Dreaming of Provence

In the beauty of Provence, where romance can blossom…

Julia Bellerman lost her husband to cancer, and now she must fulfill his deathbed wish to scatter his ashes in Provence. And to take Ryder Wilding with her. Ryder, her husband’s best friend. And the man she fell in love with a lifetime ago.

Can love overcome grief and guilt to give Julia and Ryder a second chance?

Wishing in Rome

Rome, the city of wishes…

Dana Shaw’s best friend dies suddenly and leaves her a bequest to fund the trip to Rome they’d planned to take together. And to make a wish in the Trevi Fountain. But how do you make an impossible wish for the only thing you truly want— to have your best friend back with you?

Yet a chance meeting with Marshall Garrison in the Colosseum changes everything, and Dana just might learn that it’s never too late for wishes to come true…

Dancing in Ireland

A romance to get your feet tapping…

Rose Christopher takes a job as the live-in caregiver of a feisty 87-year-old widow and finds Agnes to be a delight. Too bad Declan Delaney, the man who hired Rose, seems so cold-hearted and rude. But then Declan begins to grow on Rose. And when Rose and Declan whisk Agnes off for the trip of a lifetime to Ireland, Agnes packs her matchmaker hat in her suitcase. Can she help two people with mothballed hearts learn to dance together in Ireland?

Last book in the series

Agnes was shrewd and ruthless in her matchmaking efforts, but Rose and Declan had scads of chemistry to enhance their efforts. I shed a few tears when Agnes asked Rose if she’d stay until the end!!!!!! Bittersweet. I wish Rose wouldn’t have been such a martyr and so guilt ridden. It was a waste if… Read more “Last book in the series”
