An unexpected inheritance might be the gift of a lifetime.
The Back Up Plan, an all-new second chance standalone romance in the heartwarming Sunrise Cove series from New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis is now available!
New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis returns to Sunrise Cove with a heartwarming tale of three people who are bought together when they’re bequeathed an old Wild West inn that has the potential to pull their lives apart, but instead turns into the gift of a lifetime.
When Alice receives a call about an unexpected windfall, she’s stunned to learn the gift is a falling-apart-at-the-seams old Wild West B&B she once considered home—and she’s inherited it along with two strangers. Except they weren’t always strangers. Once upon a time, they were friends. One is her ex-BFF Lauren. The other is Knox, the only guy to ever break her heart, all while never even knowing she existed.
It turns out their lives are unknowingly entangled because they once separately helped the same woman without expecting anything in return. Years later, Alice, Lauren, and Knox are broken in their own way, with their own history—and secrets— causing them to start out on the wrong foot with each other. But according to the will, they must renovate and be partners in the inn for one year or else lose their inheritance.
Stuck together, they make a list of rules to keep the peace—rules that end up doing the opposite, but by some miracle they find what they didn’t even know they were looking for—acceptance, true friendship, and in a case (or two!), true love.

Most of her books come from a combination of hard work, cookies, and hot guy pics, and not necessarily in that order.
Jill often travels to reader weekends & conventions where she LOVES getting to meet and hang-out with readers. The only problem being she tends to get lost in her hotels. So if you ever see NYTimes Bestselling author Jill Shalvis roaming the halls, someone please return her immediately.

The Game is Vi Keeland’s newest standalone. I loved Bella and Christian. They have a hilarious meet-cute and it just got better from there! Bella is left an NFL team from a father she never knew. Christian is the star quarterback who takes one look at her and knows he needs to spend more time with her. He shamelessly flirts and asks her out but she keeps saying no. He’s not going to give up until he gets a yes. He offers to help her get to know more about the team and the players and their working dinners turn into a friendship. He chases her but it’s the good chase. He doesn’t just want the end game, he wants the whole thing. Now he just has to convince her to take a chance on him. Bella doesn’t give in easily, but when she does, wowzas! Christian isn’t anything like she thought he would be. He’s sweet and nice and not a player. And he’s handsome and sexy! After spending time with him she just can’t say no anymore. Trusting someone is her biggest fear and she needs to trust in Christian to be kind to her heart. Christian and Bella are so fun together! I loved their banter and their chemistry is on fire! As always, Vi’s writing is fantastic and the story is compelling, emotional and fun. I loved that Christian was the one who was all in from the very beginning. It was refreshing to see the man want more!
