A second chance for Joy

While recovering at a remote cabin, Dr. Simon Walsh stumbles across Cara Amos. Injured and left for dead, Cara is harboring dark secrets. Yet Simon can't help falling for his mysterious patient. As her memory returns and her injuries fade under his gentle care, he vows to help her find her missing daughter.

At The Lemonade Stand shelter, managing director Lila McDaniels is helping Cara's estranged father, Edward Mantle, bond with his traumatized granddaughter, Joy. And his feelings extend well beyond gratitude.

Bringing this family together seems impossible… Luckily, Christmas is the season of miracles.

 

A healing opportunity! If you read the previous book in this series (For Joy’s Sake), you will quickly pick up on the fact that this is a direct continuation of the on-going plot of that story. I felt like the dual plot of this book was somewhat distracting. I guess it was meant to make it a more stand-alone by letting the reader in on what had happened in the past and was on-going with additional characters than the main two of this particular romance, but I think I would have gotten more enjoyment out of it if it had just been a concentration of Simon and Cara and then in the end the reunification of the story line would have happened. None-the-less, I was happy read the completion of this mystery, and I enjoyed Simon & Cara’s relationship a lot!

Doctor Simon Walsh is on leave and staying in a deserted cabin in Nevada when he stumbles across a woman left for dead by her abuser. He manages to get her to his house and sets out to find out what happened to her and see if he can tend to her wounds enough to have her on the mend.

Cara Amos has a spotty memory but the things she is remembering from what happened to her is scaring her! She has no clue that her missing daughter is actually forging a connection with her own estranged father at The Lemonade Stand in Santa Raquel, CA. Will she be able to remember the details of her attack before danger gets to her daughter?

Santa is coming to New York!

Snow is falling, excitement is high and the delicious scent of chocolate drifts along Fifth Avenue – the Candied Apple Café is ready for Christmas! And no one is busier than publicist Iona Summerlin. With so much to do, she doesn’t have time to think about men, dating, or the fact her last boyfriend ditched her for her brother… Relationships are off the menu!

Hotel boss Mads Eriksson is not looking forward to the first Christmas since losing his wife. His six-year-old daughter Sofia has lost her belief in Christmas magic along with her mother, and he has no idea what to do. But an unusually festive business meeting at the Candied Apple – and meeting the beautiful Iona – starts to defrost Mads’ frozen heart, and suddenly life seems full of light and sparkle again.

If only they dare to believe, maybe all their Christmas dreams will come true!

 

The future is bleak until a ray of sunshine enters their world! A story of adjusting to life after loss … and embracing the goodness that comes around even though you don’t think you’re ready! The characters are fairly well developed and it’s easy to get wrapped up in their story!

Hotel owner Mads Eriksson is not looking forward to his first Christmas without his wife, but he’s even more concerned about how his six year old daughter seems to have totally lost her Christmas spirit since losing her mother. When a business meeting brings them in contact with an elf-like bundle of holiday cheer, Mads can’t help but be drawn to the dashing Iona and how she seems to connect with his little girl!

Iona Summerlin is running around like crazy with all that is going for the holidays at the Candied Apple Cafe. She doesn’t have time to think about men and relationships … but a when a handsome father and his sad little girl cross her path, she can’t resist taking them under her wing!

Smitten with the boss! With her debut novel, Therese Beharrie takes us on a journey of overcoming past hardships in order to find their forever! This book had a fairly strong cast with good development. The conflict drug on a little and it could have done with a little more passion in their journey towards happily ever after, but it kept me wanting the rest of the story and overall was a enjoying read! Strong first showing!

When hotel tour guide Callie McKenzie gets stuck in the elevator with a stranger, she’s a bit thrown.  She’s not a fan of small spaces so she starts to freak and the sexy stranger helps calm her down, setting off sizzling sparks between them. Too bad getting rescued reveals that he’s the new boss they’ve all been dreading the arrival of!

The White Sandy Reservation needs a doctor, and Madeline Mitchell needs to do a little good in the world. It seems like a perfect fit, until she meets the medicine man, Rebel Runs Fast. As far as Madeline can tell, Rebel’s sole mission is to convince her patients that modern medicine can’t help them. And the fact that he makes her heart race every time he looks at her only irritates her more.

Rebel swore off the white man’s world–and women–years ago. But he’s never met a woman like Dr. Mitchell. She doesn’t speak the language, understand the customs, or believe he’s anything more than a charlatan–but she stays, determined to help his people. He tries to convince himself that his tribe doesn’t need her, but when patients start getting sick with strange symptoms, he realizes that he needs her more than ever.

Note: This book was previously published as Mystic Cowboy

 

They come from two different worlds, but it doesn’t take long for them both to be yearning for forever! The setting is rustic with an underlying sense of despair as an illness runs rampant through the reservation. They race against time to figure out what it is and how to help the tribe while at the same time easing into a relationship that they both realize may never be able to work out. The core characters have a steamy hot connection and their supporting cast help complete the homey feel to the cast and keep us wanting to learn more about them in the series future. I really enjoyed it!

Doctor Madeline Mitchell might not fit in on the White Sandy Reservation, but she’s determined to be the help this tribe needs in medical care. Many have come and gone before her, so people are skeptical about the new white doctor. They have more faith in their own medicine man, and he’s not one to blindly let them accept her way of medicine.

Rebel Runs Fast is keeping her on her toes for sure. He’s friendly enough and helpful when need be, but there are certain things that he makes sure his tribe refuses to let her do in treating them. He knows she doesn’t exactly believe in his ways, but they are both going to have to overcome their stubborn attitudes and work together when the mystery illness becomes more dire!

The Christmas they never had.

James Cade has one priority: keep the family ranch running smoothly in the wake of his younger brother's death. With Jesse's ex, Sofia Gallardo, and her young son, Javi, stranded at Cade Ranch over Christmas, this task just got a lot harder. The longer Sofia and Javi stay, the harder it is to imagine the ranch without them. James couldn't save his brother from his inner demons, but he can give his nephew a secure future. Maybe more—if he can figure out how to trust Sofia, and stop feeling like he's betraying Jesse. Because trying to stop thinking about beautiful, determined Sofia is impossible.

 

A heart wrenching story of love, forgiveness and redemption! Sometimes the hardest forgiveness to give is to yourself … and watching it occur is a beautiful thing. James carries a guilt no one else can understand … until he meets Sofia and learns of her own self-doubt. Apart they are haunted, but together they can see the strength in forgiving themselves and honoring Jesse’s memory the only way he would have wanted. This story delves into a touchy subject and brings us two very different sides of the picture. We learn the innocent family’s side and how it can tear them apart to have to doubt their loved one … and we learn the agitators side and how they hope and pray every day for answers that their body just isn’t willing to give them. A very powerful message … and a sweet story of coming out on the other side!

James Cade would do anything for his family, and when they are all blindsided by his little brother’s death, he steps up to take charge and keep them all afloat while their hearts are crumbling. When a surprise shows up at the ranch when they least expect it, he has to stay on guard and protect his family from whatever deceit may be hiding within … but as his heart starts to defrost and warm up to the interlopers, he might be in bigger trouble than he thought!

Sofia Gallardo only intended to make a quick stop through Carbondale, Colorado, but when she finds herself stranded at Cade Ranch with her son, she hesitantly accepts their help and hopes to give her son the best Christmas he’s ever had! Javi might no longer have his father, but letting him get to know his extended family might be the next best thing.

Excerpt

Aunt Doreen takes a cake knife from the drawer, clears her throat and the two sisters squint at each other. My body tenses. This body language usually precedes some unanticipated concession by me. Busying myself by returning the coffee tin to the cabinet, I turn to escape the kitchen before…

“Cole.”

Shit. Not fast enough. “Yes, Mom.”

Mom starts, “We’ve been talking.”

I open my mouth, but Aunt Doreen jumps in before I can get anything out. “We know that you’re a grown man now, and you’re starting a high-profile career.”

“But I don’t want my son to have a bad-boy reputation,” Mom blurts out. She cups my cheek. “I didn’t raise you to be wild.”

Her sister moves in for the kill, placing her hand on my forearm for a brief moment. “Please be careful. Don’t get caught up in the lifestyle you’ll be offered.”

Mom drops her hand. “Promise me you won’t become one of those out-of-control stars we hear about on the news.”

My heart races. I need a cigarette. I’m flanked by two of the strongest women I’ve ever known, and their concern is both touching and intrusive. But it’s born from love. I glance from one pair of green eyes to the next and swallow.

Mom presses. “Promise me.”

I’m not giving up the perks of my soon-to-be-lifestyle—women and parties being at the top of the list. I’ve earned this. However, the set of their jaws tells me I’m not getting out of this kitchen without giving them my word.

“Promise,” she repeats.

I gauge the distance to the dining room. Too far. Mom crosses her arms, and Aunt Doreen follows suit.

Rubbing my hands up and down my legs, I mumble, “Okay, fine, I promise. I won’t get a bad rep.”

Dazzling smiles greet my capitulation. They pick up the dessert and dishes and leave me in the kitchen wondering how the hell I’m going to both honor and get around my vow.

Author Bio

For as long as Arell Rivers can remember, she has been lost in a book. During her senior year in college, she picked up a Danielle Steel novel … and instantly was hooked on romance.

Arell started writing her first novel because the characters were screaming at her to do so. The story started coming out in her dreams and attacking her in the shower, so she took to the computer to shut them up. But they kept talking.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Arell has what some may call a “checkered past.” Prior to discovering her passion for writing romance, she practiced law, was a wedding and event planner and even dabbled in marketing. Arell lives with a very supportive husband and two mischievous cats. When not in her writing cave, Arell is found making dinner in the crock pot, working out with Shaun T or hitting the beach.

Arell is a member of the New Jersey chapter of Romance Writers of America.

Keep a song in your heart this holiday season…

Music teacher Ella Baker’s plate is already full. But when single dad Beckett McKinley’s wild twin boys need help preparing a Christmas song for their father, Ella agrees on one condition: they teach her to ride a horse. She’s hoping that’ll help mend her strained relationship with her rancher father; it certainly has nothing to do with the crush that’s lingered since her one and only date with Beck.

It isn’t disinterest spurring Beck to keep his distance—if anything, the spark is too strong, with Ella reminding him of his ex-wife. Soon what started as an innocent arrangement is beginning to feel a lot like family. But with the holidays approaching, Beck and Ella will have to overcome past hurts if they want to keep each other warm this Christmas…

 

With that special voice that we adore, RaeAnne Thayne never fails to wrap a cowboy around our heart and reel us in! She writes endearing characters who have overcome loss and tragedy to go on to thrive and find love. This story brings us a single dad with a set of rowdy twin sons that could try the patience of a saint … but their teacher happens to adore them … and their daddy!

Ella Baker has been back in Pine Gulch for over a year now, and is still trying her best to mend her strained relationship with her ailing father. She wishes he could see her as more than just the city upbringing she had with her mother. She’s enjoying her job teaching music to the kids of the town, but she wants so much more.

Neighboring rancher Beckett McKinley can’t deny he likes seeing Ella around town and working with his son’s for the upcoming Christmas pageant, but she reminds him a little too much of his former wife who hated ranch living and wanted the excitement from the city life she was used to. When his boys agree to teach her to ride a horse in exchange for her helping them prepare a song surprise for him for Christmas, he finds himself enjoying her company around his ranch more than he should!

WHEN YOU PLAY FOR LOVE, YOU PLAY FOR KEEPS

Stella Davenport wasn't made for small-town life. Sure, teaching ballet in Blanco Valley, Colorado, is great, but she longs for the chance to perform in a big city. Stella swore she'd never let anything get in the way of her dream-until sexy, broad-shouldered Brandon West walks back into her life. Stella is determined to resist him, even if arguing with Brandon is sexier than any foreplay.

For Brandon, it's always been just him and his son, Matt. Knowing that love only leads to heartbreak, he isn't looking to expand his family any time soon. Stella, with her long, gorgeous legs and infectious laugh, is a breath of fresh air he didn't even know he'd been missing. But when she's offered her dream job in Chicago, will he be willing to put his heart on the line?

 

Chemistry abounds between two unlikely people! A sassy connection between a single dad and the local ballet teacher makes for a really fun read! They bounce witty comebacks off each other every chance they get, and when they finally decide to give in to the attraction they feel, sparks ignite! The characters are easy to like, and although the romance is slow to happen, it’s a nice build up throughout. I enjoyed their story!

Stella Davenport never expected to find herself teaching ballet in a small town in Colorado at this point in her life. She craves the big city dancing lifestyle she used to have in Chicago and hopes her dream of being invited back to choreograph will one day come true. Living here with her Mom crowding her space is slowly driving her insane!

Brandon West feels like he’s spent his entire life looking out for his son, and he’s not about to start now just because he’s soon heading off to college. His one chance on love came back to bite him good, so he isn’t too up on trying that game again … but he can’t deny he’s drawn to Stella in a way he hasn’t felt in a long time … maybe ever! Can two wounded hearts find a way to overcome their obstacles to be together?

To choose between justice and love

There's a burglar on the loose in the beach town of Wallis Point, and undercover detective Lyndsay Fairfax is pursuing every lead. Even the one that takes her straight to the brother of handsome marine veteran John Reilly. John, whose lively restaurant is the heart of the town, is the first person Lyndsay has connected with since her husband's death. But she can't tell him who she really is, and she can't let his brother slide if he's the culprit. Lyndsay has to figure out how to do the right thing without also losing the man who is so right for her…

 

Love when she least expects it! She’s not looking to have chemistry with a man who may have family involved in the crime she’s investigating, but that’s exactly what she gets! The plot is intriguing and keeps us guessing from the start trying to figure out who and what is really going on around there. The characters are well developed and though the romance is a tad light, the story flows well and leads to a great conclusion!

Police officer Lyndsay Fairfax certainly isn’t looking to make a romantic connection while she’s on her first undercover assignment in Wallis Point, but she finds it none-the-less! In pursuing leads on a burglary ring, she poses as a tradesmen to get in with the contractors around the area who know the ins and outs of the area houses. That takes her to the local hangout a lot … and face to face with a sexy brooding stranger!

Former marine John Reilly never envisioned himself helping run the family restaurant and bar, yet circumstances and tragedy led to this very place. When a lead puts his little brother on Lyn’s radar with the break-ins, John doesn’t have a clue and continues to believe they are starting a possible relationship. When she is left with no alternative than to turn over the info she knows, will they be able to salvage any part of their friendship … and more … once all is said and done?
