My first historical romance Beneath a Michigan Moon, part of The Great Lakes Lighthouse Brides Collection from Barbour Publishers is now available!
Lighthouses have long been the symbol of salvation, warning sailors away from dangerous rocks and shallow waters.
Along the Great Lakes, America’s inland seas, lighthouses played a vital role in the growth of our nation. They shepherded settlers traveling by water to places that had no roads. These beacons of light required constant tending even in remote and often dangerous places. Brave men and women battled the elements and loneliness to keep the lights shining. Their sacrifice kept goods and immigrants moving. Seven romances set between 1883 and 1911 bring hope to these lonely keepers and love to weary hearts.
In Beneath a Michigan Moon, travel back to 1885 to the New Presque Isle Lighthouse on Lake Huron. Here, you’ll meet Ava Ryan, whose father has recently passed leaving her alone, and ill, to tend the lighthouse on a trial basis through the Lighthouse Commission Board. She’s surviving fine on her own until logging foreman Benjamin Colfax visits, wanting to climb the tower to determine his crew’s best cutting route. She rejects his request many times, but he’s determined to get what he needs. He senses something amiss in Ava’s determination to remain reclusive. Can he get her to open up, or will she keep herself locked away?
My latest contemporary romance How to Stir a Baker’s Heart is in the final editing stages with my publisher and is set to release April 2019. This story is book two in my Cadence of Acadia series set in coastal Maine. Here you’ll meet Blake Hartford, a blueberry farmer, and Olivia Hudson, a former mental health therapist turned baker. Set in the quaint town of Stone Harbor, Blake and Olivia meet under unusual circumstances and discover things about themselves they never knew. Readers will also reunite with Huck and Arianne from How to Charm a Beekeeper’s Heart. Preorder links to come.
What else am I working on?
