Secrets of the Lost Summer

Olivia Frost is transforming a historic home into an idyllic getaway. It’s picturesque and perfect, if only the absentee owner will fix up the eyesore next door. Dylan McCaffrey’s ramshackle house is an inheritance he never counted on. It also holds the key to a generations-old lost treasure he can’t resist…any more than he can resist his new neighbor. Dylan and Olivia pursue long-buried secrets and discover a mystery wrapped in a love story…past and present.

That Night on Thistle Lane

When librarian Phoebe O’Dunn discovers a hidden room, complete with a cache of vintage clothing, she finds a spectacular gown perfect for a gala masquerade. In the guise of a princess, Phoebe is captivated by a handsome swashbuckler who’s also adopted a more daring persona. Then Phoebe meets Noah Kendrick again, and at first neither recognizes the other. They’re not sure they can trust the magic of the night they shared—until an unexpected threat prompts them to unmask their truest selves.

If anyone can charm his way into such an event, it’s her fighter-pilot, wrong-for-her ex. But Ian wants more than an invitation—he’s determined to find a way back into Alexandra’s life.

Diplomatic Security Service agent Brody Hancock left town at eighteen, a few steps ahead of arrest and the wrath of Heather Sloan’s older brothers.
