Yes, Conner Dixon the hero of my April 8th release, Up By Five, was… ahem… blessed with four younger sisters. But he’s not just a big brother. He’s been their father figure since he was seventeen and they lost their father. That means he raised them through the teenage years. AND, he’s had to watch them each fall in love—with his best friends!—over the previous four books in this series!
You’d almost think I didn’t like the guy, huh?
But the truth is, I love him. Conner is one of a kind and I’m thrilled that I finally found the right girl to make him fall. He deserves it 😉
One of the things I like best about Conner is his confidence. He’s cocky and sure of himself and always has a comeback. You’ll see what I mean as you read through the way he compares raising his four sisters to being a paramedic (something else he does very well J)
- Expect the unexpected. Yeah, that one’s self-explanatory.
- If it’s too quiet—look out. In the ER, no one ever mentions that things are “slow” or “quiet”. That’s a sure fire way for all hell to break loose. Same thing goes with the girls. There’s trouble coming if things are “quiet” so we don’t mention it… but I do go investigating.
- There will be tears. Again, pretty self-explanatory. I get cried on at work at least twice a week. Of course, only twice a week with my sisters when they were all living at home would have been a good week.
- Sometimes you’re the hero and sometimes you’re the douchebag in the way of a good time. The people who are in smashed up cars or impaled by various objects love us. The guys who are so drunk they think they should dance on top of the bar like its Coyote Ugly—not so much. Sisters are the same way. And yes, two of mine have tried the Coyote Ugly thing. Twice.
- No matter how long you’ve done it, you’ll never know it all. And if you think you know it all, somebody will be sure to point out just how wrong you are.

Counting on Love, Book 5
Ace paramedic Conner Dixon has sworn to never live with another woman after raising his four younger sisters. Now that they’re all in love, Conner’s ready to retire—from worrying, fixing problems, and cleaning up messes. Yet when fellow paramedic Gabrielle Evans’s apartment burns down and she needs a place to stay, he can’t say no.
Gabby’s penchant for poker and her ability to overhaul a transmission definitely make her different from Conner’s usual women—not to mention a total lack of interest in getting involved with him. With her sights set on medical school, Conner’s crazy mix of family and friends is the last thing Gabby needs right now.
But within forty-eight hours of moving in, Gabby’s up to her eyeballs in a family crisis and Conner’s got the last thing he wanted—a girl and all her stuff, all over his stuff. Still, the more she makes herself at home, the more he thinks that maybe this is exactly where her stuff should be. For good.
Warning: Contains a girl who thinks she wants to be just one of the guys, a guy who happily proves why that won’t work, and a very good reason to buy cinnamon roll icing—you know, other than for use on cinnamon rolls.
