I pursue. She runs.
I’ve wanted Petra since the first time I saw her. And she’s hated me since about that same moment. Or maybe it was from the moment I gave her that wicked smile and called her Pet. Maybe a mistake, but I knew she’d be mine.
Four years later and she’s still giving me the cold shoulder. That doesn’t stop me. Not really. My pursuit’s just gotten a little more subtle. But time’s running out. Soon we’ll be off to our futures and I don’t want to head in different directions.
Imagine my surprise when my dad elopes and comes home with my new mom and stepsister. My Pet’s in the bedroom next to mine and it just got a lot harder for her to avoid me. And a lot icier as that cold shoulder gets even colder. If that’s how she wants to be...
Finding His Love
(Cherish Cove: The Wellston - Book 2)
I fell in love. She ghosted me.
I’m not going away, though. When I got sent to New York for spring break, I wasn’t thrilled. I know. Oh poor me. Thing is, I had other plans. Then I met Willa and everything I thought I knew about my life changed. My entire purpose for living became her.
But she disappeared—though not before telling me she had someone back home and this was a fling. I saw red. She’s mine and that’s that!
Only… My parents have debutantes waiting in the wings for me. A family like mine? You marry for power, not for love. I have until graduation to come to terms with “the plan.” Then I find Willa and everything changes again. I won’t be falling in line. I’ve already fallen for Willa. And that guy she had back home? He doesn’t exist. She just doesn’t believe long-distance relationships can ever work. How can I convince her we will survive, and we won’t ever be apart for long?
Any way I can. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
Waiting For You
(Cherish Cove: The Wellston - Book 3)
She thinks she’s not good enough; I know I’m not good enough for her.
To say my family is screwed up is an understatement. But no one knows what happens in the big mansion on the hill. My mom abuses everyone: the help, my dad…me. Yeah, that’s the stuff people don’t talk about, right? Then there’s my uncle. He likes boys…girls…anyone vulnerable to him. No one knows about that. But I do. I’ve learned how to stay safe. How to bide my time, hide and throw one hell of a punch. Whatever is necessary.
Then there’s Reba. She works for my family, and I’ve been in love with her since almost the day I first laid eyes on her. My uncle has eyes on her, too. Thankfully, she’s been safe so far, but the stakes are rising. Now, it’s up to me. I’ll do anything I have to, to keep her safe, to bide my time until she finds me worthy of her love. If that ever happens.
If I have to, I’ll wait forever.
Finding His Light
(Cherish Cove: The Wellston - Book 4)
I went from bright future to lost in the dark.
I wasn’t intended to be a father at eighteen—a father figure anyway. It was always my mom and us four kids. When my mom loses her life to cancer no one knew she had, it’s suddenly me and my three little sisters. I’m struggling to finish school and keep their lives normal.
Everything I do is for them, until a chance meeting at a coffee shop brings me face to face with a woman who shines light into my soul. Bright, incandescent light that brings hope to the darkest places of my soul, even though she’s alone too and raising her two year old nephew. We can be friends, but neither of us has space within us for a relationship.
Until my deadbeat father comes calling, looking for a paycheck. From both of us. Our only path forward is together. In a marriage of convenience. We’re friends. We can do this. If I can manage to keep my hands off my temporary wife.
CHALLENGE NOT ACCEPTED.
(Cherish Cove: The Wellston - Book 5/ In the Zone - Prequel)
I make my own path, and it’s leading me right to her.
I’m a rule breaker. Yeah, I admit it. That’s how it happened. It was my last hurrah before the end of my my senior year. Fake ID in hand, I went to a bar miles from home, thinking I’d party away my school break. And I met her. Did I intend a one-night stand? Nope. Did I think I’d fall head over heels in love? Nope. Did I think I’d wake up alone after she ran out? Nope. Did I expect to see her at school…as my teacher…one week later? Not even close.
I saw the fire burning in her eyes, but she wouldn’t give me the time of day—unless it was to tell me I was late for class. Then she suddenly disappeared, taking my heart with her. When I finally see her again, I’m in for the shock of my life. She’s pregnant, and the baby is most definitely mine. She thinks I’m a rule breaker, that I’ll just walk away. She couldn’t be more wrong. I’ll walk the straight and narrow for her.
Follow the rules? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
