Stick and Ball
Ashley Miller left behind her horse farm in Montana to escape her violent, controlling husband and took a Greyhound bus to paradise. But she’s an inexperienced country girl- not equipped for the kind of games people play in the wealthy enclave of Montecito, California. Soon, Ashley meets her Prince Charming. But he’s a hot to trot Argentine polo champion who is by all accounts a player in both senses of the word. Could Ashley be blamed for deciding to play it safe with another guy, one who seems like a real gentleman? Too bad he’s an actual prince. Too bad he’s very married. Too bad Ashley doesn’t realize that- until it’s too late.
Horses, polo, passion, a gorgeous setting, and royals behaving badly…this book has them in spades.
Villa For Rent on St Barts
When Brooke finds out her husband has not only been cheating on her, but has spent all their money, she has limited options. Deciding to stay behind on the chic tropical island of St Barts, where she owns a luxurious vacation home, seems like a no brainer. But she won’t be on vacation: Brooke needs to rent out the house and act as house manager and private chef to make ends meet. Between difficult clients and the psycho billionaire next door who will not hesitate to use illegal and dangerous tactics to buy the house out from under her, Brooke is having a tough time.
The one bright spot is Antoine, the local meat and fish purveyor, who is ever-helpful and oh so easy on the eyes. But why does he always seem to be around when there’s trouble?

Constance needs a change of tack before her career ends up dead in the water. When she’s assigned a challenging project in St Tropez in the winter, she dreads being cold, bored, and lonely. Except that Constance’s ex boyfriend, Lorenzo, AKA the man who broke her heart, just happens to be in town. Will Constance be able to navigate the most important project of her career, while trying to protect her heart from the man she’s still irresistibly drawn to?
