This box set contains the first three books of the CLOSE TO HOME series. Each book is a full-length standalone story with a happily ever after.


Nia has one rule—don’t date neighbors. Simple, except the guy next door is single, handsome, and not inclined to close his blinds while naked. When her car dies, Conn takes “being neighborly” to a new level by offering a ride to her long-distance destination. Nia has resisted his looks and charm for months. Surely she can handle a few hours in his truck…

For months, Conn has blatantly put himself on display, hoping his pretty blonde neighbor would tire of secretly watching and come knock on his door for a cup of sugar—or more. No such luck—until an unusual opportunity arises. After a six-hour drive turns into a sweet-and-sexy weekend, Conn wants more than neighborly status with Nia. To get it, he must convince her to break the rule protecting her heart—by putting his on the line.


Nia and Conn’s wedding will be fairytale perfect…if their siblings can get along.

Free-spirited, anti-establishment Sara has always been on the outside of her family’s fairytale mold. Now she’s being forced smack into the middle of it at her sister Nia’s wedding. Alongside the cocky and annoyingly sexy best man—Conn’s cop brother.

Curtis doesn’t buy in to organized romance and fairytales. But for his brother, he’ll throw on a tux and fake it for a few hours. His flak vest would have been a better choice around the maid of honor. He should have brought his handcuffs too, because somebody needs to restrain the dark-haired spitfire—and he’s just the man for the job.

One night to indulge the spark between them, then goodbye—that was the agreement. Curtis isn’t looking for a relationship and he sure doesn’t want a troublemaker for a girlfriend. The last thing Sara needs in her daily life is a cop looking over her shoulder, no matter how hot he is.

But giving in to their chemistry is much more fun than giving it up…


To survive and thrive in her line of work, Candace has become a master at reading people. With most of her customers, it’s easy. Until the off-duty cop with golden-boy good looks starts coming around. He pays for her services but never collects, even though it’s obvious he wants her. Candace can’t afford to get to know or like him. Whatever his angle, he’s still a cop, and she’s breaking the law to provide for the only person who matters—her five-year-old daughter.

Between his looks and his police uniform, Jake never lacks for female attention. But when a favor for his partner Curtis lands Jake in a massage parlor, one sexy “masseuse” fries all his circuits. He should enjoy her services and move on, but it wouldn’t be real. It wouldn’t be enough. When he and Candy get together—and they will—it won’t be a paid transaction.
