Next stop: Pain and heartache, coming right up…

Ivy McLain’s grand scheme of making it big? Yeah, it’s going nowhere fast. Every day, her dreams of a fabulous art career are fading a little more. And just when she didn’t believe things could get any worse, her parents plan their huge 40th anniversary party. 

In December.

In cold, snowy Podunk, Idaho.

It’s been five years since Ivy’s stepped foot in her hometown, and that was on purpose, thankyouverymuch. The oversized wide spot in the road holds nothing but truly awful memories for her. 

All right, fine. 

She’s stuck having to return, and she’s stuck playing the part of a dutiful daughter, but that doesn’t mean she has to like it.

All of that changes the moment she meets a rugged cowboy with a slow and sexy smile.

Okay, bowls him over and spills his drink everywhere. Details, details…

Up next: A girl to tear your heart apart…

Austin Bishop is hiding from the world in the small, mountain town of Sawyer, Idaho.

Okay, maybe not from the world, but definitely from the females of the world. 

It isn’t that he thinks they have cooties. After all, he’d had a childhood sweetheart who he’d loved with all of his heart and soul for five years…right up until she dumped him. Receiving her engagement ring in the mail wasn’t exactly the Christmas present he’d been hoping for that year.

That’s all behind him, though. He is girl-free, and thrilled to be that way. Never better. Couldn’t be happier, actually.

All the way up until he runs, quite literally, into the most beautiful, curvy redhead he’s ever seen in his life. Suddenly, canoodling under the mistletoe seems like the best Christmas activity this side of eating homemade snickerdoodles. A fling with no strings attached? There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays.

Except, partway through the twelve days of Christmas, it stops being a fling and starts feeling like a whole lot more.

But Ivy is hiding secrets, and so is he.

When their secrets unravel, can their relationship last? Or will their Christmas romance fizzle once the eggnog runs out?

Christmas of Love is the fifth novella in the Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. it is a sweeter romance with minimal sex and mild language. If you would prefer the completely clean version, it is also available on this storefront. Either way, enjoy!

Iris Morland
Fall in love with THE THORNTONS, a family filled with sexy alpha males, passionate women, and lots of heart, all set in a delightful small town in the Pacific Northwest.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: It’s Christmas time, and the entire Thornton clan is spending the holidays in a cabin deep in the Washington woods.

 

What could go wrong with twelve adults, four kids, and a dog all staying together in one big cabin?

 

Only the most chaotic—and memorable—Christmas ever!

 

Expect kisses under the mistletoe, lots of (spiked) eggnog, and even a surprise wedding as the Thornton clan celebrates the most romantic holiday of all.

 

Author’s Note: I’ll Be Home for Christmas is set six months after the last book, Till There Was You, ends. It’s recommended that you read the other books first, as this novella is an epilogue to the entire series. Merry Christmas and happy reading!

A Wounded Hero

As a firefighter, Jaxson Anderson is well acquainted with danger. He’s charged into burning buildings to rescue men and women, young and old. He’s scaled ladders that towered over blistering infernos, and defied blazes that terrified lesser men.

Fire? He understands. Women? Not so much. Now there’s some real danger. He should know. He’s been burned before. 

He’s not interested in romance, or the perils that come with it. His priority is caring for his two small boys, and making his mark as the new fire chief of Sawyer, but everything changes the day he catches sight of Sugar, the pretty girl who works at the local bakery. Sugar is exactly what he wants: A fun, no-strings distraction. A friends-with-benefits arrangement that won’t break what’s left of his heart.

A Battered Heart

On the heels of an abusive marriage, Sugar Stonemyer is done with men. But when Jaxson Anderson strolls into the bakery with a very wicked offer, she can’t resist. One look at the fireman, and Sugar knows the Sawyer rumor mills haven’t exaggerated. Jaxson’s tall, dark, and smokin’ hot. He wants an arrangement, nothing more, and that’s perfect. 

Or so she thought. 

With each slow seduction, Sugar falls a little more. She has only herself to blame. She didn’t want either of them to have feelings, but that’s not how the game is played…


Flames of Love is the first novel in the Firefighters of Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!

Fall in love with THE THORNTONS, a family filled with sexy alpha males, passionate women, and lots of heart, all set in a delightful small town in the Pacific Northwest. Each book in the series is connected but can be read as a standalone.


BOOK DESCRIPTION: Sheltered her entire life, Jubilee Thornton yearns to spread her wings and fly after a childhood marked by illness. Her first goal? To attract the attention of the handsome schoolteacher she’s had a crush on for years, Heath DiMarco.

 

One fateful night, Jubilee throws caution to the wind and kisses Heath—until he pushes her away and tells her they can never be together.

 

Heartbroken, Jubilee vows to forget Heath and live the life she’s always wanted. In a fit of inspiration, she creates a list of resolutions: to go skinny-dipping, to go on dates, and to finally lose her virginity.

 

Heath DiMarco moved to the small town of Fair Haven seven years ago to escape the memories of his past. Now a well-respected elementary school teacher, he can’t afford to have a dalliance with the youngest sister of his best friend, no matter how much that single kiss on Halloween night shook his world.

 

That is until Heath finds Jubilee’s list of risqué resolutions. He can’t bear the thought of her with any man but him.

 

Yet he knows he can’t have her himself. Instead, Heath decides he’ll vet the men Jubilee wants to date. Jubilee agrees, but only if he teaches her how to flirt—and how to kiss.

 

He knows he should tell her no, but he can’t resist the temptation she presents.

 

As desire heats to a roaring flame between them, secrets threaten everything they both hold dear. Unless they untangle themselves from a dangerous web of lies, they will face heartbreak—or be transformed by a passionate love.

The love of a lifetime, lost but never forgotten…

If he could turn back time, Declan would do things differently. For one, he would've never let go of Iris Blue McLain, the only woman he’s ever loved. Fifteen long and lonely years, and the ache in his heart is as painful as ever. 

When he sees her for the first time since they parted, she’s every bit as pretty as she was years ago. No, she’s even prettier. From across the crowded room, she steals his breath. Same silken, flame-colored hair. Same summer-blue eyes and almost the same smile, only now, there’s a hint of sadness. 

But when he asks her to dance, she wastes no time giving him the brush off. 

She’ll protect her heart, no matter the cost…

The years haven’t been kind to Iris. It all started when Declan broke up with her, leaving her heart shattered. After her car wreck, things went from bad to worse. Now, to top it all off, Declan strolls back into her life, acting like he’s got a right to be there. She can’t risk a second heartbreak. But some things never change, like the way his eyes remind her of his slow seduction, or his work-roughened hands that promise a gentle caress. 

For a moment, the years melt away and Iris wonders if she and Declan might have a second chance. But time can’t heal all wounds, and for two broken people, the secrets of the past threaten to break them once again.

Returning for Love is the fourth novel in the Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. If you would prefer the sweet version, please check out the other listing for this book. Either way, enjoy!
