Me and the Cute Catastrophe

Claire Harding

I live in Idaho. (Yes, potatoes. *eye roll* Can we talk about something else?) And I love it here. Small town values galore and it’s right where I want to raise my girls after my jerk ex traded me in for a “younger, newer model” (his words, not mine).

My mom’s the volunteer fire chief in our town and I’m pretty happy hanging out with the auxiliary at the fire hall and doing her grunt work – NOT fighting fires, because, please, I read, love science and my idea of a lot of exercise is having to walk up the stairs twice in the morning before I send my girls off to school and leave for my job as a home nurse.

I guess it’s kind of weird that I also coach basketball. Long story.

I was pretty happy with my life until the hot shot, all-state baller from my teen years moved back in next door. (I babysat him, yes, but I never changed his diapers. Just wanted to be clear about that.)

Guess who’s now the assistant b-ball coach?

Logic would say me – especially since I coached my entire first year holding the play book upside down (it turned out to be an old football playbook from the ‘80s, so it’s not like it mattered which way I held it) but the accurate answer is Trey Haywood, my all-star neighbor, and I’m honestly not sure which of us is more upset about it.

Anyway, the team was trying to set us up (girls, they’re such romantics) and I don’t think they would have succeeded, but in celebration of breaking our 37 game losing streak, they locked Trey and me in the septic system control room.

That changed everything. Not in a good way.

Trey

Yeah. What she said.

And…when I first saw her again, I thought she was a catastrophe.

New thought post septic control: she’s a cute catastrophe. (And, holy man, can she kiss.)

They kiss.

Big mistake.

Fall in Love with the Baxter Boys

SNUGGLE up with SWEET romance that will WARM your heart and CURL your toes.

The Baxter Boy’s Sacrifice

One night changed everything…

Cassidy Kimbell killed a man when she was only nineteen.

Torque Baxter took the blame, serving ten years for her crime.

He told her to flee the scene of the accident. He told her to run. He told her to keep her mouth shut, so that’s what she’d done. She’d let a boy with a crush become an innocent man behind bars.

Today, that man is being released.

Cassidy expects Torque to hate her. She knows nothing she has done to atone all these years can compare to what he’s lost. But she hopes becoming his sponsor on the outside, especially since she’s a lawyer now, might help.

Little does she know, Torque doesn’t want her to owe him.

He wants her to love him.

But to do that Cassidy would have to give up the life she’s built for the last ten years. She’d have to sacrifice it all, just like he did.

The Small Town Boys Series

Blade Truax did some street racing when he was younger. Illegal, sure.

But that’s not what sent him to prison.

It was the lying, conniving Watkins girl and her father, Judge Watkins.

He did his time, and he’s out. But he has to register. Despite the fact that he was innocent to begin with.

He’ll never drive down that road again.

His fines are paid, his time is served. All he wants now is to build his business legitimately. No more stripping exhausts and smoking the turbos.

But in order to get soccer moms and little old ladies to bring their cars to his shop, he needs to look legit.

Liberty Watkins suspects her sister lied. But she could never prove it. And Blade looked guilty.

Still, Liberty couldn’t stop believing in him.

So, when she gets the opportunity to supplement her church secretary job by becoming his parts person and bookkeeper, she’s tempted.

When he suggests a dating relationship just for the summer, she’s not as sure.

She’s not interested in being his temp.

Can she convince the bad boy to make her his forever girl?
