It's almost time to return to Happily Inc! Why Not Tonight comes out on September 18, and I have open slots on the Review Crew. My 200 Review Crew members get each of my new books for free, and if they post two reviews before the deadline, they keep their spot for the next Review Crew. It's just that easy!
This time around, the Review Crew will get Why Not Tonight (Happily Inc book 3), Ronan Mitchell's story—and you'll be thrilled to hear that Ronan Mitchell returns to Fool's Gold! You might remember that Ronan is the twin who found out he's not a twin, after all. He's the result of his father's affair. Which means the woman he thought was his mother has lied to him all his life.
Why Not Tonight is dedicated to all my readers who wear glasses, and I'm just thrilled that Natalie is wearing her trademark red glasses on the cover. Proving that men really do make passes at girls who wear glasses. At least, Ronan Mitchell does.
Sign up on the CONTEST PAGE at SusanMallery.com for a chance to be on the Review Crew!
With apologies to international readers, Review Crew members must have a U.S. mailing address—but next month, I'll announce the Happily Inc Giveaway Extravaganza, which will be open internationally, with 100 winners!
ABOUT WHY NOT TONIGHT
Happily Inc Book 3
Natalie Kaleta will do anything for the artists at her gallery, including risk life, limb, and the effect of humidity on her naturally curly hair. Braving a downpour to check on reclusive Ronan Mitchell, Natalie gets stranded by a mudslide at his mountain home where the brooding glass artist reveals his playful side, sending her inconvenient crush from under-the-radar to over-the-top.
After a secret tore apart his family and made him question his sense of self, Ronan fled his hometown for Happily Inc, but the sunny small town can't fix his damaged heart. He won't give in to his attraction for beautiful, perpetually cheerful Natalie. She's untouched by darkness—or so he thinks.
Natalie knows that when a heart goes through the flame, it comes out stronger. Life may not be a fairy tale, but sometimes dreams do come true. Why not this one? Why not tonight?
COMING IN OCTOBER
Happily Inc Book 4
Silver Tesdal has a head for business and a mouth made for kissing, and banker Drew Lovato has his eye on both. But ever since he was dumb enough to let her go, she's kept him at a distance. When the bank turns her down for a loan, Drew sees a double opportunity—he can finance her brilliant, unique idea to rock Happily Inc's wedding industry and win back her trust.
Despite her reputation, Silver's not as tough as she seems. Losing Drew nearly destroyed her. Still, his kisses are as tempting as his offer to invest in her business. If she can't quite get over him, maybe she should get under him and knock him out of her system once and for all.
But her best laid plans begin to unravel as Silver finds herself falling even harder than when they were high school sweethearts. Which means that she'll have to come clean about the secret she's been hiding from him for years—and risk losing him forever.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Life is meant to be savored, but that’s not easy with no family, limited prospects and a past you’d rather not talk about. Still, Callie Smith doesn’t know how to feel when she discovers she has a brother and a sister—Malcolm, who grew up with affection, wealth and privilege, and Keira, a streetwise twelve-year-old. Callie doesn’t love being alone, but at least it’s safe. Despite her trepidation, she moves into the grand family home with her siblings and grandfather on the shores of Lake Washington, hoping just maybe this will be the start of a whole new life.
But starting over can be messy. Callie and Keira fit in with each other, but not with their posh new lifestyle, leaving Malcolm feeling like the odd man out in his own home. He was clever enough to turn a sleepy Seattle mail-order food catalog into an online gourmet powerhouse, yet he can’t figure out how to help his new sisters feel secure. Becoming a family will take patience, humor, a little bit of wine and a whole lot of love. But love isn’t Malcolm’s strong suit…until a beautiful barista teaches him that an open heart, like the family table, can always make room for more.
In this emotional, funny and heartfelt story, Susan Mallery masterfully explores the definition of a modern family—blended by surprise, not by choice—and how those complicated relationships can add unexpected richness to life.
