« À l’instant où je l’ai vu, le sol s’est ouvert sous mes pieds, pour une chute sans fin. »
L’agent de police Silas Sloane connaît tout le monde à O’Leary, dans l’État de New York. Il a gagné l’affection et le respect des habitants, même si vivre dans ce microcosme est parfois pénible. S’il excelle dans son boulot, il y a une seule chose dans laquelle il n’est pas bon : l’engagement.
Jusqu’à ce qu’il rencontre Everett.
Everett Maior, jeune veuf, vient d’emménager contre son gré. Il n’a jamais voulu devenir le tuteur légal de son grand-père et finir dans ce trou perdu. Désobligeant et superstitieux, il est très doué pour garder les gens à distance.
Jusqu’à ce qu’il pose les yeux sur Silas.
Parviendront-ils à bâtir un futur ensemble alors que les fantômes du passé font tout pour les séparer ?

« Une magnifique histoire d’amour, mais plus important encore, un message très beau et extrêmement important sur comment faire son deuil et continuer à avancer, célébrer la vie en général ainsi que la vie de ceux qui nous ont quittés, plutôt que s’appesantir sur leur mort. » - Cintia, Goodreads
« Un véritable joyau. » - Lily, Goodreads
Coup de foudre improbable entre un pâtissier et un ex-Navy SEAL.
Caelan James aurait dû le savoir. Se fier à une application pour organiser un blind date était une très mauvaise idée. Rien dans la vie n’est jamais « parfait » et encore moins les hommes, surtout ceux dans la région d’O’Leary dans l’État de New York.
Pourtant, quand un SEAL de l’US Navy apparaît dans sa boulangerie, Cal se dit que la vie a peut-être enfin décidé de lui pâtisser un miracle.
L’osmose est immédiate, dévorante et tout sauf ennuyante.
Mais ce rendez-vous si parfait pourrait-il durer plus qu’une nuit ?

« Que se passe-t-il quand un rouquin au tempérament de feu tient tête à un ancien militaire ? Des étincelles, ça, c’est certain. » - T.L. Travis, Goodreads
Former Marine Percy “Champ” Champion has never encountered a problem he can’t handle. Flying bullets? Daring jungle rescues? Building Champion Security from the ground up? Making people seriously regret using his hated first name? No problem. He’s gotten the job done without a hitch each and every time.
But it turns out there are some situations Champ can’t handle alone, like:
• Going undercover as a wedding planner to retrieve some missing cartel data in time to avert an international crisis.
• Keeping his jerk of an ex from threatening his business.
• Preventing Quinn Taffet, Licking Thicket’s gorgeous, charming new wedding planner—and Champ’s fake fiancé—from getting into danger… or from getting the wrong idea about their relationship.
• Fighting the pull that lands him in Quinn’s bed night after night, despite his very best intentions.
• Stopping the pun-happy matchmakers of the Thicket from destroying the sane, well-ordered life he’s built for himself.
• And, most troubling of all, protecting his traitorous heart from all the romance in the air.
In short, Champ needs an extraction plan ASAP before he finds himself well and truly… hitched.
Renowned cardiologist Carter Rogers is used to having things under control. His life, his prestigious reputation, his career, his future.
Things he can’t control this time around:
• His meddling grandfather
• His annoying gamer cousin
• Buggy South American jungles
• Being the meat in a feuding cartel sandwich
• Getting kidnapped by a monologuing drug lord
•Falling for his very hot, very mouthy ex-Special Forces bodyguard
In short, Carter’s peaceful, well-planned life has been… hijacked.
I’m about to sing you the saddest song in the universe, and it’s called “The Man of My Dreams Married My Sister.”
It’s kinda my theme song. And trust me when I tell you, it’s heavy on the violins.
Because the man in question? He’s not just any guy, he’s Rafe freakin’ Goodman.
My former best friend.
The boy who made my summers on Whispering Key magical. The guy who inspired every love song that led to the chart-topping music career I have today. The man I always sort of figured would wait for me, while I pursued my dreams and finally found a way to tell the world I was gay…
But instead of waiting, he married Aimee.
Rafe and Aimee’s marriage has been over for a while now, but it doesn’t really matter. He doesn’t love me even though I feel like I’ll love him until the day I die. Trying to be “just friends” would tear me apart.
We’re a broken chord. A blue note. Hopelessly out of tune.
Or so I thought.
But when circumstances throw us back together on a crazy cross-country road trip, suddenly all kinds of secrets come to light that make it seem like maybe our show’s not over yet.
If I want a life with the man of my dreams, though, I’ll have to be honest--with Rafe and the rest of the world, too--and find the courage to write us a new song.
One that’s exactly like us: perfectly imperfect… and a little off key.
Tucker Wright’s Clues for Life:
What’s a 4-letter word for an utterly oblivious, totally commitment-phobic, heartbreakingly gorgeous man with a pet pig named Bernadette?
That’d be D-U-N-N, as in Dunn Johnson, my very best pal and fishing buddy since I moved to Licking Thicket.
What’s a 6-letter word for a nerdy, crossword-loving town doctor who’s doomed to be hopelessly, thoroughly, irrevocably, in love with that straight best friend for the rest of his born days?
That’s T-U-C-K-E-R, as in me.
But when I agree to let Dunn be my 24/7 dating coach, and he decides to get our whole nosy town in on the act, there’s only one 5-letter word to describe the pair of us.
The job at Sunday Orchard was supposed to be temporary.
A chance to gain some work experience. To have some fun. To get away from my overprotective brothers. To maybe, possibly encounter some lumberjacks in their natural habitat before moving on to the dream career that awaited me in the city.
I had not expected to be welcomed into a family of gorgeous and weirdly efficient lumberjack-types myself. Or to find a purpose in the tiny Vermont town whose claim to fame seemed to be apple-based products and copious amounts of charm.
And I most definitely hadn’t expected to fall for Knox Sunday, my grumpy, burly, fifteen-years-older, reluctant roommate, with his infuriating lectures, his hot-as-fire body, his superior attitude, his snarky humor, and his stealth cuddles.
Now I find myself making excuses to delay my big dreams… just for a little while.
But Knox has unfulfilled dreams of his own. A career he walked away from. A big city life in Boston he left behind when he returned to his hometown to help his family. He claims he’s not looking for anything permanent, and I’ve never been one to put down roots.
My big life is waiting for me somewhere other than Little Pippin Hollow. So why does it feel like I’ve finally found the home of my heart?
And how can I get Knox Sunday to… pick me?
For ten years, I dreamed of coming back to O’Leary to open my own bar. Safe to say the reality hasn’t lived up to my expectations. Even though the town’s the same as it ever was -- same beautiful scenery, same wonderful, ridiculous residents -- it’s hard to feel welcome when your first love and childhood best friend makes it clear you’re public enemy number one. And then, oh yeah, when your bar burns to the ground and you’re stuck begging for a place to stay.
But just when I’m ready to give up on the dream entirely, Jamie and I are thrown together in a blizzard and everything changes. One single, scorching night is enough to prove the spark between us never really died, and suddenly I’m dreaming a new dream -- one where Jamie lets go of the past and we build something entirely new… together.
Parrish Partridge’s True Facts:
There’s nothing hotter than a tall, gruff, bewildered, tattooed mountain of a man cuddling a sweet, orphaned baby, so you can tell yourself that you’ll resist him...
But that’s a lie.
And when that man asks you to do him a favor and pretend to be his very temporary, very fake fiance to help him get custody of that adorable baby, you can pretend you know better than to say yes…
But that’s a lie, too.
And when you actually get to know your kind, strong, pullet-loving prince of a fiance, and all his crazy, lovable, meddling neighbors, you can tell yourself you’re not really falling for Diesel Church and the town of Licking Thicket…
But that might be the biggest lie of all.

# 0.5 - The Date
#1 - The Fall
# 2 - The Gift
#2.5 - The Note
#3 - The Secret
The Date - Caelan James should've known better than to let a dating app set him up on a blind date. Nothing in life was guaranteed-perfect, especially not guys, and most definitely not guys in the immediate vicinity of tiny O'Leary, New York. But then Navy SEAL Ash Martin walked into Cal's bakery, and made him wonder if fate might have cooked up something sweet for him after all.
The Fall - Police officer Silas Sloane is known and respected by every resident of O’Leary, New York... and the lack of privacy is grating on him. It's impossible to keep a secret in a small town... Or is it? Because when snarky widower Everett Maior arrives in town to take care of his ailing grandfather, they find there's more than meets the eye in this idyllic town, and ghosts from the past threaten the future Si and Everett want to build together.
The Gift - Daniel Michaelson came to O'Leary after a series of professional failures expecting a fresh start, a quiet life, and total anonymity. What he did not expect was to fall in love with his very hot, very adorable, very male best friend Julian... or to wind up playing the role of Jules's boyfriend in front of the whole meddlesome town. Suddenly, hiding out in his cabin isn't nearly as easy or as appealing. But when life offers him a chance at redemption, will he choose the path that leads him back to his caree... or the one where he ends up in Julian's arms for good?
The Note - Tyler was one of the lucky ones. He found his soulmate back in high school, when his next door neighbor wrote him a love note that changed his life -- a love note that promised me "always."
But apparently "always" ain't all it's cracked up to be, because a mere eight years later, Tyler is planning his soulmate's dream wedding -- the most romantic Valentine's Day wedding in O'Leary's history. The only problem is, he's not marrying Tyler.
The Secret - When Micah Bloom offers Constantine Ross a job, he thinks it'll be a chance to teach his cocky, provoking young business rival a lesson in respect. Instead, he finds that the more time they spend together, the more he genuinely likes Con, the more he likes Con, the harder it is to keep their relationship platonic, and the deeper their feelings grow, the harder it becomes to keep their starcrossed relationship a secret.
