It’s Love, Dude by Jenny Schwartz

ILDFrom our favourite short story writer comes a debut full-length novel about sand, sun, small towns, and surfing…

Zane Carlton is a World Champion surfer. Molly Georgiou is a shy, small-town girl. They have nothing in common except an instantaneous attraction and an impossible quest for a rare, endangered Australian marsupial. But Zane is determined to make it work, and invites Molly to take a step into his world. But Molly isn’t ready for the spotlights and attention — she loves her town, its quirks, its characters. Opposites attract, but can two such different people find both a woylie and forever? TEST


Style Me Sexy (novella) by Tara Chevrestt

Javier has long been aware of the timid but kind woman, and vows to take this opportunity to make her see that she’s beautiful on the outside, as well as in. Will he succeed in keeping his own feelings at bay and style her sexy?

Beautiful Illusion by Jacquie Underdown

BIA beautiful, spiritual story about a woman who meets the man of her dreams — and then wakes up…

The last thing Leah thought she’d get out of a shocking car accident was the perfect boyfriend. But there was Brennan in the hospital bed next to hers — equal parts charm, cheek, and chocolate. Their relationship, their love, her life, is almost too good to be true.

Then, to Leah’s horror, she discovers that it is. Her new life with Brennan is only a fabrication of her injured mind — a coma dream that ends when she wakes up.

Struggling with injuries and grieving for a man that never existed, Leah battles to put her life back together. But a series of coincidences hint that for some people, love can transcend all barriers and achieve the impossible.

Starstruck In Seattle by Juliet Madison

SISA sparkling story from the Queen of Ro-magic comedy!

Aspiring actress Anna Hilford might only have a small role in a leading television drama, but she longs to be dreamboat Karl Drake’s leading lady. Sick of being loveless and overlooked, Anna seeks the help of intuitive love coach, Lulu, from to give her the courage and determination to follow her destiny.

But fate has different ideas, Lulu has undisclosed power, and Anna is about to realise that life happens while you’re busy making plans..

Dark Oil by Nora James

When lawyer Lara Beckham is sent to Africa to save her company’s multi-million dollar investment, she’s devastated at leaving her husband behind. But what can she do? She’s needed on the other side of the world, fighting corruption in a country of rolling sand dunes and roaming camels.

On her return, however, it becomes clear that Tim has had plenty of company while she was away. Now, on top of dealing with a complicated legal system, an African coup and a marriage beyond saving, Lara has one more ball to juggle: her effortlessly seductive co-worker, Jack Norton, is joining her on the job…and he oozes trouble.

In Her Dreams (novella) by Katherine Givens

IHDA flirty, fun, mix-and-match romance about two sisters who are betrothed to the wrong men…

Evangeline Vernon is a woman on the verge of spinsterhood — until the prim and proper Duke of Manchester steps in. Her family is pleased with the match, but the duke is not the passionate man Evangeline craves. Her heart belongs to an alluring, golden-haired gentleman, perfect in every way…except one: he doesn’t exist.

Angela Vernon is everything a proper, well-brought-up woman should be. She knows her place and understands society’s expectations — which include not being jealous of her sister and not coveting her sister’s suitor. But how can she bear the heartache of watching the only man she loves marry not only her sister, but a woman who doesn’t see past his exterior to the man he is beneath?

    “Beautiful Illusion” by Jacquie Underdown.
    It must admit that I was about to skip it because the cover didn’t pull me right in as the other’s did, but when I read the description I thought “I really want to read that story”. It sounds perfectly romantic to me, and like a nice break from the usual woman meets the guy of her dreams – even though she literally meets the guy of her dreams…

    You asked: Tell me Which of these books caught your attention and why?

    Quite simple really. I live in Seattle so of course I always like to see if an author does it justice and to see if I recognize some of the places or landmarks used. Looks like a decent story too. Thanks for the opportunity.

  4. Marcy Meyer

    Style Me Sexy caught my eye. First, it’s a great cover! Then, I read the blurb and it sounds like a good story. Something different that I haven’t read before.

  5. Marcy Shuler

    In Her Dreams, Style Me Sexy and Beautiful Illusion caught my attention. And yes, the covers are gorgeous. 🙂

  6. Lori Meehan

    Beautiful Illusions. I’ve not read a book with that type of story line. It sounds good.

  7. Carolyn Valdez

    All of these books look great and sound interesting. It is really hard to pick just one.

  8. Debra A.

    Dark Oil for the story line. For some reason that type of story is hitting my reading zone lately.

  9. Kai W.

    Dark Oil. It is a story that the heroine is trying to save her marriage as well as the world and then temptation comes along.

  10. Claira Pam

    In Her Dreams caught my eye because I am a sucker for regency romance, but I am also intrigued by the premise of Beautiful Illusion!!

  11. Chanpreet

    Let’s see:It’s Love, Dude. Starstruck in Seattle, Dark Oil, and In Her Dreams look like stories I’d fall in love with…

  12. Lisa B.

    Beautiful Illusion caught my attention because the story seems different from anything I’ve read lately.

  13. Michelle Huang

    Beautiful Illusion caught my eye because we all want a perfect someone but in reality, they don’t exist and we must come to either love or accept their flaws.

  14. Autumn Kelley

    Style me Sexy caught my eye because the cover is adorable. Also In Her Dreams caught my eye because the way she is posed intrigues me.
