Maggie Wells is a deep-down dirty girl with a weakness for hot heroes and happy endings. By day she is buried in spreadsheets, but at night she pens tales of people tangling up the sheets. The product of a charming rogue and a shameless flirt, this mild-mannered married lady has a naughty streak a mile wide.
is the latest in a long line of feminist firebrands determined to break the mold at
Wolcott University. When her biological clock tells her it’s time to bust a move,
Avery does what she does best—she takes care of business all by herself.
Or, so she thinks….
Dominic Mann is happy with his life just as it is...
The widowed baseball coach is content and sees no point in changing his lineup
this late in the game. Still, a man would have to be dead not to notice a live wire
like Avery Preston. But a one night stand was all either of them wanted.
There’s only one complication...
The clinic where Avery was inseminated has been hacked. Now, she not only
knows who the father is, but she knows the father. In the biblical sense. Avery
shows up on Dom’s doorstep with a bun in the oven, a bellyful of ethical
righteousness, and the absolute conviction that she doesn’t need him. Soon,
the two of them are caught in a rundown between their hearts and their heads.
Marjorie Steel is still healing from the events of the past year, and she’s happy to put her plans to study culinary arts on hold to help her best friend deal with a difficult pregnancy and two recently adopted troubled boys. The fact that Bryce Simpson spends a lot of time at the Steel Ranch is a benefit, and she’s ready to see if her attraction to him might be something more.
Bryce wants to do a hard day’s work on the ranch. Once his muscles give out and he collapses from exhaustion, maybe he’ll stop torturing himself over his late father’s horrific double life. The Steels have a different idea. They ask Bryce to take an executive position complete with a profit share. As he has a young son and widowed mother to support, it’s an offer he can’t refuse. The only catch is Marjorie. She’s beautiful, smart, feisty, and her kisses set him on fire. But he’s an empty shell with nothing to offer her, and she deserves the world.
As the sins of his father continue to haunt him, Bryce learns the horrors of the past may not yet be buried.
