Hooray! I’m finally adding a sweet romance series that can be read for holidays other than Christmas! It was a hard decision, but ultimately, I’d like to have some nice romance stories for my readers to have year ’round, not just in December.
I’ve got a lot of books started and going, so these will be short novellas. The Farmers’ Market Sisters books include seven titles for the seven sisters.
Love in Bloom
Amber & Fynn
Amber doesn’t normally expect such a large bouquet request unless someone has been very bad.
Fynn isn’t her typical customer. When he returns to her farmers’ market stand, it isn’t for more flowers; it’s for a date with her. Assuming he’s up to no good, Amber turns him down only to find him again the very next day as she rests a flower beside each unloved grave.
Fynn’s standing over a headstone, one of the flowers from the bouquet he’d bought lying atop it.
A recently discharged soldier, Fynn isn’t used to talking about how he feels. Amber knows just what he needs and takes him to her family farm to get his mind off things. Fynn has no idea what he’s getting himself into between her many gossiping sisters and their intervening father. What Amber and Fynn don’t expect is for love to blossom and Fynn to finally realize what he’s needed all along.
The seven sisters of Sweet Springs Family Farm are a lot to handle after living life with his team. Can Fynn accept the change? Or will Valentine’s Day for Amber wilt and fade?

Willow never expected to find love on the side of the road. But there was Luca Jacoby, hood up, steam billowing out of his truck. It was quite the Saint Patrick’s Day luck.

Willow brings buzzing happiness into his stagnant world of cubicle life and lengthy trips to remote places. If only he could get over his fear of insects.
Willow longs to see the world. Luca wants to slow down. Will they be able to find a sweet spot in the middle? Or will their parting sting?

Cherries & Sparks (June 2022)
Sky & Cam
Sky has been waiting for Cam to come home from war. When he arrives but doesn’t call, she wants to know why.
Sky has always been faithful to her high school sweetheart. They’ve been together for years, since long before Cam decided to join the military. She stayed with him despite his lengthy deployment, worrying phone calls, and often weeks or months without a word. For Cam to not call her after getting off the plane makes Sky fear he has changed. His previous concerns about her not liking who he has become have her on edge.
Cam left everything behind, including his goal of being a professional pianist, to escape his micromanaging, high-expectation parents, and a sister living the perfect American dream life. Still, despite the miles between them, his heart remained at home with Sky. Now that he’s back, he isn’t the same mentally…or physically. After being medically retired from service, Cam’s sense of purpose is lost.
With the summer packed with Cam’s favorite hometown Fourth of July events, Sky hopes to show him that he can still find happiness there with her. From the family picnic and the town parade to the local rodeo and fireworks display, there are plenty of opportunities for Cam to enjoy being home. It just doesn’t seem to be enough.
Can Sky show Cam the healing power of love? Or will Cam push her and everyone else away for good?

Together, they plan a last-minute fall festival to bring in extra customers. It takes a lot of work to get the word out online and schedule events for the weekend. If the festival flops, Sienna worries about what it will cost the farm and if she’ll be stuck with truckloads of pumpkins in the fields.
But Joel has a secret plan to boost Sienna’s sales. He hopes she isn’t upset when she finds out what he worked out without her input.
Will Sienna forgive Joel for the strings he pulls and see the truth behind his actions? And will the festival be a winner or a frost-laden waste?

Together, Melody and Tucker work to make one family’s season extra bright and come to realize it’s doing the same for both of them. But when Melody’s trees vanish from her lot, she starts to wonder who’s helping who.
Tucker swears he had nothing to do with it and takes it upon himself to find out what happened and where the trees went. Heartbroken that her stand will be empty on Christmas Eve, Melody heads back to the farm to cut down more trees, eating into her stock for next year.
When Tucker returns, will the news be good or very bad? Can he save Melody’s Christmas tree lot, or will she be forced to turn and walk away, leaving both him and the empty lot behind?
