TRUE LOVE by Jude Deveraux

Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming nineteenth-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman’s relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix—fresh from a romantic breakup—but for reasons of her own Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend’s storybook wedding.

But unseen forces move behind the scenes, creaking Kingsley House’s ancient floorboards. It seems that Adelaide Kingsley had a rather specific task for Alix: to solve the strange disappearance of one of the Kingsley women, Valentina, more than two hundred years ago. If that wasn’t troubling enough, Alix must deal with the arrogant (and extremely good-looking) architect Jared Montgomery, who is living in the property’s guesthouse.

Unbeknown to Alix, Jared has been charged with looking after her while she lives on the island—an easy task for him, considering the undeniable chemistry between the two. But Jared harbors secrets of his own, which, if revealed, may drive a wedge between the pair.

With a glorious Nantucket wedding on the horizon, sparks fly, and the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves—some of them literally. Finding their lives inextricably entwined with the turbulent fortunes of their ancestors, Alix and Jared discover that only by righting the wrongs of the past can they hope to be together.

When Aleksandr finds Charisma under attack, he rescues and cares for her, and hope stirs once more in his heart...and in the world. But in the secret recesses of his soul, he knows the truth. A woman so exceptional could never love a beast...could she?

MOUNTAIN DAWN by Maureen Child

“Many an honest heart beats under a ragged coat.” – Irish proverb

Though Bridget Dugan may be as poor as an Irish church mouse, she’s always been honest. . . until a chance to save her dying mother forces her to break the law. Desperate and on the run, Bridget boards a riverboat heading into Montana Territory, where her soft heart is moved by a young girl with sadness-shadowed eyes – and the girl’s handsome and protective father.

Determined to heal his daughter’s wounded soul, Jacob Fallon has accepted a job as Marshal in the mining town of Treasure Gap in order to give her a new life. He’s thrilled to see the little girl smile for the first time since her mother’s death, until he realizes the reason for her smile – a fiery redhead with sparkling eyes and a sassy tongue. Bridget makes him yearn for things he doesn’t deserve, things like long, slow, passionate kisses.

When Jacob hires Bridget to care for his daughter, his reluctance to fall for her fades under the warmth of her laughter. Joy turns their house into a home, and love transforms them into a family. But how will the lawman react when he realizes that the woman who brings such happiness to him and his daughter is a fugitive? And that she’s been lying to him since the moment they met?
