"Emotionally gripping and explosive." --BiblioManiac 

After last summer's failed attempt at romance, Gina is absolutely done with men. And especially with millionaires. She has a good job as a fashion editor and amazing friends, and she's decided she needs nothing else. All she really misses is the sex. But that rush just isn't worth the risk of being ensnared in another relationship. When the hot bartender at her best friend's Sonoma wedding suggests some harmless stress relief, she takes him up on the offer. When it's sufficiently satisfactory, she indulges in a repeat--for the road. When she learns he's actually the wealthy owner of the vineyard, the mix of fury and fear is damped only by the knowledge that she never has to see him again. 

Hunter Cavaliere is determined to honor his grandfather's legacy, and so far, he's right on track. The vineyard is thriving, he has plans for expansion, and his wines speak for themselves. The only thing missing is the right woman to share it all. But through his grandparents' marriage, Hunter learned what true love is, and he's unwilling to settle for anything else. A woman who judges him because of his money definitely isn't high up on his list. Still, when circumstance unbelievably keeps bumping him into the intriguing brunette from Portland, he can't shake the feeling that she is someone he should pursue. 

Gina's poised to run the other way, but one more taste of Hunter may just prove too tempting to resist.

She closed her eyes. Think with your head. Your heart can’t be trusted. Life is not a fairytale…

 

Single mum Rory doesn’t believe in love. She’s got far too many real problems to deal with.

 

She’s just bought a tumbledown house. Her mother is generally behaving like a wicked witch, insisting on calling her Aurora, and generally interfering in her (admittedly pitiful lack of) love life. And her 16-year-old daughter has finally grown out of Disney princesses and discovered dating…

 

But Rory’s adamant that she doesn’t need saving. In fact, the only thing she’s wishing on a star for is a bit of practical help. However, when she meets a builder whose name is John Prince and who seems to be in the habit of rescuing her (right down to finding her lost shoe one evening) she might have to face a truth as uncomfortable as hobbling home barefoot – that maybe there’s something enchanted in the air.

 

Her mother, daughter and friends are convinced her prince has come, but Rory just wishes everyone could let it go. Especially when she hears a story that makes her question whether he is really the hero everyone thinks he is…

 

A hilarious, romantic love story about mothers, daughters and how on earth to find Prince Charming, for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes and Cecelia Ahern.

Could you plan a wedding if you'd never been in love?

 

Tessa has always dreamed of her own business. And when a beautiful tumbledown house comes up for sale in the Southern town of Bellegrove, she knows it has perfect potential to be an amazing one-stop wedding shop.

 

Teaming up with three talented friends, they’re ready for big things. They’ve even found their first client – a sweet old lady called Bianca, who’s desperate to give her grandson a spectacular wedding. (Even though he’s equally determined to keep it simple and romantic.)

 

But as the big day approaches, things start to go wrong. Handsome handyman Blake Ellingham breaks the news that the building needs re-wiring and the bill for renovations is longer than a royal wedding train. And then one of her friends suddenly quits their fledgling business…

 

Can Tessa pull off the dream wedding? Can Blake be convinced to help? And if the electrics are broken, why are so many sparks flying between him and Tessa?

 

The perfect feel-good summer romance for 2018 for fans of Debbie Macomber, Jenny Hale and Debbie Johnson.
