The embarrassment of being the only unkissed girl in high school is something Sandy Cardington refuses to accept. The first kiss project is her foolproof plan to finally get rid of the status at her 17th birthday party, while her parents are out of town.
With several kissable boys on her guest list, this should be a walk in the park. But she didn’t count on her older brother returning from college and throwing a wrench into her plans. To make matters even more complicated, he has a friend in tow, and the cute hockey player stirs unexpected butterflies in her stomach every time their paths cross.
While Sandy moves heaven and earth to make her party and project come true, it looks as if Thane Griffyn has his own plans to teach her the real meaning of a first kiss…
THE IMPOSSIBLE BET, Fall For Me #1
Three kisses. Two of which must be initiated by the girl—a girl my friends select for me. I have just under two weeks.
If I win, I get the coveted role of Tristan in a stage production.
If I lose, I’m still in the play…in the worst possible way. Playing Isolde in lacy underwear is something I may never live down!
The bet should be a piece of cake—until my friends pick my conquest. My quirky new neighbor, Pippi Longstocking in Pink. WTF?!
Oh, and did I mention I’m not allowed to speak to her? At. All.
TAMING CHLOE SUMMERS, Fall For Me #2
When a wolf and a tiger are playing in the woods…
I should be on a plane to London, heading into an epic second year of college. Instead, I’m stuck on Frog Pond Mountain, tasked with supervising a horde of pubescent teens, all because I had some minor run-ins with the law.
But I came here with a plan: next weekend, I’m escaping from the boondocks and swindling my way back into civilization. Unfortunately, my brilliant plan B couldn’t foresee one small, pretty hot detail: Justin Andrews, alpha to the wolves …
UNFAIR LOVE, Crushed Hearts #1
My world shattered when I met my match.
I pride myself on keeping control of everything. Always. My only weakness? Reckless challenges.
After losing my car to the new street racer in town, Sebastian gives me a chance to get it back. His condition: two hours in my playroom. No safewords allowed.
While I only ever do girls in there, I accept. And when he kisses me, I reach my fucking limits.
Once in a lifetime, you meet a unicorn.
Raffael is pure Nordic ice. Controlled. Determined. And drop-dead gorgeous.
Winning his car was a lucky strike. Winning his heart when he’s so afraid of the truth, turns out to be the hardest challenge I’ve ever raced to complete.
BROKEN DAWN, Crushed Hearts #2
The rules in Raff’s playroom allow me to get into his pants. But breaking Titanium is so much harder.
After Raffael stuns me speechless in the club, it’s time to change the rules of our game a bit. He gets to decide when he’s ready to kiss me. But everything else will be my decision from now on.
Sebastian is the most dangerous dare I’ve ever had to deal with.
His touch springs the chains from a passion I didn’t know was bound inside of me. Nothing has ever felt so forbidden…and yet so good at the same time.
My world comes unhinged.
And I don’t know how to put it to rights again. Or if I even want to…
AWAKING TRUST, Crushed Hearts #3
Sebastian came into my life in small, intense doses. Until I was addicted.
Now, breaking that addiction hurts worse than anything I’ve ever gone through before. I no longer know who I am, who I was, or even who I want to be. My world is shattered like the shards of my broken mirror. And seeing a bit of myself in all of those pieces, I know I’ll never be whole again. Not without him.
Raffael doesn’t believe in change. In possibilities. In us.
My heart bleeds as I walk away, even though it was necessary. But sometimes all it takes is one glance over your shoulder to realize that you can’t stop fighting just yet. That maybe the battle is worth it. It’s when you see the love of your life looking after you…breathless.
PLAY WITH ME, Grover Beach Players #1
What if you had to do the one thing you hated most to get the guy you loved to notice you?
Ryan Hunter’s parties are legend. And tonight she’s going to be there.
Lisa Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she’s a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Lisa craves, she’s just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she’s prepared to play ball to get her man.
The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school… Ryan Hunter.
RYAN HUNTER, Grover Beach Players #2
Ryan Hunter kissed more girls than he cares to remember. But the only one he ever wanted is in love with his best friend.
Watching Lisa Matthews’ obsession with Tony Mitchell is a torture Ryan conceals from everyone. Until after a five-week soccer camp, where Tony gets involved with someone else, things suddenly take a different turn. Ryan knows if he doesn’t make a move now and grab his chance, he might never get another.
Asked by Tony to distract Lisa, Ryan is only too happy. He subtly seduces her first into his soccer team and later on to his party. He does all in his power to make her see that he’s not just an insufferable playboy but a guy who really cares about her. Some one-on-one soccer training, a passionate kiss — things seem to be going the way he wants. Except Ryan didn’t reckon on his best friend showing up at the worst possible moment and destroying everything…
T IS FOR…, Grover Beach Players #3
“I don’t know what’s currently going on in Anthony Mitchell’s mind, but you’re definitely taking up a lot of space in there.”
Life isn’t easy for Samantha Summers, daughter of an army general. Moving from one continent to another every other year helps a teenage girl learn 4 different languages in record time. But it’s also killing her social life. And when a totally hot guy in her new hometown gives her hell, because she’s the cousin of a girl he once dated and who then spurned him, the prospect of the coming school year makes Sam want to call it quits.
There’s just one thing even more unnerving than all that put together. For some strange reason, she can’t seem to stop daydreaming about this impossible guy.
DATING TROUBLE, Grover Beach Players #4
Susan wants Ethan, and Chris wants Susan.
Drawn to Ethan and intrigued by Chris, Susan Miller finds herself caught between identical twin brothers at her school. When both of them start wooing her at the same time, she only has to take her pick. Right? Wrong! Ethan is reluctant to kiss her, and Chris wants her for the completely wrong reasons.
Nothing like his obliging and sweet brother, Chris Donovan has trouble written all over him. He changes girls like other guys change t-shirts, and the next trophy on his little list is Susan. That’s the last thing she wants, yet she finds herself responding to all the goodnight texts and other cheeky messages Chris sends. The guy has a way of getting under her skin like no one ever has before.
How long will it be until Susan falls for his smooth charm and gets herself into more trouble than she can possibly handle? And where does that leave Ethan?
THE TROUBLE WITH DATING SUE, Grover Beach Players #5
“When hell freezes over!”
Chris Donovan can’t believe that Susan Miller just brushed him off like a fly in midsummer. He certainly wasn’t looking for a girlfriend when he followed her into detention. All he wanted was to show this little smart-mouth that no girl can resist his charm when he decides to woo.
It’s a plan that thoroughly backfires.
No matter what Chris does to crack through the snappy nerd’s barriers, she blocks his every advance. Worse, she only seems interested in his quiet twin brother, Ethan. But Chris never walks away from a challenge, and Sue’s stubborn resistance only makes him try harder.
To put a hickey on her delectable neck during a friendly game of soccer is one thing. To make hell freeze over and snatch a kiss is another. But when a strawberry and some molten chocolate lead to five hot minutes in his kitchen, the stakes of this challenge unexpectedly rise…

A PRINCE FOR LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD, Grimm was a Bastard #1
When Red Riding Hood decided to catch herself a royal.
Every time someone opens a storybook and reads the four magical words “Once upon a time,” my granny gets eaten a few hours later. Boy, it sucks! I wish my tale had a cool ending, like Cindy and Briar-Rose got. Along with a castle and a dashing prince to marry.
Did you ever kiss a frog? No prince pops out of that. Trust me, I’ve tried. Seventeen frogs, and nearly one warty toad—for nothing.
What I get is Jack. Alas, he’s unsuitable for a romantic ending. The Wolf simply lacks the manners for that. And obviously, a crown. Because, off the record: love only happens among royals in Fairyland.
Since royalty doesn’t just rain from the sky, I’m going to build a prince trap tomorrow, and then I’ll write my new ever after. It’ll be so good…
*cough* Hi, I’m Jack Wolf—yes, if Riley gets to say something here, so do I. ^^
And she better forget about this harebrained idea to elope with a royal. We’re not going to rewrite anything. If she wants to make out with somebody, she can do it with me or no one.
Oh, and…it will be good.
A WOLF IN HER WAY, Grimm was a Bastard #2
When Red Riding Hood learned that love isn’t bound to a crown.
I’ve been gone from the woods for just two short days and suddenly, everyone’s super happy to see me again. Even Jack can’t seem to let me go.
The hard kiss he presses to my mouth is totally mistimed, though. Heck, what is he thinking? That he can stop me from finding my prince from the ball? He says I wouldn’t know love if it mowed me down with a coach…or something like that. Hah! I should teach him a few things about love.
I will go on this journey! He can come with me, or not.
Yo, Jack again… The farther we travel on, the deeper I drown in ogre shit. Why the hell did I have to ask Phillip to help me with the whole prince thing? Can we just start from scratch, please?
MY SECRET VAMPIRE: Dracula’s Heir
For nineteen years, I was just an ordinary Californian guy. Until a car crash almost killed me, and Count Dracula suddenly stuck his teeth into my throat.
As his great-great-grandnephew and rightful heir, he ships me off to freaking Transylvania to learn how to be a vampire the hard way: with no staff to eat, no chance to escape, and no Wi-Fi. It’s just the place to go mental. And starve.
But there’s this girl. Abigail… For some reason, she likes to roam the dark and musty castle. She claims to know nothing about vampires, but I swear she tries to kill me every damn time we meet. I would have invited her to be my dinner last night if she hadn’t fled with something very dear to me. My fang.
Now, I’m waiting for sundown to find her and get my tooth back. And then I’ll kill the werewolf that howls in the forest, because that’s actually the one condition under which Uncle Vlad allows me to return home.
But the wolf problem is harder to solve than expected. And Abigail’s cookie-like scent is making me do really stupid things…
He was never a part of my plan…
Twelve years ago, when my mother chose her violent lover over me, my end of the deal was a room in an orphanage. Thank God, in six weeks, I’ll be eighteen and free!
Except, a certain stupid sweater in my backpack—okay, okay! I didn’t actually pay for it—lands me at court. And, look at that…my mother is back, too.
I want to keel over dead when the judge sentences me to time in France with her. Actually, I take that back, I want her to keel over dead! And then somebody says she has cancer. Wow, I’ve never had a wish fulfilled this fast. But until that happens—or I turn eighteen, whichever comes first—I’m required to work in some unknown family’s vineyards.
France, however, holds another surprise for me. Julian.
He doesn’t miss a chance to provoke me, and for some reason he seems to foresee each step of my brilliant escape plan. What the hell—?
But then he makes a tiny mistake. And suddenly, I’m confronted with a secret that makes my blood run cold.
