It Happened on Love Street - Everland, Georgia, #1

"It Happened on Love Street," is a fun, cheery and yet zany contemporary romance that was highly enjoyable for a springtime read. Add a few mischief pups and a hunky hero and I was literally hooked. As a quick little bonus, I immensely savo...

Hero in the Highlands - A No Ordinary Hero Novel, #1
