Things I never planned on happening in my life: Getting married, being a mother to a house full of kids, and returning to my small hometown of Billingsley, Texas.
I especially never planned on seeing Tucker Monroe again.
Sexy smile. Country charm.
A man and a life I left behind for a reason.
The only plan I had for myself was my career.
A buyer for one of the largest high end department stores was the only commitment I had time for. The only one I was willing to make.
Now, being left with no choice but to return to Billingsley, I’m finding it hard to remember why I left in the first place. Because all that’s on my mind is Tucker.
He is just as sexy. Just as charming.
Just as dangerous as he used to be…
About Melissa Ellen
I’m the author of The Blackwood Series. I grew up as a book worm, reading anything and everything and still try to read at least a book a week. I’ve always had an active imagination. Luckily, I now have time to put it to good use into stories that are constantly swarming around in my head.
When I’m not writing, you can find me working on architecture projects, buried in a book with a glass of wine (or coffee), playing with my adorable son (I’m not partial at all…his adorableness is a fact), laughing with my hot husband (another fact), or tackling my latest DIY project (and by that I mean putting my hot husband to work).

"Hardy is my
All-time Favorite Male Character in a Romance Comedy" ~ Amy, Once Upon a
Book Blog "Boldly smart and sassy characters." ~ GR Review
From New York Times Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott, comes this downright
delicious peek into the male anatomy... er, mind of Hardy Richard.
There are only two rules:
1. Don’t get too close.
2. Don’t fall in love.
Correction: Don’t ever fall in love. I don’t need the baggage of relationships.
Life should be simple, easy, uncomplicated.
The problem I’m faced with is, if I really believe life should be that easy,
that uncomplicated, and that simple, then why am I still thinking about a woman
I met on a random Monday at the bar? A girl who was never a Gimlet, and always
a Paloma. Yep, I called it all wrong last night and I’m starting to wonder if
my heart will pay the price.
I might have broken rule number one, but rule number two remains firmly intact.
For now. Sort of. Okay, maybe rule two hasn’t been broken, but it’s definitely

saving lives and mending hearts.......
Anthony “Ace” Bailey
I’m not a rules kinda guy
Department Policy? Kinda sucks, but I do what I have to for the job that I
Playing it safe? Not my thing.
Married? No big deal when I know she’s unhappy and scared.
I’m one of those guys – a sniper in the military, a little bit of an
adrenaline junkie, and a member of the Moonshine Task Force. I’ve lived through
My gut has never failed me. It’s my sixth-sense. Warning me of a gunshot coming
my way, of a traffic stop being potentially deadly, or the tingling in the back
of my neck when I go to sleep telling me I’ll be woken up by a call in the
middle of the night. My gut has always kept me honest.
Like the day I walked into The Café and saw the new waitress. There was a ring
on her left hand, but I didn’t care. One look in her eyes told me everything I
needed to know. Her marriage wasn’t one made of love and respect. It was one
made of fear and doubt.
It’s why I ignored that ring, why I arrested her husband, and the reason I’m
willing to take my time. Patience is a virtue, and with this woman, I have it
Meeting Anthony Bailey changed my life. He did things that no one else has ever
done for me.
Feeling safe? Never happened before.
Feeling wanted? It’s been years.
Being independent? I’m learning.
It’s foreign, not having someone question my every move, being able to eat what
I want for dinner, and sitting out on my front porch talking to Anthony every
night while we share a couple beers.
I try to tell myself he’s just being nice; that he’s doing his job and working
within the community. The problem? The night he takes the kiss we both want,
everything changes, and I can no longer deny what I feel. But it doesn’t stop
me from trying – and I learn quickly that Ace knows me better than anyone else
ever has – including myself.
All I can do is hang on, as he takes me on the scariest journey of my life. The
one that bends us until we almost break, and ends with a happily ever after I
never thought I would get.
ACE includes the wedding of a beloved couple, an appearance by Reaper, and the
continuation of EVERYONE falling in love with Caleb!

We all have guilty pleasures.
Mine was the boy my father took in. The guy everyone said I was too good for. The one I knew would ruin me.
But I couldn't help it. The way Noah Greyson's voice sounded when he sang whiskey lullabies to me in the dark; how perfect his arms felt wrapped around my stomach, his nose nuzzled in my hair- that's what made me fall. That intimacy was what made me so very weak. But now millions of women drift off to sleep while Noah sings the love story we wrote, and it was never meant for the world.
The worst mistake I made wasn’t loving him, it was thinking he loved me, too.
When Annie Daschel arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list.
Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted.
See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check.
Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check.
Stand in the middle of Times Square: Check.
Get a job at Wasted Words: Check.
Two things not on her list: Greg Brandon and Will Bailey. And just like that, she finds herself caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules.
List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart.
Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics
