Betrayal to Bliss
When newly widowed Lisa Browning discovers her late-husband has fathered a child with another woman, she abandons that vat of ice cream with her name on it and flies off to Florida for a job interview with hopes of a new life. Lured by the sunset and lulled by the sound of the waves, she becomes the focus of a sexy photographer on and off camera. He's the perfect substitute for her vat of ice cream...until her heart gets in the way.
Freelance photographer Garrett Kline is looking for the perfect subject for his latest job. When he spots the sensual siren on the beach, he’s found what he is looking for...and then some. His inner playboy is good with a short-term fling, but something about Lisa makes him want more than being just strangers at sunset.
Jill Pierce's life has never been easy. Then she discovers the father of her newborn daughter is not only married but dead. Jill’s not sure how she and her baby will survive until his parents make her an offer she can’t refuse--relocate to Cincinnati so they can help her. When Johnny, the baby’s sexy-as-sin paternal uncle arrives to help her move, Jill knows her life could quickly become the perfect talk show episode. When Johnny Browning is forced to move his dead brother’s mistress home, he’s floored by an instant attraction to the sassy young cocktail waitress. Unfortunately, denying his desire proves impossible, and after a month of frustration, denial gives way to a confession that he wants more than friendship. Despite his sincere interest, Jill is determined not to get involved with him. His only hope is to convince her he’s nothing like his brother. His plan is simple--show her love like she’s never known before. Johnny’s intentions are clear while Jill is determined to make better life choices. But if she’s not careful, he just might make the choice for her and build a life with someone else.
