MARRIAGE MADE ME DO IT ~ BARGAIN $0.99!

An irreverent thriller about one housewife’s descent into madness.

SO ADDICTIVE YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN!

It’s time to break the rules!

My name is Roxy Davenport and I’m part of a dying breed: I’m the perfect housewife.

My whole life, I’ve tried to follow the rules of previous, “wiser” generations. High school sweethearts must marry (check!), the wife must stay home to look after the children (check!), all married couples must procreate and raise 3.2 children (demerit – we only managed one – oops!).

But it turns out all the while, my husband has been playing by his own rules…and playing around.

So screw him! I’ve chucked the handbook out the window. He has no idea what’s coming for him. And my perfect neighborhood will never be the same again.

NO EASY WAY OUT ~ BARGAIN $0.99

A ROMANTIC CLASSIC! First time available for Kindle. Full-length novel!

Engineering robots, and all non-living creatures, was easy for Virginia – not so much with people. So when her best friend dragged her to the company Halloween party, Virginia went kicking and screaming…well as much as her Playboy bunny costume allowed for any movement.

But with her mask in place and her normal reserve as tiny as her costume, Dr. Farrell suddenly let loose. Wild and wanton, she fell into the muscular arms of the costumed and masked Bandit. His virile charms and passionate kisses penetrated her reserve. But at the stroke of midnight, when the masks were to come off, Virginia fled, leaving her bunny tail in the palm of the handsome Bandit’s hand.

Dr. Alex Braddock was determined to find the curvy ass that fit the tail. He was stunned when it appeared that his new boss, Dr. Farrell was his sexy rabbit.

But was it the prim, professional Virginia? She resembled oatmeal!

Or her wanton twin sister? She got turned on by the navel in an orange!

Which woman was the aggressor? Which woman ignited burning desire? Which woman – became the all-consuming question that needed an answer.

This romantic comedy is a laugh-a-minute, with a team of fairy godmothers that would make any Cinderella blush and a surprise twist in the middle that makes for no easy way out!

Book Four in the USA Today Bestselling Philadelphia Patriots Series of sports romances

Taylor Page has never wanted anything but a career in major league baseball. Through talent and guts, she’s finally landed a position as Assistant General Manager of the Philadelphia Patriots. The only problem is that most men in baseball still don’t take a woman exec seriously, especially a thirty-year old blonde with no on-field experience. She needs to do something big to convince her bosses she has what it takes to run a team.

Veteran Pittsburgh outfielder Ryan Locke’s career is in jeopardy when a suddenly unreliable throwing arm comes on top of rehab from a major injury. A single parent with a troubled daughter and an alcoholic mother to provide for, retirement is out of the question. Ryan’s best hope is for a trade to an American League team as a designated hitter, allowing him several more years of play.

When Taylor needs a replacement for an injured first baseman, she comes up with an innovative but risky idea: convince her boss to make a trade for Ryan Locke, and then convince the still talented slugger to play first base for the Patriots. With Ryan dead-set against that plan and both their careers on the line, neither Taylor nor Ryan can afford the explosive physical attraction between them. But despite Taylor’s best efforts to resist Ryan’s campaign of seduction, she’s not sure she’s got the willpower to keep from playing along.
