NEW #romance Cape Cod Promises by Bella Andre & Melissa Foster​ 'adored' by Cali Book Reviews​ ....

"I absolutely adored Cape Cod Kisses, so I knew with out a doubt that I would enjoy Cape Cod Promises, and I was NOT wrong! Cape Cod Promises is the story of Trent and Reese, who were once married, but lost their way early in the marriage.

We didn’t have to watch Reese and Trent fall in love, because it was obvious from the beginning that they never fell out of love. We got to witness them staying in love and staying together.

I love the characters, I love the story. I have always wanted to go to Cape Cod, and now I want to go even more. I will drag my husband there one of these days!!"

Cape Cod Promises is the second book from the Love on Rockwell Island Contemporary Romance Series by New York Times & USA bestselling authors Bella Andre & Melissa Foster.

Fall in love on Rockwell Island…Sink your toes into the sandy beaches at the heart of Cape Cod Bay, where family comes first, good friends are around every corner, and true love is waiting beneath the stars.

Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, coownership of the Rockwell Resort, and a big, loving family. And yet his failed marriage to Reese Nicholson has haunted him for ten long years. Now that he has moved back to Cape Cod Bay to help run his family’s resort, he is surrounded by memories of Reese…and he can’t stop longing for the woman he’d always believed was his one true love…

At nineteen, artist Reese Nicholson was swept off her feet by the handsome, charming, and incredibly sensual Trent Rockwell. After a whirlwind courtship, they married and moved to New York City, where they hoped all of their personal and professional dreams would come true. But six months later, Reese returned to Rockwell Island brokenhearted and disillusioned.

For a decade, Trent and Reese carefully kept their distance. But all it takes is one accidental late-night encounter to immediately stir the desires they have both tried to bury deep. Powerless to resist the heat between them, every passionate kiss, loving caress, and heartfelt apology draws them closer together. So close that they can’t help but wonder if the promises they once made to love each other forever are still true…

Available to Audible members only

Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he's going home to try to forget her all together.

Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she's never needed a man to help her find her way - until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she'd spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain - including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat. When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever - and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

Return to Me by Carolyn Menke, Author 'is a great sweet story' reviews A Soccer Mom's Book Blog....

"World War II is my favorite era of all times. It is nearly impossible for me to pass up reading anything from that time frame.

Return to Me is a different style of writing than what I am use to. It almost seemed like I was reading James’s journal. The two main characters took turns telling their points of views of the happenings of their lives. I loved this style. It was wonderful to hear how Sadie perceived a certain series of events or what had happen while James was gone to war and then hear James perspective on the same set of events and what he was experiencing in war. There were times throughout the book that I felt sorry for them both, but through it all I kept cheering for them to find their happy ending.

I struggled with Sadie’s relationship with her fiancé. The same fiancé that was a drunk, that he took advantage of Sadie’s connections with the Governor, and the same fiancé that kept pushing Sadie into situations that she was not comfortable with. While I understood that times were different, women were expected to act a certain way, I was thrilled with how Sadie repeatedly stood up to him. She was nice, tactful, but persistent on what she wanted in life and what she was willing to give up.

Return to Me is a great sweet story. The setting, the storyline, and the characters are exactly what I was hoping for when I picked up the book. I recommend checking it out."

Eighteen-year-old Sadie Stark, raised by the governor of Pennsylvania, has the world on a string. She doesn’t need the mother who left her any more than she needs the fiance who promises to change. What she needs is to finish college, and keep her wits about her.

When war-bound James Pasko returns her stolen clutch, and shows her what’s missing in her life, she gains the courage to search for the truth about her past.

What Sadie uncovers rattles her to the core. But James’ steadfast love gives her hope for the future—for the first time—even as the war tears them apart.

When James disappears over enemy lines and Sadie makes a startling discovery, she must decide to follow in the footsteps of the mother who gave her away, or face a life of hardship like she’s never known.

Escape to the shores of Sand Dollar Cove, a quaint beach town on the North Carolina coast. When Elli Eversol returns to Sand Dollar Cove to rebuild her grandparents shops on the old fishing pier following last fall’s hurricane, she’s faced with bigger problems. For one, the pier has taken a much more serious hit by a recent Nor’easter. Secondly, the boy who broke her heart, Holden Moore, is back in town too and tempting her, only her heart is telling her he’s still not one to be trusted. So she keeps her focus on her family and the Buy-A-Board campaign project so she can put those funds to good use and spare her heart. When Brody Rankin answered the online request to help router names into boards purchased in a campaign to save the shops on the pier in Sand Dollar Cove, he’d really just been trying to do a good deed and get a closer look at the sleepy little town where his mega-company is planning to build an east coast warehouse.

ISBN: 978-1507686263 (pb)
ISBN: 978-0990863113 (ebook)
Pages: 280
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Sloan Foster was always a good girl. An honor student in high school, she had big plans for herself, and then college happened. She thought she’d met the man of her dreams in hometown football star Lucas Smith. Then she had the earth shattering realization that dreams were just that…dreams. She found herself pregnant, right about the time he got drafted for the NFL and dropped her like a bad habit. Now a struggling 25 year old single mom, she works as a massage therapist and is determined to take care of her son, Sage, on her own, without a dime from him. No matter how many times he tries to pay her to ensure her silence.

Loxley Storm was raised by his mom, his dad was a dead beat he never knew. Growing up, he had anger issues and got into a lot of trouble for fighting. Thankfully, a man named Marco took him under his wing and helped him learn to control his anger by fighting…in the ring. Now 26, he is an MMA fighter working to become pro, helping run Marco’s gym along with his best friends, Sly and Huck. To the trio, getting tied down with women is something they don’t need. To blow off steam, they have the “hit it and quit it” motto.

Until an injury in a fight lands Lox on Sloan’s massage table, where sparks fly and neither can deny the attraction. The more pieces of Sloan Lox finds out, the more he respects her and her accomplishments as a single mom. Sloan is hesitant to trust another man, and she sure doesn’t want to risk her son getting hurt, but how long can she keep Lox at arm’s length? Will she let Lox in? Or will she let her past ruin her chances of finding love again?
