Welcome to my world. I'm so glad you're here!

I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author, and write two series of small-town romance and women's fiction, with characters you'll wish lived in your neighborhood. In fact, readers have said they'd like to move to the towns I write about. And you can move there too--sort of--by reading the books. 



Please click on the Serendipity tab for my new series set in Serendipity, Indiana. This series revolves around members and friends of the Standish family, their Christmas tree farm, and the little town in Indiana where things are never quite what they seem--in a good way! Each Serendipity tale ends with a reminder of the magic of Love. I think you'll be happily surprised with this new series. 





Please click on the Legend tab for my McClain titles set in the beautiful foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Each of my Legend, Tennessee titles has a McClain as either the main hero or heroine. McClains can be stubborn and overbearing, but deep down they're all about  family and community. What's not to love? 

All my stories are "sweet" or "wholesome" romance. We like to refer to it as just enough spice, but the lid's still on the jar.




New Serendipity, Indiana Release ~ Once Upon  a Time

Taylor Kincaid has big plans for her life. Falling in love with the mysterious new shop owner in the small town she grew up in isn't one of them. 

You may have met Taylor (and her twin, Hannah) in Serendipity, Indiana book #2, EMILY'S DREAMS. Now the twins have graduated college and are ready to leave Serendipity forever... The only problem is an absence of jobs in their fields. 

They decide to move back home temporarily, living with their parents again, and taking a little sabbatical from all the hard work (and partying) of college. 

But Marcus Kincaid has different expectations of his daughters. The free ride is at an end, and they have to get jobs in Serendipity if they expect to live at home. 

Hannah accidentally volunteers to work at the Standish Family Christmas Tree Farm with their sister Emily (Kincaid) Standish. But Taylor will float resumes in the little town, and find a job that will pad her bank account, and be easy to leave when the right employment opportunity comes along. 

It's a great plan, until she steps into the antiques shop on the town square, and meets its handsome, enigmatic new owner. Now leaving may be more complicated than staying.


Sweet romance, "coincidences" that might be more than that, and a love that survives the unthinkable come together in this new Serendipity, Indiana tale.

Beach Brides! Fun in the summer sun!

Twelve heartwarming, sweet novellas linked by a unifying theme.
You’ll want to read each one!


Twelve friends from the online group, Romantic Hearts Book Club, decide to finally meet in person during a destination Caribbean vacation to beautiful Enchanted Island. While of different ages and stages in life, these ladies have two things in common: 1) they are diehard romantics, and 2) they’ve been let down by love. As a wildly silly dare during her last night on the island, each heroine decides to stuff a note in a bottle addressed to her “dream hero” and cast it out to sea! Sending a message in a bottle can’t be any crazier than online or cell phone dating, or posting personal ads! And, who knows? One of these mysterious missives might actually lead to love…

Join Meg, Tara, Nina, Clair, Jenny, Lisa, Hope, Kim, Rose, Lily, Faith and Amy, as they embark on the challenge of a lifetime: risking their hearts to accomplish their dreams.
