The Stewart Sisters Book Two
*Published by The Wild Rose Press, Christmas Cookies Series, 2022
Harmony Stewart has the ingredients for a perfect life: a precocious daughter, substantial wealth, and a supportive family. The only potential improvement would be a second shot at love. Since she’s always had a thing for doctors, Harmony’s determined to meet Mr. Right at the hospital’s Holiday Cookie Bazaar and recruits cantankerous German baker Abelard Durchdenwald with a simple deal: his cookies for her assistance in landing him his dream job.
Abel adds unexpected—and much-needed—spice to Harmony’s days, so when issues arise with Abel’s visa, she impulsively offers a fake engagement that stirs up trouble with her well-connected ex-husband, Chance. If her ex uncovers Abel and Harmony’s deception, the consequences could be catastrophic. She should scrap the plan and start from scratch, but that would mean letting go of the baker who’s turning out to be sweeter than his desserts.

The Stewart Sisters Book One
*Published by The Wild Rose Press, Christmas Cookies Series, 2021
Event planner, Grace Stewart, learned the hard way that the only thing more painful than broken bones was a broken heart. When her fiancé dumped her after learning she had Osteogenesis Imperfecta ('brittle bone disease'), Grace swore off all men.
That is, until she and super sexy pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Raphael Herrera, are partnered up to host the hospital's annual Pediatric Holiday Cookie Bazaar. With the help of two meddling matchmakers and a precocious foster kid, Grace soon realizes she and Rafe's chemistry is cooking more than Rafe's world-famous gingersnaps.
After a whirlwind week of rare snowstorms, unlikely decorations, and Rafe's all-too-appealing company, Grace starts to wonder if their partnership might just be the perfect recipe for a happily ever after.
