Where will you be when their fireworks begin?

Betsy Madison just got broken up with and is looking to make a fresh declaration of her own independence. Studly firefighter Jamie Banner is looking for a change of pace in Milltown. When they meet, fireworks are guaranteed.

The Fourth of July is my absolutely least favorite thing. An entire day dedicated to thundering explosions and crazy-making lights that drive my clients wild (well, wilder than they already are, given that they’re cats and dogs)? Thanks, but no.

The only thing I like less than the Fourth is my ex, and good riddance to him. I gave him seven years of my life, and in the end he gave me an eyeful of his cheating ass in my bed with some brunette. Said he wasn’t ready for long term, that he needed something explosive. I hope the fact that I had a moving van and team at the house within the hour, moving his shit the hell out of there, was explosive enough for him.

So sure, while I’m not exactly thrilled about this year’s fireworks show — the one that puts my town of Milltown, Colorado, on the map — I’m ready for something new. Something fresh. Something . . . well, something explosive. In a good way.

This year, I’m celebrating the Fourth by making a fresh declaration of independence to bring me back to life after seven years of gathering dust on the arm of a guy who didn’t deserve me — or, hell, even want me.

It’s time to focus on me.

When firefighter Jamie Banner walks into my life, I know exactly what I’d like to do with him. And it’s not exactly ladylike.

Happy 4th of July!

Reader Praise for Poppy Parkes:

“I read the ARC [of Our Happy Holiday] and loved this quick little steamy read.”

“[First Time Player is] a short and sweet romance story that will be especially loved by women who consider themselves to be geeky.”

“[First Time Player is] is a great, quick, second chance story!!”

"[The Light Between Us] was such a lovely read. I absolutely adore this book. It is a comedy of errors that leads to the ultimate whirlwind romance that should never be."

Finding Me and You is a fun, light-hearted romance. It is the 2nd book in a series, but Parkes provides enough background for this book to stand on it's own. The characters are well thought out and the plot line is easy to follow and makes sense. Typically romance is not the genre I'm most attracted to, but Parkes' writing style provides an easy, fun read that kept me intrigued. …This series is a good one to try.”

“Wedding Jitters was a sexy bold and daring short story from Poppy, it left me with a bit of a pout actually, only because I really wanted more of Padme and Chase, see where it leads. They are such a contrast but somehow it fits It was brilliantly written. Looking forward to seeing what Poppy Parkes has in store for us next.
