Sometimes Love is Found in the Most Unexpected Places!
Love isn't always a fairy tale, and it doesn't always go as planned. Sometimes the best stories, though, are the ones that are the most unexpected. Join Karen Witemeyer, Mary Connealy, Regina Jennings, and Melissa Jagears for novellas that celebrate the power of love to triumph . . . even when circumstances go awry!
The Husband Maneuver by Karen Witemeyer
When ranch foreman Daniel Barrett seems ready to leave her life forever, Marietta Hawkins decides to grab the reins on their relationship. But to have any hope of maneuvering him into a proposal, she has to act fast or risk losing him completely.
Her Dearly Unintended by Regina Jennings
Josiah Huckabee just wanted to make sure Katie Ellen Watson was safe, but when the only bridge to her farm is washed out, the two find themselves alone. Alone, that is, until a menacing stranger appears. Maybe by pretending to be newlyweds, they'll save their reputations--but can pretending to be in love turn into the real thing?
Runaway Bride by Mary Connealy
Hired to help Carrie Halsey escape from a dangerous man intent on making her his wife, Big John Conroy never expected the job to interrupt his solitary Texas Ranger life. But now that he's promised to keep Carrie safe, he discovers he may just want to make a few more promises.
Engaging the Competition by Melissa Jagears
Harrison Gray and tomboy Charlotte Andrews have been rivals for years. With Charlotte intended for someone else, it seems they'll never settle their differences until an accident changes things completely. When Charlotte breaks Harrison's glasses--without which he's nearly blind--she must help with his teaching position, and working together forces these former adversaries to reconsider everything.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
I love that authors are releasing novellas to bridge the often year-long wait between releases of their full-length novels, and joining forces with one another in a collection makes it that much better! While I don't recall previously reading a novel by Melissa Jagears, Karen Witemeyer, Regina Jennings, and Mary Connealy are all favorites of mine, so I knew these stories would be a delight, and I was right. Entertaining plots and endearing characters immediately swept me into these tales. Brief enough to read in an evening yet long enough to have a twist or two, these novellas are a perfect way to try out a new author or enjoy more of a favorite. Curl up on a winter evening with this charming collection!
