My Jingle Bell Heart
(Elves After Dark #7)
Release Date: Nov 20, 2020
I was an elf, but not a good one. I was too tall. My ears weren’t pointy enough. I couldn’t make toys. Basically, I was a failure.
I grew up with Nic and Holly—Santa and Mrs. Clause—and I suppose they had a soft spot for me. After being kicked out of every creative department at Santa Claus, Inc., Int’l., I was sent to the Special Case Unit. I was assigned a family going through a crisis—charged with bringing comfort and cheer to a special little girl who needed all of it she could get. I didn’t expect to meet a wonderful human man appeared to have the weight of the world on his broad shoulders, and I certainly didn’t expect I’d want to help him carry it. The case was difficult, but I was dedicated. I definitely didn’t anticipate falling in love along the way, though.
Going into the holiday season with a sick daughter was as heartbreaking as it sounded. My little girl, Danielle, had been diagnosed with a dangerous disease, and the treatment was doubly as harsh. In my world, there were no silver linings—until Jinson Bell, a nursing assistant, walked into Dani’s room and gave her something to smile about. He also gave me friendship as I faced my worst fears. He was kind, adorable, much younger than me, and he had a sweet tooth like none I’d ever seen. He knew what we needed before we needed it, and it was easy to fall in love with him. It wasn’t the best timing in the world, but he was there when I needed someone to lean on. When he laughed, it was like bells were ringing, and while I wasn’t sure how I’d do it—he was only at the hospital temporarily for training—I had to find a way to make him mine.
Heart of Stone
Release Date: Sept 10, 2020
“Hi! I’m Dr. Dream, and I’m probably the hottest guy you’ll ever meet. I have silver hair, but I’m young at heart. I have lots of fans, but I’m looking for my Number One. Is it you, younger guy? Hit me up!”
ER Deputy Chief Stone Dooley got the surprise of his life when he learned his twin daughters had signed him up for a gay dating site, without his knowledge, three years after he became a widower.
What was supposed to be a quick drink and an apology for his daughters’ prank, turned into tentative friendship and an agreement to swap services—Stone would take care of the younger man’s ailing grandfather, if the young guy would help out with childcare for his daughters over the summer.
Twists and turns test their blossoming friendship. Grief, loss, secrets, and a threat to tear his family apart all test Stone’s limits to his breaking point.
What is the key to weathering the storms heading in Stone’s direction? Maybe a blond-haired young man with jade green eyes could crack the Heart of Stone?
This book is an age-gap MM romance. It is part of the May-December Hearts Collection, but it is a stand-alone story that ends with a happily ever after.
A Wise Heart
Release Date: July 16, 2020
A wise man once said a person was only as old as they felt. Sadly, most days, I felt ancient. I also felt lonely, especially after my mother dropped an atom bomb on me, so on the eve of my thirty-ninth birthday, I determined it was my right to celebrate any way I chose.
Fate was definitely a cruel mistress when she brought a gorgeous, YOUNG, redheaded grad student wearing sexy leather pants into my life that night, and now, I couldn’t get him out of my head. I was supposed to be the mature adult who knew when to walk away from a precarious situation. How could his shining, hazel eyes with flecks of gold make it so hard for me to see the line I shouldn’t cross?
A wise man once screamed, “Get your act together, Monroe, and grow the f*@k up.” Sadly, I stopped listening to that wise man… and any others in my life… a long time ago. I was a spoiled, little rich boy, and I liked to have my fun. A possession arrest didn’t seem like too big a deal until I was informed by my uncle how much it could impact my future. When I arrived in Washington, DC, to confess my sins to my father, I decided one last night of fun was in order because I would be going on lockdown for a long time. The man I met that night? Oh, Daddy!
Neither of us had any idea what the cosmos had in store. God knew, if I had my way, I would make sure the man never left me behind. Of course, I was immature enough to think every love story had a happy ending. Could I stick a pin in my overinflated ego and learn to be the man he deserved?
