Taught aerobic lap-dancing lessons, slept in her fake eyelashes—the whole thing.” Hunter sighed. “But she cheated on me, brought me nothing but endless drama and, well, I’m looking for a real woman.” He studied her, his dark eyes serious. “I think, right now, you’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen in my life.”

“Want to come in for a drink?”

He nodded, and she grabbed him by the hand and pulled him inside her apartment. Then she suddenly remembered that she had no drinks, as she’d finished her last bottle of wine days before and hadn’t been shopping yet.

“Actually, I don’t have anything to drink. Except water.” Would he bolt now, she wondered?

“Well, I’ll be honest with you—I don’t really want a drink.”

Lieutenant Nolan Murphy returns from overseas deployment expecting to find his home and canine companion just as he left them. Instead, an emergency storm evacuation has gotten his dog caught up in the chaos! Tracing the AWOL pup to Idaho, Nolan quickly falls for his new owners, little Harper Jordan…and her stepsister, Abby! Abby and Nolan struggle to come to terms with their “peternity” situation, and with the attraction that sparks between them.

Will the once-lonely soldier find a new home—and his forever family—in Sugar Falls?

His Manhattan Midnight Cinderella

Written by Carol Marinelli

Shop assistant Felicia doesn’t let anyone get too close—her difficult upbringing has made sure of that. The closest she’s ever come to opening her heart was with billionaire Leander Carmichael. But even the rapturous pleasure she found in his arms couldn’t tempt wary Felicia to tell him the truth about her family.

Now, a year later, when Felicia sees Leander again at a glamorous ball, she realizes she’s been lying to herself. She didn’t just open her heart to Leander—she gave it to him. And what’s more, he still has it! As their irresistible chemistry reignites, can Felicia find the courage to tell this brooding billionaire everything…including how much she still loves him?
