When the house of cards her father had built came tumbling down, Morgan fled town and the backlash. Now, she's stuck in Harmony Falls after a childhood bank account turns out to be empty. Even more shocking, the child she intended to place for adoption rather than cause more scandal is at her side.As the son of the town drunk, life hasn't always been easy for Charlie Cramer. Maybe that's why he's holding on to his own sobriety and his brand-new restaurant so tightly - too tightly if his grouchiness and control-freak tendencies in the kitchen are any indication. To make matters worse, Morgan Parrish is back in town ... and she has a surprise for him. He's a daddy! Can he face the truth and not lose the stability he's worked so hard to achieve these last three years?When a staff shortage ends up with Morgan waitressing at the bistro five nights a week, old feelings come to a boil.

Five of Hearts

by Jennifer Decuir

Dean was looking for a quiet place to put down new roots and leave the craziness of his old celebrity life behind him. His new house, on a rocky bluff overlooking the Atlantic, seems ideal.

Her mother raised her alone and after her ex-husband deserted her upon learning they weren't having one baby but three at once, she was doing the single mom routine with her own triplets. Sure it got lonely being out here on the bluff, away from the rest of Scallop Shores. So she may have been a tad excited to learn someone had bought the house next door. Until that someone moved in. Looking more delicious than any man had a right to, Shannon wanted to ignore him. But her new neighbor was hiding something, and she was intrigued.Years ago, as lead singer for the boy band Five of Hearts, Dean learned that women only wanted him for his money and fame.

But the closer he gets to Shannon and her children, the more he realizes he may have made a mistake in keeping the truth from them. Because a relationship requires honesty and trust to make it work. Was it too late to stop hiding and start doing a little trusting of his own?Sensuality Level: Sensual
