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.

“Sophie Love's ability to impart magic to her readers is exquisitely wrought in powerfully evocative phrases and descriptions….This is the perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

--Midwest Book Review (Diane Donovan re For Now and Forever)

35 year old Emily Mitchell has fled her job, apartment and ex-boyfriend in New York City for her father's historic, abandoned home on the coast of Maine, needing a change in her life and determined to make it work as a B&B. She had never expected, though, that her relationship with its caretaker, Daniel, would turn her life on its head.

In FOREVER AND A DAY, Emily is stunned to finally, after 20 years, meet her missing father—just a week before her wedding. Their reunion changes both of their lives, and unlocks the key to the house’s many secrets, and to Emily’s missing memories.

Spring has finally arrived at Sunset Harbor, and with just a week to go until the big wedding date, the wedding preparations are busier than ever, including Daniel’s surprise talk of a honeymoon. Will Emily and Daniel have their dream wedding? Or will someone appear to tear it apart?

Meanwhile, Chantelle’s custody battle comes to a pitch, and as Memorial Day looms, they must figure out what to do with Trevor’s house. Yet amidst all of this, another issue weighs most heavily on Emily’s mind: will she herself ever be pregnant?

FOREVER AND A DAY is book #5 in a dazzling new romance series that will make you laugh, cry, keep you turning pages late into the night—and make you fall in love with romance all over again.

Book #6 will be available soon.

“A very well written novel, describing the struggle of a woman (Emily) to find her true identity. The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”

When a wealthy business mogul visits a small Maine town, local matchmakers decide he's the perfect man for a widowed single mom who has long ago given up on love. 


"Absolutely loved it." ~Maria R (GooglePlay Review)


The last thing Clare Gray has time for is a man. She has a teenage daughter, a business, and friends who have her back. Who needs to complicate that with a man? She learned her lesson with her first marriage, and she has no intention of giving up her freedom for a knight in shining armor…even if he is a drool-worthy, out-of-town billionaire who swoops in to save her in a raging storm, with his luxury SUV and high-class life.


Griffin Friesé has four days in Birch Crossing to fix the worst mistake of his life. If he fails, he'll lose the one thing that matters to him: his daughter. But when he rescues a sassy, vulnerable single mom on his way into town, his carefully-ordered world is instantly upended. He has no time in his life for love…but her warmth and zest for life ignite a spark inside him that is too addictive to resist.


When the town's residents decide he and Clare are meant for each other, Griffin discovers he must dig deep to become the man he was meant to be…or lose it all forever.

FOREVER INNOCENT
A Top 100 Book

"Our baby died on prom night, and nothing was ever the same again." 

Corabelle doesn't feel like any of the other college girls. On what should have been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never returned. 

Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters. The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction. 

When Gavin shows up in her astronomy class four years later, he is hell-bent on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she can't resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love completely. And once again, she'll lose the only person who always believed she was innocent.


BOOK 2: FOREVER LOVED

"Delivered with sensitivity, brutal honesty, emotional scenes, and an everlasting hope that love can conquer all." -- Hesperia Loves Books
"Did I cry? Oh yeah, but not for the same reasons as before. Will this book stay on my shelf for years to come! You betcha!" -- 2 Bookaholics
"READ it, IT IS WORTH IT." -- Book Addicts Not So Anonymous
"It is definitely heartwarming to see their story resolve the way it did." -- Lovin Los Libros

After four long years of separation, Gavin has finally reunited with his childhood love Corabelle. She’s forgiven him for leaving her during the funeral of their seven-day-old baby, and also for where he ended up — in Mexico to get a vasectomy. 

But a message from Rosa, a prostitute he met the day of his surgery, brings his life to a crashing halt. She claims Gavin has fathered a son, now three years old and living with her cousin in Ensenada. He doesn’t know if he can trust Rosa, who never mentioned the boy before, or if his delicate reconciliation with Corabelle can withstand the shock if it is true. 

Corabelle believes their future together is the right thing despite their past. But when she learns of this other child, the one thing she lost long ago and might never have again with Gavin, Corabelle’s faith that her life will ever follow her old dream is shattered. To make things right for Gavin and his son, she just might have to let go of the only person she always believed would be her forever love. 

Forever Loved is the heart-wrenching conclusion to Gavin and Corabelle's passionate story. 

BOOK 3: FOREVER SHELTERED

"Hooked me from Chapter 1." -- Fire and Ice Book Reviews
"Put this on your TBR list and bump it to the top." -- Eat Sleep Read Blog
"Intriguing, romantic, funny, and emotional." -- Bibliolatry Me Book Blog
"Make an appointment to visit Dr. Darion and Tina for your next reading therapy. They have a cure for the hopeless romantic." -- Michel, Smut Book Junkie

Tina would rather sew up her girl parts with dental floss than go on a second date with a man. She's been dumped enough to know not to get attached. 

But when Dr. Darion Marks comes into her art therapy room to ask a favor for a special patient, Tina recognizes the haunted look he buries beneath his stoic professionalism. So rather than be forced to ditch the handsome doctor after a single night, she decides not to date him at all. 

So how exactly DO they end up half-naked in Surgical Suite B? 

Dr. Darion has a lot to hide. His baby sister is the only family he has left, and he’s not leaving her treatment to some incompetent hack. 

But now he’s breaking every hospital rule imaginable. He lied about his sister so he can manage her care, and now he’s banging the art therapy teacher between patient rounds like a fraternity boy at a keg party. 

Nobody believes this can end well, not Tina’s friend Corabelle, who is overcoming a tragic history much like Tina’s, or even pink-haired Jenny, who thinks sex with strangers is good for your metabolism. 

But Dr. Darion and Tina have one thing going for them – a fierce passion for each other that just might obliterate all their doubts, and solve all their problems. 

Forever Sheltered includes many favorite characters from Forever Innocent and Forever Loved, as well as the much-anticipated wedding of Gavin and Corabelle.

True Colors is New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah's most provocative, compelling, and heart-wrenching story yet. With the luminous writing and unforgettable characters that are her trademarks, she tells the story of three sisters whose once-solid world is broken apart by jealousy, betrayal, and the kind of passion that rarely comes along.

The Grey sisters have always been close. After their mother's death, the girls banded together, becoming best friends. Their stern, disapproving father cares less about his children than about his reputation. To Henry Grey, appearances are everything, and years later, he still demands that his daughters reflect his standing in the community.

Winona, the oldest, needs her father's approval most of all. An overweight bookworm who never felt at home on the sprawling horse ranch that has been in her family for three generations, she knows that she doesn't have the qualities her father values. But as the best lawyer in town, she's determined to someday find a way to prove her worth to him.

Aurora, the middle sister, is the family peacemaker. She brokers every dispute and tries to keep them all happy, even as she hides her own secret pain.

Vivi Ann is the undisputed star of the family. A stunningly beautiful dreamer with a heart as big as the ocean in front of her house, she is adored by all who know her. Everything comes easily for Vivi Ann, until a stranger comes to town. . . .

In a matter of moments, everything will change. The Grey sisters will be pitted against one another in ways that none could have imagined. Loyalties will be tested and secrets revealed, and a terrible, shocking crime will shatter both their family and their beloved town.

With breathtaking pace and penetrating emotional insight, True Colors is an unforgettable novel about sisters, rivalry, forgiveness, redemption---and ultimately, what it means to be a family.
