THE DONNELLEY BROTHER

Counting Stars

An emotionally charged romance, COUNTING STARS tells the tale of love and loss, and learning to live after everything you’ve lived for has died.
Twenty-two-year-old Reese James has been called bride, wife, and now—widow. At a time when she’d been dreaming of becoming a mother, she became what she never imagined. Her friends and family spent the last year looking at her with pity and discomfort, but now they look at her with impatience.
When will she move on?
When will she move forward?
But how can she move forward when she is standing still, trapped by her past? She had it all with Derek, but now the rings on her finger make her feel like a fraud. Torn between the life she led and a future she can’t imagine, Reese finds herself looking for change. Faced with an opportunity to escape into the wild Alberta Rockies, she takes it.
Reese soon finds herself trekking into the wild with Logan, a broody, arrogant, city-scorned man with a chip on his shoulder. But Logan doesn’t know she’s broken. He doesn’t look at her with pity or discomfort or impatience. When he looks at her, she feels strong. She feels alive.
As they find a rhythm, learning to live together in the wild, Reese learns the hard lesson that maybe her soul wasn’t intended exclusively for Derek. Maybe, just maybe she was one of those rare souls who had always been intended to love with all of her heart twice in her life.
Maybe Logan was always fated to be her future.

A Safe Surrender

A tale of love after betrayal, A SAFE SURRENDER follows one young woman as she finds love and heals the scars carved into her soul. 
At twenty-two, Kamilla Reyes has survived the tragic loss of her mother, the foster system, physical and mental abuse—and Rhett. Once her savior, Rhett had become her prisoner. She knew Rhett inside out: his quirks, anger, impatience, and even the sting of his quick fist. There was no pain Kami thought she could not shoulder until, finally, Rhett crossed a line that couldn’t be uncrossed. 
Desperate for an escape, when a friend shows her an advert for a position at the Donnelley Ranch, Kami packs her bags and disappears. She wasn’t looking for romance, or even friendship. All she wanted was a safe place where she could lay her head each night, a home to call her own, and a steady wage.
She found a whole lot more in Kyle Donnelley, one of four sons who work the Ranch alongside his parents. Before long, Kamilla is working alongside Kyle in the rock-climbing facility, falling ever so swiftly into friendship, she doesn’t realize until it’s too late that she’s also fallen in love.
But can Kami find the strength to surrender herself to a good man after having lived the pain of standing beside a man with demons?

Taking Chances

An inspiring romance, TAKING CHANCES isn’t about making it to tomorrow, but rather, making today count. 
Born and raised in Toronto, Hadley Grades is a city girl living a city life. Blessed to have been born into money, she’s wanted for nothing and has everything—a big house, expensive cars, and opportunity galore.
She has it all. Until she doesn’t.
When her fun-loving brother dies of an overdose, Hadley’s perfect life is flipped inside out as a grief like no other consumes her family. Her father, in a desperate attempt to keep Hadley safe from the city’s temptations and the same fate as her brother, sends her to a safe place what feels like half a globe away. The Donnelley Ranch.
With her bags packed, angry and grieving, Hadley arrives at the place that will be her home for the next six months. She views the ranch as a punishment for a crime she didn’t commit, a solitary purgatory she must endure. Until she makes a friend, and another. And then she meets Collin Donnelley—or more accurately, her face meets his crotch. In public.
The horror and embarrassment of their meeting quickly turns into more, and Collin finds that Hadley makes him want to change his playboy ways. There’s something about her, something about the light of life in her eyes that makes him crave her friendship—crave more. It’s only a matter of convincing her that he’s worth taking a chance on.

A Tender Touch

An inspirational romance, A TENDER TOUCH tells the tale of self-worth and forgiveness, and learning to love after witnessing the burn of betrayal.

At twelve years old, Ember Brighton suffered the ultimate pain. Her father, the man who was supposed to love her unconditionally, walked out and never came back. He didn’t even say goodbye. For ten years, Ember has carried the pain of that night in her heart. For ten years, she’s shied away from men and guarded herself against the possibility of love. Because love hurts—her mom is living proof.

When Ember’s passion for horses leads her back to the Donnelley Ranch, she finds herself working alongside Luke Donnelley. With her guard securely in place, Ember is confident she can keep Luke and his charms firmly in check, until friendship becomes something more. Something dangerous. Something that might cause her pain.

Luke makes his interest clear, and they enter a game of cat and mouse as Ember does her best not to get caught in the trap of his affections. Slowly, tenderly, Luke breaks down the walls guarding Ember’s heart, determined to prove that not only is she worth loving, but that she deserves to be loved and to love in return.
