Contemporary Romance - Fresh Beginnings: Michael and Delaney

Here's the second of the two Contemporary Romance books I co-authored with Colette Cabot. This was such a fun project to co-author with someone else. Let me know what you guys think of the story. If you enjoy it we may do more Fresh Beginnings stories like this one. :)

Laney Sheppard doesn’t want pity, and she doesn’t want to be labeled. All she wants is to escape the tragedy that haunts her dreams and leaves her stumbling by day in a waking nightmare of loneliness and regret. It is this wish, along with a lifelong desire to be near the sea that spurs Laney to move from her comfortable hometown of Conrad, Iowa to the small fishing village of Garibaldi, Oregon.

While working as a waitress at The Boathouse restaurant, Laney begins to make a new life for herself in Garibaldi – but it isn’t anything like she’d imagined. From exchanging witty repartee with the colorful clientele of The Boathouse, to acclimatizing to the weather and learning how to sail, nothing is as simple as it seems– including Michael Barragan.

Rude and belligerent, the solitary young fisherman repels everyone around him with his irritable demeanor. Laney, however, has no intentions of allowing anyone, especially Michael, to intimidate her. When their personalities collide, Laney and Michael discover a passion that neither had expected and a love that threatens to tear them apart. Can Laney and Michael help each other come to terms with the past; or are some people, like the sea, too tumultuous to tame?

Contemporary Romance - The Day The Siren Stopped

A while back I co-authored 2 contemporary romance books with an author friend, Colette Cabot. This was a lot of fun and a slight deviation from the normal New Adult romance books I normally write. Here's the first of the two:

Kathy Mae had endured years of dismissals, poverty and abuse for reasons that were never understandable to her. Since a small child, she has always been told how useless and worthless she was; and growing up she believed it. Now, nearly 30, she has decided to stop living that life and make a new one for herself.

She checks out a self-help book from the local library that is supposed to change her life, and boy does it! With stubborn determination she finds herself with a new job, a life, and more surprising than anything, a new man.

This intriguing man sees her for herself, for what she truly is... beautiful.

Kathy finds herself in the throes of passion one minute and running for her life from a tornado the next! Her life becomes a whirlwind of adventure that leads her to discover an unbelievable secret about herself. Along the way she boldly faces her fears and learns about who she truly is.

An enduring romance story about love, struggle and eternal hope.
