Elizabeth has two new releases out this week, and the first one is Celeste Wells’ The Touch of a Navy SEAL, a military romance novella, now available at Audible!
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?
Elizabeth’s latest release is Looking For a Hero, which contains two short novels by bestselling author Debbie Macomber. This audiobook was produced by BeeAudio for Harper Collins/Harlequin, and is now available at Audible!
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!
Elizabeth’s latest new release is Amelia Judd’s A Venture of the Heart, the first book in the Silver Bay romance series, now available at Audible!
Love is a risky venture in Amelia Judd’s award-winning romance
“Hello, Pax. It’s good to see you again.”
And with those frigid words, karma kicked his ass and blew his dreams into a million tiny fragments.
Paxton Bennett walked away from a privileged upbringing to devote his life to La Vida de Ensueño, the socially responsible luxury resort he manages in Costa Rica. No way will Pax let a hotel chain swallow up La Vida and turn it into another lifeless clone. All he needs is a loan so he can match a buy-out offer. Unfortunately, every damn bank keeps saying no. He has one last hope – an on-site visit from a loan officer that he’s sure he can impress….
Banker Sage Somerset doesn’t want to see Pax Bennett across a busy coffee shop, let alone spend a week at a tropical resort with him. After their cringe-worthy last encounter, just hearing his name makes her blush or curse. Plus, there are snakes in Costa Rica. A lot of snakes! Determined to remain professional on her unwelcome assignment, Sage hopes she can survive a week in Pax’s world….
But a quirky staff, meddlesome family, and the night-time visit of a tiny green gecko soon threaten to turn business into pleasure. Will Pax and Sage fight their troublesome chemistry? Or will they take a chance on the biggest venture of all – each other?
Elizabeth’s recording of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey, produced by Essential Audiobooks, is now available at Audible! This brand-new production of Austen’s earliest completed novel joins Elizabeth’s best-selling version of Persuasion, released by Essential Audio earlier this year.
Jane Austen’s first novel, Northanger Abbey, published posthumously in 1818, tells the story of Catherine Morland and her dangerously sweet nature, innocence, and sometime self-delusion.
Though Austen’s fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature. The satirical Northanger Abbey pokes fun at the Gothic novel while earnestly emphasizing caution to the female sex.
Elizabeth’s latest release is Lady Grace, part of the “Ladies of Disgrace” series by romance writer Vicki Hopkins. This historical novel, set during World War I, is now available at Audible.
As a young woman of 21, Grace did not think it unusual to marry a man of 40. Although she wed a kind and respectful individual, something remained absent from their relationship. Before she could fully understand her growing despondency and restless emotions, England declared war on Germany. Like a jigsaw puzzle turned upside down, the pieces of Grace’s life scatter in different directions. When her husband leaves for France to fight for his king and country, Grace is left behind to face years of loneliness, temptation, and loss. After the declaration of peace, the picture puzzle of her life is reassembled, but paints a vastly different scene than it did before.
Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of Rachelle Ayala’s A Wedding for Christmas, the final volume in the Veteran’s Christmas series. The first two novels – A Father for Christmas and A Pet for Christmas – are already available at Audible.
Kelly Kennedy and Tyler Manning are planning a Christmas wedding, and her six-year-old daughter, Bree, is worried about being the perfect flower girl. Complications arise when Tyler gets reacquainted with a female soldier he rescued back in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Kelly gets an urgent message from the man who fathered Bree, asking for a big favor.
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?
Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of Rachelle Ayala’s A Pet For Christmas, the second book in the Veteran’s Christmas series, now available at Audible! The first book, A Father For Christmas, was released last spring, and the final installment, A Wedding For Christmas, should be out soon. These are wonderful and heartwarming books, perfect for any time of the year.
Kelly Kennedy thought her life was finally on track. Engaged to the man of her dreams and with a baby on the way, she reassures her five-year-old daughter Bree, that the father she picked for Christmas still loves her.
Unfortunately, war veteran Tyler Manning has been away most of the year. Recovering from PTSD isn’t easy. Rather than worry Kelly, Tyler spends his time traveling to Afghanistan to work at a children’s charity he founded.
Kelly decides to distract Bree with promises of a pet for Christmas. When Tyler is taken hostage by terrorists, she finds it hard to convince Bree that they will truly be a family in time for Christmas.
A Pet for Christmas is a sequel to A Father for Christmas. While it can be listened to as a standalone, you’ll get more of the relationship aspect between Kelly, Tyler, and Bree by listening to A Father for Christmas first.
