FIRST IMPRESSIONS
by Peggy Jaeger
release date 9.23.15

Family Practice Doctor Clarissa Rogers’ first impression of Padric Cleary is biased and based on gossip. The handsome, charming veterinarian is considered a serial dater and commitment-phobic by his family and most of the town. Relationship shy, Clarissa refuses to lose her heart to a man who can’t pledge himself to her forever.

Pat Cleary, despite his reputation, is actually looking for "The One." When he does give his heart away, he wants it to be for life. With his parent’s marriage as his guidebook, he wants a woman who will be his equal and soul mate in every way.

Can Pat convince everyone – including Clarissa – she’s the only woman for him?

Here's the blurb from A KNIGHT'S SEDUCTION, Book 5 of my Knight's Series:

Grieving for her young suitor killed during a prisoner escape, Lady Claire Sevalliere plans to leave the great castle at Wode to live with her aunt. Claire will remain a maiden, devoted to her beloved who died. However, before she can depart, Wode is besieged. Claire is taken hostage.

Determined to provoke a confrontation with his sire, Tye, the illegitimate son of Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau, lays claim to Wode, the de Lanceau family castle. Tye looks forward to the battle in which he will slay his father. It’s the destiny for which Tye’s vengeful mother raised him. Yet, when Tye meets Claire, who challenges his authority, he is intrigued. He’d never be worthy of Claire’s love, but he’ll enjoy the challenge of seducing her. He soon finds he is the one seduced by Claire's innocent beauty and intelligence. She brings light to his dark, tormented soul.

As battle draws near, Tye’s past catches up with him. At risk of losing Claire, he must confront his greatest torment—and his destiny changes forever.

THE WIDOWED COUNTESS
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DUGTZ8Y

If two brothers love the same woman, is two times the romance worth double the trouble?

When Clarinda married the Earl of Norwick, she thought she was marrying the Fitzwilliam twin who courted her. Little does she know that it was David's identical twin brother Daniel, the spare heir, who captured her heart with pink roses and delectable kisses. So when the rakish David married her and made her his countess, an embittered Daniel left London to oversee the earl's estates in Sussex.

Four years later, David's sudden death forces a reunion of the star-crossed lovers and the appearance of Clarinda's randy mother-in-law. Clarinda thinks Daniel despises her for being a fortune hunter - and because she's pregnant with a possible heir to the earldom. Daniel knows Clarinda despises him, but he can't remember what caused their last tête-à-tête to end in a nasty argument. And David's ghost is paying nocturnal visits to Clarinda while annoying Daniel with instructions to pursue his widow and pleas to discover who – or what – caused his untimely death.

Who can be in mourning when twin brothers are causing so much trouble? Or is two times the romance worth a bit of sibling rivalry? Twins double the fun in "The Widowed Countess".

DREAM FAMILY (book four of the Dream Series)

Dr. Sara Alderson didn’t think she had a problem in the world, when she walked into the office for her first day as a partner in her own medical practice. And then the police showed up and arrested her for a crime she couldn’t possibly have committed. Twenty four hours later, after a horrifying day and night in jail, Sara comes home a different – and completely broken – woman.

Clearing her name is her first challenge, but that’s nothing compared to the task of rebuilding her shattered psyche. And the only way she can do that is with the help of the supernatural dreams, the same dreams that have nearly cost Sara her sanity – and almost got her killed – in the past.

Dream Family is the fourth book of the Dream Series.

LOVE WILL FIND YOU

Can their new love survive the scrutiny of the public eye?

After his father’s heart attack, Australian Football League player Tyson Gaspaldi takes his parents on holiday to a small place at the New South Wales coast.

One morning, following a surfing session, he comes across a crying woman on the beach. Everything about her intrigues him, and he can’t walk away. She’s not only sexy and humble, but, as he soon finds out, vulnerable as well.

It’s only been a few months since Katie Cassidy lost her sister in a car accident.

Still overwhelmed by the loss, a chance encounter on the beach with an attractive stranger awakens unexpected emotions inside her. She’s instantly drawn to his caring nature, but also his looks.

However, Tyson’s past quickly catches up with them, causing Katie’s childhood demons to return, and the road to romance becomes anything but smooth.
