Always and Forever

When I left Dogwood Cove eighteen years ago, Ethan Monroe was nothing more than my best friend’s older brother. Now he’s the missing piece that puts my wounded heart back together.

Over that time he went from the boy who played hide and seek with us, to the seriously hot, plaid-wearing, scruff-bearing, mayor of the small town we grew up in.

But I’m only back to figure out what to do with the run-down beachfront resort my estranged father left me in his will.

Not to be swept off my feet and fall in love.

The resort needs a lot of work and Ethan wants to help me restore it. He makes a tool belt look good and watching his muscles lift heavy loads is giving me ideas that go way beyond just friends. And if the heated, lingering looks he sends my way are any indication, the attraction goes both ways.   

Except I’ve got trust issues that can’t be repaired with a hammer and some nails, and Ethan has his own secrets he’s hiding.

Still, coming home could be the start of the life I’ve always dreamed of. And Ethan could be the love I never expected to find.

Always and Forever is perfect for fans of steamy small town romance, found family friend groups, cinnamon roll heroes, plenty of swoon, light hearted banter, quirky small town vibes, low angst and high heat love stories with a guaranteed HEA. It is a standalone, and the first full length novel in the Dogwood Cove series.

Rumours and Romance

Our agreement was real. The feelings were fake. It was simple, until it got complicated. 

The partnership at Dogwood Cove vet hospital is within my reach. But it may as well be a million miles away with the stipulation my boss has given me. “Settle down” he says, whatever that means. All I know is that I need something or someone to make it clear I’m ready to stay in Dogwood Cove for the long haul, and I’ve got nothing on the horizon.

Until Mila Monroe kisses me. 

She’s beautiful, friendly, and not looking for a real relationship any more than I am. Not to mention she makes the best cinnamon buns I’ve ever tasted.

We both have our reasons to keep the relationship fake so it should be easy to keep our boundaries in place and just fuel the rumours by pretending to be more.

We said we wouldn’t fall for each other. Turns out that was as big a lie as the relationship the town thinks we’re having.

Rumours and Romance is the perfect fake relationship that leads to real love. For fans of steamy small town, with sassy heroines, swoony heroes, adorable animals, found family friend groups, low angst and high heat romance with a guaranteed HEA.

Work and Play

Forced to share an AirBNB with a hot guy? Check

That hot guy being my new boss? Check.

The fact that my boss clearly doesn’t want me here? You guessed it, check.

Landing the interior design job at Finn McNeil’s new winery in Dogwood Cove is supposed to be my fresh start. Let’s just say things aren’t going as planned. 

Finn clearly doesn’t want my help, questioning my design choices at every turn. He’s grumpy, stubborn, and annoyingly sexy. To top it all off, sharing a house together means running into each other at inopportune times, like when I accidentally see every gorgeous inch of him in the shower, naked.

In spite of all that, I’m determined to win him over with my charm and professionalism. Not only do I need this job, but the town has become more than a place to earn a living, it’s become home. 

Still, I should know better than to let the lines blur between work and play. Neither of us know how to do relationships and this is bound to end in disaster. But what if it turns out to be the perfect blend for love instead?

Work and Play is the ultimate steamy small town romance, for fans of forced proximity, a quirky heroine who knows what she wants, and a winemaker who’s determined to avoid her. This book is for readers who love grumpy-sunshine banter, a dirty talking hero, a close friend group, small town vibes, low angst and high heat with a guaranteed HEA.

Truth and Temptation

I’m the reluctant heir to a bookstore empire, and an adrenaline junkie trying to outrun the ghosts of my past. Love is the last thing I’m looking for, or even feel I deserve.

When my job lands me in Dogwood Cove for a while, I have no intention of pretending to be someone I’m not, much less to fall for a risk-averse small-town bookstore owner who sees a side of me I was convinced no longer existed. We couldn’t be more opposite of each other, but I can’t seem to stay away from her.

The problem is, if Paige knew the truth of who I was, how broken I really am, she’d run in the other direction.

She brings a flicker of light to my dark. She is the brakes to my throttle. Her quiet strength, curious mind, and naive charm soothes my damaged heart. And her subtle, stunning beauty is a temptation I want to give in to, reminding me there’s more to life than the burden I’ve carried for so long.

My emotional scars run deep and the chains of guilt weigh me down, making me less of a man than someone like Paige deserves.

And when the truth comes to light, I risk losing the love that could change me forever.

Truth and Temptation is a heartwarming, swoony love story, perfect for readers who enjoy steamy small town romance with a heroine who has no idea what she’s missing in her love life, and a broken alpha hero determined to help her figure it out. Readers who want a dash of angst and a heavy dose of spice, with characters who help heal each other, and grow together as they fall in love with a guaranteed HEA.

Then and now

The man I once loved – and lost –  is back. Only this time, there’s more than just my heart on the line, there’s his daughter’s heart too.

Leo and I were high school sweethearts who promised to love each other forever. Until I discovered that love is a lie, and I broke that promise.

When my life crumbled around me, and my career as a professional ballerina ended in an instant, it seemed clear to me that I didn’t get to have any of my dreams come true. Finding my way to Dogwood Cove, and rebuilding my life there as a dance teacher, was my last chance at happiness, with just one big thing missing: The part of me I gave away a long time ago, and never expected to get back.

Leo has always owned my heart, and no other man has ever stood a chance.

When he shows up in my town almost twenty years later, with a little girl I can’t help but adore, it’s impossible not to get swept up in the hope of a second chance. After all, Leo makes it clear he’s determined to break down my walls, rebuild my trust in love, and prove to me that our promise was never really broken.

But then life decides to knock me down again with a direct hit to my just starting to heal heart.

With twenty years of heartache and pain between Leo and I, can I let him stand beside me as I face the ghosts of my past, all while fighting to keep my dance studio afloat? Or will all of the hard lessons I’ve learned, only make me push him away again?

Then and Now is perfect for fans of second chance romance, steamy small town love stories, swoony single dads, and close knit friend groups.
