Olivia is a sexy, independent, business woman who’s been married to Mark for six years. He is everything that Olivia wants in a husband, except for the fact that he’s a quick pumper and extremely boring in bed. He has no thrill or desire of being able to please her which sends her in the arms of another man.
At the beat of a song, Zay erotically sweeps Olivia off of her feet. He’s a handsome, well educated, wealthy bachelor that can catch any woman’s attention. However, he’s put them on hold just to win over Olivia.
What happens when vows are broken, boundaries are crossed, and friends become enemies? Will Olivia fight for a sexless, mind-numbing marriage or will she keep grinding on that wood and riding Zay like a surfboard? All is fair in love and war, but all bets are off when Zay and Olivia unexpectedly find themselves Drunk In Love.
This novel is sassy, edgy, amusing and life like.
Maddy Bainbridge left her Jersey Shore home town right after high school, determined to put as many miles as possible between herself and her many meddling relatives.
Now she’s back in Paradise Point — an unemployed single mother whose only option is to accept her mother Rose’s offer of a job and a place to live.
But it doesn’t take Maddy long to discover that the things about your mother that made you crazy at 17 make you even crazier at 32. Rose’s critical comments bring out Maddy’s inner teenager and by the beginning of December, the end is in sight. Maddy would stay there at the Candlelight Inn, her mother’s popular B&B, through Christmas for her daughter Hannah’s sake, but once the New Year rolled around …
And then fate, in the form of an online auction battle over a Russian samovar that looks like Aladdin’s lamp, brings home-town hero Aidan O’Malley into her life and suddenly Maddy begins to believe anything is possible.
A child’s dreams, an old woman’s memories, the joys and heartaches that come with being part of a family, the thrill of new love and the deep comfort of love that stood the test of time — it all comes together that one special holiday season when even the most battered hearts open just wide enough to let a miracle or two slip through.
USA Today bestselling author Barbara Bretton has been hailed as a “monumental talent” (Affaire de Coeur) and now she delves deeply into the mysteries of family and shows us that even the most independent woman is still a daughter at heart.

“I am his muse. But not for long…”
When Mammon, the Prince of Greed, ‘acquires’ a half-blood slave known as ‘Muse’ for three nights, and bespells her with tales of a world where people live like kings and queens among towers of steel and glass, the seed of hope takes root in Muse’s soul. But hope, for a half-human half-demon creature like her, is a dangerous thing. Especially when that tentative hope springs from the honeyed words of a Prince of Hell. What is Mammon’s price for freedom?
Meanwhile Da’mean, her ruthless owner, would rather see her dead, than free. She belongs to him. She is his muse. And no beast will take her from him.
The netherworld is harsh and violent. Muse’s demon kin are merciless, blood-hungry beasts, but little do they know, Muse has something far more dangerous coiled inside her, desperate for a taste of freedom.

Editorial Goodreads Reviews for Wings Of Hope
What a sensational read!
Loved, loved, LOVED this novella!…I got happily lost in the descriptions of the demon realm, the ramblings of Muse’s broken mind, Mammon’s murky machinations…
I was totally unprepared for this novella. It’s absolutely spectacular and so emotionally charged…

Editorial Reviews for The Veil Series
This is a fantastic book and one of my new favorites! …a brilliant and original tale, entwined with a fascinating element of romance. I am eager to dive into the next book in the series to see what happens with these fantastic characters.
Bitten By Books
Gripping from the start, full of complex characters, detailed & layered storytelling, great twists.
I absolutely adored this book and this series so far. It’s unlike anything I’ve read before and probably will read for awhile.
Happy Tails & Tales
It goes to the excellence of writing skill when you love, and hate, ALL of the characters so much. Seriously, I think it could have had a bad plot and I would have loved the characters. BUT the plot is amazing. You’ll never be able to guess what’s really going on because it’s all about the unveiling.
Nocturnal Predators Reviews
I almost cried. It was THAT heart wrenching. After getting slapped upside the head with plot twists every five pages during the WHOLE book I still didn’t see that ending coming.
Nothing is as it seems and it’s all too easy to get caught in Muse’s story as the plot twists and turns.
From page one I was intrigued and as I turned the final page I still wanted more.
