About Us


Hayden Matthews isn’t looking for love—she’s trying to get as far from it as possible. She’s already wasted eight years in a failed marriage and is ready for a good life. A peaceful life. One where she can raise her daughter to be strong, independent, and happy. But to make that happen, she must fix her own life first.

Cam Vorelli has loved Hayden since he was in grade school. Always in the friend-zone, he stood on the sidelines, his heartbreaking, as she said I do to the wrong man. A man he knew didn’t deserve her, who could never love her as he did. But what could he say? She was marrying into his family. Cam would never break a holy vow much less be disloyal to his kin.

Until he sees the bruises on Hayden. Abuse is a game-changer.

Leaving a husband like Tag, who has a hot temper, a badge, and a gun is tricky. When Hayden calls Cam for help, she isn’t trying to lure him into any romantic webs. She needs someone she can trust and knowing her soon-to-be-ex fears his former NFL cousin is a bonus.

When Cam comes to her rescue, he isn’t doing it to win her love. He does it because it’s the right thing to do. But if she starts to feel the same for him…couldn’t it be fate?

When Creative Ideas Are Best Left As Ideas

Sometimes creative ideas are best left as ideas. Their real-life applications are not so impressive outside the fertile compost of the mind. For example, years ago, when my boys were playing football and I was active in boosters and what-not, I came up with the genius idea of announcing games using the appropriate group labels.

What if, the announcer adopted the specific group term for each team? Trade boring, generic labels for specific labels. For example, a swarm of yellow jackets. A pride of lions. A flock of eagles.

The plan worked great until we played a team of River Pilots. One tackle into the advanced-creative announcing system had me running to the press box to get them to abort the plan. The shipload of Pilots was not coming across as eloquently as one would like. In the stands, it sounded more like our announcer was a foul-mouthed increment-lover.

Some days, it’s tough being a word nerd.

Was she a monster for wanting to be happy?

Screw happy. She didn’t start the divorce process so she could be happy.  She wasn’t a child. She knew happy was an elusive, often selfish goal. Being happy was Tag’s thing. He wanted every day of his life to be some sort of party. She hadn’t asked for anything so impressive.

She didn’t ask for a big house or a new car. Hell, she didn’t even expect vacations. All she wanted was a simple life, a peaceful life. A life where she knew when her husband said he had to work late that he truly was working late, not diddling the bartender or dropping the grocery money into a slot machine. She’d have been content with a marriage that simply wasn’t miserable.
