When You Got A Good Thing (The Misfit Inn Book 1)

Charming, poignant, and sexy, When You Got a Good Thing pulled me in with its sweet charm and deft storytelling, and didn't let go until the very last page. It has everything I love in a small-town romance! ~USA Today Best-Selling Author Tawna Fenske

She thought she could never go home again. Kennedy Reynolds has spent the past decade traveling the world as a free spirit. She never looks back at the past, the place, or the love she left behind--until her adopted mother's unexpected death forces her home to Eden's Ridge, Tennessee.

Deputy Xander Kincaid has never forgotten his first love. He's spent ten long years waiting for the chance to make up for one bone-headed mistake that sent her running. Now that she's finally home, he wants to give her so much more than just an apology.

Kennedy finds an unexpected ally in Xander, as she struggles to mend fences with her sisters and to care for the foster child her mother left behind. Falling back into his arms is beyond tempting, but accepting his support is dangerous. He can never know the truth about why she really left. Will Kennedy be able to bury the past and carve out her place in the Ridge, or will her secret destroy her second chance?

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Q: What makes the Misfit Inn series special?

The Misfit Inn is a quartet of southern romance novels focused on the family saga of the Reynolds sisters and the loves they find along the way, as they come back together as a family after the death of their mother, proving that the family you make is stronger than the one you're born into. Just like my Wishful series, The Misfit Inn quartet is intended to highlight everything that I love about living in the small town South--all the quirks, foibles, and dreams that provide a fabulous backdrop to contemporary romances about stubborn, independent women and the men who love them.

Q: Who would dig these books?

The Misfit Inn is a southern romance series written for anyone looking for family saga romance, where you get to follow the loves of each member of a generation. This quartet explores the relationships between sisters and what the bonds of family truly mean. Many of my readers also enjoy the books of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Kristan Higgins, Melanie Shawn, Ava Miles, and Jill Shalvis.

Q: What should I read while I'm waiting for Book 2?

Book 2 is available for preorder. While you're waiting, grab your copy of ONCE UPON A WEDDING, my first Misfit Inn Meet Cute Romance. If that's not enough, feel free to check out my Wishful series, which highlights everything awesome about love in a small town. This southern romance series has been written so that each story is a standalone that wraps up with a happily ever after by The End. That said, if you want to read them in chronological order I suggest this:

* To Get Me To You (Cam and Norah)

* Be Careful, It's My Heart (Brody and Tyler)

* Know Me Well (Liam and Riley)

* Just For This Moment (Myles and Piper)

* Wish I Might (Reed and Cecily)

* Turn My World Around (Tucker and Corinne)

* Dance Me A Dream (Jace and Tara)

* See You Again (Trey and Sandy)

One Night with a Stranger (Unforgettable Nights Book 1)

She thought all she wanted was a one night stand. But what could a second night hurt?

On the rebound from a bad breakup with Mr. Wrong, Lisa Randall does something she's never done before: has a one night stand with a stranger she meets in a bar. As amazing as the night is, the last thing she expects is to hear from the guy again. But when one night turns into two, and then three, and then more, Lisa wonders whether her infatuation with Matt is keeping her from meeting Mr. Right, or whether a passionate one night stand can actually lead to true love.

Matt Owens has always considered himself the King of Jumping into Things Too Fast. He met his ex on a Tuesday, proposed on Saturday, and married her a month later. This time around he wants to take things slow, enjoy the moment. And the attractive woman he picked up in a bar seems to fit the bill. Lisa doesn't even want to know his last name, let alone plan a future. But as he begins to develop feelings for her, he knows his one big secret could ruin any chance for something more.
