The Young Love Series:

Hero by Design- Amy Carter was finishing her last year of high school, and getting ready for her future in fashion. But competitions, crazy friends, mysterious parents, and a good looking guy kissing her on the dance floor are sure to shake things up just a bit. When she's signed up to participate in a bachelor show to win the heart of the person she loves - how far will she go to make sure that he picks her? (Complete)

Straight for You - My best friend and I shared the same birthday. Every year, we would tell each other what we considered were our 'biggest secrets.' It was our 16 birthday, and I planned on telling him I was madly in love with him, until he told me his secret. "I'm gay." (In-Progress)

Ella, Forget the Cinder - So, I'm an orphan adopted from NYC and taken to England to live with a rich family. He just happened to be the son. I felt an arm tighten around me and looked up to see his blue eyes staring into my brown ones. "Told you one day you'd sleep with me," he smiled. (Planned)

Far Away - Feeling trapped in a place where I didn't belong, that was the motto of my life. I didn't just stick out, I was picked out. I went away for the summer, happy to be rid of a place that continued to suck the life out of me. Now I'm back, but I'm different. The town is still the same. But the one thing I hoped would never change was the one thing that would now remain far away – Him. (Planned)

Breakin' All the Rules - In Texas, nothing is bigger than high school football. My father, he was a champion and wanted a son to follow in his legacy. Instead, he got me. Madeline Hardy. But just because I was a girl didn't mean I was going to give up that easily. After all, it's about time someone showed these sexist old men that girls can play football! Guess I forgot to count love in as part of my plan. (Planned)
