Audrey Stone is a delightfully colorful, full-figured woman and she is finally living her dream, or will be as soon as she wins this year’s Florists’ Show Award. The monetary prize will help pay for her father’s therapy and the hospital contract will help jump start her florist business, The Last Dance. But all those dreams are about to be dashed by her former playmate and best friend, Gray Turner.
Gray was called home from Denver and his own successful business venture to help his failing family business in Accord. His father is bleeding the company dry by giving his employees outrageously expensive benefits and by selling a prime piece of land to Audrey Stone. The land is in the middle of a huge parcel that Gray wants to sell to help salvage Turner’s Lumber. Needless to say, Gray is in over his head with the larger than life Audrey. He would much rather cuddle with Audrey than fight, but a looming family secret demands that Gray find the money to set things right.
This multilayered story, BECAUSE OF AUDREY, is packed with scenarios which tempt readers to keep reading until the last page is savored. Primary characters, Audrey and Gray, have several problems facing them, individually and as a couple, that will entertain readers while the two search for solutions. Also featured are some very interesting secondary characters that are begging for their own stories as well as an adorable dog, Jerry Springer Spaniel. Gifted talent Mary Sullivan certainly knows how to turn a phrase and delight her readers in her latest series set in Accord, Colorado.

Billionaire Jonas Deveson discovers that he is still paying his father’s debts long after his death. But it wasn’t his father that signed that final large check, so it must be his mistress, the housekeeper that induced his father to abandon his mother. Jonas is determined to have his sweet revenge and make Silvia Ruggiero pay one way or another.
Ravenna Ruggiero is trying to tie up her mother’s estate in Paris. After the death of her mother’s lover, Silvia has become destitute. Ravenna is helping by selling off the furnishings and apartment to provide a nest egg for her mother, who is now living in Italy. Expecting a buyer, Ravenna is surprised by Jonas and his claim that everything belongs to him and that her mother has his stolen money. Thinking quickly, Ravenna tells Jonas that she forged the check, not her mother, and she will make reparation. Jonas smugly agrees, informing Ravenna that she will be required to prepare his neglected family mansion for reopening by scrubbing it top to bottom by herself. But it isn’t long before Jonas joins Ravenna at Deveson Hall, supervising building repairs and Ravenna. The sexual tension fairly sizzles when they are near each other but Jonas can not help himself.
Bestselling author Annie West enthralls her readers with her exotic romances. AN ENTICING DEBT TO PAY is the story of a dangerously handsome hero and a bright intuitive heroine who singe the pages with their raging desire for each other. Never has a misunderstanding caused such unbridled emotion as Jonas‘s belief that Ravenna is a thief. Sparks fly and the reader reaps the reward of Annie West’s extraordinary talent.

After nine heartbreaking years, Jena Brooks is finally returning home to Willow Creek to face her demons, reap her revenge and find her child. The first person she confronts is Carson Corbett, constable for Willow Creek and the son of Asa, the man that took Jena’s baby. All those years ago, Jena had been pregnant with Jared Corbett’s baby, a fact his father denied. But when Jared was killed by Jena’s father, Asa reacted by kidnapping Jena, forcing a midwife to induce labor and stealing the baby. Jena’s father was also killed and to this day his murderer has not been found. Carson was serving in the Marines when all this happened and believed his father when he was told that his brother was killed by Jena’s father because Jared wouldn’t marry Jena. He thought, like the rest of the town, that Jena had run away from Willow Creek to have her baby.
Carson knows that all hell is about to break loose when Jenna starts spreading her story but despite the incredulousness of it all, he could feel a ring of truth. Jena wants his help in finding her baby and she expects Carson to talk with his father since Asa had just suffered a stroke. She wants to keep the sheriff out of the whole thing because her mother and sister still live in Willow Creek, she just wants her child and is prepared to have the high powered law firm where she works become involved if she doesn’t get satisfaction. Carson decides to work with Jena and find the answers she needs. Together, a bond is formed between Jena and Carson based on their developing trust and willingness to face the ugly past.
