Just One Year is a sweet and romantic story about a girl falling for the exchange student living in her parent's house. I really enjoyed the slow-burn build up of Caleb and Teagan's romance. They started out as enemies, then became friends, then the sexual tension was overwhelming until it exploded! As always, Penelope Ward gives us a twist, something I didn't see coming, but it makes the story that more enjoyable. Real, lovable characters and a sweet love story make this book one you don't want to miss.

"Because as quickly as three months will fly by, it's also an eternity when every second I can't kiss you feels like torture."

"Sex without an orgasm is like a candle without fire. Useless. It doesn't really count."

From The Publisher


The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.

On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.

(The ladies room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)

I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.

So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British guy from the men’s room.

And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.

Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.


Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.

Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us—for so many reasons.

I definitely couldn't fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.

My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom's Jackie Collins novels. I love the steamy romances and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever, it's Chase Abandonato...for now.

I’m a Mom of 2 daughters, 4 cats and a dog, a travel junkie, cruising in particular, and a Disney fanatic. I love all things beach and all things books!
