Then There Was You (Haven Bay 1)

Can widow Katarina protect both her battered heart and her beloved B&B from the property developer passing through her small town? 

Katarina blames herself for her husband’s death, and now the only distraction she has from that pain is running a beachfront bed and breakfast that a big city developer plans to buy her out of. 

Katarina has no intention of selling, but something about the aloof Sterling Knight makes her determined to prove that her B&B is worth more than money can buy. What she didn’t expect, however, was to be charmed by the man beneath his prickly exterior. 

Sterling reignites a spark she thought was long dead, but no matter how tempting she finds him, she’s not willing to risk her home…or her heart.

Two of a Kind (Haven Bay 2)

He’s a professional adventurer. Her only adventures have been between the pages of her favorite novels. When they share a mind-blowing kiss, will these polar opposites fizzle or combust?

Blogger Brooke Griffiths has spent a lifetime being held back by illness, but that’s about to change. She’s finally healthy enough to pursue her dream of hiking to Mt Everest base camp, and the first step is convincing broody Jack Farrelly to help her prepare. The only problem is, they exchanged a mind-blowing kiss weeks ago, and he never called. In a town the size of Haven Bay, that’s downright awkward. But she can put her pride aside to herself–and her followers–that they’re capable of overcoming any adversity, right?

Jack has dated a woman in the public eye before, and has the emotional wounds to show for it. He’s smart enough to learn from his mistakes, which means staying away from Brooke even if he’d enjoy the challenge of helping her get ready to hike Mt Everest. Unfortunately, denying her proves impossible—both professionally and personally—and before long, he’s in deeper than he ever imagined possible.

When old wounds are reopened, can Brooke and Jack overcome the pain of their pasts and take a chance on love?

Safe In His Arms (Haven Bay 3)

She’s running for her life. He’s hiding from his past. When the two collide, can they emerge with their hearts intact?
Fleeing from her violent ex, Megan Talbot seeks refuge in the charming beachside town of Haven Bay. The kind-hearted locals are happy to help her recuperate without interfering—all except brooding, tattooed Tione, the cook at the B&B where she’s staying. He’s made it clear he thinks she’s trouble, but despite his distrust, she can’t seem to stay away from him. After all, who could resist a bearded hulk whose life is dictated by his four rescue dogs?

Tione Kingi just wants to be left alone. After his life in Silicon Valley imploded, he returned home and reinvented himself. Now, he has a few close friends, a simple job, and a cabin on the edge of the forest. He doesn’t need a pretty woman with haunted eyes turning him inside out with her every hard-won smile, and he especially doesn’t need whatever problems are following close on her heels.

The more time they spend together, the harder it is for Tione to deny the feelings growing between them. But Megan isn’t the only one with secrets, and when their pasts catch up with them, everything—including her life—hangs in the balance.

Five years ago, she left her ex and gave birth in secret. Now her ex’s sexy brother has moved to town, and he wants answers. But he might just steal her heart, too.

Single mother Bex Cane doesn’t have time for love. It’s hard enough managing three jobs and her precocious daughter Izzy.

But now she’s back in his life, and he can’t help noticing that her daughter looks an awful lot like his brother. He’ll get to the bottom of the mystery—even if it stirs feelings he’d thought long dead.

Despite their history, Bex and Michael can’t resist the spark between them. But when Michael’s brother arrives in the bay, can their unexpected passion survive as they figure out what it means to be a family?

Pretend to Be Yours (Haven Bay 5)

Faith needs a fake boyfriend to ward off her matchmaking mother. Sexy single dad Shane fits the bill. Now he just needs to persuade her to give him a chance at something real.

Faith St. John doesn’t do relationships. Not after a string of men told her she’s just too much. Too loud, too quirky, too full-on. But then her parents turn up in Haven Bay with a blind date in tow. As if things couldn’t get worse, her high school sweetheart—who broke her heart and her ego—asks for a second chance. Enough is enough. She needs a man to play the role of devoted boyfriend—at least until her parents and ex leave town—and she knows just the guy for the job.

Shane Walker has yearned for curvy ice-cream maker Faith since she started babysitting his sons. He’s never bothered to pursue her because it would be crazy to imagine that the vivacious woman would even look twice at a jaded school teacher like him. But when their pretend kisses begin to feel genuine, he’ll have to decide if he’s willing to risk his battered heart.

With Shane’s ex interfering, and his eldest son reluctant to embrace Faith’s new role in their lives, can the couple overcome the odds—and their personal hang-ups—to pave a path to happily ever after?
