The co-writing duo of Mindy Michele brings you the much anticipated conclusion of Ridley and Reagan’s story. A tale of music, forgiveness, and second chances.

Sometimes we have to walk away. Sometimes we have to trust, and occasionally our biggest regrets carry us back for redemption.

We’re pretty awesome! We both write books. We both live in the Carolina’s (Mindy in South, Michele in North). We like singing in the car, eating white cheddar popcorn, and going on road trips together. You’ll find us sharing a table at a few book signings each year. We have a love of romance, New York, anything sweet, and great books.
Together we’ve written four novels and one novella, with many more in the works. We’re currently working on the Backroads Duet.

Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.
Jilted bride Audra Montgomery wants to reset her life at the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach. A good girl for far too long, Audra has penned a list of must-do experiences she’s sure will change her. When the hotel’s maintenance guy, a “Mr. Jones,” knocks on her door, she wonders if the sexy handyman might just come in handy when enacting some of the spicier items on her agenda.
Kane Hathaway, general manager of the resort, didn’t set out to deceive his guest when he performed a minor repair. But it’s freeing to imagine life without the responsibilities of the family business. Then there’s the whole “Heartbreak Hotel” designation—cynical Kane doesn’t believe for a minute that a stay on site can heal the wounds left by bad romance. But every moment in Audra’s company sparkles with magic—can this be love?
Me and Mr. Jones is book two in the Heartbreak Hotel series and is a STANDALONE.

S. Nelson grew up with a love of reading and a very active imagination, never putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard until 2013. Her passion to create was overwhelming and within a few months she’d written her first novel, Stolen Fate. When she isn’t engrossed in creating one of the many stories rattling around inside her head, she loves to read and travel as much as she can. She lives in the Northeast with her husband and two dogs, enjoying the ever changing seasons.
Vivian Fitzpatrick is a big dreams girl stuck in a small town.
She likes her job, and she adores her friends, but there’s a tiny part of her that still wants adventure. Wants all the unfulfilled dreams to come true. She still wants to base jump and skydive and do everything her ex-boyfriend said she was too chicken-shit to do.
Which is probably how she ends up moonlighting for a phone sex line.
Matteo Soto is just trying to figure out how to live again.
A bomb in Iraq left half his unit dead, and Matteo broken. He puts on a good act–the rookie at RCPD, taking care of his dead best friend’s family. But it feels too much like going through the motions, too much like marking time.
He needs a reason to get up in the morning.
She needs to feel alive.
I’ve gotten, over the months, very good at keeping everything in their box.
Work is work and friends are friends and fucking strangers in the bar is mostly harmless and my red phone stays home, during the first two and occasionally, when my nerves are tight or my temper is high—I’ll take the phone in public.
No one, not even Emilie or Taite know about my little part-time gig, and while I don’t think they’d care, exactly, I also didn’t want to tell them.
It was mine, a secret, and not necessarily something I was proud of—I wasn’t ashamed either, but I wanted it to be mine.
So when I step into the RCPD headquarters, I’m not RedQueen. I’m just Vivian Fitzpatrick, the perfectly put together coolly detached girl that River City expects.
“Viv,” the Chief shouts and I huff, but detour into his office, giving him the coy smile that still makes him flush.
I’ve been giving him the same smile since I was in high school and fooling around with his daughter, and he still flushes. It’s adorable, really.
“Miguel is working with our new officer, so I’m pulling Gomez off the front desk to ride with Taite.”
I smirk. “What did Gomez do to piss you off?”
“So you’re taking Chris?” I ask and he nods, giving me apologetic eyes.
“Sorry. Lisa will be in there with you.”
“No worries, Chief. Thanks for the heads up,” I say, grinning and he nods as I duck back out.
I get myself settled in, slipping my headset on and Emilie ducks into a grin at me.
“Have you met him yet?”
“The new guy?” I ask and she nods. “Not yet. You know people don’t like visiting my little hole in the wall.”
True enough. Taite and Emilie only come back here because they’re unreasonably attached to me.
“He’s yummy,” Emilie smirks, all dirty promise.
I arch an eyebrow. “Might I remind you that both Miguel and Cal would be unhappy to see your eye wandering.”
She flushes and I smile, pleased with myself.
“I’m looking for you, idiot,” she snaps, halfhearted.
“I don’t fuck where I work, darling. You and Taite have a lock on that particular market.”
She rolls her eyes and I shoo her away as my radio crackles to life.

Get your hands on REDEEM MY HEART:
Everyone in Cedar Creek, Texas, knows Jack McNight is an arrogant devil. Physically, I get it: he’s tan and fit, with coal-black hair that’s clearly been scorched by hellfire. Oh, and his personality? It burns just as hot.
When I show up on the doorstep of Blue Stone Ranch, I’m run-down and rockin’ my last pair of underwear. I’m hoping for a savior, but instead, I find him.
My opinion of Jack is marred by a dismal first impression, but his opinion of me is tainted even before I arrive. He’s heard I’m a spoiled princess there to take advantage of his goodwill. To him, I’m more trouble than I’m worth.
Our button-pushing banter should get under my skin. His arrogance should be a major turn-off. Problem is, devils are known to offer their own form of temptation.
Every one of his steely glares sends a shiver down my spine.
Every steamy encounter leaves me reeling.
Sure, it could be the Texas heat messing with my head, but there’s no way I’ll survive the summer without silencing him with a kiss and wrestling him out of those Wranglers.
Who knows…going to bed with the devil might just be the salvation I’ve been looking for all along.
