The Woman He Married Review

Image
A story about marriage, family, and the silver lining that holds it all together. 

Once an aspiring young attorney, Josie looked forward to taking on the injustices of the world—one case at a time. Eleven years later, she’s a stay-at-home mom and battling demons that don’t require a law degree. Only keeping up pretenses proves more than she can bear when a bracelet that should have been hers shows up on the wrist of another woman. Her marriage slowly begins to unravel as an ex-lover comes back into her life. When he offers her the dreams she thought she’d lost, Josie must chose between the man she married and the one she let get away. 

John has always known exactly what he wanted. A career as a high-powered attorney, followed by the perfect family of six, and then elected public service. So it was no surprise that the first time he laid his eyes on Josie, he knew she was the one he’d share his dreams with. More than a decade, and one tragic miscalculation later, all he has worked for is…

Ascard power can strengthen, heal and create. It also has great potential to destroy, enough to topple entire governments.

For Hire: Fiancee

Eric Jansen was aware of the reputation he gained as a cold-hearted playboy. As a widower with a mysterious past marriage, work is his only solace...that is until the company investors threaten to pull out of the deal. With a new luxury hotel in Rio de Janeiro and a housing development for underprivileged families on the line, he needs a way to prove to the investors he is serious. The beautiful new photographer, Jayla Mitchelson, is perfectly outside of the media's eye. Not only will she help the deal, he just may find himself asking her to stay after the job is done.



Excerpt:
Jayla couldn't believe what she was hearing. Instead of her photography skills, she was being hired as a glorified fake girlfriend. Rage sluiced through her and she started pacing to help calm her down. “I don't believe this.”
“It would help me greatly.”
“Oh, it will? Tell me, Eric is that why you hired me? To just be some arm candy for you and f…

The Great Baby Caper Review

Image
The Great Baby Caper is a delightful romantic romp. Courtney Kelly was definitely going places. She had beauty and brains, talent and ambition. She was clearly on track to become the new CEO of Bootle's Baby Bower, the upscale string of baby boutiques owned by M. Billingham Bootle. Unfortunately, her eccentric employer had declared that the coveted promotion would go to whichever of his four candidates was first to accomplish his or her assigned task in the wacky scavenger hunt he'd devised -- and Courtney's task was to find the most eligible bachelor in the New Orleans French Quarter and marry him by morning. Finding a suitable matrimonial prize who was willing to pose as her fiancĂ© was a lot easier than Courtney expected -- but she was shocked and outraged when her wacky boss made it clear he expected her to go through with an actual wedding. And when she discovered she'd been tricked into selecting M. Billingham Bootle's all-too-handsome, charming, and sexy gran…
