Abby describing Connor:


With the contrast of his sexy, espresso dark hair—almost black in this light—and his piercing ice-blue eyes that always looked deep in thought and so hauntingly deep at times, the man was a danger to female kind the world over.


Abby describing Brian:


Charming farmer-boy-next-door look with a body that belonged on a billboard selling grit-covered denim and boots like it was going out of style, and hair that always looked slightly overdue for a haircut…and all the sexier for it.



Connor describing Abby


Wide, guileless eyes—a charming novelty he was positive he hadn’t encountered in years—untinted lips, a light tan that actually appeared to be from the sun, and deep, dark reddish brown locks done up in a ponytail more comfortable than fashionable. She was the very definition of a buxom beach babe brunette, if such a category existed, with an appealing blend of innocence and intelligence behind a pair of unaccountably sexy, cliché-free glasses.


Brian describing Abby:


From the day they’d met, Abby had always been the sweet, gorgeous ‘nice girl’ with the soulful doe eyes, killer curves, and the incredible smile that always made his day. Not classically stunning as his late wife had been, but just as captivating in her own unique way. More than that, she had an unparalleled inner beauty and a trademark quirkiness that had immediately drawn him in, catapulted her to the status of his best friend practically from their first conversation.

Resisting the Bad Boy (Book 1) - only 99c!












He’s the ruthless lawyer with a not-so-little black book.  And one simple rule as unyielding as his heart: nothing more than a month.


She’s the doctoral student helping to raise his niece.  His brother’s best friend.  And the valium for his soul he had no business wanting.  


To be fair, she did ask him for advice—on what she could do to stop being ‘the nice girl’ for a little bit.  


All he did was answer truthfully.


“Try something new that excites you.”


…Preferably him.


"A fast-paced, heartfelt, and fun read!" -- #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely


"This book has given me one of the worst (or best) book hangovers I've had in a LONG time! I absolutely LOVED it." -- Mama's Reading Break


Falling for the Good Guy (Book 2) - only 99c!














He’s her best friend.  The good guy--the polar opposite of his brother Connor.  The one everyone’s hell-bent on believing is her perfect match.  But the thing is, that was just never an option for her with Brian.


...Until now.


For over a decade, through his high school sweetheart’s illness and eventual passing, Abby had been his pal, his rock.  A second mother to his young daughter.  His heart simply wasn’t free to love her then.

But it is now.

Now that Connor’s left her with a shattered heart to put back together on her own, Brian has exactly one chance to speak up or forever hold his peace.


"A stellar trilogy with unforgettable characters and a truly unique plot...will leave you wrecked one moment and elated the next." -- Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews


"What. A. Love. Triangle.  Witty, raw, and at times, heart-wrenching." -- Ebook Escapes  


Choosing the Right Man - (Book 3) only $2.99!













The one she never thought she could keep.  

The one she never hoped she could have.

A decision she never dreamed she’d have to make.


"A unique trilogy that will take you on a roller coaster of emotions. I couldn’t put these books down!" -- NYT Bestselling Author Carly Phillips


"Found my heart melting at every turn...I laughed and I cried and was put through an emotional roller coaster I wish I could ride again and again." -- Coffee and Characters


Finding the Right Girl - (STANDALONE!) only $2.99!












Being a single dad who’s loved and lost twice in his life, all Brian’s looking for now is something casual for a change.  Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn't exactly versed in the fine art of flings.  So he looks to the outrageously unique and button-pushing Tessa for a crash course.


There's absolutely no way he's falling in love with this one...right?

Tessa has no idea why she told Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She's never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn't know how to begin flinging a guy like him. Not only does the man have as many demons as she does, but he's got her thinking of the one thing she stopped hoping for years ago.


A happily ever after.


“Emotionally charged with wonderful characters, Violet Duke made me laugh and cry in this incredible romance. One of the best I’ve read this year.” -- NYT Bestselling Author J.S. Scott


"I love the way Violet weaves real life into her fictional characters, and I applaud her for tackling issues most authors wouldn't think of using in a romance book." -- Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews


"Refreshing, engaging, sweet, and spunky all at the same time.  This book tugs at your heartstrings in those oh-so-sweet ways...definitely a keeper!" -- The Naughty Vixen Blog






Abby sat up and called out casually, “Hey, could you toss me my lotion?” She pointed at the dresser behind him. “My legs get so dry here in the summers without it.”

Such an innocent request.

That he didn’t trust for one second.

Connor was sure this was going to be a look but don’t touch deal with her lathering up those gorgeous legs of hers while he sat there like a schmuck.

Staring, no doubt.

He narrowed his eyes and began silently listing all the ways he was going to pay her back for this when her two-week stay here was up.

Slapping an unaffected look on his face, he passed her the lotion, forcibly blocking all the erotic lotion-inspired images that were attempting to take over his brain.

Evil woman.

Only a day into their no-sex agreement and already he was closer to begging than he cared to admit.

While avoiding direct eye contact with the skin smoothing extravaganza, his gaze strayed to the partially open plastic bag sitting atop her dresser. It was over at the other end but he recognized the hot purple logo on the bag immediately.

Just like that, every muscle in his body stopped working.

Well, save one, that is.

The bag was from an adult novelty shop his friend Kim owned just a little north of here. He could only make out two of the items in the bag but they were enough to send his blood pressure skyrocketing—the first was what looked to be the tiniest pair of sheer white panties that would effectively cover nothing and, Lord help him, a silver bullet vibrator.

He was going to have a stroke.

Stifling a groan over how the word ‘stroke’ instantly made him think about rubbing one off, he gripped the edge of the dresser like a man possessed.

The door was just a few feet away.

He could make it.

But first he needed to get some much needed air into his lungs.

Breathe, you moron!

He dragged in a breath.

And that’s when he heard it.

The tiniest whisper of a giggle.

“Why you little—” Connor lunged at Abby as she shrieked out in laughter and tried ducking around him to make for the door. Snatching her around the waist, he hoisted her cackling body up over his shoulder and tossed her back onto the bed. “You set me up.”

Her giggles effervesced, the unliddable glee in her eyes giving zero credence to all her perfectly scandalized denials.

He trapped her under him, burying his grin against the curve of her neck, reveling in the unfamiliar experience of having fun with a woman in bed without sex being a factor. As he skimmed a smile over her collarbone, he felt the gasp she couldn’t contain like a shot of spiked adrenaline racing through his veins.

Heading straight for his heart.

It took more effort than usual to block its path.
