Three Days to Choose by Celeste Joy

Claire Lindner longs to be the kind of hard-nosed journalist who covers the stories that make a difference. The stories that demand justice. The stories that put the bad guys away for good. But Claire has never been able to break into the male-dominated newsroom. Instead, she writes a popular gossip to pay the bills, and all that misogyny and slimy gossip has taught her to never trust men. Claire has a secret though...at night she dreams of a kind, honorable, handsome gray-eyed man who wears funny, old-fashioned clothes.

Winemaker Beckett St. Jude has waited years for the woman of his dreams. When Claire is at the brink of death, he pulls her into his world – Mag Mell. Unfortunately, their first meeting is a disaster – Claire can’t stand him and she doesn’t trust him. On top of that, someone is working behind the scenes to bankrupt him and take over his family winery. How can he figure out who’s trying to ruin him, and more importantly, how does he court a woman who will barely talk to him?

Claire and Beckett have three days to build a friendship, three days to save the winery, and three days to expose the corruption that has become a cancer in Mag Mell. Claire though has an even bigger problem: dream career or dream lover? She has Three Days to Choose.

Fortune and Misfortune by Ney Mitch

It’s a fact, universally accepted,
that a gentleman and a lady,
when on the road to marriage and true
happiness, by their will or not, find themselves to be the center of attention
and news—both the good and the bad.

Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet are on the road to love and domestic tranquility. Yet of course, there must be something that bars the way of the happy couple, and that is Lady Catherine De Bourgh. Bitter at her nephew’s behavior to Anne, Lady Catherine is insistent on making Darcy remain loyal to the oath that he made. Wishing to make peace with her before he continues his nuptials, Darcy, along with the help of Mr. Bingley and Colonel Fitzwilliam, began to move forward with a plan to solve the dilemma.

However, even if they achieve peace with Lady Catherine, there is more of the Darcy family to encounter. In the state of Pennsylvania, Mr. Darcy’s American cousins are looking to reconnect with their English relatives. They invite Mr. Darcy and his new bride to Philadelphia, for a holiday. In hopes of gaining an ally to strengthen Elizabeth’s introduction into the family, they all journey to the United States, allowing Jane, Kitty, Mr. Bingley and Georgiana to journey with them. However, what first begins as a pleasant journey, leads to much emotional and political tension.

Follow the second part of ‘Pride, Prejudice, and New Adventures’, where we see that it’s not simply about obtaining a happily ever after, but finding what happens after it!

Aftermath by L.L. Brooks

Aftermath by L. L. Brooks

I survived, physically. Leaving five bodies behind, I escaped the desert. With three more dead before it was over, Bell one of them, they were all dead. The other survivor didn’t matter. Bunny’s mind was gone. She’d never be able to tell what I’d done. I didn’t need any reminders of those days of terror, not of what I’d done, or the deaths I caused, not with the nightmares and blackouts in the aftermath.

Pratters, the only one who suspected the truth, used my fear of exposure against me. Months after I thought it was all over, he showed up with a brain damaged, crippled man. Dumping Michael on me, he told me I was the only one he could trust that those he worked with wouldn’t suspect. Making me the one to hide and help Michael, Pratters swore he’d altered records. No one would know where Michael had gone, both of us would be safe. None of the promises eased the new fears. What of Michael? Oh, my God, I wanted him. Did that make me the whore Bell called me?

Katie Gills knows how to compartmentalize. She has a plan in place and although she has physical needs, those can be met by a simple set of rules created, in her mind, to save her from the ultimate distraction. Love.

Bell was ugly, dirty, and mean. If he had left me alone, the others would never have known I was there. I was terrified of him, yet more terrified of not being beside him.

He hurt me a little, to save me from worse, or so he claimed. I responded to him, telling myself I had to, not that he made me hot and wanting.
