Available for the first time in ebook, Barbara Delinsky's beloved Crosslyn Rise series, The Dream, The Dream Unfolds, and The Dream Comes True, consists of three sets of love stories. While there's no texting and no Google, there is great conflict. And great sex.

Picture a grand old Colonial home standing proudly on a hill, a rolling front lawn that spills down to the sea, and five generations of a family loving every one of its seventeen rooms . . .

But age has crept up, and the sole family member living there still can barely afford to heat the place, much less cover the taxes and cost of repairs. She knows a way to save it, preserving its glory and charm, but she needs help.

Jessica Crosslyn will spare no effort nor expense to rebuild her ancestral home. But joining forces with architect Carter Malloy is the one thing she cannot do.She's known him since childhood - he was always a bully, and he was especially unkind to her - she can't imagine working with him now. Unless Carter has truly changed . . . and Jessica can finally forgive him?

Home: it's where the heart is. Can love be found there too?

'Delinsky reminds us that we sometimes need to revisit the past to embrace the future.' Diane Chamberlain

'An unforgettable love story by one of the all-time greats' Goodreads

From the USA Today bestselling author of the Harmony Harbor series comes a beautiful summer romance that will keep you reading until the sun goes down! Summer weddings have taken over Harmony Harbor, and the matchmakers are relentless when they meet Theia Lawson, a former navy pilot who's back in town for a mysterious new job at Graystone Manor. Theia's not interested in being set up, and she's resigned to the fact that she's all alone, especially after losing her crew in a devastating crash. But Theia can't run away from love forever, and she might just discover that she's not as alone as she once thought...Firefighter Marco DiRossi wants to beat the matchmakers at their own game, so he conspires with Theia Lawson to pretend they've already fallen in love. It makes sense: they're both lone wolves, and the DiRossis are elated so long as she's not a Gallagher. But just when they want to make their relationship real, a secret is revealed that puts everything Marco and Theia's fought for in jeopardy. As the summer winds down, they'll have to come to terms with their own little scheme, and choose between their families and each other.

Hard Loving Cowboy

A.J. Pine

Walker Everett, the youngest of the Everett brothers, is an enigma. No one's ever gotten close enough to figure him out, and his surly attitude has kept it so not many want to try. On a good day, he can wrangle cattle, repair a broken roof, and bring in a harvest---all before sundown. On bad days---the kind that follow a night of too much alcohol and whatever else is needed to numb his secret pain---he's pretty much useless. Today is one of those days.When Walker shows up for work at Crossroads Ranch and meets Violet Chastain, the new sommelier, he's none too happy to work alongside the sophisticated woman who knows too much about wine and nothing about ranch life. Who cares how much they need her to make sure their first vintage doesn't fail? She does nothing but get under his skin. But when a heated argument leads to the hottest kiss he's ever had, Walker will have to decide whether it's time to let go of the pain of the past and admit he deserves something good.

When Rosie and Jules discover a ground-breaking clinical trial that enables two women to have a female baby, they jump at the chance to make history.Fear-mongering politicians and right-wing movements are quick to latch on to the controversies surrounding Ovum-to-Ovum (o-o) technology and stoke the fears of the public. What will happen to the numbers of little boys born? Is there a sinister conspiracy to eradicate men at play?In this toxic political climate, Jules and Rosie try to hide their baby from scrutiny. But when the news of Rosie's pregnancy is leaked to the media, their relationship is put under a microscope and they're forced to question the loyalty of those closest to them, and battle against a tirade of hate that threatens to split them apart...***What readers are saying: 'Well written, perfectly paced and so timely,. Through excellent character development, Chadwick manages to explore the social, ethical and political questions raised, while still telling what is at its core a beautifully human story.''I could not put this down, even when my heart was aching and my pulse was raging.''This is politically and ethically engaging, as well as a very personal read. It shows a world that is only a few years away, and it left me with a lot of thoughts about gender and science. Excellent.'"The whole plot was set out so effectively that it made me feel like this was something that could be being developed somewhere in the world right now or it's in the near distant future!

There's only one person at my back and I'm not sure I can trust her either, for she was born of an enemy race. Yet sometimes the road to redemption is one that singes us to our very core. And if I fail to find the answers I need to save Phoebe, more than just my wife will die.We will lose the world. Both human and Daimon.
