When Elisabeth’s husband dies, leaving her penniless and with child, she must throw off her blacks and reenter London society to find a suitor. But how can she hope to compete with a fresh batch of debutantes, especially when one is none other than her too-charming sister Charlotte?
With a bat of her ridiculously long lashes, Charlotte has gentlemen flocking to her like ants to honey, though she would rather not be consumed, thank you very much. In fact, if gentlemen could just keep their pincers to themselves, she would be much obliged. Charlotte yearns for someone who will admire her for something more than the pretty turn of her ankles, but how can she find something as monumental as love within the jumbled conversations of a ballroom?
Things only grow more complicated as Elisabeth and Charlotte find themselves pining for each other’s suitors. Can they untangle themselves from this quagmire of confusion and follow their hearts when it means putting their livelihood, reputation, and relationship with one another at risk?

LORD EDMUND’S DILEMMA by Caroline Warfield
Lucy Ashcroft doesn’t share her stepmother’s belief that she might find a husband during her sojourn in Bath, but she does enjoy a respite from a household full of half-siblings and a younger sister preparing for her London Season, something Lucy can’t even dream about. In Bath, she enjoys the company of the elderly ladies in her aunt’s circle, and happy to be out from under her stepmother’s watchful and speculating eye. But when Lucy meets Lord Edmund Parker, all of her expectations for a quiet, unassuming holiday suddenly change.
THE ART OF KISSING IN THE PARK by Jaima Fixsen
Caroline Trenholme is not pleased with Bath, the fussy, antiquated resort of the shabby-genteel. She ought to be in London, finding a man—not here, coddling her irrational grandmother. In the park, she crosses paths (literally—this is Bath, after all) with a nameless, mannerless rogue, intent on stealing a kiss. As if his proposition weren’t insult enough, even her dog seems to like the man better. It's impossible! Especially once she suspects she might like him too…

Marrying for love holds no appeal for Rozzy Pender. As she’s seen with her parents, giving someone her heart only means giving them the power to hurt her. Besides, she can only inherit the ranch she loves if she marries—which means losing it to her husband anyway. So she comes up with a plan. She won’t marry Rafe, the man she loves, but rather the furthest thing from a rancher she can find—a gentleman from Denver. Conveniently, he’s also the last person she can ever have feelings for, which makes him perfectly safe.
Rafe Adams has spent his life at Rozzy’s side, planning for the happily-ever-after that Rozzy can’t seem to see. All he wants is for them to ride the range together on the land she loves. But when she helps him rescue a litter of puppies in his barn overnight and puts both their reputations in jeopardy, Rozzy’s mother forces him to propose before he’s ready, exposing Rozzy’s plot.
Can Rozzy choose between her beloved ranch and the man who holds her fragile heart?

Summer Graham’s life is just how she likes it—surrounded by people in both her personal life and in her work life as an admissions recruiter at a university. Want to go on an adventure? She’s your gal. Want a serious relationship? She can probably introduce you to someone who does, but it’s not her.
Brock McMillan spends his time striving for perfection, being a good older brother, and enjoying his job helping students get college scholarships. Oh, and disagreeing with Summer on pretty much everything that goes on in the office.
Not that it’s purposeful. Their ideas are just kind of like their office spaces—Brock’s is minimalist and logical (but Summer will tell you it’s where ideas go to die) and Summer’s is lively, fun, and creative (but Brock will tell you it’s chaotic).
They’re teamed up to run Aquamoose Tracks together—the big overnight event put on by the Welcome Center at the university where they both work. Both think they know how it will all turn out, but they're both in for a few surprises.
And they definitely never expect to fall in love.
