LOVE ON TAP
There’s a different rhythm to life in small-town Mill Pond, Indiana. And with the easy pace come friendships that are built to last and love that starts out on a slow simmer . . .
Charming boutiques, picturesque farms, and a growing foodie scene have turned Mill Pond into a tourist destination. And thanks to the culinary skills of Paula Hull, its beautiful rural resort is leading the way. The widowed mom left behind the stress of the New York City restaurant world to spend more time with her two young children. And now she’s ready to see if there’s more out there for her than being a chef and single parent . . .
Chase Atwood is the local good guy with a bad reputation. He’s a respected business owner and trusted friend, but the drop-dead gorgeous bar owner usually has women beating down his door—and Paula knows to keep her distance. His burgers and beer, on the other hand, are not off limits. But their mutual admiration is always on the back burner—until Chase turns up the heat. Soon he’s determined to prove to Paula that he’s the one key ingredient missing in her life…
LOVE & ROCKETS
Smart is the new sexy…
They say if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, but it’s not the sauce at The Pit BBQ that has Darla Kennet breaking a sweat. The sassy single mom has waited tables in Mobile for years to support herself and her daughter, Grace, and she’s never let anything get her rattled…until now. Somehow, handsome aerospace engineer Jake Dalton has gotten under her skin.
Although they went to school together, Jake doesn’t remember much about Darla. Back then the Brainiac future rocket scientist always had his head in a book. But now that a chance meeting has him helping Grace apply to space camp, he’s been pulled into Darla’s orbit. And it isn’t long before Jake and Darla have a heated meeting of their own celestial bodies. The trouble is, Jake wants more. Convincing cautious, fiercely independent Darla to trust him with her heart just may be his most challenging mission yet…
Love & Rockets
“What do you want from me?”
“What do I want from you?” he repeated, then gave a husky chuckle. “Where do I start?”
“I mean, what are you after? Me or Grace? Are you here to help her, or are you trying to get into my pants, because you wouldn’t be the first.” She launched her little salvo with raised brows.
Her temper flared. “What the hell is that supposed to mean?”
He gestured toward the living room. “Well, obviously I’m not the first, you have Grace. What I’m trying to figure out is why being here has to be an either-or thing. I’d assume the two of you are a package deal no matter what.”
Planting her hands on her hips, she thrust her chin into the air. “We are.” “There you go.”
She squinted at him, annoyed by his cavalier tone. “There I go what?” He exhaled long and loud, then closed the distance between them. Darla yelped a little when he pulled her flush against his body. Again. God, he was tall. And taut. She thought about running her hands all over him like she had earlier. But without the clothes. Apparently, he was thinking the same thing, because he shifted to bring their bodies into perfect alignment. Her breath caught and held when he lowered his head. His was warm and damp against her skin. She could almost taste a hint of the wine. She called on every ounce of her reserve not to purse her lips
in a silent plea.
“I want the package deal.”
The breath rushed from her lungs. His mouth was a surprise. Soft. Unspeakably soft. But the kiss was firm. Commanding. It took a few seconds for her brain to catch on, and the second she reacted, he pulled back.
