The Cooper brothers receive the shock of their lives when their deceased father, owner of the lucrative Guac Olé company, wills away their inheritances to three random women.
No one’s more surprised when Jack Cooper leaves the family estate to music superstar Macy Young than his oldest son. Seeing his childhood memories being handed over to his high school rival—the first woman to break his heart—stings, especially when Gavin is left only a pair of old reading glasses and a cryptic note. Luckily, Macy can’t sell the house for one year—plenty of time for Gavin to find a way to get it back.
Living in the harsh spotlight of country music fame has cost Macy, and a little hometown peace and quiet just might heal her soul. But giving up and giving back Gavin’s greatest prize may not be the tune she plans to sing.
Can a country star and a country veterinarian find a way to bury their animosity and rediscover their first love in the process?
||Monica Tillery lives in Texas with her own real-life romance hero and two wonderful sons. When she’s not reading and writing romance, Monica can be found enjoying her family, hanging out and playing games with friends, and wasting time online.

Gage Cooper has always wanted the family cabin. Not only for the oil on the property, but as a way to prove to his father that Gage’s past doesn’t define his future. When his dad wills the land to stranger Charlotte Wilkinson and all Gage gets is a mysterious key, he’s determined to do anything to get his rightful inheritance back.
Charlotte Wilkinson never expected to inherit a piece of property in Sweet Ridge, Texas—the Aussie businesswoman is focused on building an environmental analyst career here in the States. But the moment arrogant oil-man Gage Cooper walks into her office accusing her of seducing his father, all plans for selling the property to him fly out the window.
Then fate threatens to send her back to Australia and the dueling duo are forced to accept a fake marriage to keep their dreams alive. But as they discover common ground and a surprising chemistry together, suddenly Gage must decide what’s worth more: the land he’s always coveted or a future with Charlotte.
Bestselling author Nicole Flockton writes sexy contemporary romances, seducing you one kiss at a time as you turn the pages. Nicole likes nothing better than taking characters and creating unique situations where they fight to find their true love.
On her first school report her teacher noted “Nicole likes to tell her own stories”. It wasn’t until after the birth of her first child and after having fun on a romance community forum that she finally decided to take the plunge and write a book.
Apart from writing Nicole is busy looking after her very own hero – her wonderfully supportive husband, and two fabulous kids. She also enjoys watching sports and, of course, reading.

He goes undercover boss to find out how he can steal back those shares, but surprisingly loses his heart to Becca instead. What he does discover is a secret that could blow apart not only Becca’s world but his whole family. Now Grayson must determine whether it’s better to follow his head or his heart.

Welcome to my stop on the #ChickLitMonth A to Z Scavenger Hunt! My letter is V for Vixen!
In my Bachelors of Buttermilk Falls series, I have a fabulous vixen/villain character, Caitlin Reynolds, who I have loved from book one. She’s just soooooo evil in books 1 (Batter Up) and 2 (Tangled Up) as the supreme nemesis for my heroines that when I set out to write her story in book 3 (Kiss and Make Up), I had my work cut out for me!
And I loved each and every minute of it. I started in Book 2 by turning Caitlin’s world upside down. Book 3 then became my opportunity to get in her head and show she was more than the town’s spoiled rich girl, and I think I did it.
You can read an excerpt from Kiss and Make Up here.
Thanks for letting me share my favorite vixen with you! Let’s get to some prizes!
Want to win a Kindle Paperwhite + $100 Amazon gift card? Visit each of the 26 stops on the #ChickLitMay A to Z Scavenger Hunt and collect the alphabet word at each stop. Submit the A-Z list of words via e-mail with the subject line “A to Z Scavenger Hunt Entry.” Entries will be accepted thru May 22 at midnight Eastern Time. Super easy and you could win!
In Tangled Up, my hero, Brandon, concocts a special drink for my heroine called Abby’s Potion. The drink is now making a hilarious special appearance in The Holiday Hook Up, which I’m writing now.
Leave a comment with your favorite summer drink (nonalcoholic or alcoholic) and be entered to win an electronic copy from by backlist. Right now, I’m loving Wegman’s Frizzante European Soda in Blood Orange. It’s amazing! If you live in an area that has a Wegmans, try it!
HOP to the NEXT LETTER!
Head on over to W

Happy Spring! I, for one, am so happy to say a big ‘ole see ya to Winter and am looking forward to warm months ahead reading great books.
All three books are part of the Sweet Texas Secrets trilogy that I had so much fun being a part of. When guacamole mogul Jack Cooper dies in small town Sweet Ridge, Texas, he leaves his three sons an inheritance they never expected … true love!
I had a blast building the world of Sweet Ridge, Texas and developing all our heroes and heroines with Monica Tillery and Nicole Flockton. The series has lots of love, a little mystery and a whole lot of guacamole.
So, what are you reading this spring? Leave a comment for a chance to win a $5.00 Amazon gift card.

Hello my name is … Robyn, and I love this hop! I’ll be giving away two electronic copies from my back list so be sure to comment.
In my latest release, Kiss and Make Up, my heroine is known for a blue clutch she’s carried around throughout the series.
I think what’s inside a purse can tell a lot about a person. Here are five things in mine!
- My Kindle with a hot pink case. I take it everywhere I go. I have a three hour round-trip commute for work and would never survive without it!
- Peppermint chapstick. Something else I’d never survive without and absolutely love. I love this product so much that I also keep one in my car and one in my coat pocket.
- Clinique CC Cream. A total splurge last weekend and I love it.
- My Coach glasses. A new for me in 2015. It was finally time to get glasses – and well, I went kicking and screaming, but now I LOVE them.
- Nine West wristlet. I keep it in my purse to hold my phone and keys so I’m not constantly having to dig around for them. Plus, if I’m running out during the day for lunch or coffee, I can just take the wristlet and not my whole purse.
Share 3 things in your purse right now for a chance to win from my back list!
Thanks for stopping by and hop to the next!

Happy 2016! I can’t think of a better way for a writer to start of the New Year than a release. Kiss and Make Up is Book 3 of my Bachelors of Buttermilk Falls series. It’s a super cute small town romance with just a touch of magic.
One of my favorite scenes to write is the first scene between my hero and heroine. In Kiss and Make Up, Josh and Caitlin have history, and thanks to a one night stand they now have a present and future that neither expected. When Josh comes home to Buttermilk Falls to face his new reality, he catches Caitlin in the arms of his best friend, Adam, at the Buttermilk Tavern and all hell breaks loose.
Enjoy an excerpt!
It only took Josh three seconds to make his way to the bar and pull Caitlin off Adam. “What the hell do you two think you’re doing?”
“Josh!” Caitlin’s eyes widened, and she stepped away from Adam. “What are you doing here?”
He ignored her question, glaring at his best friend. Make that ex-best friend. “When did this start up?”
Adam wiped his mouth with the back of his hand, and that move caused Josh to fist his own. A small town throwdown was about to happen.
“Buddy, it’s not what you think.”
Caitlin interjected, stepping in between them. “Unless, what you think is that I’m crazy about this guy.” She wrapped her bare arms around Adam and squeezed. “Because I totally am.”
“You are?” Josh glanced down at Caitlin, his gaze resting on her pretty blue sundress, her long brown hair swept up in a ponytail. He’d seen her in tighter outfits—hell, he’d peeled one off her last summer. This new look was different—not sexy—but pretty. She looked happy. Did Adam do that for her?
He needed to get a hold of the situation because all eyes were on him. This town was small and the people in it liked to talk. He didn’t need to be tomorrow’s gossip at the Star Lite diner or the Spring Curls beauty salon. “Well, that’s great.” He shoved his hands in his pockets. “I’m happy for you two.”
“Honey, we should really be going.” Caitlin linked arms with Adam. “My mother’s watching the kids, and she’s probably exhausted by now. Will you be stopping by to see them while you’re here, Josh?”
“Of course.” He motioned for the bartender and ordered a Corona. “Tomorrow. If that’s okay with you?”
“That would be fine.” Her hazelnut eyes locked with his.
“Good. I’ll call you in the morning,” He added under his breath as the bartender handed him his beer, “Maybe you’ll answer.”
Caitlin swung her purse over her shoulder. Josh recognized it as the same one she’d had the last time they’d left the bar together. Was his best friend really going home with her? Just how far had they progressed in their relationship? He took a long swig of his beer, contemplating that answer.
“Hey.” Adam tapped his shoulder. “We’ll see you tomorrow.”
“Yeah, have a great night, man. Make sure you use protection,” Josh muttered and drank his beer.
“What did you say?” Caitlin came up to him, arms folded, eyes blazing.
“Nothing. Just making sure my buddy protects himself.”
“Joshua Stevens.” Her voice rose just as the song ended. “You don’t get to saunter back into town in your designer suit and call me a whore.”
“I didn’t call you a wh—”
“Who I leave this bar with and what we do is none of your business. What? Did you think I was going to sit around and hope that one day you’d come knocking on my door and want to be in my life—in our children’s lives?”
Adam reached for Caitlin’s hand. “Caitlin, let’s go. You two can talk this out tomorrow.” He hesitated, adding, “In private.”
“Good idea,” Josh said flatly.
Caitlin didn’t budge from her spot. Her eye lashes lowered. “You haven’t changed one bit.”
Josh laughed sarcastically. “And neither have you. Guess my prediction in high school came true. At least you ditched the tight dresses, or are you having trouble squeezing into them these days?”
And that did it. The bitch slap she’d given him in high school didn’t even compare to the one she delivered in the bar. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. The sting he could handle and, after his last comment, deserved.
Her scent—now swirling around him—was another matter entirely. A fragrance so powerful he’d spent countless hours in the lab trying to replicate it. He realized now that what he’d created was nowhere near as intoxicating as the real thing.
As Adam ushered an infuriated Caitlin out of the tavern, Josh turned toward the bar, ignoring the questioning stares.
Home sweet freakin’ home.
Kiss and Make Up and Tangled Up are available on Amazon. Batter Up (Book 1 in the Bachelors of Buttermilk Falls Series) is available for a limited time for $0.99 in the Hot Hometown Hunk boxset.

I absolutely love holiday themed and winter romances. I’ve written two so far, slid X-mas into my latest work that takes place in August and am about to start the Holiday Hookup, my final book in my Batter Up series. The magic of the holidays is so fun to write, and for me, it’s X-mas all year round because I’m often finishing a holiday romance in June when it’s 80 degrees!
This year, I’ve read a number of great holiday and winter romances including these five, which I highly, highly recommend grabbing!
Holiday Hoopla, Christmas Clash and Candlelight Conspiracy by Dana Volney. You can pick up all 3 books in her Season of Love bundle out now!
Holiday Sparks by Shannon Stacey. This novella came out a few years ago and it so cute. Loved it!
Yours at Midnight by Robin Bielman. Another fun novella ringing in the New Year.
All of these book are short and sweet novellas that I just know will make you smile as much as they did for me!
Finally, I have two holiday romances currently in $0.99 bundles. Less on Amazon!
Holiday Wedding is part of the Second Time Around collection, which is a fab bundle if you enjoy reunion-themed romances.
Christmas Dinner is part of the Holiday Fling collection, and who couldn’t use a fling with a few book boyfriends after the holidays!
Have a wonderful holiday! I hope you will take a moment to sign up for my e-newsletter (on my home page). In addition to exclusive updates, I love to do exclusive gift card giveaways to my subscribers.
And speaking of giveaways! For a chance to win one of two electronic copies of my romantic comedy, Destination Wedding, share your favorite book of 2015 in the comments below.
