Just a Small Town Romance Pre-Order

Here it is! I’ve put up the pre-order for Aidan’s book, Just a Small Town Romance, which is the first book in my upcoming series Heroes of Harte’s Harbor. You met Aidan in Just One Fake Date – he’s Shannyn’s brother – now he’s got everything organized to start his new craft brewery in his hometown. We visited Harte’s Harbor in Just One More Time for Shannyn and Ty’s wedding. These books are set in the F5F world, so I’m expecting some familiar characters to pop up.

My plan is to publish this series on a nice steady schedule, with a new book every four months. Right now, I have seven books planned for the series. They’ll all live under the Heroes of Harte’s Harbor tab here on the website. I’ve been working on the Pinterest board and a character list and will let you know when they’re ready for you to browse. Right now, book one is on pre-order for next summer. Here we go!

Just a Small Town Romance, book one of the Heroes of Harte's Harbor series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke

Aidan Hawke’s legendary good luck has bailed…
What other explanation can there be for his entire future being in the hands of Merry Sinclair? By-the-book Merry has always been the one person immune to his charm, but everything is riding on Aidan convincing her to him use her dad’s historic warehouse for his new craft brewery. Worse, now Merry’s a hotshot Boston lawyer—with legs that go on forever—and even less inclined to compromise than ever. She just wants to sell up and leave town forever. Unless Aidan can persuade her to give him a chance, Merry will probably dump his first batch of beer into the harbor—and maybe throw him with it—then sell the warehouse to someone else. Aidan will do anything to make it come together—even take Merry on as his partner…but when their partnership-of-opposites works like a charm, can he convince her to take a chance on Harte’s Harbor and him?

Meredith Sinclair is on the road to success…
Her hard work is finally paying off and she’s in the running to make partner at one of the most prestigious law firms in Boston. At the worst possible moment, she has to return to Harte’s Harbor—the backwater she couldn’t wait to leave—to settle her father’s estate. It just figures that her dad made one of his handshake deals with Aidan Hawke, her polar opposite—and secret high school crush. That crooked smile still has a dangerous effect on her pulse. But Aidan, with his easy charm and boy-next-door good looks is the last person Meredith needs complicating her life. But when the offers for the warehouse fall through, Aidan’s suggestion of a temporary partnership makes more sense it should. It’ll just be business, for their mutual benefit—so long as Meredith doesn’t forget everything she’s learned about love and romance.
