A match made in heaven? 

In what universe?

Boston lawyer Gwyneth Jacobi’s perfect life is on the skids. First, she suffered a humiliating and very public loss in San Francisco and, now, her dad is dying. Being handed the ignoble job of helping a wealthy do-gooder with a Don Quixote complex save an old lady and her pig sounds like the punch line to a bad joke—until the day the lawyer they call "The Barracuda" meets Cuddles the pig and her handsome champion, Arley McNamara.

 

He's trust-fund misfit who tilts at windmills. Can a man who has never lacked for anything—but love—convince a by-the-book lawyer to bend a few rules for the greater good? Or will Gwyneth make Arley’s “cause célébre” her shortcut to the top, leaving Arley and the family he’s determined to help behind? Love, after all, demands the kind of truth only an honest heart can answer.

Sometimes, a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do.


George Ralston’s human family needs his help. Life was better with a mom and nothing’s been the same since the old one left.  George may not be a retriever, but he has the perfect replacement in mind.


The Paws Spa owner Kara Williams’s goals are written in stone. The single mother of twins has scrimped and saved to take her pet care salon to the next level. She loves her animal clients but can’t always say the same about their owners. Even Brad Ralston—her youthful secret crush. His dog, George, is acting out. Rumor has it his son is, too. Recently divorced men—no matter how attractive—are Kara’s kryptonite and she keeps her distance…until a huge winter storm takes the roof off her house.


Dog trouble. Ex-wife trouble. Kid trouble. Restaurant owner and chef Brad Ralston desperately needs a live-in housekeeper. If she comes with twin little girls and a bunny, so be it. Twice burned—his ex-wife and ex-best friend ran off to Mexico together—Brad’s heart isn’t part of any business agreement…unless a matchmaking Great Dane has his way.


Forever and Ever, By George is Book 7 in the West Coast Happily-Ever-After series. If you’re a fan of romantic comedies packed with cute kids, an ark of animals, and a crotchety side-kick or two, you won’t want to miss Debra Salonen’s sweet, fun, feel-good story set on the Oregon coast. 


If you've ever wondered what your dog is thinking, you owe it to yourself to buy Forever and Ever, By George.

 

Welcome to the West Coast--where Happily-Ever-After is state of the heart.

 

It’s just for the summer...

Single mom Anne Fraser is this close to breaking through the glass ceiling of corporate hotel management. She can’t afford to take off a whole summer to fill her late mother’s shoes at the Silver Rose Guest Ranch even if a few months out of the city might be just what the doctor ordered for eight-year-old Zoey. Anne can’t say no to her beloved stepfather’s request--even if the job means sharing the reins with the man whose kiss she’s never forgotten.

A little R&R at a B&B…

Professional bull rider Will Cavanaugh was this close to his goal of becoming World Champion when an injury sidelined him. Spending the summer managing his grandfather’s guest ranch might please the team doctor, but working with Anne brings challenges Will never saw coming—like falling in love. But that doesn’t mean he’s giving up on his dream.

Battered and a bit disillusioned by life, Will and Anne return to the Silver Rose to repay old debts. To fall in love again. But only for the summer.

 

Or, maybe...for a lifetime.

  Black Friday.

The lines in Miami financier Jake Westin's world are crisp and easy to delineate: black and red, profit and loss, single and planning to stay that way. Until the day after Thanksgiving when Allison Jeffries—a woman he’s heard about for four and a half years but never met—calls to tell him the world they’ve shared from opposite sides of the country will never be the same.

Black ice.

Kenny Rydell—Jake's best friend and only link to the "bad ol' days" of his youth—and wife Pam died in a car accident on the way to a Sierra ski resort, leaving their son, Caleb, with his grandmother, who suffered a heart attack upon hearing the news.

Lives changed in a blink.

Caleb’s godparents—two grieving strangers who never imagined the worst-case scenario becoming a reality—must decide how to best care for the little boy they both love. The confirmed “rake” and the computer “geek” call a truce to survive the holidays, but no one expects them to fall in love --except, possibly Caleb.

How far would you go for the sake of a child?

“Sophie Love's ability to impart magic to her readers is exquisitely wrought in powerfully evocative phrases and descriptions….This is the perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

--Midwest Book Review (Diane Donovan re For Now and Forever)

IF ONLY FOREVER is book #4 in the bestselling romance series The Inn at Sunset Harbor, which begins with book #1, For Now and Forever—a free download!

35 year old Emily Mitchell has fled her job, apartment and ex-boyfriend in New York City for her father's historic, abandoned home on the coast of Maine, needing a change in her life and determined to make it a B&B. She had never expected, though, that her relationship with its caretaker, Daniel, would turn her life on its head.

Emily is still reeling from Daniel’s proposal. As all seems to finally fall into place in her life, she looks forward to an exciting engagement year ahead, from shopping for a venue and a wedding dress, to creating her invite list, to setting a date.

But all does not goes as planned. The endless events of the engagement year add more stress than joy, putting pressure on their relationship as they are forced to make hard choices. Adjusting to life as parents doesn’t make it any easier, as Chantelle runs into problems at school and as a custody battle looms over them. As Christmas and New Years approach, the stress is only compounded.

Meanwhile, as the B&B adds new guests and staff and as they find more priceless antiques, Emily discovers a shocking secret that just may bring her one step closer to finding her father.

Will she and Daniel get married? Or will the stress of the engagement break them apart forever?

IF ONLY FOREVER is book #4 in a dazzling new romance series that will make you laugh, cry, keep you turning pages late into the night—and make you fall in love with romance all over again.

Book #5 will be available soon.

“A very well written novel, describing the struggle of a woman (Emily) to find her true identity. The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”
