Series are for Me!
Are you a series reader? I totally am. I can’t bring myself to read singles titles and seem to be drawn to series? Why you ask? Well, first it’s because of my book budget. You know, that elusive amount of $$$ you can spend on books a month that seems to get smaller each month? LOL
I want to invest my reading time and $$$ in a world for more than one book. I can’t help it. I don’t want to say goodbye to the characters when I turn the page, but I also don’t want to wait until book 2 or 3 for an HEA. See? I’m neurotic apparently. I like my H/h to have an HEA at the end of their book but I don’t want to say goodbye. I want them in the background for the rest of the series so I can see what they’re up to. I want to know that the background characters from book 1 are going to get their HEA as well.
That’s not picky…right?
I love writing series for those same reasons. I love dropping hints about later characters and frankly this is where my new characters reveal themselves to me. I love going back to older characters and see where they’re at.
I don’t knowing that’s the end. I can get over it if there are 3 or more books in a series. But after one book? I can’t let go. I’m annoying like that.
In my Holiday, Montana series you get to know the Cooper brothers and the whole town. Each of my five, sexy, Cooper brothers get their own story in this series so I get to drop hints as to what their story may be like. Yes, you get to know Matt and Jordan and see their love story, but you also get to meet the men and some of the gals from the future of the series. With each series I get to start new and find a new world. That’s why I’m a series girl. Because I just can’t let go.

Holiday, Montana Book 1
Jordan Cross has returned to Holiday, Montana after eleven long years to clear out her late aunt’s house, put it on the market, and figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life. Soon, she finds herself facing the town that turned its back on her because she was different. Because being labeled a witch in a small town didn’t earn her many friends…especially when it wasn’t a lie.
Matt Cooper has lived in Holiday his whole life. He’s perfectly content being a bachelor alongside his four single brothers in a very small town. After all, the only woman he’d ever loved ran out on him without a goodbye. But now Jordan’s back and just as bewitching as ever. Can they rekindle their romance with a town set against them?
Warning: Contains an intelligent, sexy witch with an attitude and drop-dead gorgeous man who likes to work with his hands, holds a secret that might scare someone, and really, really, likes table tops for certain activities. Enough said.

Matt Cooper walked into the hardware store in a daze, his body going through the motions while his mind tumbled in an array of memories, anger, and longing.
Jordan Cross, his high school love and childhood best friend…back. She’d left without a word, leaving a mess of dashed possibilities and his broken heart in her wake.
But, Jesus, she looked even better than before.
Her green eyes seemed darker, more haunted or sorrowful, than before, like she’d fought more than she’d bargained for and was still losing. Her hair was longer now, very glossy sable locks falling to the middle of her back in careless waves. He’d had loved to run his fingers through it when they sat at the lakeside watching the sun set.
Yes, they’d been that clichéd in high school, but he’d loved her.
Past tense. Because he didn’t love her anymore. She’d left him. Left him with his problems, his everything and yet nothing.
Matt shook his head and went behind the counter, trying to ignore the dull pain in his temples. Darn witch, she shouldn’t be here. He didn’t want to think about her. Didn’t want to deal with it all over when she left again.
