    Chasing a Starr – Delancey Stewart
    Chasing a Starr - Cover
    When a city girl comes up against a cowboy, some dust is bound to fly…

    Reine Halverson was 100% city girl – shiny, polished, and put together. A branding specialist for a huge San Francisco firm, she’d built herself from the ground up, covering her country roots with the gleam and glamour of city life.

    She might’ve been from somewhere else, but the city was her salvation. That life was behind her.

    Will Starr was a cowboy, through and through. His mother had tried to make him something else, but a combat tour in Afghanistan has a way of making a man see what he’s made of. And Will knew he was made up of Northern California grapevines, a hundred-year old farmhouse, and cattle land that had been in his family for generations.

    When Reine arrives at Starr Ranch Winery as part of the big city firm’s investment deal set up to save the family land, Will’s convinced she’s the last thing any of them need. But when she starts to find her way beneath his carefully built armor, he realizes there’s more at stake than the business.

    Reine might just walk away with what little remains of his heart.

    Three great weekend reads this New Release Friday

    6/29/2018

    New Release Friday
    A Wave of Love by Monica Donnelly
    A Wave of Love - Cover
    Fintan Doherty was back.

    Polly had spent a decade avoiding the man who’d broken her heart as a teenager but now he was back in town and she couldn’t seem to escape him.

    Fin wanted to make amends, not for leaving but for the way he left. He’d gone to pursue a career as an World Champion Surfer, that was his dream and he’d fulfilled it. He didn’t regret going but he did regret that his leaving had broken Polly’s heart.

    Polly hated that Fin was still the one man she’d ever loved. She’d tried to move on and now ran a successful vineyard but for some reason no one else had touched her like Fin, which meant here she was nearly thirty and still a virgin.

    If Fin wanted her forgiveness all he had to do was commit to some no strings attached sex while he was in town. Polly was certain it was a win-win for everyone.

    The only problem was Fin wasn’t planning on leave and he definitely wasn’t planning on kissing Polly good-bye again.

    This is the second book in the Henley’s Bluff series and can be read as a stand-alone novel

    While on a working holiday to Hawaii, with her best friend Anna (who is having a major life crisis of her own), an encounter with the man she lost all those years ago could change everything.
    Will she have the courage to fight for what she wants?
