Got a busy day today – starting with a sweet new contemporary romance from Angela Schroeder. I’ve got a little peek for you below, but I’ve seen a few others and this one looks like it could be a heartbreaker (but in a good way).

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Publisher: Anaiah Press
Release Date: October 21, 2014
Going to Hollywood was supposed to be something that would change Clara Mackenzie’s life forever.
Her younger sister, single mother Arabella, never imagined that going to California with her sister would have such a huge impact on her life. Now, she needs to try to overcome her past and try to trust again or be doomed to be single forever.
Arabella Mackenzie and her son Liam have never wanted or needed anyone other than their family. When Arabella meets Jeremy Fowlis she begins to have feelings for a man for the first time since before her son was born. Shy, Clara begins to fall for an actor of her own when she meets dashing Jake.
Jeremy is not used to women who do not want to date him because he is an in-demand actor let alone a woman who does not even recognize him. He finds he wants to know more about her but is not sure if he can handle the fact that she is a single mother and has a past that seems to be shrouded in mystery.
Can Arabella and Jeremy both overcome their doubts, fears and past in order to find love?

Jeremy watched Arabella’s face as they played Bluff. She was trying so hard to keep a serious expression but he could see the twinkle in her eyes every time she laid down something other than what she called.
Arabella’s laughter broke into his thoughts. He looked over at Jake and Clara to discover that Clara was curled against the sofa, almost asleep. Jake and Arabella were both looking at him. “What?”
Jake looked at Arabella with a huge grin on his face. “Nothing. We’re just waiting for you to take your turn.” Jake looked at his watch. “Oh, for about the past five minutes.” He grinned as Arabella softly laughed again.
“I doubt that it’s been that long.” He laid down two cards and called out aces but he looked up when he heard the two of them break out into laughter. “What in the world?”
“Nothing. Nothing at all,” Jake replied quietly, as if he had just remembered that Clara and Liam were sleeping. Arabella stood to get a cup of hot tea. She refilled the guys’ sweet tea, drew Jeremy’s jacket closer to her, and sat back down on the floor in the living room.
“Did he notice yet?” Her green eyes darted between the two of them.
“What am I supposed to notice?” he asked, wondering how deep in thought he had been for either of them to have pulled some sort of stunt.
“Jake laid down about ten cards in that last hand,” she said through stifled giggles.
He looked down at the pile of cards and saw there were several there that were neatly stacked under the two that he had just laid down.
“Well, once a cheater, always a cheater.” His mouth turned down in a scowl but eyes were smiling. He picked up his glass of sweet tea and motioned toward Jake. “Never play Monopoly with this man if he offers to be the banker.”
Jake feigned innocence before caving in, “I cannot tell a lie to you, milady. I will cheat you out of money in Monopoly. The banker should not have to do his job without getting paid.” He smiled at her, brown eyes laughing. Jake’s eyes shifted to Clara and he stood.
Angela was born and raised in Iowa, in a river town known for its pearl buttons. Having four siblings, she never lacked for someone to play with. As she grew older, she found herself pulled into books and writing more and more. Her parents are her heroes, her siblings her confidants and tormentors, and her children her wonderful blessings.
