But living as man and wife, with the birth of her child imminent, Johnny suddenly wanted the sham marriage to be a real one.

Ann’s touch drove him wild, and she was much better at being a wife and mother than he’d ever expected.

Then Charity came to her senses. She had to get rid of Garrett before he figured out that the result of that star-studded night they’d once shared was now eight years old—and wanted a father!

 5-Star Review – You will enjoy the humor and the romance — and maybe even laugh out loud at Rambo the lovably funny hog.

When her hotel mixes up her reservations and puts her in the same room as sexy rancher Holt Janson, Hannah considers her options. Here she is footloose and fancy-free in the big city. And fate has given her an honest-to-goodness sex symbol for a roommate. Thank you!

Except, Holt decides to be responsible and not seduce her. Great, just great.

There was only one answer. Hannah Jansen needed to become a bad girl….

4-Star Review – This book was about a girl who falls in love with this cowboy guy. It’s really funny but it is also really sweet. you should read it.







Only Bachelors Need Apply, Silhouette Romance, 8/97

Single mom Joanna Greer knew all the “mommy” tricks: kiss boo-boos, fix three squares a day…fuss, fuss, fuss. But when it came to acting as a father figure to her young son, she was desperately at a loss….

Then littleTylerstaked his claim on the handsome bachelor next door.

Kris Slavik didn’t know the first thing about fatherhood. His upbringing had been short on hugs, but long on expectations. Well, he’d earned his millions…several times over. Problem was, he had no one to share it with. Until a rambunctious kid and his beautiful mom had him tossing around footballs—and sizing very big diamond rings….

Courting Cupid, Love & Laughter,

Career-driven Blake Donovan planned to score big time at the annual management retreat and become the new V.P.

Then Eloise Periwinkle blew into the retreat on a breeze, knocking Blake right out of his polished wing tips. Who was this sweet, bumbling uninhibited beauty? And why was she playing Cupid for him and Margaret, his rival for the top job?

Suddenly Blake was a lovesick fool—for Eloise. She, however, was convinced she was the wrong woman for him.

But when Cupid strikes, even the most unlikely opposites can find their own happily ever after.

 5-Star Review – This book is as cute as Charlotte Maclay’s take on Cupids and love. I would recommend this book for some good, simple, comedy enjoyment.







Expecting at Christmas, Harlequin Silhouette Romance, 12/99

When lovely Loretta Santana signed on as Griffin Jones’s temporary butler, the wealthy playboy discovered he suddenly had a few unexpected problems. One: his petite new butler was a she. Two: she was pregnant. Three: she was eight months pregnant and soon to be a single mom….

All Loretta had wanted was to earn a month’s fair wages before her Christmas delivery arrived—until she fell for her debonair employer’s considerable charms. And it didn’t help that the wedding-wary bachelor’s protective instincts lurched into overdrive—but could Loretta convince the acting daddy-to-be to take on that role for a lifetime?

Julianne Olson had heard rumors of ghosts walking the halls of her grandmother’s Alpine castle. She shrugged them off…until the very real Erich Langlois woke her one night. He was dark and dangerous, sexier than any man she’d ever known. But what was he doing in her bedroom?

If the townspeople were to be believed, witchcraft ran in the Langlois family. As skeptical as she was, Julianne had to admit that when she was under the spell of Erich’s burning gaze, she could deny him nothing…even when she learned that he meant to claim the castle—and her—as his own.
