Petal, Georgia: Small town, second chances and sizzling romance.

At twenty-eight, Lily Travis never imagined she’d be back living with her mom and dealing with her messed-up little brother. Yet that’s exactly where she finds herself, seven long years after she left Petal, Georgia—and the boy who broke her heart—in the dust. Her first order of business? Getting her ex to help turn her brother’s life around.

If he happens to notice just how much she hasn’t been missing him, all the better.

As a teacher, Nathan Murphy is used to dealing with the unexpected, but nothing prepares him for Lily—looking like a smokin’ hot vintage pinup come to life—strolling through his door and right back into his heart. He always regretted the way things ended between them; this could be his chance to make up for past mistakes.

Lily can’t resist Nathan’s Southern-honey charm, or the way he makes her melt when she’s in his arms. She fell for him once—falling for him again could destroy her. But it could also mean finding love in the last place she ever expected: home

COUNT ON ME is now available once again!


A town divided. A family torn apart.

Is one love strong enough to overcome it all?

Caroline Mendoza left home to become a lawyer with one goal in mind: prove her father’s innocence. Now she’s back, and nothing will stop her from uncovering the truth—not the folks of Petal, who have their own ideas about the case, not her siblings and definitely not Royal Watson, who should probably stand trial for being indecently and undeniably hot.

Royal has his hands full with his organic farm, but the moment he bumps into Caroline he comes up with a hundred new ways to keep his hands busy. And when their passion grows into real love, the future Royal always wanted is finally just within reach.

But the more they dig into the past, the more it becomes clear someone in Petal doesn’t want them to find answers…and will do anything to make sure the truth remains buried. Including putting an end to their investigation once and for all.
