NOTHING LIKE LOVE

Simone Oliver prides herself on being a realist and a cynic. A brilliant set designer for a Manhattan theater company, she thrives in the background and is perfectly comfortable in jeans, Chuck Taylors, and a paint-smeared T-shirt. That is, until Zach Hammond, the award-winning (and sexy-as-hell) British director, turns the spotlight on her. He’s clearly captivated by her and won’t take no for an answer—but Simone is determined to maintain her position that love’s not worth the risk.

A hopeless romantic who can quote Shakespeare on a whim, Zach has spent his life center stage, surrounded by world-famous actors and royalty. But nothing he’s seen can compare to what Simone can create. Before long, he finds himself as mesmerized by her brash beauty as he is by her work, and he’s determined to seduce her stubborn heart.

But while the two may have been successful at relegating romance to the wings in New York, when their production moves to a centuries-old Irish castle in County Clare, there may be just enough magic to give true love the curtain call it deserves.

Strom-AlmostLikeLove-19261-CV-FT-v5 (2)ALMOST LIKE LOVE

Television writer Kate Meredith is having the day from hell. First, her show was canceled. Then her fiancé left her for another woman. Now, she’s courting disaster by flirting with the hard-bodied, tattooed, motorcycle-riding bad boy of her dreams…who also happens to be the man who fired her.

If people had told Ian Hart that he’d be firing Kate in the morning and dancing with her that night, he’d have laughed in their faces. Despite her leggy body, the sweet but geeky redhead isn’t his type. At least, that’s what he thinks before spotting her in a club wearing an outfit that reveals her surprisingly delectable assets.

Before he knows it, Ian becomes Kate’s knight on a shining motorcycle, escorting her home to prevent her from running off with some random guy. But when the night is over, “Little Miss Boring” and her sexy former boss just might turn their oh-so-wrong feelings into something very right.

THE MILLIONAIRE’S WISH

It was the easiest deal in the world…

All Allison Landry had to do was pretend to date software CEO Rick Hunter for a few months. In return, he’d help fund her financially strapped charity. How could a woman refuse? Especially when he came wrapped in the most gorgeous masculine package Allison had ever seen.

Footloose bachelor Rick had a reputation to uphold—but continuing his playboy ways meant losing the only home he’d ever known. Which made Allison so perfect—after all, neither of them was looking for a permanent relationship. Yet the beguiling good girl was soon making him dream about forever after—and Rick knew he’d do whatever it took to seal this deal with a kiss…

With witty dialogue, likable characters and strong tension between the leads, this is a very good read.” ~ 4 star review from ROMANTIC TIMES BOOK REVIEWS

WINNING THE RIGHT BROTHER

She liked safe, and there was nothing safe about Alex McKenna…

Practical, ultra-organized single mom Holly Stanton had her feet firmly on the ground. Except when it came to Alex McKenna. Fifteen years ago, the sinfully sexy rebel had stirred her passion. But she’d been too afraid to trust her future to him. Now Alex was back, coaching her son’s high school football team and tempting Holly to forget how wrong they were for each other…

Even when she dated his stepbrother, Holly always had Alex’s heart. And fifteen years apart had only made him want her more…except Holly didn’t believe he could be the man she needed. So he’d just have to show her that not only was he right for her now – he was the right man forever!

Strom’s well-written story shows two people who have to overcome their past to see who the other actually is today.” ~ 4 star review from ROMANTIC TIMES BOOK REVIEWS
