By Chance (A Playing Games Spin-off Novella)
While burying herself into her editing job, Samantha Cline struggles to come to terms with the fact that her love life is dormant… and has been for quite some time. Every sickly sweet love story she has to edit continuously reminds her of how impractical romance is. Aside from her loyal group of friends who have their own relationship drama, she settles for companionship of the canine variety with her best bud, Chance.
In truth, there’s only one man who has ever turned Sam’s head, though she’d never admit it aloud. She remembers watching him train horses on her dad’s farm as a teenager, and no other man has ever measured up. Now that he’s been living next door to her for a few years, she can’t help but wish he’d glance her way and show some sort of recognition.
Sam is finally pushed over the edge when her dog runs off, forcing her to reassess her lot in life and what it would take to heal her heart in his absence. Then, one stormy night, her very sexy neighbor shows up on her doorstep, stealing her breath away with his presence. After a rather awkward encounter, Sam can’t help but wonder if she’ll lose her chance for good.
My One And Always
Sydney moved to the small town of Burton, Georgia to run her aunt’s bakery. At least, that’s her excuse. She doesn’t exactly want to broadcast the fact that her own restaurant went belly-up, her boyfriend ditched her and her life is in shambles. And the cute newspaper guy who keeps pestering her for date with his danish? Yeah, that’s not happening.
Will is pretty sure he’s a glutton for punishment. After all, Sydney’s made it clear she’s not interested, but he just can’t seem to stay away, no matter how hard he tries.
Now, though, he’s got a secret weapon–the four-legged kind. Can this down-on-his-luck dog be the key to toppling the walls around her heart?
All in the Takeoff (The Rawley Family Romances – 4)
Harrison Richards may be part-Rawley, but he’s content with a ranch life just outside his tight family circle. On a flight to pick up a rescue dog after his cousin Kay’s wedding, his small Cessna is grounded due to weather. Harrison’s left to find lodging for himself . . . and a shepherd-mix named Curtiss.
Single-mom Kitty Sears has a hectic life running a busy bed-and-breakfast. The short window between winter and summer is her unofficial vacation, when local tourism is almost dead, so she’s surprised to get a call about a guest looking for special accommodations.
From the moment Harrison lays eyes on Kitty Sears, he has a feeling he’s getting more than he bargained for in a hostess. He’s not looking for romance, but it may be that love just needs a little spark to takeoff . . .
Lindy James is the sister of baseball star, Tate James. When Tate’s neighbor, Kip Deevers crosses paths with Tate’s little sister, he gets more than he bargains for-a grade school crush and a pair of dog paws on his chest. The attraction between the two is undeniable but Lindy’s past has her afraid to let Kip get too close. Kip is willing to put aside his dislike for all things furry to get to know Lindy better but will she let her guard down long enough for Kip to win over her heart?
