Experience is an asset.

That’s what Nina Fontaine’s best friend tells her when she moves from the suburbs to New York City following her divorce. As much as Nina appreciates the dating advice, she’s not interested. At forty-five, she’s spent the last fifteen years trying to fit in as a suburban wife. Now she just wants to settle into her new apartment, find a job that will stretch her savings, and figure out what the rest of her life is going to look like.

But that’s before she meets Liam McAlister.

A photojournalist who’s traveled the globe, Liam is gorgeous and smart — not to mention fifteen years younger than Nina.

And he isn’t the only man vying for Nina’s attention.

Rich and powerful, Jack Morgan is Liam’s polar opposite. In spite of Nina’s protests, Jack rolls out the big guns to court her, from black tie galas to last minute trips to Paris.

Both men are determined to win her. As they contribute to her reinvention in different way, Nina begins to walk a very unfamiliar tightrope. When their passion escalates to a shocking climax, Nina must accept that she may have fallen too hard, too soon — and make a decision that will change her life forever.

Get back here you stupid cow! Jess Lincoln just wasn't cut out for this! She's a city girl from New York, used to cafe lattes in the morning and swanky bar Manhattans at night. But here she was, running from her past and her ex-husband. So why did she run to a cattle ranch of all things? Did she think she could just throw on some pumps and walk out to milk the cows? Was there anyone out here that could help her?

Wyatt Wade knew his way around a ranch. His Bear Shifter Clan specialized in long distance travel of troubling species. Water buffalo, oxen and even flocks of ostrich: if it walked on this earth, they could herd it. But this fiery little city slicker that just moved into the ranch down the way was something else. She was all thorns and tangle weeds, but his primal instinct didn't care. She needed help, and he needed her.

This 13,000 word short story features a Happily Ever After, No Cliffhanger and lots of graphic primal hotness.

Adrian sighed and stared unseeing at the computer screen in front of her. She needed a two bedroom two bathroom apartment in the immediate future but the motivation was not with her at the moment.

This is not where she had pictured her life at thirty-three; starting over for herself and her almost-teenage daughter, Courtney, into an unforeseen future. She did not even know what sort of job she would be able to get, so she had no idea how much apartment she could afford.

Hopefully the divorce settlement would cover the basic expenses until she found employment. But who was hiring a stay-at-home mom with no experience? Not only had she lost her husband in the past two weeks, but she had also lost her best friend.

She did not really know anyone except for the parents of her daughter’s social circle, and she was too mortified to face any of them. She had no idea who knew about her husband’s affair and it was too soon to go around blabbing the truth of their situation.

She sighed again, and stood up, stretching her arms to release the kink in her neck. Courtney would be home from school in a couple of hours and she needed to have some sort of solution before then.

They should be over each other.

For two years, Olivia has served her ex-husband coffee at the diner where she works, and waited for her heart to catch up to her brain. Because they were divorced now, and for good reasons. He wasn’t ever going to change. He’d always be a cop first, a soldier second, and a husband third, when there was time.

Rafe didn’t believe in love at first sight until he met Olivia, and then he was a goner. They’d been too young, too reckless, but that hadn’t stopped him from bringing her home to Pine Harbour, where there was nothing for her to do while he saved the world.

Then it all fell apart. And now…

He never stopped loving his wife, but he let her go when it became clear he wasn’t what she needed.

She deserves more than a part-time lover who once broke her heart.

Rafe wants a second chance to prove he can be the man she wanted when they fell in love.

And Olivia still wants Rafe despite all the excellent reasons why she shouldn’t.

They should be over each other…but they aren’t.

Newly divorced, Melody ran away from a drugged out ex-husband and a controlling mother with little more than the clothes on her back. She needed a new home and a new job, not to mention a new life. Juniper Island, a thriving and posh hideaway known for its bustling summer tourism, held a promise to be exactly the change she needed. Without a second thought, Melody buys a one-way bus ticket.

Directed to the North Shore by the bus driver, she meets Tonac, the unusual chef and owner of Mayana, a restaurant tailored to serve the hard-working island locals. He gives his delicious meals away for free, but that’s not the strangest part; he doesn't serve people what they want, only what they need.

When Melody tastes the food for the first time, she finds out why the customers keep coming back, and it’s not just to eat for free or to be served by a rude waiter with no people skills. The food influences people in unique ways: sometimes it gives them visions, sometimes bravery, and in others it casts a new light into the darkest and faintest of memories -- whether they wanted to remember or not.

Knowing she can do better as a server than the crabby waiter, Melody applies for a job at this strange restaurant. Tonac takes her on, but under his care, she comes face-to-face with the secrets of what he really is and who (and what) else inhabits the island.

But not all of the residents of Juniper Island are happy with Tonac and his special meals. And when Melody gets caught up in the middle, it'll take more than a few spiced apple tarts or a bowl of pumpkin soup to uncover the deep and dark secrets that some inhabitants of Juniper Island want to keep buried.
