Forced to rebuff the advances of the murderous pirate, Captain Galeo (The Shark), and fearful that her children will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, Lilyan forges an escape plan. Meanwhile, her husband, Nicholas, calls upon his skills as a captain in Brigadier General Francis Marion’s militia to devise a battle plan to save his family.

Besides his little boy, Jamie, one other thing in his life has turned out sweet and successful—his pastry business.

When her mother’s diagnosed with heart failure, Ginger has no choice but to return to the green grass of Ireland.

A gingerbread house contest at church to raise funds for the homeless has Ginger competing with Brad. Both are determined to win—Ginger the contest, Brad her heart.

THE BARISTA: MELBOURNE MEMORIES

Escaping his dangerous past, former British rock star Justin “The Phoenix” Taylor flees England. A marked man with nothing left but his guitar and his talent, Justin is desperate to start over yet still live off the grid.

Intrigued by the bearded stranger who looks vaguely familiar, Ella Anderson tries to discover his secrets by coaxing him with her elaborate latte art creations. And muffins.

When Justin’s past collides with their future, Ella must decide whether they have a future at all.

THE CHEF: A COURTSHIP FOR CLOVER

Top London chef Clover Blume has one chance to become better acquainted with Jonathan Spalding away from the mayhem of her busy restaurant where he frequently dines—the groomsman’s supposed to escort her at her sister’s New Year’s Eve wedding. But when business delays him, Clover begins to wonder whether she really wants to waste time with someone who’d rather make money than keep his word.

There’s one thing London Investment Banker Jonathan Spalding’s money hasn’t managed to buy: a woman to love—one worthy of his mother’s approval. But the auburn-haired beauty who was to partner with him at his best friend’s wedding—a wedding he stood to miss thanks to a glitch in a deal worth millions—might be finding a way into his heart.

What will it cost Jonathan to realize it profits him nothing to gain the world, yet lose his soul?

And the girl.

In Spite of Ourselves: A Murphy Brothers Story (2) (The Potter’s House Books (Two) Book 13)

In Spite of Ourselves

Amazon quote:

Jackson Murphy: family prankster, class clown… and now, smack in the middle of a Vegas-sized mess. All he’d wanted was to qualify for the Boston Marathon. After failing that goal, he slipped into a deep, sulking valley, only to emerge from it with a much bigger problem. He’s married. To a complete stranger! Forget making a world-class marathon so that his family will believe that (1) he’s capable of being grown up and serious on occasion and (2) he doesn’t need the ongoing pity about his brother and a certain ex-girlfriend.

Now? Now he has no idea what to do.

Mackenzie Murphy: independent woman and excellent student—but not a med student. Because those pesky MCATs were H-A-R-D. She doesn’t particularly mind that much, seeing as she’s never really wanted to be a doctor, but her mother will be…uh, displeased. Exceptionally. That’s nothing, however, compared to how Mother will respond if she finds out what else happened in Vegas.

Mackenzie wants out. Jackson wants a chance. Neither of them is prepared for what’s coming. Caught in the middle of a disaster that keeps getting bigger, they hardly dare ask: Can God take their monumental mistake and turn it into a beautiful life?
