Living With the Single Dad

(The Single Dads of Seattle #4)

A pain so powerful can only be eased by a love even stronger.
Welcome to Seattle, the Emerald City and home to The Single Dads of Seattle. Ten sexy single fathers who play poker every Saturday night, have each other's backs, love their children without quarter, and hope to one day find love again.
This is Aaron's story ...
Single Dad of Seattle, Aaron Steele isn't a single dad at all. He's a retired Navy SEAL whose sister just died, leaving him to raise her newborn daughter all by himself. Only he has no clue how to be a dad--let alone a single dad. He's lost in a sea of diapers and bottles, late nights and exhausting mornings, all the while dealing with a failure from his last mission he just can't shake. He needs help. He needs a nanny.
Professional nanny Isobel Jones has a heart of gold. She's always willing to help out, no matter the cause. She spends her days with children making memories and her nights on the laptop making magic as a graphic designer. After hearing Aaron's heartbreaking story, she jumps at the chance to help. But she never expected her new boss to be a blue-eyed Adonis with dog tags, who quickly begins to fuel her fantasies.
While the beautiful nanny is off-limits, she's also a welcomed distraction. Aaron's grief is still raw and he just knows he's going to mess up this whole dad thing. Isobel's never shied away from a challenge, and that's exactly what Aaron is--a big challenge. He's angry and stubborn, moody and confusing, and yet she knows deep down he's capable of so much love.
Will Isobel living with the single dad help pull him out of his misery, or will Aaron let the turmoil inside him chase away perhaps the only person that could help him finally find happiness?
**Note: This book can be read as a standalone. It includes lots of steamy scenes, cursing, and of course as with all my books, this has an HEA and no cliffhanger or cheating. If you like single dads who take charge, this book is for you.

“Wow! How do I put into words how this books makes you feel. Whitley Cox is an amazing wordsmith and weaves Aaron and Isobel’s story with such ease, it’s incredible.” ~Stephanie Ditmore (Amazon Review)

“This book had me in tears from the opening pages.  The reader cannot help but fall in love with Aaron and only want him to open up and let others in.  Whitley Cox created a beautiful and heart-warming romance while tackling the hot topics such as gun control, foster care, and what a true family means.  I absolutely love this series!!” ~ Nicki Holt (Amazon Review)

“First read from this author and I loved it!
Broody alpha male? Check! Strong, sassy woman? Check! Cute baby? Check! Random drama and crazy friends? Check, check!
Whitley Cox just jumped on my TBR ASAP list!” ~ Cassie Ashford (Goodreads Review)

He might be one of the best riders in the world, but she’ll give him the buck of his life.
WOULD YOU RATHER… Go through your entire life without ever falling in love?
OR… Have a rough-and-tumble cowboy stomp all over your heart with his sharpened spurs before riding off into the sunset like John f***ing Wayne?
Yeah, that happened. And frankly, I knew better. All cowboys are trouble. I’ve grown up around them my entire life, so I know how they operate. I’ve broken some of the toughest horses in the business. But for some reason, I found this thoroughbred impossible to resist.
A lot of good it did me too. Nothing but tears and comfort eating in the aftermath.
Suddenly, after a year away with no phone calls or texts to show for it, he’s back. He thinks we can pick up where we left off. But I’ve got news for him: His eight seconds with me are already up.
Little do I know, there’s a reason why he’s come back. And it’s the absolute last thing I expect.

It’s the week before Christmas as tea maven Theodosia Browning and her tea sommelier, Drayton, cater a fancy Victorian Christmas party for Miss Drucilla Heyward, one of Charleston’s wealthy doyennes. But smack dab in the middle of the Fa-la-la’s, Miss Drucilla is murdered, her gold rings stolen off her fingers, and a genuine Renoir snatched off the wall.

The police come screaming in while Theodosia peers speculatively at the guests and wonders – whodunit? Urged on by Miss Drucilla’s personal assistant, Theodosia runs a shadow investigation on suspects that include wealthy neighbors, a handyman named Smokey, an unscrupulous art dealer, and the executive directors of two local charities who were in line for donations.

As Theodosia continually finds herself in hot water, she also hosts numerous holiday tea parties, stumbles upon a second dead body, and shelters a cadre of homeless dogs who come to her rescue in the surprise ending. This Tea Shop Mystery is written with pacing, plot twists, and action reminiscent of a thriller and is liberally sprinkled with the magic of Christmas.

(Young Irish Rebels #4)

My family are Mafia
A truth I still can't accept.
A secret I want no part in, one that could get me killed.
My father placed me in Cillian's hands for protection, or so I'm told.
But his protection feels like prison bars, and I refuse to be his captive.
My Life is unraveling.
My father's words feel like lies.
And the longer I stay hidden with my bodyguard, the more I see the truth.
Cillian is everything I shouldn't want, a threat no one saw coming.
I'm in the hands of my father's enemy, hands that make me ache.
Now I have a choice to make.
A deadly choice.

She's the daughter of Liam O'Reagan: the sheltered Princess of the Irish Mafia.
When her life is put in danger, I make a deal with the devil.
He offers something I want, and I vow to keep his daughter safe.
Safe from the men who would use her to wound her father.
Safe from the secrets she keeps trying to uncover.
Safe from everything--including me.
Until she runs and I have to chase her.
The thrill of the hunt mixed with the scent of her fear and panic is a deadly combination.
I couldn't resist one small taste.
The King of the Irish Mafia might take my head for touching his daughter, but not before I have his.

He’s my only cure. And my deadliest poison.
Once upon a time, a scarred beast met a broken beauty.
But to keep my kingdom and appease the Bratva High Council, I’m going to marry a man who’s family my family tried to destroy.
A man who looks at me with cold, brutal blue eyes. A man whose very presence sucks the air from my lungs. A man with no past, shrouded in scars, pain, and darkness.
The rules are simple: get in, get out, don’t fall for the terrifying and magnetically gorgeous Lukas Komarov.
Because this isn't really about me. This is about securing a future for my sick sister. Even if that means binding myself to a man who hates me.
‘Til death do us part...but that’s going to come quicker than anyone knows.
You see, this story has an expiration date. I have an expiration date.
In six months, I’ll be dead.
They say love is a battle.
And I’ve got nothing to lose.
This *standalone*, extra angsty, very dark Bratva academy romance is guaranteed to leave your kindle steaming. Step into the viper’s nest of Oxford Hills Academy and meet the Savage Heirs of Bratva kings and oligarchs.
Absolutely no cheating, no cliffhanger, and a happy ever after.
