Baby, It's Cold Outside (Fire & Ice) by Genevieve Jourdin

Baby, It’s Cold Outside (Fire & Ice) by Genevieve Jourdin

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
It’s brutal moving from lover to acquaintance in a moment. Just when he thought life couldn’t get any better he’s suddenly feeling it couldn’t be any worse. Carter’s got the love of his longtime dream girl. At least, he did until Justine’s accident made her forget that they were involved. He’s got to pull out all the stops to help her remember or his future is going to go completely off of the rails. Good thing he’s got a plan…                                         ***Due to language and sexual content, this book is not suitable for people under 17, people who find course language offensive, those with prudish tastes, and most importantly, readers who don’t think a younger man is HOT.  
Do you ever want to know what the hero of a romance novel is thinking? Where Just Add Heat tells Justine’s story, Baby, It’s Cold Outside gives you Carter’s version of the same events. It’s true what they say; men and women don’t think in the same way. The difference is all in the perspective!

This is the companion book to Just Add Heat, but the story stands alone.
@48,000 words

About the Author:
Just Add Heat is told from Justine’s point of view. She has to discover what she is blocking out on her own, and showing a history that she has no knowledge of would make the story of getting her memory back a pointless exercise. I wanted to be able to share a bit of their back story, though, so after every chapter I wrote, I would start over and write the entire scene from the hero’s perspective. It was fun to write a story that was running parallel to the original, and it was something I’d often wished for in books told in first person POV. When I was finished, I had two novels that mirrored each other, but the tone of each was different, as each story was told in the voice of the character experiencing it. Baby, It’s Cold Outside is Carter’s version of the same events, and it gives a bit of insight into their relationship in its pre-amnesia days. To see how their relationship got it’s start, read PreHeat, the prequel novelette.

A Contemporary Inspirational Love Story

When obsession and love blend, and darkness consumes the mind and spirit, is it even possible to recognize the light?

Set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, nineteen-year-old Avery Nichols embarks on a journey of love, loss and recognition that perfection is often an illusion. Avery finds herself drawn to two men — one troubled, one committed to the truth. To choose between them, she must learn about unconditional love and self-worth.

It is the beginning of her sophomore year at Winsor University, and Avery is determined that nothing will stop her momentum, not even the internal battle she has fought for four years. Forced to live on campus because of her alumni scholarship, Avery is thrilled when she is placed in the coveted University Apartments and is swept away by her roommate’s cousin, Jake, whose charm and charisma touches every part of her soul and shatters every piece of her heart. Broken and lost, Avery meets Parker, a man who not only offers her hope, but also teaches her to love in ways she never thought possible.

Jake is complicated and damaged, fighting to find his way after the loss of his mother, and despite his every attempt to stop it, Avery gets behind his defenses and forces him to feel once again. He doesn’t want to love her, but can’t let her go. Parker is genuine, honest, and falls for Avery the moment he sees her. He wants nothing more than to love her, if she would only let him.

Myriah Fire by Claudy Conn

Myriah Fire by Claudy Conn

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
It started with a stolen kiss …
Fiery Myriah Whitney is wild of nature, contrary, and independent. But when her father catches her kissing the handsome Sir Roland (how else is she to determine if he is the one who will make her feel thunder and lightning, hear bells and music?), he declares that her days of headstrong independence are over. She will, he commands, announce her engagement to Sir Roland—immediately.

But in an age where marriages are about alliances rather than affection, practicality not passion, Myriah wants more—she wants to fall in love. And she does not love Sir Roland. So she runs away to her grandfather with her faithful manservant, Tabson, at her side.

A wrong turn in the fog, however, leads to the discovery of an injured young man, and before she knows it Myriah is caught up in world of intrigue and secrets. And when she meets the young man’s older brother, the mysterious Lord Kit Wimborne, the sparks fly. Their first encounter—in his bed, both of them naked, no less!—is an explosion of wills, and it is what finally set Myriah on fire.

She has, it seems, finally found her thunder and lightning…

She lay staring in utter disbelief
at the stranger she was still holding in her arms

Lantern in hand, Kit moved upstairs to his bedchamber. He was surprised the drapes in his room had been pulled tight but was too tired to contemplate the mystery. He set the lit lantern on a side table and shrugged out of his clothes. He then picked up the lantern and made his way to his bed, setting the lantern on the nightstand. However, there he stopped short.
Someone with long, flaming ringlets of hair was lying face down, covered only to her waist—in his bed!
His first thought made him grin. His puppy of a brother had no doubt brought her home with him, but why would the rascal send her off to his bedchamber?
Drape mystery solved, and another one to contemplate.
“Now what to do with you, sweet,” he murmured. Grinning, as he thought, One shouldn’t infringe on one’s brother’s property—but really, Billy, why the devil did you put her in my bed? This question repeated itself, and still grinning, his lordship decided the only thing to do in such a situation was to wake her—his way!
He nibbled at her delicate ears and placed a warm kiss on her throat. She groaned pleasurably. The sound stimulated him, and he leaned over her and took her mouth with

Hope Breaks by Alice Bello

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Hope Breaks is about a young woman trying to hold onto the career she just began. It’s about the newness of love, and how easily it can break. It’s about the past, good friends, good food and laughter.

*****

Hope Jones has two problems: one is new, the other is depressingly old.

The new problem: the bestselling author the publisher she shoots romance novel covers for hates her newest batch of covers. She has until the end of the week to come up with a breathtaking shot or she’ll be replaced. And there’s a sudden model shortage; they’re out of season.

The old, depressing problem: she hasn’t had a date, sex or a relationship in over two years.

She also has one hell of a headache.

Hope finds the cures for her two problems during a search through Wal-Mart for a painkiller to kill her headache.

Turns out the aisles of the retail giant are rampant with hot young model worthy specimens. And when her trusty Ford Taurus breaks down in the parking lot, a hunky mechanic in the Tire and Lube Express department fixes more than just her car.

Seemingly her troubles are good as gone…but then her new, fabulous cover is rejected, and in a desperate moment she has to choose between keeping her job and keeping the man she’s just starting to fall in love with.
