Filled with charm, wit, secrets, and hope, each story is a sweet romance that will keep you listening into the night.
The Kiss Thief by Rachelle J. Christensen
As the head librarian of the Echo Ridge Library, Britta Klein thrives on order and categorization. Unfortunately the old church-turned-library is in desperate need of a renovation. The Harvest Hurrah fund-raiser seems to be the answer, but plans keep going awry. With help from Milo Geissler, accomplished musician, piano tuner, and kiss thief, each catastrophe is narrowly avoided. Britta's heart refuses to be swayed by his help, his personal attention, or his irresistible dimpled smile. But when Milo goes to great lengths to help Britta find a key classic book, she begins to wonder if there is more to life than books and order. Can she allow this man who speaks the language of music to tune her heart to a new song?
The Lion, the Witch & the Library by Lucy McConnell
Jennifer Solomon's birthday wish is to have the one person she's been too shy to go after: Kirke Staples, Echo Ridge's resident playwright, an avid mountain biker, and her best friend. Friend, as in don't kiss, don't covet, and don't - under any circumstances - fall in love with the man. But it's too late; she's already fallen in love. Hoping for a birthday kiss that will change everything, she arranges an "accidental" meeting with the handsomest man on the library board. Her carefully laid plans are thrown off track when the beautiful Bay Barington sweeps into town and casts a spell over Kirke. In her efforts to win Kirke's heart, Jennifer is forced to take a look at her inner self and decide what type of woman she wants to be - a lion or a witch.
The Last of the Gentlemen by Cami Checketts
Despite the hardships she's faced, Emma Turner is determined to make a good life for her three children. Working nights and struggling through life doesn't leave much time for romance, which is just fine as far as Emma is concerned. But when her son's good-looking lacrosse coach takes an interest in her children, Emma has to fight off the smolder in her stomach and banish her daydreams. This schoolgirl crush needs to end before she embarrasses her son and herself. If only she could tell that to her heart

The Kiss Thief by Rachelle J. Christensen 
This was such a cute story! I was about two insecure people trying to overcome their own short comings to be able to learn love each other. When love comes before they expected they both become skiddish and run from each other. We all do that in life don't we? This was a great reminder of many life lessons. Great job Rachelle!

The Lion, The Witch, and the Library by Lucy McConnell
I loved this one! Jennifer and Kirke were made for each other. Best friends long before a serious relationship bloomed which is how it should be! The best relationships come from being best friends in my opinion. This was an awesome addition to the set! 

The Last of the Gentlemen by: Cami Checketts
I loved this one so much! Being a single Mom is hard. Trying to keep all your kids happy as well as your self, while still doing everything, is exhausting. I know from experience because my hubs is gone A LOT and I play this role nearly everyday. Emma needed a guy like Chayton in her life to help keep things balanced and to love her AND all her baggage. All the lacrosse stuff was great too. I know that is a big part of the Authors life which makes the story that much better. I love a great happily ever after! Another great one Cami! 

Much Ado About A Kiss by: Heather Tullis
Fay reminds me so much of me. I am not a forgiving person at all. Once you are on my bad side it's near impossible to change my mind about you. I needed to hear this story this week. I think it was meant just for me... I loved Fay and Austin's story it was awesome. They come from a long history with a lot of misunderstanding. It was so fun to watch them try to build a new and better relationship. This story brought on a lot of thinking material for me...Great job Heather!

Pride and Persuasion by Connie E. Sokol
I thought this was such a cute story. Armand and Lindy found each other when they both needed someone the most. I love how their personalities complimented each other and they made such a great team. That is so important in any relationship. This was a great conclusion to another awesome set of books! Great job! 

NOTE: I was given and ARC copy of this book by the Authors in exchange for an honest review
