baby project_finalThe Baby Project

There is only one reason she needs a man – for a single, viable sperm cell.

Badass biker chick Nicole Judge is caught off guard by the unexpectedly powerful maternal instincts that pour through her when she holds her friend’s newborn. She suddenly wants a baby of her own. But Nicole hates men. Even her success working for a very masculine boss in his male-dominated construction company can’t wipe away her painful early experiences with the gender. Men are poison. But maybe there’s another way…

Ryan Riordan is pleased with his life. His home construction business is thriving, and he’s blissfully single again after his second failed marriage. Nothing is missing. Then his extremely efficient office manager admits she’s trying to get pregnant using an anonymous sperm donor. Nicole? The leather-loving, motorcycle-riding office terror is doing anything so feminine as having a baby? Despite himself, Ryan starts viewing Nicole in a whole new light, a womanly light. And he remembers his own dead dream of having a family.

But would donating sperm for Nicole’s baby project be enough to scratch that itch? Ryan is pretty sure he wants more than nominal fatherhood. And as he grows closer to Nicole, he realizes he wants more from her than an incubator for his child. But can he convince her not all men are poison? For that matter, can he convince himself to try marriage again – for the third time?

Marriage by Mistake

He woke up to find two days of his life completely gone.

Workaholic Boston blueblood Dean has made it his life’s goal to be the opposite of his irresponsible, womanizing father.

But Dean discovers that while in a hypnotic trance he’d acted exactly like his father, travelling to Las Vegas where he’d wooed and wed some sexy, airhead dancer.

Now Kelly may be sexy, but she’s no airhead. She knows the cold and puritanical man who claims to be her husband is not the man she’d married. But she suspects the warm and tender man she does love is buried somewhere deep inside. And she’s determined to find him…

MARRIAGE BY MISTAKE is a light-hearted and warm story, with a generous splash of humor.

    • I really enjoyed your book marriage by mistake. I hope you do a follow on from this book. It would be nice to know the out come of Dean and Kelly’s marriage and also if Troy marries. Thank you for a very good book.

      • Thank you so much for writing. It means a lot to hear you enjoyed the book. Of course Dean and Kelly live happily ever after, and I would be very surprised if Troy and Felicia didn’t get married, too. It’s difficult for me to imagine anything else!

    • HI I enjoyed reading Good Neighbors it very a very touching . Would love to read the other ones of this series how can i do that .

  1. Absolutely LOVE these books, Alyssa! I’m picky, too, but I fell in love with Marriage by Mistake and purchased The Heart Heist today and read it straight through as well. Keep them coming, I’ll keep reading them!

  2. wow! your style of writing is incredible!. I was hooked until the very end! You made the characters so real…I Missed two assignment deadlines rather than put the iPad down! Hehe…

Great work, Alyssa! Definitely will put you on my “Authors Recommended List” I share with my book buddies!

  10. Is there a sequel to Marriage by Mistake? Soooo good! I want to see babies, more romance and how much of a wonderful boy Robby turns out to be! Oh yea, I can’t forget… When will Felicia & Troy tie the knot???

    • So glad you enjoyed Marriage by Mistake. There is no sequel, sorry to say. I figured we all know Felicia and Troy will stick together, though who knows when they’ll make it official? Your guess is as good as mine! Thanks for writing.

  11. Marriage By Mistake was no mistake. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. On the surface the plot may seem a bit unrealistic, but these characters are very real and intriguing. I have followed this book up with The Heart Heist ( which I think would make a great movie!) , Asking For It, and Love and the Millionairess. Looking forward to your next book !!

    My only feedback is – ‘the cover picture gave me a negative feeling about the book… I put this book off from reading for long time just because of tht’. A little more care on this part and it would just be gr8 coz the content is gr8 😀

  15. I loved the book!! Constantly hdad me on the edge, I was rooting for them. I also loved the budding romance between felicia and troy. Thank you!

  16. Marriage By Mistake was deliciously marvelous. I couldn’t stop reading until I knew what was going to happen next. It was as if I was at the movies watching it all unfold.

    • Terry, thanks so much for writing and I’m very glad you’ve enjoyed reading my books. The Fiancee Fiasco is in final edits right now and I hope to get it up in the next 2-4 weeks. I do not actually write very fast, I’m afraid. All of the books you have read were produced over a number of years.

  17. Alyssa, I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Fiancé Fiasco. I also read an excerpt from a book entitled That’ll Be The Day, is that something we can expect to see in the near future. Keep em coming.

    • Hello Terry. Thank you so much for writing! You’re my first reaction to The Fiancée Fiasco so I’m thrilled that you liked it. In answer to your question, I do intend to publish That’ll Be the Day, but it may not be for about a year. Glad the excerpt got your interest. It was nice of you to write. Your post really made my day!

  18. Alyssa, I’ve written before but I want to say I still love, love your books!! I’m already anxious to read your next one!! Keep them coming!!

  19. I finished readers “If I Loved You” and really liked it. It was a great book . I can’t wait for “That’ll Be the Day” to be released. Do you have a date of when it will be coming out?

  20. Alyssa,

    I tried to take it easy and not finish “That’ll Be The Day” so quickly without success. I read it in a couple of evenings. The bad thing about that is I have to wait for your next book to be released. I enjoyed it though. Thanks and keep up the good work. Terry

    • LOL, Terry! I’m glad you enjoyed the book. I will try to get the next one published quickly, but I’m not actually a very fast writer. I will appreciate your patience and thanks for writing!

  21. Hi, Alyssa. I read your new book A Perfect Knave and it was excellent as are your others. I can hardly wait for another. Keep me coming. Terry

    • Thank you so much for writing, Terry. I’m very happy you enjoyed the book. I enjoyed writing it! Your comments and emails are much appreciated. Thank you again for letting me know your thoughts.

  22. a great read thank you for not making Felicia ugly or spiteful in your book so nice to see relationships work themselves out without destroying someone else’s in the process of getting to a happy ending!!!!!!!!

  23. I was shocked at the brilliant gem hidden beneath this God awful cover. A skilled writer gives us a sweet love story between two likeable characters in an original plot yet somehow made new.

    Alyssa I beg you please change this cover. This story deserves a wide spread audience and is being held back in such a egregious manner.

  24. Finally, a romance story that challenged me to see if I could (accurately) guess what would happen next. I didn’t! Such depth of knowledge in terms of human interaction, and believability in the various emotional scenes was refreshing! I look forward to reading more of your novels.

  25. 1st time reading 1 of you books, am hooked now. Love Marriage by Mistake. Love books, have been a reader of books since I learned to read, many years ago, will be 82 next month. Anxious to read more of your books, love to find a new author.

  26. It’s very lovely story and well written .. very heart touching .. I just loved this book .. thanku mam for this awesome book
