When it comes to love,
Only the heart knows for sure...
New York reporter Eve Parker is done with being a bridesmaid and ready to become a Wild West Bride. When her editorial director sends her to Wyoming to write an article on a new matchmaking service, Eve's prepared to go under cover. Little does she suspect she'll wind up under the covers with an ultra sexy cowboy. Ted Walker is handsome and charming, and oh so easy to kiss. So easy, in fact, Eve nearly forgets he's the subject of her story. When she reveals the truth, will Ted still be willing to confide? Eve's soon to learn she's not the only one keeping secrets.
A short contemporary romance with moderate heat, approximately 50,000 words.
Ted Walker calls Jackson Hole home. He's got wide open spaces, room to ride, and a dependable place to hang his hat. He's got a booming business besides. With males outnumbering females in these parts, he and his buddy Brian have developed foolproof algorithms for predicting ideal couples. All they have to do is sign up for a week of Wild West Brides adventures, and let the mountain air and moonlight do the rest. When one of Ted's "grooms" goes missing, it's only natural for Ted to fill in. It's just for the week, and he's never mixed business with pleasure. That was before a stunning redhead came to town. Now Ted finds his interest in Eve is more than strictly professional. But how can he be sure her summer loving is for real?

THE HOLIDAY BRIDE
Santa knows best...
Waitress Lucy West is down on her luck at the diner. A fan of late-night television reruns, she's always dreamed of a nineteen-fifties style happily ever after. But, in reality, she's opted to settle. Barely scraping by on her meager salary and tired of going it alone, she figures marrying affable, yet distractible, Mitch as making the right move. Little does she know that Christmastime--and Santa--have other plans in store...
Bachelor dad William Kinkaid has his hands full with a young teenage son and a five-year-old daughter. Since losing his wife to cancer three years before, William's worked hard to keep things as upbeat and normal for the family as possible. After his child makes a special Christmas wish, William's stunned to awaken Christmas morning to find a beautiful blonde on the sofa. The woman can't remember a thing, and his kid thinks Santa brought her. Can William solve the mystery about who she really is, without giving away his heart?
THE HOLIDAY BRIDE...
William cinched the tie on his robe and paused at the bend in the stairs. Carmella raced down the steps ahead of him, dashing to the large beige sofa facing the fireplace. Two stockings brimming with goodies hung from the mantel.
"Oh boy, oh boy!" she cried, springing on her heels in a happy dance. Justin appeared on the landing beside his dad.
"What is it, fuzz brain?" he asked with a yawn.
Carmella looked up at them, her cheeks aglow. William had never seen her so excited. "He did it! Santa really did it!"
William descended the stairs feeling pleased with himself. He did know a thing or two about fathering, after all. "Well? Is it what you wanted?"
"Boy, is it ever," Carmella said with a happy gasp.
William strode around the sofa, feeling smug. Then, suddenly, he halted, nearly tumbling over the coffee table.
"Wow," Justin said, gazing straight ahead of him.
William stared in shock at the lovely blonde on the sofa who was clutching Carmella's teddy bear! She didn't look much over thirty, and was very reasonably put together.
The woman opened her eyes with a start and tried to sit, before quickly lying back down. "Where am I?" she asked with a pitiful moan.
"Don't you know?" Carmella asked, taking her hand. "Santa brought you home!"
She pushed herself upright, grasping the back of the sofa. "Home?"
"You're our new mommy!"
A sweet, traditional PG-rated romantic comedy.
Standard novella-length, approximately 28,000 words.

THE SOMETIME BRIDE
A jilted bride cuts a deal with a perpetual bachelor.
"What are you doing? I wanted to stay and enjoy the party!"
"I know you did, sweetheart," David said, bending low to grab her behind her knees. "But I've got a party of my own in mind."
"Hey, whoa!" she squealed, as he hoisted her skyward and threw her over his shoulder.
"David Lake, put me down!" she yelled, pounding his rear with her fists.
But he just pushed back the door and carried her into the night, where the December wind half froze her bare skin and sobered her up in a hurry.
"Who are you?" she asked, still hanging upside down.
"Just call me Fabio," he said, patting her bottom with a smile.
THE SOMETIME BRIDE...

Wholly and unconditionally drawn straight into Mike's warmth. They couldn't have been more connected had they been in bed together. Or maybe they were, and she was dreaming.
Mike reached up and stroked her hair, causing her to melt into him another inch. He'd never peel her off now. Carrie couldn't even say where Mike ended and she began. The only thing she knew for certain was that she never wanted this feeling to stop.
