A Family To Call Her Own from the Author: Irene Hannon. When Rebecca Matthews saved an injured stranger, she never realized how her lonely life would be forever changed. For although reporter Zach Wright had been too confused to ask the name of his beautiful Good Samaritan—and despite Rebecca's attempt to remain anonymous—Zach soon discovered his angel of mercy. Like sunlight warming his chilly soul, Rebecca reminded him that true goodness still endured. Zach prayed that God's grace would shine on him once more. For how else could the world-weary loner give Rebecca what her heart most wanted...a family of her own.

Drowning her sorrows didn't help, and neither did the job she'd hoped would give her a sense of purpose. Now trying to rebuild her life, she finds solace in her best friends, fellow military wives who understand what it's like to love-and lose-a man in uniform . . . and the memory of one stolen night that makes her dream of a second chance at love. Dalton Smith has known more than his fair share of grief. Since his wife's death, he revels in the solitude of his cattle ranch. But try as he might, he can't stop thinking about the stunning redhead and the reckless, passionate night they shared. He wasn't ready before, but Dalton sees now that Jessy is the only woman who can mend his broken heart. So how will he convince her to take a chance on him? (95,000 words)

Dear Canada Days Of Toil And Tears from the Author: Sarah Ellis. An eleven-year-old orphan is reconnected to her mother's family, but her courage and strength are tested as she is put to work in a textile mill. Flora is a young, imaginative girl who has dreamt of having a family to call her own since her parents died from pleurisy when she was three. She dreams of family dinners. She dreams of friends. But mostly she dreams of leaving the orphanage. As the diary begins, Flora is still in an orphanage in Kingston, but her Auntie Janet has just married, and she and her husband James send for Flora to come and live with them in Almonte, Ontario. Once she arrives at her aunt's, Flora begins work in the Almonte Mill, even though she is underage - typical for many children of the era. She works from dawn to dusk, near huge and noisy machines, and she sees the effects of the mill on workers who have lost an arm or their hearing. Still, this life is better than going back to the orphanage. But when Uncle James loses several fingers at the weaving machine and can't work anymore, money is really tight, and it's up to Flora and her aunt to find a way out of the predicament. Through all her trials, Flora writes down her feelings in a journal, one she addresses to "Dear Papa and Mama", because it makes her feel close to the parents she lost when she was young. Days of Toil and Tears includes historical background giving readers the social context of young mill workers, and a map of the textile industry of Canada, as well as fascinating photographs from this era.

But Kellen has just inherited the inn Maggie manages—her former family home—and the two butt heads at almost every turn. He's handsome, and clearly a devoted father, but with all the changes taking place, Maggie worries she may soon be jobless, homeless or both. At war with her emotions, Maggie will have to decide what truly matters—heart or home.

Karma Chameleon from the Author: Khojesta Price. She is still the exotic creature that swam across the seven seas to find me-wistful, demanding, and playful. There were piles of cards: birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine's, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year-all wrapped up neatly with ribbons. There were dried flowers, old perfume bottles, costume jewelry, hats, gloves, old lace peignoirs, and stuff that I didn't even recognize. Your kiss lands on her cheek as she rearranges herself on her bed-the beautiful brass bed where you both spent such happy times together Vivid images appear and go running by your mind faster than the speed of light. Your legs weigh a ton. "Another time maybe," she says looking at the patch of blue summer sky high above her window, "in another life, my love," she whispers to the spruce tree outside. "Peek a Boo, Daddy," she'd say, hiding herself behind my couch while I read the daily newspaper. I can already hear the pitter-patter of her tiny feet. My friend gets up to leave. I walk him to the door. He looks much taller than I remember him and very handsome-much more handsome than any knight I've ever known.

The Secret Seduction from the Author: Cathy Gillen Thacker. Lily Madsen promised herself that she would never again live up to her reputation as the 'Ice Princess' of Holly Springs. To prove it, she's got a list of goals that are decidedly un-prissy—not to mention a certain bet Lily's made with some of her friends that says this virgin can seduce a visiting TV star who's in town for only a week. All Lily needs is a little help from her friend Fletcher Hart who just happens to be an animal consultant for the TV show. She needs him to get her on the set. Fletcher will be damned if he's going to let Lily throw herself at some Hollywood heavy—even if it means placing a wager of his own. The bet? That he can steer Lily away from the arrogant TV star and straight into his arms! But every wager comes with a price. The question is, are Lily and Fletcher prepared for the consequences?
