The Coxwells Boxed Set: Four Contemporary Romances

Deborah A. Cooke
Free sample

 Three brothers and a sister find themselves on the adventure to romance and happily-ever-after in this bestselling series of contemporary romances and romantic comedies by Deborah Cooke. 

When Philippa’s high school crush turns up on her doorstep, she knows better than to trust the bad boy who broke her heart. Nick proves that he’s determined to fix his past mistakes in Third Time Lucky – does Philippa dare to give him another chance? 

In Double Trouble, self-reliant Maralys breaks her own rules to help out her twin sister’s husband and kids when her sister walks out forever. If it’s because she has a soft spot for James—or unfinished business with him—she’s not going to admit it. But James is better at understanding Maralys than she realizes, and he soon realizes that their second chance at love is their best shot at happiness. 

In One More Time, Matt walks out of his marriage to Leslie, his mother-in-law unexpectedly moves in while he visits an old girlfriend, their teenage daughter shows even more attitude and a pair of resident poodles add mayhem to Leslie’s quest for the magic that once made their marriage work. Can they find the balance again? In All or Nothing, bad boy Zach meets a cute waitress who isn’t easily charmed and (even) turns him down. A cancer survivor, Jen knows better than to get involved with guys who will only disappear when it matters. When her mother decides to play matchmaker, though, Jen decides that Zach would make a great fake date, only to discover that he has a lot more to offer than she expects.

Kyle wants it all...
Kyle Stuyvesant doesn't believe in love and romance. His parents taught him there’s no such thing as forever, and he took the lesson to heart. After all, there's only one woman who ever tempted him to more than a single, hot night together. Fortunately for his convictions, she's married to another guy. Problem solved—until Lauren's husband cheats and Kyle isn't just the bearer of bad news, but the man she turns to for comfort.

Lauren demands it all...
When Lauren's marriage implodes, she wants to lose herself in pleasure and sensation. Who knows that territory better than Kyle who seduced her so deliciously years before? It was a night Lauren never forgot, and now that she wants to start again, Kyle is the only man she wants. Will she be able to accept his terms of no love or romance? When Lauren can’t get enough, will Kyle take a chance on wanting more?

Deborah Cooke's Flatiron Five World.

Once upon a recession, five friends banded together to find success. Ten years later, their exclusive fitness club, Flatiron Five, is the hottest destination in Manhattan. People flock to F5 to get fit, to get lucky, and even, to fall in love. The founding partners have been immune to F5’s spell—at least, so far...

The Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances and romantic comedies are set in New York City, and feature the partners in a successful gym. The books should be read in order.

1. Simply Irresistible
Tyler needs a fake date for his sister's wedding and the pretty woman who works in his building seems like the perfect choice. Little does he know that Amy has a taste for hot romance novels, much less that he'll take on a secret identity to ensure that he's the one to fulfill her fantasies. What if Amy wants his alter ego more than Tyler?

2. Addicted to Love
Kyle has always known that Ty's sister Lauren is the One, even before he realized she was Ty's sister. He also knows that he isn't the right guy for her and that he'll only let her down. When Lauren's marriage collapses, though, and she asks Kyle for sexual satisfaction, he can't say no to a fling. In this second chance romance, both Kyle and Lauren have to reconsider their assumptions. Can they find a happily ever after together?

3. In the Midnight Hour
Haley wants to learn therapeutic massage and the guy who visits his mom at the hospital and eases her pain with his touch is clearly the teacher she needs. He's also incredibly hot. She learns a lot more from Damon than she anticipates, when his touch awakens her sensual side, but Damon knows his nightmares mean he can never fall asleep with anyone. He thinks he's better off alone, but can Haley heal him with her love?

4. Some Guys Have All the Luck
Cassie returns home to the small town she couldn't wait to leave, only to meet the high school bad boy one more time. Reid is a local success, against all odds, but just as tempting as before. Cassie surrenders to a fling, just to satisfy her curiosity, not realizing that Reid wants a whole lot more. In fact, he's hoping to convince Cassie to stay this time...

5. Going to the Chapel
This short story is subtitled Two Weddings and a Baby, which pretty much tells you what it's about.

6. Bad Case of Loving You (January 2019)

In In the Midnight Hour, the partners add a tattoo shop to F5's services for members. A legendary tattoo artist, Chynna, runs the shop and gives away a tattoo on each full moon. The rumor is that the tattoo will bring true love to the recipient. Cassie gets the first one in In the Midnight Hour. 

The Secret Heart Ink series are shorter contemporary romances, telling the stories of those full moon tattoos and their bearers. They should be read in order. The first three feature three friends who were on a girls' weekend in NYC when one of them won the first tattoo.

She's always wanted her best friend's brother, Spencer, and she's leaving the country. Her best friends help her plan one seduction, an hour with Spencer that will disguise her identity from him - but once Spencer realizes it's Olivia who is seducing him, he changes all the rules in his determination to turn this fling into forever.

2. Spring Fever
Reyna wants a taste of the new resident in town, a hot guy who walks like a cop and is just what she believes she needs to end a long run of celibacy. But Kade wants more than just sex with the gorgeous woman who runs the most successful business in town, selling cupcakes - he intends to unravel Reyna's secrets and once he starts, there's no stopping him from falling love. Can he convince Reyna to take a chance on love again?

3. One Hot Summer Night
One hot summer night, Lexi takes a chance and seduces Gabe, whose intensity and principles have interested her for a long time. Little does she realize that Gabe has been waiting for her to make a choice, so that he can share a secret with her. The revelation changes Lexi's life, but can she find a way to have a future with Gabe? 

4. Under the Mistletoe (coming 2018)
Chynna, the tattoo artist, travels to Honey Hill for Gabe and Lexi's wedding, never guessing that she'll find some romance of her own over Christmas. Can Trevor convince her to try for forever, or are Chynna's scars too deep?

Every Friday night, the F5 partner who is the quiet powerhouse leaves on the dot of five without explanation. Where does Damon go? What does he do? His partners want to know, but Damon can’t bring himself to share the truth about his mom’s battle with cancer. She’s the anchor in his life and he doesn’t know how he’ll go on without her. In the middle of the night, when he’s most alone, he wants to control all the variables for someone, to prove he’s not completely powerless. He doesn’t expect to find such a willing, or seductive, volunteer.

Haley loves solving mysteries…
Especially ones like the gorgeous guy who visits her favorite patient every Friday night. He must be Natasha’s son, but is he also the model on the billboard for that fitness club downtown? Where did he learn therapeutic massage? Even though she’s a nurse, Haley’s interest in him and his skill isn’t just professional. She wants to feel those hands on her own skin, for as long as possible. One night, she takes a chance and asks for a lesson from him, only to discover that she has a hunger for the sensation only Damon can satisfy.

One act of passion can save the world…

Scientist Alexandra Madison was on the verge of unveiling an invention that would change the world. Then her partner was murdered, their lab was burned, and their prototype was destroyed. While Alex is in the hospital recovering from burns suffered in the fire, recurring dragon-haunted nightmares threaten to land her in the psychiatric ward, but she knows she has to escape to her lab to rebuild the Green Machine.

Handsome, daring, and impulsive, Donovan Shea is more than willing to do his part in the Pyr/Slayer war. Assigned to protect Alex, Donovan is shocked when her presence ignites his firestorm. He has no desire for a destined mate, but Alex’s intelligence and determination inspire him to join the fight to save her invention. With the Slayers closing in, Donovan knows he would surrender his life for Alex…and lose his heart to possess her.

“Epic battles, suspense, ecological concerns, humor, and romance are highlights that readers can expect in this tale. Excellent writing, a smart story, and exceptional characters earn this novel the RRT Perfect 10 Rating. Don’t miss the very highly recommended KISS OF FURY.”—Romance Reviews Today
