By the Bay Series

A small town series with a coastal twist.

Book One

The Choices I've Made

Twelve years ago, he drove away with my heart in his hands.
I’ve moved on since then.

Or so I thought.

Growing up in a small town, there weren’t too many options when it came to friends. But, even in a sea of a million, I’d always choose Jake Jameson.

I felt safe with him. Safe with my secrets, my dreams and eventually — my heart. I thought we’d have forever together.

That was a long time ago.

I thought I’d forgotten those piercing blue eyes and the sound of his laugh. I tried to obliterate the memory of his touch from my mind.

But, one single glance, as he stands at my door, twelve years later, and I’m suddenly transported back to a simpler time when love was easy, and my heart was whole.

The problem?

I’m marrying his best friend.

“I tried, Molly. God, how I tried.”

“Tried what?” 

“I tried to forget you. But I never could. I tried to forget this place and all it represented, but the memories never faded. You never faded.”

Book Two

The Scars I Bare

My life was adrift…
Until I found her.

Broken and bruised from an accident that nearly took my life, Cora was the nurse who cared for me. She not only tended to my wounds, but for a brief time, she healed my heart as well.

But, our lives were destined to take different paths and I never thought I’d see her again. Three years later when she moves into my small town, I can’t help but wonder if the universe is trying to tell me something.

Cora is seeking a new beginning. For years, I’ve been wandering the streets of this town, searching for something too.

Maybe she’s the answer to my prayers.

Available in Kindle Unlimited.

Book Three

The Lies I've Told

I thought I had it all figured out…
And then he showed up.

Growing up in a small town, I had one singular goal — get the heck out. After high school graduation, I never planned on coming back.

But, sometimes life can throw some serious curveballs, and when I’m fired from my job, I go to the one safe place I can think of — my family’s inn.

And that’s where I meet him.

Aiden Fisher is a British artist who has taken up residence across the hallway. He’s wicked hot, a huge flirt and has one of the sexiest accents I’ve ever heard.

Suddenly the idea of this small town doesn’t sound so horrible.

But can I trust a man I just met… with my heart?

“Guard your heart, Millie,” he’d said to me. 

I let out a pained laugh as I stared down at the beautiful sculpture. 

Too late, I thought. 

Too damn late.

Book Four

The Mistakes I've Made

Keep your friends close…
And your enemies closer.

I knew Leilani Hart was trouble from the minute she stepped foot into our small town.

With her big city ideas and hotel heiress reputation, I know she’ll turn our picturesque island into a tacky tourist trap if given the opportunity.

She’ll have to go through me first.

From our first meeting, we’re like fire and ice, and I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to pin her down and melt some of those frigid layers right off.

I’ve never believed in love, but for her, I just might be willing to risk it all.

Even if it means falling… for the enemy.

Available in Kindle Unlimited.

Book Five

The Secrets We Keep

Passions ignite when a small-town cop falls for the one woman he shouldn’t in this fake dating romance.

Living in Ocracoke was a dream come true—until my husband died.
I haven’t set foot on that island since.
It’s been five years, and I thought I had moved on.
But when my boyfriend suddenly drops to one knee, it’s the only place I want to be.

I thought I was there to say goodbye, but I found him instead.

Macon Green is an arrogant small-town cop with quite a reputation.
When I find his ex-wife publicly humiliating him, I can’t help but intervene.
I slide my hand into his, and just like that, we’re dating.

It wasn’t supposed to be real.

And I definitely wasn’t supposed to stay.
Yet, the more we pretend, the more it starts to feel undeniably… right.

Perhaps this is where I was supposed to be all along.
