Happy Friday!! Today I’m featuring a book with a cover I’ve been drooling over since I first saw it.

The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch

First Line:

“You’ll do as you’re told if you know what’s good for you.”

The Lost Lieutenant is the first book in Vetsch’s Serendipity & Secrets series of Regency romances. And what did I tell you? Isn’t that cover droolworthy? Make sure you hop over to JustRead Tours to enter our takeover tour giveaway from the author!

Until I Met You
by Kimberly Rose Johnson

Early Saturday morning, Brandi Prescott held her latte in one hand and opened the door to leave her favorite coffee shop in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle.


The Cowboy’s Christmas Reunion
by Valerie Comer

“So how many households does that make?” Kade Delgado shifted his sleeping toddler in his arms but Jericho snored on.


Hope for Christmas
by Elizabeth Maddrey

Cyan Hewitt stared out at the waves of the Pacific Ocean.


Can’t Live Without You
by Ginger Solomon

Clarissa Harding entered the cafe for her meeting with her lifelong friends.


Beautiful Heart of His
by Lindi Peterson

Pink is my favorite color. But not when it’s a slip of paper handed to you by your boss.


Restoring Christmas
by Julie Arduini

If Holly Christmas’ heart was in charge, returning to Geneseo Valley never would have happened.


The Cowgirl’s Christmas Gift
by Deb Kastner

Maisey Gray stood stock still, her posture relaxed but her heart racing.


Falling for Grace
by Janet W. Ferguson

It was finally over. Like some kind of cruel joke, mile after mile of long rays of Florida sunlight splashed across the steering wheel of the Toyota Camry, highlighting Grace Logan’s empty ring finger.


I spy some of my favorite authors and after those lines, I have a feeling I’ll be adding more favorites to my list!!! I already purchased and downloaded a copy of this collection and I’m looking forward to snuggling up with a cozy blanket and my Kindle!



Two readers will each win a surprise paperback from an Inspy Romance A Christmas To Remember collection author.
