Little known fact about me… I’m an author too.
Are you a reader? I have a collection of Sweet Romance and Sweet Suspense books available for readers at the current time.
Twenty-two year old, Marigold Matthews, can’t wait to return home to Heartland Cove County and get started on all the fabulous plans she’s made during her four long years at college. She’ll take over the family farm, start her own organic edible flower business, and hopefully find a way to help train her do-nothing brother, Ben, providing both of them with a job and an income. Then, she’ll finally marry Walter, her high-school sweetheart and live happily ever after in her picture-perfect paradise.
All her well-laid plans fly out the window when her father informs her he’s going on a surprise European vacation and leaving the farm in Ben’s incompetent hands. To make matters worse Walter can’t understand why she’s upset because, turns out he always thought she’d join him running his family-run hardware store after they were married, something Marigold has no desire to do.
The final straw shows up in the form of Mace Winthrop, an arrogant, competitive, top-of-the-class student Marigold clashed with back in college. Mace has taken a job with a huge farming conglomerate and shows up in Heartland Cove with a mission to snatch up independent farmlands, like hers and transform the beautiful Heartland Cove into a unicrop, moneymaking wasteland.
Marigold has her hands full teaching Ben the ropes, tending her own acres, trying to work things out with Walter and keeping her guard up against the charming and persistent powers of Mace Winthrop. Part of her wants to just run away and reinvent herself somewhere new but Heartland Cove has a hold of her heart that just won’t let go.
Can the truth mend a broken heart?
Darcy McGee never wants to see his girlfriend, Treasure, again. She skipped town without a word, leaving him with a broken heart and enough pain to fill a book with his poems. Four years later, he’s a new man. He’s got a rock-hard body, a hot girlfriend, an exciting job and walls around his heart no one can get past.
Treasure Mercado had no intention of returning to Heartland Cove, not after what she did to her boyfriend, Darcy. When a run-in with mobsters sends her fleeing home, he’s the only person she can turn to. Too bad his love for her has turned into smoldering hatred while her feelings for him are strong as ever. Will the truth about why she left be enough to mend Darcy’s broken heart and convince him to help save her life?
When Julian, an artist and the love of Emma’s life, dies, Emma loses herself in one dark canvas after another finding, underneath the layers of paint, a tormented dreamlike place where they can still be together.
But retreating from reality comes with a price.
Desperate and running out of money to pay her rent, Emma is forced to open up her locked-down existence to take on off-duty Police Officer Grayson Tate. He’s opinionated, arrogant and completely charming with a burning desire to learn how to paint, specifically from Emma.
Having to deal with Grayson sends Emma’s dormant emotions into a tail-spin. How can she possibly fall in love with Grayson without betraying Julian and the love they shared?
When Emma becomes a key suspect in an art fraud ring, she is thrust out of the safety of her studio and must take charge of her feelings and her future.
