Mending Ruth's Heart
Three short stories that all deal with fresh starts, where to go "from here."
From Here: A semi-retired opera star prepares for a role with a small regional troupe, reminiscing about his life and a now-deceased mentor, a tenor who sang so beautifully he brought even the jaded narrator to tears.
The Diva and the Drug Addict: Two very different individuals are thrown together at a halfway house after spending time in therapy for personal problems. They learn to accommodate each other, but struggle with their singular challenges.
Russian Tropics: An obscure Romanov princess escapes to Florida with her uncle, but when he dies, she must make her way in the strange land alone, always hoping her family will join her. Fifteen years later, she works as a maid for a gentle employer who offers her a brighter future...just as a hurricane threatens the land and the truth threatens her heart.

Two sweet romances by Libby Malin
Legends and Fairy Tales Refashioned
In Rodeo Robin Hood, Marianne Greene reconnects with old high school crush Rob Woodsman as he battles to save his ranch, and she fights for professional success as a history professor. Both take jobs at a local Renaissance Faire to make ends meet, and sparks fly as they spar with each other. Winning the Beauty's Heart follows Luanne Greene, Marianne's sister, as she charts a new life after breaking up with her long-time fiance. When she begins a relationship with Carson Woodsman, however, her happiness is imperiled by Carson's ex, a Hollywood starlet who believes she is the "fairest of them all" and works hard to bring Luanne down.

WOMAN WITH A PARASOL by Libby Malin
For many years I’ve had a beef with Leo Tolstoy. In Anna Karenina, he’d written: "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."
Not so, Leo. Unhappy families are the ones with the depressing sameness…Happy families, or at least ones that manage to stay together and make a go of things, find a thousand different accommodations for each other’s imperfections, a thousand different sacrifices to make things work. Why hadn’t I been able to make those sacrifices for my own marriage?
A story that explores the depths of maternal love....
When Toni (Antoinette) cons her reluctant thirty-two-year-old daughter, Belle Norton, into accompanying her on a trip to France, mother and daughter spar about everything from how Belle dresses to her favorite painter, Monet. As they fight and make up over and over again, Belle comes to realize Toni has lured her on this journey to reveal an old secret that threatens to shake her world. To add to her stress, Belle deals with her own motherhood issues as she stays in touch with teen daughter Alyson, who is unhappy over Belle's plans to divorce Alyson's dad, Max. Mother and daughter, daughter and mother make their way through the gardens of their own love stories, encountering thorns that prick and beauty that enriches beyond measure.

THE LAST ROMANTICS by Elizabeth Malin
“Like The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles, The Last Romantics is a layered story that sends you back to the golden age of American literature and forward to the world of contemporary popular literature with the editorial mantra of ‘sex sells.’ Malin deftly brings each of the three stories in The Last Romantics to a successful conclusion that should please all readers.” – Joan Reeves, NY Times & USA Today bestselling author
Three stories, three couples, three intertwined tales of the challenges of requited love:
Kate and Jim: A struggling romance novelist, Kate must deal with an editor pushing her to write steamier books and a husband who decides to dabble in producing his own “art.” But is he really creating something of value or just mocking Kate’s own attempts at becoming a literary artist?
Jake and Belinda: The hero and heroine of Kate’s latest romance novel, this duo faces danger as someone makes an attempt on Belinda’s life while they try to figure out if lust can lead to true love…
Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald: While Kate pens her hot new novel, she discovers a cache of pages penned by a “Beatrice Rutherford,” who appears to have been a typist for the great literary writer and who sheds new light on what really happened to the famous couple. These papers provide Kate with a pathway to greater publishing success, but she questions whether her good fortune is real or fake…
The Last Romantics is a sweet love story, a hot romance, and an inside look at the publishing world, filled with delectable tidbits and juicy details professional writers will especially enjoy. If you enjoy "insider" books such as The Devil Wears Prada, you'll like this behind-the-curtain peek at the publishing industry.
