We’re just a few short weeks away from the release of my next brand new Happily Inc romance, Meant to Be Yours. Thriller writer Jasper Dembenski has decided it’s time to give his hero a love interest—but he needs to shadow wedding planner Renee Grothen to get inside a woman’s mind. Soon, he’ll be inside her heart, too. On the Members page of my website, there’s a free extended excerpt available exclusively for members of my mailing list—you can read all the way to the end of Chapter Two.

In Happily Inc, love means never having to say “I do”…

Wedding coordinator Renee Grothen isn’t meant for marriage. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, plan. But she never could have planned on gorgeous, talented thriller writer Jasper Dembenski proposing—a fling, that is. Fun without a future. And the attraction between them is too strong for Renee to resist. Now she can have her no-wedding cake…and eat it, too.

After years in the military, Jasper is convinced he’s too damaged for relationships. So a flirtation—and more—with fiery, determined Renee is way too good to pass up…until his flame becomes his muse.

Renee is an expert at averting every crisis. But is she finally ready to leap into the one thing that can never be controlled: love?
