[New Book Announcement] THE SECOND WE MET!


I know, I know! From the messages, emails and smoke signals, you’re ready for Nix’s story. I didn’t want you to think I’d be leaving you hanging, so I’m so happy to announce that The Second We Met will be coming to you this fall!

Nix is a lock for the first-round draft pick. But after a little run in with the law, he’s on a spring break reputation rehab tour, which lands him smack in the center of a community service project. Hammer a few nails, take a few pics, no big deal.

Except his new project coordinator is the pink haired menace from across the street and the reason he’s in this mess to begin with. 

What’s the worst that could happen? Other than a trip to the ER…

Sparks, hammers and nails fly as these two sweat it out for charity and find there's so much more to each of them than meets the eye. 

Official release date, cover and blurb to come!


[New Book Announcement] THE PERFECT FIRST!

OHHH YES! I’ve got a very special announcement! The Perfect First is coming! This is the friends to lovers, virgin + football star romance you’ll need this spring.

Persephone Alexander. Math genius. Lover of blazers. The only girl I know who can make Heidi braids look sexy as hell. And she’s on a mission. Lose her virginity by the end of the semester.

Pump the brakes, what? I walked in on her interview session for potential candidates (who even does that?) and saw straight through her brave front. She’s got a list of Firsts to accomplish like she’s only got months to live and I’ve decided to be her guide. Someone’s got to keep her out of trouble. I have one rule, no sex. We even shook on it.

Someone like her doesn’t need someone like me and my massive...baggage for her first time.

Drinking at a bar. Check.
Partying all night. Double check.
Skinny dipping. Triple check.

I’m the first to bend the rules. One electrifying kiss changes everything and suddenly I don’t want to be her first, I want to be her only. But her plan was written before I came onto the scene and now I’m determined to get her to re-write her future with me.

Official release date, cover and blurb to come!

[New Book Announcement!] Reckless King is coming!

Title: Reckless King

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: August 23, 2018




An irresistibly steamy college sports romance.


I’m Heath Taylor. Laid back. Easy going. Fastest guy on two skates and chill to a fault. Until Kara.


Three nights together and I’m done for. Her laugh, her smile, the way my hand curves around her waist. She’s the one. Not a doubt in my mind...until I walk into my last class of the semester.


Kara, the woman of my dreams, is my new instructor. My hockey season and her career prospects are on the line. One false move--if anyone finds out--we’re both sunk.


On the ice I’m a beast that can’t be stopped, but thoughts of her are throwing me off my game. My fingers itch to feel her in my arms again. But risking everything could ruin what we’ve worked so hard for.


Sometimes life has a way of changing the best laid plans. And sometimes you can’t stay away no matter the promises you make.


Life doesn’t play fair, but neither do I…
