Step out of the winter chill and into the warmth of Fool's Gold, California, the charming small-town setting for a new holiday novella from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery

Famous former NFL stars don't date single working moms like Bailey Voss. She'll allow herself to daydream about Kenny Scott's muscles and killer smile, but wanting more would lead to post-holiday regret. Then Kenny volunteers to run a toy drive with Bailey, and she learns that he's not just hot
he's also generous, funny, nice. The whole packagetantalizingly out of reach.

The ache of past loss reminds Kenny why he needs to avoid getting too close to anyone. Especially to a gorgeous redhead and her adorable little girl. Mess it up, and he'd lose them both. Yet Kenny can only resist Bailey for so long. And as festive spirit spreads throughout the town, he's all wrapped up in Bailey's sweet, sexy kisses and determined to make this the first of many Christmases together

 Book #15.5 - and finally Kenny's & Bailey's story - and we can't forget little Chloe ☺
I've been waiting for them ever since the football boys moved into town ☺

Kenny - one of the partners in the town's PR agency.
He's been hurt very badly a few years ago when the mother of his three year old son James left him and told him he wasn't the baby's Dad.
He never wanted to have a relationship with a single mom again. He doesn't ever want to get hurt like that again.
Enter:  widowed mom Bailey. She's working for the Mayor and that's how Kenny and Bailey end up working together on a charity toy run, together with the town's girl scouts.

She's had a crush on Kenny ever since he moved into town.
And he's so adorably sweet to her daughter too.
How can she not fall in love with him.
But he's made it clear that he won't ever date a single mom!

What will happen to Kenny & Bailey & Chloe?
Will there be a Christmas miracle?
Will the three of them become the family they all so badly want to be?

Nope - I'm not telling you ☺

Ugh - I just LOVE Fool's Gold and it's people - I would be happy to have a new Fool's Gold book every month for the rest of my life! ☺

I was sooo looking forward to finally find out if - no - HOW - Kenny and Bailey will end up together ☺

This was a total double win-win for me. I love Fool's Gold and I simply ADORE everything Christmas.
And the christmas - holiday - mood in this novella was just sooo perfect.
I almost smelled & tasted the turkey and the cookies and the hot cocoa ☺

It takes Kenny quite a long time to get over his fears, but it's really adorable to see how the big bad beautiful football guy allows himself to not only dream about the future he always wanted...but to finally do something about it.

If only Bailey had anything to say about it, they both would've been together from the first page of the book - but we all know it takes guys a bit longer to get it ☺

Most fairy tales end with a happily ever after.

This is not a fairy tale. He is not her Prince Charming about to whisk her away into the sunset. This is a story about betrayal, lust, desire and, ultimately, revenge...

And revenge can only lead to one thing.


He was my stranger, my visitor, my shadow in the corner of my room. He stalked me, watched me, knew everything about me. But all I could do was sit and wait. I waited for him to visit me night after night. He was becoming my addiction, my craving, my obsession. He knew every inch of me, but I knew nothing about him.

His calls himself Lotus and, as crazy as it sounds, I think I
m falling in love.


I wanted to take her, possess her, dominate her, and ruin her. I wanted to ravish her, please her, and consume her until I couldn
t take much more of her.

She will want me to kiss her. She will want me to hold her all night so that she feels a connection with me. I would make it so that she would seek me out in the dark. The one that satisfies her ultimate fantasy. A stranger who sneaks into her room. Someone who gives her the ultimate pleasure, but also seeks to give her ultimate pain. Pain she has never had to endure. Pain that will eat away at her until there is nothing left.

She was my nemesis, I was her lotus. And payback was a bitch.

Tyler is a 29-year-old Journalist living in London.
She hasn't had a boyfriend in ages....but what she has....
is a Stalker. Kind of.
She notices things being replaced in her apartment when she comes home at night...
She doesn't know why exactly, but she's not worried - rather excited by this whole 'game'.
She just hopes that Her Stalker won't end up axe-murdering her ☺

We also go back in time to when Tyler was a little girl. How she was best friends with Ian and Dean...and how she's been in love with Dean since she was six years old.
But then, when she was sixteen he just left - he told her that he would be back and that she should wait for him...but she never heard from him again.

But we hear about Dean's story.

Dean is back, but Dean is not really Dean at all - at least not to Tyler. She doesn't recognise him.

Dean.... the poor guy thinks he has been brutally betrayed 13 years ago, and now he's back to get his sweet Revenge by destroying the one woman who he thought would be his future.





NOPE - I'm not telling you . . . ________________________________________________________




This was such a gripping story!!!

First you might think: how can she let this guy do this to her for such a long time?
But we really want him to do it to her and we want them to get their Happy Ever After.
But with all those problems between them - the lies and betrayals or non-betrayals - this very long time since they saw each other years ago, and everything that happened in their lives in those 13 years.... is there really hope for a HEA??

The reader sure hopes it all through the book.
I'm not telling you how it ends of course ☺

This book had everything I need in my Stalker-Romances ☺


Were there a few things I didn't like?
Hm - not really - maybe only that it reminded me of Bella Aurora's Raw with the Stalking and Dean's business et cetera ☺

I couldn't put it down - you just have to know how it ends!!!

If you like really really hot Romances with a #SexyStalkerGuy - GO AND BUY THE BOOK!!!!




Loving life, writing, and fictional book boyfriends!! ;)

Whatever You Do

whatever you do_high

How do you trust someone who is everything you’re trying to avoid?
Harper Lindell is having a bad day. You know, if a bad day consists of getting fired from your cushy job and then catching your boyfriend red handed playing hide the salami.

Sick of meeting the same guys over and over, Harper decides to try her luck at Internet dating. How bad could it be? Right?

Tate Washington wasn’t looking to meet anyone. Still dealing with the consequences of his one serious relationship, all he’s interested in is revamping his family’s behind-the-times café.

He didn’t plan on seeing the beautiful receptionist from Argo again, walking into his life to use his café as a dating hub, and using him as a BFF.

Can Harper really trust Tate, who is everything she thinks she needs to steer clear of?

Can Tate wait while Harper works through her insecurities and fears?

“Andrew?” I question as I reach the table.

“Yes. Harper, hello.” He shakes my hand and the first thing I notice are his warm eyes. They are gentle and sincere and I feel instantly comfortable with him. “Take a seat, please.”

He gestures to my seat before pulling it out for me to sit in. I smile up at him in thanks for the chivalrous action as I slide into the chair.

During our emails back and forth this week, Andrew and I had figured out that we are from similar small towns not far from each other. We laugh about all the misguided town folk and the classic ‘types’ every town has. The town clown who has thought of every invention under the sun, the do-gooder mayor, the old lady gossip group, and the crazy minister and his family. Of course I didn’t laugh at that last one, as true as it is, being the daughter of a minister and all.

“So what do your parents do?” Andrew asks.

“Umm.” I stall looking for a distraction, not wanting to make to him feel bad.

“What can I get you guys?” Tate offers and I’m grateful for the interruption.

“Oh gosh I haven’t even looked yet,” Andrew says as he picks up the menu from the table.

“Just the usual for me please.” As my eyes reach Tate’s his are wide with horror. I sit upright at the urgency in his expression wondering what the hell is going on.

He nods his head in Andrew’s direction and I glance over. Andrew is studying the menu oblivious to mine and Tate’s silent conversation.

I look back at Tate giving him a ‘what’ look as he scratches his head then stiffly nods back in Andrew’s direction.

I sigh frustrated and look back at Andrew. He looks up from his menu and smiles at me before turning to Tate and placing his order.

I still don’t see a problem and look back to Tate with a ‘just fucking tell me’ look.

He begins running his hand through his hair as he harshly nods in Andrew’s direction again. I don’t even bother looking at Andrew again, knowing I’m not going to see anything different than before.

With wide eyes and a clenched jaw, I get out through gritted teeth, “I think that’s all.”

Tate sighs heavily, clearly frustrated and storms away from the table.

I shake my head and when I turn back to Andrew he is staring at me in confusion. “Sorry,” I giggle embarrassed he witnessed that final interaction between Tate and me.

“No worries.” He is sweet but his voice is wary. Tate and I probably looked like two mute idiots. How humiliating.

Andrew seamlessly continues our conversation. I use this opportunity to study him and search for the meaning of Tate’s irrational display.

I didn’t really focus on Andrew’s features before. He’s not ugly, but he’s definitely not in the same calibre as Tate or Glenn.

Now that I’m looking closer at him, there is something off about his looks. I can’t put my finger on it but something doesn’t fit. It has to be something small like his eyes aren’t in line or his facial features are too far apart, maybe bad teeth or ears that are too big or small, but I can’t see any of that. All his features seem symmetrical and in proper proportion to his face, but something is definitely not right.

Out of the corner of my eye I see Tate flailing his arms about. I shoot a glance his way trying not to be noticeable only to see he is frantically running his hand through his hair before tugging on the ends. No, tugging is too tame, he is pulling hard on his hair.

I glance around the café and no one has seemed to notice Tate’s complete and mental breakdown. He’s lost it. Maybe it’s all the coffee fumes, they are really strong in here.

When I look back towards Tate he is on his way over to the table carrying our hot drinks. I roll my eyes at his determined stare and wonder what antics he has planned for us this time.

Tate doesn’t falter as he strides towards the table and proceeds to drop a hot cup of coffee all over the table and into Andrew’s lap. I gasp in shock at what is unfolding in front of me. Andrew jumps from his seat, squealing like a small girl. I watch horrified as his hair falls off his head and lands on the table in front of me.

My mouth drops open as I just stare at Andrew’s toupee lying in spilt coffee. Glancing up at Andrew I see the heat rising on his face and shiny bald head. I smile awkwardly at him as I pick up his hairpiece and hold it out to him as if it’s a pair of dirty underwear and I can’t stand to touch it.

He quickly swipes it from my hand and places it on his head, but not before I notice his whole head, bright red in mortification. It’s like a beacon calling in planes for landing. Andrew stares at me, his hairpiece on backwards and coffee leaking from it, dripping all down his face.

“I’m so sorry Andrew,” I whisper, as I place both my hands over my mouth. Shit, I can feel the laughter rising.

“No, I’m sorry Harper.” My gut churns on his behalf at the humiliation he must be feeling. The silence of the café surrounds us, lucky it’s not overly busy at this time of night. Andrew glares at Tate who smiles and raises his hands innocently, before Andrew storms out of the café not breathing another word, just leaving a trail of coffee in his wake.

“You’re welcome,” Tate says casually as he pulls a clean chair up to the table, before relaxing back into it and crossing his ankles in front of him.
