Begin Again 

What if one night changed your life forever?

Maisie Scott lost not only her husband and unborn child in a tornado two years ago she lost her will to live. Keeping busy is the only way she can get by. This small town waitress won’t let herself get attached to anyone… until Ryan, the new veterinarian for exotic animals, starts making regular trips to her diner. As hard as she tries not to feel anything, Ryan ignites a spark in her broken heart.

Ryan Tucker craves a happy family of his own more than his Momma’s apple pie. Getting over his fiancĂ©e leaving him six months ago, he moves to Pleasant Valley for a fresh start. When he meets Maisie and notices the sadness in her eyes he is determined to put a smile on her pretty face.

What starts out as innocent flirting turns into two people finding something they no longer want to live without. The problem is Maisie has deep scars inside and out. Showing Ryan that part of her may just be too painful.

When another dangerous storm hits, Ryan stays by Maisie’s side. She fills the missing piece in his heart, but will Ryan share his secret? Can Maisie move on from the past and learn to begin again?

Trust Again

Once broken, can the heart really trust again? 

Dreams of escaping her small town brought Ellie Oliver to New York only to find that life there wasn't all she'd hoped. Seven years later, she is returning to Pleasant Valley, Indiana with new hopes and secrets. She wants nothing more than to fade into the slow pace of small town life and forget about the demons of her past. 

Jacob Jones is at loose ends. At twenty-six, a man shouldn't be starting his life over from scratch. Finding himself out of work, Jacob looks for a new home in Pleasant Valley. He is ready for the single life just enjoying the company of close friends. All that changes when he takes a job remodeling the town's toy shop and comes head to head with its new owner. Ellie turns out to be sweeter than the candy she sells in her store. 

Ellie and Jacob bring out feelings in each other neither were looking for, but both can't deny. Can they truly trust again or will their shattered hearts refuse to mend?

A Guide to Love

The love ship sailed long ago for Daphne Pepper... 

Feisty native of Sand Crest Island, Daphne has everything she needs... or so she thought. Until she meets handsome Remy Rosetto who is on a mission to complete his grandfather’s request in order to earn his inheritance. 

Remy hires Daphne to be his tour guide for an unheard of amount of money and she is more than happy to take his cash then send him away. Which is fine with Remy, who wants to get back to his penthouse in New York. 

Daphne loves her island and will not even think of leaving her family and friends, but as Remy falls for this island beauty he has other plans. 

Can they both find more than they ever wanted or are they too stubborn to compromise?
