Earth has been invaded, and the aliens come in peace. In fact, they want to share their culture. The poet laureate assigned to the planet will take on a human companion, and together they’ll travel the world and write about they see.

Katie is an unremarkable human; she’s barely left her parents’ farm. Although she feels completely unworthy to be chosen for the journey, she vows to do her best – even if it means dealing with an icy yet beautiful alien poet who feels this primitive planet is beneath her.

Can Katie make Grace fall in love with Earth – and melt her heart in the process?

Two Broadway actresses, one starring role, and a kiss that might turn rivals…into lovers.

Sophie Rindell has dreamed of performing on Broadway since she was a little girl. But after more than ten years of auditioning, she’s still waiting tables and sleeping on a friend’s couch while she waits for her big break. When she lands an audition for a new musical called It’s in Her Kiss, she’s sure this is the one. Not only is she auditioning for the lead, but it’s a queer role, the role of a lifetime for Sophie.

Julia Vega has been working on Broadway for years now, but she hasn’t landed a starring role…yet. When she meets Sophie at the audition for It’s in Her Kiss, she senses a kindred spirit. They’re both talented and driven, but unlike Sophie, who’s been out since high school, Jules is still coming to terms with her sexuality. This role—if she lands it—could help define more than her career.

As their rivalry heats up, Jules and Sophie fight an attraction that blazes hotter than the spotlight. When the curtain rises on opening night, love might take center stage.

Professional photographer, Shayne Granger, is overcome with shock and grief when her girlfriend of two years ends their relationship without warning. Not only does the break-up devastate her personal life, but her professional life is also left in tatters.

Amber Knight has worked at In Focus Photography as an assistant for the last six months. The moment she entered the studio, she was immediately attracted to both the job and her boss. However, it has become a daily battle to hide her disappointment at the lack of recognition for who she really is—a first-rate photographer, and more importantly an attractive, intelligent, and available woman.

Forced to work closely together to save In Focus, Shayne finally sees Amber in a different light. Sparks fly. But with the return of Shayne’s controlling and manipulative ex, is there any hope of a future between these two women, or will their chance at happiness be destroyed for good?

Though for Zoe Cooper and Amelia Hughes, it’s the very first step toward their happy ending.
It’s been a year since Zoe Cooper packed up her daughter and fled her abusive husband with only the clothes on her back. But life as a waitress, food blogger, and “roommate” to her supportive mother has turned into a holding pattern, and her dream of launching her own catering company and cooking school feels like just another fairy tale ending–when she’s no Cinderella.
Until the newest cooking competition comes to town, and suddenly magic just might be at Zoe’s fingertips with the chance to audition for Heating Up the Kitchen.
If only she can beat Amelia.
Fresh out of a disastrous relationship and determined to prove her ex wrong, Amelia’s got a chip on her shoulder and is ready for a grudge match in the kitchen. When she locks horns with Amelia, there’s more steaming than their buns as the two competitive young chefs vie for the top spot on the show…
…and the top spot in each others’ hearts.
There’s more cooking in this kitchen than the food, and romance is on the menu. When hatred turns to heat and threatens to boil over, their rivalry might just end in disaster.
Or Zoe and Amelia might just find the future they need in each other–in between stolen hugs and quiches.

Laurie “the Hatchet” Emerson is a ruthless leader in Boston finance who’s rumoured to have a block of ice where her heart should be. If only. Recently widowed, Laurie fears she’s broken beyond repair, until a once-in-a-lifetime business deal reignites her passion for work and gives her a shot at proving to the world she still has some life left in her. 

Jack Kennedy is a young portfolio manager who aspires to greatness. Unfortunately, she’s so many rungs down the corporate ladder she can’t even scrape up enough money to move out of her mother’s apartment. Her luck changes when her work ethic is finally rewarded with the job opportunity of her dreams. 

A blizzard forces their worlds to collide, but what was meant to be a no-strings night of passion becomes more complicated when they both arrive at the office the next morning to discover they each spent the night with the one person in the city who could crush their futures. 

Together, they just might hold the keys to everything they’ve ever wanted, but the difference in their ages and positions could spell the end of their careers. Will the ice queen and the protégé find happiness together or lose everything? 

Lindsay:
Two years after my divorce I’m ready to push through the pain. Either I pick up the reins of my life now, or let go forever.

I didn’t expect to cross paths with Rae—in a chat room of all places. She was my first love, who I met in college. Ten years ago, I walked away from us at a time when she needed me. Unfortunately, now I know how that feels.

My first instinct is to run—it would be too easy to fall in love again. Too easy for my heart to break. But now that she’s back in my life, I’m truly grateful for her friendship, even though she’s far away.

Rae:
Real love has evaded me since Lindsay, my first love and the girl I left behind. It’s been a string of friends with benefits—I give my body but never my heart.

But my second chance has come, and the girl I loved is now a woman with a broken heart. She’s a shadow, and everything in me yearns to coax her back to life.

That’s why I’m inviting her to stay with me in Ireland. I think she could use a break away to let the past go and find some healing. I suspect the demons of her past won’t let her go so easily, but I’ll do what I can to help her find happiness again.

Carol only came to the shelter as a publicity stunt.
See, she needed to soften her image. People thought she was this cold ice queen who threw money around like crazy to get what she wanted. I mean, I even thought she was this ambitious woman who didn’t care about me or my animals at all.

Boy, was I wrong.

After the first photo shoot, she kept asking if I wanted to get dinner. She was gorgeous. But she was also so rich and older than me. I was so…inexperienced. I said yes and then Carol told me what she really wanted.

A fake marriage.

I’m sorry. I’m just a simple girl. I don’t get all these rich big city women. I’m not used to lying. or deceiving people to get what I want, which is what she needed me to do.
I just want someone to love. And for someone to love me. Now, I can see my self loving Carol. But can she see herself loving me?

Or am I just too sheltered?

Through snowstorms and stolen moments, through loneliness and companionship, the two learn they can weather anything as long as they have each other–even a surprise visit from Elena’s family.

From solitude to sweetness, there’s nothing like falling in love. College may be strict…but when it comes to love, Cora and Elena are ahead of the learning curve.
