She didn’t want him home any more than he wanted to be there…
Ben Sumner left the suffocating small town of Canyon Creek, Colorado ten years ago and never looked back. Until father’s death brings him home. He and his brothers soon discover that his parents have leveraged the family land in order to secure funds to build their dream lodge. If Ben and his brothers don’t find a solution fast, his mother could lose everything.
After years of struggling to find her place in the world, Maggie Lawrence has discovered where she belongs—at the Lodge at Canyon Creek. Managing the facility, working alongside the staff and the owners, she’s found her calling, and a family she never had before. But all that is threatened when Ben comes waltzing in, acting as if he knows what’s best and taking over her job.
She’ll fight tooth and nail to keep her position at the lodge, even if that means battling the oh-so-sexy Ben Sumner every step of the way. Now she just has to figure out how to keep her hands off the man while she works to keep the independent life she’s finally found.
Born to be My Baby is the first book in the Sumner Brothers Series and can be read as a standalone book.

Sometimes you win. Sometimes you learn a lesson. Usually the hard way.
This time the lesson was all about closure, and Elizabeth Stoneham knew with every brain cell she possessed that the lesson was going to be another hard one.
Elizabeth returns to Houston to carry out her legal responsibilities as the executrix of her mother’s estate. She’d left home nearly ten years ago. In all those years, she’d not visited or called her mother, and her mother had reciprocated—as if they had a silent mutual understanding to leave each other in peace. Peace? She’d found none in her self-imposed exile in Dallas.
After all this time, why had her mother…lured her back? That’s what naming her as executrix was. A lure. Bait for the trap. Since Elizabeth had followed in her adored father’s footsteps and become a lawyer, her mother knew she wouldn’t ignore a legal responsibility.
Perhaps her mother had mellowed as she’d grown older? Did she seek closure from the grave? No. Closure was a myth woven from hope and longing. There would be no closure, but maybe she’d be able to solve the biggest mystery of her life—why her mother had hated her.
Despite her resolve, staying at her mother’s house brings back all the memories she’d worked so hard to smother. In a moment of weakness, she allows herself to be swept away by her mother’s captivating new neighbor. She wants the mindlessness of passion to banish the pain—at least for a little while.
The only problem with that kind of temporary solution is that a woman can become ensnared if she’s not careful.
