Synopsis: A new adult romance from Entangled's Embrace imprint...
Sometimes you have to trust your heart to find out what home really means.

Duncan McAllister is marrying Elaina Tripoli tomorrow. Except--he's missing. Jordan, Noah, Griffin, Maggie, and Miles arrive in Greece for the festivities to find frantic messages from both the bride and groom. Noah and Griffin set off to find Duncan while Jordan, Maggie, and Miles try to salvage what should be a day of celebration before the wedding.

But the Americans have their own baggage. Noah's got a surprise planned for Jordan that has to go perfectly. Griffin's keeping life-changing news from Maggie. And Miles--well, he wasn't looking for love on this trip until a Greek sous chef named Alex rocks his world.

The race is on for Duncan to make it back to Elaina before she decides not to take him back at all. For Noah to make sure his monumental plan goes off without a hitch. For Griffin to tell Maggie the truth without losing her. For Miles to admit that letting himself fall in love is worth the risk.

Happily Ever After waits at the finish line…if the four couples can make it on time.

If Only #1 Cover

Synopsis: Sometimes it takes crossing an ocean to figure out where you belong.
It's been two years since twenty-year-old Jordan had a boyfriend—which means it's been forever since she, well, you know. But now she’s off to spend her junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland, the perfect place to stop waiting for Mr. Right and just enjoy Mr. Right Now.

Sexy, sweet (and possible player) Griffin may be her perfect, no-strings-attached match. He’s fun, gorgeous, and makes her laugh. So why can’t she stop thinking about Noah who, minutes after being trapped together outside the train’s loo, kisses Jordan like she’s never been kissed before? Never mind his impossible blue eyes, his weathered, annotated copy of The Great Gatsby (total English-major porn)…oh, and his girlfriend.

Jordan knows everything this year has an expiration date. Aberdeen is supposed to be about fun rather than waiting for life to happen. But E. M. Forster, Shakespeare, and mistletoe on Valentine’s Day make her reconsider what love is and how far she’s willing to go for the right guy.

Synopsis: Sometimes it takes letting go of the past to find out who you want to be.
During his semester abroad, Griffin Reed almost gave his heart to a girl who loved someone else. Lesson learned. Now he’s home, where following in his father’s footsteps may not be what he wants, but it’s what his parents expect. It might be taking the easy road, but he doesn’t see a way out.
Something that could have killed Maggie Kendall took away the person she used to be instead. Her condition makes her dependent on sticky notes, photos, and medication just to get through each day. The last thing she needs is a distraction—or someone new to disappoint.
What they refuse to see is they are perfect for each other. Maggie makes Griffin want to be a better man, and he makes her believe a future is possible. But these two have to find a way to share the secrets ripping them apart, if they’re ever going to have a chance at happiness.

Excerpt (supporting characters in If Only and What If?)
Elaina McAllister.
The first time she’d kissed Duncan—on his birthday more than three years ago—Elaina Tripoli had said
the name to herself. Silently, of course, because admitting to such a thought would have meant betraying her trademark Greek stoicism, and lovesick puppy she was not. At least not in public.

Never mind that the boy in the skirt, the Scotsman who never hid how he felt, probably didn’t remember that first kiss, thanks to enough whisky and pints to sedate a highland bull.

But Elaina hadn’t forgotten, not the kiss nor the sound of her future name echoing between her ears, the name that would be hers before tomorrow was done.

“Elaina, eísai xýpnios?”

The door swung open before Elaina had a chance to reveal that she was, in fact, awake. She rolled her eyes.

Eláte se, Theodora.”

Come in.

Thea waved a hand in her cousin’s face and pushed her down in the chair in front of the vanity.

“Look at you, exádelfos. You didn’t sleep last night?” Thea swiped a thumb under Elaina’s eye, proving the
purple tint to her skin had nothing to do with smudged makeup.

Elaina huffed. “Everyone is supposed to speak English today…tomorrow. The McAllister family does not know

Again with the waving, as if Elaina were an annoying mosquito Thea merely had to swat out of the way rather
than a bride-to-be who didn’t need reminding about the bags under her eyes.

Exádelfos. Cousin. Why does this matter when the McAllisters aren’t in the room?”

Elaina’s face broke into a smile that surprised even her.

Thea looked her up and down. “You have gone soft, Elaina.”

On instinct, Elaina’s hand wrapped around her torso, and her stomach muscles contracted. It was her father’s
fault, really. His and his assistant chef’s. They always made too much food, but that was what happened when your father owned a restaurant. And when they left her all the extras in the refrigerator, well? A belly was bound to go a little soft.

You need to sample, Elaina. Taste before the guests do. Make sure everything is nóstima.

“Not soft there,” Thea said, pointing to Elaina’s belly. “Here.” Thea’s finger rested above Elaina’s heart, and the bride-to-be couldn’t contain her grin.

Elaina sighed. “You are right. But if you tell him, I will hunt you down and kill you.”

Her cousin laughed. “Your secret is safe with me. All the world will still fear you; only I will know you have a
marshmallow heart.”

All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, her books have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading.

And in the midst of all of this, you’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago burbs.
