The Last Carolina Sister
Book 3 now available
In Magnolia, North Carolina, love might be waiting right next door…
Meredith Ventner knows a wounded creature when she sees one. Though her temporary new neighbor may be—on the surface at least—a successful, drop-dead gorgeous doctor, she recognizes the deep hurt Ryan Sorensen is carrying, and it’s catnip to her soul. But even though Meredith is the youngest, scrappiest, and single-est of Magnolia’s most famous sisters, she’s committed to expanding the animal shelter on her newly inherited farm. She can’t waste her energy on a man who’s only passing through town.
Ryan is hoping that after a month of small-town living he’ll be healed enough to return to his busy ER. His injured leg isn’t half as painful as his guilt from the tragedy he’s trying to forget. Yet somehow, helping feisty tenderhearted Meredith care for her menagerie is making him question his career-first priorities. Here in this quirky small town another future is coming into view, but can he change his life, and open his heart, to claim it?
A Carolina Valentine
A Valentine’s Day wedding, a fake girlfriend and a bachelor auction—what could go wrong?
After an unexpected—but heated—New Year’s kiss, Dr. Paul Thorpe has done his utmost to keep things from turning awkward with nurse Aimee Baker, his colleague. But when she asks him to participate in the bachelor auction at the hospital’s fundraising gala, he takes his chances and agrees on one condition: that Aimee accompany him to his brother’s Valentine’s Day wedding as his pretend girlfriend. What he doesn’t tell her is that his ex-fiancée will also be in attendance.
Aimee agrees, knowing Paul’s participation in the auction will raise the money needed for a mobile health clinic. And as much as she’s looking forward to spending a weekend with Paul, she’s also certain it won’t go anywhere. Everyone knows that Paul doesn’t date, and after Aimee’s divorce, that’s fine with her… or so she tells herself. But as the weekend goes on, their fake relationship is beginning to feel all too real, despite the limit on their time together. Will this Valentine’s Day wedding date make it past the weekend?
