When love comes calling, never say never… 

What’s a guy to do when a damsel in distress lands at his door on Christmas Eve? Dr. Alex Cortes doesn’t want company this particular holiday, especially after the life-changing event that shook his resolutions. Seeking time alone to sort things out, the last thing he needs is a distraction like blonde beauty Georgiana Kincaid. 

Georgie had planned for a picture-perfect Christmas Eve with a gorgeous holiday dress and a lavish celebration dinner with her boyfriend. But when he unexpectedly dumps her, she has nowhere to go. After driving for hours, her car stalls out in front of handsome exotic Dr. Alex Cortes' beachfront home in the midst of a rainstorm. 

Will bad boy billionaire Alex let optimistic Georgie weave her magic? Or will he run when he finds out her true Christmas wish? It might take a Christmas miracle for love to win…

Nine Drops of Love

Tasha, a young American woman from a Dominican background is madly in love with Alex. Good looking with blue eyes and a dimple in his chin, Alex seems smitten with Sasha, a seductress who is everything Tasha is not. Desperate to make Alex fall in love with her in time for Christmas, Tasha browses in an odd bookstore in Williamsburg.

The proprietor, a strange old woman with long orange hair hands her a recipe for a love potion. Is Tasha naïve to believe this might actually be magic? Despite warnings that the old woman may be a demon, Tasha tries to get all the ingredients of this unusual recipe. With the aid of her good friend James, she manages to put it all together with the exception of one unusual ingredient. But even if she succeeds in adding the final element, can she administer the dose of nine drops on nine separate days? And if she does, what will happen?

Northern Magic

When Santa asks his worker, Olja, to help make another elf’s Christmas wish come true, she believes the job calls for a love potion.

Elf Runi’s in the business of guiding Santa’s sleigh and making other people’s wishes come true. This year he’s dared make a wish of his own, one from the heart. When he meets Olja, he hopes he’s found his forever. But it will take assistance from a reindeer, a generous helping of love and a whole lot of magic to make his wish come true. That is, if Olja and Runi can just outwit the three troublesome trolls who decide they’d make a fine winter’s snack.

Love Potion Number Nine

Ellie thinks she’s past being jilted but in the four years since she hasn’t dated a soul. Now, Shelley, her best friend convinces her into buying a mysterious love potion which promises to change her life, but she attracts the wrong sort of attention including the man who broke her heart.

Josh, a man with all the quantities she’s been looking for, appears but with her heart still bruised, she becomes convinced he is following her. When he turns up at her home, she threatens him with the police, but will his connections to her sister’s fiancé compromise her reputation?

Upon meeting Josh, she is left dumbfounded by his good looks but is he the man destined to be her one and only?

‘He had the coolest gray eyes I’d ever seen, surrounded by thick lashes and dark eyebrows. His black hair fell messily around his gorgeous face, partially concealing the deep-set frown creasing his brow. He looked angry, defiant and adorable all at the same time.’

Can she learn to love again, or will her past forever doom her future?

Renting out the apartment over his garage shouldn’t be a life-changing decision, but when Delta soldier Cormac “Fletch” Fletcher meets Emily Grant, he feels an instant connection. He can’t stand the thought of Emily and her young daughter living anywhere unsafe. Offering cheap rent is a small price to pay for their safety...and Fletch’s peace of mind.

Being a single mother is difficult at best, but renting the extremely affordable space from Fletch makes Emily’s life a lot easier...until it doesn’t. Suddenly all the money she’s saving thanks to Fletch’s generosity is going into the hands of a blackmailer. And what little food Emily can afford goes to her daughter Annie, so the girl doesn’t go to bed hungry...leaving Emily weaker and weaker.

When miscommunication has Emily assuming Fletch is in on the blackmail, he not only has to gain her trust, but also deal with a man holding a grudge against Fletch and his entire Delta Force team. A task made more difficult when the dangerous man gets his hands on Emily and Annie...

** Rescuing Emily is the 2nd book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
