Indulge with these irresistible and heart-warming summer romances by USA Today bestselling author Sarah Morgan! Featuring previously published titles Sleigh Bells in the Snow, Suddenly Last Summer and Maybe This Christmas. Sleigh Bells in the Snow Once upon a time, Christmas was Kayla Green’s favorite time of year. Now all the workaholic wants for Christmas is for it to be over—as fast as possible! So when duty calls her to snowy Vermont to close a deal with a new client, Kayla is grateful for an excuse to avoid the holidays for another year. Jackson O’Neil left a thriving business behind to return home and salvage his family’s resort—it’s in his blood, and he can’t let it fail. Now that he’s got marketing whiz Kayla Green working with him to put Snow Crystal on the map, success is on the horizon. The fact they strike enough sparks off each other to power all the Christmas lights in Vermont is just an added bonus. Kayla might be an expert at her job, but she’s out of her depth with Jackson—he makes her crave the happy-ever-after she once dreamed of, and it’s terrifying. As the snowflakes continue to swirl, will the woman who doesn’t believe in the magic of Christmas finally fall under its spell? Suddenly Last Summer Fiery French chef ƒlise Philippe is having a seriously bad day. Not only have the grand opening plans for her beloved café fallen apart, but Sean O’Neil is back in town and looking more delectable than ever. Memories of the electrifying night they shared last summer leave ƒlise very tempted, but she knows all too well that eventually Sean will be leaving…again. Being back in Vermont—even temporarily—is surgeon Sean O’Neil’s worst nightmare. Returning home to the Snow Crystal Resort means confronting the guilt he feels about rejecting his family’s lifestyle years ago. But discovering that ƒlise is still in Vermont and still sets his blood racing is a very welcome distraction! Remembering last summer and how good they were together is going to make walking away more difficult than he could imagine…. Maybe This Christmas This winter, ex-skiing champion, reformed heartbreaker and single dad Tyler O’Neil has only one mission—making sure his daughter, Jess, has the best Christmas ever. The fact that his best friend, Brenna, is also temporarily moving into his chalet at the overbooked Snow Crystal resort is a delicious distraction he’s simply going to have to ignore. Theirs is the one relationship he’s never ruined, and he’s not about to start now. Ski pro Brenna Daniels knows all about the perils of unrequited love—she’s been in love with Tyler for years. But living with him is absolute torture… How can she concentrate on being his friend when he’s sleeping in the room next door? Then when Tyler kisses Brenna, suddenly the relationship she’s always dreamed of feels so close she could almost touch it. Could this be the Christmas her dreams of a happy-ever-after finally come true? Originally published in 2013 and 2014.

Join six authors as they take you through a journey of mystery, passion, and danger to uncover a cult and catch a killer loose in Wyoming! Special Agent’s Perfect Cover by Marie Ferrarella Cold Plains, Wyoming, should be a ghost town. Then why are its once-decaying streets gleaming? And why are there only beautiful, smiling Stepford-like wives in those streets? Hawk Bledsoe wants to know…because the woman who broke his heart seems to be one of them. Now the two must risk their lives to expose the town’s monstrous secret. And danger only revives the desire both try their hardest to resist…. Rancher’s Perfect Baby Rescue by Linda Conrad Nathan Pierce has plenty of reasons to distrust the Devotees—and Susannah Paul. But as the delicate beauty insinuates herself into his life and his heart, Nathan realizes she’s different. And very much in danger. Soon nothing matters more than protecting Susannah and her child from the evil closing in around them. A Daughter’s Perfect Secret by Kimberley Van Meter Darcy Craven is still reeling from the fact that she isn’t who she thought she was, and she’s not leaving until she uncovers the truth. She knows she shouldn’t trust Cold Plains’s new doctor, Rafe Black. But every step brings Rafe and Darcy closer to each other—and to a truth that could cost them their lives. Lawman’s Perfect Surrender by Jennifer Morey The heat between them is instantaneous. But police deputy Ford McCall has a job to do. He knows that evil has come to rural Cold Plains. And if he doesn’t want the irresistible newcomer involved, he can’t take the risk. Gemma Johnson already fled from an abusive marriage.

The Perfect Outsider by Loreth Anne White June Farrow works for Cold Plains Search and Rescue as cover for her real mission—helping Devotees escape from Samuel Grayson’s evil cult. The rugged man she finds in the woods has no memory, and June’s only option is to take him to the safe house. “Jesse” is the name on his belt buckle—that’s the only thing he knows. The attraction between them threatens to awaken his past. But how can he trust himself not to destroy those he’s trying to protect? Mercenary’s Perfect Mission by Carla Cassidy Fleeing Samuel Grayson’s cult was a risky move for Olivia Conner. So risky that the single mom left one of her children behind. Olivia’s only option is a safe house she found with the help of ruggedly sexy mercenary Micah Grayson. But once she learns he is Samuel’s twin, she dares not trust him…or the way her body reacts to his. Now the two—who’ve both sworn off relationships—must embark on a deadly mission: rescue Olivia’s son, take down Samuel and safeguard their hearts against love!

New York Times bestselling author Lauren Dane brings you the Chase Brothers: ridiculously hot, notoriously single. Read all four classic Chase Brothers novels in this collection! Giving Chase When landscaper Kyle Chase takes notice of Maggie Wright, all of Petal, Georgia, wonders what the quiet schoolteacher is hiding underneath her tight bun and boring blouses. Even Maggie doesn’t quite get it: she’s no match against the famous Chase charm, and Kyle has it in spades. Kyle wants Maggie in his life—and in his bed—and he doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to prove it. For years he’s avoided the kind of trouble that comes with “good girls” like her, but Maggie’s the best trouble he’s ever been in. He craves more of it. More of her. But even as their love grows into thoughts of forever, a hidden danger from Maggie’s past threatens to tear them apart… Taking Chase Sheriff Shane Chase is drawn to the new girl in town from the moment he lays eyes on her. Not only is she gorgeous, but years on the job have taught him to know when someone is hiding something. And Cassie Gambol is hiding something big. He’s willing to take it slow to find out her secrets, no matter how much he burns to make her his. Cassie Gambol needs a fresh start, and she gets it by reinventing herself in the small town of Petal, Georgia. A new romance is the last thing on Cassie’s mind, but the impossibly hot town sheriff has her reconsidering her priorities. But when Cassie and Shane come face-to-face with the reason Cassie’s on the run, only her determination and his instincts can keep her safe from the past—and keep their future from ending before it can even begin. Chased Marc Chase is known in the small town of Petal, Georgia, for being the youngest—and some would say wildest—Chase brother. But when longtime family friend Liv Davis signs up for some personal training sessions, Marc realizes the only woman he wants has been right in front of him all along. Mayor’s assistant Liv has been hurt too many times to let a Chase brother into her life—or into her bed. She’s ready for something more. Something she doesn’t think the six-years-younger Marc is ready to give. Knowing he’ll need more than pretty words to break through Liv’s wall of heartbreak, Marc takes the gamble of his life to prove his love: two days away, full of hot sex and bared souls. But will this bet be enough to win her heart forever? Making Chase All of Petal, Georgia, is waiting for the last Chase brother to fall. At least, that’s how it feels to firefighter Matt Chase, who’s getting a little anxious himself. His brothers have all found love—why hasn’t he? But fate, in the form of a curvaceous hairdresser, is about to change that. Salon owner Tate Murphy has come a long way from her trailer-park roots. Even though she’s put the past behind her, she knows someone like Matt Chase is way out of her league. But that doesn’t stop her from getting a good eyeful every chance she gets. When a car accident throws them together, Tate gets more than an eyeful—she gets the whole package. Not that she’s complaining. But when small-town bias and her own insecurities get in the way of their relationship, Matt will have to prove he doesn’t care where she came from…only where she goes.

ALL FIVE BOOKS IN THE COMMORANCY SERIES AVAILABLE AS A COMPLETE COLLECTION (Over 360,000 Words!) Orientation: Nobody noticed as it swept around the globe - until billions began to die. Then it got a name: The Lethargy. Everyone just gave up, all interest in life relentlessly gnawed away. Marcus was different - he became something else: Awoken. A man able to bend reality to his will and peel back the layers of the complex world he found himself alone in. His only true desire was to help safeguard mankind's future, so The Commorancy was constructed - a fabled safe haven for those lucky enough to get an invitation after passing his strict and convoluted entry requirements. But there are those out to ensure humanity is wiped from the planet entirely, led by a tattooed red man that will stop at nothing. Three hundred years living a life that was never meant to be means that Marcus' grip on reality is becoming severely warped. When fifteen year old Letje finally gets her invitation she finds herself completely out of her depth. Haughty goats, an almost mythical man obsessed with changing his clothes at every available opportunity, and doors that go whoosh don't help her situation as the very future of mankind hangs in the balance. Contamination: The Contamination begins as Varik, along with his tattooed acolytes, threaten not only the fabled Commorancy but the very future of humanity. Marcus, centuries old and getting more eccentric by the day, tries to fight a descent into madness while ensuring he protects the guests he had to so rudely disturb from the sanctuary of their Rooms. Letje, the youngest of the guests, finds herself overwhelmed as she tries to Awaken amid the bizarre behavior of Marcus and the breathtaking architecture of The Commorancy - the last bastion of hope for the few people that actually care if the human race survives or perishes. Evacuation: Marcus leads the group away from The Commorancy but his state of mind is fraying at an alarming rate. Attacks from Varik's church and encounters with the the dregs of humanity threaten their progress, but help from those thought lost forever might improve their chance of survival. Letje learns more about love, loss, and what she is capable of than she had ever thought possible. Resurrection - The Rise of Letje: Letje takes control of The Commorancy and immediately realizes she is out of her depth. Luckily she has help, albeit of the rather odd, and somewhat unexpected kind. Years pass, but as she finally begins to learn the secrets of her new home everything begins to unravel. Timelines become twisted, life loses its focus, and dreams of butterflies threaten to overcome reality. There is something else -- a man, hiding in the shadows, playing with lives that are more precious with each passing year. Bird perches on Letje's ruined shoulder, steel-hard talons digging deeply into the scar tissue, once more amused by the games of man. His family grows. One will Awaken. Desolation: Letje leaves The Commorancy behind, tasked with dealing with a man that threatens everything Marcus worked so hard to accomplish. Things don't go according to plan and soon Letje and her companions find themselves caught in a dream-life just like the rest of the dwindling population. It's a fight for survival, not only for personal sanity and freedom, but for the very future of humanity. Son of Bird watches from above, amused by the games of man; just like his father.
