a young age left her wary of letting anyone in. Now that 
she’s settled in Still Harbor, Alex struggles between keeping
 her distance and the magnetic pull of the handsome stranger
 who claims he’s the biological father of her adopted daughter.

Hayden Brooks never wanted to be a father. Long hours
 spent building his family’s real estate empire suits him 
just fine. But when he discovers an ex put the baby he
 unknowingly fathered up for adoption, his world crumbles.
 He tracks the child to Still Harbor with the intention of 
bringing her home-and comes face to face with his 
daughter’s stunning adoptive mother.

The paternity test is in. And Hayden’s about to make the 
most shocking decision of his life, just in time for Christmas…

Coming soon


Hayden Brooks gazed blankly at the woman who was apparently supposed to mean something to him.

He stared and stared, trying to figure out why she was supposed to be significant to him. There was a vague familiarity about her, sort of like remembering a fading dream hours after waking. She was tall, sleek, with jet-black hair that hung straight down past her shoulders. She was attractive in an unapproachable sort of way. Her eyes were rimmed with too much black makeup and her lips were bright red, a contrast to her flawless porcelain skin. Why didn’t he remember her name? And why was she standing on his doorstep?

“You don’t know who I am, do you? You are Hayden Brooks, right?”

He gave a short nod and leaned against the doorjamb trying to look casual even though every single muscle in his body was now tightly wound. He wanted to appear casual. He wanted her to feel at ease and let her guard down so he could figure out what was going on.

“We hooked up about seven years ago.”

“Seven years ago?” He could barely remember the names of the women he’d dated last year. Not that there had been that many. They just hadn’t been that memorable.

She nodded, her bright red lips thinning. She obviously didn’t like being forgettable. “Yes, it was at The Oceanside Bar. You were there with a bunch of guys and I was there with my girlfriends… We hooked up and spent a great night together at the Oceanside Hotel.”

He ran his hand over his jaw, his eyes not leaving hers. He remembered, vaguely. It had been a bad night for him, a bad week. She had been available and pursued him.

“So what are you doing here now?”

She pulled a newspaper out of her large black purse and handed it to him. He stared at the picture of himself. He’d been on the cover of the city’s newspaper last week. He had just closed the biggest real estate deal in the city’s history. The article was flattering. It spotlighted the father-son success team that made up Brooks Building Group. “I only knew your first name that night… We didn’t really exchange information after. I had no way of contacting you again. Then last week I was drinking my morning coffee and saw your face on the cover of the newspaper. It’s not really a face a girl forgets.”

He didn’t say anything.

“I tried looking everywhere for you seven years ago. I went back to the Oceanside, but you were never there. I asked at the hotel, they didn’t know.”

“Why were you looking for me?”

“Because I was pregnant.”

Hell no. Hayden looked past her, into the distance, listening as the rain pounded the ground, trying to focus on a sight that would calm him down. It was a typical Vancouver fall morning—typical except for the fact that there was a woman claiming to have been pregnant by him. Seven years ago. He looked at her again, searching her blue eyes for something. It was impossible, really. He was the most cautious man on the planet. There was no way he’d ever risk getting someone pregnant. He had made mistakes as a teen. He’d learned to look at himself in the mirror again, but it had taken a long time, and he’d learned responsibility the hard way. He was also a man that didn’t make the same mistake twice.

“No, there’s no way I got you pregnant.”

She gave a small smirk, unbuttoned her trench coat, revealing a lithe figure in a skin-tight black dress. “Now, I know you must be thinking that there’s no way this body could have ever had a baby, but it’s true.”

“That wasn’t what I was thinking at all. Here’s what I’m thinking.” He pushed himself off the doorjamb and stood straight up. No one tried to screw with him, and not about something like this. This was life altering. This would mess with his carefully controlled life. It would bring out demons he’d long since buried. “I’m thinking you saw that article, remembered our night together, and thought you could cash in.”

She blinked furiously, but not before he saw her eyes fill with tears. He wasn’t backing down. “I would never do that. I’m doing my civic duty and letting you know that you’re a father.”

“Well, then where’s my kid?”

She lifted her chin. “I don’t know.”

Alarm bells were going off, and a slow sweat was now trucking down his spine. “How do you not know where your child is?”

“I gave her up for adoption right after birth.”

He shut his eyes for a second and searched for remnants of a prayer from his childhood. He came up blank. This wasn’t happening.

“I understand that if word got out you impregnated some woman, took off, and denied that you had a child, and refused to provide for said child, it would be damaging to a person of your stature.”

His eyes snapped open, his gaze locked on hers. There it was. The blackmail, the motive.

“So I’m here to help you out. You give me one million, and I’ll keep my mouth shut.”

Blood roared in his ears and it took him a full ten seconds to find the words. He leaned forward. “I’m not paying you a dime. You’re an opportunistic liar.”

She held her hand to his mouth. “Opportunistic, yes. Liar? Not so much. I had a baby girl. You had a baby girl, though by now I’d say she’s six. But don’t worry. She’s been adopted. You don’t have to do anything. Pay me, I’ll keep my mouth shut, and we can both go on with our separate lives.”

He grabbed hold of her wrist and firmly moved it away from his mouth. “I’m not paying you a freaking dime.”

She shrugged. “That’s fine. Your loss.”

“If I have a kid out there, I’m going to find her.”

She frowned. “Wow, I didn’t expect that.”

“Where is she?”

She shrugged. “No idea. Handed over my rights. I don’t even know her name. You can go ahead and try to find her.”

Shame and fear washed over him with the force of unrelenting waves. He cleared his throat, trying to focus, for now, until he was in private.

“But no matter what, you need to pay out.”

“I’m paying you nothing.”

“Then prepare to have your name dragged through the mud.”

There were very few moments in his life when he was at a loss for words. He’d always had a sharp tongue and wit in business dealings. This had rendered him speechless, because it wasn’t business, it was personal and she was unknowingly bringing out all of his old demons. He didn’t give a crap about his name, but his father did. His father was eighty years old, and he and Hayden had been through many rough years together. He couldn’t do that to him. He needed time to fix this. He ran his hands through his hair.

“Give me a few months.”

She crossed her arms and smirked. “No.”

“Fine. Until Christmas. That’s the best offer you’ll get from me, so I suggest you take it.”

“Then what?”

“We’ll see. But if she’s not mine, you’ll regret ever coming to my door and trying to blackmail me.” There was no way in hell he was planning on paying a woman that had abandoned a child that might be his and not come forward for years. He held her gaze and saw the exact moment doubt trickled into her expression.

He had it all. He had extreme wealth, homes in his favorite parts of the world, a fleet of cars, and every luxury he could ever want. He loved his job. He loved running his company. He loved acquiring business and real estate and turning them into something spectacular. But if he had a daughter out there, none of it mattered. Every success he’d ever achieved would mean nothing if he’d had a daughter that was living in foster care. All of it brought him back to the worst day of his life.

He looked at the woman staring at him. If she was telling the truth, if he had a daughter out there, nothing was going to stop him from finding her. He would find his little girl and try and make all of this right.

He’d find her and bring her back home with him.

Sugar City #2
Ophelia London
Releasing Nov 9th, 2015
Entangled: Bliss




He’s sweet trouble...

Natalie Holden wants three things: To be the best chocolate
chemist in Hershey, Pennsylvania, to prove her chocolate
recipe can help teenage depression, and to get over
gorgeous Luke Elliott, the guy she’s had a crush on since
birth. Unfortunately, he’s the microbiologist set to debunk
her chocolate study. And, of course, he looks more delicious
than ever!

Luke Elliott is still bitter over his divorce. Work is his passion
now, and landing a huge promotion is just what he needs.
What he doesn’t need is a crackpot trying to prove that
chocolate cures depression. The last thing he expects is for
the crackpot to be Natalie Holden—his “what if” girl from
high school—or that she’d still tempt the hell out of him.

They may not see eye-to-eye on her project, but they can’t
deny the explosive chemistry that keeps pulling them
together. Even when it risks their jobs and the very different
futures they both want…


“I don’t want to talk about it.”

“Let me just say—”

“Luke, don’t.” Tiny tears clung to her lashes, gutting him again. “I don’t want your pity—I couldn’t stand it. Not after…” She stopped like she couldn’t say the next word. “Not after everything.”

“Pity?” he repeated, wanting desperately to understand, but falling short like he always did with her. She turned to him, looking pale and so unhappy. “I know that’s how you feel, and I know what you’re thinking.”

She knew what he was thinking? He didn’t know what he was thinking, or what he was feeling. When he looked at this woman in the short dress and rubber boots, her hair blowing in the breeze around her tear-streaked face, he tried to pinpoint his feelings, name them. But there were so many he couldn’t grab hold of a single one.

            All he knew for sure was he admired the hell out of her. No, it wasn’t admiration he felt. It was something else, something that made his heart pound when he looked at her, when he thought about her kindness, her stubborn determination, the way everything she did made him want a bigger life than even he’d planned, while driving him absolutely out of his head…his screwed-up head that wasn’t ready for a relationship.

Or was it?

“You have no idea what I’m thinking,” he said. “No idea what I’m feeling—about you.” He walked to her, reached out and touched her cheek. “But we both need to find out.”
