Outlaw friends and family are featured in these three novellas where true love lives in small town hearts as well as weary travelers, and big city movers and shakers. Come back to Hope Parish…
Evangeline “Evie” Outlaw has been living in emotional limbo ever since the love of her life, Brody Outlaw, up and left her with triplets to raise on her own in a hostile and unwelcoming town. Now her boys are men and independently carving out their own lives, but still living under the shadow of her husband’s lineage. The terrible Outlaw curse.
It isn’t until River Pearl Sutton comes crashing into her son Braxton’s life that Evie gets a wake-up call in the form of intensely sexy Winchester Sutton, River’s uncle. A sophisticated, international food critic. He’s a man that is hard to ignore with his soft, slow accent, his ice blue eyes that are full of fire, and a body that makes her remember what it was like to be desirable.
But, Win is a Sutton and she married into the Outlaw curse, a woman who spawned the Outlaw Unholy Trinity, a woman who is still technically married. She’d held onto the memory of Brody for thirteen years, never giving up hope he would come back, never believing that he left her voluntarily.
But Win is flesh and blood real, pursuing and charming. Can she find the kind of deep, abiding love she had for Brody?
Or will her loyalty and the bias gossip of the town tear her apart.
Can she finally again find love
Decon West arrives at Columbia University to start his freshman year. But New York City is like an alien planet to him and even though he’s a fish out of water, he takes it in stride. He expected to be homesick. He expected to find the city chaotic. What he hadn’t expected was that the girls would be so aggressive, throwing themselves at him. But, there’s only one woman he’s interested in tracking down and that’s Minnie Tattersall.
Minnie dodged the bullet and resisted the temptation of eighteen-year-old Deke West when she was visiting Suttontowne. Now she’s hard at work on the upcoming collection she and Verity Outlaw will be showing at Fashion Week. She also finds it hard work to get Deke off her mind, but easy to remember that he’s much too young for her. It isn’t until he shows up at the show, and accidentally lands on the runway modeling their clothes that things begin to heat up for them. It’s clear to Minnie that Deke doesn’t much care that he’s taking the New York City fashion scene by storm. He’s hell-bent on breaking down her barriers and having her. How will she resist?
Rory Finnegan had one goal when he got out of the Marines. Find a place where he can settle down and open a tattoo parlor. That’s when his best friend Ethan Fairchild suggests he come to Suttontowne in the Louisiana bayou. It’s there that Rory gets a job bartending for Braxton Outlaw and runs smack full force into gorgeous, too young for him, Savannah Hawkins. To make matters worse, she’s got an over-protective mother and an upper-crust boyfriend. It would be smart he steered clear. But Marines like Rory don’t back down easily, especially after he gets much too involved with the southern beauty.
Savannah Hawkins is not sure what she’s going to do with her life and is quite sick of having everyone dictate to her, especially her family. When she gets a load of pierced, tattooed and gorgeous Rory, her interest goes off the charts. Complication like life decisions and a pre-selected husband seem inconsequential when she gets to know this scarred and battle-hardened warrior. Will she discover the answers she needs or will her coming of age tear her heart apart?
