Sarah Holt wants nothing more than to win the Burke & Duke internship and mentor under some of the country’s top architectural minds. The only obstacle between Sarah and her goal is a jilted ex-lover hell-bent on sabotaging her career.
When Sarah meets Leo Russell, an unlikely undergraduate, the attraction is instantaneous and all her best-laid plans begin to unravel. For the first time in her life, Sarah considers the fact that there may be one thing more important to her than her ambition. As her feelings for Leo grow stronger, however, so does her suspicion that all is not as it appears with the man she is falling for.
Determined to uncover the truth, Sarah begins to investigate Leo’s murky past, only to discover a house in the suburbs and a stunningly sophisticated redhead who implores Sarah to walk away. As the line between right and wrong becomes blurred by the shocking revelation of Leo’s guarded secrets, Sarah must make a decision that will ultimately determine the rest of her life.
A LIFE MADE OF LAVA
Evie Danvers has three beautiful, if slightly out of control, children; a stray cat named Dr. Moxley and a best friend who drinks unapologetically at 9 a.m. Evie also has stage four bone cancer and a gallows sense of humour that drives her husband, Nick, demented.
Nick wants Evie to fight. Evie, on the other hand, is almost ready to die. This is not Evie’s first rodeo. She kicked her cancer twice before. But this time around, Evie knows it’s a battle she can’t win. Instead, she focuses on avoiding her oncologist, playing wicked pranks on her mother-in-law and getting her affairs in order, which includes hiring a nanny to take care of the kids after she’s gone.
Having Julia Soanes in his house would not have been Nick’s first choice. Julia smells of memories. And sex. Something Nick hasn’t had in a while. Nick’s moral objections, however, are short-lived. The woman he loves is dying. He can honor her dying wish. Can’t he?
