Iris in Bloom

Take a Chance

Book 2
Ambleside Publishing
33

Iris Chance is turning thirty-three. She’s an independent
woman, the owner of the Sunflower Coffee and Tea Company in Hidden Falls,
Oregon. Hidden Falls boasts clean air, natural beauty, good neighbors. The only
problem is that there are zero interesting single men and Iris wants a baby.
She’d love the whole package -- the love story, the sexy romance with a hero
who will sweep her off her feet, but she doesn’t have time to wait for Mr.
Right. He may lose his way and never show up. She decides to start a family with
the help of a sperm bank, knowing she’ll have her large family to support and
encourage her as a single mom. When the new High School English teacher, Geoff
McLeod, walks into her café and into her life he seems perfect. There’s only
one problem…

 



Geoff McLeod never imagined his wife would end their six-
year marriage with a text message. Reeling from her betrayal, he moves to
Hidden Falls to teach English and Creative Writing. He’s got zero interest in
women or dating until he meets Iris Chance, the intriguing woman who bakes the
best Morning Glory muffins he’s ever tasted. He can’t imagine starting his day
without stopping in on his way to work for coffee and a muffin and to see the
sexiest woman who ever donned an apron.



 



Iris is oldest girl in a family of eleven kids. She’s always
been the stand-in mother to her younger siblings. She’s got so used to looking
out for other people and listening to their problems that she’s become the
confidante and unofficial therapist of half the town. She can see that the new
English teacher has some emotional baggage dragging along behind him. He looks
like he can use a friend and Iris has never been able to turn away from someone
in pain. She’s prepared to be his friend, but she would never get involved with
someone who is still officially married.



 



When her matchmaking mother invites the new English teacher
to her birthday party everyone begins to wonder whether this will be a friends
to lovers tale.



 



In this contemporary romantic comedy about a small town girl
who longs for a family, but has never entirely trusted she deserved a happy
ending, two lonely people learn that sometimes love comes when you least expect
it.



 



A sexy, humorous, contemporary romance, Iris in Bloom is the
perfect beach read, or a romance novel to while away a rainy afternoon.

  **Same story...updated cover!**

Cookie “Hunter” Knox was good at his job, infiltrating behind enemy lines was one of his specialties. His SEAL team relied on him to do his job, just as he relied on them to do theirs. Ever since two of his teammates found a woman that completed them, their dangerous Ops seemed a bit more intense. Cookie knew if he had a woman who belonged to him, he’d never let her go. Little did he know the SEAL team’s latest mission to Mexico would change his life forever. 

Fiona Storme resigned herself to the fact that it was highly unlikely she would make it out of the jungle alive. Kidnapped by human traffickers, abused, and without family or friends looking for her, Fiona knew wishing for rescue was as realistic as having a big, juicy hamburger fall from the sky. Unbeknownst to Fiona, the SEAL team, including Cookie, were on the way, but their assignment didn't consist of rescuing her. 

**Protecting Fiona is the 3rd book in the SEAL of Protection Series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s recommended you read the books in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the series.
