From corporate raider to daddy-in-training
A family was the last thing workaholic Brady Ward had ever planned on. So after eight years abroad, he was shocked when a blast from his passionate past walked into his office—and informed him that he was a daddy. Now he was faced with a choice: to keep climbing the ladder of success, or build a life with the daughter he left behind.
Maggie Brown wanted their little girl to know her father, but bringing a man as ambitious as Brady into their lives was a huge risk, one she wasn't sure she should take for Amber or herself. Because even after eight years, he still got her heart racing like no one else. Yet would he really give up the corporate lifestyle in the big city for life in a sleepy small town? Maybe if he realized that family was a gift that only came along once in a lifetime….
Twenty years ago, Nicole Baxter left the only home she knew—and the boy who shared all her secrets. Now, with nowhere else to go, she's back in Tawnee Valley to figure out her next move—and cry on her old friend Sam Ward's shoulder. Except the gentle dreamer has become a brooding loner who's gearing up to sell the place he loves most.
When Nikki moved away, Sam lost the best friend he ever had. The beautiful, elegant woman who comes home is a world away from the tomboy with pigtails and skinned knees. And he's no longer the dreamy kid who believes in happy endings. Until Nikki starts to convince him they share the same dream: a future together right here in their own backyard…
Séduisants, ambitieux... amoureux.
Retrouvailles chez les Fortune, Judy Duarte
Epouse-moi... Jamais Nicole n’aurait cru prononcer un jour ces mots, elle qui a toujours fait passer sa vie professionnelle avant sa vie amoureuse. Et d’ailleurs, si elle propose ce mariage à Miguel Mendoza, son ex-petit ami, c’est uniquement pour pouvoir garder le contrôle de l’entreprise qu’elle dirige. Mais, dans ce cas, pourquoi se sent-elle aussi fébrile face au beau Miguel ? Serait-il possible que, au fond d’elle, et malgré les circonstances de leur rupture, elle rêve encore de raviver leur amour ?
Pour les yeux d’Amber, Amanda Berry
Maggie est abasourdie : elle vient d’apprendre que Brady Ward n’a jamais reçu la lettre dans laquelle elle lui annonçait qu’elle était enceinte, et ignore donc qu’il est le père d’une adorable fillette de huit ans. Et dire que, pendant toutes ces années, elle a cru que Brady ne voulait rien savoir d’Amber ! Du coup, il n’y a plus une minute à perdre : elle doit le trouver, lui parler, lui proposer une place dans la vie d’Amber, qu’elle aime plus que tout au monde. Et tant pis si cela doit bouleverser le fragile équilibre qu’elle s’est construit...

Ahora se encontraba ante la encrucijada de decidir entre continuar con su meteórica carrera de éxitos en lo profesional, o empezar una nueva vida que incluyera a la hija a la que había dejado atrás.
Miranda Blight’s life is falling apart: her husband’s a jerk, her handcrafted dolls don’t sell, her body rebels. Following surgery, she butts heads with Mrs. Vic, her former evil nursing instructor, who continues to boss and manipulate, despite paralysis.
Pain and post-op drugs befuddle Miranda; she cannot escape Mrs. Vic’s diabolical schemes to catch the woman’s son-in-law, who may have killed his wife.
The further Miranda falls into the secrets and dangers of Mrs. Vic’s life, the more she is challenged by quirky evidence, odd weapons and a confusing, handcontrolled wheelchair van; when Miranda is forced to drive this vehicle to the ends of Mrs. Vic’s insane world, her own life splits wide open.
Road to Disaster examines Custer’s unusual mental and emotional make-up, which played out in his military career, his relationship with his wife, and in the death he and many of his men found at the end of their march into Montana. A clearer picture of the man appears, providing answers as to why military success followed him to the top of his career, and why the Battle of the Little Bighorn became such a shocking disaster in the summer of 1876.
