Or is it madness?
Regardless, about a month ago I reached out to some of my favorite people who also happen to write and asked if they’d be interested in working on a collection of Novellas with me. To my utter delight, they agreed!
Hearts and Beaus (See what we did there?) is available for pre-order now and will be released on Valentine’s Day (with paperbacks to follow).
Here are the blurbs:
Healing Hearts by Amy Stearman
Following a terrible accident that left her widowed and with a mute son, Kate struggles to regain her sense of normalcy. Balancing the diner she runs in her small home town against the weight of her son’s needs, the last thing Kate needs is another complication.
Ben finds himself in the small town of Barton, Missouri running on fumes and his last few dollars. He has no choice but to find a way to make some money or face going back home, a prospect he’d rather avoid.
When something as simple as a misbehaving vehicle brings the two together, their spark is undeniable. However, neither of them could have prepared themselves for just how connected they truly are.
What’s Luck Got To Do With It by E.J. Whitmer
If there’s the possibility of something going wrong, Riley Bremmel is sure to draw the short straw. Half of her life has been spent in a cast or Ace bandage. She’s dated losers and liars and never seems to land on her feet. Until she meets Graham, a handsome stranger who stumbles upon her changing a flat tire on a cold night. Maybe, just maybe, her luck is turning.
Graham Moore is the luckiest man in the Midwest. And, lucky him, he happens to be in the right place at the right time to rescue a damsel in distress. However, as time passes, his luck falters. The closer he gets to Riley, the more things turn against him. After learning of the Moore Family Curse, is it worth losing his luck to win his love?
The Extraordinary Ordinary by Elise Barker
Eva has it all: a good relationship with her husband Charlie, two goofy kids, a solid career, and a comfortable house. But a series of misunderstandings threaten to disrupt her happy normality. Shaken out of their routine and escaping to the woods in an ever-escalating comedy of errors, Eva and Charlie must work together in mutual trust to protect their family from forces outside their control. In the isolation of a rustic cabin, facing increasingly real dangers, Eva and Charlie rediscover the passion that had been missing from their snug yet mundane existence, and learn to appreciate The Extraordinary Ordinary.
105 Reasons by Erin Grosfield
Zoe is living her best life. After inheriting her grandparents’ farmhouse in her tiny hometown, she builds a thriving wedding venue in the old barn. Every day greets her with tranquility and laughs with her faithful, larger-than-life Great Dane. She has everything she needs.
Wyatt loves his penthouse life in the city, his world travels and his money. But with all his success, he has to admit he finds himself lonely and unfulfilled.
When a chance encounter brings their worlds together, will they be able to choose between the lives they know and their unexpected, inescapable longing to be together?
Something Beige by Megan Nelson
Paige is used to going unnoticed. When you’re a little plain and a lot introverted it comes with the territory. Trying to stay optimistic and true to herself, Paige looks for someone who values the natural over the fake, who understands there’s more to a person than meets the eye.
Losing yet another guy to a superficial beauty is the last straw. If all men prefer flash to substance, then she’s done with them. Fostering unwanted cats helps her feel needed and appreciated even if it doesn’t fill every corner of her heart. With all her focus on animal rescue, Paige is unaware that love is closer than she thinks.
If Only by Mica Rossi
Grant Richardson wasn’t looking for love, and certainly not in the silly castle on an island that shouldn’t exist. He was, after all, a lawyer. He didn’t believe in fairytales or pixie dust. Maggie Chalvis had dreamed of love but never expected it. She lived alone, with only her father and his secretary for company, confined to the castle created once upon a time for her enchanting mother.
Two solitary souls traveling in singular orbits. One grand master orchestrating their meeting. And just a little bit of Valentine magic.
