Annapolis Harbor Series
Each book brings you back to Annapolis, where the friendships are strong and the love stories beautiful.
Only with You
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?
Lost Without You
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.
Perfect for You
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙨 𝙖𝙨 𝙖 𝙗𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙢𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙨𝙚𝙚 𝙨𝙤 𝙢𝙪𝙘𝙝 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚...
One blind date changes everything. I was prepared for a crazed fan. But Dylan Gannon is far from that. She's a gorgeous, charismatic woman who always gets what she wants. This time, she wants me.
Thankfully, the date, a publicity stunt, is just for show. Dylan Gannon is the exact opposite of what I want. This woman craves attention, drawing people to her like a moth to a flame. And I have no intention of getting burned.
After all, I have a secret that I'll never reveal--not even to an irresistible woman like her.
Reid Everson is the perfect spokesman for my charity.
I’ll do anything to persuade the sexy football star. I will stroke his ego, flirt a little, and promise him good publicity. But, he’s nothing like the other men I’ve known.
Reid wants nothing to do with me. With his quiet and brooding focus on sports, he's a challenge I plan to win.
It's time for me to open up--and show him the real me. Despite our differences, he'll see I’m perfect for him.
Crazy for You
She’s living her dream, his job is to make it come true – but can one renovation change the future?
The job was to renovate a bed and breakfast, not to fall head over tool belt for the sexy proprietor and single mom. Juliana Breslin is sassy, witty, determined and has the two most amazing twin daughters. Two girls that have wrapped their way around all my fingers.
The only problem is -I don’t do relationships and I don’t like being tied down. She’s stubborn and feisty and it doesn’t make sense at all. My defenses were firmly in place but Juliana and her daughters have scaled the walls and landed firmly in my heart.
I’ll do anything for Juliana and her girls, except for being the man in her life.
When I finally waved goodbye to my cheating ex, I couldn’t wait to live my dream. Renovating a bed and breakfast with two girls is no easy task, especially after the first contractor ran off with my money leaving me literally in the trenches.
Nolan Morison was not what I had in mind when I hired on a new contractor. He’s stubborn, irritable and completely irresistible. I’ve fallen for the sawdust, tool belts and sexy scruff before…I won’t do it again.
The worst part (or best part) is that he’s drawn my shy daughter out of her shell when no one has managed that before.
But Nolan isn’t looking for a happily ever after, and I’m not willing to waste time on anything else.
Falling for You
He's off-limits, continually underestimates me, and yet… I can't ignore the attraction between us.
When I landed my dream job, I didn’t realize I’d be working with the one guy I’ve always avoided.
Caught off guard with a career-ending injury; he is the life and soul of every party, a likable, sociable guy on all accounts. His future relies on the success of the sports complex I’ve been hired to manage.
But…he doubts my capabilities from the get-go.
I’m tired of being underestimated, of having my capabilities judged by just my pretty face. This is my opportunity to prove everyone wrong, including Jonah.
I just never expected to fall for him, or to learn that Jonah isn’t the man he pretends to be.
Now I’m not sure if I can handle the truth.
It only takes one injury to ruin your career and I’m not even sure I still have one. Investing in a sports complex made sense, until I realized that Callie was hired to manage it.
She’s young, beautiful and has an alluring innocence I have to remind myself to ignore. As my teammate’s personal assistant, Callie is off limits in more ways than one. She’s straight out of college, has no experience and now my future lies in her hands.
The closer we work together, the more I become captivated by her. She’s nothing like I expected her to be, but then we all hide behind masks.
If Callie learns the truth, both my future and my heart could be shattered.
Hooked on You
Prequel to Annapolis Harbor
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.
