Comeback Love by Peter Golden
Synopsis from Goodreads
 
What would you do if you had a second chance with the one that got away?

More than thirty-five years ago, Gordon Meyers, an aspiring writer with a low number in the draft lottery, packed his belongings and reluctantly drove away, leaving behind Glenna Rising, the sexy, sharp-witted med student he couldn’t imagine living without.

Now, decades later, Gordon is a former globe-trotting consultant with a grown son, an ex-wife, and an overwhelming desire to see Glenna again. Though she’s stunned when Gordon walks into her Manhattan office, Glenna agrees to accompany him for a drink. As the two head out into the snow-swept city, they rediscover the passion that once drew them together—before it tore them apart. And as the evening unfolds, Gordon will finally reveal the true reason for his return. . . .

Comeback Love is an evocative journey into the hearts of two lovers who came of age in the 1960s, and who never truly let each other go. Plumbing the depths of youth, regret, and desire, Peter Golden deftly illuminates the bonds that mysteriously endure in the face of momentous change.

The Courtship of Two Doctors by M.H. Fitzgerald
Synopsis from JKS Communications 

From a private collection of nearly 800 courtship letters, the daughter of two remarkable physicians has
crafted a timeless valentine to long-lasting love and the healing profession.
Senior medical students from New Orleans and Omaha meet in 1937 and begin a two-year
correspondence across 1,100 miles. They set their sights on a return to Mayo Clinic, the medical mecca
where they found each other and danced to the haunting “Harbor Lights.” Grave illness and career
setbacks shake their confidence, but the two decide to face an uncertain future together, trusting in each
other and the relationship they built letter by letter.
The Courtship of Two Doctors recreates the medical era before antibiotics, when health workers were
at risk of serious infection, and vividly illustrates the 1930s social barriers challenging two-career
marriages.

The Cracked Slipper by Stephanie Alexander
Synopsis from JKS Communications


When Eleanor Brice unexpectedly wins the heart of Gregory Desmarais, Crown Prince of Cartheigh, she’s sure she’s found her happily-ever-after. Unfortunately, Prince Charming has a loose grip on his temper, a looser grip on his marriage vows, and a tight grip on the bottle.

Eight years of mistreatment, isolation and clandestine book learning hardly prepare Eleanor for life at Eclatant Palace, where women are seen, not heard. According to Eleanor’s eavesdropping parrot, no one at court appreciates her unladylike tendency to voice her opinion. To make matters worse, her royal fiancé spends his last night of bachelorhood on a drunken whoring spree. Before the ink dries on her marriage proclamation Eleanor realizes that she loves her husband’s best friend, former soldier Dorian Finley.

Eleanor can’t resist Dorian’s honesty, or his unusual admiration for her intelligence, and soon both are caught in a dangerous obsession. She drowns her confusion in charitable endeavors, but the people’s love can’t protect her from her feelings. When a magical crime endangers the bond between unicorns, dragons and the royal family, a falsely accused Eleanor must clear her own name to save her life. The road toward vindication will force a choice between hard-won security and an impossible love.

The Memory Thief by Emily Colin
Synopsis from Goodreads

Reminiscent of On Mystic Lake by Kristin Hannah, readers will adore Emily Colin’s unique and beautifully written debut novel, where one man’s promise to return drives an exquisitely passionate, unforgettable tale of love lost and found.

When Madeleine Kimble’s husband Aiden dies in a mountain climbing accident, Maddie can only think of his earnest promise to return to her and their young son. Aiden’s best friend J.C. feels great remorse over his inability to save him, but J.C.’s grief is also seasoned with the guilt of loving Maddie through the years. Meanwhile, across the country another young man wakes up in a hospital and finds that his memories have been wiped clean, and replaced with haunting dreams of a beautiful woman and a five year old boy whom he feels driven to find. What Nicholas Sullivan discovers upon his journey is utterly unexpected—and it will change all of their lives, especially Maddie’s.

Turquoise: A Love Story by Ayshe Talay-Ongan
Synopsis from JKS Communications

Set against transcendent love, unrelenting hatred and loyalties to friends and family,
Turquoise is the story of an enduring and passionate love affair between Yasmin and
Renan, which spans two decades, two marriages and three continents.
Yasmin and her Armenian classmate Ani were oblivious to ethnic differences during their school
years in Istanbul. Years later they run into each other, and Ani introduces Renan, her husband, to
Yasmin. At that moment under the blazing autumn skies, as Yasmin locks eyes with Renan, she
knows that she has come upon her destiny. But political tensions in their land soon force Renan,
her secret love, and his family to immigrate to Sydney.
A few years on, Yasmin's diplomat father is appointed as the Turkish Consul General to Los
Angeles where the family faces a devastating tragedy that will impact their lives in ways
unfathomable. She is now forced to make a choice between passion that defines her and reason
that guides her.
When so much is stacked against Yasmin and Renan, how can love possibly triumph?
