The Odds

Hot guitar player Angus Mackay learned how to escape unhappiness early in life. The only love he’d ever felt came from his big sister, Debbie. When he learns she is dying, he’s forced to return home and face not only his demons, but hers as well. He must deal with Steven, the lover he left behind, who helped Debbie raise her daughter, Sherry. But Angus is in for a rude shock. Not only must he confront his past, but what could have been his future because Eli Borich, a man he had an amazing one-night stand with, is Steve’s lodger, friend, and employee. Can Angus cope with it all?

Eli had his hopes set on a musical career and a relationship with Angus before they’d even met. Given the chance to play one night in Angus’s band, his hopes rose then fell when Angus split town and didn’t look back. Eli’s musical hopes have died but he senses that Angus isn’t as indifferent as he initially seems. What are the odds that Eli’s luck is about to change for the better?

His Secretary’s Secret

Who do you want to be?

Amelia Burke knows the answer to that question. She wants to be a winner. With the dream of building her own makeup line, she goes undercover and applies as secretary to the CEO of 2B Cosmetics in hopes of discovering inside information on the company that swindled her father out of his life’s work.

CEO of 2B Cosmetics, Rex Barranger, plans to prove himself to his father by developing an innovative cosmetics line that will leave his mark on his family’s company. However, the Board of Directors has threatened replacement if he doesn’t keep the brand relevant with profitable, practical products.

Her job secured, Amelia plays her role to the hilt, never expecting to find kinship, understanding, and an undeniably heated connection to the CEO that leaves her forgetting her purpose. Torn between loyalty to her father’s memory and her new love, Amelia works with Rex to bring her father’s cosmetics to life before her deception destroys both their careers and their hearts.
