It’s A Wonderfully Sexy Life

Baltimore beat cop Mandy Delinski isn’t expecting any miracles this Christmas. She’s thirty, a little too round, still single and living with her parents in the ethnic enclave of Highlandtown in Baltimore City. Who could have guessed that her whole life would change before New Year’s Eve? That a simple job policing a Christmas party would find her in the arms of sexy-as-sin bartender, Josh Thornton? That they would be on the brink of making love before the night ended?

That Mandy would find her perfect man in the morgue the next day?

Or that she’d be given a magical chance to go back a week, save Josh…and have the best holiday sex of her life. Does Christmas get any better than this?

Romancing Becky Stone

But after the crushing news that the only way to save her career is to coauthor a book with chauvinistic Adam Maxwell, Becky needs something to go right. And what could be more right than spending an incredible New Year’s Eve in the arms of a seriously sexy stranger?

Only, the man in her bed isn’t going to be a stranger much longer….
