Forever (Temptation #3) by Karen Ann HopkinsYA Contemporary RomancePublished: 28th January 2014"Description"
All I want is my happily-ever-after.

That's all I've wanted since meeting Noah Miller.

From the day we met, the world has tried to keep Noah and me from being together, but now that I'm carrying his child, no one will be able to tear us apart. Or so I hope. But Noah and I have made some mistakes along the way, and the consequences are impacting the people we love. Worse, there's a storm on the horizon, and it's sure to cause serious devastation.

If we can get through this, we'll finally be Rose and Noah; a family, forever.

But first we have to survive the road ahead. And happily-ever-after is a long way off.

About THE FINE ART OF PRETENDING
Release Date: September 30, 2014Author: Rachel Harris Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary
According to the guys at Fairfield Academy, there are two types of girls: the kind you hook up with, and the kind you're friends with. Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Reed is the second type. And she hates it. With just one year left to change her rank, she devises a plan to become the first type by homecoming, and she sets her sights on the perfect date—Justin Carter, Fairfield Academy’s biggest hottie and most notorious player.

With 57 days until the dance, Aly launches Operation Sex Appeal and sheds her tomboy image. The only thing left is for Justin actually to notice her. Enter best friend Brandon Taylor, the school’s second biggest hottie, and now Aly’s pretend boyfriend. With his help, elevating from “funny friend” to “tempting vixen” is only a matter of time.

But when everything goes according to plan, the inevitable “break up” leaves their friendship in shambl…

A Husband for Margaret (Nebraska Historicals) by Ruth Ann Nordin

Image
DescriptionWhen Margaret Williams posted an ad for a husband, she expected Paul Connealy to arrive, but instead, his older brother, Joseph, came...and he brought four children with him. This light-hearted tender romance is the sequel to A Bride for Tom.
ReviewIt was another five star read from the author whose work I have come to like a lot. It was funny, light and entertaining. In this book we see that in response to Margaret's add for a husband a man with four children, all boys at that, came to town. It was a surprise Margaret didn't like at all but then she felt sorry for him and realised that there weren't any men lining up to propose her so this could work for both of them. Joseph needs a mother for his children and a wife to be his companion and he felt that Margaret could be that person. Hence they married. There are some twists and turns which make the story all the more enjoyable.Although it was a fun read I would've liked it more if it weren't so short an…

A Bride for Tom (Nebraska Historicals) by Ruth Ann Nordin

"Quotes" "Marriage can seem long with a man attached to his mother's apron strings. Perhaps Peter isn't ready to marry yet."
---A Bride for Tom, Ruth Ann Nordin

"But if you like the one you're with, it makes it all the better."
---A Bride for Tom, Ruth Ann Nordin

"Review" A funny and interesting story about a clumsy guy (Tom) looking for a bride and a beautiful and kind girl (Jessica) who tries to help him. There are a lot of laugh-out-loud scenes and the characters are just so "cute". Its beautifully written and a real treat for historical romance fans.
Their first encounter ended with her in tears but she knew it wasn't his fault and she was willing to over look his clumsiness and try to be friends. Tom on the other hand had no idea that she was engaged and mistook her friendship for something more. After initial shock and hurt he decided to distant himself from her because he couldn't be with her knowing that she …

Guardian For Hire (For Hire #2) by Christine Bell

Image
"Description"Psychologist Sarabeth Lucking’s life is turned upside down when the upscale couples’ retreat she works for winds up embroiled in the biggest scandal of the year. With her reputation in tatters, she can’t imagine things getting worse, until her former co-workers are murdered, one by one. A bad-ass, ex-Army Ranger might be able to keep her safe, but something tells her she’s getting more than she bargained for...

Gavin McClintock grew up on the streets of Edinburgh, and protecting prissy Dr. Stick-Up-Her-Rear isn’t high on his list of things to do. Still, a promise is a promise, and he’ll need a clear head if he’s going to keep her off the growing list of victims. He didn’t count on the fire in her, or how distracted he’d be by her. As the flames grow hotter, he starts to wonder if she’s the one who needs protecting.

Will Sarabeth and Gavin outrun a killer and give into the passion burning between them?

Resisting the Hero by Cindi Madsen


Resisting her brother’s best friend is futile…
Faith Fitzpatrick isn’t looking for a hero. Burned one too many times in the past, she’s now sworn them off completely. And when her brother’s best friend, Connor, convinces him to join the dangerous SWAT team, Faith has never been more anti-hero. What’s wrong with having a safe job? There’s nothing safe about Connor. Confident, sexy, and sporting a six-pack that should be illegal, he’s everything she doesn’t want.
When his best friend’s sister moves to town, local cop Connor Maguire knows he’s in trouble. Faith is feisty, funny, and talks trash like nobody’s business. She’s also his partner’s sister—and so totally off limits. Working on the Fall Festival together, they agree to a truce and become friends. But the more time Connor spends with Faith, the more he’s willing to risk the wrath of her brother. If he could only convince her to take a risk on him, too.

Falling For Her Fiancé by Cindi Madsen


What’s a little fake engagement between best friends?
Danielle and Wes have been best friends since college, so when Wes needs a date for his sister’s wedding and Dani needs a partner for her company’s retreat, they devise the perfect plan: a fake engagement to get through both events unscathed.
Adrenaline-junkie Wes can prove to both his ex and his family that he’s well and truly moved on, and serious-minded Dani can prove to her boss that she’s worthy of the promotion he seems to only want to give to a family-oriented employee. But amid the fake swoons, fake kisses, and forced proximity, neither expects the very real feelings that develop. There’s nothing more dangerous than falling for your best friend…but what if the landing is worth the fall?
