Nor would I be staring into the muddy eyes of a viking-sized man that's telling me everything I'm doing wrong—as if he knows so much about business in a small mountain town. 

Maverick: This girl is drowning. She might have eyes like glacier pools and hair so black it's glossy, but that doesn't mean she knows how to run a coffee shop. She's drowning in more than debt, interest, and credit card payments. She'll never make it. But I kind of want her to.

JJ: Life has gotten kind of stagnant. Then Lizbeth literally crashes into my world with her ideas of storybook romance and love. Her silky red hair drives me to distraction.

Romance does not save the world. I’ve been there. Failed at that. Except Lizbeth is determined to help me see the light of love. I’m not about to let her win our little challenge, because I know the truth. I’ll show her that romance is a construct, and love hurts.

Being Mark Bailey’s accountant isn’t easy. When Mark helps me escape into his mountain world for a while, the very last thing I expect is to fall hard. Now ghosts from my past are following and I’m not sure there’s a happy-ever-after waiting at the end of this nightmare.

12. Fighter

Book 4 in the Coffee Shop Series. Coming out June 7, 2021!


Serafina: The small mountain town of Pineville had my heart from the moment I stepped in it. Maybe Benjamin Mercedy did too. Too bad he’s way out of my league.

When things escalate to an unsafe situation at home, I have no choice but to ask the town MMA fighter to teach me self-defense.

When we’re together on that mat, there’s a whole lot more spark and bang than I thought. And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say Benjamin Mercedy is hiding some ghosts in his gloves. Ghosts I’m ready to help tame.

Benjamin: What am I supposed to do? Serafina shows up with a fat lip and a request for a self-defense class. Of course I’ll help her.

Then everything changes. She is bright-eyed brilliance in my cold, uncertain world. I can’t stay away, even if I wanted to. Serafina has her own devils to deal with, and it’s been a while since I’d had a good fight.

Ellie isn’t giving ground, and I can’t say that I blame her. But this time I’m not giving up. She thinks we’re done? That we can never go back and never fix what happened?

She’s wrong. I’m determined to make up for my mistakes and show her that we’ve only just begun.
