A life-changing inheritance...but not in the way she expects.


Dahlia thought settling her aunt’s estate in the seaside town where she’d spent her childhood summers would be easy – a one- or two-day job at the most. Discovering that she’s inherited a crumbling house and a failing bookstore puts a wrench in that plan.


With a nasty trustee who is determined to keep her from selling her inheritance, and Garrett, a handsome neighbor who challenges her at every step, Dahlia doesn’t expect to have a future there.


However, Candle Beach grows on her and she sees transformations in herself that she didn’t expect. With happy memories everywhere she turns, her friends begging her to stay, and a developing attraction to Garrett, could Aunt Ruth’s bequest be the key to Dahlia’s happily-ever-after?


To begin your vacation to the enchanting seaside town of Candle Beach, grab your copy of Sweet Beginnings now!


After you’ve read Sweet Beginnings, you’ll probably want to stay in Candle Beach for a while. Continue the series to find out how each of the women in a circle of friends navigates life, relationships and their own dreams for the future.

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.

Praise for Leeanna Morgan’s books: 

“I am addicted to Leeanna Morgan's books! The only problem with them is that I hate coming to the end of one, and can't wait for the next good read. I love how she weaves the characters together, and draws you right into their lives. If you haven't discovered her, please do give her books a try. You won't be disappointed, except for not having found her sooner!”

“What a deliciously sweet romance!” ~ 5 star review for The Beach Wedding

“Lucy Kevin knows how to write romance! The Beach Wedding is a very well written sweet romance novel of second chance love. Ms. Kevin does not pull any punches in pulling the readers heart strings. And she pulls them really hard.” ~ 5 star review for The Beach Wedding

“I loved this book! Bella Andre writing as Lucy Kevin does an amazing job. You feel as though your on the beach and can feel the sand between your own toes. If you want a book to sit down and curl up on the sofa with and just escape for a few hours with a sweet romance, then this is the book for you!” ~ 5 star review for The Beach Wedding

THE BEACH WEDDING is the first book in the fun and romantic "Married in Malibu" series -- a spin-off of Lucy Kevin's New York Times bestselling "Four Weddings and a Fiasco" series. Lucy Kevin is the "sweet" pen-name of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Bella Andre (who writes the #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans). Lucy Kevin books are fun, flirty and romantic―without the steamy scenes.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Liz Wilkinson has finally landed her dream job overseeing Married in Malibu, a new wedding venue for the Hollywood elite that promises perfect, paparazzi-free happily ever afters. She vows to do whatever it takes to put the new company on the map. Even if it means working with her ex-fiancé...and pretending to be in love with him again, too!

As a bestselling thriller writer, Jason Lomax writes plot twists for a living. But he never could have imagined needing his ex-fiancée's help to arrange a secret beach wedding for his famous niece. Nor did he ever expect to fall even more in love with Liz the second time around.

When their fake dates―and kisses―become breathlessly, wonderfully real, will Jason be able to convince Liz that neither of them is pretending anymore? And that the love they once felt for each other never actually went away...
