First Time in Print!

New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis returns to Heartbreaker Bay with a fun and festive holiday novella!

It’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home to the family she hasn’t seen in years. Problem is, her only ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly handsome Max Stranton, and his big, goofy, lovable dog Carl.

Hours stuck in a truck with the dead sexy Max sounds like a fate worse than death (not), but Rory’s out of options. She’s had a crush on Max since high school and she knows he’s attracted to her, too. But they have history… and Max is the only one who knows why it went south.

They’ve done a good job of ignoring their chemistry so far, but a long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just what they need to face their past… and one steamy, snowy night is all it takes to bring Max and Rory together at last.

In the debut of Laura Drewry’s funny, heartwarming Friends First series, a man and a woman learn the hard way that a little bit of love makes staying friends a whole lot harder.
Worn out from the long drive back home, Jayne Morgan can only smirk at the irony: Of course the first person she sees from her old life is Nick Scott. Once best friends, they lost touch when Jayne left town at eighteen, but nothing could keep them apart forever. Jayne has returned to take over her grandmother’s bookstore, determined to put all her bittersweet memories and secret disappointments strictly in the past—until, that is, Nick insists she bunk at his place.
Nick never did care what people thought about having a girl for a best friend—or the “scandal” she caused by showing up to his wife’s funeral four years earlier—so he’s got no problem with the gossips now. Jayne was always the one person he could count on in his life. Now Nick is starting to realize that he never wants her to leave again . . . and that being “just friends” isn’t going to be enough anymore.

Praise for Plain Jayne
“This romance is a tale told well—without being overly steamy—and romance readers will find themselves awake well into the night, rooting for Nick and Jayne.”—Library Journal
“[Plain Jayne is] comical, sweet, cute and refreshingly innocent. It will grab you with its sage and witty eighties’ movie quotes . . . and keep you entertained with a great playlist sung, probably off key, by none other than Jayne, and its witty banter between well-developed characters.”—TJ Loves to Read
“A great friends-to-lovers story . . . If you enjoy slow-burn romance, then you’re in for a real treat.”—Girl Meets Books
“If you’re looking for a wonderfully romantic, touching story to curl up and enjoy, Plain Jayne is the perfect book for you.”—Tome Tender
“Funny, sweet and sad . . . I simply loved this book. . . . Four solid stars.”—You Gotta Read
“An emotional story of friendship, forgiveness, healing and the power of love.”—Red’s Hot Reads
