Indy has been in love with Lee since she was a little girl and he held her hand during her mother’s funeral. Lee has had a lifetime of dodging Indy’s advances, because he wasn’t ready for commitment.
Now, he’s ready.
The problem is, Indy is not.
Into this mix, toss a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, and hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.
Decades ago, tennis superstar Tom Pierce and “It Girl” Mika Stowe met at a party.
Mika fell in love. Tom was already in love with his wife. As badly as Tom wanted Mika as a friend, Mika knew it would hurt too much to be attracted to this amazing man and never be able to have him.
They parted ways for what they thought would be forever, only to reconnect just once, when unspeakable tragedy darkens Mika’s life.
Years later, the impossible happens.
A time comes when they’re both unattached.
But now Tom has made a terrible mistake. A mistake so damaging to the ones he loves, he feels he’ll never be redeemed.
Mika has never forgotten how far and how fast she fell when she met him, but Tom’s transgression is holding her distant from reaching out.
There are matchmakers in their midst, however.
And when the plot has been unleashed to make that match, Tom and Mika are thrown into an international intrigue that pits them against a Goliath of the sports industry.
Now they face a massive battle at the same time they’re navigating friendship, attraction, love, family, grief, redemption, two very different lives lived on two opposite sides of a continent and a box full of kittens.
Until she sees the girl in the mist.
After that, everything changes.
Delphine quickly learns that Misted Pines isn’t so sleepy. A little girl has gone missing, and the town is in the grips of terror and tragedy. The local sheriff isn’t up for the job. The citizens are up in arms. And as the case unfolds, the seedy underbelly of a quiet community is exposed, layer by layer.
But most importantly, girls are dying.
There seems to be only one man they trust to find out what’s happening.
The mysterious Cade Bohannan.
Alexandra Sharp has been crushing on her co-worker, John “Rix” Hendrix for years. He’s her perfect man, she knows it.
She’s just not his perfect woman, and she knows that too.
Then Rix gives Alex a hint that maybe there’s a spark between them that, if she takes the leap, she might be able to fan into a flame. This leads to a crash and burn, and that’s all shy Alex needs to catch the hint never to take the risk again.
However, with undeniable timing, Rix’s ex, who broke his heart, and Alex’s family, who spent her lifetime breaking hers, rear their heads, gearing up to offer more drama. With the help of some matchmaking friends, Rix and Alex decide to face the onslaught together…
As a fake couple.
Since Eddie’s a cop, he figures he can help. Since Jet’s used to solving everyone’s problems, she doesn’t want Eddie’s help.
Oh, and there’s also the fact Jet’s pathologically shy, especially around hot guys.
The problem is, Jet’s ne’er-do-well father has got himself in a heap of trouble, and in trying to get him out, Jet buys herself even more.
So much—unless Eddie can rescue her—it might just get her dead.

Unfortunately, her eyes fall on Hank Nightingale, and she knows it’s trouble from the get-go.
Roxie tries to hold Hank at arm’s length, but Hank wants to be a lot closer (as in, a lot a lot). Roxie’s trouble catches up with her and Hank wants to help, but Roxie knows in her heart that she’s no good for a White Hat type of guy.
The problem is, no one agrees with her, especially her crazy, hippie best friend, Annette, or her parents, the even crazier, small-town Herb and Trish, or her even crazier Uncle Tex, or any of her newfound posse of Rock Chicks.
Roxie’s got the odds stacked against her and has no choice but to hold on and ride it out through kidnappings, car chases, society parties and a wild night at the Haunted House.
And what she’s holding on to through it all is Hank.
Luke knows she’s up to something and he’s already seen many a Rock Chick try to fight her own battles without the Hot Bunch stepping in.
He’s having none of it.
She’s having none of him.
The problem is, Ava and Luke find themselves in a house torn apart in a hail of gunfire. And just like that, Luke isn’t about to give in to Ava’s brush off.
The clash of the Rock Chick and Hot Bunch Guy begins, but Luke’s got the advantage. He has handcuffs and he’s not afraid to use them.
In this effort, she enlists Zip (a gun store owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help. The Rock Chicks get involved to provide advice and guidance. The Hot Bunch adopt Jules as one of their own.
Even though Jules tries to hang on to her inner Head-Crackin’ Mamma Jamma, the Rock Chicks, Hot Bunch, Jules’s long-suffering Uncle Nick and her Jackie-O wannabe friend May, will stop at nothing to wear her down. Not to mention Vance, who has his own unique ways of digging into Jules’s heart.
But Jules makes some bad guys pretty angry, and one will stop at nothing to take her out.
And Vance may be too late in making sure that doesn’t happen.
One night, Stella gets a call, late (again), from one of the members of her crazy band. She has to go play clean up (again), runs into Mace (and a shed load of police) and ends up getting shot.
Mace finds he doesn’t like it much that his ex-girlfriend got shot right in front of him, but it’s worse. A very bad man has thrown down the gauntlet and all the Rock Chicks are in the firing line.
Stella doesn’t want Mace to be the one to keep her alive, but she has no choice.
Mainly because Mace isn’t giving her one.
Their engagement was set when they were children. Loren Copeland, the rich and handsome Marquess of Remington, would marry Maxine Dawes, the stunning daughter of the Count of Derryman. It’s a power match. The perfect alliance for each house.
However, the Count has been keeping secret a childhood injury that means Maxine can never marry. He’s done this as he searches for a miracle so this marriage can take place. He needs the influence such an alliance would give him, and he’ll stop at nothing to have it.
The time has come. There could be no more excuses. No more delays. The marriage has to happen, or the contract will be broken.
When all seems lost, the Count finds his miracle: There’s a parallel universe where his daughter has a twin. He must find her, bring her to his world and force her to make the Marquess fall in love with her.
And this, he does.
