In the first McCord Brothers contemporary, bestseller Fossen strikes a patriotic chord that makes this story stand out. Capt. Riley McCord, an Air Force combat rescue officer, has returned to his huge family ranch in Spring Hill, Tex., to recover from an injury and PTSD. He thought the place would be deserted, which is good, as he doesn’t want to be seen in pain or in the throes of a flashback—but his childhood friend Claire Davidson, who’s now a wedding photographer, shows up with her young son to help him, and other women are lined up for their shifts. Claire’s not married and doesn’t volunteer any info on her son’s paternity. As the central relationship turns hot and sexy, side characters traipse humorously through the story. Complicated family backstories add depth to the main characters and highlight their need to let go of past hurts and move forward. (Mar.)
Romance: Reluctant hearts
Preventing scandal brings two aristocrats together in Tracy Anne Warren’s Regency romance Happily Bedded Bliss, part of the Rakes of Cavendish Square series. The impetuous Lady Esme Byron happens upon a naked man by a secluded country lake, and she stealthily sketches him while he’s sleeping. When the sensational page in her sketchbook is publicly revealed, the subject is recognized as Gabriel, Lord Northcote, and there is only one solution in the eyes of the Byron family: They must wed. The pair reluctantly agrees. Despite the circumstances, the notorious womanizer and the animal-loving innocent forge a sizzling partnership—until a chance encounter reminds Gabriel that he was made a fool by love once before. He vows to distance himself from Esme before he becomes too attached. It’s too late for his bride, however, and Esme is perplexed by her husband’s remote behavior. Not one to give up, she fights for what she wants: a closeness that will give Gabriel, who never had a loving family, everything he needs, too. This Regency delight is a sexy, charming and satisfying romance.

However, the pair finds it impossible to remain apart, and Claire swears she understands that their relationship is short-term. But will Riley really be able to walk away?
