Lost and Found: 8 Learning-to-Love-Again Romances

Risking their bruised hearts for a second chance at love is a dangerous prospect for these widows and widowers, but risk definitely has its rewards…

The Election Connection: War widow Lily Ashton’s heart is closed to love, so she’s the perfect choice to play fiancée to help secure a re-election for her pal, Congressman Ford Richardson. But as they work together, their not-quite engagement starts to feel much more real than either is ready to admit.

Luc: Widow and erotic romance author Liz Anderson moved home to the small town of Angel Bay to heal her broken heart. She’s so not ready when friends set her up with a single father ten years her junior. But this hot young chef is igniting her long-dormant desire. Too bad the last thing Luc Rossi’s life has room for is romance. Or can they cook up something that might last a lifetime?

Her Faux Fiancé: Hotshot lawyer Erik Sigurdson breezes into town determined to survive a two-week family reunion. He makes his ex, widowed combat photographer Analise Thordarson, an irresistible offer: pretend to be his fiancée and he’ll pay off her grandfather’s debts. But when their fake engagement is complicated by a very real pregnancy, they must sort out just who is using whom and if this sham relationship could lead to a real future.

Drawn to Jonah: New York-trained artist Quinn Baker is back home in Scallop Shores to reconnect with her family and figure out what to do with her life. Then handyman Jonah Goodwin asks an intriguing favor: teach him to read. Illiteracy has kept widower Jonah from forging friendships and building a career his daughter could be proud of, and hiding his secret has always been a full-time job. Yet something about Quinn inspires trust—but can she show him that he, too, is deserving of love?

But when a broken foot sends her to the clinic and Dr. Colin Calaway, sparks fly. Widowed Colin is ready to give love another shot, but he’s the father of one of her students. Is happily ever after worth the risk?

All About Charming Alice: Quirky Alice Treemont has given up hope of finding love in rural Blake’s Folly, Nevada, where she spends her time rescuing unwanted dogs and protecting snakes. That is, until dashing and well-to-do author Jace Constant comes to town to research his new book. Opposites indeed attract, and soon the whole town is determined to make a love match.

In Plain Sight: Widow Misty Starr has fled her past to settle in Pine Falls, New York, where she feels safe enough to sing in an amateur theater revival of Jesus Christ Superstar. Then dashing Nick Anthony joins the cast and stirs up feelings she thought long dead. The doctors say there’s nothing wrong with his vision, yet the former concert pianist and secret CIA courier has been blind since the accident that killed his wife.
