Almost as if your favorite authors realize you’ve going a little cabin crazy waiting for Mother Nature to decide if winter is over and whether spring has finally sprung, they venture outside this month with a trio of romances set on the beach, by the lake, and in the mountains.

Barefoot with a Bad BoyStart your reading barefoot on the beach with New York Times Bestselling Author Roxanne St. Claire’s Barefoot with a Bad Boy, Book 3 in her Barefoot Bay Undercover Series.  Former spy Gabriel Rossi had been searching for CIA linguist Isadora Winter, a woman he loved and lost.  Now a woman has approached him the beach claiming to be Isadora.  Lila Wickham has been working undercover for so long she sometimes can’t recall who she really is but one thing for sure, she never forgets the little boy she must protect.  With her health fading, Lila approaches Gabe Rossi for help and protection. Soon they are working together to draw out the killer who has Lila in his sights.

Country Bride#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Debbie Macomber and New York Times Bestselling Author RaeAnne Thayne take a romance double-header to the mountains in Country Bride: Woodrose Mountain, a twofer reissue from April of 2012.  In Macomber’s Country Bride, Luke Rivers agrees to marry Kate Logan after she has one glass of champagne too many at her ex-fiance’s wedding reception, and then the stubborn rancher refuses to renege on that promise once the bubbly wears off.  Why Kate wonders does Luke keep insisting that she loves him and not Clay?  In Woodrose Mountain, Thayne introduces readers to another single-minded man.  Brodie Thorne will stop at nothing to get his injured daughter the help she needs, even if that means convincing a reluctant Evie Blanchard, the town’s new physical therapist, to move in with the two of them.

Starlight on Willow LakeAnd #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Wiggs brings Book 11 in her Lakeshore Chronicles to paperback this month.  Starlight on Willow Lake sweeps readers away with a tale about the delicate ties that bind a family together . . .  and the secrets that can tear them apart.  Faith McCallum is focused on rebuilding her life and giving her two daughters a stable home and a better future.  So far, that has meant moving them into the historic lakeside home of the injured Alice Bellamy.  Faith can handle her sharp-tongued and demanding employer; it’s Mrs. Bellamy’s charismatic son, Mason, she’s having trouble with.  All Mason seems to want is to be back in Manhattan with his jet-setting finance, but his mother’s devastating accident—and a long buried family scandal—have forced him home to this remote lakeshore town in the Catskills. When Faith makes a chilling discover about Alice, Mason is forced to reconsider his desire to keep everyone, including his mother at a distance.  Could it be possible that a new life—and lasting love—await on the tranquil shores of Willow Lake?
