Need You Now

Need You Now
Helm, Nicole

Gracely, Colorado, was once a booming mining town. No one knows that better than Brandon Evans. His father's company kept the town thriving for years--until Brandon threatened to expose his illegal practices and drove him away. Everyone blames Brandon and his brother for turning Gracely into a ghost town--but the tenacious residents cling to a long-held legend about the land's healing powers. And Brandon has a plan to spin that legend into reality. Lilly Preston took a leap of faith and moved to Gracely a year ago to save her nephew from an abusive situation. She would do anything for him, even sacrifice her glamorous job. Reluctantly, the former PR hot shot takes a job at the ruggedly handsome Evans brothers' Mile High Adventures, a company offering restorative Rocky Mountain vacations. Brandon thinks PR is pointless, and Lilly knows less than nothing about the outdoors. Which is exactly why they need each other--in ways neither ever imagined.

Joining him at his isolated farm seems risky, but Sadie is out of options. Dawson has given small town Silver Springs plenty of reasons to be wary, but he's innocent of the charges against him. He wants to leave his painful past behind and fix up the family farm so he can finally bring his dependent sister home where she belongs. As Sadie and Dawson's professional relationship grows into something undeniably personal, Sadie realizes there's more to Dawson than the bad boy everyone else sees--he has a good heart, one that might even be worth fighting for."--Dust jacket flap.

The Importance of Being Scandalous: A Tale of Two Sisters

The Importance of Being Scandalous: A Tale of Two Sisters
Bell, Kimberly

"A horse race in trousers on Rotten Row. Visiting a gaming hall in a dress that would make her mother faint. Sneaking an invitation to a masquerade ball attended by only the wickedest, most debauched members of society. None of these things are scaring off bookish but strong-willed Amelia Bishop's stuffy, egotistical fiancé. The only thing left is to entice childhood friend Nicholas Wakefield into a truly engagement-ending scandal. The Wakefields are the height of propriety, and Nicholas's parents have made it clear a wife from the neighboring Bishop family would be unacceptable. But Nicholas would give up his family and his fortune if Amelia would ever see him as more than just a childhood friend. He'll go along with her scheme, even if it means ruining them both, because he's got a plan that will change her mind about him being merely the boy next door."--Provided by publisher.

Exit West: A Novel
Hamid, Mohsin, 1971-

They embark on a furtive love affair, thrust into premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors--doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As violence and the threat of violence escalate, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through."--Provided by publisher.

The Girl From Summer Hill

The Girl From Summer Hill
Deveraux, Jude

"Sparks fly as fiery Casey Reddick and brooding Hollywood actor Tate Landers clash in the Virginia summer heat. A chef who puts her career first and her love life second, Casey doesn't see what every girl in town is swooning over. She made up her mind the moment she met Tate--he's gorgeous, but stuck-up, nothing like his ex-brother-in-law, Devlin who's playing the Wickham to Tate's Darcy in local production of Pride & Prejudice. Casey makes the perfect Elizabeth Bennett--how could she be star-struck when she's heard Devlin's damning stories about Tate? As they rehearse together, however, Casey finds herself attracted to Tate--he's much more down-to-earth than she expected and any physical contact between the two of them literally gives her a tingling, electric shock. As opening night draws near, Casey has some difficult decisions to make. Whom should she believe? The seemingly sincere, slighted Devlin or Tate, whose rough, arrogant exterior may only be skin deep. She's come to love that jolt she gets when they touch--but will she get burned?"--Provided by publisher.
