Sophisticated and secure, Franco shook her very core, and with burning ecstasy threatened the deepest, darkest secret any woman could ever reveal!

Even now the thought of marriage frightened her. Matthew Ward was delighted by his father's engagement but he understood Lainie's feelings. Matt too knew emotional injuries, psychic scars. Unlike Lainie, Matt believed that love could heal, restore, renew. And suddenly it became extremely important for him to prove it-both for Lainie's sake and his own....

Nobody's Baby

Nevada Vagabond "Help Wanted: Willing to travel. Knowledge of music a plus. Good driving record required." The Ad was taylor-made for playboy-Tony Graham, a world traveler who could certainly tell a G-sharp from a G-string and who hadn't scratched a sports car yet.

Bundle of Joy - Rocky Hill Romance Book 2

One big surprise...

Everyone in town knew Caroline and Charlie just weren't meant for each other. Like oil and water or chalk and cheese, the ex-Navy cook and the beautiful shop owner were a bad match, and although the small New Jersey town was filled with inveterate matchmakers, even the most determined of the lot had to admit this was one match that would never happen.

But nobody had figured on Caroline and Charlie getting locked in a storage vault with an automatic timer set for the next morning...and Caroline and Charlie definitely hadn't figured on the little surprise they got a few months later when they discovered there was a baby on the way!

Caroline is sure she can handle everything alone but Charlie has other ideas: a modern marriage of convenience! At first there isn't anything convenient about living with the all-male Charlie Donohue, but before long Caroline's defenses are down and her husband-in-name-only is sharing her bed.

Is there even the slightest chance this marriage of inconvenience could turn into the real thing?

Daddy's Girl


Hunter Phillips never thought he'd fall in love, but when he saw her honey blond hair, sparkling blue eyes and adoring smile, his heart melted. Only problem was, she was eight months old.

The niece he'd inherited certainly changed his life. These days the hip bachelor was strictly a one-woman man. Until he met Jeannie Ross.

She knew babies; babies were her business. And when she helped him clean farina off his shirt and a wet spot from his pants, Hunter knew what he was missing.

And that's when he knew that becoming an instant father didn't mean he was no longer a single man .. . .

Renegade Lover


The Invisible Groom

From Library Journal
When illusionist Chase Quinn brashly challenges the longstanding curse of the Tucker mine and ends up disappearing the very day that Jenna Grey is jilted for the third time, fate takes a hand. In order to pick up the threads of his life, Chase must face the thing that he fears most-marriage-which Jenna no longer thinks highly of, along with men. Things are further complicated by the fact that Chase is invisible! Unfortunately, what begins as a promising situation quickly becomes tedious and irritating, and even Bretton's fast pace and lively style can't quite make this one come together. Bretton has written a number of well-received romances, including Tomorrow and Always, published last year in hardcover by Harlequin and now out in paperback.
