Kendall Price has a big secret. By day she runs the food truck in Lake Point, but by night she’s a high paid escort in the nearby town of Rochester. No sex, just a classy, skilled date-perfect to impress your friends, family, and business associates. When she fills in for her partner-in-crime, she ends up on a date with Levi Brier. Sparks fly, so she’s grateful she’ll never see him again, or she’d risk breaking her cardinal rule against mixing business and pleasure.

Levi hires an escort to help him get through a company function and is instantly enthralled. However he’s leaving Rochester for a new job and expects that is that. When he spots the dark haired beauty running the food truck in his new town, he knows he must have her at all costs.

A miscommunication, a bit of blackmail, and a sexy dare leave them both salivating for more. Can blackmail and deception lead to love?

***All books in Holidays at Lake Point are standalone reads.

What Others Are Saying About Love for Hire

This is romance, no violence or explicit sexual content. No mystery or sidetracking story. It is good and it is a part of the Lake Point community so you get a few of the other characters mentioned as well, so continuing on with the series. It is fairly lighthearted no major angst involved, just a nice gentle read. ~Wendy Hodges

Move to Lake Point. Will these two give into what they are feeling or will Kendell keep Levi at bay? This was another great short story. ~Patricia Ann Blevins

I have enjoyed several of these by this author and would buy them again. They are quick easy reads. ~ oldmodelT

Halloween Trickery.

This may have been the first book I read by Barbara Chioffi.  I love authors that are diverse in genres. Barbara shows she can write in the genres of romance, Paranormal erotica and even horror.

How about a little bait and switch? Three horror tales, each with a twist, three shifters with their own brand of terror. SILK, THIRSTY, and PREY will definitely keep you guessing. Intended for 18+.

Quote from an Amazon review

“Her style flows and she has a way with words that gives the reader a full visual description without drowning the reader with description. I love that about her style and it builds anticipation. Each story contains a twist that I didn’t see coming. I’m not sure I could pick a favorite of the three stories – they are all excellent!”

And here is my video review.


Angel Mine


Jeza is a gorgeous redhead with a broken heart. One afternoon, she meets a handsome stranger at a local gun range and the sparks fly.
Instant attraction results in a hot romance, but trouble looms on the horizon. Her former abusive boyfriend returns to reclaim her with dangerous intent.

Amazon review

Jackson is a sexy cop, who cooks and protects. Jeza is a lonely bookstore owner who has lost her family. Both of these people are a bit skittish about trusting, because of bad relationships in the past. But when Jeza needs help, Jackson doesn’t hesitate to come to her rescue.
This is a sizzling hot short, and a very easy, quick read. If you’re looking for something steamy you can read in an hour, or so, this story is perfect!🙂


Lycan Heart    (pst – this is my favourite)



Julia Monroe has been wandering all her life…from one foster home to another, then one job to another. She meets a wealthy man, Robert Flannery, who becomes her employer. His son, Justin, is attracted to Julia and reveals himself to her; first as his wolf persona, then in his human form. As their relationship develops, Julia learns more about the secrets the Flannerys hold…ones that will lead to love, friendship, and danger

Quote from an Amazon review

perfect length for a quick entertaining read yet the characters are rich and developed. Her writing is impeccable and the stories easy to follow. Lycan Love is an absolute joy to read!

The Magic of Stories



Those that know me well know that my biggest fear is EARTHQUAKES. And yes, it has a scientific name SEISMOPHOBIA.  The term comes from the Greek word SEISMOS (ΣΥΣΜΟΣ) meaning earthquake or war and can you guess what the Greek God of fear was called. Yep, you got it, PHOBOS (ΦΟΒΟΣ.)

The reason I’m bringing this up now, as yet again is another big earthquake hit 6.2 magnitude killing many and nearly destroying a whole town.
Here’s more about that breaking story. Sky News

Yes I’ve been in Earthquakes before and of course you’re scared for your like and your family’s and you have a fear of your house being nothing but ruble. This is rational. What’s not rational is screaming out for your husband, rocking on the bed and hysterically bawling while the bed or chair is shaking.

I blame my fear of all the disaster movies like 2012 and for my hubby, who by the way built my home, telling me that if we had a large quake the house would crumble.

So what fear to you have? And what do you think caused your fear?


Fact or Fiction?

Do moths eat clothes?

I was chatting with my girls about one of life’s wonders. The cycle of a caterpillar to a butterfly.
Did you know that when the lava comes out of its egg, it eats the shell?
Anyhow, so we watched a couple of YouTube videos. I never knew the caterpillar got rid of its  head and antennas before it when into a chrysalis stage.

So this carried onto the subject of moths, which my youngest has a fascination with. I always thought it was a moth that ate the material and made the holes in the clothes. Which is why the pensioners used moths ball, and why out best suits are covered and the wardrobe.

Did you know that a moth only lives for about a week? They don’t have a mouth so they don’t feed. So how can thy eat your clothes?.
The answer is eeekk moment.

Take a look at this.
