Established author and black dragon shifter, Cayden Rienhardt, has watched over the beautiful and very human, Nyna Carter, most of her life. But he never entertained the idea of more until recently. When an ex-lover from Nyna’s past comes back to Woodland Creek and makes it clear she plans to spend her life with Nyna, Cayden’s dragon forces him to break his silence and make a move to cast his magical web.

Not only is there a rift between her and Nyna, there’s a very sexy dragon shifter complicating matters.

When Kara reveals that someone close to Nyna is responsible for her parents’ murders, her love life becomes secondary to the investigation. She is determined to find out the truth. Even if it means that her life will change forever.

Nyna flipped the lights on as she entered Carter’s Books and Gifts then turned the neon Open sign on. The smell of books and incense lingered in the air, soothing. She hummed softly as she made her way to the back of the store where her office was. After locking her purse up, she selected a playlist from her computer and pressed play. The quiet store filled with soft coffee house music.
The bookstore was her grandmother’s baby. Since Nyna loved hanging out here anytime she visited, she’d decided to work here after graduation, not caring that it was a forty-five-minute drive from Louisville. Grams had taught her everything there was to know about the specialty gifts and books she carried. As a college graduation gift, Grams had signed ownership over to Nyna.
With a heavy heart, Nyna sighed at the memory of her grandmother. The older woman had passed away of natural causes about three years ago. Then thoughts of her parents settled in, bringing a few tears. God, she missed them. Sadness and grief had turned into anger some time ago. She was pissed that the police didn’t care enough to do more to find the killer. The bastard was still out there. Somewhere.
The door chimed, drawing her attention. A smile tugged at her lips at the sight of her uncle, Henry Carter. “Good morning. When did you get back in town?”
His brown gaze met hers. He looked tired and a little annoyed, but he smiled at her. “I just got in and thought to stop by to see my favorite niece.”
She rolled her eyes. “Considering I’m your only one...”
“So true.” He glanced around, his brows dipping. “The place hasn’t changed much.”
With a sigh, she turned and picked up one of the boxes that had been delivered the day before and opened it. Inside, wrapped tightly with bubble wrap, were the glass figurines she’d ordered. They would go nicely in the new case she’d bought last month at the antique auction.
“I guess not much changed in the last couple of months.” She tried to keep the sarcasm out of her tone but failed. Even though she loved her uncle, he could be…well, a little judgmental at times. As well as negative. She could only handle him in small doses because he always left a heaviness behind, and his time was about up.
Her cell rang. She pulled it out of her pocket and smiled shyly at the number. Cayden Reinhardt. Turning her back to her uncle, she answered. “Hello.”
“Hi, beautiful.”
His deep, husky voice sent hot need racing through her. She’d never been the type to date older men, but Cayden was different. Not that they were dating. Hell, he’d never even asked her out. There was the occasional call. And he’d come by the store with his laptop and sit in the corner to write. They’d gotten to know each other a bit, even flirted and teased each other. But there was so much more to know. So much more she wanted to know. Like, why was a man so sexy still single? “To what do I owe this pleasant surprise?”
But it didn’t hurt to flirt when the opportunity arose.
“Do you have lunch plans?”
Her heart froze in mid-beat before thumpthumping in rapid succession. “Um, no.”
Was he actually asking her out?
“Good. I’ll be there at noon.” He hung up, not giving her a chance to reply. But that was Cayden. A man of few words.
She shoved her phone back in her pocket and tried to slow the rush of blood to her head as she turned to face her uncle once more. Henry glared at her with a raised brow. “Who was that?”
“Cayden.” Turning back to the box of glass miniatures, she picked it up and carried it to the display case by the door. Please leave. She couldn’t shake the feeling that Henry was up to something, or wanted something and just wasn’t going to tell her what. It was no secret that he and Cayden didn’t get along.
“Isn’t he too old for you? He’s a little older than your father would be if he were still alive.”
The judgment in her uncle’s tone prodded the anger she carried for the heartless bastard who’d killed her parents and she snapped. She jerked around and pinned him with a narrowed-eye glare. “Cayden is only thirty-nine. Dad would have turned forty-five in a week.” Her lip trembled, and her eyes burned as tears threatened to form. “I think you need to leave so I can get back to work. Thank you for stopping by.”
A tic formed in his jaw a moment before he pivoted on his heels and walked out of the store. Nyna blew out a breath. Maybe she was being too sensitive. With her dad’s birthday in a few days, she didn’t feel like being around family. Too many memories, too many feelings she didn’t want to deal with.
Unwrapping the figurines, she carefully placed them in the case. Each one was a different animal with a few fairies thrown in. She would have to price them much higher than her other items, and she hoped she hadn’t made a bad business choice. The real test wouldn’t come until the tourists arrived in the spring.
She stepped back to admire the display. Despite her uncle’s grumpy attitude, she was in a fabulous mood. After all, Cayden was taking her to lunch.

The Granny Series Box Set 1
Available only on Kindle from November 15, 2015 – January 15, 2016

Books 1-3 of the bestselling Granny Series by USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle and Amazon bestselling author Kelsey Browning available as a box set for the first time! 

Honey, these are not your momma’s grannies… 

When Lillian Summer Fairview’s husband up and dies on her, it leaves the last living member of the most prestigious family in Summer Shoals, Georgia, in a hot mess. While Lil was busy being a proper Southern lady, Harlan squandered dang near the whole family fortune on lottery tickets. To keep her financial skeletons in the closet and give him a decent burial, Lil made a deal that has now landed her in prison. 

Desperate to keep her troubles a secret and the family estate from falling down while she pays her debt to society, Lil entrusts Summer Haven’s care to her best friend, Maggie, who recruits two more over-fifty ladies to live at Summer Haven and help keep it afloat. 

But when Maggie discovers that Lil’s restitution is ten times the amount she “borrowed” from the federal government, she’s convinced Lil has taken the fall for someone else’s crime. And these gals will use every trick in their little-old-lady bags to prove it. 


Lillian Summer Fairview is settling right nice into the federal pen. She’s even making peace with Big Martha, the toughest broad on the cellblock. 

After hearing Lil’s granny friends recently took down a swindler, Big Martha asks Lil for a favor. Her niece has fallen for a guy she met online, and Martha’s convinced Mr. Too-Good-To-Be-True is up to no good. All Lil’s friends have to do is a little look-see on the guy and report back. But when they poke around, they find the guy doesn’t really exist, and that triggers a wild ride through the world of online dating. 

Meanwhile, a cantankerous septic system on Lil’s family estate in Summer Shoals, GA has the grannies fit to be tied. If Summer Haven isn’t in shipshape before the historic society’s inspection, they’ll be in deep you-know-what. 
Big Martha sweetens the deal by promising to fix what ails Summer Haven if the grannies can find the elusive Romeo. 

Will the grannies track him down before the inspection, or will they find themselves in trouble right up to their granny panties? 


When a tree topples over onto Miss Lillian’s prized 1948 Tucker Torpedo, the grannies are once again scrambling for money and keeping Lil in the dark. Lucky for them, they have their choice of two cases, but which to take—a suspected art forgery or mysteriously disappearing trash from the county landfill? 

As usual, things aren’t exactly as they first seem, and the grannies soon find themselves going undercover and dumpster diving to track down both bad guys. And now that Lil has scored an unexpected early release from prison, the grannies have more at stake than ever. 

Will they find the culprits in time to repair the Tucker before Lil gets home, or will she arrive and unravel their lies?

Welcome to Thistle Bend! Perfect for fans of Susan Mallery, this charming series debut introduces a small town where old secrets are revealed—and wounded hearts are opened to new love.

A year after being laid off from the Smithsonian, Lindsey Simms says yes to a job offer as curator of a heritage museum in Thistle Bend, Colorado (population 1,519). It could be worse—and it is. Because the new museum has escalated a dispute between the Karlssons, Lindsey’s relatives, and the Crenshaws, a blood feud which goes way back to a land deal that changed the fortunes of both families. Trying to stay objective, Lindsey can’t tell anyone about her conflict of interest—especially not the ruggedly handsome handyman fixing up her cabin, who seems to be keeping secrets of his own.

Although he’s the executive director of the family trust and one of Colorado’s most eligible bachelors, Carden Crenshaw prefers getting his hands dirty in town and on his sprawling ranch. Staying busy has given him an excuse not to risk heartbreak, but getting to know the beautiful “museum lady” makes him reconsider. Little does he know, the heat between them will only add fuel to the fire—unless this unlikely couple can prove they’re lovers, not fighters.

Thistle Bend #1
Review copy provided by publisher

I loved Lindsey Simms from the moment she appeared on the page. She was such a strong character; especially driving across country to start a new job in an area she had never even visited before. I liked that she wanted to get her career started back up by setting up the Thistle Bend Heritage Museum and her long-term plans were to return to D.C. I didn't love she was keeping her family connections to the Karlssons a secret, but totally understood based on the dynamics between the Karlssons and the Crenshaws.

Carden Crenshaw is one of the most eligible bachelors in Thistle Bend and I loved how Lindsey and Carden met for the first time. Nothing like the head of the Crenshaw family trust being mistaken for a handyman. Carden had been burned in the past in a relationship and he was super hesitant to open himself up to anyone. I loved that Lindsey totally worked her way into his life and his heart so quickly.

I really loved Lindsey and Carden as a couple. They had amazing chemistry and it was so obvious from the moment they first met. I loved how quickly they connected and how many shared interest they had. I knew the fact they were basically each on the other side of Thistle Bend's version of the Hatfields and the McCoy's, yet I still wanted them to find a way to learn the truth of what really happened between their families and make it work as a couple. I absolutely loved the resolution to the truth about the fight between the families. It totally gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling and was so steeped in romance. Carden and Lindsey had both sweet and sexy moments together and I loved watching them work through their issues to make their relationship work.

I also loved both the town of Thistle Bend and all the different secondary characters in Should've Said No. I love when a small town becomes a character in itself with a book, and also love when the secondary characters grab me and I want to know more about them and see them in future books. I have to say the Montgomery sisters were 2 of my favorite characters in the book and I hope we see them again in future books.

I absolutely adored Should've Said No. I'm a big fan of books in a series and I thought the Thistle Bend series got off to a great start with Should've Said No.
