Amid old memories and a charming contractor, Sara discovers that slipping back into life in Sweet Bay is easier than she expected.

By Alisha Rai
Rhiannon Hunter may have revolutionized romance in the digital world, but in real life she only swipes right on her career - and the occasional hookup. The cynical dating app creator controls her love life with a few key rules. Only there aren't any rules to govern her attraction to her newest match, former pro-football player Samson Lima. The sexy and seemingly sweet hunk woos her one magical night... and disappears.

By Helen Hoang
Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases - a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old...until she hires escort Michael Phan.

By Nora Roberts
For both Zane and Darby, their small town roots hold a terrible secret. Now, decades later, they've come together to build a new life. But will the past set them free or pull them under?

By Jojo Moyes
A Love Story for this generation and perfect for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn't have less in common - a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, "What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?"

By Alexa Martin
When single-mother Poppy and her highschool sweetheart T.K. cross paths in the most unlikely of places, emotions they've suppressed for years come rushing back. But with all the secrets they never told each other lying between them, they'll need more than a dating playbook to help them navigate their relationship.

By Sandra Brown

By Diana Gabaldon
Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart.

What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

By Nicholas Sparks
Every so often a love story so captures our hearts that it becomes more than a story - it becomes an experience to remember forever. The Notebook is such a book. It is a celebration of how passion can be ageless and timeless, a tale that moves us to laughter and tears and makes us believe in true love all over again...

By Colleen Hoover
Lily hasn't always had it easy, but that's never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She's come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up - she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily's life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

By Abby Jimenez
Kristen Peterson doesn't do drama, will fight to the death for her friends, and has no room in her life for guys who just don't get her. She's also keeping a big secret: facing a medically necessary procedure that will make it impossible for her to have children. The Friend Zone will have you laughing one moment and grabbing for tissues the next as it tackles the realities of infertility and loss with wit, heart, and a lot of sass.

By Inglath Cooper
Bestselling author Inglath Cooper writes you the perfect excuse to put down the to do list and get lost in a trip to Tuscany with resigned-to-her-life housewife Lizzy Harper and burnt-out rock star Ren Sawyer.

By Graeme Simsion
The international bestselling romantic comedy featuring the oddly charming, socially challenged genetics professor, Don, as he seeks true love and realizes that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don't find love, it finds you.

By Sally Thorne
Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. Or do they? Debut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love.

By Debbie Macomber
Jenna Boltz's life is at a crossroads. After a messy divorce from her surgeon husband nearly twenty years ago, she raised her two children on her own, juggling motherhood with her beloved job as a Seattle intensive-care nurse. Now that Paul and Allie have gone to college and moved out, Jenna can't help but wonder what her future holds.

By Nina Bocci
For fans of Lauren Layne and Kristan Higgins comes a delightfully fun book in which a young woman is forced to help her old friend revamp his image for the upcoming mayoral elections...and discovers that she might not be as immune to his charms as she once thought.

By Sylvia Day

By Jamie McGuire
The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn't drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe.
