Single Title, Standalone Stories
I was in love with him all my life. I thought we were best friends. I thought he loved me too. The day everything changed between us, I gave myself to him. I thought we’d finally be together. I was his and he was mine. Then I found out it was all a big joke. I meant nothing to him. Never had. That was the day I left Dripping Springs and stopped being silly little Jorie. No one would hurt me like that again. If I never set foot in Dripping Springs again, it would be a day too soon.
But now my gran is dying and she wants me home. She’s the only one who ever really mattered to me. I can’t let her down.
The question is: Do I confront the boy who crushed me or do I move on and pretend it never happened, that he meant nothing to me?
Tough choice. He’s not hurting me again.
I know what happened. Jorie heard something she shouldn’t have, but I’m not the jerk she thinks I am. She left, taking my heart with her. I tried, but I could never find her. Never heard another word from her. Apparently, I meant nothing to this girl. For five years, I’ve hurt and let bitterness settle in. I buried myself in saving my family’s dying ranch and forgetting her. Now, things are looking up and I’m finally ready to move on.
But now, Jorie’s back and I’m torn: Do I make things right between us or do I keep moving on, forget our past and the first love who destroyed my heart?
Tough choice. She’s not hurting me again.
I know who you are!

Truth or Dare
I am so screwed…
When my brother’s best friend shows up at my vacation cottage to warn me about a violent incoming storm, I think it’s pretty sweet of him. Then he gets stranded with me…with no power.
Okay, that’s fine. We’re friends—sort of. I mean, I’ve known him for fifteen years.
Then he suggests a game of Truth or Dare. And I agree.
Big mistake. The game’s about to get wild, and secrets will be revealed—secrets like…I’m a virgin and he’s into spanking.
But hey, what could possibly go wrong?
It all started as a lie, and he thinks she’s someone else.
Now, they’re about to meet face-to-face for the first time. The truth will come out. And there will be consequences to be paid.
With F-16 butterflies dive-bombing her belly, she nervously awaits her soldier and the promises he made over the internet—promises that make her tremble with need. Promises she’s afraid he’ll withdraw when he learns she lied to him.
Fresh off deployment, he’s ready for some one-on-one action with the woman who captured his heart through cyberspace. Too bad, she’s not who he thinks she is. Either way, she’d better be ready for his special force. He’s been dreaming of this night for months, and her sweet behind is his.

Line of Duty
It's all fun and games until your dad becomes Prime Minister. Then it's all "Behave and here's your personal protective services officer. By the way, he'll be your constant shadow."
Great. As if things weren't bad enough.
Fact 1: He has zero sense of humor and never smiles.
Fact 2: He doesn't appreciate Dudley Do-Right or Mountie jokes.
Fact 3: He's just ruined my attempt to sneak out of town and have some protocol-free time.
And now we're stuck in a storm in the middle of nowhere.
"Oh, what shall we do?"
I guess it's my personal Mountie to the rescue. It's all in the line of duty, right?
Farmer Takes a Wife
Stuck in the middle of Dirt Patch Nowhere isn’t exactly where I thought I’d land when I signed up for this job.
At least, my problems are back in New York City. I have new issues here. I can whip up a dazzling ad campaign, but dinner? Not so much.
And due to some mix up, I wasn’t hired to be a cook, chef and nanny. Nope. My boss and apparent fiancé thinks I’m his mail-order bride. Well, when in Dirt Patch, go with the flow, right? Suddenly, I’m the farmer’s wife and mom to his adopted infant. With zero skills in either department.
I’ve always been one to figure things out. I’ll figure this out, too. Maybe. Because part of the deal is that I won’t fall in love, and I’m falling fast for both the farmer and his daughter.
Shirtless in New York
He’s buff. He’s Sexy. He’s shy as heck.
As a cover model, I’ve got a face and chest known around the world. By romance readers. But my photographer’s new assistant isn’t impressed. And let’s talk about beautiful. And my ex. That’s her. I’ll have to let my silent smolder speak for itself, because I may be on novel covers, but words are beyond me. Still, I'll have to figure this out. I want her back!
It’s not that I’m unimpressed. What girl wouldn’t admire all that lean hard muscle covered with warm very touchable skin? And that’s the problem. That's always been my problem. I don’t like that women around the world drool over Dixon. I don’t like it at all. I just want him to put on a shirt. ASAP!
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
That’s a problem up on my mountain. I deal with the blaze quickly. But the out-of-control inferno licking inside me isn’t so easily doused.
I thought I was okay with being a hermit. Until I smelled that smoke and Little Miss Sunshine invaded my pity party. For four years, I’ve rebuilt my life after the Army, but I’m broken. I’m finished. I’ve shut out everyone, because that’s the way I want things.
My sunshine is determined to fix this grumpy recluse. She doesn’t believe I’m broken. She’s wrong, but the longer she’s around, throwing around her happiness like glitter, the more I want to keep her. I’m just not sure I can.
I was already in trouble. That’s how I got drafted into be one of the chaperones for the school’s holiday trip for the students enrolled in the gifted program.
But when one little lamb goes missing, it’s up to this shepherd to track her down.
The group went on to their next destination while she and I are stranded behind in a blizzard right before Christmas. It’s exactly the kind of story to make tabloids: the teacher and his barely legal student. It’s bad. Real bad.
How much worse could it be if she ends up knocked up? Because my little lamb is gifted in more ways than brains, and I’m going to give her a gift, too—one that takes months to arrive and will tie her to me forever.
Who doesn’t dream of meeting their rock idol? And what are the chances of running into him on the concourse outside the concert venue? It’s a dream come true. Obviously, it’s fate.
Until he’s a total jerk.
I’m tempted to leave the concert, but heck no, I spent too much money for my front row ticket. Annoyed, I take my seat and glare at him. Not that he’ll know, but it will make me feel better until I get home and rip up every picture I have of him.
But he does know.
To my shock, security comes for me at the intermission. Crap. This won’t end well, will it?
This was already an utter dumpster-fire of a day. Broken guitar strings, a cut on my chord hand, a brother who’s having a diabetic event right before we’re supposed to go onstage… Then I run into the cutest little groupie I’ve ever seen. I don’t have time for this. I’ve never had time for females—at all. I cut her dead before I do something I’ll regret. Like drag her onto the tour bus and never let her go.
Only I do regret it. And when she takes her place in front of me and proceeds to shoot daggers at me, I know I’ve made a huge mistake. Not only is this a woman I need to pursue, but she’s mine.
The tour bus option seems like a good idea after all…

Merry Anna Zania is my nemesis. And by that, I mean she fills my thoughts night and day. I start the morning carpooling with her and end it... Well, let's just say she's in my head and her name is on my lips. But I'm just the boy next door. I don't stand a chance.

Twelve Dates of Christmas
The first time I see her, she’s on her way to a date.
Oh, not a real date. It’s one of those speed dating things. Her sister talked her into it, and my girl couldn’t have looked less thrilled.
Yes. My girl. When you know you know.
I ditch everything and follow her inside. Big client? Who cares. I have billions, and this is the girl of my dreams.
There might be twelve quick dates at this thing, but now, the only guy she sees is me. Thankfully, she thinks it’s funny, even if she also thinks I’m kind of crazy. The event turns out to be our first date.
One down, eleven to go. When Christmas rolls around, and we’ve had twelve real dates, it will be my gold ring on her finger.
That is…if I can convince her I’m serious and not the rudderless guy she seems to think I am. Maybe I should tell her about my businesses and my billions… Nah. Not yet.
Nanny to a Guy
I have two problems… And Luca DeMilo is both of them.
I’ve been a nanny for seven years, and in all that time, I’ve only worked for two-parent families or single moms. Not…single dads. But when I’m get a new assignment—the only one available right now—it’s for a guy.
And as it turns out, not just any guy. Nope. It’s Luca freaking DeMilo, the boy I’ve had a crush on since…oh…forever. Only he’s no boy anymore. And I’m pretty sure he never noticed me way back when.
I should have said no. Should have, but I didn't.
Monday morning, I’m on his doorstep and praying he’s aged poorly.
Nope. No such luck. One look into his intense blue eyes, and I swoon. Internally, of course. I’m a professional, and I need this job as the new nanny for his little squid. Squid is his term, not mine. His sweet little girl is as adorable as he’s gorgeous, though she seems to have as many arms as the afore mentioned beast. My heart melts the second I meet her.
So… Yeah. There was no way “no” is anywhere in my vocabulary. Be his daughter’s nanny? Sign. Me. Up.
I just have to keep my not-so-little crush as a not-so-little secret.
Ten years ago, an unspeakable horror stole my voice. Doctors don't know why. But my ability to speak was buried deep with my parents. Not a word has come from me since. The Sparrow ceased her song.
And then I met Hudson. He's so full of life, and once he sees me, so intent on everything I do. He wants to change the unspeakable agony inside me to unspeakable joy in his arms.
It scares me, but... There's also nothing in the world I could want more.
