Mother Parker Cover

Mayberry Protectors Series, Book 1

Divorced. Beaten down. A failure. Until a ray of sunshine comes into my life…

People call me Officer Grumpypants, but wouldn’t you be if life kept knocking you down?

My life is an endless sh*t list that I can’t even begin to unravel.

It all started when my parents died.

It continued when I was forced to sell my house.

And it all came to an epic conclusion when my wife walked out on me.

What I need is to get my mind in order and my life back on track.

So when my old commander offers me a job in Mayberry Holm, I grab the opportunity by the balls.

I’m ready to put my head down and my hands to work.

What I wasn’t planning though was becoming pet food for crows by this infuriating little man who throws seeds at my face.

Or being hired to help said man with his new store.

Or having to protect him from a bunch of criminals that prey on his softness and sweetness.

Even though he drives me insane, I can’t stop thinking of him. And even though he’s annoyingly cheerful, I can’t help but smile around him.

Or fantasize about him doing… naughty things to me.

What the hell is happening to me? Am I falling for the young, bubbly, pink-haired man? And is it too late to stop it?

Welcome to Mayberry Holm, a small island in the Atlantic full of crime, secrets and happily-ever-afters, and the ex-Navy SEALs that come to deal with them all.

Excerpt:

“All right, Mr. Dorothy, calm down,” he said.

Despite my snap, he didn’t look offended.

“Dorothy? Why Dorothy? This isn’t Oz, sweetheart,” I said.

Did I really need to add the sweetheart to my reply?

No. No, I didn’t. And yet I had, for no reason whatsoever.

“I’m not talking about Dorothy from Oz. I’m talking about Dorothy Zbornak. The grumpiest of the Golden Girls.”

Golden…Golden Girls?

Was he even alive when The Golden Girls was on?

And how was that relevant?

And most importantly, why would he call me by one of their names?

“Dorothy?” I grunted. “And if I’m Dorothy, who the hell are you? Blanche?”

Hwan was definitely a Blanche. He looked effortlessly flawless. Never mind the constant smile on his face, which I was pretty sure was flirting, but I could be wrong.

Not to say anything of the fact he was completely irresistible. Or must be. I assumed. I wouldn’t know, of course. I wasn’t gay.

But if the men he dated felt even an inkling of the…frustration I felt around him, then he must be irresistible.

“Bla—Bitch, I’m Rose, and I own it. Now finish that tea, princess,” he said.

I frowned.

Had he really just called me princess?

And had he really just snapped at me?

He raised an eyebrow and a hint of a smirk before he spoke again.

“That ice is going to melt and ruin your drink. So…hurry up, Mr. Dorothy.”

First, he calls me princess, and now he keeps calling me Dorothy? Who the hell did he think he was?

I started shaking the drink, and naturally, since I was trying to prove a point, the whole thing exploded on me.

“For fuck’s sake!” I shouted, and was it my imagination, or did Hwan jump at my outburst?

“It’s okay. That’s fine. It happens to everyone their first time.”

And there he was with his virgin hints again.

Was he trying to get a rise out of me?

Well, if he was, I was just serving it to him on a platter.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
