FAINT OF HEART NEED NOT APPLY
Clara may be the woman Adam wants, but there's one problem: she's far more interested in publishing her women's journal than getting married--especially to a man said to be dead-set on vengeance. Though, with her nose for a story, Clara wonders if his desire for justice is sincere--along with his incredibly unnerving intention to be her husband. If her weak-kneed response to his kiss is any indication, falling for Adam clearly comes with a cost. But who knew courting danger could be such exhilarating fun? Madeline Hunter's novels are: "Brilliant, compelling . . . An excellent read." --The Washington Post "Mesmerizing." --Publishers Weekly "Pure passion." --Booklist

Romance: Dangerous passion
Romance and suspense entwine at a sprawling ranch and upscale resort in Come Sundown by Nora Roberts. Bodine Longbow’s family has lived and worked in western Montana for generations, and she currently runs their luxurious resort. When old friend Callen Skinner returns to the area and gets a job at the resort’s ranch, he and Bodine start circling each other. Romance is in the air, but so is danger. Twenty-five years ago, Bodine’s aunt ran off and never returned. Now young women in the area are disappearing—and then turning up dead. Bodine, her family and Callen continue providing leisure activities for their guests, but the beautiful countryside now contains a new menace. Roberts’ latest is an engrossing read that celebrates family ties, Western landscapes and, as always, the love between a man and a woman.
Going home again means new romance in About a Dog, the first book in Jenn McKinlay’s new Bluff Point series. Mackenzie “Mac” Harris takes a two-week break from her job in Chicago to attend the festivities of her best friend’s wedding in their Maine hometown. Reconnecting with the past means facing up to being left at the altar seven years before—and trying to forget her unhappiness in the arms of her best friend’s younger brother, Gavin Tolliver. He’s now the town vet, and while Mac thinks seeing him again might be awkward, she can’t deny the attraction running between them. She battles succumbing to it as they attend several prenuptial events, but soon they are enjoying each other’s company and that of a rescued dog, Tulip. Gavin’s the first to declare his love, but before Mac can reciprocate, the wedding day is upon them. There are more obstacles to happiness following the vows, and Mac must work for her forever. About a Dog is a cozy yet sexy romance with a puppy on the side—what’s not to enjoy?
