Day one in town proved one thing... I'm screwed.
Welcome to Mudville, home of KISSING BOOKS, a standalone small town, opposites attract, fish out of water romantic comedy with lots of kissing (and other things), a cocky farmer, a sassy misplaced heroine with too many animals, some crazy locals, a decades' old mystery, and a very happy ending for all of them!
The injury that could end his career in the SEALs.
The storm of the century that stranded him in Atlanta Airport.
The naked man he found on top of his girlfriend . . .
One thing was certain. Things couldn't get much worse. Then he met her.
Super stuck up.
Super engaged to be married...
It was just an odd job to tide him over while he waited to see if he'd heal enough to get back on the team. Close personal protection for a singer so famous even he'd heard of her. He was supposed to be her bodyguard. And guard her body he did. Day . . . and night. His new boss probably didn't have protection that close or that personal in mind.
He wasn't supposed to fall for her. Then again, she wasn't supposed to be so smart, and funny, and wounded, and in need of saving.
Now he has a decision to make. Quit the military career he'd worked half his life for and take the job as her permanent head of security, just to be near her. Forget about her and take any job his command would give him in his current broken condition. Or do the craziest thing of all. Confess his feelings and hope to make it work. With her. As a normal couple. A real couple, if that was even possible given who she was. It's an impossible decision, but he'll be damned if he'll let her stalker or his bullet make it for him.
He's become a beast.
Both fell from grace. Can a secret shadow organization help them rise from the ashes? Or is it all lies?
She was the sister of his ex-girlfriend. He never expected to see her again, especially not all grown up and standing in the Shaolin monastery where he went to hide from the world…and from himself.
She says she wants to save him. But why does she reek of CIA while claiming to work for an undisclosed organization that wants to hire him for a job that sounds like it could cost him what little is left of his soul? And why does he want her so badly?
Disappointment. Traitorous. Disloyal. Calvin Swenson Sr has called his son that and more since it finally sank in Cal wasn't going to follow in his footsteps. The old man had always said money can buy anything, but the billions weren't enough for Cal to trade in his freedom by joining the family business.
But now, like it or not, Cal had booked his flight from San Diego to New York, by way of Atlanta to go back home to the family compound where he'd always suspected the walls and gates were as much to keep him in as to keep the public out. But he's going back on his terms and for the only person who could have convinced him to set foot in his father's domain again—his grandmother.
One month's leave from the Navy. One last opportunity to rectify his only regret—leaving behind the woman who'd raised him. She was the one shining light in his childhood. The one who'd kept the home fires burning all these years… And the last person he'd ever expect to be a conniving, manipulative liar who would actually pretend to be dying just to get him home! But, apparently, that's exactly what she did.
So now what? He could leave. Go back to the team or take a much needed vacation. It would be what the old woman deserved for scaring him. Or maybe he should stick around. Find out why she was so desperate to get him back there.
It was a tough decision. Granny's hot live-in personal assistant might make it worth staying. Cal's amusement and satisfaction over his father's constant displeasure at his presence didn't hurt either. Then there was that other thing that had been nagging at the back of Cal's brain. He couldn't be a SEAL forever. Maybe there was something to be said for having a plan B. Even if that plan comes with a giant A-hole attached. And in spite of what his father says, he's not a quitter and he'll be damned before he went back to Coronado with his tail between his legs because he failed at the business his grandfather had founded. Cal made it through Hell Week and he'd make it through a hell month at the office with his father… or die trying.
Navy SEAL Clay "Dirtman" Hagan's retirement plans are simple. Buy the dilapidated beachfront cottage he found listed for a song, fix it up, and live out his days in solitude. Everything is set until an anonymous bidder drives up the price of his future paradise.
TV talk show host Tasha Jones is flying high, until one word—CANCELED—sends her crashing. Now she's looking to resurrect her career with a new home renovation show if they can get around the buyer standing in the way of the perfect property.
When the competition turns out to be the obnoxious a-hole from her embarrassing drunken one-night stand, the battle for the property really heats up as the insults—and the sparks—fly. The producer notices the chemistry between them and decides the viewers will too and "Hot House" is born.
If Clay agrees to have the self-centered star and her cameras in his house for the duration of the show, he walks away as the owner in the end. If Tasha can put up with living in the bungalow with the Neanderthal control-freak during the construction, she gets a hit show and her career back. Win-win.
It shouldn't be too hard since the director loves when they argue on camera, which is good since they agree on nothing. Well, almost nothing. They do both agree that they pretty much hate each other and neither one wants a repeat of their one night together . . . So why does it keep happening?
When the military makes Navy SEAL sniper Adam Nichols their sacrificial lamb just two years shy of his retirement, he has no more reason to follow their rules. So the offer the shadowy figure representing an undisclosed organization makes him looks pretty good.
In exchange for more money than he ever made working for the command that betrayed him, Adam is to use any means necessary to free an American woman held hostage in China, without backup and without causing an international incident in the process.
With the promise of possible redemption, in addition to his obsession with the intriguing damsel in distress who kicks his protective side into high gear, his choice is clear.
But who is the tawny-skinned, sophisticated, captive beauty in the photo who rouses feelings he's long denied? The impeccably-dressed, ebony-haired stranger with the intelligent yet secretive golden-brown eyes who seems so completely opposite from his own beastly rough nature.
He's to rescue her, and protect her, and nothing else. Easier said than done. And after he does free her, is he handing her over to the good guys, or the bad? Or, perhaps, she’s the one he should be worried about. He only knows one thing for certain—a SEAL who’s lost the ability to trust his gut instincts is, quite simply, lost.
And why is Cash interested in something more now when he never was before? That’s the most annoying, frustrating, exasperating, ridiculous part. It’s all because another guy asked me on a date.
No doubt about it, Cash Morgan is going to drive me insane, if I’m not already there. Because in the middle of my personal drama in what was formerly a non-existent love life is the fact something wonky is happening at my store. Things going missing. Things being moved.
My friend Harper thinks it’s a ghost. Our friend Bethany thinks I’m just forgetful.
I’m not sure what I think—about any of it. The strange happenings in my shop. My date with the hot deputy investigating the oddities in my store. And especially not Cash.
All I know is that with all the craziness that’s happened around Mudville over the past six months, starting with Harper moving to town and her discovery of all the town’s secrets stashed in Agnes’s attic, we’d all better start to expect the unexpected.
Welcome back to Mudville! If you read KISSING BOOKS, you've already met Red, the sweet and sassy red headed Main Street shop owner and Mudville native who befriends Harper, the city girl misplaced in a small town upstate.
RED HOT is a laugh-out-loud romp through the small town of Mudville featuring a love triangle one overworked shopkeeper never expected or wanted, a middle sibling who discovers he might possibly love someone else more than he loves himself, a mystery involving a very coveted missing cape, an estate sale full of clues, a surprise stranger—or two—no one saw coming, the quirky Mudville characters you’ve come to love, and some of the most adorable baby animals ever!
One Sweet Ride. . .Oh yeah. A single look at the leggy blonde in the stands and Tucker Jenkins is ready to buck all night long. It's time to forget all about his cheating ex and his usual hands off policy.
One Hot Night. . .Becca Hart is an East Coast professor. Not a buckle bunny. But no degree can prepare her for the moves of the sexy bull rider she hooks up with at her first rodeo. . .or the shock of finding him at her first Oklahoma State University staff meeting.
One Happy Ending. . .Tuck knows it's all about holding on, no matter how wild the ride. Now he just has to convince Becca that a rough start out of the chute doesn't mean they aren't a smokin' combination.
"Western romance heats up with Cat Johnson's enticing Oklahoma Nights series." ~ Vivian Arend New York Times bestselling author of the Six Pack Ranch series.
Stefan thought he knew pressure until he was coerced into doing a reality show that pairs Navy SEALs with civilians in a no-holds-barred contest. The biggest challenge turns out to be keeping his hands off Shelly, the sexy civilian he's been paired with. She's almost enough to make him not care about losing... if he can have her in the end.
Olivia Bennett left New York hoping to find answers, and maybe a little bit of revenge. What she didn’t expect was to run into cowboy Wyatt Wilder on the side of a Tennessee mountain when he saves her and her two friends from certain disaster.
He's powerful, rich and handsome. He’s also grumpy, self-important, overly proud and incapable of being polite. And, if she wants to be able to pay for the repairs on her wrecked RV, he’s also going to be her new boss.
She needs the temporary nanny position caring for his daughter, so she’d better toe the line, no matter how she feels about the man. And she has all the feels.
Wyatt pushes all her buttons—the good ones and the bad. Even with her usually sunshiny disposition, biting her tongue is not easy because this hot single dad is as frustrating as he is off-limits. So why does she still want to peel off his Wranglers?
Welcome to Bitter End, TN, a small town that is about to feel the heat. So are the men of the town’s founding family, the Wilder brothers. Because three broken-hearted women on the adventure of a lifetime stranded in the middle of nowhere can ignite plenty of passion… and maybe even spur these consummate bachelors into love.
