BENDING HER TO THE BEAR’S WILL
The human thinks I’m stalking her. Maybe I am.
But I’m not the only one.
There’s something evil in these woods and it preys on single women.

Just until the storm passes. Until her research is finished.
Then I’ll let her go.
I swear.

Meet Nick–an ice cream peddling undercover-cop, Pete–a war correspondent trying to fulfill his Aunt’s last wishes, Crown Prince Eric who’s in a bind, and the feisty gals who grab their attention and capture their hearts. Three complete Contemporary Romance Novels in one Boxed Set.

THE ICE CREAM MAN: Divorcee Jenny Lake suspects the new ice cream man, Nick Barnett, is selling more than bompops off his truck. Nick suspects Jenny is more than the frazzled mom she portrays, as all evidence makes her suspect number one in his check-kiting case. Nick also knows a cop should never fall in love with his suspect.

ISN’T IT ROMANTIC: Childhood friends, Pete Cooper and Brooke Ferguson spent their evenings watching TV with Pete’s Aunt Mamie. Now Pete is a famous cable news anchor who earned his stripes in war zones, and Brooke watches Pete on the same old TV in the same small town. Then Aunt Mamie passes away, and Pete and Brooke must set out on a road trip to fulfill Mamie’s last wishes.

A PRINCE OF A GUY: When New Yorker Casey Phillips visits the tiny country of Moritania to see where her ancestors came from, she’s mistaken for a princess, and Crown Prince Eric von Lieberhaven insists that Casey—a dead ringer for the missing royal—step into the princess’s shoes until she can be freed.

BethWhen three best friends come together for their sorority sister’s tony wedding on New Year’s Eve, they make a vow at the stroke of midnight to get married within one year. As the three women embark on their search to find their soul mates, they navigate the full-contact sport known as being a SSBFDLA (successful, single, black, female dating in L.A.) and negotiate the shark-infested waters of making a name for themselves in Hollywood.

Can Trista, the hyper-driven celebrity agent, find the time to schedule a meaningful romance? Will Amaya, the sexy starlet, convince the married hip hop–label exec she has been seeing to leave his wife and slip a ring on her finger or will the NBA star steal her heart in the final seconds? After undergoing a complete makeover, will Vivian, the jaded gossip columnist, win back the father of her child?

Set against the seductive backdrop of money, power, and sex, The Vow follows these women as they discover that their desire to find a husband isn’t as important as finding themselves.

A fierce bounty hunter. An outlaw on the run. A love that transcends it all.
After three years on the run, the notorious bounty hunter Tyler Calhoun catches up with the elusive lady outlaw, Nicky Malloy. The intensity of their dislike for each other is only matched by the burgeoning passion they can’t control.
A loner by nature, a cold hard hunter by choice, Tyler fights his feelings for his prisoner the only way he knows how — by ignoring them. He’s not prepared for the depth of his feelings, or how hard it will be to hold her prisoner–so close and so far away. Pursued and hunted themselves, Nicky and Tyler are forced to turn to each other for aid, trust, and comfort as their journey progresses to an inevitable end.
Caught in a murky world of lies, they hold on to each other as they travel to Wyoming to confront the man that brought them together. Tyler has to decide if his love for Nicky is worth more than the bounty he was sent to find.

SPECIAL AGENT SOPHIA ~ NEW RELEASE

Sophia’s mane of silver hair gives her the look of a mystical warrior, a female not of this world. Some colleagues defend her, others are jealous, most fear her, yet everyone respects her abilities. An ace sharpshooter, she’s called on for the most difficult cases. Her uncanny ability to remain cool under duress makes her the perfect person to rescue the twins of the frantic governor whose rejected husband intends to make her suffer. The fact that they are whisked to Greece also works in her favor since she’s spent most of her summers in Rhodes visiting family and can show up there without anyone becoming suspicious. Problems begin when a cocky hero hits on her in the marketplace. Why her?

Sam Reagan, owner, and CEO of The Reagan Group promises his sister he’ll follow the FBI agent to the Greek island to ensure his niece and nephew are safely returned to her arms. Understanding his mission has to be covert because his former brother-in-law will recognize him, he uses an alias and follows the gorgeous agent who’s on the case. It’s understood he stays in the background, gives assistance if needed… until he sees her. Then all bets are off. There’s no way he’ll leave her to deal with dangerous traffickers after she saves a teenager hooker and whisks the poor girl away right under their noses.

Digging deeper, working together, they discover the consortium of criminals is more organized than they first believed. And the man running the operation is the same low-life loser who fathered the missing twins.
