The first time I met Travis Maxwell, he thought I was a damsel in distress—and while “rescuing” me, he completely charmed me. We spent a glorious week together, knowing that we'd go our separate ways in the end.
One month later, two blue lines turn my life upside down.
I'm pregnant. And the number Travis gave me is no longer in service.
Hurt and shocked, I do the right thing and track him down. We agree to be friends, nothing more, and to raise our child. Easier said than done.
Travis transforms from a master flirt to a caveman, intent on protecting me, and our unborn baby. He spoils me and tends to all my cravings: including supplying my favorite cupcakes on demand and watching Netflix with me.
As we bicker about which season of Bridgerton is better, he suddenly tells me that he wants me.
That he needs me. And I need him too.
But I want him to want me for me, not just because of the baby.
But I fear he's mixing up his feelings and I don't think that's the right recipe for forever …
Sienna Hensley-Bennett loves everything about the Christmas season, from hanging decorations to the cozy get-togethers with her family. Despite being part of the well-known Bennett family, Sienna is determined to first gather experience before joining their business. Her job at Statham department store is perfect for that. But her new boss, Winston Statham, is going to be a slight problem.
Winston is broody, dictatorial, and sexy as all get out.
For Winston Statham, Christmas is just a reminder of the deadline looming ahead this year. Saving the store his parents build is his top priority. At least until he finds his branding manager singing and dancing to carols while hanging twinkling lights in his favorite meeting room.
He can't get the sexy sway of her hips out of his mind…or her determination to make him smile. But when he asks her to stay overtime, work isn't the only thing on his mind. Before long, he's willing to do anything for one more kiss, one more night together. Winston falls so hard for Sienna, that he can't imagine ever letting her go.
But with his future up in the air, can he promise her anything more than an unforgettable Christmas season?
Jake Whitley and I start on the wrong foot. And then it goes downhill from there.
After my career implodes, I’m determined to make a living with my new event planning business.
But Jake and I are at odds from the moment I step on his private plane.
He wants to get rid of me. I want to throw his grandmother the celebration of a lifetime…on his property in Martha’s Vineyard.
He’s arrogant and a grump and acts like he owns the world. He’s also hot as hell, but I’d never cross that line. I can’t afford another mistake in my professional life. Not that Jake is attracted to me.
Just when I brace myself for another heated conversation, I discover a completely different man under the façade he’s created. He claims he’s always wanted me.
The last thing I need is for this gorgeous man to tilt my world on its axis. But Jake has other ideas, and so does his matchmaking grandmother.
Then she sold the house. Now the devil himself is my landlord and neighbor since I live in the guesthouse on his property. Declan Maxwell is moody, unreasonable, and takes himself far too seriously. Unfortunately for me, he’s also damn sexy.
When he shows up on my doorstep in the middle of the night ordering me to turn down the music, I give him hell. Secretly, I’m also checking him out. We go toe to toe like this almost every night.
The man is impossible. But here’s the thing. I need a place to stay while I save for my business and this place is a steal. So, I need to put up with this handsome devil, though from a distance—because he’s far too gorgeous.
Then one day I come home injured from work and he surprises me by taking care of me.
And kissing me.
And just like that, all my best intentions go up in smoke.
Today, he's my new boss, who I can't seem to please.
Bad luck seems to follow me. Last night, I grabbed a drink at the bar near my new workplace.
I met the most sophisticated man when he “stole” my table. We bantered and danced, and I went home with a stranger for the first time in my life.
The next morning, I find out my hot one-night stand is my new boss. Gone is the playful, charming man from last night. Luke Maxwell is all business, acting as if our night together never happened.
He’s impossible to please, but I’m determined to succeed. This job is my chance to prove myself and put my past—and my ex—behind me. I’m not going to mess this up.
But then we go on a business trip together and end up stranded for the night. Instead of discussing our project, he kisses me in the elevator and throws a jealous fit, claiming I’m his.
Apparently, I’m not the only one who can’t forget our evening together after all.
1. Make sure every day my daughter, Paisley, knows she’s number one in my life. No. Matter. What.
2. Keep contact with my cheating ex-wife to a minimum.
3. Turn Maxwell Wineries into a legacy that keeps Paisley set for life.
When I hire Lexi to look after my daughter, I realize I need another rule: don’t pursue Paisley’s nanny.
But even if I had that rule it wouldn’t matter. Because I'm breaking it already.
Helping celebrities rehabilitate their image is my job, and I’m a pro. I don’t make mistakes. And I definitely don’t flirt with clients. Ever. There is just one little problem with my newest client.
Tyler Maxwell is every woman’s dream come true. He’s hot, protective, and so damn tempting--especially when he's coaching kids’ hockey.
Every time he flexes those muscled arms, I can’t help but stare at them. And watching a semi-naked Tyler swim in a pool is no hardship whatsoever.
But when he catches me in the act and shamelessly flirts with me, I realize I’m in over my head.
Do I dare have a fling and risk my heart with a player who’s smoother than ice?
After my almost-marriage-proposal (don't ask) blows up in my face, I'm done with romance. My family says I'm turning into a broody version of myself, but I'm determined to take New York by storm and steer clear of serious relationships. That's the plan. That's the goal.
Nothing is getting in the way of that-not even my sexy personal trainer. Mel Dawson keeps talking me into doing things, like watching the sunset and slowing down to enjoy life. And even though I've sworn off all that, I keep giving in to her.
Spending time with Mel is just what I need. When she trains me, and I watch her body, I'm constantly fantasizing about exploring every inch of it.
I'm used to taking chances in the boardroom, but not in my personal life. Not anymore. How much am I willing to risk for a chance to make her mine?
Christopher isn’t looking to settle down, but meeting Victoria turns his world upside down. Her laughter is contagious, and her beautiful lips and curves are too tempting.
Victoria Hensley is determined not to fall under Christopher’s spell, even though the man is hotter than sin, and his flirty banter makes her toes curl. But Christopher is her client, and she knows better than to get involved with clients. Besides, Victoria isn’t looking for love. After her parents‘ death, Victoria is raising her much younger siblings, and she can’t afford any mistakes.
But Victoria and Christopher‘s chemistry is not just the sparks-flying kind, but the downright explosive kind. Before she knows it, Christopher is training her brother Lucas for soccer tryouts, and reading good-night stories to her sister Chloe.
Victoria wants to resist him, but Christopher is determined, stubborn and. . .oh-so-persuasive. When their attraction and connection both spiral out of control, will they be able to risk it all for a love that is far too tempting?
It’s hard to be Nate Becker in a Bennett world. But we’ve always considered ourselves family.
I travel the world as a TV producer, never able to spend much time with them. Which might be a good thing. Because my best friend’s little sister has never felt like that to me. That sexy little spitfire has always caught my attention. If I don’t stick around too long, Sebastian will never notice the way I look at her.
But Alice Bennett has other plans.
Her new restaurant would be a perfect feature on one of my network’s shows.
It’s almost too easy to set up meetings with her. Invent excuses to need more information. To boss her around the way she seems to like. It’s harmless, I tell myself. I’m moving to London in three weeks, I tell myself. I’m not going to upset Sebastian, I tell myself. Famous last words.
I can’t cross the line with her. We can’t jeopardize the family relationships. But between stolen kisses and wicked-hot nights, it’s spinning out of our control. When the chance of a lifetime comes knocking at my door, it’s time to decide what has more allure–my career, or a chance with her?
Can be enjoyed as standalone.

One look at her, and he realizes that not flirting with her will be a lot harder than he thought, and not just because she’s stunning. He enjoys her laughter and merciless teasing. How can he stay away when all he wants is to get closer?

Ellie knows that Ian isn’t looking for forever though. After all, her brother warned her that Ian was a sworn bachelor. And if she’s honest with herself, Ellie isn’t ready for love either. She’s never let anyone in before. But she can’t help giving in to the growing bond between her and Ian, even if it means putting her heart on the line.
