A snowstorm brought them together, but her past might tear them apart…

Bartender Ryan Carlisle is ready to leave his playboy days behind. He used to believe commitment was something to be wary of but watching his best friend fall in love and get engaged has him starting to think differently. His path to finding love won’t be easy, since the first and only woman to stir his protective instincts and make him dream of forever, is running scared and looking for a place to start over.
When Anna Thorn comes into his pub, desperate for a safe harbor, the last thing either of them expects is the thrill of instant attraction. They’re both trying to move on from their past and find happiness in their future. Together, they must learn to trust, and ultimately, to love.
As Anna’s past catches up to her, their relationship – and her life – will be thrown into jeopardy.

She has a passion for writing contemporary romance novels that are full of relatable heroines and the men who fall in love with them.

He was an award-winning physician in his field of medicine.

A genius who could diagnose you with the barest of symptoms.

The best of the best.

Too bad he turned out to be an egotistical jerk.

Mere hours into my first day, I realized that the man I had idolized for years

He was rude, arrogant, and totally full of… himself.

It was clear that my presence bothered him, that I was nothing more than an

And why didn’t I listen when my head warned my heart that he’d break it in two?

Title: A Date to Play Fore

Series: Dating #6

Authors: Heidi McLaughlin & LP Dover
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 11, 2020


Tee up for the long drive, it’s golf
After winning the
U.S. Open, Greyson Jennings couldn’t help but take playful jabs at the expense
of his prime competition, Bryan Nelson. His snarky claims during the press
junction may have burned off like fog on the green, if a week later they hadn’t
found themselves at the same golf resort. 
Hungry for a little
payback, Bryan challenges Greyson to a grudge match: Grey and his best friend
versus Bryan and his sister, Leah. Turns out, Leah is a ringer with a swing—and
curves—that turn Grey’s thoughts to a hole in one of another kind. 
Unfortunately, Leah’s
opinion of him has been formed by the many stories Bryan has shared. That may
hurt this golfer’s handicap, but he’s nowhere near ready to give up. It’s game
on as Leah agrees to meet Grey on the green and go head to head with the hole as
the goal. 
Can Greyson prove
there’s more to him than an impressive club and a carefully crafted bad boy
persona? Or will the sting of Leah’s rejection leave him in need of some alone
time and a good ball washer?

“You have got to be kidding me,” Bryan growls.
Heart racing, my eyes snap open. “What?” I gasp.
He points toward the fairway. “Look who it is.”
There’s only one person it could be to earn such a hated
look from my brother. And of course, when I focus on the guy about to hit his
ball, I recognize his stance. Greyson Jennings has his own style when it comes
to golf. I hate the guy, but he’s one of the best. You can’t help but admire
how talented he is.
Bryan fumes and clenches the steering wheel. “Of all places
he could be, why in the hell is he here?” I’ve been wondering the same thing.
Greyson never answered when I asked him. It wouldn’t surprise me if he did it
on purpose. The only way he could’ve found out would be through my social
Bryan hops out of the cart and reaches for his driver. Eyes
wide, I can feel my heart pounding harder. “Bryan, what are you doing?”
He tees up his ball and smiles. “Just having a little fun,
sis. If I knock him out, he deserves it.”
This is going to be a disaster. I just know it. The sound of
his driver connecting with the ball is so loud it echoes in my ears. I watch it
sail through the air, right in the direction toward Greyson. He doesn’t even
yell fore, and I’m too shocked to even speak. The ball starts to drop
from the sky and when it lands, it’s only about three feet away from Greyson
and his best friend, Eli. He jerks around and throws his arms up in the air.
Bryan bursts out laughing and flips them both off.
Greyson and Eli jump in their cart and head toward us. This
is not what I want. “Just great,” I grumble. “Now look what you did.”
Bryan comes over to me and leans against the cart. “The
fucker deserved it. It’s time he knows I’m back in the game.”
The last thing I want is to get in the middle of a
testosterone match. I don’t care about seeing who has the bigger balls. When
Greyson gets closer, his snarl turns into a smile when he notices me.
Definitely not what I want. Bryan steps forward, driver in hand.
“Sorry about that,” my brother taunts, “I didn’t exactly hit
what I was aiming for.”
Greyson bursts out laughing and steps out of the cart. “You
never do. You obviously don’t know how to handle your shaft.”
Here we go. Groaning, I smack a hand to my forehead.
“Really? This is what I’m going to have to put up with today?”
Greyson smirks at me, his gaze roaming over my bare legs
before settling back on my eyes. “It’s good to see you again, Leah. I didn’t
know you played golf.”
Busted. Bryan’s going to be pissed I didn’t tell him.
His shoulders tense but he doesn’t look at me. Instead, he moves to the front
of the cart to block Greyson from looking at me. “How about we play teams? My
sister and I against you and your caddy.”
The day just got worse. I’m going to kill my brother. Then
again, maybe we can teach Greyson a lesson. 
“Bryan, no,” I snap. “I suck at golf. We’ll lose.”
His eyes meet mine for the briefest of moments. Even though
he can’t read my mind, we have a connection. Bryan stands up straighter and
turns back to Greyson. “No worries, sis. I’ll play good enough for us both.”
“What are we playing for?” Greyson asks, moving to the side
so he can see me. “Money? A date?”
I roll my eyes. “You can forget that.” I hop out of the cart
and join my brother. “How about a thousand dollars?”
Greyson and Eli look at each other and I can see the
outright arrogance on their faces. That’s their downfall. Greyson holds out a
hand to my brother. “Deal. A thousand dollars.”
Bryan shakes his hand, the muscles in both of their forearms
clenching. “Deal,” Bryan agrees.”
Greyson tips his hat at me and smiles. “I’m happy you’ll be
playing with me.”
I grab my driver out of my bag. “I’d rather play with
myself.” He finds it hilarious, but I see it as a jab. The guy is an
insufferable tool.
Since Bryan already drove his ball to hit Greyson, it ends
up being my turn. I tee up my ball and swing. It slices to the right,
completely out of the fairway and into the rough. Greyson and Eli chuckle under
their breath as they drive away while Bryan glares at me.
“Please tell me you did that on purpose?”
My lips pull up into a smile. “Of course, I did. Think about
how much fun it’s going to be when we kick his ass.”
Bryan grins wide. “Let’s show him what we can do.”
Hole after hole, we’re neck and neck with only one stroke
between us. It’s a close match, but I’m holding my own, especially for a female
in a mostly male dominated sport. It all comes down to the eighteenth hole.
It’s a par three with water all around the green. We all managed to get across
the water, and now, it’s time to putt. It’s all down to me. If I can birdie my
putt, my brother and I will win. If I don’t, we’re screwed. I can’t let Bryan
down. He needs this win, and Greyson needs to be taken down a notch.
Taking a deep breath, I look over at the hole and then down
at my ball. It’s about an eight-foot-long putt. I breathe in and out and close
my eyes. Come on, Leah, you can do this. I open my eyes and tap the
ball. It rolls across the green … and right into the hole.
Bryan yells and scoops me up into his arms. “Hell fucking
yeah. You did it!”
He swings me around and I laugh. Greyson and Eli both seem
impressed. Greyson walks over and pulls out a wad of cash from his wallet.
Bryan sets me down and Greyson hands him the money. “Good job. It’s about time
you won at something. I hate it had to be because of your sister.”
Bryan narrows his gaze. “But at least she kicked your ass
cocksucker. You got beat out by a girl. Wait till everyone finds out about
Greyson shrugs and Bryan walks over to the cart. Before I
can turn, he lightly grabs my arm. “I’m impressed. Guess it’s not a surprise
since your father’s a legend. He taught you well.”
“Yes, he did.”
His eyes search mine. “Go out with me tomorrow. I think we
could have some fun.”
I snort. “I can do that without you.” My smile grows wider.
“Besides, I’ll be busy spending that thousand dollars.”
Greyson chuckles. “You do that. Maybe next time.”
I walk backwards toward the cart. “Not gonna happen.”

“What’s your name?” My voice rumbles quietly.
Her brows shoot together and her eyes dart away. Her look is
a dead giveaway that she’s quickly coming up with a fake name.
My lips quirk up. She chose wisely. The name suits her.
Innocent, but naughty.
“I’ll make it worth it, Eve.”
“Mighty sure of yourself, aren’t you…?” she asks, leaving
the sentence open.
“Taylor,” I supply, taking a number out of her book and
giving her my own fake name. “And I’ve never had any complaints before.”
She puts her hand on my chest and toys with the top button,
like she’s contemplating undoing it.
“Maybe I’ll be the first.” She smirks.
I dip closer, feeling the heat from her lips on mine. It
drives me wild. “Doubtful.”
“So, what exactly are we talking about here?”
“You tell me.” I grab a loose piece of her hair and trail
the end over her neck. Her eyelids lower. “What do you want?”

Disappointment hits, which is confusing as hell. I never
want more than a single night. I’m usually itching to leave before the night’s

me, I have to fight back the urge to yank her skirt up, tear away her panties,

Sweet mercy, I’ve barely touched the woman and she’s already

Dear Mr. Vega,
I felt it necessary to follow up on today’s meeting, since we weren’t
able to speak candidly in front of your son.
I was shocked to discover that you are Ryder’s dad. Given that
your ex-wife will be out of the country for a while and you are currently his
primary caregiver, I’m sure you understand why we need to establish boundaries
and etiquette. I think it would be best if we just pretend that we met in
person for the first time today.
Your son is a very bright (flirtatious and talkative) student and since
his education is a top priority for both of us, I hope I can count on you to
respectfully refrain from grinning at me, using that sexy tone of voice, and
undressing me with your annoyingly beautiful brown eyes if we should happen to
interact with each other again in the future.
Thanks so much,

However, I can’t promise to stop thinking about that kiss at the bar

“What were you
and the guys talking about?” 
Ah, so she was
watching me. I wonder what is going through that pretty little head of hers.
“Nothing much. Aaron was thanking us for offering to work with him and Julie.

“I agree, and

are a bit off as we get lost in our conversation. 
“What were you
girls talking about?” I stare into her eyes, hoping to get a glimpse of that
interest Aaron was referring to.

“You.” She pokes me in the chest.
“Me?” That
surprised me but thrills me at the same time. 
She nods. “You.”
She spins around. 
“Dare I ask what
She stops dancing
and fans her face. “I’m hot, wanna get a drink?” I guess I’m not going to hear
what she was talking about.
“Sure.” We walk
back toward the house together to grab something to drink. Destiny stocks the
coolers with tons of liquor options. She has mini bottles of wine, wine
coolers, beer, hard tea, and so on. We’ve all tried to kick in for the parties,
but she never allows us too. She hasn’t come out and said it but has hinted
that her parents left her very well off. 
“I’ll grab us
drinks. You grab us some seats.” She offers. 
I walk over to a
quieter area and grab us two empty chairs. I’m really hoping to get her to open
up. Jade and I have known each other a while, but Jade is not one to talk
freely with anyone anymore. 
“Here.” She hands
me a beer. “You know, if you keep drinking beer, your six-pack abs are going to
disappear,” she says with amusement. 
I laugh. “You’ve
noticed my abs?” 
She rolls her
eyes and takes the seat next to me. “Bentley, let’s be real, I’m not dead. I
still see men.” She takes a sip of her drink. 
“It’s the part
about you seeing me that I’m interested in.” I take a pull from my beer. I work
out hard for my abs. Between dance and my community gym, there’s no way I’m
losing my abs to a couple of beers. 
She leans back in
her lounge chair, crossing her long, lean legs at her ankles as she sips on her
spiked seltzer. I never realized how much I noticed her until she became
single, and I made it my mission to make her mine. 
“Bentley, I want
to move on, but when you’ve been hurt the way I have, it’s hard to trust.” She
glances over at me. 
I inch our chairs
a bit closer to keep our conversation private. Leaning forward, I rest my
elbows on my knees. “I’m sure it is, but what if I told you I was willing to
earn that trust?” 
She sighs. “I’d
say, I need to think about it.” She glances over at me. “I swore off dancers
five months ago and now…” 
“Jade,” I say her
name, stopping her from going further. “It’s not dancers you have to watch for,
some men just suck. They are pussies and can’t admit when things aren’t working
out for them.” 
She nods,
watching the waves crash upon the shore. “It’s all over the studio that we’re
going to end up a couple because of the connection we have when we dance.”
There’s uncertainty in her voice. 
“Do you deny the
connection?” I’m not sure she can. It’s obvious. 
She grins. “No,
there’s no denying that.” She sits up and turns in her chair, our legs
intertwined, and she looks me in the eye. “The problem is dancing is my escape.
I leave everything out on that dance floor, my heart, and soul.” She shakes her
head. “I’m not sure I can handle being hurt by another dance partner.”

Halliday was an accident. A chance meeting that changed my life forever.
My mother didn’t have secrets; her secrets had her. After she disappeared, I
had nothing.
Or so I thought.


When the invitation arrived, the opportunity to learn about my mother’s past
was too great to pass up. Heading west to meet an aunt I had never heard of, I
knew I was taking a risk, but I craved answers. Instead, I ended up with more
questions, and now the dark history of this town threatens to tear me apart.


It’s all about him.

I knew this was a mistake.Stella
Bradleigh was a distraction. Something to play with when my shadows got too

I spent my entire existence forced to live a life I didn’t want. There was only
one way out.

Or so I thought.

When she arrived, none of us had any idea what it meant. Meeting the beautiful
stranger with the mysterious past, I thought she would be a good time, and then
I could just throw her away like all the others. Instead, she consumed me, and
now she’s made me question everything I know to be real in my life.

It’s all about her.

I knew I was a mistake.Sometimes
what seems most fragile can’t be broken.

★ Folkestone Sins is a series of
interconnected duets.

Fragile Things is the first book in Stella and Poe’s duet, and the first book
in the series. This is a dark, mature high school/new adult romance. It
contains situations and flashbacks that may trigger some readers, language that
may be offensive, and scenes of a sexual nature (all consensual).

“Who do you think you are? There are rules here, and low-class sluts like
you follow them or else.” 
taken aback by her hostility, it takes me a few beats to register the rest of
her words. Trashy bitch, I can handle. Low-class, well, she’s not entirely
wrong. But slut?
Nuh-uh. No way, no day.
I stand,
pulling myself up to my full five feet eight inches, and get nose to nose with
Fascist Barbie.
princess, I’m sitting over here, minding my own business. What the fuck have I
done to offend your delicate sensibilities? Nothing. You don’t fucking know me.
So. You. Don’t. Get. To. Call. Me. A. Slut.” I fire each staccato word at
her. Though I’m genuinely bewildered by this girl’s unmistakable hatred towards
me, I am also seriously pissed off by her shitty attitude. “Back the fuck
up, Barbie, and leave me alone. Shoo.” Flicking my fingers at her
dismissively, I stand my ground, waiting for her and her minions to leave. To
my surprise, she leans in even closer, her cloyingly sweet perfume wrapping
around me like a candy-scented lasso.
not how it works here. You don’t get to just show up out of the blue and jump
the line.” She peers spitefully down her clearly after-market nose at me.
“There are rules, and just because you’re a Bradleigh, don’t think they
don’t apply to you.”
