Secrets of Fortuny Bay
A second chance at forever
A battle for the life of a child
Leo Moncrieff got more than he bargained for when he returned to the sleepy town of Fortuny Bay to settle his family's affairs. He found a second chance with the woman he loved in a life he walked away from.
Cat Alonzo will go to the ends of the earth for her son, and she might have to do just that in order to keep him safe from the family that should love him as much as she does. Struggling against all odds, she must prove that her son belongs with her.
Fighting their battles together is something neither Leo or Cat is prepared for. Around every corner there are people they can’t trust, lies that threaten to destroy the truth, and one chance to save not only Cat’s son, but the love that they’ve found once more in Fortuny Bay.
Reunion at Fortuny Bay
A devastating truth brought them back together
A long-harbored secret threatens to tear them apart
Leo Moncrieff is celebrating the multi-billion-dollar sale of his Silicon Valley company when he receives word that his estranged father has passed. Now, ten years after he escaped the sleepy harbor town of Fortuny Bay, Leo must return to settle his family’s affairs.
He expects to get in, sell the house, and get back to his real life… but Leo uncovers more secrets than he bargained for lingering in his dilapidated ancestral home: Namely, his ex who, unbeknownst to Leo, has been an in-home nurse for his father these past few years.
Widowed mother Cat Alonzo has nothing and no one beyond her five-year-old son and a room in the Moncrieff home. Her late husband’s sudden death gave her a reputation in town that she can’t seem to shake, and when his family opens a lawsuit for custody of her son, she finds herself stuck in Fortuny Bay by court order – just in time for Leo to come back to town and tear her apart all over again.
While Leo is still the same witty, charming guy who stole her heart all those years ago, their reunion is overshadowed by swirling rumors, hazy secrets, and the wagging tongues of a small town. As much as Cat wants to hate him, she can’t, and for Leo, even dire warnings from the neighbors can’t stop his flame from burning for the beautiful woman he left behind.
Their hesitant truce and budding second chance romance is shattered when his father’s attorney invites them both to the reading of the will, and the biggest secret of all is revealed —a betrayal that neither Cat nor Leo can possibly forgive.

15 Days With You
A mother’s dying wish. A son in search of answers. A fifteen-day surf odyssey with the California girl who will dare him to rethink everything.
Alone after his mother’s unexpected death, seventeen-year-old Shep leaves Texas to crash with his uncle’s family in Malibu. Before he can hang his cowboy hat, Shep learns something that blows his mind—in her youth, his hard-working single mom was a gifted surfer on her way to international fame. And her dying wish was for him to recreate the surf tour she completed when she was eighteen—the summer she got pregnant with him.
Along with his cousin Carmen (the red-blooded competitive surfer) and her best friend Samantha (the opinionated and mildly annoying beach goddess), Shep hits the road for a surf trip up and down Pacific Coast Highway. Armed with his mother’s ashes and fifteen sealed envelopes—each containing a page from her high school diary—Shep will discover a new side of the complex woman he’d only thought of as Mom, and might finally learn the identity of a man he’s never met—his father.
But each time he paddles out into the waves, a nagging question haunts him—the one he may not be ready to answer: Is he learning to surf because he wants to honor his mother’s dying wish, or running from the real reason he can’t go back to Texas—his own terrible mistake?

At first, taking her in seems like the best option, but soon her tantalizing proximity blurs the lines of friendship. With their high school reunion on the horizon will they find closure, forgiveness, and new beginnings?
