Brea Nelson is used to her family’s prickly attitude, but she’s determined to spend the holidays with them. Unfortunately, a major storm and serious car trouble complicate her plans.

But he can’t deny there’s something special about this plucky woman… Something that cuts through his arrogant exterior, and warms his cold heart.

One night may be all it takes to ignite a spark between these two strangers. But will a Christmas miracle be enough to keep them from going their separate ways?

She’s interested in dating someone else, but she promptly puts that plan on hold to come to the rescue of her best friend. She loves his company and they know each other inside and out. While a marriage of convenience isn’t what she really sees for herself, she’s more than willing to make this plan work for the guy who’s always been there for her.

Maverick Tucker is in a bit of a pickle. He’s ready for the promotion he’s worked so hard for at Bolton Farms but his father thinks he needs a wife before that promotion becomes a reality.

When Britta agrees to marry him and promises that their marriage will be permanent, he’s reluctant for only a moment. He’s actually relieved that his problem is solved. And marrying his best friend doesn’t sound half bad.

As they go through the motions of being engaged and making it seem real, things start to change. Mav sees that Britta may make more of a sacrifice than he can ask of her. She’s still all in for their plan, but he knows he should put a stop to it.

When he thinks of breaking their engagement off, his heart is wounded. He’s shocked at his feelings. Now he doesn’t know if he should let her go or fight for her.

Was their friendship always destined to become a true-to-life love story?

Sam Duncan expects to win the ranch challenge that would put a cool fifty grand in his pocket.

Not lacking confidence, Sam works his parcel of land in the competition and is certain his win will be a slam dunk. What he doesn’t expect is that Whitney—the only woman ranch hand at Duncan Ranch—will give him a run for his money. He’s not happy about it and his disdain for her overflows.

Every time he turns around, she’s there. Doing her part and taking the competition seriously.

Whitney Wright works harder than any of the men ranch hands to secure her own future and she’s going to give everything she has to win the ranch challenge.

The chance for her to build up more of a nest egg for her future is a burning need for Whitney. She only has herself to depend on and she simply can’t let herself down. These opportunities come around only once in a lifetime for ugly duckling girls like her.

When she overhears a rude comment Sam makes, she’s hurt. She knows he doesn’t like her but to hear him say such mean things is more than she can bear.

Danger and desire go hand in hand…

When her little sister Robyn is kidnapped, Rhianne Carlson promises herself she’ll do anything to bring her home safely. Even if it means reluctantly teaming up with private security agent and former Navy SEAL Eric Cruz.

Despite his smoldering good looks and undeniable talents, Rhianne has never trusted this sinfully sexy agent. And she definitely doesn’t like his plan to pretend to be a decadent couple, in order to lure out the organized crime syndicate who’s taken Robyn. Eric’s taking his role way too seriously. All that touching and kissing. It’s enough to drive a girl mad…with lust.

Eric has always admired Rhianne. And now that they’re working together, he finds his admiration turning into something more. They’re getting way too good at pretending to be a couple. Their kisses seem all too real. But the danger they’re in is real too. And even though he knows Rhianne can handle herself, he can’t help feeling protective of her.

Can they fight for their lives, while also fighting off their mutual attraction? And if they manage to survive, does their growing love have a chance?

A one-night stand leaves this Navy SEAL with a surprise…

It was just supposed to be one night of no-strings-attached fun, but now Sofia Popov has become the center of former Navy SEAL Ian Campbell’s life. Sofia turns out to be the teacher of Ian’s teen son, Gavin—the same teacher who meets him in the hospital when Gavin suffers a seizure at school.

And he’s not the only teen who’s landed in the hospital. Ian is already formulating a plan to make those responsible pay when Sofia drops a bombshell: she’s pregnant.

Sofia’s in way over her head—not only with Ian but also with a dangerous cartel that wants her silenced. While the police don’t take her concerns seriously, Ian’s private investigation firm does. And that’s a good thing because this cartel wants to shut her up. Permanently.

She doesn’t think twice when Ian offers her a safe place to stay. Now it’s up to Ian’s private investigation firm to get to the bottom of things to protect the teens of San Diego—and the woman who’s winning Ian’s heart.

Luck be a Lady Tonight by Merry Farmer

Posted June 30, 2022 by Marsha in Booksprout ARC, Historical Romance, Regency Romance, Series, Sexual Content / 0 Comments

The Marquess of Vegas made a deal with the devil, and now his sons must pay the price.

In order to restore the family fortune he lost, Lord Vegas has ordered his sons to marry money and to marry it fast. But the four of them are determined to strike back at their father by marrying the most unsuitable brides they can find….

Joseph Rathborne-Paxton has always lived in his older brothers’ shadows, and he’s just about had it. More than any of the others, he took his father’s moralizing and piety seriously (and was most disappointed when it turned out to be a lie) and did everything he could to be the dutiful son. Now, everyone seems determined to treat him as a child, which he is most certainly not. Joseph is not amused, and he will do whatever he can to prove he is a man to be respected. Like defeating the villainous Montrose single-handedly.

American heiress Ellen Garrett has come to London, intent on taking the place by storm. Ellen is loud, brash, provincial, and ready for anything. Except, as she quickly learns, London society wants nothing to do with a free spirit like her. She is determined to make herself into the perfect English rose, though…but it is a plan she needs Joseph’s help for.

As it turns out, lively Ellen is just what Joseph needs to bring him out of his shell, and Joseph is just what Ellen needs to become a lady. More than that, Ellen just might be what the entire Rathborne-Paxton family needs to right the wrongs Lord Vegas committed and to bring Melrose to justice once and for all. Because every family of the British peerage needs a card sharp, right?

It’s a case of grumpy meets sunshine and opposites attract with a healthy dose of mad-capped mischief, a day at the races, a shopping excursion gone wrong, a villain getting his just deserts in the most thrilling way possible, and two people falling in love whether they want to or not.
