Phoning It In
A sexy romantic comedy about breaking free of comfortable ruts.
Melinda can summarize her life in a few words: dead-end job, nonexistent love life, and a contentious relationship with her older sister—not exactly the rosy picture she had of life at 25.
When Benoit enters the picture, she falls hard. Gorgeous, funny, and smart, he’s everything she’s ever wanted in a man and more, but she can’t fathom that he could possibly want a plus-sized girl like her.
Tired of going through the motions, Melinda tries to find the courage to pursue her dream career, but working for a publishing company would mean moving away from everyone and everything she knows and loves. Is she content to remain in her comfortable rut, or is it time to strike out on her own and seize her chance at getting what she’s always wanted?
A sexy standalone companion to Phoning It In about figuring out what's important in life--with some help from Paris, pastry, and a sexy French scientist.
Louisa Carmichael has had it. After her boss gives a less qualified co-worker the promotion he’d promised Lou, she quits. But she only makes it as far as her car before panic sets in. At twenty-eight, her entire life has revolved around her career. Who is she without it? Fortunately, Lou has the perfect excuse to avoid facing that question: a trip to France for her best friend’s wedding.
There she meets Yves Betancourt, a handsome French man who happens to be the most off-putting person she’s ever met, even if she is fascinated by his passion for his work. One desperate, lonely night in Paris, she takes him up on his invitation to meet for a drink. When he offers to be her guide as she retraces the path her grandfather took during his post-World War II tour of Normandy, Lou throws caution to the wind, falling deeply under the spell of the French countryside, food, wine—and Yves.

Prejudice, Persuasion, and Sensibility
A sweet, clean new adult romance about mistaken first impressions.
Aminata’s big sister, Monique, is getting married in a Jane Austen-themed extravaganza. Though Ami thinks the theme is a bit over the top, what’s really getting to her is her fear of losing her close relationship with Monique. More than just a sister to her, Monique is her inspiration and best friend.
When Ami arrives in Traverse City for the wedding and finds that the obnoxious Dae Shin is also there, things go from bad to worse. It turns out Dae’s brother is the best man, and now Ami is stuck with Dae for the long weekend.
But are they worse? Dae may have acted like an insufferable jerk in the classes they shared, but away from campus she finds there’s more to him than she expected. In fact, it seems they have a lot in common.
Despite her initial misgivings, Ami’s intense dislike for Dae begins to fade. Is it possible that he’s a much greater guy than she’d given him credit for being—maybe even the kind of guy who’s perfect for her?
