  Black Friday.

The lines in Miami financier Jake Westin's world are crisp and easy to delineate: black and red, profit and loss, single and planning to stay that way. Until the day after Thanksgiving when Allison Jeffries—a woman he’s heard about for four and a half years but never met—calls to tell him the world they’ve shared from opposite sides of the country will never be the same.

Black ice.

Kenny Rydell—Jake's best friend and only link to the "bad ol' days" of his youth—and wife Pam died in a car accident on the way to a Sierra ski resort, leaving their son, Caleb, with his grandmother, who suffered a heart attack upon hearing the news.

Lives changed in a blink.

Caleb’s godparents—two grieving strangers who never imagined the worst-case scenario becoming a reality—must decide how to best care for the little boy they both love. The confirmed “rake” and the computer “geek” call a truce to survive the holidays, but no one expects them to fall in love --except, possibly Caleb.

How far would you go for the sake of a child?


CALEB’S CHRISTMAS WISH is Book 3 in the WEST COAST HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER series. If you're a fan of true-to-life romance with believable characters in settings you’ll want to add to your bucket list, you'll love this action-packed series from Debra Salonen—past winner of Romantic Times Reviewer's Career Achievement "Series Storyteller of the Year" award.

Sometimes, a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do.


George Ralston’s human family needs his help. Life was better with a mom and nothing’s been the same since the old one left.  George may not be a retriever, but he has the perfect replacement in mind.


The Paws Spa owner Kara Williams’s goals are written in stone. The single mother of twins has scrimped and saved to take her pet care salon to the next level. She loves her animal clients but can’t always say the same about their owners. Even Brad Ralston—her youthful secret crush. His dog, George, is acting out. Rumor has it his son is, too. Recently divorced men—no matter how attractive—are Kara’s kryptonite and she keeps her distance…until a huge winter storm takes the roof off her house.


Dog trouble. Ex-wife trouble. Kid trouble. Restaurant owner and chef Brad Ralston desperately needs a live-in housekeeper. If she comes with twin little girls and a bunny, so be it. Twice burned—his ex-wife and ex-best friend ran off to Mexico together—Brad’s heart isn’t part of any business agreement…unless a matchmaking Great Dane has his way.


Forever and Ever, By George is Book 7 in the West Coast Happily-Ever-After series. If you’re a fan of romantic comedies packed with cute kids, an ark of animals, and a crotchety side-kick or two, you won’t want to miss Debra Salonen’s sweet, fun, feel-good story set on the Oregon coast. 


If you've ever wondered what your dog is thinking, you owe it to yourself to buy Forever and Ever, By George.

 

Welcome to the West Coast--where Happily-Ever-After is state of the heart.

 

It’s just for the summer...

Single mom Anne Fraser is this close to breaking through the glass ceiling of corporate hotel management. She can’t afford to take off a whole summer to fill her late mother’s shoes at the Silver Rose Guest Ranch even if a few months out of the city might be just what the doctor ordered for eight-year-old Zoey. Anne can’t say no to her beloved stepfather’s request--even if the job means sharing the reins with the man whose kiss she’s never forgotten.

A little R&R at a B&B…

Professional bull rider Will Cavanaugh was this close to his goal of becoming World Champion when an injury sidelined him. Spending the summer managing his grandfather’s guest ranch might please the team doctor, but working with Anne brings challenges Will never saw coming—like falling in love. But that doesn’t mean he’s giving up on his dream.

Battered and a bit disillusioned by life, Will and Anne return to the Silver Rose to repay old debts. To fall in love again. But only for the summer.

 

Or, maybe...for a lifetime.
