After his team loses the Super Bowl, he heads to Beauford to brood, but crossing paths with independent and talented jewelry maker Neyland MacKenzie puts a new gleam in his eye. She needs saving and he needs a project… But will his not-so-deft touch ruin her dreams and their chance at real love?

High Octane: Fueled: Texan rebel Maddux Bates’s bad behavior won him last year’s Formula One championship—and an image problem. Getting caught dating a sponsor’s girlfriend, oncologist Brynn Douglas, could sabotage this season too—but can anything slow this dynamic duo down when their relationship shifts into overdrive?

Montana Christmas Magic: Tennis pro Logan Collins inherits a cabin in rural Phillipsburg, Montana, that he’s not allowed to sell for six months. It’s just enough time to start a sweet relationship with artist and chocolatier Julie Thompson. But despite the trappings of permanence—a dog, a horse, and a woman who brings light into his dark days—his life is still in New York. He’ll have to persuade Julie that Christmas in Manhattan is just as inspiring, before the holidays put a final wrap on their relationship.

No Secrets in Spandex: Allegations of drug use surround bike racer Jacob Hunter, and reporter Ariel Hays is ready to do anything to get that story—except reveal her own secrets.

But Carter is a recovering alcoholic who shies away from commitment. Then her brother shows up and they must flee for their lives. Will imminent danger prompt Carter to finally figure out where his heart lies?

Final Mend: Jake Inman may be a triathlete, but he needs a private investigator to help him track down his kidnapped goddaughter in the wilderness. Winona Wall left the PI game, but now to save herself, she must team up with Jake—and avoid love at all costs.
