17 More Days!

In 17 more days, my 14th novel releases! I can't tell you how excited (and nervous) I am about this. This is the first time I've written in an already established world—the Cinnamon Bay world! I had so fun weaving already existing characters into my story, especially the matchmakers! Their quirky, meddlesome ways always had me in stitches when I read about their antics in the previous books, so getting to include them in Nix and Sage's story was a lot of fun!

It started with the Love Spice…

Fall in love with the sexy heroes of Cinnamon Bay as you dive into a new world of romance, mystery and magic in this quirky, seaside village on the dune-swept coast of North Carolina.

No resident is safe from the myth-shrouded magical love spice or the triple threat of the genteel little old ladies known as the Matchmakers — Hattie, Trixie and Birdie. So, come join us on the Bay’s Boardwalk with its cooling breezes, charming shops, and a one-eyed cat named Hook,

We like our characters real, their journeys full of emotion, and our endings sigh-worthy. In this world we put a unique spin on the Matchmakers of old to create timeless stories that will keep you up long into the night turning pages.

Cinnamon Bay Romance features USA Today and International Bestselling authors!

…And ended with a Happily Ever After

You can introduce yourself to the magical world of Cinnamon Bay with fantastic romance books in collection one, collection two, and collection three. They even have a holiday collection! I'm a part of collection four, and my book is releasing on November 29th!

🔨 A Cinnamon Bay Romance


Jaded single mom Sage Whitaker is tired of choosing the wrong men. After discovering her fiancé with his secretary, Sage cuts all ties and relocates herself and her six-year-old daughter to Cinnamon Bay to start over. She hopes to build a new life for herself and her daughter.

What she doesn’t count on is her old crush, Phoenix Hutchinson, taking an interest. He’s funny, charismatic, and charming–but Sage has been fooled by love before, and she’s not willing to give her heart away so easily.

Phoenix hadn’t thought about Sage in years, but when she moves to town, those old feelings awaken the moment he sees her again. But Sage has her walls up. Can Nix whittle his way into her heart and convince her their fierce connection is worth the risk?
