Love Found Me, Book 2 in The Love List Series September 2014 
 


When it’s Chloe Miles turn to pick a name out of The Love List she didn’t expect to find true love. She just wanted to go on a date with a nice, available guy. Not one who drank too much, or was unemployed and wanted to stay that way. Or especially one who didn’t know what monogamy means.



Mitch Brodin didn’t know his heart was in the hands of The Love List. His Fate was set the moment he set foot into Roy's Pet Rescues looking for advice on how to care for new born kittens.



Chloe is vivacious, unpredictable, and tons of fun, while he is methodical, predictable, and well… cynical. He surely hadn’t planned on falling in love. But that’s what you get when you’re not looking for love.

Excerpt:

December 2013
The weather forecast for the Western Washington area, specifically North Seattle, predicted a good five-to-six inches of snow. Brenda Houser watched the flakes float like cotton balls from the sky as she dipped a tortilla chip into a bowl of thick and chunky salsa and popped the morsel into her mouth.

Her boss, Corny Myers, tapped her pencil on Brenda's reception desk to the beat of The Little Drummer Boy, which streamed from the Green Hornet Investigations Bose speakers.

 "Hey, Brenda. I have bad eating habits but I've never started the day with chips and salsa. What's up?" Corny asked.

 "You know how I feel about all the holiday hoopla. I'd rather stick my head in the sand and pull it back out in January."

 "Do you really think Mexican food is going to make you feel better?"

 "Probably not, but a couple margaritas might help."

His request for her to replace an injured cast member of St. Martin's production of A Christmas Carol delights her, but the baronet's granddaughter is also in the cast, dashing any hopes Holly has for her own Christmas love story.

Can't vicars have their own happily-ever afters? After all, it's Christmas.

Set against a backdrop of late Victorian London, and a production of Charles' Dickens beloved, A Christmas Carol, Christmas Stockings brings together two people who are only shy when they are together, and whose fondest wish is about to be granted-and they don't even have to use mistletoe!

Excerpt:

I raised my salty-rimmed margarita, "Let's make a toast to Mr. Langfield; he was kind, kooky, and had poor taste in women."

"Here, here. God bless the silly romantic fool," Kitty cheered and twirled her hair around her finger.

"I second that," Brenda clinked her glass to ours and munched on chips and salsa.

After a sip from my drink my sexy-guy radar started to beep. I did a quick scan of the restaurant and spotted my target. I discreetly waved my hand above my head and said, "Target acquired... target acquired." We laughed until we about peed our pants and then I leaned forward and quietly asked, "Do you think he heard me?" then giggled more. "I've seen my share of gorgeous men, but that guy is smok’n hot."

"Oh boy, is he ever," Kitty and Brenda said in unison and fanned their faces dramatically.

"He's been looking my way. I'm giving him my, 'you can buy me a drink' look."

All of a sudden Kitty rolled her eyes toward the bar and whispered, "Holy moly, he's coming this way."

Sure enough he made his way through the crowd on the dance floor towards our table. Before I hyperventilated from excitement, Kitty kicked me in the shin. "Thanks, I needed that." Kitty could be pretty levelheaded in stressful situations.

Can she pull it all together for the perfect Valentine’s Day celebration?

Excerpt:

"Corny, do you really think that's a good idea?" Brutus tried to whisper, but it sounded like he had laryngitis.
"Shush Brutus; and get your hairy Labrador butt off the bed. You'll wake Steve up before I'm done putting the finishing touches on his first Valentine present." I tried to be quit and gentle as I applied the final touches. Getting Brutus to be quite was a feat all in its own. "What's not to like about vanilla ice cream, whipping cream, nuts, chocolate syrup, and a nice maraschino cherry to top it all off?" I whispered, as I placed the cherry on top the whipping cream.
"Well, for one thing you're covering Steve's dick with a chocolate sundae and like you said, he's asleep." Brutus sounded smug.
