Overview
"New York Times "bestselling author Karen Hawkins sets Scottish hearts afire in this delightfully witty and sexy Regency romance, the first in her Duchess Diaries series.
Urged by her favorite nephew, the intimidating Duchess of Roxburghe agrees to transform a thorny Scottish rose into a lovely bloom. But even she isn't prepared for fiery Rose Balfour.
At seventeen, Rose fell wildly in love with Lord Alton Sinclair, known as Lord Sin for his wicked ways. Stung by his indifference, the starry-eyed girl tried to win an illicit kiss, but then panicked and pushed the notorious rakehell into a fountain. Leaving Lord Sin floating among the lily pads to the mocking laughter of his peers, Rose escaped back to the obscurity of the Scottish countryside.
Six years later, Sin convinces his aunt, the Duchess of Roxburghe, to invite Rose to her annual house party, where he plans to get revenge by making Rose the laughingstock of polite society. To his astonishment, he finds she has become an alluring woman who threatens to turn the tables on his nefarious plans. Thus Sin and Rose begin an epic battle of the sexes that becomes more passionate at every turn. Eventually, one will have to surrender...but to vengeance? Or to love's deepest passion?

A big, bad bodyguard

Shannon McKenna makes the pulse pound with her sultry and suspenseful One Wrong Move. Heroine Nina Christie is followed and stuck with a hypodermic needle, and strange “doctors” at the hospital attempt to kidnap her. Forced to flee, she contacts a friend, desperate for help. That’s when computer security consultant Alex Aaro gets involved; a buddy asks him to be Nina’s bodyguard. This isn’t a good time for him, though. He’s coming out of the shadows to say goodbye to his dying aunt, which puts him in the proximity of his crime boss father. But as the danger becomes more dire for Nina, Aaro steps up and saves her life . . . then finds himself on the run with the beautiful woman. Nina, wary of men, finds herself fascinated by big, bad Aaro. As they try to understand the threat against them, what seemed like an adrenaline-fueled attraction turns to love—but they face lethal obstacles. The language is raw and the action fast-paced in this page-turner.

SWEET TEMPTATION
Small-town Icicle Falls is in almost as much trouble as its generations-old candy factory, Sweet Dreams, in Better Than Chocolate by Sheila Roberts. Just weeks away from losing her family’s chocolate business to the bank, Samantha Sterling struggles to raise funds, and appealing to hunky bank manager Blake Preston doesn’t change a thing. So what if he’s sexy—he’s clearly cold-hearted. With the help of her two sisters and her newly widowed mother, Samantha conceives of a chocolate festival, an idea the whole town gets behind. But can they pull off the event? While Samantha prepares for the weekend, her mother must learn to forge a new life for herself. At times poignant and also just fun, the story will have readers rooting for Sweet Dreams and the Sterling family. The romance comes with kisses only, but the very sweetest kind.

TOP PICK IN ROMANCE
Young Rose Balfour is determined to get a shot at happily ever after in How to Capture a Countess by Karen Hawkins. However, the outcome looks uncertain after she meets Lord Alton Sinclair—“Lord Sin”—and determines he’s the man to deliver her first kiss. While their embrace is as delicious as a girl could dream, the heated moment leads her to shove the handsome earl away . . . and into a nearby fountain. Lord Sin gains the nickname “Lord Fin,” and six years later he still dreams of wreaking revenge on the unknown young lady who impugned his reputation. Now 22, Rose re-meets Lord Sin at a house party. He tells her his intention: to seduce her then walk away. But instead his interest only grows. Rose is just as smitten, though she’s sure it cannot last—unless the two can get past their pride and make it through the challenges they set up for each other. Amusing side characters, including a passel of pugs and a matchmaking duchess, round out a fast-paced, passionate romp.
