About Love Hazard
When hate leads to love next door…

My dad is protective. Scratch that. He’s like the person who would grab a chair, place it on the lawn, and watch me walk across the street just to deliver an apple. So, when a bet between the rude, good-looking guy across the way becomes a full-on battle, it turns into absolute chaos.

He says my degree is useless and that I’m a rich, spoiled princess.

I say he’s an idiot who only knows how to fix motorcycles and is incapable of having a clean-shaven face.

He gives me a tiara. Thanks.

I buy him a razor. Perfect.

He follows that up with a book… Like. I. Can’t. Read.

I then give him soap—explanation easy there.

The following day, I receive a pink princess blanket that I may or may not have burned and tossed on his front doorstep, not realizing his dad is a cop. Now, both dads want the war to stop between us, forcing us to go on a camping trip to bury the hatchet—which I’m convinced he actually brought.

He’s a hazard to my health.

But it’s only a weekend. I honestly don’t know if we’ll make it out alive, but the dads are tired of it all. Regardless, I’ll come out, and prove I'm not the princess he thinks I am. Maybe he’ll end up lost in the woods—one can only hope.

One thing’s for sure. I will never, ever fall for him.


A bet with the boy next door? Challenge accepted. I’ll be waiting for my trophy at the finish line.

An Excerpt from Love Hazard
Grin smug, I was maybe a foot from the Jeep when I heard a crack and looked down.

A branch.

A branch under my foot.

Slowly, I looked over my right shoulder.

Hell was waiting for me there.

With a yell, I grabbed the driver’s side door and jerked it open, then started the Jeep and hit the accelerator with a bear close behind me.

“Ahhhhh!” Hazel screamed as she got thrown across the back seat. “I’m not buckled in.”

“But you are alive.” I took a turn, then another, then went up onto the highway and headed toward the small town of Canon Beach. “You’re alive.”

I was damn near hyperventilating when she crawled into the front seat, buckled up, and turned to me, her brown eyes twinkling. “Naked and Afraid has nothing on us.”

“Well,” I joked, “at least the afraid part. We didn’t have to get naked.”

The air thickened.


Again, I did it to myself.

“I guess.” Her voice was quiet. “There are no rules in nature, anyway.”


I wanted to ask her what she meant, and then I wanted to analyze and digest every part of the sentence.

My grip tightened on the steering wheel. “We’ll just find a hotel.”

Yes, because that would fix every ounce of sexual tension—forced proximity, a comfy bed, bathrobes, and adrenaline.


Oh, the lies we tell ourselves.
