Welcome to Sweetbriar Cove: the home of feel-good romance!

Jenny Archer knows that fairytales aren’t real… so when a handsome Scotsman shows up on her doorstep in the middle of the night, she figures there has to be a catch. Like the fact that he’s tall, dark, and emotionally unavailable – and claims to be the new owner of her home.

The last thing Fraser Macintosh needs is drama. He’s traded the flashy art scene for a quiet life working on his paintings in Sweetbriar Cove, but he didn’t figure on his new house coming complete with a beautiful, stubborn caretaker, and her smart-mouthed niece.

They may be unlikely roommates, but soon, sparks are flying between Fraser and Jenny – and heating up the dark autumn nights on Cape Cod. But can Jenny open her heart to this rakish stranger? And will Fraser trade his bachelor life for this unexpected new family?

Release Blitz: ‘Three Dates’ by Grahame Claire

Title: Three Dates
Series: Paths to Love #2
Author: Grahame Claire
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 2, 2018




I’ve never been on a date.

And I intended to keep it that way.

But to save my best friends’ relationship, I agreed to three with the man I secretly long for.

He doesn’t know why we can’t be. That chancing a relationship would bring everything crashing down around us.

Whatever he makes me feel is irrelevant. Wherever he thinks this may lead, he’s wrong.

Three dates.

That’s all I have to survive before I can put him back where he belongs…

At arm’s length.

Six years.

That’s how long I’ve waited for her.

Now I’ve got three shots to convince her what I’ve known all along…

We belong together.

Despite all of my determination, each new revelation seems to pull us apart.

With everything stacked against us, we may not even make it to date three, let alone forever.

Title: Reclaiming Brave
Series: The Kane Brothers #3
Author: Gina Azzi

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: October 29, 2018



It was supposed to be one night. But then it became so much more. She’s pregnant. 


I never anticipated the two pink lines, the shock of pregnancy, from one night with Denver Kane. Sure, I’ve been hot for him since before he realized I existed. But that doesn’t mean he’s about to become a family man. Even if I’m having his baby.


She was off-limits, my little sister’s best friend. Until I crossed the line, not knowing it would change everything. Now she’s pregnant and my future looks different. I want to share in her sunny optimism and believe in new beginnings. Except I’m not cut out for it. Not anymore.

But I can’t walk away from her, from them, and the crazy thing is, I don’t want to.

Can a fling turn into something real?


When the world throws me a curveball, I run away from Chicago to Martha’s Vineyard.

Just for a few days of soul searching before returning to my regular life.

Then I meet him.

Chance Santos.

A curious force draws me to him.

I don’t believe in insta-love or the myth of happily-ever-after.

But the chemistry between us is undeniable.

In his arms, I find passion, learn who I am, and who I want to be.

Logic says walk away.

We’re strangers.

Two ships passing in the night.

Our lives are too different.

The age gap too wide.

But I crave him.

His touch.

His kiss.

His presence.

Is one amazing weekend enough to be the start of something?

Should I flee again?

Or do I dare take this Chance?

My marriage only lasted three pathetic hours and forty-two worthless minutes.

I thought coming home would be uncomplicated, that I could start over.

Then he walked into my life.

Older. Wiser. Dangerous.

Grayson Turner gave me a night of absolute, toe-curling bliss.

That was supposed to be the end.

Only his rough edges cut me open, and I can feel again.


My marriage crumbled after I caught my ex-wife in a lie.

I’ve had enough of the BS and games that go along with love.

And then I caught sight of Gemma Castile standing in my house.

Instantly, she seeps under my skin.

She’s twenty-eight and I’m forty.

One night of reckless passion.

That’s all it was supposed to be.


Together, we ventured into the deep …

Drew Canelli likes his women the way he likes his martinis.

Warm, sexy and in various flavors.

Shaken or stirred, classic and swank, original or edgy.

He loves them all.

The dirtier the better.

All the pleasure with no ill effects. No interference. No dependency.

Once satisfied, he leaves the glass empty.

Every time.

Until a fresh shiny label, unique in style and garnish, appears.

Rachel Daine.

Strong. Heady. Habit forming. One sip leaves Drew a staggering drunk.

Hooked and hung over, cold turkey is his only hope.

But this time, he can’t resist the potent mix that promises to bite him back.


*Dirty Martinis is a modern spin on the traditional cocktail.


Cover Design: Shanoff Designs

Ava James might have lost her mind.

She definitely lost her job.

Quit, actually—over the phone—with a boss more intimidating than God, after finding out that he gave her promotion to a manipulative, scheming sleazebag.

Off the rails with rage, predictable, rigid, all-work-and-no-play Ava decides to let her wild side fly.

What work trip? A long weekend in the Caribbean sounds better.

And the broody but hot stranger she can’t seem to shake? He’s getting under her skin in a very tasty way.

Dominic West is a highly trained covert operative looking to avenge his brother’s death, but he never imagined that dark path involving her.

Ava James.

The face he has tracked from afar for years, and the one person who showed his broken brother kindness.

She’s being set up to fall or to die, and he can’t let either happen. Ava wears a tough shell, but up close—dangerously close—he sees her.

All of her.

And now she’s suddenly someone he needs to protect as much as betray.
