Everything His Heart Desires


The second book in the series features Marla's good friend and colleague, Brett aka Hot Rod Harris, an ambitious cardiologist who collects muscle cars and loves life in the fast lane. 

The man most likely to drive her crazy....

Growing up in Lafayette Falls, senator’s daughter Natalie Layton hid her sorrows behind a bright smile that charmed everyone in high school—except Brett Harris. Hardworking and highly motivated, Brett dismissed Natalie as a slacker. Instead, she’s become an acclaimed photographer. And when Brett, now a successful cardiologist, needs her family’s help to secure a coveted position, Natalie’s more than happy to prescribe a little payback…

Hailing from the wrong side of the tracks, Brett believed he could never win the school’s popular princess. Now he’s intrigued by the complex and compassionate woman Natalie’s become. Gaining her grandmother’s goodwill is the key to becoming chief cardiologist—and Natalie has no intention of making it easy. But as mutual mistrust gives way to pure chemistry, there’s more at stake than either ever expected—and much more to learn about matters of the heart…

Not Through Loving You


This book features Marla and Hot Rod's pal, Dr. Aaron Kendall, a former college athlete and wannabe Dad.

In the Southern town of Lafayette Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and a doctor with everything to prove. 

When a sickly infant is surrendered at the Lafayette Falls Medical Center and orphaned soon afterward, pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of becoming a father when the baby's beautiful estranged aunt turns up. She doesn't exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad complete with Aaron's cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a risky alliance with her. 

Country singer-songwriter Lia Montgomery barely knew her half-sister but she's determined her tiny nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet, despite her misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad and more unsettling, everything she's ever hoped for in a man. After all she's put him through, is it too late to form a family and maybe put a song in the good doctor's heart?
