Jackson Gallagher's teenage rebellion cost him everything: his home, his family, and the girl who could only love him in secret. Seventeen years later, a wildly successful multimillionaire, he is drawn back to Sweetgrass Springs to confront his past: the father who banished him, the town that turned its back on him…and the woman he has never been able to forget.

Texas Rebel is my favorite Jean Brashear novel. Jackson and Veronica deliver a knockout punch to the emotions. They thought forever was meant to be theirs, until heartache turned out to be lurking on the horizon. How does a person forgive the one who broke their heart, when next they see them again? Just when I think I'm all cried out, Brashear has me reaching for the Kleenex again.

Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury. Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down. And she might just be the first woman with whom I ever fall in love. When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world - taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out. The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid.

I live for discovering new authors, so I jumped at the chance to give Louise Bay a try. International Player delivered more than I was expecting. Great characters, sexy accents and a heartwarming romance. Truly and Noah are both running from something. Truly spends her time stuck in the shadows of her more vibrant twin. Noah spends his days trying to escape painful memories of a childhood he'd rather forget. East and Maarleveld guide readers into a world of heartbreaking tragedy, inspiring strength and unforgettable romance. Bay strikes at the heart.. International Player appeals to the emotions and that 's what makes it a winner.

Coming Apart at the Seams is beauty personified. Not because of the way it ends, but the detours it hits along the way. Nick and Teagan are not the definition of perfect. Beneath their glamourous lives and their burgeoning romance are some painful scabs, just waiting to be exposed. However, it's the imperfections that make them a perfect fit for each other. Lucas' voice carries a vulnerability that makes it easy to love these people, even in the most of unlovable moments. Sutton has written a sonnet that turns a beautiful tragedy into a happily ever after.

The big snag: Sam and Maggie's chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which makes keeping their secret far more difficult than either expected. Especially when one of them decides they want this arrangement to be more than just a catch and release.

Love can be awkward, but lust can be divine. Next in Line takes an awkward situation and makes it into a temptation of a romance. Sam and Maggie are a combination of playful and forbidden. Mallon and Hamilton bring a wicked kind of fun to an already sensual tango of love. Daws pens a flirty, often times dirty but always entertaining, sassy romance.

Char Brown is overweight and underappreciated. But at least she has a boyfriend and a job she enjoys. Wait, scratch that. He just broke up with her. Over text. And told her to lose weight. Overly self-conscious about herself and a classic introvert, Char isn’t sure what she’s got going for her anymore. But Darryl Drummond sure does, and he’s insistent that she’s worth more than she thinks. The only thing he likes more than wine is Char, and he’s not going to relent until she notices.

Anticipating Temptation will have you rooting for the underdog. Perrin gives beauty a makeover with Char Brown. Char is a sweet woman with a bucketful of self-esteem issues. Nursing a broken heart and an outlook of defeat, she's about to find the man she always hoped for. If he can convince her he's the real deal. Perrin puts into words the struggles of being different, but Char and Darryl prove how beautiful, unique can be. From the heartfelt words to the empathetic delivery and the magnificent characters, it's easy to love everything about Anticipating Temptation.

After accidentally meeting the sexy and powerful owner, Dominic Montgomery, they fall into flirtatious and friendly rhetoric.

After a dinner meeting, the strict company policy of "no office romance" becomes difficult to follow.

What if your heart was stuck on repeat and had to relive the same heartache all over again? Will there ever be the chance to finally get love right? Chapman will most certainly own a piece of any heart with What Happens at Midnight. Natalie is a combination of hopeless romantic and heartbroken dreamer. When fate presents her with the opportunity to get her happy ending, nothing will keep her from taking a chance on forever. From the charming dialogue, captivating story and angst filled narration Chapman and Heart ring in the new year with a bit help from the ghost of Christmas past and the magic of a Happy New Year.
