Same Great Romance, Shiny New Covers! Sex. Lies. Wedding Cake?

Sex, Lies & Wedding Cake CollectionA wedding party gets shipwrecked on a deserted island where there’s really only one thing to do for entertainment… A maid-of-honor who poses as a stripper to spy on the groom’s bachelor party… A newly-wed bride who finds her groom in a compromising position…

See a common theme here? You do? Good for you, because it took me a few years but it finally hit me that even though these are all completely standalone stories they all contain the same elements. Sex. Lies. Weddings.  And so the SEX, LIES & WEDDING CAKE COLLECTION was born!

Still the same great romantic comedy contemporary romance stories. Still all completely standalone unconnected reads. But now all branded with new covers under the Sex, Lies & Wedding Cake collection umbrella, because a reader who enjoyed one story might want to check out the others with similar elements.

Gillian’s Island. Private Lies. New Orleans. Now part of the Sex, Lies & Wedding Cake Collection. Enjoy!

Night with a SEAL (Hot SEALs Book 1)


Ten years of dedication to the Navy taught SEAL Jon Rudnick one thing—he’s not afraid to risk life and limb for his country. But when navigating military red tape begins to present more challenges than the enemy it makes Jon question his future. So does Alison Cressly, the woman who doesn’t do one-night stands or SEALs but who broke both rules with Jon the eve of his deployment to Afghanistan. He can’t get her out of his head—not while away and not now that he’s back.

When Ali’s life is threatened and military rules won’t allow him to intervene, Jon decides it’s time to take back control. The question is what would a SEAL do as a civilian? Jon’s got skills, drive and an idea, as well as a few teammates willing to cover his six. And he’s got the hope of more with Ali.

A team of sexy SEALs, a terrorist threat, and an attraction that can’t be denied . . . it all comes together in this launch of the new Hot SEALs romantic suspense series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling contemporary romance author Cat Johnson.

Meet Bull -my Red Hot & Blue series’ next hunky military hero!



When the going gets tough, the tough go out with a bang…

Spec Op “Bull” Ford is as big as his nickname. His team, the civilians he protects, whether they know it or not, all depend on him. But beneath his stony exterior beats the heart of a caring man—unless he’s crossed.

Between her job as professional harpist and fending off an ex-boyfriend who won’t take the hint, Marly feels like a circus juggler. She doesn’t need some oversized, overzealous security guard accusing her of being a terrorist—as if a five-foot-nothing woman in a ball gown could threaten anyone.

Though when the real terrorists strike, she’s more than grateful to have Bull at her side…or on top, which certainly makes what could be her last breaths memorable.

But after Bull takes the brunt of the explosion, Marly is left with feelings for a man who doesn’t remember who she is. And by the time the red-hot memories come flooding back, the trail to her heart may have gone cold.

Warning: Contains explosive sexual encounters—literally!

For those who are familiar with my Oklahoma Nights series and have read Book 1, ONE NIGHT WITH A COWBOY, you’ll be happy to know my story in this anthology, FISH OUT OF WATER, features a return of Tuck and Logan, but the main hero is Becca’s boss, OSU English department head Mark Ross. This nerdy professor is thrown totally out of his element when he agrees to go on an overnight fishing trip with his two friends from the military sciences department, but the appearance of cowgirl Carla, Tuck’s assistant coach on the OSU rodeo team, makes Mark forget all about his lack of fishing experience.

FYI- for you cover model enthusiasts, the model for He’s the One is the sweet and hot, and very tall, Len Gunn. I had the pleasure of doing a signing with him for Kensington at the recent Romantic Times Booklovers Convention. He inspired this month’s wallpaper tagline “Suit Optional” because seriously, with a body like that skinny dipping is definitely the way to go. 😉

Finally, for those free spirits among us who don’t want to know what the date is, I’ve posted a page on the site for non-calendar desktop wallpaper. I’ll be adding more to it. Check it out under the FUN STUFF tab here on the site or go directly to the page by clicking
