One summer in California…A sweet job assignment where I can meet new people and enjoy myself…Along comes Cara. It’ll be a fun, carefree summer, no strings attached…I won’t fall for this beautiful single mother…These are the lies I told myself until they became truths I didn’t want to accept. Truths I needed desperately to hold onto once I was told I was being sent overseas. Until one disastrous day that changed my life forever.

Army Sergeant Riley Forrester, desperate to get out of his Colorado civilian job and back into the uniform, jumps at the chance to take a summer-long TDY assignment in California. Young and newly divorced himself, he looks forward to spending a summer of both work and play. What he wasn’t expecting was to not only fall for a beautiful single mother named Cara Reid, whose green eyes have him completely addicted at first glance, but to also receive orders that take him well outside the country. While Riley knows he has to leave Cara behind, he tells himself their fling is just for the summer and he’ll let her go once he leaves so she can move on with her life. But Cara wouldn’t be forgotten that easily. She had seeped her way into his dreams and his heart, and breaking his addiction to her mind and body after things go horribly wrong on his deployment will be the hardest thing he’ll ever be ever called to do.

PLAYING THE FIELD - BOOK 3

The search for love…
A sordid past…
Starting over…

I’ve finally graduated from college and am excited to begin my dream career in law enforcement. After the final betrayal and heartbreak of my college boyfriend, I’m moving back home with a firm plan in place for my life.

However, the life I had carefully mapped out for myself took a serious turn. I now find that I not only have to be strong for myself, but for the daughter who hadn’t been part of my plans. Determined to still believe in true love, life throws me a wicked curveball. When I meet Jace Lawless, a hot minor league baseball player, those aqua eyes and big dimple have me unraveling my carefully laid plans. A man with a secret he’s hiding from me—a secret I’m determined to find out before I let myself or my little girl get tangled with him any further.

A minor league baseball career…
The Marine Corps Reserves…
My new startup business…

I’ve been called an overachiever on more than one occasion. After serving my country in the Marines, and then receiving my college degree, I was picked up by a minor league baseball team, all while continuing my service in the Reserves.

When a beautiful, breathtaking single mother named Miranda Cates walks into my life, my instant attraction to her takes me by surprise. Her vague past and beautiful little girl are the conundrum that both confuses and fascinates me, and I can think of nothing but them.

Miranda doesn’t know of my most proudest achievement—my time in the Marines. I want to tell her, but her past has made her refuse to date military men, so when I can’t bring myself to tell her I’m still in the Reserves, that soon becomes my biggest regret. Am I going to lose her forever once she finds out?
