Book Description:

They’re opposites in every way. Can this headstrong pair reconcile their differences and write their own happily ever after—on and off the page?

Journalist Megan Woods knows that fairy tales don’t come true. So when a handsome stranger shows up to rescue her from a blind date gone wrong, she figures there has to be a catch. Turns out, he’s her newest competition at the newspaper. Megan thinks she has the editor-in-chief position sewn up, until the annoyingly good looking Finn Avery appears to steal her promotion.

As far as she’s concerned, their relationship is strictly business. But Finn is not anything like she expected. She just has to convince her heart not to fall for the enemy.

Finn Avery is looking for a fresh start. He moved to Wild Harbor as the town’s newest reporter, only to find out he’s been paired with spitfire Megan Woods. Finn needs to prove himself as a reporter, and that means winning over his gorgeous coworker, even though she’s immune to his charms. Finn’s past holds secrets that have taught him not to take a chance on love. Romance is the last thing on his mind.

When their boss assigns the pair to cover Wild Harbor’s biggest summer event, Finn has to find a way to keep his head in the game, without letting his heart fall. Both fiercely competitive, they’re opposites in every way. But when they’re forced to team up for a story, the sparks fly.

Can Finn let go of his past in order to risk his heart again? Can Megan find her happily ever after in the arms of her fiercest opponent?

Book Description:

An animal communicator, a dead body, and furry witnesses with a story to tell… I’m Dr. Kallie Collins, a veterinarian who can communicate with animals. No, it’s not as crazy as it sounds. Yes, it has landed me smack dab in the middle of a murder investigation. It all starts with a bone. A dog digs up the bone. A detective wants the bone. The dog wants to keep the bone. That’s where I come in. Instead of tranquilizing the dog as the skeptical detective suggests, I use an animal-communication technique and Voila! Tail wagging, the dog drops the bone, then leads me to the location of a complete human skeleton. Sheesh! Now I’m up to my ears in four-legged witnesses and trying to figure out who the killer is before it’s too late and another person disappears. I’m just hoping it won’t be me.

Now all she needs is the guts to make every one of those low-life gang members pay.

Helpless, he watches her enter the seedy underworld that’ll eat her alive.

Then he sees her fight.

And wonders if they’ll survive her.

Cass won’t rest until her brother’s murderers are jailed or dead. She goes after them one at a time with no intention of stopping until she has her revenge. Detective McGuire takes a bullet for her.

Two lovers torn apart by a wicked spell.

1768 – Lawrence Truelock, a seafaring man with a penchant for gambling, longs for a better life. When he inherits land on Cape Cod, Lawrence plans to create a legacy that includes building a magnificent mansion and finding a woman with a large dowry to wed.

Once Lawrence sees his dream fulfilled, he ignores his wife. His long absences leave Stephen longing for a father’s love, but Lawrence has no time for his boy. Despite this paternal abandonment, Stephen grows into a fine young man, but fate is cruel, and people, disappointing. When tragic circumstances force him to seek a bride, a family friend tells him about a young woman named Mercy Pruitt. Stephen travels to Philadelphia to meet her, and the two instantly fall in love, marry, and dream of a beautiful future.

But, alas, their best dreams are not enough to protect them from a powerful force working to separate the lovers. Mercy’s younger sister, Rose, is in love with Stephen, but kindhearted Mercy is blind to Rose’s duplicity. As she schemes to win Stephen away from her sister, Rose discovers a book on witchcraft in the mansion. As she genuinely believes Stephen could love her if not for Mercy, and her desperation to have him grows, Rose seeks a spell that will rid them of Mercy by sending her into the future.

Waiter to the Rich and Shameless

Book Description:

A down-and-out musician chops off his hair to become a server at the top of the Hollywood food chain, discovering a cloistered world of money, fame, bad behavior and intrigue.

Waiter to the Rich and Shameless is not just a peek into the secretive inner workings of a legendary 5-star restaurant; it is not just a celebrity tell-all or a scathing corporate analysis. It is a top-tier waiter’s personal coming-of-age story, an intimate look into the complicated challenges of serving in the country’s most elite, Hollywood-centric dining room while fighting to maintain a sense of self and purpose.

Of the many millions of food service workers around the globe, only a tiny number ever ascend to a top-level position at a world-renowned restaurant catering to iconic celebrities, moguls and politicians. As one of those select few, Paul (“Pauli”) Hartford is the first waiter to open the door into a cloistered, coveted world of money, fame, bad behavior and intrigue. He peels back the veneer of civility and culture at the nation’s most preeminent celebrity hangout, the Cricket Room, in Beverly Hills, California. He exposes the epic human foibles of its elite clientele, the dining room’s corrupt corporate culture, its clandestine culinary practices, and the heartbreaking struggles of its beleaguered waitstaff.

This keenly-observed story also traverses Pauli’s ten-year evolution from a jaded, party-hungry rock musician who moonlights as a bartender, into a snobbish and pretentious waiter, and finally into a polished and sophisticated server who takes his job so seriously that it drives him to the brink of illness. Pauli finds himself at first seduced by his famous guests’ glamour and self-indulgence, then accustomed to it, and finally appalled by it.

For obvious reasons, some details and specifics about the real Cricket Room have been cleverly disguised, but discerning readers will easily connect the dots.
