|Falling for Trouble (Librarians in Love, Book 2)
ISBN: 1420141856 OCLC: 990336954 Zebra Shout 2017 The riot grrrl and the bookworm—just the pair to get the whole town talking… Liam Byrd loves Halikarnassus, New York. He loves its friendliness, its nosiness, the vibrant library at the center of it all. And now that Joanna Green is home, the whole town sizzles. A rebel like her stirs up excitement, action, desire—at least in Liam. Joanna never thought she’d have to come back to her dull, tiny fishbowl of a hometown ever again. She almost had a record deal for her all-girl rock band. She almost had it made in L.A. And then her deal went sour and her granny broke her leg . . . and now here she is, running into everybody’s favorite librarian every time she heads to a dive bar or catches up with old friends. He has charm, he has good taste in music—and the sight of him in running shorts is dangerously distracting. But when he loves her old town and she can’t wait to check out, their new romance is surely destined for the book drop...
|Home Sweet Home (Southern Comfort, Book 3)
ISBN: 1601831366 OCLC: 884363433 Kensington Trade New York : 2014 "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a ramshackle house must be in want of a handyman." Just because English professor Grace Williams is a woman whose "new" house is crumbling around her doesn't mean she needs an arrogant, condescending man's help, even if he does look gorgeous in faded jeans and a tool belt. What she needs is a working bathroom, not a ridiculous crush. Jake Burdette has no use for the university types who stumble around Willow Springs, with their noses in the air whenever they're not in a book. He may not be a scholar, but he's proud of the hard, honest work he does--even if he would appreciate a little more of it. He doesn't need Grace's pity, even if he does wish she wasn't so adorably sexy. They're all wrong for each other. But Grace's troublesome house seems to feel differently. . .

It's a place where love is always possible-and sweeter than ever the second time around . . . Mallory Thompson and Keith Carson are far from impressed with each other when she arrives at his family's horse farm, fleeing an abusive marriage. Mallory sees nothing but a gruff man who's as patronizing as her soon-to-be ex-husband, and Keith has no time for a city girl who's afraid of dogs. But the struggling Wild Rose is too small to allow anyone to keep their distance . . . As one by one, Mallory wins the hearts of his family, from his cranky father to his headstrong younger sister and three-legged dog, Keith finds himself more than a little attracted to her stubborn charm. And the longer Mallory stays, the more she realizes Keith is nothing like the overbearing bully she married-and the more she fantasizes about being in his strong, loving arms. Maybe some folks get a second chance to make a first impression after all . . .
