Looking for a quick weekend read?

Guest List, a novella by Julie C. Gardner, is free today through April 26 on Amazon!

The invitations for their ten-year high school reunion have arrived. But not everyone is looking forward to the event…

Corie cringes at the idea of going to the Conejo High School reunion. No longer the sweet and innocent girl her friends knew, she dreads facing them, knowing she’s hiding more secrets than she can count.

Fiery Scarlet, formerly Corie’s best friend, is now a high-powered attorney who has all but left the little town of Conejo Springs behind. She’s managed to block the memories for this long… but is it time to reconsider?

Renata’s self-confidence is still as low as it was in high school, despite continually working out and desperately trying not to worry about what people think of her. Will she have the courage to face the crowd of girls whose approval she never stopped seeking?

And sassy Kate is organizing the whole thing, even though she graduated in the class before them. What’s up her sleeve?

The high school reunion could be a smash hit or a total disaster. It all depends on who shows up.

Spring is here, and we decided it was time to give our romance titles a new wardrobe. Or so to speak. The Whole Man by CF Rose, a steamy sports romance, and Nashville by Heart by Tina Ann Forkner, a sweet romance, have new covers -- but the wonderful stories inside haven't changed a bit. Add them to your reading list this spring!



A second chance with my first love, sexy baseball player Jesse Walsh?

That’s not happening.

We made so many promises to each other over that one passionate weekend ten years ago. I was in college, and he was about to be called up to the Major Leagues. And then he walked out on me. Just like that.

I told myself: If I ever see him again – which I won’t – I’ll tell him off.

And now here he is, standing in front of me at the worst possible moment. Of course the memories come flooding back when I see those rock-hard abs, the brooding blue-green eyes… What’s he doing here in Orange County?

I should read him the riot act, but my body has something else in mind. It remembers his all too well. And by the way he’s looking at me, his remembers mine.

I slip away this time, but there’s a next. And a next. Suddenly he’s everywhere, undressing me with those penetrating eyes. When I give in, he leaves me wanting more after a steamy encounter on his living room floor.

The timing of this isn’t exactly ideal. I’m dealing with a new job and a bad situation with my creep of an ex-boyfriend. But Jesse seems serious this time, like he knows what he wants. Me.

And then I uncover a secret. A secret that could tear us apart forever…

Find The Whole Man on Amazon!



A happily ever after romance, Nashville style… 

Small-town girl Gillian Heart moved to Nashville to get a record deal, not end up on some playboy's arm. She knows she shouldn’t get too personal with music agent Will Adams, who has broken plenty of hearts in this city. But Will is different around her, and neither of them can deny the spark.

As the spark turns to love and Gillian’s career starts to take off, she believes her Nashville dream is finally coming true. Until Will makes a move that brings back memories of the father who abandoned her and puts all she’s built in jeopardy.

Can Gillian learn to trust Will—and herself—and let her country music dream take flight? Or will the comfort of life in her hometown pull her back?

Can Amy’s rocky start in Paris turn into a happy ever after?

Amy didn’t realize how stale her life was until she jetted off to Paris without telling a soul—not even her husband—and had the adventure of a lifetime. Now as she tries to establish herself in the City of Light, she finds that despite a fun (and quirky) group of friends and the ability to indulge in French pastries whenever she wants, reinventing her life is much harder than she imagined.

Then on Amy’s thirtieth birthday, two unexpected visitors leave her wondering if she will soon be saying au revoir to Paris and the new life she’s struggled to build. Her estranged husband, Will, shows up—but is he interested in reconciliation or separation? And a young woman who arrives on Amy’s doorstep unleashes chaos that could push Amy out into the street.

As Amy’s Parisian dream starts to fall apart, she must decide: return to the stability of Will and Phoenix (if that’s even still an option) or forge her way forward in Paris? Amid secrets and surprises, set in enchanting gardens, cozy cafés, and glittering Parisian streets, Amy must choose between two very different worlds. And each has a claim on her heart.

Praise for Paris Ever After:

Heartwarming and full of colorful characters, the surprise-filled narrative is smart, wry and poignant. You won't want to put it down. Five stars!
