Title: Finding Mitch
Author: Lynn Jaxon
Genre: Contemporary Romance; Second Chance Romance




They say if you set something free and it comes back to you, it was meant to be. For Mitch and Jayna, what happens when the one you have never been able to forget is suddenly right back in the middle of your world?
Mitch
I believed in love once…until I saw how it only caused heartache and pain. Watching my dad break after losing my mom was more than I could process. Then feeling forgotten by the girl I thought would always be there for me was too much. I let her go, erecting a wall around my heart. Being a divorce lawyer is a daily reminder that I did the right thing. Have fun, but don’t allow anyone to get too close. It was working out just fine. At least until my past found its way back to me.
Jayna
He was the love of my life, my forever. When we attended different colleges, I thought our devotion was strong enough to handle the distance, but he said we should take a break, telling me it was for my own good. It was so hard to forget him, but I finally did, and even thought I had moved on. Now, years later, I again see the man I’ve never once stopped loving, only he’s not the same. Those old feelings have come crashing back in, now all I can do is hope that I’ll one day find my Mitch.
Will the promise they once made remain true? Can Mitch and Jayna find their way back to each other and rekindle the flame they thought would never extinguish? Or has time and distance changed them both?

Into the Clear Water by B. Celeste




Title: Into the Clear Water
Author: B. Celeste
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 1, 2020



Blurb

I used his body to forget the pain until the line we drew was buried under muddied water.

I used to believe in three things:
That true love only existed once, heartbreak couldn’t kill you, and everything happened for a reason.

But if that were true, I never would have watched Daniel McCray get married to another woman, have a beautiful baby girl, and pass away before my very eyes.

Everything I believed was I lie.

Until I met them.

Excerpt

I can’t believe we’re even having this conversation. “You’re not the boss of me, Easton. I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings about your friend doing the piercing, but it’s not the end of the world. And it would be money all the same if you let me pay. Why are you being so stubborn about this?”
“Not the boss of you,” he repeats, a slow smirk curving his features. His body turns to face me, towering over me when he straightens to full height. “I seem to recall that differently, especially when we’re in your bedroom and you’re begging me to bury my cock deeper inside you. Hmm. Have you forgotten how much you moan my name when I lick you, or how you pull my hair to go faster, or plead for me to fuck you just the way I know you like?”
My thighs press together as heat sweeps over my body. He knows what he’s doing because he chuckles like this amuses him. But I don’t find his mood swings funny. “What does that have to do with anything?”
He leans closer, brushing his lips against my ear as he speaks. “I should have been the one to give you what you wanted today because I know what you want. Just like I know what you sound like when you come, what it feels like when you squeeze my cock with that tight pussy of yours, and how loud you get when you don’t have to hold back. You want freedom, Piper. You always have.”
When he draws back, I’m stunned speechless. He takes advantage of it and shoots me a wink, causing my lips to part. He’s never winked before. And it’s … wow. Between those words and that gesture, I’m not sure I can properly fathom a response, and he knows it. Which is why, this time, he walks away first.

Mayday by Kat Addams




Title: Mayday: Tinder Love in the Golden Years
A Dirty South Series Novella
Author: Kat Addams
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 1, 2020



Blurb

Sometimes, all it takes is a hot meal—or a broken heater—to spark a long-lost flame!

Marilyn

I was looking for a handyman, not a “handsy” man. 
And don't think I was too old to know the difference. 
You wouldn't believe the things these eyes had seen. 
Thought I'd seen it all—until I joined Tinder. 
I was swiping men away like flies. To the left. To the left. 
Too grouchy. Too gassy. 
Not enough hair. Not enough teeth. 
I was elderly, not dead. 
The last person I’d expected to see was Clyde Jenkins.
Now, here was a man who could handle his tools. 

Clyde

I was looking for a home-cooked meal now and again … and maybe a respectable woman to warm my bed. 
After spending a little time on this online dating app, I wasn't sure there were many women my age still alive out there. 
Then, I stumbled across a photo that gave my pacemaker—and other parts—a tickle. 
Marilyn May … I knew she was a feisty lady and a dang good cook. 
She’d also happened to be my first sweetheart. 
So, I did what any self-respecting man in his post-prime would do. 
I swiped right, trimmed my nose hairs, and pulled out my church shirt. 

They don't call these the golden years for nothing!

Second Chance Spring by Delancey Stewart




Title: Second Chance Spring
Series: Seasons in Singletree #4
Author: Delancey Stewart
Genre: Small Town Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 1, 2020



Blurb

Paige Tanner grew up in the small town of Singletree—but she knows she has to leave to find what she really wants. Singletree might have other plans for her…

I did everything right—got engaged to my high school boyfriend, stayed faithful through college and med school, came home and got married. That was how I’d always thought my life would go. What I didn’t realize was that my husband wasn’t super clear on that whole monogamy thing.

Yeah.

Finding myself over thirty and divorced, living in the same small town where I grew up, I realized I needed a new plan. So I took action. I landed a job with a bigger practice in a big city where I’ll find more opportunities at work, and hopefully in my social life. I was ready to move on.

But when Cormac Whitewood and his adorable daughters come into my life, suddenly my big plans don’t seem so shiny and exciting. Suddenly, I’m finding myself drawn to the lonely widower, wishing for more time with him—even though he seems to have a strange fascination with exotic taxidermy. I can overlook a lot for a pair of deep golden eyes and strong broad shoulders.

The thing is, Cormac’s made it clear he isn’t over his late wife—and I’d never force my way into someone else’s family. And I’ve already made my plans.

So why do they feel so wrong?


Second Chance Spring is a full-length novel with an HEA about second chances, spring, and taxidermy. Okay, not really. It’s about the plans life makes for you while you’re busy making plans for yourself, and it’s full of snort laughs, touching moments, cake, and maybe a kangaroo or two.

Excerpt

“How are you, Mom?” 
She crossed her arms and swayed a bit, turning back and forth like a little girl. “Good, Cormac’s been keeping me company lately. Such a nice man.” 
“He is,” I confirmed. I wanted to say something else, but didn’t know quite what, so instead, I asked for a pumpkin muffin. “And tea,” I finished. 
“Actually,” Mom said, a little sparkle coming into her eye. “Come back here. I need your help with something.” She bustled toward the swinging door separating the kitchen from the shop. 
“You want me in the kitchen?” I asked, coming around the counter. I hadn’t been planning on helping out with baking, but I guessed I could. I helped sometimes when things got busy or if Mom was baking for a special occasion. I glanced longingly at the pumpkin muffins, all orange and plump behind the glass, and then followed my mother. 
“Yes, and oh, you know, I’m going to need another opinion too.” She pushed past me again, leaving me standing in the kitchen before a long metal table full of little plates with cookies and muffins cut into fourths all lined up. She’d clearly been planning this, and I wondered if she’d sprung into action, formulating her plan the second I’d texted her that I might stop by. 
A moment later, she was dragging a confused-looking Cormac through the swinging door and pushing him to stand at my side. She went around the other side of the table and grinned at us both. “I need you to taste test a few things,” she said, and she wrung her hands dramatically. “I just can’t decide which of these I should offer as my Cherry Blossom special.” 
Cormac laughed, a hint of discomfort in his voice. “What’s the Cherry Blossom special?” 
I turned to face him, swallowing hard before I was able to speak as the full force of his presence hit me. “Mom makes a big deal out of the annual Cherry Blossom festival. She bakes like ninety cakes for the cakewalk, and she always makes a special cookie or muffin for the week of the festival.” 
“So these are all cherry-themed?” Cormac asked, pointing at the assorted baked goods. 
Mom clapped her hands. “Exactly!” But then she frowned. “But they’re not all cherry flavored,” she clarified. “Like this one is chocolate hazelnut because I have it on good authority that George Washington enjoyed a nice bit of Nutella now and then. You know he cut down a cherry tree.” 
“Um,” Cormac said, and it seemed he might be about to question my mother’s ‘good authority’ about that Nutella thing. 
“Best not to ask,” I suggested, leaning close to him with a stage whisper. 
Mom shot me a narrow-eyed gaze, but then went on. “So the Washington cookie is here. This one is a cherry-vanilla blondie. This one here is the cherry crumb muffin, and that one is a Kahlua cookie.”
“Kahlua, Mom? What’s the cherry relationship there?” I asked. 
She shrugged. “I had a bit of Kahlua back here for inspiration. I spilled a cup into the first batch, but they were so good, I went with it.” 
“You drink Kahlua while you’re working?” Cormac asked, grinning.
“It’s my bakery,” Mom said. “I do what I want.” 
Cormac burst out laughing at that. “As you should,” he told her. 
“Okay, I’m leaving you to it. Come out and tell me which one wins when you’re done.” 
And then Cormac and I were alone, faced with a long table of baked goods and my mother’s obvious and embarrassing attempts at matchmaking. 
“If you need to get going, you totally don’t have to do this. She’s a little bit … manipulative.” 
He laughed again, the sound rolling through me like warm sand churning under gentle waves. “I like baked goods, actually. And I like your mom.” 
“She means well,” I agreed, looking up at him to find those gold eyes on me. I cleared my throat as heat rose to my cheeks. “She’s just always trying so hard …” 
“To …?”
I couldn’t hold his eyes, so I picked up a piece of Washington cookie instead. I popped a piece in my mouth and then said, “to set me up.” I hoped the muffled words would be enough of an answer for Cormac to drop it and that he might have the grace to pretend he’d understood me. What I’d said had sounded a lot more like, “oo fett be aaa.” 
He picked up a piece of muffin and shoved it between his lips and then mimicked me, saying, “I’m sorry, I didn’t get that last part.” But his words were closer to, “I arrrey, I ninny ett aa ass mar.” 
I burst out laughing, bringing my hand to my mouth to keep from spitting cookie, and was relieved when Cormac’s shoulders shook to match mine, both of us laughing over a childish joke. But it took off the edge. 
“She’s always trying to set me up,” I said, my mouth clear now. 
He looked down at the table and then glanced at me sideways, that little smile lifting one side of his mouth again and sending my heart racing. “Your mom is trying to set you up with me?” 
Oh man, this was embarrassing. “Yeah. But you can just ignore it. She does this all the time.” I popped a piece of cherry vanilla muffin in my mouth and chewed, leaning against the table. “She’s worried I’ll die old and alone, since my marriage failed.” He might as well know I was a withering divorcee, if he didn’t already.
“Oh, I’m sorry,” he said, looking back up at me. “I didn’t realize you’d been married.” 
“My husband also pretty much had no idea he was married,” I told him, having long since moved past the hurt that came with Adam’s unfaithfulness. 
“Oh no,” Cormac said, trying not to laugh. 
“Yeah, it didn’t go all that well. I’m better off.” I shrugged. 
For a minute, we just tasted cookies and muffins, comparing our opinions of each. And then, Cormac turned to face me again. 
“Well, for the record,” he said, not quite meeting my eye. “If I were in a position to be set up, this would definitely have worked.” 
It felt like the breath was sucked out of my lungs. What had I expected? That my mother’s ridiculous scheming would actually work? Of course, he had a girlfriend or something. “You’re not, though,” I said. It was only kind of a question. “In a position like that,” I clarified.
“I wish I were,” he said, and I almost believed him, based on the wistful tone of his voice. 
I looked at my neighbor then, allowing my appreciation for his charm, his rugged good looks, and his clear affinity for family to color my voice. “I kind of wish you were too,” I said.

Title: Chasing Melody
Author: Erin Cristofoli
Genre: Rockstar Romance
Release Date: April 1, 2020
Chase Brighton is a dick.
Elle Holloway needs a job that will get her off of her friends couch. When one practically lands in her lap, she is determined to snag it even though the job description is vague. But when she learns that she will be working for the world famous rock star Chase Brighton, her confidence begins to waiver.
Chase might make her heart race, but his attitude sucks. He is cocky and moody. He even accuses her of wanting her fifteen minutes of fame. But he is also a single dad to the most adorable little girl—and he needs Elle to be his nanny.
Heading out on tour, the last thing Chase needs is to be confined on a bus with a woman as sexy as Elle. It’s enough to drive a man insane as his thoughts are filled with fantasies of her instead of the music he should be focused on. To keep her at arm’s length, he gives Elle a hard time at every opportunity.
As their attraction grows, they struggle to keep it professional, but sometimes fate has plans of its own. When the downsides of Chase’s fame pour a cold dose of reality on them, can they find a way to make things work, or will their differences pull them apart?
