But these cowboys are about to get wrangled by the love of some very unique women--the kind who can melt hearts and lay it all on the line.Air force captain Riley McCord has come home on medical leave to find one heck of a welcome reception. Every unattached woman in Spring Hill, Texas, wants to nurse him back to health. That includes his childhood friend Claire Davidson--the only person who understands how damaged he really feels. In high school, she chose his best friend over him. According to Riley's rules, that should make her off-limits forever. But when Claire suggests a no-strings fling, he can't refuse. Claire always wanted Riley--but she also craved the safety and stability he couldn't offer. So she chose another path, only to end up crazier about him than ever. She's even convinced herself that this time she won't be devastated when he leaves. Yet once Riley realizes the depth of Claire's feelings--and his own--he'll have to make the ultimate choice: return to the job he loves or stay home for the woman who's always lived in his heart.

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.
