So much for love.
Christy Harris' experience with men could be summed up in one word. Awful. From growing up with an absent father to the abusive boyfriend willing to chase her across the country to stay in control of every aspect of her life, all men have ever taught her is that they take what they want. No matter the cost.
So much for happiness.
The moment Chet laid eyes on her, he knew she was different. So, naturally, when he saw that she was neck deep in trouble he had to step in. It's the way he was raised. Watching a man—a stranger no less—stand up for her is enough to make Christy question everything she thought she knew. There's no denying the spark between them. Can Chet really be who he seems? Is he offering protection, or more control?
Taking What Is Mine is a standalone contemporary romance set in a small town in rural Colorado. Emotional. Honest. Real.
Black sheep. Rebel. Bad boy.
I've been called that and worse. Even deserved it a time or two.
I'm not all bad—just misunderstood. Cut from a different cloth. My family doesn’t get what makes me tick and I’m tired of trying to make them see.
So, I'm getting the hell out. Out of this small-town way of life, and out of this family. Bags packed. One way ticket purchased. There's only one problem.
Or if you want to be specific, the baby she's carrying.
She swears it's mine. With any other woman I'd laugh her right out the door.
The trouble is, I think this one is telling the truth.
I lost my journal. No big deal, right? It’s only the most honest parts of me. Raw. Uncensored. Humiliating. It’s a race against time to get it back before someone finds it.
Except someone did find it. And read it. AND COMMENTED.
Sexual boundaries aren’t just crossed in his message, they’re obliterated. His words drop my jaw and flush my cheeks, then piss me off. He has the audacity to demand I contact him. Not gonna happen, buddy.
Except, after a tequila-fueled tirade, I do just that…
The man I find overflows with kindness and humor and depth. I don’t even know his name, but I fall in love with his mind, opening up in ways I never have with anyone. I'm vulnerable. Bare. Real.
Meanwhile, I meet Lucas Hutton—a Marine with scars covering his body, heart, and soul.
The chemistry between us is a force of nature, beautiful, powerful, and impossible to ignore.
His intensity leaves me reeling. The physical attraction has me melting. I want to pull back his layers and find the man hiding under that scowling exterior.
Mind versus body.
Physical versus mental.
Kind versus passionate.
I have to choose between them.
I just don’t know how I can.
Beyond Words is a poignant standalone contemporary romance. Heat, heart, and hilarity wait for you in this unconventional love triangle with no cheating and a guaranteed happily ever after!
I'm structure. She's chaos. I'm practicality. She's spontaneity. She's off-limits. Nothing, and I mean nothing, will happen between us.
Jack Cooper’s a devoted single dad, just trying to make it through the morning without burning breakfast. His life is all about lists and rules and boundaries.
Meanwhile, I’m a shameless free spirit looking for signs from the universe.
And Jack? He's my sign all right…and he's flippin’ hot. Like total package, scream-his-name-while-biting-a-pillow hot.
But he's sworn off dating. And we're total opposites.
The last thing I want is to further complicate his life.
So what if I melt a little every time he smiles? Who cares if I have a thing for dark hair and blue eyes that caress my body when he looks at me?
All right, so I can’t stop fantasizing about the guy and completely adore his kids. It's not like that should stop me from trying to help the guy out...right?
Our story is a slow dance of seduction...
Wyatt Hutton’s pale blue eyes steal my breath—though I only see them for a second before he refuses to look at me again.
He’s older than me. By way too much. If that wasn't enough to keep us apart, the truth of our families should do the trick.
His father, a drunk and a cheat.
My mother? The mistress.
But life keeps bringing us together again.
I don't want to need him, but Wyatt is the one I turn to when things fall to pieces. And while he tries to keep his distance, he's just as drawn to me as I am to him.
We fight our feelings.
We fight our families.
We even fight fate.
Maybe it’s time we fight for each other instead…
"...a modern day star-crossed lover story." (...with a happily ever after, of course!)
This emotional age-gap/forbidden contemporary romance has all the joy and angst you can expect from Abby Brooks. BEYOND LOVE can be read as a standalone, but to get the most out of the experience, read the Hutton Family series in order.
The first time I meet Joe Channing he’s dressed head-to-toe in black, lurking around my grandmother's house.
Up to no good? All signs point to yes.
Dangerous? Obviously. Just look at him.
Sexy as hell? With those blue eyes and that wicked smile—I mean, he isn’t NOT good-looking...
The second time I see him, he’s trying to kill my grandmother. At least it looks that way. At first. Maybe I misjudged the situation, but that doesn’t mean I misjudged him.
Joe and I? We’re oil and water. Gasoline and a flame. Great hair and a windy day.
I’m a doctor. I help sick kids. As for him? I suspect serial killer with his sights set on my grandma. While I'd be happy to never see him again, she falls for him hook, line, and sinker, then hires him to renovate her house.
I’ve never met someone who makes me feel so…
I want to grab him. And shake him. And kiss him until he can't see straight...
Hold on. Say what now?
A full-length, standalone romantic comedy filled with hilarious characters and sizzling chemistry. You'll adore this grumpy hero and his sassy heroine as they stumble into their happily ever after. Laugh, swoon, and fall in love!
I was six the first time I proposed. Twenty years later, will she say I do?
In kindergarten, I fell in love with Maisie Brown. In seventh grade, she moved out of state. Now, she’s back…
…but only for a week.
When fate brings Maisie back to me, it’s clear life has been good to her. My childhood best friend, that shy little girl who never had enough to eat, she grew into a gorgeous woman wearing confidence like a designer dress. And the connection between us? It grew, too…into chemistry so explosive the world might catch fire. Six-year-old me was a genius. Maisie and I were made for each other, even if she does like to "go, go, go," while I prefer to "go with the flow."
But my roots—my family, my business, my history—are firmly planted in Key West and her shiny new life sparkles in Los Angeles. When this week ends, so does whatever this is between us…along with my chance to make good on my childhood promise.
Hank comes from a large, close-knit family of six boys. The Wildes are pillars of the community, and the family’s ranch, the oldest in the county, stretches back generations.
Mollie can count her family on two fingers, a cousin she thinks of like a sister and a niece who she loves more than anything. The only things associated with the Williams’ name are that she’s the happy-go-lucky waitress in the town’s only diner, and the string of felony convictions tied to her dad, uncle, and cousin.
None of that matters to Hank and Mollie, though. All they care about is how much better life is when they’re together.
But they discover happiness comes at a price when their worlds collide, unleashing chaos in their small community.
With Hank’s family suffering a tragic accident and Mollie’s past resurfacing, their future together is anything but certain.
Tragedy brought me home from war. Twice.
The first brought me to her.
The second might just tear us apart.
Military life means tomorrow is promised to no one. As a captain in the Army, I understand that reality better than most. My focus has always been defending my country and protecting the men and women in my command.
With one shy smile and a few sassy comebacks, she shifts my world. Now my focus is protecting the single mom waiting for me back home.
Even if that means defending her from me...
Gabe Wilde was my protector. My knight in shining armor.
We had our future planned out—together—down to the names of our unborn children. Everything was going according to plan...until it wasn't.
Sometimes life happens that way.
When I left for college, I never thought I'd be back home for anything longer than a visit. Too many ghosts reminding me of the girl who got away.
By the time I left for college, my heart was broken, and I was sure I would never feel love like that again. I wasn't sure I even wanted to.
After Pop was killed in a car accident, I had to come home. Now, after being back for so long, I can't help but wonder what could have been if I hadn't been in such a hurry to leave.
Coming home to start over again at thirty-five, well, it wasn't exactly part of my plan. But Imagine my surprise when I run into the one and only Gabe Wilde.
Sometimes life happens that way.
Can true love survive almost two decades apart?
Claiming What Is Mine is a standalone contemporary romance set in a small town in rural Colorado. Emotional. Honest. Real.
Two roommates. One pact. A kiss that changes everything.
Moving in with Eli Hutton was supposed to keep my heart safe. After both our relationships crashed and burned, cohabitation seemed like a no-brainer. A reset from chaos back to stability. A chance to protect one another from Cupid and his stupid little arrows.
Sure, he’s adorable… Hilarious… Gorgeous… And so charming he makes me feel like the brightest star in the sky…
Alright, fine. The man is a sinfully sexy angel sent to tempt me each and every day. (Don’t judge. No one can resist him. You’ll see.)
All that aside, Eli’s like a brother to me. And for him, I’m just one of the guys.
But somewhere along the line, I did the one thing I swore I wouldn’t. I fell in love. With him. It was only a little—at first. Then one accidental kiss sent my traitorous heart into overdrive.
I swear, it’s just a phase. I’m sure it’ll pass with time. I just need to keep my feelings secret until things go back to normal.
Then again, the heart wants what the heart wants…and mine wants him.
Warning! This standalone friends-to-lovers romance includes:
- A broken accidental nudity clause
- A strange interaction with a Pinky Finger
- Kindle-melting chemistry
- And a strip club named Eggplant
You know that feeling when the famous musician you're totally crushing on shows up at your brother’s wedding dressed as Elvis?
Really? Huh. Guess it’s just me...
Collin West isn't just hot. And he's not just 'the next big thing,' either. He's the biggest thing to happen to music since...music. He's got heart. And soul. And the most adorable ginger hair that’s somehow always a little mussed. Add in his bangin' body and bedroom eyes and it's easy to see why the whole world loves him.
And he wants me.
Harlow Hutton. Not-so-secret lover of all things Collin West. Dreamer of big dreams. Thinker of deep thoughts.
He falls into my life like a fairy tale, whisking me away on a champagne and glitter adventure around the world. London. Paris. Rome. It's a dream come true...
But every princess has a villain. Throw in some demons from Collin's past and our dream might actually be a nightmare...
One thing's for sure, hiding in the swirl of music and passion, is the glimmer of a happily-ever-after bigger than I ever imagined possible.
I only hope we don't get burned in the process...
