 If Karen was good at anything, it was writing men off.
She was happily unattached until Mia introduced her to Mario last summer at lunch. Mario was six years younger, and far from Karen's type. Yet, this long haired, sexy, stranger left her intrigued.

Having a man again could be a good thing, now that her single girlfriends were dropping off faster than flies bombed with insect repellent.
 
Karen was eventually hired to help run Mario's business, and that's when the flirting began.
The intrigue remained, but that invisible line had never been crossed. Maybe it was time to step up her game.

A business trip with Mario turned Karen's fantasy into nail biting chaos, showing her that their age difference wouldn't be the only obstacle on her road to relationship bliss.

 It's not that Tina wanted to be a male basher, it was just part of her persona-she couldn't help herself.

To her, men were an unnecessary distraction, full of themselves and nothing she had a desire to indulge in, that is, until Dan Mason strolled into town and literally smashed into her at Amelia's.

Seeing someone as gorgeous as Dan sent Tina's desire meter into overdrive at an alarming rate.

A summer of exciting life changes was on the horizon for the girls of Tarrytown, and if Tina ever hoped to have a chance with Dan Mason, she would have to make changes too...beginning with herself.

Mia James almost had it all…

At thirty, she was a successful photographer with the craziest but most loyal friends in the world and a wonderful life in a picturesque village. The only things missing were a husband and a brood of kids. Love happens when you least expect it, her mom always said.

An appointment to show her photography portfolio brought her front and center with Jack Barnes, a gorgeous, successful Manhattan businessman. Mia was smitten, and they married less than a year later. Unfortunately, the marital bliss she craved never showed up.

Jack, the controlling absentee husband, had a secret: someone else was occupying his mind and bed. Mia had no idea until a chance sighting revealed the real Jack with his mystery woman.

Payback was definitely in order and way overdue. With a little help from her friends and a lot of Merlot, Mia was on a mission to take Jack down.

With hilarious speed bumps, hiccups, and crazy calamities along the way, Mia’s ridiculous plot for payback turned into a chance for unexpected friendships and real love.

If Sasha Renaud had a calling, it was to be a domestic goddess...
 
Everyone was shocked when Sasha, the catty, self-centered, high fashion model did an abrupt life change with such ease. She wanted to simplify things, and live her destiny, or what she envisioned it to be. That meant men had to go. She couldn’t be bothered with their kind. They were untrustworthy, toxic waste, meant for a dump site, and nothing more. There was only so much love to go around, and it wouldn’t be wasted on the manflesh.
 
Josh Redmond, on the other hand, had plans all his own. He was smitten with Sasha. In his eyes, she was finer than the Mona Lisa, a goddess like no other. Josh, being a well-known Realtor in town, was eye candy for sure, but he had a reputation and it wasn’t good. He was the local man-tramp, or womanizer, to put it nicely. He was determined to prove himself worthy of Sasha’s attention. Josh was certain selling her the Victorian mansion of her dreams, and giving her a puppy as a house warming gift, would softened her in his favor.

When Sasha received that menacing call one autumn afternoon, her newly perfected life went into a catastrophic, hurricane level tail-spin. In a split-second, her Utopian dream was uprooted. With her crazy, but loyal friends, and a lot of Merlot, Sasha set out to reinvent herself, again.
 
Because of Josh’s kindness and patience, Sasha may allow love to fill her heart one more time.

Life sails along smoothly on beautiful St. Thomas for Abby Melrose Bellavance, or so she thinks. That is, until her husband Remy steals her trust fund and disappears for parts unknown. Now, with five million reasons to write off men for good, she returns to Charleston, broke and groveling at her mother’s feet.

Living again in the opulent mansion on South Battery, Abby is thrown another curve ball.  Her mother passes away, leaving Abby with an enormous home but no money to support it.

Turning the mansion into a boardinghouse has its advantage—immediate cash—and disadvantage—two of the hottest men in Charleston are now Abby’s tenants.

Abby wants love again, especially with hunky Erik, the handyman, and sexy Brandon, the prominent attorney, living in the mansion with her. They are so different, yet they’re similar in one way she needs to avoid—they are men, and she should keep her distance.

As the southern summer blazes on, Abby’s life becomes even more complicated. Personal secrets are revealed, and fate deals her one final blow. She wonders if she will ever be given a second chance at falling in love.

Victoria Alonso, or “Vic” for short, was the funniest, most confident and loyal Puerto Rican babe in Westchester County. That was her public persona, anyway, and everyone loved her.

Mia James, Vic’s best friend since kindergarten, was a beautiful blond bombshell. No problem there until the day Mia introduced Vic to Max Cole. He sat on that Harley, looking hotter than any living, breathing man had a right to, with a dimpled grin and windswept wild-child hair. Vic wasn’t in the market for a man, but there he sat anyway. He was delicious eye candy and made her legs wobble like lime Jell-O. Vic fell for him hard, but couldn’t ignore the fact that Mia had had a brief but tempestuous affair with Max.

Vic hid her insecurities well under her tough-girl façade. Her hair was frizzy, and her butt was too big—she knew that competing with the gorgeous, perfect Mia would be next to impossible. Through heartache, crazy antics, laughter, and Merlot, Vic searched for her own truth. Letting go of her insecurities would show her how to love Max, Mia, and even herself.
