A tenacious optimist. A broken spy. Explosive chemistry.
Caught in a web of secrets and lies, Ronan McAllister is forced into retirement from the CIA and returns to his hometown of Seaview, Maine. While his family welcomes him home with open-arms, he struggles to leave his past behind through the thick fog of PTSD.
Payson Roberts is mostly content with her quiet life in the quaint town of Seaview, Maine. A diehard the romantic, she is determined to find a “perfect” match, but her fruitless search is starting to wear down her eternally sunny demeanor. As a favor to her best friend, and against her better judgment, she agrees to hire her friend’s irritable, jackass of a brother to help out around her beloved antique shop.
Incendiary sparks fly. Ronan pushes the fairy-eyed Payson away with insults and offense to save her from himself. But can Ronan protect Payson from the dangers of his past?
Get lost and fall in love again in the small town of Seaview, Maine. Passion and international espionage ignite in this enchanting contemporary romance series. Steamy, sweet, and a hint of suspense. Yes, you can read this as a standalone, over and over again if desired ;).
About the Author
Carrie's living her own happily ever after (with the inevitable ups and downs that go with it!) with her kids, husband, and dogs in the Pacific Northwest, working full time in healthcare, and always wishing the laundry would fold itself. When she’s not rocking the world of romantic fiction, she’s exploring the outdoors, travelling (or wishing she was), hanging out with her amazing family, or, quite frankly, she’s a total introvert and you can usually find her curled up in front of the fire or in the hammock with a romance novel.
Writing romance is Carrie’s not-so-guilty pleasure. She believes in writing genuine and strong characters, promoting positive ideals, that love and happily ever afters are for everyone, kindness is humanity, and she cannot resist a zinging romance.
