Crazy for You
Annapolis Harbor Series, Book 4
Renovating a bed and breakfast may build more than they imagined....
No relationships. No flings with single moms. Nothing that gets me tied down--or worse yet--heartbroken. My brother suffered through pain and heartbreak, and I'm not about to follow in those footsteps. When you get too close, you get hurt. No thanks, I'm out.
Now, I'm renovating a bed and breakfast--that was supposed to be mine. The only problem is that I'm right alongside Juliana Breslin, the one person who infuriates me the most. With her high, sexy heels, her curve-hugging business suit and her twin daughters, I am losing my mind and concentration.
Unfortunately, her little girls are the sweetest kids I’ve ever met. They manage to wrap their way around every one of my fingers, thawing my cold heart. I can’t help but be impressed by Julianna’s grit and determination, especially in front of her jerk of an ex. She’s under more pressure than one person can handle.
I’ll do anything for her and her girls.
Everything, other than be the man in her life.
I’m finally free of my cheating ex, living my dream of renovating a bed and breakfast.
My first contractor took my money, leaving a bigger mess than before. Nothing prepared me for the only other available contractor, Nolan Morrison. He’s irritable and close-minded--and incredibly irresistible.
I’ve fallen for the tool belt, saw dust, strong forearms, and sexy scruff before. I won’t do it again.
No matter how attracted I am to him, my girls need stability. If I date, it will be with the right guy. It will definitely not be with one so afraid of a relationship that he pushes everyone around him away.
Nolan shocks me when he draws my shy daughter out of her shell, something no one else has been able to do. Then he stands up for me in front of my ex. He’s crashing through my walls faster than I can throw them up.
Too bad we don’t want the same things—a commitment, a family, a life together. Suddenly, Nolan’s becoming everything I need.

Lost without You
Annapolis Harbor Series, Book 2
Opening a law firm isn't at all what I thought it would be. The landlord is arrogant and irritating. Despite his sexy voice and smooth demeanor, I want to fight him at every turn. Everything with him is a battle--a battle I intend to win. After all, I'm an attorney who never backs down. But when he needs my help, I can't possibly refuse. Who could? Thrown into a role he knows nothing about can't be easy.
Beneath his gruff nature is a broken man who needs to be put back together. The last thing I will ever do is let someone destroy him more.
A cheating fiancée and a backstabbing best friend are not the worst of my problems. When my brother dies, I'm thrust into the life of a single parent. In over my head, I'm forced to seek help from the lawyer who fights me every chance she can. Avery Arrington is a smart-mouthed, feisty woman, who can win my case. Powerful, intelligent, and sexy, I want her in ways I've sworn off for good.
But right now, it's all about my nephew. He's my top priority--the only thing that matters. Now, I have to put all of my faith and hope in Avery to save me—save us. I rarely trust anyone. But the truth is, without Avery, I'd be lost.
Only with You
Annapolis Harbor Series, Book 1
First I turned down a marriage proposal, then I moved to Annapolis to open a law firm. I thought my world couldn't change any more...
Until Cade stepped into my office, smelling of sawdust with his company’s T-shirt stretched taut over his chest and biceps. Everything about him was sexy-as-sin and completely off-limits.
But I can’t risk the business I sunk my savings into by dating a client, and he won’t risk his heart.
The more we spend time together, the more I want him. Even if a relationship between us was possible, how can he give me all of him?
After my wife died, I swore off dating. I threw myself into my charity instead. It was easy at first, but I can't ignore my attraction anymore.
Hadley comes from a wealthy family that operates with manipulation, lies, and deceit. I don’t fit into her world, but the closer we get, the more I wanted to show her how things could be different.
I never thought I’d meet someone who gave me hope for a future. One full of possibilities, love, and maybe even marriage and kids.
But how can I promise her forever when I know love doesn’t last?
Hooked on You
Annapolis Harbor Series, Prequel
Hooked on You is the emotionally charged prequel to the Annapolis Harbor Series.
The new Assistant U.S. Attorney was the last person I needed in my business... or my bar. The way she walked in wearing a tight suit and red power heels, flashing that badge should be illegal.
Asking her for help was a mistake. Wanting her was a complication, one that I couldn't afford. We were from two different worlds.
Taylor was spoiled, privileged and in way over her head. I was just the bad boy that girls like her were attracted to, a passing phase. An itch to scratch.
I was no good for her and never would be.
New Orleans was a fresh start, a chance to reinvent myself and do some good. Too bad the first person I met was a grumpy bartender with a chip on his shoulder.
He said I knew nothing about his city, the people or what they needed. But one look at the bad boy bartender and I knew exactly what I needed. Even if I refused to admit it.
Gabe was a connection to the community. Offering to waitress at his bar in exchange for his help had nothing to do with his flexing biceps or tattoos.
He thought he knew me, that I couldn't handle him or the city... but he was wrong.
Hooked on You was previously titled Easy Moves, and includes a brand new extended epilogue.
Written in Corinne Michaels' "Salvation Society" Universe.
All I ever wanted was a family of my own.
Getting involved with Mason Arrington is a bad idea. Navy pilot, with a swagger, unlike any guy I’ve ever been attracted to before. He’s confident and aloof, but underneath that rough exterior, is someone who is struggling with so much more than meets the eye.
No matter how hard I try, I cannot seem to avoid him, or his family.
When he’s back from his deployment, the need to resist him grows even stronger than ever.
Even though Mason and his son look like everything I’ve ever wanted, I need to remember a family isn’t in the cards for me.
I need Mia Hatton.
I can’t ignore how beautiful she is, how outgoing, and caring. She’s the opposite of any woman I’ve been with. And there are half a dozen reasons why we probably shouldn’t be together.
Even when I’m flying fighter jets half a world away, I can forget about everything except Mia, who keeps inserting herself into my life with her messages, kind words, and updates from home. I need to detach but she won’t let me.
Can I convince her that she is worthy of love and this whole time she’s just been looking for that love in all the wrong places?
