Summary

Tender romance, witty humor, spine-chilling suspense. 
You'll lose yourself in this book because the characters seem like you could sit down with them over coffee. 
Etta and Tom have kissed passionately but don't remember it. They're both starting life over, she as a writer in grad school and he, as a former hockey player, after a career-ending injury. They start out as friends, but soon their relationship blossoms into much more. 
Is it possible to start over fresh with baggage from the past? Or will what went before come looking for you when you least expect it? Words from another Henrietta, who re-built her life from tragedy, bring answers that allow Etta to move forward. It may be too little too late. 
Henrietta is a coming-of-age romance, the first in a three-book series, set in Marquette, Michigan, and rural Iowa. You'll be amazed at how similar it is to real-world events. If you like engaging romances steamy enough to raise your heart rate, download this gem today.

    When Caroline Trent is kidnapped by Blake Ravenscroft, she doesn't even try to elude this dangerously handsome agent of the crown. After all, she's been running from unwanted marriage proposals. Yes, Blake believes she's a notorious spy named Carlotta De Leon, but for six weeks until her twenty-first birthday, when she'll gain control of her fortune, hiding out in the titillating company of a mysterious captor is awfully convenient -- and maybe just a little romantic, too. 
    Blake Ravenscroft's mission is to bring "Carlotta" to justice, not to fall in love. His heart has been hardened by years of intrigue, but this little temptress proves oddly disarming and thoroughly kissable. And suddenly the unthinkable becomes possible -- that this mismatched Couple might be destined for love.

    He saved her life… 
    When Annalise Hadley is tossed over the side of her honeymoon barge, the newly minted duchess knows she’s been left for dead—for her husband’s only interest is in her vast dowry, not her muddied lineage. However, she didn’t count on a savior. Especially not an honorable, sinfully intriguing earl who will tempt her to risk everything—again. 
    Now he will seduce her heart and soul. 
    A man with his own demons, Owen Crawford, the reclusive Earl of McDowell, is enchanted by the mysterious, courageous woman he rescued. He will help her heal, teach her to protect herself, and then send her away—so that she’ll never see he’s far from the hero she believes him to be. 
    But days and nights alone prove that some secrets are meant to be discovered…some desires are too powerful to resist…and some wounds can be healed only by love.
