Synopsis:
     Welcome to the Winters Family Series, a sweet and sexy contemporary romance, where family comes first, romance is all around, and plates will be filled with many delicious meals.


     Joshua Winters is a math teacher by day, bartender by night.  He's the middle Winters brother, and tends to be a bit of a wild child.  Ten years ago he met the girl of his dreams in algebra class, his junior year of high school.  He tries all of his sexy charm on this unapproachable girl, but then she mysteriously leaves Wilmington and he feels lost.  Now seeing her standing in the bar where he works, he realizes this may be his second chance.


       Kenzie Waters grew up a military brat and traveled everywhere while she was growing up.  Since she relocates about every six months to a year she vowed to not make friends and just keep to herself.  When she met Joshua Winters in high school, he managed to crack her tough exterior.  Still guarded, she kept her distance from the cutest boy in high school.  When her father is called for another tour of duty in Afghanistan, her mom moves them back to Arizona to be with family.  Just two months after living back in Arizona, her father comes home injured.  The next ten years, she endures so much, and yet Joshua always stayed in the forefront of her mind.


       Now, Kenzie has made her way back to Wilmington, NC, and hopefully into the arms of the one man who had her heart all along.  

      Sometimes we fall in love with someone even before we know it.

Excerpt
As she walked out of her office, a flash of movement caught her attention.  She walked up front and saw Joshua sitting on a chair.  He had his head bent, and was looking at his phone.  She stopped and just looked at him, damn he was gorgeous.  Somehow she had to tell him about her degrees, or lack thereof, but how?  She walked towards him, and at the same moment he lifted his head and looked into her eyes.  They both never took their eyes off each other, Kenzie stopped just inches from him.
With just a hint of a smile, “I thought you were heading to The Clam Bake with Izzy and Drew?”
He stood and walked towards her.  Filling the empty space between them, “I decided to wait and walk over with you.  Is that okay?”
“Of course.” She had her hands knotted together, and her thumbs were moving back and forth.  Her head was bent, and she was looking at her hands.
Joshua was only about 4 inches taller than her, so he bent just slightly to look into her chocolate colored eyes.  “You want to talk about what has you distracted?”
She looked up and wanted to just melt into him, smiling, “Not right now, let’s go get a drink.”
He wasn’t going to push, he didn’t know her enough to push.  “Whenever you’re ready, you know I’m here.”
She looked confused, “Why?”
He was a little thrown off by the question, “Why what?”
“Why would you want to be here for me, after all I did to you?  I was horrible to you in high school, and then never bothered to apologize - until ten years later.”  She stopped talking, and turned away from him, then quietly whispered, “Shit, I still haven’t apologized.”
Joshua walked up behind her, wrapped his arms around her waist.  He really could get used to this, the feel of her next to him.  “I’m working on letting go Kenzie, and you should, too.  Only forward, right?”
She leaned her head back onto his chest and let out a deep sigh, “I don’t think I can let go just yet, there are a few things that I need to resolve first.”  She turned into his embrace, loving the way it felt in his arms.  She really hoped he would still want to be near her once he knew about her, and her past.
******
Kenzie was laughing as she walked into The Clam Bake.  Joshua was behind her, lightly poking her sides and trying to make her laugh.  She suddenly turned and grabbed his hands in hers, “Oh my God, paybacks are a bitch!”
Joshua couldn’t stop smiling, with their hands still joined, he tugged her closer to him.  He whispered for only her ears, “Ya, what’re going to do, spank me?”
Kenzie immediately flushed at his words, “Maybe?”
Joshua pulled her even closer, “I think we have a problem?”
Looking confused, “What kind of problem?”
But before he could answer her question, Izzy hopped over and stuck her head in between theirs.  “Hi there chick-a-dees, you plan on joining us for dinner, or giving the restaurant a show of a lifetime?”
Kenzie pressed her head to Joshua’s chest, her mouth was facing his chest.  With a muffled voice, “What are you doing to me, Joshua Winters?”
Isabel laughed, like full belly laughed, “Sweetie, it’s called the Winters charm…and they’re all freaking hot, of course.”
Joshua wrapped his arms around Kenzie, “My charm and looks have you flustered?  Well now you know what you do to me, every single time you walk into a room.” He whispered in her ear, “You also make it hard for me to walk properly.” He bent and kissed her temple, “Want bourbon on the rocks to calm your nerves?”  Then he poked her side again to get her attention.
She quickly lifted her head to protest, but instead was suddenly lost in his eyes.  Just inches from his mouth, and all she wanted to do was kiss those gorgeous full lips.  Then he smiled, full teeth showing and all, and that was it for her.  She leaned up and kissed him, not a thank you or how are you kiss - it was a kiss that started to heat the whole room up instantly.
When she pulled back, they both had glazed looks, and half grins plastered on their faces.  He pulled back, put his arm around her waist and walked them towards Isabel and Drew.  Isabel was smiling, “I just ordered you both bourbon on the rocks, you need it.”
Kenzie finally found her voice, “Thank you, Izzy.  Did you make it a double?” They all started laughing.

Isabel Sloane grew up in Philadelphia, PA, but decided it was time for a change of scenery.  She has worked as a television reporter for several years, and recently took a job in Wilmington.  She is a gorgeous plus-size woman, who tends to be judged because of her size.  Her last boyfriend just liked having a companion for events or dates, otherwise he never noticed her.  Now, she plans to put men on the back-burner, work towards becoming an anchor, and cook up all her favorite recipes.  Then she notices Mr. Blue-Eyes next-door going out for a morning run…


In the end, will Drew be ready to catch Isabel?  Will Isabel be ready for that happily ever after?

TL BN KoboSynopsis: It’s always easy to say what one should have or could have done to change the events in their life, but what happens when it's too late? When the damage is already done? Do I just give up? It’s hard to see a way out when I am lost in a sea of pain and have to face the realization that a chain of bad choices put me in my present state. I’ve always believed I was a fighter, but somewhere along the line I forgot that, I gave up, I broke down. But here’s the thing, I wanted to be better, I wanted another chance to do better. Don’t you think I knew all along that Dylan was my light, my love? I did. But like I said love is twisted. When someone falls victim to their worst nightmare do you catch them when they fall or do you turn your back on them? I know I shouldn’t question this, but Luc understood my inner turmoil. Two broken souls, our bond almost seemed unbreakable. Almost. I’ve met obstacle after obstacle. It’s laughable that I thought the threat would end with Luc. The threat is real, the fear I feel when I look over my shoulder is all real. I’m Alexis White and I’ve learned from my mistakes, the question is: will I be brave enough to give away my heart forever?

                                        Excerpt
I’m out of the cab a nanosecond after it comes to a halt outside the club. It’s still early, but already there’s a line of people hoping to get in. One of the security blokes unhooks the purple rope as I approach.

Ray emerges from inside. I don’t fail to notice the look that passes between him and Aide. Fucking hell, I don’t need two nursemaids. Why can’t they just leave me to my misery? I don’t want their sympathy or their concern.

I grunt in reply to Ray’s welcome and go inside.

The pounding beat of the music reverberates beneath my feet as I cross the entrance lobby. I must look like I mean business because the rope at the bottom of the staircase that leads to the upper floor is unhooked tout-fucking-suite and I don’t even have to break my stride.

Upstairs in the VIP section I make straight for the bar.

‘Vodka,’ I tell the barman. ‘And not that shit you give the punters. Koniks.’

The barman looks past me, over my shoulder. I glance round in time to see Aide give a small nod. Fuck that pisses me off.

I glare at the barman. ‘What the fuck are you looking at him for?’

The barman looks all kinds of nervous as well he fucking should. I’m his boss for fuck’s sake. He takes the vodka from the drinks fridge and reaches for a tumbler.

            ‘Forget the glass.’ I snatch the bottle out of his hand.

‘Classy,’ Aide sneers behind me.

            I tell him to fuck off and head to the farthest seating area.

Flopping down on the sofa, I unscrew the cap from the chilled bottle and throw it on the table. Ah, the first taste is always the best. Okay it’s not my first tonight, but still.

Aide places a glass in front of me and sits on the opposite sofa.

I stare at him. ‘Got a problem?’

‘Your drinking is bad  enough. You could at least try not to look like some wino.’

That’s funny. Yeah, some wino I am; sitting in one of the most expensive clubs in London in a thousand pound suit. ‘Fuck you.’


Aide sighs and takes a swig from his bottle of Stella. Okay for him to drink from the bottle then.

‘So is this how it’s going to be? You drinking away our profits, not to mention your life,’ Aide asks as I pour vodka halfway up the small tumbler.

I raise the glass to my lips. ‘Start a fucking tab then. You know I’m good for it.’ Fuck. I’m good for ten lifetimes.

But it’s this one that’s killing me.

About the Author
From a small child I’ve loved to lose myself in stories. I’m a firm believer that if heaven exists, it contains every novel ever written and has big squishy sofas to curl up on and read for all eternity.

My comedy play, The Magazine was performed at The Bush Theatre in London and my poetry has been published in several anthologies. However, what I really wanted to write were novels. With several unfinished manuscripts languishing in the depths of my computers hard drive, it was my discovery of erotic romance that led me to the realisation this is the genre I should be writing.

As English as they come, I couldn’t survive without tea. From Rachmaninov to Aerosmith my taste in music is best described as eclectic. And I make a mean chocolate cake.

I currently live in London, England, but dream of moving to the coast. A long held desire I really hope to fulfill one day.

I had an absolute blast writing Beguiled and In Too Deep and I hope you enjoy them, along with book 3 of The Frost Trilogy due to be released late summer 2015. I realise the colloquial dialogue and British idioms may be new to some readers, but Mia is English as am I and she speaks with a definitive English voice - I couldn’t have written my feisty, intelligent, well-read heroine any other way. Maybe I should have included a glossary! LOL
