Welcome to Ravish Ridge...

... where sexy, small town heroes fall fast and work hard to satisfy the sassy women who capture their heart in an instant.

If you love blindsided men, women who know what they want, and steamy-sweet, small town romance, the It Only Takes ONE series is perfect for you. There is no cheating and no cliffhangers, just a sweet and steamy HEA for every couple.

My Army sniper days are over thanks to a misread that cost me everything. I may have come home from combat alive, but that doesn’t mean I’m whole. Not by a long shot.

I’m at a party where I don’t belong when she charges in like a ray of sunshine with curves for days and a smile that reaches the corners of my cold soul. And throws down a challenge I can’t refuse.

The sense I’ve met my match lands like a grenade in the pit of my stomach. Last time I had this feeling, I was on a gurney in the back of a Black Hawk medevac within an hour. But, I've learned my lesson. I’ve got a plan.

Only problem is… she blows it to pieces.


One Shot with the Soldier is also set in Ravish Ridge. It is an interconnected standalone in the It Only Takes ONE Series as well as part of the Heart of a Wounded Hero Series.

If you love reading about wounded military heroes, curvy women, and unexpected love in a small town, then you’ll love this short, steamy-sweet military romance about accepting the past in order to embrace the future.

About the Author

Ellen Brooks believes in love at first sight, eating cake for breakfast, and staying up way too late.

She's a classically trained pastry chef who now spends her days whipping up short, steamy-sweet and satisfying modern day love stories.

When she’s not dreaming up her next characters, or plotting a happily ever after, you’ll find her absorbed in a book, relaxing into shavasana, or downing a caffè americano. Oh, and belting out the lyrics to Hamilton.

Ellen lives in the desert southwest where she still *occasionally bakes a batch of cookies for her real-life hero and two girls.

*code for not often enough, if you ask them
