When Ellie spent a summer with her mum on a Wiltshire commune in the 90s it was a bigger disaster than Leo DiCaprio’s trip aboard the Titanic – so fleeing to America seemed a perfect plan.
But now, with her marriage falling apart, running back to her mum seems like the only option for her and her son Josh.
She wasn’t expecting Art, the boy she once had a crush on to still be working at Willow Tree Farm...And still be as hot and bothersome as he was when they were teenagers.
Ellie came to Willow Tree Farm for a fresh start. But is she ready to risk sailing her life – and her heart – into another iceberg?
And the Bride Wore Prada...
She’s dated Mr Darcy...
Hounded by the paparazzi ever since news of their engagement broke, Gemma and Dominic are flying to Scotland for a romantic getaway. But they didn’t expect to find Dominic’s ex, Natalie, and her husband Rhys, on the very same flight – or to be snowed in!
Where better for a discreetly decadent wedding than in the middle of nowhere? But marrying an A-lister away from prying eyes was never going to be easy. Will Gemma make it up the aisle? And, more importantly, now she’s miles away from Vera Wang, what is this fashionista going to wear?!
Love, Lies and Liability...
The course of a celebrity marriage never did run smooth...
Gemma Heath has managed to get her rock-star husband Dominic to settle down – and has the ring to prove it! But when she sees photos of Dominic on his private jet with the latest pop sensation, Gemma can’t help but assume the worst.
When her old flame Jack resurfaces, Gemma can’t resist engaging in some extra-marital flirtation of her own. But she wasn’t prepared for her old attraction to resurface!

She’s a fiancée of good fortune...

But losing herself in the moment is impossible, since she’s still fuming after meeting English lawyer Hugh Darcy. He’s easily the most arrogant man in Manhattan...so why can’t Holly stop thinking about him? Suddenly, Holly’s torn between three eligible bachelors...and it’s proving more difficult than choosing between a Manolo Blanik and a Jimmy Choo – especially since men are non-refundable!

After what her ex-husband did to her, heiress Henna Colombo is a man-hater, not a dater. And the thing she hates most of all is the fairytale of falling in love.
Why do her father and her new wicked stepmother insist she keeps looking for her prince? And why at The Perfect Date? Only the most pathetic losers use a dating service.
She’s fine being single. As far as Henna’s concerned, the love god can take his diaper-wrapped butt and arrows elsewhere. Cupid can also shove those arrows where the sun doesn’t shine if he thinks for one second that someone like Vassal Milano is her perfect man.
Vassal’s perfect alright—perfect at sneaking around behind her back. Just like her ex, she caught him kissing someone else.
No… she didn’t confront Vassal about it. Why would she put herself through all that heartache and torture again? Outside of a few unforgettable kisses, she and Vassal were only friends anyway. Cupid’s arrow missed her that time—thankfully.
As for the whole dating thing and looking for any sort of honorable Prince Charming? Forget it. No such man exists. Luckily, Henna doesn’t care.

Discovering the truth after all these years was never going to be simple, but Emily will stop at nothing to uncover her past... even if her heart is getting in the way!
