From buttoned-up office help to sexy lingerie model!
Martha Jane can’t say no. Tonight’s lingerie show can make or break her best friend’s brand new line, and the model got sick at the last minute.
Transformed into a bombshell…
The quiet, unemployed administrative assistant walks the runway in an array of fantasy lingerie, grateful that each outfit has its own elaborate mask.
The line is a hit, and Martha Jane is relieved the show is nearly over, until, on her final pass, she falls off the stage on and into the arms of Richard Gable.
Her former boss.
The man she’s been secretly in love with for years.
The man who fired her and gave her job to one his brainless bimbos.
The Mask She Wears…
He doesn’t recognize her behind the mask. And then she realizes…he’s hitting on her.
Of course he’s hitting on her. A lingerie model is exactly his type. In all the time she worked for him, Richard never looked at her the way he’s looking at her now.
Does she have the nerve?
Martha Jane makes a split second decision to take a walk on the wild side. She’s pretty sure she can protect her identity.
But it’s not as easy to protect her heart.
This is a novella or short novel, part of Maggie Shayne’s Fun-Size Reads collection.
A heartwarming, tear-inducing, holiday miracle kind of story you’ll never forget...
All Tyler wants for Christmas is a Mommy.
Not to walk without his crutches, or to skip his next surgery. Just a mommy.
His father, Chicago Cop Jimmy Corona is determined to find him one in his hometown of Big Falls Oklahoma. But trouble follows him there, trouble that could get them both killed.
Once shy and awkward, Kara Brand has blossomed into a graceful beauty with the biggest heart in the state of Oklahoma. Jimmy thinks she’s the perfect mommy-candidate, and she falls in love with little Ty at first sight.
Jimmy plans to win her and wed her, not to love her. But he never intended for her to get caught in between a murderous criminal and his little boy.
When strange and exotic little Brand sister, Selene, is out by the falls, dancing half naked with her fellow rebellious tree worshipping types, a stranger stumbles out of the woods and falls at her feet. He’s been stabbed. And when he opens his eyes, all he sees is a topless wood-nymph holding a dagger. When she bends close and asks his name, he realizes that he doesn’t know the answer.
Someone is trying to kill Cory Falconer because he knows something he can’t remember. And the only person on his side is a witchy little vegetarian who’s running away for her own reasons.
Sensual romance. Approximately 71,000 words
