Sugar & Spice Tour

A Love Soul Deep by Amber Scott

A gold locket catches her eye and her heart. Inside the tiny gold frame is a picture of the one man she compares all others to. The one that got away..

Can this locket, one wish, bring back the love she lost?

What Crew would do for Sara, from A Love Soul Deep, for Valentine’s Day...

The thing about Crew is he’s unconventional. He’d rather be in ripped jeans than a suit and tie any day of the week and not because he’s poor or uneducated. Because he doesn’t care what others think. He does however, care very much about what Sara thinks.

Crew didn’t know he loved Sara til he almost lost her. And he almost lost her because of his own idiot behavior. Having a second chance at winning her heart means the world to him. He wants to spend the rest of his life making up for his mistake.

Every day is a chance at this, but Valentine’s Day is special. Sara will never expect what he’s got up his sleeve. Mostly because sleeves aren’t his thing. Let alone having anything up them.

There’s a spot up north his parents used to take him as a kid. Camping gear packed, Crew is taking Sara to his favorite little waterfall right next to a sort of cave in the rocky wall where in late spring, a tiny pool remains. This time of year there won’t be snow, thankfully, but the low temperatures mean packing for it and brand new wool mittens and socks are part of her gift.

There’s an elm not far from the watering hole that his dad carved a heart into once. A week ago, he carved one in, too. “S+C 4-ever.”

Sara gets him like no one else in the whole world gets him. And while he definitely has nerves about it, he’s pretty sure she will love his choice in rings. The large pillow cut amethyst sits in a white gold bed with four small diamond points and a sort of filigree pattern that the lady at the shop said represented the paths we take in life. The ring from an old estate sale spoke to him.

He knew she’d love the ring, actually. The more he pictured it on her hand, the surer he became.

The only question that remained was could he make this the best Valentine’s Day ever because she’d say yes.

 Only In Time by Kelli McCracken 

Jonah McCabe made a horrible mistake six years ago that cost him his chance at happiness. Then fate interceded.

A last minute favor has him coming face to face with the past. Every beautiful inch of it. Her laughter still echoed in his mind. As did the pain in her voice the day she left.

Can he make things right in a race against the clock or will time continue to work against him?

From Only In Time, what Jonah would do for Ally for Valentine’s Day...

It’s been six years since Jonah and Ally celebrated Valentine’s Day, together... And even then, it was never anything major. Normally the movies. With Cassie tagging along. If he’d listened to his heart all those years ago, he wouldn’t have missed any of those other holidays. Nor would Cassie have continued to accompany them everywhere.

All of that changed this year. He’d see to it. Would do everything in his power to give her a day she wouldn’t forget. Because that’s what love was about. Giving every part of yourself to the other person. To make them laugh and smile for the rest of their life. Not because you have to, but because you want to. Your heart would explode if you couldn’t express the emotions knotting inside it.

Second chances were rare. Just like the magic in the air. Magic that had entered their lives. Maybe the universe was on his side. God knows time never was. But time didn’t matter anymore. Never really had when it came to his love for Ally. That type of love was timeless.

So Valentine’s Day would be special. They’d go up to Tybee Island, the place where it all started. Their last visit here hadn’t left his mind. How could it when he’d discovered her feelings for him had changed. They could walk along the shore, relax on the beach, listen to the hum of the ocean. This time of year, it wouldn’t be as crowded. He didn’t want to share this moment with anyone but her.

He’d wait until the sun started setting before he’d take her to a covered swing. She’d get lost in the waves rolling in. That’s when he’d do it. Serenade her. He had the perfect song, too. Had written it for her many years ago.

And while his fingers strummed his guitar, he’d meet her eyes and sing words only meant for her. Words that revealed how he never wanted to lose her. How he’d always knew she was the one. How a brown-eyed girl stole his heart from the moment he laid eyes on her. Even as a kid.

Then he’d whisper words he’d held in his heart for six long years. Ally...will you be mine?

Sweet Serendipity by Elena Gray

Silence is golden. Honesty...not so much.

Gwen Palmer's saucy mouth gets in the way of her heart's desire...again. Just when she is about to trade her baker's hat for a nun's habit, she comes face to face with her idol, Ethan Reynolds.

Ethan isn't immune to Gwen's loose lips. Nor her quirkiness. And something about her smile tugs at his heart. Will he look beyond her outrageous remarks and see the truth inside? Or will Gwen lose her one chance at true love?

What Sweet Serendipity’s Ethan would do if Gwen were his Valentine...

Ethan’s nerves built on the knot in his stomach. If it grew any tighter, he’d have a constrictor knot. He’d never been this nervous. Had never been this unsure of anything. Then again, he’d never met anyone like Gwen before.

Would she accept his invitation? Hard to say with all the mixed signals she’d sent him over the past few weeks. It had him reeling. He’d never opened himself up to a woman like this. What if she rejected him?

Guess he couldn’t think about that now. He needed to finalize his plans. They’d start with dinner at his place. A crackling fire would accompany hundreds of votive candles. He’d space them out through the room to give it an illuminated effect. Of course, you couldn’t have a romantic setting without music. Nothing too mushy, though. His favorite band Lifehouse would be perfect.

For dinner, he would prepare filet mignon in a garlic sauce with lobster mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. He could make this dish with his eyes closed. That’s not what had him concerned.

Dessert did. It proved to be the greatest challenge. He never questioned his skills in the kitchen, until Gwen. He’d never tasted food as delicious as hers. So he was sticking with something simple, something decadent. Warm molten chocolate cake with a strawberry garnish.

Getting her a gift seemed forward for their first Valentine’s Day date. But this one seemed right. Not chocolates, flowers, or jewelry. For her, this was special.

He’d spent countless hours on the internet, searching for the perfect item and almost coming up empty. Then he’d found it. A picture of Gwen and her grams in front of her bakery. She must have been seven or eight. Her hair in braids. She looked happy and at home.

The package lay wrapped on the coffee table. The bright red satin bow fastened around pale pink paper. Tucked inside was a canvas print, a happy reminder of all the times she spent baking with her grandmother.

At least, he hoped it would bring her happiness. Hoped that one day, he could be the reason she smiled. Maybe she’d realize that he could see past the craziness that spilled from her mouth. All he needed was this one night to prove how hard he’d fallen for her.
