“...heartwarming and at time heart rending...” —Publisher’s Weekly

“For characters who jump off the page and steal your heart, read Julie Ortolon!” —Carly Phillips, New York Times bestselling author

Never has one sweet lie sparked so much passion...

The day Chloe Davis finds a priceless necklace washed up on the beach, she’s convinced it came from the shipwreck in the cove. To her, it’s a sign of acceptance into the idyllic world of Pearl Island where she’s lived for the past few lonely years as a peripheral member of the family who runs the thriving bed and breakfast. That assurance could shatter when a sexy visitor from New Orleans arrives with the truth about the necklace.

Luc Renard, a former classmate who had a hopeless crush on Chloe, is stunned when she flirts with the successful gaming entrepreneur he’s become. Then he realizes she doesn’t recognize him as the school geek he used to be. Nor does she know he came to Pearl Island to recover the necklace for his grandmother, its rightful owner. Should he allow her to think he’s a stranger and enjoy their time together, or tell her the truth and watch all that desire fade from her eyes?

What starts as a simple omission of fact quickly sets Chloe and Luc adrift in a sea of longing, love, and conflicting loyalties. Each must choose between the demands of family and the needs of the heart. Will love give them the courage to find a safe harbor where they both belong?

When the girl next door...
Karen’s finally decided what she wants to do when she grows up. Too bad it’ll mean leaving behind her new neighbour, who’s stirred up a different kind of grown up feelings. But when he rebuffs her attempt to have a fling before she leaves Wardham, Karen knows it's for the best. A clean break, no messy emotional entanglements.

Meets the man of her dreams...
Intense and private, Paul has recently moved to Wardham for a more family friendly job, leaving behind a career as a homicide detective in the city. He only has his ten year old daughter a few nights a week, and he doesn’t want any distractions or drama while he tries to repair their relationship.

At exactly the wrong time.
But Karen is right next door, and everywhere he goes. His resolve to keep his distance only lasts until she needs a true friend in her corner, and he realizes he can’t imagine life without her.

Where Their Hearts Collide is a modern, sexy, small town contemporary romance about a Canadian cop who's also a single dad and the girl next door who wants to be a librarian. Warning: contains steamy phone sex, sweet kitchen table sex, and a whole lot of kissing.
