“I loved this boxed set. Each and everyone can be read alone and stand on its own.” -angels

Amazon Bestselling Author

Dynamic women, heartwarming stories. This Windy City boxed set includes Finding Southern Comfort, Her Favorite Mistake, Her Favorite Honeymoon and Her Favorite Hot Doc. The Kirkpatrick family and their friends make readers laugh, cry and sigh. Vanessa Randall, Amy Shaw and McKenna Kirkpatrick are high school friends whose shared passion for life and men with warm hearts keeps them together. Lots of chemistry and lots of ways to mess it up. They may originally live in Oak Park, just outside Chicago, but their interests take them far afield, like Italy, Guatemala or Savannah. They follow their hearts in touching, often hilarious, stories that readers “won’t be able to put down.”

Finding Southern Comfort

Harper Kirkpatrick is not what Cameron Bennett expects for the bachelor party in his Savannah mansion. She’s desperate when he sends her home in her cat costume. Jobs are scarce and eviction looms. Former boyfriend Billy took off for California and she’s too proud to head home to Chicago.

Although Cameron may not go for her cheerleader kicks, he does admire Harper’s spunk. When she answers his ad for a nanny, she’s horrified to find herself back at his mansion. But she can’t turn down the generous salary or Bella, the toddler with troubled eyes and an eating problem. Youngest in the Kirkpatrick clan, Harper’s not an expert on kids. Neither is the young widower.

Her head-strong personality soon puts her at odds with Cameron and his TV personality girlfriend, Kimmy Carrington. When she stands in for Kimmy at a Savannah gala, Harper and Cameron spark a fire that nearly burns down the dance floor. Never has the wrong man felt so right. Never has a boy from the south worked so hard to rev up the charm. A trip home for his father’s funeral reveals a whole different side of the successful renovation expert. Will the Windy City girl be able to put the heart back in his home? Can he convince her that his southern comfort has staying power?

Her Favorite Mistake
Sometimes a woman makes a mistake. Sometimes he’s hard to forget. When Vanessa Randall appears on “Eye of the Tiger,” a popular reality TV show, she isn’t prepared to see her Vegas Hunky Hottie from four years earlier. She may need Alex, now an Internet mogul, but he’s the last man she wants back in her life.

Oh, Alex recognizes her all right. The long-legged brunette had called herself Vivien Leigh before slipping out before dawn. More than a little ticked off, he becomes Vanessa’s mentor to help her ramp up Randall’s Whipped Cream Cakes. Revenge can be sweet. When their business arrangement becomes personal, things get complicated. Alex and Vanessa struggle with commitment issues, but her toddler wins Alex’s heart. Still, she holds back. Can sand castles and cinnamon toast help her decide to make her “favorite mistake” her forever man? A heart warming romance on Lake Michigan with subtly sexy love scenes.

Her Favorite Honeymoon
Hard to keep your head on straight in Italy. Even harder to keep your heart. The wedding might be off, but the honeymoon? No way will Amy miss one week in Tuscany. Travel Chums pairs her up with Mallory. But Amy expects a woman, and the man from Savannah doesn’t expect her surprise.

The mismatched pair strikes a pact for a platonic tour, from Rapallo to Venice, but both find reasons to break the rules. Lots of surprises along the way as Amy and Mallory savor fresh pesto in La Cinque Terra and a tango on the Piazza San Marco. Peach bellinis, art museums, a gondola ride on the Grand Canal—hard to put all this behind them. Should they even try? Outrageous fun and tempting decisions for the Windy City girl.

Her Favorite Hot Doc
Romance isn’t on his mind when Dr. Logan Castle meets midwife McKenna Kirkpatrick, but give her time. She’s good at riling things up, and Logan soon learns he likes to be riled. Full of spunk, McKenna presents a challenge for the handsome head of her department when she joins Montclair Specialty Hospital. Ranked a Chicago Hot Doc, Logan favors established protocols while McKenna likes to push the envelope. She’s been brought on board to shake things up and Hot Doc gets the message. Thrown together on a department revamp, Logan soon discovers that McKenna generates her own heat. Their initial meeting at the Purple Frog becomes a slow seduction. Only McKenna could turn a plate of french fries into a romantic tease. One swish of her fiery red hair and Logan realizes more than the direction of their department is at stake. He’s operated within strict parameters since his divorce. This woman brings a surge of a romantic heat that could change his whole world, if he allows it.

When McKenna impulsively invites him to a family party, Logan is intrigued by the boisterous Kirkpatrick clan. He’s an only child, and this is a rollicking crew. But her five year-old nephew snags his heart, reopening an old wound. Beneath her saucy exterior, McKenna harbors her own hurt. She struggles with her own pain. When their chemistry sends her reeling, she tries to relegate him to the category of friend or buddy. She’s used to calling the shots, but Logan has other plans.

After calling him in to consult on a patient, McKenna questions whether the patient’s miscarriage is somehow her fault. Hot Doc offers comfort that turns steamy in a heartbeat. Feeling her control slipping away, McKenna throws up a fire shield and tries to interest him in an attractive colleague. But although Dr. Priscilla Preston, their new colleague, would seem a logical choice for Hot Doc, he’s a man with his own mind. Logan sets McKenna straight fast. A casual day on his sailboat turns to personal pursuits when Hot Doc wants to sample more than her chocolate dipped strawberries. A well meaning massage becomes a romantic exploration. Good thing Lake Michigan is so close at hand. But as McKenna sinks into the cool water, she wonders…is she getting in over her head?

Observing McKenna during a tricky case in the water birthing suite becomes an aphrodisiac for Logan. Later, McKenna thinks she’s joining him for rounds on the OB floor, but Hot Doc has romance on his mind when he steers her into his private office. The heated exchange leaves them both wondering where this relationship is heading. The Board agrees to raise funds for the OB renovation as well as new technology. For now, they’ve side-stepped a head-to-heart conflict.

When Logan joins the Midwives in Action group for their yearly mission in Guatemala, McKenna views the week as a test. Will the primitive conditions in the highlands shake Hot Doc from his comfort zone? Together, they work long, grueling days under some pretty rough conditions. The grateful patients warm to Logan, and so does McKenna. Nothing is too menial for this man. His compassion deepens her feelings and in a raw moment of passion, McKenna unleashes the L word. His response stuns her. Has she jumped the gun on this romance? Is this a man who can love her and father her children?

The Montclair Foundation fund raising efforts for OB kicks off with a golf outing, where McKenna meets Cecile Montclair, Logan’s grandmother. In her charming but pragmatic manner, Cecile helps McKenna see past Hot Doc’s silence. Logan’s way ahead of both women and has delved into his own heart. Will he be like the chocolates hidden in McKenna’s desk? Irresistible and so very hard to refuse?

The women take on life and its complex challenges. As always, families play a role. “No one falls in love without being influenced by family, positive or negative.” The novels are said to be “like a Hallmark movie.” Enjoy all four together in the Windy City Romance: Boxed Set I.
