Historical Romance Novellas

After the death of Sue Ellen, the closest thing she has to family, Katy knows it’s time to leave the house she’s lived in as a guest and start over in the city. She quickly secures a job, but before leaving, she must honor the unusual promise she made to Sue Ellen on her deathbed: meet with Mr. Balmer. The elderly gentleman arranges for his grandson Barrett to escort her to a town dance. That evening, shy Katy quickly feels at ease with her partner. If her new position weren’t taking her from town morning after next, perhaps something could develop between them. But Barrett may not feel the same about her, and besides, they don’t have enough time to find out.

A LADY OF SENSE by Sarah M. Eden
Eleanor Sherwood has lived her entire life under her parents’ thumb with little hope of escape. When they choose the unbearable Mr. Broadstead to be her future husband, she begs her father for another option. He arranges for her to meet Peter Havensham, who quickly proves himself a good and kindhearted gentleman, completely different from Mr. Broadstead, and utterly undeserving of a forced engagement. Eleanor cannot bring herself to prey upon Peter’s honor, but neither can she imagine a life with Mr. Broadstead. What is a lady to do when faced with such an impossible choice?

A SECOND CHANCE by Heather B. Moore
Virginia needs a new start in order to recover from her broken marriage and vicious gossips of her neighborhood in Boston, so when her best friend Millie invites Virginia to Chicago, she goes to live with her friend’s family. But when Millie asked Virginia to participate in a double-date, Virginia knows she’s not ready to start dating again. Reluctantly she agrees, only to find out that Max might just be the man who can repair the cracks in her heart.

Three Contemporary Romance Novellas

BRAELYNN’S BLIND DATE by Victorine E. Lieske
When Braelynn agrees to go on a blind date, she thinks she’s hit the jackpot. Tyler is gorgeous and the perfect gentleman. Of course she should have known it was too good to be true. It turns out that Tyler really wasn’t Tyler, but a random stranger who went along with Braelynn’s mistaken assumption. So, she chalks it up to a dumb mistake until she gets to work Monday morning and discovers that her gorgeous blind date is now her new boss.

BIANCA’S HOPE by Rachel Branton
A blind-date-gone-wrong is not the way Bianca would have chosen to celebrate the news that she might be losing her business, but saying no to the sister who took care of her after their mother’s death proves impossible. So for one date, one torturous evening, she’ll endure the company of an infuriating, heartless man she has no intention of ever seeing again. She doesn’t expect her heart to have other plans. Bianca soon learns that sometimes the unexpected is not only what you need, it’s exactly what you’ve been waiting for all along.

BLIND SPOT by Sariah Wilson
Ria has prepared most of her life to meet her prince, trouble is, her mother keeps yanking her back to reality. So when Ria reads about a country teeming with princes, she drops everything and applies to grad school. But every blind date goes wrong, and while Ria commiserates with her roommate Tessa and Tessa’s totally un-prince-like brother Paolo, Ria discovers that all the things she thought she wanted in a man are far from what she really needs.

Ella’s Will by Jessilyn Stewart Peaslee

Ella's Will by Jessilyn Stewart PeasleePrize Format: Print (U.S. only) or eBook

Will Hawkins is a simple stable boy who works in the prince’s stables. When he becomes reacquainted with his reserved yet resilient childhood friend, Ella, Will falls deeply in love with her.

Ella lives a hard life. Both of her parents have died and she works as a servant in her own home, being abused and neglected by her stepmother and stepsisters.

Will is about to propose to Ella, hoping to rescue her from her harsh life, when Prince Kenton announces a ball in which he will choose his wife from among his subjects. With the prince as competition, along with the wealth, security, and comfort he could offer Ella, Will recognizes that he could never give Ella the life that the prince could. Selflessly, and with Ella’s best interest at heart, Will makes the decision to let Ella go and let her choose her own path.

Ella’s Will is a realistic, historical retelling of the Cinderella story, but it is told from an outside perspective. What would it be like to watch Cinderella suffer? What kind of person was she? What kind of person was the prince? What if someone else loved Cinderella before the ball? Ella’s Will examines the selfless and patient nature of true love and brings the fairy tale into the real world. There are no fairy godmothers, no helpful mice. The characters must struggle to solve their own problems, often stumbling along the way. And as they do so, they become stronger, wiser, and filled with a greater capacity to love and forgive.

Remember the Girl by Leanora Benoit

Remember the Girl by Leanora BenoitPrize Format: Print (U.S. only) or eBook

In the hot summer of 1950, a young girl looked down from her window enchanted with the arrangements for that evening’s party. On the lawn, musicians tuned their instruments and servers set tables on the lush, green grass that dripped with linin, silver and roses cut straight from the garden. But most beautiful of all was her mother.

She could not have known that in a few brief hours, her world would be shattered by tragedy.

Six years later, Adeline Jones is nineteen years old, wonderfully independent and on the road to the home of her childhood. She is drawn by memories of innocent, endless days by the lake, often thinking of her friends Matthew Rose and her very first love, the accidentally adorable, Harrison McIssac. Holding to the legacy that her mother left, Adeline is determined to become a woman of grace and virtue.

But, on her return, she finds that not all is as she imagined it to be. Looking-Glass Cottage has lain abandoned, falling into shocking decline and the discovery of a diary, written by her mother, threatens the very truths that Adeline has cherished all her life. Torn between the ardent affections of Matthew and her helpless adoration for Harrison, who has become a puzzle in and of himself, Adeline aches for the guidance of the mother she lost.

This is a story of childhood innocence and the messy confusing truth of growing up. With the witty and charming single mom, Betty Beachamp, at her side, Adeline must remember the girl she once was, to become the woman she hopes to be.

Desperate for funds, Rex accepts a wager to woo the unconquerable Miss Mendenhall, embarking on a whirlwind courtship that puts both of their reputations on the line. But will his triumph be worth the price he must pay? Bound to secrecy, driven by duty, and forced to choose between saving her innocence and saving himself, Rex is determined that nothing will stop him from winning her heart—even if it makes him a scoundrel.
