June First

Want to know what happens to a man who barely claws his way out of a tragedy, only to fall right into the arms of the one girl in the world he can never have?

Another tragedy, that's what.

When I was six years old, my father made a choice that altered the course of my entire life.
Because of what he did, the only girl I ever loved became the only girl I couldn’t have.

In a lot of ways, I did have her…
I had her first steps, her first words, her first smile. I had her milestones, her heartbreaks, her dreams. I had her heart so woven in with mine, I didn’t know where she ended, and I began.

Only, as the years pressed on, lines became blurred—and the blurrier the line, the easier it is to cross.

They say tragedy comes in threes.
For me, that was true.
The first one changed me, the second one broke me, and the third one healed me.

But at the center of all that tragedy… there is a love story.
And at the center of that love story,
There is June.




Surviving Monday might be the biggest accomplishment of their lives.

By 9:03 A.M. Monday, bank manager Indie Chase thinks her day can’t get worse. She’s dealt with spills, an ex-husband, and her preschooler on bank time.
She’s wrong, though.
In a matter of moments, that day becomes the stuff of nightmares.

Dax Reed is a reluctantly retired pro hockey player with a past he’d rather forget. He’s well on his way to doing so, on his way to Hawaii for a well-deserved vacation, when everything goes to hell.

Together, they’re caught in a robbery that’s going to take everything they have to survive.
It’s going to take trust.
It’s going to take strength.

It might even take … each other.

The Thorns Remain

The Thorns Remain

Hiding deep within the shadows of human nature, it smolders…
Only, for me, it was no longer a hibernating beast.
The day I discovered the wrongs committed against me, vengeance clawed its way right through me. The beast had emerged from its lair with a burning need to destroy the man who tore my marriage apart.
And now?
Now, it was my lifeline.
My dark lover.
My. Whole. Purpose.

They say it’s sweet in the end, and I believed them. I could almost taste that honey on my tongue, like a balm I needed to quell the bitterness.
But it was all a lie.
I was blindsided.
And not once did I think about who I might hurt along the way. I never considered the casualties that may fall across my path of destruction.
Revenge is not sweet. Retaliation does not end in reward.
Vengeance is not justice.
The promises whispered by that beast within?
They’re all hollow.
All it ever wanted was to be set free.
In the end, I never expected things to be worse than when it all began.
I never expected the wreckage left in my wake.

The Wrong Heart

When my husband died, he left my broken heart behind.

He left another heart behind, too—his.

I know it's wrong. I shouldn't be contacting the recipient of my husband's heart. I don't even expect him to reply...

But there's a desperate, twisted part of me that hopes he will.

No names.
No personal details.

Just a conversation.

The only thing I have left of my husband is inside him.

Still Beating

When Cora attends her sister’s birthday party, she expects at most a hangover or a walk of shame. She doesn’t anticipate a stolen wallet, leaving her stranded and dependent on Dean—her arch nemesis and ultimate thorn in her side.
And she really doesn’t anticipate waking up in shackles in a madman’s basement.
To make matters worse, Dean shares the space in his own set of chains.
After fifteen years of teasing, insults, and practical jokes, the ultimate joke seems to be on them. The two people who always thought they’d end up killing each other must now work together if they want to survive.
But Cora and Dean have no idea their abductor has a plan for them. A plan that will alter the course of their relationship, blur the line between hate and love, and shackle them together with far more than just chains.

When Chelsie’s skeletons break free of her closet and threaten more than just her life, but that of those she loves most, Noah is the last person she should be leaning on.
If only she could convince her heart.
