Gray Hartson is coming home. After years of playing to sold-out stadiums around the world, the tattooed singer is determined to build bridges with his sick father and reconnect with the family he left behind.
But then he meets her . . . the beautiful waitress with the smart mouth who makes him laugh more than he has in years.
One small problem. She’s his ex-girlfriend’s sister. The only woman he can’t have.
Maddie Clark was an awkward teenager when Gray left. Now she slings hash in a backwater diner, her dreams of being a famous concert pianist left in tatters.
Don’t ask her why. She’ll never tell. Strong women do what it takes to keep a roof over their heads.
Until he walks through the door and complicates everything.
Their attraction is wrong.
But foolish hearts never listen to reason.
Maybe he should write a song about that.
Take Me Home is the first book in the Heartbreak Brothers series of emotional standalone romances, set in the small town of Hartson’s Creek.
“You know what?” he said, completely ignoring her suggestion. “We should kiss. Just once. See if there’s something there.” He shook his head. “Who am I kidding. Of course there’s something there.”
“Is there?” she asked softly.
Yeah, there was. And the thought that he felt it too made her whole body feel on fire. Like one of those little lightning bugs they watched together, she could feel herself start to glow.
“You want to kiss me?” she asked, just to be sure she was hearing him right.
“Yeah. I really think we should. Get it over with.”
God, he was cute when he was drunk. “Here? Through the window?”
He looked at her with dark eyes. “Nah. This isn’t Romeo and Juliet.”
“He had to climb up to her balcony. I live in a bungalow.”
“It’s a damn good thing I don’t have to climb. I’d probably break my neck.”

Two tiny lines that change everything…
Doctor James Tanner is gorgeous, successful and decisively single.
He’s also a widower with a broken heart.
When he meets a beautiful woman on a fateful night out, their chemistry shocks him to the core.
Harper Hayes is irresistible.
With her pink-tipped hair and tantalizing smile, she makes him forget all his pain.
One night together won’t hurt, will it?
One night to get her out of his system.
Then he’ll leave in the morning without a backward glance.
But actions have consequences, and this one will change their lives forever.
And when Harper sees those two little lines she knows exactly what that means.
Now she just needs to find her baby’s father.
What a shame she doesn’t even know his name…
“I’m sorry I walked out that night,” he said when he closed the break room door behind them. “I don’t usually do that kind of thing.”
“Walk out after a night of amazing sex?” She raised an eyebrow.
“I meant having the amazing sex in the first place. But yeah, I don’t usually walk out without a word either.” He shook his head. “It was an asshole thing to do. The least I could have done was taken you to breakfast.”
“Don’t worry. Breakfast was included with the room. And it isn’t your midnight ghosting I wanted to talk about.”
“Nope.” She glanced at the door, as if to make extra sure it was closed. “Look, this is embarrassing and not at all how I imagined spending my day. I’d assumed I’d never see you again, and I was okay with that. Or as okay as you can be after waking up to an empty bed.” She took a deep breath. “So anyway, the thing is, I didn’t give you an STD that night, but you did give me something.”
“You think I gave you an STD?” He shook his head. “I couldn’t have.” She was the first person he’d had sex with in three years. “You’ve got the wrong guy.”
“I haven’t.” She pulled her lip between her teeth, her gaze meeting his. “It wasn’t an STD you gave me, James. It was a few extra sperm; I’m pregnant.”
