Another Last Call
One small town. Two childhood friends. Ten years later, will an attempt to save the local bar be their last call for love?
The bar was my legacy.
It was all I had to look forward to: a lonely life waiting tables in a small town and dumping beer on the tourists who got a little too forward.
Though, as the current owner of the bar, Mom didn't exactly approve of the beer-dumping thing. But it wasn't my fault they were pigs.
Maybe if I'd listened to her, things would have gone better.
Because then he came back.
Just in time to see everything around me crumble.
And he's the last person I want to get help from.
The cabin was my inheritance.
Not money or heirlooms. Just a rundown cabin in Marble Beach made even shoddier by the luxurious lake houses that surrounded it.
Typical Dad. Everything had to be a lesson with him.
I thought that was the last lesson he was trying to teach me: turning what I had into what I wanted. Take the cabin and spruce it up, then sell it so I could use the money to start my business like I'd planned.
But I was wrong.
She was my lesson.
But would she be my reward?

A young musician with a dark past. A single mom with a secret. And a little girl with a Christmas wish that threatens everything.
Being with Jimmy Reilly is the most selfish thing I could ever do.
There is no reason for a sassy, sweet, and seriously gorgeous man like him to want a cynical single mom in her thirties. And that's before you add in monster of an ex-husband or the fact that I can't even manage to get my daughter what she wants for Christmas.
And there is absolutely no good reason for me to want him back.
He's too young. Too kind. And way, way, way too much "my best friend's little brother."
Jimmy Reilly doesn't deserve to be dragged into the mess that is my life.
But for some reason...
He keeps insisting on it.
And the more I let him, the more I realize he's just as broken as I am.
And I'm only going to break him worse.

I thought Hunter was the perfect boyfriend: sweet, funny, kind to animals, and oh yeah - built with the body of a god and a smile that can drop panties from across the room.
Until he got onto the soccer field.
Then he's something I've never seen before.
Dominant. Aggressive. Bigger, stronger, and more talented than anyone else on the field.
I shouldn't like it so much. I shouldn't want to see my kind-hearted, cinnamon roll boyfriend become some alpha jerk who could really hurt someone.
But I do. At least, until someone knocks him down a few pegs and he shows his ugly side.
I don't want to see that ever again. And I'm going to make sure Hunter knows it.

What Happens In Vegas
The best part about my job working on the Las Vegas strip is the view.
I mean, sure, my bar is tucked away in a small outdoor market, surrounded by other bars and shops with no actual visibility of the strip. But that's okay.
The bartender they just hired at the place across from mine is better than looking at all the lights in Vegas. He's the man of my dreams. Gorgeous eyes. A great smile. Toned, tattooed... and totally unattainable.
I can't help it that I'm shy, but I can't even bring myself to say hello, even though we smile at each other almost every day. It isn't until a customer randomly mentions it that I even learn his name.
But finding his name out just raised more questions.

When It Rains
When he met my sister, I knew he was going to leave me for her.
Just like when I met his dad, I knew I wanted him more than anyone I'd seen before in my life.
What I didn't know?
Just how far my sister would go to hurt me.
Just how many secrets it takes to keep a family together.
And just how many knots would begin unravel when I found solace in the arms of the one person I shouldn't.
But it's like they say, I guess.
When it rains...
Jocelyn "Joss" Miller's family is, in a word, disastrous.

But when her sister does the unthinkable at her own wedding and Jocelyn is blamed, she finds comfort with the one man she shouldn't: a rugged carpenter and motorcycle enthusiast... who just so happens to be her ex's father, Derek Thompson.
With a sister dead set on revenge and an ex-boyfriend trying to repair his relationship with the father Jocelyn has fallen for, will the secrets revealing themselves one after the other lead to heartbreak, or can Jocelyn and Derek weather the storm and find love on the other side?
