Her Hawaiian Homecoming

Her Hawaiian Homecoming by Cara Lockwood

 An Unexpected Attraction… 


For Allie Osaka, dealing with her tragic past means running from it. Inheriting her family's Kona coffee plantation on the Big Island of Hawaii is the last thing she expects when all she wants to do is keep running. 


Selling the inheritance and moving on sounds good, but her grandmother's will comes with a mighty catch—namely irresistible foreman Dallas McCormick, who owns half the plantation. 

Flaring tempers and hotter-than-lava attraction can only lead to trouble. 

The Big Break

The Big Break by Cara Lockwood

 Sometimes you just have to dive in… 


Since the tsunami nearly ended his career a year ago, extreme surfer Kai Brady has kept a dark secret: he's terrified to get back on his board. With everything he's worked for on the line, Kai needs a miracle…and a kick-ass trainer. That "miracle" is single mom Jun Lee. 


Jun Lee can see that the heartbreakingly gorgeous surfer who'd selflessly rescued her son when disaster struck now needs to be saved himself. But the attraction between them proves to be a force stronger than the ocean, and just as dangerous. 

Shelter in the Tropics

Shelter in the Tropics by Cara Lockwood

 She's got nowhere left to run 

After a year of searching, ex-marine turned private eye Tack Reeves has finally located Cate Allen. She's traded in her high heels for flip-flops but Tack would recognize the stunning beauty anywhere. He just needs proof. Posing as a tourist at her Caribbean resort is the perfect cover. 


Except that the closer Tack gets to Cate, the less his case makes sense…and their intense attraction is only fueling the confusion. When he learns that the mom and her four-year-old son are hiding from her abusive ex, he vows to protect them...

Island of Second Chances

Island of Second Chances by Cara Lockwood

 Trapped between loss and love...

Laura Kelly wanted to leave everything back in San Francisco. Her broken heart. The loss of her unborn child. Instead, her grief followed her here...to an island paradise in the Caribbean. 


Along with a neighbour who, despite his handsomeness, insists on being a complete pain in her city-girl backside.


That is, until Laura learns that Mark Tanner’s grumpy demeanor is hiding a terrible grief of his own. Instead of declaring war, Laura and Mark work together to restore an old boat, igniting an unlikely friendship—and an attraction neither of them expected. 

Practicing Parenthood

Practicing Parenthood by Cara Lockwood

 When opposing counsels attract!

Assistant DA Collin Baptista has a rule: never sleep with the enemy. He broke it once—with defense attorney Madison Reddy. Now Madison’s pregnant and Collin heads to her North Captiva retreat with a ring, prepared to do the right thing. What he’s not prepared for is her flat-out rejection.


Madison may not think he’s ready to be a father, but Collin’s sure he can convince her otherwise. And when the couple find a lost goldendoodle puppy, they get plenty of opportunity to practice being a family. Maybe a secluded Florida island and a stray puppy can teach these two rivals to be a couple—and parents!
