My newest release, LET IT BE
ME, is the first in a new standalone series of three. It takes place in a
fairly small, coastal town of Brockton Point, Maine. For the last five years,
Megan has been working toward being a teacher. Being a nanny for Adam’s son,
Charlie, has made that path easier. But now, she needs to leave and he needs to
replace her. This ends up making both of them realize that the tasks ahead of
them are not as easy as they’d thought.
She was going to leave them. It had always been the plan, but it was a someday
plan. Until today. Today, it was real.
I think it’s the case for any major milestone in our lives. We wait forever to
reach certain moments and, once they come, there’s a bittersweet feeling that
leaves us wondering, what’s next? He didn’t know how to be without her, and that
thought froze the air in his lungs.
Sometimes when we’re faced with that next step—and this was certainly the case
for Adam and Megan—we open our eyes in a unique way. Knowing we’re about to say
goodbye to a stage in our lives can make us question what we truly want. This is
what great moments are made of—the fork in the road. Having no choice but to
choose one path might be all we need to realize what our deepest desires really
The sooner she found him the woman he wanted, the sooner she could quiet the
part of her heart that wanted it to be her.
The chosen path might even surprise the person making the choice. When Adam
realizes he’s fallen for Megan, despite his denial and determination not to, he
has to not only choose a path, but be willing to travel unchartered terrain.
He didn’t know how to describe what had happened between them, but he knew it
was powerful enough to warrant taking a closer look at his plans for the
Like with most relationships, Adam and Megan had to reroute, adjust, and
reconsider not only their own individual paths, but how to make those paths
converge. It can often feel like a situation is impossible, but sometimes we
just need to take a detour.
Megan Carter’s spent the past five years nannying for a pint-size boss—the
adorable Charlie—while also navigating her full-size boss, his somewhat grouchy,
way-too-methodical dad, Adam. Now that she’s finally moving on, helping Adam
find her replacement should be easy...except he doesn’t want another nanny. He
wants a wife.
Adam’s been burned by love in the past, so of course he believes finding
someone who can be a partner in raising his son is all that matters. Too bad the
woman helping him search is the biggest believer in love at first sight and
happily-ever-after he’s ever met.
Even as Adam’s funny, charming, and—who would have thought it?—super-hot side
starts to come out, Megan knows that without love, a family would never be
complete. But convincing Adam of that might be harder than she thought.
