Fall in love with the wild, passionate, scandalous men, and the strong, confident women of this big family as they find lasting love in the quaint small town of Crown Creek. Each book is connected or can be read as a standalone.


She’s my best friend.

And she’s pregnant with my worst enemy’s baby.


I’ve always loved Claire King, and it’s always been my biggest secret. We are better as friends. We’ve always said this. And I try to believe it.


But now she’s pregnant from a one-night stand with the biggest a**h*le in town.


She needs me now. As a friend.


That’s it. That’s all.


No kissing, no cuddling, no getting emotional at sonograms. No killing the guy who knocked her up. It’s not my baby...but damn, I wish it was.


The more she needs me, the harder I fall.

But I can never let her know my true feelings, or I’ll lose her forever. 


I’ll get her through this if it’s the last thing I do. And I will NOT let my secret slip. Ever. Or else.

Cooper Grant is not my type. Yes, he’s drool-worthy, with that glint in his blue eyes and the jaw-dropping way he fills out his jeans. Yes, other women might fall all over themselves for a glimpse of his slow, crooked smile. I’m not other women.

He hates me. And the feeling is mutual.

In a town as small as ours, it’s pretty hard to avoid him...and it’s completely impossible once I wake up in a hospital bed to find Cooper pacing the floor of my room.

He’s rumpled. He’s frantic. And he’s swearing I’m his fiancee.

What the hell?

I hate him, but he saved my life. So when he asks me to lie and pretend we’re engaged, I have no choice but to play along. One moment we’re fighting like usual, the next moment he’s kissing me and slipping a gorgeous ring onto my finger. It’s enough to give me whiplash… again.

And maybe it’s the bump on my head, but it’s getting pretty easy to pretend I’m in love with him.

Now, instead of avoiding him, I’m surrendering to his crushing kisses. Our fiery hatred for each other isn’t nearly as hot as the nights we spend entwined.
The engagement is fake. The love is pretend.

But the way I ache for him is real.

And now I want to know… Can your worst enemy be your best lover?

Gabe King is the wrong brother.


I grew up in the shadow of the Kings. Literally. Their house is on the hill above mine. So I always had my eyes on our town’s most famous residents. Especially the cute oldest brother. My crush on him was so bad I could barely get two words out in his presence. When he came over to ask for help only I could give, I thought my knees might give out.


Then I found out he needed help with his brother.

Gabriel King. The bad boy. The risk-taker. The total jerk. He’s laid up after an accident that nearly took his life. And he needs a nurse.

I am a nurse.


Pretty cut-and-dried, right?


I help him heal while ignoring the way his body feels under my hands. I remember his meds while forgetting the way his kisses bruise my mouth.


I’m a professional. I can handle his hazel eyes and ripped body. But his smile? And the way he breaks down all my defenses one by one?


He’s not the brother I wanted. And he’s my patient. But the more time I spend with Gabe, the more I want to take a risk. The more I want to think I was wrong.


Gabe might be the wrong brother but he’s the right one for me.

A New York Times bestseller!

The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... 


I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .


Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy and should be read after Ruthless King. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.

I met Finn King the day my world turned upside down. 

My life hasn’t exactly been easy, but I could always count on two universal truths: Music is my passion, and I'm Daddy’s little girl. 

When my Dad died, my world was rocked.
When I went to his funeral and found he was not the man I knew… it was shattered.

That’s when Finn stepped in to pick up the pieces. 

What started as a desperate fling with the worst man imaginable became a friendship built on slow trust. The mystery of why one of the famous King brothers is hiding away from the world doesn’t seem so strange as long as I am the one hiding in his arms. 

But even as we both try to heal the wounds we’ve caused, my father’s secrets are knocking at our door.
Finn may be able to protect me from my past. 

If I can protect him from himself.
