She’s loved him forever…



The last thing traveling nurse Evie Steele expects to find aboard the RV housing her mobile health clinic is her brother’s best friend. As always, Deke’s close proximity stirs her forbidden desires and long-suppressed dreams. But his sudden reappearance in her life and curious interest in her patients makes Evie wonder what he’s hiding.



…but now his secrets could destroy them both.



Special agent Deke Conrad is in big trouble. Not only does he have a thing for his friend’s little sister, but what should be a routine mission is turning into a tour of temptation and survival. He fooled himself into thinking he could keep the beautiful and dynamic Evie in the dark while he used the cover of her Med Mobile to track down a merciless wildlife trafficker. But he didn't anticipate the lure of her scent or the warmth of her smile…or the string of dead bodies littering their path.



When Evie winds up in his enemy’s crosshairs, Deke must unleash every weapon in his arsenal to save her, including his heart. But will he be too late?

A rough-around-the-edges country boy falls for the one woman who could make his dream…or break his heart.


Britt Steele is fiercely protective of what he loves. Even if it means putting his own ambitions aside. He’s worked too hard keeping a red wolf pack from extinction to let some city girl auction off their sanctuary. But Randi is no pushover. He’s watched—and wanted—her from behind a whiskey glass for months. She’s determined, much too tempting, and quickly turning Britt’s attempts at persuasion into seduction. And he’ll need every weapon in the Steele arsenal to change her mind.


Miranda Shepherd’s bar is her passion, but money's flowing out faster than she can pour a drink. To save her business, Randi must sell her family’s land to the highest bidder. One man stands in her way: ruggedly sexy Britt Steele. The definition of strong and silent, Britt’s gruff exterior hides a raw vulnerability she’s aching to explore. Yet Randi knows all about sacrificing for your dreams—and isn’t willing to give up on hers so easily. Still, Britt’s heated caresses are all too convincing.


Some offers are too good to be true. When the buyer's real motive surfaces, Randi and Britt join forces against a ruthless hunter. But protecting the wolves leaves them fighting for their own lives…and their new love.

The Steele brothers have a problem.


A big one.


In his own way, each is slowly dying inside.


Grif is jaded.

Reid is unsettled.

Britt is frustrated.

Jonah is bored.


But what none of them realize is their loyalty to their hometown will force them to decide between the life they each thought they wanted and a love they can’t live without.


In The Beginning, the Steele brothers go all-in to save their small-town from bankruptcy, and readers will catch their first glimpse of Grif and Carlie Beth, Reid and Brynne, and Britt and Miranda. And let’s not forget the baby brother billionaire, Jonah, who has secrets of his own.


Book 2: Going HARD


Slick sports agent Griffin Steele is living the highlife in Los Angeles, far from the shadow of the North Carolina mountains where he grew up. But when his hometown falls on hard times and needs his help, Grif reluctantly agrees to commute between coasts. He never expects the lush scenery, in the form of pretty tomboy Carlie Beth Parrish, to be such a temptation.


After an impetuous one-night stand with Grif Steele fifteen years ago, hardworking blacksmith Carlie Beth has tried to make a living and raise her daughter in the hometown she loves. Then, too-sexy-for-his-Rolex Grif blows back into town like the perfect storm, making Carlie feel less like a thirty-something mom and more like an infatuated teenager.


When a stalker targets his hometown and Grif suspects Carlie Beth might be the next victim, he can't help but step in to protect her. But once he discovers the fourteen-year-old secret she's been keeping from him, will he embrace the truth or will he turn his back on Steele Ridge and Carlie Beth forever?

After a knee injury permanently sidelines him from his dream job, Reid heads home to the mountains of Steele Ridge to regroup, but small-town life isn’t cutting it for a man accustomed to action. When sexy boutique owner Brynne Whitfield captures his attention, Reid thinks he’s found the perfect distraction from boredom. 


The last thing recently-dumped Brynne is interested in is another fast-talking man who will break her heart and dismiss her like yesterday’s trash. Even if Reid Steele’s body does make her yearn for things she knows are as bad for her as hot fudge sundaes.


When Brynne’s closest friend is murdered and she’s also targeted, Reid can’t resist the lure of action and goes on a hunt for answers to disturbing questions. But can he protect her from a cold-blooded killer—and win her battered heart?

Miranda Shepherd's quirky bar is her passion, but money's flowing out faster than she can pour a drink. An outsider's bid to purchase the land she's long called home will save her business. Only one man stands in Randi's way--a dangerously handsome and persuasive man who poses equally dangerous questions that rock her whole world.


An unscrupulous trophy hunter wants the game-rich property and he'll stop at nothing to get his hands on the wolves' haven and another trophy for his collection. When members of the pack begin disappearing, Britt and Randi must join forces to protect the wolves and save the love of a lifetime.
