No Wrong Turns by Lisa A. Adams

Jessica Brannah is escaping from her last heartbreak with a loaded car and a new address. But, when Murphy's Law finds her stranded in a back country town, she realizes there's no outrunning love.

Falling For You by Michelle Ziegler

Darci’s ready to move on. Too bad the dating pool stinks. Until, a ghost from her past resurfaces—the man she missed out on in college. 

Andrew was the one man she’d always loved, but neither of them ever made a move. But, old feelings aren’t the only thing resurfacing of late. Darci’s ex comes crawling back at the most inappropriate time, and with all the testosterone flying, she might not end up with either man.

Coffee and Cufflinks by Annabelle Blume

Fresh out of a failed relationship and exhausted by a constant barrage of fiascos at work, Olivia Johnson doesn’t see the man of her dreams standing right in front of her. She tells herself the morning coffee meet-ups with Daren are nothing but coincidence, but even she can’t deny his unequivocal attractiveness. When a night entertaining clients takes a turn for the worst, and Daren shows up where she least expects him, failure starts to look more like fate. 

The Shamrock Incident by London Saint James

Florist, Marissa Carmichael isn’t usually a klutz, but she’s in a hurry and having a bad day. In her haste, she loses her balance and tumbles from the back room of her shop, arms flailing. Her less than graceful entrance halted by a headfirst crash into a display case chock full of silk flowers. 

Trey Cleary didn’t think his day could get any worse, until he finds. himself picking the side view mirror of his BMW up from the ground. On a mission to do something about it, he locates the flower shop matching the name on the back of the van that mangled his ‘baby'. But, his car is forgotten when a beautiful woman bursts into the room like an out of control whirling dervish, and takes one mother of a wipeout into the shop’s counter. Coming to her aid brings out the hero in him like no one he’s ever encountered, and leaves him with a need to know more.

For Marissa and Trey, this just might be the one time it pays to be unlucky.

A Slippery Slope by Rebecca Hart

Anne Montgomery is psyched for her girl’s only weekend, despite her friends’ choice of vacation locale—the snowy slopes of Harris Peak Ski Resort—where someone as notoriously accident prone as she has no business being. When Murphy’s Law finally catches up with her, Anne is forced to consider there may be times when it pays to be unlucky.

from A Slippery Slope by Rebecca Hart:
Anne’s steps stuttered to a halt. “I still need to handle my rental equipment and book a ski lesson. I won’t feel like it after a few glasses of wine. Why don’t you guys grab the table and order me another glass of merlot? Shouldn’t take me more than fifteen minutes.”

Kristin shrugged. “Whatever works for you. Make sure you give them your room number. The rentals are included with the suite.”

Anne giggled, clicked her heels, and saluted Kristin. “Yes, ma’am.”

“Hey, just trying to help you out. There’s no sense paying full price if you don’t have to.”

Maria gave Kristin’s shoulder a sympathetic rub. “She’s kidding, goof. You really need to try to relax. We’re your friends, not your clients. We aren’t going to complain if we don’t have enough comped toothpaste and shampoo.” At Kristin’s look of confusion she continued. “Come on. Let’s get you something to drink. You’re starting to stress me out.” Her gaze shifted to Anne. “See you in a bit.”

A second stop at the front desk earned Anne the location of the rental shop. The clicking of her heels on the marble floor accompanied her as she hurried across the lobby in the direction of the hallway the clerk had indicated. She rounded the corner and barreled directly into a decidedly solid, crimson wall of humanity.

The air left her in a whoosh as she bounced off and staggered backward, arms flailing in a futile attempt to save herself the embarrassment of toppling to the floor for all to witness.

Just when she thought she was doomed to that exact fate, a vice clamped on to her elbow, and she jerked back against the rock hard chest. Strong arms snaked around her, holding her in place while the tantalizing, classic scent of Old Spice wafted across her nose.
