Beck never wanted the chaotic life of a sport star—especially not at the cost of his marriage to the only woman he’s ever truly loved. But his career is a runaway train—and he’s afraid it’s too late to hit the brakes.
But when a mix-up leaves Beck and Marley stranded together for Christmas Eve on the barrier island where Beck proposed years before, old memories burn bright—and sparks fly hotter than a bonfire on the beach.
Could the magic of the season bring the gift of a second chance, just in time for Christmas?
Erika Marks is a women’s fiction writer and the author of Little Gale Gumbo, The Mermaid Collector, The Guest House and It Comes In Waves (July, 2014). On the long and winding road to becoming published, she worked many different jobs, including carpenter, cake decorator, art director, and illustrator. But if pressed, she might say it was her brief tenure with a match-making service in Los Angeles after college that set her on the path to writing love stories (not that there isn’t romance in frosting or power tools!) A native New Englander, she now makes her home in Charlotte, NC, with her husband, a native New Orleanian who has taught her to make a wicked gumbo, and their two little mermaids.
Fourteen years after graduation, Calder has traded his rebel lifestyle to become an ER doctor—but his sex appeal is every bit as powerful as Thea remembers. Could her short-term residence be the perfect chance to live out a teenage fantasy? Or could their reunion be a chance for something more?
Everything's naughtier after dark...
Billionaire security expert Brett Bad has had his eye on his brother's gorgeous legal assistant, Sophie Roberts, for years. He wants nothing more from her than a single night between the sheets to satisfy his desires. But Sophie is a white-picket-fence girl, and she's turned him down more times than he cares to count.
Sophie is all about forever kisses and happily ever afters. But she can't deny her attraction to Brett, as enticed by his bad-boy behavior as she is by his devastating looks and his painful past, which she'd like to help heal.
When Sophie's friend urges her to throw caution to the wind, Sophie leaves the door to her heart ajar and Brett charges in. But this Bad boy doesn't know a thing about romance and has no interest in forever, forcing Sophie to make her toughest decision yet follow her heart or protect it?

She writes sexy contemporary romance, contemporary women's fiction, romantic suspense, thrillers, and historical fiction - perfect beach reads - with emotionally compelling characters that stay with you long after you turn the last page.
He’s realistic about his options these days. He’s content. He doesn’t need or expect any more than that in life. At least not until his favorite country singer, Summer Breese, comes to stay in the valley. She’s his dream girl and even sweeter in person than she seems in the media. She even seems to like him, too! But what’s the point? She won’t be here for long. Carter can’t let himself fall for her. He knows it’ll break his heart when she has to leave.
Summer Breese has come to Paradise Valley to recuperate. Her singing career was going from strength to strength until the day she found herself unable to speak above a whisper. Her doctors have recommended rest—for three months. Will three months be long enough to recover her voice, and will it be too long for her to resist, big, sweet Carter?
