After a decade of travel and living out of a suitcase, Emmalynne Peters is fed up with the world of modeling.
Her heart calls her in another direction and she finds herself in the town of Longreach, Queensland. A land baked dry under relentless summer suns, washed away in raging floods, and burned to a crisp by savage fires.
Where men were bred tough, had work roughened hands and big hearts – men like Nick Johnson.
So, on March 3rd, she packed her bags for the last time and walked away – straight into the Australian outback, a place where she’d always thought she belonged.
Has Emmalynne not only found the land she’d been pining for, but also the love of her life? Would the month of March turn out to be one she would never forget?
Come and discover the rugged outback and the people who give it beauty and life.
Jasper Kendrick… British, brooding, and dark, he hid his past when he came to work for Virgin Islands Personal Fitness. As the face of VIP, he keeps his bad-boy image buried beneath expensive designer suits and with copious amounts of sex. But even his wealth and good looks can’t drive out the demons that haunt him.
He couldn’t save them, but he can save her. Even so, it just maybe her that saves him.
Daisy Jones… Despite being born in Sweet Birch Hollow, the backwoods of Tennessee, she is a gifted country girl with formal degrees in all aspects of accounting. After becoming an FBI informant, she has to hide from her criminal husband, who wants her dead. On the run, she takes the position as a financial executive at VIP.
Her first meeting with Jasper is anything but cordial. But when the cold, mysterious man offers his protection, she can’t refuse, and when he all but moves her into his home—
It seems there may be more than a war brewing on the horizon.
It’s Roan O’Shea’s world and we’re just here for the ride. And what a ride it is…
After a lifetime of living in fear (and by other people’s rules), Roan’s determined to use his ill-gotten talents and money to turn the quaint, quiet town of Sanctuary Mills into his own little slice of heaven. Living under the alias Flynn Gallagher, Roan is on a mission to undo the evil of his past, and win the hearts of his new neighbors, by spreading his own brand of joy and light. But, just when Roan thinks he’s pulled off the ultimate con, an FBI agent, a murder, and a mystery threaten to expose his past and his intricate web of identities and secrets.
It takes a special breed of criminal, and a massive set of steel-plated testicles, to pull off a Ponzi scheme targeting organized crime’s heaviest hitters. Agent Sherman Mathis has spent months hunting for Cillian McGregor, and every lead has been a dead end. Except Flynn Gallagher. The jet-setting wine enthusiast and blogger is the only victim of McGregor’s baffling scam who isn’t dead, in jail, or slammed a door in Sherman’s face, but he’s not the perfect source our agent was hoping for, once they finally meet. Sherman’s hopes for a lead vanish immediately and he begins to suspect Flynn is hiding something deeper and bigger than McGregor.
A small town like Sanctuary Mills should be child’s play for a master strategist and showman like Roan, but he learns the stakes are higher when his heart starts calling the shots. This time, he’s got his sights set on the ultimate prize and Roan won’t rest until he’s won Sherman’s trust, and his heart. He’s just got to solve a murder, come clean, and flip a Federal Agent.

Not a place people dreamed of moving to.
More like a place people escaped from.
Known for its barren desert and the state’s largest prison, it had been home to my family for generations. Now the town’s name is a curse to them. And yet I’ve always wondered about it.
By the time I finished college I had big plans.
I was going to pack up and move to Emblem. I would teach at Emblem High. I would see past the crime and poverty that the town was infamous for. I would make a difference.
Tristan Mulligan never figured into my plans at all.
He was a small time criminal with a bad attitude who’d never bothered to graduate from high school. Worse, he didn’t seem interested in changing any of that. He was also the sexiest guy I’d ever laid eyes on.
I knew better than to start something with him. I did it anyway.
Tristan might break my heart. He might shatter my future. And there’s something dangerously explosive about the way we are together.
You can warn me about him all you want.
Everyone else has.
I haven’t listened yet. And I never will.
Whether I’m ready to admit it or not, I’m already his.
Eighteen years ago, Charlotte Denver left the quaint country town of Holbrook after a tragic accident. Now, she’s back in town to renovate her old family home, which will feature in the magazine where she’s employed as a journalist. Making the rundown house sellable will allow Charlotte to sever all ties with her tragic past and finally move forward with her life. That is until the one person she’d spent all these years trying to forget is contracted by her magazine’s editor to help her complete the job.
Will Beckett is no longer the twelve-year-old kid who used to play practical jokes on her, tease her and make her belly laugh. Now he’s a ruggedly handsome, sweet talking, successful builder. Despite Will’s wholesome country charm and sexy smile that makes Charlotte’s heart skip a beat, she’s determined to concentrate on the job at hand and protect her heart at all costs.
Will never thought he would see his best friend again, but now she’s back, as stubborn and strong-willed as ever. Her return reminds him all over again of everything she lost because of him, and he desperately wants her forgiveness. As they reacquaint with each other, Will becomes just as determined to reunite their friendship, and he’s set to win her heart.
Can Will break through Charlotte’s wall of defense or will his heart be broken again?
Beauty that close mixed with such turmoil was a cocktail of enriched poison—I wanted to drink it anyway…
Things with Cade didn’t start that way. They weren’t that easy, and they weren’t that smooth, but I assure you, some of the best love stories didn’t start out with ease and without bumps. How can anything that’s solid be simple? Cade and I both needed a solid ground. We’d earned it.
This is the story of how I, Bray Gideon, Los Angeles transplant, lost soul, ran away to her mother’s hometown of Well Water, Kentucky, and discovered how love could heal the wounds of the past and strengthen the hope of my future.
This is the story of Cade Montgomery, a man who’d ran for so long all it took was one night with the right woman to set his demons free. And boy, did those demons hurt. They got in the way and they held his happiness over his head and mocked his scars.
“Stay all night,” were the words echoing from her lips as I slid from the bed like the scumbag I am.
My name is Tobias Roman Jefferson. I’m a college drop-out fresh from living on my buddies’ couch and nowhere near worthy enough for the likes of Janie Lynn Francis—the hottest girl in Sugarcreek, Texas. Who also happens to be the woman I’ve been in love with for the last nineteen years.
When one stormy night we’re left stranded in my old cabin in the woods, we give to our passion. Only to repeat ourselves the next night…at her house. When she whispers her plea, I escape from her bed as fast as I possibly can.
How can I, the town screw-up, deem myself worthy of the town’s one-time homecoming queen?
💚🔥💚🔥💚🔥Welcome to Mustang Prairie💚🔥💚🔥💚
I just wanted to belong…
Sadie had never belonged anywhere other than on stage. A soulful singer and musician, she left home at a young age and never looked back. No one missed her anyhow. Traveling the country with one no good boyfriend or another for work, Sadie settled in New Orleans until another d-bag boyfriend decided she wasn’t enough…and the slutty new bartender was.
She left for Mustang Prairie and the open arms of her half-sister Amelia…or so she thought
I just wanted to protect her…
Dylan Parker was retired at the ripe old age of 34. After catching a serial killer who’d tortured Chicago for a decade, he was ready to turn in his homicide detective’s shield.
Needing distance from his high society parents and their social climbing friends he packed up his truck and bought a bar in Mustang Prairie. Getting reacquainted with small town life would be an adjustment…until he met a copper haired amazon with a voice like warm honey.
Sadie was everything he wanted; a friend, a devil’s advocate, a sister, and a confidante. Theirs was a deeply satisfying friendship so Sadie and Dylan fought their mutual attraction.
Can Sadie & Dylan admit that their friendship feels more like love?
Everyone in Fate, Texas knows that Bluebell Carter has always been a little bit crazy. There was that time she colored her hair pink and the time she keyed her boyfriend’s car not to mention how she up and left town and her daddy in the dust ten years ago. Rolling back home in an ugly orange bridesmaid dress was not the reappearance she’d ever planned to make and staying in town was the last thing she ever thought possible. Then again, being in Texas does crazy things to her brain (maybe it’s the heat?) because before she can say “bless your heart” she finds herself tangled up with a handsome, hard-muscled cowboy.
Zach West earned his hard body the old fashioned way – lots of hard work on hard Texas land. He’s spent his life playing the role of responsible West brother, the oldest, the protector and guardian. His father’s death left him to care for two younger brothers, a grieving mother and a ranch. He’s had enough of caring for other people to last a lifetime and zero plans to add a woman to that list but Bluebell has a way of driving him nuts that’s impossible to resist. He dreams about her long blonde hair and even longer legs. She’s pretty enough to drive a man to drink, to sin… but to love? Now that’s just crazy.
Okay let me just start by saying that I LOVED Crazy Little Thing Called Love. A lot. I read a ton of books and I like a lot of them but this was fun and sweet, hot and heartbreaking. It’s what a romance novel should be.
Blue was incredible. Doing her own thing even while she battled feelings of abandonment and being unloveable. She was strong and brave, not letting her issues get in her way. Mostly. And Zach, sweet baby J he was all MAN. I loved him from the first scene and that never let up, which is rare because I’m usually Team Heroine.
The chemistry between Blue and Zach was off the chart and not just the sexual chemistry. When they were together, bantering and bickering, I smiled as I read those scenes and now I’m jogging my memory to see if I’ve read anything else by Jess Bryant because I really enjoyed reading Crazy Little Thing Called Love.
Is there a Riley & Maddie story in the making or…??
My Life of Crime, Murder, Missing People and such! Above all else, never forget the victim, that the victim lived, had a life and was loved. The victim and their loved ones deserve justice, as does society.
