A fun and sexy stand-alone Silver Bay novel by award-winning author Amelia Judd.
Single mom Claire Bennett needs to find a boyfriend. Fast. Problem is, she doesn’t have the time or desire (or maybe even the ability) to manage a relationship right now. Determined to avoid her pending public humiliation, Claire resorts to hiring a fake boyfriend.
Though unable to deny her troublesome attraction for her new faux beau, Claire’s confident her plan will work as long as she keeps her feet firmly planted on the ground. Never again will she get swept away in a whirlwind romance that leaves her dizzy, flat on her butt, and full of regret when it ends.
Having played many positions in his career, retired soccer star Ethan DuBois happily agrees to take on the role of pretend boyfriend. After all, spending two months with the beautiful, intelligent, and intriguingly independent Claire promises to be an amusing distraction from the real – and infinitely more frustrating – reason he’s back in Silver Bay.
But being with Claire soon makes Ethan realize he wants her as his partner for more than a short-term pretense. Will the clock run out before Ethan convinces Claire that life is always better when you’re part of a team?
When her fiance, Danny, died in Afghanistan, Sarah Briggs felt as if she never wanted to get romantically involved with anyone again. But when she found a civilian job at the same naval base where her admiral uncle was stationed, she did not count on meeting Matthew Brody, a Navy SEAL. Though attracted to him, Sarah felt she just could not trust her heart again to a man at risk. Matthew knew it, too. Would their passion be strong enough to overcome their fears?

Two classic stories of finding love where you least expect it!
As far as Nash Davenport’s concerned, marriage isn’t shelter from the storm – it is the storm. He’s a divorce attorney, himself divorced, who believes no married couple can live up to their wedding vows. Savannah Charles, however, believes in the value – and the values – of marriage. She’s a wedding planner who finds herself saying yes when Nash unexpectedly proposes. Even though it’s strictly a business proposal….
Would-be romance writer Bailey York has already failed twice at love. She thinks men are wonderful to read and write about, but that’s it. Which is probably why she has such difficulty creating a hero for her novel. What she needs is a real-life example. She finds one in Parker Davidson – he’s everything a hero should be. Compellingly attractive. Forceful and determined, yet capable of tenderness. A man of substance. Parker is perfect as Bailey’s inspiration – but he wants to be the hero in her life, not just in her book!

With their Christmas wedding looming, Kelly and Tyler must tie up all loose ends while Bree risks her life to do a good deed before Santa’s sleigh hits their roof. Will love, faith, and a Christmas miracle be enough to keep their family together?
