Publisher’s Synopsis (From its website)

Petra Lale knows her job isn’t sexy. Being an allergist hardly invites enticing conversation (or imagery). But she’s damn proud of the solo practice she’s set up, and will do whatever it takes to make it a success.

Restaurateur Ian Zamora is allergic to his girlfriend’s cat. Wanting to cure his sensitivities, the last thing he expects is the intense attraction between him and his new allergist, Petra.

When Ian’s girlfriend becomes his ex, and Petra no longer needs to treat his allergies, will the two be able to carve time out of their careers to fall in love? Love is nothing to sneeze at, but Petra must decide if Ian is really worth the distraction.

Everyone tells newly divorced social worker Jake that he shouldn’t look for a serious relationship right now. But Jake can’t stay away from Sarah, and despite her complicated past Sarah can’t stop wanting Jake. This is one break that neither of them can make.

Wild Life

Issued under the name Opal Wei.
Toronto: Harlequin: 2024.

Publisher’s Synopsis (From its website)

The Plan was simple: find a cure for the cancer that nearly took her sister’s life. But for Zoey Fong, something about The Plan isn’t working anymore. When a crucial tissue sample accidentally winds up in the hands of a very distracting—and disarmingly handsome—visitor, Zoey jumps at the chance to follow him home to retrieve it.

Davy Hsieh’s rugged island estate is no manicured suburban park. His plan is simple: establish a legitimate animal sanctuary and embrace life as a hermit to make up for a sketchy past. Zoey invading his fortress of solitude should not, under any circumstances, be a romantic development.

And yet it’s the single most invigorating week of their lives…when they’re able to set their many differences aside and embrace it. Stranded amid all manner of flora and fauna—including a semidomesticated cougar called Baby—Davy and Zoey first have to survive the island. Then they’ll need to take a leap of faith, maybe even trusting in each other, to save it.
