Thanks to EQ for the chance to share!

This blurb is for: The Sheriff's Son - my first book, recently re-released in new formats:

Why is Tanner Jones back in town?

Seven-year-old Kevin has been a handful for single mom Sarah Lindstrom. And when the new sheriff shows up holding Kevin by the scruff of his neck for egging his car, she knows she's lost control.

Sheriff Tanner Jones has no idea Kevin is his son. He lost the right to that information when he abandoned Sarah soon after graduation. Just because he's back in town doesn't mean he can waltz into her life—and Kevin's. But Sarah can't deny the feelings she still has for Tanner, or how her son is benefiting from his attention.

When Tanner finds out the truth, what will he do?


Thanks for reading! The Sheriff's Son is still available in its original e-book format at your favorite e-tailers, including Amazon, and in the new Larger Print and e-book version exclusively at Harlequin:

Random Acts of Kindness by Nan O'Berry

Dan Rodgers, the local handyman, seems lost without a wife. When Reverend Finlay preaches a sermon on random acts of kindness, Miss Muriel Lowe sets out to find him one. Her intentions focus on Jocelyn Lankford, Rebel's Crossroads librarian. A little maneuvering after service and before long Dan and Jocelyn are an item.

Well suited for one another, Jocelyn is content to allow romance to enter her life until little Charlie West comes clean about Miss Muriel's payment and how he was instructed to run into her in order for her and Dan to meet. Humiliated, Jocelyn has a few choice words for the local busy body, but she doubts Dan really loves her.

Can Dan convince her that his love is real, or will Miss Muriel's matchmaking ruin their budding romance?

Emily Bradshaw waited over twenty years to see Connor again…

When her childhood friend, Connor Walsh, returns home to see his ailing father, Emily is elated to be reunited with the handsome man who moved to London so many years ago. But excitement fades to disappointment when he doesn’t remember her—or their first kiss. With her crush on Connor still in full swing, she’s determined to enjoy the short time he’s in Fermosa Bay, even though she knows her heart will break when he returns to his life in London.

When Connor receives news that his biological father is terminally ill, he returns to Fermosa Bay, Australia.

With memories of his childhood tucked fondly in the back of his mind, returning to the small, coastal town leaves him to wonder how life would have been if his mother had never taken him away. Would he have been married and had children? Perhaps with Emily Bradshaw…

Secrets from long ago begin to unfold…

As Connor and his father grow closer, Connor learns his parents have a broken love story of their own. Will the echoes of the past lure him into staying, maybe for good? Or will he relive his parents’ tragic story and flee to London?

Walking away from a real chance at true love…
