LOVE WON'T WAIT by Lori Foster

Not one for long term entanglements, it has been unusual for Brick Carlisle to be so taken with one and the same girl for this long. But the new waitress at his favorite diner is something special and if the stories are to be believed, she is about as innocent as the driven snow. 

Needing a change of scenery after her mother's passing, Merrily Loveland recently moved into a duplex with her animals and started work at the diner while finishing her studies. After serving him lunch for about a month, she finally works up the courage to ask the hot hardware store manager for some advice.

Seeing his opening, Brick grabs the opportunity to, quite literally, get a foot in the door with Merrily and noting the returned interest in him, it doesn't take much to convince her to try him on for size!


A sweet, sexy short, where the hunky and popular town native falls head over heels for the innocent and shy newcomer!



Coming back to Crescent Cove, ten years after the loss of her first love there, was more of a homecoming than Meg Alexander had expected. Still the memories were bittersweet. Bumping into a very familiar canine and his very handsome owner a bit of a surprise.
Returning to the familiar vacation spot of his youth, was something Caleb McCall had thought about for quite some time, and running into Meg part of his plans. She barely remembers him, but he hasn't forgotten one thing about her, and is determined to find out everything.
Past hurt has made Meg resistant to the possibility of romantic entanglements, but Caleb's calm and convincing zest for life has her wavering.....
A compelling, seductive and hopeful story of letting go and allowing life back in.



Two years ago, Eve Hill's outlook on life took a dramatic dive. Just as she had finally found a professional future she could believe in, her heart was shredded and she had never quite recovered from the blow.  When, under pressure from her friends, Eve finally decides to go out again, what are the odds she finds the cause of her heartbreak right on her doorstep?
Saddled with obligations he needed to honour, Brian Stewart knew he had hurt Eve when he left town two years ago. Free of responsibilities but with Eve still very much on his mind and in his heart, he is back. To stay, if she'll have him. 
Even though Eve's feelings still run deep, she drew the short end of the stick once before and that still hurts today. She is not eager to forgive or likely to forget. The question is, what hurts more??
Gripping, sultry and poignant novella in which a heartbroken woman tries to find courage to say yes to her love......again. 


✨A striking and steamy collection by an impressive trio of authors✨
