New Release ~ SEEKING HAPPILY EVER AFTER by Elena Aitken



Happily Ever



Elena Aitken

Pretending to be engaged to a sexy, billionaire, single dad? Easy!
Not falling in love…much, much harder!


Nick Newton’s billionaire partying lifestyle was turned upside down when he unexpectedly became a single father. No one is as surprised as Nick to see that he’s completely fallen in love with the little girl and when his baby’s custody situation is threatened, he will do everything in his power to protect her.

The last thing Charlotte Davis expected when she walked into the bakery was to snuggle the sweetest baby girl and lie to a case worker that she’s engaged to be married to her father, it just happened. It’ll all be worth it if it helps Nick win custody of his daughter. And her growing feelings for the sexy single dad? Well, that does complicate things a little.

Sexy, smart, and amazing with babies…his fake fiancée has got it all. Including his heart. Nick is falling in love with both the women in his life, and for a while everything is perfect. But when real life—and the truth—catches up to them, everything goes wrong and it’s not just their love on the line, but their lives.

Not so picture perfect, Kate believes her life is what she wants.  Sometimes, being too busy takes the spotlight off the imperfections.  

Her two estranged sisters travel to the Inn for the funeral.  Initially, they feel like strangers and have to break through the years of separation to retrieve the bond they once had.

A silent mystery surrounding Grandma Nan is found in her journal as the sisters attempt to recycle the rundown Inn before the decision of to sell or not to sell.  

Nan's story is a loss and a finding of love, which plucks at Kate's heart.  Maybe she needs to lose and find love again, too.  Riding the stable horse gives her time to ponder the vacancies in her life and find the man, Alex, who tends the horses.  

Widowed several years ago, Alex teaches math and tends horses as a hobby.  Meeting Kate renews his spirit.  It may be slow and subtle, but love can happen again.

Several months of decision making about the Inn, her life, and where her love leads her, brings Kate to an ultimatum.  To settle, or to thrive... When one life ends, another begins!

Happy reading,

New Release - YOU'RE STILL THE ONE by Erika Kelly


You're Still The One

(A Calamity Falls Small Town Romance, Book 9)


Erika Kelly



️ Hot, inked, motorcycle-riding hero
️ Sexy wedding planner with a whole lot of explaining to do
️Steamy, small town romance
️Second chance romance
️And lots and lots of make-up sex

When Stella Cavanaugh gets the chance to come home after a seven-year, self-imposed exile, she takes it. She was born to be a wedding planner, and she hopes creating her sister's wedding might just earn her the redemption she's been hoping for.

The only thing holding her back is the fear of running into Griffin James, the love of her life. Because she not only hurt her family, she destroyed their relationship. Burned it right to the ground. And she just doesn't know if she can bear to find out he's moved on. She sure hasn't.

Griffin James has a roommate. The fourteen-year-old's staying with him while his dad's on deployment. Sounds simple, but the boy's grandparents are looking for any excuse to pull him out of the clutches of the big, tattooed owner of a bike shop. If Griffin can just stay under their radar, everything should be fine.

But that's just not possible when Stella bursts into their lives. Her sparkly spirit, her big, splashy ideas, and her impulsiveness always lead to disaster. He knew that...but he couldn't resist her.

And now she's on the run again, because...

The very things they love about each other are also what tear them apart.

He kissed an apology into her mouth, sorry for being gruff and cold to her, sorry for making her feel she was anything but beautiful, sexy, smart, and the most caring, loving person he’d ever known.

He kissed the woman who owned his heart. Kissed her with a mind full of memories and a heart full of want.

Setting a hand on his chest, she pushed him away. “It’s special for us, right? It’s not just my imagination?”

“Nope.” He clasped her wrist, moving in for another kiss. “There’s nothing better.”

But she yanked her hand away. “Stop trusting a photograph over my words, and you might just get another one.” Throwing him a saucy look, she threw open the door and left him sitting alone in the truck.

The Klutz Quotient


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before….but I am a klutz (just ask my DH—he can tell you how often I’ve walked into walls or tripped over nothing to fall flat on my face). I am uncoordinated and unbalanced. Have been all my life. I didn’t play sports when I was young because, you know, that would require a certain amount of coordination and I, sadly, just didn’t have it. My mother, bless her heart, even put me in ballet classes, hoping I would acquire some grace. It was an utter failure and after four years, we both quietly accepted that I would remain a klutz.
This has not changed over the years (in fact, it's gotten worse) and I’ve learned to live with it (really, what choice did I have?). It doesn’t really bother me. So what that I trip going up the stairs (even though I hold on to the banister)? Who cares that I walk into walls or trip over nothing (though I will admit, it’s getting a little more difficult to get up when I fall to the ground).
Why am I telling you this? Well, because I recently discovered that the klutz quotient has increased and I am as uncoordinated as ever (and it was witnessed….thankfully by the dogs and not another human being).
I’m not really big into exercise, though I do like walking and Zumba (and yes, even with Zumba…well, I’m not going to tell you what it looks like when I do it…that’s only for me and my mirror to know), but I was looking for something else to try, something that would fit in with the time I have available (time is a big issue for me--just not enough hours in the day and it’s too darn hot right now to go walking outside).
        I thought maybe yoga so I watched a few recordings on YouTube and tried
some of the poses…yeah, no, that didn’t work considering my issues with balance. If yoga wasn’t going to work for me, surely there were other things I could try.
Back to YouTube and I find these S.I.T. exercise videos. There are some routines that are only seven minutes long. Perfect. Fits into my time crunch. So I started doing them. Okay, let me rephrase that. I started trying to do them. Needless to say, hilarity ensued. Not only did my klutz quotient come out in full force (oh my gosh, did it ever!), but the dogs (because I was on the floor for some of these moves) thought I was playing so I had paws and long, wet tongues in my face. I am grateful the dogs do NOT laugh out loud, because I’m definitely sure they were laughing (heck, I was laughing, too!)
Thankfully, sitting at my computer and writing does not require coordination. I think I’ll go back to my story. It’s safer.  

Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

New Release - INCENDIARY ATTRACTION by Sarah Andre


Incendiary Attraction

Damaged Heroes, Book 4


Sarah Andre

Everything about this mission stinks. Including falling for his sexy new boss.


FBI Agent Jace Quinn has a massive chip on his shoulder. Held back to an inferior rank because he hasnt finished his degree, the decorated former SEAL has a problem with authority, especially the female kind. So when his new boss turns out to be the woman he flirted with at a cousin's wedding, he's horrified. Worse, so is she. Assigned to infiltrate a dangerous white supremacist group, Jace seizes the opportunity to prove to her this lone-wolf lawman doesn't need handling.

ATF supervisor Heidi Hall is still reeling from the suicide of an agent under her command, and her quest for redemption means that in this joint task force op she's going to work extra closely with the arrogant hottie who nearly talked her into bed. But in getting past Jace's defenses, every intimate debrief only deepens her desire. And her rookie undercover agent seems headed for disaster—personally and professionally, which will bring down both their careers.

When Jace's intel reveals a staggering terror plot is about to go down and Heidi discovers a traitor on her team, the pair race against time to thwart the deadly conspiracy before the city is blown sky high.
