What happened when Snow White woke up to her Prince Charming?
When Jaqueline White awoke from a coma, the result of a poisoned apple, her doctor Jacob McIntyre, was by her side. They’d never met, but it was fate that drew them together when he saved her life.
Now, one year later and days away from their wedding, disasters begin to strike in tandem, threatening to ruin the entire day. Jacob and Jackie work tirelessly to put out one fire after another, wondering if these catastrophes and mishaps are a sign from the universe that perhaps they aren’t meant to be after all.
Does true love really conquer all or are curses just not meant to be broken?
Delaney McCallister isn’t looking for a date. She just wants clean pajamas so she can go back home, flop on the couch, and relax. As the spin cycle begins, in walks the most delectable man she’s ever seen—one that clearly doesn’t belong in her small town. She doesn’t belong in his bed, either, but a simple little crush never hurt anyone.

I didn’t want Frankie back. I didn’t want him to stay, but I wanted him to know how much I loved him, why I loved him, and what I would have done to make him happy. Through letter after letter, I poured my heart and soul onto paper and mailed them.
The letters never made it to Frankie. Frankie moved away, but a new man moved into his old place. His name was Colton, and he was the one who received all my letters.

I didn’t know that meeting Colton would also change my life.

The Way We Fell
Ben and Kendall, part one.
(Brand new part of the Legacy world)
One brilliant smile, and my heart beat for what felt like the very first time.
One night as he held my sister and sang to her, it broke.
Years later, his smile is different, and I curse my heart when it beats in an all too familiar way, a way it’s only ever beat for him… again.
He was once hers, could he ever truly be mine?
I am not a bully.
At least not anymore. I’d learned my lesson even before I had all my dreams ripped away.
Then I saw her. I knew I wanted her to be mine.
I made so many mistakes, but she let me in and gave me her heart.
Now I want to keep it forever.
How do I ask the woman of my dreams to spend the rest of her life with me? Simple, just ask.
At least I thought it would be that easy.

Fighting For Our Forever… Baby Style by Heidi McLaughlin
This was a pure comic relief of Jamie and Ajay road to delivery. How family is not always blood but those who accept you and love you just the same.”
Pure Rose by Kathy Coopmans
Now talk about going after what you want and desire…. Let an Owen come to my door, this forty year old woman will do the exact same thing. I related to Rose on so many levels. It is always all about the kids.
Waking Up To Forever by Amy Briggs
I swear I would have lost my mind. This book was crazy. Determined with an end game Jacob and Jackie were dealt a hand leading to their wedding day. They displayed a calm united front but I know personally I would have lost it when the first thing happened. Funny how things come full circle with the oddest connection.
Crush by Adriana Locke
Now talk about sexy as all get out. Boone and Delaney was HOT. Both direct and to the point. Making a chance situation a moment that was and is unforgettable.
Love, Rose by Shari J Ryan
Dang, that story was therapeutic. If only many women was a strong as Rose. Me included. I may have to adopt that idea as my own. This short is a MUST read.
Reuniom by Julie A. Richman
This short took a twist in turn to somewhere even I didn’t see coming. I knew there was another party at play but definitely not him. Sweet with a little boost of self- esteem.
Coming Home by HJ Bellus
When I tell you this short has me missing the books that started it all…. MAN!!!! I had all the feels and highlights while reading Annie story. The sprinkles are back ladies and gentlemen. YES!!!!!!
Rose’s for Rachel by Sam JD Hunt
This was a very unique story. It had great sentimental value.
Finely and Sebastian by Tara Leigh
So I am mad it ended that way because I needed no more like wanted, one more page. I have found a new to me author just because I need to know what happens next. Sebastian…. YES PLEASE.
Whiskey Roses by Kaylee Ryan
To be cherished is a dream many have but Saylor is living. I got the romantic feels all over while reading this short about their anniversary.
Where I Escape by Michelle Dare
The hottest scene in an office goes to…. Blair and Finn. What did I get myself into reading this glimpse into their story? Another book added to my TBR list.
Capturing Tomorrow by Haylee Thorne
Talk about romantic gesture… Mr. Ray, Mr. Ray, Mr. Ray….. you stole the show in this one. Cave man act, no problem if it always end that way.
Coming Up Roses by Michelle Windsor
They always say that you don’t know who’s watching so always be 100. This was a fun read and I would love to see what happens next with Fin and Chloe.
Mine to Protect by Kristin Mayer
Love that a military novella made its way into the fold. Marine at that… This was a complete start to finish with a little crazed action. Something everyone will enjoy.
The Way We Fell by MJ Fields
A chance meeting that explored desire, truths, and HEA… I look inside of what determination brings. This was all that in a nut shell.
Ring Me by Rebecca Brooke
This was a nice coming together short. It doesn’t always take grand gestures just the right words.
