Ride into the sunset of a happily ever after with this trio of new romances, featuring couples who've fought hard for their futures.
★ A Cowboy to Remember
NYC glamour meets Southern California dude ranch in Rebekah Weatherspoon’s A Cowboy to Remember. Suffering from amnesia after an accident, chef Evie Buchanan flies west to recover with the dazzling, successful Pleasant family, with whom she lived as a child. The three handsome brothers are eager for her to recover, and she has eyes for one, Zach, in particular. She suspects that she and Zach could’ve had something before she left for culinary school, but Zach is slow to own up to their past—or his mistakes. Readers will root for Evie to reclaim her life, but it feels wrong to leave behind a blossoming romance. However, Evie has fought hard for her achievements, and walking away from them isn’t a win either. This is a pleasurable ride to happily ever after.
Engaged to the Earl
Lisa Berne offers a charming Regency romp with Engaged to the Earl. Beautiful and determined Gwendolyn Penhallow believes she’s the luckiest girl in the world when she finds herself engaged to the Earl of Westenbury, the most handsome man she’s ever laid eyes on. She is even more delighted when an old friend and former neighbor, Christopher Beck, arrives in London. He’s soon brought into their social circle, and she finds herself as drawn to him as she was in her childhood. Since she’s promised to another, she can be content with a platonic closeness with Christopher—or can she? Humor abounds in Berne’s witty, tongue-in-cheek romance. And her choice to tell the story through multiple viewpoints puts the reader in the center of the action, adding to the fast-paced fun.
Synithia Williams’ Forbidden Promises lives up to its title. India Robidoux’s visit to her family home was supposed to be a temporary stop in her career as a touring violinist. But her brother is in the middle of a political campaign, and soon she’s sucked into the family drama. That means facing her sister’s ex, Travis Strickland, an attorney from a humble part of town who is working on the campaign. Emotions, relationships and business are tangled in this soap opera-esque tale, and readers will find themselves unable to look away from Williams’ well-drawn and larger-than-life characters. It’s impossible not to enjoy this entertaining glimpse into a world of wealth, political ambition and familial loyalties.
