The Tycoon’s Make-Believe Fiancée

By Elizabeth Lennox / Genre: Romance, Contemporary Fiction / Rating: 3.8 out of 5 stars (225 reviews)

The Tycoon's Make-Believe Fiancée

It’s wonderful to be engaged! Or at least it would be if he actually had a fiancée…

Royston is reunited with his sister at last – and she’s married and expecting! He is thrilled, but so caught off guard when she questions him about his love life that he makes up a story about a non-existent fiancée, just to protect her gentle heart. Now he has to produce a fiancée in a matter of hours when they meet for dinner!

It had always been Miranda’s priority to avoid the CEO of her company, Royston Carmichael, at all costs. He might be sexy, rich, and powerful, but he was also intimidating, arrogant and unreasonably demanding. Which is why she was unhappy at being caught submitting a monthly financial report at 12:15, when it was due no later than 12pm.

When Royston finds her in his office submitting a report after the deadline, he questions her and is impressed with her financial knowledge, not to mention her long legs and enchanting eyes. He quickly decides she’s just right for the role of fake fiancée. She’s beautiful, smart, can think on her feet, and she has a spark that captures his attention in all the right ways.

Will she accept his real proposal to be his faux bride to be, and will their act become more than that?

By J.A. Schneider / Genre: Medical, Mystery & Thrillers / Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (153 reviews)

EMBRYO

“Maria Moran’s first inkling of trouble was the coppery taste in her mouth. It came suddenly, a rushing whoosh of something that made her gag, and when she reached to wipe her mouth, her hand came away smeared with blood.”

So begins this first EMBRYO medical thriller about a young intern, Jill Raney, determined to investigate tragedies and terror at a famous fertility and genetic engineering hospital. When two pregnant women die and a fetus is delivered with severe chromosomal abnormalities, Jill’s superiors – including handsome, smitten-with-her resident David Levine – insist there’s no common link.

But her suspicions deepen with the grotesque murder near the hospital of another pregnant woman – her belly drained of amniotic fluid. And when a woman miscarries in the hospital and then disappears, Jill frantically searches for her – following a terrifying path that seems to link all the victims: Is someone playing with life…and the structures of human life itself?

An unforgettable tale of suspense with a shocking denouement, Embryo takes you deep into the mind of malignant genius.

Godhunter (The Godhunter)

By Amy Sumida / Genre: Fantasy, Romance / Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars (56 reviews)

Godhunter (The Godhunter)

You think you’ve got some bad date stories? My last date ended with me almost being sacrificed to a Hawaiian war god. Then I found out that all the gods are real. Only they aren’t really gods, they’re Atlanteans. Yep, that Atlantis.
They screwed up their perfect island(and sank it) and then had the nerve to move in on our territory. As if that wasn’t bad enough, they told us normal humans that they were gods. And we believed them. Why? Cause they did really cool things. So we sacrificed to them and they took that energy and used it to make themselves even more powerful.
Then a little thing called Science came along and we stopped believing in the supernatural. We stopped sacrificing to the gods. They lost their power source and that pissed them off royally. So they started thinking up new ways to get sacrifice from us. Like starting wars. They manipulate us into killing each other and guess who gets that energy? That’s right, they do. They get stronger with each one of us who dies.
You think I’m crazy, right? Yeah, that’s pretty much why I don’t go shouting it from the rooftops. It’s also why I’ve taken it upon myself to stop them in any way I can. I may not be some kick ass superhero but I happen to be a witch, so at least I’ve got magic on my side. I promise you, I won’t stop fighting until I free us from the manipulations of the gods. Not even for a hot Viking god who wields a big hammer. No matter how good he looks in his leather pants.
My name is Vervain Lavine and I’m the Godhunter.

He’s lost and he thinks leaving her and all of Oregon in his rear-view is what he needs to find himself, dragging her heart right along with him as he goes.

However, the sisters’ wealthy father has made one hard and fast rule: elder sister must marry first, before the younger can even start courting. Unfortunately for poor Betsy, and for the men who want to court her, her older sister, Cate, doesn’t have any suitors–until Pete comes to town, that is.

Though he finds both sisters attractive, something about Cate’s feisty demeanor appeals to him. Soon the other bachelors in the district convince Pete to court Cate. She hardly seems receptive to his overtures, though. Instead, she’s immediately suspicious of his interest.

Six Months in Montana (Montana Sweet Western Romance Series)

Molly Bishop loves living in Manhattan and managing a boutique luxury hotel. She’s about to be promoted to her dream job of General Manager, the role she’s been striving for her entire career.

There’s only one thing standing in her way.

The will of her childhood friend, Christian Ford’s grandfather. She hasn’t even seen Christian in over ten years, but a recent run-in with his grandfather during a rare visit home, resulted in a new condition to the will. Christian will only inherit the ranch he’s been running and the real estate development business that he has expanded, if he marries Molly and stays married for at least six months.

This is what I would call a cozy romance, it’s romantic and sweet and is set in a small fictional town about 30 miles from Bozeman, MT. Warning, if you prefer your stories with the bedroom doors wide open and the windows steamed up, you may be disappointed.

I love to cook and try new recipes and if you do too, you may want to check out the recipe I included at the end of the book, for Lazy Lobster Casserole, the dish that Molly serves her guests at the Rose Cottage Inn’s first wine dinner. It’s a recipe I know by heart and have made a million times and is great for special occasions. It’s a holiday tradition in our family to have it every Christmas Eve.
