Life at its worst can be ruining.

Ruby Collins is his sister's best friend and his new roommate. Broken as he is, he knows he should keep his distance.
But when Ruby’s professor lurks too closely, Caleb steps in. And what was meant to be a ruse, turns into so much more.
Together they can heal each other, but it’s the past that nearly ruins them.
The Hawthorn Hills Duet Series follows eight couples. Each two-book duet must be read in order to enjoy the couple’s full story, but the series can be read in any order. You’ll find angst-filled, slow-burn, epic love stories along with topical storylines and some amazingly real and raw characters.

In addition to their shared love of food, the writing duo that is Claire Raye like to write about strong, sassy females who aren’t afraid to say what’s on their mind and the overprotective men who fall in love with them. Both halves of Claire Raye are married and both of their husbands have a cheeky side that gets plenty of airtime in their books. From their smart mouths to their witty one-liners, there’s plenty of material to use for all those alpha males they love to write about.
