A Country Kind of Love

Second chances … and the secrets that sabotage them.

CeCe Bixby’s life is in flux. After being abandoned by her husband six years earlier she’s managed to cope by focusing on her work as a reporter and on being a good mom to her young son. When her name is leaked in connection with a dangerously controversial story, a fresh start in small town Huckleberry Ridge, Idaho feels safe … until she meets her new landlord, a handsome widower who just may wield the key to her tightly sealed heart.

Shane Wickham is shackled with regret. Ever since playing an unintentional role in his wife’s death, he’s denied himself a second chance at happiness. But once he meets his attractive but fearful new tenant, he feels compelled to help her, and his firm resolve to keep his distance begins to crumble.

Despite an undeniable attraction to Shane, CeCe is terrified to lower her guard and expose herself and her son to the risk of more heartbreak. And though Shane secretly longs to put yesterday behind him, his guilt won’t allow him to pursue the possibility of new love.

Can they find a way to forge a future together, or will regret and deception doom the chance to repair two damaged hearts?

The forbidden Baller’s Secret Baby

A billionaire football star is used to the spotlight, but not to surprises like this. A revelation hits him like a linebacker tackle; though lost years ago, his college love is in the same town. Secrets are exposed, but the playing field is not even.

Seeing Chloe, who was once Deborah, my college sweetheart, is a revelation that shakes my world. She’s no longer the girl I knew but a successful realtor and mother, fiercely guarding her independence and a child. Her transformation from my lost love to this enigmatic woman is bewildering.

Every interaction is a flashback to what we had and a confrontation with what she’s become. With mannerisms eerily reminiscent of our shared past, the child with my eyes raises questions I’m not ready to answer. As a man used to facing challenges on the football field, this personal puzzle is the most daunting game I’ve ever played.

This reveal is my most formidable opponent yet. Can our past love navigate the truths and secrets, or are we destined for a final timeout?

Stuck Fake Dating My Brother’s Best Friend

Locked in a storage room with my brother’s best friend, was never my plan. Returning home to Sumner Falls wasn’t my choice either, but I couldn’t say no to an old friend. Minutes after crossing the threshold into town there he was, and there I went… I nearly rear-ended another car when I spotted Chad, my teenage secret crush, strolling down the sidewalk. I didn’t know it then, but I was about to crash for real…into a fake relationship with Chad, for the sake of my brother and my own reputation. Stuck together with no food, no phone and a cot for one was not how I imagined a night alone with Chad Gallagher. Now we’re forced into a charade that will leave me either hating Chad or loving him even more.

Accidental Proposal

She thought she had put him and that humiliating experience firmly where they belonged. In her past and out of her mind. But all it took was one meeting… Jhanvi Vasugi, who runs an event management company, is shocked when she unexpectedly comes face-to-face with a devastatingly handsome face from her past—Vikranth Warrier. It is a meeting that Jhanvi had long dreaded and anticipated in equal measure. A meeting that brought back feelings of guilt, nervousness and, to her utter disappointment, love. Learning that he is on the verge of getting engaged, she decides to lock her heart and her feelings in a desperate attempt to save herself from the sure disappointment that will ensue and break her heart. Yet again. However, when she is repeatedly thrown into forced proximity with the man she wants to avoid at all costs, she is unable to fight the attraction that is getting stronger with the moment. Will she listen to her mind and stay away from him? Or will she succumb to what her heart has been screaming every single moment since she saw him—even though she faces the risk of another humiliation?

And he’s not happy about it. But it doesn’t matter because she’s married now.

Mara is finally putting her disastrous rebound marriage behind her. She’s happy to spend a comforting weekend with her enormous, loving family. But that changes when she realizes her great-grandmother, Gigi, has invited her ex-boyfriend.

Mara is steaming mad, but her traitorous body feels a different kind of heat.

Gigi knows that Mara and Axl belong together. And she’s not above using her party to give them the opportunity to see it.

The searing chemistry between them is as hot as ever, but Mara’s ex-husband wants a second chance too…

The One is a standalone, steamy second chance romance, with an HEA and no cheating.

A stubborn hero who realizes what he’s lost and will do whatever he needs to do to win back a feisty, even more stubborn heroine, whose eye is on her future not her past.

So much for the American Dream. After twenty years of marriage, successful careers, and two teenage boys, Angie and Mac’s relationship dissolves into disappointment and resentment. Overworked and underappreciated, the toll of their problems fizzles their dream of happily ever after.
Smacked in the face with failure, Steve “Mac” MacKey refuses to give up so easily, and strategizes how to win back his wife. So a plan to confront her by leveraging the boys backfires on him. In the most wonderfully unexpected way.
Angie’s misery in marriage is topped only by her misery without Mac. When she confronts Mac in his office, she learns just how fine that line is between lust and anger. And when she thought her husband couldn’t care any less about her, he sparked a new fire inside her she didn’t know existed . . . that felt so damn good.

Sex may not solve everything, and it’s a far cry from making any real changes, or fixing her emotional rollercoaster.

Can they last that ride long enough to save their marriage, or are their rifts and broken promises too deep to cross?
“Anyone who’s ever been in a long-termrelationship can relate to this story. Love, angst, temptation, redemption, andmost of all, passion. There’s a new Alpha in town, and he knows what he wants!The question is, does he deserve it?”~Samantha A. Cole, USA Today bestselling author
