For my entire life I’ve wanted to become a chart-topping musician. But a random dive bar gig changed all of that. 

 I never would have guessed a mysterious girl in pajamas could’ve caught my attention, but she did and I can’t seem to shake her.  

 When fate intervenes and I get the chance to truly know Olivia, she quickly becomes the woman behind my lyrics.  

 My plan is to make her mine, until one-night leaves me in the dark.   

 She claims she loves me, but words aren’t as true as actions. Can Olivia show me love, or will I forever be stuck singing songs about a girl that isn’t mine?

When she meets Cash Knight, lead singer for Rebel Desire, in her pajamas at a Nashville bar while rescuing her cousin, she isn’t fazed by his good looks or charming smile. However, Cash is determined to get her attention and meet the confident woman who stormed into the bar and his life. Knowing Olivia will be at Country Fest, a country music festival where Rebel Desire is playing, he calls on stage the brunette woman with blue eyes he met the week before, asking the audience to help him spot her while he performs a new song inspired by her. After the festival, dragged by her cousin and best friend, Olivia faces Cash at a nearby bar, angrily calling him out, but as they get to know each other, their connection becomes stronger. While Olivia and Cash begin to build a relationship and Rebel Desire grows in the music industry, Nathan, Olivia’s ex-boyfriend, becomes jealous of their relationship and begins to sabotage it.

First, he approaches Cash pretending he is a fan and asks him to sign their CD for his girlfriend, Olivia and then continues to interfere, going as far as threatening Olivia to share intimate photos of their time together with the media if she doesn’t break up with Cash. Protecting Cash and herself, Olivia breaks both of their hearts without an explanation as Cash goes on his first tour. As Nathan’s threats become more serious, Olivia decides to take action against his harassment, finally defeating him and destroying the evidence he held per court order. Feeling as she can finally explain it all to Cash, they met again where they begin to rebuild their relationship. When Nathan appears one last time while Cash and Olivia are at a bar, Cash calls him out and the fans in the crowd recognize him from his hateful social media comments.

Blurb: 
What’s a girl to do after burning all of her no-good, cheating boyfriend’s belongings? Throw a dart at a map and start over in a new town. 

I may be new to the small town of Everton, but I’m well aware that I now share a zip code with a celebrity. You’d have to be living under a rock to not know, Knox Bentley, one of country music’s biggest stars.  

When Knox wanders into my bar— careful brown eyes and broody attitude—I can’t tear my gaze away. A cheating scandal fresh on his heels is just one reason I should stay far, far away, but the closer we get, the more I realize he’s not at all what I imagined. 

But being a famous musician comes with unwanted attention…the kind that tears people apart, and now it’s becoming too painful to stay by his side. 

They say love is a choice, but so is leaving…  

Summary:  
Country music star Knox Bentley is in the middle of a scandalous divorce when he moves back home to the small-town of Everton, Wyoming to reflect on his life and career. His marriage to pop star Amelia was set-up by his publicist, and was never a real marriage. Now, faced with a pending divorce and a tight-gripped contract with his music label, he fights to free himself from anything that will keep him hostage to terms that he no longer wants to live by. Feeling guilty for hurting the woman he loved years ago to marry a woman he knew nothing about in order to advance career, he vows never to put himself in that position again. Ainsley Harding moved to Everton after learning about her boyfriend’s infidelities. Needing a change of scenery and break from her career, she begins working at a bar in town. When Knox walks into her bar, Ainsley becomes curious about the celebrity taking space in all the tabloids.  

An unexpected friendship begins as Knox negotiates out of his contract with the label and puts an end to his marriage, promising to keep the truth about his fake marriage a secret if granted what he wants. The more time they spend together, the more both Knox and Ainsley begin to have feelings for each other. Knox finally succeeds in getting his divorce and ending his ties with the music label, allowing him and Ainsley to have a relationship. As the media catches wind of their romance, Ainsley is blamed for Knox’s failed marriage. Since he agreed not to expose the truth behind his marriage, he feels helpless in protecting Ainsley from the media that is now following her every move. Their relationship suffers as a result, creating friction and tearing them apart. Unable to deal with the lies, Knox schedules an interview with a magazine, ready to defend Ainsley. He is then contacted by Amelia, who has decided to share with the media that her marriage to Knox was a publicity stunt, in order for all of them to live in peace. Knox and Ainsley reconcile, working through their concerns, and he decides to open a small music label with his manager. After a few months, Knox proposes to Ainsley.

Lia Montgomery has been my best friend since we were kids, but when she moves back to our hometown, we can’t ignore the chemistry between us. And I’ve come up with a plan to make her mine.

First on the list? Make her my roommate. 

It seems like a great idea at the time, but one look at her in those little pajama shorts and a thin tee shirt, and all I want to do is throw her over my shoulder, caveman style.

Screw the plan.

A simple dare changes everything between us. But when I’m challenged to do the one thing that could tear us apart forever, I realize there’s more at risk than just my heart.

When she reconnects with her lifelong best friend, Axel Bentley, the same chemistry that existed between them since they were young is still present. Finally living in the same town gives them the opportunity to explore the possibility of a relationship. When Lia is unsuccessful in finding a place to live in Everton, Axel offers her to move into the spare bedroom in his ranch house. Axel needs help with a mare he bought for his ranch that is having trouble adjusting to her new home, and Lia steps in to help. As Axel and Lia spend more time together, the building tension is too hard to ignore, and Lia dares Axel to kiss her one evening.

Their relationship begins to grow the way both have always wanted. When one of Axel’s clients taunts him about competing in the rodeo with the new mare, Axel turns him down. It’s the one thing he and Lia have disagreed on, with Axel forfeiting his first adult competition when he was eighteen, so not to cause strain on their friendship. Regardless, word spreads around town that Axel will be competing, and another neighbor publicly challenges him to enter the rodeo. Axel accepts the challenge, feeling the pressure of the town and guilt from forfeiting years ago. After watching Axel practice on the untrusting mare and getting hurt, Lia can’t stand to watch him put himself in danger. She moves out of the house, breaking up with Axel. Having lost Lia, Axel is determined to prove the town that he’s capable of winning the rodeo so it wouldn’t have been in vain. While he’s practicing one evening, the mare bucks and throws him off, just as Lia is arriving at the ranch to tell him she will support him. Axel sprains his shoulder and gets a concussion, making it impossible to compete. He and Lia are able to work through their differences, and Axel asks her to move back in as his girlfriend, not just a roommate.

I’ve gotten into my fair share of awkward situations… Although, asking a random stranger to be my fake boyfriend is by far the worst.

In my defense, it was an act of desperation. An act that I hope will keep away the men in town who see me as their ticket to becoming the mayor’s son-in-law.

But I have a plan.

1. Date my fake boyfriend long enough for the news to spread across town.

2. Have a very public breakup that leaves me too heartbroken to move on.

3. Continue living my happily single life.

There’s only one problem… Harris wasn’t supposed to be the kind of man I’ve always wanted.

Our breakup is public all right, and the heartbreak is real.

How do you screw up your life in three steps? Easy. 

Step one: Graduate from college with no prospective jobs lined up. 

Step two: Move back home with your parents because no job unfortunately equals no money. 

Step three: Forget to Facebook stalk the guy who broke your heart before accepting a job in a town that has a smaller population than a frat party on a Wednesday night. 

I could quit but living with my parents forever didn’t seem like a solid life plan. 

Jase Hale was the golden boy. Our boss thought he was beyond talented. The receptionist sent him more flirty smiles and baked goods than was considered normal for a woman old enough to be his mom. 

I tried to avoid him and his undeniable charm at all costs. 

He did everything he could to get under my skin. 

Every encounter left me reeling. 

Every smirk made my stomach flip. 

I assumed he was playing with me, just pushing my buttons like always, but when he lifted me onto my desk and shut me up with his lips on mine, I was more confused than ever. 

It didn’t matter that he was trying to prove me wrong. Having my heart broken by the same jerk twice in one lifetime wasn’t an option. 

He only got one shot with me, and he sure as hell didn’t order a double.

When Sophie Moore graduates college with an architecture degree and no prospective job offers, she is forced to return to her hometown and move back in with her parents. Sophie’s brother, Tucker, helps land her a job interview with his friend, Jase Hale. It doesn’t matter that Jase broke her heart when she was eighteen years old, or that she has barely spoken to him since that day. She can’t live with her parents forever, and working for Jase is her only opportunity to work in architecture in her small town. After a tense interview, where Sophie can’t help but show her pent up feelings for Jase, Jase surprises her by offering her a position. Her plan is solid—go to work, do her job, and avoid Jase Hale at all costs. It works, for a while. But the team leader who Jase assigned her to is worse than the man himself, and when Jase offers his help, Sophie’s resolve against him begins to crack. They make a simple pact—leave their past behind them and only bring work to the office, but that pact is broken as soon as Jase pushes her against his desk.

Jase Hale is beyond off limits—he’s her brother’s best friend, he’s her boss, and he’s the boy who broke her heart, but she can’t stay away. Just when Jase takes a risk with Tucker and the owner of their company for her, he finds out that Sophie accepted a position at a different architecture firm half way across the country. Jase doesn’t give Sophie a chance to explain, and everything seems to be falling apart—until Sophie shows up at work when she should already be in Seattle. Even after everything, neither Jase nor Sophie are ready to give up on each other, and they discover that sometimes the second chance is better than the first.

Blurb:
It was a bad idea from the beginning. 

He was my brother’s best friend and the definition of unavailable.

But I didn’t care. I had loved him for as long as I could remember. 

He was worth the risk. He was worth everything. 

But then he broke my heart as easily as I fell for him. 

He watched me fall, spiraling out of control, and as I reached for him, he wasn’t there to catch me. 

So I ran. 

Four years later, I never expected to see him again. 

He was still my brother’s best friend, and he was more unavailable than ever. 

He looked every bit the bad boy I knew he was, covered in tattoos and a crooked smile.

Guarding my heart from him was top priority because Parker James was where good girls go to die.

Unfortunately for him, I wasn’t a good girl anymore.

Summary:
Livy Connor hadn’t Parker since she left home four years ago, after he broke her heart, and he was the last person she expected to see as her body slid around the pole. He was angry, but he had no right to be. Her brother, who stood next to him, was a different story. They were celebrating Parker’s bachelor party—a bachelor party for a wedding that she used to imagine would one day be hers.

When Livy’s brother convinced her to come back home to Tennessee, Livy accepted a job with his friend at a local tattoo shop. What Livy didn’t know was that Parker co-owned the shop. Livy tried to avoid Parker as much as she could, but neither her nor Parker could deny the old feelings that began to surface. Where Good Girls Go to Die gives a glimpse of Parker and Livy’s past along with their future. We watch as Livy struggles to forgive Parker, while Parker battles to choose between the girl he asked to marry him and the girl he never stopped loving. For Parker and Livy, their first love becomes bigger than everything else.

2. Always run before the feels become contagious. 

3. No matter what, under no circumstances, never fall in love.

I ate leftover cupcakes and cracked macarons for breakfast. 

I was ninety percent sure he simply ate up girls like me. 

I was covered in paint splatters, cake batter, and sweat the first time I met him. 

He was covered in badass tattoos and a smile that seemed to hold a secret I would never figure out. 

Rule number 1 was never, under any circumstances, fall for the man who I wrote my lease check to.

So, I tucked him away in the “Fantasize Only” compartment of my brain and called it a day. 

But he didn’t make it easy. 

He was arrogant, funny, and the biggest flirt I had ever met. 

Most of the time, I didn’t know if I was just a game to him. 

If I didn’t know better, I’d say he was on a mission to ruin my life. 

And maybe my heart, too.

One of Brandon’s exes gets in Charlie’s head when she tells her that Brandon doesn’t do anything other casual. Charlie lets her insecurities take over and pushes Brandon away.

The summer before my senior year of high school I had only one goal: to make Alden Warner see me as more than his best friend’s annoying little sister.

Finally, my wish came true and he noticed me. In a big way. Too bad that the next morning he had no memory of our night together, leaving me heartbroken, and as I later discovered…pregnant.

For the last four years, I’ve been rocking the single mom thing, making sure my daughter comes first. In fact, everything is going fine—until Alden storms back into my life, as my new boss.

His reappearance wasn’t something I planned for. Add my nosy, meddlesome three-year-old and an overprotective brother, and I’m obviously in way over my head.

My only hope now is that I can sway Alden to see things my way…but you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Heartbreak. 
Laughter. 
No matter how small, each moment has value. 
 
Then there are the big moments.  
The moments that define us.  
And the people who shape our very existence. 
 
Abel Collins is that person for me.  
From the very first time our eyes locked, I knew there was something about him.  
That he was the person that would change everything. 
And he did. 
 
But Abel isn’t just any man… 
 
His past is his prison. 
His guilt keeps him chained. 
His grief defines him. 
 
And now it’s up to me to set him free.  
To make him see that life isn’t just about what we’ve lost but what we still stand to gain. 
 
Because it’s not about what came before, but what comes after. 

Summary:  
Three years ago, Abel Collins lost the love of his life, Finley, to a malignant brain tumor. He spent the months following her death hiding out in California, unable to form any real connection to anyone or anything. Finally deciding to return home to Chicago for his younger brother’s wedding, Abel is forced to face the world that he left behind so long ago. Haunted by the memories of the love he lost, he’s a shell of his former self. But all of that changes the night he meets Peyton. Quick witted and not afraid to go after what she wants, Peyton brings out a side of Abel he had forgotten was even there, and it doesn’t take long before feelings begin to form between the two.  

Just as Abel starts to believe that maybe there is life for him beyond Finley, Peyton is in a car accident, forcing Abel to once again come face to face with the possibility of losing someone he loves. When he finds out Peyton is okay, instead of going to her the way he wants to, he runs. He lets his fear guide him away, convinced that it’s easier to lose her this way than to lose her the way he lost Finley. It isn’t long before he realizes his mistake. With the help of Claire, Finley’s sister, Abel finds the strength to do what he couldn’t do before—to let go of the pain of his past and finally begin to see hope for the future. Weeks after leaving Peyton, he shows up and explains his actions, apologizes, and professes his love for her. She forgives him. The story ends two years later; Abel and Peyton have been married for six months, and are pregnant with a little girl who will have the middle name Finley.

They say everything happens for a reason- that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. For the longest time I didn’t think that was true. I had stumbled around in the dark for so many years that I didn’t think I would ever find my way out. But when I finally did, it came in the most unexpected way.

Miles Hollins had been my brother’s best friend for as long as I could remember. We didn’t like each other much growing up. Or rather, we couldn’t stand each other. But after ten years of being gone, a lot had changed.

He wasn’t the same boy I remembered. I wasn’t the same girl either. So much had happened.

I moved away and got married.

Miles joined the military.

We both returned home broken in our own way.

I struggled to find my place in my new life. Miles struggled just to get through the day. But together we slowly began to heal. I quieted his demons and he gave me a sense of belonging. For a while that was enough.

But this is real life, and in real life nothing stays perfect forever. In real life not every story ends with a happily ever after. Sometimes the scars we carry are just too deep.

I promised him I would fight.

He promised me I would lose.

I’ll do everything in my power to prove him wrong. Because it’s when you find the one thing you can’t live without, that you truly find yourself.

Blurb:
I remember the very first time I laid eyes on Cole Lincoln. It still feels like yesterday when he stumbled into my life with his messy brown hair and dark eyes. Even though I was only ten years old at the time, I knew right then and there that he was going to change everything.

From that point on Cole and I were always together—inseparable—and I naively believed we’d be best friends forever. But forever didn’t last nearly as long as I expected.

We grew up and grew apart, life driving the distance between us, but my love for Cole never faltered. Even long after he moved away, leaving me and our little town behind, I still carried a piece of him with me every single day. Because Cole wasn’t just my childhood best friend- the boy who knew me better than anyone else in the whole world. He was also my first love- a part of my very core.

When a tragic death brings us face to face again after six years, every single memory comes rushing to the surface. Only this is not the boy I fell in love with all those years ago. The man before me is hardened, intimidating, and so damn sexy I practically melt when those dark eyes meet mine for the first time in six years.

And like the first time he walked into my life, I know with complete certainty that everything is about to change.

Summary:
Melanie and Cole were best friends from the time they were ten years old. Growing up, they each harbored secret feelings for the other, but they never acted on them.

They lose contact after he leaves. Melanie stays in their hometown, caring for her dying mother and raising her two younger brothers. When a friend’s death brings Cole back to town six years after he left, he knows he won’t be able to leave a second time without Melanie. Unfortunately, she has a boyfriend.

However, when they spend some time together while he’s in town, Melanie confesses that she can’t see a future with her boyfriend. Cole tells her that he’s her future, and invites her to spend a weekend with him in the city. After Melanie’s boyfriend takes a new job hours away without discussing it with her, she ends things. She shows up on Cole’s doorstep and they begin a steamy and sweet relationship. Within a few months, Cole asks her to move in with him. The last night in her hometown, Melanie hikes to visit the fort they built as kids, and she falls trying to rescue a kitten. Cole finds her the next morning, unconscious and suffering from hypothermia. She is unconscious for days, and Cole is terrified that she is going to die. She finally wakes up, and Cole tells her she is his heart, and that he has loved her since he first met her. They move in together, and soon are engaged.

Blurb:
You never get over your first love. It’s something I’ve heard countless times. Like someone has to point out that your pain will never go away. That your shattered heart will never mend.

Because that’s exactly what my heart did the day I watched Asher Evans board that train- it shattered, splintering into a million tiny fragments that I didn’t think I’d ever be able to piece back together. He was the boy I had loved since I understood what loving someone meant. The one who knew me inside and out. The one who swore he’d never let me go. It’s been six years since that day and even now the memory haunts me like it was yesterday.

I’ve done my best to move on, to rebuild, and for the most part I’ve done pretty well. But all of that comes crashing down when Asher strolls back into town like he never left.

I don’t want to want him. I certainly don’t want to need him. But that doesn’t stop me from doing it anyway. Only things are different now. I’m different. I’m not the girl he left behind all those years ago. I may have been foolish enough to give him my heart once but I won’t make that mistake a second time. Or at least that’s what I tell myself until I’m standing face to face with the one man who has the power to break me all over again.

Summary:
Blakely and Asher grew up as best friends and eventually became something more. After losing his father—the only family he has left—to cancer, Asher decides he needs to leave town for a while. Though he initially only plans to be gone a few weeks, once he leaves, he doesn’t want to go back. A few weeks turns into six years—six years in which Blakely has been left in the dark. He didn’t write. He didn’t call. And eventually, she had no choice but to move on. It’s a slow process, but she finds the will to pick herself up and piece her life back together without Asher.

When Asher returns home after six years, he finds Blakely engaged to another man. While he realizes he’s the one that left, he refuses to just stand by and let another man have what has always been his. Asher is determined to win Blakely back. Blakely is determined to stay true to her fiancé and not let Asher Evans ruin her life for a second time. But when it comes to Asher, Blakely is not as strong as she wishes she was, and, eventually, her walls start to crumble. Faced with a decision that will determine the rest of her life, Blakely ultimately realizes—on her wedding day—that Asher is who she’s always meant to be with.

Kane encourages her to let of the guilt. The next day, he is gone, back to his life in Chicago. Two months later, Elara decides to move away from her aunt’s house, where she lived during college to be close to Kam. On her way out of town, she visits Kam’s gravesite and is shocked to find Kane there. He tells her that she is running away, and confesses that he feels guilt over how he feels for her, when she should be with his brother. On a whim, he invites her to go to Italy with him, but she refuses, saying he’s nuts for thinking she would go when they barely know each other. Days later, she’s agreed to spend four weeks in Italy with Kane. While in Italy, the two grow closer, and eventually fall into bed together. Elara realizes that she wasn’t in love with Kam, however much she may have loved him, because what she feels for Kane is much more intense. They spend a total of eight weeks in Italy in complete bliss.

Back in Chicago, Elara has a miscarriage, and didn’t know she was pregnant, because she had been told she was infertile. She is devastated and pushes Kane away.

The epilogue shows Kane at Kam’s gravesite several years later, talking to his brother. He and Elara are married, they have an infant son named Kamden, and they live in Italy. Kane acknowledges that none of this could have happened with Kam.

Blurb:
It only takes one night—one moment, one small snippet of time—to change everything. At sixteen-years-old, Sebastian Baxter taught me that. He taught me a lot of things.

He never had to work for my heart. In some unexplainable way I think it had always belonged to him anyway.

We spent years loving each other, hurting each other, trying to forget each other, but no matter how hard I tried, I could never erase the memory of him. His eyes, his smile, his touch—these are all things that are embedded in my brain, tattooed on my skin, and etched into my heart.

Some might think our love story is over, but deep down I know it’s only just beginning.

Because it’s not about where the night begins, it’s about where it ends…

Summary:
Tess has one goal through high school—to get into Columbia. She rarely goes to parties, but is dragged to one by her friends at the beginning of her junior year. There, she meets Sebastian, a rich, popular football player she’s always crushed on from afar. They fall in love over the school year, but everything falls apart before prom, when Tess finds out he’s accepted a full scholarship for football at LSU and hasn’t told her about it yet. She knows that it’s his dream, but struggles with how they will survive the long distance between Connecticut, where she still has one year of high school left, and Louisiana. When Sebastian realizes that she would give up Columbia and settle for LSU to be near him, he ends things, saying he can’t be responsible for her not chasing her dreams. They both are devastated, but carry on without each other.

A year later, on the night of Tess’s senior prom, they have a tearful reunion. Sebastian says he’s never stopped loving her, and that somehow they could make it work, but Tess says no—she’s heading to Columbia, and he’s still at LSU. Two years later, Sebastian has graduated college and goes to see Tess in New York before moving to California for a job. To his surprise, she has a boyfriend, Bennett. Tess admits that she still loves Sebastian, but she loves Bennett, too. Sebastian asks her to be with him instead, but she says no, in part because they will be on opposite coasts. One year later, Sebastian shows up at Tess’s graduation party, hoping that it’s finally the right time for them—but he witnesses Bennett proposing to Tess. Sebastian leaves after Tess says yes. Tess finds Sebastian later that day, and he begs her to be with him instead of Bennett. Tess says she can’t hurt Bennett like that. Sebastian tells her he’s done chasing her, and done fighting for their love. Back in New York, Tess has a moment of clarity, and knows exactly what she wants. She breaks up with Bennett, flies to California, and shows up at Sebastian’s apartment. She tells him that he’s always had her heart, and that they can finally be together. The epilogue shows them six months later, as they are preparing for their wedding.

Roses are red.

Forget everything good you’ve been told about love,

You don’t agree?  

Spend a day in my shoes and you’d curse love too. 

My name’s Blue.  

Yes, you read that right. Blue Daniels.  

And I hate love. 

I despise every single thing about it. 

In my thirty-two years on this earth it has brought me nothing but heartbreak and disappointment.  

Love is a void. Something we’re taught we need if we want to live a happy and fulfilled life.  

Well I disagree.  

Some say I’m a cynic. Other’s call me the smartest woman they’ve ever met. 

But no matter what anyone says, I know what I need. And love is not it. 

Enter Harris Avery. 

A man who thinks he can have anyone he wants, including me. 

A man who reminds me daily why I swore off love in the first place. 

He walks around the office like he owns the place, throwing that sexy smirk of his at every female he passes. He thinks no one is immune to his charm.  

But poor Mr. Avery has never met a girl like me before.  

I’m more likely to throw myself off a bridge than at his feet.  

There’s just one problem…  

He’s decided to make it his mission to prove me wrong. 

To that I say, let the games begin…

Blue Daniels has been hurt so many times by love that eventually she writes it off all together. That is, until Harris Avery, a co-worker she cannot stand, makes it his mission to change her mind.

Reluctantly, Blue agrees, and their once tumultuous relationship quickly begins to change into something neither of them saw coming. The more time they spend together, the more the connection builds, until eventually neither of them can deny their feelings for one another. Only after all that, Blue still tries. She refuses to accept that her feelings for Harris go beyond their physical chemistry.  

When Blue is faced with an unexpected pregnancy, she pushes Harris further away, convinced that this isn’t what she wants. But after a visit to her doctor, and learning she’s actually not pregnant after all, Blue realizes that maybe it’s exactly what she wanted all along. It comes a little late, but Blue finally admits her feelings to Harris, and while he’s happy to have won their bet, he’s even more thrilled that he won the girl.

He was the one.  

From the first moment I saw him, I knew. 

I had never been more certain of anything in my sixteen years on this earth.  

But Alec didn’t notice me. At least not in the way that I wanted him to. 

He noticed my best friend instead. 

I stood by and watched their relationship blossom.  

An outsider looking in, wishing things were different.  

Torn between my loyalty to my best friend and the boy who had unknowingly stolen my heart. 

Weighted by feelings I could never express out loud, I wrote them all down. 

Every thought. Every feeling. 

I poured them all into a letter. 

A letter he was never meant to read. 

Only that’s exactly what he did.  

He read it. 

Every single word. 

But by then it was too late. 

Even if he was no longer dating my best friend. 

Even if I was more in love with him than ever. 

He was leaving. 

I was leaving. 

And there was nothing either of us could do to change it. 

Alec Murray was my almost fairytale. 

The happy ending I swore I’d never get. 

But our story is far from over…

Nearly a year and a half later, Alec discovers the letter. Having always felt something for Hope, and never knowing those feelings were reciprocated, Alec is determined not to let her slip through his fingers a second time. Unfortunately, their timing couldn’t be worse, because Hope just accepted a scholarship in New York and leaves in just a few short days. 

For the next four years, their relationship experiences a numerous number of misses, with life taking them further and further away from each other. But throughout all the separation and bad timing, their feelings for each other do not waver. Deciding he’d rather wait for Hope than just accept that they will never get their shot, Alec—a freelance writer—submits a serial to a popular magazine. Each submission is a chapter, a piece of the puzzle that is their love story. Once the serial is published and Hope reads it, she realizes just how much she loves Alec, and how much he loves her as well. Before she has a chance to do anything about it, Alec shows up at her doorstep, announcing that he’s here to stay and that no time or distance is going to separate them for a moment longer. The story ends four years later with Alec and Hope married and expecting their first child.

If it’s fate, it must be love.

Three coincidental meetings with a handsome stranger convince Charlotte their relationship could be fate—but coincidence and love are two very different things.

Charlotte has floated along in life, averse to romance, buoyed by her parents’ dreams, haunted by her traumatic past. She confuses complacency with happiness in all aspects of her life, and fear of change keeps her from venturing too far from her comfort zone.

Avery enters Charlotte’s life when she most needs it, igniting a passion in her that she thought was dead. Caught up in the idea of fate, she clings to her relationship with Avery. Soon, everything begins to crumble.

When I’m facing down a wildfire, there’s no room to think about what I’ve lost.

In the heat of the moment, I can forget those who tore away pieces of my soul: my best friend, my father, my ex-fiancée. Action over thought.

After? Grief is the only echo.

Eventually, everything runs cold and awareness floods back in. When the smoke clears, I’ll have to deal with everything—and everyone—I’ve been pushing away.

There are questions I need answered. Secrets that need to be brought into the light. And a king who needs to be taken off his throne.

I’m still the object of his obsession, but I can work around that.

They say all’s fair in love and war. But if Caleb Asher taught me anything, it’s that this is definitely not love.

What do you think, Caleb? Are you ready for one last game?

Summary:
Following Caleb’s betrayal, Margo runs to the one place she assumes Caleb won’t go: Ian’s home. Ian is one of Caleb’s teammates, although events from their past has made them into enemies. After hunkering down for a while, Caleb finds her and confronts her. Margo refuses to give in to him, furious at his actions. Her foster parents arrive the next day, grateful that she’s safe, and take her back. They don’t blame her for her mother’s drug problem. She returns to school with more questions than answers: Who is the unknown texter who keeps harassing her? Why did Caleb try to ruin her chance of happiness with her foster family and their new relationship?

Margo’s hunt for answers leads her to the city, to her father’s lawyer. He recognized Caleb a few weeks prior, which made her highly suspicious. That uncovers little, but she learns that his lawyer urged a plea deal. Meanwhile, Caleb is trying to win her back. He suffers at the hands of his uncle, who becomes a key player in the war against Margo. One night, Caleb discovers that the unknown texter has been spying on Margo with a camera in her room, furthering his desire to protect her. After the state championship football game, Caleb and Margo are finally on the same page, and Margo confesses that she is going to see her father in prison to get answers about what happened when they were younger. Margo’s memory of that week is blocked, and Caleb refuses to tell her. She goes to see her dad for the first time in seven years, and he explains that he was arrested for Caleb’s dad’s murder. He took a plea deal for voluntary manslaughter, although he tells Margo he’s innocent. Shocked that Caleb didn’t tell her, she leaves the prison. Her foster father takes her home, but their car is struck. Someone drags Margo out of the flipped car, apologizing before rendering her unconscious.

When you fall in love with the most unexpected person, at the most unexpected time…

Ryan “Renegade” Kepler
I’m the type of man who knows what I want. I make up my mind and stay in my lane, never veering off the course I set for myself.

Going into the military? Did it. Youngest member of the Moonshine Task Force? That’s me. Get my best friend’s older sister in bed? It was my pleasure.

Age means nothing to me. I’ve seen and done things men twice my age never will. What I want more than anything is someone to share my life with, and that person is my best friend’s older sister, Whitney.

Whitney Trumbolt
Ryan may be ten years my junior, but damn, my first time being a cougar will never be forgotten. Now I’m struggling with wanting things to either go back to the way they were or spend every night in his arms.

Make my wedding planning company the best in the south? Did it. Ignore the way my body trembles when I see Ryan? Epic fail. Freak out when I see a positive pregnancy test staring back at me? Complete with mascara running down my face and clutching my pearls.

Looks like things will never be the same. There’s a man in my life who doesn’t take no for an answer. He’s the one who makes my blood run hot, cheeks turn red, and heart beat wildly within my chest. His name is Renegade.

Life isn’t promised, love isn’t easy, and relationships aren’t always clean, but everyone has their soulmate who is willing to forgive when it would be better to forget.

Trevor “Tank” Trumbolt

I never thought in the blink of an eye my life could change, but it did. Cresting a hill driving to my favorite fishing spot, I was hit head-on by a teenager with no regard for anyone’s life but his own.

The recovery process has been hard, painful, and damn near beating me down.

The bright spot? Blaze.

Surviving the wreck has given me a second chance to make a life with her. Not knowing if I’ll ever be able to rejoin the Moonshine Task Force again has brought my world into focus. It’s made me realize what’s important.

Blaze. Stella. My brothers. My sister.

The ego that ran Blaze away before isn’t here any longer. What’s left is a man who’s holding his heart in his hands and a burning hope that once I’m healed she’ll still be around.

Daphne “Blaze” Coleman

There’s only been one person in the world who’s accepted me for who I am – from the fiery red of my hair and vibrant tattoos covering parts of my body to the smartness of my mouth and my desire to be matched in the bedroom.

That man is Trevor Trumbolt. When he asked me to give up my job as an EMT because he saw the dangers I face one scary afternoon, it spelled the end for us.

Now that he’s been injured, he needs my help and my love. I failed once before when someone close needed me. I won’t make that mistake again. For Trevor, I’ll give it all freely, but in the end I’m gonna need him to understand one thing about relationships – the give and take, love and sadness, pleasure and pain is a two-way street. He’s either in this with me or he’s not, but at the end of the day, I won’t let him boss me around.

If there’s anything that can handle the steel of a tank – it’s the heat of a blaze.

Months later, Tank is in a life-threatening off-duty accident. He is injured so badly he can’t resume his normal duties. It’s decided someone should stay with him to help with recovery.

In close quarters, the feelings they had previously come back, and they come back with a vengeance. Very quickly, platonic gestures turn into romantic lust. Tank apologizes for making her choose between him and her job when she admits to him that she’s an EMT because she watched her older sister die of an overdose in front of her. She couldn’t help her sister, but she vows to help anyone else she can. It’s the most important thing in her life. As Tank is healing, he spends time with his friends and family. He gets to watch the birth of Whitney and Renegade’s daughter, Stella, and there are numerous scenes with him and Stella, showcasing how important it is for him to be in her life.

When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime… 

Holden “Havoc” Thompson 

My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.  

The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again – someone to show me the light when all we have in our line of work is darkness. 

I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection. 

Leighton Strather 

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined.  

My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get. 

It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that’s what I tell myself.

Ace is saving lives and mending hearts…….

Anthony “Ace” Bailey

I’m not a rules kinda guy

Department Policy? Kinda sucks, but I do what I have to for the job that I love.
Playing it safe? Not my thing.
Married? No big deal when I know she’s unhappy and scared.

I’m one of those guys – a sniper in the military, a little bit of an adrenaline junkie, and a member of the Moonshine Task Force. I’ve lived through some shit.

My gut has never failed me. It’s my sixth-sense. Warning me of a gunshot coming my way, of a traffic stop being potentially deadly, or the tingling in the back of my neck when I go to sleep telling me I’ll be woken up by a call in the middle of the night. My gut has always kept me honest.

Like the day I walked into The Café and saw the new waitress. There was a ring on her left hand, but I didn’t care. One look in her eyes told me everything I needed to know. Her marriage wasn’t one made of love and respect. It was one made of fear and doubt.

It’s why I ignored that ring, why I arrested her husband, and the reason I’m willing to take my time. Patience is a virtue, and with this woman, I have it in spades.

Violet Miller

Meeting Anthony Bailey changed my life. He did things that no one else has ever done for me.

Feeling safe? Never happened before.
Feeling wanted? It’s been years.
Being independent? I’m learning.

It’s foreign, not having someone question my every move, being able to eat what I want for dinner, and sitting out on my front porch talking to Anthony every night while we share a couple beers.

I try to tell myself he’s just being nice; that he’s doing his job and working within the community. The problem? The night he takes the kiss we both want, everything changes, and I can no longer deny what I feel. But it doesn’t stop me from trying – and I learn quickly that Ace knows me better than anyone else ever has – including myself.

All I can do is hang on, as he takes me on the scariest journey of my life. The one that bends us until we almost break, and ends with a happily ever after I never thought I would get.

Summary:
Anthony “Ace” Bailey is a member of the Alabama Moonshine Task Force – an elite group of police officers combating the use of illegal moonshine in the state. Violet Miller is a waitress at the local Café. When her abusive husband beats her one day in the middle of her work shift, Ace saves her. When she gets out of the hospital, Ace does his best to make sure she feels cared for and safe, especially as she goes back to work in the same place her husband beat her. Ace goes out of his way to make sure she doesn’t isolate herself from their group of friends.

They go to Mobile, Alabama to celebrate the marriage of their friends Renegade and Whitney. The entire MTF takes a road trip to the most southern part of the state. While there, she gets a little more of herself back; she starts wearing makeup, dresses, and begins to take better care of herself. The rooms have been double-booked, and she’s bunking with Ace. He teaches her that men can be patient and kind. Eventually, she’s strong enough to talk to him about pursuing her dreams of going to school and divorcing her husband. Her husband refuses to give her a divorce, but Ace makes sure she gets it, telling her that even if he isn’t a part of her dreams, he wants to help her achieve them. Over the next few months, they spend time together, even getting stuck together on Halloween helping their friend Leighton get to the hospital to deliver her and Havoc’s baby. The end welcomes in a new year, with Ace proposing to Violet.

The sexy, single dad of the MTF finally gets his turn…….

Mason “Menace” Harrison

“Single and ready to mingle……”

Those are the words above every picture of almost every female that strikes my interest on this dating app my son talked me into getting. After being a single dad for seventeen years, I’m ready to spread my wings, just not with most of the co-eds who keep hitting on me and calling me daddy.

Now that Caleb’s in his Senior year of high school, I feel like I can let go of the iron-clad control I’ve had on myself without his Mom in our lives. I’ve enjoyed raising him, love the relationship we have, and while he went off the rails for a bit last year, we’re closer than we’ve ever been. He’s got a full ride to the University of Alabama, and I’ve settled into my spot with the Moonshine Task Force.

But my son doesn’t warm my bed, he isn’t someone I can share my dreams with, and he’s not the person I want to grow old with by my side. I’m not sure who that is yet, but the smokin’ hot lady going by the name BeachBum83 definitely has every single bit of my interest.

Karina Holland

“Looking for a good time, maybe more…..”

Those were the lamest words I ever typed in my life, but it was the best I had for the dating app my friend, Violet talked me into joining. I didn’t have any high hopes for myself. As a High School English teacher, I’m sick of pervy Dads hitting on me when they come in to discuss their child’s lack of motivation to read the classics and apply themselves.

Until the day Mason Harrison walks into my classroom. I had no idea Caleb’s Dad was the man I met off that dating app who showed me how flexible I really am in the back of his Jeep. Within minutes of the parent/teacher conference he proved the sparks weren’t one-time only when we christened my desk.

Mason and Caleb? They touch a part of my heart that no one’s ever touched before, and when a threat from the past shows up, I prove just how tough I really am.

Summary:
Mason “Menace” Harrison is a member of the Alabama Moonshine Task Force – an elite group of police officers combating the use of illegal moonshine in the state. Karina Holland is his son Caleb’s teacher. When Caleb puts a dating app on Menace’s phone, neither of them really expect for him to hit it off with anyone. But, he does. Karina meets him in Birmingham, where they share a dinner and end up having sex in the backseat of his Jeep. She assumes he’s the single father of a young child, and is not sure that she wants to get involved with someone with a young child, so she ignores his calls. When he walks into her classroom for career day, they’re both shocked. After the students leave, they have an encounter on her desk, and she promises next time she’ll answer the phone. She agrees to date him, and they spend time getting to know one another. The MTF is investigating a lead that there is moonshine in the school where Karina teaches, and they suspect the creepy science teacher, who also happens to hang around the girls’ locker room too often.

Caleb is a high school senior, and Menace is doing his best to find out what his life will be once Caleb’s gone. Karina steps in when Caleb is sick with the flu, and further insinuates herself into their family dynamic. She and Menace move in together, and soon Caleb goes off to college. They find a stash of moonshine near the locker room. Not being able to pin it on the teacher yet, they hang back, gathering more evidence. Menace and Karina get married, and she finds out she’s pregnant. They share the happy news with Caleb, and go to watch him play in his first college football game. Around Thanksgiving, they have the proof they need to arrest the science teacher, but he gets wind of it, and takes a heavily pregnant Karina hostage. Ace goes back to his sniper beginnings to take out the target, and saves Karina. The couple has their baby daughter, Kelsea, and Caleb promises her that she will never have to know what it’s like not to have a family to count on.

The kid is now a man, and he’s got something to prove….. 

Caleb “Cruise” Harrison 

“A Dad is a son’s first hero……” 

All my life I’ve looked up to my Dad, there’s nothing I ever wanted to do more than be a member of the Moonshine Task Force right next to him. I said no to playing football professionally to stay in Laurel Springs and fulfill my dream.  

I’m biding my time, paying my dues, and soaking up any bit of information my fellow MTF members slip my way. To most of them I’m the kid they watched grow up, and while they’re proud of me, they don’t take me seriously. 

Life is status quo until the morning all hell breaks loose in our small town threatening everyone I know and love – including the one woman I can’t get out of my head. 

Ruby Carson 

“My favorite place? In his arms……” 

Caleb saved me from the worst date of my life, swooping in like the fixer he is. Smiling his panty-melting grin, he grabbed my hand, and extricated me from the longest ninety minutes known in the history of the world.  

Instead, he took me on the best date I’ve ever had. We’ve been inseparable since that crazy night. 

It hasn’t been picture-perfect. His job is dangerous, it worries me, even when he tells me not to. One gorgeous summer day, it all comes crashing down on us. 

The man who has my heart is in the middle of a FUBAR situation that has no good ending. My hope is, when the smoke clears Caleb walking towards me, arms out-stretched, with that grin on his face, before he envelopes my body into the hug only he can give. 

That’s what would happen in a perfect world – but I’ve never known a perfect world – not even with Caleb…… 

Summary: 
Ten years after the last book, Caleb Harrison, Menace’s son, has joined the Moonshine Task Force as “Cruise”. Ruby is a teacher at the local school, and works with Caleb’s stepmother, Karina, who he now calls “mom.” They meet at The Café, when Caleb overhears Ruby get propositioned in a way that sets him on edge. Caleb intervenes, gets rid of the guy, and offers to take Ruby home, telling her he’s a cop. He asks to take her out on the ride home, and so begins their relationship. He tells her of growing up without a female figure, and how his dad always made the class cupcakes for his birthday, but they were awful, and he was always kind of ashamed of them. On Valentine’s Day, Caleb and his dad are called away because of a horrible wreck, leaving Ruby and Karina to celebrate the holiday together. When he and his dad arrive at their family home, Ruby has made cupcakes, and Caleb knows she’s the one for him. 

Things are status quo, until Caleb is called out on a chase and is forced to shoot and kill the suspect. He reacts by pushing everyone away. He has a hard time coming to grips with the fact he killed another man. He and Menace have an emotional discussion about doing what they have to do in the line of duty; about how things aren’t always black and white, and sometimes you have to save a larger number of people by taking out the threat. Menace says it’s like the cupcakes he used to make—He knew they weren’t good, and even though Caleb was embarrassed, he knew he’d be more embarrassed if Caleb showed up without them. Finally, Caleb gets some understanding of who he is, and his job. Caleb makes his own cupcakes, taking them to Ruby and explaining that he understands it’s not what things look like on the outside, it’s what they mean on the inside that matters. He knows who he is, and he knows he’s a good person, no matter what he has to do. A few months later, he proposes in the The Café, at the table where he rescued her from her awful date. The epilogue is set five years later, with them as a married couple, welcoming their second child together.

Ransom Thompson 

For years I’ve wanted two things: to be a member of the Moonshine Task Force and to be the man Stella Kepler can’t live without. 

One out of two isn’t bad, or so I tell myself. Being the only K-9 handler for the MTF presents its own share of obstacles, but me and Rambo? We make it work. Life is status quo, until I’m called in to help with what appears to be a hostage situation and Stella is right in the middle of it. 

This is my one chance, and I’m not going to blow it. 

Stella Kepler 

When I’m stuck in an examination room holding a hurt woman and a man with a gun, I do the only thing I can – I sneak out, call 911, and hope help comes quickly. It does. 

In the form of Ransom Thompson. He and I have known each other since we were babies. Our mothers are friends, our dads work together, and we’ve always been friends. 

Only, the last few months I’ve started to notice things. How mature he is, how alpha he can be, the chiseled six-pack, and the abundance of ink spreading across his body.  

When I offer to cook him dinner for saving me, neither one of us knows how that one moment will change the course of the rest of our lives. 

Summary: 
Laurel Springs Police Department K-9 officer Ransom responds to a call from a local medical clinic about a man with a gun. Inside are his childhood friends, Stella and Kelsea. He’s worried, so he springs into action quickly. Stella is inside the room with the armed man, and thanks to her being calm, she helps Ransom apprehend the man. As a thank you, she offers to make him dinner. When she goes over, she’s introduced to K-9 Rambo; it’s important to Ransom for the woman in his life to get along with his dog. Over time, they start dating, but they don’t want their family in their business. Instead, they keep it a secret. Their fathers are both on The Moonshine Task Force, and they have grown up together. Ransom encourages Stella to follow her dream of going to nursing school, and she does her best to help him deal with the pressures of being an officer in the current political climate. When The Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team is formed, Stella joins with her brother, Nick, as well as Kelsea, and Ransom’s brother Cutter. Ransom and Rambo are in a high-speed chase. Ransom goes after the driver, and Rambo goes after the passenger. A hand-to-hand fight ensues along with shots fired. Both Ransom and Rambo are injured.  

Stella is at the Café when her dad comes in to tell the Café owner, Leighton, that her son, Ransom, has been injured. Stella can no longer keep their relationship from her family. When they get to the hospital, she goes to Ransom, who begs her to go be with Rambo in case something bad happens—he doesn’t want his beloved dog to be alone. Ransom and Rambo come through their respective surgeries, and during his recovery, Ransom realizes how important Stella is to him. Stella get pulled over while driving, and the K-9 unit is called in for a drug sniff. When Ransom and Rambo show up, they treat her like a criminal, until they ‘find’ a package in her car with a ‘will you marry me’ message on it. Of course, she says yes.

If you don’t love, you can’t get hurt…

Nick Kepler

One thing my childhood taught me was never show my emotions. Don’t make memories. Don’t count on other people. Don’t hope for the best.

All that changed when I was adopted by Ryan and Whitney Kepler.

Begrudgingly I let them into my life, along with my new sister and a best friend I would lay down my life for. But giving up my heart and accepting love in return from Kelsea Harrison? It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to do.

And the truth is? I’m not sure if I’m that strong.

Kelsea Harrison

From the very moment I met Nick Kepler I knew he would be the love of my life. Problem is I haven’t been able to convince him of that yet.

When our best friends get married, Nick and I spend a drunken night letting our walls down and losing all our inhibitions. In one moment I’m given everything I ever wanted. Then, in the blink of an eye it’s taken away from me.

The question is, can I be strong for the both of us?

The answer? I have to be.

Summary:
Kelsea Harrison has had a crush on police officer Nick Kepler for years. Because he had a horrible upbringing, he doesn’t think he’s worthy of her. At a wedding reception they both attend, she has a little too much to drink, and he can no longer resist her. He and Kelsea end up sleeping together, which pushes them into a pseudo-relationship. Nothing pushes them completely together, though, until he’s called on a child welfare check for Darren Metcalfe. Immediately, he knows the child isn’t cared for. Darren reminds him of himself when he was his age. When Darren is placed in foster care, Nick and Kelsea apply to take him in.  They both know it’ll look better if they are in a relationship. For the good of Darren, they will do anything.

            They all live together, doing their best to come together as a family. It’s not easy, as Darren deals with a lot of things Nick has been through—but not dealt with—and Kelsea is doing the best she can to hold everything together. There’s not a tipping point until Darren’s father threatens their happy family. One night Kelsea is with a friend and they see a Laurel Springs Police Car on the side of the road, and an officer down beside it. They stop and realize it’s Nick. Kelsea gets on the radio calling for help, and his brothers all come, knowing Darren’s father did this to him. They get the evidence they need, and while Nick is in surgery, they head out to take care of Darren’s father. He dies when he refuses to surrender to the police. Nick comes home from the hospital and realizes what he’s going to miss if he doesn’t take notice soon. Kelsea and Nick secretly get married right before they officially adopt Darren. They all have the same last name, and their families are there when the judge makes it official.

The kid who lost his scholarship and the love is life is ready for a change. A change I’m equal parts scared will and won’t come. 
 
An EMT wasn’t my first choice of careers, but it’s become my calling. When the winds die down, the skies clear, and the rain stops, we’re left with devastation the likes of which I’ve never seen. 
 
What I come to realize is ugly destruction can be beautiful, if we can only figure out what perspective to see it. 
 
Rowan Baker 
 
The LSERT is a godsend, especially as us local first responders emerge from our shelters to see our town and homes destroyed. It’s going to take time to rebuild. 
 
Rebuilding is what I’m used to. After I watched my four-year-old daughter die in my arms I’ve done nothing but try to find a reason to live. 
 
But I’ve got baggage. Memories, an ex-husband, and a fear I won’t be able to save everyone. 
 
When I meet Cutter Thompson, he reminds me rebuilding can mean letting go of fear and allowing myself to live the life I’ve wanted all along. 

Summary: 
There’s a category five hurricane churning in the gulf, and it’s heading toward Paradise Lost, AL. The LSERT, including Cutter, are riding out the storm in a hotel, waiting to be called to action. Rowan Baker is an EMT with the Paradise Lost department, and she’s watching the storm come in from their station. In the middle of the night, they’re given the go ahead to start helping the citizens. Cutter and Rowan end up working together through the night, alone in one area of devastation, triaging patients. Just as they run out of supplies, the rest of their crew shows up to help. The next night, Rowan and Cutter show up at the same restaurant, and decide to share a meal where we they talk a little about their families, but both of them are hiding secrets: Rowan’s four-year-old daughter drowned in an accident at the family home, and Cutter lost his scholarship to play college football because his heart was broken by a girlfriend. 

They eventually start seeing one another at work and away from work, spending time at her apartment and the beach. They confide in one another about their lives and how those two situations have shaped who they are. Rowan talks about how her husband was supposed to be watching their daughter, but he was on the phone with the woman he was cheating on Rowan with. Cutter explains how his family was disappointed in him, but the only person he ever told was his brother. Their relationship turns sexual, and Cutter gets called back to Laurel Springs. He asks Rowan if she wants to make a go of it, even if it’s long-distance, and she agrees. For a few weeks she stays in Paradise Lost, and he stays in Laurel Springs. They go back and forth, each meeting the other’s family, until Rowan decides maybe it’s time for her leave. Maybe she needs a new start, and that new start could be with Cutter in Laurel Springs. There she won’t have all the memories of her daughter. She goes to her daughter’s grave to let go of everything she’s been holding onto. She explains to her family why she needs to leave, and her brother Sullivan says he’ll come with her, that he needs a change of scenery, too. The two of them move to Laurel Springs, each settling into their own respect places. During the epilogue, Cutter and Rowan get engaged.

When she decides to take back the part of her life that her rapist took away, she discovers secrets that once again could tear the club apart.  

Orphan.  

Formidable force of nature.  

Loved member of the Heaven Hill MC.  

Tyler Blackfoot came into the world a John Doe. An orphan from the moment that he took his first breath, the only thing anyone knew was his Native American heritage. For most of his life, he’s been alone – except for the club that has taken him in as their own. When he rescued Meredith, a protective side of his personality came out that he never knew he had. Protecting her means everything – even when he discovers danger might be closer than either of them thought possible.  

Together, the two of them are trying to make a life for themselves. Against everything they have, they’re hoping to see the light that will lead them out of darkness. 

Summary: 
Meredith is trying to figure out how to live her life as a rape survivor. Everyday things scare her, so she’s staying at the clubhouse now. She’s taken up running, and does her best to exorcise the demons she’s fighting. Almost daily, Denise goes with her so she won’t be alone. Tyler is struggling too, worrying about what happened to Meredith, and if Heaven Hill can catch who is responsible. The only thing he knows is he has a huge chip on his shoulder and a rage he’s never felt before. Meredith starts seeing a therapist named Doc Jones. They begin to work on what’s happened to her, teaching her how to be comfortable around me again, how to reclaim her sexuality. During this time, she continues to stay with Tyler and Heaven Hill. They become the family she didn’t know she needed. Doc Jones is helping her reclaim herself, and Heaven Hill is helping her feel safe. Just before Halloween, she goes into a store, and someone in a mask scares her—they remind her of her attacker. That day, she decides to take her life back. She and Tyler think she must have been targeted because of something she was working on as a reporter. Meanwhile, she and Tyler are growing closer. He decides to take her to his home. She’s to the point where she wants to explore getting closer to him sexually, and he wants her to feel comfortable. He talks her through her first sexual encounter after her rape, and from that moment on, they’re inseparable.  

The more she looks into her attack, the more she starts to find out. Namely William, the President of Heaven Hill, may have had something to do with it. Liam and his father don’t get along well, and he wonders if William did, in fact, order the attack on Meredith. One night, while they’re working protection at Wet Wanda’s and Jagger (the prospect) is putting on a show there, Tyler and Meredith are outside with other members of the club. Meredith hears a ringtone, one she recognizes from the night of her attack. It’s very particular, and she tells Tyler that’s the man who attacked her. Tyler tells her to leave, and he takes care of her rapist. When he goes back to Meredith, he’s visibly shaken and needs the comfort he’s found in her arms. He also tells Liam that William was the person who ordered the attack on Meredith, and they have to decide what they’re going to do. Liam takes the rank of president when they oust his dad from the club. Tyler and Meredith elope in Gatlinburg, but instead of rings, they wear necklaces, and don’t tell anyone the truth about if they’re married or not. The story ends with everyone celebrating with a Christmas meal at the clubhouse. 

Trick

Blurb:
A forced sentence leads to a reckless passion…

Hadley
When my husband walked out on me over a year ago, it devastated me. When the divorce papers came, it wrecked me. When we had to sell our house, it broke me. 
But then he moved in with his new flavor of the month and told our daughter his new woman wasn’t into children. That pissed me off.

Now Riley feels abandoned, and I can’t make it better; no matter how hard I try. I’m desperate to help her adjust to the loss of a male figure in her life. The Companion Program that matches adults up with children who have loneliness and abandonment issues is my last hope.

The counselors tell me he’s doing community service hours, and I ask to sit in on his meetings with Riley. The minute I see him astride the matte black Harley, I know neither my nor Riley’s life will ever be the same again.

Trick
Community Service. Two words I should be thankful for, but I’m not. I resent the hours away from building my business. The two previous kids I’d been paired up with didn’t work out because their mothers were more interested in getting in my bed than making sure their child was taken care of. This next match with a little girl is my last hope. Unless this kid works out, I’m destined to serve time.

When they push her into the room wearing pink converse with a black dress, her crazy curls barely held back by the barrette in her hair, and studious glasses on her face, I can tell she’s scared – of new people, of change, of being pushed aside. Something inside of me breaks, and I want this girl to feel wanted again.

What I’m unprepared for is meeting her mom. The second our hands touch, I see fireworks, bright lights, and a picture of the future I could one day have. The future I’ve never allowed myself to wish for.

Community service becomes more than a chore, more than the precious hours I have to give up. In the months that follow, I realize Riley and Hadley are just like me; they’ve been abandoned, left behind by the world, forgotten by those who should love them.

Thanks to the one last hope in both our lives – we found the light in the darkness we’d been searching for.

Summary:
Patrick “Trick” Tennyson is an ex-con being given one more shot to stay out of prison by doing one thousand hours of community service. He’s been chosen to work in the Companion Program, where he’s paired with six year old Riley Westin, who is in need of a positive male influence. Riley’s father never wanted kids, and made it well known to her mother, Hadley. Divorced and on her own, Hadley is working two jobs, doing whatever she can to make Riley feel safe and secure, but Trick changes their lives as soon as they’re introduced. Trick quickly falls for the little girl, and is wildly attracted to her mother. Hadley feels the same attraction, which she hasn’t felt with anyone, even when she first met her husband. She and Trick begin a cautious relationship, and within a few months, Hadley and Riley are practically living with Trick and his cat, Tux.

Trick passes a parole hearing, meaning he doesn’t have to go back to jail. He supports Hadley through a surprise custody battle with her ex. Trick is worried about Hadley’s custody case being hurt by her association with him, since he does have a record. Hadley reassures him, as does her attorney—he is now a law-abiding citizen, a business owner, a positive role model for Riley, and an asset to his community. The judge rules in Hadley’s favor. They find out that her ex still doesn’t want Riley, but he wanted some control of Hadley’s life. Hadley and Riley officially move in with Trick, and he proposes to both of them—to Riley with pink diamond earrings, and to Hadley with a matching pink diamond ring. A few years later, the couple reflect on their wedding day, when Trick officially adopted Riley during the ceremony. Hadley is now pregnant with a little boy, and Riley calls Trick ‘dad.’ Together, they get the family they all dreamed of.

Summary: 
Penelope, her mother, and her son are on their way to her parents’ home in North Carolina on Christmas Eve, when, due to a snowstorm, their plane is forced to land at a tiny airport in Tennessee.  While in the airport, Pen hears her ex’s name called on the speaker system, and she has a meltdown in the bathroom. She hasn’t seen him in six years, and she’s harboring a secret that, if revealed to him, would destroy her life.  She hopes she can sneak out of the airport with her mother and son before Artemis spots her.  Artemis, who was on his way to NYC for a family holiday party, is pissed he’s missing the party. He’s helping his father run the family business, but he had plans to make an announcement at the party.  He spots Pen leaving the bathroom, leading to an angry confrontation. It becomes clear they both feel as though they were the wronged party—each of them blame the other for breaking their heart. They part on angry words. Pen is determined to leave the airport, but while she’s looking for an escape route, Artemis spots Pen’s mother and son and realizes the boy must be his, given his age, and his name—Max…which is Artemis’ middle name.  Pen and Artemis have another angry discussion about why she hid the fact he had a son from him.  She tells him she was protecting Max from his vicious billionaire family, and Artemis is furious, but at the same time, sort of understands why she did it.  He calls his brother for advice.  His brother tells him he should take the kid and get sole custody.  Penelope has a breakdown, thinking Artemis will take Max.  Artemis asks if they can talk again, and calmly, they discuss what Max’s life has been like. The sparks and attraction between them rekindle. Artemis bonds with Max over origami animals, and they have an instant connection, though they don’t tell Max who he is yet. 

Artemis and Pen have sex in a secluded area of the airport, and it’s clear they still love each other.  Pen thinks maybe things can work between them somehow. After, Penelope overhears Artemis on the phone with his brother, talking about having her declared unfit and taking Max.  She goes off on Artemis, and he admits that’s what his brother advised him to do. They part and each go speak to their own attorneys about the options. Penelope realizes she can’t go up against his family and expect to win, so she needs to calmly come to an agreement with Artemis.  They talk, but nothing gets decided. He tells her he had planned to quit working for his family because he couldn’t handle all the underhanded things they did.  She doesn’t believe he can walk away from his family. The runways are finally clear, and Artemis walks away from Max and Penelope, crying as he leaves.  Pen’s mother tells her she’s being stupid letting him walk away, and she races out onto the runway to stop him from leaving.  They say their “I love yous” and end on a kiss.  The epilogue shows them six months later, living in North Carolina together with Max. Artemis has quit his family’s business and opened a law practice. Pen’s parents and his brother come for dinner, and Artemis proposes.  She tells him she’s pregnant, and they get the HEA they should have had all those years ago.

Summary: 
Warwick Pike is the captain and leader of the group of modern pirates who operate on the Great Lakes.  The book opens with a standoff a gunpoint between Warwick and Grace, who is the captain of a ship they are trying to raid and steal from.  Grace manages to get off a distress signal to the Coast Guard, thwarting their plans and forcing Warwick to take her hostage (which is breaking the only rule he has).  Warwick brings Grace to their warehouse headquarters where she learns he isn’t all he appears to be.  He’s well-educated, intelligent, and even though he’s covered in tattoos and tries to intimidate her, she finds herself falling for him.  She learns Warwick is in deep debt to the Chicago Italian mob (the Marconis) and that’s why they are pirating-at the direction of Arturo Marconi, the nephew of Il Padrone, the head of the family.  They only managed to get half the cargo off her ship and when they realize it’s heroin, Warwick goes nuts and reveals his father died of a heroin overdose.  They need to get the second half of the shipment off the ship or Arturo will kill them.  

The ship is now in the Milwaukee port, and when trying to get aboard to get to the cargo, Warwick assaults a guard and gets stabbed.  While Grace is taking care of Warwick, they kiss, and she learns he’s attracted to her.

He’s everything she didn’t know she wanted. She’s everything he thought he could never have. 
 
The last thing I expect when I walk into The Hawkeye Club is to fall head over heels in lust. It’s supposed to be a rescue mission. I have to get my baby sister off the pole, into some clothes, and out of the grasp of the pussy peddler who somehow manipulated her into stripping. But the moment I see Savage Hawke and verbally spar with him, my ability to remain rational flies out the window and my libido takes center stage. I’ve never wanted a relationship—my time is better spent focusing on taking down the scum running this city—but what I want and what I need are apparently two different things. 
 
Danika Eriksson storms into my office in her high heels and on her high horse. Her holier-than-thou attitude and accusations should offend me, but instead, I can’t get her out of my head or my heart. Her incomparable drive, take-no-prisoners attitude, and blatant honesty captivate me and hold me prisoner. I should steer clear, but my self-preservation instinct is apparently dead—which is exactly what our relationship will be once she knows everything. It’s only a matter of time. 
 
The truth doesn’t always set you free. Sometimes, it just royally screws you.

AURORA 

Max Lawson doesn’t belong here. 

The California surf boy has no business being up Spruce Mountain or anywhere near The Last Resort Motel. 

There can only be one reason he’s hanging around—to search one of the old mines in hopes of striking it rich. 

And as soon as he’s done, he’ll be gone fast enough to make my head spin. 

But Max brings more than just a danger to my heart. 

MAX 

Aurora Clayton is the last thing I expect to find at The Last Resort Motel. 

What in the world is a girl like this doing in the middle of nowhere, Nevada? 

Search the land I inherited and get back to California—that’s the plan. 

I never expected to find something here even more precious than silver. 

But someone else is after what’s down that mine shaft. 

And I’ll do everything in my power to protect what I’ve found, including Aurora. 

Summary: 
 Aurora inherited The Last Resort Motel after her parents died, and she dropped out of college to return to restore the family legacy.  The motel sits along a desolate stretch of a two-lane highway in the northern desert near Spruce Mountain, Nevada.  Max is a former Army Ranger who now lives in California and recently inherited an old mine and some land that’s been in his family for a long time.  He decides to travel to Spruce Mountain to check it out, and ends up at The Last Resort Motel. Aurora is flustered by Max, since handsome blond surfer boys don’t usually end up out here. He’s vague about his reasons for being here, but she suspects it has to do with the mines, since that’s the only thing out here. After a few flirty encounters, they sleep together. He invites her to investigate the mine with him.  

On a trip up to the mine, shots are fired at them.  They dodge for cover, and Max explains the path back to their Jeep blocked, so the only place to go is up toward the mine, where he has explosives. Aurora recognizes a local troublemaker as one of the people shooting at them, and they surmise there’s something in the mine worth killing for.  Max comes up with a plan: They will lure them down one shaft while he and Aurora are in another and then detonate the explosives to trap them in.  While hiding and waiting for the attackers, Aurora and Max discover a silver vein running through one of the lower hidden shafts.  They reach the Jeep after detonating the explosives, only to find all the tires flat.  They start to hike down the rest of the mountain, but one of the men shoots at them again. They take off into the woods for cover, racing for their lives. They find a vehicle in the woods and assume it belongs to one of their attackers, and Max hotwires it to help get them out. They get back to the motel and contact the sheriff’s office to explain what happened.  Max is taken to the hospital to stitch up some of his injuries and he tells Aurora he’s going to stay, not because of the mine, but for her.  They’re going to fix up the motel and save the family legacy while building one of their own while he gets the silver out of the mine.  The ending shows their first major improvement and their HEA.

Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance

*All languages available for translation, excluding the following:

Blurb: 
Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric Hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns. 

It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long. 

Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly-leashed emotions. Neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face. 

No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood at all. 

Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist. 

Summary: 
After a suicide attempt, Willow Taylor has been admitted to Heartstone Psychiatric Hospital. She absolutely hates being locked up, and thinks that being asked by doctors to rehash that incident over and over is not going to help her chronic depression. A few weeks into her stay, a new doctor arrives—Dr. Simon Blackwood. At first, Willow is wary of the new psychiatrist and his questions, but she soon realizes that he’s different than any other doctor she’s met before.

Dr. Simon Blackwood has his own demons—like Willow, his mother suffered from chronic depression while he was growing up—and helping his patients is what keeps them away. Willow and her reluctance to talk about illness is something that intrigues him. The more sessions they have, the more he realizes how strongly and silently Willow has fought her illness all her life. So much so that spending time with her gives him the strength to face his own past. Simon does the same for Willow, giving her the strength to face her depression, and to her surprise, she realizes that she’s fallen for her psychiatrist. While Willow makes no secret about it, Simon keeps his growing feelings under control. But love isn’t something that can simply vanish if denied, and when Willow is discharged from the hospital, Simon realizes that it’s his turn to fight for her and convince her that they belong together. Because love is the only thing worth breaking every rule for.

Well, to be fair, she kinda deserves it.

On her eighteenth birthday, she got drunk and threw herself at him, causing a huge scandal in their sleepy suburban town.

Now everyone thinks she’s a slut and he has disappeared. Rumor has it that he’s been living up in the mountains of Colorado, all alone and in isolation.

But Violet is going to make it right.

She’s going to find him and bring him back.

No matter how cruel and mean he is, how much he hurts her with his cold-hearted and abrasive ways, she won’t give up.

And neither will she think about his tempting lips or his sculpted muscles or his strong hands. The hands that she wants on her body, touching her, feeling her skin…

The hands that make her want to forget everything and kiss Graham Edwards – Mr. Edwards, actually – again.

Because you don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad, do you?

Even though that’s all you ever dream about.

Summary:
Violet Moore has been in love with neighbor, Graham Edwards, ever since she was sixteen and saw him move in next door. However, he is not only eighteen years older than her, he is also the father of her best friend, Brian. In order to preserve her friendship and do the right thing, Violet keeps her distance from Graham until her eighteenth birthday, when she gets drunk and mistakenly kisses him. The kiss, however, is witnessed by both Brian and Violet’s sister. It leads to a huge scandal, which forces Graham out of their town and sends Violet into a frenzy of anxiety and panic attacks, resulting in her stint in a psychiatric ward for a few weeks.

Ten months later, Violet is fresh out of the hospital and determined to find Graham so she can apologize for her grave mistake. When she shows up at his isolated cabin in Colorado, Graham is less than happy to see her. Living in isolation for the past ten months, he wants her to leave him alone, but Violet is adamant. No matter how cruel he is and what he throws her way, Violet doesn’t leave. Especially when she finds out that Graham feels the same connection with her as she does, and his self-imposed isolation is out of his guilt and loathing for wanting a girl half his age. Now it’s up to Violet to convince him that age is simply a number and that they belong together. Every time Graham tries to push her away, Violet stands her ground. Every time he tries to pretend that he doesn’t care about her, Violet shows him the opposite. Finally, Graham realizes that despite all the obstacles in their way, love is the only thing worth fighting for.

Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive calling.

What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps seeing around campus could be a great one–only he is the new poetry professor–the married poetry professor.

Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist–rude, arrogant, and broody–but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry, but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade, Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.

Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.

However, the stranger is her poetry professor, Thomas Abrams, who also happens to be married.

However, the harder he tries to hold on, the more slippery his relationship becomes, until one day his wife leaves him and their child in the dead of the night.

As the days pass, their encounters grow steamier while at the same time, they reveal that Layla and Thomas have an undeniable connection.

He was an artist. She was his muse.

To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil’s spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster.

To twelve-year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special.

Despite her family’s warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn’t.

Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.

Because their love was worth the risk. Their love was the stuff of legend.

Instead of settling in their new lives, Abel and Evie grow more resentful of the injustices done to them by their town. Through mutual acquaintances, an opportunity in the form of adult entertainment industry presents itself and for Abel and Evie, this is the ultimate revenge: making sex videos; where they had to hide their love in the past, now they can flaunt it. However, revenge has no place in love and Evie is the first to realize it. When Abel isn’t ready to quit, Evie is forced to leave him with a heavy heart.

There must be something wrong with me. After nearly two years of dirty looks and constant humiliation, I’m still crushing on the guy who hated me on sight.

I am both heaven and hell. Sin and pleasure. 

The Devil she never sees coming… 

Everyone knows that Malcolm Asher owns Chicago. Nothing—not a single move is made in my city without my authorization. I’m ruthless. Conniving. Worshipped by those around me, and yet, it means nothing the moment my eyes meet hers… 

Clear blue and innocent, the delicate doll on this stage holds me captive against my will. She’s decadence personified—a corruptible angel I want to own. 

I’m hard for her. Starving for a taste. Eager for her to feel me. 

This little girl has no idea of the danger she’s in within my presence. How I will make her crave the darkness I control. 

How I will make her…Mine. 

Summary: 
Malcolm Asher is the king of Chicago’s cutthroat banking industry, and also the money laundering genius for his clientele, most of which reside at the top of wanted lists across the globe. The same night a disciplinary meeting is called and blood is shed, he visits a private club for the wickedly sexual to partake in his favorite pastime: voyeurism. London Foster is young, beautiful, in trouble, and takes the first offered job, no matter what. She’s coveted by her stepbrother in ways that no sibling should be, while her stepfather plans to steal her unknown inheritance before selling her virginal body to the highest bidder. She knows her family’s underground connections and wrongdoings, but takes no part in them.  

Their lives were intertwined via her step-family—an enemy they have in common. Malcolm frees London from her family home and moves her in with him. The more Malcolm digs into London’s past, the more his possessive and protective instincts overtake everything, going as far as keeping a security detail on London at all times. The Fosters stole from them both—Malcolm business-wise, and they are responsible for the death of London’s parents, in addition to the theft of her inheritance—and for that, Malcolm gets revenge by emptying their stolen goods, and injuring them. They don’t stop, striving more than ever to overturn the king and take back London. In a last desperate act, the Fosters work with an overeager FBI agent desperate to take down Malcolm and work together to kidnap London. 

No one is spared when Malcolm locates where they are holding her, and when London pulls the final trigger, ending her stepbrother’s life, she finally feels the strength they’d taken from her return. Days later she puts a bullet into her stepfather. No longer weak, she stands beside Malcolm as his fiancé as she grows into the woman she was always meant to be.

She reconnects with her hilarious best friend from childhood, Dallas Stovall and grows close to both her and her six-year-old son, Beau.

Blurb: 
My big brother and I landed in the care of my aunt and her husband after my parents died in a tragic accident when I was three-years-old. I grew up smothered by love from a family that knows what the bitter sting of loss feels like. 

Living under that umbrella afforded me the ability to grow up with the security needed to try my every whim… and I have, now it’s time to figure out who I want to be. 

My family would love for me to settle down with someone grounded and successful like the sexy new vet in town. 

I like him, but I am restless. 

I don’t want to be grounded. I want to ride the wind. 

Walker Reid has worked on my family’s ranch for years. He’s like a son to Uncle Jeff and my brother’s closet friend. He is a sexy devil, drinks too much and likes to live wild and free. 

I’m drawn to him. Maybe he’ll finally be the one to help me let go and find where I belong. Or maybe my brother will kill us both. 

Summary: 
Elowyn “Elle” Young lost her parents in a tragic accident when she was only three years-old. She and her big brother, Braxton, were sent to live with their maternal aunt, Madeline, and her new husband, Jefferson Lancaster, at Rustic Peak Ranch. Despite having lost her parents at such a young age, Elle had a wonderful childhood. She was raised by the large, extended Lancaster family in a house full of love and support. Braxton has always felt the responsibility of looking after her well-being and is a bit over-bearing at times; however, now that he has found love with Jefferson’s daughter, Sophie, and is expecting a baby of his own, Elle sees her chance to break free and see what life has to offer her. She’s restless in her skin and searching for her purpose. With guidance of her wise aunts, she starts to come into her own, finding a career path that suits her, and even dating the new sexy vet in town, Brandt Haralson. Her family likes the idea of her ending up with the charming and handsome doctor, but sparks refuse to fly between the two, and they settle on close friendship instead.  

In steps Walker Reid. Walker works for her uncle and brother at Rustic Peak. Elle has known him pretty much her entire life. He’s her brother’s loud, funny, unreliable and oh-so-sexy best friend. He drinks too much, sleeps around, and lives life like every day is his last—all because of his past experiences with love and his abusive father. He decided long ago that monogamy and parenthood were not for him. He adores his friends, and is as helpful and loyal as they come, but he enjoys living alone and being free. That is until his innocent flirting with Elle turns in to something more and they cross a line and sparks fly all over the place. They hide their relationship from every one they know while they try to figure out if the fire between them is lasting or will quickly burn-out—no need to upset big brother if they are just scratching an itch. Walker continues to play the part of a playboy convincingly, so when Braxton catches him and Elle in an intimate moment, tempers fly, and so do fists. Then with a misunderstanding, Walker crushes Elle. She is heartbroken. Braxton fires Walker and ends their friendship. That is until Aunt Doreen puts a boot in his behind and convinces him that he is worthy of love and Elle deserves to have him fight for her. He confronts Braxton, the truth comes out, and wins his girl back. In the epilogue, Walker asks Jefferson for Elle’s hand but Jefferson tells him that he is not the one he needs to get permission from, so he turns to Braxton. He proposes later that day, with his grandmother’s ring, in front of her entire family.
