A new standalone novel by six-time USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy


I’ve been in love with a billionaire since the day I was born.

Does that sound crazy?


See, I’m the unplanned illegitimate daughter of the full-time dance instructor on the Claremont estate. The Claremonts have two sons, Bennett and Quinn.


Quinn was my friend from the beginning. Easygoing and fun.


Bennett, was, well, Bennett. Studious. Serious. It was always obvious who would take over the family business.


When I left for dance school, my heart stayed behind with Quinn. It didn’t matter. By then, he was the definition of a playboy billionaire. Sexy. Irresistible. A girl a week. Nonstop vacations. Insanely expensive cars.


He always thought of me as a friend, which I tried to be.

But I still loved him.


I decided that when I came back from New York, I would be somebody. An accomplished ballerina. Successful. Adored.


And he would love me at last.


What I didn’t count on when I returned, though, is that both Quinn and his brother would still be living at the estate.


And that they would both be ready to fight.


For me.

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe delivers another winner when small-town matchmakers decide a billionaire is the perfect man for a sassy single mom who is too busy for love. 


"This is one of my favorite Romance books EVER!" ~Amazon Reader Review


When single-mom Clare Gray delivers her famous cupcakes to the general store on her way to work, she meets a sexy, out-of-town businessman who is in need of lodging...and match-making locals decide her available-for-rent spare room is the perfect solution.  


After becoming a widowed single mom at eighteen, Clare traded her dreams of love to focus on raising her daughter. The last thing she wants is for a man to invade her life, even if he is deliciously tempting and wonderful with her daughter. But when late-night cupcake baking turns intimate, suddenly her heart is at risk once again.


High-powered executive Griffin Friesé is in town on a personal mission, and he has no time for love. But when he moves into Clare's farmhouse, he soon finds that life doesn't always give you want you want…but it might give you exactly what you need. Gradually, Clare's smile, her passion for life, and her small-town loyalty awaken something inside him, something that makes him yearn for a life, a love, and a family he's never had. 


Can a single mom find the love and family she always wanted with a man afraid to open his heart?  


"What do I wish for?" Clare looked up at the stars, at the way they lit up the sky. "That's what I wish for." She gestured to the expanse of twinkling darkness. "A love so huge and so powerful, that it sweeps across everything. It's always there. It's fuller than a heart can hold, so it spills out into the world and fills everything around it with more love. It's there when I fall asleep. It's there when I wake up." She met Griffin's gaze. "It's there every time I breathe in, every time I breathe out, and with every beat of my heart."


"Heartwarming doesn't even begin to describe this romance! Wow!" ~Vickie R. (Amazon Review)


"I can't say enough good things about this book. I couldn't stop reading once I started." ~Carla E. (Amazon Review)

A Read with Jenna Today Show Book Club Pick!

From the New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth and State of Wonder, comes Ann Patchett’s most powerful novel to date: a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go. The Dutch House is the story of a paradise lost, a tour de force that digs deeply into questions of inheritance, love and forgiveness, of how we want to see ourselves and of who we really are.

At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves.

The story is told by Cyril’s son Danny, as he and his older sister, the brilliantly acerbic and self-assured Maeve, are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another. It is this unshakeable bond between them that both saves their lives and thwarts their futures.

Set over the course of five decades, The Dutch House is a dark fairy tale about two smart people who cannot overcome their past. Despite every outward sign of success, Danny and Maeve are only truly comfortable when they’re together. Throughout their lives they return to the well-worn story of what they’ve lost with humor and rage. But when at last they’re forced to confront the people who left them behind, the relationship between an indulged brother and his ever-protective sister is finally tested.

Saying goodbye is never easy.

Walking away is even harder.

Forgetting your soulmate is impossible.


Joelle

We share the same birthday and breathe the same air. My best friend Nick lives next door and I’ve known him since the day we skipped stones on Pebble Beach. He’s the first person I see each morning and the last person I say good night to before I close my eyes.


My life is his and his is mine. We’re going to grow old together. At least that’s the plan and everything would have been perfect if he didn't choose to leave.


Nick

She’s the girl next door and my dose of daily reality. Joelle has had my heart since the day we shared gum. She’s laughed with me through the good days and cried with me through the rough ones. One day, I’m going to marry her. But first, I have to complete my training. A man can’t be worthy if he doesn’t stand up to protect those he loves, can he?



If you love friends-to-lovers stories about friends who grow up to become lovers, you will love Yours and Mine.


Read about Nick and Joelle’s journey filled with trials and tribulations as they grow up together, endure heartbreak and pain, and allow love, hope and patience to heal their shattered lives.

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK

"[Moore’s] careful balance of the hard-bitten with the heartfelt is what elevates Long Bright River from entertaining page-turner to a book that makes you want to call someone you love.” – The New York Times Book Review
 
"This is police procedural and a thriller par excellence, one in which the city of Philadelphia itself is a character (think Boston and Mystic River). But it’s also a literary tale narrated by a strong woman with a richly drawn personal life – powerful and genre-defying.” – People
 
"A thoughtful, powerful novel by a writer who displays enormous compassion for her characters. Long Bright River is an outstanding crime novel… I absolutely loved it."
—Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

Two sisters travel the same streets, though their lives couldn't be more different. Then one of them goes missing.

In a Philadelphia neighborhood rocked by the opioid crisis, two once-inseparable sisters find themselves at odds. One, Kacey, lives on the streets in the vise of addiction. The other, Mickey, walks those same blocks on her police beat. They don't speak anymore, but Mickey never stops worrying about her sibling.

Then Kacey disappears, suddenly, at the same time that a mysterious string of murders begins in Mickey's district, and Mickey becomes dangerously obsessed with finding the culprit--and her sister--before it's too late.

Alternating its present-day mystery with the story of the sisters' childhood and adolescence, Long Bright River is at once heart-pounding and heart-wrenching: a gripping suspense novel that is also a moving story of sisters, addiction, and the formidable ties that persist between place, family, and fate.
