Animal Attraction Series

Three Day Fiancee

Entangled Lovestruck

IBSN: 978-1640635074

"Some things can't be faked..."

Helicopter pilot Taylor Blankenship’s time schedule is maxed out. Between his job, his one hundred and fifty-pound slobbering mess of a dog, and his matchmaking grandmother, he has no time for anyone or anything-especially a woman. If only there were a way to get Grams to back down.

The job of New York City dog walker suits Caitlin Ramos perfectly while she preps for her CPA exam—steady, scheduled, and requiring very little human interaction; a huge seller since she’s still on the mend from a toxic relationship. Men suck. Especially her bossy hot client with the Saint Bernard that thinks it’s a lap dog. No way will she go for his plan to pretend they’re engaged to get his grandmother off his case. Down, boy.

Offered a bargain she can’t refuse, Caitlin finds herself playing the part of fiancée to Taylor. Fortunately, it’s only for three days. All she has to do is fake a relationship with Mr. Bossy Pants in front of his entire family, survive a fierce game of truth or dare with an unscrupulous pair of octogenarians, endure a one-on-one round of Twister with Taylor, and not lose her heart to a guy who turns out to be a lot more than she’d bargained for.

Dear Jane

Playing matchmaker to the boss's daughter is harder than he expected...

Jane Dixon is a dating disaster. Flammable tablecloths and broken arms are just a typical evening for her unlucky companions. No wonder Jane never gets past a first date. But luckily her co-worker and new bff says he’s got loads of friends who’d date her more than once. If only she could stop thinking about how much fun he was to hang out with. And she’d never dropped a bucket of ice on his junk. Win.

All attorney Eric Blackwell has to do to make junior partner is not screw anything up for six weeks, which seems like a slam dunk until he finds himself matchmaker to the office “One Date Wonder” aka the boss’s daughter. It’s hard to stay focused when setting up the hottest girl he’s ever met with everyone but himself. Maybe he could just set her up with all the wrong men, and keep his hands off his new friend… Yeah. His promotion is toast.

Delightful... What a wonderful start to a new series.

Anderson Brothers Series

Sleeping with the Boss

Seducing the enemy has never been so tempting...

For the last five years, bookish Claire Maddox has been living for the dying. Now that her stint as caretaker is over, she’s off to see the world. She needs quick cash first, so a temp job at Anderson Auctions seems perfect, especially with the unexpected benefits, including the hottest man she’s ever laid eyes—or hands—on.

Former marine William Anderson has been burned one time too many. His military training makes him the perfect man to flush out the spy undercutting his family business, but no amount training can prepare him for the kind of undercover work he’ll have to do when the sexy new temp is implicated. Desire lands them in bed… but duty may cost him his heart.

Will Anderson can be my boss any day. Marissa Clarke is a master at mixing sexy and mystery.

Neighbors with Benefits

Love thy sexy jerk of a neighbor...

CEO Michael Anderson might be something of a "control Freak." Still, he's not quite sure why his therapist thinks dogsitting will fix anything--especially since he and the canine share a ind of mutual loathing. And to make matters worse, a house sitter moves in next door disrupting his peace--and his dates--with the worst possible music at the worst possible time... every time.

Free-spirited artist Mia Argarapolis has settled into the perfet gig--housesitting in NYC's Upper West Side while working as an art therapist. Too bad she's stuck living next door to a bossy control freak with a penchant for calling building security when she blasts music to drown out the noises coming though his bedroom wall.

Post apocalyptic dinner rolls that nearly take her kitchen with them, a douchebag ex, and a Shih Tzu with the personality of Godzilla attack Mia in one day, and her unlikely neighbor comes to the rescue. Like it was her fault. And now, somehow, they find themselves engaged? Both agree, this neighborly feud just got taken to a whole new level.

Sexy, smart, fun! A fabulous new voice in contemporary romance!

Chance of a Lifetime

Sometimes the biggest risk is playing it safe...

Gen Richards is tired of living down to her family’s expectation of the helpless blind girl. Resurrecting her high-school bucket list that begins with “kiss a total stranger” seems just the thing until she finds herself in a panty-melting lip lock with her big brother’s best friend.

Chance Anderson thrives on adrenaline, but Genny’s the one risk he’s not willing to take. His recklessness a decade ago landed her in the hospital and ejected him from her life. He’s bad for her and everyone knows it—especially her big brother.

Chance reluctantly helps Gen complete her bucket list in order to keep her out of trouble. Running through a freezing fountain, playing Spin the Bottle while fending off a mad horde of stinging insects, and skinny dipping with homicidal attack swans don’t hold a candle to the real danger: falling for the one person he can never have.

From the impressive and smart but also blind heroine, to the man who'd always believed in her abilities, to the circumstances that brought back together to rediscover the friendship and feelings were still there, I flat out loved this book.

The Underveil Series

Love Me to Death

What you want most just might kill you...

Medical research scientist Elena Arcos has always lived her life under the radar. When she is shot in a convenience store robbery, Elena finds herself rocketed into supernatural insanity courtesy of a sexy immortal law enforcer. He’s convinced she’s some kind of freaky half-vampire thing and that her deceased dad was the real deal: a blood sucking monster. Yeah, right.

Nikolai Itzov never anticipated battling the urge to kiss the offspring of his father’s murderer. As a Slayer, an elite law enforcer descended from Azrael himself, his orders from the Underveil General are clear: Kill her or die.

Nikolai and Elena find themselves in a life and death battle to stop a plot designed to lift the Underveil and enslave humans. With her analytical mind and his centuries of training, they might be able to foil the plot with their lives and maybe their hearts intact. But in order to succeed, he must help her become the very thing he hates the most: an Undead.

A fascinating new world! Enter with caution.You'll never want to leave!
- Kerrelyn Sparks, New York Times bestselling author
Love Me to Death has, in my opinion, one of the sexiest vampire transformations I've ever read. ...You'll really enjoy this if you love a book that is both heavy on romance and has a slightly different take on vamps and shifters.
- Amy, Vampire Book Club
A refreshing and well-timed paranormal romance that has humor and darkness and sexy, sexy times in near perfect balance.
