Previously Released

After his sister’s death, businessman Marshall Hunter gains custody of his niece. Unused to children, Marshall struggles to connect with her. In an effort to make her more comfortable in her new home, he hires professional muralist Pace Barlow to personalize her room.

Pace is intrigued by his tiny client, and even more interested in her handsome uncle, but Pace isn’t certain he’s ready for the commitment of an instant family.

When Marshall decides to move for the sake of his niece, will he be able to keep his relationship with his young artist, or will he have to give up love to become a good father for a lonely little girl?

The love baked into an old-fashioned recipe might bring the two men together, but some things take more than magical cookies to fix.

Happy New Years…and contest!

I have to admit I love New Years. Not the parties or the noise of fireworks, but the symbolism behind starting a brand new year. I always think of it as a way to refocus my goals and really concentrate on what is really important.

Of course each year I hope to keep the feeling all the way through but I rarely accomplish it. LOL! This year I’m not going to plan any long term goals I’m only going to make one. To enjoy each day as it comes. Between hubby’s health and the kids growing older with more complex issues, life can be stressful. For Christmas, hubby got me a folding bike so I can ride alongside the water. I am going to use it to relax and get some exercise. Not letting stress build up will be both good for my health and my writing.

What is it that you want to accomplish in 2020? We will run a contest until Sunday. The winner will get a copy of all of my books published this year. Good luck!

Welcome Birthday Guest KC Burn!

Happy Birthday Amber! Thanks for the invite to the party! I’m KC Burn and I’m stoked to be here again.

Memorable birthdays… I’ve sort of downplayed my birthday for years, so I really had to think about this one. When I was ten I met a couple of girls and I’m pretty sure we’ll be friends for life. I mean, it’s been over 35 years now, and I see no reason to change it up at this late date. Anyway, our birthdays are all in about a 3 week span of time, so once we were teens we more or less started celebrating together, which suited me fine. My hubby, whom I met when I was 19, has his birthday 6 days after mine, so we often celebrate together too, and my birthday tends to take more of a back seat. This past year we did 4 escape rooms in one day which was so much fun. But memorable? I don’t much do memorable birthday celebrations.

I mean… there was the time I had to travel for work on my birthday. Or that time I took an intensive self-editing course.

There was also the year I turned 18 when my mother lost her damned mind and rented plastic penguins for the lawn and arranged for a dude in a bear suit to sing happy birthday to me at work. Memorable, yes, but if you knew my mother… just too, too weird.

However, for our 40th birthday, my girlfriends and I took a long weekend and met up in Boston (I’d been living in the US for a few years at that point and they were both in Toronto). That was an awesome trip. We walked all over Boston, saw Boston Common, visited Harvard, went to museums, took a boat trip to Salem, and ate all the things including (unexpectedly) the best and biggest damn cannoli I’ve had in my life. It was such a good trip and in a couple years I’m hoping we’ll be doing a similar weekend for our 50th.

In honour of that birthday cannoli, let me know what’s your favourite birthday dessert and one random commenter will win a $10 Amazon gift card.

A Cowboy’s Christmas Luck blurb:
Jonah Beecham is a down on his luck cowboy, stuck in Vegas with no money, no job, no friends, and Christmas rapidly approaching. Although he’d been promised a job as a bullfighter, the job falls through, and he’ll be sleeping in his truck for Christmas. In a fit of desperation, he drops a coin in an old-fashioned slot machine and wins enough to put gas in his truck… plus a little something extra. Rather than press his luck, he decides to leave the casino, but the universe isn’t done with him yet.

Zach Evans is a television writer from Los Angeles who loves all things cowboy. He’s in Las Vegas to do some research at an end of year rodeo event. Too wary to approach any of the sexy cowboys he sees, he finally takes a chance when he bumps into Jonah.

Spending the next week in Zach’s bed might seem like Jonah’s luck has changed, but when Jonah realizes he’s falling for a man who lives in a city where none of his skills are employable, he’s got a choice to make. Fear of the unknown will cost him Zach, but accepting that the universe has more luck in store for him might be more than he can handle.

Available at Amazon.

Welcome Birthday Guest V.L. Locey!

Hi everyone! I’m so tickled to be here to join in Amber’s November Blog Birthday Bash.

Aren’t birthdays just the best? We have so many important ones in our lives. That sweet sixteen, when we turn eighteen and then twenty-one. Many people feel that hitting thirty and/or forty are causes for celebration as well!

As someone who has seen all of the previously mentioned special days, I can say that they all were incredible in their own ways. I’d have to say that my most significant birthday was when I hit fifty.I really began to understand myself and my dreams when the big five-oh rolled around. It was then that I decided to try my hand at writing professionally and am I ever glad that I did!

My life has changed so much since I decided to give being an author a whirl. I’ve met so many wonderful people and been able to spin a few darn fine tales of romance along the way! I’m hoping to still be sitting here at my desk writing stories for many birthdays yet to come.

To win a copy of Coast to Coast, Arizona Raptors #1 tell me what your favorite childhood birthday gift was. One winner chosen randomly. Good luck!If you’d like to check out my latest release here’s a bit of info about it—

NOW IN KU and written with RJ ScottAcross the Pond (Arizona Raptors 2)
Amazon US | Amazon UK |Amazon CA

The greatest journey isn’t from England to the States, it’s the one that two men take on the way to find each other.

Sebastian Brown is on a mission to rescue the Arizona Raptors and a vow he made to a friend in college. Either that or he’s on vacation. He’s not entirely sure that he’s made up his mind yet. Either way, traveling from England, to the arid desert of Arizona isn’t exactly a picnic, particularly with the doubts and worries he takes with him. He’s turned even the worst of companies around, but faced with the challenge of improving the reputation of a hockey team that everyone seems to hate, he knows his work is cut out for him.

Focus is key, but that is easier said than done when Seb is sent into a tailspin by the intriguing Alejandro. Seb’s entire marketing plan hinges on making Alex a poster boy for equality and fair play. But with Alex’s utter dedication to the game, and his dark secretive eyes, the gorgeous Alex is stubborn, opinionated, doesn’t want any part of being the team focus, and worst of all, doesn’t appear to like Seb at all. It takes everything that Seb has to keep his hands off of Alex, but things get out of hand and Seb’s life might never be the same again.

Alejandro Garcia has had to work hard to get where he’s at. Born to Mexican immigrants, his siblings and himself have never had it easy in this new country their parents dreamed of calling home. A native son of Arizona, Alex has always been the odd man out on the ice but he’s not going to let a stupid thing like his heritage get in the way of his dreams. He’s now a Raptor and he plans to put all that training and collegiate hockey experience to good use. Working hard comes naturally to him. It’s something his parents have instilled in him from the time he was a toddler. Being one of a handful of Latino hockey players makes him strive for success with even more determination. His first pro season has had some ups but a lot more downs, but Alex is one stubborn young man and failure is not an option.

As the Raptors struggle to rebuild not only their team but their core values, Alex finds himself drawn to one of the owner’s friends, a tall, lanky Brit with the face of an angel and an accent and attitude that bewitches and befuddles him. Sebastian is everything he thought he would never be attracted to but he can’t push the sexy, older, fun-loving man out of his thoughts. If ever there were a man he would not be able to take home to his parents – not that he can bring a man home since he is deeply closeted – it’s Sebastian, but desire knows no socioeconomic, age, or international borders. The heart wants what the heart wants and Alejandro’s wants Sebastian.
