New Beginnings In The Little Irish Village By Michelle Vernal
Welcome to the little Irish village of Emerald Bay where the sun is shining, the locals are gossiping, and romance is in the air. But will returning home be the fresh start Imogen Kelly needs?
Thirty-two-year-old Imogen Kelly is meant to be living her best life in Dublin but the bright lights of the city aren’t making her truly happy. So she leaps at the chance to take on an interior design job at the big country manor at the edge of Emerald Bay. It also gives Imogen an excuse to return to the place where she spent an unforgettable summer with her first love, Lachlan Leslie, the heir to Benmore House.
Imogen’s heart is full of hope at the thought of seeing her childhood sweetheart but on the way there she nearly has an accident on the winding, muddy country road. She arrives at Benmore House late and flustered, only to discover the builder working with her on the renovation project is none other than Ryan O’Malley – the class prankster who was forever pinging her bra strap at school.
Within seconds it’s clear he’s still a cheeky charmer, even if he’s transformed into a gorgeous guy who unexpectedly sets her pulse racing. Forced into close proximity with relentlessly cheerful Ryan, who’s forever (badly) singing rock ballads at the top of his voice, Imogen at first finds him an annoying distraction.
With St Patrick’s Day celebrations in full swing, Imogen has her work cut out to keep the job on track. Spending more time with Ryan, she discovers that, behind his warm smile and generous ways, he’s nursing heartache. But when she finally sees blue-eyed Lachlan again,Imogen has to face up to the truth about the secret summer romance they shared.
Will she leave Emerald Bay broken-hearted? Or will Imogen realise that home really is where the heart is?
FBI Agent’s Reluctant Lover By Leslie North
True love is worth fighting for…
Single mother Rachel has enough on her plate with two rambunctious twin boys to raise. Still mourning her husband, she isn’t looking for romance—until Chance, a strikingly handsome ex-FBI agent, shows up at her door.
While it’s clear Rachel knows nothing about his case involving a kidnapped baby, it’s also obvious she’s in over her head with her own little ones. Chance steps in to help, and suddenly all the chaos of her life seems to disappear. Chance is caring, hot, and he has a calming way about him that soothes her soul—and fires up her desire. But love? She’s not sure she’s ready for that…
No two ways about it… Chance is enthralled by Rachel. She’s everything he’s ever wanted in a woman. Smart, strong, and beautiful—more than enough to get him imagining what it would be like to be in her life permanently. Unfortunately, Rachel doesn’t seem nearly as interested in him as he is in her.
When he was an FBI agent, Chance always got the results he wanted. But now that he has found the perfect woman, can he convince her that he is what she wants?
