He’ll bring her to her knees.

Bartender Mackenzie Ellinsworth has always gone it alone. So when she has a chance to open her own bar and restaurant, she’s got a plan for how it should go. Not in that plan: a ripped and rugged playboy stepping in to take over. Mack doesn’t do players, and she doesn’t do one-night stands. If Connor wants to work with Mack, he’s going to have to keep his strong, sexy hands to himself.

Connor Branding is determined to prove he’s not the directionless playboy Mack thinks. But opening a place together causes more problems than it solves. The two of them can’t agree on anything—except how scorching hot their chemistry is. Connor may be ready to indulge every desire Mack’s been denying herself…but turning business into pleasure is likely to get him burned.


Free Books. AND PIE!


Do you like free books? Do you like pie? Who am I kidding, clearly the answer is YES! Well, you’re in luck, because this month, you can have both!

November is barely underway and it’s already overwhelming. The election. The sugar coma from Halloween. Thanksgiving on the horizon.

fvpl-pinterest-3_handsThat’s why I’m participating in an InstaFreebie bundle with 12 incredible authors. We’re calling it Forget politics, #voteforlove. Because everyone could use an escape into a good read—plus a pleasure pairing guide curated by Bawdy Bookworms, which pairs romance novels with sexy surprises in a subscription box.

All of these books are FREE until Nov 12. You might already have my novelette, “Blackberries in the Morning,” which you can also get by signing up for my newsletter here. But if you don’t, you can download it now. The story is a little naughty, so it comes with a recipe for blackberry pie at the end to keep things sweet!

To get the other stories, click on the covers below and you’ll be taken to the InstaFreebie link where you can pick which format you want to download. All you have to do is sign up for the author’s newsletters, which I think is a pretty good deal! There’s something for everyone, with different genres of romance and heat levels represented. I know what I’m doing to kick off November—downloading all these free books and making sure to #voteforlove!

Sam grabbed his hand. “I thought you had some place to be, Coach.”

“I can be late,” he murmured, his lips brushed against hers.

“Something tells me you’re never late.”

“That’s why I get a pass today.”

Sam shook her head, pushing him away. “The patrol guys will talk.”

“They always talk.”

“The girls on the team will talk.”

“They talk even more.”

“This is what happens when you get so focused on what’s in front of you.”

“Mmm, like Sam.”

She tasted like winter itself, the cold of her lips, the warmth of her tongue.
