Forever: Jeffery and Letitzia's Story (A River City Novel Book 4)
http://amzn.com/B009MLQUKW


When Letitzia Sorrentino's father dies, she's left with her dad's construction company, but she really wants to be a developer. Family infighting gives her the chance to break out on her own, except she needs more money, and Jeffery Lister has exactly what she wants. Jeffery Lister is an obstetrician with an understaffed, time-consuming practice. He doesn't look at women like other men, until he sees Letitzia.

Letitzia wants a no strings attached relationship. She has her own agenda, and is busy building a new development company. She needs Jeffery Lister's money, but she doesn't want his heart, and she refuses to open her own. A hardhat world of steel beams and dirt has given her a tough, foul-mouthed exterior, but under all of it, she's very much a passionate woman, and it shows in everything she does. To her life is a game, and winning is everything. If you don't play, you automatically lose.

Jeffery Lister is a doctor and it's his passion. He'd love to have a wife and children, but he doesn't have time for them, and he knows it. Letitzia awakens something inside of him and he sees through Letitzia's hard façade. But getting her to admit that the sparks that fly between them is more than physical is going to a lot of patience.

Can two very strong, independent people with busy schedules ever admit to loving each other, especially when one has had her heart broken and is determined never to allow that to happen again?

Don't worry about it being a series, just jump in. The glue for the series is the city.

here's the blurb for my recently released romantic suspense, The Heist:

A heist? A murder? It’s villain’s choice.

A special-order art theft? Tedious, but seamless – until small town museum director Kara Daniels calls in the experts. Furious her favorite trio of priceless impressionist paintings has been stolen from its traveling exhibit on her watch, Kara is determined to save not only the paintings, but her future in the art world. She’ll stop at nothing to entrap the thief.

Ted Springs knows the underbelly of the criminal world a little closer than he might like—but he’s turned it to good advantage, first as a police officer, and now as detective for the Upper Midwest Arts Council. His job? To guarantee the security of the valuable paintings in the Council’s traveling exhibits.

Heat sizzles when Ted and Kara collide—can they work together, before it’s too late?

Here's the blurb from THERE GOES THE GROOM, Book 2 of my Left at the Altar series.

Eight years ago Tony left Olivia at the altar. He was sure she didn't really want to marry him. Now he's back, and they're forced to work together.

Coming home isn't easy for Tony, because his father wanted him to work at a trade instead of going off to college. Their relationship is still unsteady. Even before Tony's return, Olivia began questioning the depth of her love for her fiancé, a man she chose because he was safe and reliable. Yet the last thing she wants is a loveless, faithless marriage like the one her parents suffered through.

When Tony, who never stopped loving her, insists her fiancé is the wrong man for her, Olivia sets out to prove him wrong. But the sexual chemistry between them is still strong, and so are her feelings for him. Even so, how can she break her engagement, hurt her fiancé as she was once hurt? And how can she trust Tony not to abandon her as he did before?

If anyone does the jilting this time, she will.

Thanks!

THE SWORD AND THE PEN
Contemporary Fantasy Romance
http://is.gd/swordandpen

It was time. After penning ten popular sword-and-sorcery novels, Brandon Alexander Davis was ready to move on. Ready to stop hiding in his fictional world. Ready to start living a real life. There was just one problem: as he plotted the noble death of Serilda D'Lar, his fictional creation, complete with mile-long sword, skimpy leather outfit and badass attitude, appeared in his study.

Was she nothing more than a crazy fan, or had Brandon finally cracked?

This warrior woman whom he knew so well, so strong yet vulnerable, was both fantasy and reality. She was an invitation to rediscover all he once knew--that life is an incredible, magical journey and, for love, any man can be a hero.

From my first western historical romance - A Tug At My Heart.

In 1892 only a strong woman can survive alone after her husband’s death. Catherine McHenry is determined to do just that, and amidst the torrential rain and storms, threats of wild animals, and hard work, she finds a way to deliver her baby and survive the long winter. Determined to raise her child and keep the memory of her husband alive, she’s not prepared for the turbulent feelings she has whenever Zed Logan is around.

Zed Logan is the foreman of the Sundown Mine and Ore Company and hopes one day to be the boss. Zed struggles to keep the La Plata mine operating efficiently, keeping miners working, and producing the ore his boss is expecting. He’s also a man of honor who is betrothed to the boss’s daughter, but whenever he thinks about the beautiful grieving widow, something about her tugs at his heart.

Just when Zed feels like he’s on the path to gain everything he planned for, his life spirals out of control and he must face some difficult decisions. But that’s the easy part as life throws several obstacles his way and right into Catherine’s world.
