PUCKER UP: BOOK I
His name is Ozzie. He’s the college hockey star every girl wants a piece of, and who every guy wants to be.
Every girl except me. The only thing I want from him is enough details to write a story for my college paper.
But he hates reporters almost as much as I hate jocks. So, I approach him carefully, not expecting to feel anything for him. But his charm is more powerful than I imagined. For a girl who was once a loser in high school, I like the way he makes me feel and I want to feel it some more. So I lie about who I am. When I finally decide to tell him the truth, it’s too late. My lie threatens to expose his darkest secrets and also break my heart.
THE GOON: BOOK II
"I suppose I could have pleaded temporary insanity in court. The judge might have believed me-she may have even sympathized with me. But I didn't do that. I might have, had there not been a curve ball to my crime."
After catching her boyfriend cheating, Emily lashes out and gets thrown in jail. She's sentenced to help a police officer teach at-risk kids how to skate. But Emily hasn't been on skates since she was five, leading her to take lessons to prepare. Hockey enforcer Michael, otherwise known as The Goon, is not what she expected. He's patient, charming and someone she genuinely likes. So, when she discovers the girl he's dating is the same girl her ex was cheating with, she's left with the task of telling Michael. Their connection bonds them. But being each other's rebound isn't a good way to start a relationship. And if that were their only problem they might have a shot, but there's more to their stories than meets the eye.
Jax and I used to be best friends right up until he broke my heart. Everyone knows that both Jax and his overinflated ego are well beyond naughty—that face, those eyes, don’t get me started on that body made of steel. Every last part of me is bent on revenge. I’ll make sure payback is hell for Jax. I just hope I don’t end up getting my heart crushed by him twice in one lifetime.
Jax and I were inseparable growing up—since then our careers buffered us, but our mothers are still very much best friends. They’ve spent their whole lives trying to push us together—not to mention humiliating us by way of popping up at dances and doing the Macarena, showing up at football games wearing little more than curlers and bathrobes. Mortifying us to their own delight was their specialty. That might be ancient history, but we still bear the scars. So, when I pop back into town, Jax and I devise a scheme of our own to prank the pranksters. We’ll pretend we’re the real deal, right up until the day of our mothers’ shared big birthday bash, and then we’ll pull the pin on this faux-couples grenade.
Not only will we get even with our meddlesome mothers, but I’ll get to exact a little revenge on the boy who split my heart in two. Yes, I will most certainly get even—and just maybe a little bit naughty.
With Jax Stade around, naughty is inevitable.

(A friends to lovers romance)
New Year’s Eve. The most over-rated night of the year, right? I have to get through a night of enforced fun, drink all the prosecco and talk about new beginnings. But I don’t want new beginnings. I want my old beginning back.
It’s been ten days, two hours and forty-three minutes since Tansy got dumped. Two heartbreaking weeks since Renzo, who made her weak at the knees and dizzy with excitement, found out Tansy’s secret – and ended it on the spot.
Since then, she’s spent every evening scrolling through their old photos, drunk texted him twenty-six times (he stopped reading after five), and lost count of how many packets of Kleenex she’s cried her way through.
That’s where Operation Get Renzo Back comes in. She ropes in a new wing-woman, maxes out her credit card and accidentally-on-purpose bumps into him at every opportunity. Oh, and she finds a fake boyfriend, as you do…
But while she’s busy pretending, Tansy’s plan is thrown a major curveball. She has to learn the hard way that it’s not her, it’s him – and that sometimes, a break-up can end up being the making of you.
A fresh, funny and fabulous novel for anyone who has been dumped, got a post-break-up haircut, stalked an ex on Facebook, and then realised they were WAY better off without them. Fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Matt Dunn will love this laugh-out-loud read.

Or at least, 42 yr old James Gallagher says he's married, even though Lauren has never seen a wife.

When Ethan left to pursue professional hockey I had to make a clean break. I couldn’t wait for him to find someone better, couldn’t wait for him to break my heart. It’s better to leave than be left. But now he’s back, and I can't run from him anymore.
Worse…he won't let me.
Ethan: Annie Fraser owned me as a kid. She owns me still. When I got my first contract to play professional hockey I asked her to come with me, but she wouldn’t leave Rawdon, not while her grandmother was sick. I understood. Still, I wanted to stay together, do whatever I could to keep her.
But she wanted to run. I loved her enough to let her.
Now I’m back in town and I’m still pissed. I think I hate her. I’m sure of it. Until I see her… and those old feelings come rushing back. I won’t let her walk away again. I don’t care what it takes.
