Lily Scott doesn’t know her best friend’s estranged brother. He’s always been a mystery to her. But when her best friend disappears, she has no choice but to call Archer for help.
Archer can barely trust his instincts let alone his desire for the beautiful, curvy woman he finds in his brother’s bed. She assures him they’re just friends, but he doesn’t know how anyone could resist her. Archer definitely isn’t strong enough.
The rest of his team shows up to help search for Archer’s brother and everyone becomes a suspect, including Lily. Trust is questioned and broken. And freedom is guaranteed to no one.
My friends told me to give him a chance, but I knew he’d take one look at my curvy body and come up with a reason not to go out again. So, I gave him an out.
He didn’t take it.
The man was relentless. He liked my curves, and he wanted more than just phone calls. He wanted me.
How could I say no to that?
It was supposed to be an anonymous fling with a stranger. Yeah, I knew sneaking away with him at a party a friend was throwing was risky, but he was impossible to resist. Too bad he was also my new boss.
Working side-by-side with Drew was definitely not a harship. We clicked, and the close quarters and long hours made resisting him impossible. We thought we were being sneaky, until his mother caught us getting a little too close.
She wanted him with his ex, and I didn’t measure up. I didn’t care. Not really. Not until his perfect ex walked in, and he forgot I existed.
But he was serious about turning down a date with someone else because we had plans. He picked me up, talked to my friends, and checked in on me all night. Like a date. And that good night kiss?
There was nothing friendly about that.
He kissed like a man who knew exactly what he wanted. And me? I couldn’t deny I wanted the same thing. I just hoped I wasn’t going to get hurt letting him in.
The last thing I needed was an stubborn, irritating, alpha male who thought hitting on his assistant in front of me would impress me. Ethan Norwood was not my kind of guy. He had bad news written all over him from the dangerous glint in his eyes to the tattoos that cover his body to the power he holds as the biggest sponsor for the town Easter egg hunt.
Staying away from him should be easy. I didn’t have time, and I definitely didn’t need the jerk in my life. Too bad I can’t seem to be able to say no to him. If working together wasn’t bad enough, him showing up at my house sealed the deal. But I was the one who let him in, and let him meet my kids, and let him kiss me and touch me and make me forget all about everything else I was supposed to be doing. Because he was much more fun.
I know that’s harsh, but all the fake, happy families and people letting the pressure of a perfect holiday get to them really got to me. The one thing making it easier is Mayor Wyatt Ramsey.
We’re friends, and he decided to make it his mission to change my mind about his favorite holiday. I am less than confident in his skills, but his excitement is more than a little contagious.
Just like his kisses. And his touches. And the sexy looks that make me hot. Falling for Christmas is easy. Falling for Wyatt is, too. But not everything is so easy.
Like finding out I’m pregnant…
Former SEAL, Jack Farrell has no interest in getting close to anyone. He has his team and doesn’t need anyone else. Definitely not a stunning, curvy woman with aa feisty side and strength for days.
Jack’s team has been working on taking down the dangerous men Pilar’s ex works for, but they aren’t willing to let it happen without a few casualties. They send her ex to deal with it, but taking her brother isn’t enough. He won’t return home unless Pilar is with him.
The search for Pilar’s brother forces Jack and Pilar closer together when Jack is tasked with keeping her safe. But finding her brother means putting Pilar in danger. It means showing their hand to the man who could take everything away from him.
And it means the one thing Pilar needs from Jack is something he can’t give her. The truth.
Ashleigh Edwards never forgot her first love. Once upon a time, she thought Daniel would be hers forever, but he had other plans. Plans that didn’t include her. She moved on and built a life without Daniel, but when she discovers her husband’s secrets, the only person who can keep her safe is the one man who chose his duty over her the last time they saw each other.
Dunn can’t turn Ashleigh away, but he can’t trust her either. When someone else from his past returns, he doesn’t know how to keep Ashleigh safe and take down the man who betrayed him.
The moment Slade realized he’d been drugged, he fought it. He tried to take in everything, but the drugs were strong, and he went down, staring into the eyes of the curvy woman who collapsed first. He wanted to tell her everything would be okay, but even if he could speak, he couldn’t get the words out. He knew there was no guarantee of that.
When the woman from the bank shows up for an interview, Slade pushes the team to hire her. Kyra is smart and beautiful and perfect for the job. She’s also off-limits.
But when another bank is hit, the lines between Slade and Kyra are blurred. They lean on each other, and everything they thought they knew gets flipped upside down.
My little sister’s best friend has always been off-limits.
It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve imagined what it would be like to be with her, she doesn’t want me. She wants a clean-cut guy with a boring job who’ll sit at home and answer her every beck and call.
I know who I am, and I’m not going to change.
Sure, I’d do anything she asked, but I can’t change me. Not that she’s ever asked. She knows I’m a lost cause. Life as a surf instructor might not be stable, but it’s fun and I’m good at it.
These days I think it’s the only thing I’m good at. Because I sure as hell suck at saying no to her lately.
It’s been a long time since I had the space to dream.
Seeing my dreams come true again is a pretty great deal. Not that I have big dreams, but being out from under the crushing debt that ripped my first marriage apart means I’m ready to start living again.
Not everyone sees the Big Island as their dream.
Ginny wants to be anywhere but here. It makes no sense to me why anyone would want to run from paradise, but she has something else in mind. Something that doesn’t include a job that has her landlocked on her father’s coffee plantation.
We aren’t friends, but we aren’t enemies. There are so many stops in between. Which one we’re at definitely depends on the day.
My curvy, sexy new boss has a chip on her shoulder the size of The Big Island.
And it’s all because of me. Although I have no idea why. She couldn’t be pissed because I checked her out the first time we met. She’s hot, and I like to look. But I won’t touch. She is my boss.
I spend my days trying to convince her she won’t regret hiring me, and my nights trying to forget my past.
And I’m failing at both. Kiana threatens to fire me before our first wedding. But I’m not leaving Hawaii. I lived through hell, and have the flashbacks to prove it. I’m staying put. No matter what she throws at me.
Even if it’s my worst nightmare come to life.
So what if my ex thinks I’m fat? He doesn’t know what he’s missing. But I joined a gym and I’m going to show him.
First step, ignore the sexy and intense owner of my new gym. He intrigues and intimidates me at the same time. The way he watches me makes me wonder if he’s trying to find a way to kick me out. I can’t handle another guy rejecting me because of my curves. Then he throws out other clients for making me feel like crap.
And kisses me.
He’s not like any guy I’ve ever met. He’s strong and silent and a whole lot of alpha. Maybe a little too much for me. He gives me confidence and defends me and makes me believe I can do anything.
I’ve never felt this way. That’s good though, right?
Andie Young has always been good at hiding who she really is. Her emotions and truths have stayed buried beneath the sexy clothes, makeup, and endless amber waves that are her signature look. She had to do something to get attention. Between her three brothers and five cousins, she grew up feeling like the invisible one. So she changed that.
He’s loved her forever…
Cody Powell has been attracted to Andie since the summer she turned seventeen. Off limits back then, and involved with one guy or another since, Cody has kept his adoration secret from her. He spent fifteen years avoiding Andie, and stammering like a fool when he was face to face with her.
Cody spends weeks fixing up her house and falling harder for her with each passing day. He knows she’d never be interested in a country boy like him, but seeing her dating other guys has finally taken its toll. Cody doesn’t think he can handle it any longer.
They both want someone to share their lives with…
Is she strong enough to take a chance with Cody? Or will he finish her house and leave before she gets the chance to tell him how she feels?
It’s been years since I lost my wife, and I’m ready. To move on, to start over, to see my dreams come true. Our dreams. The brewery we always planned to start is finally up and running, and I’m ready for someone to share it with.
Scarlett caught my eye the day we met, but the timing was off. We were both working too many hours, and even though we had chemistry, it wasn’t enough to pull us away from survival mode we were both in.
Now, things are different. We have time, and the Hawaiian nights aren’t the only things making me sweat. The curvy, sexy, redhead who tears me up day and night is making it hard to imagine a life without her in it.
As long as I don’t screw it up.
I wasn’t the same man she used to know.
Briella called me out. Womanizer, allergic to commitment, and happily single. She didn’t realize the teenager she knew had changed. She still saw me as the guy who ditched her sister at a school dance more than a decade earlier. I wasn’t that guy anymore, but I didn’t need her to see me as more. No one else did, so why should she.
She was a sweet, curvy, sexy single mom that deserved better than me.
She gave so much of herself to everyone else, I wondered how she had any left at the end of the day. Mother, business owner, volunteer…but all I saw was the woman she was beneath all the masks she wore. Kind, strong, passionate, and the most amazing woman I’d ever known.
She thought I was the devil. Maybe I was. But she was definitely an angel. One I didn’t deserve. One I couldn’t resist.
Cat Thomas is the only virgin left in River Pointe, New York. Or at least she feels that way. A moment of self doubt as a teenager made her commit to waiting until marriage before she had sex, but now she wonders if it was the worst decision she’s ever made. All these years later, being a virgin is a much bigger deal, and finding ‘The One’ is even harder.
Ryder Hawkins is ready to escape his former life and looking for a quiet place to raise his seven year old daughter. He moves to River Pointe hoping to give his daughter the life he always wanted for her, stability, and a loving parent.
He only hopes he is enough for her.
When Cat meets Ryder, she thinks he’s just like every other man out there and doesn’t give him the time of day. But Ryder can see Cat is different, and maybe she’s the missing piece of his life that could make him feel whole again. But can he capture her attention? And will Cat give up her commitment, or will she make Ryder wait for it?
It’s not much, is it?
Jenny is floundering. She is a happy person by nature, but she feels like her four years of college were a waste every time she goes into work as a waitress, the same job she held before going off to college. Add to that her boyfriend is always so busy with school, and his friends, that she rarely sees him.
And she’s not even sure she cares anymore.
When Jenny gets a flat tire at 3 am one night, her entire world changes.
Logan Campbell liked his life. He had a thriving business that made him happy, friends he could count on, and the occasional woman to keep his bed warm if he was in the mood.
But when he stops to help the car stranded, he realizes his life isn’t all he thought is was.
Logan and Jenny share an incredible night filled with passion, compatibility, and the best sex of their lives. Logan walks away from the experience knowing he can’t let her go. Until she admits she has a boyfriend.
Logan broods and snaps at everyone in sight while Jenny tries desperately to forget about him. But Jenny can’t stop thinking about Logan, and the way he seemed to know her body better than anyone else ever had.
When they keep getting thrown together, either by their own inability to avoid each other or outside forces, they have to decide if what they have is worth the fight. Or if they should cut their losses and go.

From me to you, With Love
Connor was the guy in high school. The one everyone wanted to be friends with. The guy every girl fantasized about. The guy who didn’t even know I existed. It didn’t really matter, though. High school was forever ago, and I was okay with who I was. Even if I could stand a few less curves.
So, why is Connor asking me to dance? And why is he showing up at my work? And why am I having such a hard time saying no to his sweet words and even sweeter kisses?
It can’t be real. Girls like me don’t end up with guys like him. Do they?
