The first three books in the Wardham Series by NYT and USA Today bestselling author Zoe York, have been put together into one delicious bundle!

Title: Welcome to Wardham, The Wardham Series (Three book bundle)
Author: Zoe York
Age: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Welcome to Wardham, a sleepy village ready to explode with new-found passion. This bundle contains the first three titles in The Wardham Series by Zoe York.

Between Then and Now
Their story didn’t start with a fairytale romance. Their marriage wasn’t chosen for love. But they still chose each other, time and again.

Romance is the last thing on Ian's mind. He's juggling the family farm and a second job, his kids are a crazy handful and every time he gets close to his wife, Carrie, she snaps at him. Their relationship has always had a sizzling physical connection, and he needs to find a way to leverage that into reconnecting on a deeper level before it’s too late.

What Once Was Perfect (Book #1)
She shuttered her heart and walked away. Now he has a second chance to get it right.

Kyle and Laney shared a perfect summer 12 years ago, and have never moved past their breakup. Now she’s back for the holidays and they have a chance to work out things out and move on with their lives. But moving on doesn’t make sense when you’ve finally reconnected with the only person you’ve ever truly loved.

Where Their Hearts Collide (Book #2)
The girl next door meets the cop of her dreams at exactly the wrong time.

Karen’s finally decided what she wants to do when she grows up. Too bad it’ll mean leaving behind her new neighbour, who’s stirred up a different kind of grown up feelings. But when he rebuffs her attempt to have a fling before she leaves Wardham, Karen knows it’s for the best. A clean break, no messy emotional entanglements. Too bad Paul’s right next door, and everywhere she goes. And he makes a pretty convincing case for getting entangled.

The Wardham Series continues: pick up When They Weren’t Looking (Book #3), available now, and look for Beyond Love and Hate, a Wardham novella coming in June 2014.

Excerpt from Between Then and Now

“I know what I’ve got. I don’t always show it, but I’m lucky to be your husband, Carrie


 “Best mistake ever?” She meant the words to land lightly. It was a standing joke

between them, but all that had gone unsaid between them over the last few months

weighed the words down on her tongue, and her voice cracked.

 “Don’t do this, not tonight.” His features pinched together. He didn’t let go of her

hand, but the easy softness in his grip faded, replaced with a subtle tension that told her

it was an effort to keep touching her.

 “I’m not doing anything,” she whispered. Tears threatened, hot bubbles at the

edge of her vision.

 “You’re dragging old shit into a new argument. Shit I didn’t even know was in your

head. An argument I didn’t even know we were having.”

 “We’re not!” Were they? Was it all one big fight that just ebbed like the tide? “I

don’t know why I said that.”

 He didn’t answer. He didn’t need to. She tentatively lifted her gaze to read his

expression, but he didn’t look over at her, instead keeping his eyes on the road ahead.

A muscle twitched along his jaw, and she squeezed his hand, willing him to turn and

see her. See that she wasn’t mad. That she was just scared and strangely alone and

not dealing with that well.

 “I don’t think we were a mistake.”

 “Damn straight.”

 “But we weren’t in love when we got married, Ian. That’s never going to be

something I forget.”

 “Never asked you to.”

 “We just can’t talk about it.”

 “We can talk about it, babe. But you can’t yell at me about it.”

 “I didn’t yell.”

 “You cried. That’s worse.”

 “Didn’t cry. No tears.”

 “Sad voice, choked up…sounded like crying. Carrie, that kills me, you know?” He

dragged a deep breath into his lungs. “I just wanted an evening without a fight. Come

on, let’s go in.”

 With a start, she realized they were home. “Wait—” She unbuckled her seat belt

and reached across the center console. “Slide your seat back.”

 “Carrie, I’m not—”

 “Give me a chance to get the mood back, please?” She was grateful she’d worn a

skirt tonight. “Scoot back, and close your eyes.” He still hadn’t moved, but at least he

wasn’t getting out of the truck. “I want to show you what I’ve got on under this skirt.”

 Thank god for his healthy libido. A lecherous grin spread across his face as he

flicked his gaze to her hemline. “Please tell me the answer is nothing.” She waited for

his gaze to hit hers again before offering a slow nod. His already smoldering interest

caught a burst of oxygen from her answer, and while he slid his seat back with his left

hand, his right arm was hauling her into his lap. “We gotta stop fighting, babe.”

 “We weren’t fighting,” she whispered.

 “We were doing something,” he muttered as he arranged her thighs on either side

of his, his thumbs pressing hard into soft flesh. “And it wasn’t this.”
