About Bellini's Mimosa
Immerse yourself in a contemporary romance novel that will take you on a journey from Italy’s most enchanting cities to picturesque Martha's Vineyard.
Mimi Albizia is at the end of an energizing six-month interlude in Verona, Italy. Before returning to Boston to face the cause of her unjust break, she spends a final weekend in Venice, soaking up the mystery and romance suffusing its labyrinth of narrow streets and canals.
But after an intriguing encounter with a sexy-as-hell stranger, she takes home more than just a lovely memory—namely, a yearning she can’t satisfy.
Jake Bellini is in no rush to accept his predestined position at his family’s resort hotel on Martha’s Vineyard—or to collect dust in a stuffy law office. At thirty-three, he prefers life at his uncle’s Tuscan vineyard, where he pursues his love for winemaking and keeps his relationships casual…
…until meeting Mimi creates new longings, and he realizes life is about much more than grapes and breathtaking sunsets.
BELLINI'S MIMOSA is a heartwarming tale about love, family values, and the courage to pursue your dreams. Will Mimi and Jake find a way to overcome the distance between the weathered coasts of New England and the rolling hills of Tuscany to build their life together?

Twists and turns, secrets and surprises, humor and of course passion!
Contemporary romance heats up Martha's Vineyard in PALOMA IN A PICKLE: A story of shattered dreams and thriving in the face of challenges.
Losing her artisan café hurt Paloma Schlemmer more than breaking up with any boyfriend ever did. While setting new goals and planning out her future, she accepts a temporary job at a friend’s catering business on Martha’s Vineyard.
Alas, her pal's sexy, cool-as-mint brother soon shakes up more than her focus on work, and when ignoring her feelings doesn’t work quite so well anymore, Paloma finds herself not just in a pickle, but knee-deep in an entire dill barrel.
Matt Bellini steels himself for another busy season at his family’s resort hotel—with neither the time nor the desire for serious dating. Until his sister’s new catering manager becomes a totally-unasked-for distraction.
The more Matt is determined to push aside his unsettling longings, the more Paloma sneaks under his skin like no other woman. And when one misunderstanding breaks their fragile bond, Matt is at a total loss about how to fix it.
PALOMA IN A PICKLE is a heartwarming story of resilience and taking chances that will leave readers rooting for Paloma and Matt. Will they find the courage to take the plunge and navigate the currents of love, or will their insecurities keep them apart?
About Nicki Got Spunk
Happily-ever-after is so overrated...
Ditching her louse of a fiancé was the best thing Nicki Albizia ever did—although he might have a slightly different opinion about it.
When Raymond III continues to turn up in Nicki’s life like a bad penny, visiting her sister on dreamy Martha’s Vineyard seems the best thing to do. Out of sight, out of mind—Nicki is so done with “numbered” guys!
Luckily, the hunk who crosses Nicki’s path is really down to earth—and perfect for some unconditional summer fun.
Parker Haynes III joined the Army to get as far away from his family’s stifling expectations as his Black Hawk could take him—and he wouldn’t change it for anything!
Until his ex-girlfriend drops a wiggly bundle in pink in his arms, and Parker has no choice but to reroute his life and turn to his family for help—which comes uncomfortably close to failing a mission.
However, his plan to treat the situation like any assignment—go in, deal with it, get the heck out—goes awry when he falls head over heels for Nicki.
NICKI GOT SPUNK is a touching story about overcoming hurdles and moving forward while staying true to oneself…and finding true love when you least expect it.
