These four works are the first four stories in the Bourbon Springs Series of contemporary romances set in the Land of Bourbon and Bluegrass.
After the deaths of her parents and husband, high school history teacher Lila McNee inherits her family's land and retreats to her childhood home in search of safety and solitude in Bourbon Springs, Kentucky. Yet instead of the peace she needs to heal, she discovers her neighbor to the north, Bo Davenport, the owner-distiller of Old Garnet Distillery, desperately wants a big chunk of her land along the property line which has been subject to dispute for years. Bo wants land to expand the distillery, one of his father’s last wishes, and sees the property as rightfully belonging to Old Garnet. But the land is Lila’s refuge against a world that has only brought her heartbreak, and is the home to her beloved and historic springs--the very spot from which Bourbon Springs derived its name over two centuries earlier.
After months of fruitless negotiations, Bo sues Lila. And she sues him back. Drawn together by conflict over the place they both love, the two find themselves falling for each other. But if they can't find a solution to the land dispute and figure out a way to share that which is most dear to them, they not only risk losing the lawsuit, they also risk losing their chance at love.

She hadn’t counted on that.
For over a year, Maisie Chaplin has desperately fought to preserve land adjacent to her beloved Civil War battlefield. Begging and pleading various officials hasn’t worked. She’s even stalked the landowner’s attorney, Cord Bilton, hoping for help.
That went nowhere.

As an intense, fiery attraction draws them together, Maisie faces losing her first true love—the land. And Cord’s first duty is to his client and the law, despite what his heart tells him.
As loss looms like ghosts over the battlefield, Maisie and Cord discover that the fire is hottest not in the war over the past, but in the struggle to survive the challenges of the present.

But she’s not the only one trying to stop the destruction. The denizens of Craig County are plotting and planning to save the site as well.
Yet there is an unexpected, unknown hero. One that Coraleigh discovers only after a chance encounter with residents of Bourbon Springs who take a rare tour of her historic estate, Traveler’s Rest.
