Lost and alone until fate, in the form of a gorgeous stranger, stepped in.
What chance did I stand against fate? The stars aligned for me.
So, I went all in, and I found my perfect match. The one who completed me. Someone who didn’t want me for my money or what it could do for them. Who only wanted me.
She was a beacon in the night. A beautiful damsel in distress whose loneliness tugged at my soul.
But then the truth came out, and doubt set in.
The biggest question—would I be able to forgive and forget, or were we doomed to fail?
The biggest problem—if forgiveness is impossible, would I be able to live with the decision while longing for what could’ve been?
Isabelle Marietta was used to running, and nothing was more satisfying than feeling
the pavement beneath her feet. When tragedy struck her family, she fell back on the one
thing she was good at: running, this time with her ten-year-old brother in tow.
Five years later, Isabelle’s brother decided he was done running from invisible
threats. When the high school’s guidance counselor, Nate Marshall, discovers the truth
and the past threatens to catch up to them, Isabelle is prepared to run again. But Nate is
determined to show Izzy that she can stop running once and for all.
Who says a cinnamon hero has to be a guy?
Lara is the cutest, most annoying human I’ll never adequately match up to. She’s a charity worker by day and takes care of sick animals by night. She’s the girl who always wins the awards but finishes last when it comes to relationships. She’s like a sugar rush that never bursts, and I’m not that kind of hyper. The problem is, I’m the injured bird this time around and hers is the only offer I’ve had to nurse me back to health.
Can we survive the next six weeks, or will she drive me to do something more stupid than breaking my leg?
He’s about to rock his best friend’s little sister’s heart strings.
My brother’s band is coming to town and has agreed to show up at a fundraiser I’ve arranged. There’s only one problem: Dunn Blackwood. He’s the lead guitarist and the man I’ve been in love with for as long as I can remember. Too bad for me, he’s also my brother’s best friend. There’s no chance of anything happening between us. He’d never look twice at a girl like me when he can have any woman he wants.
I’ve resisted Sloane Ellis for years, but when I see her standing there, all grown up with a smile I could get lost in and curves that just won’t quit, I’m done denying myself. And when her brother backs out of attending a dinner with her, I can’t step up quickly enough to take his place. She doesn’t know it yet, but her heart belongs to me, and I’ll do whatever it takes, even break up the band, to prove it to her.
