The Rebel Series
Tessa Armstrong has one more summer at home before heading off to college with her best friend. She’s been counting down the months, waiting to be free of her overbearing brothers and overprotective father — not to mention getting out of the small, suffocating town she’s grown up in.
The one thing Tessa doesn't count on is falling in love, least of all with Brock Miller. He’s the kind of boy her father has always warned her about.
He’s older, mysterious, and a little dangerous. Brock has had a hard past, and the whole town not only knows it, but won’t let him forget. Brock has come back to take care of his ailing mother and struggling younger siblings.
He doesn’t have time to fall in love, especially with one of the town’s darlings, but sometimes, love comes fast and fierce. Can Tessa and Brock find a way to each other despite their pasts and the obstacles their families present?
"REBEL SOUL is another swoon-worthy, emotional home run for J.C. Hannigan. Filled with heartwarming themes of love, family, and friendship, this redemption story is romance at its best."
— Molli Moran, Author of The Walker Boys Series
In the four years since Elle Thompson's first love broke her heart, she hasn't been able to get over him and move on. Luckily, a tempting new romance begins to simmer—but then fate throws Elle and Braden back together again, and Elle is trapped between her past and her possible future.
Braden Miller regretted pushing Elle away from him the moment it happened. Blindsided by grief, he lost sight of what and who mattered and quickly hit rock bottom. Since then, he's kept his head down and worked on becoming a man he can be proud of. But coming home to Parry Sound means seeing Elle again. As they're constantly pushed in the same direction, Braden realizes that he has to make amends with more than just his family.
Elle's yearning for both men in her life intensifies. Wavering between loyalty to one and memories of a long-ago flame with another, she struggles with her feelings. But fear of having her heart broken again keeps her from diving in either direction with both feet. Too bad it's not only her heart on the line...
"A powerful story about those rare and perfect people we meet in our lives who complete us in every possible way, Rebel Heart is an incredibly special tale of two people connecting on the way up, and on the way down. J.C. Hannigan is a master at creating a world with just the right mixture of angst and swoon, and her words left me feeling warm, hopeful and satisfied. A wonderful read written masterfully."

Becky Miller has been damaged by love before—many times.
After narrowly escaping the abuse of her lover, her son Aiden’s birth healed her broken family in ways Becky could have never imagined. She swore she would never trust herself, or her child, to another man again.
Just when things started looking up, the Miller family tragically loses their mother. Each of the Miller siblings mourn in their own way. Brock takes charge of arrangements, Braden loses himself to the bottle, and Becky grieves by propositioning her brother’s best friend for an intended one-night stand.
Travis Channing isn’t just her brother’s best friend; he’s a known womanizer—not to mention a chart-topping country singer. But Becky hopes one pleasure-filled night with Travis might temporarily numb the pain she’s experiencing.
As one night turns into more, Becky struggles to remain in control of her developing feelings, but Travis isn't content to keep things casual any longer.
Can Becky find a way to let go of the guilt of the past and look forward to a future with Travis? Will Travis be able to break through her barrier and show her the love she so desperately deserves?
"This is a beautifully written romance that will make you smile and maybe shed a tear. I loved that characters from the other books in the series make regular appearances. Reading this was like visiting beloved friends. I can't wait for whatever JC comes up with next."
— Karen Cimms, Author of the Of Love and Madness Series.
