No more Miss Nice Girl –

Noah Drake walked out of her life without a word – just divorce papers.

Marlayna O’Brian wanted answers and he was the only man who could provide them.

But there he was engaged to another woman – and she was invited to the party!

She gave him fair warning: “Seduction is the plan for today. Keep on your toes, Mr. Drake. You never know when or where I’m going to strike!

Marlayna found it so very easy to be deliciously bad! Especially when an American castle provided so many erotic nooks and crannies.

Inside is one very hot, explicit romantic comedy!

Heartache. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Redemption… It’s time to head back to Magdalena, New York, and spend a little time with the people we love to love and even a few we love to hate.

He’s lost his fortune… She’s nursing a broken heart…When fate steps in, will love prevail?

Pete Finnegan had it all—money, power, status, a future wife, until he lost it all in one huge financial “gamble.” Now he’s back in his hometown of Magdalena, trying to figure out what to do with his life. When Nate Desantro offers him a job fixing up a cabin one hundred miles away, he jumps at the opportunity. Peace and solitude in the woods away from busybodies and do-gooders, is exactly what he needs to contemplate his future.

But Pete doesn’t expect to find a beautiful woman staying at the cabin.

Elissa Cerdi has escaped to the Blacksworth cabin to heal her broken heart. As Gloria Blacksworth’s former caregiver, she’s agreed to honor the dead woman’s last request by mailing letters to select residents of Magdalena. When Elissa meets Pete, she doesn’t know he has ties to Magdalena, and she certainly doesn’t know the final letter she plans to mail is about his father.

Pete and Elissa are both in need of healing and maybe that’s why they agree to shut down the outside world and pretend nothing exists but what’s inside the cabin. Could that also be why they’re able to open up to one another, talk about disappointments, hurts, betrayals, and hopes?

Because it’s all pretend?

Is that why passion consumes them, burns them with a need they’ve never felt before?

Is it so powerful because it isn’t real?

Except it is.

When Pete uncovers the truth about Elissa’s part in Gloria Blacksworth’s cruel scheme for vengeance, he feels betrayed and questions everything that happened in the cabin. As weeks pass and the couple forge separate lives, Pete must decide if he can open his heart once again to forgiveness and love.

Note: Gloria Blacksworth’s letters aren’t the only ones floating around Magdalena. When Nate and Christine Desantro visit the cabin, they discover six letters written by Charles Blacksworth that could change lives forever. Now they must decide what to do with them. Stay tuned!

Revised and Edited Third Edition

He trusts his gut, she trusts her numbers, and neither trusts the other, as a billionaire’s mission to bring hockey to Seattle clashes with his passion for the woman who holds his heart.

Ethan Parker, a billionaire determined to bring professional hockey to Seattle, will stop at nothing to realize his dream. After putting down a hefty deposit on another city’s team, the sale is stalled as the parties involved evaluate their options. In the meantime, Ethan’s investors insist he go undercover during the playoffs to get the inside scoop.

Lauren Schneider, assistant director of player personnel, gets no respect from the team’s testosterone-loaded staff. When Ethan bursts onto the scene, full of charm and genuinely interested in her opinions, she shares the team’s weaknesses and discovers a weakness of her own—for Ethan. But when his true identity is revealed, and he starts cleaning house based on her input, his betrayal cuts deeply on both a professional and personal level. Bound by an employment contract, Lauren reluctantly moves to Seattle to work for the newly christened Seattle Sockeyes and her sexy, infuriating boss.

Lauren and Ethan must come to terms with their passions—for the team, for hockey, and for each other. Will their situation build a frozen wall between them, or will their love burn hot enough to melt the ice shielding their hearts?

Crouch End Confidential, the agency started by housewife and mother, Cathy O’Farrell, with ex-cleaner, Pimple, is failing badly. Hardly surprising when Cathy’s too soft-hearted to charge their only clients, little old ladies seeking lost pets and a school kid searching for his stolen bike. A new case involving a teenager in possession of an unexplained Glock pistol promises to change all that. Quickly Cathy’s deep in waters over her head, forced with hilarious results to pose as a mathematics tutor, a subject of which she’s truly clueless. There’s also the tricky situation of best friend and new mother Rosa hiring her to investigate her fiancé, Alec, plus the mysterious sabotage of Cathy’s friends’ cycle shop and a gang of yobbos dealing drugs at her children’s primary school. Worst of all, an ill-fated trip to rural Norfolk has Cathy’s husband, Declan, intent on buying a post office and transplanting the family to safer climes, threatening to tear Cathy permanently from her beloved North London home. Pretty soon Cathy’s risking her friendships, her marriage and even her life untangling all these messes. But that’s what you get for meddling in murder…

Who would have guessed a lie could bring them together?

LUKE GALLOWAY doesn’t lie. Well, not normally. And never about anything as serious as death. But, somehow Luke’s friend and business partner, Sam Paris, convinces Luke he needs to do just that. Sam believes the only way his daughter will come back to see him is if he were dying. And so the lies begin . . .

RUSTY PARIS has been alone most of her life. Her parents were divorced when she was very young. She was pushed off to boarding schools, while her mother made a hobby of marrying rich men. She doesn’t remember much about her father, only that he never made an attempt to be a part of her life for the past twenty-some years. But all that is about to change. When she gets word he is dying, she runs home to be by his side, which puts her right in the path of that scoundrel Luke Galloway.

Luke has no room in his life for rich heiresses. Been there. Done that. From the first time Luke and Rusty meet, they clash. She considers him nothing more than a lowly ranch hand who enjoys riling her temper. He finds her arrogant and prissy. But that doesn’t mean he can fight his attraction to her, nor hers to him. And when they find out they’ve both been duped by Rusty’s father the sparks really start to fly.

This was a great twist on the Cinderella story. Loved the theme park storyline. The extra characters were interesting. Lots of detail on the characters and lots of issues with Janie but not as many with Dylan. I wasn’t happy with the plot. It happened then it was over as fast as it started. I recommend this book if your looking for a quick read.

I received an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
