After making a bad decision when she was very young, Kia Clementine finds herself in hell. Then, suddenly, within the time it takes for a shotgun to blast, her hell changes. Completely.
Out of the blue she sees Sampson Cooper, her celebrity crush. A man the whole world knows is decent. A man the world knows is loyal. A man the world knows is good. All of these very unlike her now dead husband.
He’s sitting at a table right next to hers. And she catches his eye.
Terrified of the interest Sam shows in her, Kia still finds the courage to go out with him. Not long after, she shares her dark secrets and Sam shares that he’ll stop at nothing to gain her trust.
As Sam leads Kia to heaven, Kia realizes that Sam is living his own hell. But although he gives her beauty and she gives him everything, he withholds his trust.
Even with all the beauty Sam shows her, Kia wants it all. But Sam forces Kia to make a heartbreaking decision and only she can decide: It’s all or nothing.

Is There More Heaven in Store in North Carolina?
Happily ever after is my middle name.
Now don’t read on if you don’t want spoilers of Heaven and Hell…
But if you’ve read Kia and Sam’s story, you’ll know we left them with rough, gruff, fun-loving George “Hap” Cunningham and beautiful, broken but piecing-herself-together Luciana Gordon having found each other.
Regardless of his feelings for Luci, honor and respect to his lost colleague means Hap never intended to let anything happen between him and his dead friend’s wife. But Hap lost control, not only of his passion, but of his heart. And Luci knows what love feels like and learned the hard way to hold it precious. She also learned never to waste time.
As Hap struggles with his deep loyalty to a dead man, will Luci wait? Or will she keep piecing herself together while trying to find her own version of Heaven?
Guess what? Hap and Luci’s story has been written! Their novella, The Stars Aligned, appears in my very first Loose Ends anthology! See more and hit order links below!
Yep. I’m tying up…Loose Ends.
I’m trying a new thing. And hoping you dig it (so I can do it often). Revisiting some of my characters, and telling stories of others who were left hanging.
In this first compilation, you’ll find three short stories and two novellas taking you back into my various universes.
No Clue, a short story – Visit with Joe and Vi from At Peace of The ’Burg series and learn how Joe breaks up a fight between his sons, what Ryker’s up to and why, exactly, his wife Violet has no clue.
The Stars Aligned, a novella – The long-awaited love story of Hap and Luci. Introduced in Heaven and Hell, readers learned, after a heartbreaking journey through grief, Luci was ready to take another chance at love. But Hap was adhering to “the code” between brothers, unwilling to betray his dead friend Travis by falling for Travis’s widow. Further, Hap can’t quite believe a beauty like Luci could fall for a normal guy like Hap. But for Luci and Hap the heart can’t be denied. Especially when the stars align.
The Favor, a short story – Deacon and Cassidy from Deacon of the Unfinished Heroes series go back to their favorite cabin at Glacier Lily, and there, Cassie asks her husband a favor. He’ll give her anything she wants. Including this.
More Than Everything, a novella – Readers left Diesel, Maddox and Molly at a crossroads at the end of The Greatest Risk of the Honey series. Maddox and Molly were all in with their commitment to their unconventional love triangle. But Diesel was letting the pressures and prejudice of family and society sink under his skin, making him hold himself distant from the man he loved. Can Maddox and Molly lead Diesel fully into their lives and give him more than everything?
Rock Chick Renewal, a short story – Tod has been planning Rock Chick weddings for years. He’s got a new one on his hands. And it’s not what he expected.
