“A warm and wonderful book about love, family and everything that’s important in life. Irresistible! I loved it!” NYT Bestselling Author Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Joanna Wingate knows something is missing from her life, something she never dreamed she’d find in a handsome stranger’s children—mischievous six-year-old twin sisters who look up at her adoringly…and call her “Mama.”
Since his wife’s accidental death, Michael Ashton has struggled with his many responsibilities as a single parent to twin daughters who, though they clearly love him, refuse to speak to him. Then he meets Rose and Lily’s new teacher, and his emotions spin out of control. For Joanna Wingate is the mirror image of his late wife.
Bizarre coincidence, a strange destiny…or something altogether different has joined these four lives. The twins believe Mariah—a magical fortune-teller in a crystal ball—has the answers. But only Joanna and Michael’s willingness to confront long-buried secrets can guide their families back to wholeness…and unite them in a love that seems meant to be.
“Sexy, steamy and hella sweet. This small town romance is BRILLIANT! Prepare to swoon HARD!” – Sophie, Begging For Book Boyfriends
Grace is ready to settle down — but then a drunken bet leads to a fake relationship with commitment-phobic Charlie, who needs help with his matchmaking family. Can it ever be more? A USA Today bestselling author delivers an irresistibly steamy small-town romance!
Marjorie Steel is still healing from the events of the past year, and she’s happy to put her plans to study culinary arts on hold to help her best friend deal with a difficult pregnancy and two recently adopted troubled boys. The fact that Bryce Simpson spends a lot of time at the Steel Ranch is a benefit, and she’s ready to see if her attraction to him might be something more.
Bryce wants to do a hard day’s work on the ranch. Once his muscles give out and he collapses from exhaustion, maybe he’ll stop torturing himself over his late father’s horrific double life. The Steels have a different idea. They ask Bryce to take an executive position complete with a profit share. As he has a young son and widowed mother to support, it’s an offer he can’t refuse. The only catch is Marjorie. She’s beautiful, smart, feisty, and her kisses set him on fire. But he’s an empty shell with nothing to offer her, and she deserves the world.
In this modern-retelling of “Beauty and the Beast,” Savannah Carmichael, betrayed by an unreliable source, returns to her hometown of Danvers, Virginia with her once-promising journalism career in ruins. Given the opportunity to get back in the game by writing a patriotic human interest piece, Savannah turns her attention to the town hermit, Asher Lee, a wounded veteran who returned to Danvers eight years ago, and hasn’t been seen since.
After an IED explosion in Afghanistan took Asher’s hand and disfigured half of his face, he’s lived a quiet life on the outskirts of Danvers where the locals respect his privacy…that is, until Savannah Carmichael comes calling in a borrowed sundress with a plate of homemade brownies. When Asher agrees to be interviewed by Savannah, he starts feeling things for the beautiful reporter that he hasn’t felt in years.
Misfits in small-town Danvers, Savannah and Asher create a bond right away, touching each other’s hearts in ways neither thought possible. When a terrible mistake threatens to drive them apart, they’ll have to decide if the love they found in one another’s arms is strong enough to fight for their hard-won happily ever after.
