Law never thought he'd want anything more than the chance to make a living cooking his food for the people of Barefoot Bay...but Libby arouses an irresistible hunger in him. Battling an attraction that sizzles hotter than one of Law's cast-iron skillets and uncovering long-buried secrets with more twists than one of Libby's yoga poses, they'll have find a way to both get what they want...especially if what they really want is each other.

As a firefighter, Captain Ken Cavanaugh knows his way around dangerous situations - but he'd rather run into a burning building than help plan his 25th high school reunion in Barefoot Bay. Unfortunately, it's his best chance of finally putting things right with Beth Endicott two and a half decades after they ended so badly. But the instant they see each other again, the years blow away like ashes in the heat of their combustible chemistry.

Barefoot at Moonrise It kept your interest up until the end. Just a nice romantic story not full of sex as most of the romance books are. I loved this book the characters were so interesting. Love the author and narrater.

With one failed marriage under her own personal belt, Lori had fallen hard and early - and it isn't something she plans on repeating. She's content focusing on the temporary marriages of her rich and famous clients. When she joins some of her recent divorcées on a celebratory cruise, her only vow is fun, sun, and new friends.

Tom DeMille lives his life exactly as he pleases - always alone. In fact, he's got that motto tattooed in Greek on his arm. But when Tom is suddenly saddled with guardianship of his 12-year-old niece, he'll lose more than his freedom if he can't figure out how to take care of her. Then an alluring young woman with pink hair and a sassy mouth shows up at his door, and he agrees to do the unthinkable - photograph a wedding in exchange for some help with his niece.

The Perfectly Imperfect Woman. I had this in my library when it came out months ago as I automatically buy most of Milly Johnsons books. I started to listen to it and thought it's boring so left it. Lately I have not been able to find my favourite authors on here Jill Mansell, Milly so I started to have a look through my books. I noticed this book and in desperation started to read it. After the first couple of chapters was not convinced then I got into it. I absolutely loved it. I had trouble putting it down. I will not describe it as it is not quite your normal story. It is a bit unreal in this day and age. I wish it could have gone on for hours. Highly recommend. No sex for a change just a good story like most of Millys .

Trina Petrov’s marriage-by-contract was only meant to be temporary. But when tragedy strikes, Trina is left one of the wealthiest women in the world. To recover from the shock, she takes some time off in Italy, swearing not to fall for any men while there. But that doesn’t mean she can’t fall for anyone on the trip home. Country-music superstar Wade Thomas is lying low in a hotel bar when he gets the cold shoulder from the woman next to him. He’s used to fans fawning at his boots, and Trina is a refreshing change - so is the fact that she has no idea who he is.
