$FREE on 11/2/2021 – Heart of the Violist by Maddie Evans

Ashlyn may finally have her life under control. Abandoned by her own mother when she was a kid, Ashlyn found a home when the Castletons embraced her as their fourth child. Nowadays Ashlyn plays viola in the Castleton String Quartet. She’s got a family and rent money. What more could she ask for?

After months of searching for his biological family, Michael has just seen his DNA results. Astonishingly, he has a full sister—violinist Lindsey Castleton. One frenzied drive later, Michael finds Lindsey performing with her string quartet, alongside the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen.

The Castleton siblings insist the report is wrong because their parents weren’t even in the same country when Michael was born. Is this a scam? The deeper they dig into his story, though, the more Ashlyn wants him to be a Castleton. Michael seems stable, strong, and reliable. Not to mention his gorgeous eyes and dusky voice.

As each answer reveals another question, Michael and Ashlyn are drawn together by the brokenness of their past. To achieve the potential of their future, Ashlyn will have to trust Michael enough to open her heart, but with trust comes the risk of betrayal.

Heart of the Violist is the first novel of the Castleton String Quartet romances, a story about the families we’re born into and the families love can make for us.

$0.99 on 10/22/2021 – It Started with a Sunset by Meg Easton

For these two workplace opposites, attraction caught them by surprise.

Summer Graham’s life is just how she likes it—surrounded by people in both her personal life and in her work life as an admissions recruiter at a university. Want to go on an adventure? She’s your gal. Want a serious relationship? She can probably introduce you to someone who does, but it’s not her.

Brock McMillan spends his time striving for perfection, being a good older brother, and enjoying his job helping students get college scholarships. Oh, and disagreeing with Summer on pretty much everything that goes on in the office.

Not that it’s purposeful. Their ideas are just kind of like their office spaces—Brock’s is minimalist and logical (but Summer will tell you it’s where ideas go to die) and Summer’s is lively, fun, and creative (but Brock will tell you it’s chaotic).

They’re unwillingly teamed up to run Aquamoose Tracks together—the big overnight event put on by the Welcome Center at the university where they both work. And even though the event is literally all fun and games (and, okay, a healthy dose of info), neither of them thinks they’ll survive working together so closely.

And they definitely never expect to fall in love.

$0.99 on 10/10/2021 – Coming Home to Silver Leaf Falls by Meg Easton

She’s back in town, but he’s about to leave.
Will their fake relationship have real repercussions?

Everything in Liz Jenkins’s life is temporary, including the job at the struggling summer camp from her childhood. But she’ll turn it around like every company she’s hired to fix. In fact, her own disastrous love life seems to be the only thing she can’t turn around. She’ll just leave love to everyone else. It’s scary and uncontrollable—and Liz likes to be in control. If only the people of Silver Leaf Falls would stop trying to set her up with every available man in town.

Noah Knight is the beloved principal at Silver Leaf Falls Elementary. He loves living in his hometown, but something’s missing. He’s hoping a new job in another state will help fill the void. Other than leaving right after reconnecting with his friend Liz, the biggest downside is the PTA making it their mission to find him a wife before he moves away.

Liz just needs to focus on work without being set up and Noah needs the PTA to leave him alone. Pretending to date for the summer is the perfect solution—and since neither of them wants to fall in love, nothing could possibly go wrong, right?

What better place to start over, than where it all began?
Lily Baker needs a restart. No job, no boyfriend, and a baby on the way, she takes a break from her fast-paced city life to slow down in the seaside village where she spent her summers growing up, to re-examine her life.

A face from her past, her neighbour Eric – a hottie with a heart of gold – doesn’t seem to care about Lily’s terrible reputation and welcomes her back with open arms. Could a romantic fling with him be in the cards?
The more Lily settles into the beach life, the less she craves the urban hustle, and starts to feel like this is where she belongs.
But small towns talk and small towns remember, and Lily’s going to have to deal with her past if she plans on making Cheshire Bay, and Eric, her future.
Fans of Rachel Gibson and Jill Shavis will love this sweet and charming story of a straightened out bad girl coming home to her small town on Vancouver Island.

$FREE on 4/21/2021 – The Cowboy’s Stolen Heart by Jean Oram

NYC fashion model Laura Oakes longs to be taken seriously. When an inheritance brings her to Sweetheart Creek, Texas, she shucks her old life and dives headlong into small town living. Too bad the handsome and serious cowboy Levi Wylder she’s crushing on sees her as nothing more than a princess.

Was it the sparkly cowboy boots? Because it couldn’t be due to how she stepped in and calmed that rearing horse outside his stable.

The last thing Levi Wylder needs is a high-maintenance woman interfering with his plans. But that’s exactly what he gets when his family ranch suddenly finds itself without a riding stable manager. And the only person he can find to fill those empty boots is a woman who buys her footwear based on looks alone.

But when Laura steps into the ring, Levi discovers there’s something about this beautiful stranger that he completely underestimated—such as her ability to steal his well-protected heart.
