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.

I always get the math wrong.

Is the third time the charm?

Because I can think of three good reasons not to let Nick Sullivan back into my life.

First, I got over my infatuation with him—cold turkey. So what did he have to offer anyway? Mystery? Adventure? A sexy grin and a killer sense of humor? All of the above, if I think about it. Which I don't. Ever.

Second, he had the nerve to come back! After fifteen years, he shows up looking (better than ever) for a place to hide, with a story about being framed for murder. Only problem is, there's no corpse. As if I'd fall for that old line…

Third, I'm now old enough to know better—and smart enough not to be seduced all over again by the warmth in his eyes. I should give him the boot. But is it murder. And he does need a place to stay. This time it's strictly business. Nothing personal. Just harboring a fugitive. For old times' sake. And just maybe to satisfy my own craving for a little adventure…

So what does that add up to? 

Third Time Lucky.

Two sisters. One disaster.

First things first: I'm the bad twin. While my sister, Marcia, has the perfect family in the perfect suburb, I've been making my living as an Internet advice columnist and designing Web sites in my downtown loft. I always thought I had the right answer—and hair color—for any occasion. That is, until Marcia ran up loads of debt and ran out on her husband and kids, and I was left helping to pick up the pieces. Her husband, James, is a lawyer who I hate on principle alone.

But for a guy who's just lost his job, his marriage, and his expensive toys, he's keeping it together—and making me rethink my feelings toward him. It's not that he's traded in his conservative suits for sexy jeans. It's that he's not giving up what's important to him, and oh baby, I'm a sucker for a guy who hangs tough.

That doesn't mean I'm ready to step into Marcia's designer shoes now that she's gone A.W.O.L.

And it doesn't mean that I'm going to fall for James' easy charm…not again, anyhow. Besides, I've had a lifelong policy of not being mistaken for my twin and I'm not backing down on that one now—no matter how convenient it might be for a certain sexy (and persuasive) man...

Can you know what you want before you have it?

Or do you have to lose it know for sure?

Mild-mannered Matt Coxwell has finally found something worth fighting for. In fact, it's only after he's left his marriage that he realizes he hasn't fought this hard for anything since he fell like a ton of bricks for his wife Leslie. How did their marriage shift from idyllic into idle? And is there any way back?

Leslie Coxwell, long rumored to be the most organized working mother alive, is suddenly having a tough time coping. Her job's in jeopardy, her teenage daughter has attitude to spare (well, that's not new), and her formidable mother-in-law has moved in unexpectedly…with two very large poodles

She could juggle it all with the right motivation. Unfortunately, her husband, Matt—the motivation for everything Leslie has ever done—turned into a sexy enigmatic stranger right before he walked out the door. Even better, he's gone to stay with his free-spirited ex-fiancé, the one woman who makes Leslie feel as sexy as dirty dishwater.

The only good news is that Leslie still has the greatest lingerie collection known to womankind and she's prepared to use it. After all, to give her marriage one more chance, to take the chance on falling in love one more time, she'll need all the support she can get...

Some people will do anything for love—even if they have to fake it.

Jen Maitland had no use for handsome guys with easy charm—until she met Zach. He's the perfect fake date to end her mother's matchmaking scheme before it starts. Besides, he'd probably just use her and leave her like her ex-fiancé did. At least that's what Jen tells herself. The only problem is that Zach isn't as predictable as he appears…

Zach Coxwell hates commitment, but loves a challenge. Like the pretty bar waitress who turned him down flat for a date—only to invite him to her family's Thanksgiving dinner. Zach knows he can make Jen smile—and he's betting that he can unravel her mysteries—even if he has to do it over candied yams.

A tofu turkey, a sister who threatens to have Zach's love-child, the untimely appearance of a knitted avocado—and Zach's discovery of her real motive—combine to turn Thanksgiving dinner into Jen's worst nightmare. Zach, on the other hand, has the time of his life. And when he makes Jen smile, he finally finds a commitment he's willing to make…but persuading Jen to believe him will take everything he's got.

What if Amy wants his alter ego more than Tyler?

2. Addicted to Love

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

Synopsis

Jade Roberts’s love for Talon Steel is the real deal, and she’s more determined than ever to help him come to grips with whatever is haunting him. To that end, she continues her investigation of the Steels…and unknowingly attracts some dangerous foes from their shrouded history.

Talon loves Jade deeply and longs to possess her forever, so he faces his worst fears and exposes his rawest wounds in an attempt to heal. The road is icy and treacherous, but if he perseveres and comes out whole on the other side, he’ll finally be worthy of Jade’s love.

The untamed passion between the two still blazes, but as the horrors of Talon’s past resurface, Jade and Talon aren’t safe…


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
