Release Date: October, 20th

Blurb:

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.

Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling—a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on.

Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life.

Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.

Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.

Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards—and hard won love—are Bountiful.

Bountiful (True North #4)
Sarina Bowen
Data de lançamento: 20 de Outubro

Sinopse:

Sem sobrenomes. Sem histórias de vida. Estas eram as regras.

Era uma vez um turista arrogante, com cabelo cor de cobre que entrou no bar de Zara.
E mesmo que ela soubesse bem, Zara se entregou a uma cura para o blues da cidade pequena.
Era pra ser um casinho sem compromisso, apenas algumas semanas antes dele voltar para a sua vida, e ela continuar na dela.

Até que uma gravidez acidental mudou a sua vida.

Dois anos depois, ela está em paz com a ideia que Dave Sem-Sobrenome nunca será encontrado.
Até que em uma dia de verão em que ele entra na cafeteria dela, afetando-a com o mesmo sorriso quente que sempre a deixa sem defesas.

Dave Bringer nunca esqueceu o intenso mês que ele passou com a durona Zara.
Suas noites juntos foram as primeiras intimidades que ele havia experimentado.
Mas a descoberta de sua filha é o choque de sua vida, e seu passado feio põe ele fora do alcance de relacionamentos e família.

Ou não põe? O lado interiorano de Vermont sempre teve um maneira de cuidar até das almas mais torturadas.
Os campos e os pomares – e um amor verdadeiro – são generosos.

When It’s Real
Erin Watt
Data de Lançamento, em inglês: 30 de Maio

Sinopse:

Da dupla de autoras # 1 do New York Times Erin Watt, vem aí um conto contemporâneo e viciante de uma estrela do rock adolescente com a necessidade de mudar sua imagem e uma menina adolescente contratada para ser sua namorada falsa.

Conheça Oakley Ford, uma celebridade entre as adolescentes, uma estrela pop, criança prodígio entre as estrelas famosas de cinema, irresistível com milhões de fãs… e um total encrenqueiro. Na superfície ele tem tudo, mas com sua vida familiar se desintegrando, sua música de repente ficando sem graça e os tablóides fazendo a festa sobre suas façanhas ultrajantes, a equipe de Oakley decide que é hora de uma intervenção. O resultado: uma mudança de imagem, completa, com uma namorada falsa, destinada a mostrar ao mundo que ele mudou e está responsável.

Vaughn Bennett, uma adolescente comum de 17 anos, irmã dedicada, trabalha meio turno como garçonete, a definição de “normal”. Sob circunstâncias normais ela nunca teria aceitado esta farsa, mas com sua família necessitada de dinheiro, ela não tem muita escolha. E pelo dinheiro que a equipe de Oakley está pagando, ela calcula que ela pode tolerar festas de Hollywood e uma equipe de publicistas observando cada movimento dela. E daí se ela acha que Oakley é um idiota superficial e egocêntrico? Não é como se eles fossem se apaixonar um pelo outro na vida real … certo?

When It’s Real
Erin Watt
Release: May, 30th 

Blurb:
From #1 New York Times bestselling author duo Erin Watt comes the addictive contemporary tale of a teen rock star in need of an image makeover and the teen girl hired to be his fake girlfriend.

Meet Oakley Ford-teen celebrity, renowned pop star, child of famous movie stars, hottie with millions of fangirls… and restless troublemaker. On the surface he has it all, but with his home life disintegrating, his music well suddenly running dry, and the tabloids having a field day over his outrageous exploits, Oakley’s team decides it’s time for an intervention. The result: an image overhaul, complete with a fake girlfriend meant to show the world he’s settled down.

Enter seventeen-year-old Vaughn Bennett-devoted sister, part-time waitress, the definition of “normal.” Under ordinary circumstances she’d never have taken this gig, but with her family strapped for cash, she doesn’t have much of a choice. And for the money Oakley’s team is paying her, she figures she can put up with outlandish Hollywood parties and a team of publicists watching her every move. So what if she thinks Oakley’s a shallow, self-centered jerk? It’s not like they’re going to fall for each other in real life…right?

Most people called it a cult. But for twenty years, Josh & Caleb called it home.

In Paradise, there is no television. No fast food. Just long hours of farm work and prayer on a dusty Wyoming ranch, and nights in a crowded bunkhouse. The boys of the Compound are kept far from the sinners’ world.

But Joshua doesn’t need temptation to sin. His whole life, he’s wanted his best friend, Caleb. By day they work side by side. Only when Josh closes his eyes at night can they be together the way he craves.

It can never be. And his survival depends on keeping his terrible desires secret.

Caleb has always protected Josh against the worst of the bullying at the Compound. But he has secrets of his own, and a plan to get away — until it all backfires.

Josh finds himself homeless in a world that doesn’t want him. Can Caleb find him in time? And will they find a place of safety, where he can admit to Josh how he really feels?

Warning: Contains a hot male/male romance, copious instances of taking the Lord’s name in vain, and love against the kitchen counter. This book was previously released under the title: In Front of God & Everyone. Continue lendo

*ARC gentilmente cedido em troca de uma resenha honesta

Sinopse:

Annalia DelValle amou Preston Sawyer por toda sua vida. A filha de um pobre trabalhador agrícola imigrante, ela cresceu como um pária em uma minúscula cabana , em Central Valle na Califórnia. Mas seu coração encontrou liberdade na terra, nos espaços abertos de Fazenda Sawyer e nos garotos que eram seus únicos amigos.

Uma noite que desencadeou uma cadeia de eventos que irão alterar suas vidas para sempre.

Agora Annalia está de volta à cidade, depois de desaparecer sem rastro durante seis longos meses. Determinada a recuperar seu coração, sua vida e o bebê que ela deixou para trás – o filho que foi criado em um momento de luxúria, amor e anseio reprimidos.

Preston’s Honor
Mia Sheridan
Expected publication: february, 19th, 2017

*ARC Generously Provided by Author for a honest review.

Blurb:

There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.

Annalia Del Valle has loved Preston Sawyer all her life. The daughter of an impoverished migrant farmworker, she grew up as an outcast in what was no more than a tiny, cooped up shack in California’s Central Valley. But her heart found freedom in the land, in the wide-open spaces of Sawyer Farm, and in the boys who were her only friends.

Preston has yearned for Annalia since he was a boy. But a sense of honor kept him from pursuing her until he’s unable to hold back any longer and their worlds—and bodies—collide one hot summer night. A night that sets off a chain of events that will alter their lives forever.

Now Annalia is back in town after disappearing without a trace for six long months. Determined to reclaim her heart, her life, and the baby she left behind—the son who was created in a moment of lust and love and pent-up yearning.

Preston has survived grief, a ravaging drought, and the despair of heartache, but he’s not sure he can survive Annalia again. And he might be unwilling to try. Will pride and bitterness keep him from the one thing he’s always longed for?

How do you heal what is irreparably broken? How do you forgive that which is unforgivable? How do you discover that real honor comes not from circumstance, but from the place deep in our hearts where truth resides? And how do you move beyond the wounds of the past to discover that some loves are as solid as the ground beneath your feet, and as enduring as the earth itself?

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY GEMINI. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Blurb:

Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.

Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.

But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?

Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear
