From KISSING KATIE (His Girl Next Door #1) a 2015 Rone Award finalist:

Snippet from MORE THAN WORDS, Book #2 in the Madison Falls Series by Susan Behon

Ben had essentially trapped her between the frigid air and the heat from his body. Taking his time to gather the boxes, he enjoyed the feel of her back barely grazing his front. Pulling away, he put the cereal next to the milk. “Sorry if I bumped you.” Ben smirked.
He wasn’t sorry.

"The feud began when your mother left her father at the altar." "Mom?" Marshall asked in disbelief.
Aunt Evelyn nodded. "Embarrassed the whole Dalton Clan in front of the town."
"How? Why?" Marshall asked, swiveling in his chair as his aunt stood and walked to the sink.
