Sparks fly the night Lana Clarke meets to plan her sister's wedding―and not just because curvaceous Lana announces she's stopped dieting and doesn't care if she's fat as maid of honor.
The strong-willed sister of the bride attracts the attention of the groom's devastatingly handsome best man, Anthony Angelino. But when the sparks become flames, Lana's in trouble. Tony's first wife died mysteriously. Will Lana be next?
Pat Ballard writes romance novels and short stories with Big Beautiful Heroines to show that plus-size women are just as sexy, romantic, and exciting as their slim sisters.
"After I decided to stop the self-destructive fad diets that I had lived on since the age of eleven, and accept myself as who I was born to be, I set about to write romance novels with Big Beautiful Heroines," Ballard says. "But the books aren't just for plus-size women. The message is for all women to love ourselves as we are and stop trying to be something we were never meant to be."
Ballard is also the author of 10 Steps to Loving Your Body (No Matter What Size You Are), which has been called "your body's best friend in pocket form" and has been named one of the Top 100 Best Self-Help Books of All Time by Self-help.fm.

Nina Edwards had no idea of the world Tristan would give her. All her dreams have come true, but with the good comes the bad, and this world of his has more than enough of that. For love, though, she'll face not only Tristan's demons but anyone who stands in her way of finally finding happiness with the man she loves.

(Reluctant Housemates is the third of the four-book Pilgrim Cove series.)
Pilgrim Cove native, Rachel Goodman, has come home for one good reason: to prove to the town and her family that sh'es not a loser. She'd graduated from high school--barely--and gone to college on a swimming scholarship. And now the swimming jock is the new assistant principal for academic studies at Pilgrim Cove High. Her uphill battle to win over the teachers and improve test scores might have gone well except...
Marine biologist, Jack Levine, has a woman in every port, and his boat, The Wanderer, is his most prized possession. When he winds up teaching science in Pilgrim Cove, he finds that he likes the small town very much. So what if he doesn't follow the rules at school? So what if his boss finds him difficult to work with? As for being housemates at Sea View House...? Well, that nearly impossible. Except for the sparks that whenever they're together.
And then Jack and his boat go missing.

He doesn't need to say it back. I know how he feels.
Even if he doesn't have the balls to admit it.
Our daughter will be here soon, and our lives will change forever.
Will Cato let go of the past? Let go of the promise he made to execute me?
Or should I have never come back?
Without Sofie's knowledge, her friend spins a lie about them to impress a pair of businessmen and worse yet, sets Sofie up with one of them.
Also on board is Finn Baxter, an ex-cop private eye hot on the trail of a con man with whom he has a personal vendetta. He has plans for the con man—which he keeps under wraps—but he didn't plan on meeting a feisty red-head and losing his heart.
While Sofie and Finn try to resist their growing attraction, mysterious accidents begin to happen to her. Could the perpetrator be Finn, who always seems to be on the scene of the accidents? Or another man, who may be trying to scare Sofie into his arms? Or a fellow passenger with an unexplained but obvious hatred of Sofie?
What IS clear is that a cruise gets complicated when you start it with a big fat lie!
Candice had always thought she'd been born at the wrong time. She should have been born in the 1800s, when voluptuous women were considered beautiful. She figured that'd be the only way she'd find a man who'd appreciate her body. She'd never considered going back in time to find that man.
Until she did.
Lucas persuaded the woman he'd found passed out in his pasture to get on his horse with him, but she was talking strange again. Maybe the lick on her head was causing her to talk crazy. But he liked the way his arms snugged around her soft curves.
