Book 1: To Love Again
At forty-two, Nicole Adams yearns to discover her true self again.
When Nicole follows the suggestion of a friend to go on a spa getaway during a time that her children are away with their father, she does so believing that it might lead to self-discovery. What she ends up finding at the spa, though, is much more than what she bargains for.
Gavin Bell is a successful businessman who only cares about his clients and getting the job done.
When Gavin’s boss and best friend sends him away to a spa in the mountains for a break from work, Gavin is anything but pleased about it. He decides that he’ll spend the time in his room working, but while checking in, he meets a woman that he can’t get out of his mind.
Both deceived about the resort by well-meaning friends, Nicole and Gavin find themselves amongst individuals looking for love—a fact that neither of them is pleased about. They’ll make the best of a night—or two, if a shared meal convinces them that an initial spark just might be turning into something more.
Book 2: To Trust Again
Ella Brooks has known more than her share of dates since her divorce. She hasn’t been looking for more than fun nights out, but suddenly she’s rather exhausted by it all. She’s ready to give dating a complete rest for a bit—or at least for the duration of her beach vacation.
Dane Jackson, widowed architect and all-around great guy, wants to enjoy one last beach vacation with his only son before he goes off to college.
Early on in his vacation, a playful game of football with his son will lead to encounter with a woman—one angry woman at that, but one who Dane suddenly can’t put out of his mind.
Both Ella and Dane have known heartache and loss when it comes to love—both have a lot to learn about trust. Can one magical week away convince them to give love another chance?
Book 3: To Hope Again
Jillian Roberts enjoys her quiet house on the lake.
Feeling relaxed and happy to be back home after a beach vacation, her serenity is immediately challenged by the new neighbor moving in—a new single neighbor, who’s ruggedly handsome and the most loud and obnoxious man she’s ever met.
Mateo Williams is angry when he moves into his house on the lake. The house that he bought for his now ex-wife is a huge thorn in his side as he works tirelessly to fix it up so that he can sell it as soon as possible.
His loud music while he hammers, helps to ease his anger just a bit—that is until his neighbor shows up, looking all lovely and sweet.
Jillian is determined to make things nice between her and her loud neighbor. Mateo is just as determined to ignore her—until a quiet moment and a gentle kiss makes him realize that what seems to be happening between them can not easily be ignored.
Book 4: To Try Again
Angela Grayson has worked hard to transform herself into a woman who is confident and happy with her life. She now realizes that it is okay not to believe in fairy tales when it comes to romance—that she’s just fine on her own.
One day, a routine visit to the ATM somehow leads Angela into the arms of police officer, Ryan Scott. And to say that Angela isn’t comfortable around men with badges would be an understatement.

The day that Ryan happens upon Angela at the ATM, his emotions and instincts will go into overdrive. First, to stop a crime from occurring and second, to somehow convince this woman that it was their destiny to meet that day.
