Memories by Deanna Lynn Sletten

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
** Memories was chosen as a semifinalist in the Kindle Book Review’s Best
Indie Books of 2012! **

Michael DeCara came home from the Vietnam War a wounded man, both physically and emotionally. He tried putting his life back together, but found civilian life difficult after all he’d experienced in Nam. Raising his young daughter, Vanessa, by himself after his wife left, he found it difficult to commit to one job or one woman for any length of time. Then he met a young woman who made him feel good about himself again and who fell in love with Vanessa as well. But then a life-changing event occurred and he had to choose between his past and the present. He chose to leave without a word to the young woman, believing he was doing what was best for her. Now, years later, she has walked back into his life and he believes they may have a second chance at love-except she hates him and he doesn’t understand why.

Danielle Westerly fell in love when she was only eighteen and her heart was broken when he left her without a word. Her heartache was increased when she made a fateful decision that would alter her future, and she blamed him for her loss. Years later, she is single and has built up a successful career when she accidently runs into the man who was responsible for her past pain. Yet, their chemistry is undeniable. Can Dani give up her anger and let go of the pain of the past and fall in love again with the man she has hated all these years?

Dani and Michael share a journey of heartache, loss and painful memories that threaten to keep them apart. Can they break past these and finally find love again?

**Bonus –  Memories contains the first three chapters of Deanna’s latest romance novel, SARA’S PROMISE.**

Angel on Fire (Angel Investigations) by Jacquie Johnson

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
All Angela wants is to understand why her father, security specialist Mac McKenzie, dropped dead on a sidewalk in Boston. Instead, she is thrust into the midst of an international conspiracy when she discovers that her father was working on a classified project at the time of his death. Now, the FBI, a terrorist and a killer have her in their sights.

Former Navy SEAL turned undercover operative, Chase Romero thinks his boss is overreacting when he orders Chase to small town America to protect Angela. But he changes his mind when her home is burglarized and “accidents” begin to happen. The real question becomes, how can he keep her safe if he keeps tripping over his own heart?

After shooting an intruder, Angela flees the scene, and the FBI issues a warrant for her arrest. On the run for her life and her freedom, she places her trust in Chase. As they travel from New England, to the nation’s capital, to the shores of Lake Michigan, the trail – and their attraction – grow hotter. Together, they team up to prevent a global financial market meltdown and face a killer who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the project Mac protected with his life.

About the Author:
Jacquie Johnson fell in love with books on her mother’s knee. From Dr. Seuss to Carolyn Keene to L.M. Montgomery, she continued her affair until her teenage years when she began reading authors ranging from Tom Clancy to Nora Roberts to Johanna Lindsey. She’s still an avid reader but now carries an e-reader instead of a paperback in her purse. Mysteries and suspense are her favorite genres, but she enjoys romance, historical fiction, and non-fiction as well. She graduated from Harvard and Indiana University School of Law. After ten years practicing labor and employment law, she retired to homeschool her daughters. She lives in Northwest Indiana with her husband, three daughters, and a spoiled cocker spaniel named Princess.

She was his anchor.
He was her home.

Gracie Taylor fell in love with Noah Chase on the first day of kindergarten. Gracie was the girl from the wrong side of town. Noah was the town’s golden boy. Their families had been at loggerheads since the death of Gracie’s mother years ago and as they grew up, they had to risk everything to be together.

But it was worth it, because when they were together, nothing else mattered.

Then, on their wedding day, Gracie discovered a secret that sent her running from Idle Point, leaving Noah with a broken heart to match her own.

Now, eight years later, Gracie returns to Maine for her father’s wedding. When she discovers Noah has come home to Idle Point to save the family business—and that he has a little daughter named Sophie—Gracie also discovers that nothing has changed. Their love for each other is stronger than ever, but the secrets that drove them apart still hold the power to ruin their lives.

Will past mistakes destroy their love or will they finally find happiness together… at last?

Something In Red (Fancytales Regency Romance Series) by Leighann Dobbs

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Once Upon A Time…

On a dark and lonely road, Lady Rhiad of the Ryding Hoode’s met a Wolfe on the way to her grandmother’s house. But little did Rhiad or the Wolfe know that their meeting was a scheme put into motion by her grandmother, for the countess had laid a trap for both lord Wolfe and her grand-daughter, weaving a tale all her own until both the Wolfe and Rhiad were firmly in her clutches at last, helpless to escape.

Rhiad did not remain unscathed as her grandmother’s brilliant plan was her betrothal to said Wolfe, Damien by name. Though she knew her grandmother’s intentions were good, she could not help but feel betrayed. After all, what sort of grandmother offers her own grand-daughter up to be made a meal of by a hungry predator – even if said predator was completely human and fed solely on the virtue of innocents?

Still, Rhiad cannot deny being tempted to bait the delightfully cunning Lord Wolfe. His every move tempts her, every word makes her yearn. Would it truly be so bad to surrender herself, body and soul, to the heat in his gaze, the pleasure of his bite?

Does the tale of Rhiad Hoode and Damien Wolfe end in fiery passion or perhaps there is something else? Maybe something in red?

This is a novelette of 11,000 words – a sweet short story to enjoy during a cozy afternoon.
