Nothing Goes as Planned When an Injured Cop Hires a Single Mom to Aid His Recovery AND, a Lucky Lady Discovers That Love and Billiards Have Much in Common in Dreams and Schemes, a Romantic Comedy from Marilyn Campbell

--Present Day, Florida--

Man with a Plan
Officer Jake Slaughter arrives home, exhausted after a double shift to discover an intruder in his bathroom. He draws his gun...on a young woman scrubbing his shower.
Kathy often wondered about the cop whose house she cleaned. She just hadn't imagined him naked or pointing a gun at her. But, when he offers her a job while he recovers from an injury, she accepts.
Though the physical attraction is mutual, their life plans are incompatible. Jake wants a stay-at-home wife, Kathy wants a career and is dead-set against marriage.
For Jake, persuading Kathy to marry him will require compromise, the one skill this street cop has never mastered.

Lucky Lady
Case Hardin didn't recognize the blonde. Clearly, she was no amateur pool player. So, what did she want from him?
Joey Duval was twelve when she met "Hard-Case" in the back room of her parents' pool hall. Stricken with puppy-love, she taught him her secret trick-shot in exchange for a favor.
Since then, the awkward girl became a beautiful woman and Case left the world of competitive pool behind. But Joey never forgot her interlude with the legendary shooter or his promise.
And now, thirteen years later, she's ready to collect.

Publisher Note: These two fun-filled, romantic comedies contain mild profanity and steamy sex that will be enjoyed by adult readers of sexy, humorous romance.

"Splashes of humor in this sometimes sweet, sometimes sexy romance make for a fun, fast read." ~Book Nook

"Marilyn Campbell stirs up a thoroughly entertaining, lighthearted story with plenty of steamy romance when she mixes the game of pool with a hot guy hiding from his past and an ambitious gal seeking revenge." ~Rendezvous Reviews

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe delivers another winner when small-town matchmakers decide a billionaire is the perfect man for a sassy single mom who is too busy for love. 


"This is one of my favorite Romance books EVER!" ~Amazon Reader Review


When single-mom Clare Gray delivers her famous cupcakes to the general store on her way to work, she meets a sexy, out-of-town businessman who is in need of lodging...and match-making locals decide her available-for-rent spare room is the perfect solution.  


After becoming a widowed single mom at eighteen, Clare traded her dreams of love to focus on raising her daughter. The last thing she wants is for a man to invade her life, even if he is deliciously tempting and wonderful with her daughter. But when late-night cupcake baking turns intimate, suddenly her heart is at risk once again.


High-powered executive Griffin Friesé is in town on a personal mission, and he has no time for love. But when he moves into Clare's farmhouse, he soon finds that life doesn't always give you want you want…but it might give you exactly what you need. Gradually, Clare's smile, her passion for life, and her small-town loyalty awaken something inside him, something that makes him yearn for a life, a love, and a family he's never had. 


Can a single mom find the love and family she always wanted with a man afraid to open his heart?  


"What do I wish for?" Clare looked up at the stars, at the way they lit up the sky. "That's what I wish for." She gestured to the expanse of twinkling darkness. "A love so huge and so powerful, that it sweeps across everything. It's always there. It's fuller than a heart can hold, so it spills out into the world and fills everything around it with more love. It's there when I fall asleep. It's there when I wake up." She met Griffin's gaze. "It's there every time I breathe in, every time I breathe out, and with every beat of my heart."


"Heartwarming doesn't even begin to describe this romance! Wow!" ~Vickie R. (Amazon Review)


"I can't say enough good things about this book. I couldn't stop reading once I started." ~Carla E. (Amazon Review)


"A testament to Stephanie Rowe's skill and talent, one that deserves applause... phenomenal... superbly developed." ~Bex 'N' Books

It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

35 year old Emily Mitchell has fled her job, apartment and ex-boyfriend in New York City for her father's historic, abandoned home on the coast of Maine, needing a change in her life and determined to make it a B&B. She had never expected, though, that her relationship with its caretaker, Daniel, would turn her life on its head.

Emily is still reeling from Daniel’s proposal. As all seems to finally fall into place in her life, she looks forward to an exciting engagement year ahead, from shopping for a venue and a wedding dress, to creating her invite list, to setting a date.

But all does not goes as planned. The endless events of the engagement year add more stress than joy, putting pressure on their relationship as they are forced to make hard choices. Adjusting to life as parents doesn’t make it any easier, as Chantelle runs into problems at school and as a custody battle looms over them. As Christmas and New Years approach, the stress is only compounded.

Meanwhile, as the B&B adds new guests and staff and as they find more priceless antiques, Emily discovers a shocking secret that just may bring her one step closer to finding her father.

Will she and Daniel get married? Or will the stress of the engagement break them apart forever?

IF ONLY FOREVER is book #4 in a dazzling new romance series that will make you laugh, cry, keep you turning pages late into the night—and make you fall in love with romance all over again.

Book #5 will be available soon.

“A very well written novel, describing the struggle of a woman (Emily) to find her true identity. The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”

--Books and Movies Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re For Now and Forever)

"For anyone who loves romantic suspense and time travel . . . you're in for a thrilling ride." ~Siren Book Reviews
