The Daddy Pact

The Coach's Boys

Book 1
Kristy K. James
8

A murdered groom. An unexpected baby. A vengeful father. Can the killer’s brother save the day?

Raised in foster homes, when Jess Bentley promised, ‘til death do us part,’ she envisioned many happy decades building a family with Frank. But a desperate drug addict in a dark parking lot ended those dreams before the honeymoon was over. Convinced the empty place in her heart will never heal, she’s ready to give up—until she discovers their brief marriage resulted in a surprise pregnancy.

All Dan Mulholland wants following his brother’s arrest is to relieve the guilt that’s tearing him up inside. He is determined to help the widowed bride in any way he can, especially when he learns she’s carrying her dead husband’s child … and her wealthy father-in-law intends to take the baby.

First in the Coach’s Boys series, The Daddy Pact is a sweet, poignant romance about love lost and new, unexpected beginnings. It’s a heartwarming story of selflessness in the face of tragedy, friendships, and laughter—with a little mystery thrown in for good measure.

Welcome to Charlotte, hometown of the Coach’s Boys romance series. Settle back, put your feet up, and enjoy your visit. Who knows? You may want to stay for a while. Or forever.

Welcome to Charlotte, hometown of the Coach’s Boys romance series. Settle back, put your feet up, and enjoy your visit. Who knows? You may want to stay for a while. Or forever because nothing is sweeter than small town romance.

With so many depending on her, she has no time for a personal life...
When her husband left her pregnant, with a four-year-old child and a restaurant on the verge of bankruptcy, the only things Holly McGinty had time for were her kids - and working hard to stay out of the poor house. Five years later, business is booming and her boys are happy, but she's still putting her own needs at the bottom of her priority list. That doesn't stop her from daydreaming about her oldest son's sexy scout leader though.

He never believed in love at first sight - until he met her...
Sam Jensen gets along great with kids, is a successful architect, and has the best friends a guy could ask for. But figuring out relationships with women has never come easy to him. He feels like a tongue-tied teenager around most of them. Except for Holly, and it's looking like things might work out with her. As long as one tiny little secret remains a secret.

If you like clean and wholesome romance, you might just love the Coach's Boys Series! With the exception of Darby's Dilemma (a special edition short story) – each book focuses on one couple and is complete from start to finish.

In her opinion, there's a big difference between lying and not telling the whole truth. 
...but when Harry Saunders chose to use her nickname on a resume, she knew anyone reading it would assume she was a man. But that was fine by her - as long as it meant getting the job. She needed the benefits for her sick little boy, and no matter how much one of her bosses hated her for not being entirely honest, she wasn't going to back down and quit.

Women had their place - and it wasn't working construction... 
The moment Chris Parker realized they'd been duped, he tried in vain to find a loophole so he could fire Harriet. But just because they're stuck with her doesn't mean he has to like it, and he will never give up hope that she'll give him a reason to get rid of her. Until the day he discovers that she has a very ill son. A son who develops an instant case of hero worship for Chris.

Sometimes, life can be a little rough…
And no one knows more about that than Detective Ed Winslow. But just because the mystery of his stalker has been solved doesn’t mean everything is all sunshine and rainbows now. The question is, will things ever settle down enough so he can make more permanent arrangements with the love of his life? Or will there always be something else to stand in their way?

How long, exactly, is a girl supposed to wait…
Jenna Taggert is nothing if not patient. In nearly three years, she’d never once considered walking away, not even after being kidnapped by the person whose only goal in life was to kill the man of her dreams. By his side is the only place she wants to be. Still, she can’t help but hope that, one day, they might make a life together.

Someone wants him dead. She just wants a vacation.

From the author of the popular Coach’s Boys series comes A Prince on the Run, The Casteloria Royals, A Royal Sweethearts Romance Novel, Book 1

Cameron Rafferty is keeping secrets. Dangerous secrets that could endanger the lives of everyone around him. His plan was simple...keep a low profile until the would-be-killer was found. And things were going smoothly, until a small complication changed everything. Soon, he finds himself becoming more involved with the family next door—and wishing for things he shouldn't. Things that will put their lives in jeopardy, too.

Spending summers at the chalet was a tradition for author Laura Keane and her young son. Filled with memories of the husband she lost to war, she looked forward to days spent reminiscing, playing, and plotting another novel. She didn't expect this year to be any different— but that was before their handsome neighbor came to her rescue like a knight in shining armor. Will that armor be tarnished when she discovers who he is and why he's hiding out in northern Michigan?

If you like your romance novels served up with a little suspense and mystery, humor, and an interesting mix of supporting characters, you just might love Kristy K. James’ modern day fairytale. 

Join Cameron and Laura as they discover that while Bois Blanc Island is the perfect place for fun-filled summer days and relaxing evenings—it might be an even better place to fall in love again. As long as the wrong people don’t find them first.

Filled with romance, intrigue, secrets, and maybe even some danger, all Royal Sweethearts Romance novels are complete with no cliffhanger endings.
