Starting over…again

It seems a lifetime ago that Brett Ackerman wanted to share his life with Ella Wales. He really believed he could put his abusive family history behind him…until he realized it would always be part of him. Then he pushed her away. Hard.

Now Ella's back as part of the High Risk Team at The Lemonade Stand, the unique women's shelter Brett founded. And she needs his help with a family crisis. But even now, Brett can't admit he still loves her. Until one night of passion with Ella turns Brett into the one thing he fears the most—a father.

Guest Post
The First Five Books

The Good Father is book six in my Where Secrets Are Safe series.  The series revolves around a unique women’s shelter, The Lemonade Stand, where secrets are safe.  One thing I’ve learned about life and people is that everyone, everywhere has secrets.  Things they know, or have discovered, or thought, that they don’t tell anyone else.  As I continue to write stories for this series, I’m finding out about all kinds of secrets that people keep – all kinds of people in all walks of life with all kinds of secrets.
The books revolving around The Lemonade Stand are not all interrelated.  Many of them don’t even feature characters who lived and breathed in previous books.  The books are connected by a place.  The Lemonade Stand.  The series started out with ideas for three books.  I am currently working on an eighth one and number nine is on its way, too.  So for anyone who is new to the series, and for those of you who want a reminder, I’ll give you a one liner look at the first five books.
Wife By Design – The resident nurse at The Lemonade Stand who is raising her three year old daughter on her own and acting as unofficial guardian to a mentally challenged resident, is suddenly face to face with the man she’d had the hots for back when she was married.
Once A Family – A RITA FINALIST!  A fifteen year old girl shows up at The Lemonade Stand claiming that her guardian, her oldest brother, is abusing her, but he claims that it’s someone else and insists on bringing her home.
Husband By Choice – A woman who escaped an abusive, detective ex-husband, abandons the love of her life and their young son when the ex suddenly shows up and threatens their safety. 
Child By Chance – A stripper who gave up her son when she was sixteen is back in town with a college degree, a clean life, and finds out that the son she gave up, the son no one knows she mothered, is heading for serious trouble.
Mother By Fate – A counselor at The Lemonade Stand and a bounty hunter are both searching for the same woman, but with very different beliefs about her, and for very different reasons.
The Good Father is pivotal to all of these books for one reason.  Brett Ackerman is the Stand’s founder.  And no one knows it.  Or him.
Please join me at The Lemonade Stand.  Your secrets are safe here…
