Summary

Gloria Sanchez was never a baseball fan. That is until she saw the new pitcher for the Texas Rangers. David Gutierez, on television at least, was handsome and exceptionally charming. As soon as she saw him, Gloria developed a true interest in the sport. When he comes to the taco truck where she works before his first big game, Gloria can hardly believe her luck.  
 
Luck, it turns out, is exactly what David is hoping Gloria can give him. He has a tradition that's won him games ever since he was in high school. He always buys two dozen breakfast tacos the morning of a big game. He doesn't eat all of them, but he has to buy them. If he doesn't, the team may very well lose. His ritual seems well founded when he makes trips to Gloria's taco truck a habit. The Rangers have won every home game since they met. Gloria's starting to think that she is the reason David keeps coming back, not the tacos.  
 
When David asks her to come on a road trip with him and the team (with taco making material in tow), her suspicion seems confirmed. She's convinced that this is more than an attempt to win on the road. This is a real date. But what will happen when Gloria discovers that David is more interested in winning than he is in her?  
A Standalone Short Story with No Cliffhanger!

    Four charming, witty novels—including The Nutmeg Tree—from the “highly gifted” New York Times–bestselling author of Cluny Brown (The New Yorker).   A master of the twentieth-century comedy of manners, British author Margery Sharp has been praised as “one of the most gifted writers of comedy” (Chicago Daily News) and “a wonderful entertainer” (The New Yorker). Available for the first time in a single volume, this quartet of novels provides a shining example of “her brilliantly acerbic fiction . . . [and] one of her greatest talents, creating female characters of toughness and complexity” (The New York Times).  Something Light: In 1950s London, professional dog photographer Louisa Datchett has decided it’s high time she snared herself a husband. Up until now, she’s been indiscriminately fond of men, who’ve taken shocking advantage of her good nature. At age thirty Louisa is ready for someone to take care of her and sets out on her romantic quest, in this New York Times bestseller.   “Brisk, bright, sly, engaging . . . a pleasure to read.” —Chicago Tribune  The Nutmeg Tree: Motherhood was never really free-spirited Julia Packett’s thing. Following the loss of her husband in World War I, Julia turned to her well-heeled in-laws to raise her daughter. Now twenty, Susan invites her mother to France for the summer to persuade her grandmother to allow her to marry. When Julia arrives, she quickly sees that her proper daughter is mismatched with a playboy. And when Susan’s distinguished legal guardian, Sir William Waring, shows up, romantic complications ensue.   “Original, subtle, and consistently entertaining.” —Kirkus Reviews  The Flowering Thorn: In 1929 London, socialite Lesley Frewen impulsively decides to adopt an orphaned boy. Moving to the tiny village of High Westover, Lesley finds herself challenged by a whole new way of life and changed by a young boy who begins to awaken her capacity to love.   “To those who ‘discovered’ Margery Sharp with The Nutmeg Tree, the reissue of this earlier novel . . . will be good news. The city-bred-country-won theme is handled with gay humor and enough of sentiment for general appeal.” —Kirkus Reviews  The Innocents: As World War II separates a three-year-old, mentally challenged girl from her parents, a British spinster takes on the responsibility of raising her and the two grow closer. But when the war is over and the girl’s mother returns, Antoinette doesn’t want to be separated from the only person who’s ever really understood her.   “Marvelously crafted . . . believable and heart-wrenching . . . [Sharp] is an incredibly perceptive writer.” —The Literary Sisters

    A moving and insightful novel about an impossible love triangle by the “exceptionally gifted,” New York Times–bestselling author of Anything (Fresh Fiction). Hugh Penders has been stuck in neutral for nearly a decade since his brother, Chase, died in an accident. He carries with him two secrets that he’s never been able to share with anyone: that he believes he might have been able to prevent the tragedy, and that he was deeply in love with Chase’s girlfriend, Iris. When Hugh’s father suffers a debilitating heart attack, Hugh must return to the New England home he’s been running away from for the past ten years. One day, he encounters Iris—who has long since moved away—on the street. They begin a friendship, and Hugh believes he’s falling in love with Iris all over again. But the ghost of Chase haunts them both. And when each reveals a truth the other never knew, their lives, their visions of Chase, and their chances for a future together will change forever, in this soulful, romantic novel charged by the power of desire and the impact of loss. “A joy to read.” —Long and Short Reviews “This emotional story is about a man coming to terms with his past and trying to figure out his future. Excellent.” —RT Book Reviews

     The proposal is fake, but the feelings are real. 
    June Green is heartbroken when her boyfriend gets engaged to another woman mere weeks after their breakup. She says a little too much to the dad of the two adorable children she nannies, and he decides to help her save face... by faking a proposal in front of her ex. She's always been quite fond of Roland, and can't pretend he's not attractive, but pretending to date your employer seems like a risky plan.
    Successful businessman and young widower Roland Kirk should know better than to get mixed up with his children's (inconveniently attractive) nanny. But when June's cruel ex starts baiting her right in front of him, he can't help himself—he not only claims he and June are an item, but stages a full romantic proposal. June goes along with it, and he's sure it's only to get back at the guy, but when their faked moment leads to a very real date and an unexpected, spine-tingling kiss, things get even more complicated.
    With the risk of messing up his kids' one good relationship, the stakes are high. But neither one of them can ignore the intensity of their attraction...

    “Nicholas Sparks fans will rejoice to hear there’s a new male author on the scene who writes beautifully about love and emotionally charged relationships.” —RT Book Reviews Only a few months ago, Gerry Rubato had everything he thought he needed from life. After nearly twenty years of marriage, he was still passionately in love with his college sweetheart, he had a bright, independent-minded daughter, and he had the surprising addition of a new child on the way. Then everything changed with stunning rapidity. With little explanation, Gerry’s daughter ran away with her older boyfriend. Then, only a month after giving birth to their son, his wife died suddenly. Now, Gerry needs to be everything to his infant child while he contends with two losses he can barely comprehend. And when a woman walks into his life as a friend and their relationship verges on something more, Gerry must redefine all that he knows about himself, about love, about loyalty, and about his dreams. “Lou Aronica writes with deep sensitivity of the power of love to transform and heal in the face of overwhelming tragedy. A lovely read.” —Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Lost and Found Bookshop “Tears of sadness and joy go hand in hand in this immensely satisfying story.” —RT Book Reviews
