A Stranger at Fellsworth by Sarah E. Ladd

"Sarah E. Ladd writes words that whisper to the heart and beg the reader to read just one more page. A STRANGER AT FELLSWORTH, the third book in Ladd's Treasures of Surrey series, is a beautiful and tender story of how losing everything one has can be the best thing to ever happen."

The Crooked Path by Irma Joubert

"THE CROOKED PATH by Irma Joubert, set in South Africa, is a touching story of love and loss. The author has written a clean and compelling story set with a combination of time and place I hadn't read before. This is an enjoyable book."

Quest of a Warrior by Mary Morgan

"It's utterly spellbinding! It feels so good to discover a well-written, fantastic romance filled with so much magic and passion that you can’t put it down!"

The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley

"Powerful, engrossing, and wonderfully spectacular! There's so much to share about this book, yet to reveal anything would almost be to reveal too much. Susanna Kearsley continues to impress."

Beautiful Tempest by Johanna Lindsey

"With passion to spare, high seas adventure, wit, and a few Malory-worthy "battle" scenes, BEAUTIFUL TEMPEST is a delightful read for historical romance lovers."

Choosing Bravery by Jacqui Nelson

"Ms. Nelson takes the reader on a western adventure with descriptive storytelling and tender romance. Ms. Nelson transported me to the 1860s in Oregon Territory to follow their high adventures!"

The Scot's Bride by Paula Quinn

"Author Paula Quinn pens sexy Highlanders and witty dialogue! The author has a skill for dialogue that keeps the characters and readers on their toes. This is an easy, fun, and steamy Highland romance that will surely please readers who enjoy the genre."

The Promise of a Highlander by Emma Prince

"A fantastic addition to Emma Prince's Highland Bodyguards series! Book five in the series is the story of Logan and Helena, and it's a beautiful story of passion and adventure."

Parent Teacher Association by Jennifer Soosar

"A very suspenseful novel, PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION had me holding my breath at times as my eyes quickly skimmed the words trying to discover what was going to happen next."

Searching for Irene by Marlene Bateman

"Ms. Bateman puts the reader in the setting with the grand estate, and the mansion took on a life of its own. Good for all audiences, SEARCHING FOR IRENE is worth reading."
