SYNOPSIS:

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Devney Perry comes a small town, fake relationship romance.

Eloise Eden’s pride and joy is her family’s hotel in Quincy, Montana. Her lifelong dream is to own The Eloise Inn. All she has to do is prove to her parents that she’s the epitome of responsible. That her days of being duped and making reckless decisions are history. She’s so close she can taste it.

Until after one weekend in Las Vegas, she comes home married to a stranger.

Jasper must have put her under a spell with those soul-deep eyes because after a single night together, they woke up husband and wife. Her only hope is to keep this marriage a secret until it’s annulled. Then she’ll pretend it never happened.

Except Jasper begs her to stay married. To fake it for three months so she can accompany him to a wedding. Maybe she’s lost her mind to agree. But her brooding husband seems desperate. It’s only three months, right? Then she’ll say goodbye to Jasper Vale, and with any luck, hello to her new hotel.

REVIEW:

Eloise Eden and Jasper Vale learn the hard way that not everything that happens in Vegas stays there. Book four in the Edens series may have started in Vegas, but like the rest of the series, Jasper Vale is set in the quaint Montana town of Quincy. The Edens are Quincy town royalty, and Eloise is the people-pleasing, hard-working member of the family hotel, The Eloise. Jasper and Eloise’s fake marriage was a heart-string-puller. Jasper is Eloise’s brother-in-law, Foster’s professional trainer. She’s in Vegas for the weekend with her sisters to watch Foster’s UFC fight when she meets him. One thing leads to another, and a drunken hookup slash wedding ensues.

Eloise’s dream is to own the family hotel that she’s been managing for years, but after a managerial misstep with a former employee ends in a lawsuit, she’s been working double-time to regain her parents’ trust in her abilities. A surprise marriage to a stranger during a Vegas trip isn’t exactly going to win their approval, and she’s hoping to undo this entanglement before they can catch on to it. Jasper follows her to Quincy, and the two of them decide to make a temporary go of things. The problem is that their attraction didn’t end in Vegas, and the more time they spend together, the closer—and hotter—things become. Lines become blurred as fake is starting to feel pretty darn real.

I really love small town romances, especially when they’re centered on a big family, and The Edens series is totally sating that craving for me. Jasper Vale was full of angsty emotion, sizzling chemistry and a heart-tugging, heat-filled, complicated love story. As usual with Devney Perry, the romance is wrapped up in an engaging plot full of interesting side characters, a couple twists and turns and a splash of suspense. Jasper Vale was an unputdownable pleasure to read, and I devoured this steamy, swoon-worthy romance in a single sitting. Jasper Vale was a wonderful addition to this fantastic series, and I cannot wait for the next book in the series. Five smooches from me for Jasper Vale by Devney Perry!

Scroll down for an extended excerpt!

 

 

Can a second chance at love be everything they wished for?

 

 

With her signature charm and sense of humor, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting creates a novel about love, family, and second chances in Make a Wish

Ever have a defining life moment you wish you could do over? Harley Spark has one. The time she almost kissed the widowed father of the toddler she nannied for. It was so bad they moved across the state and she never saw them again.

Fast forward seven years and she’s totally over it. At least she thinks she is. Until Gavin Rhodes and his adorable now nine-year-old daughter, Peyton, reappear at a princess-themed birthday party hosted by Spark House, Harley’s family’s event hotel. Despite trying to avoid the awkwardness of the situation, she can’t help but notice how unbearably sexy he looks in a tutu.  Add to that a spontaneous hives breakout, and it’s clear she’s not even remotely over the mortification of her egregious error all those years ago.

Except Gavin seems oblivious to her inner turmoil. So much so that he suggests they get together for lunch. For Peyton’s sake, of course. It’s the perfect opportunity to heal old wounds. Or it could just reopen them. This is one of those times Harley wishes she could see the future…

EXCERPT:

PROLOGUE

A FUTURE TOO DISTANT TO REALIZE

HARLEY

Age Twenty

My eyes snap open at the despondent cry lighting up the baby monitor. It’s the third time Peyton has woken tonight. She’s teething and she has a cold, the combination of the two making her restless and uncomfortable.

I lie there for a few seconds, waiting to see if the cry is isolated or she’s actually awake and needs comfort. A few seconds later another cry filters through the baby monitor, and then again, more insistent this time. I toss my covers off and my feet hit the cold floor. I grab my housecoat and shrug into it as I rush down the hall, wanting to get to her before the cries reach their highest pitch and wake her father as well.

Gavin’s been burning the candle at both ends, work taking up more of his time than he’d like, and with Peyton not sleeping particularly well this week, he’s been tired. If I can save him another broken night’s sleep, I can also save myself from having to drive something to his office because he’s forgotten it on the kitchen table.

He steps into the hallway just as I reach Peyton’s room. He’s wearing nothing but boxer shorts and a thin white T-shirt, his lean, toned body throwing shadows on the wall and floor.

He blinks blearily at me and runs a hand through his sleep-messed hair. “I can handle this.” His voice is gruff and thick with exhaustion.

“You have to be up in two hours. She’s teething and cranky. I can take care of it.”

He glances at the door and then at me, teeth tugging at the skin of his bottom lip before he blows out a breath. “She’s been up three times already.”

I pat him on the arm. “I know. And you have to function tomorrow. I can take a nap when she does. I’ve got this. Go back to bed.”

“Thanks, Harley.” He gives me a weary smile and turns around, disappearing into his bedroom.

As I rush into Peyton’s bedroom, she’s standing in her crib with her arms outstretched, stiff and shaking. When she sees me, her wailing hits the high notes and she stomps her little feet.

“I’m right here, sweetie. You must be so uncomfortable.” I pick her up out of her crib and she snuggles into my neck, sniffling and crying. Her cheeks are red and her fingers go straight into her mouth. At eighteen months, we’re in the thick of another round of teething, and this time it’s her canines, which are proving to be particularly uncomfortable. And I thought the molar stage was rough.

I carry her over to the rocking chair and cuddle her, singing lullabies until she finally falls asleep again. I don’t know how long she’ll be down before she wakes up again, so once I have her settled in her crib, I make a trip to the kitchen to grab a teething ring from the freezer.

I stop when I reach the threshold. Gavin is sitting at the island with a glass in front of him. It’s mostly dark, the only illumination comes from the light above the stove. His broad back expands and contracts on a sigh, and he drops his head, fingers pushing through his thick, dark hair. He laces them behind his neck and makes a despondent sound.

I don’t know whether I should leave him and let him have a moment of peace, or offer him comfort.

This week has been difficult for him. Peyton just turned a year and a half, and with each milestone, it’s another reminder of how long it has been since his wife died. Add in the sleepless nights, the long work hours, his parents still both working full-time and unable to offer much in the way of babysitting support, and his in-laws in Boulder, it’s no wonder he’s struggling.

I overheard him on the phone with his mother-in-law before he took it off speaker phone. She doesn’t feel it’s appropriate that I’m the woman practically raising her granddaughter. I’m too young to be taking care of Peyton. I spend too much time with them as a family. It didn’t sit right with her that I was solely responsible for Peyton while Gavin was at work. I might be twenty, but I have always loved working with children. I took the babysitting course as soon as I turned eleven and started sitting for family and friends right away. While other teenagers went out with friends on weekends, I spent them taking care of little kids while their parents went on dates or out with friends. And with over half a child development degree under my belt, I’m more than qualified to be a nanny. Besides, I’ve been through more than a lot of people my age, lost more and survived.

My feet make the decision before my head can weigh in, and my heart is already in agreement with my actions as I cross the kitchen and head for Gavin.

I purposely step on the board that creaks, and Gavin’s head shoots up. My heart clenches at his expression. Shock, dismay, and embarrassment pass through his eyes, but the pain I see reflected back at me is what stops me from changing course. I bridge the gap between us and settle a hand on his shoulder. “What can I do to help?”

He scrubs a hand over his tired face. “You’re already doing too much.” His chocolate eyes lift to meet mine. “I’m putting too much on you.”

I shake my head. “You’re not.”

“I am. You’re only taking Sundays off. You should be going out on weekends with your friends, going to house parties, doing what college kids do.”

I don’t understand where this is coming from, or why all of a sudden Gavin is worried about my social life. “I’m more into Disney movies, arts and crafts, baking cupcakes, and making popcorn than I am going to house parties.”

“I just mean you deserve to have a life. I need to cut back my hours. I need to be here more.” His voice is low and gruff. “I should be here for Peyton. It’s not fair for me to keep piling it all on you. You’re too young to be handling all of this.”

“I would tell you if it was too much. And you are here for Peyton. You’re always home for dinner, and you make sure you’re here for bedtime. Sure, you work extra hours once she’s in bed, but that’s not unusual. Especially since you’re helping run a family business. You’re doing the best you can, and that’s all anyone can ask for.”

“But is it enough?” He shakes his head. “I feel like I’m in purgatory, Harley. I feel like I’m stuck in the past, and all I want to do is be able to move forward but I can’t. I don’t know how to do this on my own.”

“But you don’t have to do it on your own, Gavin. You have your family and you have me.”

“I don’t know how to let go of this guilt.” His face crumples and he scrubs a hand over it.

“The guilt over what? What do you feel guilty about?” We don’t usually talk like this. Mostly he asks about Peyton, how her day was, and the milestones she’s reaching. At dinner he’ll sometimes ask about my courses, but it’s all surface conversation. I know it’s been a struggle for him to move past the loss of his wife. While she’s never a topic of conversation, she’s memorialized everywhere in this house.

He shakes his head. “I can’t . . . I just want it to stop hurting all the time.”

I settle my hand on top of his and squeeze. “I’m here. You can talk to me. I understand what it means to lose someone you love. I know the hurt doesn’t go away. We manage, we adapt, we develop armor, but we don’t stop missing them and we don’t stop loving them.”

“Is there no peace?” His expression breaks my heart.

I don’t know how to help him with anything other than the offer of comfort. So I do something I normally never would when it comes to one of my charges and their parents. I wrap my arms around his shoulders and hug him.

He stiffens for a moment, and I’m about to release him and apologize for overstepping, until he folds his arms around me and pulls me tightly against him. The sound he makes holds so much torment.

“It’s okay, Gavin. I’m here. I know it’s hard.” We’ve always kept it professional between us. Sure, I may be living under the same roof, but my job is to care for the sweet little angel that is sleeping down the hall. But tonight is different.

In this moment, I feel like I’m more than the nanny. Right now, it’s as though I’ve become part of this family.

I understand what he’s going through. Maybe I don’t know what it’s like to lose your partner before you’ve even had a chance to really and truly start your life together. But I know what it’s like to lose both of my parents. They died when I was twelve, leaving me and my older sisters, Avery and London, orphaned. Our grandmother stepped in to raise us, but those Mom-and-Dad-shaped holes in my heart can never be filled. There will always be two empty spaces in my chest where they used to be.

Slowly he loosens his hold on me. “I need to get a grip,” he mutters, voice thick with emotion.

Goose bumps rise along my skin when his fingertips skim my arm as he drops his hand.

“We all have difficult days. I’m always here. Whenever you need me.” My heart is beating so hard, it feels like it could crack my rib cage. I can’t seem to find it in me to step back, to break this connection. The longing to feel needed like this clouds my judgment. The intimacy of the moment making it difficult to separate my desire to comfort from other, new feelings I don’t know what to do with.

I lean in until I can feel his sharp exhale against my lips. My stomach flips and my muscles clench in anticipation.

But whatever spell I’m under breaks before I connect.

Gavin’s hands wrap around my shoulders and he pushes me back, not forceful but firmly. “Harley, no.”

Peyton’s shrill cry is a bucket of ice water over my head and a welcome distraction from my complete horror and mortification. I rush down the hall to Peyton’s room and scoop her up like a shield. Panic takes over, fear and guilt swirl in my gut and make it tough to swallow. What did I do? How could I be so stupid?

“I’ve got it, Harley. You can go back to bed.” Gavin holds out his arms, his expression flat and remote.

I can’t say no. He’s my boss. He’s her father. I’m just the nanny.

And I almost kissed him. I would have, if he hadn’t stopped me. He’d been in need of comfort, and I’d taken advantage of that weak moment. Shame and disbelief make me want to disappear, to sink into the ground, to hide from my own mistake.

Uncomfortable, awkward silence follows as I pass her over, but Peyton’s cries grow louder, maybe because she senses the disquiet between us.

“Go to bed, Harley.” Gavin’s voice is tight and clipped.

I move around him, unable to meet his gaze now. I feel numb, as if my emotions have been dipped in liquid nitrogen. Frozen. And one flick will shatter me.

As I step into the hall, Peyton screams, arms stretched out to me. “Momma! Mummy!”

I pause, a sick feeling rolling through my stomach and creeping up my throat, and turn to see Gavin’s reaction. She’s said it before, at the park I sometimes take her to with a few other nannies in the area, but it’s never happened in front of Gavin before. I usually just shake my head and say, “No, not Momma, it’s Harley” to her because she doesn’t know the difference. To her, it’s just words she hears the other kids say.

But his eyes flash with ire, and he gives me a hard, cold look that makes me want to disappear all over again.

“That’s Harley, not your mommy. Daddy’s got you.” He shuts the door with a quiet click, and I stand there, my heart in my throat.

I go back to my room, tears of embarrassment and guilt falling. I don’t know what to do. How to fix this. I spend the rest of the night pacing the floor, trying to figure out how I’m going to apologize. That I didn’t mean to overstep. That I have no idea what came over me. That it will never happen again.

A few days later, just when I’m ready to tell him how sorry I am, Gavin tells me they’re moving to Boulder to be closer to his in-laws.

And when they do, I don’t hear from Gavin or Peyton ever again.

REVIEW:

I’ve really enjoyed the entire Spark House series, and Helena Hunting capped it off with a heart-string puller in Make A Wish.  A second-chance romance featuring a widowed single father and his former nanny, there was a lot of emotion packed into this story. Gavin lost his wife during childbirth, and grief-stricken and full of guilt, he hires 19-year-old Harley to be the live-in nanny to his infant daughter. Things are going well, Harley loves baby Peyton and is happy in her job. She’s practically a member of the family, and as such, she sees Gavin’s struggle and pain, and her heart aches for him. An awkward misread of the situation is the precursor to Gavin and Peyton’s relocation to be closer to his wife’s parents. Eight years later, Harley is the host of a princess party at Spark House, her family’s boutique hotel, and Peyton and Gavin are guests.

Gavin wanted desperately to be in a relationship with Harley, but his grief and guilt were constant stumbling blocks. Harley was patient, kind and loving, and I absolutely loved how she was a source of support to him but didn’t hesitate to call him out when needed. Peyton was a show-stealing little sweetheart, and her and Harley’s relationship was one of my favorite parts of this story.

Make A Wish was full of feels and fiery chemistry, Gavin and Harley’s hard-fought love story was as heart-warming as it was heart-wrenching. There was a lot of pain to sift through in this story, but the underlying hope and all-consuming love in it were addictive and captured my heart. I loved this series, these sisters and their stories. Make A Wish by Helena Hunting get 4.5 smooches from me!

Cover Design:  LETITIA HASSER, RBA DESIGN
Photographer:  MARTIN TRAYNOR
Model:  CHRISTIAN GANON
Release Date:  February 27, 2023

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes a friends-to-lovers story spanning more than a decade…

At first, I thought I’d hate spending the summer with Archie Remington—the conceited son of my parents’ friends.

What I knew about Archie: he was gorgeous, pre-law, and had always treated me like I didn’t exist when we were younger.

When our families bought a house together on an island in Maine, he and I were forced to share a bathroom.

The boy I remembered was now a full-grown man—but with the same attitude.

After a rough start, Archie and I unexpectedly started getting along one day and eventually became friends. We shared secrets and bonded during our morning jogs. I discovered that Archie had a wild spirit and that he struggled to conform to his father’s expectations.

Things were cool until I had to go and ruin it, getting drunk one night, and blurting out my fantasy—involving him.

I took it back, but it was too late. Archie had heard me loud and clear.

After that, we never quite knew how to toe the line.

When that summer came to an abrupt and shocking end, I headed back to college, unsure if anything would ever be the same again.

Across the miles over the years, he and I stayed in touch as friends, but fate and timing always kept us from becoming more.

You know the saying: If two people are meant to be, they’ll find their way back to each other?

Let’s just say Archie came back into my life in a way I would’ve never expected.

And this time, my heart would really be put to the test.

I’ve got a list of people I absolutely don’t ever want to be stuck with on a boat, or a plane, or a train, and it starts and ends with the broody, grumpy, too-sexy-for-my-own good Axel Huxley.

Also known as this romance novelist’s number one nemesis.

The man is legendary for his mighty pen and his even mightier scowl. I tried to work together with the cocky thriller writer once upon a time, but the two of us are like vodka and good decisions. We don’t play well together.

Only now, our publishers are sending us on a joint trip across Europe to mingle with our most devoted readers on an old-fashioned luxury train. And thanks to a booking snafu, we have to share a sleeper car.

You guessed it–there’s only one bed.

I’m not sure I can survive the next seven days and nights with my dangerously sexy enemy and all our fiery tension.

Which explodes one night in a desperately needed hate bang.

But the bigger plot twist is this – the more time we spend together, visiting the most romantic cities in Europe by day and discovering each other at night, the more I’m forced to face our past.

To let go of the hurt.

To see the man he’s become.

And when I do, I wonder if it’s too late to write a new happy ending for us?

RELEASE BLITZ WITH EXCERPT: Keep This Promise by Corinne Michaels

KEEP THIS PROMISE, a suspenseful, secret baby, friends-to-lovers romance from New York Times Bestselling Author, Corinne Michaels, is available now!

Scroll down for an excerpt!

 

 

I’m about to lose everything.

My home. My name. My future.

 

 

I’m about to lose everything.

My home. My name. My future.

My husband was involved in something that could cost us our lives, and on his deathbed, he demands my daughter and I flee Britain.

I had no idea he found her biological father, Holden James, in Rose Canyon, and that’s where we’d start over.

The moment we see each other, feelings I’d long forgotten rush over me. Holden doesn’t hesitate to care for us. We find ourselves reaching for each other, even when we should hold back. His smile warms me, his arms protect me, and against my better judgment, I fall for him. All the possibilities of a future are threatened by a looming past.

I’m being hunted, and it’s just a matter of time before someone finds me guilty of crimes I didn’t commit. Whatever trouble my husband was involved in won’t evade me forever.

I am trying to keep my promise and stay for Holden, but I don’t know how long it’ll be before we have to run.

My name was Sophie Pearson, but I vanished, just like my hope to ever find love again.

EXCERPT:

“Dance with me, Sophie.”

Her forehead touches my chest, and we sway a little. “Dancing in the dark is what got us in trouble.”

I chuckle against her ear. “I think it was the bathroom, love. I don’t remember dancing then, but I’ll always remember tonight. When you spilled juice on me and then danced with me barefoot in the puddle.”

I feel her head move side to side. “Holden?”

“Yes?”

She pauses, and my heartbeat quickens as her finger moves as if she’s tracing something against my skin. “I like you.”

“That’s good,” I say with a soft laugh.

“I like you more than I feel like I should.”

I like her a hell of a lot more than I should, but I don’t say it. Instead, I turn us a little and rub my thumb along her spine. “I don’t think there’s such a thing.”

Her soft sigh fills the room. “I’m not ready to like you that way.”

She has been through hell, and I don’t doubt that she’s scared, but I would burn the world down before I hurt her. The feelings Sophie has, I share as well.

I like the way she smiles.

I love her voice and the way she gets animated when telling me a story about her life. When I’m at work, I count down the minutes until I can get back.

She gave me more in the last few months than I ever thought possible. She gave me a daughter, but even if Eden didn’t exist, I would gravitate to Sophie.

Her warmth radiates off her, and I crave it.

“Then we’ll dance until you’re ready.”
