RIDING THE PAUSE
Rachel Southerland's life runs on a tight schedule. She's never met a variable she couldn't control and likes it that way. But when a job loss threatens her orderly world and her identity, she sets off on the Appalachian Trail to find peace in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Ian Maxwell hasn't worn a watch for years, waking with the sun and working all day in the forest he loves. On the surface his life seems unambitious, but still waters run deep, and Ian has secrets of his own.
When a chance meeting in the quiet shadow of the mountains throws them together, Ian tries to hold on to his calm and help Rachel find hers. But she hits his life like a hurricane, sending waves barreling through his peace. Can they work together to find something richer than either of them imagined or will what they thought they wanted keep them from seeing the love standing right in front of them?
A LITTLE BIT CLOSER
Blake Southerland is tired. Building an empire is hard work and his meteoritic rise in wealth and power has come at a steep cost. He misses the family he's always been close to, and although he has absolutely no desire to follow his siblings down the path to true love and happily ever after, he's tired of Skyping into family events instead of showing up in person. He doesn't need to fall in love; he needs a chance to find his center and the peace that comes from going home.
Samantha Braxton was raised as the only child of emotionally distant parents in a posh London neighborhood. Growing up, she had everything a child could want except the love and warmth she craves. When she has the opportunity to travel to Virginia with her outrageously sexy boss, she jumps at the chance to ditch her sheltered upbringing for a real adventure.
But will Blake's big pushy loving family overwhelm or charm her and will the clash of their cultures be one more wedge between them or will the beautiful English rose help the jaded businessman find his way home?
LOVE AT THE LOST & FOUND
Taylor Southerland is about to quit. Again. Architectural restoration is the most recent in a long line of careers that don't fit. She wants something to feel passionate about and worries her inevitable job description might begin and end as someone's wife. Before she can figure out her next move, she has to finish the job she was hired for, which means finding a way to work with the fast talking Yankee responsible for the metal work, who seems intent on planting his sexy broad shoulders and tattooed biceps in her path.
Welder and Jersey native, Matthew Thorne has enough on his plate completing the restoration work on his latest project. The last thing he needs is a spoiled Southern belle sticking her nose in his business. He just wants to finish the work he was hired to do, so he can get back on his bike and move on to the next job, especially when she's a complication he doesn't need. She might be smart, funny and sexy, but she's also a major distraction – and distractions and blowtorches are a bad combination.
Taylor thinks he's dangerous and Matthew's sure she's trouble, but it doesn't stop things from heating up between them. With sparks flying, can they see past their misconceptions to find the truth buried under the rubble or are the biker and the belle destined to stay lost to each other?
The recluse billionaire of New York
Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.
So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money.
We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding.
I’m impatient and inexperienced.
The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets.
And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
