Kait Nolan is stuck in an office all day, sometimes juggling all three of her jobs at once with the skill of a trained bear—sometimes with a similar temperament. After hours, she uses her powers for good, creating escapist fiction. The work of this Mississippi native is packed with action, romance, and the kinds of imaginative paranormal creatures you’d want to sweep you off your feet…or eat your boss. When she’s not working or writing, she’s in her kitchen, heading up a revolution to Retake Homemade from her cooking blog, Pots and Plots.

The best things happen while you're acting...
The historic Madrigal theater, in the heart of downtown Wishful, is about to close its doors forever. A last ditch fund-raising effort, a production of White Christmas, is probably the only thing that could bring Tyler Edison out of retirement. She fell in love on that stage, but when Brody Jensen abandoned her, she lost the heart to sing and dance for the crowd. Maybe it's time to take that back...
It seems like pure chance when Brody's job, which has taken him all over the world, brings him back to his little hometown to oversee his boss's latest secret project. Brody's looking for closure, planning to sell the house his parents left him and finally put his past, and his memories of Tyler, behind him. What better way than to be a part of this last show? Even though his leading lady is surely long gone...
Put on your dancing shoes, auditions start at six o'clock.
Check out Once Upon A Setup, the companion novelette that begins Myles' and Piper's story. And be on the lookout for their novel, coming Spring 2016.
Q: What makes the Wishful series special?
Wishful is a collection of southern romance novels honoring my Mississippi roots. When I started the series, I set out to highlight everything that I love about living in the small town South--all our quirks, foibles, and dreams provide a fabulous (and often funny) backdrop to contemporary romances about stubborn, independent women and the men who love them.
Q: Who would dig these books?
Wishful is a southern romance series written for anyone looking for love in a small town. If you loved Hart of Dixie and miss the residents of Bluebell, you just might fall in love with Wishful. It's a town where everybody knows your name and hope springs eternal! Many of my readers also enjoy the books of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Kristan Higgins, Melanie Shawn, Ava Miles, and Jill Shalvis.
Q: What order should I read the books in?
This southern romance series has been written so that each story is a standalone that wraps up with a happily ever after by The End. That said, if you want to read them in chronological order I suggest this:
* To Get Me To You (Cam and Norah)
* Be Careful, It's My Heart (Brody and Tyler)
* Know Me Well (Liam and Riley)
* Just For This Moment (Myles and Piper): Coming Spring 2016
Q: Are there crossovers with other series?
YES! My Meet Cute Romance series of novelettes includes two Wishful stories.
* Once Upon A Coffee (predates To Get Me To You)
* Once Upon A Setup (the prequel to Just For This Moment)

If you -- like me -- love musicals, romance, and White Christmas (aka, the best Christmas movie of all time), you will adore BE CAREFUL, IT'S MY HEART just as much as I did! A wonderful introduction to Nolan's town of Wishful ("where hope springs eternal"), BE CAREFUL tells the story of Tyler Edison and Brody Jensen -- two long-ago lovers separated for years due to heartbreaking circumstances. Reunited rather fatefully for their hometown production of White Christmas, Tyler and Brody are forced to confront each other and deal with long-buried hurt for the first time. Will Tyler and Brody manage to finally connect, as they failed to do years earlier? Will the cast and crew of White Christmas manage to save the old Madrigal theater from foreclosure and demolition? Will you come away from this book with such classics as "Blue Skies" and "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" stuck in your head? (The answer to that last question is a resounding YES.) BE CAREFUL, IT'S MY HEART is the perfect holiday season read, full of heart, humor, and a cast of delightful characters with their own stories to tell (and packed full of fun references to the movie itself). Read this charming novella and come away feeling full of holiday spirit -- and itching for more stories set in Wishful!

Enjoyed short story
This is the time of year where I break my rule of not watching chick flicks and devour every Christmas movie I can find. So why not do the same with a sweet, holiday romance book? This story is about two people who have been apart for years and are now performing together in a stage production of the movie version of White Christmas. This is a sweet romance, with some misunderstandings thrown in, and I absolutely loved it. I've read all of Kait's paranormals, but this is her first contemporary romance. And she nailed it!
