MARRY ME AT WILLOUGHBY CLOSE (WILLOUGHBY CLOSE) BY KATE HEWITT
Release Date: July 18, 2017
Welcome to Willoughby Close… a charming cluster of cozy cottages, each with a story to tell and a happy ending to deliver…
Alice James has been a drifter her whole life, working her way through several foster homes before ending up in Wychwood-on-Lea, feeling anchorless and invisible. When a chance encounter leads to Alice accepting a position as a caretaker and companion to Lady Stokeley, she starts to feel as if she might finally be able to put down some roots and live the way other people do.
Then, Lady Stokeley’s nephew, city banker Henry Trent, storms into Willoughby Manor, seeming to find fault with everything, including Alice. As the next in line to the manor and title, he threatens to upturn everything she’s started to build. But Henry is hiding his own secret fears and weaknesses, ones he's desperate for no one to discover. A surprising and inconvenient attraction that simmers between them leaves Alice feeling more confused than ever, and Henry torn between duty and desire, fear and love.
When circumstances become even more difficult, both Alice and Henry must decide who they really are, and what they are willing to fight for. Could Alice possibly the next Lady of Willoughby Manor?

LEADER OF THE PACK (THE DOGFATHER) BY ROXANNE ST. CLAIRE
Release Date: July 21, 2017
Very few things ruffle K-9 trainer Liam Kilcannon. Stoic and steady, he has the patience and skill to transform a harmless puppy into a highly protective “schutzhund,” and the quiet strength to lead his five younger siblings through the storms of life. A former Marine who doesn’t waste words or squander emotions, Liam is also a man who very much wanted to spend his life with one special woman by his side. He found her… and lost her. And Liam won’t ever let himself slide down the Andi Rivers Slippery Slope to Misery again. But when his father tells him Andi’s house has been broken into, he doesn’t hesitate to offer her his beloved protection dog, a decision that will put them in close and constant contact.
Architect and single mom Andi Rivers knows nothing in life is certain, having first-hand experience with unexpected changes and tragedies that upended her world. Determined to protect her deeply shy little boy from another heartache, she’s vowed to stay single and unattached no matter how long and lonely her nights might be. Hesitant to take Liam’s dog at first, she soon changes her mind when an estranged relative launches a campaign to take custody of little Christian. A dog won’t be enough…Andi needs a family to protect her son. When the Kilcannon clan moves into action, the solution they offer is drastic but perfect. Liam and Jag are there to protect Andi’s home and child…but what will protect their hearts from the risk of falling in love – and failing – one last time?
REVIEW: LEADER OF THE PACK (THE DOGFATHER) BY ROXANNE ST. CLAIRE
Leader of the Pack by Roxanne St. Claire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Jag and Liam are a match made in heaven. Fierce, loyal and irresistible. Protection is embedded deep and when they spot danger, it's full throttle time. I was a goner the minute I saw this dynamic duo in action. Their connection is uncanny, but their love for each other is unbreakable. Sort of like Liam's desire for the woman that stole his heart and walked away. Andi is his biggest regret and his greatest fear. She holds the key to his happiness, but she also is the one woman that can break his heart. Will he risk the challenge to protect the woman he loves? With Leader of the Pack, Ms. St. Claire set out to deliver that warm fuzzy feeling that is hard to describe and impossible to resist. Instant success.
