Amazon | Audible |Google Play Store | Chirp Books | Scribd | Kobo | Apple Books | Nook Audio Books | Binge Books | Hoopla |

The heart wants what the heart wants, even when the head says Noooo!

There are five brothers. Each one of them have killer good looks. One is engaged to her best friend. That leaves four to flirt with, four hot men, so why does she only have eyes for the oldest grumpiest one in the bunch. Rachel Reardon has to question her own sanity when she’s enthralled with a man she can hardly stand to speak to. A first-class jerk and sexy as sin.

Adam Kipling can’t believe his bad luck when his soon-to-be sister-in-law’s best friend arrives. She is smoking hot and too damn young for him. He has responsibilities as the oldest sibling and they do not include flirting with young women.

There isn’t enough land on this Colorado ranch to keep them far enough apart. An explosion of some sort is inevitable.

Emma’s Rodeo Cowboy (Burlap and Barbed Wire Book 6)
Amazon | Audible | Google Play Store | Chirp Books | Scribd | Kobo | Apple Books | Nook Audio Books | Binge Books |

He’s never even kissed the woman, but her son is clearly, without a doubt, his.

Zach McCoy has been on the rodeo circuit for six years and is making a damn fine living at it. When he comes home, for the first time, to be in his best friend’s wedding he’s got one helluva surprise waiting for him in the shape of a five-year old boy who is his spitting image.

Emma Kipling took matters into her own hands six years ago, before the man she was crazy about took off to join the rodeo. She didn’t care one bit that he was two years older and she was still in high school, she wanted one night with him before he left to compete in a dangerous sport. When he didn’t come back after she found herself pregnant she knew he had abandoned her and her son.

Now he’s back for her brother’s wedding, and by the look on his face, sparks are going to fly. She’s ready and willing to go toe to toe with him and give him a piece of her mind.

Helluva Engineer (Helluva Engineer Book 1)
Amazon | Audible | Google Play Store | Chirp Books | Scribd | Kobo | Apple Books | Nook Audio Books | Binge Books |

How hard is it to re-ignite an old flame?

Steve Sampson has one week to convince his college sweetheart to give him the second chance he craves. He still loves her and knows he was a fool to let her go. Steve learned the hard way, that sometimes being a hero comes at a cost that’s impossible to live with.

Dr. Patricia Decatur is content as a professor at her mineral engineering college in Colorado. She’s got a fulfilling career and is excited to be helping with the Energy Summit being held on campus. Right up until she finds out who the keynote speaker is. Ten years ago, Steve broke her heart. She’s not interested in a repeat of that event.

As the keynote speaker Steve has plenty to share with the students and faculty. The bigger challenge will be to explain his past actions to his former girlfriend and entice (or let’s be honest, beg, if necessary) Patricia to give him a chance to redeem himself.

A stand-alone romance. These two engineers must reconcile their past, to savor the present, and determine if they can have a future…together.

Christmas at the Rockin’ K (Helluva Engineer Book 2)
Amazon | Audible | Google Play Store | Chirp Books | Scribd | Kobo | Apple Books | Nook Audio Books | Binge Books |

The Kipling family has returned for a Christmas celebration.
Brenda Stratton is shocked and, in truth, a little appalled that she and her roommate have been invited by their mentors to spend Winter break at a cattle ranch in the mountains of Colorado. Why would a family they don’t know invite them to spend Christmas with them? People just don’t do that, at least not in her experience.
Thomas Blackhawk has been asked by his employer to escort, and work with, a bunch of engineers coming in for three weeks to see if they can discover what is causing the contamination of a stream in the northern pasture. They’ve only got a few months to get the problem cleaned up before the spring thaw.
Brenda and Thomas take one look at each other and the heat roars. She’s too young for him and she’s only on the ranch for a few weeks. They need to ignore the flair of attraction and lust, if they know what’s good for them.
Apparently, they do not care what’s good for them.
