I knew the exact moment I’d become a ‘yes’ girl.

December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago.

The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again.

The dream of a ‘happily ever after’ was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him.

The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.

I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming.

I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life.

I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no.

The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.

A girl who can’t say no.

A guy who craves redemption.

A chance encounter?

It all comes down to this.

One question.

One month.

Be My December?

synopsis

I’m wild.

I’m reckless.

I’m Kat Willis – the ultimate party girl.

My goal in life? To have a good time, a feat I seem to accomplish with ease.

I’ve lived a privileged life in picturesque Crystal Lake. On the outside, I have it all. Money, good looks, and any guy I want.

Until he came along….Jaxson McAllister. Insanely sexy with a killer smile, I never stood a chance. He saw a part of me I’d kept hidden behind the façade of a good time.

I wasn’t prepared for him to turn my world upside down, but when he did, all the broken pieces of my life fell into place. Everything I’d told myself I never wanted, suddenly became exactly what I needed.

A home.

A family.

Love.

Book Two ~ Christmas Treasure
 
 
 
A small town where everyone knows everyone’s business prepares for the holiday season. It’s not just Noelle’s secret that places Annie and Noelle in harm’s way but a secret from within her own treasured town. Will the town pull together for the holidays despite what secrets linger?
 
Annie Dixon devised a plan with her friends the year before to buy the local tree farm. Her plan to entice Ryder Harris to stay in Glenville also worked. They just announced their ‘I do’s’. But with the busy holiday seasons ahead, Annie and her friends are swamped. They need help. The Life Bridge program is their answer. They will take on four women from a shelter in the city as interns and lodge them at the farm. 
 
Annie takes Noelle Matheson under her wing at the flower shop. Noelle has a hidden talent for flower arrangements but also a hidden secret that Annie wants to uncover. A sudden romance buds between Noelle and Annie’s childhood friend, Ashton Norris. Annie hopes Noelle’s secret won’t leave Ashton broken-hearted again.

 
 
“Flowers for all Seasons, this is Annie, how may I help you?”
 
She laughed with Ryder’s comment. “Your lips on mine would be a great start.”
 
“As soon as you get back home, I promise they will be.”
 
He told her he had one more stop for Colton and then would be on his way back but wanted to give her an update of his visit to the diner Noelle had worked at.
 
“Did you find out anything?” Annie’s curiosity built up. She hoped she was wrong that Noelle had a deep dark secret. Especially now that she’d hooked up with Ashton; she didn’t want him to get hurt again. His fiancée did a number on him a couple of years ago. He hadn’t dated since. It had been the talk of the town until last year’s incident at the resort when Ryder arrested the resort’s manager for money laundering, along with his head of security.
 
“The owner of the diner, Marg Peterson, was very helpful. But I wasn’t the only one at the diner looking for Noelle today.”
 
“Who else was looking for her?” Annie pulled out the stool and took a seat. This only proved her instincts were right about Noelle. Something wasn’t right.

Book Four ~ Sadie’s Santa
 
 
Sadie Wilden needs a fresh start, so when the women’s shelter administrator invites her to participate in a new program designed to safely house battered women and teach them a new job skill, she’s all in. If everything goes right, she’ll meet the social services requirements on time and be reunited with her baby—that is, if the police locate and arrest her ex. 
 
Sadie won’t put her daughter in harm’s way, no matter how much she misses her. She just has to lay low and do a good job at her new intern position.
 
When Gus Sadler, an investigative reporter from Seattle, shows up at her workplace, Sadie’s leery of his intentions—after all, it was the media that leaked information that put her baby in harm’s way.
 
Gus is drawn to Sadie right away, but he’ll have to work double time to earn her trust. Can he set aside his inclination to investigate her background or will he jeopardize his chances by digging into her past?


 
Gus was quiet—too darned quiet. Sadie wondered if she’d done something wrong but she couldn’t think of anything. She really liked Gus, even if he was a reporter. 
 
He pulled into a parking spot and turned off the engine. “You know I don’t even know your last name.”
 
“Wilden. Sadie Angelica Wilden.” There. She’d told him. Now to tell him the rest. She opened her mouth to speak, but when she felt Gus’ hand cup her chin, she leaned into him for the kind of kiss she’d waited for all night.

AUTHORS: JJ & TA Ellis

GENRE: Romance – Baby Boomer/Mature Couple
EDITOR: GimmeLots Publications
Cover Designer: JJ Ellis 
CONTENT WARNING: Strong Sexual Content, Reproductive Triggers,

Jackson and Francesca, Cole and Evelyn: two baby boomer couples who have overcome their own personal hell to forge vibrant, lasting marriages 
 
When Francesca and Cole pass away within six months of each other, Jackson and Evelyn continue the pen pal relationship the two women started some 52 years prior. 
 
And with each bit of correspondence they find their hearts healing. Together, can they create a new and lasting bond?
 
MARCH 2013
 
Evelyn’s day was a busy one and now she was ready to sit down, kick her feet up, and call Fran and Jack. If the last time they talked a week ago was any indication, their weekly phone conversations would soon end. After six rings, the phone was finally picked up.
 
“Hello,” Fran breathed.
 
“Hey sweetie. I just wanted to let you know I love you.”
 
“Love you too,” she managed to get out before pausing, trying to catch her breath. “Evie, Jack’s in the bathroom so I have to make this quick.”
 
“Okay sweetie.” What could Fran need to hide from her husband?
 
“I need you to watch over Jack for me when I’m gone. Help him with his grief.”
 
“Of course. You don’t even need to ask.”
 
“You just went through it, so I figured…”
 
“I know, sweetie.”
 
“You’re the only one I can ask. You’re so much like your twin, and Ethan is one of the few people my dear husband trusts.”
 
“He’ll be just fine. We’ll make sure of it!”
 
“Promise me,” Fran choked out through tears.
 
“I promise!”
 
“Thank you. I love you, Evie. Here’s Jack.”
 
She could hear her friend’s labored breathing. “Love you too, Fran.”
 
A moment later, Jack came on the line. “Hey Evelyn.”
 
“Hi Jack. She’s not doing well, is she?”
 
“No. It’s close,” he murmured.
 
“How are you doing?” She heard a sigh and some deep breathing before he answered. 
 
“I’m fine. Right now I’m just trying to be strong for her.”
 
“You’re a good man, Jack.”
 
“No,” he insisted. “I’m just a man who loves his wife. I hate this but she’ll be going into the hospital Monday. We can’t do it here anymore.”
 
“I’m sorry.” Evelyn felt like someone had just reached out and torn her heart right from her chest for the second time in just under six months.
 
Jack cleared his throat loudly. “Enough about me. How did the grand re-opening of Movie and a Pizza Place go? I bet you’re relieved that renovations are complete.”
 
“Everything is perfect. Cole would be so proud of his business. But I think I’m about ready to retire.”
 
“Retire? You’re too young to retire.”
 
Evelyn laughed. “You sure know how to flatter a girl. But I’m just tired. I want to have some fun.”
 
“I don’t blame you there!” He suddenly heard Evelyn screech and her sons laughing in the background. 
 
“Boy, you do that again and I’ll scratch your eyes out.”
 
Jack laughed at the goings on at his friend’s house. It made him miss his oldest son Ethan, who was away in the Navy.
 
“I’m sorry Jack. My boys are acting like ten-year-old children.”
 
“That’s okay,” he chuckled. “There for a minute I thought there was a wild kitty cat loose at your house.”
 
“Yeah, sorry about that screech”
 
“No worries here. It’s good to hear you happy again.”
 
“I’m getting there, Jack. I truly am. Could you give Fran a hug and a kiss for me?”
 
“I will. I’ll talk to you soon.”
 
The line went silent and Evelyn put the phone away. With her friend going into the hospital she knew there would be no more weekly phone calls. Fran had been her pen pal for over fifty years and it was now time to write the final letter.

She holds a degree in Communication Studies (Public Relations) from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas but never thought she would chose writing as a career, especially at the age of 42. She once wanted to be a publicist in the entertainment industry, but never a writer. Then one day when she was in her mid thirties she was going through what can only be described as an early ‘midlife crisis’ and ideas just started to come to her and she felt compelled to write them down. She finished her first book relatively quickly, but life got in the way and it took her eight years to revisit it and then publish her first novel. She can honestly say that now she is finally right where she wants to be.
 
JJ has been married to her college sweetheart (and romance novel hero) for twenty-one years and they reside in Casper, WY with their kids and one crazy mutt named Kreuger.
