Love in Logan Beach

Buy on Amazon

The storm that devastated the town of Logan Beach also ravaged everything Rosanna Turner once knew. First she lost her childhood home. Then the Thorn family bought out the store where she comfortably worked for most of her adulthood. Rosanna isn’t thrilled when eldest sibling David Thorn arrives in town, seeking her input before the grand reopening. Just like a Thorn, the man doesn’t play fair. He’s too charming, too gorgeous to resist…until she uncovers his secret agenda.

David wants to help repair the stricken town—all while discovering who’s been embezzling from his family’s new acquisition. Could it be Rosanna? The woman is irresistible and a force of nature in her own right. And he is in need of her expertise to make his store a success. Soon he also needs her in his arms…and anywhere else he can have her. Will mutual mistrust undermine their chance to build something wonderful together?

    1. Gotta love those tablescapes. Recently, I went to Lenox (the china company) to get some things for the New Jersey Romance Writers conference basket. You just can’t put a person who does tablescapes in a place with so many different patterns of dishes. I managed to get out without buying out the warehouse, but it was close.
