From USA Today bestselling author Alyssa J. Montgomery comes a passionate enemies-to-lovers story of an Italian billionaire and an Australian primary school teacher as they fight for the life of a child they both love…and fight the flames of attraction burning between them.
I have every reason to know the Borghettis are pure evil …
So why won’t my heart listen to my head?
Luca Borghetti might be pure Italian sex appeal, and powerful, and a damn billionaire, but he and his family are responsible for EVERYTHING I’ve lost. My sister. The baby. My father. All gone because of him.
I may have made mistakes, with tragic results, but one thing I know: I will protect what I love. No matter what.
And this woman will give me what I want. No matter how self-interested she is.
Hatred. That’s all these sparks between us are. But it doesn’t matter. This heartless woman has what Christiana needs and whatever that little girl needs, I will get.
But if what Olivia is telling me is true … someone has lied to both of us.

Social worker Heather Penney is living on borrowed time. When her mother died of Motor Neurone Disease, she took the initial blood tests and now nothing is guaranteed, let alone a future with a family and a home and a child. Wongan Creek, and its resident protector, might be getting under her skin, but she can’t afford to get attached.
But even as a new mine revitalises the small town, old secrets threaten to resurface, and Travis and Heather find themselves fighting to save the farms and the futures of Wongan Creek’s long–time residents – and possibly their own lives.

To Charm A Bluestocking by Renee Dahlia
Series – The Bluestocking Series
She wants to be one of the world’s first female doctors; romance is not in her plans.
1887: Too tall, too shy and too bookish for England, Lady Josephine moves to Holland to become one of the world’s first female doctors. With only one semester left, she has all but completed her studies when a power–hungry professor, intent on marrying her for her political connections, threatens to prevent her graduation. Together with the other Bluestockings, female comrades–in–study, she comes up with a daring, if somewhat unorthodox plan: acquire a fake fiancé to provide the protection and serenity she needs to pass her final exams.
But when her father sends her Lord Nicholas St. George, he is too much of everything: too handsome, too charming, too tall and too broad and too distracting for Josephine’s peace of mind. She needed someone to keep her professor at bay, not keep her from her work with temptations of long walks, laughing, and languorous kisses.
Just as it seems that Josephine might be able to have it all: a career as a pioneering female doctor and a true love match, everything falls apart and Josephine will find herself in danger of becoming a casualty in the battle between ambition and love.
