Twin sisters - twice the trouble.

Twelve months after disappearing from Jacob's life, the woman who broke his heart, supermodel Gabriella Dolman, is back. But things have changed. Now Gabriella is a photographer - still fabulously beautiful - but no longer glamorous, and no longer looking for love. Though Gabriella claims she just wants to move on without him, Jacob's pretty certain that her reaction to their red-hot kisses implies otherwise.


Tobin Gillespie believes in taking a stand, and he never turns his back on a challenge. So when his work as a PR guru brings research scientist Sophie Dolman back into his life, her obnoxious behaviour and lethal putdowns aren't enough to put him off - quite the reverse. And the more they clash, the more determined he is to break down the wall around her heart and claim it for his own.

If you enjoy Bella Andre, Marie Force, Mills and Boon or Harlequin Romances you will like Gabriella and Jacob's story.

About the author

CC MACKENZIE is a USA Today bestselling author, which means she no longer does laundry or grocery shopping.

Born in Scotland, she could write her name when she was three and excelled in English. In spite of failing Math, she went on to a successful career in International Banking specialising in trade finance, which just goes to show Karma has a hilarious sense of humour. Once upon a time she was dared to dance with cheer leading pompoms to Love Shack by the b-52's on top of a moving truck. She did and she has the pics to prove it.

Readers have dubbed her books "made me laugh and made me cry", "hot" and "page turners" all of which have delighted her enough to put in her bio, but humbled her enough not to tell her H in case he wants to bring her down a peg or two and make her do her own laundry.

If you meet CC in the flesh, you should call her Christine. She writes hot fairy tales for adults, contemporary romantic comedy and futuristic paranormal romance thrillers.

She loves to hear from her readers; you can find her at:

Destiny can sneak up on you. Or it can smack you in the face.

She's damaged. She's beautiful, responsible, fascinating. And she's bewitched him. She's his client. He's her architect. He's long past being her friend. He wants to possess her... bed her... wed her. She believes she'll never find the courage to love again.

He's about to prove her wrong...

Janine Faulkner lives life by her own rules. After the death of her husband, she's thrown herself into raising her baby daughter, and into her position as Chief Operating Officer for Sweet Sensations, a bakery.

Janine's happy with her life. She's not looking for love - not even with Josh Erichsen, the architect she hires to bring her family home, The Grange, back to life. His charm and ruthless good looks might invade her every waking moment, but she's wary of a man who seems too good to be true...

Josh is drawn to the beautiful single mother from the start. He wants a lot more than the friendship she offers. But Janine's past hide chilling secrets that have returned to haunt her... secrets with the power to keep them apart, forever.

 “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

This is a sizzling love story with a superb cast of characters. Supermodel Sean Gallagher is catch-your-breath gorgeous but ruined by his troubled past in Ireland, as well as the tragic death of his brother.

No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Sean a backbone of steel and a heart untouched by love.

No one until Katherine Mary Kennedy, that is...

In his role as best man for his friend’s wedding, Sean's keeping a close eye on the stag party. From the moment his former girl-next-door steps onto the stage at Ludlow Hall as Pousse-Café, leader of the international burlesque troupe, THE GOLDDIGGERS, Sean's captivated.

Burlesque star Katherine has had more than her fair share of heartache and broken dreams.

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe delivers another winner when small-town matchmakers decide a billionaire is the perfect man for a sassy single mom who is too busy for love. 


"This is one of my favorite Romance books EVER!" ~Amazon Reader Review


When single-mom Clare Gray delivers her famous cupcakes to the general store on her way to work, she meets a sexy, out-of-town businessman who is in need of lodging...and match-making locals decide her available-for-rent spare room is the perfect solution.  


After becoming a widowed single mom at eighteen, Clare traded her dreams of love to focus on raising her daughter. The last thing she wants is for a man to invade her life, even if he is deliciously tempting and wonderful with her daughter. But when late-night cupcake baking turns intimate, suddenly her heart is at risk once again.


High-powered executive Griffin Friesé is in town on a personal mission, and he has no time for love. But when he moves into Clare's farmhouse, he soon finds that life doesn't always give you want you want…but it might give you exactly what you need. Gradually, Clare's smile, her passion for life, and her small-town loyalty awaken something inside him, something that makes him yearn for a life, a love, and a family he's never had. 


Can a single mom find the love and family she always wanted with a man afraid to open his heart?  


"What do I wish for?" Clare looked up at the stars, at the way they lit up the sky. "That's what I wish for." She gestured to the expanse of twinkling darkness. "A love so huge and so powerful, that it sweeps across everything. It's always there. It's fuller than a heart can hold, so it spills out into the world and fills everything around it with more love. It's there when I fall asleep. It's there when I wake up." She met Griffin's gaze. "It's there every time I breathe in, every time I breathe out, and with every beat of my heart."


"Heartwarming doesn't even begin to describe this romance! Wow!" ~Vickie R. (Amazon Review)


"I can't say enough good things about this book. I couldn't stop reading once I started." ~Carla E. (Amazon Review)


"A testament to Stephanie Rowe's skill and talent, one that deserves applause... phenomenal... superbly developed." ~Bex 'N' Books

“Sophie Love's ability to impart magic to her readers is exquisitely wrought in powerfully evocative phrases and descriptions….This is the perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

35 year old Emily Mitchell has fled her job, apartment and ex-boyfriend in New York City for her father's historic, abandoned home on the coast of Maine, needing a change in her life and determined to make it a B&B.

Emily is still reeling from Daniel’s proposal. As all seems to finally fall into place in her life, she looks forward to an exciting engagement year ahead, from shopping for a venue and a wedding dress, to creating her invite list, to setting a date.

But all does not goes as planned. The endless events of the engagement year add more stress than joy, putting pressure on their relationship as they are forced to make hard choices. Adjusting to life as parents doesn’t make it any easier, as Chantelle runs into problems at school and as a custody battle looms over them. As Christmas and New Years approach, the stress is only compounded.

Meanwhile, as the B&B adds new guests and staff and as they find more priceless antiques, Emily discovers a shocking secret that just may bring her one step closer to finding her father.

Will she and Daniel get married? Or will the stress of the engagement break them apart forever?

“A very well written novel, describing the struggle of a woman (Emily) to find her true identity. The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”

"Money. Fame. Success.



Honey, I'm a GOLDDIGGER.

I'm truly walkin’ in high cotton.

I have it all.

Sure, I've gone through real hard times and made mistakes along the way.

Who hasn't?

I'm not a perfect person.

But success comes with a price.

Seems I have a stalker.

Since I'm his object of desire, the notes detailing what he's gonna do to me have gotten everyone from the police to my boss's knickers in a knot.

You might ask, am I scared?

’Scuse me, sistas. I'm from Texas. I learned to shoot a gun before I could walk.

A nut job don't worry me none.

Remember I mentioned a past mistake?

Well, the mistake just walked through the door.

Cole Buchanan's always been too good looking with a hot bod and sultry bedroom eyes. Once upon a time, Cole and I did a lot of messin' up the straw in my daddy's hayloft.

These days, he's an ex-navy seal, runs a personal protection business, and looks like a man straight out of central casting for the Men in Black, complete with the shades and piss poor attitude.

And he's here to protect me.

(Hang on a minute while I stop laughing).

But then a tragic secret from the past comes back to bite my ass, and both our lives are changed...
Forever."
