He's Got A Lot To Learn

Scott Matthews had no idea Ginger Winchester was a teacher when they first met—he
didn't even know her last name. That didn't stop them from sharing a night of passion.
Scott hoped he'd see Ginger again—just not in his daughter's new classroom!
Yet, somewhere under that frumpy sweater and chalk dust is the sultry redhead
who's been haunting his dreams.

Smart, sensitive and nurturing, Ginger is everything Scott wants.
But when Ginger discovers she resembles his first wife, she fears stepping in
as a replacement mom. She wants a family, but not this way.
She's happy to offer tips on handling rambunctious kids, and even helps
the Matthews family adopt a big, lovable puppy. But when it comes to winning her heart,
Scott must prove to her that she's more than just a stand-in—she's the one.

I'm thrilled to have this book accepted for publication because the mom in the story gives her all for her kids. It's nice every once in a while to remember the sacrifices moms make, which we sometimes don't even know about. Of course, the heroine's sacrifice leads her to the man she'll come to love, but even moms deserve a treat!

Joe Riley needs to tread carefully with his matchmaking mom until he's reassured of her recovery from a heart attack. Caterer Lisa Meyer agrees to pretend to be his fiancée in order to earn money for a special program for her son. Joe discovers parenting is nothing like heading up a company. It's way more work! So it'll stay strictly business for Joe and Lisa--unless love can find a way.

Families are crazy, right? As much as you love your relatives, sometimes you just want to pull out your hair. This story looks at what it means to be in a family, in what I hope is an entertaining way. Here's a little background:

Mark Collins is driven to prove his worth to the powerful Chicago family that adopted him so long ago. But in order to earn his place, he has to win control of the family company in a contest with his late grandfather's illegitimate daughter. Leanne Fairbanks, a savvy competitor with her own axe to grind, yearns to show the family what they missed by ignoring her all her life. This "Apprentice"-like showdown is soon overshadowed by the competitors' interest in another prize-each other.
