"I owe a loan shark, and I need my life more than I need this apartment."

Erin Huss, author of "The Apartment Manager" series (For Rent, For Hire, Can't Pay My Rent), is back with Still Can't Pay My Rent, another book of hilarious excuses tenants have actually given for not paying the rent.

Why can't you pay the rent… again?

The monthly question many apartment managers find themselves asking at least a handful of tenants. In this hilarious sequel, Cambria Clyne, the sassy heroine of For Rent, is presented with 31 more real-life excuses for not paying the rent. Everything from "my off-shore investment account is frozen by the alien lizard people" to "I need it for Vegas this weekend" is offered as a so-called reasonable attempt to get out of forking over the cold hard cash they agreed to pay when they signed multiple pages of the lease.

Now the question is: How will Cambria get them all to pay up once again?

Perfect Mishap, a hilarious and honest British mom's madcap adventures in suburbia, is on sale for $0.99 on Amazon! (Sale applies to the U.K. as well.)

Dottie Harris has a knack for stumbling into chaotic situations, gin & tonic in hand. When Dottie and Henry Harris move to their new house, Dottie's only desire is to make friends in the neighbourhood. But Dottie, just home from delivering her third child, is struggling to adjust to village life. Recently promoted Henry travels a lot, and the neighbours aren't very welcoming (although that could be because when Dottie first met them, she had dyed her children green).

So when Dottie accidentally hears her neighbours' conversations over her baby monitor, she can't help but use the sneaky information in her quest to build new friendships.

Of course, eavesdropping never ends well, and when Dottie discovers that two of her neighbours are having an affair, she's horrified. Worse still, the locals are convinced she's the one who's doing the cheating. It's up to Dottie to clear her name and uncover (and expose) the real cheat—in her signature haphazard way!

A humorous blend between chick lit and cozy mystery, this funny novel will have you laughing along with gin-drinking amateur sleuth Dottie!

The quest for a stolen perfume formula awakens passion, rivalry and family secrets in the fragrant flower fields of the South of France... 

Perfumer Zoe Flore travels to Grasse, perfume capital of the world, to collect a formula: her inheritance from the family she never knew existed. The scent matches the one worn by her mother, who passed away when Zoe was a teenager. Zoe, competing to create a new fragrance for prestigious designer Cherone, believes this scent could win the contract—and lead her to the reason her mother fled Grasse for New York City. Before Zoe can discover the truth, the formula is stolen. Philippe Chevrefeuille, the enigmatic competitor who makes her heart race, is the only one who can help her find it. But Zoe is in no mood for romance, or at least that’s what she tries telling herself. 

Philippe knows that winning the Cherone fragrance contract is the way out of his mid-level perfumery job. And he has the ambition and ego to make it happen. Until Zoe enters the picture. In an instant, he’s under her spell and losing grip on his own creativity. If Philippe hopes to win, he must keep Zoe from finding the missing formula. But can he betray his own heart? 

The pursuit transforms into a journey of self-discovery as each struggles to understand the complexities of love, the force of pride and the meaning of family.

Friendship, loss… and a tantalizing trip to Paris in this highly praised debut novel! 

Amy and Kat had a plan: A secret trip to Paris. Even Amy's husband wouldn't know about it. But when Amy loses Kat, the "friend of her heart," to cancer, she knows the plan, too, has disappeared forever. Or has it? 

Guided by memories of her friend and dissatisfaction with her own calorie-counting life in Phoenix, Amy sneaks off to Paris while her husband is away on a business trip. Once there, she's robbed, stalked, arrested and kidnapped (almost). Worse, she finds that her numerous issues have come right along with her. 

Through her adventures, laced with luscious descriptions of food and Paris, Amy learns that often in life, love and friendship, nothing is exactly as it seems. Grab a croissant and settle in for a decidedly non-touristy trip to the City of Light.

“Cooking for nineteen people will be a cinch!” Ever-optimistic Dottie Harris is preparing for the biggest and best Christmas celebration ever, and nothing—not even unexpected guests or running out of gin—will get her down. 

But as always, things don't run smoothly for Dottie, and it's not long before her two energetic children, hapless husband and a nasty stomach bug wreak havoc on her carefully planned spreadsheets. 

Can Dottie throw the perfect family Christmas (without so much as a swig of gin to help her through) or will preparing for the festivities get the best of her? One thing's for sure: This will be a Christmas to remember!

Nashville by Heart by award-winning author Tina Ann Forkner is now available in paperback and ebook!

A fairy tale romance, Nashville style! A small town girl, a chance at stardom… or a chance at love. Does she have to choose? 

Small town girl Gillian Heart moved to Nashville to get a record deal—not end up on some playboy's arm. That's why she tells herself she can't get too personal with sexy music agent, Will Adams. Will makes her heart flutter, but he's also broken plenty of hearts in this city. 

Will thinks Gillian has what it takes to make it in Nashville, but he can't help being wildly attracted to her in a way that has little to do with music. She inspires him to change his ways, but he's still wary about mixing business with pleasure. He did that once before and got burned. 

But neither Will nor Gillian can deny the spark between them. As things heat up, Gillian dares to imagine a life with Will—even though she knows he's not a forever kind of guy. And then Will makes a move—bringing back memories of the father who abandoned her—that makes her question him and her whole life in Nashville. 

Can Gillian get over the disappointments of the past and find her place in Nashville, and with Will?
