Operation Valentine by Sarah Fischer & Kelsey McKnight

She’s determined to play Cupid, but will her arrow go astray?

Nat Keller has worked at upstate New York’s Hazel Oaks Resort her entire adult life, dedicating herself to the lakeside lodge she considers home. After moving constantly as a child, planting roots and showcasing her organizational skills as the resort’s Head Concierge is her dream job. When she’s tasked with helping a married couple rekindle their romance, she’s excited to prove herself until she learns she'll be working with a partner.

Lead Adventure Coordinator Hudson Dougal has never stayed in one place for long. He’s worked at Hazel Oaks for nearly a year and is contemplating his next big move when he’s asked to work with the only woman who seems to be immune to his charm. Always up for a challenge, Hudson accepts.

Soon, Nat and Hudson are igniting more than just a stale marriage. But just as Hudson wonders if roots have a purpose, he receives another opportunity. Will love be enough of an adventure to convince him to stay?

A Holiday Peak Valentine by Candace Havens

Smart and nerdy Cara Mendoza loves books, and makes sure her bookstore, The Novel Place, is stocked with some of the latest best sellers along with the classics. She has a not-so-secret penchant for romance novels, and in her mind, the hero is always played by former NFL player and her favorite high school quarterback Jones McBride. But book boyfriends don't disappoint, and she's determined to keep it that way. So what if she ends up a spinster with ninety-eight cats?

The last place Jones ever thought he'd end up was Holiday Peak. But when his pro-career ended due to a knee injury, and his dad got sick, it ended up being a haven. After eight months back, he's started really enjoying his second love, which is cooking. Changing up the menu at the family diner and seeing what the town thinks of his creations is fun for him. They've even started asking him to cater many of the town's celebration.

Which is how he ends up spending time with the quiet beauty Cara. The more he gets to know her, and peels back those layers she surrounds herself with; the more intrigued he becomes. There's no way he's ever going to live up to her idea of a romantic hero, but that doesn't keep him from wanting to try.

The Valentine's Date Mistake by Cassandra Shiels

Melissa understands numbers. 1+1 always equals 2. But when it comes to dating things never seem to add up.

The last thing Melissa wants is to spend another Valentine's day alone, but that doesn't mean she wants to get set up either. When the principal asks her to help supervise the sophomore class presidency plan their Valentine's Day dance, she decides there’s no way she’ll become the lame teacher who shows up without a date to the dance. Desperate, but against her better judgment, she allows her friend, Prissy, to sign her up for a dating website.

Landon doesn’t have time in his life for anything extra—especially online dating. When a new match comes his way, he can’t help but wonder if she’s worth giving a chance? That is, if he can fit it in with his day job, his own schooling, and planning the school's Valentine’s day dance with the sophomore class and the irritable Ms. Melissa Jackson.

Puppy Dog Tales by Liwen Y. Ho

An animal hater's and an animal lover’s paths collide the week leading up to Valentine’s Day.

Melvin Lai inherited the last thing he ever wanted from his favorite uncle: a cocker spaniel. Now he’s on the verge of losing his home to the unruly puppy and, much to his surprise, his heart when he meets Dr. Chu, Sparkle’s vet.

Vivian Chu loves caring for her furry friends, so she can’t fathom how anyone could think poorly of her new patient, especially his owner. To her, first impressions are everything, and the one Melvin left has her feeling disheartened and bruised—literally.

He longs to make her his Valentine; she can’t wait to escape him. It’s going to take a miracle for Melvin to win Vivian’s heart, but nothing’s impossible when four-legged conspirators are involved.

Candlelight and Pancakes

Two strangers snowed in together facing two storms: the weather and an ex-fiancee

To escape Valentine's Day and all of it's trimmings, Melody decides a weekend away by herself is just what she needs. However, she didn't expect to ride out a snowstorm with the inn's owner.

Zander, the owner of Sugar Plum Inn, was surprised when Melody arrived demanding she'd made reservations. With dangerous weather approaching, he decides to let her stay.
