Penny Reid - When it Counts
Niemand ist ein größerer Überlebenskünstler als Scarlet St. Claire. Ihre Spezialität ist es, aus den Umständen, die sie nicht kontrollieren kann, das Beste herauszuholen.

Billy ist furchtlos, Billy ist diszipliniert und Billy ist ehrlich... außer es geht um Scarlet St. Claire.
Penny Reid - Grin and Beard It
Sienna Diaz is everyone’s favorite “fat” funny lady. The movie studio executives can’t explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood’s most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna. But she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the backroads of Green Valley, Tennessee. Much to her consternation, Sienna’s most frequent savior is a ridiculously handsome, charming, and cheeky Park Ranger by the name of Jethro Winston. Sienna is accustomed to high levels of man-handsome, so it’s not Jethro’s chiseled features or his perfect physique that make Sienna stutter. It’s his southern charm. And gentlemanly manners. And habit of looking at her too long and too often. Sienna has successfully navigated the labyrinth of Hollywood heart-throbs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head? Or worse, her heart?
Penny Reid - Marriage of Inconvenience
There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She's determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit. Being a billionaire heiress isn't all it's cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family's legacy. But now, Kat's silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy. Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O'Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity―and heart―all in one piece. Except, what happens when Dan O'Malley isn't as indifferent―or as trustworthy―as she thought?

Penny Reid - Whatever you want
Beau Winston ist wirklich der netteste und charmanteste Typ der Welt. Normalerweise. Denn obwohl er der beliebteste Winston in Green Valley ist, ist sein Leben neuerdings ein Spießrutenlauf. Und das liegt nur an der Frau, die sein Bruder als neue Mechanikerin in der gemeinsamen Autowerkstatt eingestellt hat. Shelly Sullivan ist niemals nett und schon gar nicht charmant. Sie beendet keine Unterhaltung ohne bissige Bemerkung und ist sowieso eher ein Tier- als Menschenfreund. Beau will sie raus seinem Laden, raus aus Tennessee und raus aus seinem Leben haben.

Und einmal hinter die Fassade geblickt, kann Beau nicht mehr wegschauen.
L. H. Cosway - Penny Reid - The Player and the Pixie
Now a USA TODAY BESTSELLER How can someone so smokin’ hot be so bad in bed? I mean, Sean Cassidy is absolute rubbish. RUBBISH. He is the epitome of walking, talking false advertising and I want a refund! Plus he’s an arsehole. So… what is wrong with me that I can’t stop thinking about him? THE PIXIE Lucy Fitzpatrick doesn’t like rugby. As the little sister of Ireland’s most infamous rugby player, Lucy can’t seem to escape the championship-sized shadow cast by her big brother, or her mother’s frequent attempts to micromanage her future. Her rainbow hair is as free-spirited as her quest for inner peace, yet overbearing expectations keep bringing her down. And when she’s down, her compulsive little problem lands her in seriously big trouble. THE PLAYER Sean Cassidy is a cold-hearted brute… or so he’s been told. Frequently. By everyone. His blonde locks, baby blues, and rock hard bod make ladies the world over drool with desire. As the rugby world’s second most infamous player, he should be basking in his success. But Sean has never been content settling for second place, and his frequent confrontations with Lucy’s big brother leave him cold. And when he’s cold, his compulsive little problem lands him in the lap of Lucy Fitzpatrick. THE PLAN Sean has a problem only Lucy can solve. Lucy has a problem only Sean can fix. The solution seems obvious: you scratch my back, and I’ll bail you out of jail. But when their business arrangement unexpectedly leaves Sean scorching hot and Lucy on the precipice of inner peace, can they convince the world—and Lucy’s big brother in particular—that this is the real deal? Either way, both the Player and the Pixie are about to teach each other some pretty monumental lessons about family, life, but most importantly, love.
L. H. Cosway - Penny Reid - The Cad and the Co-Ed
Keeping a secret this big is going to take lots of balls. Specifically, rugby balls. THE CAD Bryan Leech is a cad. Or, he *was* a cad. No one is quite certain. Once the quintessential playboy, Bryan claims he’s done with wild parties and weekend benders. No more one night stands leading to mornings he can’t remember; no more binges and blackouts; no more exploits plastered all over the tabloids and rag sheets. According to Bryan, he’s cleaning up his act. The only problem is, no one believes him. THE CO-ED Eilish Cassidy never thought she’d be a mother at nineteen or still in college at twenty-four. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she’s finally managed put her life back together. Stronger and wiser, Eilish enters her last semester of university determined to stand on her own. Now she just needs to find an internship. The only problem is, her best option—by far—places her directly in the path of her son’s father, and he doesn’t remember her at all.

But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket. Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever. She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words. Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life. The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean missing out on what matters most.

Penny Reid - Truth or Beard
Ikrek, szakálluk van, motoroznak… Ajjaj! Jessica, az eminens, józan életű lány amióta csak az eszét tudja, Beau-ba szerelmes. A fiú szívdöglesztően néz ki, mindig barátságos vele, és ha rá mosolyog, Jessicát elhagyja minden ereje. Ikertestvérét, Duane-t viszont egészen más fából faragták. A zárkózott, csendes fiúnak már a jelenléte is idegesíti a lányt, utálja, amióta csak ismeri, és biztos benne, hogy az érzés kölcsönös. Csakhogy az egypetéjű ikrekkel olykor előfordul, hogy összekeverik őket, és Jessica döbbenten fedezi fel, hogy aki olyan forrón és hevesen ölelte a halloweeni buliban, távolról sem álmai hercege volt. De akkor vajon miért tűnt mégis olyan élvezetesnek az az este?
