Falling For You
Sometimes love finds you whether you want it to or not …
Grace Clark is a star at her job as an art director at Boston’s biggest advertising firm. But inside she’s still mourning the loss of her sister two years ago. Losing Mia and a failed engagement have been enough to keep her heart on lockdown ever since.
Luke Arnold is tired of relationships that don’t go anywhere. Usually women are all over him, but it’s been years since he’s met someone he could really fall for.
But when he sees Grace from across the room at the Redview Lodge, he can’t keep his eyes off her. They meet in the New Hampshire mountains over Thanksgiving, and they find in one another something that neither of them expected.
Christmas at the Lake
Sometimes love gets forgotten …
Hugely successful Lexi Stuart is used to guys pursuing her, but for all the wrong reasons. Sure, she’s beautiful and rich, but the men in her life never seem to want anything more serious than just sex. It’s a sad reality she’s become used to.
As a code writer in Silicon Valley, Adam Hunt doesn’t have to worry about money. And as a heartthrob in general, he doesn’t need to worry about attracting women, either. But when he meets Lexi during a Christmas holiday in Lake Tahoe, he’s floored that she won’t give him the time of day after one wild night together.
Now, this sports bum is about to take Lexi on the ride of her life. All she needs to do is hang on!
Sometimes love is right in front of you …
Sarah Kesley is just trying to get by. After barely scraping a diploma in the pre-med program at UC Berkeley, she’s left with few options for medical school. Now she’s stuck in a dead end job, trying to figure out what she should do next. Love is the last thing on her mind.
Ethan Pierce is a good friend. Such a good friend, in fact, that Sarah is starting to notice him in a way she hasn’t before. Those late night car rides, those meetings in the park, those long, quiet talks. Suddenly Sarah is seeing Ethan in a different light.
When they both go on a last-minute trip to Paris, it’s obvious that things are starting to change between them. And what could be better than a new love in the city of lights?
But there are people to be reckoned with at home, and one in particular could undermine their love altogether.
Lost in Paradise
Sometimes lost is the best place to be …
Juliet Easton has spent three lonely years getting over her failed marriage. She tells herself that she’s better off alone, a lie she has gradually come to believe.
Eli Owens is still heartbroken over his own divorce, and no matter how many women he takes home from the bar, he can’t get away from the pain.
But when they both find themselves stranded in Cabo San Lucas, they discover the love their broken hearts have been yearning for.
Sometimes a little adventure is the perfect cure for a broken heart …
Margaret Ackerman has been mourning her husband’s passing for over a year. Now, she’s decided to fulfill the bucket list he left for her before he died. She’s found herself in Paris, jumping out of airplanes, and now in Peru to see the majestic city of Machu Picchu.
Liam Johnston has always wanted to hike the Inca Trail, but now that he’s finally saved up enough cash to do it, he finds himself alone on the journey.
The two of them will experience this wild adventure together, and create more memories than either of them imagined.
But will an unexpected loss ruin their chances at finding love again?
I am happy to call the San Francisco Bay Area home, where I live with my husband, two kids, one dog and three cats. I started writing at an early age, but have only been writing novels for the past five years. I love the idea of love conquering all, and that is what drove me to begin the Great Escapes series, where the reader follows couples meeting up in exotic locations around the world. In this series, each book is a stand-alone, and each can be read in any order.
But readers, be forewarned, there is a healthy amount of steam in these books!
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy Great Escapes!
I’d love to hear from you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments or questions!
