In A Prince for Valentine’s, author Merrie Housdon offers the reader a trip back in time to one of princes, kings and St. Valentine’s Day balls.
“Not one girl here worth taking will accept any of our invitations to the St. Valentine’s Day ball, until you’ve chosen your date,” Owen addressed his friend, who had arrived at the university under a royal flag a few months before, his wind-blown, dark hair almost matching the mane of his black stallion. “Last year we were the top choices, but now, all the girls are waiting for you.”
Recognizing his responsibility to choose, Garrett’s gaze traveled around the room, finally settling on the one who had captured his affections.
Will the prince find the courage to follow his heart as his father had, or will he bow to the wishes of his people?
Can love truly conquer all?
Next, for your reading pleasure, we have A Rose by Any Other Name by Angel Nichols.
“Lady, you can’t do that in here!” Alberto Perez shouts into his cab’s rearview mirror, but there really isn’t much he can do. Two hours later, a baby girl enters the world, and so, the story begins.
Eighteen years later, Rose Smith finds herself on the doorstep of a New York City women’s shelter, alone and afraid, but then a handsome stranger with kind eyes befriends her. An old photo, an inherited quest, and a heart-shaped pendant further unite the two young people as they search for answers together.
