Two women with a fiery past discover paybacks can be hell...and just as hot.
Colby Dennis's first thought was to toss the invitation to her ten-year high school reunion into the garbage. After all, she spent most of her adult life trying to forget high school—more specifically, her tormentor Mackenzie Brandt. But then, maybe putting her old nemesis in her place is reason enough to show up. Unsuspecting Mackenzie has only one reason for attending the reunion: She wants to look into the eyes of the classmate responsible for getting her expelled weeks before her graduation...and apologize the best way she knows how. Revenge is most definitely not best served cold.
Two women find that creating a successful relationship rests in remembering the mistakes of the past.
Cees Bannigan has all the materials she needs to build a happy life—a successful home-improvement television show, a new house, and the attention of an intelligent and beautiful woman. So what is she doing at the hospital bedside of Arieanna Simons, the lover who abandoned her several months before? When she discovers what is behind Arieanna's precipitous withdrawal, Cees must decide if past betrayals can ever be forgiven, even for the promise that tomorrow might hold.
Following an assault, Emma Webster spends two years as a self-sentenced prisoner locked inside her condo, living a lonely but safe existence - at least she thought it was safe until the world outside her window goes still and silent.
Troy Nanson, a bicycle messenger, awakens in a hospital with no memory of how she got there or how long she lay unconscious. When her calls for help go unanswered, Troy dials 911, but no one answers. As Troy explores a silent city, her suspicions are confirmed - the rest of the world has fallen asleep, and nothing she does will wake them. Fear and desperation cause Troy's tenuous grip on reality to slip. She's ready to give up, until then she finds Emma.
Believing they are the only people awake in the entire world, two women who are as different from each other as they could possibly be, come to depend on one another for safety and sanity--and eventually, much more.
It should have been an average bust. Minimal trouble. Minimal backup.
When police detective Foster Everett witnesses the unspeakable, average becomes deadly. A cover-up ensues and Foster begins numbing herself with alcohol at a neighborhood bar. There she meets Riley Meideros, the one person strong enough to hear Foster's painful secret and not turn away. But like most secrets, Foster's refuse to stay hidden. And like even the most carefully built walls—walls that Riley effortlessly seems to breach—the barricades surrounding Foster soon begin to crumble. Fearing that she's put Riley in danger and fighting against the powerful attraction growing between them, Foster vows to uncover the truth. But someone is determined to keep the truth buried, even if it means silencing Foster and Riley permanently.
Kitty Kerr is a high-flying lawyer when her career plans are derailed by the luscious blackberries from Lucy Shen’s Country Mouse Farms. Kitty can’t get enough of the fruit, or of Lucy. Suddenly, she’s wanting things she never dared to want—Lucy, and the life on the farm. But how will being an artisan cook/farmer fit with her legal ambitions and city habits?
Between her beautiful farm and her sculpture, Lucy’s life is set. Falling for a big city lawyer is not part of the plan. Even as Kitty helps make her dreams of spotlighting her farm’s produce in restaurants a reality, Lucy’s terrified that she and the farm aren’t enough to keep Kitty interested in love and the simpler things in life.
Pulled in two different directions, will the city kitty and country mouse be able to make it work?
