THE BOOKS (All my books are also in KU)
She just may be the missing piece that can save my soul.
When Avery Mathis moves to town to fix up the old house her father left her, I never expected she would hire me to be the handyman. After twenty years as a Navy SEAL, my resume didn’t exactly scream “perfect candidate for the job”. But she gave it to me anyway, and I’m quickly learning that she’s more than just my gorgeous boss.
She’s goofy and rambles on about the most random stuff, but I find it oddly charming and can’t seem to get enough. Even though I know I should stay away from her and keep our relationship professional, she seems to be the only thing that calms my troubled soul. I smile more when I’m around her and long for her when I’m not.
She’s quickly becoming my peace, something I wasn’t sure I’d ever find again.
And when trouble comes knocking, regarding her mysterious father, I know that I’ll do anything to protect her.
**Duke's Redemption is a steamy, grumpy-sunshine novel that will give you all the feels and keep you on the edge of your seat.**
Erin: Nope. No. Absolutely not. That’s what I keep telling myself because there’s no way that the hot, tattooed Tanner who is eight years my junior is into me. I’m a mom of three. I have more baggage than an airport and enough junk in my trunk to match. Yet this guy shows up to tell me how amazing he thinks I am. That’s crazy, right? I should walk away. But that’s easier said than done. Did I mention he has a pierced tongue?
Tanner: From the moment I saw her singing karaoke, I knew I had to get to know Erin. But I never figured she’d agree to a no-strings-attached weekend together. The problem is that I don’t want it to be no-strings-attached because the more I get to know her, the more I like her. It doesn’t bother me that she has kids or a crazy ex-husband. All I care about is showing her how wonderful she is. After her awful marriage, she deserves that. And if she can bring down her walls enough to let me in, I vow to show her that every single day.

All the Right Reasons
Most people think of me as the town screw-up. They’re not wrong. I’ve made more mistakes than I care to admit. My biggest mistake of all? Letting go of the most important person in my life. Tracy was my first best friend, my first love— my first everything. After a falling out, I left her and our small town behind, never looking back. But when the big city chewed me up and spit me out, I ran home with my tail tucked between my legs. Now that I’m back, I realize just how stupid I was for letting her go.
Seven years. It’s been seven years since I’ve spoken to Jessie. Seven years since I’ve let myself think about him. To do so would be a fall into a downward spiral that I can’t allow myself to plummet into. Again. I finally have my life on track, running my own business, and taking care of the most important thing— me. That is until he blows back into town like a forbidden gust of wind that takes my breath away and reignites the sparks I’ve tried to smolder for so long.
Distance was what I thought I needed to heal from the heartbreak he caused, but now that he’s back, I can’t think straight. Do I listen to my heart and give him another chance, or do I listen to my gut and run like hell to avoid another heartache?

All the Right Ideas
Luke: After my parents died when I was eighteen, I found that running from my problems was easier than dealing with my feelings— even if it was as drastic as moving across the country. After a while, I realize that the loneliness doesn’t cut it for me anymore, and I end up back in small-town, Tennessee, trying to find my roots. Instead, I find a cute, feisty caterer that I can’t stop thinking about after she covers me in cupcakes. Literally. No matter how hard I try, I can’t stop thinking about Nicole and that scares me because suddenly I realize that I’d do absolutely anything in the world to keep her in mine.
Nicole: I’ve never been one to do what is expected of me. Like conforming to my mother’s beliefs that I should act a certain way, settle down, get married, and start having babies. It’s not that I’m against the idea— it’s just not for me. Or at least I didn’t think it was until a hot, new stranger comes to town and practically sweeps me off of my feet. Suddenly, settling down doesn’t sound so bad. Just when I think this could be my happily ever after, one knock on the door changes absolutely everything.

Sam- When Tyler Wendell asked me to a party at his house, I have no idea why I said yes. His power and charm were usually two things I hated. So, why is he so nice to me?
