About This Book
In this charming tale, a love for the ages leaps off the silver screen, as a famous movie star emerges from his shell—once and for all.
 
When Penelope Marsh last laid eyes on the gorgeous man standing before her, Richard Creighton had been a skinny nerd with glasses. Now he’s one of the most popular actors in the world. The only reason he’s back in New Jersey is to play the lead in a period piece directed by Penelope’s cousin. But Penelope’s too old for a schoolgirl crush—especially when the crush in question is a sexy Hollywood hunk.
 
Still sometimes shocked to be the object of a pretty woman’s desire, Richard is most comfortable with the cameras rolling, hiding behind the mask of his carefully crafted characters. Penelope’s presence on the set brings back memories of his painfully shy childhood—and yet he’s powerfully drawn to the willowy schoolteacher with the long legs and vivid blue eyes. Most celebrity romances must weather promiscuous starlets and invasive paparazzi, but Richard faces a different challenge altogether: proving that he’s come into his own since he was a kid—not to Penelope, but to himself.
 
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Along Came Trouble, The Notorious Lady Anne, and Unforgettable.

    Desperate Measures
    A Loveswept Classic Romance
    Love creates the perfect recipe for success when a sexy supermarket CEO draws a reclusive woman into a game of corporate intrigue.   Ellen Kitteridge is doing her best to put a personal but very public tragedy behind her. Trusting any man—especially one who radiates power and sensuality like Joe Carlini— isn’t easy . . . but it sure is fun. She’s never felt more alive as she helps Joe track down whoever is stealing Carlini family secrets. Playing spy games, with lust heating every moment, has taken her way beyond her comfort zone—and now she’s wondering if she’s gone too far.   Carlini Foods is Joe’s life, but Ellen, with her perfect mix of vixen and vulnerability, makes him realize how hungry his heart has become. Fate has made her his co-conspirator as he ferrets out a traitor in the ranks. Now it’s up to Joe to make sure she stays close. Ellen may have been hurt in the past, but Joe’s not going to give up on the best thing that has ever happened to him.   Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Along Came Trouble, The Notorious Lady Anne, and Unforgettable.

    Night Music
    A Loveswept Classic Romance
    When the best-laid plans go awry in Linda Cajio’s delightful, tantalizing romance, a highly unsuitable match leads to an unlikely love connection.   Devlin Kitteridge is proud to be the black sheep of the family. But as the last unmarried grandchild, he’s the favorite target of his matchmaker grandmother—and the only way to end her constant meddling is to set her up with someone of her own. Someone like Marshall Rayburn, the man she was engaged to more than sixty years ago, who is now a widower—and the grandfather of a very pretty, proper, and eligible bachelorette.   Hilary Rayburn doesn’t need to spend an evening with the impossibly arrogant Devlin to know that he’s bad news—no matter how handsome he may be. And yet his plan to reunite lost lovers is too good to pass up. Hilary and Devlin will pretend they’re a match, bring their grandparents together, and watch the magic happen. But after getting one sweet taste of trouble with her partner in crime, Hilary can’t help wondering whether they should turn their charade into a reality.

    All Is Fair...
    A Loveswept Classic Romance
    Two moguls think that money makes the world go around—but in this classic romance from beloved author Linda Cajio, they’re about to be reminded that love conquers all.   When a stunning woman appears from nowhere to seduce industrialist Morgan Abbott, she shatters his steely composure and sends his pulse racing. Morgan has never felt compelled to make time for romance—until this mysterious beauty bestows a passionate kiss upon him before disappearing into the night. And when the temptress reappears in two other cities and again presses her lips to his, Morgan is completely undermined.   Cecilia St. Martin couldn’t be happier with the results of her prank. Distracting her rival while she buys enough stock to threaten Abbott Industries with a takeover is delicious payback for a loyal friend. But revenge is a dish best served cold—and kissing Morgan has aroused a fire deep within her. When Cecilia’s virile prey discovers her ploy, she’ll have to make a choice: conquer her darling enemy or merge her soul with his.   Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: The Redhead and the Preacher, Raven and the Cowboy, and Ride with Me.

    Rescuing Diana
    A Loveswept Classic Romance
    In Linda Cajio’s smart and sexy romance, a bold architect challenges a beautiful, reclusive videogame designer to play for keeps.   It is Adam Roberts’s face that Diana Windsor needs—his gorgeous, rugged, perfect face. But persuading Adam to let her immortalize it in her latest videogame demands a little payback—a date. But for a self-styled computer nerd with zero experience in romance, Diana is stunned by her attraction to Adam, especially since he’s the brother of her biggest competitor. And when spies and sabotage intrude, Diana wonders if Adam’s silky touch and sweet words are after something more than her body.   Actually, Adam wants nothing more than to seduce Diana, but not for the reasons Diana has accused him of. Her sweet nature, her brilliance, and her guileless approach to life make her very vulnerable in a predatory world. He wants her, now . . . and forever. And he’ll put his best moves into showing her that in the game of love, everybody wins.   Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: The Redhead and the Preacher, Raven and the Cowboy, and Ride with Me.
