Making the Love List - Out Now!
Tall, Dark and Driven ~ Book 1


He's #5 on her Love List. Tall, dark...and completely of limits.


After a too-close call with death, Yasmin Katsalos is checking some things off her Love List List—things to do after you thought you were going to die. Fun fashion choices? Check. Purple hair and a cute diamond nose stud? Check, check. Now she's on to item #5: a flirty fling with a man who's tall, dark, rich...and totally out of her league.


And restaurateur Lane Griffiths definitely fits the bill.


Lane isn't just out of Yasmin's league. He's also her brother's best friend and therefore off-limits. Now that they're working together on renovations for her family's wedding hall, however, Yasmin has plenty of opportunities to bewitch, bother, and boldly seduce. He's reserved. She's relaxed. The only thing they share is a spark of attraction that's too strong to resist. But is Lane just another item on her love list... or has Yasmin found something on her list that will last?

Tall, Dark and Driven ~ Book 2

Two rival families. Two competing wedding venues. One wedding of the season. 


Nick Katsalos has a foolproof plan to save his parents' floundering wedding venue. The last thing he expects is for Erin Patterson, the captivating daughter of his parents' biggest rival, to waltz in and charm the client who could finally get the family business back on track. Nick would be furious--if only he could stop thinking about her.

When Erin and Nick enter into a wager to determine who will win the contract she prepares for the worst ... and is surprised by the glimpses of warmth she sees in the man behind the numbers. But Erin isn't about to forfeit what could be the biggest wedding of the decade to a man as cold as Nick. Especially since securing it means she could finally prove to her father she's just as capable of handling the family business as him. 

But as the competition heats up, Erin and Nick must decide what's more important—winning or love.
