Happily-ever-after doesn’t come easy when two kids and a famously promiscuous ex are part of the equation…

Jen – I didn’t plan to stay single after my divorce. I would’ve liked to find someone special, but single moms aren’t exactly sought after, and since my ex dates enough for both of us, I owe it to our daughter to set a better example. And I did, for ten long years. Needless to say, I wasn’t expecting to meet someone, and I definitely wasn’t expecting that someone to turn my world upside down. But it’s not just my world that’s affected by the new man in my life, which means I may have to choose between my daughter’s happiness and my own.

Anthony – After my wife died, I swore I’d never put myself in a position to feel loss like that again. Besides, I could never replace the mother of my child. I never intended to break that promise, but my meddling son ruined my plans. Turns out, the kid’s a great matchmaker, but nothing is easy when teenagers are involved. Or the Internet. Now I’ve got to fight for the second chance I didn’t think I wanted, and prove to two very stubborn women that they should take a chance on me.

If you wanted more of Jen after Purely Novel Intent, now’s your chance to see how her happily-ever-after unfolds.

Lies of omission are still lies – so how do we know who we fell in love with?

Lisa – I never planned to write steamy romances, but what started as a way to pay the bills is now a pretty lucrative side hustle. That’s great for my bank account, but not so great for my dream of writing a children’s book. So, I took a job with an education company. Where better to learn the ropes, right? Things started off great, until I met my boss’ brother, who could be my next cover model. Best not to let that slip though, since I didn’t put romance novelist on my resume. My pen name protects my secret, but is it forcing me to live a lie?

Chris – I hate playing handyman for my brother’s fledgling company when my role is so much bigger, but I get his desire to succeed on his own merits. I’ll play along and pretend my contribution is limited to what I can do with my hands instead of my bank account. As far as excuses go it has merit, and even gives me reason to bump into the beautiful new writer, who I can’t stop thinking about. But getting close to her is so, so wrong, considering she doesn’t know I’m the one who writes her paycheck.

Our attraction is undeniable, but the secrets we harbor threaten to tear us, and my brother’s dream, apart.

Elliot – Fleeing to Shane after my engagement ended was supposed to make me feel better. And it did, until I started wondering why my relationships never make me as happy as my friendship with him.

I’d be a fool to risk our friendship by trying to redefine it. So, why did I bait him into something more?

Shane – My teammates think a newly single Elliot will be a distraction heading into the playoffs, but just because my best friend is hot doesn’t mean I want her. Or it didn’t, until she dared me to touch her. Now I finally get what my teammates saw all along, but admitting it will make them question where my head’s at. The game and the girl are within reach, and I intend to win both. Good thing I’m trained to perform under pressure.

Paradise. Most of the time we assume it’s a place, but location isn’t everything.

Cade – Having my life mapped out for me means I don’t have much say in my future, so I figure I’ll enjoy the present. That’s why I’m squeezing in everything life has to offer before I take over the family business. My days are spent chasing an adrenaline rush on the mountain, and my nights with the endless buffet of tourists who pass through town. Perfect, right? I thought so, until Ms. PhD landed in front of me—literally—and looked at me like I’m more than just a tourist attraction. I liked that a lot, which means I need to keep my distance, so I don’t trap her in this town with me.

Cora – I’m not the kind of girl who’s easily distracted, which is what makes my interest in the town playboy so uncharacteristic. He’s never serious, and I don’t know any other way to be. Still, there’s something about his carefree, live in the moment attitude I find appealing. Freeing. It makes me want to follow his example and…have fun. He thinks he’ll be a bad influence on me, but what’s the harm in taking a page out of his playbook, just for the summer.

 This small-town, opposites attract romance will have you lusting after the guy who’s more than just a pretty face, and falling in love with his quirky hometown.

Carter – People call me privileged. They’re not wrong, but my life isn’t as easy as they make it out to be. Especially now, with the fate of a small ski resort and the surrounding town resting on my shoulders. No wonder my receptionist called in a masseuse to relieve my tension.

Let’s hope I’m as privileged as people think I am.

Happiness is redefined in this small-town romance by bestselling romance author, Michele Lenard.

Not all who wander are loveless.

Axel –Exotic travel, beautiful women, and adoring fans make it sound like I’m living the dream. Getting paid to race my dirt bike is a good life, no question, but after a while, it stops being fun and starts being work.  Nothing scares me more than getting burned out on the one thing that’s always brought me peace. That’s why I brought my crew to this tiny, tourist town in the deep woods of Colorado. They think we’re here to film on the local trails, but I’m hoping to scope out a place to rest. Then I see her…and it makes me think that this is a place I can call home.

Lennon – I know his type. Cocky. Carefree. Beautiful. Usually, that holds no appeal, but there’s something about his bold stare and his determined pursuit that I find irresistible. I’m not one to swoon over a man, but I’ve been known to indulge in one from time to time…When I allow myself a break. Then it’s back to grind with my true love, my restaurant, and the big plans I have in store. Unfortunately, the hotshot doesn’t get the message, and continually tries to steal my affection…as if it could be that simple. I’m not the falling in love type.

Friends become lovers in this small-town romance by bestselling romance author, Michele Lenard.

What do you do when you realize the person you need most has been in front of you all along?

Tiff – Each day is more of the same. I smile and wave, playing the role of the bubbly girl next door the town expects me to be. But deep down, I’m suffocating under the weight of their perception. I don’t want to be the cheery good girl. I want to be adventurous. Reckless. Desired. When the town player moves in across the hall, I see my opportunity. I know he’s always up for a good time, and he’d have just as much incentive as me to keep things a secret.

Deacon – Relationships aren’t my thing, but I love women and they love me. That’s why I moved to this tiny ski town in Colorado. My cousin promised a veritable buffet of female tourists and assured me I’d never get bored. He was wrong though.

Ryder – They say memories last forever, which is why I’m doing my best to drown them out. If I can’t remember them, they can’t hurt, right? That’s my theory, and I’ve done such a good job at proving it that I’ve landed myself in community service. No matter, I’ll just drown this out, too. Or I would, if my pesky new supervisor wasn’t lurking over me, thwarting me at every turn. Funny thing is, as much as she infuriates me, she’s the only thing I sort of want to remember.

Hailey – When my boss dumps a charity case in my lap, I can’t help but question whether he wants me to fail. After all, my job is hard enough without having to play babysitter, and I shouldn’t have to be responsible for a guy who’s given up on life.

Then I learn why he’s given up, and against my better judgment, I start to wonder if there’s a way we can help each other. If the guy he’s buried deep is one I could actually like.

Sometimes you have to see yourself through someone else’s eyes to understand who you really are.

Colt – Life tackled me when I wasn’t looking. One minute I’m in the zone, preparing for what I hope will be another winning season, and the next I’m struggling to keep my focus on the game instead of the prim and proper beauty my agent hired to help me plan for life after football. Usually women flock to me, but this one I have to chase, and I can tell she won’t be easy to win. That doesn’t scare me. It terrifies me. I’ve disappointed every woman I’ve ever known by putting the game first, and now that I found something I want more than another ring, I’m not sure I’m man enough to win off the field.

Samantha – I’m no stranger to alpha males. In my line of work they come with the territory, and I’ve been around long enough to hold my own. That’s why the cocky football player with a reputation for scoring on and off the field is such a surprise. On the surface he’s the kind of guy who could ruin my credibility, but when he sets his focus on me, he lets me see the person behind the persona, and it’s someone I respect. Like even. I swore never to mix business with pleasure, but the perfectly imperfect ball player is hard to resist, which begs the question; is he worth breaking my one and only rule?
