The New Life in Love trilogy started out as the stand-alone novel Reservations, the romance between exceptionally good-looking Michelin star Executive Chef Darien McKenna and successful self-made media consultant Alison Clarke.

As their sweet New York City love story unfolded, the plot and characters in Heartland began to take shape. Darien’s aimless attempt to run from his pain put him on a new life path to a small town in rural Iowa and a second chance at happiness with Miranda.

Four short stories in Tales from Heartland re-visit the charm of Harmony, the lives of neighbors met in book two, and introduces readers to new friends.

Kevin Carstens, the shy tractor salesman who fights for and wins the woman he loves in “Brake Dancing.”

Bradley Jenkins, the mechanic who falls in love at first sight with a beautiful stranded traveler in “Tow in Love.”

Jocelyn Ellis, transplanted Chicago police officer turned Linn County Sheriff’s deputy, uproots her life to save her 15-year-old son Derek.  Both mother and son discover their new life purpose with a lonely drama teacher and his autistic daughter in “Kicking the Tires.”

Adele Murphy’s chance meetup with Gerald Werner, a high school sweetheart who never was, rekindles feelings buried but not forgotten in “Adele’s New Life in Love.”

A steamy novella bonus!

Rachel McKenna, Marisa’s sharp-tongued younger sister, is guarded and not easy to get along with. Drew McKenzie is convinced that he has to have her and will stop at nothing to persuade her they are meant to be together. The Scottish Highlands and enchanting Edinburgh are the backdrops for this saucy, sexy whirlwind  Love Unlikely romance!
