When a psychic tells fiesty, superstitious Kelly Byrne that she's already met her true love, she becomes obsessed with the idea of tracking him down before Christmas. Kelly immediately writes up an 'Ex List' and starts contacting old boyfriends to figure out which one is the one. When her college sweetheart rolls into town, Kelly convinces herself that they're meant to be. The trouble is, sparks are flying with someone she's never given a chance: her best friend, Mark.

Mark Blakely has watched the guys on Kelly's list break her heart, and he's not looking forward to watching them do it all over again. Mark's always been there for her, but the timing's never worked out for their relationship to be something more. Now, just as Mark is ready to move on, the sexual tension between them is suddenly off the charts. With Christmas morning around the corner, he just hopes Kelly will wake up and realize that everything she wants has been right in front of her all along.

Beautiful Tempest: A Malory-Anderson Family Novel

Johanna Lindsey
Authors:
Johanna Lindsey

In her new Malory-Anderson Family novel, Beautiful Tempest, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey reveals the tempestuous story of Jacqueline Malory whose furious desire for revenge leads to a confrontation with the handsome pirate who abducted her - and sparks a much steamier kind of desire.For the first time, James Malory and his Anderson in-laws agree on something: it's payback time for the culprit who kidnapped James and Georgina's beloved daughter Jack from her American debutante party and whisked her away to the Caribbean, no matter that she escaped unscathed. James figured out who masterminded the dastardly plot and is leading a fleet of ships to the West Indies to deliver some Malory-style retribution.More interested in revenge than in finding a husband during her first London Season, Jack is furious that her father left her behind. Then an intriguing stranger leads her and her older brother Jeremy to her mysterious abductor. But instead of capturing him, the Malory siblings wind up as his 'guests' on a ship sailing away from England. As Jack re-engages in a battle of wills with her all too attentive captor, she realizes he is no ordinary pirate, perhaps no pirate at all, but a nobleman determined to settle a score that dates back to the days when her father was known as Captain Hawk - and what endangers her most is the increasingly passionate attraction they feel for each other.Utterly captivating. Wonderfully entertaining. Let legendary author Johanna Lindsey capture your heart with her unforgettable romance.
