Crazy Happy Hearts Available Now! Release Date: August 13, 2014
Eight-seven-year-old Tillie watches everyone's comings and goings from her porch in her Jersey shore town. When her dear departed best friend's never-married daughter Susan retires from Manhattan and returns to her childhood home across the street, Auntie T's primed to do more than watch the former Miss Independence. Kenny doubts his mother's claim that Susan needs a handyman, but jumps at the chance to see the girl next door, the one he never forgot. Still, he'd be a fool to risk his heart after she left without even a backward glance. Susan is adrift in the home town she left decades ago, a place of memories, and possibly regrets, until she reconnects with Kenny--widower, father, and so much more man than the high school boy she remembered. Does she dare to reveal a secret she, her mother, and Tillie have kept all these years?
May Day Magic Available on Amazon; General Release May 1, 2013
School nurse and single mother Diane Avery is too busy caring for her children and everyone else's to accept she is due for loving care herself. When her back seizes in front of hunky nursery owner Marc Stafford, Diane finds his offer to tend her ailment so amusing, she laughs away his suggestion…only to discover her back spasm has evaporated. But Marc is not to be dissuaded. And surprises keep coming for Diane and those close to her on this May Day weekend as May baskets pop on a number of door knobs. Before the sun sets, Diane will find the courage to uncover the most astonishing surprise of all.

Under A Halloween Moon Available Now
Single mother Annika lives a safe existence centered around her five-year-old daughter, a little imp who is growing up faster than Annika wants to admit. Cameron is a widower working constant overtime to cover for a partner on leave, which leaves no time for his five-year-old daughter, let alone a social life. But then Cameron has no interest in the women focused on his long eyelashes, the fit of his jeans, and the size of his paycheck, and Annika has steered clear of the turmoil of relationships ever since her divorce. Are the two destined to remain single? Perhaps, until the Halloween moon when Cameron crosses paths with the bewitching single mother of his daughter's new best friend, and a weekend of mischief, masquerade and magic convinces Annika to take a chance on love.

If Dream Man never comes knocking, at least she'll own the door. That's 28-year-old paralegal Karen's new plan, anyhow, to buy her own home, and the reason she's been working every weekend-- until she bends to her best friend's pressure to spend a Saturday at the wave pool. Determined not to be derailed by another dead-end relationship, she avoids looking at the cute curly-haired guy-his friends call him Spence-- carousing out in the waves.

When she manages to stand and open her eyes, the world has disappeared. She sees only Spence surrounded by dancing stars. Has she been knocked silly, or is he gazing right back at her?
