Scars of Youth (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Is first love forever?


Twenty-five year old Jessica Fowler has lived with the regret of the love she abandoned. Her heart still belongs to the boy she fell in love with in high-school, but she's come to accept that she can never regain the love she lost.

Kyle Andersen has moved to a new city and is determined to make a new life for himself, but he still feels incomplete. He's never gotten over the girl who broke his heart when he was just fifteen, and the love he still feels for her anchors him to his past.

On the same night, the two remember each other, and they think back to that one year in high-school that came to define their lives.

This is their story.

Set at boarding school in Switzerland, Scars of Youth is the emotional first book in a unique series about the power of first love and second chances.

If you like tender romances full of emotion, love, and heartbreak then you'll love this heartfelt and moving tale of two teens who find true love together, and the scars that their youth carves into their hearts.

Interview with the author


Q - Who is Scars of Youth's target audience?

Scars of Youth is hard to classify.

On the one hand, the bulk of the story takes place when Jessica and Kyle are in high-school. In this regard it could be considered a Young Adult novel.

The story opens and closes when Jessica and Kyle are in their mid-twenties, however, and Book 2, In My Dreams, picks up right after Scars of Youth. This aspect of the story fits the New Adult genre.

Finally, Scars of Youth takes place during the mid 80s, so this might appeal to older adults with young hearts who grew up in those years.

So I think both younger and older readers will find something of value in Scars of Youth.

Q - What makes Scars of Youth so special?

Scars of Youth takes place in 1985 at a boarding school in Switzerland, and Jessica and Kyle are American kids who grew up in Suadi Arabia. The exotic location and the character's unique upbringing makes this story stand out from the pack.

Q - Why should readers give this book a try?

Scars of Youth is a story about enduring first love and second chances, and features a cast of complex and memorable characters. It will make you laugh. It might even make you cry. But it will definitely make you feel. And isn't that why we read?

Love at Starlight (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: WELCOME TO STARLIGHT: A sweet and sexy new small-town romance series set at a family-owned pub in the picturesque snowmobiling town of Snowy Ridge, Wisconsin.

The weather may be cold outside, but things are sizzling indoors.

Jessie Foster has long been the person everyone could count on, the one who stayed back with her mom to run the family business while her two older sisters, whom hadn’t spoken to her in years, took off to live their lives. When her sisters suddenly drop back into her world wanting a job and a place to live, who could blame her for being angry? Sick of always doing what’s right, Jessie is ready to shake things up. Even if it’s wrong. And wrong has a name.

Enter the sexy Cade Stone, new to town and opening a snowmobile repair shop with his two equally hot brothers. Cade has an edge and a temper. He knows he’s a jerk 90% of the time and he’s generally unapologetic. Growing up in Chicago, he’d never dreamed he’d end up in the sleepy town of Snowy Ridge, population 1000. But somehow, he found himself caving to family pressure and doing “the right thing,” no matter how much he hated it.

Neither were looking, and they’re completely wrong for each other. But sometimes wrong and right blur and magic happens.

As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed.

Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane "Ghost" Bryson hadn't planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist.

The Darling Songbirds (The Songbirds of Darling Bay Book 1)
Rachael Herron seamlessly blends romance, friendship, and laughter. Barbara Bretton, USA Today Bestselling Author
 
From international bestseller Rachael Herron, comes a book too delightful to put down:

The saloon had always looked old-fashioned, but now it resembled a set in a ghost town. The problem was that Adele wasn't in an old western, or a ghost town. Darling Bay was the sleepy gold-rush town her great-grandfather had given his name to.

The town she'd left for good a long time ago.

The building is a ruin, the business is broke and customers are scarce. Add into the mix Nate Houston - the handsome, guitar-playing bartender who had always believed he would be the next owner - and Adele has one potent cocktail on her hands.

Can a rundown saloon in a sleepy town finally offer Adele a way into love?
 
Relationships are at the heart of women's fiction, and Herron could teach a master class on creating them. Chicklit Central
 
A FULL-LENGTH STANDALONE, a great entry into the world of Rachael Herron's sexy and hilarious books.
