Waiting on Wednesday – Hardt, Marchwell & Stephens

 Lessons Of The Heart

Helen Hardt

Spinster schoolteacher Ruth Blackburn has accepted her fate.  She's not meant for love, especially not with ill-mannered—though excruciatingly handsome—Garth Mackenzie, the widowed father of one of her students.  She'll just have to ignore the fact that he makes her skin heat.

Garth Mackenzie is used to loss. The Civil War cost him his best friend and his ability to sleep through the night, and illness stole his wife and son. To avoid the pain of losing his daughter, he keeps her at arm's length, much to her teacher's dismay.  Ruth Blackburn is independent and opinionated—just what Garth doesn't need.  But her vibrant beauty and energy awaken feelings in him he thought long dead.

 

Falling

DW Marchwell

When Scott Alan gets a phone call that his brother was hurt on a logging job, he rushes to Brian’s side, only to find that his injuries are minor—but not before he meets Hank Ballam, an adrenaline-seeking logger who's an outcast among his co-workers.
Hank is a study in contrast: he lives for the rush of climbing and cutting trees almost as much as he loves the peace he finds exploring the mountains he calls home. Scott’s attraction to Hank is immediate and mind-blowing, and it’s what Scott has always wanted: to know what it’s like to love someone he can’t live without.
Scott needs to know if Hank’s true feelings will be a roar of passion or simply a quiet friendship, one that doesn’t match Scott’s devotion. But it may be too late… Scott simply can’t help himself from falling hard for Hank.

Anything You Can Do

Marianne Stephens

Daycare director, Allison Minetti, runs “Ryan’s Rugrats” for children of employees of Ryan Industries and needs financial aid for the center. CEO Jeffrey Ryan doesn’t take her request seriously. She challenges him to spend a week in daycare. If he loses, he’ll consider donating funds. If she loses, she’ll spend a friendly weekend with him and end her donation requests.
Allison makes sure he experiences daycare routines including Diaper Day, Kitchen Day, field trips, and swimming lessons, all which threaten Jeff’s orderly realm of sanity. Decreased numbers of kids at the center make his days easier and cause her to become suspicious of attendance disappearances.
Instant mutual attraction leads to a week of seductive teasing and brief steamy encounters. Both welcome the weekend and a chance to satisfy their lustful passion. Hurtful lessons of betrayal from past loves haunt each of them so trust is vital in their relationship. Will someone else’s interference in their challenge lead to mistaken conclusions and pull them apart?

Thanks for posting my book, "Anything You Can Do"! I'm excited about having my first Breathless Press release out (19 Feb.) along with my other ebooks and print books.
The other two books mentioned sound interesting...as a former teacher, I'm drawn to books about teachers!
