Navy SEAL Tony Vlachic meets out gay actor Adam Wyndham at the end of 2007’s All Through the Night and sparks fly... Navy SEAL Tony Vlachic has kept his sexual orientation a secret for years under the threat of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” That is, until he meets Adam Wyndham, a charismatic yet troubled movie star. Tony knows he’s risking his military career when he approaches Adam in front of his SEAL teammates. And Adam, nursing a broken heart, has no interest in a relationship. Still, neither man can deny their instant attraction. Tony didn’t become a SEAL by accepting rejection, and his pursuit of Adam leads to one unforgettable night. But the next morning, Tony is ordered to ship out to Afghanistan with SEAL Team Sixteen, and he’s forced to leave Adam with too much unsaid. As Tony enters a dangerous war zone, Adam has to choose between keeping the home fires burning, or taking a blowtorch, igniting the hope of a new relationship with a perfect-for-him man, and burning it all to the ground. When Tony is injured, the two men must face their feelings for each other. With a little help from some friends—Tony’s SEAL teammates of Izzy, Jenk, Lopez, and Gillman, and Adam’s longtime frenemy, Troubleshooters operative Sam Starrett—they must decide if what they’ve found together is worth risking even more than their hearts.

Annotated reissue originally published 1995 A workaholic thirty-something couple and a baby… Josie Cooper’s got the perfect-for-her life. This former small-town-girl has worked long and hard to grow her computer start-up into a company to be reckoned with. She’s also found her soul-mate in brilliant, quirky, and extremely sexy architect Cooper McBride. And they’re happily—if busily—living out their HEA in Manhattan, the City that Never Sleeps. The ongoing journey of a happy marriage is one that needs constant work and compromise, but Josie and Cooper are experts at thinking creatively to make their lives and relationship vibrant and thriving. But when Josie’s brother and his wife are killed in a car accident in the mountains of Tennessee, their two small children—four year old Lucy and nine month old Ben—have nowhere to go, unless Josie and Cooper step up. “I saw a baby once,” Josie tells Coop, “but that’s the extent of my experience…” Outside-of-the-box thinking is this power-couple’s forte, but adding two understandably needy kids to the chaos of their lives is a daunting challenge—one that will test them in unexpected ways… With footnoted commentary about everything from pre-smartphone life in 1994/1995 (when Embraced by Love was written, published, and is still set) to thoughts on writing romance and how much Romancelandia—and her own writing—has changed in the past twenty-something years, Suzanne Brockmann presents a special annotated edition of one of her very earliest books. Set in 1995, Embraced by Love is a full length novel of 64K words (76K with annotations) or 240 pages. It was originally published in 1995.

Reissue Originally Published August 1998 Someone needs a makeover… Marisala Bolivar has a problem. She’s come to Boston to get an education, and it’s awkward enough that she’s several years older than the average college freshman. But when she finds out that her overprotective uncle Santiago has asked her old friend Liam Bartlett to be her guardian…? She’s not happy. She’s too old to be anyone’s ward—and especially not Liam’s, whom she’s secretly adored for years. Liam first visited Marisala’s tiny island nation of San Salustiano years ago, when she was just a girl. As an American journalist, he was there to report on the authoritarian government’s human rights violations, and he was quickly targeted as an enemy of the state. He spent years in the soul-crushing darkness of a jail cell until Marisala—with her fellow freedom fighters—broke him out and helped him escape from the island. But now peace has been won. And while Marisala has the skills to lead a guerrilla fighting force and survive in the jungle for months on end, her uncle has decided she needs to be “civilized”—and that Liam is the perfect man to teach her how a “proper young lady” should behave. But Liam has problems of his own as he struggles to deal with the PTSD he hides behind his sunny smile. And Marisala has other plans… Set in 1998 in Boston, Massachusetts, Freedom’s Price spins the Pygmalion/makeover romance trope on its head. It’s a full length novel of 50K words or 212 pages, and is the second in Brockmann’s two-book Bartlett Brothers series that begins with Cal’s story in Forbidden. Freedom’s Price was originally published in 1998 by Bantam Loveswept.
