I cannot tell you how excited I am for the launch of my new series Hart’s Boardwalk. I love The One Real Thing’s Jessica and Cooper, and in many ways Jessica reminds me of Joss from On Dublin Street. Of course this only made me nostalgic for readers’ favorites Joss and Braden.

Joss and Braden Carmichael are blissfully married living in their townhouse on Dublin Street with their two beautiful children. It’s a life Joss never expected to have, and one she’s grateful for every day.

But… what if she never met Braden and Ellie Carmichael on that fateful day when she was only twenty-two years old…

When Joss is asked to write a story about how her life might have turned out if a pivotal moment in it never happened she thinks of the day she met both Braden and Ellie Carmichael. If she never met them, just where might she have ended up? Joss believes no matter where life might take her it would inevitably lead her to Braden. But what if she is thirty instead of twenty-two when they meet? How would she feel about risking her heart then? And even if she is older and wiser and ready to fall madly in love, what if too much has happened to Braden to make him the man that would risk his heart to save hers?

Will time be their enemy… or is it possible that two souls are meant for one another in any reality?

Stars Over Castle Hill is an alternate reality novella of a romance that captured the hearts of readers all over the world. Joss and Braden are back with a story that is just as emotional, passionate and sexy as their first!





Welcome to Hartwell, a quiet seaside escape where uncovering old secrets could lead one woman to discover the meaning of a love that lasts…

While Doctor Jessica Huntington engages with the inmates at the women’s correctional facility where she works, she’s always careful to avoid emotional attachments in her personal life. Loss and betrayal taught her that lesson long ago. But when she comes across a set of old love letters in the prison’s library and visits the picturesque town of Hartwell to deliver them to their intended recipient, she finds herself unable to resist the town’s charm—and her attraction to the sexy owner of a local bar proves equally hard to deny.

Since his divorce from his unfaithful ex-wife, Cooper Lawson has focused on what really matters: his family and the boardwalk pub they’ve owned for generations. But the first time Jessica steps into his bar, Cooper is beyond tempted to risk his heart on her. Yet as their attraction grows hotter and Jessica remains stubbornly closed off, he begins to realize it will take more than just passion to convince her there’s only one real thing in life worth fighting for….

Out Sept 6th 2016 in ebook and paperback from Berkley (Penguin Random House).
