Thursdays in the Park, by Hilary Boyd. (Still 0.99?)

"Boyd lets you see the world through 60-year-old Jeanie's eyes and reminds you that retirement offers freedom, not the end of the line. Her portrayal of the first true romance of Jeanie's life will captivate both single and married women as her writing instantly takes you back to those moments of true passion that blocked out everything else in the world. This is a story of family responsibilities, true love and life after the big 60." -- Amazon reviewer

Called "a warm and well-written case for love affairs in later life" (Daily Telegraph), Thursdays in the Park was a runaway best-seller in the united Kingdom. Boyd's debut novel is a touching, romantic tale of new attraction and old loyalties.

Jeanie is on the brink of turning sixty, and the man she's been married to for more than half of her life has suddenly abandoned the marital bed. When Jeanie's husband George retreats from his conjugal duties, she is deeply hurt and very confused: Has she done something wrong? Is he in love with someone else? Her pained bewilderment turns to anger as he remains unable, or unwilling, to provide answers. The bright spot of Jeanie's week is Thursday, the day she takes her granddaughter to the park. There, one day, she meets Ray --  age-appropriate, kind-hearted, easygoing, and downright sexy. In short, he is everything that George is not. As her relationship with Ray begins to blossom and she begins to think that her life might hold in store a bold second act, she begins to wonder if she has the courage to take a step off the precipice of routine and duty and into the swirling winds of romance.

Baby, I'm Yours (Life, Love and Babies), by Samantha Chase. (Still 0.99?)

"Loved this story. Nikki and Tyler had one wonderful night together before Nikki left without ever getting his last name. When she ended up pregnant she had to raise her daughter alone. Then three years later her best friend is getting married. When Denise and her fiance come to dinner, it's with the best man, David's brother. Nikki is stunned when it's Tyler, the father of her child. The way they resolve their differences and work out their relationship makes for a great read. Highly recommend." -- Amazon reviewer

One hot night...
Two fake names...
Three years later...

Nicole Taylor thought she was merely hosting a pre-wedding dinner for her best friend. What she ended up with was coming face to face with the man she had shared her one and only wild night with three years earlier. Now had to introduce him to the daughter that he didn't know that he had. Her entire world is about to be turned upside down and she's unsure that she can trust in the hope of a family for her little girl.

Josh Masterson had no idea why he lied that night so long ago. Nicole was everything he had ever wanted in a woman and he had regretted that bad decision for far too long. Now he had the perfect opportunity to make up for it. He had no idea that he had fathered a child with Nicole but now that he did, he wasn't going to just walk away. He had made a mistake three years ago - and now he was determined to show Nicole that there really is such a thing as love at first sight and happily ever after's.
