Be my Valentine, Blueberry Springs.

Three short stories of sweet, clean romance from the Blueberry Springs series. Forbidden kisses, tough choices, and a question that will change the future of one of the town’s favorite couples.

Tequila and Candy Hearts
One new job. One chance to prove herself. And one crush on the man she most definitely shouldn’t.

Nicola Samuels has spent the past two years traveling the world with her best friend Todd Haber and is ready to settle down with her first real career as Blueberry Springs’s community planner. Eager to make her mark on the small town, she creates the first annual Valentine’s Day Love Extravaganza. Thinking she is immune to the holiday, she hires a man dressed as Cupid, not expecting to fall under the spell of the holiday…

But when Cupid strikes, will she kiss the man she shouldn’t—or will she hide her true feelings in order to prevent ruining the one thing she can’t risk losing?

Vodka and Chocolate Hearts
One happy couple. One friend with a not-so-secret crush. One Valentine’s Day that could change it all.

Months ago, Amber Thompson returned to her hometown of Blueberry Springs with hunky newscaster Russell Peaks on her arm. But lately her boyfriend has been spending more and more time in the city as well as talking about moving back. No problem; Amber can work as a mail-order database lackey anywhere there’s internet—as long as Russell asks her to come along.

When the town’s first Valentine’s Day Love Extravaganza gets underway, Amber’s boyfriend gets held up in the city, causing her best friend Scott Malone to pick up his slack. Will Scott’s good intentions be noticed for what they truly are and create a Blueberry Springs love triangle, or will Russell find a way to redeem himself in time to reclaim his girlfriend?

Note to readers: This short story can be read before Amber's novel Vodka and Chocolate Drops.

Whiskey and Gumdrop Hearts
One woman. One man. One question.

Award-winning baker Mandy Mattson is tired of feeling as though she’s always leaning on her boyfriend Frankie Smith to make her dreams come true. Struggling to expand her new restaurant in hopes of becoming more financially secure, she doesn’t know what to do when her boyfriend asks for the one thing she doesn’t have— more time to spend with him.

When Frankie runs out of patience, Mandy finds herself having to choose between two dreams. Will she make the right choice? Or will she find a way to have her cake and eat it too?

Note to readers: This standalone short story is an ‘after story’ from Whiskey and Gumdrops. It can be read as a standalone, but does contain spoilers for that novel. It contains no cliffhangers.

One nature guide. One accidental forest fire. And one steamy investigator hot on her tail.

Life would be easy for Jen Kulak if she hadn’t just burned down the forest she depends upon for her business’s wilderness adventures. It would be even easier if she hadn’t accidentally fallen head over heels for the fire investigator tracking her every move.

When the pressure on Jen heats up will she run like she has in the past? Or will she find the strength to fight the accusations that could cost her everything, including her own happily ever after?

Forgiveness. Second chances…and secrets.

Resort manager Zoe Ward has spent the past year throwing her broken heart into rescuing abandoned pets and ensuring vacationing couples have the trip of their dreams. She even helps engaged couples create their happily ever afters, something she’d believed she was going to have with Ashton Wallace before he left with barely a word about why. But now he’s back and looking for a second chance.

Ashton can’t stop thinking about Zoe. He knows all she wants is marriage and a family, and he was certain he could provide it. However, when his past life came crashing in before he could pop the question, he left Indigo Bay in order to protect Zoe. But now that things have settled out again, he’s back and looking to turn his biggest regret into a happy ending.

Will Zoe find room in her heart for forgiveness? And can Ashton prove that this time he’s here to stay? Because he’s been keeping secrets that could ruin everything…and Zoe knows it.

This is the tenth novel in the Indigo Bay series, but all books can be read as standalones.

Fall in love with THE THORNTONS, a family filled with sexy alpha males, passionate women, and lots of heart, all set in a delightful small town in the Pacific Northwest. Each book in the series is connected but can be read as a standalone.


Megan Flannigan wants only two things in life: to run her bakery The Rise and Shine, and to avoid the handsome and insufferable Officer Caleb Thornton.


Caleb has made her life difficult ever since he arrested her over a decade ago, and her one wish is that he leaves her alone—while they both continue to deny the attraction that sparks between them every time they meet.

Her wishes are dashed when her bakery is robbed. To make matters worse? Caleb is assigned to the case—and now he’s the officer charged to protect Megan from a dangerous criminal.
 
Caleb Thornton decided to become a police officer to atone for a tragic adolescent mistake. As part of the famously rich and privileged Thornton family, he’s always been aware of how he can never measure up to his family’s expectations.

As a result, he follows the letter of the law in both his job and his personal life—except when it comes to the beautiful and fiery Megan. She makes him yearn for something more, and she attracts him as much as she frustrates him. When Caleb is assigned to watch over Megan, he’s forced to reconcile the feelings he’s harbored for her for years.

But as danger draws closer to Fair Haven, Megan and Caleb must come to grips with the past—or risk losing the love of a lifetime.

“...both a love story and a story of personal growth.” —Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times, 41/2, Top Pick

Cleo Alyssum's plan is simple: stay sober, stay out of trouble, and bite her tongue until Social Services sees she’s pretty close to perfect and returns her little boy. But when an accident on her isolated property forces her to rent a cottage to celebrated cartoonist Jared McCloud, her carefully constructed comfort zone develops cracks.

Jared has a deadline to meet or he’ll forfeit still another lucrative career and be branded for life by his family as the loser in the family. Only, he wasn’t meant to be a hermit, and his cartoon characters aren’t nearly as fascinating as his quirky, enigmatic landlady.

When Jared discovers his island hideaway contains a drug-dealing neighbor’s two neglected, abused teens, he shoves Cleo into the real world that she fears in his effort to save the children.

Risking everything, the pair join forces to find a home for the kids and have their mother’s dangerous boyfriend locked up. In the process, they face a new realization that there’s more to life and love than either of them ever planned or dreamed.

One sexy, burned out billionaire. One spitfire graduate. One small island. 

 

Tycoon Connor MacKenzie has it all from the penthouse to the world-dominating corporation. At least that's what everyone believes. Underneath it all, his life is disintegrating faster than a stock market crash.

When Connor's doctor forces him to take it easy and go deep into cottage country for some much needed R&R he lands on an old cottage veranda in Muskoka which lacks the luxuries he’s accustomed to. Maya Summer, a recent business grad, has been waiting for opportunity to come a knockin’ and not only has it arrived on her doorstep, but it’s presented itself in a very sexy package. However, despite Maya's best advances and proposals, Connor's strict new "no-work diet" has them both starving for much more than than just business. 

Can Maya convince Connor to let her be his new right-hand business gal while gaining enough income to save her family's cottage? And will Connor, the workaholic, be able to resist her charms, both in and out of the boardroom?
