A cancer scare made Lauren Novak question everything. She quit her lucrative high-tech job in pursuit of following her passion. Now two years later, she’s riding the waves of success as a portrait photographer to the rich and famous.

Joel Bennett gave up on love years ago. Instead, he’s put his time and energy into the only thing that’s ever mattered to him: cooking. As the owner of Tristan’s, one of the most sought after restaurants in North America, his chef skills have given him a celebratory status. And a restaurant with bookings over six months in advance.

When Lauren signs on a new client in search of the perfect engagement portrait where only a backdrop of Tristan’s will do, sparks fly as two highly successful people fight over what it takes to give their clients their all. The only question that remains: how explosive will it be?

Will their drive keep them apart? Or will it pave the way to something more?

There’s a time and place for everything …

Or at least that’s what Tessa Holmes believes. When an empty nest leaves her wondering who her husband is, divorce was inevitable. So was a little reinvention. Ditch the family home and buy a condo in the city? Check. Quit the boring job and start up a successful business? Check. Love? Well …

Graham Berman has a similar story of his own. He divorced soon after he entered the empty nest years. Now, four years later, he’s ready to give love a try.

Tessa plans for everything, even falling in love. It’s listed right there on her goal sheet, six months out. But when a friend asks for her help and it puts her smack dab in front of her destiny, will she throw it all away because it wasn’t on today’s to-do list?

Can you find love in one night? Can you accept your destiny even when it doesn’t fit into your plans?

Finding Love Again…

Yeah, that’s the thing romance novels are written about. Kelly Sorenson should know; she wrote the book on it. In fact, it’s an international best seller. As a romance writer, her dreams of a happily-ever-after died with her husband of twenty-five years in a freak car accident. But that won’t stop her best friend from pushing her towards finding it again.

Naval Captain Aiden Maddock is suffering from a loss of his own. When his wife dies of cancer, he settles into life on the high seas, postponing retirement indefinitely. Fleet Week brings him to the City Of Roses for a few days of adventure. And with a gentle push from his closest friend, finds himself face-to-face with someone that could change his world forever.

Is it possible to find love again when you never fell out of love in the first place? Can romance be found with someone sitting across the table? Or is love the second time around simply too much to ask for?
