The day I left Wilder Valley, I swore I’d never return.
My dreams were too big for this small town, and I was determined to make it in LA, even if that meant leaving behind the man I loved.
Now I’m back, broken-hearted and publicly humiliated after a colossal breakup live-streamed to the masses. I have no career or money to show for my twenty-three years away. If I could hide out anywhere else on the planet, I would.
Instead, I resort to taking the only job in town. A nanny gig for my high school sweetheart.
Life didn’t go as planned for him either.
Ryan Wilder might be running his family ranch and looking like a tall glass of water while doing it, but he’s also drowning in responsibility, raising three children on his own, and dealing with the challenges of caring for his aging father.
We strike up a deal to help each other out. He offers me a place to stay along with a steady paycheck. In exchange I keep his teenagers out of trouble while figuring out my next step. Everything is perfect until those pesky little feelings from our youth come roaring back.
This time is different, though. We’ve experienced life and we know what we want. At least, I thought I did. All the dreams I had for myself existed outside of this town, but the more time I spend with Ryan and his family, the more I question everything. Including my wild heart.
Wild Hearts is a second chance, small town, steamy, later in life romance between a single dad in his forties and the one who got away!
His mistake was leaving.
Her mistake was falling for a Wilder.
Aiden and Sarah’s book is the next standalone in the Wilder Valley series. This second chance, small town, single parent romance features a couple in their forties reconnecting after almost two decades apart.
I'm not interested in a forever kind of relationship, but he's down for whatever I'm willing to give. Our arrangement is perfect. At least that's how it begins. I never wanted the happily ever after, but he's just so tempting.
The smart choice would be to end things before they combust, but for some reason I can't push Cam away. The harder I try, the harder he--well, you get the picture.
I wish things were different. I want to be someone worthy of his devotion. But the secrets I hold close, they don't just eat me up inside, they destroy anyone who gets too close.
So, I won't fall in love. Simple, right?
Wrong. So freaking wrong. I don't just fall. I crash and burn for this man. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Turns out I'm not the only one telling lies and keeping secrets, and his are enough to rip us apart forever.
Caught in the Lies reads as standalone but readers can enjoy Cam and Jill's FREE prequel, One Hot Night, available now or begin with Callie's book in Caught in the Flames.
For the first time in my life, I want things cash can’t procure. I want a real relationship. Beauty and brains. A salacious little minx who isn’t afraid to call me out. My equal, in and out of the bedroom.
The problem is I have no clue where to find a woman like that.
Imagine my luck when I come upon a curvy, gorgeous maiden in distress, stranded on the side of I-10 like a mirage fashioned from my deepest desires. It’s fate. Kismet.
Only she isn’t impressed. Not by my money, my power, or my ability to make all her dreams come true. Hell, she won’t even accept my ride without an argument. But I’m not giving up. She doesn’t know who she’s dealing with, and I’m not afraid to play dirty.
Fire captain Cameron McClain thinks I’m the meddlesome one, but he’s the instigator. His rugged good looks and confident sense of humor should be illegal. Not to mention his dimples.
They’re partially to blame for why I leave this party and follow him back to his room. I knew we had chemistry, but from the second his lips meet mine, my body catches on fire. All it takes is one touch and the attraction between us combusts into an undeniable heat.
One hot night. That’s all we were meant to be. But now that I know how good we are together, how can I stay away?
One Hot Night is a prequel to Caught in the Lies.
I never expected Alicia Martin to walk back into my life. Not after the way she left. Not after her letter. Yet here she is, more alluring than ever, and with a secret that flips my world on its axis.
Three years ago I would have done anything to be with her, but now things are different. Complicated. I have a life here in Richmond, one I’m proud of and worked hard to build.
That doesn’t mean I’ve given up hope.
If anything, she’s restored my belief in second chances. The last time we were together, I gave her plenty of reasons to run. This time, I’ll convince her to stay.
Caught in Us is the conclusion to Chase and Alicia’s story and should be read after Caught in the Chase.

Sure, I'm also on this tour to play drums. A bit of blackmail got me the gig and out from under my parents' control. All I've ever wanted is to live the rock star life, so I'm willing to do whatever it takes. Doesn't matter who gets hurt, as long as I get mine.
At least that's how it started.
This girl, she's gotten under my skin. Makes me want to be a better man. Has me dreaming of more than a life on the road. For a future of my own, as long as it includes her.
Only, I'm not sure how to make that happen. I can't tell her the truth, not when it won't set us free.
HINDER can be read as a standalone, or start with Trent's story in DETOUR.
But it wasn’t always this way.
Jayla knew me before I hit it big. Back when I was a skinny teen, chasing dreams without a penny to my name. Now she’s back in my life and so much more than the girl I remember. Fiercely loyal. Beautiful and badass. She walked out of my life before, and I won’t let that happen again.
They say some songs are better on the second take, and if there’s one thing I know for sure, this is our time for a replay.
REPLAY is the final book in the Off Track Records series and can be read as a standalone, or start at the beginning with DETOUR.
It's an unspoken rule, and one I'm determined to follow. I've always been the guy to take the high road, to be the voice of reason, but when it comes to Jess I'm tired of fighting this overwhelming attraction.
The more time we spend together, the more compelled I am to show her she's worthy of love and dreams of her own. The lines of my moral compass begin to blur. I should leave her alone, but I can't. I know it's wrong, but everything about us feels so right.
Despite everything I try, it doesn't change the truth. She's not mine.
I can't sit back and watch her love someone else. But if given the choice, will she even want me?
DERAIL can be read as a standalone, or start with Trent's story in DETOUR.
Not when fictional men do it so much better, and not when my heart has been through the wringer. So when retired MMA fighter Matt Haywood crashes into my life, I’m not impressed. Quite the opposite actually. I avoid him at all costs.
At least, I try.
His persistence wears me down and it’s me who ends up wandering into his gym looking for more. I have to admit he’s nothing like I assumed. He’s witty and smart. His physical condition could win awards. Problem is, somewhere between rolling around on the mats together, I let down my guard.
I thought I was over relationships. That I’d never risk my heart again. But he’s out to prove it’s never too late for a comeback.
