When
Jana Richards read her first romance novel, she immediately knew two
things: she had to commit the stories running through her head to
paper, and they had to end with a happily ever after. She also knew
she’d found what she was meant to do. Since then she’s never met
a romance genre she didn’t like. She writes contemporary romance,
romantic suspense, and historical romance set in World War Two, in
lengths ranging from short story to full length novel. Just for fun,
she throws in generous helpings of humor, and the occasional dash of
the paranormal. Her paranormal romantic suspense “Seeing Things”
was a 2008 EPPIE finalist.

In
her life away from writing, Jana is an accountant/admin assistant, a
mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to her husband Warren. She
enjoys golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not
necessarily in that order. She and her husband live in Winnipeg,
Canada. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her

Sam is forced to share his space with the owner’s beautiful yet infuriating daughter Layla, her crazy family, and a parade of hopeful suitors

The
Marriage Game

 

by
Sara Desai

 

Genre:
Romantic Comedy

 

 

***

***
 

 

This
novel has all the funny banter and sexy feels you could want in a
romantic comedy.”–NPR

 

 

A high stakes wager pits an aspiring
entrepreneur against a ruthless CEO in this sexy romantic
comedy.

After her life falls
apart, recruitment consultant Layla Patel returns home to her family
in San Francisco. But in the eyes of her father, who runs a Michelin
starred restaurant, she can do no wrong. He would do anything to see
her smile again. With the best intentions in mind, he offers her the
office upstairs to start her new business and creates a profile on an
online dating site to find her a man. She doesn’t know he’s
arranged a series of blind dates until the first one comes knocking
on her door…

As CEO of a
corporate downsizing company Sam Mehta is more used to conflict than
calm. In search of a quiet new office, he finds the perfect space
above a cozy Indian restaurant that smells like home. But when
communication goes awry, he’s forced to share his space with the
owner’s beautiful yet infuriating daughter Layla, her crazy
family, and a parade of hopeful suitors, all of whom threaten to
disrupt his carefully ordered life.

As
they face off in close quarters, the sarcasm and sparks fly. But when
the battle for the office becomes a battle of the heart, Sam and
Layla have to decide if this is love or just a game.

Love
in Fenton County Book 5

 

by
Sarah Sutton

 

Genre:

DIAMONDS
MEET ROCK ‘N ROLL AND SECRETS MEET THEIR END.
 

 

In a life of
diamond bracelets and country clubs, I’m the perfect daughter. I
get all the right grades, volunteer at all the right organizations,
apply to all the right colleges.

 

And I hate every second of
it. At the rate my life is playing out, under the strict rule of my
parents, politicians and housewives will be my future.

 

Until I
meet Harry.

 

Harry’s a singer in a rock band with a voice so
beautiful that I actually feel hypnotized. Doesn’t hurt that he’s
hot either, and with the kind, flirty personality to match, it’s
the perfect trifecta. And even better, he sees the me I want to be.
He sees me as the girl who can break free of the life she’s trapped
in, who can control her own future.

 

The only problem? He knows
me as Stella, my fun, carefree alter ego—so drastically different
from Destelle, the girl who is trapped in the life her parents
rule.

 

But as we get closer, I realize Harry’s keeping a
secret of his own, something related to the dark past that he’s
trying to move on from, and when I find out, everything we’ve built
could come crashing down.

Return to Edisto Island is the story of a young woman’s difficult decision to run from threat and danger

Tuesday, May 11th, 2021

 

Claire
at Edisto

 

The
Edisto Trilogy Book 1

 

by
Lin Stepp

 

Genre:
Christian Contemporary Romance

 

 

Standing
in grief and shock at the grave of her young husband, Claire Avery
wonders what she and her young daughters will do now. They live in
the church parsonage they need to vacate. She hasn’t worked since her
marriage twelve years ago. Old issues and complications hinder
relationships with her family. Struggling for answers, Claire accepts
her brother-in-law’s offer to stay at his beach house at Edisto to
give her a season to heal and think. But even the peace and beauty of
the coastal island bring new problems along with unexpected joys as
Claire seeks to find her way.

 

Parker
Avery always promised his brother Charles he would look after Claire
if anything happened to him. Charles stood by him three years ago
when his wife Ann died and Parker is determined now to be a help to
Claire and the girls. As time passes, instead of feeling like a hero,
he feels like a heel instead as he realizes he’s developing feelings
for his own brother’s widow. To make things worse, he watches with
pain and jealousy as Miles Lawrence waltzes into Claire’s life. What
can he expect though? It hardly seems right that Claire, even after a
season of mourning, would ever fall in love with her own
brother-in-law.

Return
to Edisto

 

The
Edisto Trilogy Book 2

 

 

Return
to Edisto Island in the rich, Lowcountry story of a young woman’s
difficult decision to run from threat and danger, changing the course
of her well-ordered life and, in turn, the life of the young man who
loved and lost her.

 

It
was a long trip back to Edisto Island, South Carolina, and the beach
house that shaped so much of Mary Helen Avery’s early life. Now her
mind flashed between anger and hurt over the difficult situation
she’d left behind at the job she loved.  Was she doing the
right thing to leave? Should she have stayed to fight? She hoped at
the quiet, beloved island she knew so well, she’d find the answers
she needed and peace from all this turmoil.

 

 

J.T.’s
heart took a familiar lurch when he saw the car with New Jersey
plates parked at the Avery’s beach house. Even after ten years, the
memory of Mary Helen Avery still tormented him.  Finding her on
the porch weeping lit old fires he thought long dead. Was he a fool
to hope for something more between them with all their problems of
the past? Probably so, but if she stayed long enough, he’d find one
more chance to try.

Reminiscent of The Snow Child and The Secret of Lost Stones, it’s painfully human, yet full of hope, unconditional love, and magic

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve

 

by
Angela Stevens

 

Genre:
Historical Fantasy

 

 

A
childless couple’s lives are changed forever by the miraculous
discovery of a little girl entombed in ice on the Langjökull
glacier.
 

 

1870:
A bleak Christmas Eve night is made all the more pitiful by the
recent death of a baby. Having buried five stillborn girls in shallow
graves next to the croft, Rebekka becomes captivated by a
storyteller’s tale of the Icelandic hidden people.

 

 

 

Finnur,
will do anything to restore his wife’s happiness, even if it means
encouraging her decline into madness. But when the impossible
fairytale turns into a reality, the couple’s impulsive decision to
foster the child from the ice, is met with fear and superstition, and
threatens the well-being of the whole farmstead.

 

 

 

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve is an enchanting and compelling story
of desperation and need. Reminiscent of The Snow Child and The Secret
of Lost Stones, it’s painfully human, yet full of hope,
unconditional love, and magic.

 

 

 

If
you enjoy the magical realism of Melissa Payne and the charming fairy
tale style of Ruth Hogan then you will fall in love with Angela
Stevens’s lyrical and emotional storytelling.
 

 

**Only
.99 cents until Dec 7th!!**

Angela
Stevens is an Amazon International Bestselling Romance Author. She
also writes Contemporary fantasy and magical realism under her pen
name Sadie Collins

 

Her
5 book debut series, Hockey Punk, is a sports romance series set
around her adopted town near DC and revolves around her favorite
sport of ice hockey. Writing in both contemporary romance and
contemporary fantasy genres, Angela portrays gritty characters with
emotionally charged plots and is not afraid to tackle difficult
social issues in her fiction. If you pick up one of her romances, you
may have to order an extra supply of tissues, but Angela Stevens will
always deliver you a HEA.

 

In
2020 Angela Stevens rebranded her Fantasy collection and put them
under a new pen name–Sadie Collins.

 

Sadie
Collins writes contemporary fantasy. The emphasis is on character and
emotion and she has a fascination with folklore and bending the what
ifs…

 

Her
six book Vargr Clan Series combines Lycan myth and Native American
lore.

 

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve is a new venture into a new genre, and
Angela and Sadie argued as to who should get their name on the front
cover. Ultimately, Angela won out, as she claimed that Sadie did not
exist when she first wrote the book. Sadie is still sulking, and at
some time in the future there may be a mutiny. In all honesty, this
book might need a third pen name, but it came down to the fact that
Angela already has more than she can handle without splitting her
personality further. If only Angela could pull off a stunt like
Finnboga in the story, and cleave herself in two, the ‘team’
could be twice as efficient.

Snippet:

 

Striding down the carpeted hallway to Suite 1455, Erin was suddenly aware that the man was right behind, his steps quiet but determined. 

“Excuse me?” she said, whipping around to confront him, senses on alert, placing her hand on the grip of her 9-mm Glock in her handbag. “Are you following me?”

“I’m beginning to wonder if you’re following me,” he said.

“That’s ridiculous. I’m in front of you. How could I possibly know which office you’re headed to?”

“Touché,” he said with an amused smile. “You must be a detective.”

“And you probably read too many crime novels,” she retorted, surprised at the sassy response coming out of her mouth. “Are you at the San Francisco FBI field office for research for a term paper?”

He gave her an amused smile, but there was a hint of danger behind his eyes while he assessed her. “Something like that.”  

“Maybe you shouldn’t have pressed that 13th incognito floor,” Erin suggested. “You’ll probably have little luck since visitors need an appointment to see any of the agents who occupy these offices.”

He pursed his lips and nodded. “I see. Thanks for the tip.”

Why did it seem like this too handsome dude was laughing at her?

His footsteps continued to trail her instead of turning down the intersecting hallway to the other wing of offices. 

Erin tried not to glare before she spun around on her heel, purposely ignoring him. 

When she reached FBI Supervisor Howell’s office, Erin pushed open the door and greeted the office manager. “Agent Steele here to see Supervisor Howell. I have an appointment.”

“Yes, he’s expecting you,” Laura Tidwell, the office manager said, punching a button on the intercom while she pressed a finger against the rim of her black-framed glasses. “Agent Steele has arrived, sir.”

A male voice that sounded like a truck filled with gravel said, “Send Steele in.”

Erin tried not to let her sweaty palms show as she crossed the room. A door closed behind her and she craned her neck to glance over her shoulder. 

The man who had shared the elevator with her was now in the FBI office. He had followed her!

A mysterious English stranger shows up at her homestead and sets everything she thought she knew about her world on end

Monday, December 14th, 2020

 

 

 

Sara Harris makes her home with her family of seven, which includes her romance novelesque husband and her five children. 
She holds her BA in history and is currently back in school seeking her BSN.

 

 

 

 

 

An Amish settlement. An English stranger. The Blizzard of 1888. Who can Rebekah trust when the line between the Amish and the English becomes blurred?
 
A sweet and gentle love blossoms between Rebekah Stoll and her childhood friend Joseph Graber, despite attempts by her saucy nemesis, Katie Knepp, to sway the young man’s affections her way. 
 
When Joseph hints at the promise of forever, Rebekah is positive she should say yes to his proposal – until a mysterious English stranger shows up at her homestead and sets everything she thought she knew about her world on end. 
 
 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Snippet:

 

Over the remaining two days of their trip, the wagon train of Amish families, moving south from Canada, only saw each other.
 
Elnora whispered to Heloise as they approached their final stop. “Not a single wagon filled with English people has passed.”
 
Heloise, however, was much too charmed with Rebekah to be bothered with watching for English wagons. “Such a good-natured baby!” Her voice was awestruck. “At this age, Joseph did nothing but cry.”
 
Turning her attention back to the baby, Elnora cupped Rebekah’s silken head in her palm and stroked the blonde wisps above her tiny ears. “And she has so much hair!” Elnora’s voice was equally awestruck.
 
Heloise narrowed her wise, blue eyes. “That means she will be healthy.”
 
“We’re home!” Samuel announced. “Wilkommen to Daviess County, Indiana Territory!”
 
Elnora plopped Rebekah into a quilt-lined basket. Her eyes welled as Samuel helped her from the wagon. “Oh Samuel, it looks just like Germany!”
 
He beamed. “So you are happy then?”
 
“I am so happy! Danke! What a beautiful place to raise a family. And there is ample wood for your woodworking -” Shifting, Elnora gestured wide with one arm toward the thick woods that ringed the clearing. Oak trees that seemed to scratch the floor of heaven stood tall and majestic, their leaves waving in the tender breeze. Shorter, wider trees blooming in varying shades of snowy white and blush pinks punctuated the deep greens and browns of the oaks, giving the entire area a magical feel.         Samuel’s large hand came to rest on her shoulder, disrupting her gracious spiel.
 
“Dear Wife, I will go in to Montgomery tomorrow to find an English family to take the child. It will be best for everyone if she is with her own kind.”
 
Elnora sucked in a hard breath and willed the sudden fringe of tears not to spill onto her cheeks. She held Samuel’s gaze. There she saw the same dull ache she felt beneath her ribs.
 
With a calming breath, the threat of tears subsided and Elnora’s face softened. She patted her husband’s hand. “If it is best for Rebekah, then you must do as you will,” she agreed. The tugging on the tender ends of her shattered heart, however, didn’t concur.
