The Guilt of a Sparrow

Release date:  July 3, 2018
Order NOW at Amazon.

The Guilt of a Sparrow is a true romance with a happily ever after ending.  I hope you love it!  

Magnolia Porter has spent the entirety of her twenty-four years satisfying her mother’s guilt. She was the good girl to her trouble making brother, Lucian – the one left behind to hold her mother together after he died. She is an invisible girl in a small town carrying the burden of her family’s loss and pain. Maggie was nobody trying desperately to be somebody.  

Cotton MacKenna is the one with the temper. Of the five MacKenna boys, he’s the one most likely to throw the first punch. Never mind all those fights were a decade ago, all in an attempt to save a sweet girl from her bullying older brother. Now, Cotton has grown up, with his own photography business, yet as the fourth in the line of MacKennas, he would only ever be known for his past. Time for a change.  

Maggie and Cotton are more than the labels placed on them, put there by their families, the town, and themselves.  

A meddling best friend. Bluegrass jams. Small town gossiping. Love, loss, and family ties. Learning how to be who you are outside of who you were told to be. With humor and plenty of romance, of course.

Fierce Grace

Release date:  November 3, 2018.

In Fierce Grace you will revisit the town of Fox River, NC and a few of the characters from The Guilt of a Sparrow - but this is a stand alone novel with all new characters introduced as well.  

Annabelle Dare is in a good place.  She landed a sweet job, along side her best friend, teaching at the quaint Fox River Elementary School.  She has everything she needs:  teaching music to the sometimes beastly children she loves, sharing an apartment with her best friend and their fancy new retro sofa.  A simple life she’s convinced is all she needs.   

Asher Grace knows who he is and what he has to offer.  Nothing.  Poor boy from the wrong side of town, steel worker, with too much weight on his shoulders as it is trying to hold his family together.  He knows his life is no place for a good girl.  It’s why he never gets to know a girl beyond a mutual good time.  It’s why he draws a hard line between his family and the rest of the world, doing all he can to protect the ones he loves.  It’s most certainly why he avoids too sweet for her own good Annabelle at all costs.   

Annabelle falls in love with the way she comes to life with Asher.  He awakens a hunger for life and love in her that she didn’t know she possessed.  He pulls her up out of the Land of Survival she’d lived in since she was a young girl.  Asher must learn his worth beyond his upbringing and his past.  Annabelle must learn to stoke the fire of life as it burns within her and learn how close she can get before the flames lick her.
