Only the heart truly knows when it is ready to love again.



Alex Popovich has been reluctant to open himself to love again after the death of his wife years ago. Instead, the dedicated doctor has thrown himself into caring for his kids and his patients. But when an opportunity arises to be the head of cardiology at a state-of-the-art hospital in California, Alex decides it's a great time for a fresh start. Things are beginning to look up for him...until a fender bender with Peyton, a spirited art teacher, throws his life for a loop. She's beautiful, talented, and fiery. Having a social life, much less a new romance, is the last thing Alex wants right now, but he can't help being drawn to her. Now he must decide whether to continue living in the past or risk taking a chance on an unexpected future...


Peyton Colfax is having a difficult year. She's left New York City for a small town in California, putting a failed relationship behind her as she searches for new inspiration for her struggling art career. To make ends meet, she's substituting as an art teacher while hoping to score an artist residency in Maine. After a minor car accident on the way to her job interview sends the handsome Alex Popovich crashing into her life, she realizes he's trouble right away. The minute she sees him, she's reluctantly attracted to the hot, single dad who is obviously a terrible driver. Too bad he also has an ego the size of California. Although she tries to keep her distance, no matter where she goes in the sleepy small town, he always seems to be around, being both infuriating...and sexy. She's not sure if she wants to risk losing her heart to a man who might not be ready to commit. Especially if she's not sure she'll be staying in town long enough to put down roots...

Book 1
Book 4
Can two restless hearts make beautiful music together?

Leigh McGill knows her chance to make it big in Nashville is built on a lie. Recently arrived in the city with her some-time boyfriend and manager, she's been dropping the name of country star Tate McGill to get gigs. That isn't so bad, is it? Until her boyfriend convinces her to break into Tate McGill's Nashville estate while he's away on tour, live in his mansion, charge up his credit cards, and borrow his priceless classic car. After all, Tate will forgive her—once he learns she's the half sister he never knew he had.

Rafe Kendrick, part of the security team for the billionaire Blake family, has been trying to find out who's been squatting in Tate McGill's house and making fraudulent charges on his credit cards. Tate might not be a Blake by name, but he's a member of the family in every way that matters. And if there's one thing the Blakes do, it's take care of their own. So when Rafe corners the pretty country singer onstage at a Nashville club, he thinks his work here is done. But when Tate orders him to bring the woman to the Blakes's Texas ranch, Rafe finds his problems are only beginning. The sexy, spunky singer is a real spitfire, and she has no desire to spend days on the road handcuffed to Rafe, or nights in cramped hotel rooms, where the energy they generate becomes a firestorm they can't deny. But Rafe knows a thing or two about the McGills. And he isn't sure he'll be able to protect her when family secrets come a'callin'.
