Von Sellers has given up on love. After losing his wife in a fatal car accident, he resigned himself to focusing on the soccer team he coaches, and thereby blocking any and all matters of the heart.

Yet when the two commiserate over their lackluster histories, Von and Carol discover an attraction they can’t ignore. To save their battered hearts, their every impulse tells them to run from the magnetic pull drawing them together. It falls to Rosie, Carol’s precocious sex-year-old, to break down their barriers with her innocently brilliant views on love and life.
 
Can she convince Von and Carol to let go of the past and make a play for a future together? Or have their hearts already retired from life’s ultimate game?

The Beach Break Coffee Bar was crowded and the girls squeezed through the throng of people to get to the table Evan was holding for them.

 

“It’s nice to be connected.” Ashley said as she slid into the seat next to Lucy.

 

Lucy smiled and started to respond just as Ashley smacked her on the arm. “Nooo,” she groaned. “That’s him over there.”

 

All three of her friends turned to look in the direction she’d pointed. Five good looking guys sat at a table laughing and drinking beer.

 

“Which one is he?” Mindi asked.

 

“He’s the jerky one.”

 

“You’ll have to be a little more descriptive.” Randi said. “I mean, they all look pretty friendly to me.”

 

“The one in the grey T-shirt. Don’t let that boyish smile fool you. He’s not nice.”

 

“I don’t know,” Mindi said. “I think he looks very nice. Look at the way that shirt hugs his biceps. Wish he’d turn this way so I could get a better look at his face.”

 

“What’s his name?” Randi had to raise her voice to be heard over the band who had moved back onto the stage and were warming up their instruments.

 

“Officer Lopez,” Ashley answered, trying to be heard over the music.

 

“What?” Randi raised her voice again.

 

“Officer Lopez!” Ashley said loudly just as the band stopped and the coffee bar buzz dropped to a din.

 

Officer Lopez and his buddies all turned to see who had shouted his name, and the lead singer of Reflective Lenses who was already standing in front of the mic picked it up.

 

“Officer Benny Lopez, you’re not even in the band, and cute girls are shouting your name. How’d you do that?”

 

Laughter rippled through the little coffee bar and Ashley considered crawling under the table.
“It’s okay Ashley,” Lucy said, “Evan just had a new refrigerator delivered. I’ll go get the box. We can smuggle you out of here without anyone seeing you!”
At least Randi tried to hide her smile, but Mindi made no effort to contain her amusement.

Havenport

Welcome to Havenport, RI a fictional town not far from Newport where you’ll find romance, suspense, time travel and secrets shared by five authors in genres you love. Today they are releasing five new standalone books, come check them out and stay for a spell…

A quick note from Havenport newspaper gossip, Candy Apples…. 

Okay, here’s the skinny. Havenport’s a great town. Perfect for a gossip like me. 😉 I’ve been writing this column for years and never struggle for a story. Easiest job I’ve ever had!

We may have started as a small fishing town (stop by our maritime museum to learn more) but we’ve expanded into a thriving hub for business of all sorts. Lots of restaurants, a charming bookstore, souvenir shops, whale watching, ghost tours, even a metaphysical shop (the manager’s a member of our local coven)…there’s never a shortage of things to do here.

We’ve got Manor Road, with titans of business known for bringing the money to town—and the drama. I don’t need a shovel to dig up the dirt (or the skeletons) over there.

I’m no less busy when I take a stroll down Main Street and eavesdrop—um, I mean, talk to the shopkeepers. They’re a nosy bunch, but they’ve got your best interest at heart. I’ve seen some great couples get together over a drink at Royce’s Tavern or after dropping off a pup for daycare at Wags & Walks.

With our close proximity to major cities like Newport, Providence, Boston, and New York City, we attract just about everybody. And, in the spirit of our founding fathers, Havenport welcomes them all with open arms. And when I say everyone, I mean it.

Are you looking for a hometown hero to sweep you off your feet? A debonair best-selling author? Is a time traveler from the Roaring Twenties more your style? If you’re looking for adventure or to reunite with a lost love, you’ll find it here.

And I’ll report all the juicy details.

Heart of the Matter

The woman was everything to her after her parents died in a plane crash over Lockerbie, Scotland. Little did Addy know, an old picture tucked away in the family bible of Cookie with a handsome stranger would lead her to a discovery for which she is little prepared.

Ethan Taylor is an art historian. He’s lived with his Great Uncle Ben for a long time and would do anything for him. He never anticipated Ben’s dying wish would introduce him to his biggest sacrifice.

Neither Addy nor Ethan are prepared for the lengths at which their families went through to keep Cookie and Ben apart. As they put the pieces together, they uncover a decade’s old unsolved murder implicating Cookie and Ben. Will Addy and Ethan’s blossoming love be able to stand the strain of finding the truth? Will they be able to get to the heart of the matter?
