 In search of sleep, he may have found the woman of his dreams…

Jared Nairn needs a new start and a good night’s rest. After enduring a combat zone, a rocky divorce, and chronic insomnia, the quaint California town of Sanctuary seems like just the place to rebuild. He hopes that an appointment with the local meditation expert will cure his lack of sleep. After duty on the frontline, hypnosis should be a breeze…

Mai Tran has treated her fair share of men. So when a nervous veteran strides into her office, it’s nothing out of the ordinary… except for the instant attraction that seems to be completely mutual. But with someone spreading false rumors about nefarious activity during Mai’s sessions, she’s hesitant to start a relationship with a client. Any potential scandal could break her and bankrupt her practice…

After a meditation track mixup, Jared and Mai can’t help but indulge their more passionate natures. When both of their pasts come back to haunt them, the veteran and the hypnotist must decide just how much they’re willing to risk for love…

About the author

Evie Snow is the pen name for a globe-trotting writing team working towards their very own Happily Ever After:Best-selling author Georgina (George) Penney does the actual writing and reads far too many books. In past lives, she got herself a communications degree, studied hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, and was well on the way to a contemporary history PhD when moving to Saudi Arabia re-introduced her to a teenage love of romance novels.

Her husband, Tony (AKA The Kraken) helps out with plot wrangling and is in charge of caffeine distribution. In previous lives, Tony worked all over the world as a petroleum engineer. He found the oil industry to be far stranger than fiction.

Together, George and Tony have lived in a bunch of countries including Australia, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Brunei Darussalam, and Scotland. In the past, they've stayed in a Yurt in the Scottish Highlands, scoured desert souks for souvenirs, swam in the Aegean sea, snoozed on beaches in Thailand and fraternized with Orangutans in the Bornean jungle. And wherever they go, they're always on the lookout for wonderful local food and to have a chat with anyone who has a few free hours to spare.

When not writing warm and funny contemporary romance together, George and Tony can currently be found roaming random Australian country towns, continuing in their never-ending quest for the perfect scone.

Meet the men of Oxford magazine! In the first captivating spin-off of Lauren Layne’s Sex, Love & Stiletto series, a not-so-friendly battle of the sexes turns into a scorching office romance.

Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures he’s got the inside track. Then his boss drops a bombshell: Cole has competition. Female competition, in the form of a fresh-faced tomboy who can hang with the dudes—and write circles around them, too. Cole usually likes his women flirty and curvy, but he takes a special interest in his skinny, sassy rival, if only to keep an eye on her. And soon, he can’t take his eyes off her.

Penelope Pope knows all too well that she comes off as just one of the guys. Since she’s learned that wanting more usually leads to disappointment, Penelope’s resigned to sitting on the sidelines when it comes to love. So why does Cole make her want to get back in the game? The man is as arrogant as he is handsome. He probably sees her as nothing more than a barrier to his dream job. But when an unexpected kiss turns into a night of irresistible passion, Penelope has to figure out whether they’re just fooling around—or starting something real.

A Scottish millionaire hiding a dark past. A chatty Texan looking for love. Sparks fly when southern hospitality goes awry…

Ian Buchanan has spent a lifetime distancing himself from a brutal childhood, forced to fight in bare-knuckle boxing matches on freezing Scottish Highland moors… He has since gained money, prestige and the respect of his peers, but now all that’s at risk. He’s been framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Now he’s seeking haven in a charming cabin in Texas Hill Country while he devises a plan to clear his name. But what Ian hasn’t counted on is his curvy, chatty Texan hostess, Sophie Grey, a woman who soon has him thinking there may be more pleasurable ways to spend his time in exile.
