And just when it seems their May/December romance might stand a chance, a plan gone wrong convinces Dave that the last place Olivia needs to be is in his arms. He finds a way to send her on to bigger and better things, but when her whereabouts become unknown, Dave discovers that maybe dates on a calendar don't mean that much at all. Problem is, unless he can find her, it won't matter.

It’s taken him a long time, but Vic Walters finally has the life he always wanted. His beautiful wife, Laura, was the answer to his dreams, and he’s totally smitten with the kids he never thought he’d have. He has money, a home, cars, clothes, and his family. Love and laughter should fill his days, but horror haunts Vic, and all he can think about are the three women he never meant to hurt. And hurt them he did—physically. He knows it wasn’t his fault. He understands why and how it happened. That, however, does nothing to assuage his guilt. He doesn’t need a miracle. He needs atonement. And there’s only one way to get it.
In the kickoff to the Legacy series, the second spinoff of the Love Under Construction series and following the Citadel series, Atonement is as poignant as a Nicholas Sparks novel with all the makings of true romance and a little humor thrown in. You’ll visit the Walters clan again, and then head straight into uncharted territory as Vic makes three pilgrimages that will change his life forever.
Buy this “sweet with heat” romance from the heart today and meet the biggest, baddest teddy bear of an Italian east of the Mississippi!
When Trish's husband of almost 30 years announces that he's leaving her because she's "boring," she sets out to find an adventure. Her attempt to drink the heartbreak of her divorce away drops her onto a handsome gentleman who invites her to have an adventure, and Trish can't help but say yes.
He’s mysterious, aloof, and he’s got a secret.
She embarks on that journey, submissive training, at the hands of Dave, her mentor, but her path keeps crossing with that of another - Clint Winstead, a Dominant at the BDSM club, Bliss, and the one person in the place who seems to despise her. That's fine with Trish. After all, there are plenty of other Doms there who want to play, and besides, the obvious age difference between her and Clint would make her feel like a cougar, not at all how she sees herself. The lifestyle appeals to her, and what seems odd and scary to her initially turns into fun with the possibility that she’ll find love as she forges relationships with the other members of the club.
But when an annual event at Bliss throws Trish and Clint together for two weeks, both of them are horrified, not by the pairing, but by the feelings they're trying hard to deny. As the time passes, it's harder and harder to deny what they know is true - that is, until one nearly-tragic incident that almost changes both their lives irreparably. And when Trish realizes that continuing on with her commitment could cost her the ultimate - her life - she knows that it has to end. Doesn’t it?
Trish is the queen of second chances, but things are just too scary. Problem is, if she leaves, she’ll never learn his secret.
Or know his heart.
Join the crew at Bliss, the best BDSM club in the region, and get to know the Doms and subs who play there as they learn about bondage, discipline, punishment, and commitment. There’s fun, blistering-hot sex, and maybe even love! With Trish and Clint’s May/December romance, Adventurous Me starts the series with a bang – literally – and it just gets better from there!

Peyton Stokes is pretty sure no woman will ever want him. When he strapped that prosthesis on his lower left leg, he took on the belief that he was off the market for a meaningful relationship forever. That self-imposed label of "cripple" has followed him and dogged him. On a whim, he decides to ask Molly Walters - mature, smart, and beautiful - to go out with him, only to be shocked when she asks him out first. One chance is all he needs to prove to her that he can get the job done, and he wants to take that chance.
Problem is, his best friend, José Flores, unknowingly decides that Molly looks like a pretty good prospect too.
Even though she's having fun with Peyton, Molly can't help but be drawn to the dark haired, dark eyed ex-cage fighter turned security specialist. The fact that he's almost two decades younger than her doesn't hurt her self-esteem either. While Peyton soothes everything in Molly's soul, José's brand of balls-to-the-wall, red-hot fun turns up the heat to scorching every time he touches her. She knows she eventually has to tell them about each other and make some kind decision, and Molly makes one.
She wants them both.
That revelation brings about a turn of events no one could've anticipated. When things fall apart, Molly tries to pick up the pieces, but that's hard when someone you love has disappeared. It'll take everyone who loves him to find him, with or without the help of the one man he loves the most. And that one man has to decide: Are his labels worth losing not one, but two people he loves? He's got to decide quickly. Otherwise, it may be too late - eternally.
Revisit the world of the Walters family in this concluding novel of the Love Under Construction series. You'll find out who lives, who dies, and who expands their world - and their family. And in Renovating a Heart, Book 3, we were left with the question of Nikki Walters' health. That question lives large in Planning an Addition as Tony Walters is left to face the looming prospect that he may have to live out the rest of his life without the only woman who ever really loved him. He's not entirely sure he can do that, but all hope has been exhausted and time is running out. Someone in the family holds the key, but Tony will have to be willing to let her step in. And that will take a giant leap of the faith he's pretty sure he's exhausted.
Funny how everything changes when it's a matter of life or death.
