Sweet Life in Seattle, Book 1

Starting over is never easy…

Bakery owner Natalie is humiliated when her husband leaves her for a woman who’s thirteen years older. He wants a divorce and says his mistress makes him feel alive, while Natalie makes him feel dead.

She stays strong for her daughter, but it isn’t easy. Secretly she wishes she had her old life back. After years of feeling invisible, in a crazy move, she colors her mousy hair to a brilliant blonde.

Meanwhile, she’s trying to expand her Seattle bakery but runs into a problem with her irritatingly handsome landlord.

Women usually love astronomer Anthony Novello. The one exception is his new tenant, Natalie. He’s never met a woman more annoying. But when Anthony returns from a telescope observing run, he realizes she’s changed.

Despite their battles, he convinces her to go out with him. She has her doubts. Lots of them. To their surprise, the relationship grows deeper than either of them expects.

When her husband realizes the giant mistake he made and comes crawling back, Natalie has to choose. Is her old life the one she still wants?

Because it turns out her year of living blonde may be the best year ever.

Warning: Contains one hot astrophysicist, a curvaceous and stubborn heroine, steamy sex scenes, a villainous ex-husband, his crazy cougar mistress, and the story of how when opposites attract they sometimes–against all odds–fall in love.





Sweet Life in Seattle, Book 2

After five years without a word, her husband has finally decided to come home.

Wedding cake baker Blair Thomas loves her life. Her business is thriving, her Seattle condo has a great view of the water, and her refurbished ‘65 convertible Mustang “Isadora” is the coolest car ever. She barely even thinks about that jerk she married five years ago. The one who abandoned her after four months of marriage. The one who left a note on her pillow saying, “See you later, babe.”

Seriously, who does that?

So what if she was once obsessively in love with him. He’s her best friend’s older brother and for years he barely even knew she was alive. He never loved her, and he only married her because of a drunken mistake. At least she’s over him.

Definitely over him.

The only problem is Blair never got around to divorcing him so technically they’re still married. And after five years of traveling the world—Nathan “Road” Church—has finally decided to come home. He arrived on Blair’s doorstep this morning, and now he’s in her bathroom taking a shower. The nerve of him! Oh, and did I mention he’s still hot? Blair doesn’t know what to do.

The jerk has returned.

Warning: Contains one sexy jerk, humorous situations, a heroine with obsessive-compulsive disorder, cussing and swearing, steamy love scenes, and references to a part of the male anatomy that doesn’t crow like a rooster – but certainly rises in the early morning.





Sweet Life in Seattle, Book 3

She’s a free-spirited artist. He’s a surgeon who needs a wife.

Lindsay West is more than satisfied with her life. She enjoys men, but she enjoys her freedom even more. Why would she marry again? Marriage is like agreeing to eat the same boring meal for the rest of your life.

No, thanks.

Giovanni Novello isn’t like other plastic surgeons. While his colleagues are getting rich doing facelifts and boob jobs, he’s traveling to the most dangerous places in the world helping needy children. Some people even call him a saint.

Lindsay would call him something far less flattering. After an ill-fated one-night stand, she hopes she never sees “the saint” again.

Except to her astonishment, Giovanni shows up on her doorstep one evening and tells her he needs a wife.

Too bad. He can ask someone else.

But after she’s robbed and all her savings are stolen, she finds herself desperate.

Maybe even desperate enough to marry the saint.

Warning: Contains one insufferable surgeon who’s sexy as hell, a heroine who plays poker and curses too much, steamy nights in Berlin, …and a love story between two people who help each other heal from their difficult pasts.





Sweet Life in Seattle, Book 4

High school is over, but her grudge against him isn’t.

Three things Tori Church loves:

1. Her dogs (a.k.a. “the boys”)
2. ’80s hair bands
3. Dr. Adrian Grant

As you can see, Liam Castillo is not on this list. He never will be either.

He’s the loser who humiliated her in high school. Embarrassing her in front of everyone while he and his jock buddies laughed.

Dr. Adrian Grant, the new vet at the animal hospital, is handsome and kind. The perfect man. Tori’s tired of dating losers. Tired of dead-end relationships. She’s determined to find her special person and is convinced Dr. Adrian is The One.

But then Liam hires her as his pet sitter, and the trouble starts.

Who would have guessed he’s an FBI agent? Or has these warm brown eyes and sensual lips. This strong muscular body. He used to play professional baseball.

Plus, it turns out Liam is sort of nice. A lot nicer than she remembers.

Tori’s worried.

Is she really falling for the horrible guy she’s held a grudge against all these years?

Warning: Contains one broodingly handsome FBI agent, one over-scheduled heroine, a furball named Miss Fancy Pants, steamy sex scenes, …and the story of a boy who once had a crush on a girl and asked her to a high school dance.





Sweet Life in Seattle, Book 5

Sometimes one night is all it takes.

Brody doesn’t think much of the good-looking older blonde who’s dropped her car off at his garage. It’s pretty obvious she’s a hot mess. He’s had rude customers before, but she’s going for the gold medal.

When her car is ready, he discovers he can’t get her on the phone. But then as he’s closing shop for the night, she shows up plastered drunk.

Brody doesn’t know what to do. He’d like to send her away in an Uber, but she’s refusing to leave. There’s no chance he’s letting her drive her car, and she can’t just stay at the garage.

Out of desperation, he brings her home with him.

That turns out to be a big mistake…

Warning: Contains one hot genius auto mechanic, a corporate climbing heroine whose life breaks down, one villainous ex-boyfriend, one non-villainous ex-girlfriend, steamy sex scenes, and the story of two people who accidentally fall in love while trying to get over their broken hearts.
