FEELS LIKE HOME
No one knew what it cost her to come home.
With her career going down in flames and a family history that reads like a bad tabloid, Autumn Maddox can't afford any more PR disasters if she wants to hold her head up in her old home town. So she's going to do the impossible—smile brightly at every insincerely murmured "bless your heart," ignore every not-so-subtle dig, and pretend the town's sexiest bachelor is a eunuch. Well… two out of three isn't bad, right?
Town doctor Jude Southerland is known for two things: saving lives and ducking marriage. So when he almost runs Autumn down in the middle of Main Street and ends up sipping sweet tea with the prodigal daughter a few weeks later, the good townsfolk take notice. As far as Jude's concerned, the last woman anyone would pair him with is the only one he wants.
Jude's determined to be her knight in shining armor, but Autumn gave up on happily ever afters, small southern towns, and herself a long time ago. What's it going to take to convince the Ladies' Auxiliary, the Rotary Club and the woman of his dreams that their love is meant to be?
Chef Bailey Southerland can't get any satisfaction – at least not in the way that really matters. Her love life is like a soufflé that never managed to rise. When the mouthwatering writer with his clear blue eyes moves into the cottage down the hill, it looks like things might finally be going her way. She doesn't need him to be Mr. Right, but he has all the makings of a fantastic Mr. Right Now.
Badly burned by love, Trace Campbell tried to convince himself he's content being just friends with his gorgeous neighbor, Bailey. If he can't get his hands on her at least he can sink them in the soil and grow the produce on his farm that she needs for her restaurant, spending time with her while keeping her at a safe distance. But strawberries are a poor substitute for mind-numbing kisses and when another man shows up and it's obvious he's interested in more than Bailey's cooking, Trace has to dig his head out of the dirt and put his heart on the line or risk losing the woman he loves.
FEELS LIKE FAMILY

After three tours in Afghanistan, Travis Southerland has finally come home. His body is healing, but his heart still aches for his friends who died in combat. He doesn't know if he'll ever be whole, and the last thing he wants is to have someone depending on him for anything ever again.
After family events keep throwing them together, Travis and Summer can't deny the spark between them. Neither of them are interested in a relationship, but a practical arrangement might solve both of their problems and get their families off their backs. Just because they aren't looking for love doesn't mean it won't find them – if either of them is willing to take a chance.
