Begin your romantic adventure with sexy photographer Kole Graham, the hero of Treat with Caution, the first in the Treats to Tempt You series of sexy romances.

Both Tasha and Kole are confident their attraction is only physical. Both are going to get into trouble. But who will win the bet on Midsummer night?

Then immerse yourself in a deeply passionate affair with gorgeous Dr. Joss Heaven in Treat Her Right. 

Maisey does her best to resist the best-looking guy in the whole of New Zealand. But when the chocolate starts to melt on Joss’s warm body, it seems only polite to offer to lick it off… And that’s where the problems start.

Finish off your holiday fling with Stuart Casey, a passionate teacher with a dark secret.

Elle is more than happy to spend a few days showing gorgeous English teacher Stuart a few tricks of the trade to help him move on from his grief. But once she’s let the tiger out of his cage, it proves impossible to get him back in. And the new and improved Stuart isn’t letting her go without a fight.

Book 3: His Christmas Present

It’s supposed to be a time for miracles, but is Megan’s surprise Christmas present another betrayal Dion cannot forgive?

Megan Green fell in love with Dion Wallace when she was nine years old, but she hasn’t seen him since she was fifteen when he moved from New Zealand to the UK to be with his father. Meeting up with him in Prague eight years later is both a surprise and a relief when he rescues her during one of her panic attacks. On the rebound after a breakup, she turns to Dion for comfort and some hot sex, and he’s happy to oblige. But when the night ends, they’re both certain it’s the last time they’ll ever see each other.

A year later, however, Dion’s life is falling apart. 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. Angry and hurt by his dad’s betrayal, Dion books the first available flight to New Zealand, hoping a few weeks away might give him some perspective. And if he manages to hook up with Megan again while he’s there, he figures that might be the medicine he needs.

Megan’s brother—and Dion’s best mate when they were young—hasn’t told her Dion’s coming. It’s not clear who’s the most shocked when they finally meet. It’s supposed to be a time for miracles, but is Megan’s surprise Christmas present another betrayal Dion cannot forgive?

-- A USA TODAY Bestseller --
Cactus Creek's most romantic eligible bachelor, new-to-town and new-to-singlehood chocolatier Luke Bradford believes in old school romance, fighting wars waged over love, and deploying his dimples whenever an impossible-to-resist woman instigates it. But for once, this serial monogamist is trying not to platter up his heart to get stomped on for a change. That’s the plan, at least. Until he locks horns with the feisty beer-brewing beauty next door, that is. Soon, driving the woman sparking nuts becomes a wickedly fun priority he simply can’t get enough of.

In his defense, she’s addictively easy to incite…and plain impossible to resist.

Cactus Creek's award-winning brewmaster and town sweetheart Dani Dobson can’t believe how good her maddeningly distracting new neighbor is at pushing her buttons. It’s bad enough the unjustly gorgeous man comes locked and loaded with sexy flashing dimples and charm for days. But using all his chocolate-covered romantic idealism—not unlike the kind her heart’s been shattered by before—to start a chocolate vs. beer feud right in her backyard? The nerve of that man. Inexplicable, downright combustible chemistry between them or not, damn it, this means war.

At stake?  Very likely, her heart.

This is hands-down the most over-the-top of all my books (past, present, and future) in the sweet and mushy romantic department. A book about a brewmaster and chocolatier battling over Valentine's Day supremacy? Yeah, it was a given I was going to go all-out on the feel-good romance for this one. So be forewarned, this is *way* sweeter than all my other books (probably combined). If you're in the mood for a small town romance with lots of smiles and two stubbornly romantic characters who work hard for their happily ever after, this is the book for you! xoxo ♥

Love, Chocolate, and Beer [Luke & Dani]
Love, Diamonds, and Spades [Rylan & Quinn]
Love, Tussles, and Takedowns [Hudson & Lia]
Love, Exes, and Ohs [Isaac & Xoey]

All the Cactus Creek books are standalone novels with feel-good HEAs. :) Enjoy!
A wounded soldier needs her own hero…

Between the Sheets: Book 1

Carrying out the goals on someone else’s Bucket List might seem like an odd thing to do, but for Genie it’s the perfect way to honor her best friend, Ciara, who died in the bomb blast that blew up the Army truck carrying them both across Afghanistan. Genie’s come home to the Bay of Islands to rest her injured knee, and she hopes that by fulfilling Ciara’s list of wishes she can also heal the grief and guilt that goes deeper than her physical wound. Spending some time with Ciara’s gorgeous big brother just happens to be an added bonus.

Niall Brennan has always been attracted to Genie, but when he offers to join in with the Bucket List idea, he tells himself it’s purely out of a desire to pay homage to his sister. That’s fine when the first goal they pick at random is taking cooking lessons. It becomes less easy to hide his desire when they spend an afternoon on a nudist beach, and by the time they take part in the body painting event, Niall has no chance of keeping his desire a secret. Luckily, Genie reciprocates his feelings—a hundred and ten percent, and soon it’s not only the weather that turns hot and sultry.

Conscious that Niall’s mother, Sinead, blames Genie for her daughter’s death, they decide to keep their sizzling but brief fling just a secret between friends. But although Genie’s knee is on the mend, her emotional wounds refuse to heal. Sinead continues to refuse to forgive her, and even Ciara reaches out from beyond the grave to warn Genie against dating her big brother.

The final wish on Ciara’s Bucket List brings everything to a head. Genie knows she has to end the fling. But the heart wants what the heart wants, and besides, Niall has other ideas…

Warning: this sweet and sexy romance is best read with a fan on standby.
