from Hayley…

My favourite TV show is ‘The 100’. I love old 90s movies about love which mostly include Julia Roberts. My favourites are Steel Magnolias and Dying Young. I was inspired at a young age by Hollywood to imagine stories that were full of angst whilst delivering that Happy Ending that I love.

My stories are all Stand Alone HEAs – they are romantic fiction with some naughty bits thrown in. I adore quirky supporting characters and so the books are rich with flawed heroines and heros who are supported by colourful friends and families.

I am very passionate about my stories and plough a lot of effort into living and breathing these stories that I hope people will enjoy as much as I do.

Failure wasn’t what Cassidy Sinclair expected when she got married … but that’s exactly what she got.

Instead of getting her happy ever after she is struggling to adjust to living back with her unconventional parents and the chatter of small town gossip.

Desi Cardwell was never known for his interpersonal skills and being back in small town Tolvey, sending the rumour mill into overdrive, was not what he wanted for himself.

Both forced home after a decade away, Cassidy and Desi begin an unlikely alliance when she agrees to train with him at his newly opened gym.

Desi is mysterious, guarded and borderline rude but what he lacks in charm he more than makes up for with his hard body and devilish good looks.

Both beautifully broken can they find in each other a light in the dark?
