He’s rich. He’s powerful. He’s gorgeous. And he’s my boss…

Men like Rafe McCarthy never change.

Privileged playboys who party hard and date even harder–if you can call that revolving door of actresses and models “dating.” It’s my job to wake him up, sober him up, and send him into his meetings at the family pharmaceutical corporation more or less on time.

Meanwhile, I’m spending every cent and spare second taking care of my family. It’s probably because I’m so distracted that I accidentally swap our phones–and get notified of an appointment I most definitely did not make for him. Turns out Rafe has been keeping a few secrets beneath that artfully disheveled suit… like a heart of gold.

Just when I thought he couldn’t get any hotter.

Obviously I can’t be held responsible for my actions after that. Not for making out with him in my kitchen. Or for insisting he include me in his secret mission. Or for making out with him again. And all that led to. Or for…

Okay, I definitely know better than to fall for my boss. Oops.

Come on ER Teaser 1

“You showed more vulnerability—more passion—in thirty seconds than I can remember seeing in anybody else in thirty years.”

 I swallow, lick my lips. I track my gaze down to his mouth. This is insane. This is stupid. This is the worst idea of all time. 

I’m fresh out of good ideas, though.

 “I’m not sure about passion,” I say, wondering vaguely if that was English. “I mean, I think I could show more.”

 Yes. I’m doing this, consequences be damned. Rafe grins, the electricity in his gaze singing in my blood. 

“I’m counting on it,” he growls, and kisses me. I give in at once, my arms wrapped tight around his neck. For a moment we’re locked together, tasting and exploring each other with our mouths, our lips, our tongues. I briefly take his bottom lip between my teeth, which makes him groan. Rafe cradles my head and kisses me deeper, his hand sliding down my back to cup my ass. Moaning, I press against him, feeling the hard, throbbing heat of an erection through his pants. 

“Yes?” he whispers, breaking off the kiss once. His entire body vibrates with need. This’d be the point of no return. Watch me skip past that point, flipping it the bird as I plunge off the sexiest cliff of all time.

 “Yes.” I barely get the word out before his mouth seals over mine again. He lifts me up, knocking the stool over as he does. I lock my legs around his waist as he carries me backwards into the living room. For a hundred heartbeats, I’m lost and drowning in him. Gently, he sprawls me on my back, the couch soft beneath me. Rafe presses down on me, and I run my hands through his hair as he tastes me again, kissing along my chin and down my neck. He plucks at the front of my sweatshirt, then lifts me up by the waist. In seconds, my sweatshirt is off, and my tee shirt follows. I’m sitting here in my bra, chest heaving as I gape at my boss. Meanwhile, he’s breathing just as hard as his gaze takes me in. His hands circle my waist, then trail up to cup my breasts.

 I have never been this wet before in my life. Gasping, I lie back down as he strokes me through the thin lace of my bra. Rafe’s mouth closes over my nipple, sucking me through the fabric. Moaning, I arch my back as he undoes the button of my jeans, as he starts to pull them off. Soon I’m in only a bra and panties, and he’s, unfairly, still fully dressed.

 “Let’s make it more equitable,” I murmur, tugging at his shirt. He grins, his teeth white. 

“Any woman who uses the word equitable during sex is the perfect woman.”

 I’m not sure how perfect I am when his shirt comes off and I’m face to face, or chest, or something, with an actual human Adonis. Pretty sure I start drooling at that point. Every line of his body is perfection, every toned and sculpted divot of his chest something of beauty. I can’t help myself and skim my hands along the iron-and-silk lines of his arms, his chest. I trail my fingertips down his (absolutely perfect) abs and find the thin, dark line of hair that tucks below his belt and all the way to— 

I think we’re both calling out sick from work. This is going to take all day, and I can’t wait.

Wrapped Up in Christmas

Published: October 2019

A USA TODAY Bestseller!

A gift of warmth to heal two hearts…

Sarah Smith in Pine Hill, Kentucky has had her heart broken in the past. She pours herself into her work at church and into special projects—like making a quilt for a wounded warrior.

Bodie Lewis is lost. All he’s ever wanted was his career as an Army Ranger, but he was injured in an explosion that killed his brothers in arms. In the hospital, he receives a handmade quilt. Later, he sets out on his final mission: to find and thank its maker.

Bodie expected Sarah to be an elderly lady, not a lovely young woman. When she mistakes him for a handyman, he doesn’t immediately set her straight. Instead, he sets about repairing the home she’s turning into a bed and breakfast. Sarah’s presence and the spirit of the small town bring Bodie something he thought he’d left far behind on the battlefield: hope.

This heartwarming sweet romance includes a free quilt pattern from the Quilts of Valor Foundation and a new original Hallmark recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Bread.

by C.L. Gaber
Genre: YA Fantasy/Romance
Release Date: January 14th 2020

Four beautiful girls. Quadruplets. They are not identical.
But each is named Claire.
Claire V is Clairvoyant—clear seeing with visions of the future.
Claire S is Clairsentient—clear feeling as she embraces another’s pain.
Claire A is Clairaudient—clear hearing to tap into the spirit world.
Claire C is Claircognizant—clear knowing with 100% accuracy.

Born in 1911, they first died together in 1928 at age seventeen. Two months later, they were reborn. And reborn. THE CLAIRES only live to seventeen and then they’re violently murdered. Somewhere in the world, a woman finds out she’s pregnant with quads. The Claires return to a new family as they try to break a curse that guarantees they die young.

It’s current-day Los Angeles, and once again, their seventeenth birthday is looming. Can they save themselves, clean up the streets in the name of penance, and crash their own prom?

The Claires is the first novel spin-off of the best-selling Ascenders Book Saga.

Excerpt :

“THE FOUR CLAIRES, as they would come to be known, should never have been known at all. Nonidentical quadruples, they were often singularly described by a word that rhymes with witch. Clearly, there were hexing strands in their DNA, but what made them noteworthy—verging on extraordinary—was the fact that each was born with a distinct and separate clair force or power. This caused underground governments, not to mention world powers, to act with great haste. 

        Human rules always dictate that what can’t be understood must be destroyed.

Before they were born, the girls were given an expiration date.

The Allotment of Life certificate confirmed that all Claire children will be put to a most wretched and painful death (just to be sure) on their seventeenth birthday.

        After the cake.

        But before the presents. Which made sound and wise sense.

        One should not carry needless “things” into the afterlife.

        Baggage was baggage—alive or dead.”
