"His name is Nick," I said. "He seems like a total gentleman, not to mention he's insanely gorgeous. Can I get permission to go on a date with him before he asks me out?"

Ben has been dating Lexi for almost eight months when she starts the conversation that challenges his idea of their... next logical step.

This is a short story (approximately 6,000 words).


MY REVIEW:

OMG!, this was just one of the funniest light hearted & lovable set of characters that I have read in a long time that just gripped you from the start. The story was short but the storyline was anything but. This author has something to be proud of here. This is an issue that engulfed a lot of couples & the way these two handle it was nothing short of wonderful. Got this for free but would have paid for it.

Bree has had enough of over-protective brothers and a meddling father, so she decides to run to a small town, where she can prove she can make it on her own. The only thing wrong with that situation is there’s a stalker after her, determined to make her his – or else end her life.

MY REVIEW:

Joesph & George have done it again they have married off another child. George's daughter Bree. I was wondering how it was going to play out personality wise since all the males are usually alpha males with spunky wives. So, the author just did the same thing but I think Chad being more secure in his…

MY REVIEW:

Oh how I love to read stories from this writer. Ok, the first book in this series I was able to read free. But the ones after I have bought myself mainly for her style of writing. She has a way of engulfing the read in the lives of the characters. Which ensures a roller coaster ride of emotions, events, & cast. This story a lone gives you this hunky cowboy as the love interest, the si…

When Judy Myers is offered a relaxing vacation to get away from her latest heartbreak, she can’t say no. A cruise on her brother’s yacht sounds like heaven...until she realises her brother’s best friend has been invited along for the ride.

Steven Stark is big, he’s loud, and he’s obviously not interested in the plump, plain little sister he used to tease unmercifully. In fact, he’s still quite happy to tease her – until she turns the tables on him. Now Steven can’t seem to keep his thoughts, or his hands, to himself. And worse, Judy’s not sure she can resist the attraction she’s kept buried for so many years.

Being trapped on a boat isn’t the best place to be, when you’re suddenly thrown a hunky curve ball.

MY REVIEW:

This book is so deceiving because you believe Steve is one way but he turns out totally different in the end. This short story is told mostly from Judy's point of view as BBW. She hits right on the money for the most part …

All Jamie Lassiter wants is to marry his best friend’s sister and settle down for the rest of his life in Chance Creek. He’s saved his money, bought into the Cruz Guest Ranch and he’s ready for that wedding, but Claire Cruz is nowhere to be found.

Claire’s too busy leaving Montana behind to care about cowboys or their wedding plans. She’s got plans of her own – a trip around the world. She’ll go as soon as she buys her tickets and she doesn’t care if she ever sees Chance Creek again.

Desperate to change Claire’s mind, Jamie proposes a bet: give him six weeks to convince her to marry him. If he can’t, he’ll pay for her round-the-world tickets himself.

Claire can wait six weeks if it means free tickets and a chance to get a little revenge on a man who once broke her heart. She’s got only one stipulation: Jamie can’t touch or flirt with her – or any other woman – while the bet is on.

Now Jamie’s on the run from a bevy of cowboy-groupie r…
