DESCRIPTION:

Baseball is life.

So is fly fishing.

But what if neither is quite as fulfilling as you expected them to be?

A talented pitcher and cocksure small-town kid with big dreams, Nick Grimes is certain his blazing fastball will send him straight to the Major Leagues. And he’s not the only one with big dreams. Jess, a young waitress who captures his heart, dreams of becoming a famous novelist. The future is bright, they can both feel it – and barely out of high school, Grimes signs a professional contract to pitch for the Detroit Tigers.

But what if it turns out that the minor leagues are a lot tougher than he expected?

And what if his other big love, fly fishing, is not quite it, either?

Can he even find what it is?

Can Jess with her ambitions help him find his true self?

Should he take second chances as both his father and a pitching coach who see something special in him urge him to do?

Should he follow the advice of Sir Jon, a former academic turned recluse and a fly fisherman?

So many questions … and as Grimes discovers, his remarkable journey is nowhere near its destination.

With echoes of A River Runs Through It and The Rookie, Baseball Dreams, Fishing Magic will take you on a journey of a young man chasing the American dream on baseball fields and trout streams and in bar rooms, but most of all, within his own soul.

“No reader should pass this by.” — Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less

Joe Henry was the glue that held his family together. Now he is dead, and his wife and sons are coming together for one final journey to scatter his ashes. First, however, his loved ones have some things to work out.

David, the older son, believes that any minute his life is going to fall apart and everyone he loves will leave him. His brother Scott can’t shake the belief that at heart, people are inherently rotten. Doris, their mother, just doesn’t believe in anything anymore.

Wickedly funny and biting, The Punch is an essential exploration of modern American grief, family violence, and redemption from the bestselling author of Before the Fall and creator of the Emmy award-winning series FARGO.

Enter the world of the most notorious gambling den in London, where matches are made… unusually. Welcome to the world of THE LYON’S DEN: The Black Widow of Whitehall Connected World, where the underground of Regency London thrives… and loves.

Their earldom is at stake. Can they save their futures and find love along the way?

Recovering from his wartime injuries and returning home to an earldom on the brink of bankruptcy, Captain Charles Audley is faced with the momentous task of settling his mischievous brother’s debts. But try as he might, he can’t take his mind off the angel of a nurse who cared for him on the battlefield. And after he crosses paths with an enigmatic matchmaker with a strange proposition, it quickly becomes clear that he might not have seen the last of his wartime beauty.

Meanwhile, James heads to Cambridgeshire, dead-set on winning the hand – and the hefty dowry – of a marquess’ daughter. But when he discovers her already taken, he finds his eye drawn to her rebellious and fiercely independent younger sister. James can’t bear the thought of returning home empty-handed… and although Lady Eloise is convinced he’s only interested in courting her sister, an attraction begins to bubble to the surface that leaves her questioning James’ true intentions.

With their earldom at stake and two young women desperate for men who can understand their deepest desires, can Charles and James find real love? And will the cunning talents of matchmaker Mrs. Dove-Lyon come to the rescue?

Brimming with turbulent passion and steeped in the gorgeous and regal setting of 19th-century British aristocracy, The Courage of a Lyon is a delightful and whimsical historical romance novel by bestselling author Linda Rae Sande.

DESCRIPTION:

Sometimes the best revenge is to thrive…

When Ross MacDougall, fearless warrior, frequenter of brothels, and seducer of other men’s wives, receives word that the Lord of Argyll wishes to reward him for their latest campaign, he’s skeptical. His liege’s gifts are often dubious blessings. Oftentimes, more like curses. Turns out he’s right to be leery. The reward is an Irish lass who looks like a grubby boy meant to work in the stables. And she’s not intended to be Ross’s slave. She’s meant to be his wife.

Men turn away from Elise O’Cleirigh because of the accursed red stain on her right cheek. Her father called it the devil’s mark. Her mother promised it meant nothing. All Elise knows is that it’s brought her nothing but suffering. This arrogant Scot looks to be no different from the others, and that’s fine by her. She escaped her first ruthless husband. She’ll flee this one as well. But this Highlander turns out to be sly. He fights with weapons she’s ill-equipped to counter: kindness, respect, and a gentleness that makes her heart hurt. The man even apologizes when he behaves like a selfish goat. He makes her want to be wanted. And needed. By him. Not a good thing at all because come spring, she’s gone.

She’s the victim of a cruel jest. He dared fate one time too many. An unlikely pair, a winter together reveals they’re not so mismatched after all. But the past proves inescapable, returning with a vengeance to destroy them.

Note: This series is part of Dragonblade’s Flame line, so this is a sexy, steamy, and scorching-hot read with multiple sex scenes. Be advised.
