When two lost souls are brought together in an unlikely circumstance, it’ll take more to scare this feisty beauty away from a domineering beast. A story of love, loss, and learning to accept when life gives you a second chance.

Elena Salazar has taken care of her gambling-addicted brother since her parents’ death. When he calls her late one night asking for help, she’s thrown into Tristan Mercier’s life and is at his mercy. Unable to pay her brother’s debt, a contract is signed: she will live and work for Tristan for six months while her brother is sent to rehab. 

Tristan Mercier is scarred, both physically and emotionally. He lost his happily ever after five years earlier in a fire that nearly took his life. He’s broken and bitter, but with Elena’s arrival, things are changing, and the feelings he thought long buried begin to resurface.

Can this brute open his heart to give his belleza a chance?


Something about the way her plump lips stayed open in wonder held him mesmerized. He cleared his throat. “Yes, it is. You know John William Waterhouse’s work?”
Elena answered without taking her eyes off the painting. “Not really. It’s just his rendition of La Belle Dame Sans Merci is my favorite.”
“So, you’re an art aficionado?”
“No, I just like to read. A lot. Keats is my favorite poet, and La Belle is my favorite poem of his. The paintings are just a plus.”
Tristan nodded. If he thought he was a little curious about Elena before, now he wanted to know her life story. Clearing his throat, he pushed a packet before her.
The contract.
“This contract pretty much states that while your brother is off in rehab, you will be living and working with me. Now, this is only temporary, but if after the time frame you would like to continue to work for me, it could be arranged. Six months is the initial requirement. This work doesn’t in any way, shape, or form signify… sexual services.” Heat rose to his face. Why he felt like a green boy, he didn’t know. It wasn’t like he was a monk for Christ’s sake. When he was in the mood, there was always a woman available for his pleasure. Did he feel empty afterward? Yes, but that didn’t stop him. He was a red-blooded man after all.
“This says a period of six months,” Elena replied, her face slightly flushed.
“Yes. Six months, granted that your brother recuperates within that time frame.”
“That seems a bit long doesn’t it?”
“It gives both you and Adam time to get your life on track.”
There was a silence long enough that Tristan began to think she would reject the offer. And there was a little part of him that wished she wouldn’t. “I accept.”
Tristan handed her a pen, and she tentatively reached for it, her hand brushing against his in the process. He found himself marveling at the electric current running through his veins in response to the touch. She signed her name on the dotted line. “Very well, then. We are in agreement. Now, you may go get yourself comfortable in your new bedroom. Paola will show you,” he said, standing from his chair and walking toward the door.
“When will I start working?” Elena asked as she followed him.
“Monday. In the meantime, get settled in, take a couple days to familiarize yourself with the house. You will be here for six months.”
Tristan waited next to the entrance as Elena took her leave. He caught the scent of lavender as she passed him, and it took all his willpower not to plant his nose in her hair and inhale her scent.
He swallowed a few times before speaking. “Breakfast will be served in the dining room within the hour if you care to eat,” he said gruffly. “If you need anything from me, I’ll be here in the office.”
“You’re not eating?” she asked, turning to look at him.
He shook his head. “Too much work I need to take care of. You enjoy.”
Elena nodded and left without another word.
Tristan watched her as she climbed up the steps with Paola following right behind. Her beautiful long brown hair swayed with each step she took. He was planted in one spot, unable to tear his eyes away. Then Paola turned to look at him and winked!

  If you knew love would hurt you, would you fall? If you knew love would leave you, would you let it go? If you knew love could never be, would you try? From bestselling author Randi Cooley Wilson comes a gut-wrenching love story about heartbreak, second chances, and letting go. The ifs that linger between the pages of this novel will break your heart and stay with you long after the final chapter. Emerson Shaw thought she’d left her old life behind her, but when she returns home for her best friend’s wedding, she has no idea her past is waiting to reclaim her. Dark and broken, Lincoln Daniels never wanted to find love. But when he met straight-laced Emerson, he fell. Hard. The only thing they seemed to have in common was an undeniable mutual attraction, but from the moment he laid eyes on her, there was something about her that called to him. Until he lost her. Tormented by demons and consumed by dark desires, it took years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of their what ifs. Just when Emerson is finally ready to let go and stop existing in a past full of pain and regret, Lincoln returns, turning her life upside down. What begins as a tentative friendship quickly escalates, and the two soon realize that all the ifs lingering between them no longer matter. If is a love story about two damaged people whose future depends on promises made in the past. What happens when two broken people meet, fall in love, and realize they can never be? What happens when all the what ifs no longer make sense? If you knew your heart would break, would you still fall? This book is intended for mature audiences.

Despite her heartbreak, Arya Danvers needs to let go of the man she loves. She knows it might be the only way he can heal.

Both Parker and Arya must fight for their relationship and their future if they hope to have their happily ever after. After all, love is always worth the fight.

The conclusion to Parker’s story from More Than Words.


I was waiting by the front door as soon as my parents told me that Justin was coming over to drop off Nicholas so he and Mona could go see a movie. He’d been dodging my questions about how Parker was doing and what he’d said to him. It was driving me crazy. My mind had gone to some pretty dark places thinking of all that Parker was probably going through. And I wasn’t there. I made that choice, and since I walked out that door, I’d regretted leaving. What did that say about me, that I left him when things were so bad? Did that make me a horrible person? Depression I could live with. Even help him through. But when I walked in on those pills lined up, the thought of him taking his life scared me. It wasn’t just about me anymore, because I would have stayed. It was about our child and ensuring that they got the life they deserved.
I moved to the front window and peeled back the curtain to get a better look. The curse of being short was that I could barely see out the front door window.
“Arya, get away from the window. The neighbors will think you’re crazy.” My mother laughed. Draping her arm around my shoulder, she gave me a squeeze. “Don’t you want to help me bake some brownies?” My weakness, baking. Just when I was about to agree, I saw Justin’s car pull into the driveway.
“I will. As soon as I get information out of Justin.” I swung open the front door and glared at him as he walked toward me.
“If looks could kill….” Justin winked while Nicholas cooed in his arms.
“You’re lucky you’re holding my nephew.” I snickered.
“Not for long.” My mother bypassed us and stole Nicholas away. “Come on, baby. Let’s go make some brownies and let your aunty yell at your daddy.” We watched as they walked down the hall to the kitchen and were out of earshot.
“Arya, listen, I didn’t kill him. He’s safe. Just like I said a thousand times via text message.” Justin held up his hands and took a step back.
“How did he look though? Did he get out of bed?” I may have walked out on Parker but my feelings for him were stronger than ever. I wanted him to get better and to see that there was life outside of the depression he had been living in for the greater part of his life.
Justin’s arms flew up in frustration. “Jesus Christ. He looked like a man who lost his sister. Who’s struggling, but going to do what it takes to get better. Let the man do what he needs to do to prove that he’s everything you deserve.” Justin rubbed his face and sighed.
The anger I expected wasn’t there. I swallowed back the bubble of emotion, because he was right. I was being obsessive, but the last thing I wanted Parker to do was harm himself.
Damn. I hated when my brother was right.
