Beyond the Gardens

Beyond the Gardens
by Sandra C. Lopez
Genre: Teen Fiction
At the age of 18, Esperanza Ignacio begins her college years at an upscale Los Angeles art school, where she studies to fulfill her long-term dream in Animation. But she soon learns the truth to the old folktale: “you can take the girl out of the barrio, but you can’t take the barrio out of the girl.” Even though she’s getting financial aid, Esperanza works a part-time job during her break from classes just to make ends meet. Her roommate, Anna, is what she calls a “chicana from Beverly Hills” because of the rich daddy and the new car she got for her quinceañera.
Things get a little confusing for Esperanza when an old friend comes looking for her, hoping to start a meaningful relationship. But is Carlos the right guy for her? She never even considered him to be anything more than a friend since high school. Then comes Jake, a gorgeous mechanic, who shares her passion for books and loves her for who she is. What’s a girl to do?
Strength and determination help pave the way for the future. And, as she approaches her graduation, she is faced with a difficult decision: should she leave Los Angeles and leave behind her family, her home, and everything she’s known? Ever since she was born in the California barrio of Hawaiian Gardens, she’s always had to look over the fence, wondering what she’s been missing. Now she’s taking a flying leap over to see what’s beyond the little barrio. What’s beyond her family, her friends, and her past? What’s beyond the little nothing town, where dreams don’t exist? What’s beyond The Gardens? Is it life, love, a future? The story of Esperanza is finally concluded in this wildly entertaining and heart-warming sequel.

Two women. The men they love. One desperate plan.

 

Pilot Tris Miles is finally getting the recognition she deserves. She is a trusted captain and confidante to her boss at Westin Charter Company, and mentor to her young, ambitious co-pilot Bruce. Tris is offered a coveted promotion and the opportunity of a lifetime—to fly a prestigious “angel flight,” transporting a critically ill woman from a remote town in northern Canada to the US for medical treatment.

But Tris needs more than professional success. Still alone almost three years after her lover Bron’s death, Tris meets Mike, a local pilot with a secret past he refuses to discuss. Their budding relationship stumbles when Mike gets hired by Westin Charter to compete for the promotion Tris was promised.

As Tris & Mike’s professional battle intensifies, their personal relationship deepens.  Life is getting a whole lot more complicated for Tris, and it’s about to get worse as the angel flight embarks. No one could imagine what awaits them in Canada, and how each will have to fight for their lives on this mission of mercy.

 

Love. Loyalty. Obsession. What propels YOU?

Soon, she finds herself growing fond of the bar, Helen, and the town. She’s even found a friend in Grey, the local plumber. The tiny town puts her at a crossroads: keep hiding her identity to preserve her new reputation or let down her guard and reveal her true self to the people she’s grown to love. But the choice is ripped from her hands when tragedy strikes the bar and saving it requires every tool at her disposal.

Can Logan find a true home among the people of Ramsbolt Maine?

Raiden by A.M. Hargrove




Title: Raiden
Series: Kent Brothers #2
Author: A.M. Hargrove
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 24, 2020



BLURB

Raiden Kent. Wealthy. Possessive. Commanding. 

To say his intense reaction to Scottie Sullivan barging into his life shocked him was an understatement. 

Shrewd, savvy, confident, the former DEA agent ran circles around him in cyber security, his specialty. 

Her curves and beauty made focusing on business absurd. 

Raiden couldn’t predict Scottie would be his guardian angel in disguise, or how badly he needed her protection. 

The day she saved his life made that clear. 

Now he had to choose if having Scottie by his side was worth the angst she created. 

Could he handle the constant threats hanging over her head each time she strode out the door? 

Would her insistence on playing hero be their destruction? 

Raiden recognized one thing. 

A strong, independent woman like Scottie would never be dictated to. 

He had a choice to make that would change everything.

The Billionaire’s Beauty by Ava Ryan

 

From the new fairy godmother of petal-dropping romance,

Ava Ryan, comes The Billionaire’s Beauty,

the second standalone in the Fairy Tale Billionaire series.

 

 

No one walks away from me. Not a client, not a deal… I won’t let her go, either.

They call me The Beast.

Some people think I’m a bully. I’m not here to make friends.
I ruthlessly clawed my way to the top of the real estate market in NYC. No friends needed.

She’s my feisty executive assistant. My right hand… woman.

We have an unspoken arrangement: she pretends I’m smarter than she is while I pretend not to notice how sexy she is.

That was before she gave me her notice while wearing that dress.
I can do a lot. Run my family empire. Ignore the loneliness the top brings. Punch anyone who looks twice at her.

But letting her go without a fight?
Over my dead body…
