Two brothers. Two sisters. One sweet & sexy rivalry.

Twin brothers and Air Force vets, Tanner and Garrett Mann, return from deployment to find their thriving business burned to the ground. Time for Plan B: Move back to their hometown of Beach Pointe to start over.

But that means running into Paige and Morgan Baxter - gorgeous, curvy, and owners of Two Sisters Cupcakes.

There’s an old diner for sale across town, Garrett’s a great cook, and Tanner has an idea. They’ll make savory cupcakes that men would like. We’re talking bacon and Cheez Whiz. Even better? They'll call it Mann Cakes. Problem is, they end up attracting an unexpected crowd.

Paige is furious. Every man in her life has left her behind, including Tanner. She’s sacrificed everything for her shop. She won’t lose it over some egotistical ex-boyfriend, even if he does have an Air Force-chiseled body. Her younger sister, Morgan, isn’t helping matters. She’s been gaga over Garrett since high school.

To hell with that. If it’s a fight Tanner wants, it’s a fight he’ll get. But how much is Paige willing to risk to win a cupcake war?
One list. Ten names. A past he can't erase.

Deputy Jesse Maddox's reputation in Beach Pointe is... less than stellar. He thought following in the footsteps of his late father, a former cop, would make up for it. Not quite. Every time he closes his eyes, his past is there to haunt him.

After falling asleep on the job (again), the sheriff gives him an ultimatum. Get counseling for whatever's keeping him awake at night or get out. Jesse would rather have a root canal, but he goes anyway, expecting a big waste of time. What he doesn't expect is to fall in love.

Leigh Meriwether is so close to earning her counselor's license, she can taste it. But when Deputy Maddox walks in, she second guesses her career choice. The horror stories she's heard from her clients about him are enough to make anyone cringe. Despite her reservations, she gives him a game plan: make a list of people he's hurt, apologize and make amends. Simple enough.

What's not so simple? Uncovering the real man hidden within. What's worse? Falling for her own client.

If you love hilarious small town romance, quirky characters, and a grab-the-tissues ending, you'll love Jesse's List.
A fake marriage. A real baby. One huge mess.

Avery Price needs quick cash to save her bridal shop. When she discovers a way to win $50,000, she jumps at the chance. The only catch is, she has to get married or at least stage a convincing wedding. Her best bet is Beach Pointe’s most eligible bachelor. But he hates everything to do with marriage.

Veterinarian Dr. Jack Maddox is a magnet for every gold-digger in town, but Avery is the only one who's ever walked out on the chance to share his bed. When he finds her in his kitchen in only an apron, he’s shocked that she’s changed her mind, but there’s a catch (of course).

Though he’d rather poke his eye out with a fork than even pretend to get married, he can handle a little acting for this fun-sized wildcat.

But, starting a family was never part of the deal…

Get ready to fall in love with the swoon-worthy Jack Maddox in the hot standalone 3rd book of the Beach Pointe series. If you love sizzling bedroom shenanigans, dysfunctional family chaos, and a heart-stopping climax you’ll love Mysti Parker’s hilarious romantic comedy.

In the high elf city of Leogard, an elven noblewoman longs to leave her gilded cage. A half-breed former pirate wants nothing more than to escape his guilty past. Easier said than done...

Caliphany Aranea, nearly a century old, leads an enviable life as high elf King Leopold's niece and daughter of Sirius, Leogard's most famous wizard. She is expected to follow in her father's footsteps to lead the Mage Academy and to marry a man she doesn't even like. Yet, she craves a taste of life outside the city walls.

As a young boy, half-elf Galadin Trudeaux witnessed his parents' death at the hands of pirates. After being raised by those same murderers and forced to do their bidding, he escaped and now lives an honest life as a sea merchant and ranger.

When two brutes at Leogard Harbor attempt to kidnap Caliphany while she dreams of faraway lands, Galadin comes to her rescue. Impressed by his skills, she asks him to train her as a ranger. Though he is hesitant at first to train a woman of her class, Caliphany's hefty sack of gold finally persuades him. Unfortunately, her father is not amused, and the two must escape before Caliphany faces a forced marriage and Galadin faces a noose.

From that moment on, to the finale, where Caliphany must decide where her heart truly lies, she and Galadin embark on a fateful journey that will change their lives forever. Can they survive the trials and tragedies ahead to find a love that stands the test of time?

Broken dreams aren’t always the pits.

Luke Martelli had one thing going for him: he knew racecars. But he didn’t get his thrills behind the wheel. Drivers wanted speed and handling, and he could make that happen. He’d been hours away from working his dream job with a pit crew when a freak accident took that chance away.

Now he works a crap job as a parade float builder in Brooklyn. Then Ellison Carlisle, a rich girl from Kentucky, has the nerve to tell him to accept his fate. What does she know about pain? But damn, she’s got the curves to match her smart mouth, and that's a mouth he’s having a hard time resisting.

For Ellie, moving to Brooklyn was supposed to be a fresh start. She’s homesick, but getting away from painful memories in Lexington is worth the change. Until she meets Luke, the hotheaded city boy who’s entirely too sexy for his attitude.

Her track record for boyfriends is 0 for 3. Is it worth the risk to try to break that big chip on Luke’s shoulder, or is he another lost cause?

He doesn't expect that help to be Lena, his sister's college friend from Brooklyn, the one who drank too much and called him...that doesn't matter. She hates the outdoors and flying, but she's hotter than an August day in Kentucky. How's a city girl supposed to do anything for his business? And how's he supposed to ignore those luscious red lips?

Lena Bosko just landed a great new advertising job, but her first client is none other than her friend's brother, Jaxon, the guy she'd once called ... well, that doesn't matter. She can help turn his business around, but first, she'll have to go flying with him -- and she's terrified of flying.

What could be worse – air sickness in a combination hot air balloon and death trap -- or losing her heart to a country boy?
