THE ULTIMATE TREASURE

Alexa Mills gets the trip of a lifetime when she’s chosen to go on a humanitarian trip to the Philippines to help rebuild one of the villages that were devastated years ago by natural disasters. She’s more than excited until she steps on the jet and discovers her benefactor is none other than Lance Storm, the man she’d had a one-night-stand with at her sister’s wedding to Ashton Storm.

They are together in a foreign country for a month and she can’t fight her attraction to him though she knows marriage can end devastatingly badly. After all, the only example she’s ever had is the abusive father who raised her and the weak mother who allowed it.

When they return home and Lance asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend for the holidays so his family will lay off trying to get him married, she can’t resist the temptation. She doesn’t want to spend another holiday alone.

But will Lexie forget that it’s all pretend as she is welcomed with open arms into the Anderson and Storm clan? Or will she manage to hold onto her convictions and walk away when the fantasy of being a part of a family and falling in love with a man is supposed to be over?

NEW RELEASE!

Government secrets are being sold and the newly-sworn-in President of the United States already feels out of options. Without knowing the full scope of the scandal, the president decides to turn to the one person he knows he can trust—former FBI Agent, Elizabeth James. Her deep distrust of the system is rooted in her unfair discharge from service. Now she sees a chance to restore her reputation and send a message to those that would use their power to destroy others’ lives.
Elizabeth is ordered to do whatever it takes to end this criminal organization, but she’s also told that this is completely off the books. Nothing can point back to the president until the entire network is dismantled. Elizabeth can only rely on her team comprised of a computer whiz and a former Air Force Pararescueman to get to the bottom of the leaks. Every decision could cost them their freedom . . . or their lives.
What Elizabeth didn’t count on was her heart becoming as entangled as the lies she tells to uncover the truth. With her heart now in the game, Elizabeth works on guarding those she loves as she dives headfirst into danger. Can Elizabeth follow the leads and take out the leaders of the secret group before the whole world is thrown into chaos?

Some lucky women meet the man of their dreams and live happily ever after. Some lucky women focus on a career and make their own happily ever after. And then some women wake up after fifteen years of marriage and discover that their luck just ran out … right into the arms of another woman.

Jana Embers isn’t one to sit back, though. The first thing Jana realizes she needs to do is empty the joint bank account, then she’s thinking she might take a tire iron to her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s truck. After that, she’s not sure what she’ll do … Maybe she’ll adopt a cat.

Very quickly, Jana decides she doesn’t need a man. A perfectly sized and shaped device and writing about the perfect hero will more than suffice. Determined to share her philosophy, she pens You Don’t Need a Man, encouraging women everywhere to go out and experience life instead of waiting for a man to complete them.

Three years later, Jana has a New York Times bestseller and a contract for a movie adaptation, but she also has a shoulder injury, which has put a crimp in her new carefree lifestyle. Worse yet, she can’t write. Her only hope is Dr. Adrian Kijek, a renowned physical therapist who hates her simply because she wrote a book about not needing a man, or so she thinks …

WARNING: Although there are many adult situations in this novel, if say … something crazy happened and a famous producer adapted this contemporary women’s fiction into a movie, it would have a PG-13 rating. There are no erotic scenes, no graphic violence, and while there are a few allowed-on-TV curse words, there aren’t a plethora of gratuitous foul words. Oh, and if you were looking for a cliffhanger, you won’t find that here either. Some Lucky Woman is a stand-alone novel that includes all three parts of Jana’s story. Please proceed at your own risk.
