“A sweeping historical love story that hits all the marks.” –Publisher’s Weekly starred review


Your feet will bring you to where your heart is.

Ireland 1846. With Ireland ravaged by famine and England unsympathetic to its plight, Kathleen Deacey faces a devastating choice – leave her country to find work or risk dying there. Despising the English for refusing to help Ireland, she crosses the ocean to support her family and search for her missing fiancé.


But when her voyage goes awry, she must accept help from an English whaling captain, Jack Montgomery, who represents everything she despises – and with whom she is reluctantly falling in love. As Kathleen fights to save her family in Ireland, she finds herself facing yet another devastating choice – remain loyal to her country or follow her heart.


Award-winning author Pamela Ford captures the anguish of a devastating period in Irish history and delivers an historical saga of hope, loyalty, the strength of the human spirit, and the power of love. With more than a half million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is known for creating stories that are emotional and moving.

Dreams, donuts and deception. What could possibly go wrong?


Kristin Caruso just wants to meet an ‘S’ man – single, stable and successful. So when friends tell her about manhunting at continental breakfast, she goes to four different hotel breakfasts in one week to maximize her chances of finding the perfect guy. 

Instead, she’s confronted by a handsome stranger who’s been at all the same breakfasts – and wants to know what she’s up to. Panicked, she concocts a cover story and escapes before he can learn the truth.


Swearing off continental breakfast forever, Kristin throws herself into her job. But the catalog where she works is in trouble, and when a new president is introduced two weeks later, Kristin is shocked to discover he’s the stranger from breakfast.


Suddenly, she’s scrambling to cover her tracks. But as everything starts to unravel around her, could all her dreams finally be coming true?

Annie McCarthy finally has the life she's always wanted – a B&B in a small town, a baby on the way, and a handsome husband (that no one has ever met because he's top-secret military ... or so everyone thinks). She also has $250,000 that Nick Fleming gave her to marry him so he could get his trust fund early. After a quickie divorce, they went their separate ways.

Adventure writer Nick is ready to get married for real – to someone else – when he discovers he’s still married to Annie. But Annie refuses to sign the papers unless Nick stays in town long enough to convince everyone they’re husband and wife. So Nick does what he has to do.

He swore he'd never love again...
She'd risk her heart time and again to prove him wrong...

Much to his aggravation, the wickedly handsome Duke of Sethe, is wanted by every husband-hunting, title-chasing female in the country, or so it seems. Twice betrayed by women he loved, Nicholas Leighton is no longer the gullible young fool he was in his youth. Having grown cold and cynical, as well as older and wiser, he has vowed to never again allow another woman to affect him emotionally, for he has learned his lessons and learned them well. So, when the breathtakingly lovely Ashleigh St. John suddenly and unexpectedly enters his life, as well as his home, he is determined to keep the alluring interloper at an emotional and physical distance. Unfortunately, he quickly discovers that some things are easier said than done.

Reckless and daring, Ashleigh St. John is an unconventional young lady with the heart of a hopeless romantic. When she meets Nicholas Leighton she knows she has met the man of her dreams, but unfortunately, the man of her dreams seems bound and determined to keep her at a distance, hiding behind a self-erected wall of cool detachment and calculated indifference. Willing to do almost anything to break through the intractable barriers that guard his heart, she will willingly surrender her innocence and time and again risk her ravaged heart to ultimately win his trust, and more importantly his love.
