    A Song for Harlan

    A Song for Harlan

    Pickup Men series, book 4, a novella

    Cowboy Harlan Bennett carries the scars of a broken heart left by his ex-husband, who walked out on him and their son four years ago. The last thing he needs is to get involved with another man who has his eyes on the horizon.

    Ben Marshall is a musician at a crossroads, traveling across the country searching for his purpose in life. He never expected to find the place he belongs—and the person he belongs with—in a small California town.

    One night was all they were meant to be, but a rare snowstorm and an inspired song may change everything.

    Love Brokers

    Love Brokers

    Love Brokers series, book 1

    The thing that brings them together might be the very thing that tears them apart.

    Jacob Cruz, aka “Mr. Matchmaker,” has an uncanny knack for knowing which two people are meant to be together, which led to his successful matchmaking business, His Perfect Match. Brant Hudson, aka “Dr. Romance,” is a hopeless romantic with a talent for repairing relationships on the rocks, and his thriving consulting practice expanded into a successful streaming TV show.

    Jacob believes fully in love and has no time for liars and cheats like his ex or charlatans and frauds like Brant, because if there’s one thing he knows, it’s that everyone on reality TV is fake. But when Jacob accuses him of that very thing and exploiting relationships for ratings, Brant is determined to prove Mr. Matchmaker wrong.

    Sparks fly along the way, but even if Brant manages to convince Jacob that he’s the real deal, his TV show still might ruin it all anyway.

    (Note: This book was previously published under the title Mister Romance, and has been heavily revised with new scenes, new secondary characters, and is over 13,000 words longer.)
