The injury that could end his career in the SEALs.
The storm of the century that stranded him in Atlanta Airport.
The naked man he found on top of his girlfriend . . .
One thing was certain. Things couldn't get much worse. Then he met her.
Super stuck up.
Super engaged to be married...
It was just an odd job to tide him over while he waited to see if he'd heal enough to get back on the team. Close personal protection for a singer so famous even he'd heard of her. He was supposed to be her bodyguard. And guard her body he did. Day . . . and night. His new boss probably didn't have protection that close or that personal in mind.
He wasn't supposed to fall for her. Then again, she wasn't supposed to be so smart, and funny, and wounded, and in need of saving.
Now he has a decision to make. Quit the military career he'd worked half his life for and take the job as her permanent head of security, just to be near her. Forget about her and take any job his command would give him in his current broken condition. Or do the craziest thing of all. Confess his feelings and hope to make it work. With her. As a normal couple. A real couple, if that was even possible given who she was. It's an impossible decision, but he'll be damned if he'll let her stalker or his bullet make it for him.
When the military makes Navy SEAL sniper Adam Nichols their sacrificial lamb just two years shy of his retirement, he has no more reason to follow their rules. So the offer the shadowy figure representing an undisclosed organization makes him looks pretty good.
In exchange for more money than he ever made working for the command that betrayed him, Adam is to use any means necessary to free an American woman held hostage in China, without backup and without causing an international incident in the process.
With the promise of possible redemption, in addition to his obsession with the intriguing damsel in distress who kicks his protective side into high gear, his choice is clear.
But who is the tawny-skinned, sophisticated, captive beauty in the photo who rouses feelings he's long denied? The impeccably-dressed, ebony-haired stranger with the intelligent yet secretive golden-brown eyes who seems so completely opposite from his own beastly rough nature.
He's to rescue her, and protect her, and nothing else. Easier said than done. And after he does free her, is he handing her over to the good guys, or the bad? Or, perhaps, she’s the one he should be worried about. He only knows one thing for certain—a SEAL who’s lost the ability to trust his gut instincts is, quite simply, lost.

Day one in town proved one thing... I'm screwed.
Welcome to Mudville, home of KISSING BOOKS, a standalone small town, opposites attract, fish out of water romantic comedy with lots of kissing (and other things), a cocky farmer, a sassy misplaced heroine with too many animals, some crazy locals, a decades' old mystery, and a very happy ending for all of them!
He's become a beast.
Both fell from grace. Can a secret shadow organization help them rise from the ashes? Or is it all lies?
She was the sister of his ex-girlfriend. He never expected to see her again, especially not all grown up and standing in the Shaolin monastery where he went to hide from the world...and from himself.
She says she wants to save him. But why does she reek of CIA while claiming to work for an undisclosed organization that wants to hire him for a job that sounds like it could cost him what little is left of his soul? And why does he want her so badly?

The hot firemen you loved in Opposites Attract are back with their friends, but now they're wearing a lot less clothing and heating up the holidays like never before. Be prepared for secret identities, a sizzling calendar shoot, smoldering bachelor firemen up for auction, sexy Santas and a whole lot more!
A famous lifestyle maven who secretly can't cook? Good thing a sizzling hot fireman/calendar model knows his way around the kitchen and is there to rescue her and her charity event from certain disaster. If they detour to the bedroom on the way to the kitchen, even better.
When the real December calendar man gets sick, a rich department store owner has to step in for him and play Santa. Once he meets the pretty lady photographer sent to cover the event, things really start to heat up. The only problem is, she has no idea who he really is, and he’s not all that keen on telling her.
Can't Buy Me Love:
What do you get when you take one over-worked caterer on the brink of a nervous breakdown and add a hunky fireman for sale at the charity bachelor auction she's catering? You get a woman who finally finds the one gift to buy herself that she's never going to want to return.
If you love the old black-and-white classic holiday movies such as Christmas in Connecticut, Shop Around the Corner (or You've Got Mail) and Holiday Inn, you’ll love the three Nice & Naughty stories they inspired.
Don't miss Opposites Attract, Just Desserts and Black Cat, also in the Trilogy Collection.
I went my whole adult life with a crush on Cashel Morgan. Since we both graduated from Mudville High—Go, Hogs! But I never got out of the friend zone with him. Until now. More than a decade after graduation.
And why is Cash interested in something more now when he never was before? That’s the most annoying, frustrating, exasperating, ridiculous part. It’s all because another guy asked me on a date.
No doubt about it, Cash Morgan is going to drive me insane, if I’m not already there. Because in the middle of my personal drama in what was formerly a non-existent love life is the fact something wonky is happening at my store. Things going missing. Things being moved.
My friend Harper thinks it’s a ghost. Our friend Bethany thinks I’m just forgetful.
I’m not sure what I think—about any of it. The strange happenings in my shop. My date with the hot deputy investigating the oddities in my store. And especially not Cash.
All I know is that with all the craziness that’s happened around Mudville over the past six months, starting with Harper moving to town and her discovery of all the town’s secrets stashed in Agnes’s attic, we’d all better start to expect the unexpected.
Welcome back to Mudville!
If you read KISSING BOOKS, you've already met Red, the sweet and sassy red headed Main Street shop owner and Mudville native who befriends Harper, the city girl misplaced in a small town upstate.
RED HOT is a laugh-out-loud romp through the small town of Mudville featuring a love triangle one overworked shopkeeper never expected or wanted, a middle sibling who discovers he might possibly love someone else more than he loves himself, a mystery involving a very coveted missing cape, an estate sale full of clues, a surprise stranger—or two—no one saw coming, the quirky Mudville characters you’ve come to love, and some of the most adorable baby animals ever!
In his career as a Navy SEAL, Rocky Mangiano has been called a Jersey boy, a Yankee, and a few other choice names he shouldn’t repeat in mixed company, but never in his life has anyone called him “Daddy”. If the wrapped bundle of joy he finds on the doorstep is any indication, things are about to change and he has no clue what to do about it.
When the baby’s momma enters the picture things get even crazier. It soon becomes clear the only way to save her and her baby is to marry her, but given the fringe benefits that come along with the complications, Rocky’s not complaining. Not one little bit.
He was the guy who went directly from graduation to gunfire and didn’t look back…until now.
Twenty years later, he’s home. A little bit broken, but back for good. And with the help of man’s—or rather woman’s—best friend, I intend to make him mine.
Can a former geek win the star of the football team? I’m betting on it. Heck. Crazier things have happened here in Mudville.
Dog Days is a small town, opposites attract, romantic comedy featuring a grumpy wounded bad boy who doesn't want to be saved, and the sun-shiny savior determined to rescue both him and one very special dog.
One dinner and now mister handsome hottie’s two new Main Street enterprises are about to drive my bake shop out of business.
Apparently, I was just a pawn in his little game of Mudville Monopoly. Fine. He’d better hold on to his hotels, because I’m about to show Mister Moneybags exactly what it means to mess with a girl who spent some time on the wrong side of the B.&O. Railroad tracks.
That would be easier if he weren’t so devastatingly distracting. And if my only option for survival wasn’t for him to become my new boss.
Honey Buns features a single billionaire workaholic, a feisty small-town baker with a sewer grate-sized chip on her shoulder, some hundred-year old love letters guaranteed to make you cry, addictive diner fries, a dumpster diving stray cat and all of the small town crazy you’ve come to expect from Mudville.
All I know is I blame Harper for it. Apparently dating an author has done something to my brain.
But that’s not the worst of it. Oh no. My bigger problem is that my youngest brother is sprinting to the altar, intent on a Christmas wedding with a woman he’s known for barely a year.
Boone beating us to “I do” is not going to sit well with my girlfriend. It should go over about as well as the news that I’m the anonymous writer she loathes.
What will happen when I finally confess that I’m secretly Mister Naughty, the man she’s declared her arch-enemy? Hell if I know, but I don’t need any advice column to tell me that if I don't fix this, and fast, my holidays this year are not going to be merry.
Mister Naughty is a standalone romance that features a hot farmer, a frustrated author, all the holiday feels, plus all the Mudville small-town crazy you've come to expect, along with a bit of mystery and a Christmas wedding!
