I thought it would be nice to post books here as well as in my NL. That way you can find them whenever you want to. You can also go back and check out older books as well. Just click the image to check out the book!


She's sworn off love. He wants to give his daughter a loving home. Neither of them want to risk their heart. It should be a perfect marriage.

After her fiancé dumped her just weeks before the wedding, elementary school teacher Rebecca “Rusty” Matthews vowed never to fall in love again. She’s completely happy with her life in small-town Sweetapple Falls, Oregon. If marriage and a family isn’t part of God’s plan for her life, she’s fine with that. She has her work, her faith, her friends, and chocolate. Who needs romance?

Reluctantly divorced mechanic Tom Davis suddenly becomes a full-time father again when his ex-wife leaves their ten-year-old daughter, Ava, with him. Tom wants to help his beloved child settle back into life in Sweetapple Falls, but it seems his ex-wife was right—he only understands machines, not emotions. Managing Ava’s moods and outbursts after her life is torn apart for the second time are beyond him. He turns to the one person his daughter trusts. Her Sunday school teacher, Rusty.

A marriage of convenience will give Ava the loving, stable home she needs. But will Tom lose them both when he falls in love with the woman he married, who could just be his ideal bride?


The relationship is fake. But the sparks are real. Can these best friends rekindle a second chance at first love? Or will they both end up burned?

Right here at the Minden Fire Department is exactly where I belong. But when I became Captain Storm, apparently it meant I needed a wife. Or at least, that’s what my mom’s friends think.

When Krystal comes back to town, I don’t know what to think. She was my best friend in high school. The truth is I loved her–as much as any eighteen-year-old kid could have. I think she loved me, too. But she left, anyway.

I really do understand why. She had dreams to chase in Hollywood. How could I deny her that?

She’s here now, though. For eight weeks. And she’s taking over the fire department charity auction while her mom recovers from her fall, which means working with me.

I know we’re just friends. She’s going back to LA after the auction, but maybe her presence could get my mom’s friends off my back for a minute. We’ll just let people assume there is more to our friendship… No harm, no foul. I really could use the break from my personal matchmakers’ attention.

And I won’t say no to a little extra time with Krystal. I’m probably torturing myself. Friends is all we’ll ever be. Even a fake relationship can’t change the fact that she was The One Who Got Away.


Can love be found while convincing a surly old man to keep his ranch?

His grandfather’s ranch saved his life. Weston Wade is well aware of that. Which makes it all the more painful that his grandfather now wants to clean it up so it can be sold off piece by piece. Weston thought he was moving there to resurrect the ranch. Instead, he meets the woman who will change his life forever.

Ruby Garza has witnessed so much pain as a social worker. All she wants is to make a genuine difference in kids who need a second chance. Wade Ranch would be the perfect location for her to accomplish that by starting a program for at-risk teens. Unfortunately, she hasn't secured permission from the ranch's owner yet. If she doesn't get his consent soon, all of her work for the past two years will be for nothing. To her surprise, Weston Wade becomes her greatest ally in this endeavor. But the connection between them doesn't end there...
