One night—a single moment—cost me everything.
My body, broken beyond repair. The boy I’d thought was my forever. The life I’d always dreamt of.
Now, Holt’s back. And he’s no longer a boy, but a man with shadows in his eyes and demons haunting him.
He says he’s here to make things right. To get back a little bit of all we’ve lost. And he doesn’t show any signs of leaving the small town that has been my refuge.
As stolen moments turn to days, Holt’s around every corner. With his burning stare and lingering touches. Before long, my walls come crashing down and I’m just hoping that taking this second chance isn’t as reckless as it feels.
But not everyone is happy that Holt has returned. As tragedy strikes again, I’m the one left in the crosshairs. And Holt might not be able to save me this time…
I should know better than to let Tessa McDaniels pretend to be my fiancée.
I’m a dark, dangerous disaster who leaves destruction in his wake.
But when she offers to pretend to marry me to help me get my kids back, I can’t refuse. They are the one thing I have left to fight for.
Milo Hendricks found me at my lowest.
Battered and broken by my ex with no place to call home. When he insists I stay at his cabin with him, he sparks the feelings I’ve tried to suppress.
He’s only supposed to be my friend, but every time he comes in the room, he makes my knees weak.
This gorgeous, tatted, mountain-of-a-man who’s riddled with secrets.
Tessa is everything I crave but can’t have.
I shouldn’t touch her.
Shouldn’t make it real.
But she’s a red-headed flame I can’t resist, and I can’t help but take her to my bed.
Now we’re falling into an abyss of passion and need.
Loving her is easy.
Only we’re tied in ways we don’t know.
I’ll do anything to protect her, but it’s my past that might destroy her in the end…
She didn't think it could ever happen again. Love that is. And it definitely shouldn't be happening with him.
Anna Kulis has lost her husband. Their love was a perfect kind of love; a once in a lifetime experience. She never intended to fall for anyone again. Never expected to have this attraction stirring inside her. And she never thought her emotions would run wild for the one man she shouldn't be attracted to - her late husband's best friend.
Mason Becker has a secret. As a renowned ladies' man, he's been in love with his best friend's wife for twenty-five years. After his friend's untimely death, and a period of grief, Mason finds himself in a compromising position with the one woman he didn't think he'd ever have. And that night leads to complications - namely, a desire for more.
Letting go can be one of the hardest tasks for the heart.
Opening up to a second chance at love can be even harder.
Dixie might belong in Kissing Creek, but she’s got too many reasons to leave.
A decade ago, I had a plan. I’d graduate high school and make my place in the small southern town I belonged to. I’d leave my daddy’s run-down single-wide and ignore him when he got ugly. I’d send my mama to voicemail when she called from her fancy life in Chicago. Mostly, I’d wait for Deke to get through college and come back to me and the life we’d build together. I didn’t realize how suddenly plans can change.
Deke isn’t planning to leave their hometown, but he may have lost his reason to stay.
Ten years ago, I was the quiet one. The nerd with the glasses. President of the damn math club. A candidate for any college I chose. What I wanted was a life with Dixie. She believed I had more to offer, though. Encouraged me to shine for the world. But if I can’t admit it to myself, how do I confess I might want that, too? Turns out, I didn’t get the chance.
My accidental solo vacation takes a turn for the less-depressing after a drink that leads to a date with a brawny, bedroom-eyed firefighter. I’m 42, divorced, with two daughters at home. I thought romance was in my rearview mirror until the mysteriously intense Leo makes me feel like I’m the only woman in the Florida Keys.
I know better than to get attached. But between midnight kisses and dirty talk under starry skies, our connection feels so real. So right.
I can’t give up my entire life for a fling. Not even for a man that reminds me I’m not defined by a failed marriage and a car pool calendar. And especially not one who has no interest in a family of his own, let alone a package deal like me.
We were supposed to be temporary. Just like everything else in my life. So why can’t I get Kristina out of my head? I’m the master of no strings, no attachments. But our time together haunts me after she leaves.
I’m not cut out to make a life with a woman. A woman with two kids? Forget it.
At least, that’s what I thought until fate brings us together again. It turns out the move I made to be closer to family brings me to Kristina’s hometown—and right in her path.
I can’t still explain the overpowering pull between us, but I’m sure of who she is.
And I’m not letting her go this time.
When the biggest rockstar in the world invited me into his home, there was one rule:
Don’t touch his daughter.
For a kid from the wrong side of the tracks with no future, the offer should have been a dream come true.
Classy new digs.
A fancy prep school.
Someone who cares what happens to me.
Except for that rule.
The rich pricks at my new school worship me. I couldn’t care less.
She's the one person who makes me feel worthwhile.
I want to save her from the turmoil eating up her picture-perfect world.
But she thinks I’m her rival: for her friends, her future, her father’s love.
I should keep my distance.
Avoid rescuing her from the assholes at school.
Definitely pretend I can’t see in her bedroom window from the pool house.
There are only two obsessions my life—music…and her.
All I have is my talent to set me free.
But my future will burn if I can’t stay away.
Rivals is an epic, angsty romance featuring two people from opposite sides of the track forced together by a forbidden love that could cost them everything.
Note: If you have previously read A Love Song for Liars, A Love Song for Rebels, and a Love Song for Dreamers, the new RIVALS ebook also contains an extended epilogue short story.
They built an empire on lies and deceit.
I was here to burn it down.
They called it Judgment Day—as though they were gods among men.
It was their reason for taking her.
It was their motive for punishing me.
After spending five years in prison for a crime I didn't commit, I walked out a monster disguised as a gentleman.
It's time to take back what's mine, including her.
She thinks she's in love with someone else—and maybe she is.
So, I'll share her with him.
But only for a while.
I'll be her hero... and her villain.
In a world of secrets and sacrifice, someone is bound to lose. A day of judgment is coming. This time it will be me they bow down to.
This is an MFM (not MMF) romance with an HEA.

He’s going to help me get revenge.
