Start with a house at the beach. Stir together a young widow who still felt married, an irresponsible cousin, a misconception, an opportunity of a lifetime, a few tears, and a little humor. Add a generous amount of rain, plenty of sunshine, a love of sailing, and three children with very different problems. Put it all together in Mariner’s Cove, then watch the friendship grow, and true love blossom.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS by Peggy Jaeger

Family Practice Doctor Clarissa Rogers’ first impression of Padric Cleary is biased and based on gossip. The handsome, charming veterinarian is considered a serial dater and commitment-phobic by his family and most of the town. Relationship shy, Clarissa refuses to lose her heart to a man who can’t pledge himself to her forever.

Pat Cleary, despite his reputation, is actually looking for "The One." When he does give his heart away, he wants it to be for life. With his parent’s marriage as his guidebook, he wants a woman who will be his equal and soul mate in every way.

Can Pat convince everyone – including Clarissa – she’s the only woman for him?

THE SHERIFF'S SON by Barbara White Daille

Why Is Tanner Jones Back In Town?

Seven-year-old Kevin has been a handful for single mom Sarah Lindstrom, and when the new sheriff walks through her door holding her son by the scruff of his neck for egging his car, she knows she's lost control. But can she control herself—and keep the secret she's kept for so many years?

Tanner Jones has no idea Kevin is his son—he lost the right to that information when he abandoned Sarah soon after graduation. Just because he's back in town doesn't mean he can waltz into her life—and Kevin's—to pick up where they left off. But Sarah can't deny the feelings she still harbors for Tanner, and can't deny how her son is benefiting from his attentions.

When Tanner finds out the truth, what is he going to do?

HUNTER'S POINT, the latest of the Nevada Highlander series:
~
"This is my bedroom for a while. Hunter’s Point. So point your dick here and hunt for me."

Alex has raised his flag of independence right there on the grounds of Castle Drummond. And castle laird Rory, arse-over-bollocks in love, struggles to understand the outlook of a mate who wants no prize he can offer—nothing but his own large, gruff, perpetually aroused self.

At the same time Scotland is on the verge of passing a new same-sex marriage law, two headstrong men have their own problems to solve: a case of murder, and a coming to terms with a possible long-term commitment to each other.

Rory and Alex follow clues from the lighthouse on Montrose Promontory to one of Scotland’s most prestigious prep schools … while a killer, not content with one victim, waits for them in a place none would suspect.

And even if they can solve a case of brutal murder, Rory and Alex must ask themselves whether they can solve their own personal mystery, one which threatens to undo them altogether.

Cold Water Bridegroom by B. Brumley

Having grown up in San Francisco, Calder Brumen is drawn to the ocean, and he's spent his life trying to capture the beauty of the Pacific on canvas. Over time, he has become obsessed with painting the image of a dark haired mermaid named Gaire, and Calder struggles to explain his devotion to these portraits to his best friend. When Calder finds sandy footprints leading to the edge of his bed, he suspects that the haunting siren is real.

Pursuing the truth, Calder is dragged into a murderous, underwater plot that could destroy them all. And he must choose – is the possibility of a lifetime with Gaire worth risking death for himself and everyone he loves?

6 DAYS OF YOU by Sophia Ryan

Lily’s uber-conservative boyfriend Michael finally agrees to let her visit over fall break, but only if she agrees to his no-sex rule. Unfortunately, he’s ditched her for a trip to Vail, a blizzard has hit, and she’s forced to stay the week with his grumpy, gay, totally yummy roommate. Then the heat in the building shuts down, and she discovers two things—the sexy stud keeps her hotter than any furnace, and he’s definitely not gay. No-sex rule? How about no rules?

After a bad break-up with his girlfriend, Daryl’s looking forward to a quiet week without his annoying roommate, Michael. His plans go awry when a sexy-as-sin blonde, suitcase in hand, barges in claiming to be Mike’s girlfriend. He doesn’t have the heart to tell her Mike’s away with two gorgeous redheads, and with snow piling up he can’t throw her out. He’d never move in on his roommate’s girl, but as the feisty bombshell settles in, the tiny dorm room grows smaller and certain parts of his body grow bigger.

It’s going to be a hell of a long and sexy six days.


“Although the events are focused on the span of six days, the author packs in plenty of surprises for the reader, and the chemistry between the two characters is well developed with a nice bit of heat added.” – 4 STARS, THE ROMANCE REVIEWS

If You Like Your Cozies With a Side of Attitude
You'll Love the Kadence MacBride Mysteries

DEATH OF AN ISLAND TART by Janice Croom
Following a breakup of 268 days, 12 hours and 23 minutes, Kadence MacBride has messed up and knows it, so she swallows her pride and flies to the Caribbean to reconcile with her boyfriend Terrence.

Unfortunately for her, Terrence has moved on and is about to get married. Unfortunately for him, the wedding is called because of death. Someone has strangled his bride to be.

The police have only one suspect: Terrence. Knowing that prisoners on the island are more likely to see the inside of a coffin than a courtroom, Kadence has to help.

They conduct their investigation in the midst of what the tourist bureau deems civil unrest, but plain folks call riots. With no phone, no lights and no motor car, they're more stranded than Gilligan. On the run, stripped of their tourist status, the real murderer is closing in. Looks like the only way Kadence and Terrence will ever get off the island will be in a pine box.

Death of an Island Tart Available on Amazon
