Cora Stevens was on the verge of having it all before her life changed forever. She was betrayed by the one person she loved most in the world, and everything came crashing down around her, leaving her lost and vulnerable. When life dealt her another painful blow, she ran from Boston and its dark memories.
She wanted to start over, to forget her past and forge a new life. Only the past has a way of coming back to haunt you, and she ran headfirst into him when he came into her ER.
Now everything’s changed.
Four years ago, Shaw Chandler hurt the one person who meant more to him than anyone. Now he has the chance to set that hurt right and get back his best friend and the one woman he’s never been able to forget. The woman he loves with everything in him.
He’s determined to win her back and earn her forgiveness.
But there are some things Shaw doesn’t know, and it’s possible Cora’s secrets will tear them even further apart.
So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama on you. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.
Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my family and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
Adeline Rodriguez left her violent past behind, buried her secrets and started over in Verona Bay. Now a successful co-owner in a local pet grooming business, she’s made a life for herself in this idyllic community, and has real friends. Thanks to her past, the only thing she hasn’t mastered yet is a real relationship. And when circumstances lead her to finally let her guard down with sexy Mac Collins, he completely ghosts her. Her first instinct is to close herself off again, but she decides to confront him instead—and that fateful decision puts her directly in the crosshairs of a killer.
Others can destroy you…
Mac has wanted Adeline since the moment they met, but she made it clear that she didn’t want a relationship. So he kept his distance. When they’re trapped together in a remote cabin, things change between them. But Mac’s past has come back to haunt him, so he pushes her away to protect her. Unfortunately, it’s already too late. Adeline is now a target too. To save her, Mac has no choice except to end the threat. Only then can he try to win over the woman he can’t live without. But winning over the feisty Adeline might prove to be harder than stopping a killer.
Author note: All books in the Verona Bay series may be read as stand-alones.

If you’re looking for haters-to-lovers romance with a sexy, cocky hero and a sassy, quick-witted heroine, this one is just for you. #slowburn #highschooldrama
Although this cannot be considered a ‘dark romance’, please take note that this book contains many triggers that may be offensive such as suicide (before the book begins) and bullying. In particular, there are some racial slurs. As a woman of color myself, I fully understand how hurtful these words can be. I am no stranger to them either. However, I did not want to tiptoe around this issue or sugarcoat the severity of it. I wanted to highlight how damaging such slurs (or any kind of name-calling for that matter) can be to the person on the receiving end. It also contains strong language and sexual content and is not recommended for readers under 18 years of age or sensitive readers.
Number cruncher by day, raging romance novelist by night; Jacqueline’s creative inspiration stems from romance and all its literary and rom-com depictions.

Her guy means the world to her, and so does her cat; sometimes even in that order. Her Mum is her hero, hands down. She‘s a proud Queen of Innuendo, champion of Name That Tune, and has never met a cliffhanger she didn’t like. She lives in the foothills of the beautiful Canadian Rockies with her British cowboy and their Norwegian Forest Cat, Winston Churchill.
He’s not her teacher anymore, but he can still teach her a few things.
Welcome to Seattle, the Emerald City and home to The Single Moms of Seattle. Three sexy single ladies who drink a ton of wine every Saturday night, bitch about life, have each other’s backs, are the ultimate mama bears, and hope to one day, just maybe find love again.
This is Celeste’s story …
Fifteen years ago, Celeste was eighteen, in love and on the honor roll.
Then she got pregnant.
Now, a widow and a single mom, she does her best to give her daughter, Sabrina, a good life.
But something is missing in her world.
Back when he taught her math, Celeste didn’t have a crush on Mr. Travis, but that doesn’t mean she’s not hot for teacher now or able to ignore her rampant fantasies.
All Max wanted to do was buy was a pair of jeans. However, when he bumped into his former student, Celeste, he ended up with so much more.
She’s not a kid anymore and it’s impossible for him to stay away from her. Even when he knows he should.
But an angry student is out to wreak havoc for them all. One who hates Sabrina, and wants to cause problems for Max and Celeste.
Like love, high school can be a battlefield, only neither of them knew just how dangerous it could be until the scandal explodes like a grenade. Celeste and Sabrina’s relationship hangs precariously in the balance, and Max isn’t sure if he should stay and fight for the woman he’s falling for, or get out of dodge before everything he’s worked so hard for goes up in smoke.
**Note: This book can be read as a standalone. It includes lots of steamy scenes, cursing, a sexy alpha male, and of course as with all my books, this has an HEA and no cliffhanger or cheating. If you liked my single dad series, then you’ll love this spin-off trilogy.
A West Coast baby born and raised, Whitley is married to her high school sweetheart and together they have two beautiful daughters and a fluffy dog. She spends her days making food that gets thrown on the floor, vacuuming Cheerios out from under the couch and making sure that the dog food doesn’t end up in the air conditioner. But when nap time comes and it’s not quite wine o’clock, Whitley sits down, avoids the pile of laundry on the couch, and writes.
A lover of all things decadent; wine, cheese, chocolate and spicy erotic romance, Whitley brings the humorous side of sex, the ridiculous side of relationships and the suspense of everyday life into her stories. With single dads, firefighters, Navy SEALs, mommy wars, body issues, threesomes, bondage and role-playing, Whitley’s books have all the funny and fabulously filthy words you could hope for.

Before and/or After you attend the Knockout Book Bash Signing you can also check out the amazing permanent exhibits at the Muhammad Ali Center for FREE! Admission is included in the price of your Knockout Book Bash ticket.
Through dramatic multimedia presentations, interactive exhibits, historical video, countless images, and artifacts, you will learn about Muhammad Ali and his significant impact on the world: how Muhammad obtained greatness and then used it as a catalyst to do great things for the world and, in turn, inspire others to do the same. The visitor experience incorporates the six core principles of Muhammad Ali’s life: Confidence, Conviction, Dedication, Giving, Respect and Spirituality.
There’s many things to see and do with these interactive exhibits: Train With Ali
An interactive and truly fun exhibit for kids of all ages, Train With Ali, is a re-creation of Muhammad Ali’s Deer Lake, Pennsylvania Training Camp. Visitors can try their hand at shadow boxing with the Champ, practice their rhythm on the speed bag, feel the power of an Ali punch on a heavy bag, and learn the techniques of the sport from champion boxer (and Muhammad’s daughter) Laila Ali.
These blue, interactive “Journeylines” feature highlights from Muhammad Ali’s life (in English and in Spanish).
While Muhammad Ali’s athletic achievements and flamboyant style were widely known, his kindness and generosity are qualities that received little or no coverage in the press—in part, because Ali has long believed that charitable acts are a human obligation but should not be broadcast. In the interactive Giving Pavilion, visitors will enjoy narrative photos and personal accounts that speak to occasions of Ali’s giving- or his approach to life that are the substance of the pavilion.
Commit to a pledge or affirmation, smile and say “cheese,” and receive a take-away poster to remember!
Ali, All the Time
Ali All the Time offers visitors the opportunity to view fifteen of Muhammad’s most famous fights “on demand.” This exhibit also incorporates pre- and post- fight material and original broadcast commentary.
These exhibits are just a few of what you can see and do at the Muhammad Ali Center during the Knockout Book Bash!
