Now in wide release: QUICK TAKES (Oakland Hills Stories Boxed Set)

Quick Takes

Now you can get all my Oakland Hills short stories to-date in one ebook at all retailers! This Quick Takes collection follows the lives of three friends in California who find love when they least expect it. It also includes a bonus story in which the matchmaker in all the Oakland Hills books (Trixie!) finally gets what she deserves — a happy ending of her own.

This boxset contains four short stories that were originally published separately in 2014 and 2015. They’re standalone romances but are most enjoyable when read together, since there is some overlap in characters. The total set is about 183 pages long.

Can’t Stop Wanting You (love/hate romance)
Jody Lapinski is a plus-sized chemist with a problem. The despicable Simon Brogan has moved into the upstairs unit of her house. In high school, Simon was an arrogant, heartless jerk. She’s not going to forgive him now just because he’s gorgeous and successful. Not after what he did. * *Contains the wedding of Liam and Bev from Love Handles (Oakland Hills Book 1).

Timeline note: story takes place between This Time Next Door andNot Quite Perfect.

Just Can’t Forget You (second chance romance)
They first met as troubled teens, and now their paths have crossed again. Melissa has shrugged off her past to begin a fulfilling career, but Eduardo is definitely trouble. All grown up, he’s more dangerous than ever.

Timeline note: story takes place between This Time Next Door andNot Quite Perfect.

Can You Love Me Now? (friends-to-lovers romance)
Sasha Selkirk has been in love with her best friend’s brother, Jake Lapinksi, since she was thirteen. Now twenty-eight, she knows if he was ever going to return her feelings, he certainly would’ve done it by now. So when he shows up at the snowbound mountain cabin where she’s staying–alone, trying again to forget him–she pushes him away, never expecting him to kiss her. Or make any of her other dreams come true…

Timeline note: story takes place between This Time Next Door andNot Quite Perfect.

THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING (Oakland Hills #4) Now Out in Paperback!

tce prooftceproofbkThere’s more than one way to ruin a beautiful friendship.

Tech entrepreneur Sly has a portfolio of lucrative San Francisco Bay Area start-ups, but while his financial options are unlimited, his romantic options are anything but. Bored with the same old, same old, he finds himself spending more and more time with Cleo, his former piano teacher and current pizza-eating, binge-TV-watching partner.

Already divorced at only twenty-nine, Cleo’s not looking for love. Certainly not with a gorgeous workaholic who usually dates high-powered, MBA-toting supermodels. Although, come to think of it, Sly hasn’t dated anyone in a long time. And Cleo isn’t the only one to notice he seems lonely…

An unexpected weekend trip to Las Vegas forces Cleo to confront her past while Sly slams into his own demons and realizes he’s his own worst enemy. What happens when they cross the line? And then move it, jump over it, trample it, zigzag across it, and forget where the line was in the first place?

Right now you can get the paperback on Amazon, and within a few weeks it’ll show up on the Barnes & Noble website and other bookstore catalogs for ordering.
