When Stella Cavanaugh gets the chance to come home after a seven-year, self-imposed exile, she takes it. She was born to be a wedding planner, and she hopes creating her sister's wedding might just earn her redemption with her family.
The only thing holding her back is the fear of running into Griffin James, the love of her life. Because she not only hurt her family, she destroyed their relationship. Burned it right to the ground. And she just doesn't know if she can bear to find out he's moved on. She sure hasn't.
Griffin James has a roommate. The fourteen-year-old's staying with him while his dad's on deployment. Sounds simple, but the boy's grandparents are looking for any excuse to pull him out of the clutches of the big, tattooed owner of a bike shop. If Griffin can just stay under their radar, everything should be fine.
But that's just not possible when Stella bursts into their lives. Her sparkly spirit, her big, splashy ideas, and her impulsiveness always lead to disaster. He knew that... but he couldn't resist her.
And now she's on the run again, because...
The very things they love about each other are also what tear them apart.

Movement in the carriage house caught his attention, and when Stella came to the window and looked up at him, his pulse quickened. She pressed her hand to the glass, and he could feel the ghost of that touch on his chest.
Wanted it there.
All of her.
He grabbed his phone off the nightstand and hit her number.
She stepped away, and the gauzy curtain swung shut “Hey. How’d it go tonight?”
“He doesn’t open up to me he way he does with you.” He wanted to see her again, willed her to come back to the window.
She didn’t make him wait long. “Did you tell him he doesn’t have to spend Thanksgiving with his grandparents?”
“I did, but he said he’d go. He didn’t come out and say it, but I’m sure it’s easier to go along with them than try and fight. He’s told me before the judge ignores him when he defies him or speaks up for himself.”
“Defies them. Can you imagine? Not going along with everything they ask of him is viewed as defiance. I would love to give them a piece of my mind.”
He wanted her here, with him. The distance physically hurt. “You eat dinner?”
“Well, I had a really nice salad I found in my mini fridge. I seem to have a secret chef who loads it up every now and then. Wonder who it could be?”
He couldn’t deny how good it made him feel to know she had something to eat when she was buried under all that paperwork.
“I can see that, you know. That sexy little man-grin you try so hard not to show.”
He broke into a full grin. “I’m not hiding anything. Hey, speaking of shows. Thank you for not doing naked yoga in your living room. There’s only so much a man can take.”
“I try to save those kinds of activities for when there isn’t a fourteen-year-old boy in the house.”
“I could send him to boarding school.”
She laughed. And when emotion took up too much space inside him, he went quiet.
She went quiet, too, and it made him wonder… why did he only notice his beating heart when she was around?
Because she is my heart.
She just is.
“Yes?” Her voice was all breathy, a little eager, a little scared.
“You want me to make you some tea?”
“Yes. Very much.”
The urgency pounded like a drum in his throat. “What kind?”
“Anything. I’ll take anything you have to give.”
Damn, this woman. “Get over here.”
Six years ago Fin Bowie made a decision that cost him the love of his life. Now his ex is coming back to town for her brother’s wedding, and he can finally make things right.

The last thing on Calliope Bell’s mind is getting back with Fin. Not when her life’s just gone sideways, forcing her to spend the summer in Calamity, Wyoming. She can’t be away from the New York art world this long, so she comes up with the idea to turn the hottest pop culture event of the moment into a museum exhibition.
The two have every intention of avoiding each other–until the county judge sentences Fin to community service… helping her exploit the meme he’s trying to make go away.

After losing her restaurant, chef Delilah Lua enters a cooking competition thousands of miles away from home. Winning would resurrect the dream that’s been stolen from her.

…but she’s not sure how to have her cake and eat it, too.
Despite the undeniable sparks in the kitchen, Will’s not about to give his heart to another woman who’s leaving, and Delilah must decide if the delectable future she could cook up with Will is worth more than a childhood dream.
