book 2



Life and love are always better at the beach…


Natalie Richards is a business student/bartender who’s seen it all. Making ends meet by working at an upscale San Diego restaurant, Natalie’s shifts are spent slinging drinks to players who are all over one woman one night, and a different pretty face the next, leading her to give up on the ideas of love and commitment.

Sportswriter Sean Cartwright is a man who’s been burned only once, but it was bad enough to leave a lasting mark. Still, he knows a good thing when he sees it, and he’s not about to back down from a challenge…or a captivating woman. Especially when she’s the only woman he wants in his bed.

Natalie’s friends thought all she needed was a little luck. Turns out what she really needed was a man determined enough to break through her defenses so she could let him in. A mouthwatering alpha male who’s so much more than what he seems…and one who will do whatever it takes to keep his word.

book 3




Life and love are always better at the beach…


Karin Riley is a single mom who, after an ugly divorce, has been happy to take a break from men altogether. But from the moment she first meets the gorgeous Paul Cartwright, she can’t get him out of her head. He’s tall, ripped…and has the sexiest freaking smile she’s ever seen. And despite his reputation as a man who doesn’t do “serious relationships,” Karin can’t help but say yes when the unbelievable happens and the irresistible homicide detective actually asks her out.

Paul Cartwright is a hard-nosed cop who’s always put his work first and everything else second, including women. Though he’s drawn to Karin from the instant he sets eyes on her, it’s clear she isn’t a hook-up kind of woman, and his past has taught him that’s all he’s cut out for. But she’s his brother’s neighbor and friend, which means they see each other often. And each time they hang out together, Paul only wants her more, until fate finally persuades him to stop fighting the inevitable.

Still, despite the best of intentions, things don’t always go as planned. After life deals Paul an unexpected blow and he ruins his shot with Karin, it’s obvious she won’t be giving him a second chance. But he’s determined to earn her trust again…and get that “re-do” that he wants so badly—even if it means letting go of his emotional lockdown. Karin Riley owns him, heart and soul, and Paul’s ready to do whatever it takes to win her back…and make her his.
