    Bailey De Luca is the last of her friends to complete the Last First Date pact–to marry the next guy she dates. But lady luck must be in a bad mood, because so far, it’s all come to nothing.

    Everywhere she looks people are in love. Everyone except her. Is she fundamentally unlovable? Or is it that she’s already found–and lost–The One? Whatever the reason, one thing’s for sure: Bailey never expected to be alone at thirty.

    When one of her friends announces her engagement with a rock that could eclipse the sun, Bailey throws herself into a new business. Starting up Cozy Cottage Catering seems like the perfect way to bury her head in the sand. But fate has other ideas, and soon Bailey is swept off her feet by the oh-so cute Ryan Jones.

    Ryan may seem like the perfect combination of Prince Charming meets Thor (without the hammer), but is Bailey ready to be with him?

    Or will the ghost of her past love prevent her from finding happiness again?

    Kiss Me In Wescott Springs by Holly Cortelyou

    One tempting kiss will rock his world…

Sometimes trusting your enemy is the sweetest victory of all.

    Why gamble on a second chance at love?

    TEASER #1 from Kiss Me at Last

    With a smile lurking at the corners of his mouth, Sean had been waiting for an eruption for the last ten minutes.
    It was day three of construction, and Melinda had looked far from chipper as she’d schlepped into the wine bar at eight in a slouchy gray sweater, faded jeans, and nondescript running shoes. Her eyes were bleary, and she cradled her coffee concoction like it was the crown jewel in the queen’s tiara. She’d winced every time his hammer drove home a nail.
    Sean grinned. Hangover, he supposed, and he pounded a few extra nails for good measure as she scuttled into her office. That ought to fix her little red wagon, Miss High and Mighty and her sexy British accent. Not that he’d noticed.
    He glanced toward her office door, and there was Melinda, staring at him with a stony gaze through half-slitted eyes.
    “Good morning, Ms. York,” Sean said in his perkiest voice. “Sun’s shining, and it’s beautiful out.” He fiddled with the chuck on the drill and idly revved it a few times for some bonus noise.
    “Is there anything quiet you can do for a while?” Melinda said, her tone was pained.
    “Not feeling well?”
    “I’m fine. I have some phone calls to make to wine distributors and a little peace and quiet would be divine.”
    “Go back to your coffee shop for those calls. Unless you want me to take a break already? That will slow me down.”
    Melinda glared. “I’m trying to get some work done, too.”
    “Well, ma’am. This is a construction zone, so there’s going to be noise. We’re not slapping on some paint and hanging a few light fixtures. We’re adding beams, ripping out floors. What exactly were you expecting? Should I bring a bowl of potpourri or something?”
    “That might help.” Her tone was drenched in syrup. “Or do you have a silencer for that drill?”

    TEASER #2 from Kiss Me, Trouble

    As they walked side by side out of the restaurant, a noisy group of women jostled by them. Alix scooted to one side to avoid a passerby whose nose was buried in her phone. She staggered into a towering potted palm.
    The palm fronds swayed ominously, and Alix’s arms flailed.
    “Easy there. Don’t take out that tree.” Cole twined an arm around her waist and pulled her close. A herd of butterflies stampeded through her belly. His touch was familiar, but it dazzled her senses as if it was the first time they’d touched.
    “I’m not usually so wobbly on my feet.” Alix smiled up at Cole and didn’t move.
    Cole blinked and broke into a lopsided grin. “You were pushed.”
    “Like Humpty Dumpty? Did she fall or was she pushed?” Alix wrinkled her nose.
    “It was a conspiracy.” Cole squeezed her waist and winked.
    “Did you pay them to bump me into your arms?” She inched one hip closer to his body.
    “That would have been well played.” Cole’s voice lowered, but she could have heard him whisper, for the rest of the world had grown distant. There were no glasses clinking nor bar patrons buzzing with laughter.
    “And risky.” Alix let her hands creep up his chest until she could feel the solid thud of his heart. It was strong. It was beating as fast as hers. Staccato.
    “I work the angles and the gray areas.”
    “But, I’m the straight arrow.”
    “Opposites still attract?” Cole’s mouth inched closer, and his scent filled her senses. He was exotic like sandalwood but grounded like cedar. He was heaven.
