He’s hiding inner demons that drove him away from town. She’s sworn off bad boys. Their passion erupts while trapped in a snow storm, but will she ever see him again? 


Dr. John “Butch” Daniels climbed on his bike and sped out of Oak Grove several months ago with demons on his tail. He’s ready to come home and pick back up where his life left off, but have the demons left him behind? A blizzard has him stuck in what used to be his favorite motorcycle club, and the sweet and spunky bartender is getting under his leather-clad skin. 


Carla Rogers is a loner, not able to hold on to the ones she loves. She’s sworn off bad-boys after a recent ex dumped her in Oak Grove. The owner of motorcycle club turned bar and grill offers her a lifeline in the form of a job and place to live. Her life is turning around. But there’s something about the bearded stranger who turns up late one night while a snowstorm rages outside. 


When passion flares, the two are forced to confront their darkest fears: Does Carla dare to trust a reckless biker with her heart? Can Butch risk caring for someone when life has no guarantees? This might be their Last Call for love.

A Midnight Clear

Annapolis, Maryland, 1948

Frances Dumfries is the perfect admiral's daughter. She runs the household, hosts the parties, and never falls for the midshipmen surrounding her. Having fun or putting herself first is definitely not on her schedule. And she doesn't want anyone—particularly not a man too handsome and kind for his own good—to point that out.

Midshipman Joe Reynolds sympathizes: Ever since he tumbled headlong into love with Frances, life hasn't been much fun. With only so much time until he ships out from the Naval Academy, he’s racing the clock, and her refusal to give him a second look, to secure her affection. But this sailor isn’t surrendering in the campaign to win her heart.

Torn between duty and selfishness, it will take a Christmas miracle to show Frances and Joe that love is rare, precious… and worth fighting for.

(A Midnight Clear was previously published as a standalone title.)

A Midnight Kiss

Huntsville, Alabama, 1950

New Year’s Eve is a night for old friends, new hopes, and champagne dreams—and Betty Parrish intends to take full advantage. But when her long-term beau makes one too many arrogant comments, she throws him out. After all, who needs men?

Greg Henkins’s New Year’s plans involve tools and engines, not dances and debutantes. But when the vivacious Betty runs into him, his night ends up head over heels. After all, who could resist a midnight kiss?

Greg and Betty are intoxicated by what they share at midnight, but will their budding relationship wilt in the sober light of morning?
