back.”

“I can only hope there is another installment with this small town as its setting.”

“Strong characters with enough faults to make them human and real” yet “The other characters in Drago all add to the story rather than taking attention from the main action.”

“McLinn delivers a fun, engaging, and emotionally complicated romance.”

“Poignant, heart warming” . . . “Funny and heart-wrenching at the same time” . . . “Passionate and sensual without being distasteful or vulgar.”

Synopsis

Wilda, a single parent, lived in a small town with her son. She saw her husband’s dreams as her targets. She went beyond the chains to fulfill those dreams. Alex was four years old when she lost her husband in an accident. She always felt thankful to him regarding his ‘life insurance’ from which she got some money. Alex was only motivation she was left with; she called him soil of her eyes. It was enough for her to discover a small world to live in.
Though the story line follows Alex's life; where it was started and where it went, throughout the story, author KarmSavi M.S. Gill is as concerned with portraying Wilda’s vision of flourish; connecting Alex’s will with her husband’s dreams. Later, the story explores how Alex dealt with thrill and fear of not finding the way out to fulfill his dream.
But, there is always a story behind the story; why Wilda sold the flower shop and started working in kindergarten…

Synopsis

A runaway bride goes west, and a royal introduction in D.C.

Revisit the characters you’ve come to love in Prelude to a Wedding, Wedding Party and Grady’s Wedding in this boxed set duo. Paul Monroe’s little sister, Judi, leaves her groom at the altar and runs off to Wyoming in The Runaway Bride, Book 4 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s acclaimed The Wedding Series. In Book 5, the series takes another turn as April Gareaux, who has left Lake Forest, Illinois, the Roberts family and their circle of friends to strike out on her own, winds up alone in Washington, D.C., for the holidays. Who would ever guess that April would soon become wrapped up in royal intrigue?

Book 4, The Runaway Bride
The father of the bride-to-be noted the concern and confusion on his daughter’s face. Just before her walk down the aisle, Judi Monroe overheard a conversation that indicated marrying Sterling Carroll might be a big mistake. Escaping her socialite wedding in Lake Forest, she headed west, covering her tracks as she went.
In an isolated corner of Wyoming, she swerved her car to avoid hitting a horse and rider on the road, crashing into a tree. She’s rescued by that lone rider — or Ranger, as she fleetingly recalls — a rugged rancher named Thomas Vance. Judi just needed some time, to puzzle out the predicament she’d left behind in Illinois. But here she was in the arms of a doubting Thomas, a man with a strong jaw, deep-green eyes and a commanding presence.
When Judi dodges his personal questions, not to mention his penetrating gaze, Thomas’ teenage half-sister Becky suggests amnesia. Judi seizes on this foot in the Diamond V door, and stays on as a caretaker for Thomas’ beloved grandmother.
Judi finds a family on the Diamond V, even as her masquerade as the home health aide “Helga” slowly unravels. But as she falls hard for her horse whisperer, she fears her secret will only cause him to bolt from her life. As for Thomas, he knows this impostor is lying, and it wouldn’t be the first time an outsider betrayed his family. Yet he can’t help but trust this sexy, independent, smart woman who has lassoed his heart.

Book 5, The Christmas Princess
The coming Christmas season isn’t looking great for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Certainly her family would take her in, especially Leslie and Grady Roberts and their circle of friends who have become her extended family. But it’s time she stops relying on them.
Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce.
This is the last assignment Hunter would pick. Determination and grit have moved him beyond his past in Bariavak. Yet, here it is standing in front of him again, refusing to be ignored. … Just like his reactions to April. How can he fight what he’s feeling when they’re together all the time.
King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. Now, comes this lovely young woman bringing joy to his holidays. How can he resist dabbling in some royal matchmaking. Wouldn’t it be delightful if he could give April a Christmas gift she will never forget?
