Pride and Precipitation (Chick Flick Clique Romantic Comedy #1) by Heather Horrocks

PG-RATED FUN that’s been professionally edited. Pride and Precipitation is #1 of the Chick Flick Clique romantic comedy series and Book #2 is Regally Blonde. Written by USA Today Bestselling Author Heather Horrocks. PRIDE AND PRECIPITATION (Chick Flick Clique #1) Breezy Jones is crazy about the weather, rain or shine, which makes her job as the local television station’s meteorologist perfect. She’s even hoping the new buyers of her Aspen Grove station will make some positive changes. That’s before she meets the attractive new general manager, Noah Drake, who is determined to repackage everything—including Breezy’s down-home delivery and casual, girl-next-door appearance that seems too Pollyanna for him. He replaces her with a high-powered diva weathercaster and makes Breezy her off-screen assistant. With a flood of angry emails from the community, plummeting ratings, and incessant demands from the diva, it doesn’t take long for Noah to see which way the wind is blowing. Will the station survive the competitive clash between pride and precipitation? More importantly, can their blossoming attraction survive? This is a novella of about 170 pages. The paperback version will be available soon. NEW RELEASES: If you enjoyed this book, consider signing up for my new releases email list! Just visit www.BooksByHeatherHorrocks.com. 5-STAR REVIEW: Jennifer English Rose Reviews Clean Romances – Oct 10, 2012 This was a cute story with some ties to that Austen classic which the title reminds us of. A fun, light trip through small-town news, this book pulled you into the story. With several fun side characters, the story left itself open for many other interlocked stories. With a fun plot and sweet characters, it’s a refreshing bit of fun and sweet romance. This one made me smile and definitely made me laugh at several points. With a quick wit and some good conflict, the characters had me falling in love along with them. Definitely a good book to take on vacation or snuggle up on a cold winter night.

Claiming Victory: A Romantic Comedy (The Dartmouth Diaries Book 1) by Beverley Watts

Claiming Victory is a funny contemporary romantic comedy that will appeal to every woman who still believes fairy tales can come true…

…”So let me get this straight Admiral. Your plan is to somehow get the most famous actor in the world, to fall in love with your daughter Victory, who we both love dearly, but – and please don’t take offence Sir – who you yourself admit is built generously across the aft, and whose face is unlikely to launch the Dartmouth ferry, let alone a thousand ships…”

Victory Shackleford is a spinster, or at least well on the way to becoming one. She is thirty two years old, still lives with her father – an eccentric retired Admiral, and the love of her life is a dog.
She thinks her father is reckless, irresponsible, and totally incapable of looking after himself. He thinks his daughter is a boring nagging harpy with no imagination or sense of adventure and what’s more, he’s determined to get her married off.
Unfortunately there’s no one in the picturesque yachting town of Dartmouth that Tory is remotely interested in, despite her father’s best efforts.
But all that is about to change when she discovers that her madcap father has rented out their house as a location shoot for the biggest blockbuster of the year. As cast and crew descend, Tory’s humdrum orderly existence is turned completely upside down, especially as the lead actor has just been voted the sexiest man on the planet…

Full of romantic humour, Claiming Victory is a must for fans of funny love stories – especially quirky British Romantic comedies.
