“I'm walking away from that dream.” “We can't guarantee your life if you keep playing.” At twenty-three, an undiagnosed heart condition sends pro hockey player Cameron Riley back to his hometown newly single and looking for work. Cam can't hide his past – especially when his heart racing is a big risk, and boy, does his new boss's nephew make his heart race. Noah's exactly the kind of guy Cam needs after his hellish ex. “I want to do something new.” Art curator Noah Clark is glad his beekeeping uncle hired this hunk. Cameron is a sweet, smart bad boy. Noah works hard, like organizing a hockey-themed art exhibition, and he wants to let himself love hard. Noah's busy life would be perfect with Cameron, but what's his new lover hiding? “Tell me why you've been watching me.” Pitting Cam's budding relationship with sweet Noah against millions of bucks, Cam is offered a lot of money to abandon his new priorities: life, love, and family. The game of their lives is on the line. And after all's said and done, is it too late for Noah to forgive Cam for his partial truths? Buzz is a steamy, stand-alone gay romance novel with a HEA ending and no cliffhanger.

My First – Jason & Katie Jason Sloan is known as Harper’s Crossing’s resident Romeo. With his easygoing charm, whiskey-colored brown eyes, and sinfully sexy half smile, women seem to fall all over themselves when he’s around. Well...most women. Katie Lawson’s the one woman who isn't putty in his hands, and she's the only one he’s ever wanted in his arms. Katie Lawson left Harper's Crossing ten years ago, immediately after her high school boyfriend Nick's funeral. She left behind all memories of Nick, and she left behind her life-long best friend, Jason Sloan. Now she's on the fast track to junior partner at one of San Francisco's top law firms. Her life is all about maintaining order and sticking to the rules. Rule #1 is keeping herself too busy to think about all that she ran away from. But that rule is about to be broken. It's time to face the truth-that maybe she didn't lose her first love the summer after high school. Maybe her first love has been waiting for her all this time, at home in Harper's Crossing. My Last – Riley & Chelle He was the bad boy... After twelve years in the Marines Special Forces Riley Sloan is more than ready to start his new civilian life. No one to answer to. No one depending on him. No more dangerous rescues...he thought. After receiving a distress call he is sent to check on the one girl that's completely off limits and the only girl who ever made him question his loyalty. His best friend's little sister. She is the last girl he should want...but the only one he does. She was the good girl... Rachelle Thomas is honest, kind and always sees the best in people. So she is completely blindsided when her fiancé dumps her for his pregnant 18 year old secretary. Confused and heartbroken she heads out of town to regroup. When her friends and family get worried they send out a search party of one. Riley Sloan. Star of all of her teenage (and adult) fantasies. The man Riley has grown into is even more tempting than the teen she once had a crush on. Chelle knows it's wrong to want him, but is tired of always doing the "right thing"...especially when Riley makes the "wrong thing" feel so right. My Only – Alex & Jamie The Firefighter… With his sexy good looks, natural born charisma, and playful sense of humor, firefighter Alex Sloan is Harper's Crossing's most eligible bachelor. Since returning home from serving his country as a Navy SEAL women have been lining up to be with him. Alex works hard and plays even harder. Nothing can stop him when he sets his mind to something. The Nurse… Jamie Miller learned the hard way that there is one person she can depend on in this world...herself. To keep her life on track she needs to stay focused on her ten-year plan that includes working two jobs and does not include sexy distractions. And distractions don't come much sexier than Alex Sloan. Will Jamie be able to resist the irresistible Alex Sloan, or will her resolve crumble when Alex decides that his mind is set on her? My Everything – Seth & Amber Strong. Sexy. Skilled. Seth Sloan is returning to Harper’s Crossing a war hero. As the leader of a Special Forces Marine Elite Unit Seth is trained to handle any situation…except one. An injury forced him to accept a medical discharge. Now he’s heading back to his hometown to a world he doesn’t recognize. Out of all the faces there to greet him is the one that he never expected to see again may just be the one that holds all the answers. Beauty. Brains. Bella. Amber Webb has everything she needs…she thinks. She owns Bella, a successful clothing boutique, has a close-knit group of loving friends and a full social calendar. She is perfectly content. Until her idyllic life gets turned upside down by random acts of vandalism and flipped right side up by the return of a mysterious man from her past. Sometimes a one night stand is just the beginning…

After ditching a horrific relationship--and her veterinary practice in the process--Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing.

But how could she ignore the six-foot-three darkly handsome god who tagged and researched sharks for a living--and made every nerve in her body tangle into an overly sensitive knot? Even her fear of sharks could not suppress their intense attraction. As founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden travels from port to port, educating and advocating on behalf of the mammals he adores--and spends his nights finding solace in the arms of strangers. The last thing Dane was looking for when he met Lacy Snow was a relationship, and the last thing he expected was to fall in love. Fifteen months--and hundreds of flirty emails, steamy phone calls, and sensual video chats--later, they reunite and take passion to a whole new level. But as Lacy's phobia meets Dane's past love life, their steamy romance is upended, and when tragedy strikes, Dane and Lacy are forced to face their deepest fears head-on as they try to navigate their own sea of love. --- BURSTING WITH LOVE "The whole Love in Bloom series is pretty amazing, but Bursting with Love just blew me away.

She takes a break from her fast-paced Manhattan lifestyle for a weekend at a survivor camp to rebuild her confidence and readjust her priorities. But when she meets the handsome guide, Jack Remington, she's drawn to everything about him--from his powerful physique to his brooding stare--despite the big chip on his shoulder. Powerless to ignore the heated glances and mounting sexual tension, Savannah begins to reassess her hasty decision. After losing his wife in a tragic accident, Jack Remington found solace in the Colorado Mountains. This solitary existence allows him to wallow in his guilt and punish himself for having made a decision that he believes cost his wife her life. He never expected to want to return to the life he once knew--but then again, he never expected to meet gorgeous, stubborn, and competitive Savannah Braden. One passionate kiss is all it takes to crack the walls the two have built to protect themselves, and allow love to slip in. While Jack fights his way through his guilt, and struggles to get back into the lives of those he left behind, Savannah is there to help him heal, and together they nurture hope that they've finally found their forever loves. --- HEARTS AT PLAY GOLD MEDAL WINNER in the Readers' Favorite Awards - Romance Sizzle Category 2014 NOTABLE ROMANCE BOOK, Shelf Unbound Magazine "Impressive and sweet and swoon-worthy...Melissa Foster struck the perfect balance, making the story real and lovely." -- Readers Favorite Brianna Heart has a six-year old daughter and a twelve-year plan to keep her life as simple as possible until Layla turns eighteen.

"Virna DePaul is amazing!" –Lori Foster, New York Times Bestseller This book bundle includes three contemporary romance novels from the bestselling series, Home To Green Valley. (What Love Can Do, Book #1) When a sweet and sassy baker meets the new Irishman in town, things start to sizzle... Quinn O'Neill gave up being a professional rugby player to help his mam after his dad died, and now she's gone too. All that's left for him in Dublin? Four younger brothers, and elusive dreams to explore. Then he finds a journal revealing family secrets, and heads to Northern California wine country, where his mam grew up. That's when Quinn meets her ... Lilly Parker. She's the baker at the B&B, an amazing gazelle of a woman. Blonde. Curvy. With high cheekbones that give her the look of an old-fashioned pin-up with a naughty side. She's wearing a pink and black apron that reads Life is Short--Lick the Bowl, and all Quinn can imagine is them: her, wearing nothing but that apron, and him, licking and savoring. The more time they spend together, the more Quinn believes Lilly's the one. Only she's headed to Miami in a week's time to pursue her own dream, and he has a decision to make. Does he go back to Dublin and his rugby career? Or does he make a home in the enchanted valley town, start his life fresh, and see if love's enough to make Lilly his forever? (The Way Love Goes, Book #2) A middle child of five Irish brothers, Conor O’Neill always enjoyed life footloose and fancy free. Then Con’s mother dies and he’s never felt so lost. With his oldest brother, Con explores new possibilities in Green Valley, California, where his mother grew up. Finding inspiration in the great, wide Pacific, Con opens a surf shop in nearby Timber Cove where he meets the classiest lass he’s ever seen. Madlyn Sanchez is surprised when the Irish surfer seems to take a liking to her. Older than him, a high-strung wedding planner, she couldn’t be more different than Conor. But the two have one thing in common—they’re both looking to start over. Before Madlyn knows it, they kick off an unlikely, passionate romance. But when Madlyn’s responsibilities in San Francisco can no longer be ignored, she kisses Con goodbye and wishes him well. Missing Madlyn more than he ever thought possible, knowing he’s let one too many opportunities pass him by, Conor closes up shop to go after her. In San Francisco, however, he discovers the truth behind Madlyn’s real life—a child and an ex-husband still in residence. Con just learned to commit to one woman—can he commit to a child as well? In no time at all, mother and son have Conor’s heart. But can an Irish rogue who once cherished his freedom convince the love of his life he’s more than ready to put down roots while still teaching her to fly? (I’m Gonna Love You, Book #3) A big, broad, and bold Irishman, Brady O’Neill never thought he’d leave Dublin, but he can no longer live in the city where he experienced his greatest joys and deepest heartaches. Moving to America, he joins his brothers in Forestville, California, to open a family restaurant. What he doesn’t expect is the spark he feels when he meets Anna Kincaid, a confident, gorgeous woman with enough sass to sink a ship. Owner of a local eco-adventure tour company, Anna Kincaid is familiar with all that is Forestville. So when recent Irish arrival, the insanely handsome and sexy Brady O’Neill, wants to visit the vineyard where his mother grew up, she agrees to be his guide. Soon, Brady’s showing his appreciation with more than flirtatious smiles and mind-boggling kisses. The chemistry between them may be explosive, but tensions heighten when Anna’s recklessness puts her in danger. Brady’s lost too much already; and a risk-taking woman with an impetuous nature could cost him yet again. Will Brady risk giving all he is to Anna? And will Anna learn that there’s no greater excitement in the world than taking a chance on love? Home To Green Valley Series: Book 1: What Love Can Do (Quinn) Book 2: The Way Love Goes (Conor) Book 3: I’m Gonna Love You (Brady) Book 4: Best Of My Love (Riley)

With one eye on the motives for and the manners of the production of early Christian narratives of Christian beginnings, and the other eye on modern scholarly and popular motives for and manners of appropriating the early Christian narratives, this book offers a bifocal meditation on the historiographical practices and problems entailed in the concept of Christian "origins". The author begins by examining why and how early and modern Christian "archive fever" (Derrida) converts the mythic notion of "origin" to the historical concept of "beginnings" and that sees in "beginnings" an endlessly redeeming past. The gospel of Mark is an elaborated example of "just another story" that, though it really is just another story, perhaps not a very good one by any accounting, is exalted to the status of a charter narrative that is read as the true story of how it truly was in the past. The story of Jesus, fixed just so by elaborate techniques of producing stories that present themselves as histories, is a second example of early and modern past-making for purposes that are not in the past but for which the past as a constructed ideal is valuable currency in the contest for social and political identity and power in the present. A third example of a constructed past as a fix for modern ills is evident in modern attempts to find in the beginnings of Christianity an ideology that favoured a set of practices that were emancipatory for women. The author exposes this reading as "wishful thinking" historiography and explains why such historiography is compelling both in the academy and in popular thinking. In the final chapter the author engages current historiographical theories in order to explain why the Christian past is like a dead ancestor who refuses to stay dead.
