The Forgotten Debutante by Becky Lower (Cotillion Ball #9) (historical)—Becky Lower brings to life the tumultuous post-Civil War America time period of the 1860s in this final novel in the Cotillion Ball saga! Saffron Fitzpatrick never got a debutante ball like her sisters, and romance hasn’t been a priority for her … until Ezekiel Boone sweeps into her life, that is. Fate reunites them three years after their first encounter during the height of the Civil War. People are tired of fighting and death, but Saffron and Zeke may not be able to find their happy-ever-after, especially if a protective older brother and the army have anything to say about it.
Sweet Texas Kiss by Monica Tillery (Sweet Texas Secrets #1) (contemporary)—A brand-new continuity, Sweet Texas Secrets, kicks off with the first of three consecutive releases in April. The Cooper brothers receive the shock of their lives when their recently deceased father, the owner of the lucrative Guac Ole company, wills away their inheritances to three random women. In this first novel, veterinarian Gavin Cooper reconnects with Macy Young, but his delight turns to despair when his grandfather leaves her his family home. Gavin gets only a pair of old reading glasses and a cryptic note about looking to the past to see his future. Luckily, Macy can’t sell the house for twelve months. Plenty of time for Gavin to find a way to get it back. But will he lose his heart again to his first love in the process?
Sweet Texas Fire by Nicole Flockton (Sweet Texas Secrets #2) (contemporary)—The fun continues with book 2 of Sweet Texas Secrets, as middle brother Gage Cooper broods over the fact that the piece of oil-rich land he expected to inherit has gone to his business rival, Australian ex-pat Charlotte Wilkinson. Instead he inherits a quarter of a company he has no desire to run and a mysterious key with the clichéd sentiment that the ‘key to everything is happiness’. Charlotte wants nothing to do with the land, but she can’t sell it for a year. The solution? A marriage of convenience that should get them both what they want. Or will it?

Sweet Texas Charm by Robyn Neeley (Sweet Texas Secrets #3) (contemporary)—In the third and final Sweet Texas Things novel, matchmaking patriarch Jack Cooper strikes again. Becca Kinsella has no idea why the kind old man left her half his company, since she never had more than a few polite conversations with the guy. Grayson Cooper, Guac Ole’s vice president of global operations, is seething and left with just a strawberry-shaped charm and a maddening riddle: “Son, what’s sweeter than success?” But he soon learns his father’s words come from experience and missed opportunity. Jack missed his chance at true love years ago, and he fears his sons will do the same. When Grayson and Becca discover a surprising connection, will Grayson be smart enough to follow his heart instead of his head, before it’s too late?

To restore his clan’s fortunes, Baron Raeb MacKai has bargained with the devil (a.k.a. King Edward I of England) to marry an English noblewoman with a large dowry. However, Raeb plans to have the dowry and not the lady by treating her so rudely she will reject the marriage, leaving him legally entitled to keep the money. Fate has different plans. Amid all the plotting and betrayal, can these two find a way to sacrifice pride, humble themselves, and confess their true feelings to each other in the name of love?

Sweet Texas Fire by Nicole Flockton
Gage Cooper has always wanted the family cabin. Not only for the oil on the property, but as a way to prove to his father that Gage’s past doesn’t define his future. When his dad wills the land to stranger Charlotte Wilkinson and all Gage gets is a mysterious key, he’s determined to do anything to get his rightful inheritance back.
Charlotte Wilkinson never expected to inherit a piece of property in Sweet Ridge, Texas—the Aussie businesswoman is focused on building an environmental analyst career here in the States. But the moment arrogant oil-man Gage Cooper walks into her office accusing her of seducing his father, all plans for selling the property to him fly out the window.
Then fate threatens to send her back to Australia and the dueling duo are forced to accept a fake marriage to keep their dreams alive. But as they discover common ground and a surprising chemistry together, suddenly Gage must decide what’s worth more: the land he’s always coveted or a future with Charlotte.
