The princess. The pauper. And a shotgun…
The only thing Jason is focused on is getting through his last year of college. But the instant attraction between him and Kerrie leads to one unforgettable night together.
When Kerrie’s wealthy, overly-protective father learns she is pregnant, he arranges a temporary marriage to teach her a lesson about choices and consequences. Jason reluctantly agrees to keep his participation in the plan a secret, because it’s the only way he can safeguard his future and his family.
Kerrie is blinded by her romantic fantasy and doesn’t suspect she’s been set up. Meanwhile, Jason guards his heart and vows that when Kerrie leaves with their baby, he won’t beg her to stay.
Just when it seems a future together is possible, lies, betrayal and deceit threaten to separate Kerrie and Jason forever. Faced with losing each other and their baby, will their fragile bond be strong enough?
Thank you for stopping by to get my latest news.
When Samhain Publishing closed its doors, it was a sad time for many authors. Samhain was great to work with and six of my books were published by them. I’ve re-released A MONTH FROM MIAMI and A FOREVER KIND OF GUY, the first two books in The Braddocks Series (see below). Soon THE FIRST TIME AGAIN, WHAT A RICH WOMAN WANTS, NOBODY’S FOOL and FANTASY MAN will also be available. Check back here or on my other social media for release announcements.
You can read about my life as a barista by day/romance novelist by night checking out Gary White’s article (complete with photos) in The Lakeland Ledger.
P.S. My web site always seems to be a work in progress, so be patient with me and if links aren’t working right let me know. Thanks!

Unconvincing disguises, reverse stripteases, and an uncooperative feline…
Itching to start over, Cleo Ward is preparing to leave her bad choices and troubled past behind. A temporary gig cat-sitting will benefit her relocation fund. All she has to do is blend in with her aunt’s retirement community.
Easier said than done when Daniel “Web” Webster, the sexy property manager shows up…
Nothing gets by Web, especially an intriguing too-young-to-be-a-resident female masquerading as a senior citizen. But since it’s for a noble cause, he might be able to overlook Cleo’s rule-breaking for a favor—or two.
But what happens when Cleo becomes more entangled with Web than she intended? Does she even want to escape the invisible threads he’s woven around her?
Warning: Contains frequent retirement community violations and unauthorized use of adult diapers.

A Forever Kind of Guy – The Braddocks Book Two
To her forever is a lie. But he’s a forever kind of guy.
Hayley Christopher’s high-profile divorce has given her a healthy suspicion of “happily ever after.” While she struggles to get her life back on track, temporary custody of her troubled nephew Fletcher highlights her every inadequacy. And her new landlord is an old crush whose parenting skills put hers to shame.
After the death of his wife, Ray Braddock walked away from his life. But now he’s back, rebuilding his business and thinking maybe he can even learn to trust again. He’s drawn to Hayley—and the silent little boy at her side—even though he may never convince her three broken people could make a whole family.
Hayley watches as Ray bonds with a silent Fletcher. Ray’s patience and persistence overcome her resistance and erode the walls around her heart. Ray might be the one good choice she is finally ready to make. But can she prevent Fletcher’s gang-connected father from traumatizing him again and following through on his threats to destroy her and those she loves?

A Month From Miami – The Braddocks Book One
A babysitter with benefits…a mechanic who can drive her wild…
Finally! Kaylee Walsh has escaped her good-for-nothing ex and her small Tennessee hometown. She isn’t about to let car trouble and zero cash throw a wrench into her plans.
But Rick Braddock makes Kaylee an offer she can’t refuse: free car repairs in exchange for a month of babysitting. He’ll make sure she’s on her way because he knows he doesn’t stand a chance when a woman is blinded by big city lights.
Even though she’s hit a bump in the road, no way will Kaylee become attached to a hot single dad and his little girl. For her, it’s South Beach or bust.
But when Rick discovers what Kaylee’s hiding he fears she may have stolen more than just his heart. Were the sparks between them real? Or is she a thief who took him for a ride?
Warning: Sudden cravings for grape bubble gum and cherry Popsicles™ may occur.
Praise for A Month From Miami…
“Readers will be hooked from the first scene thanks to Meyers’ comedic flair, which shines in this enchanting story. The relationship between the characters seems real and warm, and there’s nice chemistry.” –Romantic Times four-star review
“Barbara Meyers has written a heart-warming story of love and new beginnings as her endearing, small-town heroine searches for success and finds it in unexpected places.” —Jasmine Cresswell, USA Today Bestselling author of the Raven Trilogy
“The author has a real gift for bringing a real down home feel to both her characters and her story…a story that can make you laugh and put a lump in your throat at the same time…” – Coffee Time Romance
The Braddock Brotherhood were four stand-alone contemporary romances originally published by Samhain Publishing. The heroes, although not all blood-related, are connected to each other through the heroines. Single dad Rick Braddock’s story began in A Month From Miami, followed by his twin brother Ray’s story of finding Hayley in A Forever Kind of Guy. Hayley’s ex-husband, Trey, is redeemed with his own story in Book Three, The First Time Again. And the fourth book, What A Rich Woman Wants, tells Niko and Lesley’s story. The all will soon be re-released, so please be patient!

I highly recommend you read The Forbidden Bean as it is the first in the GRINDING REALITY Series. Book Two, COOL BEANS, picks up where The Forbidden Bean concludes. These books combine a bit of romance, suspense, and fantasy with a dangerous coffee bean addiction, which takes readers for a crazy ride they won’t soon forget. Click the covers for more information!
