Book 2: Tempting Autumn
For most of his life, Hitch has put his family’s needs before his own. Finally able to pursue his career as a nature photographer and travel the world, he’s determined to make the most of his freedom. And then he discovers that one of his best friends needs help.
Fashion designer Rowan thought she’d accepted that marriage and babies would never be a part of her life, but when her muse abandons her she realizes she hasn’t come to terms with it at all. Lonely and miserable, she accepts Hitch’s tempting offer of an autumn adventure in the hope that maybe, in the peace of the mountains, she’ll find the answers she needs.
A city girl to the core, she’s never been camping in her life, and what seemed like a great idea soon threatens to turn into a disaster. But in spite of the blisters, insects, and geckos, it’s not all bad. It turns out that their friendship is only a thin veneer covering a deep attraction to one another, and in the isolated cabin it’s not long before the cold mountain air turns sizzling hot.
The time they spend together suggests that with the right man the future she yearns for is a possibility. Hitch has shown her the path to love, but she discovers she doesn’t want to walk down it with anyone else. The problem is, does Hitch feel the same way?
Warning: this is a forced proximity story. If it makes you nervous to think about being stranded in a secluded mountain hut with a gorgeous guy who’s looking at you the way a tiger looks at his lunch, maybe you should buy another book.

After a decade of hard work, he thought he was next in line to be CEO of the family company, but his father surprises everyone by giving the job to one of his half-brothers.

When a CEO falls in love with her PA, it can only lead to trouble…
Callie Summer, CEO of The Four Seasons lingerie business, is in shock. She’d expected her new PA to be a middle-aged frump, but Jean turns out to be Gene, and he’s neither middle-aged, nor anything like a frump. When the gorgeous Bond-lookalike insists he’ll be the perfect companion on her business trip around the country, Callie agrees to give him a trial. Having recently found her ex in bed with another woman, she’s not looking for love. But a little bit of private lusting never did anyone any harm.
Once a military journalist with the New Zealand Army, Gene now runs his own security firm. Hired by Callie’s mother, Phoebe, to secretly protect her daughter after Phoebe receives death threats against her family, Gene finds his work cut out for him. Callie’s as delectable as she is infuriating, and his urge to seduce her fights with his duty to keep her safe.
It’s not long before they give in to their passion, and the weather isn’t the only thing that turns hot and sultry as they travel further north. But Gene can’t keep his identity a secret from Callie forever. And when an attempt is finally made on her life, the truth threatens to break them apart.
Warning: it grows hotter and hotter as they travel north through the country. So does the weather.

A girl can have just one night of fun, right? After years in a spirit-breaking former marriage, Evie needed to get her groove back.

Liam knows showing up on her doorstep might throw Evie for a loop. But Wardham’s his new home now, and he just can’t get the sexy single mother out of his mind. A second date isn’t to much to ask, is it? Or a third, and a fourth!
It’s not what they expected. But it might turn out to be just what they need.
Life has a funny way of throwing curveballs, though. Just when things are finally going right for Evie, two little lines on a pregnancy test change everything. Now she’s running scared, and Liam has to pull out all the stops to prove a family with her is everything he’s ever wanted.
