Have my baby.

That was what my single dad best friend Seth said to me while I was waitressing at the diner. 
His little girl wants a sibling. But Seth is a workaholic millionaire and doesn't have time to meet someone.
Someone who won't screw him over, like his kid's mother. 
Only problem is this someone has secretly been in love with him since high school. I've been hiding it forever, not wanting to risk our friendship.
Sleeping with him is my biggest fantasy. And I've fantasized plenty, being a virgin. Another thing he doesn't know.

Now I have to make the biggest decision of my life.

Is having a no strings attached affair just to make a baby better than never having him at all?

Author’s note: this case of insta-love and insta-naked-time has been brewing for over a decade. Babymaking has never been so hot…or so funny…or so complicated.

Author’s Note part deux: Have My Baby is a standalone rom com with a romantic HEA ending and no cliffhanger.
He was only supposed to deliver a pizza. And yes, I ordered sausage, but I never expected such a personal…touch.
I’m a good girl. I teach little kids, brake for squirrels, and always donate to cookie drives though I so don't need the extra ten pounds.
My sympathetic nature led to me sleeping with my ex after his granny’s funeral. The next day, he dumped me—again—via text, and I decided I needed a fresh start.
Luckily, I found a new apartment near my new school. Yay me. I also found myself unexpectedly naked with Dare, the smoking hot, single dad mechanic who works next door.
Dare did more than clean my spark plugs that night, let me tell you.
Then my worlds collide when Dare shows up at his son’s parent-teacher conference.

Next thing I know, surprise! Pregnant.

Dare knows I’m worried about my job at the Catholic school. And about how I’m going to handle the baby that might be his.
Please, God, let it be his.
I just never expected Dare to propose marriage. And he wants me to become his wife in all ways.
Especially the Biblical ones. 
Author’s note: Who’s The Daddy is a romantic comedy with a HEA ending and no cliffhanger.
You’re going to be a daddy.
Those were the last words I ever expected to hear.
As one of the fabled Hamilton twins, I enjoy my life just as it is. Why wouldn’t I? Check out my stats.
Co-owner of Hamilton Realty, a multimillion dollar business.
Doting uncle to my niece, Laurie, and my soon-to-be nephew.
All-around sexy, single guy who doesn’t do strings—ever.
Then I went to Vegas with my sister-in-law’s best friend, Sage.
Choices were made. Alcoholic beverages were consumed. Virginities were taken.
Hers, not mine.
Then Sage announced I’d knocked her up. And oh yeah, she doesn’t expect me to take an active role, because she knows I can’t handle anything except my d*ck.
Say what?
She’s so wrong, and I’m going to prove it to her. I’m going to claim my baby—and Sage. 
Author’s note: This book is about the process of becoming a DILF. Oliver doesn’t start out as a single father, but by the end of the book? Hoo boy.

Author’s Note part deux: Claim My Baby is a standalone rom com with a romantic HEA ending and no cliffhanger.
We had the hottest hookup ever. And now, she’s having my baby.

I’m a carefree single guy.

A successful race car driver who enjoys hitting the track—hard.

I don’t do commitments.

Hell, I rarely even do repeats.

Until I spent the night with a gorgeous, funny woman who rocked my world.

No names. No identifying details. Just lots and lots of pleasure.

Until we meet up again at my older brother’s wedding. And guess what, she’s my brand new sister-in-law, Rylee Ford.

And apparently, now she hates me.

Oh, and she’s also pregnant. Surprise, I’m the daddy.

I’m so screwed.

Author’s note: Gage doesn’t start out as a single father... but it sure doesn’t take long for implantation to occur. Pit Stop: Baby is a standalone romantic comedy with a HEA ending and no cliffhanger.
My life changed when I posted an ad on Crescent Cove’s Facebook Wanted page.

I wasn’t looking for a used car, but what I was looking for counted as a need too, right?

Single, personable woman seeking a man for the purposes of procreation. I wouldn’t mind if he looked like Chris Pratt, but that’s not required. No further interaction with the child is required, unless desired by father-to-be. Child will be created the old-fashioned way, assuming both parties agree. Contact V at goodtothelastdrop.

I wasn’t expecting much, to tell the truth.

For a week, I got no bites.

No licks—or clicks.


Then I got a reply.

We started to email. Text. Maybe almost…sext.

He was sweet. Funny. Suddenly, the idea of doing the naked make-a-baby rumba with him seemed like more fun than function.

Then I found out who he was.

He found out who I was.

And tomorrow, I’m going to see him at work.

Author’s note: The hero doesn't start out as a single father, but he's on board with adding his cream to her coffee. Baby Daddy Wanted is a standalone romantic comedy with a HEA ending and no cliffhanger.
I’m having a millionaire’s baby...

New Year’s Eve, a night of new beginnings.

Asher and I talked and sipped champagne. Eventually, we went up to my room at the bed and breakfast and...

Let’s just say when I left that room, I was no longer a virgin.

And that was it. 

No last names, no numbers, no pressure. Something we both desperately needed.

Just a night of fun, with so much pleasure.

Until I was approached for a nanny position that I wasn’t sure I was equipped for. 

And the man behind the curtain raising his best friend’s little girl was…


A single dad unprepared for his unexpected responsibility.

A wealthy, powerful, conflicted CEO of a newspaper empire on the verge of extinction.

And the father of the baby I just realized I was carrying...

Author’s note: CEO DADDY is a standalone single father and virgin nanny forced proximity romance novel set in our small town Crescent Cove. It has a happily-ever-after ending.
Snowed in rocker makes unplanned baby with saucy waitress. News at 11.

I could see the tabloids now.

Yeah, I play guitar and sing occasionally. But my main role is as a producer for other musicians.

That's why I came to Crescent Cove—to help rockstar Kellan McGuire with his first solo project.

Not to get stuck in a surprise snowstorm with a smart, funny lass with big brown eyes and a very flexible...body.

The next night, I was on a flight back to LA.

I returned to town months later. To help Kellan. Right.

And to lose myself in Ivy again and again, even when the cops tried to thwart us. (They only temporarily succeeded.)

The next time I come back, ready to fight for my woman, Ivy has a swollen belly.

I’ve spent my life running, and second chances come at a price. But I won’t give up until I’ve made her mine. Forever.

Her and our baby.

Author's Note: Surprise! Producer Rory Ferguson is the first character to cross over from our Oblivion World... but he isn't the last! He doesn't start out as a daddy, but his unexpected baby with Ivy will be his biggest production yet.

Author's note part deux: Rockstar Baby is a romantic comedy with a HEA and no cliffhanger.
One hot night. Three naughty best friends. What can possibly go wrong?

When an upcoming birthday makes Caitlyn Sachs decide to seek a gift that doesn't come in a box—a no-strings hookup to finally lose her pesky virginity—there's just one problem.

She doesn’t want only one guy. She wants two.

The men she can't pick between just happen to be her best friends and business partners, Matthew Collins and Tristan Baldwin. And both men want each other too, much to her surprise.

Then Matt offers a shocking suggestion.

She should lose her virginity not once, but twice. To them.

After being kidnapped and spirited away to a remote cabin in the mountains, Cait is ready to unwrap her Christmas present—her two sinful men—over and over again.

First time, first threesome, first time she didn't want a night to ever end.

When the morning comes, it's all supposed to be over. But sometimes holiday hotness can lead to forever...

Keep the Christmas fire burning with a FREE copy of JINGLE BALL, a MMF holiday romance novella, included at the end of Unwrapped!

Unwrapped was previously published by Cari Quinn in 2011. This book has been altered and re-edited.
Never trust a cold condom.

Wait, let me back up. I'm Kellan McGuire, and I'm a rockstar in hiding, at least for the weekend. Enter Maggie Kelly, the famed Kelly virgin - AKA my small hometown's favorite good girl.

Did I mention she's really good? And I'm so...not.

Except Maggie isn't a virgin any longer. She actually just went through a rough breakup due to her ex's penchant for strippers. 

And I don't want to be a rockstar this weekend. Not with her.

I just want to be Kellan, the wolf to her Little Red Riding Hood. The guy who shows her all the dark, dirty things she never dared to dream.

In return, she gave me something I never dared to dream about either - a baby.

A family.

Our family, if I can convince her I'm worth the risk.

Author's note: this book may be called Rockstar Daddy, but the emphasis is on lots of babymaking practice, laughter, a few tears, and a serious case of insta-love.
I'm the one who isn't pregnant. Yet…

Expanding my successful café was a no-brainer.

Sleeping with the contractor?

Well, mix some hormones, excellent coffee, and the romantic atmosphere of the movie Halloween, and naked stuff happens.

Yeah, Gideon is smokin' hot, as shown by the photos from that pesky camera crew that's suddenly following us around.

Say what?

Because surprise—he's a single father, and now he's the most eligible one in Crescent Cove.

Every horny woman in our small town wants a go at his tool…belt.

And then we're caught on camera—I still had my pants on, thank you—and all Hades breaks loose.

Now the little secret he kept from me isn't nearly as important as Gideon keeping custody of his daughter.

When that full moon rises on Halloween, I might finally be dropping my mask. And risking it all for love…and really good hammering.

Author's note: This romantic comedy is Macy and Gideon's story—finally!—and has a happily-ever-after ending.
