Noelle, a hotel, and two hearts that fell . . . Noelle Green 

Holidays are turning out to be something of a special time for me. On Halloween I got pregnant, and now that we're heading for Christmas - who knows? 

When I tell the father of my baby that he’s going to be a dad, he surprises me by not running away. Even though all we had was one night, he's willing to see where this goes, and so am I. 

Little do Cal and I know that what we started on Halloween night just might see us through the rest of our lives.

Reeling from a broken engagement, Andi Carter swears off men. She quits her job in New York and returns home to figure out next steps. Luckily, she quickly finds a job--one that will take her mind off her ex--as a caretaker for an elderly widower, Liam Quinn. Liam is the owner of Christmastown, a holiday-themed amusement park that shut down years ago. But he’s anxious to reopen it, and Andi, loving the concept, throws herself into helping him. It’s the perfect distraction. Bonus: there are no eligible men for miles.

Until Matt Taylor shows up to audit the park.

Matt is handsome, charming, and full of surprises. Even Liam’s notoriously cranky cat, Claus, likes him. Andi works with Matt on a Christmastown project and platonic feelings turn into a full-fledged crush…maybe a little more. She likes this guy. Unbelievably, Matt seems to like her back.

Only she soon discovers that Matt isn’t who he says he is. So now, Andi has another decision to make—run away and start over—again? Or stay, and hear Matt out? After all, Christmas is the season of miracles…

Being a single mom is the most challenging, yet rewarding job I’ve ever had. Especially in a small town, where everyone knows your story, or at least their version of it.
They say it takes a village, and they’re right. I’ve been lucky to have close friends to help me raise my son, Brody. One particular friend stands out above the rest. TD stepped up in a big way, teaching my son everything a father should. That’s why his friendship means so much to me. Brody and I both rely on his friendship. Any feelings I have for my sexy friend must stay buried. It’s safer that way.
Turns out, it’s much harder to do when he decides he’s done being just my friend. He wants more.

There’s nothing worse than being in lust with one of your friends. For years, I’ve been fighting my attraction to Ellie and keeping it a secret. I thought I was doing what was best for all of us.
Between working as the local police officer and coaching high school football, I’m left with very little downtime, but what I do have is spent with Ellie and her son. When I find out the seventeen-year-old boy might be working to get this football coach and his mom together, all bets are off. With Brody on my side, I’m willing to take the chance and blur the lines between friends and lovers.
I have to make her see we can have it all. Despite her reservations, I’ll show her love is worth the risk.

Never make a deal with the Devil.
They call me a monster. A master of disguise. The phantom who travels within shadows.
It's been said that I can steal a man's breath from across the room or slice his throat without lifting a finger.
The rumors are true.
I have a gift for dealing death, a hunger for bloodshed that blocks rational thought.
And when something of mine is threatened . . . I unleash the beast, giving into his carnal, wicked appetite.
There's one soul on this earth that I crave, covet, and swear to protect at all costs.
My pretty, perfect doll.
A wicked biker like me doesn't deserve her light, grace, or love, but that doesn't stop me from taking it.
Bianca is mine.
Nothing is breaking us apart, even if I have to wreck everyone in my path to keep her.
And selling my soul to the devil seems like a fair price to pay to ensure no one stands in my way.
Reckless Mayhem is not a standalone. Manic Mayhem MUST be read first.
A twist on the classic The Phantom of the Opera.
Reckless Mayhem is part of the Royal Bastards MC Tonopah/Las Vegas, NV world and includes steamy scenes, biker slang, kidnapping, violence, revenge, dark content, and a slight paranormal twist. This is a wicked tale with a biker/mafia mashup featuring an OTT, protective, possessive outlaw.

Lock is a man haunted by past mistakes, struggling to rebuild his life. Devastated by the loss of his twin sister to a drug overdose, he now bears the weight of raising her infant son. Overwhelmed by grief and the responsibility thrust upon him, Lock seeks solace in the very substances that stole his only sibling. But when the president of his motorcycle club lays down an ultimatum, Lock has no choice but to face his heartache. With a chance for redemption, his only priorities are being a good father and regaining his club’s trust, even if he'll never feel worthy.

Freshly single and excited to regain her independence, Brenna stumbles upon a problem that could cost her more than she ever imagined. Unwilling to be a pawn in her ex's dangerous game, she steps into the ruthless world of the motorcycle club. But instead of finding men who live up to the horrific rumors, Brenna finds allies in an unexpected place. The MC members, appalled by her ex's callousness, promise to protect her and seek vengeance against her ex. Assigned to safeguard Brenna, Lock finds himself drawn to her strength and vulnerability.

As they navigate a path filled with challenges and desire, Lock and Brenna's connection deepens. But the question looms: can their attraction survive the stark differences in their worlds?

Brenna, an outsider to the MC, and Lock, a man desperate to rebuild his life and be a good father, face an uncertain future. But when they believe the most significant threat is behind them, Brenna’s ex emerges as a more formidable adversary than imagined. A relentless enemy, he threatens to tear them apart before they can confront their inner demons and find happiness.

Bryson Robinson knows exactly what he wants. His parents are a love-at-first-sight success story, so he recognizes what he felt with Rose Shaw during their night together could be the real deal. She has no interest in long-distance dating…so when the league’s best pitcher gets devastating news that could be the third strike for his career, he turns it into a win, going all in to get the girl. Starting with a home in Montana—and hiring Rose to design it.

Now he just has to convince her that not all men, including MLB superstars, are players…if she’s daring enough to take the risk.

She’s a pariah with a killer past. Her bid to escape it is nothing short of terrifying in a heart-pounding novel of suspense by Washington Post and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Minka Kent.

Afton Teachout has been an outcast in her small town for twenty years—ever since she was accused of murdering her mother’s lover in a blackout fit of rage. That is, if one believes the malicious lies.

Living with her grandmother, working a hotel night shift, and relying on pills to get a day’s sleep, Afton is due a little luck. It comes in the form of an unexpected financial windfall. With her newfound wealth, Afton sets a secret plan in motion to help her only friend, Sydney, flee a toxic husband. But the best intentions soon spin out of control.

Afton is getting unsettling calls from a restricted number, and someone has been lingering outside her home. As Sydney’s troubled marriage comes into focus, so does Afton’s past. Her second chance—for herself and for Sydney—isn’t what she dreamed of at all. In fact, it’s becoming a nightmare.
