Summary

Outrunning the demons that dog her in Miami, Troy escapes south to the Bahamas, the land of her birth.  She hopes that the new millennium can bring a new life and banish the specter of her parents' sudden and violent death, a crazy ex-boyfriend, and a stint in jail to the sea of forgetfulness. In paradise, she finds work as a Spanish tutor to Evie, a rebellious teenager whose life uncannily parallels her own. However, it is Simon, Evie's uncle, who makes his mark on Troy. 
For seven years, Simon has kept his promise to Deanna, his dead twin sister, protecting Evie, despite her painful and vicious rejection of him. That task and the demands of an investment banking career leave him little time for love. Desperate, he hires Troy, expecting that she would be just another tutor that Evie runs off with undue speed. Until fate intervenes… 
Troy and Simon have a lot in common—painful loss through death, a cautious nature, and a shared heritage that has linked the Bahamas and communist Cuba across the decades. Eventually, proximity, circumstance, and love for Evie soften Troy’s rough edges and melt the permafrost around Simon’s heart.  Simon offers Troy a ready-made family and shelter from the storms of life. 
But demons don’t give up so easily. When Troy’s past comes back to haunt her in the present, she must decide whether to take the path of least resistance that leads in the opposite direction... or to head toward the lights of home.

    Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met? 
    Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch--an anonymous virtual assistant service--is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson. 
    Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic. 
    Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth--that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face. 
    But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam! 
    Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.

    Sparkling Regency Romance from a Captivating New VoiceLady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. Entering her fourth Season and approaching spinsterhood in the eyes of society, she pours her innermost feelings out not in a diary but in letters to her brother's old school friend, a duke--with no intention of ever sending these private thoughts to a man she's heard stories about but never met. Meanwhile, she also finds herself intrigued by Marlow, her brother's new valet, and although she may wish to break free of the strictures that bind her, falling in love with a servant is more of a rebellion than she planned. When Marlow accidentally discovers and mails one of the letters to her unwitting confidant, Miranda is beyond mortified. And even more shocked when the duke returns her note with one of his own that initiates a courtship-by-mail. Insecurity about her lack of suitors shifts into confusion at her growing feelings for two men--one she's never met but whose words deeply resonate with her heart, and one she has come to depend on but whose behavior is more and more suspicious. When it becomes apparent state secrets are at risk and Marlow is right in the thick of the conflict, one thing is certain: Miranda's heart is far from all that's at risk for the Hawthornes and those they love.
