Happy Monday! Let’s stay warm with the series on my author blog where I recommend books so we can start our weeks off right. I’m totally in, so I hope you are!

My recommendations will always be sweet/clean and generally of the romance genre. We may dabble in some romantic suspense, cozy mystery, inspirational, holiday, etc. But I love love, and I keep it sweet in my corner of the world. So that’s what you’ll find here. I’m excited to share!

This week’s books are awesome. We have books with food, Christmas, and fake marriages. What more could you ask for in sweet romance? 😉


She wants to run.
He wants to help her.
But when they must honeymoon together as if they’re the happy couple, will a series of fake events which turn into a fake relationship entice them both back to the altar, only this time for real?

 

This is a collection of four clean romances—three novels and one novella. These are complete stories, not samples.

The Trouble with Billionaires

Charlotte has just moved to the perfect small town to build a new life with her son, Taylor. She wants him to grow up to be a better man than his father, whose rich lifestyle brought her nothing but pain during their marriage. When Taylor’s handsome new t-ball coach, Nate Haverton, turns out to be a billionaire, she knows she has to keep him at a distance. But Nate is determined to change her mind.

The Truth about Billionaires

Jill is determined to prove she deserves her position at her father’s consulting firm, so the last thing she has time for is dating. Since her only experience with love ended in heartbreak, she isn’t tempted to break her own rule—until she meets Blake McDaniel. When she’s asked to take a job working with Blake, it’s a great step in her career, but the more time she spends around the attractive, determined billionaire, the harder it is to remember why she wants to stay single.

The Trust of a Billionaire

Hannah is determined to keep her beachfront property, even though she can’t afford to. But it’s her childhood home and she can’t bear to see it plowed down by Carter Ellis, the billionaire investor who keeps raising his offer to buy it. When Carter hires her to be his daughter’s nanny—providing her the income she needs to reject his offer—the irony is not lost on her. However, seeing him as a loving, worried father makes it difficult to enjoy her secret revenge—and even more impossible not to fall for him.

A Tree for the Billionaire

Getting hired as the personal assistant to the intelligent and attractive billionaire Christopher Warren seemed like a fairytale come true for Kate Ryan, but two years later, she hands in her two-weeks notice just before Christmas. How can she keep working for him day after day when she’s in love with him? Not even the most beautiful and fascinating women in the world hold his interest, so there’s clearly no chance for her. Unfortunately, Mr. Warren seems determined to change her mind.

 

She wants a new life, free from her past.
He wants his old life back before everything went wrong.
What they really need is each other.

Emma’s ex broke her heart and left her broke, making her desperate for a job. A local gym manager asks her to fill in as an assistant after multiple employees failed to show up on Christmas Day. Mistake number one: bringing cookies for her new co-workers. Mistake number two: asking, rather loudly, who’d work out on a holiday?

Will’s modeling career put him on the map. His money kept him there. Now he’s a health and fitness celebrity, filling his gyms, even on Christmas. But a series of losses caused the media to name him the billionaire playboy. When he arrives at his New York City location, his agent suggests his new assistant help him restore his reputation.

The cookie-baking girl.
The protein shakes drinking dude.
The one who doesn’t work out.
The one with abs of steel.

Emma and Will couldn’t be more different except they both have secrets to hide and promises to keep. They could work together to fix their lives but the only problem is they hate each other and both make mistake number three: not knowing whom to trust.

 

I hope you enjoy! Until next time. <3

She’s an American tourist looking for adventure. He’s an Italian billionaire spy who needs a fake fiancée.

When American tourist Thelma Lopez gives a handsome Italian a ride, she expects help navigating Rome, not a car chase from thugs. A sucker for injured men in tuxedos, she helps him escape…only to receive the strangest offer.

Dante Andretti, billionaire CEO by day, spy by night, just might have found the perfect accomplice to help him uncover an assassination plot. A tour through Italy in his Lamborghini is Thelma’s if she’ll pose as his fiancée.

Rattled on Italian roads, she happily agrees. It’s temporary after all. Too bad amidst the danger, gelato, and backstabbing ex-girlfriends, she had to fall in love.

 

How is anyone supposed to find love when everyone from politicians to the paparazzi thinks they know what’s best for you?

For Hannah, visiting the small European country of Eilland on a trip with her mother was the opportunity of a lifetime. A chance to see history first hand. A chance to escape her mom’s new boss, the President of the United States. And maybe even a chance to learn something about herself.

The last thing Collin expected to find after burying his grandfather, the King of Eilland, was the girl of his dreams. With his country on cusp of a new era and his family avoiding their responsibilities, it really wasn’t the best time. But some things can’t be denied.

With the weight of their responsibilities at their backs and a new, unexpected future before them, Collin and Hannah must learn to fight for the future they want.

And sometimes falling in love is the easy part.

 

Sometimes what you wish for… has been right there all along.

Actress Katie Dunn has everything she ever dreamed of: a starring role on a smash hit sitcom. The writing is good, she loves the people she works with, and she doesn’t have to face any tabloid drama, unlike her co-star, Ellery. But she can’t help but wonder what it would be like to be even more famous, for hers to be the name on everyone’s lips.

Doug Belford is a rising star at the hottest talent agency in town. He’s also the go-to guy for the agency’s #1 client, Katie Dunn. He’d love to keep climbing to the top, which means going along with his boss’s plans for Katie–plans he’s pretty sure Katie won’t like.

She likes him. He likes her. But will their ambition ruin their chances for love–or the other way around?

 

I hope you enjoy! Until next time. <3

A Beauty and the Beast retelling…

A woman with a secret, a recluse, and a marriage of convenience.

For over a year Isabeau Daniels lived in fear of a stalker. Now, with him in jail, she’s ready to start fresh in Dallas as a housekeeper for Rowan Masters—a well known lawyer and recluse.

A car accident left Rowan Masters burned—both physically and emotionally. He’s spent the last twelve years hiding in his family home—and now, to keep his home he’s forced to marry.

Isabeau loves the feeling of safety that Rowan’s mansion offers, and he needs a wife. When a marriage of convenience turns into something more, can they leave behind the nightmare of the past and find the beauty in loving each other?

 

He’s on the road to fame. She’s at the end of the line. A chance meeting will change everything.

Kenna Mitchell grew up despised and mistreated by those who should’ve loved and protected her. Now homeless and alone, with pain too heavy to bear, she’s ready to end it all.

Enter Rogan Scott, an up-and-coming rock star with one focus—his band. Out in the woods, looking for song inspiration, he comes across a beautiful girl seconds from ending her life.

Rogan saves Kenna, only to face her anger. Intrigued by her reactions and motivations, he devotes himself to getting to know the real Kenna Mitchell. Turns out, she doesn’t even know herself. Soon their tenuous friendship blossoms into love, and Rogan pulls her into his world of rock and roll. But his social circle proves as cruel as the one she left behind.

As everything spirals out of control, Kenna discovers a shocking secret about her past. With each new lie uncovered, she’s gutted worse than before. She rallies every time—until she learns a painful detail she’s certain she’ll never recover from.

Can Rogan show Kenna that life is worth living, or will the merciless truths of her life convince her to finally end it all?

 

She’s a reporter who needs to uncover his story. He’s a billionaire who mistakes her for his new chef. Is it a recipe for a disaster … or a recipe for love?

Tessa Berkley has one last shot to keep her job. Her assignment: find out what illegal activity local billionaire Beckett Stone is doing. He’s consorting with ex-cons, and in her experience, people with money don’t do good things with it. But when she’s mistaken for his new chef, she sees him in a new light—and her growing attraction to him makes her hope he’s not guilty.

Beck Stone is married to his work. He can manipulate business to his liking, but the same can’t be said for love. That’s why he’s caught off guard when he wants to get to know his new chef. But he has to stay focused on the job. His family is counting on him to finish his latest project and keep it secret, and nothing will stand in the way—not even his growing attraction to Tessa.

When Tessa discovers the truth, will she choose to save her job or her new relationship while she’s investigating the billionaire?

 

I hope you enjoy! Until next time. <3

Happy Monday! I’m starting a brand-new series on my author blog where I recommend books so we can start our weeks off right. How’s that sound? I’m on board, so let’s go. 🙂

My recommendations will always be sweet/clean and generally of the romance genre. We may dabble in some romantic suspense, cozy mystery, inspirational, holiday, etc. But I love love, and I keep it sweet in my corner of the world. So that’s what you’ll find here. I’m excited to share!

Will a made-for-the-media marriage stop the path of true love?

Jennifer Leonard has everything a girl could dream of: fame, fortune, a successful acting career and a much-publicised relationship with her gorgeous co-star. When shooting on her latest block-buster movie grinds to a halt, her sister seizes the chance to order her home for a real family Christmas, just like old times. But Jen hasn’t been home in years, and the last thing she wants is to deal with the fall-out of a fictionalised marriage announcement, released by her publicist to cement the popularity of her two clients and prop up Jen’s flagging film career.

Alec Fitzgerald is pretty content with his life. A firefighter in the same small-town that has been his family’s home for generations, he knew it was the right thing to end it with Jen after high school and let her go – all the way to Hollywood. He can’t help but reminisce over the one that got away, though, especially at Christmas, and especially when he hears she’s coming home for the first time in years, with her very own movie star husband in tow.

Will Jen and Alec discover that home really is where the heart is at Christmas?

 

First impressions are overrated.

At least that’s what Jenn Harvey hopes after her awkward first encounter with Luke Bradley. Regardless of the embarrassing interaction, Jenn is in love—well, as in love as one could get after a two minute conversation. Luke is every girl’s dream: hunky, kind, funny, successful. He only has one minor flaw—he is dating Jenn’s best friend.

As complicated as her love life (or lack of one) is getting, Jenn’s career is just as rocky. She is a young baker who dreams of opening her own shop one day. But is risking everything for her dream job and her dream man worth it? Or should she just sit back and play it safe?

Through a series of hilarious bumps in the road, Jenn learns that, in both love and in life, you don’t always need to follow the recipe to get the perfect results.

 

A touching holiday story with a FREE recipe included!

When a dog randomly shows up at Kimberly’s family home a week before Christmas, she does her best to find his family. She and her husband know what it’s like to lose a beloved member of their family, so they want to help the dog.

But her own family, including her two young kids, soon become attached to him. Will the dog be reunited with his family? Or will he find a new forever home while Kimberly and her family find their own Christmas miracle?

 

I hope you enjoy! Until next time. <3
