Falling Hard Book Excerpt:

One hot summer night — one bad decision — and two people who should never fall in love… Falling for the girl who accused his brother of rape seven years earlier can only be trouble. Especially when he begins to wonder if she was right. Seven years ago, Gemma tried to clean up her shaky past by dating the clean-cut football captain brother instead of the bad boy racer who revved her heart. But the “good” brother committed an unspeakable act against her, and when the charges were dropped, she left town. Now she must return to the beach town to help her father recover from an accident and face those who called her a liar — and the brother she should have gone for. The one who has everything to lose if he falls for her.

Hard to Fall Book Excerpt:

Wedding bells are ringing—and tempers are flaring—as the Take the Fall series continues in this sweet, sexy novel from the bestselling author of After We Fall (“This beautiful story kept me transfixed until the very end.”—Krista Lakes). As a hardworking, hard-partying firefighter, Hayden Walker values his career and his freedom. But as the eldest son of a U.S. senator, he agreed long ago to follow in his father’s footsteps and run for office, and that means settling down and marrying the picture-perfect wife. Hayden just isn’t ready for that sort of commitment . . . not with women like beautiful, curvy Saylor Dean—the naughty bridesmaid he recognizes the morning after his buddy’s wedding—tempting Hayden to stay single forever. The unwanted love child of a well-known politician, Saylor has always felt isolated and alone, her only solace the animal shelter she runs in Forrestville. Then she meets Hayden at her best friend’s wedding. During their impulsive and unforgettable night together, Saylor feels desired like never before—only to wake up and find that Hayden doesn’t remember his drunken proposal, or their hasty marriage, or her. But when the truth comes out, Saylor finds it’s a lot harder to fall out of love than in love.

Who will trip up and fall in love first? Darcy Welham's dad is ready to sell his five-star restaurants and retire, but she's determined to prove she can be trusted to keep the family business going. Darcy's sure it's what her mother would have wanted. Only one problem: her life turns into a comedy show when she's nervous. Pratfalls, spills, slips and fires--all in a day's misadventures for Darcy. She can't even wait on tables without dumping food into the customers' laps. When supper lands on a sensitive area of businessman Michael Davidson's finely creased trousers, he tries to have his gorgeous but careless waitress fired, only to discover that she's the person he has to win over if he wants to buy the restaurant chain for his bosses. From that antagonistic start, Darcy and Michael soon find that there's more to each other than first expected. She's clumsy because she's got low self-esteem. She may be a disaster as a waitress, but she's a genius as a cook, with a talent for creating mouth-watering new dishes. Darcy begins to realize that Michael is not a stuffed shirt at heart--he's patient, strong and brave, which any man who dates Darcy has to be, because she turns into a Danger Zone every time he makes her heart flutter.

Updated with photos and new interviews. The heady, drug-induced decades of the sixties and seventies provide the backdrop for this all-star account of addiction and recovery. Among the celebrities interviewed by Gary Stromberg for The Harder They Fall are comedian Richard Lewis; musicians Alice Cooper, Grace Slick, Dr. John, and Chuck Negron (Three Dog Night); actors Malcolm McDowell and Mariette Hartley; Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Franz Wright; writer Anne Lamott; and athletes Doc Ellis and Gerry Cooney. The good news? All are recovering and leading lives of extraordinary accomplishment. "My own disease would like to tell you that my 'isms' are now my 'wasims.' But as this book reads, it's an ongoing process that leads to the sweetest spirituality. My hat's off and great kudos to those who share their story like it is for those of us who still need to hear it." -Steven Tyler - Aerosmith "Read this book! Here are the real winners in life. The best and the brightest with devastating illnesses, living clean, sober, confident, happy lives. If you want to know about alcoholism and addiction and how to get "weller than well," read this book." Capt. Ronald E. Smith - Chairman of the Dept. of Psychiatry, National Naval Medical Center and for twelve years the Psychiatric Consultant to the U S Congress "Here are the stories of twenty-one celebrities who had everything until their abusive chemicals showed them that, at the bottom, they had nothing at all. These pioneers in the modern drug abuse epidemic eventually each found their way into recovery, even redemption. These inspiring stories tell of the joy of finding a way of being that is more precious than fame and fortune." Robert L.

He may be a giant but giants have been licked before. Don’t forget Goliath. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Eddie Lewis, former student of Princeton and would-be playwright, never expected to make his living writing lies. But that’s precisely what he does to pay his rent: Eddie is a manipulator of headlines, an inventor of hyperbole, all on behalf of his boss Nick Latka and his dealings in the boxing business. Nick’s latest project is the massive Toro Molina, discovered in the Argentine and now being primed for the fight – or at least, for a few elaborate performances. For in the world of 1940s boxing, fixing the game is all too easy. Latka and his team of promoters, punch-drunk ex-fighters and professional gamblers play the unwitting Molina for all they can get.
