Tara Sivec - Swing ​and a Mishap
Two ​years ago, I was a pretty big deal. I thought I had it all, until a blast from my past popped up on my social media feed, keeping my ego in check and reminding me how basic I am. Except sassy Wren Bennett isn’t just a blast from my past. She’s the only woman I ever saw a future with. Even though my soul leaves my body every time she says she hates baseball and has never watched me play, a year’s-worth of messages filled with laughter and sarcasm only remind me how amazing my “pen pal” is. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how fine I look in a pair of baseball pants; I’m still 3,000 miles away, and she’s taken... or so I thought. Maybe I should have thought a little harder before I dropped her like a seeing-eye single into the outfield. When an injury has me questioning everything about my life, I can only think of one place I need to go and one person I need to see. Home, to Summersweet Island, to get back my “pen pal.” Now I just need to make sure single mom Wren knows I didn’t come back for a change, and I didn’t come back for a job. I’m swinging for the fences, and I’m finally coming home to make her mine. If only she’d stop insulting me and stay in one place long enough for me to tell her. She wouldn’t try to drown me with a tub of ice cream, right? I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Tara Sivec - Christmas ​Cliche
‘Twas ​the week before Christmas and all through L.A., Allie Parker’s famous twin sisters were driving her cray. She fled to the mountains with a hostage in tow, hoping to sleep through the holidays, which were a sh*t-show. A crash in a blizzard, and a hot mountain man, definitely wasn’t part of her evacuation plan. Santas, and stockings, and creepy nutcrackers too, everywhere she looks, it’s a crazy Christmas zoo. But there are hugs, and smiles, and a beautiful view, kisses and laughter, and no time to be blue. Maybe this family, with their hot mountain man, will make this a Christmas Allie can actually stand.

***This ​is a prequel novella to Fisher's Light. It is about the life of Trip Fisher. Fisher's Light should be read before Worth the Trip*** It’s time for me to tell my story. I know I’m a coward for waiting this long to explain my side of things. I know I should have tried long before now to make amends. There’s nothing like staring right at death’s door to put a fire under your ass. I’m going to die with enough regrets to fill ten notebooks and that’s a tough pill to swallow, but when I meet my maker, I want to be able to hold my head high with the knowledge that at least I confronted all of those regrets. The Life and Times of Trip Fisher I’m sorry, I love you, please forgive me.

Tara Sivec - The ​Firework Exploded
Sam ​and Noel's whirlwind Christmas romance shot through Valentine's Day and is exploding on the Fourth of July! "You should get married on the 4th," they said. "It will be so romantic," they said. Did you know that during a pyrotechnic display, a single firework travels 481 feet per second and can take out a small village? Did you know it can also singe the ball hair off of any man standing within a mile radius of said-pyrotechnic display (and singed ball hair smells a lot like a sh*t-filled baby diaper that's been lit on fire), and it can make a vintage wedding dress go up in flames like a barn full of dry hay? Yeah, me either...

Not a day has gone by that I haven't thought about her, haven't missed her smile, haven't wished that things were different. The last time I saw my two best friends, I vowed to not stand in the way of their happiness, even if that meant I couldn't be a part of their lives. Cameron James and her emerald-green eyes were too much of a temptation and I couldn't stay and watch them together. Cameron deserved better than me. She deserved him. But now that I am back, things are different. I'm not going to stand by and watch the woman I've always loved slip away again.

Her arch nemesis from high school is no longer a nerdy computer whiz, masturbating to pictures in PC World magazine in his free time (allegedly).

It’s what they’ve always done, and twelve years apart hasn’t changed anything.

Once my sexy, spunky, former best friend gets over the shock of seeing me again and stops trying to drive a 9-iron into my skull, I can finally let her know I’ve also kind of, sort of always been in love with her...

Declan ​McGillis can't stand rich people. But working as a deckhand on a luxury charter yacht, he also can't escape them. Declan has spent years kissing their ass and doing their bidding...whatever it takes to make his dreams come true, and nothing will get in his way of being the captain of his own yacht one day. Mackenzie Armstrong knows what people think when they look at her. She knows from the outside looking in, it seems like her family has it all and doesn't have a care in the world. Things aren't always what they seem, and not only does Mackenzie have the weight of her family's struggles on her shoulders, she also needs to prove to Declan that she's not the spoiled princess he believes her to be. Declan can't ignore the sparks of lust between them, even though Mackenzie is completely off limits and absolutely out of his league. Mackenzie thinks a vacation fling is just what she needs to forget about the mess her life has become, and Declan is the perfect man for the job. Will this be a quick romp in the water, or will it turn into something more when Mackenzie finally gets below Deck?

Tara Sivec - Bury ​Me
I ​hear screams in my head. I see blood on my hands. When I look in the mirror I see a stranger. How is it that I can remember bits and pieces of my life, but nothing of any importance and nothing that makes any sense? Everything is twisted and nothing is right. I’m choking with every breath I take, suffocating on the unknown. Two days ago, everything changed. Two days ago, the people I should trust the most became strangers in my convoluted head. The dreams I have can’t be real. The fleeting memories that whisper through my mind are scary and wrong…they have to be. If they aren’t, I have something much worse to fear than my fractured mind. I need to find out the truth, even if it destroys me. I've been told my name is Ravenna Duskin. I’m eighteen years old and I live in a prison…

Tara Sivec - Életek ​és édességek
Carter, ​Claire és a banda visszatér, és készen állnak, hogy elkezdjék közös életüket. De vajon tényleg készen állnak? Túl egy pokoli leánybúcsún, pornófüggőségen, zsemle-baseballon és egy elrontott lánykérésen, túl azon, hogy rájönnek, mindkettőjük családja csupa sültbolondból áll, Carter és Claire végül elkezdi megkérdőjelezni a köztük lévő kötelék erősségét. Vajon a barátaik csak tovább rontják a helyzetet kellemetlen megjegyzéseikkel és kotnyeleskedésükkel, vagy meggyőzik a párt, hogy a „boldogan éltek, míg meg nem haltak” néha tényleg kezdődhet sörponggal is?

Tara Sivec - Csábítások ​és csemegék
Claire, ​a húszas éveiben járó, egyedülálló anyuka szeretne annyi pénzt összeszedni, hogy elindíthassa a saját vállalkozását, hogy a mocskos szájú, de (amikor alszik) imádnivaló kisfiának jobb életet biztosíthasson. Ezért kelletlenül beáll a legjobb barátnőjéhez, hogy segítsen szexuális játékszereket eladni. Egyszer csak felbukkan a városban Carter, Claire hajdani egyéjszakás kalandja, aki örökre megváltoztatta az életét. És bár egyedülálló csokoládéillatán kívül semmire nem emlékeszik Claire-ből, a lány gondoskodik róla, hogy ezúttal mély nyomot hagyjon a fiúban. Carter leplezetlen döbbenettel veszi tudomásul, hogy van egy négyéves kisfia, Claire pedig attól pánikol, hogy álmai férfija rögtön menekülőre fogja majd, látva a terhességről árulkodó jeleket a bőrén és a nullához közelítő hálószobai tapasztalatát. Ám semmi ilyen nem történik. Ketten együtt mindent megtesznek, hogy eljöjjön számukra az „örökkön örökké”. Az élet olyan, amilyenné teszed. Ha a tiéd vodkából, csokiból és vibrátorokból áll… hát legyen!
