Logan never goes back for seconds. Had he known Katie lived in Pamona Gulch when they met, he wouldn’t have touched her. With their mutual acquaintances hooking up, she’s insisting they should be friends. Logan only has one friend, and it certainly isn’t the off-limits woman he’s lusted over for the last two years.
Katie is trying to get over Logan. Two years ago, he taught her exactly what BDSM could offer her, and now she’s stuck pining for a Dom who won’t even speak to her. When she gets involved with the wrong man, Logan is forced to step in, testing their newfound friendship and stretching boundaries.
Tempers flare when authorities capture the arsonist who’s been terrorizing the town. Will this new development snuff out the inferno burning in the background of this second-chance romance? Or does it only add fuel to the fire?

Excerpt:

“I mean, Annette’s pregnant and talking about moving in with Jude. It doesn’t look like they’re breaking up anytime soon. And Joey and Vivian are a serious thing, like, family-style and all that.” Katie waved her hands around vaguely. “And don’t get me started on Zane and Lettie. That proposal was off the charts. I’ve never heard Lettie talk so much. Ever. She’s even talking about flying Zane to Gainesville to meet her Grandma.”
“I get it. Our friends are serious. You want us to be what?” Logan ignored the pain in his belly at the talk about the guys from the firehouse. Babies and marriage and families were things he’d resigned long ago to never have.
Her face softened, and something broke inside him. What would happen if he actually let himself love Katie the way she deserved? It was a thought he’d had before but knew it was fruitless. It would lead to wishes and unfulfilled desires, and he’d been down that road before.
“Different, Logan. I want us to be different. I’ve resolved myself to the fact we’ll never be together again, but you have to admit things have changed since you laid that rule in my lap in Albuquerque. We live in the same town. We have the same friends. We see each other regardless of what you dictate.”
“Nothing’s changed.” The growl rose from Logan before he could stop it even though he knew she was right. Everything had changed, but he couldn’t reconcile that with what was in his mind. He knew things were different, but he couldn’t figure out how to change himself.
She laughed, a loud, boisterous, throaty noise that had Logan looking around the small restaurant. “You are so full of shit, Logan. Everything’s changed, and you can’t deny that. I’m just saying stop acting like I have some STD when we are in a group. I’m not looking for movie night and to invite you to girls’ night and shit. I just don’t see why you have to hate me for breathing.”
Did he do that? Was that really their problem? Logan knew it was him. He was trying to appease her sensibilities or some shit. He didn’t want to do things her way, and their friends were definitely making things hard for both of them. He heard the grunt before he realized it was him.
“I don’t hate you for breathing,” he muttered under his breath at his lap.
He knew he probably acted like he did because that was the asshole he was. Logan had always been the tough guy. Even before he’d discovered his Dom tendencies, he’d always been an asshole, his only friend being Elliot for years and years. Then he had come here and found a small tribe of firefighters. Not all of them, just Captain, Jude, Joey, and later, Zane.
And he was an asshole to them half the time too.
“So what do you want from me?” If she didn’t want movie nights and shit, she had to spell this out. He had no idea what to do with her—with or without their friends.
“Friends, Logan. That’s all I’m asking. Let’s be friends. We don’t have to hang out alone or anything, but when we’re with our friends, we are friends too. That’s all.” Katie’s eyes pled with him, and he realized how important this was to her.
He also realized what he’d done. The innocence and freshness he’d been so attracted to in the beginning was gone. And it was his fault. As she begged him to be her friend, he realized he was the reason the light had faded from her eyes.
That light he’d once loved.

LOVE learning about this NEW FAIRYTALE BROWNIE FLAVOR!

INTRODUCING: CINNAMON COCOA

Listening to an overwhelming number of requests from customers, Fairytale Brownies is excited to introduce a new brownie flavor – Cinnamon Cocoa – to its Belgian dark chocolate brownie lineup this fall.

This past January, customers responded to a survey asking what they wanted most from Fairytale Brownies, and the top request was a new brownie flavor. Everyone wants a NEW brownie flavor, right? After the customer survery ended they immediately got started and came up with this indulgent Cinnamon Cocoa Brownie!

“We tested many versions of the Cinnamon Cocoa Brownie with a core group of customers and the Fairytale Brownies’ team,” said Fairytale Brownies co-founder Eileen Spitalny.

The new Cinnamon Cocoa brownie mixes imported Vietnamese cinnamon in the batter for a sweet, aromatic flavor. Then a blend of Cacao Barry Extra Brute cocoa powder, real butter and fresh chopped Arizona Green Valley Pecans create the finishing touches for the crumble and is sprinkled on top. The result is sweet, smoky, fudgy, chocolatey brownie perfection.

The new Cinnamon Cocoa Brownie will be included in the company’s main group of 12 full- size (3” x 3”) and snack-size (3” x 1.5”) brownie gifts, combination gifts, as well as sold individually and in bulk. Fairytale Brownies will retire its Coconut Brownie.

Burb:
When a child’s game goes delightfully wrong, Jude finds himself rethinking his current status quo.  Jude finds himself strangely looking to Annette to make sense of his own life.
Annette is trying not to get distracted by the sexy firefighter, but when her artistic retreat begins in disaster, Jude’s playing the hero she can’t ignore.  Suddenly, her artwork is completely changed with Jude’s exquisite lines transforming her landscapes.
Up until now, their life was like a notebook full of doodles, but it’s turning into a full-fledged art showing, and neither of them know how to deal with the embers of desire when they ignite into flames.
Excerpt:
 
She walked through the cabin, taking stock. The first thing she noticed was it was rustic, and had one room, an open plan divided down the middle. An enormous brass bed was in the back corner, divided by a half wall that separated the bed/kitchen area from the living room. 
 
Next to the bed, along the back wall, was a row of cabinets and countertops broken only by a sink for washing up and two large windows that exposed a breathtaking view. A butcher block island and a refrigerator, along with a coffee pot, seemed almost like decorations instead of necessities in the spartan room.
 
On the other side of the half wall was the living area with a couch, a couple of old recliners that looked more like homes to creatures than comfortable seating areas, and giant wood stove. Annette looked closer and noticed it had removable burners on top, which meant this was her stove for the week. She’d only cooked on a wood-burning stove once, at Luke’s deer camp, with horrific results. Oh well. She shrugged to herself. Fine dining was not a priority at the moment. She’d gotten Drake to leave, she just needed to get the cabin set up and she could get to work.
 
Aside from the recliners, the furnishings were old yet warm. Patchwork quilts covered the bed, there was an afghan the back of the sofa, and a closet held more blankets, towels, a stack of board games, cold weather gear, and a locked box. The bathroom was utilitarian yet had everything she would need, including running water.
 
It was cold, so she went outside to gather wood for a fire in the stove.
 
Huh.
There wasn’t much. Scratch that. There was a ton of huge logs she had no hope of picking up and carrying inside, despite the fact they wouldn’t fit inside the barrel-bellied stove anyway.
 
She stifled the silent alarm that rose inside her as she looked at the sky. It was clear-blue with a few fluffy clouds. It looked gorgeous, but she didn’t know much about mountain weather. She’d moved here from the piney woods of east Texas. It rarely snowed there, much less was a way of life.
 
November on a mountain was a different story. She went back inside and looked in the wood stove, pleased to see there was a small fire already stacked. But how long would it last with no wood?
 
With a heavy sigh, she went over to the bed—where Drake had left her things before driving back down the mountain—and grabbed another sweater to put on. She would save the wood until she was nearly frozen, then start breaking up furniture, she supposed.
 
Annette opened the refrigerator to find a bottle of ketchup and a jar of mustard, and two cans of Bud Light.
 
The pantry was much the same way, but the spice cabinet was full. A snort left her lips. She could use it to flavor the mustard.
 
Was she supposed to freaking starve out here all alone in addition to freezing to death?
 
“Thanks a lot, Drake,” she muttered to herself while she stalked to her cell phone to call him.
 
No service.
 
Alarm bells were clanging in her head. She was stranded here with no food, no heat, and no cell phone.
 
She was suddenly freezing, starving, and had an inane desire to call her mother.

Currently, she has five romance series.  Playing with Fire explores the trials and tribulations of a small team of fire fighters in the fictional mountain town of Pamona Gulch. In Pierce Securities, she gives us Ryan, Evan, Miriam, Zack, Quinten, Jordan, Hollerman, and Simon. Her favorite series, Book B!tches, is all about a group of women in Mystic, Texas who get into all sorts of shenanigans. In Stories of Serendipity, she explores real people living real lives in small town Texas in a contemporary romance setting. In The Four Winds, she chronicles God’s four closest archangels, Uriel, Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael, falling in love and becoming human.
