Happy Monday! We’re picking back up in the new year with the series on my author blog where I recommend books so we can start our weeks off right. Sounds good to me. Let’s do this!

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? 😉

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
