One kiss ignites chemistry and passion they can’t ignore, but is this only a summer fling?

Neighbors. Best friends. It was only a crush Beth harbored for Jacob until she was eighteen. Until London.

Neighbors. Best friends. That was all Jacob thought of her until London. Until she kissed him and stole his heart.

It's funny what Geometry class and a shared backyard wall can bring about. With a two-year age difference, Beth and Jacob were firmly in the Friend Zone during high school, but a pre-college trip to London will change their lives forever.

KISSED is the first of five books in the MY ONCE AND FUTURE LOVE REVISITED series exploring Beth and Jacob’s relationship with all its joys, flaws, and heartache. 

Dylan is the bassist for Jake Lindsey's band, but not when he's in his hometown. It's Christmas Eve and a sudden, strong blizzard has left the mountain submerged in snow, wrecking his plan to drive back to Los Angeles in time to attend Jake and Beth's party Christmas Day.

Jennifer's family was coming to spend the holiday at her cabin, but the storm is keeping them off the mountain. Resigned to entertaining herself for the night, she's startled by someone pounding on her front door--a handsome man needing shelter from the storm. Dylan is sweet, funny, and so damn hot she can't resist learning what he has to offer.

Was this a single night of passion, or the beginning of lasting love?

This story is intended for readers over the age of 18 due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations. 

My Once and Future Love Revisited series stand-alone story. Takes place after Beth and Jacob's final book. Minor spoilers.

Carla Krae Autumn 2019 Update


This year has been full of challenges.

In late April, Tech Guy hurt his left knee that already wasn't good. We've gone through a whole lot of medical world stupidity to finally find a good ortho doc through his chiropractor that said surgery isn't the right option and sent Tech Guy to physical therapy twice a week.

We definitely weren't expecting to have to spend over $1300 (and ongoing) this year. Tech Guy's insurance deductible is $3000 and then they'll cover 10% up to $4500.......except the Urgent Care started the submission order wrong in the first place so all these expenses haven't been counting toward said deductible.

Which was really freaking us out when the first surgeon said surgery. Tech Guy spent mid-May into Sept. saving up the $4500 to pay his part of surgery that's usually at least $10,000.

Thank God the new orthopedic surgeon thinks PT is more appropriate - and it's working. Tech Guy is able to walk without the brace for crutch for short distances around the house and at work. Prescription was 6 weeks of 12 visits, then reassess, and we're halfway through that now.

Then my uncle died Sept. 24th in Oklahoma. I haven't been able to see him since May 2004, and I couldn't afford to go to his memorial and burial, either. He was laid to rest on Monday, the 7th, and I hope it was without drama.

He'd sold his burial plot in California since making the permanent move. It took a bit to confirm that with the cemetery's records, and then my hopes of having closure here were dashed. He's now in a military cemetery in OK as a Navy veteran. I don't know when - or if - I'll ever get to see his grave.

I've been distracting myself with binge-watching Mad About You and some weaving. I haven't written anything new since April. I can't write romance when there's emotional and real life turmoil. It doesn't work.

And for just another kick in the nuts, Tech Guy had an unexpected $800 truck repair Saturday!

Sweet Reunion is coming down with the end of October.

Despite a lot of hard work and my best efforts, this book hasn't been successful by anyone's standards, so I need to rethink this series and do a relaunch in the future.

I'm grateful for those of you who did like it. I hope you'll check out my other books and have patience with me on the rest. The one story I have to deliver in 2020 is the Cocky Hero World book, because I'm contractually obligated. 

Everything else, I will let you know when I know.

Mr. Mayfair by Louise Bay Release Day! #contemporaryromance #romancereaders #romancenovels #newrelease

Mr. Mayfair, a brand new Fake Relationship, STANDALONE Romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Louise Bay is NOW LIVE!!

Get your copy today!

Start listening today!

It should be the most shocking news I’d ever gotten—My boyfriend is getting married.

Okay, technically he’s my ex-boyfriend. Two months ago he decided he wanted a break. I still thought he was my happily ever after.

On any other day, knowing he was gone for good would be the worst thing that could possibly happen.

But not today.

Because not only is my boyfriend getting married—his bride is my best friend.

And they’ve sent me an invitation.

There’s no way I’m going to attend.  I don’t care if it’s in beautiful Scotland.

Nothing and no one could convince me.

Not even when a deliciously handsome stranger tells me he needs to go as my plus one.

Not even when he shoots me a wickedly, sexy smile.

But then he offers me the opportunity of a lifetime—a dream come true. How can I say no?

But I have one condition. He has to be my new boyfriend. I mean, my pretend new boyfriend.

I'm about to find out that faking it can be a whole lot of fun.
