Five years after Aaron Hammond’s wife died in his arms, he has nearly given up hope of finding happiness again.… until photographer Skye Hathaway shows up in Northstar for a wedding.

Skye is on an extended vacation to put some time and distance between her and her philandering soon-to-be ex-husband. The last thing she needs is to get tangled up with a new man, especially a handsome widower and his charming daughter. The little girl has other plans, however.

Aaron is attentive and loyal, but he still grieves for his wife, and Skye won’t compete with a ghost for his heart. She has been competing with other women for her husband for too long. Only time will tell if Skye and Aaron will be able to move past their painful memories, but with Skye in Northstar for only a few weeks, time is something they don’t have in abundance.

Book 1
A strong-willed woman, a heart-weary deputy, and a cozy mountain cabin. What could possibly go wrong… or right?

For Aelissm Davis, Northstar has always been home. She hoped she’d return someday, but not like this—exhausted by fast-paced city life and shadowed by an obsessive friend. Stubborn and independent, Aelissm likes to handle her own problems, but with Adam Winters, she may be in over her head. It’s time to swallow her pride and call in reinforcements. Her meddling uncle’s solution—send his best deputy to Montana to protect her—makes Aelissm think he has more on his mind than her safety. The last thing she needs is another complication, and with those sad eyes and a gentle heart, Deputy Pat O’Neil is definitely that. Still, there’s something irresistible about the haunted man, and as her focus shifts from avoiding Adam to helping Pat overcome his demons, a different kind of problem arises. When his “vacation” is over, will she be able to convince him to stay?

Book 4
Shane McGuire and Becky Epperson have a history. They might have had much more, but the murders of two close friends killed their shot at forever before it had a chance to breathe, and Shane did what he hoped he never would. He broke Becky’s heart.

Nine years after Shane left Becky in tears at her high school prom, they find their way back to Northstar, and their friends and family wonder if it’s coincidence or fate that has brought them back at the same time. Becky is tired of pretending she doesn’t still love Shane, but that doesn’t mean she’s willing to give him a second chance. A truce is the best she can hope for. He’s made too many mistakes, but they’ve done a lot of growing up in the intervening years, and time has dulled the pain. Shane knows that Becky is the only woman for him, and he’s prepared to do whatever it takes to prove it to her.

The friendship and passion that brought them together in the first place is as irresistible as ever, but Becky is afraid Shane will do what he’s always done—run when things don’t go the way he wants them to. It’s going to take much more than a simple apology to convince Becky to trust him again, but the things in life worth fighting for rarely come easy.

The Northstar Angels will grab you by the heart as they prove family isn’t always a bond of blood in Suzie O’Connell’s heartfelt contemporary romance series set in Northstar, Montana, where friendship and love are as bountiful as the fresh mountain air.

A trip home to Northstar to see his old friend June Montana sounds like heaven, but instead of the escape he hoped for, Ben is reunited with the boy he orphaned.

Suzie O'Connell
Luke Conner and Ryan Connelly have taught together for four years but have ignored their attraction to each other because it’s safer to be alone. What they both need is a friend to ease heartache, and when Ryan stands up for Luke, that’s exactly what they find.

Luke is still struggling to move on a decade after the tragic murders of his high school girlfriend and teammate, and teaching at the same school he attended has turned out to be a nightmare instead of the dream it once was. On top of that, Luke also has a foster son whose past, eerily similar to his own, forces him to delve into memories he’d prefer stay buried. With worries piling up again, it will take a miracle to salvage his career and his sanity. Ryan finds herself wanting to be that miracle. She’s stood by and watched the other teachers harass Luke long enough, and when she defends him, she can’t help but take the next step and extend an offer of friendship despite the warning in her still-bruised heart.

What begins as a tentative camaraderie quickly blossoms into a deep emotional connection wrapped in a physical desire neither of them expected to find, but old habits die hard, and they’ll have to learn how to trust again before they can make a new life together.

The Northstar Angels will grab you by the heart as they prove family isn’t always a bond of blood in Suzie O’Connell’s heartfelt, passionate contemporary romance series set in Northstar, Montana, where friendship and love are as bountiful as the fresh mountain air.

Book 5
Nick Hammond and Beth Carlyle have been best friends since birth and haven’t ever considered that there might be more than friendship between them, but during their final year of college, her boyfriend’s act of selfish brutality changes everything.

Nick has always been sure of his life’s path. When his father retires, he’ll inherit his family’s sprawling Lazy H Ranch and continue the traditions of his forefathers. It’s the only life he wants, but when an evening of fun on the town is shattered by Beth’s screams, Nick’s future is thrown into chaos. Beth’s dreams are destroyed. Forget those kids she wanted, forget showing them how great it is to be a ranch kid, and forget ever enjoying a man’s touch again. All she has left is her family’s C Diamond Ranch, a prayer that she can cobble herself back together well enough to run it… and Nick.

When Nick jumps in to protect Beth, boundaries shift and desires long ignored rise to the surface, forcing them to question everything their friendship was and could be. With their emotions so tangled by what happened, how can they know if these new feelings are only the circumstances or something much deeper? They’ll have to figure it out in a storm of other consequences, and Beth will have to find the courage to keep Nick out of trouble.
