Driving Miss Darling

Driving Miss Darling

Hearts of Cornwall Book 3

“A swoonworthy romance that I thoroughly enjoyed” — 5-star Goodreads review

She came to write about Newford’s bachelors. She didn't expect to fall for the most charming one of all.

A passionate writer. Eliza Darling is driven and determined and focused on one thing: acquiring her late father’s newspaper. To succeed, she must deliver a story to top all stories. And what better topic to captivate readers than a town overflowing with novel-worthy heroes?

An engaging charmer. Alfie Kimbrell is gregarious and good-natured and focused on lots of things. Ladies. Taking ale with his cousins. His new cidery venture. Then there’s the derelict property he’s restoring and… did we mention ladies?

And the story that brings them together. When Miss Darling arrives, Alfie mistakenly assumes she’s come to write about Newford’s attractions. As he points out his hamlet’s charms, he finds himself falling harder than ever before for the bold and independent lady. But Miss Darling doesn’t seem interested in Newford’s sights at all, and he begins to wonder if his family might not be her story.

As Alfie and Eliza navigate their growing feelings for one another, they must confront their differences. Will Eliza's ambition and Alfie's loyalty to his family keep them apart, or will they find a way to love?

But then a man died, and he was forced to abandon his carefree life. Now, he’s finally returned to Newford, but Wynne isn’t quite the adoring pisky he remembers.

Star of Wonder

Star of Wonder

A Sweet Victorian Holiday Novella

"Such vivid characters and descriptions! Star of Wonder is a truly delightful read."  5-star Amazon review

A soldier returns to claim the lady of his heart before she marries another in this frosty Victorian Christmas romance.

The captain. Andrew Grey has long wished to make Aster Corbyn his, but a lady who’s always been surrounded by brilliance, from her astronomer father to her artist mother, doesn’t deserve mediocrity. So Andrew sets out to achieve, if not brilliance, at least a proper shine, and he asks her to wait for his return. Aaand wait. Then he receives the unwelcome news that Aster has gone and betrothed herself to another.

And his lady. At six and twenty, Aster Corbyn thought she’d have married Andrew Grey long before now. But his letters have grown less frequent and she’s grown more impatient. After years of watching their star across an ocean of disappointment, she’s given up on him just as he’s apparently given up on their dreams.

When a St. Nicholas Eve snowstorm thwarts her travels, Aster finds herself stranded with her old friend, who is recently—and quite unexpectedly—returned from India. And to her irritation, Andrew is just as carefree and irreverent as she recalls.

Will merry hearths and mistletoe thaw this pair before it’s too late for a second chance at love?

Fans of the series will enjoy this peek into the families of Harry & Celeste (The Astronomer’s Obsession) and Julian & Charlie (The Physician’s Dilemma) while new readers will love this stand-alone tale featuring an independent heroine and flawed-but-lovable hero.

A female surgeon must navigate society’s restrictions in this fun and courageous tale about finding love where you least expect it.

A physician seeking love. Julian Grey has led a charmed life. His every endeavor has been easily achieved, and he doesn’t want for much. Freedom from the females in his family. A man-sized scone. A bride so he might join his friends in wedded bliss. He’s even found the perfect lady to court. But first, he needs to hire a surgeon for Heloise Manor, London’s newest foundling home.

If only it weren’t for the annoying Miss Grace, whose brash manner and freakishly accurate memory irritate him like a pebble in his boot.

A surgeon seeking employment. Charlotte Grace wants nothing more than to be a surgeon, but she’ll be content helping her father treat his patients. Until he retires, that is.

Set adrift, Charlie goes to London to further her studies and seek like-minded doctors for intelligent discourse. Instead she encounters small minds and Dr. Julian Grey, a physician who studied with her father years ago.

Life is too easy for Dr. Grey—even London’s stubborn traffic parts for him. With little effort he’s gained the entrée into the medical world that she desperately longs for. But she’s willing to overlook his failings if he’ll hire her on as surgeon at Heloise Manor.

When an impossible choice demands courage, will Julian and Charlie find their way to love?

With nowhere else to turn to escape her greedy brother-in-law, she flees to an abandoned cottage on England’s southern coast. She has a plan to secure her future.
