Perfect Timing by Jane O’Reilly

FTThe journey from friends to lovers starts with a very brave first step. Or a catalytic event. Sometimes both.

After years of putting her life on hold, musician Ruby Thorpe is finally ready to leave the small English town she grew up in. She’s got it all planned — a job with the New York Philharmonic orchestra will fulfil her musical ambitions, and a few dates with a cute American guy should sort out her virginity, which has definitely outstayed its welcome. And she’s going to stop waiting for her best friend Jason to notice that she’s a girl.

But Jason has a few surprises in store for Ruby, and she soon finds herself caught in a dilemma: can the right man turn up at the wrong time?

After a failed marriage and years of self-doubt, she needs her business proposal to succeed — but there’s one hurdle left: presenting to the Board of Directors and charismatic CEO, Keith Donnelli. So then it can only be the stress and extreme tension that leads her to jump the hot stranger in the elevator…

But the unexpectedly explosive encounter puts all her plans in jeopardy, when the stranger isn’t a stranger at all.

Four-Leaf Clover by Charmaine Ross

FLCA sexy, sugar-laden David vs Goliath story about a local bakery, a national chain, and what really matters.

Clover Loveday has worked hard to get her café Four-Leaf Clover up and running — her ticket out of an increasingly alarming financial situation and her dream come true. When she literally falls off her ladder into the arms of sexy-as-sin Liam Sinclair. The same Liam Sinclair who owns the new bakery being built just across the road…the new store by bakery chain Upper Crust owner! Clover decides then that no matter how nauseated she is about the idea, it is best keep your enemies close, rather than leave things to fate.

Liam has never put too much thought into the competition when he opens a new outlet, other than taking their customers and strengthening the Upper Crust brand. But here in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, Clover Loveday’s cafe is a little too close for comfort, and Clover herself a little too good-looking. So Liam asks his PA to put together a ’fact sheet’ about his new competition. He has a business to run, a father to please, and hundreds of people to keep in jobs. Surely information can keep an unwanted strong sexual pull at bay…

A sweet, caffeinated, satisfying story about unexpected temptations, forgiveness, and putting love before money.

Evidence Of Love by Elisabeth Rose

EOLShe survived years as a gangland wife, sacrificing everything to the family. But now they’re threatening the one thing that she will never, ever give up — her child.

When Maja’s abusive gang boss husband Tony is murdered, she takes the opportunity to flee, change her name, and leave her criminal family and her past behind. As Lara Moore, she and her toddler son Petey live quietly in suburban Sydney. Then, one act of kindness threatens to reveal her secrets and unravel the threads of her new life. But Detective Nick is dedicated and determined, the antithesis of everything she was brought up to believe about the police. Slowly, Maja finds herself drawn out of her shell and into his protective embrace.

Investigating Detective Nick Lawson doesn’t know what it is about the prickly, reclusive young mother that attracts and intrigues him, but as the facts about her crime-steeped family emerge, Nick doubts whether his career would survive this relationship, even if she were interested.

Then, to Lara’s horror, her past meets her present, and thoughts of love and a future are lost as the fight for her child begins.

Above And Beyond by Wendy L Curtis

AABIn the sticky, steamy jungles of Papua New Guinea, they fight for the lives of the world’s most vulnerable people. They didn’t expect to have to fight for their own.

All investigative journalist Roxy Williams wanted was a hot one-night stand: quick, dirty, and completely one-off. A business transaction to ease stress, loosen tension, and allow her to get right back to her job — exposing the heart-breaking realities of people smuggling. So when all hell breaks loose in a small village on Papua New Guinea, the last person Roxy expects to see is her one-night-stand and male escort, Rob, with a boat, a beach, and an escape plan!

Rob is supposed to be long-gone from this assignment, but after their one night together, he can’t seem to let Roxy go. Using all his resources, Rob risks his job to keep track of her — and when a huge storm threatens, he goes after the sexy journalist. Now they’re together, in danger, and fighting for their lives. People smuggling is a big money industry, and the smugglers are playing for keeps.

Lord Somerton’s Heir by Alison Stuart

LSHCan the love of an honourable man save her from the memory of a desolate marriage?

From the battlefield of Waterloo to the drawing rooms of Brantstone Hall, Sebastian Alder’s elevation from penniless army captain to Viscount Somerton is the stuff of dreams. But the cold reality of an inherited estate in wretched condition, and the suspicious circumstances surrounding his cousin’s death, provide Sebastian with no time for dreams — only a mystery to solve and a murderer to bring to justice.

Isabel, widow of the late Lord Somerton, is desperate to bury the memory of her unhappy marriage by founding the charity school she has always dreamed of. Except, her dreams are soon shattered from beyond the grave when she is not only left penniless, but once more bound to the whims of a Somerton.

But this Somerton is unlike any man she has met. Can the love of an honourable man heal her broken heart or will suspicion tear them apart?

    Four-Leaf Clover by Charmaine Ross

    FLCA sexy, sugar-laden David vs Goliath story about a local bakery, a national chain, and what really matters.

  5. belindaegreen

    I loved In Bed with the Boss and Four-Leaf Clover! I like the fact that In Bed, the career vs. love. For a women trying to make it in the corporate world it’s such a tension filled journey. Four -Leaf is one of my fav storylines. Small storefront café vs. the major big bakery across the street. Throw love into the mix and things get kinda crazy!

    All the May release from Escape are just that, an escape. Thanks for the opportunity.

    It’s Four Leaf Clover. I just love the title and perhaps there is a bit of luck to find love between the characters.

  9. Brooke

    Four Leaf Clover and Lord Somerton’s Heir both caught my eye. The stories sound so good!

  10. Cathy P

    I liked 3 of the books: Perfect Timing because it’s a friends to lovers book; In Bed With the Boss because I like employee/boss romances; and last but not least Lord Somerton’s Heir because I love historical romances.

  11. Michelle Huang

    Evidence of Love because we can’t always escape our past until we face them; In Bed With The Boss because relationships within our workplace can be very tempting at times and must resist the attraction.

  12. Natalija

    Bundle 1 looks like my kind of read. I love the friends-to-lovers trope in “Perfect Timing”, and “Evidence of Love” sounds like a great suspenseful read. Pls count me in!

  13. Vanessa

    They all sound great. I think Evidence Of Love by Elisabeth Rose would be my first choice. With Lord Somerton’s Heir by Alison Stuart as my 2nd. All the bundles sound terrific!

  14. Winnie Lim

    I like the sound of all of them but I liked Four Leave Clover best. Firstly because I love it when a book has to do with food. Secondly I like reading about the sparks between competitors.

  15. Amanda Vinson

    These books are, as they say, “right up my alley”!! The covers are amazing and the storylines really drew me in!! Can’t wait to read them!!

  16. Jane Cavanaugh

    In Bed With the Boss and also Four-Leaf Clover both caught my eye. Hope I get lucky!

  17. ndluebke

    While they all look good, the first bundle has a friends to lovers which grabbed me right away. Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. Taswmom

    Bundle #3, because I love clover, especially 4 leafed clovers, and I was drawn to the dress on Lord Sommerton’s Heir. Then when I read the blurbs, I still liked those 2 best.

  19. Jennifer Zorko

    The books that caught my eye by cover alone are:

    Perfect Timing
    In Bed with the Boss
    Four Leaf Clover
    Evedince of Love
    Lord Somerton’s Heir

    After reading the blurb, I added them to my TBR list. Thanks for the chance.

  20. Justine

    Perfect Timing is automatically on my list because friends-to-lovers is my favorite trope. Four-Leaf Clover reminds me of You’ve Got Mail. Evidence of Love and Above and Beyond sound like interesting romantic suspense.

  21. florryalyna

    It’s hard to choose. Would love to read them all.
    Evidence Of Love by Elisabeth Rose intrigues me more, because of the story’s mystery side.

  22. Kate I.

    I dig romantic suspense, and EVIDENCE OF LOVE sounds like a harrowing read! And I like the friends-to-lovers angle of PERFECT TIMING.
