When it comes to love...Blue Collar is better!

It's time to set aside those sexy billionaires and enjoy stories about the everyday, even sexier bad boys you meet in real life. They may have dirty hands and wear tool belts and jeans instead of Rolex watches, but they're earthy alpha males unafraid to get down and dirty when face to face with a woman in need--whatever her need may be!

Just a few of the titillating stories inside...

In "Elevation" by Megan Mitcham, an always-in-control policewoman trapped in an elevator shaft gets a sexy rescue from the handsome repairman. A lonely woman drives a thousand miles to meet an oil field roughneck ready for a long night of laying pipe in Mia Hopkins' "We Drill Deep While Others Sleep". Jennifer Kacey shows the lengths to which an enterprising gal will go to get the owner of an oil change shop to check her fluids in "The Boss". And those are just a few of the sexy stories inside this collection about the everyday hero next door.

These are men who've built their powerful muscles from hard work rather than inside any gym, and they sure know how to use their hard-earned skills to pleasure a woman...

Sometimes a second chance is all you need… Don’t miss a single classic story in this collection from #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller.

Wild About Harry

Amy Ryan strictly defined herself in three ways: successful businesswoman, devoted mother and grieving widow. Wild certainly never entered into the description. That is, until she met powerful Australian businessman Harry Griffith. Suddenly, Amy was doing all kinds of wild things—enjoying romantic dinners, taking spontaneous luxury vacations… and maybe, finally, falling in love again?

Ragged Rainbows

Mitch Prescott was Shay Kendall’s savior. He’d bought her mother’s mansion on the Washington coast, a financial albatross that Shay couldn’t handle. And now he’s offered her true financial independence—a dream as seductive as Mitch himself. But everything has a price, and the cost might be too much for Shay…

Snowflakes on the Sea

International singing sensation Nathan McKendrick has it all—the looks, the talent, the charisma. It’s not surprising that half the world was infatuated with him, but his heart is with his wife, Mallory. The success of their marriage had always defied the odds, but when the bond between them is damaged, they must fight for everything they took for granted. And now, every Christmas they spend together reminds them that their love is everlasting….

Daring Moves

An encounter with dashing widower Jordan Richards is making Amanda Scott question the walls she’s put up around herself. She’d fallen for the wrong man once before, but perhaps there’s a chance Jordan is different. But dare she fall in love again with a man whose heart holds wounds greater than her own, especially when her own earlier mistakes refuse to stay in the past?

Originally published in 1990, 1986, 1990, and 1990

There’s nothing quite like love to flip a man’s world upside down… Don’t miss a single classic story in this collection from #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller.

State Secrets

Cookbook author Holly Llewellyn is the last person who should be labeled an “enemy of the state”—or is she? After all, her brother is a missing traitor, and with her ties to the president, the Secret Service isn’t taking chances. So they send in agent David Goddard, undercover. But after one glance, David knows Holly isn’t just an “assignment”—she’s a woman who’ll change his life.

Mixed Messages

Mark wasn’t sure the beautiful and spirited Carly had what it took to be a reporter, but he was sure that he wanted her. And Mark never denied himself what he wanted. Only Carly was far better at uncovering the truth than Mark had given her credit for. And sooner or later she’d uncover the most dangerous truth of all—that he couldn’t live without her.

Only Forever

Up-and-coming TV personality Vanessa Lawrence has learned the hard way that jocks are bad news. Her cheating ex-husband is a prime example—and now he won’t stop demanding permission to write lies about her in his tell-all memoir. So when sexy, confident athlete Nick strides into her life, she should have known he’d be nothing but trouble…

Used-To-Be Lovers

Tony Morelli had always pursued the things he wanted with single-minded tenacity and authority. It had been a very successful strategy in business, and it had been just as successful with Sharon Harrison. But when their perfect romance falls apart, it’ll take everything he has to win her back.

Originally published in 1985, 1990, 1989, and 1988
 Fall in love with the Southerlands!

FEELS LIKE HOME

No one knew what it cost her to come home. 

With her career going down in flames and a family history that reads like a bad tabloid, Autumn Maddox can't afford any more PR disasters if she wants to hold her head up in her old home town. So she's going to do the impossible—smile brightly at every insincerely murmured "bless your heart," ignore every not-so-subtle dig, and pretend the town's sexiest bachelor is a eunuch. Well… two out of three isn't bad, right?

Town doctor Jude Southerland is known for two things: saving lives and ducking marriage. So when he almost runs Autumn down in the middle of Main Street and ends up sipping sweet tea with the prodigal daughter a few weeks later, the good townsfolk take notice. As far as Jude's concerned, the last woman anyone would pair him with is the only one he wants. 

Jude's determined to be her knight in shining armor, but Autumn gave up on happily ever afters, small southern towns, and herself a long time ago. What's it going to take to convince the Ladies' Auxiliary, the Rotary Club and the woman of his dreams that their love is meant to be?

LOVING BAILEY

Chef Bailey Southerland can't get any satisfaction – at least not in the way that really matters. Her love life is like a soufflé that never managed to rise. When the mouthwatering writer with his clear blue eyes moves into the cottage down the hill, it looks like things might finally be going her way. She doesn't need him to be Mr. Right, but he has all the makings of a fantastic Mr. Right Now. 

Badly burned by love, Trace Campbell tried to convince himself he's content being just friends with his gorgeous neighbor, Bailey. If he can't get his hands on her at least he can sink them in the soil and grow the produce on his farm that she needs for her restaurant, spending time with her while keeping her at a safe distance. But strawberries are a poor substitute for mind-numbing kisses and when another man shows up and it's obvious he's interested in more than Bailey's cooking, Trace has to dig his head out of the dirt and put his heart on the line or risk losing the woman he loves. 

FEELS LIKE FAMILY

Town doctor, Jude Southerland asked Autumn Maddox to marry him and she said yes. The dress has been bought, the church reserved, and the band booked. Happily ever after here they come.

But when the couple gets an unexpected surprise, plans have to change, leaving the whole town wondering if they will make it to the altar on time.

PRACTICAL ARRANGEMENT

Summer Maddox has had horrible luck when it comes to men. The only thing good to come out of it all is her daughter. She feels guilty that her child doesn't have a father figure, but she"s learned from her mistakes and won't be repeating them

After three tours in Afghanistan, Travis Southerland has finally come home. His body is healing, but his heart still aches for his friends who died in combat. He doesn't know if he'll ever be whole, and the last thing he wants is to have someone depending on him for anything ever again.

After family events keep throwing them together, Travis and Summer can't deny the spark between them. Neither of them are interested in a relationship, but a practical arrangement might solve both of their problems and get their families off their backs. Just because they aren't looking for love doesn't mean it won't find them – if either of them is willing to take a chance.

See what happens when a secret billionaire and an aspiring actress get a little wild in Texas.

A man with a soft spot for women...

Closet Texas millionaire, Tanner Peschke has three months to prove he can make a profit at the family used car dealership or he will lose his job, disappoint his father and break his promise to his dying mother. The root of his problem is women. He can't resist them--any of them. All it takes is the scent of delicate perfume or a misty-eyed gaze from an elderly woman with a sob story, and he becomes silly putty in the hands of his feminine customers. Until, with a stroke of luck and a buck of a mechanical bull, he hires Janine Davis to star with him in the dealership's live TV ads.

A woman who won't let a handsome cowboy get in the way of her dream...

Determined to make a name for herself, Janine needs to pay the bills between acting jobs. The offer to do a series of commercials for Peschke Motors is a chance to get her face "out there". Recognizing a player when she sees one, Janine agrees to co-star with her handsome employer fully intending to keep their relationship strictly professional. First break she gets, she's heading to Hollywood.

Their jungle-themed commercials take a crazy twist, and Tanner finds himself falling...from a sales banner while chasing a monkey. But more importantly, he's falling for Janine. She's just the one woman to tame this cowboy's wild heart. Convincing her to stay with him might be harder than catching a mischievous monkey.
