ER doctor Brianna Ortiz has had it up to here with men. She just finalized a divorce from her cheating husband, and the new guy at work has been nicknamed Dr. Death for losing seven patients on his first day. Yet when she tries to console him about it, his abrupt rudeness totally takes her aback. With a brother who desperately needs a kidney transplant, Bri has enough to worry about without work drama on top of it. Then she gets the sweetest letter from Dr. Death—er, Dr. Jacob Maddox—himself, and suddenly everything becomes clearer. Bri does the only thing she can think of. She writes him back. And he writes her. And soon Jacob’s little notes are the highlight of her day. Both are shocked when it turns out Jacob is a donor match for Bri’s brother’s transplant. Willing to do anything to express her gratitude at his sacrifice, Bri agrees to go as Jacob’s date to his brother’s wedding. They’re not dating for real, of course.

Something Wild & Wonderful

When Alexei Lebedev finally comes out to his conservative community, it does not go well. That’s how he ended up on the rugged Pacific Crest Trail, hoping he can figure out a new life plan in the thousands of miles it’ll take to walk it. He’s prepared for rattlesnakes, blisters, and months of solitude. What he’s not prepared for is the ray of sunshine named Ben Caravalho. Charismatic and outgoing, Ben’s personality and infectious laughter is a stark opposite to Alexei’s quiet, reserved demeanor. But no matter how determined Alexei is to hike the trail alone, it seems they can’t avoid being drawn to each other. Through snow crossings and close calls with coyotes, Alexei inches closer to letting Ben in. The more Alexei learns of Ben’s loving family and supportive friends, he begins to get a taste of what found family and belonging could truly feel like. But just as Alexei starts to let go of his defenses, a sudden change in plans reawakens his fears—and Alexei must discover if he has the courage to face something even scarier than the trail less traveled: letting himself fall.

Or could they even be better, the second time around?

THE MANY DATES OF INDIGO

Hair done. Nails too. Make-up flawless. Indigo knows she looks good . . . now if she could only find someone who could see her as she saw herself: fearless, strong, sexy
Standing on the sidelines of her sister’s third baby shower, Indigo hears the whispers all around her: “Still no ring,” her cousin Tracy says. “Indigo just loves the single life,” her Aunt Maureen whispers. It doesn’t matter that she’s actually got it all—a thriving business and a terrific group of friends, plus her huge, loving-but-sometimes-a-pain, extended family.
Tired of being the only singleton in her group, she decides to approach her love life like she does everything: thoughtfully, thoroughly, and with an eye to finally finding “the one.” Basically, she’s going to get out there and begin to “unstranger” people (as her brother tells her to do). Soon her social calendar’s as busy as her shoe store, and while she’s met some wonderful men she’s yet to find her Frog Prince.
