The baby of the family, Daddy’s little girl… a lonely woman who deeply, desperately longed to be loved. Amelia Campbell was all that and so much more. A natural Cupid, she’d paired up several couples through the years. The only person she couldn’t seem to find a mate for was herself. Until he came along… the last person in the world she should fall for. 

Logan Gibson was as far from Amelia in life experiences as he could be. Battle-scarred and life-hardened, he was having trouble reconciling himself to life as a civilian. He’d seen too much of the dark side of people to believe in what she represented, and he just wanted to be left alone. Instead, he found himself returning to her time and again. 

Amelia was well aware he’d never choose someone like her. Logan knew she was too young, too innocent for him. But despite that knowledge, they were drawn to each other. When danger rears its ugly head, it takes both of them to figure out a way to protect her, and when the inevitable happens, all they can do is hold on to each other and hope to survive. 

Cricket Cove is the fifth Firefly Hollow book, a romance series with hints of paranormal elements. Set in Appalachia, the series spans decades, with this latest installment taking place in the early 1990s.

As Ty and Ellie maneuver through a minefield of wardrobe malfunctions, plumbing mishaps, and the world’s most awkward accidental dirty talk, discovering they have more in common than scorching sexual attraction threatens to crumble Ty’s walls for good…

Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months.

Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leave towns for his new job.

But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.

A former marine now turned corporate business owner, Richard “Rick” Thorne never did anything half-assed. He was an all-or-nothing kind of guy. Always had been. So giving his heart to the woman he loved was a no-brainer. She owned it, no question–until she ripped it from his chest and crushed it in the palm of her hand. And left him. Three years later just when he thought he’d finally gotten her out of his system, she’s back and she needs his help. Suddenly his life is turned upside down and he’s left torn between rushing to her rescue and slamming the door in her pretty face.

She’d made the biggest mistake of her life, running away. But Nylah James is a stubborn woman and once her mind is made up there’s no turning back. No matter how deep her regret she’d vowed to stay away, until something greater than her pride forced her to change her mind. Leaving him was the hardest thing she’d ever done. The only thing harder was coming back.

Warning: A BWWM romance, Love Hard, Love Deep contains scenes so hot they’ll make you blush. Some explicit language included. The first book in the series, it is a romantic suspense with elements of danger and action, humor, and intense emotional entanglements. This is a complete work with no cliffhanger, and has a HEA ending.

It was meant to be a one-night stand. One wicked night with an irresistibly sexy passenger. That’s all Air Marshal Gage Michaels can afford–his career comes before everything else. Too bad the snowpocalpyse of the century has different plans for him and Abby Winters. Before the night’s over, they find themselves snowed in at the most luxurious hotel in the city.

Abby’s scouting job of a NYC penthouse should be quick, simple, and definitely shouldn’t include a sexy-as-hell man messing up the 3000 count sheets that will be featured in her company’s next blockbuster hit. Not when she’s up for a promotion that could skyrocket her entire career in the film industry. Still, she can’t refuse what the weather gods so obviously want her to have. She’ll give in, just this once.

Leaving is tougher than either of them could have imagined. But they’re two people who have nothing in common, living on opposite coasts. There’s no way they can ever be together. Right?
