Coming March 11, 2014!
Creative and complicated, Jade McKinley felt like a weed in a rose garden growing up in Chapel Springs. When she left, she thought she’d never look back. But now, pregnant, alone, and broke, she has no other choice but to return.
The mayor of Chapel Springs, Daniel Dawson, has been an honorary member of the McKinley family for years. While his own home life was almost non-existent, Daniel fit right into the boisterous McKinley family. He’s loved Jade for years, but she always saw him as a big brother. Now that she’s back, his feelings are stronger than ever.
As Jade attempts to settle in, nothing feels right. God seems far away, she’s hiding secrets from her family, and she’s strangely attracted to the man who’s always called her “squirt." Finding her way home may prove more difficult than she imagined.

New Series Just Released!
I can't wait until Barefoot Summer releases! This is the 1st book of my new Chapel Springs Series. Set in a midwestern river town, this 4-book series will feature the close-knit McKinley family. I've fallen in love with the McKinleys, and I hope you will too! Each of the 4 adult siblings will be featured in his or her own romance--and let me tell you, the sparks are a-flying! Here's a sneak peek at Barefoot Summer:
"Hold-your-breath romance, heartache, and laugh-out-loud moments. It's more than a good read. It's a delight." --Lisa T. Bergren, best-selling author of Glamorous Illusions
In the years since her twin brother’s drowning, Madison McKinley has struggled to put it behind her. Despite the support of her close-knit family and her gratifying job as a veterinarian, the loss still haunts her. To find closure, Madison sets out to fulfill her brother’s dream of winning the town’s annual regatta. But first she has to learn to sail, and fast.
Beckett O’Reilly knows Madison is out of his league, but someone neglected to tell his heart. Now she needs his help—and he’ll give it, because he owes her far more than she’ll ever know.
Madison will do anything—even work with the infamous Beckett O’Reilly—to reach her goal. And as much as she’d like to deny it, the chemistry between them is electrifying. As summer wanes, her feelings for him begin to grow and a fledgling faith takes root in her heart.
But Beckett harbors a secret—one that will test the limits of their love and the depth of Madison’s faith. Can their new romance survive summer’s challenges? And will achieving her brother’s dream give Madison the peace she desperately seeks?
Two of my previously out of print novellas are available on ebook--and bargain priced!
A foolish stunt in high school left Brianna VanAllen questioning her self worth for the past five years. She didn't expect to dig up those painful memories when she returned home for her high school reunion. But, paired with Jake Volez on a project at her parents' ranch, Brianna must face the issue of forgiveness. Will she have the courage to put her heart at risk again?
Callie Andersen never expected to be taking a solo honeymoon in Maui. But she just wants to lick her wounds after being jilted at the altar. Alex Harrigan, activities director for Harrigan's Cove, knows the best bandage for a broken heart is activity. And when Callie notes the lack of children's activities, he's happy to put her work gathering ideas. But when he starts to lose his heart, he wonders if he will soon be nursing his own wounds.
