Ruby Whitlock is on the honeymoon from hell.

Caught up in an exhilarating adventure that spans the Caribbean, Leo and Ruby soon find themselves entangled in each other—in more ways than one.

But blank slates are hard to come by, and a piece of her past is waiting for her there. Heir to the Heritage Fruits company, Jonathan Kensington is the guy who not only made Leah's past difficult, he also seems determined to complicate her present as well.
Jon is trying to prove to the Heritage Fruits board that he, not his manipulative uncle, should be running the business.

To avoid forcing a buyout of Leah's part of the building, Jon strikes a compromise with Leah, and the two go into business together. With her vision and his know-how, it might work. And Leah might realize he's loved her since high school. If only he didn't keep on shooting himself in the foot by boxing her out of important decisions.
Sparks fly in this romantic story of two people who must learn to trust both each other and the one who called them to this journey.
In Regency England, a pretty young widow loses her estate—to the man who blames her for his broken heart . . . Maude Bellamy is devastated when the intervention of her strict father prevents her from eloping with her true love, Luke Hexham. But it is not long before she is married off to Luke’s well-to-do cousin—a good match in her father’s eyes, but an abhorrent one to Maude. Eight years later, her husband is dead and Maude, Lady Hexham, is appalled to find his entire estate belongs to Luke—with no provision for either herself or her young daughter. Luke has never forgotten Maude’s apparent treachery, and now he has a chance at revenge. But as much as he still carries the scars of that betrayal, he cannot ignore the stirring feelings within his heart. And soon, both Maude and Luke realize that perhaps it is never too late for true love. But even as they finally come together, there are those who will do anything to keep them apart . . .

Selah Hopewell seems to be the only woman in the Virginia colony who has no wish to wed. True, there are too many men and far too few women in James Towne. But Selah already has her hands full assisting her father in the family's shop. And now she is in charge of an incoming ship of tobacco brides who must be looked after as they sort through their many suitors.
Xander Renick is perhaps the most eligible tobacco lord in the settlement. His lands are vast, his crops are prized, and his position as a mediator between the colonists and the powerful Powhatan nation surrounding them makes him indispensable. But Xander is already wedded to his business and still grieves the loss of his wife, daughter of the Powhatan chief.

Bestselling and award-winning author Laura Frantz takes you to the salty shores of seventeenth-century Virginia in this exploration of pride, honor, and the restorative power of true love.
After fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It's a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucke--men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew looking for an experienced guide. When his guide appears, Sion balks. He certainly didn't expect a woman. But it is not long before he must admit that Tempe's skill in the wilderness rivals his own. Still, the tenuous tie they are forming is put to the test as they encounter danger after danger and must rely on each other.With her signature sweeping style and ability to bring the distant past to vivid life, Laura Frantz beckons readers to join her in a land of Indian ambushes, conflicting loyalties, and a tentative love that meanders like a cool mountain stream.
A runaway bride jumps out of a window—and into the clutches of a rake—in this witty Regency tale by “a brilliant star of the romance genre” (RT Book Reviews). Ellen Marling lives in terror of her wedding night to the beastly Baron Basil Brockhaven. After she is forced into the marriage by her father, a leap in the dark from the bedroom window seems more appealing than spending even one night with the loathsome lord . . . Until she discovers her leap has delivered her straight into the hands of the notorious Marquess of Trent, as handsome as he is hedonistic. Ellen has traded a monstrous husband for a masterly rake, and now faces the prospect of the greatest danger of all: falling in love. “A superb storyteller.” —Heather Graham, New York Times–bestselling author of Come the Morning
