 Jake Cooper has built homes for families in Laguna Beach for years, watching others make their dreams come true. Now it’s his turn to settle down, or so he thought. When his long-time girlfriend breaks up with him, he’s left with the perfect family home, just without the family.
Erin Johnson grew up with very few possessions, the glamorous lives of her high school classmates out of reach. Right as she prepared to start her life, a family tragedy forces her to derail her plans. Ten years later, with her college diploma in hand, Erin’s ready for adventure and freedom from responsibility.

When she meets Jake, she questions everything she thought she wanted. 

Is it possible to build new dreams when the right person comes along?

A man of integrity…with a secret desire

Moose Garrett just wants to do the right thing. Fulfill his duty. Honor his parents. Fix his neighbors’ tractors. Ignore the girl he needs to forget.

Everyone in Sawyer expects Moose to woo and wed the town beauty queen – not Georgia Rowland. Hell, Moose’s parents have all but signed a marriage contract with the revered patriarch of another wealthy Sawyer family.

So yeah, it’s true that Georgia’s been tempting him ever since he hit puberty and discovered the allure of the opposite gender, but that doesn’t mean he’s actually going to give into the temptation.

Georgia is strictly off limits.

Totally.

But matters of the heart are about as predictable as a wildfire – a wildfire that comes straight out of nowhere…and changes everything.


A woman who’s all business…with a secret crush

Georgia has spent a lot of years – roughly 26 of them or so – pretending Moose Garrett wasn’t the finest man in Sawyer. She pushes pesky thoughts of him clear out of her mind. She never pays a bit of attention to his powerful build, or how his blue jeans show off his lean and muscular body. And for the record, she barely even notices the way his slow, sultry smile makes her knees wobbly.

Because that hardly ever happens.

As the youngest branch manager of the Goldfork Credit Union, and the first female to hold that position, she’s too busy for any of that nonsense. Besides, everyone knows Moose is bound to marry Sawyer’s reigning beauty. Georgia is sure he’d never give a moment’s notice to…well, to someone like her.

But when Miss No Nonsense sets out on a hike in the foothills of Long Valley and gets trapped amidst the flames of a wildfire, the only man she’s ever wanted swoops in to save her.

So yeah, Moose is the last man she should dream about.

But he’s the one man who will walk through danger and smoke and fire.

Just to find her…


Inferno of Love is the second novel in the Firefighters of Long Valley series, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!

What happens when two childhood best friends discover that the only thing that could threaten their friendship is a blossoming love?


Schedules and structure have no place Marigold Scott’s free-spirited lifestyle. Her creative approach to life is useful when it comes to designing floral arrangements, but when it comes to expanding her shop, she's in over her head. Thankfully, there's someone in town who knows a thing or two about staying on task and that's none other than her best friend Butch. But after she felt something more for him at her sister’s wedding, she isn’t sure hiring him is the best idea.


After six years in the military, procedures, order, and routines are deeply ingrained in Butch Johnson. Coming home to Sanders Corner didn’t change any of that. He has a plan for his life which includes marriage and children. But until he finds the right woman, he’s got his best friend Mari and that’s good enough for him…


Until a spark of attraction ignites between them and changes everything they thought they knew about their relationship.


Like day and night, they are far from perfect for each other. But tell that to their hearts. As their attraction deepens, neither of them wants to ruin their friendship, but they are powerless to stop their feelings. Just when they’re starting to unravel their feelings, Mari reveals a secret that puts Butch's life plan in jeopardy. Now Butch must decide if it's time to stay on track or alter his life plan to keep the one he loves.


Start reading this sweet small-town romance to find out if opposites really attract and cherished friends make forever marriages. 

After six years of focusing on her career, Natalie Armstrong craves the peace and tranquility that only Sapphire Bay can give her. But returning to her grandparents’ cottage isn’t as easy as she imagined. No one told her about her houseguest or the unexpected changes in the small town she calls home.

Gabe Lanigan is a former NYPD detective. His new career as a bestselling crime writer has brought him everything he didn't want - fame, fortune, and a deep distrust of strangers. When Natalie arrives in Sapphire Bay, their unlikely friendship sparks into something he never expected. But the real reason he left New York City is closing in fast and Natalie is standing in his way.

Falling For You is the first book in the Sapphire Bay series and can easily be read as a standalone. Each of Leeanna's series are linked so you can find out what happens to your favorite characters in other books.
