The One

Can a second chance with a first love lead to happily ever after?
Axl never believed in love until he met Mara. But four years later, she dumped him. Seeing her after two years at her great-grandparents’ party, Axl realizes he’s still in love with her.

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.

Author’s note: Second chance romance. Opposites attract. Playing with fire. A spunky great-grandmother who knows a thing or two about love. 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.

Liam (Embers, #1)

An enemies-to-lovers instalove short and steamy romance
Get to know this smokin’ Aussie alpha as he chases down his Happily Ever After in this swoony enemies-to-lovers insta-romance.


LIAM
Sure, I have a thing about defending the people I love, and sometimes I take it a bit too far.
I’m aware Kath thinks that I’m a bit of a jerk and standoffish.

But tonight’s the night I’m going to let her in.
It’s not like I have much choice in the matter.
Kath looks so incredibly sexy in that dress, and the chemistry between us is undeniable.
Yup, I’ve noticed the way she’s been unable to look away from me.

She can give me one night only and that makes perfect sense.
After all, her sister is married to my best friend.

But neither of us were expecting a connection like this.

KATH
I haven’t been Liam’s biggest fan.
In fact, I’m the one who nicknamed him the Angry Aussie.
Behind his back, of course.
But after a few too many wedding drinks,
and some surprisingly swoony attention from Liam,
I’m more shocked than anyone that I’m
starting to see him in a new light.
And that light is one panty-melting beam.
One night and then back to hating him.
I wish I could believe that statement had one ounce of truth to it.
