Meet Cute Romance

Book 5

9

 Sometimes love begins with a little friendly blackmail...The historic Madrigal Theater in the heart of downtown Wishful is on the verge of closing its doors, and Piper Parish is on a mission to save it--even if it means pulling a little deception to get her best friend back up on the stage where she had her heart broken. When new-to-town newspaperman Myles Stewart catches on to his co-star's shenanigans, he has a choice--keep quiet or get to the bottom of things. He's never been able to resist a story...and he's not sure he wants to resist Piper.

Like the other books in the Meet Cute Romance line, Once Upon A Setup is a novelette covering the first meeting of a romantic couple. Readers who fall in love with Myles and Piper will be happy to know that their story continues all the way to happily ever after in Just For This Moment, Book 4 in the Wishful Romance series. Both stories can be read and enjoyed on their own.

*A companion story to Be Careful, It's My Heart*


A novelette of approximately 13,000 words.

It was a terrible idea. But that doesn’t stop Sarah Meadows from saying yes to covering for her identical twin sister at staff orientation week at Camp Firefly Falls.  It’s just a few days and she'll be back to finishing her master's thesis, right?  But when her sexy, ex-park ranger partner figures out her secret, she’s got her work cut out convincing him not to turn her in.
Beckett Hayes knows he should report Sarah to the boss, but instead, he finds himself agreeing to train her.  There’s just something about those big, doe eyes and all that sass.  But when Sarah starts to matter more than he planned, the pressure's on.  Can he convince her to take the road less traveled or will this one week have to be enough?
A novelette of approximately 16k words.  This story is a crossover introduction to the Camp Firefly Falls series.  Check out my full novel in the series, Second Chance Summer.

  **Same story...updated cover!**

Sam “Mozart” Reed’s life changed the day his little sister was found abused and murdered when he was fifteen. He’s spent the past nineteen years looking for the serial killer who took his sister from him and ruined his family. Using his connections, and SEAL training, Mozart believes he’s finally tracked the killer to the town of Big Bear, California. 

 Summer Pack is working in a crappy motel up at Big Bear Lake until she can find something better, more meaningful, more real. Living in an unhealthy situation, she meets a man who is everything she’s ever dreamed about and who helps her see that there are some people in the world who will actually do what they say they will. 

But somewhere in Big Bear a killer is waiting to strike again. Watching for the perfect victim.

**Protecting Summer is the 4th book in the SEAL of Protection Series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s recommended you read the books in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the series.

What do a tattooed bar owner and a modern-day flower child have in common?Denver has been aware of Misty, the one and only florist in Eden's Ridge, since she showed up in town three years ago. Aware, and interested. But he's been busy--or so he tells himself. His bartender, Kennedy, has her suspicions. When Kennedy and her wedding planner cook up a matchmaking scheme to put Denver in Misty's orbit, Denver, a bar owner and tattooed biker, is surprised at how much he has in common with the modern-day flower child--including their mutual tendency to want to leave the past in the past and keep it private. But what will happen when Misty's private past is revealed, and clashes painfully with the things Denver has tried to put behind him?
