Jerome Mayer is tall, dark and dangerous to know. Normally, Gemma would run a mile but with a freshly broken heart maybe it's time for this good girl to take a walk on the wild side.

3. Meeting Mr. Right Online by Cindy K. Green

When an alarming revelation is exposed, it could be Lucinda's undoing or it might be exactly what she was looking for.

4. Temporary Intrigue by Judy Huston
Luckily for Dimity Forbes, it’s not really an issue that she has made a disastrous first impression on Josh Williams. Romance is currently running a poor third on her priority list - or is it?
Luckily for Josh, he can see that this wacky, accident-prone blonde is totally the wrong type for him. Even if it seems that some of those mishaps might not be quite so accidental after all, it’s nothing to do with him, and he’ll take good care to stay away from the temptation she represents. Or will he?

5. Table for Two by Meg Allison (A Harris Grove Story)
Sandra Larsen and David Jenkins have nothing in common—except that their best friends just got married.

Can Katelyn find the truth before she loses him for good?

A woman with a past looking for a future, a son she doesn’t know, and a man she has no reason to trust thrown together in the devil-may-care heyday of the Erie Canal.
That’s where Molly Ryan finds herself when she comes out of prison after serving time for a crime she didn’t commit and takes a job as cook on an Irish line boat, hoping to regain her son.
The very last thing she expected was to fall in love with big-shouldered Captain Danny Brennan along the way.
