In Anything for Love…
After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.
Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.
Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible.
All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

Claiming Her Heart
Charlotte stared at her computer screen, unsure if she should be thankful or irritated at her new muse. She usually wrote about five thousand words a day, many days even more than that. But over the last few weeks she’d written only twelve thousand words, four thousand of which she’d written after meeting über-serious and insanely handsome Beau. She’d never had to rely on anyone else to fill her creative well before, and the fact that he’d uncorked whatever had stopped up her pipes was bothering her.
She leaned back, propped her toes on the edge of her desk, and twisted her chair from side to side, trying to analyze the situation. After returning Chris Pine to her toy room, she’d shown Beau around the property. He’d remained just as serious and had taken pages of notes. She couldn’t imagine what he’d seen that needed fixing. There hadn’t been anything sexual about their interactions, although she had to admit she’d stolen a shameful number of glances at his gorgeous body. For research purposes, of course. And she’d come away with four thousand words worth of inspiration.
She gazed outside at the setting sun, and Beau came into view. He was carrying a ladder up from the workshop. Shirtless.
Her feet smacked the hardwood as she scrambled over to the window. Her eyes swept over the hard set of his chin, those ever-serious eyes focused on the path before him, and heaven have mercy, gorgeous planes of olive skin stretched tight over his muscular torso. She breathed faster with each of his determined steps. As he neared the corner of the building, she pressed her cheek to the glass, eking out the very last second of her view before he disappeared around the corner.
Turning her back to the window, she pressed her hand over her racing heart and closed her eyes. It had been years since a man had affected her this way. Although she didn’t get many visitors, she opened the inn for a few weddings and charity events. During those times, the grounds were crawling with athletes, actors, and other wealthy, sharply dressed men. None of them had stolen her concentration for more than a passing glimpse of appreciation, but images of Beau taunted her—his pulsing jaw muscles, the weighty intensity of his eyes, and that curt nod that should turn her off but piqued her interest even more.
Was it him that had her so flustered, or was it that he’d provided the missing inspiration for her writing? Writing was not only her career, but it was her emotional lifeline. It had pulled her through the most devastating times of her life.
Surely her heart was racing because of the return of her muse. Of course that was it. She’d been so upset about having writer’s block, her body was just celebrating the reprieve from it. That made perfect sense, except now she couldn’t stop thinking about him and how virile he looked carrying that stupid ladder.
She needed to capitalize on it.
She slipped into writer mode, sat at her keyboard, and went to work creating a scene to go with the ladder—and that man. As she hammered it out, she feared her muse would disappear again, and her pulse skyrocketed.
Yup. Definitely the muse and not the man.
She couldn’t afford to lose this inspiration. She needed to keep feeding her muse so she could make up for lost time and write this book. The idea behind the four thousand words she’d written had hit her like a sensual slap in the butt when she’d made that comment about the handcuffs and his bed. Her fingers stilled over the keyboard as an idea formed. A little harmless flirtation might lead to an incredible story.
She grabbed a pen and paper and scribbled titles as they popped into her mind. Nail Me. Hammer Time. Climb Me, Baby.
Okay, maybe her muse was still a little off, but she was coming back! Now that she had a plan to keep her muse alive, she focused on creating the story of the sexy contractor and his enormous tools.
