A steamy, full-length, standalone romance with a guaranteed HEA from USA Today Bestselling Author J.H. Croix! If you like smoking hot romance with alpha men and strong women, you’ll love this series! 

What happens when different worlds collide and love gets caught in the middle?

Garrett Hamilton is the quintessential ladies man, a sexy, wealthy corporate lawyer whose work keeps him far too busy to think about romance. Yet, he’s lost his drive to win cases and finds himself hopping on a plane to visit his brother at Last Frontier Lodge in Alaska. Delia Peters is a single mother who learned the hard way that lust often doesn’t translate to love. She figures life is good enough if she can pay the bills. Love is the stuff of dreams, not real life.

Garrett has spent so many years driven almost entirely by his work that he’s at loose ends. He’s hoping an unplanned escape will refresh and renew him. He didn’t count on Delia nearly bringing him to his knees with her unassuming beauty. One kiss and he’s lost. A man whose career was built on his ability to spin any situation to his advantage finds himself stumbling when faced with a woman whose mere presence rattles his control.

Delia is finally finding some stability with a new job as the chef at the local ski lodge. She’s so accustomed to the busy pace of single motherhood that the thought of romance hasn’t crossed her mind in years. She’s entirely unprepared for the scorching hot attraction between her and Garrett. One kiss sends her reeling…and wanting more than she ever imagined.

Delia and Garrett can’t deny the depth of desire that simmers between them. Falling in love wasn’t in the plans for either of them. Garrett is everything Delia dreamed of and more. Delia touches places in Garrett’s heart that he hadn’t known existed. Can Delia learn to trust in love? Can Garrett get out of his own way long enough to show Delia how much she matters?

Just This Once is a friends to lovers story between a brilliant prosecutor who’s sworn off love and a Navy SEAL who’s been hiding his feelings for too long. Becca Hamilton is a busy prosecutor who’s dedicated and passionate about her work. After being left high and dry days before her wedding several years ago, she promised herself she wouldn’t let her heart become vulnerable again. Yet, she didn’t count on temptation in the form of Aidan McNamara.

Aidan McNamara is many a woman’s dream—a tall, dark, sexy-as-hell military type who tends to save the day so often it’s annoying. Becca has been quite successful at ignoring the spark that burns every time Aidan is near. Until he shows up and happens to save her evening. One scorching hot kiss on a rainy night, and Becca begins to question the limits she set for herself. She gambles she can allow herself just one night with Aidan.

Aidan has been half in love with Becca since the first time he laid eyes on her. A chance encounter kindles hope in his heart. He can’t say no when she asks for one night, but he knows from the start he wants more.

Becca quickly discovers that ‘just once’ won’t even come close to satisfying her desire. She’s completely unprepared for the depth of feelings Aidan elicits. Forced to take a much-needed break from work, she decides a journey to Last Frontier Lodge in Alaska might give her some perspective and a long overdue adventure. A trip she hoped would clear her head only leaves her missing Aidan so much she can hardly stand it.

Aidan is a man of plans and action, but with Becca, he’s winging it every step of the way. When she takes off to Alaska, he finds himself following her even though it goes against his grain. Can Becca let down her guard long enough to let Aidan into her heart? Can Aidan convince her he’s worth more than just once?

Welcome to the bestselling Last Frontier Lodge series – a sexy and steamy contemporary romance series set against the wilderness and beauty of small-town Alaska!

Ginger Sanders believes in love and happily-ever-after for everyone. Except her. At thirty, she’s already been married and divorced. She’s bright, brash, beautiful, and very practical. So practical that she’s boxed her broken heart up and put it away for safekeeping after her young marriage fell apart and shattered her belief that love was possible for her. Busy making sure all of her friends find love, she’s completely thrown off guard when she falls at the feet of a ski god—literally.

Cam Nash is the ski god in question—a man of near physical perfection and sexy enough to melt the snow on every mountain nearby. Cam took a job at Last Frontier Lodge in the wilds of Alaska to escape the painful memories of his brother’s death. Skiing has always helped clear his mind, so he’s hoping he can ski enough to forget. The last thing on his mind is a relationship of any kind. Until Ginger takes a tumble in the snow and lands at his feet. Her spark burns so bright, he can’t look away.

Two people who aren’t looking for love find themselves falling fast and hard. Passion fans the flames hotter and hotter, while Ginger and Cam stumble in the face of their feelings. Can Ginger believe in possibilities again? Can Cam allow himself to find happiness?

Sometimes what we run from leads us exactly where we need to be.

Jessa Hamilton has nowhere else to go. So she’s packed up her little blue truck and driven to Alaska, seeking refuge at Last Frontier Lodge where at least she has family she can count on. A fender bender lands her in the path of Eli Brooks, a man of pure, well, manliness. Rugged and sexy with a smile that sends sparks flying through her, Jessa has no idea what to do with the way Eli makes her feel.

Eli has plenty on his mind and none of it has anything to do with meeting a woman who makes him reconsider his commitment to avoiding romance. A painful past led Eli to seek peace in the land he loves—the wilderness of Alaska. Eli is a classic Alaskan—he breathes hunting and fishing. Jessa is unlike any woman he’s ever encountered—quirky, sexy, independent and…a vegetarian.

While Jessa tries to put the pieces of her life together, a surprise from the past forces Eli to question just how much running from the past has gotten him. As they each grapple with their own ghosts, passion burns like wildfire between them.

Sometimes when you stumble and fall, you discover who’s there to catch you

Lacey Adams runs at life full bore. She’s a tomboy of the highest order and doesn’t think twice about striding deep into the wilds of Alaska to lead backcountry hikes. She lives and breathes independence and doesn’t rely on anyone. Until life throws her a curveball, and she falls right into the arms of Quinn Haynes.

Quinn is conveniently strong enough to catch Lacey’s fall. He also happens to be an old friend whom she just noticed is way to sexy for her own good. How Lacey managed to get by without ever noticing Quinn was smoking hot, she didn’t know. Now, every time he’s near, she’s afraid she might melt into a puddle.

Quinn is returning home to Alaska after a few years away finishing his medical degree. Lacey might have never noticed him, but he most definitely noticed her. She’s just about the most beautiful woman he’s ever known, her strength and fearlessness so sexy she takes his breath away. He’d long ago given up ever thinking he might have a chance with her. Until one kiss from her sends his tamped down desire up in flames.

Lacey falls into Quinn’s arms for all the wrong reasons, but neither one of them can turn away from the sparks flying between them. Meanwhile, Lacey is facing down a challenge to the strength that defines her and finds herself turning to Quinn for support in ways she never imagined.

Can Lacey let down her guard and allow herself to fall in more ways than one? Can Quinn convince her that what lies between them is worth it?

Friends with benefits? How about enemies with benefits?

Jared Winters has a stick up his you-know-what. He’s annoying, cocky, and H-O-T on top of it.

Susie Hammond wants nothing to do with Jared. Nothing at all. Small problem: she can’t stop thinking about him. Or about the kiss-that-never-happened. Except it did. And it was H-O-T. So hot, she can’t forget it no matter how hard she tries. 

Susie’s also what she thinks of as an accidental virgin. Didn’t plan it and wishes it weren’t so. The last man she wants to learn her secret is Jared. Le sigh.

Susie is a hurricane force—beautiful, brash, funny, and bossy. She’s the living, breathing example of the kind of woman Jared wants nothing to do with. He’s not interested in relationships—too messy and complicated. 

Susie takes complicated to new levels. Jared never meant to kiss her. He’d like to forget that d*mn kiss. Except he can’t. Not at all. In fact, he keeps kissing her. And then he gets a glimpse of the vulnerability under the surface and can’t help but want to be everything Susie needs in a man.

The spark between Susie and Jared has been on slow burn for years. Explosion might not be enough to describe what happens when they finally give in to the need simmering between them.
