There are only 10 days left to get HERO at only $3.99 before it increases in price.

Hero 2 copy 2

The emotional and unforgettable new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series.

Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that she and her mother weren’t his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets,. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.

Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.

Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they’re on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again…

Valentine: An On Dublin Street Novella

Braden’s eyes narrowed at my unromantic demand and he started walking, moving me backward toward the bed. “I was going to make love to you but if you just want to get straight to the point that’s your call.”
“Really?” I said, my heart pounding with excitement. “I promise you can make love to me after.”
My husband closed his eyes, a smile kicking up the corner of his mouth as he shook his head. “Almost twelve years of marriage and she’s still unlike any woman I’ve ever known.”
“She’s still in the room.” I got up on the bed and when he opened his eyes I grinned at him. “I’m ready.”
He smirked. “You look like a kid at Christmas.”
My gaze dropped to his straining zipper. “And I know which present I want to open first.”
Braden burst out laughing and reached out to wrap his hand around my ankle. Gently he pulled me down the bed toward him. I leaned back on my hands and tilted my head back, as his mouth descended toward mine.

I promise to post VALENTINE: AN ON DUBLIN STREET NOVELLA (Includes six sexy short stories, one for each ODS couple so far), FREE online on Valentine’s Day as a thank you to readers if they help us reach our preorder target for my upcoming standalone adult contemporary romance HERO. Let’s give the preorders a big push, and please share if you can 🙂
