Hart Land : Books 1 - 3
Heather - Lily - Violet
Boston cardiac surgeon Heather Preston has invested everything to achieve her dream of working at a world renowned hospital. When an unsettling call from her grandfather the retired general brings her back to her childhood lakeside home, she rediscovers the appeal of life in a small town, the joys of free-spirited youth—and Jake Harper.
After serving in the military, Jake Harper has returned home. The slower pace and neighborly spirit makes Lawford the perfect place to settle down. Pitching in may be second nature to the former Marine, but while helping out at Hart House he discovers things may not always be as they seem, especially one irresistible surprise—Dr. Heather Preston.
Firefighter Cole McIntyre figures his plum assignment to a placid lakeside small town is just his good luck. Until an early morning incident confines him to a cabin. Add a beautiful, pastry baking redhead, and keeping up his regimented lifestyle and healthy diet proves to be a bigger challenge than he’d expected. Especially since it’s more than Lily’s sweet baked treats he’s finding irresistible.
Another matchmaking fiasco behind her, Lily Nelson has sworn off men. Which is just fine since her lifelong dream of owning her own bakery is almost within reach…maybe. Now more than ever, she needs all her wits about her to balance her noisy, no-boundaries friends and family, find a signature pastry, and look after a handsome firefighter. Not that Cole isn’t easy on the eyes, he just might be too easy on her heart.
Clearing his packed schedule to follow up on an insider tip, workaholic Grant Whitaker heads to Lawford Mountain ready to score the deal of a lifetime. Convincing the retired general that Grant is the best man to develop and preserve Hart Land just might prove easier than persuading the owner’s beautiful yet skeptical granddaughter.
Unable to work in her flooded Boston studio, yoga instructor Violet Preston retreats to her family’s peaceful lakeside home. While the looming sale of her affordable apartment building might be threatening her Zen, her real battle comes in the form of one well-dressed, smooth-talking, Lamborghini-driving charmer.
