Sweetest Thing$14.99Add to cart
A true to life fairy tale and happily ever after dream come true that will leave you feeling warm and happy long after it’s over.
My mother wrote a young adult novel that eventually became a Hollywood blockbuster hit. Somehow, during production of the movie, I became friends with the star. Heath Vick was Hollywood’s favorite leading man–a heartthrob, for sure.
We instantly hit it off, but he was in a long-term relationship, so we ended up being friends. Then, out of the blue, Heath decided to leave her and set his sights on me. He was rich and famous, and he assumed he would have my undivided attention the second he wanted it. But by the time that happened, my heart already belonged to someone else.
Katie Klein followed her brother, Mac, to Seattle, WA. She was enjoying her career and life there when a chance encounter connected her with super-star actor, Heath Vick. He was every girl’s dream come true; famous, wealthy, handsome, and now–available. When Heath took an interest in Katie, she quickly realized that Heath didn’t have much to offer beyond those temporary, worldly things.
Justin Teague was one of Mac’s teammates on the Seattle Seahawks. Much like Heath, he had wealth, fame, and fortune. But he wasn’t interested in women who were interested in that.
Katie and Justin had been friends for quite some time, but a simple sequence of events leads them to realize they both wanted something much more than a friendship.
See You In Seattle$14.99Add to cart
A lovely, heartwarming story of a man who was so focused on his career that there was only one woman in the world who could distract him from it in the best way possible.
Mac Klein had made a series of disciplined life choices. He was now thirty years old and a successful professional athlete. He lived in a beautiful mansion in Seattle with plenty of room to surround himself with family and friends. He devoted all his time and energy to his career, and he had no interest in starting a serious relationship with a woman.
He certainly would never think of looking up his childhood crush on social media so he could contact her in an effort to reconnect. Mac would never do that. He wasn’t even the social media type. His sister, Katie, was, but she wouldn’t do something as bold as reaching out to Morgan Lake on his behalf (and without his permission).
Or maybe she would. After all, sometimes a little family interference was necessary when love was on the line. Mac and Morgan first met nearly 20 years earlier in Nebraska. Morgan’s father was the head coach at the college Mac’s uncle was playing at. The two would play together on the sidelines when Mac’s family came to visit. There were hints of a connection even back then, but age and distance prevented anything from developing.
Mac became a successful athlete in the NFL. Morgan had been married to another star NFL player, but he tragically passed, leaving her the single mother of a young girl. Mac was too focused on his career to ever consider a relationship, but thankfully his sister was pushy enough to set the wheels in motion. When Mac and Morgan finally reconnect, the embers of those childhood flames quickly grow into a romance that was truly destined to happen.

Just Like Romeo And Juliet But With A Happy Ending$14.99Add to cart
Lines had been drawn and sides had been taken decades ago. The Castro and King families did not interact with the Elliot family. Those bridges had been burned, and none of the Bank Street crew talked about it. They never even ate at the same restaurant or shopped at the same store.
Each family had a stake in Galveston, but they lived without supporting each other or interacting in any way. A romantic match between members of these feuding families would be impossible. It wouldn’t just be frowned upon, it was absolutely forbidden. Which is why two of them could never fall in love. It’s a good thing love doesn’t play by the rules.
Anne Rose Kennedy learned about her biological family when she was 20 years old. She had grown up in a loving environment and was happy with her life. But she was also curious about her roots.
She began traveling to Galveston Island to work at her grandparent’s restaurant and get to know them better. Those trips and experiences were priceless to Anne Rose, and to top it off she was falling in love with Will Castro.
Anne Rose had no idea that there was a long-standing conflict between the Elliots and Castros/Kings. She had no idea that a romance between her and Will would be forbidden. But ultimately they could not deny their love for one another and would use that love as the catalyst to heal the rift between the families, proving that love conquers all.
Secret Rooms And Stolen Kisses$14.99Add to cart
How do you know when you’ve met the one? For some, it’s love at first sight. But things don’t always work like that. Sometimes people take time getting to know one another before sparks begin to fly. And people can even fall in love with someone they once considered their enemy. Tara Castro finds herself getting all caught up in the magic of discovering a secret room and falling madly in love with someone she initially despised. Is it possible for her to find a soulmate in someone she once thought was heartless? She wouldn’t expect to do that, but stranger things have happened. Tara was living in an apartment above a former jewelry store, just across the street from her father’s gym on Bank Street. In fact, it was the same apartment her parents lived in when they first got married. She grew up in that neighborhood, and it was her dream to open a dance studio and art gallery where the jewelry store had once been. Her plans seemed perfect and she was ready to pitch them to the new owner of the building, Trey Harper. It would be their first time to meet and nothing went as planned. Tara’s first impression of Trey was that of a heartless businessman who didn’t seem to care for the dreams or lives of those around him. Though she was discouraged and somewhat hopeless about her dreams coming true, Tara persevered. As time passed, the discouragement and distrust morphed into sparks and the wonderment of true love. She would soon discover God had greater plans for her than she had ever imagined, and along the way she would uncover some secrets the building had been hiding for years.
