Open-minded adult readers only, please. This is an MMF romance. If you don’t mind a few four-letter words and steamy scenes, and you want a book about enduring love, loyalty, and kindness, come on in and enjoy the fun.

Mayor Jake Fletcher’s small town of Sweetwater Springs is in jeopardy. Their coffers are drying up, thanks to mother nature destroying the major access to the town. Confessing as much to his constituents brings surprises his way:
–Ideas to fix the crisis flooding in
–Two women willing to spearhead the resulting Holiday Extravaganza. One of them, Dixie Jo DeLuca, is an attractive, outgoing real estate agent with a smile that delivers a gut punch.
There’s no time to waste. Jake and Dixie work together, friendly but cautious around each other, flirting a little, but recognizing they’re divorcees with baggage…and three daughters between them. They need to work closely together over the next two months. Any attempt at a relationship could put a strain on their endeavors and their work is too important to the town to jeopardize.
Despite those concerns, their attraction grows. Soon, they agree to a secret affair. They’re two reasonable adults, right?
But a bigger picture has each of them dealing with family concerns as well. Dixie faces an MIA ex, a teen daughter, and a mom pushing her toward an affair. Jake’s sister is divorcing and he’s her attorney, his unpredictable and self-centered ex is coming for Thanksgiving, and he’s harboring a long-kept family secret that he’ll eventually have to reveal to Dixie, even if his honesty means he might lose her.
Amid the festival whirlwind, their day jobs, and daily life with extended family and three children, can Jake and Dixie carve out enough time to build a relationship? And even if that’s possible, are they open to risking their hearts — and those of their children — again?
Warning: The author is not responsible if pizza and cake (as a meal) give you cravings. Contains two reasonably sane adults feeling out of control, sometimes precocious children, and some hot/sweet loving. It also has a not-quite-normal Thanksgiving dinner. Brace yourself. The folks in Sweetwater Springs are a force to be reckoned with.
- Small town Arkansas
- Slow burn romance
- Sizzling open door love scenes (18+)
- Family life with the good and bad
- Book 4 in series – standalone, but better read in order as characters from previous books appear in this and future books.

If you’ve ever been betrayed, you know it hurts. It cuts deeper when it’s by your identical twin brother. After one fateful night in college, he ruined our relationship, my future, and I vowed to never speak to him again. Life, however, is unpredictable and seven years later, I’m stuck in a small town in Montana working alongside him for a year or I risk losing my inheritance. For a man who owns an entire Armani suit collection and an acute allergy to emotions, this is a problem. I thought I could get in and get out and go back to my life in Manhattan unscathed—act professional, like the businessman I am. But I didn’t account for meeting her, my brother’s best friend. One fiery kiss with a woman I have no business desiring—my complete opposite—everything changes, and I’m faced with revisiting a past I swore to forget if I want to make her mine.
