You'll meet Suzie in the first book of the series, All of My Heart. All Suzie wants is to run Sweet Hart Inn, write her cookbooks, and cook. After all, food is love, and love is food. Right?

Matchbaker, matchbaker, bake me a match?
This collection includes all fifteen books in the Harbor Falls Romance Series. Welcome to Harbor Falls!
Life and business and living in her new-to-her home, were good. She marveled every single day how she’d acquired the quaint Victorian cottage. It was a dream come true. Her aunt’s passing had been unexpected and the fact that she’d left the home to Suzie was even more so. Her father’s oldest sister was the maiden aunt everyone adored, and Suzie missed her terribly. She vowed she would never take owning the home for granted and would always honor her aunt in the highest regard by keeping the home full of love and laughter and children. Aunt Donna so loved children. Since Suzie was the oldest of all the cousins, her Aunt had doted on her more than the others and had encouraged her to chase her dreams. Still, she never expected that her aunt would leave the beautiful storybook home to her.
Every day Suzie sent up a prayer of thanks to a higher power who might have assisted in helping move her dream forward.
Sweet Hart Inn was hers. She’d worked hard to convert Aunt Donna’s home into a working bed and breakfast inn, and to renovate the kitchen for her cooking classes and catering. It was also the perfect place to work on her cookbook and write her blog.
Cliff had dumped her, yes. And her sister had done something unthinkable, yes. But secretly she thanked the two of them and held no grudges, because their decisions had forced her hand. When that happened, and when the home was literally dropped into her lap, she’d left the past behind and started making plans on how live her future.
Sweet Hart Inn was the rest of her life. She intended to stay here, run this little bed and breakfast, and do her cooking and writing thing for years to come.
Her gaze spanned the horizon and then settled on the lake. Smiling, she rubbed her hands together to rid them of some dirt and then wiped them on the thighs of her jeans. As dusk settled in, all she wanted was a quiet walk down to the lake for a few moments of silence. Then that long, hot soak in the tub.
With her first few steps, the rumble of a surly engine grew louder down the road, forcing her to turn back. A large motorcycle—one of those bad-boy types—and its rider leaned into the turn and then smoothly made its way up the curvy drive to her home. She liked how the bike thundered into her peaceful existence and she wasn’t quite sure why. It was both unexpected and welcome, and that really made no sense at all. Perhaps it provided an edge to the night, a hint of excitement the inn normally didn’t lend at this time of evening.
The rider stopped the bike and abruptly cut off the engine.
Suzie stood spellbound staring at the man and motorcycle. He wore black from head to toe—helmet, leather jacket, hip-hugging tight jeans, and boots. Yes. Bad boy. The man stood silent and unmoving, staring back at her.
She’d expected a guest this evening, a Mr. Logan, and supposed this man could be him. He hadn’t said anything about arriving on a bike—not that her guests were in the habit of indicating the type of transportation they would use to get to the inn.
She stepped forward, again wiping her dirty hands on her pants, silently wishing she’d ended her planting early and showered. She reached out, ready to shake his hand and welcome him and—
The man dismounted, stood straight up, and slipped off his helmet. Her breath caught in her throat. The steady gaze that met hers and held while he shifted the helmet to his left hip and ran five fingers through his ruffled, curly brown hair, startled her.
Her heart jack-knifed.
Icy panic shot up Suzie’s back and she sucked in a breath and held it. Buzzing filled her ears, like a thousand people talking all at once. She’d know that finger-rake mannerism anywhere.

What’s your favorite part about being a romance author?
Connecting with readers—and hearing how they liked my stories. When I’m writing, I remember some of the emails I’ve received over the years, and I think about who wrote them. The readers who love to read about happily-ever-afters motivate me to give them another story. That’s an HEA for all!
Here’s my tip to add romance to your love life:
Listen to your partner. Truly listen. Expressing love sometimes isn’t just saying, “I love you.” Love is articulated in many ways. Being there and listening can be one of them. Sometimes we don’t have to say a word, but the caring and support from a touch, or a focused look, can mean so much.
