Summary

This is a story of friendship, love, family, and acceptance. A friendship that has withstood the test of time and has only gotten stronger. A family learning to get along and understand one another. A love uniting and becoming one. 
Alexis “Lexi” Bertand’s life could not be more perfect.  And then the unbelievable, or more importantly, the unacceptable happened.  Lexi learned that her husband had been having an affair.  After discovering her husband's infidelity, a barrage of emotions attacked her.  Anger, disgust, and sadness struck her crumbling ego.   
To make matters worse, Lexi’s family could not understand why she would divorce such a wonderful husband.  But, then again, the ‘D’ word was not in her mother's vocabulary. Her mother believed a husband’s ‘tiny’ indiscretions should be forgiven, and a divorce should never be considered. 
However, Lexi was not as forgiving as her mother. She refused to stay with a man who did not love her.   
Lexi had been so upset over everything that happened with Bennett, she never realized that her monthly ‘friend’  was MIA – missing in action.  That one realization shook her very being.  Still reeling from the impending divorce, Lexi was unsure how to tell her family and friends about the unexpected pregnancy.  
With Lexi’s life in such turmoil, she found herself turning to best friend Kyle for emotional support.  As Lexi and Kyle rekindled the friendship they once had, Kyle found himself falling in love with Lexi. But there were obstacles in his way. Could he raise another man's child? And this wasn’t any man, this was a man that he had called his best friend for years. And then there was Lexi, a woman who has built a wall around her heart. A wall that seemed to be impenetrable. 
As the months passed and Lexi's due date grew nearer, family bonds were repaired. But Lexi kept her heart protected, fearing it would be difficult to forgive Bennett for his betrayal and unsure if she could ever trust another man.  
Would Kyle’s love be enough to mend her broken heart?  Would the stress of the divorce endanger her unexpected pregnancy?

    He's a cocky pro athlete at the top of his game. But all he wants is another shot with the girl who got away. 
     
    I broke her heart ten years ago and left town. 
     
    She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn't matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I'm a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted. 
     
    But I'm not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her. 
     
    *** 
    He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I'm supposed to work alongside him like we don't have this huge, messy history? 
     
    But I'm older now, wiser, and I won't let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we're going to kiss and make up. 
     
    News flash, buddy: I am over you.

    Moving to this town was way more than Kiera bargained for. Meeting Daniel is earth-shattering and exciting. He is someone she can see having a future with. But along with Daniel's attraction, which fuels her desires, she also attracts someone who is out to terrify and destroy her sanity. 
    Keira starts to figure something is wrong when things in her house get misplaced and then go missing altogether. Soon after, bruised and beaten, she barely breaks away from the person out to destroy her. But how could she have caused someone to become this angry and filled with hatred toward her when she only moved to town a short time ago? 
    Can she find the courage to trust others to help her? Will the past prevent her from asking for the desperately needed support she needs, or will she deny there's a problem, ultimately causing her downfall? 
    Daniel is on a mission to help this woman, and as a security specialist and an ex-cop, he knows a thing or two about how to deal with the harsher side of life. His attraction to Keira is immediate and quickly grows. His rapidly intensifying desire should scare him, but it just gives him more resolve to keep and protect her. 
    As they spend more time together, he starts to suspect something is very wrong with Keira and wonders why she hasn't confided in him. When he finds out she's being stalked, he's determined to help her even though she fights it, but will it be too late?

    The Duke and I With 2nd Epilogue

    From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the first novel in her beloved Regency-set series featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family—soon to be a Netflix series. 
    In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable…but not too amiable. 
    Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter. The fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family, she has formed friendships with the most eligible young men in London. Everyone likes Daphne for her kindness and wit. But no one truly desires her. She is simply too deuced honest for that, too unwilling to play the romantic games that captivate gentlemen. 
    Amiability is not a characteristic shared by Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Recently returned to England from abroad, he intends to shun both marriage and society—just as his callous father shunned Simon throughout his painful childhood. Yet an encounter with his best friend’s sister offers another option. If Daphne agrees to a fake courtship, Simon can deter the mamas who parade their daughters before him. Daphne, meanwhile, will see her prospects and her reputation soar. 
    The plan works like a charm—at first. But amid the glittering, gossipy, cut-throat world of London’s elite, there is only one certainty:  
    Love ignores every rule…

In the face of his methodical seduction, her resistance is crumbling… 
    Heat of the Storm
