FAST-PACED ROMANTIC COMEDY
Welcome to the Caribbean where the sun is warm and the billionaires are warm-hearted. Brides of Paradise is a romantic comedy series centering around the Andersens, an exceptionally wealthy Danish-American family based in the U.S. Virgin Islands with an even more exceptional abundance of unattached men.
Full of sunsets, tropical scenery, and quirky characters you’ll come to love, and of course there’s always a happy ending. (Series rated PG-13 for just a touch of heat.)
When Anna Williams lands a spot on the Vacation Bride reality show, she’s hoping to give her sick father a break from the Milwaukee winter, not win a rich husband. Which is good, because the hunky maintenance man whose broad shoulders and clear blue eyes have caught her attention is neither rich nor part of the contest…is he?
Chris Andersen was a disinherited resort brat until his uncle’s family crashed their private helicopter during an argument over money. Now Chris is a secret billionaire, determined to make the Paradise Resort a success on its own. To pay for improvements, he’s hosting his cousin’s internet reality series, Vacation Bride, a show where women compete to win a rich husband. The women are silly and the show’s a lot of work, but the publicity seems worth it. At least until Chris finds out he may be entering the contest himself…as first prize….
Growing up on the tropical paradise of St. John, environmentalist Ellie Green had three goals: study ecology, save the planet, and marry Ryan Andersen, the dreamy older boy who hung out at the Paradise Resort next door. Ten years later, Ellie’s college plans are in ruins and the planet isn’t saved, but she still has a chance to marry Ryan. All she has to do is help him bulldoze her childhood home and build an island-destroying casino.
Billionaire Ryan Andersen has it all: charisma, women, and a talent for starting new businesses. But Ryan’s never managed to stick with any business–or woman–for long. When Ryan gambles his fortune on developing a world-class casino, he finds himself accidentally engaged to environmentalist Ellie Green. But convincing Ellie to go along with the project won’t be a problem. As long as he doesn’t lose his head and fall in love….

The Lady’s Ghost (Regency Hearts Romance Book 1)
by Colleen Ladd
First Portia’s late unlamented husband left her penniless, then his nip-farthing brother dumped her at Ashburne Hall to decay. If mice in the walls and holes in the roof aren’t bad enough, someone wants her to believe the place is haunted. But Portia doesn’t scare that easily, even if catching sight of the brooding ghost leaves her strangely breathless.
When he was accused of murdering his fiancée a decade ago, Giles Ashburne fled the country to his supposed death. Now he’s returned to the Hall to uncover the evidence that will exonerate him, only to find himself playing a ghost in his own home. Nothing he does drives Portia away, and worse, the stubborn chit is starting to grow on him.
The more Portia learns about Giles Ashburne, the more certain she becomes that her ghost is not only innocent, but far from dead. When she sets out to prove it, she puts herself on a crash course with not only Giles, but the real killer. If Giles and Portia don’t learn to stop striking sparks off each other and work together, there will soon be two ghosts at Ashburne Hall.
