The idea for Return to Love grew from the fact that book 1 was a novella and once I finished it, I knew there was so much more to write about April and Hale. The original inspiration for the series came when I was invited to include a romance story in an anthology called, Bliss. Bliss is the name of a house perched on the shores of Albemarle Sound in North Carolina. Each author's story takes place in the same house on the water, but each story is written in a different era. It was a blast to write and it's really widened my net in terms of genre. I adore historical fiction (more coming soon in that vein!) but I'm loving romance as well.(less)

“But, at that point, all Jeanie had was the will to construct a new life, even if that meant forcing intangible aspects of it into being, hoping that the act of pretending might bring forth reality.”
