A second divorce and a new baby wasn’t the vision Alison Hayes had for her future. Now a single mother with two young boys, she wants to focus on her kids and what’s left of her stagnant career.
When Detective Johnny Rhay Bennett breezes into her life with his country-boy accent, she wants to run. She doesn’t need another man in her life, or another reason to make people talk. But when her worst nightmare becomes a reality, Johnny is the only person who can pull Ali out of her despair, forcing her to stay strong and not give up hope of finding her missing child. 

Who falls in love after a one-night stand? Johnny Rhay doesn’t believe it’s possible until it happens to him. With Nashville in his rear-view mirror, he’s determined to convince Alison she loves him too, even if it means moving to the West Coast.

Ali’s not easy, and she’s living on just this side of bitter after her divorce, but Johnny doesn’t care. He’s up for the challenge. At least, he believes he’s up for it until baby Micah is stolen right out from under his nose. Now Johnny has to keep it together and get that sweet little boy home safe before his dreams of having a family vanish too.


Memoirs of Love, Family, the Internet, and Obsession ~ 

Nicky's life had changed incredibly since she met Brett. Handsome, athletic, sexy, and simply amazing, he was the man of her dreams. After a whirlwind romance, adventures, and an incredible wedding, Nicky's life was finally on her own terms. She had overcome the harsh strictness of an oppressive upbringing and was on the road to truly knowing herself. Passion, sex, fun, love, marriage, and family, life was good UNTIL Brett's casual interest in pornography becomes an obsession that affects their life.

The book to read, deals with the addiction of our time. Often hidden, denied, and rarely discussed, porn addiction affects many couples today.

How does a woman deal with this issue? Is it her fault? What will people say? Who can she talk to? What should she do? What would you do?

Portrait of Our Marriage is a fictional memoir that was inspired by an episode from The Oprah Winfrey Show, dreams, research, and very personal information shared by 8 women who were living with and facing this issue. 

A roller coaster ride of emotions. A blatantly realistic read of what goes on behind closed doors.

STRIPPED BARE by Susan Mac Nicol

Matthew Langer hadn't been looking for a relationship. In fact, he'd been avoiding it altogether. But when he meets the sexy escort and master hacker Shane Templar, his personal firewall is breached beyond repair.

One reviewer said ‘Bloody hell that was one sexy raunchy read and I loved every moment between
Shane and Matthew, good and bad, and I have fallen in love with them both.’

THE MISTAKEN by Nancy S Thompson

Tyler Karras wants only two things: to avenge his wife’s death and free his brother from the Russian Mafia. When one provides means for the other, he jumps on the opportunity, pledging the woman who destroyed his family as payment for his brother’s debt. But when Ty mistakenly targets the wrong woman, he’s forced to protect them all from the very enemy’s he’s unleashed, because with the Russian Mafia, even two out of three makes for very long odds.

THE BREVITY OF ROSES by Linda Cassidy Lewis

Jalal Vaziri has looks, money, women—and a habit of running from reality. When he abandons Wall Street and reinvents himself as a poet in a California beach house, he’s convinced he’s only running from a father who hates him, a career mistake, and endless partying. A fresh start is all he needs. Then Meredith, an intriguing older woman enters his life, and he believes all his dreams are coming true. But too soon those dreams dissolve into nightmare. Jalal flees again. He’s nearing the point of no return when the young and feisty Renee blocks his retreat and challenges him to finally face the truth about what he’s trying to outrun.

In The Brevity of Roses, a contemporary tale of love, loss, and redemption, a desperate man discovers his salvation lies in an unlikely source.


Finding The Rainbow Over Land And Sea is the third book in our Land And Sea (with Lane and Shelby) series.

In this picture book, Lane and Shelby will be introduced and they are the main characters. It all started when Lane and Shelby wake up and find out that the rainbow is gone. They search over land and sea and find one color of the rainbow at a time in a different location. In the end, when all seven colors are collected, the rainbow comes back and everyone is happy especially Lane and Shelby.
