Pas de deux by E.J. Noyes

With the Rio Olympics just ahead, Caitlyn feels like the world is hers for the taking–with her trusty horse, of course. She won’t let anything stop her from her lifelong dream of winning an Olympic medal in dressage, not even the unexpected arrival of her childhood frenemy. A successful veterinarian, Addie jumped at the chance to fill in last minute for the US Olympic Dressage Team. Her crush from youth is on the team, but that won’t be distracting, right? The two women have very different memories of their Pony Club days and when their paths cross, they clash. Can they set aside their differences and learn to work together? And are all the frustration and hard feelings actually a sign of something else?

Don’t miss author E.J. Noyes talking about her own Pony Club romance and how it inspired her new release.

Love’s No Joke by Cheri Ritz

Mara’s only commitment in life is to her stand-up career and she’s long accepted the role of the player among her friends. Now she’s got a chance to serve as an emcee at a fundraiser that will not only give her exposure, but also help her meet some cute ladies. Victoria isn’t ready to get back into dating after her disaster of a relationship ended, but she does need a date to her grandmother’s birthday gala. When she’s forced to represent her family at a local fundraiser, she’s on the lookout for date material and meets a charismatic comedian. The two are parired on a planning committee and Victoria knows this is her chance. She proposes the Fake Date Deal: Victoria gets a date and Mara gets a break from her player reputation. No way this will lead to anything like feelings or romance or a deep, deep desire to stare longingly into one another’s eyes. Never.

A fling with a charming stranger might just be what she needs to shake things loose. The charming stranger in question is Alex, a jetsetter who travels the world for work and finds friendly faces to date wherever she goes. Finding someone to build a life with, though, feels elusive. Until one weekend in Aspen makes her want many more…
