Publisher's Summary

Six brand new contemporary romance novellas with bestselling and award winning authors.

In the novella Too Good to Be True by Heather B. Moore, Gwen uses her wedding photography business to keep her life simple and focus on something other than her own broken heart. When Jack, a guy too handsome for his own good, helps her clean up after a photoshoot, then asks her out, she doesn't know if she can handle dating again. The more she gets to know Jack, the more she likes him, but everything about him seems too good to be true.

Gone Fishing, a novella by Kaylee Baldwin, follows Claire as she tries to convince her dad to leave his start-up company as a boat guide and come back home to Colorado. He's the only one who can defend Claire against her domineering mother. But when she arrives at the San Diego harbor, she's met with more than one surprise. First, that her dad is truly living his dream, and second, she's unexpectedly attracted to his business partner, Miguel.

In The Pier Changes Everything, a novella by Annette Lyon, Alexandria has one last task to perform for her late husband, who died much too young: scatter his ashes in the Pacific Ocean. She goes to the Santa Monica Pier to do just that, but her plans get sidetracked after meeting Michael and feeling an immediate connection to him. And the more time they spend together, the more they discover that they have in common - including past romantic hardships.

In Jennifer Moore's novella A Hero's Song, AnneMarie's career as a romance novelist is skyrocketing and her agent books her on a late night talk show. The host gets her to admit that she was in love once, with a guitar player. Moments after her segment, Lance Holden appears on the same stage, to perform his newest song. Is it a terrible coincidence? AnneMarie hasn't seen Lance ever since he broke her heart ten years ago. But as Lance tries to reconcile with AnneMarie, she finds herself taking a second chance.

In Stay with Me, a novella by Shannon Guymon, Jolie moves to L.A. to take on a nanny position for the summer. When Fitz, the family's chauffeur, picks her up at the airport, she wonders if every man in LA is model-gorgeous. When Jolie meets her two charges, she finds them adorable and needy. But it's harder to hold onto her job than she thought with a hostile Mrs. James and her spoiled brother. Fitz becomes both the silver lining of her job and the man who just might convince her to stay in L.A.

In the novella A Place to Call Home, by Sarah M. Eden, Ada is the best realtor around. She prides herself in matching each client with the house that will fit all of their needs. So when Craig hires her to find him the perfect condo for him and his son, Ada is up for the challenge. What she may not be prepared for is her attraction to Craig, her attachment to his nine-year-old son, and her heart telling her it's okay to take another chance.
