I never thought I'd be stranded on a dinosaur planet where death lurks behind every tree.
I actually wouldn’t mind the lethal dinosaurs if they weren’t constantly trying to kill me. The lack of a decent cup of coffee is kind of getting on my nerves, too. And this raw piece of animal hide I'm wearing barely covers my chest.
But the real problem is that some of the cavemen in this tribe are giving me hungry stares, like I’m the first woman they see.
In fairness, I am.
And the only guy protecting me against the dangers thinks I'm his fated mate…
A second chance romance about friendship, new beginnings, and putting the pieces back together.
Two years after my divorce I’m ready to push through the pain. Either I pick up the reins of my life now, or let go forever.
I didn’t expect to cross paths with Rae—in a chat room of all places. She was my first love, who I met in college. Ten years ago, I walked away from us at a time when she needed me. Unfortunately, now I know how that feels.
My first instinct is to run—it would be too easy to fall in love again. Too easy for my heart to break. But now that she’s back in my life, I’m truly grateful for her friendship, even though she’s far away.
Real love has evaded me since Lindsay, my first love and the girl I left behind. It’s been a string of friends with benefits—I give my body but never my heart.
But my second chance has come, and the girl I loved is now a woman with a broken heart. She’s a shadow, and everything in me yearns to coax her back to life.
That’s why I’m inviting her to stay with me in Ireland. I think she could use a break away to let the past go and find some healing. I suspect the demons of her past won’t let her go so easily, but I’ll do what I can to help her find happiness again.
My bad reputation used to be cool… not so much anymore. My life looks like an old country song. The wife left. Took the kid. Something inside of me knows without a doubt that my first love is my only love. I can make this right and put my family back together. My past might threaten to haunt me, but there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to get my wife back. Including changing everything about me.

He has charm, class, money, and experience...
Everything I want in the man I'm going to convince to take my virginity.
Faith Fairchild is my new assistant and half my age, with no concept of just how sexy she is. I would love nothing more than to bend her over my desk and show her who's boss, but my golden rule is don't sleep with virgins. I want no strings sex with a woman who knows what she's doing.
Just because I don't plan to score, doesn't mean I can't play the game... right?
When challenged to a little bump-and-run, can the innocent virgin really play the ultimate player?
FUMBLE is a sexy, lighthearted romance.
Love wasn't supposed to be part of the equation…
Numbers and statistics are my comfort zone—not men. But when two drop-dead gorgeous cowboys save my life, even I can see there's something between us.
Since they're staying at my best friend's ranch to help guard her animals against the shadowy attacker targeting the town, I have plenty of time to get to know the two retired Marines.
Dade Wentworth and Cordell Forrest are good men—the gentle way they handle the horses they breed is proof of that. And the way they fill out their jeans doesn't hurt, either.
But I can't ignore the facts: They're a decade older and more experienced. All they seem to want is a short-term fling. And they can't bear how involved I am in the police investigation of the crimes at the nearby ranches.
They think I'm being reckless, putting myself in danger, sticking my nose in where it doesn't belong.
As for other parts of me? They're clearly happy to have those around… And the more I get to know them, the less I want our time together to end.
The odds are stacked against the three of us becoming anything serious. I can't deny that.
But who knows? After all—every data set has an outlier.

A fake marriage.
Who am I kidding?
