New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery returns to Blackberry Island with the poignant tale of two sisters on the verge of claiming their dreams.

Small-town nurse Nina Wentworth has made a career out of being a caretaker. More “Mom” than their mother ever was, she sacrificed medical school – and her first love – so her sister could break free. Which is why she isn’t exactly thrilled to see Averil back on Blackberry Island, especially when Nina’s life has suddenly become…complicated.

Nina unexpectedly finds herself juggling two men—her high school sweetheart and a younger, maverick pilot who also wants to claim her heart. But as fun as all this romance is, Nina has real life to deal with. Averil doesn’t seem to want the great guy she’s married to or be making headway writing her first book, their mom is living life just as recklessly as she always has, and Nina’s starting to realize that the control she once had is slipping out of her fingers. Her hopes of getting off the island seem to be stretching further away…until her mother makes a discovery that could change everything forever.

But before Nina and Averil can reach for the stars, they have to decide what they want. Will Averil stay? Will Nina leave? And what about the men who claim to love them? Does love heal or will finding their happy ending mean giving up all they've ever wanted?

Samantha Edwards knew what she wanted, and it wasn’t love. She’d already made a mess out of her life once. She wasn’t about to jeopardize the best job she’d ever had by breaking the cardinal rule of business—falling for the boss. And yet, Jack needed her. And she needed him…because if he could put the company back together, perhaps he could heal her, too.

Scarred since childhood, he avoids emotional entanglement by moving from place to place to heal children who need his skillful touch. Can his growing feelings for Montana lead him to find a home in Fool’s Gold, or will he walk away, taking her broken heart with him?

The Marcelli Bride

It takes one strong-hearted woman to make a rebel say “I do,” and for handsome, headstrong former Navy SEAL Joe Marcelli, that woman may just be the commander in chief’s daughter! After a terrifying kidnapping attempt, Darcy Jensen has been placed in hiding at the Marcelli Winery, the family business that Joe defiantly rejected to carve his own path. Now working undercover, Joe begrudgingly does his duty “babysitting” the first daughter. But getting closer to this fearful, fiery beauty soon proves to be the greatest pleasure he’s ever known. Can Joe protect Darcy from danger, when he’s falling dangerously in love?

The Marcelli Princess

Mia Marcelli awakens to find a man in her bed—and nearly faints: four years ago, while working undercover, Diego, the love of her life and father of her unborn child, perished before her eyes. Now he’s come to the Marcelli vineyard where Mia is raising an adorable son and offers a stunning confession: he was never Diego, but Rafael, Prince of Calandria, and Mia’s wary disbelief fades as their passion reignites. She doesn’t know that he intends to give their boy a regal upbringing in Calandria—even if he must seduce Mia into marriage. But as he falls for this luscious beauty, the prince must choose between his royal duties—and the call of his heart.

Haley Foster had lived her entire life in a box. Guided by her preacher father and the residents of her tiny hometown as to what to do, what to wear and even who to marry, she'd lost herself along the way. But no more. Now she was going to live on her own terms and do all the things good preachers' daughters didn't do. Starting with Kevin Harmon.

The injured U.S. Marshal needed a ride from Kansas to his home in Texas. Haley had a car. She figured she owed him a favor. And he knew a lot more about being bad than she did. A few days, just the two of them, in her tiny convertible and intimate hotel rooms…It would be fun, it would be passionate, it would be an experience.

At least, that was her plan. He just didn't know it yet.

Welcome to Fool’s Gold, California, a charming community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. There’s lots to do and plenty of people to meet, especially women. Because there’s just one tiny problem in Fool’s Gold: the men don’t seem to stick around. Maybe it’s the lure of big-city life, or maybe it’s plain old bad luck, but regardless of the reason, the problem has to be fixed, fast. And Charity Jones may be just the city planner to do it.

Charity’s nomadic childhood has left her itching to settle down, and she immediately falls in love with all the storybook town has to offer — everything, that is, except its sexiest and most famous resident, former world-class cyclist Josh Golden. With her long list of romantic disasters, she’s not about to take a chance on another bad boy, even if everyone else thinks he’s perfect just the way he is. But maybe that’s just what he needs — someone who knows the value of his flaws. Someone who knows that he’s just chasing perfect.

Sometimes the greatest risks bring the greatest rewards…

Izzy has always been the fearless Titan sister.  But when an oil rig blows up, leaving her barely able to see, her sisters find themselves as concerned by her emotional withdrawal as by the possibility that the explosion was no accident.  Are the mind games their long-lost brother Garth has been playing turning physical?  Or is someone else out to get them?

When her sisters enroll her in a survivor training camp, Izzy is not happy.  Though Nick, her instructor, is determined that she won’t be left in the dark.  In more ways than one.  But if he tells her the terrible truth behind why he’s helping her, he’ll probably never see her again.  Unless they’re both willing to take the biggest risk of all.

Lexi Titan can just see the headlines.  All of Titanville, Texas, will be buzzing, and wondering why.  Not that she has any other choice.  Faced with exactly thirty days to come up with two million dollars in cold, hard cash, she is out of options.  Marry Cruz Rodrigues or lose everything—the day spa she built herself, her tyrant of a father’s respect.  And the long-standing competition with her sisters for the family business.

The proposal is cold and hard.  Cruz has money, success, smoldering good looks—everything but the blue blood needed to become a true member of Texas society.  If Lexi agrees to be his fiancée for six months, lending him her famous father’s last name and his snobbish connections, he’ll hand her a check on the spot.  And in six months they’ll go their separate ways.

But neither one is prepared for their long-ago shared passion to throw a wrench into what would seem to be the perfect deal…

Even Texas isn’t big enough for this family.

“Responsibility” should be Nicole Keyes’s middle name.  After all, not many people would sacrifice their lives to run the family bakery and raise a younger sibling.  But with Nicole’s twin sister now blissfully married and her younger sis turning out more femme fatale than girl next door, superreliable Nicole is getting sick of putting everyone else’s needs first!

Enter Hawk.  The deliciously sexy former NFL player offers Nicole a taste of the freedom she craves.  Hawk may know the way, blindfolded, to her sweet spot, but Nicole’s not about to let him get close enough to break her heart.  Of course, she might not have a choice in the matter if Hawk’s past keeps getting in the way of their present…

SWEET TALK
Book 1 in the Bakery Sisters series from HQN
July 2008

Is there anything sweeter than a first love?

Don’t ask Claire Keyes.  The twenty-eight-year old piano prodigy has never had a regular boyfriend, much less a real romance.  Her music career has left little room for friends or family — which is just part of the reason she’s estranged from her two sisters.

But now Nicole is sick, and Jesse is AWOL.  Despite the fact that Claire can’t boil water, she’s determined to play caretaker.  Connecting with her sisters tops her to-do list….along with falling in love, or at least in lust, for the first time.

Ambitious?  Maybe.  But a girl’s gotta dream.  And ruggedly sexy Wyatt is a dream come true.  Although he keeps telling himself that he and Claire come from entirely different worlds, he lights up hotter than a bakery oven whenever Claire is near.  If this keeps up, she just might sweet-talk him into her bed….and her life.

Menu

Appetizer
Cal Buchanan needs a top-flight chef to take over his failing Seattle restaurant, The Waterfront. He can afford to hire the best in town--the only problem is that the best happens to be his ex-wife, Penny Jackson.

Entree
Penny really needs this opportunity, but she doesn't need the distraction of working with her ex. She's sworn off romance--she's even having a baby on her own. But before she knows it, the heat is on...and the attraction between her and Cal moves from a low simmer to a full boil!

Dessert
The rest should be easy as pie, but a secret from Dessert Cal's past could spoil everything. Maybe it's true that too many cooks spoil the broth--or maybe two is enough to make it irresistible.
