One Warm Winter
Book 2 Sunny and Warm Series
Adopted as a child by a tech billionaire, Wynter Bates knows nothing about her origins—or the world beyond being privileged, sheltered, and lonely. But she won’t let anything stop her from investigating who she is. Especially after a high-profile scandal involving her father’s past lands her on an island retreat under bodyguard Cullen Whelan's protection—in the guise of being his girlfriend . . .
A former military intelligence officer, Cullen figures protecting a pampered heiress will be easy. Posing as a couple is the safest strategy—until Wyn’s persistence and vulnerability spark his curiosity—and a reckless attraction neither can afford. More complicated, what Cullen knows about her past is a truth he can't tell. But as they get closer, wrenching revelations will force them to decide what to trust, who to forgive, and whether their growing love is enough to risk a future together.
Book One Sunny and Warm Series
When trauma shapes your life, how do you risk making a change—and finding love?
As a child, Sunny Gibson was abandoned by her mentally-ill mother, who left no trace behind. Now a social worker, Sunny is dedicated to helping children find loving homes—though she's still haunted by the past. So when she finds clues that her newest charge might be her younger sister, she sets out to track down the little girl’s mother. But the powerful attorney she needs for the search is proving as inexplicable and distant as he is irresistible . . .
From pro football player to high-powered lawyer, Julian King has succeeded at everything he’s aspired to. But he still needs to make partner. Not only does he know nothing about family law, Sunny can’t even pay him. If only her irrepressible caring and sweetness wasn't drawing him much too close—or making him hunger to keep her in his life. And as wrenching remembered pain on both sides threatens to shatter the delicate trust he and Sunny begin to forge, they will need more than courage to face down their pasts—and seize forever together.
Book two Love and Hope Series
When mistakes haunt your every choice, how do you find the courage to follow your own heart?
An unstable childhood and a bad marriage have left Nova unable to trust anyone—especially herself. She'd do anything for her young son, but feels she'll never be a good enough mother. She's got major talent as a stylist and makeup artist, but big-time success would mean leaving the safety of Martha’s Vineyard and the only family she has left. Still, she needs to kick-start her life in a new direction. The last thing she needs is her childhood frenemy, Tanner Brennan, confusing her even more.
An Ex-Army Ranger, Tanner was looking for peace and routine when he came back home to Martha's Vineyard. Scrapping with Nova reminds him of the hopeful boy he was, before secrets and guilt closed him off. But there's no way he can fight her raw vulnerability—or his longing to become part of her life. And as their all-too-fragile bond is threatened in ways they never expected, he and Nova have only one chance to finally come to terms with the past—and find the future in each other.
