Nice guys don’t always finish last – at least once they pull their heads of their… well, you know.
Betrayed doesn’t begin to describe what Jamie McCullough feels when he discovers the woman who declined his marriage proposal has accepted another's - his own brother's!
Hurt and angry, Jamie finds himself in the warm and welcoming cafe of Amy’s Book Shoppe. In addition to a damn good cup of coffee, Amy also serves up a friendly smile and some much-needed sympathy.
Amy’s been attracted to Jamie’s All-American good looks and gentlemanly demeanor since the first time she laid eyes on him. She’s all for lending a sympathetic ear from the friend zone, but Amy refuses to be a rebound. She admits she wants more --- when and if he’s ready.
After a bit of soul-searching (and some hilarious advice from a trio of middle-aged romance authors), Jamie finally realizes that sometimes, those lemons life gives you can make some pretty sweet lemonade.

Behind the book
When I originally wrote the Connelly Cousins trilogy, I hadn’t planned to give Jamie McCullough his own story. His character was the means to an end - namely the catalyst to bring Celina and Kyle together. Once I had the books edited, however, Jamie ended up with more dimensions than simply a fringe character. He went from being fall guy to full-fledged someone, and I liked him a lot more.
Readers liked him, too, and I began hearing cries of “What happens to Jamie?” and “Doesn’t he get his happily ever after?” I began to think that maybe Jamie did deserve his happy ending, especially after everything I put him through.
So here you have it: Jamie’s story. It originally appeared in the back of Michael’s book as a bonus read. It’s pretty short, but hopefully it will satisfy readers who want him to find love too. After all, I hold true to my promise: Happily Ever Afters, Always.
