Remembering Andy (by Sanda Sookoo)

Devastated after her fiancé dies in Iraq, Claudia Foster packs up her life and moves to the city of Indianapolis. She's a small town girl and she wants to lose herself in the noise, sites, and sounds of a place so foreign from her upbringing, nothing could possibly remind her of her guilt surrounding Andy's death. But fate has other plans.

Daniel Sorenson has put all thoughts of his brother Andy's death from his mind just to get through the day but running into Claudia again stirs up all the hidden feelings he has struggled so hard to hide. How can you love the girl who was supposed to marry your dead brother? How can that be normal?

As the two share their grief, they also share something deeper: laughter. But is it enough? Or will they spend their whole lives simply remembering Andy and never embrace the love that could be theirs if only they could have the courage to reach for it

Up Hill (by Jody Overend)

Up Hill (by Jody Overend) Hillary Wilkes, better known as Lary - rhymes with "scary" - is a physically and romantically challenged Over Fifty. Once a big shot producer of a TV cooking show, she is abruptly fired, thanks to one Pamela Effing Griffin. Now reduced to showing real estate condos for ten bucks an hour to Typically Upscale Urban Couples, Lary is overweight and unloved. But never mind. Life is about to change - drastically and hilariously. The romantic misadventures of Lary, her niece, Pumpkin, and her Air Canada flight attendant pal, Becks, with a weakness for musicians, will keep you guessing until the very last page. An LOL tale, UpHill is best enjoyed with a martini and a large pizza.

The Laird's Time (by Belladanna Bordeaux)

The Laird's Time (by Belladanna Bordeaux)
Ainsleigh Darling is back at the top of her game. She's got her next album in the can and is ready for a little rest and relaxation before the whirlwind promotional tour. Her intention to take this breather in a Scottish castle, also where she'd finally broken through her writer's block, leads her to the most unexpected place. The Veil is going to take her on a trip to twelfth-century Scotland and thrust her into the arms of her dream man.

Adaem MacPherson has lived more than his fair share of life. Born on the wrong side of the sheets, he's been forced to fight for every snippet of respect he could garner. On top of his unfortunate birth, he's also living beneath the stigma wrought from wild words that there's a prophecy hanging over his head. None of it is true, but the mysterious woman who appears in his keep might just shake out the real reason his step-mother began the vile rumor that he's cursed.

Intrigue and danger are around every corner, but can Ainsleigh adapt to life in medieval Scotland or has this once high-flying celebrity finally hit the rock bottom of a grave?
