When a couch potato inherits a fitnesswear company in San Francisco, sparks fly with her arrogant, Olympic medalist vice president.

The world of fitness apparel isn't ready for Beverly Lewis. She hates the gym, is nice to everybody, and shops at Ross Dress for Less. When she's not teaching preschool, she's wearing yoga pants . . . to nap in. So when she inherits her estranged grandfather's fitnesswear company in San Francisco, nobody expects her to keep it. Fite Fitness needs a heartless suit to save it from bankruptcy, not a thirty-year-old woman who cries when her students leave for kindergarten.

Someone like Liam Johnson. A former Olympic swimmer, Liam is Fite's executive vice president. Unlike Bev, he's devoted his life to Fite's success. Managing one little preschool teacher--and his attraction to her--shouldn't be an issue. Right?

But Bev's tired of being underpaid and underrated, and refuses to step aside as an obedient figurehead. To everyone's shock and horror, she moves up to San Francisco, sets up an office, and dives into the business. Nothing--not mockery, not exercise, not sabotage, not a disastrously hot night with her aggravating VP--is going to scare her away.
As Liam realizes she's tougher than she looks, he discovers that losing Fite might not be nearly as bad as losing her . . .

A story about the pursuit of love, happiness, and the perfect yoga pants, Love Handles will speak to anyone who's ever had to face what scares her most.

Warning: contains at least two loves scenes and a happy ending.

Charlie Davies has never solved a murder before - or committed one, although it might have crossed her mind. Especially when it comes to James McKenzie.

When rich boy James is accused of killing his billionaire uncle, he bets Charlie twenty grand that she can't find the real culprit, and she simply can't resist. The money, that is - she has no trouble resisting him, no matter how symmetrical his stupid face is.

What James doesn't know is that Charlie has an advantage: she's just begun working at a private investigation company. OK, so she's the receptionist, but it's a start, right?

What Charlie doesn't know is, well, a lot. But she'd better learn fast, or James will win the bet. As Charlie investigates, things get more and more dangerous. She needs to find the murderer soon, or it won't just be her money and reputation on the line...

She might lose her head.

A hilarious sleuthing series for anyone who loves to laugh out loud on their crime-solving adventures. If you enjoy chick-lit murder mysteries with a snarky heroine, give Charlie Davies a try!

Enemies turn to lovers in this bad boy billionaire romance with a twist.

I had a plan.

Finish law school. Start a job. Stay away from men like Brandon Sterling. Cocky, overbearing, and richer than the Earth, he thinks the world belongs to him, and that includes me.

Yeah, no. Think again.

It doesn’t matter that his blue eyes look straight into my soul, or that his touch melts my icy reserve. It doesn’t even matter that past all that swagger, there’s a beautiful, damaged man who has so much to offer beyond private planes and jewelry boxes.

But I had a plan: no falling in love.

I just have to convince myself.

A fierce bounty hunter. An outlaw on the run. A love that transcends it all.

After three years on the run, the notorious bounty hunter Tyler Calhoun catches up with the elusive lady outlaw, Nicky Malloy. The intensity of their dislike for each other is only matched by the burgeoning passion they can't control.

Pursued and hunted themselves, Nicky and Tyler are forced to turn to each other for aid, trust, and comfort as their journey progresses to an inevitable end.

Caught in a murky world of lies, they hold on to each other as they travel to Wyoming to confront the man that brought them together. Tyler has to decide if his love for Nicky is worth more than the bounty he was sent to find.

He's everything she never wanted in a man--too bad she's married to him.

One month. That's how long Aussie native, Piper, has to find a husband if she wants to stay in the States and keep her newly booming food truck business running. But if this feisty, independent entrepreneur hasn't found a man she could stand to marry after years of dating, how is she supposed to conjure a groom in a month?

Enter ambitious lawyer, Aaron. His firm has made it clear that he'll be fast-tracked to partner if he can settle down and give up his playboy bachelor ways. The marriage deal he strikes with Piper is a no-brainer. A win-win...but only if they can keep it strictly business. That should be a piece of cake considering the only thing they have in common is their mutual need for a spouse. But keeping this a relationship in name only is easier said than done when the heat between them is rising faster than the pies in Piper’s kitchen.

The line between true love and a fake relationship blurs with every kiss. Can these bickering newlyweds find their way past the lies and deception to a real romance?

This is the first book in The Upper Crust Series. All books in the series can be read as stand alone stories but it's lots of fun to revisit the characters in subsequent books.

This wicked billionaire will do anything to get what he wants...and he's not afraid to play dirty.

Lily Frazer would do anything to save the Frazer Center for the Arts--even take on the infamous billionaire Calder Cunningham. When Lily breaks onto the Cunningham estate, she only wants to find and reason with Calder. (All right, all right, she wants to punch him in the face, too, but that's Plan B.) As it turns out, the arrogant billionaire is willing to give her the money he promised, but there's a catch: she must win it from him.

And the games he has in mind aren't exactly...innocent.

Lily isn't about to give up the money without a fight (or let some haughty bastard seduce her), but she quickly discovers that there might be more to the brooding Calder than she initially perceived. As their games of cat and mouse become increasingly intense, she suddenly finds herself confused by her own emotions. Can she deny her attraction long enough to win the money she needs?
