I love Shannon Stacey's Kowalski family series. They remind me very much of the old Silhouette Special Editions by Nora Roberts. Fabulous characters, a fun family dynamic, and a light but heartfelt sense of humor.

Shannon has posted Chapter one of Yours to Keep on her website here.

The Blurb:

Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he’s recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiancĂ©. Emma needs to produce a husband-to-be for her grandmother’s upcoming visit, and, though Sean doesn’t like the deception, he could use the landscaping job Emma’s offering while he decides what to do with his civilian life. And, despite his attraction to Emma, there’s no chance he’ll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he’s not planning to call home.

Emma’s not interested in a real relationship either; not with a man whose idea of home is wherever he drops his duffel bag. No matter how amazing his “pretend” kisses are…

  2. @Black Disaster Fairy,

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Stacey's romances are contemporary romances, but they are the same high quality I've come to expect from Carina Press. (I admit, I prefer Carina press to many of Harlequin's print imprints).

  3. I LOVE contemporary romance books! I have not read near enough lately, but this one sounds fantastic!

  4. @Two Readers Reviews,
    I love contemporary, too, but there seem to be so few that aren't also romantic suspense. This series is great.
