In this warm, charming, and hilarious romance, a kindergarten teacher and children’s book author attempts to write erotica—and sets out to find the right Mr. Wrong for some hands-on inspiration.

Lettie Osbourne has lived her whole life by the book. Sweet, predictable, and certainly not living life on the edge, she’s always been content to make a living as a kindergarten teacher who writes adorable children’s books on the side. After her fiancé leaves her, Lettie decides she is perfectly content to accept her fate as mother to her beloved dog Odin and favorite auntie to her niece and nephew.

But then everything changes.

When Lettie’s publisher decides to sell only erotica, her editor convinces her to turn up the heat and throw some spice into her vanilla life. Lettie sets out to find the perfect man to inspire her writing...and finds him in her school’s vice principal, Eric Clayman. As Lettie and Eric grow closer and her writing gets steamier, she’s left wondering: is Eric Mr. Wrong? Or Mr. Right?

Le voile de l’ombre, Nathalie Charles
Dans sept jours, tu seras morte... En découvrant ce message dans un de ses dossiers, le procureur Libby Andrews a d’abord cru à une macabre plaisanterie, destinée à lui faire peur... Au fil des jours, pourtant, alors que de nouvelles menaces lui parviennent, elle sent une sourde angoisse la gagner. Se pourrait-il que Nick Foster, son ex-fiancé, qui est persuadé qu’elle est en danger et qu’une véritable course contre la montre s’est engagée avec le tueur, ait raison ? Libby est désemparée. D’autant que Nick la déteste depuis leur rupture, elle le sait bien, et n’a proposé de la protéger que par pure conscience professionnelle, puisqu’il est agent au FBI. Malgré tout, elle est soulagée de le savoir à ses côtés. Au moins, dans ce cauchemar où chaque second compte, ils sont ensemble...

Une protection inattendue, Linda Turner
Depuis qu’elle a fait la connaissance de Logan St. John, Abby ne peut s’empêcher de rêver à une histoire d’amour avec lui. Journaliste de renom, Logan est également beau, drôle, gentil... Mais, bouleversé par la mort récente de son épouse, il lui a bien fait comprendre qu’il n’a que son amitié à lui offrir. Et puis de toute façon, qui voudrait d’une femme comme elle, maladroite et bien trop timide ? Pourtant, elle trouve en Logan un soutien inattendu quand, alors qu’elle soupçonne son patron de toucher des pots-de-vin, elle lui fait part de ses doutes. Et lorsque, quelques jours plus tard, elle se met à recevoir des menaces, il va jusqu’à lui proposer de venir habiter chez lui, et lui promet de la protéger...
From the author of the “delightful and entertaining” (Library Journal) Seeking Mr. Wrong comes a charming romance following a woman who leaves home to forget the man who broke her heart and discovers the love that was waiting for her.

Mindy Ling is a broken woman.

After finding out that her best friend Chase—who she’s been in love with for years—is getting married, she escapes her troubles to spend some quality time with her grandmother in a small seaside town in Connecticut. She hopes to distract herself by staying in one of the guest cottages at her grandmother’s quaint bed and breakfast and helping the innkeeper with the day-to-day activities. But after she learns that the innkeeper is literally running a house of ill repute, Mindy becomes determined to put an end to it. And a handsome local named Brett seems to be just the person she needs to help her.

Beneath his unassuming exterior, Brett Hannigan keeps many secrets. Locally he is referred to as the People Walker, but little else is known about the handsome stranger who captivates Mindy’s interest and provides a welcome distraction from Chase. Mindy discovers that Brett is kind but broken: a man who has higher walls than she can scale. But something tells her that if only she can reach him, she might find everything she’s been looking for.

In this charming romance perfect for fans of Kristan Higgins and Lauren Layne, Natalie Charles shows us that sometimes it takes a broken heart to find just the right person to fix it.
