The ninth enchanting novel in the Lucky Harbor series from New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis, laced with her trademark gift for humour, warmth and romance. Fans of Susan Andersen, Bella Andre, Rachel Gibson, Carly Phillips, and Susan Mallery will fall head over heels for the Lucky Harbor series.

Aubrey has made a lot of bad decisions in her life, hurting people in the process. After unexpectedly ending up on the receiving end of being hurt herself, she realises she has a lot of karma to make up for. She's going to go back and right her wrongs.

Ben doesn't like to live in the past. Hell, he can barely handle living in the present. He's got a demanding job working for the Department of Defense that keeps his body busy and exhausted so that he doesn't think about the past at all. But then he lands home in Lucky Harbor in between jobs and somehow ends up teaching woodworking to teens in trouble and renovating the inside of a used bookshop. Aubrey's bookshop. And there she is, just as beautiful and remote and cutting as ever.

Except...she's not remote at all. Has she changed her ways? He finds himself watching in fascinated disbelief as she seems to be trying to right her wrongs one by one. And she seems to think he's one of them. Only if she's ever wronged him other than being trouble with a capital T and mean as hell, he can't remember...

Hot Winter Nights is the sixth in New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis's Heartbreaker Bay series, featuring her trademark gift for humour, warmth and romance. Perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts and Marie Force. Who needs mistletoe?Most people wouldn't think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn't most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she's been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that-but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once...Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don't mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he's shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly's brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can't believe he's drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who's the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he's ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he's been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.Want more warm, funny romance?
