She’s fine as she is thank you very much. Her first problem is that Jeb Wakefield doesn’t want to sell his farm, and her second problem is Jeb’s grandson Dan, the finest looking man Holly’s ever seen. 

Excerpt: Chapter One
Last week

She’d probably fall and break every bone in her body. How could the Wakefields stand this horrible, cold house?

She tiptoed down the stairs and opened the door that led to the kitchen. The room looked gloomy, but at least the banked fire somewhat kept the cold at bay and provided a dim light to see by. She got her water, used the bathroom, and with no more reason to delay, she dashed back up the steps toward her icy room.

If they sell the farm, maybe they’ll buy a warmer house with a night-light. I can’t see a wink. Was my room on the right or left side of the hall? Wait. It was the right.


This Week: We're picking up where we left off last week.

Holly hurried into the room and quickly slid under the bedcovers. Thank goodness for Loretta who had kept the bed warm. She stuck her cold feet on Loretta’s side of the bed and gradually warmed up enough to sleep.
~*~
Holly snuggled closer to the hard, masculine form 
beside her. What a great dream! She sighed as she stroked a heavily muscled arm. Her hand curved around his shoulder, and she traced the outline of the muscles in his back.

She gasped as strong arms encircled her body. Her pulse raced as he nipped and nuzzled the sensitive spot below her ear.

Unbroken Promises


Title: Unbroken Promises
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: Standalone Friends to Lovers Romance
Release Date: September 27, 2018 Cover Design: Jay Aheer @ Simply Defined Art
When we were kids, we made all kinds of promises. We promised to always be best friends, to always put each other first, and that no matter what, no one would come between us. Little did we know that life had its own plans.
We grew up and reality set in. We realized that not all love lasts forever, and some promises are meant to be broken. It’s ironic that the promises we made as kids, the ones we thought would hold us together, might just be the very thing that could tear us apart.

Title: Choose Me: An Opposites Attract Romance
Series: All I Want Series #1
The wrong side of the law never felt so good.
He's the sexy confident cop - and impossible to resist.
But he sees things in black and white. 
And we work on opposites of the law. 
They said we'd never work. 
Not when he's running for sheriff. 
And he can't be seen with me.
But when the election heats up. 
So does our relationship. 
Until everything implodes. 
And he's forced to decide between his dream job and love. 
All I want is for him to choose me.

“Still bitter, Ms. Lawyer?” Luke asked, pulling out a chair from our table and sat down. “I was hoping for some excitement. I’m tired of all the plea deals,” I said. He’d changed since work because now he wore a faded pair of jeans and a black fitted T-shirt that did everything for his muscled chest. My eyes traveled down to his thighs, which filled out his well-worn jeans. He had spread his legs in that confident sprawl that men used when relaxed. He leaned back and placed his hands behind his head, giving me a long considering look. The position caused his biceps to flex, which I couldn’t help but admire. “Well, when you’re on the wrong side of the law, the wins are few and far between.” His mouth twitched with amusement. “Oh, I’m on the wrong side of the law now, am I?” I responded. I was beginning to enjoy these interactions with Luke. I glanced over at Ashley, who mouthed, “What is happening right now?”

Title: Be With Me: A Friends to Lovers Romance
Series: All I Want Series #2
She's done being friends
Jack's the hot protective firefighter and my friend.
He came home to save his dad's marina.
But someone is determined to close the marina for good.
When Jack stops by my bakery, I can't help but notice he's filled out since high school and I can't resist his boyish grin.
I don't want to be his friend anymore.
But his job is temporary and everyone always leaves.
All I want is for him be with me.

My eyes traveled around the room until I saw Jack leaning against the counter by the coffee machine in his department-issued navy-blue shirt, blue cargo pants, and boots. I flushed to find his eyes on mine. I couldn’t get the feel of his hands or lips out of my head. He made no move to grab a donut, so I asked, “Not hungry this morning?” “Oh, I’m always hungry.” His eyes were steady on mine as he took a sip of coffee. After the dream I had, I couldn’t help but take that comment literally. “You should eat an apple cider donut before they’re gone.” My heart pounding. I turned to grab a plate to hide my flushed face, but Jack grabbed my hand pulling me back. “Don’t worry about it, I can get it myself,” he said. The movement knocked me off balance and I fell back onto his hard chest. His arm came around my middle to steady me. “Whoa there,” he whispered into my ear, as his body curled around mine. “I said I could get it myself. You’ve been on your feet all morning. Why don’t you sit down and rest?” I heard the guys joking around me, but couldn’t follow their conversation. The room seemed to melt away and all I could think about was turning in Jack’s arms and kissing him. “Samantha?” Jack’s voice caressed my ear again. “Yeah?” I asked, breathing in the smell of coffee, and leaning my head back a little to look up at him. His eyes crinkled in amusement and his lips tilted up into a smile. “Are you going to sit down?” His chest was warm on my back, and my hands instinctively gripped his bare forearms, which wrapped around my waist. I wanted to sink back into him even more, but I reluctantly moved out of his hold, immediately feeling the loss of warmth.

Title: Burn For Me: An Enemies to Lovers Romance
Series: All I Want Series
Release Date: August 19, 2019
He’s gorgeous, charming, and irresistible – and he knows it.
We’re in competition for the same job and nothing will stand in my way.
Not his sparkling blue eyes, cocky smirk, or those dimples.
Too bad he didn’t get the message.
He says I’m a challenge he can’t resist.
And I’m playing with fire.
All I want is for him to burn for me.

“Why?” My voice softened. In all the time I’d known Logan, he was light-hearted and fun. This was the first real emotion I’d seen from him and I wanted to know more. “Why shouldn’t I work for your dad, Logan?” A current sizzled between us and his eyes darkened. He leaned down until his mouth was by my ear. “You’re playing with fire.” The feel of his breath across the shell of my ear made me shiver. I wasn’t sure if he meant because I’d asked about his dad or our sudden proximity. Did he feel the pull between us? Being this close to him, feeling the warmth of his body, I wanted to play with fire. I unconsciously leaned closer to his body and imagined his hand moving higher to my neck, cupping my head as he tilted me the way he wanted—. “Hey! I hear congratulations are in order. Sawyer said you got the job,” Luke said as I guiltily jumped back from Logan.
