A Texas-size pregnancy surprise!

Cecelia Morgan needs to take her business to the next level, and decorating the new luxury resort in Royal, Texas, is just the ticket. But at the meeting to pitch her designs, she comes face-to-face with Deacon Chase, her former flame from the wrong side of the tracks who grew up to be a billionaire hotelier. Turns out he's the silent partner in this project. Their chemistry is off the charts. Too bad she's spoken for.

But when the blackmailer terrorizing the Texas Cattleman's Club targets Cecelia, revealing a past secret that ruins her present engagement, she turns to Deacon for comfort…only to soon be expecting!

The ultimate in reunited love! I didn’t think it was possible for me to like Cecelia after how mean and uptight she and her “mean girl clique” were in a previous book in the series, but Andrea Laurence performed a miracle and made her likable! Not only did I understand her attitude, but I even pulled for her to win her guy.  Great characters, a sweet reunion and a happily-ever-after with all the feels!

Cecelia Morgan is crossing her fingers that the expansion she wants to happen with her successful business will work out. She’s putting her all into this presentation to decorate the new luxury hotel in Royal, Texas, The Bellamy Hotel. When she walks into the meeting to present her bid, she’s sure she’s about to be laughed out of the room though, when she finds out the silent partner in the hotel is none other than the high school boyfriend she dumped years ago.

Billionaire Deacon Chase has come a long way from when he was the boy from the wrong-side of town dating the rich, popular girl in school. He dearly loved her, and even though it’s been many years and he’s had a good life since, he’s never forgotten her or the future they had planned together. When the blackmailer targeting the Texas Cattleman’s Club sets their sights on Cecelia, will he be able to help rescue her from becoming the talk of the town?

My sweet, sexy Penny has a dark side. Just like me.
I will have her. And then I will lose her, and suffer a lifetime of regret.

Rampage. Everyone loves him. He is Redemption's top heavyweight fighter and the biggest gossip in the gym. But he isn't the teddy bear everyone thinks he is. He's hiding a dark secret-and he hates himself for it.

Twice a week, Rampage transforms into Master Jack, a notorious dom only the most hard-core submissives will play with. How can he-a Southern gentleman, bred to respect and protect women-want to dominate them?

But Penny Worthington wants him. Beneath her pearls, kitten heels, and prim British exterior beats a tortured heart...Master Jack is the only one who can set her free.

An explosive delve through dark secrets and intense desires to find their soul mate! Fun characters and hot sex help carry this book as the plot dips and recovers throughout with periods of dragging only to come back to an exciting pivot. Overall a satisfying read with a happy ending.

Jack “Rampage” Caldwell is just getting his MMA career to the peak he has wanted for a long time when he can’t seem to keep his mind free of Pen. He’s not good for her and no matter how much his heart races when she’s near, there’s no way he can answer the pull he sees in her eyes. He has secrets that he’s not proud of … he can’t pull her down with him!

British born Penny Worthington puts off the air of being proper, but has dark secrets and desires hidden beneath the surface. She sees a kindred spirit hiding beneath the southern gentleman facade that the public sees of Jack. Can she bring herself to reach out and grab what she wants most in life … even though she knows he deserves better?
