Jackson wants the one thing he can’t have, his brother’s girlfriend. He tried to forget her, but even spending nine months Afghanistan didn’t make him want her any less. Now he was heading home, a home he shares with his brother and the woman they both want.

Emma believed that you should never follow your heart. She tried that once, and she ended up alone and broken. After she put the pieces back together, she decided she’d rather forget about love and just have fun. Who needed someone special anyway? Certainly not her.

When both of them realize they are on the same page, they embark in a hot, no-strings arrangement that satisfies their needs without getting their hearts involved. But when you play with fire, someone always gets burned.

 iscream excerpt
Pulling open the door to the local bar Jackson was hit with a wall of sound.  Josh hadn’t told them they were going to a karaoke bar, but he was cool with that.  He loved karaoke bars.  While Josh had a voice that would make grown men cringe and have babies crying, he had been lucky enough to end up with a pretty decent voice.  Get a few beers in his system and his inhibition usually went out the window.
He couldn’t see who was on stage at the moment, but they were tearing it up.  The duo was damn good.  When he finally got to a place where he could see the stage, he was shocked to see that it was Emma and some guy singing with her.  He never would have guessed a voice that powerful could come out of such a petite woman.  And just like that, the awe he had for her was replaced by annoyance when he saw how touchy she was with the jack off she was singing with.  Sure they were singing about needing each other, but it didn’t mean they had to touch each other like that.  In fact, she was so into the song, she didn’t even see him come in and take a seat at their table.
When the waitress came over, he ordered a beer and listened as Josh introduced the people at the table.  Then he found out that it was Blake, the same Blake who asked Emma out a billion times, on stage with her, and he was just irritated.  He shouldn’t care.  He knew that, but he did.  He didn’t care if they weren’t really in a relationship or not.  The guy looked like a weasel.
Blowing out the breath he was holding when the song ended, Jackson finally sat back in his seat and tried to relax.  Seeing the stunned look on Emma’s face was all he needed to put his mind at ease and be ready to enjoy the rest of the evening.  He could tell as they walked off stage and as they walked to the table that while they may have been chummy on stage, they didn’t look like anything more than friends off.
Emma took her seat, and thankfully it was next to him.  He wouldn’t have wanted to spend his evening next to Blake the Snake.  Payton had just finished telling a horrible joke when Jackson saw Emma’s hand up on the table.  The urge to touch her came on strong so he reached up and laced their fingers together, loving the way their hands fit.  Emma tensed up and when she gave him a dirty look, he dropped her hand like an electric current had just run through it.  He wasn’t sure what had just happened.  A few seconds later his phone buzzed in his pocket.
 What the hell are you doing?
Jackson smiled as he read the text.  She was getting worked up over nothing.   Uh, why are we texting?  You’re sitting right next to me.
 Because I don’t want to have this conversation with others listening.
 Sorry, I didn’t realize we were secret friends.  What’s it matter if I hold your hand?  You’re damn sexy, and I just couldn’t help myself.
When he saw her crack a smile, he knew all was forgiven.   Just didn’t think it’d be a good idea to present ourselves as a couple when we aren’t.
That made him laugh.   Too late.
 ??
 Josh and Payton think we’re dating.
Emma choked on her drink and Jackson patted her back until she caught her breath.  After she had recovered from her coughing fit, she went back to her phone.  This was stupid, but he’d let her do things her way.  They were, at least, getting somewhere.
 I didn’t know that.  Well, guess you can hold my hand since we both know what’s really going on here.
That was more like it.  Jackson reached over and grabbed her hand and this time, Emma laced their fingers.  A smile spread on his face when he saw Blake’s eyes widen and the smirk on Josh’s face.  Smug bastard.

iscream blurb
Payton always had one rule she lived by, no boyfriends until after college. No one seemed to agree with her, even her own mother who had her at age sixteen. Returning to school after an accident that flipped Payton’s world upside down left her feeling out of control. Holding on to her rule seemed to be her only lifeline.

Josh had been letting the past rule his life for too long. Finally being at school, he’d become his own man, and he’d been putting all that behind him. Just when he thought he had it all put together, life got crazy. Not only did his ex show back up, but Josh also found he couldn’t get Payton Whitmore out of his head.

Once Josh convinces Payton to give him a shot, she’s so closed off that he wonders if it’s even worth it. Josh can tell there’s something special about Payton though, and as soon as he goes all in, he’s ready to show her that some rules are made to be broken.

Editor: Candice Royer


After witnessing a murder Amy's running from a vicious gang. Her last dollar brings her to Smokey’s Roadhouse, a rough biker bar in the middle of nowhere Wyoming, where she takes a job in the hope of saving some money before the killers are again hot on her heels.

The last thing she expects is her ex-stepbrother, Rex, to show up. To her relief, he doesn’t recognize her, but he comes on to her like a bike in flames and she has to find the will to resist both the spark she feels for the man now and the dream he’d rescue her she harbored as a child. Amy’s still not out of hot water because a girl on the run is vulnerable. When one of the toughest bikers in the bar makes it clear he’ll have her—with or without her consent— will Rex stand up for her not knowing who she is? Or will she have to tell him her secret and reveal that the fire between them is forbidden?

Would-be rock star Rex is a man who knows what he wants and usually gets it, especially if it’s a woman—and it always is. When the band’s bus catches fire leaving him stranded at a hole in the wall roadhouse, and the sexy barmaid needs a favor, he’s willing to grant it—with strings attached.

She’ll do anything to leave, even if it means accepting the sizzling bargain only she knows is taboo. And he’ll do anything to achieve the fame he’s always craved, not knowing the attention will mark her for murder—or worse.

Like you, I’m a reader. When I read a good story with characters I can connect with, my everyday existence fades into the background as I enter a world that may contain exotic locations, adventure and excitement. And, if I can be totally honest with you, in my favorite stories I can fall in love for a while with an impossibly gorgeous guy who is the best lover imaginable.

So, maybe it won’t come as a surprise that in my books you’ll find hot alpha male book-boyfriends, sassy heroines who are much more clever and beautiful than I am, and stories I hope will make you laugh and cry while reading them, as I did while writing them. Oh, and some scenes you may want to role-play with your lover.

When I’m not writing (which is almost never) I enjoy reading, hiking in the foothills near Denver, live blues music, karaoke and now and then indulging in her karaoke habit.

HAPPY ST. PATTY’S DAY from New York Times Bestselling Author Virna DePaul!



Join New York Times Author Bestselling Author Virna DePaul in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day
and WIN a Kindle Paper White!

Ms. DePaul’s Home to Green Valley contemporary series features five irresistible Irish brothers looking to learn more about their American mother and possibly find romance along the way.

Book One, What Love Can Do features the delectable eldest O’Neill brother Quinn.  He is traveling to California’s wine country to learn more about his mother’s past.  The last thing Quinn expects to find is Love! The trouble may be holding on to the woman of his dreams. Find out if this sexy Irish hero can save his happily-ever-after in What Love Can Do.




When a sweet and sassy baker meets the new Irishman in town, things start to sizzle...
Quinn O'Neill gave up being a professional rugby player to help his mam after his dad died, and now she's gone too.  All that's left for him in Dublin?  Four younger brothers, and elusive dreams to explore.  Then he finds a journal revealing family secrets, and heads to Northern California wine country, where his mam grew up.
That's when Quinn meets her...
Lilly Parker.  She's the baker at the B&B, an amazing gazelle of a woman. Blonde. Curvy. With high cheekbones that give her the look of an old-fashioned pin-up with a naughty side.  She's wearing a pink and black apron that reads Life is Short--Lick the Bowl, and all Quinn can imagine is them: her, wearing nothing but that apron, and him, licking and savoring.
The more time they spend together, the more Quinn believes Lilly's the one.  Only she's headed to Miami in a week's time to pursue her own dream, and he has a decision to make.
Does he go back to Dublin and his rugby career? Or does he make a home in the enchanted valley town, start his life fresh, and see if love's enough to make Lilly his forever?


Book Two, The Way Love Goes features the playboy of the O’Neill clan.  Conor O’Neill is looking to play the field as he starts his new surfing business but one looks at Madlyn Sanchez and his plans go out the window!



A middle child of five Irish brothers, Conor O’Neill always enjoyed life footloose and fancy free. Then Con’s mother dies and he’s never felt so lost. With his oldest brother, Con explores new possibilities in Green Valley, California, where his mother grew up. Finding inspiration in the great, wide Pacific, Con opens a surf shop in nearby Timber Cove where he meets the classiest lass he’s ever seen.

Madlyn Sanchez is surprised when the Irish surfer seems to take a liking to her. Older than him, a high-strung wedding planner, she couldn’t be more different than Conor. But the two have one thing in common—they’re both looking to start over. Before Madlyn knows it, they kick off an unlikely, passionate romance. But when Madlyn’s responsibilities in San Francisco can no longer be ignored, she kisses Con goodbye and wishes him well.

Missing Madlyn more than he ever thought possible, knowing he’s let one too many opportunities pass him by, Conor closes up shop to go after her. In San Francisco, however, he discovers the truth behind Madlyn’s real life—a child and an ex-husband still in residence. Con just learned to commit to one woman—can he commit to a child as well?

In no time at all, mother and son have Conor’s heart. But can an Irish rogue who once cherished his freedom convince the love of his life he’s more than ready to put down roots while still teaching her to fly?

 Steadfast and pragmatic Brady O’Neill, second eldest of five Irish brothers, never thought he’d leave Dublin. But after the death of his daughter and his parents, and the loss of his wife, Brady realizes he can no longer live in the city where he experienced his greatest joys and deepest heartaches. Moving to America, he joins his brothers in Forestville, California, to open a family restaurant. What he doesn’t expect is the spark he feels when he meets Anna Kincaid, a confident, gorgeous woman with enough sass to sink a ship. 

Owner of a local eco-adventure tour company, Anna Kincaid is familiar with all that is Forestville. So when recent Irish arrival, the insanely handsome and sexy Brady O’Neill, wants to visit the vineyard where his mother grew up, she agrees to be his guide. Soon, Brady’s showing his appreciation with more than flirtatious smiles and mind-boggling kisses. 

The chemistry between them may be explosive, but tensions heighten when Anna’s recklessness puts her in danger. Brady’s lost too much already; and a risk-taking woman with an impetuous nature could cost him yet again. Will Brady risk giving all he is to Anna? And will Anna learn that there’s no greater excitement in the world than taking a chance on love?
