The Women of Willow Bay is a new series for romantics in their prime from USA Today bestselling author, Nan Reinhardt and Fine Wine Romances. In our youth-crazed society, it’s easy to forget that romance is not the exclusive property of twenty- or even thirty-somethings. The Women of Willow Bay series presents love stories for grown-ups, because love can happen to anyone at any age, women only grow more interesting, and you’re never too old for a little sexy romance.
She thought she’d never feel safe again. She was wrong.
When Sarah Bennett’s abusive ex hunts her down in Chicago, her friends spirit her away to Willow Bay, where she hopes to begin again with a different identity. But terror keeps her holed up, unable to start her new life.
Deputy sheriff Tony Reynard never expected to be staring down the barrel of a gun when he enters Sarah’s apartment to finish up some handyman work, but that’s how the fiery little redhead greets him, and he’s beyond intrigued.
After an intervention by her loving friends, Sarah becomes involved in a project to turn an old mansion into a battered women’s shelter. The women work together to renovate the house, along with the help of the townspeople and the delectably handsome Tony, who is a true renaissance man. Tony vows to bring Sarah back to life and love, but knows he needs to move slowly to win her heart.
When her ex tracks her down once more, Sarah must find the courage to protect her friends and her new love from his wrath.
The Summer of Second Chances
It’s never too late to start over…
When Sophie Russo inherits two lakeside cottages in Willow Bay, Michigan, she thinks she can start over with a peaceful, quiet summer.
Boy, was she wrong.
First, there’s Henry Dugan. The nerdy genius behind the GeekSpeak publishing empire has rented Sophie’s second cottage so he can write his novel, and the instant attraction catches them both off guard. He’s fresh off a brutal divorce, and Sophie’s still grieving her beloved Papa Leo, so this is no time to start a relationship, but a casual summer fling might be an option…
Then Sophie’s long-lost mother barrels onto the scene and opens up a long-buried mystery involving Depression-era mobsters and a missing cache of gold coins worth millions that some present-day hoodlums would like to get their hands on.
Suddenly, Sophie’s quiet summer becomes a dangerous dance with her grandfather’s dark past. With Henry at her side–and in her bed–Sophie needs to find a way to make peace with the past and look toward the future… assuming she lives that long.
