laugh out loud and give you more than one happy ending. 😉 Therefore, all of my
books contain heavy doses of lust, laughter, and love. My heroes are strong

submit easily. The back and forth banter is always epic.

Stand Alones

Designed by Letitia Hasser of RBA Designs

Welcome to the McCallister Jameson Foundation, the home to the hottest men with the surliest attitudes. Sure, they’re broody, stubborn, and stupid hot, but deep down, all they need is a little patience and a sassy woman to change their ways.
All books are standalones with crossover characters.

PitcherA friends to lovers prequel novella
I loved him, okay? I know I said we were just friends, but relationships change. So I asked him for a favor. It wasn’t a big deal—famous last words.
CommanderA friends to lovers romance
Turns out, asking your friend to take your V-card is a huge deal—so is taking in six Marines. But mine and Theo’s relationship has seen worse. We’ll make it through this together. Hopefully. Maybe. Fingers crossed.
GorgeousAn enemies to lovers romance
I made a rash decision, but I promised my brother I would always look out for his mentor—even after his death. It’s just… his mentor isn’t very receptive to my arrival. And, if he asks me one more time if he can offer me a ride home, I might bury his keys right along with his awful attitude.
DrifterAn enemies to lovers romance
I stole his bike. I had to. I needed it more than he did at the moment. But Connor Hayes doesn’t agree. Now I’m stuck paying back a debt to a man whose body belongs on a cover of a magazine and a smile that decimates my will power.
InterpreterA teacher-teacher romance
I have my own problems like finding another job before my work visa expires. I don’t need another role in interpreting for my new co-teacher. His constant frown and lousy attitude are sure to make my last remaining months in the United States a horrible one. However, he does make one pretty paperweight.

About the Author:

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.

The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

He’s only got one shot at hooking her heart

Red Aldean has his sights set on his longtime friend, Emma, who seems more interested in her regency romances than dating. A renowned river, adventure, and fishing guide, Red is no stranger to a challenge. With his heart on the line, he turns to his trusty Texas guide to fishing—all he needs is patience, a plan and the perfect bait.

Last Stand librarian Emma Corbyn prefers to find her romance in books. It’s much safer. While she’s not set on perfection, she needs honesty. When larger-than-life Red Aldean starts wooing her, Emma can’t help but let her guard down. And even this bookworm can’t ignore the sizzle that ignites when he’s near.

Emma feels like she can trust Red with her heart, until she learns he’s keeping secrets. Does Red need a better lure to reel in the prize of his life?


My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Red Hot Texan (Corbyn Sisters of Last Stand, #1)Red Hot Texan by Katherine Garbera

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A brand-new series featuring many of the Last Stand residents we have come to love. Red Hot Texan is Emma and Red’s story. Beautifully written with all the feels and scenery of Last Stand, Texas; this book was so good.

I’m in love with Red Aldean. I knew from the first pages that Red was not going to be the typical alpha, cocky hero. Red was confident in most aspects of his life with the exception of his attraction to Emma. In that aspect, all his vulnerabilities were showing. Red is an outdoorsman, literally. He runs an outdoor excursion company where he takes clients fishing, hiking, canoeing, etc. He is a tough as nails, sexy, strong, brave and loyal man. But when it comes to Emma, he is afraid. He wants her in his life very badly. Since they were children, Red had a bit of a crush on Emma. But in the last year or so, Red wanted to be her everything, because she was his. I will say, I loved his approaches toward Emma. He was adorable.

Emma is not ready to give her heart away due to issues from her past. But being with Red has her giving away pieces of it gradually. For the most part, these two characters are honest with each other about their feelings. Emma made some decisions, I didn’t approve of, making her seem selfish even though I understood her reasoning. She wasn’t being fair to Red. Red, on the other hand, had a secret. It was a big one and could definitely destroy what they were building with each other. As a reader, you will learn what that secret is pretty early on in the book. Unfortunately, Red keeps putting off telling Emma, claiming it wasn’t the right time. And well, you can probably guess that situation doesn’t go over well in the end.

I won’t give away the ending because it was so perfect for this story. As always, I enjoy reading books from this author and look forward to her next in this series. I definitely recommend this feel good, sweet story. You will adore Red!

This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

slows my progress. My sense of direction is distorted. If it’d been a clear
night, the stars would guide me to safety. Today’s nothing except another
miserable Shelby day. The more I think about it, the more pissed off I become.
Really? After the day I’ve had? It’s barely past seven a.m. and two Shelby
goons decide I’m their next source of amusement.
The only
victim I am is one of circumstance.
In the
morning before classes—every morning except Tuesdays, that is—I catch the bus
to Dayton’s Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts Club. Sticking my nose in a book used
to be my thing. But I can’t concentrate; I’ve lost the simple pleasures in
life. Now I get my kicks by kicking ass. I’m a natural, or so my trainers tell
me. Comes in handy when dealing with the Shelbian riffraff. Still, the odds are
against me. Two men to my one woman.
I pick
up the pace, ignoring the sting as the stalks smack my face, arms, legs. It’s
difficult to hear anything besides the rain. Have they given up? Has my
perfectly aimed cock-kick and a broken nose discouraged them? Caused them to
move on to a less-pissed-off victim?
The answer
comes in the form of a solid wall of muscle, which I realize too late that I’ve
run right into it. On contact, the man’s chest flexes beneath my breasts. I
jerk back, but instead of glaring up at him, my eyes are drawn to the little
green horse embroidered onto his pale pink polo shirt. A jockeyless pony
situated on the upper swell of what is the tightest, brawniest, most muscular
display of pecs around, the tight pull of his shirt across his chest leaving
nothing to the imagination.
I want to
press my thumb against that pony, make sure my girls got it right. Except this
man isn’t one of Dayton’s gym jockeys . . .
I bring
my knee up, aiming for his privates. He laughs and neatly sidesteps me, so my
knee connects with his hard, chino-clad thigh. Pain jolts through my leg and up
my spine. I grit my teeth, pissed off and slightly unnerved. I send an elbow up
toward his jaw. This move’s brought many a man to his knees, but he swats my
elbow away. I feel his control, his power. And I know I’m in trouble.
“What are
you going to pull next, fireball? Hit me over the head with that loaf of
bread?” he asks, his tone deep, rich like chocolate, smooth like truffles. His
voice is amused. His words grate on my nerves. 
Run, common
sense tells me. Stay, a recklessly rogue thought pops into my head. 
reluctantly drop my loaf of Texas toast. He’s folded his arms across his chest,
obscuring the little pony beneath his muscular arms. I stare at the spot,
wondering why a preppy like him is after me. “What do you want?” My eyes skim
upward and I’m greeted by smug, self-assured tilt of his lips. You, his smile
seems to say. I want you.
I’m tall at
five feet nine, lithe and long-legged. This man’s chin can rest on my head. A
perfectly shaped chin, accompanied by high cheekbones, an aquiline nose, and as
my gaze flickers across his face, deliciously full, kissable lips. He’s fair,
like me. Except he’s sporting a fine line of five-o’clock shadow.
jaw-dropping good looks snag my attention. But it’s the energy between us that
knocks the wind out of me. Sexual magnetism. It’s like the air’s supercharged,
undergoing some kind of chemical reaction, hot and bubbly and ready to explode.
And, as that lazy smile of his broadens,
I feel my
body physically responding . . . what the hell? “What do you want?” I repeat,
in a hoarse tone. Far too affected by him than I care to admit. He makes a
sound deep within his throat and I swear the crotch of my shorts are instantly
see if what your T-shirt says is true.
I glance down.
. Oh shit.
