They say patience is a virtue. (Yeah, right.)Timing is everything. (Sure thing.) All good things come to those who wait. (Really?) If that’s the case, how long does a guy wait for the girl before he becomes a chump? I’ve been best friends with Ellie Green since we were on the high school swim team and I was dating her best friend. A lot has changed since then, except now I’m in love with my best friend. I started seeing Ellie differently in college, but the timing was never right between us. For years I’ve stayed neatly stowed in the friend zone. Until this summer...
I was stuck in a dead-end job, with a creep of a boss and in the midst of a quarter-life crisis. So, when members of my former sorority initiated a resolution pact for the new year, I jumped right on that. My resolution was to break out of the shackles of my boring and safe life and do something bold and daring. But I had no idea how to do that…until he came along.

If you like short (and I mean, short) and sexy romances, I have some quickies for you. I’ve teamed up with a wonderful list of Best Selling and indie-published contemporary romance authors to offer short standalone books all written with connecting themes.
For example, our Halloween Honeys are all set in a fictional college sorority. And our Thanksgiving stories were all set around a Thanksgiving feast. And there’s new ones coming for Christmas, New Years and lots more in the New Year!
Here are two of my latest releases and contributions to this collaborative group listing. Find them all on Kindle Unlimited.
Character Flaws - Joey: They say you never get a second chance at a first impression. That is, unless you’re my gorgeous temporary neighbor. My first impression of Theo Crawford was anything but wonderful. He was discourteous, anti-social, and a drunken mess. My second impression wasn’t much better when he inconsiderately woke me on a Sunday morning. But by my third impression, my views toward Theo began to soften. Maybe he isn’t as bad as he seems. And now? Well, let’s just say my defective heart doesn’t care that he’s gay, because I’ve fallen for him. Theo: Wait, what? I’m not gay. Where the hell did she get that impression?
The Reunion - Ten years can be a long time. So much can happen in a decade after high school graduation. Dreams can be born. Careers built. Families made. Futures solidified. But for Delaney Cooper, those ten years were deplete of the love and friendship of her best friend, Evan Stansfield, whom she lost the night after graduation. That was the night she gave everything to be with Evan Stansfield and lost it all. They were best friends. He was the charming, gorgeous bad boy and she the nerdy high school year book photographer. Despite their differences, they found a bond that made everything worthwhile. Their friendship built over time, but it took only one night to test their friendship, leaving two hearts shattered and withering for ten years – until their ten year reunion reminded them how to live again. The question is – can they rekindle their love and allow forgiveness to forge their future together?

When a chance run-in at one of his gigs has Kenzie leaning on him for support, Remy is given the opportunity to make her an offer she'd be foolish to refuse.

Can Kenzie rely on Remy to be there when she needs him the most? Will both their dark pasts ruin their chances at a bright future?
